Bio: I watch Kung Fu, Samurai, Exploitation, Action, Western, and Horror flicks. I can enjoy the classics, but I especially love low budget garbage.
|95 T10||Rashomon (1950) - Aug 13, 2007
"Rashomon is an incredible reflection on the subjective nature of truth; the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars was basically created to recognize its genius."
|20 T1||Tank Girl (1995) - Aug 13, 2007
"Ice-T plays a fucking mutant kangaroo."
|40 T2||101 Dalmatians (1961) - Aug 13, 2007
"This Disney flick is packed with way too much "Awww, aren't these dogs cute?" filler and obvious evil goon bumbling. As a certified dog hater, I had little to no interest in the protagonists. I wanted Cruella to skin those bitches and make herself a new hat or something."
|10 T1||Flirting with Forty (2008) - Aug 05, 2011
"Heather Locklear was 47 when she made this shit nugget about a middle aged woman having a fling with a young guy. Flirting with Forty my ass, you stinking liars."
|35 T2||Galaxis (1995) - Jun 11, 2012
"This horrible sci fi action flick has a couple of humanoid aliens doing battle through modern day L.A. for possession of an all-powerful cosmic crystal that had been put on Earth in the prehistoric past for safe keeping. It's 90 embarrassing minutes of goofy space costumes, wooden acting, and corny lightning effects...but at least I can finally cross "Watch Richard Moll and Brigitte Nielsen fight to the death" off my to-do list."
|75 T8||The Seventh Curse (1986) - Apr 22, 2010
"Silly action/comedy/horror hybrid of the type only made in Hong Kong with an awesome cast of actors and kung fu stars. Chin Siu-Ho gets mixed up with the shady Worm Clan and is afflicted with a deadly blood curse, and the only cure is to eat the eyes of a giant Buddha statue in a temple guarded by an army of fanatics ...It's a manic jungle adventure with black magic, demons, gore, zombies, machine guns and kung fu. Fucking sweet."
|90 T10||Tenchu! (1969) - Jan 06, 2013
"Shintaro Katsu stars as real life Edo period assassin Izo Okada in this tense and dramatic biopic by Hideo Gosha. Katsu gives the strongest and most versatile acting performance of his life as the ragged samurai who is honed into a ruthless killer by his superiors before being inevitably betrayed. Featuring excellent direction, arresting visual composition and some fantastic bloody swordplay, this is an all time classic samurai film. "
|90 T10||Ai no mukidashi (2008) - Jul 19, 2011
"I'm not even sure how I can summarize this 4 hour long Japanese tragic romance/comedy/kung fu movie that won't just totally sell it short, so I won't bother trying. It's inventive, energetic and funny with a dominant theme of love and acceptance, and at the same time incredibly dark and violent. If you're thinking of watching it, be aware that it features more upskirt panty fetish imagery than every high school anime I've ever seen combined. And it's 4 hours long. Totally unique."
|90 T10||The Killers (1964) - Jan 31, 2007
"Lee Marvin playing a tough hit man, plus Ronald Reagan punches Angie Dickinson in the face. What else could you possibly want from a film?"
|60 T5||The Scorpion King (2002) - Aug 13, 2007
"These Mummy flicks were all pretty goofy, but this was the best of them IMO. This was the flick that made people think Dwayne Johnson could be the next Stallone...but then he went and made crap like Be Cool and the Tooth Fairy. For shame, Dyawne."
