Surprised there isn't already a thread for this

Casino(1995) 8/10

Robert DeNiro
Sharon Stone
Joe Pesci
Don Rickles

Martin Scorsese Director

Felt it wasn't as good as Goodfellas. Some good songs on the soundtrack though

pettyfan, probably Katie Holmes best movie to date (Batman was a miscast in my opinion) and Nick Stahl was awesome in it.

This movie and "The Faculty" were a cut above some of the others during that timeframe. The first "Final Destination" was entertaining, but they should have stopped there. Though, I do still get freaked if I hear John Denver's 'Rocky Mountain High' on the radio now.

My last 90's movie was the Cindy Mancini fav "Miracle Beach".

SPHERE 1998... great cast, Dustin Hoffman, Liev Schreiber, Sam Jackson etc. Spooky underwater alien stuff! A pretty underated film in my mind, had some truly creepy moments in it!

HARLEY DAVIDSON AND THE MARLBORO MAN 1991... i love this movie, just got the dvd! "It's better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool".

FIXING THE SHADOW 1992... cool biker flick with Charlie Sheen and Michael Madsen!

STONE COLD 1991... totally cheesy biker action film with Brian Bosworth and Lance Henriksen!

I love this movie also. Big surprise, huh. When they were first about to enter the "spaceship" underwater, the suspense was killing me on what they would find. Great cast as well.

Unforgiven (1992) my favorite western of all time Eastwood, Freeman, and Hackman give unbelievable performances

Almost Heroes (1998) Man I miss Chris Farley

Pulp Fiction (1994) One of Tarentino's best works

Tombstone (1993) my second favorite western of all time
 
Posted by Sam 'The Made Man' Hain (Member # 3150) on :
 
I'm finally after all these years becoming a fan of the western genre. I've been starting with some of the older classics but working up to finally seeing both The Unforgiven & Tombstone.
 
Posted by Valley (Member # 1322) on :
 
Sam and Motley, "Tombstone" is an outstanding western. For an older flick, I highly recommend "The Searchers".
 
Posted by Sam 'The Made Man' Hain (Member # 3150) on :
 
I just saw The Searchers the other night. I thought the movie overall was really good but felt a few of the acting performances were horrible. Those horrible performances were the reason I gave it an 8 instead of a 9 or 10.

Valley, this movie was the only thing I've ever seen Katie Holmes in that I liked, LOL. I agree...The Faculty was an awesome movie. I haven't seen it in awhile. I liked all the Final Destinations, but to be honest, I think I liked part 2 the best.
 
Posted by JAYLEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
LOVE AND A 45... liked it better in the 90's, still... Rory Cochrane is too funny in this!

SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO... man this movie did not age well, but it's still alot of fun, especially when Brandon Lee compliments the size of Dolph Lundgren's "package", that always cracks me up!

RISING SUN... love this movie, great atmosphere. Could have done without Snipes' fancy karate moves in the end though, never thought it fit the film!

Vital Signs, 1990. Bad reviews almost everywhere you look, but I have seen it numerous times and quite enjoy it. Has an 80's feel and Diane Lane is in the prime of her hotness.

AMERICAN SHAOLIN... Bad acting, decent fights!

RAPID FIRE... Not awful, not great, but Brandon Lee could have been something special, had he lived!

PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS... totally forgot about this movie, Everett McGill and Wendy Robie from Twin Peaks, together again, and crazier than ever. great, underrated horror comedy!

TO CATCH A KILLER... Brian Dennehy as John Wayne Gacy, great, atmospheric TV movie!

That film is quality mate. I aint seen it in ages. Im sure the lad in it was in Moonwalker, He played MJ in the kids version of bad.
 
Posted by JAYLEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
Yeah, that was him! It also has AJ Langer, Kelly Jo Minter, Ving Rhames and some other familiar faces in it! I had totally forgotten how great this movie was, total suspense... with all the crawling in the walls stuff!

For those who haven't seen it, WATCH IT!
 
Posted by Helen_S (Member # 5804) on :
 
Totally agree with you both on People under the stairs, great stuff! [Smile]
 
Posted by JAYLEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
DR. GIGGLES... The retard from LA Law wants to kill the semi hot sister from Charmed... that's about it!

ASPEN EXTREME... excellent Ski instructor drama, however lame that sounds. Nice cast... That canadian mountie guy, Peter Berg, Teri Polo etc. Hadn't watched this since the 90's, It was pretty good!

LITTLE ODESSA... very moody russian mob stuff, with Tim Roth, Eddie Furlong and many more, good movie, that I totally had forgot about!

THE LIMBIC REGION... great atmospheric serial killer TV movie with Edward James Olmos and George Dzundza (0r however you spell that). I had to dig this out of the old forgotten vhs bootleg collection. Minor gripe, takes place in San Fran... but obviously shot in Vancouver or something!

PET CEMETERY 2... another Eddie Furlong flick. Not nearly as good as the first one, but Clancy Brown is always fun!

I agree on this one JAYLEE. I own this on DVD as well and love it. I'm not even into skiing, but this movie is catchy for some reason.

Dr. Giggles..hee hee, they've been playing that on Chiller a lot. I just can't make myself watch it again, though!

Just watched The Shawshank Redemption again. I can never get sick of this one. A true work of art.

Yeah, I was actually surprised that I liked more this time! Not into skiing either, but there is just something about it! Has a certain 80's flavor to it as well. Maybe the stuff with Peter Berg getting into drugs and all that, felt a bit forced and rushed, but overall, it's a pretty decent movie.
 
Posted by 80'sRocked (Member # 6979) on :
 
Well said Jaylee.
 
Posted by JAYLEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
Just got a bunch of flicks in the mail!

CHILDS PLAY 2 and 3... love them, not as creepy as the first one, but still good fun. Any Chucky movies made after part 3 is crap!

THE HARD WAY... I had totally forgot how funny this film was, Michael J. Fox and James Woods are hilarious in this!

JUDGEMENT NIGHT... great atmospheric chase movie. I usually don't like Dennis leary, but I always loved him in this role, and Jeremy Piven too!

BOOGIE NIGHTS... one of my all time favourite movies, and probably one the best ensemble cast films ever made! there is not one bad performance in this movie, it's totally funny and sad at the same time... and that's hard to do! Listened to the audio comm. And Paul Thomas Anderson started writing it at the age of 17, that's pretty impressive!

Wedlock, 1991. Starring Rutger Hauer and Mimi Rogers. Pretty entertaining.

The Tommyknockers, by far the worst Stephen King film I've seen [Embarrassed]

TICKS... pretty self explanatory title... horror with ticks, featuring Ami Dolenz and Seth Green amongst others!

Moment of Truth:Why my daughter?

For as little screen time as he had John Turturro put in a dynamite performance. He was an absolute scene stealer if there ever was one.

Last night I was watching the "Chiller" Channel, and I came in to the middle of the movie...Never Talk to Strangers" with Rebecca Demornay and Antonia Banderas. I wanted to know what happened at the end. I ended up falling asleep.

I want to know if Antonio was the bad guy....if he wasn't.. I want to know who was...and why they were terrorizing Rebecca DeMornay.

I would never rent it to watch it again...but it is bugging me not knowing the end.

Can anyone tell me?

I watched Clay Pigeons (with Joaquin Phoenix) this morning. Good movie...9/10

It's been awhile since I've seen this one, but I don't think Antonio was the bad guy, but I can't remember who was. I really don't think he was, but again, I'm not sure.

Pettyfan-I didn't think he was going to be the bad guy either...that seemed too obvious...but he did have a file on her that she found in his apartment...there was a private detective following him...but I fell asleep before I could find out what he found out about him.

I watched Predator 2 (1990). I struggled somewhat with the beginning, because – apart from Danny Glover who simply had to reprise his role of Lethal Weapon and Gary Busey, being his usual self – the acting was pretty bad. Bill Paxton was even more annoying than he was in Weird Science.
Anyway, from the second half on this movie was actually pretty good, packed with action and even funny at times. Overall, I really liked it. I give it a 7/10.

Oh and jdocster… this Predator spares (pregnant) women and children. [Wink]

"Look Charlie, some con men sell life insurance. The church sells afterlife insurance. It's brilliant! Everyone thinks you might need it, and no one can prove you don't."

Nuns on the Run.... A very funny movie from 1990. 2 men who are in organized crime are on the run from their boss who is trying to kill them. They stumble upon a convent and disguise themselves as nuns to hide out. A little slow at the start, but gets very funny later on. I recommend a watch.

I just got done watching Sleeping with the Enemy.

I remember when it came out, I thought that the 90's had some hope for some decent movies.

I always like the scene where they dance to "Brown-Eyed Girl."

I always thought the woman who played her mother was too old to be her mother...she looked 80 in the movie, and Julia looked about 23. That meant she would have had to have had her at age 57. That didn't seem too realtistic.

I love the house that Julia gets in the movie, it reminds me alot of my own house.

Alien Resurrection.

I can remember seeing this in the cinema, and thinking that it was nowhere near as good as Alien or Aliens. My opinion on it hasn't changed.

Great flick.. Kurt is awesome..
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
Yeah, that was a good movie. I remember I liked the special effects. That movie that was out a few years ago, Ladder 49, with Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta couldn't compare to Backdraft. I know it's a little different, but I felt like they were trying to make a "Backdraft 2".

Great point. I too couldn't help but compare it.. Though it wasn't bad..

My dad enjoyed Ladder 49 more than Backdraft. He says it was more realistic. Considering he has been doing that is whole life, he would know. I liked ladder 49 better too, but Backdraft is fun to watch too!

Sad to find out that other star Jonathan Brandis has died in 2003, even before Rodney.

Trees Lounge, starring Steve Buscemi, who also wrote and directed. It really wasn't all that great, but there were a lot of stars in it that had small roles- Mimi Rodgers, Daniel Baldwin, Cloe Sevigny, Carol Kane and Mark Boone (I think that's his name) who is now on Sons of Anarchy (he plays Bobby Elvis).

My Cousin Vinny. Never gets old. The quotes from this movie come out of my mouth daily.

"I guess the f'n thing is broke."
"You got mud in the tire."
"The two yoots."
"I wore this ridiculous thing, for you."
"Shout it out when you know the answer."
"What are you? A f'n world traveller?"
"Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same person who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?"

Goodburger (1997)

I own a red Nissan 300ZX just like the one Kenan crashed into Sinbad's car!

I never watched Goodburger until this year, on its 12th anniversary. I would have been just graduating from high school in 1997, and I wouldn't have given a flip for some Nickelodeon fluff. But now, with a daughter and stepkids of my own, I am discovering that the movies they like are pretty cool, actually!

People always say, "they don't make em' like this anymore" to just about any genre. But a movie like Sneakers, really hasn't been seen since, that I can remember!

Great ecclectic cast, good solid story, suspense, light comedy a little violence, and a great score by James Horner. This movie has amazing repeat watchability, even though it is a twist and turn kinda movie!

Solid flick! I miss this kind of filmmaking!

Im not big on Travolta, but this is a really decent movie, that I watch regularly! good characters, good dialogue (probably cuz it's based on the book), great unorthodox score and really good cinematography.

I have an immense distaste for rape scenes, but it is so poignant and hardhitting here, that the movie would suffer if it wasn't shown as the truly brutal act that it is. It is the focal point of the whole story, and I think that the movie deals with it in a smart, yet disturbing way. Highly recommended.

Dumb And Dumber has more quotable lines per min. that any movie ever made!

When a line like this, is a throwaway line, that is comedy gold!

MotleyRulz,

I remember seeing "The Devil's Advocate" in the Cinema. I thought it was a great film.

It was also the first time I'd ever seen Charlize Theron.

What did you think of it?

I saw A Family Thing http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116275/

It stars Robert Duvall and James Earl Jones. It's about a white guy from Arkansas (Duvall) who after his mother dies, finds out that his real mother is black. So, he goes to Chicago to look up his mothers family, and, his older brother (Jones).

I'll give it a 7/10...

Yes, you're not wrong, either, Pittsburghgirl! I love that scene too! You may remember it furthermore features a cameo by Chris Cornell as a man who comes outside to listen to the song on that stereo, which is Jinx by Tad from their album 8-Way Santa. And their frontman Tad Doyle has a cameo, too, in which he embarrasses Bridget Fonda when she talks flirtatiously on the telephone to what she assumes is Matt Dillon!

My brother gave me a copy of this a while ago and I hadn't gotten around to watch it. After I heard the hype here, I had to pop it in last night. It was a very odd movie, but entertaining. It did however take me a while to get into to, but it picked up nicely after about 1/2 hour. David Della Rocco's character as "Funny Man", was the best part of this entire movie. He stole the show for me and cracked me up with some of his quotes..... wish I could post more of them, but they're pretty bad. [Big Grin]

I did not know that was Tad Doyle. I loved all the cameos- the Pearl Jam guys, Chris Cornell, the Alice in Chains performance. I wish I could have been in that movie!

CHASERS 1994

For some inexplicable reason, one of my favourite movies from the 90's! Fun road movie, directed by Dennis Hopper. Tom Berenger is great as the gruff Navy officer, Erika Eleniak shows her wonderful "talents" once again, like she did in UNDER SIEGE [Big Grin] And Gary Busey has a funny but memorable cameo, with some hilarious lines. A lot of fun characters (amongst others, Hopper himself, as a perveted dress salesman) and some great South Carolina locations (a place rarely seen in movies).

Check it out....

6/10

Although I like the movie, it's not one of my favorites. Nobody understands why I don't love it as much as most, especially since I'm a big Robert DeNiro fanatic, and I also quite like Al Pacino.

I do enjoy DeNiro's role a lot, and the shootout scene after the bank robbery is great. Somehow, Pacino's performance seems so over-the-top, and I don't care for the trilogy of romantic sideplots involving DeNiro, Pacino, and Val Kilmer's characters.

The supporting cast is talented - Jon Voight, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Natalie Portman, Dennis Haysbert, William Fitcher, Amy Brenneman, Ashley Judd, and Hank Azaria. Additionally, I've enjoyed a lot of Michael Mann's directorial work, such as The Insider, Manhunter, and Collateral, but this one is a bit of a letdown to me.

