5.0 out of 5 stars Solomon Kane, December 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Solomon Kane (DVD)
Making deals with Satan usually is not a good idea and this movie touches on that very subject. Kane is a brutal warrior in ancient times and his enemies know and fear him. Kane and his army go to Africa to fight but find that they are not alone in the universe when they encounter demonic spirits that are killing them one by one. Kane is now alone to fight The Reaper who has come to take Kane's soul due to all the killing he has done. Kane resists and escapes and devotes his life to being a borderline priest. However, old enemies are back and now he must go back to some of his old ways to fight for his life...and his soul. Excellent CGI/effects! This film is rated R for extreme violence and nightmare horror imagery. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare but Good, December 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first question asked by most people who see this film is usually "Where is Sean or Roger!?" They are nowhere to be found in this rare version of James Bond that has been forgotten by most people, even James Bond fans. Bond goes to Switzerland to investigate a potential biochemical threat to Earth! He finds a cross between a brothel and a clinic in the Alps with gorgeous women being "treated" for allergies that turns out to be much, much more than meets the eye. The owner of the "clinic", played by Telly Savalas(Kojak himself!) is a bald(of course!) man named Blofeld that Bond figures out to be a global chemical warfare terrorist! Now Blofeld's plans are revealed, the Earth is in peril, and it is up to Bond to stop them! George Lazenby plays the role of James Bond. Do not feel bad if you have never heard of him. Even Bond fans know this is an oddity amongst masterpieces. Although not as good as the Connery or Brosnan or Craig films, this I feel would make an excellent TV series with the very same cast. You get the idea. Maybe the Man from UNCLE was what stopped them from doing so? Mission Impossible? Similar quality with Bond!

5.0 out of 5 stars Western Masterpiece, December 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Brad Pitt stars in this return to the Hollywood western days. In the 1880's the name Jesse James was famous for being the villain everyone wanted to be like. Some called him the modern day Robin Hood. Some people are just crazy enough to actually try to become him. Robert Ford was just one example. Ford becomes a member of Jame's "gang" seekinh fame and fortune...at any price. The two become rivals as Ford's ambitions get the best of him, resulting in a true to life tragedy that is a true part of American history. One of the most famous outlaws in U.S. history and this is his story. This film is rated R for violence and sexual innuendo. If you are looking for a Young Guns approach which is aimed at a younger audience(teens and twenties), look elsewhere. If you want a western drama with very accurate wardrobe and accents, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kids are all Grown up Now, December 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Revenge can be a real witch! This is a twist on the classic fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel where the kids are now grown up and want vengeance on the witches that are terrorizing the countryside. However, their family has some terrible secrets of their own that puts a plot twist into place that Le Femme Nikita could be proud of! Jeremy Renner(Hawkeye from Avengers) and Fammke Jannsen(Jean Grey/Phoenix from X-Men) star in this scary, action packed fantasy with excellent CGI/special effects! This movie is rated R for violence, nudity, and language but mainly for violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gunfight at the OK Corral...Modernized, December 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tombstone (DVD)
Much like The Young Guns in that this is an all-star cast with Kurt Russell, Sam Elliott, Val Kilmer, Bill Paxton, Dana Delaney, Jason Priestley, Micheal Biehn, and Charlton Heston. WOW. The O.K. Corral is a true story about one of the biggest gunfights in U.S. history! Russell plays the role of Marshall Wyatt Earp and Kilmer plays Doc Holliday. They form a team to take down some outlaws but as with all fights, tragedies occur. Once again, this is a true historical event and they put time and money into costumes, authentic accents and behaviors, and town looks and desert locations in the American West. In an area of Old America known for ruthless aggression, law was needed. Earp and Holliday provided! TRUE STORY!

Tangerine Dream's masterpiece from the greatest fantasy movie ever made starring Tom Cruise will give you goosebumps if you let it. The final credits theme song is Celtic Heaven in musical form and will make you wish you lived in the fantasy world this film depicts. If you like Celtic and fantasy style music, another good artist is Adrian von Ziegler who would gladly play this on their players. Go on YouTube and listen to Adrian's stuff one time and you will be hooked! Tangerine Dream is known for it's New Age style of Celtic and fantasy music and this is their best!

This review is from: Elfquest Final Quest #12 (Comic)
I have loved this series since the 1980's which has been in stores on and off for decades now! This is a rather racy series with attractive women, violence, and a little horror. This would be most similar to Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings if you focused only on the lives of the elves involved. There are several tribes of elves that are now together but there future is uncertain due to humans taking more and more land. Is this the end? Read on and find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mobsters Should Know Better, November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Equalizer (DVD)
I remember the original TV series from the 1980's starring the British gentleman and it was very good. This film however is ten times better! A former agent of the U.S.A. is now living a quiet life in the big city. However, he cannot simply stand idly by and watch an underaged prostitute get used and beat up by her bosses who are Russian mob. This reminds me most of Above the Law or Hard to Kill starring Stephen Seagal in that they are agents that get involved with mobsters that are out to kill them and their lady friends and it turns into a blood bath! Retirement is boring and usually not an option for agents. Why not use your skills to help people who are helpless? Call the Equalizer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Made Skynet!?!?!? Well...sort of....No Spoilers!, November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Terminator Genisys (DVD)
This is one of the best science fiction movies ever made with action, violence, and special effects galore! This is most similar to the very first Terminator but with MUCH more and better content. All types of Terminators from the past movies make an appearance , even a younger Arnold thanks to computer graphics. The fight scenes between Terminators are INCREDIBLE and like something out of a Marvel Comics movie! You read that right; the original Terminator is now on Sarah Conners side just like in another Terminator film(s). Reese is sent back to 1984 to ptotect Sarah Conner, just like in the original movie but this is more than it seems. Now everything has changed and nothing is the same! Emilia Clarke is hot and totally rough in this film! She puts the "girrr" back in girl! There is even a little comedy when original Terminator, now a "good guy", tries to be more human. Hilarious but do not let that fool you; the jokes are very brief but the violence is galore! This film is rated PG-13 for violence, language, and partial nudity. One hint why everything has changed; who would be the one person you would never expect to be bad? The one person throughout all the movies that you would never suspect a betrayal from? The name doesn't sound like a candy bar. One other surprise appearance is a rather recent actor known for playing Doctor Who. You mess with this program, you get thrown to the "Matt". Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alias:Man From U.N.C.L.E., November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (DVD)
This is a remake of the classic TV series that is still ranked right up there with James Bond, Alias, and Le femme Nikita. One of the best spy thriller movies or series ever. The story is about two agents in the 1960's on opposite sides in the Cold War. One agent is CIA and one is KGB. Now they must work together to stop an international spy ring that is making life difficult for both sides! They must find a missing German scientist who is the man to meet to find the international spy ring. This movie is action personified patterned after hits like Mission Impossible, Nikita, and Alias. It is rated PG-13 for violence, partial nudity, and innuendo. Enjoy!
