    Starship Invasions 1977

    ★★ Watched 11 Aug, 2015

    I find it hard to believe that Christopher Lee was so hard on the Hammer Dracula films over the years when he did things like this. Didn't even know it existed until I stumbled onto it on Youtube. Actually quite ambitious for the budget it must have had, and lots of interest going on like the invaders trying to wipe out earthlings with a virus that makes everyone want to commit suicide. Also lots of groovy colors and hot girls in skin tight space suits. A real treat if you are expecting nothing at all.

    Piranha 3DD 2012

    ★★ Watched 16 Jun, 2015

    A thoroughly disappointing followup, one that I was looking forward to, being a fan of the first couple Feast films by director Gulager. Very lacking in the extreme violence of the first movie, but makes up for it slightly with tons of nudity, although you have to like silicone to get much out of that. Worthless characters, but a couple of nice cameos, and terrible pandering to the 3D effects, and horrible CG

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012 2

    What I assumed was going to be a dime a dozen by the numbers slasher flick ended up being quite a surprise. Very competently shot, with likeable characters, great gore, and very very lovely ladies that don't mind getting naked in order to fulfill all the things a slasher flick needs. also near the ends a couple nice homages to Friday The 13th films. Felt like I was watching an 80's era flick, which is exactly what this sub-genre should feel like. It's currently on Netflix streaming in glorious HD in case you don't feel like picking up the bluray.

    Christine 1983

    ★★★½ Rewatched 25 Apr, 2012

    Another great John Carpenter movie that failed in the box office when first released, and today is looked at with oohs and aahs. Maybe not to the extant of The Thing (I still can't believe that was a flop in theaters. It just doesn't seem possible). Amazing practical effects that today would all be done in CGI, a great soundtrack that even adds character to the main "monster", and as always great direction and score by Carpenter. Also, if you are a car enthusiast, plenty of cringeworthy moments of destruction of the 2 dozen Plymouth Fury's used in the production.
