Bio: I have been an avid film fanatic since I was 3 yrs old watching Schwarzenegger, JCVD and Seagal with my father slaughter bad guys, spew one-liners and blow shit up.
I try to be as critically objective with my reviews as possible. I don't buy into hype or follow consensus. I also don't intentionally go against the herd to stand out or be cool. Hate that. I just give out scores I think these movies deserve. Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
100-90: Classic. 90-80: Excellent. 80-70: Solid. 70-60: Meh. 60-50: Terrible. 50-0: Soul crushing.

"Terrible. Bronson mostly blunders his way from one set piece to the next, never really showcasing any skills. He gets the job done, but you can tell his heart's not in it. All the typical 80s action clichés are thrown in here and none of it's done particularly well. Cheap production quality. Straight to VHS vibe. Skip it."

"Apparently a cult classic among the hard-core 80s action fan-base, this one is at least fast-paced and brutally violent. It's a no fucks given, go-for-broke effort. But any social commentary that drove the narrative in the original is now long forgotten, and Bronson is just blowing away anyone who remotely annoys him. It's a straight parody at this point. And for me, it's too far gone to truly enjoy. Perfect for those who like their 80s action cheese... extra cheesy."
|70 T4||War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - Aug 05, 2017|
|65 T3||Death Wish II (1982) - Aug 05, 2017
"Although trashier and lower-rent than the original, it's still highly entertaining in its own way. This time it's a straight revenge flick instead of the general vigilantism of the first. And we get less talking and a lot more killing. Sounds good to me. It's actually very similar to the Taken series, just more primitive, raw, and more ...80s. I always used to catch this movie on TV back in the day, and I'd push aside whatever I was working on to finish it. Bronson was a true charismatic badass."

"Lives up to the hype! One of the best movies of the year, if not the best. An absolute joy from start to finish. Everyone nails their respective roles and the stunts are exhilarating--no green screen here. The humor is on point, and the romance felt genuine. It's fresh and original in a landscape filled with stale reboots and sequels. Loved it."