I'd rather watch Copland, Goodfellas, Casino, The Insider, Mean Streets, or even The Score instead.
 
Posted by 80'sRocked (Member # 6979) on :
 
The shootout scene in Heat is one of the best ever I think. Copland never gets enough credit and The Score is a guilty pleasure of mine. Most people I talk to don't think much of either.

I also like Sliver alot.

Notting Hill (1999). Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts correspondingly portray a down-on-his-luck travel bookshop owner and a world-famous actor who meet and fall in love when she walks into his bookshop. They could end up together -- if the gossip-hungry press to say nothing of her actor boyfriend don't get in the way.

Jurassic Park... I love Spielberg (for the most part) But the two kids, and my dislike for Sam Neill and Laura Dern kinda killed this movie for me! When I was younger, I couldn't put my finger on what it was, now I know!

It's not a bad movie, and Goldblum is god in my book! The cgi is still pretty impressive to this day, and it has a lot of good scenes.

If they had replaced the two leads, and axed the kids, I would enjoy this movie a lot more!

CHILL FACTOR-1999....

Bad writing, bad dialogue, bad acting...... why was this movie made???

Skeet Ulrich and Cuba Gooding have no chemistry, and not much to work with here!

On a side note.... Skeet, Cuba... what happened???

Skeet was prepped to be the new Brad Pitt or something, then he just dissapeared! I last saw him on that show Jericho, which was also cancelled, if I remenber correctly! Poor little Skeet!

And Cuba.... I never thought that he was that good of an actor, certainly not Oscar worthy, but he took the statue for Jerry Maguire, none the less! And then it was all down hill from there...
Rat Race... Snow Dogs... Boat Trip... DADDY ****ING DAY CAMP!!!! Wouldn't hold my breath for another Oscar there, Cuba...!

Just my observations...

I hadn't seen this one since it played on HBO during its initial run. It still holds up as a fun-on-the-slopes romp with a definite '80s vibe. If you've seen Hot Dog or Snowballing (or even 2001's Out Cold), then it's all familiar territory.

They fall in love, but he has a congenital heart ailment. Rosie Perez, Kyle Secor and Willie Carson feature in addition. Incidentally, I have read that this was one of Rachel Scott's esteemed films.

A solid little mystery/thriller that I had completely forgotten about. They seemed to do these neo-noir/Hitchcoockian thrillers really well in the '90s. Final Analysis and Blink were two other good ones from the same period. I took most of these for granted at the time, but now with the relative dearth of decent mystery/suspense films coming out of Hollywood, I'm really rediscovering some of these forgotten gems.

Those people need to brush up on their movie knowledge a bit.... I submit to them...

Desperate Hours: A great remake, and I almost never say that!

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man: Kickass action flick with a funny twist!

The Last Outlaw: Dark and bloody western, with a great cast!

F.T.W.: Dusty, dirty, emotional semi road movie with some beautiful locations and good performances.

Bullet: Dark, sad street reality, with tragic characters, but brilliantly done.


True... the late 90's were no friend to the mickster, but those flicks mentioned above, all hold up today!

SPEEED..... '94: Oh man, this movie was worse than I remembered! The dialogue is so bad, all the characters are so annoying, and I just hoped the bus would crash and kill all those whiners in a heap of twisted metal and fiery gore! Of course that didn't happen.

HIGHER LEARNING.... '95: If your making a movie against racism and racial stereotypes, it would probably be a good idea, not to perpetuate those lame stereotypes in said movie! Singleton got lucky with Boyz N' The Hood, and hasn't done anything worthwhile since. This pile of a movie being one of the main offenders. They are all here... the angry black guy, the hippie chick, the misguided hick, the wise professor, the dateraping jock etc. If these tired clicheés actually had some form of transformation or depth, then I could go along with it... but they really don't. And the message of this movie is completely lost!

For your information, Buffalo-Girl, Judge Dredd is from 1995. I trust that that helps. [Wink]

Judge Dredd was a huge disappointment back in the day,
at least among the comic book fans.

But i would like to watch it again, i think that i could even like it.
I´m so open minded nowadays [Smile]

thank you i knew it was from the 90's but wasn't sure of the year lol? hey atomik you probably would like it i think one of the problems with the movie was sly's constant statement " i knew you'd say that" it was just used too many times in the movie and made his acting real corny in my opinion?

FEAR (1996)... Really enjoyed this film , It stars Mark 'Markey Mark' Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon.
Reese plays a 16 yr old who has just hooked up with her mr perfect (Marky), but he ends up being an absolute Psychopath. Well worth seeing.

Mannequin: On the Move (1991)

- Not really a sequel to Mannequin (only one actor from the first flick, Meshach Taylor)
but basicly the same idea here.
Directed by Stewart Raffill (The Philadelphia Experiment)

This was actually not that bad, there´s still some 80s style silliness to enjoy.
William Ragsdale and Kristy Swanson are ok at best
but hey it´s a no brainer plot anyway.

Some very 80s like tunes on the soundtrack too.

Starts off slow, but gets GREAT. Brilliant movie. Sean Penn does a nice job in this one too. This is actually one of my faves from the 90's period.

The muscles from Brussels, hustles and tussles as an awol legionaire in the underground street fighting circuit of L.A. Oddly enough, I remembered the fights being better, and the story and acting being worse. It was the other way around, actually. One of JCVD's better acting performances, but the fight choreo was underwhelming.

I rented AMITYVILLE DOLLHOUSE and it was just as "good" as the title would have you think!
This movie came out in the late 90s but I had just heard about it a few weeks ago. Wow. They really are running out of ways to make AMITYVILLE sequels when they have to make a DOLLHOUSE one. I believe they made one about an evil LAMP too, but I missed that one. Sucker for punishment - Im sure I'll rent it ONE day!

You really should. It is a truly powerful film. im not ashamed to say that I get a lump in my throat, when I watch this movie... and that takes a lot, believe me. Half of the people I recommended this too, either couldn't finish it, or were crying like babies at the end. It's pretty rough viewing. But a great and underrated movie about a largely forgotten war.

Empire Records. I think I watched this one 15 years too late. I didn't really like it. Renee Zelwiger (sp.?) was annoying as usual, but not quite as ugly as she is now. What has she done to her face? My husband said she looks like she sucked on a lemon- we just watched a newer movie she was in, Appaloosa, and she looked horrible! And her "singing" was awful in Empire Rec. too.

I think you're right about watching it too late! This movie is so inherently 90's, as Valley Girl is 80's! I watched it back in '95,loved it, and can therefor watch it again and again, due to the nostalgia factor. But if I watched it for the first time today, I doubt it would have the same effect. Some movies are like that, and some are timeless classics.

Was cleaning out my closet, and throwing piles of old VHS tapes out, but stumbled upon a few golden oldies, that I haven't got on dvd yet. Man, I had totally forgotten about half of these movies. So I watched some of them this weekend and yesterday.

MATINEÉ 1993

 -

I love this this movie! love the southern Florida setting, the genuine 50's feel, the classic B-movie references. And tying in the very real nuclear scare with the scare of monster B-movies is a great premise. If you haven't seen this, check it out!


TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS 1990

 -

For some reason, the title on the tape said FILOFAX?? I guess that was an alternate title. But anywhooo, this movie was a lot of fun! Always liked Belushi, but was never a fan of Charles Grodin. He seems unlikable to me, no matter what role he plays. But when he is suppose to be, it fares a little better.


BRAIN DONORS 1992

 -

An obvious attempt to make a modern day Marx Brothers comedy. And it is actually pretty funny. I have to admit that I found it funnier in the 90's. But it still has a lot of laughs. Great performances by John Turturro and Mel Smith!
 
Posted by JAY LEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
And I found my old tape of Angel Town and Perfect Weapon, that was so worn out, that I really hope they will be released on DVD. Angel Town had a limited release, but is now up to 173 bucks on Amazon, due to its rarity. And Perfect Weapon I have not been able to find! Two great old, cheesy Martial Arts classics!

LOVE AND A 45 1994


 -

I can't stand Rene Zellweger, but she's not too bad here. I belive this was made before Natural Born Killers, and is in the same vein. But I prefer this one. Don't know if it is out on DVD yet.

The Hughes brothers Vietnam/coming home/ode to blaxplitation epic! A great movie, but not without its flaws.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
Dead Presidents is almost a classic IMO,
but i remember that it drags a little bit during the middle of the movie.

Never seen Love and a .45. Sounds interesting.

Zellweger seems to be one of those, who pick interesting roles early in career,
but play it so safe later on that everyone loses interest.
 
Posted by JAY LEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
Yeah, I liked her way better in the early to mid 90's. Like this or Empire Records. Think she had a small role in Dazed And Confused, If I remember correctly. And speaking of D&C, Both Wiley Wiggins (Mitch Cramer) and Rory Cochrane (Slater) from that movie appears in Love And A 45. They had a whole little film fraternity thing going down there in Texas in the early to mid 90's.

They had a whole little film fraternity thing going down there in Texas in the early to mid 90's.

Affirmitive, Jay Lee, Renee Zellweger was in "Dazed And Confused." Depending on what you read, it was either Nesi White or the girl in the blue pick-up truck. Her role was uncredited, by the way.

Friday the 13th Jason Goes to Hell,not a bad effort for the time and not the worst in the series.
The only real thing wrong with it is the Jason in it does not look much good this time which is a shame because Kane Hodder was one of my favorites playing him.But overall not a bad film.

Classic.

Everytime I watch this movie, it brings home exactly how lazy Tarantino has become over the years.

Fans should buy the SE which features some excellent deleted scenes (a new character in McKlusky, played by Nina Siemaszko, Casey 'Young Guns' Siemaszko's sister) and they even mention a Nurse named Bonnie! (Jimmy's wife in 'Pulp Fiction').

One of my favourites of the early 90's! Revenge of the middle class, with a side of crazy!

TOTAL RECALL-1990

I had actually written this movie off, in my mind. But watched it on tv last night, and it was a lot better than I remembered. Sure, some of the effects were pretty hoakey looking (especially on an HD channel), those reddish rear projection shots of Mars weren't fooling anybody, and some of the sets looked like a bad episode of Dr. Who. But all in all, a lot of fun.

I've been having a bad time lately with starting movies, but not watching them to the end. I just get distracted too easily. The last 90's flick I was able to watcj from beginning to end was:

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991):

If you're a Godzilla fan like I am, how is it even possible to tear yourself away from this beauty? This is perhaps the most action-packed and entertaining Godzilla movie in the whole franchise. The fight scenes and destruction is awesome! And this is the film where we're fisrt introduced to Mecha-King Ghidorah. So hands down, there's plenty of action in this film to keep one entertained until the end. And it also happens to have a pretty good storyline that gives some backstory to the origins of Godzilla. Overall, this is simply a must-have for any Godzilla fanatics.

American Samurai (1992)

One of the last Cannon Pictures flicks.
Low-budget arena fighting with wooden performances
from David Bradley, Mark Dacascos and Valarie Trapp.
Ultracheesy but oh so entertaining [Smile]

Posted by JAY LEE (Member # 6345) on :
 
More Cannon cheese for sure, but Dacascos is the man! He doubled for more or less everyone in this flick. Sometimes even fighting himself, thanks to editing! If any american MA actor deserved more credit, then it's Mark Dacascos.

For those that wanna see him at his best, check out...

Only The Strong
Crying Freeman
Drive
Brotherhood Of The Wolf
China Strike Force

All those titles just rock big time. I watched drive when it first came out and it was nice to see a mix of jackie chan/van damme/sho kosugi mixed into one actor. Im not a huge fan of (now please forgive spelling) capuwhera that he has shown he can do in other movies. If you havnt already seen it try watching Gymkata...you should really like it..think its around 84 but i watched it in 86 so could be a lot older but i doubt it.

The King of the Kickboxers (1991):

I think me and you have something in common aTomik...I love these ultracheesy low-budget gems too. And THE KING OF THE KICKBOXERS is just that..low-budget cheesyness in all it's spleandor. Since you like American Samurai, as mentioned above..then I'm pretty sure you'll love this little beauty too..if you've not seen it already that is. It has Billy Blanks as a villian, what more do you need?

Here's the Wiki for more info on the film:

Too Young to Die? (1990)

Too Young to Die? is a 1990 television movie starring Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis.
It touches on the debate concerning the death penalty. It is based on a true story.

The film is loosely based on Attina Marie Cannaday, who along with David Gray and Dawn Bushart,
killed Ronald Wojcik, in Harrison County, Mississippi on June 3, 1982.

Juliette Lewis was very good in this, she was just 17 when this was filmed.
Brad Pitt was solid as the sleazy Billy Canton.
Decent movie but it really tells just one side of the story.

I hate the finnish dvd cover art where Juliette holds a gun.
She doesn´t have a gun in this flick [Mad]
Here´s the french dvd cover:

COLLEGE KICKBOXERS- 1992

 -

I like my cheese.... especially my martial arts cheese, but this was pretty damn dire, to say the least! So cheap it hurts, laughable acting and dialogue, and the most ridulous villains i've ever seen. The only saving grace was Tang Tak Wing as the kung fu master. He also directed the action scenes, which as a result, came out above average for an american MA flick. But as a whole, this was close to unwatchable. I couldn't even laugh at its awfulness, which is an important factor with these kinds of movies.

Watched The Arrival yesterday.

Awful movie. I can't understand why it has as much as 6.1/10 on IMDb. Much less can I understand why, on top of that, everyone calls it "underrated". Overlooked, perhaps. But as it stands I would personally call it overrated. Way overrated.

I'm not sure what was worse. The acting, the script, or the special effects? It was pretty bad through-and-through. And I even like Charlie Sheen. His performance here was as awful as the movie itself, though.

Bright Angel, starring Dermot Mulroney, Lili Taylor and Sam Shepard. Bad movie, slow moving, and almost no plot. I was hoping for so much more from the description. Filmed in 1990, released in the U.S. in 1991.

Recently watched three of the rather dubious "superhero" flicks from the 90's. And while they may not have had the budgets or CGI technology of more recent efforts of that genre, I kinda liked them. They are not GREAT movies, but certainly entertaining, and with that nostalgic old school feel, that you just don't get from the newer films!

