El Día de la Bestia – 1995 – The Day of the Beast

My Spanish is almost non existing. There are a couple of words I actually understand but apart from that it’s all gibberish to me. But there’s luckily English subtitles on The Day of the Beast. For some reason I thought that this was a horror flick. Well, it’s easy to make that assumption with such a title for the movie. But if you’re attentive you’ll notice that the cover actually says that this is a...

Smokey and the Bandit 3 – 1983 – Third installment

It’s not unusual that sequels get worse and worse the longer away from the original movie they come. Smokey and the Bandit is not an exception. The first film was fun and entertaining. The second seemed like torture for the actors and this… well… even Burt Reynolds refused this one! There are a few flashbacks in the beginning and some scenes at the end where he’s present though. I’m not sure if this is recycled...

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...

Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance – 2014

I can’t remember how I first got in contact with Birdman. I guess it was some of my friends that recommended it for me. Anyway, I watched it the other day and was blown away for many aspects of it. First of all the pace is very high. It starts right away and at first you don’t have a clue what the hell this is. The story is as complicated as it is simple. We...

Golden Ninja Warrior – 1986 – Meet the red ninja

There are several issues with this flick. First of all there is a battle going on between the golden ninja clan (or something like that) and the red ninjas. The problem is that I only remember the red ninja. Second it’s far to comedic. A comedy ninja flick is kind of a contradiction in my mind. Of course we have flicks like Beverly Hills Ninja with Chris Farley. But that’s a comedy first and a...

Dr Alien 0

Dr Alien - 1989 - Lots of tits

Possibly the silliest movie I’ve ever seen. But kind of cool in a strange way. Judy Landers is sort of a sexy teacher who turns out to be an alien. She and her colleague performs some experiment on one of the student. This transforms him from a nerd to a really hut hunk that all the girls want. Most of this flick is an excuse for exhibit boobs. I don’t mind it at all but...

Ghost Warrior – 1984 – A frozen Samurai

I must admit that I never heard about this movie before. It was more or less a bonus when I ordered som other stuff. It seemed nice and I figured, what the heck?! So I got Ghost Warrior and started watching it. The beginning is set in feudal Japan and I was hoping for it to stay there. It didn’t though and I guess that’s the whole point of the movie. In a fight this...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – 2016

It’s easy to believe that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would be up to par with JK Rowlings famous Harry Potter saga. This is far from the truth though. At least it is in my mind. I wasn’t even aware that it was a JK Rowlings story until the end credits. Of course I should have made the connection when Hogwarts are mentioned, but I didn’t. It’s actually referenced several times but I...

Trailer: Garden Party Massacre

I got this trailer in the mail a couple of weeks ago. Since I have a huge backlog I haven’t really got around to watch it until now. It seems to be great fun though. The actors, based on the trailer might not be top notch but it’s always hard to get a context out of compilation clips like this. If I can get my hands on it I will review it for you! Wish...
