    The Night of the Hunter

    ★★★★★

    Very evocative, stylistically beautiful and an excellent movie in which Robert Mitchum plays the diabolic Harry Powell, which do it extremely well. Directed by Charles Laughton and the film was unfortunately many hits when it came out and contributed to Charles Laughton lost the courage to make more films. A great shame, because the film is an evocative masterpiece and needed to be seen by all.

    The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

    Why is there a watermelon there?

    Holy moly what the hell was that I just watched? Completely insane far out of all the dimensions of the strangest - but most brilliant, entertaining and surprising thing I've seen for some time. A film that I never had read or heard of before, which should be absolutely impossible with the truckload of cast! I mean, just look at it.

    Really a bizarre film and story that's include Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller) as…

    Dark Angel

    ★★★★

    Dark Angel masterfully directed by Craig R. Baxley, a early 90s awesome with Dolph Lundgren in the role of detective Jack Caine. A hardcore and hard-kicking Houston vice cop that doesn't play by the rules at all, are in search of a hideous narcotic alien from outer space who is landed to harvest brain fluid from people who receive a heroin overdose, which the same alien will sell it at his home planet! It's so wonderfully far out!

    Darkman

    ★★★★★

    Film #6 of Hoop-tober 2018

    Sam Raimi wasn't lucky to obtain the rights for The Shadow, so he made Darkman instead with twisted super anti-hero Liam Neeson. And what a fine piece it is and looks super glorious on blu-ray from Scream Factory too. A revisit today makes Darkman obvious reasons very 90s, but Raimi's direction makes it timeless. Its blackly comic approach and it's wild, surreal images are unique and filled with gripping drama, action and strong characters.

    The opening with the emptiness of the desert where we see a the little girl in shock and stumbling through the desert clutching her doll, alone is worth the price of admission. Finding the little girl leads law enforcement to investigate a series of strange incidents. The answers to their…
