Vice Squad is a very unique and somewhat underappreciated crime-thriller with some truly uncomfortable scenes but solid acting from Season Hubley and, especially, Wings Hauser who delivers a chillingly masochistic performance.
Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie is more or less the same quality of entertainment as the first movie and the various television series with over-the-top performances and a thin plot, though I guess if you’re a fan, you might find it to be fun.
The Universal Horror Collection: Volume 1 set is a great release from Shout Factory includes four Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi starring films, all of varying quality but any fan of either actor or just the era, will find this collection well worth picking up.
Silent Hill is certainly one of the better video game adaptations, and while that might not say much considering how much crap has been out there, I will say there are some genuinely good things about this one.
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.
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.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers probably was in line with the television series with a bigger budget and I suppose if you’re a fan of that style of adventure and comedy, this might be worth watching, though it is dated.
When a Stranger Calls Back isn’t as good as the original, at least from my memory, but does contain a few genuinely thrilling scenes starting out with the first 20-mintes which was well shot and acted.
Earthquake is certainly one of the lesser of the disaster film of the 1970s and certainly the story and characters, despite a respectable cast, was the weaker point but I was at least impressed with some of the miniature and special effects work.
Admittedly these supernatural-horror movies aren’t generally my thing and Superstition is no different and despite some okay performances and the filmmakers doing the best they can with a thin script, this is not even close to be worthy of a rental.
Someone to Watch Over Me admittedly was a bit of a disappointment as I do love crime-dramas and combined with Ridley Scott at the helm, figured it’d be entertaining, but it’s a movie that features two leads who had zero chemistry with one another.
The Deadly Mantis is a bit of a lame 1950s sci-fi-fantasy film that is more boring though some of the small scale scenes with the mantis wasn’t half bad at least, it was far more interesting watching the “MST3K” episode included than the movie itself…
