    F/X

    ★★★★

    Rollie Tyler really is kind of a low-key psychopath, generally acting like a dick and seriously endangering bystanders during a car chase. And that’s before he just starts murdering people with hammers. He does have an wonderful Aussie accent though. And maybe it’s just me, but that Zombie Flesh Eaters poster in his apartment seemed to suggest that it wasn’t Giannetto De Rossi who was responsible for the make-up effects in that movie, but that it was actually a Rollie Tyler joint.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Bloodmoon

    ★★★★

    As far as movies about Kung Fu serial Killers go, it’s not quite Kung Fu Jungle, but Bloodmoon still works for me. The late, great Darren Shahlavi plays a very camp villain who dresses like a Las Vegas stage magician and quotes Van Morrison before he kills Rob van Dam.
