Bio: I watch Kung Fu, Samurai, Exploitation, Action, Western, and Horror flicks. I can enjoy the classics, but I especially love low budget garbage.
|65 T6||Pump Up the Volume (1990) - May 03, 2008
"Pretty unexceptional teen rebellion dramedy...Slater is in full on mini-Nicholson mode and everything is 100% predictable from the first moment, but it has a few laughs and the first mainstream film reference to a cock ring that I can think of."
|5 T1||Bio-Dome (1996) - Aug 13, 2007
"I'm not sure how Pauly Shore ever managed to eke out a career."
|40 T2||Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) - Aug 13, 2007
"The rules from the first movie still apply. Why didn't these people learn?"
|85 T10||The Conversation (1974) - Jan 22, 2013
"A professional wiretapper in San Francisco records a potentially dangerous conversation, and is drawn into a world of paranoia and danger when he refuses to walk away from his responsibility for the resulting consequences. It's Mini-Wheats: The Movie....the adult in me appreciated the fine acting, tense plotting and excellent cinematography, but the kid in me couldn't stop laughing at the early 70's "high tech" surveillance gear. A microphone in a pen? AMAZING!"
|60 T5||Morning Departure (1950) - Jul 15, 2012
"A bunch of British navy dudes are trapped in a sunken sub and face certain death with hilariously inappropriate and frighteningly chipper stoicism. I kept waiting for one of the officers to insist that the others should eat him in order to survive. Decent acting, but the direction was pretty flat. The only scene with real palpable tension was when they were dealing out cards to see which men would get the last available scuba suits. That was a great scene in an otherwise OK movie."
|90 T10||Cool Hand Luke (1967) - Aug 13, 2007
"Paul Newman at peak coolness...eating 50 eggs."
|20 T1||G.I. Blues (1960) - Apr 18, 2012
"Well, seen one Elvis flick, you've seen 'em all. Another instantly forgettable story about a crooning soldier packed with embarrassingly bad acting and music."
|75 T8||Roaring Fire (1982) - Nov 30, 2012
"Hiroyuki Sanada in full-on 80's dreamboat mode, beating up thugs in tight blue jeans and never mussing his perfectly feathered hair. This hilarious karate flick features a pack of giggling girls in bikinis, Etsuko Shihomi (badly) pretending to be blind, an extended cameo by professional wrestler Abdullah the Butcher, and Sonny Chiba in a Tom Selleck mustache doing cheap magic tricks and operating a ventriloquist's dummy. In other words, it's fucking brilliant."
|75 T8||The Cat (1992) - Jun 22, 2011
"A hefty slice of Hong Kong insanity about a girl and her cat from space, that are stranded on earth...for some reason, and have to kill a monster so they can go home...or something. The plot hardly matters as strange sights are continually dished up, including craptastic gore, cheap looking puppets and a giant shape-shifting mind-controlling blob monster. The highlight is a fully choreographed dog vs cat fight that lasts several minutes and is quite possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen."
|40 T2||Teen Wolf (1985) - Aug 13, 2007
"I watched this movie more times than I'm comfortable admitting."
