  • Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels 1998

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2015

    A Cockney comedy-of-errors Pulp Fiction. Though not as much of a cultural impact, definitely on the level.

  • Flash Point

    Flash Point 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Apr, 2015

    Pretty damn brutal. Storytelling is so-so, but it has a relatively good ensemble of characters. I could really buy Louis Koo's Wilson experiencing the line between his undercover persona and his career being blurred out. This movie also has the most brash and unrestrained character I've ever seen Donnie Yen portray, and I think he pulls it off. The fights are just excellent. Interesting to see Yen fight more of his own mixed style than the Hung Ga or Wing…

    Red State 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2012

    Red State is extremely confrontational and somewhat disquieting. Some will say it changes focus and is unsure what kind of movie it wants to be, but I appreciated the unexpected turns and it kept me on my toes. Michael Parks delivered a minblowing performance, and I can't honestly say any other actors brought it…

  • The Return of the Living Dead

    The Return of the Living Dead 1985

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 May, 2012

    Intense but lighthearted, entertaining, great acting, believable character actions and reactions, great makeup and puppetwork, good stunt work, hot nudity with Linnea Quigley, cute scream queens with Jewel Shepard and Beverly Randolph. Can't believe I didn't watch this before now.