THE SHADOW- 1994

 -

My favourite of the three. Baldwin is good, the 1930's period setting works, and the villain is pretty cool.


THE PHANTOM- 1996

 -

In the cheesier end of the scale, we find The Phantom! Billy Zane in purple, junkhugging tights, no less! Again 1930's something period piece. Lacks some of the cool style of The Shadow, but with Treat Williams and Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa on villain duty, it comes out all right.


SPAWN- 1997

 -


Captures the dark and disturbing world of Todd McFarlanes comic pretty well. Michael Jai White is good as Spawn, and John Leguizamo is fun as Clown! Nice visual style, though some of the effects show their age, and it's a bit heavy on the one liners.

The Temp (1992)

This was a decent early 90s thriller directed by Tom Holland (Fright Night)
It started very nicely but became sillier and sillier towards the end.
And the ending was a total letdown.

I liked the cast though.
Timothy Hutton and Lara Flynn Boyle did a good job.

Just watched this decent T&A college comedy.
It was made in ´89 and released in 1990.
Starring Kristy Swanson and Sasha Jenson.

Swanson has a double role and she has some wild outfits
so this movie is a must see for her fans.

See the pervert Dean Pulver, two horny kids constantly peeping nude girls
and lots of pretty Wamma Bamma sorority girls.

The other stars are Ronny Cox and Michelle Phillips.

The movie starts slowly but there´s some interesting twists after the first 45 mins.

OK..so I finished watching Two Hands. It wasn't too bad...It didn't blow me away either though.
The actors all gave good performances..especially Rose Byrne who I'd say caught my attention the most. But, I just didn't buy into her and Ledger's relationship...I dunno, they came off as more brother/sister type deal to me. Maybe that's how it was supposed to be though huh? I was kinda disappointed with Bryon Brown's role though as I felt he came off a bit weaker than he should have been. But maybe that's just me.

I also really dug the ending when the kid just strolls in the joint and passes Ledger and enters the room and......welll...you know what happens...I won't spoil it for anyone else. That was a rather cool ending.

So overall, this movie was alright...But I wouldn't rank it in my top 10 action/gangster films.

It was a decent flick.
Some funny scenes and the supporting cast was not bad at all:
Frank Langella, J.T. Walsh, Michael McKean, James Earl Jones...

But i can understand why this one flopped:
the star of the movie, Lenny Henry, just wasn´t good enough.
(He had a 3-movie deal with Disney but it was canceled after this one did some damage)
Also, there´s too many unnecessary F-words and it was too violent for it´s own good.

Dead On: Relentless II (1992)

This was a decent direct to video sequel.

L.A. Detective Sam Dietz (Leo Rossi), struggling to emotionally survive his previous big case (from in the first Relentless film)
is unwillingly paired with a shady FBI agent Kyle Valsone (Ray Sharkey),
during a case tracking another serial killer (Miles O'Keeffe), who kills seemingly at random.
Meanwhile, Dietz's wife Carol (Meg Foster) now estranged from him due to his long hours,
tries to deal with her current situation and their uncertain future. (Wikipedia)

It was nice to see Sharkey and O´Keeffe and
i liked the fact that most supporting actors reprised their roles.

Relentless parts 3 & 4 are available on dvd as a double feature
so i gotta get that and see how this Dietz saga ends.

I was listening to the commentary. He was saying how King wrote a lot further on the characters at the end, whereas the film just quickly sums up. But that the whole spider thing is how it is in the book.

Airbourne (1993):

I think it's safe to say most people on this planet have seen this one at least once...and if you haven't...what the hell are you waiting for? In describing this movie, the easiest most conveniant definition would be that it's quite simple the RAD of the 90's for rollerbladers. It's a good teen family flick that everyone can enjoy. But for me, the highlight is easily Seth Green...

Green is so funny in this that even after a crappy day, I somehow have a smile on my face after watching him in this movie. So yeah, if you have not seen this one..I highly recommend checking it out for good clean family night fun.

I re-watched Roger Corman's "Frankenstein Unbound" (1990), which a lot of folks hate and some really love. Put me down in the latter category. While not a perfect film, it's a thoughtful, well-done film version of an excellent book. It is quintessential Roger Corman and particularly entertaining if you seen at least a couple of the Corman Poe films. Killer cast: John Hurt, Raul Julia, Bridget Fonda, Michael Hutchence, and Jason Patric.

aTomiK, I love the WB Archive, but I feel bad for folks living outside the U.S. since due to rights and licensing issues, they can't ship outside the U.S. (This is a good use of ebay, I think.) I was at a convention and saw some of the discs that a guy had bought up from the WB Archive and was selling. They looked nice--good pressing, good manufacturing. I think that it's the wave of the future for back-catalog films.

"A young Marine is kidnapped by terrorists in Lebanon. His twin brother,
frustrated at his inability to get any kind of information from the government about his brother's plight,
travels to Lebanon with a plan for his own rescue operation." IMDb

This was a fun low-budget action flick produced by Menahem Golan and shot in Israel, of course.
Starring Michael Pare in a double role, Lorenzo Lamas with a funny southern accent
and always pretty Jennifer Runyon.

Not a bad flick for b-movie lovers.

Nope, but I just looked it up, and checked out the trailer. It looks interesting.

Another decent film in that same capacity is the german movie North Face from '08.
 
Posted by Bernie_Lomax (Member # 8571) on :
 
I think you'll enjoy Touching The Void. It's like a film / documentary but more doco than anything else. It is honestly a good watch. I don't go around endorsing things unless I genuinely think that its good.

Thanks for the heads up about North Face. I'll definitely check it out. I love these kind of movies. They give you a rush. I like Cliffhanger also due to the awesomeness of how the movie sounds through my home theatre system. Sometimes the sound can make a major difference, not enough to redeem a bad movie but a difference all the same.

The Cruise - 1998

It follows a bus tour guide in New York city (Timothy 'Speed' Levitch) for 2 hours. A great insight into how many intellectuals and extraordinary people go unnoticed. The amount of knowledge that this guy has is more than extremely impressive. Speed is a very prolific thinker, that's for sure. He has many deep views including philosophical, sociological and metaphorical.

I highly recommend this for anyone who has not seen it. It was shot in black and white mainly due to film costs and not to appear artistic, but it is arty anyway.

If you haven't seen it, it is definitely worth a watch, I think.

I bought this film in small DVD shop. Loved in VHS format as a rental. Even glad that it's part of my library now.

Cadence is a 1990 film directed by (and starring) Martin Sheen, in which Charlie Sheen plays an inmate in a United States Army stockade in West Germany during the 1960s. Sheen plays alongside his father Martin Sheen and brother Ramon Estevez. The film is based on a novel by Gordon Weaver.

Pfc. Franklin Bean (Charlie Sheen) gets drunk and strikes an MP after the death of his father. As punishment, he is thrown into a stockade populated entirely by black inmates. But instead of giving into racism, Bean joins forces with his fellow inmates and rises up against the bigoted prison warden, MSgt. Otis McKinney (Martin Sheen).

in the cold of the night 1990- an erotic thriller from nico mastorakis starring jeff lester,adrianne sachs,marc singer,david soul and shannon tweed.
very stylishly shot thriller from nico mastorakis which might be about as daft as they come but is still a quite a fun watch with rarely a dull moment and with more than its fair share of skin on display,especially if you watch the uncut nc17 version!

It was again written and directed by Kevin Tenney.
Starring Ami Dolenz, Christopher Michael Moore, Timothy Gibbs, Laraine Newman and Julie Michaels.

This was more like a mystery thriller with some horror elements but it was an entertaining film.
Some nice camera tricks and solid acting.

Ami Dolenz was supercute and Julie Michaels was also pretty hot as the evil spirit.
It was also nice to see Todd Allen in a cameo as a garbageman.

Now I need to watch Infested aka Ticks (also 1993) again someday
because i totally forgot that Dolenz was also in that one.

Clay Bidwell (Joaquin Phoenix) is a young man in a small town who witnesses his friend, Earl (Gregory Sporleder), kill himself because of the ongoing affair that Clay was having with the man's wife, Amanda (Georgina Cates). Feeling guilty, Clay now resists the widow when she presses him to continue with their affair as if nothing has happened.

Clay's problems worsen when he inadvertently befriends a serial killer named Lester Long (Vince Vaughn), who murders the nagging widow in an attempt to "help" his "fishing buddy." Clay is horrified, but does not go to the police for fear of his role in his friend's suicide coming to light. But that doesn't matter for the police, as well as for a savvy female FBI agent (Janeane Garofalo) and her partner (Phil Morris), who see Clay as their prime suspect. Yet Clay doesn't tell them of his "friend," who has confessed his crimes to him.

I think Juliette Lewis is a fantastic actor as I do with C.Thomas Howell.

This is a nice little erotic/thriller B-flick starring William Katt as a decent politician corrupted by the evils of sex, lust, and strippers. Yup, that's a good enough synopsis for me. Oh yeah, there's some kind of murder/mystery thrown in there somewhere too.

I don't really mind the American remake of "La Femme Nikita." It's a good enough film, but it pales so much by comparison to the original, which I think is one of the best action films ever.

Frankenhooker (1990)

"A medical school dropout loses his fiancée in a tragic lawnmower incident, and decides to bring her back.
Unfortunately, he was only able to save her head, so he goes to the red light district in the city
and lures prostitutes into a hotel room so he can get parts for his girlfriend." (IMDb)

This was even more entertaining than i remembered!
The film was directed by Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Brain Damage)
James Lorinz is cool as Jeffrey "Jersey boy" Franken
and i love Patty Mullen as Elizabeth Shelley. So sad that this was her last role.
I also loved the interview and making of features.

Lots of funny scenes, beautiful women and cool special effects.
Cult classic!

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
"Wanna date? Wanna party?" "Frankenhooker" is very funny. (Favorite line: "I'm becoming dangerously amoral.") I don't have the special edition with the extras, but I'm sure, aTomiK, that Hennenlotter somewhere mentions the phone call he received from the U.S. ratings board: "Your movie should be rated 'S for sh**.'" Henennlotter makes really sick and funny movies. Check out his newest, "Bad Biology." It's completely unhinged and even crazier than "Brain Damage," another favorite.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
Maybe he says that line in the commentary track but i haven´t checked it.
What they said was that the ratings board gave the movie "the eagle eye"
so no gore & blood and that´s what the sfx group tried to avoid and did it well.

I´ll ask if my brother already has Bad Biology.

Sliver (1993):

 -

Even though i'm not much of a fan of William Baldwin, (or any of the Baldwins for that matter), I can still tolerate him in this film. The reason is mainly because it's just a good all-around erotic/suspense flick. Not quite up to par with the novel it's based off of, but hey, what novel based film is?
And might I add I think Sharon Stone is still pretty damn hot in this and quite good at playing the quiet, timid damsel with a sheltered wild side.
So yeah, I still like this movie and I think other fans of this particular genre would agree. And if you haven't seen..I can certainly recommend. [Smile]

i watched la setta 1991 aka the sect directed by michele soavi and written by dario argento.

la setta italian trailer - http://youtu.be/1Kt2woCrwdw

starring kelly curtis and herbert lom ,it's a decent early 90s italian horror outing from the director of the excellent stagefright(1987) which is based on a devil worshipping cult in frankfurt germany .

to be honest i did not think this was quite up to the high standards of michele soavi's previous directorial outings stagefright and the church but i still found a lot here to like.

the plot was completely bonkers and there's some real strange scenes here - the rabbit changing channels on the tv using the remote control,plus kelly curtis being attacked by some weird emu type bird [Confused]

i did like the music score by pino donaggio ,plus it was cool to see the pink panthers herbert lom on the screen again.

overall no classic but still an above average italian horror flick!

i've heard so many good things about delamore delamorte but never got round to seeing it,i will definitely track it down.

i've only seen stagefright,the church and the sect and the sect is easily the weakest of the 3,from what i've heard delamore delamorte is soavi's masterpiece and i would imagine the sect is vastly inferior to it.

but still overall i found the sect to be watchable enough but yes disappointing when compared to his other works.

The Handmaid´s Tale (1990)

"In the near future war rages across the fictional Republic of Gilead and pollution has rendered 99% of the female population sterile.
Kate, is captured after seeing her husband killed and daughter kidnapped while the family tried to escape into Canada.
Kate is trained to become a Handmaid, a concubine for one of the privileged but barren couples
who rule the country's religious fundamentalist regime" (Wikipedia)

This is a film adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name.
It was directed by Volker Schlöndorff and stars Natasha Richardson, Faye Dunaway, Robert Duvall,
Aidan Quinn, Elizabeth McGovern, Victoria Tennant and Traci Lind.

Apparently they had some big problems turning the Atwood book into a movie

Future Zone

The sequel to Future Force staring David Carradine as a cop on commission, (they are paid by the job, like a Bounty Hunter), and this time his son comes back thirty years from the future to save him. In that regard the story is very much like Terminator 2.
It's low budget, has hammy acting, a cheesy storyline and ridiculous stunts. And that's not even the best bit. There is a robotic glove David Carradine's character John Tucker puts on that gives him the ability to shoot lasers, and, the glove can fly.

If you like an action/science fiction cheese fest, this might be for you.

Night Eyes (1990)

"A security guard (Night Eyes security) is hired to gather evidence of adultery against
the wife of the rock star and ends up getting involved with her." (IMDb)

This was a decent erotic thriller directed by Jag Mundhra who did lots of similiar stuff
back in the early 90s.
The movie stars the board favorite [Smile] Andrew Stevens (who also co-wrote the film),
Tanya Roberts, Cooper Huckabee, Warwick Sims, Yvette Buchanan and Karen Elise Baldwin.

I liked the atmosphere and the mansion Tanya Roberts lives.
There´s also one ultra steamy Roberts/Stevens love scene and a character called Muffy [Wink]

I would like to get the three sequels someday.

The Double 0 Kid (1992)

Haha, this was a fun and silly family/adventure flick.

