Little Nikita is an odd little, and mostly forgotten, film from the late 1980s that has a weak screenplay made up by two solid actors in Sidney Poitier and River Phoenix whose chemistry did work so well.
There’s a reason these multi-pack movie collections have a small SRP as they’re geared toward more casual movie fans and I suspect some of these were previously available in some fashion in other collections. If you’re not a videophile and want a wide selection to watch on a Saturday night, these might be worth the price.
I give a brief breakdown on Mill Creek’s June 7th multi-movie pack releases, specifically Streets of Fear and Midnight Movie Madness. None of these movies are of high-quality and are mainly remembered for the stars sometimes in smaller roles. At basement bargain prices, these might be worthy for collector’s of these cheap sets.
Mill Creek’s bargain releases for “Knight Rider” and “Miami Vice” is effectively priced (<$10 per season) especially for those who don’t already own them. Another plus over the Universal releases is these are slimmer packaging so those with limited shelf space will benefit. Sadly, they do not have any features but that’s not too surprising.
My Science Project is somewhat of a gem, forgotten one at that, of the 1980s overshadowed by Back to the Future, Real Genius and Weird Science, the last two interestingly coming out the same year as MSP… Although it’s not as tightly written both in terms of plot and characters, it’s still a fun little flick.
