  • Death Ring 1992

    ★★½ Watched 18 Aug, 2014

    Death Ring is a fair DTV actioner featuring: MCQUEEN! NORRIS! SWAYZE! DRAGO!

    Yes, Mike Norris (Chuck's son), Chad McQueen (Steve's son) and Don Swayze (Patrick's brother) are all here - though the latter doesn't show up until a full hour into the picture.

    Billy Drago plays a snake-blood drinkin' evil dude who sees Mike Norris win some kind of race, and decides that he needs him as a participant in his deadly man-hunting games.

    Yes, this is a Hard Target…

  • Fletch 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

  • A Talking Cat!?! 2013

    ½ Watched 14 Mar, 2013 13

    A drunk cat keeps messing around with two families in an attempt to ruin their lives. Or something along those lines. Did I mention that Eric Roberts voices the cat? Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