"17-year-old Lance Elliot is a summer intern at the Agency.
His fantasies of espionage and intrigue turn real when he's ordered to rush a package to L.A.
A madman millionaire computer virus designer and his icy henchwoman want that package.
It's key to their plot to destroy the environment.
Lance stays one step ahead of them, trying to avoid a visit to their "video-game-of-doom" room. (Wikipedia)

The movie stars Corey Haim, Nicole Eggert, Brigitte Nielsen, Wallace Shawn,
John Rhys-Davies, Basil Hoffman and Karen Black.
Haim and Eggert keep their clothes on this time and Nielsen looks great.

LA street scenes, evil rollerskate gang, fake alligator and a squirtgun flamethrower
plus two cool aor tunes on the soundtrack. Stupid fun.

This was a cool, stylish and sexy low-budget vampire flick.

Yes, the film has it´s problems with the dialogue and it drags a bit but i like the atmosphere and love Spradling.

he assumes the identity of The Jaguar - a vigilante superhero from his son's drawings -

to bring the criminals to final justice. (IMDb)

Ultracheesy but entertaining action flick directed by one of the b-meisters, David DeCoteau.
The cast is ok: Maxwell Caulfield, Trevor Goddard, Linda Blair, Randall Bentley, Stacy Keach, Paul Bartel and Fiona Hutchison.

She tells Christina odd stories, and dazzles her with gifts and her strange picture book.
Kate is having awful visions, her husband is acting weird, and her daughter is slowly drawing away from her.
Her investigation of Anna only leads to a bizzare Satanic plot. Is there anyone she can trust? (IMDb)

d'Abo looks supercute once again and Walker gives a decent performance as the worried mother.

To a certain degree i do agree with Crash on this topic.

Haneke's La Pianiste was an extremely boring depiction of a woman's urges to pursue an S&M relationship.

La Pianiste was produced.

Back in the 80s when I was in school in Philadelphia, I had this weird little over-the-air pay channel called ON TV. They ran every Metzger Audubon film late nights. I got a real education about the classy adult film, something no one does anymore.

Lambada (1990)

"Kevin Laird is a Beverly Hills school teacher by day and a mystery man by night.
Using his lambada dance moves to first earn the kid's respect and acceptance,
Kevin then teaches them academics. But when a jealous student exposes Kevin's double life,
his two worlds collide, threatening his job and reputation." (IMDb)

Lambada is a decent Cannon International dance film directed by Joel Silberg (Breakin' etc.)
The movie stars J. Eddie Peck (Dangerously Close), very pretty Melora Hardin (Iron Eagle),
Adolfo Quinones (Ozone from the Breakin' films) and funny Ricky Paull Goldin.

Obviously this movie didn´t have a very big budget, the "No Man´s Land" dance club is kinda small
but it includes a cool police car hanging from the ceiling!
The choreographies are pretty lame but the soundtrack is alright with some familiar names like
Brenda K. Starr, Tony Terry and Sweet Obsession.

Feel a big 80s hangover and see super silly classroom dance sequence
and Stonewood High vs. Galaxy High Super Quiz!

This is a fun and crazy comedy/road movie written and directed by Tommy Chong.
It was made in 1989 but released in 1990.
The film stars Tommy Chong, Shelby Chong, Rae Dawn Chong, Paris Chong,
C. Thomas Howell, Martin Mull and superfunny Reynaldo Rey.
Lots of familiar people in small roles: Judd Nelson, Cheech Marin, Paul Bartel, Michael Winslow etc.

Nice easy-going feel, cool locations and great soundtrack.

Fever (1991)

This was a made for HBO Pictures film. Armand Assante as the ex-con who wants his chick back (Marcia Gay Harden), who is now shacked up with lawyer Sam Neill. Assante's jail enemies set him up to do jobs for them by kidnapping Marcia. Sam has to tail along and learn how to live on the dark side. Decent action, steamy, drama. Jon Gries and Gregg Henry are noticeable as well.

The Last Hour aka Concrete War (1991)

This was a decent but pretty silly low-budget action film directed by William Sachs (Galaxina, Hot Chili)
While this is basically just a typical early 90s action film,
it also makes fun of the genre which was surprising.
The movie stars Michael Pare, Shannon Tweed, Bobby Di Cicco, Robert Pucci, Danny Trejo
and female bodybuilder Raye Hollitt.

Escape from L.A. (1996)

Ha, i didn´t remember that this was set in 2013 so it was a perfect time to re-watch the movie.
It´s stupid and fun, tongue in cheek, over the top sequel and i love it.

The mid-90s computer sfx looks pretty bad at times but that´s just part of the charm.
The cast is great and the score rocks.

Not a classic like the original but you have to remember that this was the 90s [Cool]

Mark also happens to be a hit man who is haunted by his last victim, a blonde,
who keeps appearing in his bedroom at the worst of times.
His life becomes even more complicated when he becomes caught up in the schemes of two business partners,
one of the partner's spouse and her boyfriend(s)." (IMDb)

This was a good Canadian erotic thriller directed by Gail Harvey.
The movie stars Ben Cross, Shannon Tweed, Adam Baldwin, Dave Thomas, Henry Czerny and Lenore Zann.

This was a decent action thriller directed by Norberto Barba.
The film stars Virginia Madsen, Toru Nakamura, Dean Hallo, Ryo Ishibashi and Harry Dean Stanton.
You can also see Virginia´s brother Michael Madsen in a small role.

Madsen is good and looks great like she always does but somehow the movie never fulfill it´s potential.

This was a cool little thriller directed by George Mihalka (Pinball Summer, My Bloody Valentine).
The movie stars Zach Galligan, Catherine Mary Stewart, Michael Nouri and Albert Schultz.

Galligan was very good, he and CMS had a great chemistry.
The story is typical and the ending seemed a bit rushed but i liked this one.

A Slightly above average coming of age/teen movie from the 90's that I'm pretty sure most here should have seen already. With a good cast of characters and among one of the better 90's soundtracks, This is definitely one that can still give me that warm and fuzzy nostalgic 90's feeling whenever I watch.

PAST MIDNIGHT (1991)

This somewhat erotic mystery thriller starring Rutger Hauer and Natasha Richardson is fun, but not great. Clancy Brown is always good and what happens to him is pretty wild. Quentin Tarantino allegedly re-wrote some of the script and is an associate producer. The setting of Washington state is beautiful and it's always raining. I first saw this on VHS back in 92? I always remembered it and was glad to see it again. 7/10 just for setting, actors, and time period.

they team up long enough for Butler to steal a car with a very special piece of luggage in the trunk,
and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly they're chased by both sides of the law,
and who can tell which is which?" (IMDb)

This was a decent action film written and directed by Alex Wright.
Starring Yancy Butler, Matt McCoy, John Ashton and Trevor Goddard.

Surprisingly violent and good action sequences and Yancy Butler sure is easy on the eyes.
McCoy was a bit too nerdy though and why do i see George "Buck" Flower in every other film i watch [Big Grin]

As punishment, he is thrown into a stockade populated entirely by black inmates.
But instead of giving into racism, Bean joins forces with his fellow inmates
and rises up against the bigoted prison warden, MSgt. Otis McKinney (Martin Sheen)" (Wikipedia)

This was a very good military prison drama directed by Martin Sheen.
The movie is set in 1960s and is based on a novel by Gordon Weaver.
The film stars Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Beach, Harry Stewart,
John Toles-Bey, Blu Mankuma, Ramon Estevez, James Marshall and F. Murray Abraham in an uncredited role.

Okay, Atomik, I might have to break the bad news. I've enjoyed this film for 20 years now and the Copley scenes were cool. I think it's IMDB or MrSk@n who says that it's probably a body double because they do not show the face and body at the same time it seems. I was crushed when I read that. Is Copley on Twitter? I will just ask her.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
Ok, it might be so that she used a body double.
But those were definitely her boobs and she was in Playboy (also in 1990) so why couldn´t she go nude also in a movie?
She´s a born-again Christian now so she most probably denies everything [Smile]

watched richard donner's 1995 action thriller assasins starring sylvester stallone,antoinio banderas and julianne moore.

sly stallone and antonio banderas play rival assasins both given the same job of tracking down and eliminating surveillance expert electra as played by julianne moore.

i've watched this movie a few times over the years,i originally first watched it back when it debuted on home video in the mid 90s and at that time i thought it to be just merely o.k,i then watched it again quite a few years later and came away from it feeling much more impressed with what i had seen and i must say i have enjoyed it ever since.


 -
antonio banderas as miguel bain.

stallone and banderas are both great here in there roles as the rival assasins,banderas here plays his part of the young and cocky hitman miguel bain completely over the top but it does seem to suit the movie well when playing against stallone's more calm and compassionate seasoned pro.

the action scenes are very well handled by director richard donner and the movie certainy does seem to move at a good pace especially the first half hour or so.


 -
julianne moore(electra) and sylvester stallone (robert rath).

assasins is a movie which if i remember right was fairly slated by most film critics and fans upon it's release and in my oppinion unjustly so and one that i believe many will go back to at some point to reevaluate and chances are like myself will probably come away with much more positive feelings about it.

a great 90s action thriller.

I've always enjoyed fixing the shadow atomik I remember renting it when it first came out on home video,i think it's a really good movie,sheen and Madsen are both really convincing in it and the fact it's based on true events makes it even more compelling to watch.

I have a region 1 DVD of it under the beyond the law title,it's a budget 4 movie pk along with Michael Keaton's quicksand which also stars Michael Caine,fall time starring mickey Rourke and the Steven seagal thriller ticker.

Sheen starred in some really entertaining flicks throughout most of the 90s,I really enjoyed stockade,the chase,terminal velocity and men at work amongst others.

Fixing the shadow aka beyond the law like atomik said is a great movie and if you get a kick out of based on true event action thrillers you'll most definitely enjoy it.

watched the crime drama bullet (1996) starring mickey rourke,tupac shakur,adrien brody and ted levine.

i had watched this before when it was first released but could only vaguely remember bits of it,one scene being a pretty graphic eye stabbing (as pictured on the back cover from above),you don't see much but you can just imagine the pain and it sure does make you grimace,the other scene i seemed to remember well from when i originally watched it was the steamy night club sex scene towards the end of the movie [Big Grin]


 -
mickey rourke as butch 'bullet' stein.

i thought this was pretty decent,it's got a quite a gripping storyline and great performaces from most the cast,especially rourke,i thought he was really good here as the recently released convict butch 'bullet' stein.


 -
away with the fairies - ted levine as vietnam veteran louis stein.

ted levine also is a lot of fun to watch as rourke's whacked out vietnam vet brother,he's a good actor who really knows how to play it up,to say his character here has lost the plot is a total understatement.

adrien brody is fine as rourke's artistic younger brother who doesn't seem to fit in with such violent surroundings,tupac as the one eyed villain tank who is out for revenge on rourke's character butch is also decent in what is a fairly brief role.

 -
you've got to hand it to him for a pretty good performance it's adrien brody as ruby stein.


bullet is quite a violent and bleak thriller but it does make for a good watch.

highly recomended 8/10.

Never seen Bullet, thanks for the comments warrior. I might just get the dvd.

I´ve also been thinking should i get Love at Large on dvd.
The cast sure sounds awesome.

i've never seen love at large,tom berenger is great,i got rustler's rhapsody on my shelf,i've had it for ages but have never got round to seeing it,got to make sure i check that out at some point.

would like to see love at large even though it's had a few lukewarm reviews including johnny's,one i would like to check out again at some point but seems quite tricky to get hold of in the u.k (well at least for rental) is the 90s thriller shattered that berenger starred in.

i think i remember that being pretty good.

I own Rustlers' Rhapsody on VHS and Shattered on dvd.
RR is a fun western spoof with a nice cast, Shattered is a great thriller.

Pure Luck (1991)

This was a decent comedy directed by Nadia Tass (Malcolm, The Big Steal).
The film is set in Mexico and is a remake of the popular French comedy film La Chèvre (1981)
and stars Martin Short, Danny Glover, Sheila Kelley, Sam Wanamaker, Scott Wilson and Harry Shearer.

A nice feelgood comedy but not the kind which makes me laugh out loud.
I thought that the theme tune Danny Elfman had composed sounded a lot like his Simpsons one.

Watched Raw Nerve (1991) and what a lousy and silly thriller it was. The director just can´t create tension at all.

"Jimmy Clayton (Prior) is a race car driver who has visions of the murders that have been happening locally. The police do not believe him and he is not aware of what is happening to him.
When he has a vision of his sister Gina (Lords) being murdered, he needs to make an investigation of his own.
With the help of local reporter Gloria Freedman (Bergman), Jimmy tries to determine who the murderer is and analyse his visions." (IMDb)

The plot is a mess and most of the cast is horrible. Glenn Ford looks like a totem pole in his last feature film and Jan-Michael Vincent looks pretty much the same. He had a serious alcohol problem in real life and it shows.
Ted Prior (director David A. Prior´s brother) looks a bit like Christian Bale but can´t act at all. Traci Lords looks good (and that´s enough for me) and i´ve always liked Sandahl Bergman. She´s in top form and has fantastic outfits.
Of course there´s the obligatory twist in the end before the suffering stops. Recommended only for true Bergman/Lords aficionados.

"A sketch artist for the police helps a witness recall who she saw leaving the scene of a murder, and discovers that the person is his wife.
Not willing to believe she was responsible, he resketches the pictures so they don't look like her, and he begins his own investigation of the murder." (IMDb)

Watched Sketch Artist (1992) and it was a decent early 90s thriller made for late night television.
The cast is pretty good: Jeff Fahey, Sean Young, Drew Barrymore, Frank McRae, Tchéky Karyo and James Tolkan.
Fahey was born to do these kind of roles. He smokes all the time in this film, you just notice these things nowadays.
The story is interesting, especially the first half but the ending is a major letdown. They made a sequel too in 1995 which stars Fahey and Courteney Cox.
You can also see a little bit skin in the flick, especially british born Charlotte Lewis looks fabulous.

Sketch Artist sounds good. I'd never heard of it. I remember Body Parts with Fahey as the star. I don't know if it ever got released to the theaters, as it coincided with the Jeffrey Dahmer murders. I saw it on VHS back in the 90's. Fahey was hot then, but he looks incredibly old now. Probably from all of that smoking, I think he also had a tv series in the 90's which was produced by his friend Don Johnson.

I watched two 90s movies (both rentals) over the weekend that i had never seen before,first i Watched Jonathan Lynn's really fun 1994 comedy - greedy featuring an all star cast including kirk Douglas and Michael j fox.

I really did enjoy this one,it's got some very funny moments throughout,if you've not already checked this one out and you do fancy a good laugh I'd highly recommend it.

Very enjoyable! 8/10.

https://youtu.be/4Z_N1CRNjrw - greedy trailer (1994).


Also I watched

 -


- For the moment a very well made and entertaining war time romance set in rural Canada,a place called Manitoba (the scenery looks beautiful) with Russell crowe as an airpilot based at a nearby bomber pilot trainee school getting ready to fight overseas during world war 2.

He falls in love with a local farm girl called lill terrifically played by Christiane hirt (the accused) who happens to be married with a husband also fighting overseas.

Really great little movie this from 1993 that I also highly recommend.

Good stuff! I'd rate this also about an 8/10.

Watched All I Wanna Do (1998) aka Strike! (Canada) aka The Hairy Bird (Australia). Not a classic by any means but it was ok late 90s teen flick.
The film was written and directed by Sarah Kernochan, one of the writers of 9 1/2 Weeks and is based loosely on Kernochan's experiences at Rosemary Hall back in the early 60s.
None of the girls really shine in this one but they do a decent job.

Cape Fear 1991. This ranks up there as one of the best remakes in my opinion. Bobby De Niro was scarily good as the revenge seeking Max Cady.

The scene between him and Juliette Lewis in the drama room was a fantastic scene. They are both really talented and they had great chemistry.

I really like how they got the original actors in the movie such as Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum. Robert Mitchum as the original Max Cady can't be beat though I think. He played that role flawlessly. De Niro certainly gave a great take on the character and is good to see him in a role where he is not playing a wiseguy.

That's my post done, I think I might go and bite somebody's face off [Big Grin]

I think Cape Fear is one of Scorsese's most underrated films. Yep, the original is pretty excellent, but the remake is quite good too, made so by Robert DeNiro's bravura performance as a redneck psychopath and Scorsese's sharp direction.

"A beauty contest turns into a hostage situation, when the Miss Galaxy competition is taken over by a gang, demanding a ransom of diamonds.

This was pretty good direct to video actioner with an interesting cast.
Shannon Tweed, Andrew Dice Clay, Robert Davi, Roddy Piper, Nicholas Campbell, John Colicos and James Purcell star.

Playboy goddess Tweed is the action star (believe it or not) in this Die Hard rip-off.
Dice Clay and Piper are the bad guys and you can see that they enjoy every minute.
I liked this very violent and entertaining b-action film. I also have the sequel and will check it out one of these days.

A good friend of mine in Toronto worked on No Contest as a storyboard artist/graphic designer.

Doctor Mordrid (1992) is one of the best Full Moon Entertainment films i´ve ever seen.
It´s basically a Dr. Strange (the Marvel Comics character) film but Charles Band lost the rights to the name just before the production started so they had to change the name of the film.

Anyway, this was highly entertaining 70 minutes, Jeffrey Combs is great like he always is and Brian Thompson plays his arch nemesis Kabal.
The special effects look fantastic for a low-budget feature and you also get to see some stop motion stuff.
Recommended!

I'm going to have to check Dr mordrid out atomik,it sounds good to me,when I watched the trailer I thought for a full moon production the effects and everything else seemed a cut above there norm!


I've not long ordered a blu Ray (from UK distributor 88 films) of one of there earlier productions actually and that is Stuart Gordon's the pit and the pendulum with Lance henriksen,just waiting for it to arrive.

There early 90s stuff was all pretty solid - puppet master,shadowzone,castle freak,the pit and the pendulum were all good fun.


Want to check out Dr mordrid,phantoms with Sherilyn fenn and netherworld from 1992.

The original script is from John Sayles and it doesn´t follow your basic action film formula.
It´s very calm in places although i have to say that the final 30 mins or so is breathtaking stuff.
This is surprisingly good mid 90s flick which i highly recommend.

This 1996 action thriller - sabotage which I watched the other day was actually a pretty enjoyable flick despite featuring an overly complex plot and also very little hand to hand combat with actor and martial artist - mark dacascos which is a pity as the one fight scene he does appear in was really great stuff!

Good cast with Tony todd (candyman) who always makes for a pretty cool villain and Carrie Anne moss as an investigating f.b.I agent with some decent action scenes throughout which feature a serious amount of gunplay.

Tony Todd's villain actually uses a high powered rifle and we get a few bullet pov shots in the style of the excellent 1993 tom berenger flick - sniper though these scenes are obviously done on a much smaller budget and look more comical than anything else,though there still great fun to have in there .

This is actually a pretty entertaining 1 hour 30 minutes or so and the budget blu ray release from 101 films has an OK transfer with a few scenes looking pretty darn good,sound was above average as well with volume levels between dialogue and action scenes being spot on.

I'd like to see 101 films release - angel town https://youtu.be/zW4l7P2aVfU starring Olivier gruner,that would be awesome!

Fatal Instinct (1993) bombed at the US Box Office but i found it actually pretty entertaining film directed by Carl Reiner.
At first, i though that Armand Assante was wrong choice to play the lead character but in the end, he wasn´t that bad.

Watched the awesome 1990 futuristic action thriller - split second starring the great Rutger hauer and the lovely kim cattrall for the very first time the other night - I seriously enjoyed this one,it's tense,fast paced,funny(the banter between hauer and his partner) and has loads of atmosphere,in short it's 90 minutes of pure fun!

Watched this on the UK 101 films blu ray release (rental) which transfer wise seemed a bit all over the place with the picture being sharp one moment and then soft the next but overall i'd say it was none too bad!

Will definitely be looking at picking this up for purchase at some point,a great flick 8/10.

I've got pentathlon on an anchorbay UK blu ray atomik,it's a fun movie and like you say David soul couldn't have acted any more over the top if he tried,his performance was hilarious!

The blu ray for it is not to bad,the picture and sound are both adequate and best of all it was cheap,I picked it up for just under 4 UK pounds.

Not one of Dolph's very best but still well worth checking out!

Fast paced and fun 1991 thriller starring denzel Washington,John lithgow and ice t which is directed by Russell mulcahy of highlander fame this high octane thriller hardly lets up!

The fact it's got so much going on in it's 102 minute running time (it's crammed full of violence,action,nudity etc) steers you away from concentrating on how daft the actual plot is.

Great fun! 8/10.

Ricochet is fantastic, co-written by legendary Fred Dekker!

Watched The Bounty Hunter (1990) which was directed by Robert Ginty.
Of course the 80s legend also stars in this one with another cool fella Bo Hopkins as the evil sheriff.
It was a decent action thriller with a strong message, some action and cool dialog. Nothing special really but check it out if you like the two guys mentioned.

Blood Games (1990)

When an all-female team beats a bunch of rednecks at the ballgame, the movie shifts gears
to become a survival thriller, not unlike The Zero Boys a couple of years prior to this one.

B-movie legends Ross Hagen and George Buck Flower show up, but for most of the girls Blood Games was
their only movie credit, except for Laura Albert who may not be well-known as an actress, but appears to be
a very busy Hollywood stunt-woman whose credits include many big-budget blockbusters.

In the end credits it's said that Blood Games was produced in '89, but the Imdb lists this as a 1990 release.

Check out the trailer : www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQECajKouqE

Pure exploitation at its finest, 80's style ! [Cool]

Watched Raw Justice (1994) aka Good Cop Bad Cop.

This was fairly entertaining b-actioner directed by David A. Prior.
Lots of familiar names among the cast: David Keith, Robert Hays, Pamela Anderson, Leo Rossi, Charles Napier and Stacy Keach.
Keith plays ex-cop who is a bounty Hunter. He gives a fine tough guy performance and takes Pam roughly in a warehouse.
Pam didn´t like how the scene went and has said that it was a nightmare. She goes to bed with Hays too and he´s much sweeter guy [Wink]
The film is filled with chase scenes, nudity, silly characters and stupid but fun one-liners. Good stuff!

I think that this was a surprisingly decent actioner set in 2017 and based on Dark Horse comic book.
I love Pam and she did pretty fine here, gotta love the outfits [Smile] Xander Berkeley, Udo Kier and Steve Railsback co-star.
The movie flopped badly and they canceled the comic book soon after until last summer it returned so how about a sequel... anyone... [Cool]

A young man,Patrick Channing,born out of an incestuous relationship, and enduring an emotionally ,psychologically scarring childhood, gives in to the dark side of Satanic forces and becomes a weapon of evil. He kills with such ferocity that he becomes the main target of the L.A.P.D. Detective Russell Logan(a specialist in catching serial killers) engages in a battle of wits with Channing in life and after death. It appears that Channing can't be stopped,but Logan has a few tricks of his own to match Channing's-"First Power". - Taken from imdb


Awesome 1990 action thriller starring lou diamond philips as L.A detective - Russell Logan who is on the trail of the creepy 'pentangle' serial killer - patrick channing who is menacingly played here by Jeff kober (above poster - right hand side) who when finally captured is sentenced to die in the gas chamber but after his execution is carried out he (channing) then returns from beyond the grave as an evil demonic spirit to continue his never ending killing spree and also to seek revenge on the detective (logan) who finally brought him to justice!


Moves at a lightning pace this one with many a great set piece involving some really crazy stunt work,few plot similarities here to the previous years wes craven horror flick - shocker but the lack plot originality aside this is a really entertaining thriller!

Looks superb on blu ray as well where to the point that in one scene you can easily spot a wire attached to one of the stunt men when he's falling from a high rise apartment.

Highly recomended 8/10.

"Tara McCormick is sent to prison for the attempted murder of a local drug lord named Tommy Stompanato.

This was quite average b-actioner from Fred Olen Ray (Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers etc.).
Wendy Schumacher (now Alexander Keith) gives a nice tough girl performance but the action scenes are clumsy.
Look out for sexy Nikki Fritz in a small role as house nurse but i was extremely disappointed that Shauna O´Brien decided to keep her clothes on in this one [Wink]

Watched Naked Souls (1996) starring Brian Krause, Pamela Anderson, David Warner, Clayton Rohner and Dean Stockwell.

Pamela is still a goddess but overall this movie was a mess.
We have body swap themes, shaman powder, some technical mumbojumbo, forced love triangle and lots of nudity.
Could have worked in the 80s but in the mid 90s it feels artsy fartsy waste of time.

Watched Final Round (1994) the other day.

"After a recruiter sees him winning a bar fight, Tyler Verdiccio is kidnapped and thrown into an abandoned industrial complex
which has been converted into the arena. Along with his lover, Jordan, and another kidnapped man,
Verdiccio is hunted by mercenaries in a televised death duel which is the main event for a multi-million dollar gambling racket." (IMDb)

A decent Lorenzo Lamas vehicle but not among his best films.
Also starring his then wife Kathleen Kinmont who shows some skin, Anthony De Longis and Clark Johnson.
Few nice fight scenes and one-liners but it feels like a second rate Running Man and the wandering around the warehouse gets old pretty fast.

Watched The Hunted (1995)

"Paul is on one of his many business trips to Tokyo, as a computer-chip executive from New York, when he meets a beautiful and mysterious woman.
Later, he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, inadvertently interrupting an assassination by a feared Ninja-cult.
As he is now the only man to have seen the face of the cult's warrior-leader and lived, he soon realizes that he is facing a markedly foreshortened life-expectancy.
Teaming up with a friendly samurai couple, on a two-centuries-old blood-feud with the Ninja, he struggles to survive." (IMDb)

The film stars Christopher Lambert, John Lone, Yoshio Harada and Joan Chen.
It starts very slowly but i have to say that this was pretty good stuff. Lambert does very little here, it´s Lone and Harada who shine.
Check out the awesome fight in a moving train after some 50 mins with lots of blood and casualties.

Night of the Living Dead (1990)

Highlight for me was her running towards a huge stack of hay shouting "Hey, is anybody here?" Yes, small things [Razz]

I'm not saying this was a dreadful remake by any means, but I was just totally unmoved. When I'm watching a film and my mind starts wandering to what washing needs doing and that I need to get some gravy before the shops shut early tomorrow, well, then it isn't great.

The last 10 minutes was the stuff of nightmares, not in the way I relish.

Plot summary - The shy teenager Tom McHugh worships his sexy neighbor Geena Matthews that lives on the other side of the street, but he does not dare to talk to her. When his parents travel with their dog for a competition and his self-confident big brother Craig McHugh unexpectedly arrives from California for a visit with a classic 1959 Cadillac, Graig decides to call Geena and schedule a date with Tom. He lends his clothes and his credit card to Tom, who cuts his hair like Craig, buy flowers while Tom calls a limousine service. However, the driver has an accident and Tom decides "to borrow" the fancy car to impress the girl. When Tom is mistakenly taken as being Craig and finds a body in the trunk, his dream-night with Geena becomes a nightmare. - from IMDb.

- Great fun romantic comedy starring Ethan Hawke and Terri Polo which has a very noticeable 80s feel about it and if you weren't to happen to know in which year that it was made (1991) then you could easily be mistaken for thinking that it was perhaps shot sometime in the mid to late 80s.

Besides Ethan hawke and Teri Polo also of note in the cast is the hilarious - Fisher Stevens as a completely insane flower delivery guy,Brian McNamara (short circuit) as Ethan Hawke's slimy older brother and - big trouble in little China's - Victor Wong and James Hong in small cameo's as a janitor and a fortune teller.

Features a Cool soundtrack with no less than 3 INXS songs from there 1990 album - 'X' - (suicide blonde,dissapear,on my way) plus tracks by Seal,Sonic Youth,Wilson Picket and Tone Loc so it's got some really great songs to tap along to!


