The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power is what you think it would: really dumb and it doesn’t pretend to be otherwise so on a certain level, for as bad as it might be, it’s a harmlessly bad flick that many can enjoy and at the very least has mock value to hold an “MST3K” movie night. The Blu-ray released by Universal actually has good video and audio transfers and a decent selection of special features.
Take Me Home Tonight is a fun homage to 1980s music/movies and while it’s hardly a great movie, the cast ensemble seems to have good chemistry with one another and the jokes on the whole seem to hit rather than miss. I can’t say this is a must purchase title but it is worth a rental and once it gets to the $10 range, might be worth purchasing.
Jade may be underrated in its vitriol but by the same token it’s still not a very good movie even with some erotic sex scenes meant to titillate and instead are weird (nothing new from Friedkin) bordering on boring. You add in a plot that isn’t very intriguing and a lead actor who is even less so and you’ve got a movie that deserves to be forgotten.
