“#245 of 2013 - A good, First Blood-esque film with a lot of potential and some great performances. Gets a tad repetitive in places but the payoff makes it all the more worth it. A nice little action thriller with a good decent ozploitation-heyday vibe.”
“#244 of 2013 - In a nutshell, it's very obviously, Die Hard at the Stanley Cup final with Van Damme. Its wholesale stealing from Die Hard is done clumsily and without understanding but it's such an over-the-top lot of fun that you don't care. Van Damme...”
“#243 of 2013 - The hunt for a very sick and twisted serial kidnapper/killer takes a personal and grittier turn when a police detective's daughter is taken. Not quite exciting enough and the audience is easily ahead of the characters in terms of all the...”
“#242 of 2013 - A so-so script, pretty decent direction and much better acting than it deserves makes this quiet, quick but mostly redundant little thriller a decent enough time passer but not much else. ”
“#241 of 2013 - After a slow start, prolonged, ludicrous and unnecessary cold-turkey induced hallucinations and too much waffling, this interesting take on what would happen if a drug addled Sherlock Holmes met Sigmund Freud gradually picks up steam int...”
“#240 of 2013 - Glickenhaus brings his usual madness to this Jackie Chan vehicle. Everyone in the film looks uncomfortable to be there but the stunts are top notch and Jimmy "The Glick" Glickenhaus doesn't let you down with over the top violence, an irr...”
“#239 of 2013 - A boys own adventure based on the true story of the sinking of 3 German ships during WWII by a bunch of old British blokes. It's proper stiff-upper-lip derring do and worth it for the exotic locations, the superb acting, the wry humour a...”
“#238 of 2013 - A stunning and haunting portrayal of one man's descent into a lost week of hell set against the backdrop of the Australian outback. Every shot is utterly beautiful, even if the acts and situations being depicted aren't. The acting is per...”
“#237 of 2013 - Superfly, Shaft, Coffy, The Hammer and Black Gunn all in the same film directed by the man who brought us Black Caesar?
Original Gangstas is like The Expendables of Blaxploitation.
It's a bit over the top but it really had to be to buy...”
“#236 of 2013 - A semi decent attempt to do a James Bond like film for the Blaxploitation era. It's a shame it's not better written and more pact/action packed because it would've been great to have seen The Hammer (Williamson) turn this into a series.
“#235 of 2013 - An odd film, made for TV, that is part legal drama, part cop drama, part blaxploitation and part historical book adaptation. It is in this latter part that the film falls down. The film, I guess, in order to make it more exciting or some...”
“#234 of 2013 - Yes it lacks the visual flourishes, pleasing camera work and soundtrack of classic 70s Argento but what it lacks, it more than makes up for with a decent plot (for a change), Max Von Sydow and some good extreme gore. Definitely worth che...”
“#233 of 2013 - An early giallo. Not bad. A decent mystery, some decent bits but overall not as horrific, tense, gory or fun as I would've liked. Not a bad film though. Just a bit like an extended TV mystery, with tits.”
“#232 of 2013- A fantastic giallo with perfect style, a tremendous soundtrack, mad performances and a plot that makes little sense how it all links together (in the traditional sense) but still a fantastic watch.
Definitely one of Argento's best but de...”
“#231 of 2013 - Nonsense machismo with ludicrous slow-mo, mad explosions and the most ridiculous of electric guitar soundtracks. Still it has some enjoyably watchable performances from a great cast delivering infantile dialogue in a jaw droopingly hilar...”
