2.0 out of 5 stars GET SOME WATER TOO., July 20, 2016
This review is from: Fire From Below (DVD)
The Drake Mining Company is set to make a fortune with discovery of isotope L6 while deep cavern mining. The problem with L6 is that it is explosive with water and seeks out wet items such as people, even people on top of a lake of water...just saying. Only Keven Sorbo, now a seismologist, can save Nevada...or wherever.

This is a formula disaster film, one of the lesser quality and lesser known films of prolific writer Jim Wynorski. It barely keeps you engaged.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'M NOT A PEDOPHILE, I'M A LAWYER, July 20, 2016
This review is from: Chubbies (Amazon Video)
Aliens known as Chubbies come to Earth. They enter human bodies through the hard to reach cavity and use them for breeding, then kill the host. Another alien from the planet Snerd is chasing them down and desires to kill them . The action culminates at Moody's Bowl-O-Rama where young adults party on Halloween.

Director, writer Mike C. Hartman is a seventh grader trapped in a grown man's body making all kinds of Chubby jokes. Lloyd Kaufman spoofs President Reagan (He doesn't seem to be a fan.) The special effects are amateur and the dialogue and action is silly. I liked the scene of the two girls bowling, each throwing a gutter ball as they high-five each other on their accomplishment. Guys like to watch girls bowl because that is how we are.

This is for serious Troma fans only, i.e. those that sit through the series of idiotic Troma short films and find them entertaining.

Guide: F-word. Sex and nudity (Ashley Marie Short-zombie nudity, Sikara Kelly.) Not as much sex and nudity as one might expect, but a lot of defecating humor.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT IS TAKING THE MAGNETISM FROM THE EARTH, July 20, 2016
This review is from: The Day the Sky Exploded (DVD)
This 1958 production takes place long before the world could be saved by Bruce Willis. All nations have come together to launch a man into space using atomic rockets. An incident causes an unsuccessful mission as well as Delta asteroids to clump together and head for earth. This was an age were it was okay to get your dog drunk and all the electronic equipment made whirling whistling noise.

Not as good as the later sci-fi productions.


To Live and Die in Amsterdam

1.0 out of 5 stars ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE A COP?, July 20, 2016
This review is for the crime film "To Love and Die in Amsterdam: and not the concert. Amazon in it infinite wisdom and reliance on computers have lumped the reviews together. I apologize to the fans of the concert.

In this MOVIE a crude US NARC teams up with an Interpol agent to tackle the heroin use in Amsterdam. While they are there they undercover a new drug made from fluid from the adrenaline gland from people scared and then subsequently killed. I liked the concept but the acting was bad. Cliche lines were spoken badly and with accents. The soundtrack was way too loud. The gunfire noise didn't come close to matching what was on the screen. Our US agent reads from a journal and it was horrible.

Guide: F-word. No sex. Rear nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT A CEMETERY, IT'S A BURIAL GROUND, July 19, 2016
This review is from: The Levenger Tapes (Amazon Video)
Three young adult go out for an adventure at Chase's ( Morgan Krantz) parent's mountain home. He films everything as he takes Amanda (Johanna Braddy) and Kim (Lili Mirojnick) with him. He hopes to score with Amanda while Kim is more level headed.

The kids become missing and a VHS tape was found and is being viewed by the police. We have the ground cam, the jerking cam, the running cam, and "what was that" scene after scene. The kids running around in the woods with the camera light shining brightly talking low so no one can hear them was inane and annoying.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL I NEED IS A NAME, July 19, 2016
This film takes place 1889-1890. Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) has left the jungle and has assumed being the Lord of Greystoke Manor. Meanwhile the Belgium is in the Congo on a diamond hunt. A chief is willing to assist Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) representing King Leopold if he brings him Tarzan. Tarzan consents due to the arguments of George Washing Williams (Samuel L. Jackson in a rare non-swearing role). Jane (Margot Robbie) insists on coming along.

The original jungle story of Tarzan gets told in flashbacks. Initially I thought this was a sequel to "Greystoke" but soon realized it wasn't. Tarzan does what he does best, communicate with the animals into an improbable action packed climax which reminded be of the old Johnny Weissmuller movies.

Guide: No nudity. Implied sex. No swearing, but Jackson says "You want me to lick his balls too?"

1.0 out of 5 stars REMEMBER THIS PLACE, July 18, 2016
This review is from: Alien Strain (DVD)
Pregnant Rachel (Laura Gordon) was apparently abducted by aliens. Her boyfriend Matthew (Michael Finn) tells the story in an institution as a flashback to both the time before she was abducted and afterwards.

The story was boring. He waited for her return and we waited for something to happen and they waited for the last 10 minutes where you see where their $50 budget was spent.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity. Available at Redbox

They Found Hell

2.0 out of 5 stars NO ONE THINKS THEY BELONG HERE, July 18, 2016
This review is from: They Found Hell (Amazon Video)
A group of college kids who dropped out of drama class create a transporter and accidentally make a gateway to hell...and get sucked in. For most of the film we watch them battle various creatures which would normally make a great film, but since this was made for US TV it got watered down with boring dialogue, except for the guy who died first.

Guide: No swearing, sex or nudity


Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
DVD
Price: $5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE BATTLE HAS ABOUT TO BE STAGED, July 18, 2016
The title pretty much says it all. The Bennet girls have been instructed in the orient in various martial arts, and when sisters fight, well, you get the picture. The film was more drama and romance than simple zombie fighting. Men propose at the drop of a hat.

This production follows in a series of zombie films based on novels, "My Fair Zombie", "Warm Bodies" ("Romeo and Juliet"), that Asylum "Sleeping Beauty" thing, and "Twilight" with Kristen Stewart. Clearly this Zombie film had a serious budget. The movie followed the novel rather well (minus that one thing) as Lily James turned in an excellent performance unaccustomed to "B" movies.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity


Unfriend
Unfriend

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU AND MA RINA ARE NOW FRIENDS, July 17, 2016
This review is from: Unfriend (Blu-ray)
"Unfriended" and "Friend Request" are the same film. I watched it in German with English subtitles. Laura Woodson (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is a popular girl in college and has 837 friends as she is addicted to Facebook. When loner eerie goth looking girl Marina (Liesl Ahlers) sends her a friend request, Laura accepts and notices Ma Rina has dark postings and Laura is her only friend. Marina is weird and Laura's friends don't want her around. When Marina gets snubbed, things happen to Laura's friend.

The film had a lot of jump scares and creepy things that happen.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity
