The Green Inferno certainly has its moments and not entirely unwatchable, but it does have many of the staples of an Eli Roth film, most notable wholly unlikeable characters, though I did enjoy Lorenza Izzo’s performance.
Never Grow Old isn’t an especially memorable Western-drama though Emile Hirsch holds his own in the lead while John Cusack I suppose does his best with a thin role, even so, he does come across as bored versus menacing.
The Haunting of Sharon Tate was just a bad idea from the beginning and even if it didn’t poorly exploit the real life tragedy by interjecting an almost fantasy element, the technical aspects were pretty bad as well.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Turtles is a great mash-up for any fan but as someone who grew up in the late 80s and early 90s, this was a lot of fun even if the Turtles’ designs weren’t my favorite, but was able to ignore as the humor was on point.
The Entity to say the least is a unique and pretty graphic supernatural-thriller that features a brave performance from Barbara Hershey and although it’s far from perfect, definitely worth checking out.
Double Face is normally the kind of movie up my alley. The murder-mystery is a bit uneven with the pacing and editing, but even so, I did like Klaus Kinski’s performance and it did at least keep my attention through the end.
A Vigilante had good intentions but thanks to the slow and awkward delivery of a familiar story, that it was tough to sit through but for the wrong reasons. The only redeeming value I could find was Olivia Wilde’s emotional performance.
Trapped Alive is a middling and ultimately dull horror-fantasy-thriller and it’s really not hard to see why this didn’t really see the light of day over the past 20+ years, still fans of the subterranean monster film might get something out of this.
Double Team is a poorly made, half-baked action-thriller though the biggest sin was how some producer or studio head thought it was a good idea to pair up an action falling star with a rainbow colored ex-NBA player.
My Nights with Susan, Sandra, Olga & Julie is a very interesting 1970s-era erotic-suspense-drama out of the Netherlands and features some decent enough performances, particularly from Willeke van Ammelrooy.
Crypto isn’t a terrible movie but like most films in the Grindstone Entertainment portfolio might have a kernel of an interesting story, just not materialized thanks to the script writing, pedestrian direction and relatively cheap budget.
Satan’s Slave is a pretty laughably bad movie that at times was bewildering at times and features Michael Gough in a villainous role, though the performances from Potter and Glendenning was wildly on one end or the other.
The New Scooby-Doo Movies: The (Almost) Complete Collection is a great set from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, a must for any big Scooby-Doo fans as you get the long-awaited lost episodes… save for one unfortunately.