 -


The movie is funny but I wouldn't say constantly so but when the laughs do come there's the odd real laugh out loud moment (the scene where Ethan Hawke fights the samurai guy had me in stitches) and though it does go a bit overboard with the slapstick at times most noticeably in the scene when - Fisher Stevens falls off the bridge i would say that overall I thought the movie to be great fun and also that it had a real good - feel good vibe about it and if you're in the mood for something a bit lightweight and silly then you could do a lot worse than checking this one out!

8/10.

Watched Boulevard (1994).

"A young woman named Jennefer regularly beaten and tortured by her boyfriend, gives birth and immediately gives the child up for adoption.
This sets her on an escape from the lover on the streets of Toronto. Here she meets a hardened hooker named Ola who takes her in so she won't be arrested for vagrancy.
Jennefer then decides to take up hooking to make money and has to learn to fend for herself and to protect herself from a demanding pimp named Hassan.
When Hassan kills one of the street girls, it pits him against the others and against a detective out to bust him.
Meanwhile, Jennefer's boyfriend, J-Rod, arrives in the city and relentlessly seeks her out to take her back... or kill her." (IMDb)

No happy hookers here because this is a very sad film. It certainly doesn´t help that the film is set in winter time and you can always hear this downbeat melody.
There´s lots of nudity and sleaze and i was so surprised to find out that both the writer and the director are women.

The cast is interesting: super hottie Kari Wuhrer plays Jennefer, Rae Dawn Chong is the streetgirl Ola, Lou Diamond Philips plays Hassan the pimp and Lance Henriksen is vice cop McClaren.
As i said, there´s lots of skin and even a lesbian scene between Wuhrer and Chong. Check it out if you enjoy the wrong side of the street.

Rewatched Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) and i just love this film!
Director Tom Shadyac was wise enough and gave Jim Carrey free hands to basically do whatever he liked.
Sean Young is good as Lt. Einhorn and Udo Kier always delivers.
Super fun stuff plus nice score which borrows heavily from both Oh Yeah and Peter Gunn.

Watched Circle of Friends (1995) yesterday.

"'Circle Of Friends' is set in 1950's Ireland. The movie focuses on Benny Hogan and her best friend, Eve Malone.
The story centers around Benny and Eve as they enter student life at University College, Dublin. Here Benny and Eve reunite with their childhood friend, the ice-cool Nan Mahon, the 'college belle'.
They also encounter the handsome and charming Jack Foley, whom Benny quickly falls for." (IMDb)

This was a very good romantic drama, loved the beautiful irish landscapes and the great cast/ characters.
Minnie Driver is perhaps even prettier than in Grosse Pointe Blank, if that´s possible. Gotta love her.
Geraldine O´Rawe, Saffron Burrows, Chris O´Donnell also star and Alan Cumming was funny as sleazy Sean Walsh.

Life and relationships stirred by men, parents, religion and growing up. Excellent film!

This 8pk crimes of passion DVD has been a really great buy,it was under 4 UK pounds and even though it has 4 films crammed on each disc and it's from the budget label mill creek each movie has an anamorphic wide-screen release in its correct aspect ratio and with no compression problems whatsoever despite the 4 movies being on each disc.

So far I have watched

Deceived with Goldie Hawn and John Heard,that was pretty decent,good acting from both leads plus some tense moments with a cool twist at the end!

Next I watched Bad Company with Laurence Fishburne and Ellen Barkin,that while nothing overly amazing was still pretty watchable,good cast as well.

Overall It was Not bad at all!

Then I followed that up With The Tie That Binds which stars Daryl Hannah and Keith Carradine,this one was seriously daft in parts but was also very watchable and Hannah and Carradine made for a crazy pair of psycho's!

This has the weakest picture quality so far but it was still perfectly watchable.

And lastly I watched The Rich Man's Wife starring Halle Berry,Clive Owen,Peter Greene and Christopher McDonald,this to was pretty daft but a lot of fun and quite a gripping watch helped no end by a really solid cast!

So four movies in,all pretty good fun,great picture quality though The Tie That Binds looked only so-so but for i think It was just £3 pounds 80 pence or something like that i do think that this makes for a really great value DVD pack!

Watched the 1993 action thriller Nowhere To Run starring Jean Claude Van Damme,Rosanna Arquette, Ted Levine,Joss Ackland and Kieran Culkin.

Always enjoyed this one,I like the simple but entertaining plot of Van Damme being on the run when he comes across a widow and her two kids who desperately need his protection from a ruthless property developer who is doing his up most to drive them of there land,there's some good action scenes here most notably a really well shot motorbike chase involving pursuing bikes,cars and police on horseback!

This is pretty entertaining stuff actually with Van Damme in rather good form and a very hot looking Rosanna Arquette and then when you add on the great acting talents of both Joss Ackland and Ted Levine as the dastardly villains of the piece and some truly stunning location shooting in and around California State
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107711/locations
And you've got yourself a bit of a winner! 8/10.

Seen this numerous times before but this was the first time of watching it on Blu Ray and I must say I was very impressed as there's a real noticeable improvement in both picture and sound!

"In the midst of WWII, a group of half-witted soldiers led by a slightly smarter sergeant, battle the Germans and especially Von Kraut in the desert." (IMDb)

Watched this ZAZ / Hot Shots style Cannon flick A Man Called Sarge (1990) yesterday.
Written and directed by Stuart Gillard (he also did the Cates fantasy Paradise) and stars Gary Kroeger who was in SNL back in the early 80s.
Marc Singer, Gretchen German and Jennifer Runyon also star. Gotta love Singer and his german accent [Smile]
It´s a decent flick but nowhere near the other spoofs of the era. The jokes just aren´t that funny.
They used movie trailer voice Don LaFontaine (Terminator 2 etc.) as the narrator and beside Singer, this guy has the funniest lines in the film.

"In order to get her husband back, an architect's psycho ex-wife kills everybody she can get her hands on." (IMDb)

This was a fun thriller directed by Mark L. Lester who did lots of good stuff back in the day.
Of course the characters sometimes act and behave like idiots but that´s part of the charm.
Yancy Butler gives a very good performance as the wicked wacko ex and looks pretty good too.
Nothing unusual here but it kept me entertained.

Watched White Hunter Black Heart (1990)

"A thinly fictionalized account of a legendary movie director, whose desire to hunt down an animal turns into a grim situation with his movie crew in Africa." (IMDb)

This movie didn´t do much for me.
The director in question is John Huston and i can see why Clint decided to make this film. He is so much like Huston himself.

I was shocked to see Eastwood with so much dialog because earlier in his career he always thought the less the better.
Usually when Clint talks you better listen but this time also his accent started to annoy me.
The film has it´s moments (Clint tells the truth about Hollywood etc.) but i can totally understand why this movie is somewhat forgotten.

Haha, yes, I did laugh at the part when they were playing pranks on the other two garbage men. Haha!

Watched the sports drama Across The Tracks from 1990 which features a pretty decent cast,you've got a young Brad Pitt,Ricky Schroder who whenever I see I instantly think of 1979s The Champ (great film) in which he played the young lad T.J and rounding it off you have the late Carrie Snodgress who I have always thought of as being a really great actress.

What it is about is Schroder's character returns from a spell in reform school after being caught joyriding with his buddy,on his return he goes to stay with his mother (Carrie Snodgress) and his brother (Brad Pitt) in there trailer park home, his mother welcomes him back with open arms but his brother (Pitt) is a bit more apprehensive about his return and for a long stretch of the movie they do not see eye to eye but then like all good brothers they finally patch things up.

Anyhow just as things start to go well for the two bro's Schroder decides to join the local track team,his brother (Pitt) already happens to be the local track team champion and this then Pitts [Big Grin] the two brothers and runner's against each other and that is when the sparks between the two really start to fly!

Good stuff this and i must say I do like these sports themed family drama's such as Split Decisions,Sreets Of Gold and now Across The Tracks, i think that they can make for quite the crowd pleaser at times!

Also watched Mobsters a gangster flick with a bit of a Young Guns feel to it where Charlie 'Lucky' Luciano (Christian Slater),Meyer Lansky (Patrick Dempsey),Frank Costello (Costas Mandylor) and Bugsy Siegel (Richard Grieco) take on Don Faranzo (Michael Gambon) and Don Masseria as played by the late great Anthony Quinn in an all out mob war during 1920s New York.

A pretty cool gangster flick this with a terrific all star cast,looks and sounds great on Blu Ray as well and if you look around it can be had a budget price,i only paid just over 4 Uk pounds (included delivery) for mine.


This new Blu Ray is the US cut of the film which runs about 16 minutes shorter than the international version,i do always tend to prefer the longer versions but here I think it makes for a lot snappier movie,another thing though it might be my imagination is I can't remember it being quite this violent,it's been a few years since I last watched it but it seemed a lot more bloody this time round so I don't know whether this cut of the movie has a few scenes that actually differ altogether from the longer international version!

Watched The Rookie (1990).

This was much better than i remembered, highly entertaining stuff.
The film was written by Boaz Yakin (The Punisher) and Scott Spiegel (Evil Dead II).
Clint Eastwood clearly passes the action star torch to younger generation here and in this case, Charlie Sheen.

Huge stunts, lots of great scenes, fun one-liners, cool cast and nice vehicles.
Basically this is pure 80s action mayhem and highly recommended to all 80s action freaks!

Clint´s on-going joke: Got a light?

Mobsters is worth checking out Atomik I reckon you'd probably like it,i've always enjoyed The Rookie as well though do not own it,i was going to pick it up way back on Blu Ray but held back to see if it dropped in price but then totally forgot about it!

I will get it one day,i noticed while looking through some of Clint's available Blu Rays that the 2002 thriller Blood Works is really cheap on Blu,i have watched it but can't remember what it was like.

Have you seen it and if so is it any good ?

"A gubernatorial candidate hires a wormy special assistant whose only job is to make sure the candidate's well-meaning but incompetent brother doesn't ruin the election." (IMDb)

Black Sheep (1996) was a surprisingly bad and unfunny comedy.
It seems that Paramount tried to cash in after the success of Tommy Boy with a rushed product.

The films includes few fun moments from Chris Farley but the dialog and most scenes are just embarrassing.
David Spade sleepwalks here and had problems with director Penelope Spheeris. All this and a crap grunge soundtrack. Avoid!

A career thief witnesses a horrific crime involving the U.S. President. - From IMDB.

Somewhat daft but still entertaining Eastwood thriller from 1997 with a very solid supporting cast including Gene Hackman,Scott Glenn and Ed Harris.

Pretty tense opening gives way to mostly mild thrills but it moves at a pretty decent pace and even though it clocks in at around 2 hours it never bores and Eastwood gives quite a likeable performance as a veteran thief who seriously picks the wrong property to rob!

Like a lot of Warner's Blu Rays that I've watched of late this looks very decent in high def and I believe retails at a none too bad price!

Definitely worth checking out!

A Perfect Murder (1998)

Slick Hollywood remake of Hitchcock's Dial M For Murder starring Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow and Viggo Mortensen.

It's always fun to see Douglas playing the bad guy.. but besides that, the movie is fairly forgettable.

Watched The Trigger Effect (1996)

"The film follows the downward spiral of society during a widespread and lengthy power outage in Southern California." (Wiki)

This was a disappointing thriller written and directed by David Koepp based on a Twilight Zone episode.
It has few atmospheric moments but sometimes the characters were so dumb it gave me a headache.
Also, the plot really has no goal.

Elisabeth Shue looks great like she always does. Kyle MacLachlan and Dermot Mulroney also star.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I totally agree with you especially on "the plot really has no goal." It was such a dry, empty, aimless experience, surprising from David Koepp, whose screenplays are pretty lively even when they aren't good. The film almost dares you to try to find something memorable about it. But you can't even with Ms. Shue and the good cast.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
I agree that Koepp has done some very good screenplays but it seems that he can also fail. Well, don´t we all.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I haven't seen Mortdecai with Johnny Depp, but I understand that that was another one of his big fails. I think Carlito's Way is his best work and then Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Bad Influence, Apartment Zero, and Mission: Impossible.

Camp Nowhere (1994).

"Morris "Mud" Himmel has a problem. His parents desperately want to send him away to summer camp. He hates going to summer camp, and would do anything to get out of it.
Talking to his friends, he realises that they are all facing the same sentence: a boring summer camp. Together with his friends, he hatches a plan
to trick all the parents into sending them to a camp of his own design, which would actually be a parent-free paradise. Blackmailing former drama teacher Dennis Van Welker into helping,
they must convince the parents that the camp is genuine, and that they aren't allowed to visit..." (IMDb)

This summer, kids rule. Well, ok. This was a pretty decent kids summer camp film.
It was directed by Jonathan Prince who wrote 18 Again! with Josh Goldstein back in ´88.

The young cast did ok and it was cool to see Christopher Lloyd and Thomas F. Wilson working together again.
We can also see Jessica Alba in her film debut here.
Lots of crazy stuff happening here but since it´s a family flick there´s always a lesson for the youngsters to learn.

Galaxis (1995)

This was fun low budget sci-fi action film directed by William Mesa.
Starring Brigitte Nielsen, Richard Moll, John H. Brennan, Roger Aaron Brown, Cindy Morgan and Sam Raimi in a small role.

Nielsen looks pretty good as the futuristic Red Sonja and Brown plays a detective with few lethal one-liners.
You can tell that the budget was minimal but Mesa sure is one heck of a sfx wizard with over 100 credits as a visual effects supervisor.

Take a little bit of Star Wars and mix it with The Terminator and voila, you have Galaxis [Smile]

Watched the 1990 Nico Mastorakis/Peter Rader directed action thriller Hired To Kill (Blu-Ray rental) starring Brian Thompson as a mercenary who is hired by George Kennedy to free a rebel leader (Jose Ferrer) who is being kept imprisoned in a fortress by a brutal South American dictator as played by the late great and always nutty Oliver Reed.

The plan is for mercenary leader Thompson to disguise himself as a gay fashion photographer and then for him to take seven hardened female criminals/mercenaries along with him for the mission and have them be disguised as his models!

