Hold onto your skulls, because Predator 2 is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Brash, crude, and confrontational, Predator 2 is nonetheless a film worth revisiting over and over again. While the plot and pacing aren’t as tight as the original film, the movie is carried by the eccentric performances of its cast and the wonderful special effects by Stan Winston and company.

It’s actually pronounced LUM-bear.

Review in a Nutshell:  The Hunted (1995) is a movie with an identity crisis.  Half of the film is a modern samurai vs ninja drama, a nihilistic tale of men with antiquated values carrying out their ancient war in the streets of modern Japan.  The other half is Christopher Lambert being a total goober.

Hold onto your boots, because Cube Zero is definitely not the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Hopelessly crippled by ridiculous writing and bad ideas, Cube Zero takes a decent little science fiction / horror series and piledrives it into the pavement.  Its badness has to be seen to be believed.

Jason Statham Drives a Car and Kills People

This is the only picture that should be required to convince you

that Death Race is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  On one hand, indistinguishable gray vehicles firing machine guns at one another in an ash-colored soup of choppy action scenes.  On the other hand, Mario Kart power-ups and Robin Shou.  On the gripping hand, Jason Statham.

Beware of Dog

This movie contains:

Ground Mics!

Obnoxious House Guests.

Dog on the roof. DOG ON THE ROOF!

Exploding Helicopters.
