    Machete

    Rodriguez is the reason cinema sucks today. Especially of the micro-budget variety. Stop encouraging inadequate talents with nothing to say with your terrible "films" that have nothing to provide, Robert!
    And take off that stupid hat. We all know you're bald. Get over it.

  • Scalpel

    Scalpel

    Forgotten Entertaining '70s trash the year STAR WARS was released.
    Significant, because Lucas' kiddie space movie ruined any chance of movies like SCALPEL getting a theatrical release today. Shame.

  • Hanzo the Razor: Who's Got the Gold?

    Hanzo the Razor: Who's Got the Gold?

    ★★½

    Intriguing opener. Middle gets caught up in bureaucratic conspiracy but the last 15 or so minutes are fun.
    This is basically the formula for all of them. The first sequel is the most successful of these.

  • Lady Snowblood

    Lady Snowblood

    Straightforward, stylish stuff.
    Really all of what you want with these Japanese genre turns.
    The sequel flails about with something to say about politics but in the end has nothing to say at all.

  • After Hours

    After Hours

    My favorite Cheech and Chong movie.

  • Payday

    Payday

    An accurate depiction of desperate, low-level entertainers. Imagine what the elites get up to?
    Anyway, people remember Rip Torn for his latter day performances as a cantankerous, yell-y senior citizen but what they don't realize is he was once an actor. Up there with the best this country produced.

  • Kill!

    Kill!

    The two C's really bring this Samurai flick down.
    Comedic and convoluted.

  • Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades

    Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades

    you've seen one, you've seen 'em all really.

  • The Woman in the Window

    The Woman in the Window

    A sort've companion piece to Fritz Lang's later SCARLET STREET but less embarrassing. Until the "it was all a dream" ending that is.

  • Scarlet Street

    Scarlet Street

    The way the two schemers go about their scheming is a lot to swallow, how dumb can Robinson's character be? But this noir still works and turns pretty spooky toward the end. Unexpected.

  • Yakuza Wolf

    Yakuza Wolf

    Exciting action film that is bogged down a wee bit by a coldness Japanese cinema of this type is often guilty of. Looking forward to watching the sequel!

  • Ski Party

    Ski Party

    Too much clothes.
