Review in a Nutshell: From the makers of Ong-Bak and The Protector, what I expected from Chocolate and what the movie delivered were two very different things. The central conceit is that the protagonist is an autistic girl with the ability to mimic any martial arts style she sees, but the film is much more dramatic than I anticipated, treating the challenges faced by family members with special needs with a surprising degree of dignity and respect.

Review in a Nutshell: Frenetic, funny, and action-packed, Versus is a genre-bending action / horror / Yakuza picture with a mystic twist. It’s an independent movie with a small budget and a big heart.

Strap on your motorcycle helmets, because Black Rain is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Ostensibly a police thriller, Black Rain is more of an excuse for Michael Douglas and Ridley Scott to stomp through the Land of the Rising Sun with enormous, hob-nailed boots.  As a cinematic artifact from the Eighties representing American cultural anxiety, it’s hard to beat this surprisingly crazy film.

This movie contains:

Michael Douglass, Puffy Avenger.

Hand Trauma.

Impromptu Karaoke.

“Cyberpunk? NAJICA!?!”

Jack into your virtual reality headset, because Johnny Mnemonic is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Johnny Mnemonic is a poor adaptation with a surprisingly high number of hilarious things going on it.  It’s proof positive that some authors should not be allowed to adapt their own work.

This movie contains:

The Internet!

Udo Kier, being Udo Kier.

“Send you down to Rikerth, wear an orange jumpthuit!”

Dr. Henry Rollins, Cybersurgeon Extraordinaire.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Johnny Mnemonic, the Highlight Reel.
