    Death Race 2050

    ★★★

    Campy amped up remake of the original which suprisingly has some nice bits of satire peppered into the film but thankfully it doesn't get to heavy handed. My only real gripes are the CGI blood which really looks awful and the excessive green screen work. In the end, It's not as good as the original but more fun than the Statham remake. If your in the mood for a cheesy action movie to kill 90 minutes you could do a lot worse. Grab some pizza, beer and enjoy.

    Night of Dark Shadows

    ★★★½

    A film set in the world of the Dark Shadows. This is visually beautiful movie that unfortunately had at least 30 minutes cut before it's release. The cuts really hurt the film and it's very incoherent but despite that I enjoy it. Not a movie for the average viewer but if you enjoy gothic horror and Dark Shadows this is worth a look.

    Lambert is good…

    While backpacking through Europe, two friends, David Kessler (David Naughton) and Jack Goodman (Griffin Dunne), find themselves out on England's moors, despite advice to avoid them. When a wild animal attacks them, one of them dies, and the other just might be turning into a monster.

    Director John Landis' "pet project"--he had to sit on the script for 10 years before he had enough clout from other films for this one to be green lighted--is an excellent, seamless melding of…