Set in South America but shot on the beautiful looking Greek island of Corfu this is full off your usual Nico Mastorakis wackiness with some bizzare dialogue and many a O.T.T situation but it's a lot of fun and builds to a fab action packed final 20 minutes that features some truly outrageous stuntwork and the fact that a stuntman tragically lost his life while on the set of the film in a helicopter Stunt that went wrong does not surprise me in the least!

Add in the fun performance's from Brian Thompson,Oliver Reed and George Kennedy and you've got yourself a very entertaining 1990's actioner!

Blu Ray looks good and features an interview with the good humoured Brian Thompson who has some hilarious stories of Ollie Reed's on screen antics!

Great fun!

I watched Hired to Kill back in the dark ages (2014) while the site was down.

It´s fun stuff and i especially liked the training targets with Oliver Reed´s face and the kissing scene was definitely also one of the many wtf moments [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

But yeah, the camera moves nicely which is not uncommon when we are talking about a Mastorakis film and the stuntwork rocks !
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :

If so are they any good?

Both Terminal Exposure and Glitch are totally bonkers Mastorakis magic.

Watched TE back in late 00s and while my memory is a bit hazy i remember liking it. Needs a rewatch.

Glitch was another one i watched in 2014.
Two rookie burglars hit movie producer´s mansion and you can expect all kinds of craziness including gay ninja and Love Boat bartender Ted Lange as a contract killer [Big Grin]

At the end of the century, Satan visits New York in search of a bride. It's up to an ex-cop who now runs an elite security outfit to stop him. - from IMDB.

Watched the Arnold Schwarzenegger action fantasy End Of Days which i did get to see in the theatres back upon its original release back in 1999 and though for me it's not quite classic Arnie I'd certainly say it's a lot of fun and features some pretty outrageous action set pieces along with solid performances from both Schwarzenegger and Gabriel Byrne who looks like he's having a hell of a time here playing Satan! - no pun intended [Big Grin]

Well directed by the always reliable Peter Hyams this is an entertaining big budget action Pic that looks and sounds pretty spectacular on Blu-ray,especially the Audio track (DTS 5.1 Master Audio) which i thought was first rate!

Great fun!

A young cop gets thrown in with a special police squad who are acting as assassins against hoods and who don't care who gets in the way. - from IMDb.

As direct to home video low budget 90s police thrillers go Scarred City aka Scar City is in my opinion a cut above,packed full off gun blazing action and nudity and with a solid cast featuing Chazz Palminteri,Stephen Baldwin,Tia Carrere and Renee Estevez this film just flies by jumping from one action packed scenario to the next.

It's not perfect by any means as some of the support acting leaves a lot to be desired but I'd say it's certainly a good one of its type!

Recommended!

Awesome 1991 biker flick starring ex NFL star Brian Bosworth in the lead as an undercover cop Joe Huff who has to infiltrate a group of Hell's Angels known as the Brotherhood which is run by the psychotic Chains (Lance Henriksen) and his violent sidekick Ice as played by William Forsythe.

Moves at a cracking pace this action/thriller with some really impressive stuntwork and action set pieces and despite his acting inexperience lead Brian Bosworth acquits himself extremely well here in what I believe was his very first acting role.

Not only this you've also got the terrific Lance Henriksen and William Forsythe who make for a pair of very mean and menacing adversaries and under the assured direction of Craig R Baxley (Action Jackson) this turns out to be one really fun and entertaining action flick which makes It even more puzzling the fact it bombed so bad at the box office back in the day!

Blu Ray from UK distributor 101 Films looks and sounds top notch and though it comes with reversible sleeve and a small poster which i thought was a nice touch the actual disc itself is about as barebones as you can get with no trailer and not even a chapter selection which I thought was disappointing to say the least!

Still if you see it going cheap enough and are a fan of the movie I say definitely go for the Blu as the transfer is first rate.

Well worth checking out especially for all you action junkies out there and comes highly recommended!

Ten Thngs I Hate About You, starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. This was a mediocre teen movie. I believe it is based on The Taming of the Shrew. I thought it would be a better film than it was. Perfectly captured the late 90's fashions though.

I didn't dislike 10 Things when I first watched it back on it's original release but like Atomik have not seen it since,not sure how I'd feel about it now.

When I thought about 10 Things I straight away thought about other 90s teen comedies like She's All That and Drive Me Crazy with Melissa Joan Hart which I found quite enjoyable and noticed when looking them up that they both came out in 1999 the same year as 10 Things I Hate About You.

I do think I can well remember a spate of high school romantic comedies around that time!

A young Hutterite boy must marry his late brother's wife who comes from outside the community - from IMDB.


This 1994 comedy was no laugh riot especially the first 15 minutes or so but it did soon pick up and I thought that it got progressively funnier as it went along and actually turned into quite a sweet natured and likeable little comedy with some beautiful Montana scenery and a couple of very decent performances from the ever gorgeous Patricia Arquette and a really young looking Joseph Gordon - Levitt.

Directed by the late Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek's Spock) this was rather good fun overall and well worth the cheap purchase price (just under 4 UK pounds) that I picked it up for!

7/10.

I watched parts of Rockula, starring Dean Cameron, Toni Basil and Thomas Dolby on Sunday. I didn't see the last 15 minutes as I was busy cleaning. This movie was filmed in 1988 and just screams "1980's". It was really pretty bad. It was a Cannon film, which did not get released until 2-3 years later, as they had filed for bankruptcy. It was on the Comet channels, which I picked up with a digital antenna at my Dad's house. It is mainly a channel that shows older sci- if movies and tv shows.
BTW this makes me think that we should start a thread of movies released in the early 1990's but look and feel totally 80's! Do we have a thread like that?
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I didn't even know that the Comet channel existed, PGHGirl. I can't keep up with these new networks that populate the digital sub-channels like MyTV, This TV, Antenna TV, and Retro TV.

J.J. is a rookie in the Sheriff's Department and the first black officer at that station. Racial tensions run high in the department as some of J.J.'s fellow officers resent his presence. His only real friend is the other new trooper, the first female officer to work there, who also suffers similar discrimination in the otherwise all-white-male work environment. When J.J. becomes increasingly aware of police corruption during the murder trial of Teddy Woods, who he helped to arrest, he faces difficult decisions and puts himself into great personal danger in the service of justice - from IMDB

Watched the 1994 Cop/Courtroom Drama The Glass Shield which despite a great cast including Michael Ironside,M.Emmet Walsh,Ice Cube,Bernie Casey,Elliot Gould and Lori Petty it still didn't quite do it for me,wasn't help by the fact that it felt Slightly overlong and that the main lead of Michael Boatman (Spin City) didn't quite convince as the young rookie black cop.

It was watchable enough but I'd say certainly nothing memorable and with such a high caliber of cast I was definitely expecting more!

Watched it on Blu Ray rental and the picture and sound quality of this recently released UK Blu from Bfi Video was top notch, extras included an interview with the director and an alternate ending.

Prayer of the Rollerboys (1990)

"Set in an unspecified time in the future, USA has declined and become a country of violence and racial prejudice.
Griffin earns his living delivering pizzas while he tries to take care of his little brother. An old friend of his, Gary Lee, is the leader of a gang with big ambitions, the Rollerboys.
Gary joins them to help the police keep track of the gang." (IMDb)

finally got to watch this Haimster film and i don´t know, it was a decent feature but sooo silly at times.
I liked the setting and it was surprisingly violent with lots of skin.
The industrial flavoured soundtrack was not my cup of tea though.

I can´t help but think that i should´ve seen this back when it was released.
The creative team Rick King/W. Peter Ilif wrote Point Break in 1991 so they definitely did have some talent.

I really enjoy Prayer Of The Rollerboys but it took me a couple of viewings to warm to it,I first watched it back more or less when it hit home video here in the UK (90/91) and even back then it came across as amazingly silly but there's certainly something about it as I have definitely took to it since and have watched it numerous times!

I absolutely adored Patricia Arquette back in the day and have always found the Haimster fun to watch,also the skating was pretty ace and while the soundtrack wasn't amazing I did like the track Blown Away by King Swamp -
http://www.kingswamp.com/faq/video.html

One thing about this movie though is I can never keep a straight face when you see the Rollerboys with there long coats on swinging there arms in tandem and I can imagine when this first viewed in theatres back in the day that there was a serious amount of sniggering going on!

Fun 1992 action drama Starring Carl Weather's as Billy 'Hurricane' Smith a Texas oil field worker who travels to Australia's stunning Gold Coast to look for his sister who has mysteriously disappeared!

While there it comes to light that she was mixed up in a prostitution racket run by a despicable mob boss Charlie Dowd as played by the always great Jurgen Prochnow.

Have always liked Carl Weather's and I thought he was again very decent here and I know that he had Action Jackson a few years prior but I think it's a pity that he didn't do more of these big screen lead action roles as I do think that they suited him down to the ground and looking at his filmography that after Hurricane Smith he seemed to turn his attention mostly to TV work with just the odd big screen cameo here and there in Adam Sandler's comedies such as Happy Gilmore and Little Nicky which I think was a big shame!

Carl Weather's and David Argue during the finale of 1992s Hurricane Smith.


The pretty Cassandra Delaney (who was once married to the late musician John Denver) plays Weather's love interest in what too date was her final film role and also the familiar face of David Argue (BMX Bandits, Razorback) appears here as a character named Shanks.

Moves at a fair old pace and has quite the Action packed finale plus Delaney flashes some skin and the Aussie Gold Coast makes for a great setting!

Overall well worth checking out!

My Life is another interesting film i would like to see but is maybe a bit too depressing.

Watched Hughes films Dutch (1991) and Curly Sue (1991) and found both of them subpar stuff.
Mediocre cast, no chemistry, no feel, bad jokes, stupid behavior etc. etc.

Dutch was directed by Peter Faiman who did Crocodile Dundee back in ´86, then Dutch and then nothing. I wonder how and why John even contacted this guy?
Hughes directed Curly Sue himself but hated the film so maybe his time was just over. Such a shame.

I think i´m going to end my Hughes journey here. I have no interest watching the Disney remakes he wrote during the late 90s-00s.

He´s always going to be one of the true legends but stick with the 80s classics, the 90s was poison for this man.

Atomik have you ever seen the TV series that he done called Fortune Dane and if so was it any good?

Alienator (1990)

Haha, what a crapfest directed by the cheapomeister Fred Olen Ray [Smile]
The film stars Jan-Michael Vincent, John Phillip Law, P.J. Soles, Ross Hagen plus a bunch of nobodys and the acting is so lousy i thought i was gonna die [Big Grin]

The story moves very slowly, someone must´ve told the crew that this movie MUST be at least 90 minutes long.
So much wtf stuff here: P.J. Soles´ outfit - oh my god [Big Grin] , J-M Vincent mumbling his lines and the woman who plays Alienator, Teagan Clive, is one MASSIVE chick.
Well, i wanted to watch crap and that´s just what i got [Smile]

That's not actually fair, because it's a terrific movie and all involved do really well.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a Trump lookalike, though... [Smile]

Codename: Silencer aka Body Count (1995)

"A cold-blooded assassin is out for revenge against an elite corps of Special Crimes Agents headed by Eddie Cook and Vinnie Rizzo.
When Cold blooded hit man Makoto escapes from prison, he and his sexy and lethal partner set out to execute the agents who sent them away.
As the Special Crimes Agents are systematically gunned down, Cook and Rizzo find themselves in a deadly race to find the assassins and stop the bloodbath." (IMDb)

This was mildly entertaining actioner written by David A. Prior.
Robert Davi and surprisingly chubby Steven Bauer are the cops and we can see Jan-Michael Vincent in a supporting role.
Sonny Chiba plays the killer and Brigitte Nielsen, with her huge cleavage, is his partner in crime.

The film is set in New Orleans which is refreshing.
I kinda enjoyed the first 30 mins but got bored pretty fast.

Off and Running (1991)

This was a decent road movie starring Cyndi Lauper, David Keith, Johnny Pinto and David Thornton.

The story doesn´t make much sense but there´s fun characters and nice dialogue which keep things entertaining enough.
I also liked the Miami, Florida locations. Solid time waster.

Face the Music (1993)

"Lisa and Charlie Hunter, a divorced couple and former song writing team, spend a weekend in the French countryside in order to write one last song together.
But Charlie's fiance isn't too happy about the idea..." (IMDb)

This was a cute little romantic comedy but i´m a bit biased because i love the stars [Wink]
You can hear few pretty nice tunes here and i think that Ringwald has a pretty good voice. She has made some records too u know.
While Lysette Anthony has lost some of her charm since the Krull days, i think that Molly is even more beautiful than she was back in the 80s.

Dempsey is still the same hyperactive guy we all know and i really liked Danny Green as Donnie, such a funny easygoing fella.

Nothing groundbreaking here but as i said, it´s a nice little film shot in France, especially for fans of the two lead actors.

Baja aka Hitman (1995)

"Alex and Bebe are camped out in Baja California, Mexico, after their disastrous first attempt at a drug deal.
Impatiently awaiting forged passports, they are unaware that Bebe's father has convinced her estranged husband Michael to find her.
Michael soon arrives in Baja California, where it appears he isn't the only foreigner trying to find Alex and Bebe." (IMDb)

Run of the mill 90s crime flick with a two dollar story and mostly annoying characters.
I recommend this only for diehard Lance Henriksen fans because he always delivers.

Rewatched Bill and Ted´s Bogus Journey (1991) which is highly entertaining film.
It´s just bigger, better and funnier than the original.

Great settings, evil twins, Bill and Ted robots and so much more.
Alex Winter is awesome in this one and once again the soundtrack smokes. Remember the days when hard rock was mainstream?

An almost typical day in the lives of several Los Angeles residents, with their moments and experiences intersecting in many different ways in stories involving love, desperation, obsession. All those men and women are finally put together by the tragic fate of going to a diner that was about to be attacked by a dangerous armed man - from IMDb.


Great little action drama from 1998 which i picked up for less than a price of a chocolate bar (saying that the cover is a little bit tatty and the disc did look like it had been used as a tea coaster) that stars Ernie Hudson,Amanda Plummer,Colm Meaney,Tate Donovan and also features a really good performance from Streets Of Fire's Michael Pare.

This was a very well done indie flick with one of the most downbeat endings i've seen in quite sometime,had a cool music score as well from Midge Ure of Ultravox.

