0% Andròn: The Black Labyrinth (2015) - Aug 03, 2016
"I rarely utterly regret my movie choices, even when the films are stinkers. This is one I wish I could erase from my memory and get my time back. Baldwin is filmed in what i assume to be a self storage facility with a greenscreen and shares no actual physical screentime with any cast member, including the girl playing his own secretary in some hilariously poorly edited moments attempting to hide his isolation. Won't waste time probing the depths of this films garbage. It ends on a cliffhanger!"
68 52% At the Earth's Core (1976) - Aug 20, 2016
"Weird as hell. The soundtrack is spooky and sounds like a very extended psychedelic rock intro..but it really sells the film. Mcclure may not be the hero we want...but he's the hero we get anyway. Cushing is hilarious and way over the top. I didn't mind the dated effects and as i let myself get into the mindaltering soundtrack i actually found some of the psychic pterodactyl bits effective and tense(which has just convinced most anyone reading this to disregard all i say but whatever)"
79 74% Stop Me Before I Kill! (1960) - Sep 18, 2014
"really liked it. the cast was great, kept the whole movie very, very gripping. a few strange camera experiments that didn't really work, but still had fun with them(the p.o.v. of the room basically spinning in the doc's office was much but i got a kick out of it). i liked the way the plot unfolded, even if the end was partially predictable i still didn't peg every detail. has some wonderfully dark moments. "
85 85% Island of Lost Souls (1932) - Mar 25, 2015
"not knowing what to expect, the first shots of the ship in fog that begin the movie told me immediately that this was going to, at the very least, have good enough cinematography to keep me going. but it's fast, it's unsettling, it's fun. laughton is especially great as smarmy, conniving, and evil moreau. loved it."
75 68% She (1982) - Apr 22, 2015
"i mean really this has got to be the ultimate, no-shame B-movie. it is relentless, and full of both talentless heart and precise, exacting schlock. gosh its just so ridiculous, and it's 90 minutes of our various heroes getting caught by various madmen, madgods, madbeasts, madfreaks, madnazis and escaping. i cannot say how deliciously well this hit the spot for a b-movie craving."
86 86% Sicario (2015) - Oct 03, 2015
"Some of the best acting put to film with some of the very best cinematography ( so much of the visuals will stay with me...particularly the dark scenes towards the end) make for an incredibly engaging film. Blunt may never top this one. Very tense story, very real honest characters and a very honest look at reality. "
91 94% Lady Snowblood (1973) - Jun 04, 2016
"How could i not love a 70s japanese splatterfest? Its gorgeous to look at, meiko kaji demands your attention as the lead, and it flows nicely with welldirected outlandish action. I particularly enjoyed how the "chapter" segments were used...then abandoned when the story twisted a bit. The choice of setting it at the end of the 19th century also subtley introduced themes of westernization and imminent warmongering that aren't present in traditional samurai type films."
83 82% Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010) - Apr 03, 2013
"Slightly better than an average popcorn movie. Has some really truly magical moments, great action choreography by Sammo Hung, and the mystery isn't entirely predictable."
90 92% The Baytown Outlaws (2012) - Jan 29, 2013
"A lot of the movie is certainly written with camp in mind, but the direction keeps it far from just a parody of either higher budget action movies or older, low budget cult films. Baytown Outlaws comes out as its own beast, and a glorious beast at that."
80 76% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) - Sep 25, 2016
"Barely remember the 1st one so i went into this fresh. The colors are gorgeous & i missed half of the opening fight just admiring the palette.story is very kungfu movie simple yet the characters get great back story and embellishments that make them larger than the story itself.Good pacing for the action as well as good setpieces.choreography was very good for a wuxia & offered balanced mix between actual movies and wild wire work...though I've never been against properly done wire fu myself."
