Natural Enemies (Blu-ray)
by Justin Remer
"The American family is dying anyway. Without your help."The Movie: Is Paul Steward going to murder his family and himself?

One Potato, Two Potato (Blu-ray)
by Jesse Skeen
Racism has been an ugly part of American history, but in the 1960s more films were calling it out.

We see this first hand when he takes down some bad guys in the opening scene. From here, he winds up at a dive bar in Los Angeles where he meets aspiring musician Malik Brody (Kadeem Hardison), just as some more bad guys show up only to once again get slaughtered by Wong.In quick need of an escape route, Wong winds up taking Malik hostage to a certain extent, forcing him to drive him out of the city in his car to escape from those chasing him down. It's here that Wong explains to Brody his situation. As the bad guys, led by Vic Madison (John Pyper-Ferguson) working for the mysterious Mr. Lau (Jam...Read the entire review »