One other thing Ernie Hudson of Ghostbusters fame looked like he'd put on a few stone in weight since i last saw him in something either that or the costume department here had got a wee bit too carried away with giving his character stomach padding?

Doesn't seem to be too many reviews for this one online so going by that I'm taking it that it's a pretty much unheard of movie which is a bit of a shame as it had an excellent cast and made for a really good watch!

A great cast,great locations but way too few laughs in this 1992 crime comedy,well tell a lie I did find the odd moment to be amusing but even then it was more small chuckles perhaps the odd grin than any big belly laughs!

Looked very decent on Blu Ray (Rental) but that's about the most positive thing i can really say about my viewing experience,overall I felt it very disappointing and I see it was directed by Eugene Levy who also makes a small cameo here and to see him and big John Candy in the same picture again made me think back to the likes of Armed & Dangerous and Going Berserk which despite some critics especially the latter I found to be much more preferable comedies to this one!

I'm going to rate it about a 5/10 as I did still manage to watch it right through to the very end and i thought the location shooting (French Riviera,Rome etc.) was also pretty cool!

Watched The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990) and man, it was pretty bad.

It´s not easy to make a black comedy that works and most of the time i didn´t know if a should laugh or cry while watching this.

The acting is amazingly bad and the plot is just laughable. I hated all the characters so this pretty much stinks, even if i quite liked Melanie Griffith´s brand new pair of boobs [Big Grin]

Watched Alec Baldwin/Kim Basinger double treat The Marrying Man (1991) and The Getaway remake (1994).

 -

The Marrying Man was a decent if a bit too silly romantic comedy written by Neil Simon. Not one of Simon´s best works but i don´t know if that´s his fault.
Baldwin and Basinger fell in love while filming this one and IMDb says that they only did what they wanted and nobody could say anything.
The cast is pretty amazing including Robert Loggia, Elisabeth Shue, Armand Assante, Paul Reiser, Fisher Stevens, Peter Dobson and Steve Hytner.

 -

The Getaway is a fun rollercoaster ride directed by Roger Donaldson. Walter Hill updated his own screenplay which was of course based on the Jim Thompson novel.

Action, action and more action is the name of the game and also we get to see few ultra steamy Baldwin/Basinger love scenes.
James Woods, Michael Madsen, Jennifer Tilly, Philip Seymour Hoffman and David Morse co star in this simple but entertaining feature.
Gotta love the Arizona scenery and Mark Isham composed a nice score for the film.

Rewatched two Brian De Palma films Raising Cain (1992) and Carlito´s Way (1993).

Raising Cain is one of my absolute De Palma favorites. Love the plot, Lolita Davidovich is superhot and John Lithgow is fantastic in his various roles. Almost perfect stuff, 9/10

Carlito´s Way is also very good but maybe a bit overlong.
Al Pacino shines, Penelope Ann Miller is pretty and likeable and Sean Penn gives a good performance as Kleinfeld with his fun hairdo and naughty habits.
Love the mid 70s setting and it´s just a cool story. 8/10
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
OK, aTomiK, your assignment is to watch the re-edit of Raising Cain that's up on YouTube that puts the movie back to the way DePalma originally intended before he re-arranged it right before release and tell me which one you think is better.

Extremely daft but entertaining thriller from 1997 Under Pressure Aka Bad Day On The Block has Charlie Sheen as ex hero fireman Lyle Wilder who completely looses the plot after his wife and son leave him and so decides to take all his anger out on the family next door of whom he blames for the break up of his marriage!

Unbeknownst to his neighbours who just think Lyle's (Sheen) a bit unhinged and with a few anger problems is just how psychotic he actually is but as the film progresses they soon get to find out and it sets up for a pretty tense though often daft showdown!

Great cast here with Mare Winningham,David Andrews who you'll probably not recognise by name but no doubt will do by face as he's been in countless things throughout the years and also John Ratzenberger (Cheers) turns up here in an extended cameo as an officer of the law and it's all very well directed under the capable hands of Craig R.Baxley who was behind some fun actioner's from the late 80s early 90s including Action Jackson,Dark Angel with Dolph Lundgren and the fun biker flick Stone Cold featuring Brian Bosworth.

Good fun and with a rather decent performance from Charlie Sheen I picked this one up new for just under 3 UK pounds and consider it money well spent and do recommend checking it out!

Beach Babes 2: Cave Girl Island (1995)

A horrible T&A film (did i just say that?) and a sequel to Beach Babes from Beyond which i haven´t seen.
The babes look fine but the story is non existent so we get to see endless slow motion dance scenes! Avoid!

Automatic (1995)

This was a pretty good low-budget actioner which steals ideas from Robocop, The Terminator and Die Hard.
Olivier Gruner is cool as the android J269 and Daphne Ashbrook plays the female lead.
John Glover, Jeff Kober and Dennis lipscomb also star.

Re-watched two Brian De Palma films:

 -

Mission Impossible (1996)

While not as good as i remembered, this is still a solid, well made thriller based on the classic 60s tv-series.
I´ve only seen the late 80s reboot series which was pretty entertaining stuff.
Never seen any sequels for the film.

 -

Snake Eyes (1998)

Snake Eyes is a cool thriller starring hyperactive Nicolas Cage, Gary Sinise, John Heard (RIP) and Carla Gugino.

The story isn´t that special but i love the camera work and the settings in this one.

7/10 for both films.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I liked DePalma's Mission: Impossible and didn't mind his Snake Eyes. DePalma has some interesting things to say in the documentary DePalma about desperately lobbying to direct a franchise blockbuster and how he had deal with two top dueling screenwriters, David Koepp, his guy, and Robert Towne, hired by the studio. Snake Eyes is a stylish thriller with a good cast--Cage is way over the top--that I thought was only let down by a stupid deus ex machina ending.

Vampires - I'm one of those few that puts this in my top 5 Carpenter films. I remember watching it back at the time and having already seen a million and one vampire films it was the little things that I hadn't seen before that I really appreciated. Like the manner in which the slaying was done in that opening scene and the fact that the vamps didn't even need a place to go in the day, just slept directly under the ground.

I love how it starts off quite jovial with the fun bouncy music and then progresses to more of a solemn tone in the middle where aside from anything else it becomes a really great road film. And then has a great action packed finale. There's James Woods who looks like he's having a ball, Laura Palmer, terrible jokes, the only Baldwin I have a soft spot for, priests killing priests and TERRY SILVER as the first ever vampire beheading and slicing people in half with his bare hands. What's not to love?! [Razz]

Rewatched Mission to Mars (2000)

"When the first manned mission to Mars meets with a catastrophic and mysterious disaster after reporting an unidentified structure,
a rescue mission is launched to investigate the tragedy and bring back any survivors." (IMDb)

Not as bad as the critics say imo but not great either.
A surprising film from De Palma but i believe this was originally Gore Verbinski project.
Maybe a little bit too melodramatic but overall a solid sci-fi feature. Van Halen in a spaceship? Why not [Smile] 6/10
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
On the DePalma documentary, even DePalma himself said that he was in over his head by taking on this project And they ran out of money... It's not his worst film by any stretch and has some good special effects, but it has that "been there, done that" feeling of being a knock-off of 2001 or The Abyss. And what was it with Gary Sinise's mascara?

Decent late 90s low budget action thriller which is quite a family affair what with Charlie Sheen,Martin Sheen and Joe Estevez amongst the cast,not much of a plot here but what it does feature is some at times outrageous stunt work and action set pieces plus it sure does move at a hectic pace throughout!

As Direct To Video late 90s low budget action thrillers go this is pretty great with even the bit parts being mostly filled by accomplished actors & actresses with Courtney Gains (Children Of The Corn) playing one of the hoods and Meredith Salenger from the Journey Of Natty Gann playing Charlie Sheen's put upon wife!

Fast paced & fun action thriller with a cool cast that is certainly worth checking out! 7/10.

Psycho IV: The Beginning - Yay, so glad this one lived up for me. This was always my fave of the sequels growing up and still one of my fave flashback films. Olivia Hussey is great as Mother and I love the tension between Norman and the talk show host. Anthony Perkins is back to brilliance again here after I was left feeling he was just lacking a little something in part 3. Love the ending.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Yeah...If I had to rank them, I'd rank the sequels 2,4, and 3 in that order.
 
Posted by Helen_S (Member # 5804) on :
 
Yep [Big Grin]
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I'd go 2,3 and then 4,I thought his performance in 3 was generally very good but to some I suppose it might have seemed to be that he was slightly lacking in effort but then again he was directing the film (part 3) at the same time as being the main lead and maybe it might have been a case of him perhaps biting off a bit more than he could chew?

Plus part 3 was well known for a lot of studio interference and I can remember reading that a lot of the murders were spiced up at the insistence of Universal pictures which to me was no bad thing as I like a bit of splatter but I did read that it rubbed up Perkins the wrong way!

Overall for me I'd say none of the sequels do a complete disservice to Hitchcock's classic original as they all have there positives!
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
It's surprising in some ways, but the only film that does a disservice to Hitch's brilliant classic is the Gus van Sant remake of Psycho, which I thought was a completely pointless waste of celluloid.

I'm with you. It's the most pointless remake of all time. I remember when it came out, Van Sant was saying to his critics that Psycho was like Hamlet. There was nothing wrong with redoing it. But he missed the point. Hamlet has been performed over the centuries with varying interpretations, such as a woman in the lead when Diana Venora did Shakespeare in the Park or a modern-dress version like the film with Ethan Hawke. To do a shot-by-shot replication, bringing nothing new to the table, is so senseless--and no better than doing a paint-by-numbers version of the Mona Lisa.

Maybe it's as I'm getting old now but this is the first time I haven't had a massive preference for the first part where it is predominantly the kids. I liked both halves equally. I didn't even mind the spider as much which is the bit that has always made me cringe in the past. I enjoyed the drama and friendship aspects of the film more than the horror on this viewing. I kept welling up through the good and the bad. Losers club ftw!

Exit to Eden (1994)

"Elliot is going to the island of Eden to live out his submissive fantasies, but inadvertently photographs diamond smugglers at work.
Smugglers, and detectives, follow him to the island, where they try to retrieve the film.
Elliot begins falling in love with Lisa, the head mistress of the island, and Lisa must evaluate her feelings about Elliot and her own motivations." (IMDb)

Mediocre Garry Marshall film loosely based on Anne Rice novel.
Rosie O`Donnell and Dan Aykroy are cops, Paul Mercurio is the photographer and Dana Delany is the head mistress.

Mostly lame jokes here and the film isn´t really that daring in the end but if you want to see Delany and Stephanie Niznik in a full-frontal nude scene check it out.

Dan Aykroyd is firing on all cylinders, Chevy Chase is cool and funny plus John Candy gives nice backbeat.

I'd never seen this before and found it to be really enjoyable,great cast and I loved Hanks as the often inebriated coach and also female leads Geena Davis,Lori Petty,Rossie O'Donnell and Madonna were all excellent.

Superbly directed by Penny Marshall (Big) who must have had her hands full with such a large female cast as you know what it's like when you get a large group of women together (chaos)
[Big Grin] and here she balances the film perfectly with it one minute tugging at your heart strings and the next minute you'll be laughing out loud with a good bit of humour it's a certainty a crowd pleaser and I only wished I'd seen it when it first came out though never mind better late than never!

8/10.

A League of Their Own really is a feel-good film. Sure, the real Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx didn't look like Tom Hanks, but he was a big-hearted alcoholic. I think Hanks captured his spirit. And while I don't think that they needed the bookending segments, the Madonna song, one of her best, does tug at the heartstrings. Good film!

Haha, this was a stupid but fun low budget action flick starring Finn Carter, Marc Singer, Frank Gorshin, Kathleen Kinmont, Catherine Hickland and Mickey Rooney.

Clumsy martial arts, hilarious shootouts, a training montage, some skin and the final fight is pure wtf material.

Watched Raising Cain re-cut and while it´s an interesting version i still prefer the original theatrical cut.
Maybe because it´s the version i´ve always used to watch and more familiar to me but that´s the way it is.

It was fun and strange to see most Lolita Davidovich scenes during the first 25 minutes or so.

Kathy is married to Peter. Now she can't help but wonder how things could have been if she got together with her old boyfriend, Tom. Being married prevents from doing that so she asks her friend, Emily to go to him and see if she can sleep with him then tell Kathy how it was. When Emily tells Kathy that things were awesome, their friendship suffers, at the same so does Kathy's marriage. Things get even more complicated when Emily learns she's pregnant, and she's not certain if it's Tom's or her boyfriend, Elliot.- from IMDb

1994 romantic comedy from director Donald Petrie (Grumpy Old Men) which features nothing overly exciting happening throughout its 93 minutes running time and on the comedy side of things it was more chuckles than anything but still I found this to be rather enjoyable with a really game cast featuring some future big hitters well one in particular anyway and that is a young Brad Pitt who along with Bill Pullman and to a lesser degree Ken Wahl (because he has less screen time) really help to make this movie work!

Can't take away from the female leads Harley Jane Kozak and Elizabeth McGovern as they were equally great and in a miniscule part I noticed the beautiful Kim Walker (Heather's) who sadly passed away 7 years after this flick was shot at the age of 31 from a brain tumor.

Certainly not great but a fun enough 90 odd minutes or so and would make for ideal Sunday afternoon viewing at the end of a busy week when you don't want something too taxing on the brain to watch!

The Stranger (1995)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111299/

"A female biker rides into a desert town to seek revenge on "Angel" and his ruthless gang of violent bikers."

This was entertaining High Plains Drifter remake directed by Fritz Kiersch. 80s kick boxing star Kathy Long plays the mysterious stranger and kicks some butt.

Cool low-budget 90s actioner.

Undercurrent (1998)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0145551/

"A nightclub manager with financial problems accepts an offer to seduce another man's wife for money, and soon finds himself entwined in a web of double-crossing con artists." (IMDb)

Undercurrent is a solid Lorenzo Lamas vehicle shot in Puerto Rico.
I liked the story and Lamas gives a good performance. All in all, a nice late night thriller.
