|77 T8||Murder by Death (1976) - Jun 08, 2016
"The cast is perfect! Particularly loved the parody of powell and loy (and if you thought you'd never get to see niven make a butthole joke you thought wrong!). But everyone just shines and shines and is hilarious. Sellers embraces another funny accent, Falk seems born to play a Bogart parody. Jokes run constantly and range from cheap laughs to witty jabs."
|91 T10||The Tournament (2009) - Sep 05, 2011
"The movie doesn't dawdle at all. It's action from the very opening sequence and after that its action sequence to action sequence. The action shows a lot of variety too. We have martial arts, gunplay, car chases, and even Sebastien Foucan, who showed off his free running skills to great effect in Casino Royale, and his incredible abilities has a major role in the film."
|78 T8||The Blood Brothers (1973) - Feb 19, 2014
"has much more story and emotion than most martial arts films coming at this time, or even since really. chiang and lung ti deliver great performances. the action is lighter than most in favor of story, but it pays off in the climactic battle. the framing of chiang's capture and trial makes it that much more interesting watching everything unfold and unravel to reach that point. cheh chang shows he can capture drama just as well as action."
|88 T9||I Was a Male War Bride (1949) - Feb 04, 2016
"The story is whatever but grant and sheridan have loads of chemistry. The fastpaced banter and jibes are some of grants very best. Lots of hilarious scenarios including of course cary grant in drag"
|1 T1||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!"
|91 T10||Harakiri (1962) - Jan 08, 2016
"Tatsuya nakadai is unforgettable. He brings intensity and sincerity and even dark humor to his character. The scenes in the courtyard are the highlight of course, the backstory is predictable but a acted and paced so well that i remained hooked. The finale explodes in action and damns selfrighteous honor codes effectively. The score created good atmosphere and paired very well with the excellent period sets...i felt transported back in time"
|73 T7||Legendary Assassin (2008) - Aug 16, 2014
"wu and jade make this movie seem like much more than it is and actually had chemistry together. it started to feel more personal than your average low budget action movie. even the action scenes were simple but effective and didn't break the focus of the film. the ending was abrupt and was more "we're out of ideas now let's have the big final brawl" than a natural conclusion to what had gone before. "
|77 T8||Plaga zombie (1997) - Sep 05, 2011
"Plucky young Aregentinians make a good zombie flick! it has no budget whatsover, but it has pacing, humor, and very impressive backyard gore effects. the characters might not have much depth, but they've at least got good individualism...and aren't like the poor, pathetic characters from other low or no budget zombie flicks. "
|83 T9||My Name Is Nobody (1973) - Jun 02, 2015
"a great knowing selfparody. fonda and hill make for a legendary duo. hill's impish performance damn near carries most of the film, but wouldn't survive without fonda to bounce it off of. good direction which replaces lingering squinty-eyed face offs with lingering awkward comedic pieces somehow, in a brilliant way made funnier for the fact they're dragged out. everyone seems in on the joke, even morricone delivers an absurd over-the-top score to go along. so much fun"
|88 T9||Where Eagles Dare (1968) - Oct 27, 2014
"I could say a lot about this spy action escapade adventure movie. I'll keep it to this: There's a brief, wonderful moment where Clint Eastwood dual wields machine guns."
