    Chickboxer

    ★★★

    chick boxer is kind of a pure piece of cinema, sov but with a of heart, chick boxer could be easily derided and im sure it has been but i felt a lot of warmth in this pure 80s "taking down the bad guys will solve my problems" formulae. i might be drunk when im writing this but i really enjoyed it, for a film i onlhy watched because michelle bauer is in it i came away pleasently surprised.

  • Death Mask

    Death Mask

    ★★½

    i didnt understand this film at all and i only watched it to be a linnea completist. would not recommend.

  • Prayer of the Rollerboys

    Prayer of the Rollerboys

    ★★★½

    paul from sleepaway camp is in this!!!!!!!

    i enjoyed this though its running time was certainly felt. the sets were fully realised, haim was good, the trenchcoat wearing rollerboys were ridiculous and i just love a dystopian future with teens, you know?

  • Star Time

    Star Time

    ★★

    i couldnt put my finger on why i took an instant dislike to this film and then i realised the main guy is the asshole from senior week

  • Scanners II: The New Order

    Scanners II: The New Order

    ★★★½

    when this gets going it really sucked me in, it was gross and weird but it was wrapped up in some essentally small town politics. reminded me a bit of The Fly II (but not as good)

  • A Time to Die

    A Time to Die

    ★★★

    traci lords backstory in this movie is absolutely bananas but one thing i liked is the comradere between Lords and her husband's new gf.

    matthew lillard doesnt even look remotely like matthew lillard in this poster how has this happened?

    part SOV mess, part SOV music promo mess.

  • S.F.W.

    S.F.W.

    ★★★½

    this is either the most scathing, self aware attack on gen x ever put on film or it's genuinely the worst film ever made and I'm leaning towards the first option because there's no way you would play teenage whore over a girl shagging and mean that seriously right?

    if you take this is a response to the angsty 90s grunge movies pandering to teenagers i think it all just clicks into place.

    i can't believe the guy is called SPAB like that is even a name

  • Mommy

    Mommy

    ★★

    patty is absolutely wonderful but this is some no budget bullshit.

  • And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird!

    To Sleep with a Vampire

    the 90s really was the decade for boring experimental vampire movies huh
