Shotgun – 1989 – A truly gruesome flick

Ok, let’s not kid ourselves. This is a horrible movie. The acting is so bad you could use this as a discouragement for hoe to not make a movie. The story itself is very shallow and I had no time figuring out what was supposed to be the send twist of it all. Maybe that’s not so far-fetched since many of these low budget flicks from the eighties are less than good and more than...

Smokey and the Bandit 2 – 1980 – One more time

Smokey and the Bandit was the film that I thought I saw back in the old days. It’s seems that it actually was the first movie though since I don’t reorganize anything from this one. It may seem odd that I’ve seen and reviewed thousands of flicks but never saw these classics. But that’s how it is and you can never cover everything on your frame of reference even how much you try. In this...

Smokey and the Bandit – 1977 – Car Chase Classic

All my life I thought that it was actually the sequel to this I saw in the cinema. But when I watched this (and the sequel) I realized that this was the one I saw. I don’t remember much but some fragments are clear. Smokey and the Bandit are a high speed action comedy where car chases are the theme. It’s not the kind of movie I usually like but this is pretty entertaining. Burt...

The Gladiator – 1986 – A trip back to nostalgia land

This is yet another movie that I saw several years ago. You know when the VHS rental stores still existed. I don’t think I saw it immediately when it came out, I guess a couple of years later. I remember thinking the cover was awesome and that the movie really didn’t live up to my expectations. In other words, I remember it as a pretty lame movie. But the title was cool – The Gladiator...

Hero and the Terror – 1988 – a Chuck Norris Gem

I remember when this came out. It was something special and it was mentioned in movie mags I was reading at the time. This was not an ordinary Chuck Norris film. It wasn’t just filled with action, karate kicks and machine gun fire. In Hero and the Terror Chuck Norris breaks down and even faints. He shows himself vulnerable to pressure. Something, according to the magazine never had happened before. Well, I don’t know. I...

Enter the Ninja – 1981 – Franco Nero is badass!

I was still in my youth when I first saw this film. I thought it was horrible! I really liked one ninja flick and that was Ninja III: The Domination. The need to compare all other ninja flicks to that one was imminent. It wasn’t until later that I understood that not all ninja flicks deal with supernatural powers. In fact, very few of them does. Enter the Ninja is really one of those movies that...

Death Race 2050 – 2017 – Cult Classic Remake

There are remakes and there are remakes. Some of them tell the story in a slightly different way and som of the copy the original frame by frame. Death Race 2050 falls under the first category but a little bit under the second one too. It’s a very entertaining movie that follows the main story of the original – Death Race 2000. Of course the original had both Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine in the...

Ninja Dragon – 1986 – Not so much Ninja..

Ninja Dragon seems to be the left overs from some other ninja flick done in the same era. Richard Harrisson looks exactly the way he did in Ninja Terminator and there’s not much plot in this one. Actually there’s not much “ninja” either. There is a few scenes where they fight each other but for the most part this is more like a regular crime thriller. It’s dubbed of course but I don’t care about...

Ninja Terminator – 1985 – A more serious approach

I have watched a lot of Ninja films lately. They’re often great fun even if they’re badly choreographed and dubbed even worse. That reflects on the grades of course and I haven’t been kind in my judgement. I’m actually very cheap when it comes to grades so that figures. Ninja Terminator is another Ninja flick that I saw the other day. It’s much more serious than a lot of the others but not without humor....

Divergent – 2014 – A Dystopian Tale

In a future society the world doesn’t work quite the same way as we know it. There are five fractions of people and you must belong to one of them. Everyone does indeed belong to them too. Well, almost everyone. Once in a blue moon someone get past the tests without being selected to one of the groups – officially that is. These people are known as divergents and they don’t fit anywhere or… everywhere....
