    The Basketball Fix

    ★★

    "The movie and subject matter that millions of theater goers have been waiting and clamoring for".

    How's that for a bunch of ballyhoo bullshit made up by yours truly? I'm not a basketball fan in the least but when I saw a photo of the dvd-r posted in the Something Weird Video facebook group I knew I had to see this. I love the old exploitation roadshow films about all kinds of vices and rackets but basketball? Basketball???

    Immediately I…

  • Mandy

    Mandy

    ★★★½

    Pitch black in the house, family asleep in bed, dog curled up beside me, cell phone dead silent, big screen tv, blu-ray and headphones resulted in a glorious viewing experience of a movie that held me spellbound and grateful to be alive and a fan of genre films. 

    Captivating in every way, my fears of being another viewer missing the boat on “Mandy” were put to rest after two hours of visual and audio bliss. I didn’t think I would ever…

    ★★★½

    First watch since the theatrical run when I took my 83 year old grandpa to see it and it was friggin awesome. 

    Over the top grindhouse action with splattery kills, hot broads and a marquee full of superstars both in and out of genre cinema. I’ll be picking up the sequel later today.

    ★½

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

    A forgettable spaghetti western that I would rank near the bottom out of all the ones I have seen to date. Bland acting, uninteresting characters,  paint by numbers script and an abismal score. 
    Points earned for making our “hero” a piece of shit bank robber and murderer who ends up half crippled and drags himself all over the map for exacting his revenge and all for nothing. 

    Seek this one if it is nearly free or if you’re a junkie like me that wants to see every spaghetti western available.

    All I could think about before I went to bed was "please don't let me die in my sleep and make this piece of garbage the last movie I ever watched".

  • Wait Until Dark

    Wait Until Dark

    ★★★★

    Susie just may be the most adorable house wife ever. I wanted to take a hold of her and never let her go.

    If a cramped looking and slow building movie isn't your cup of tea then you had better move on to something else. However, if you enjoy great acting, an intricate and detailed plot and some tension thrown in then sit back and take this ride.

    Is it perfect? Very few films are.
    Is it engrossing? I thought so.
