    Troublesome Night 3

    ★★★★

    I don't know what deal with the devil Herman Yau made, but after his extremely poor showing on the previous two Troublesome Night movies, this is an almost unbelievable step up.

    It may be that the budget was upped after the success of the first two movies, as this is all a lot slicker. There are still not really any special effects to speak of, but the camera moves, there's more thought to set ups and lighting, and the cinematography…

    Prince: Rave un2 the Year 2000

    ★★★★★

    A long time ago, Prince screamed "Can I play my guitar?" then played the solo to She's Always in My Hair while dressed in a blue PVC jumpsuit.

    This was where humanity peaked. It's been downhill ever since.

    And I Hate You So

    ★★★

    And I Hate You So features two fairly limited actors as its leads (Aaron Kwok and Kelly Chen), a completely superfluous subplot with Teresa Mo and Eric Tsang that takes up nearly half the running time, a central romance that is completely baffling, and, for a romantic comedy, it isn't really all that funny. I didn't hate it!

    Kwok is frequently miscast (and it is usually glorious when he is), but his role as a cocky playboy is basically smack…

    The Predator

    ★★★

    The autism subplot is a massive misstep and the final 40 minutes or so are out and out garbage, but until that point The Predator is actually pretty fun.

    Not quite sure why Black and Dekker decided they wanted a Predator movie that was also a remake of the 1989 Michael Keaton film 'The Dream Team', but the characters are great, the jokes are funny, and the action's solid.

    In the final act of course, there are no jokes, and…

    Kung Fu Zombie

    ★★★★

    It's every bit as good as it's title. Here are some fun facts:

    1: If Kung Fu Zombie's sped up action is slowed down to normal speed the movie is actually 43 hours long.
    2: A man roundhouse kicks someone's head off.

  • Knock Off

    Knock Off

    ★★★★★

    Imagine a movie where everyone involved was either on cocaine or acting like they were. Imagine a movie where Rob Schneider plays a CIA agent. A movie where Schneider whips Jean Claude Van Damme with an eel. A movie about explosive jeans. A movie with a soundtrack by Sparks. A movie with some of the most insane camera-work ever committed to film. A movie with Michael Fitzgerald Wong.

    Also, it's one of the greatest action movies of the nineties.

    Anyone…
