Smith, story by Billy Ray Director: Julius Avery Distributor: Paramount Release Date: November 9, 2018 OVERLORD is a new entry in the rich tradition of mixing Nazis and horror. Unlike most other entries in this often low-budget subgenre, OVERLORD is not only comparatively well-funded, but it also works throughout as a pretty good WWII combat mission movie, albeit with some super-gory twists. We see OVERLORD mostly from the viewpoint of […]Read On »

Whether it’s the story of the late rock star and his still-living band mates seems open to question. There is no doubt, however, that BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is worth seeing. Rami Malek channels something akin to divine ecstasy when he is playing Mercury […]Read On »

He burst out with that since it’s Disney night no one would be going home. Funny, not so much for couples Alexis Ren & Alan Bernsten and DeMarcus Ware & Lindsey Arnold who were the […]Read On »

Stars: Sho Kosugi, Lucinda Dickey, Jordan Bennett Writer: James R. Silke Director: Sam Firstenberg Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $27.99 The output of infamous exploitation production company Cannon Films from the 1980s was filled with action films starring Chuck Norris, Charles Bronson, Michael Dudikoff, but their other magic touch was riding the wave of current trends and then remixing them out of the stratosphere. In addition to the conventional break dancing films BREAKIN’ and the far more memorable sequel title of BREAKIN’ 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO, they hit their apex in trend squatting with NINJA III: THE DOMINATION in 1984.
