Lots of people love Olympus Has Fallen, particularly action fans. I have to admit I found it pretty dull, so riddled with cliches and inert and it just bored me. But I suppose it's satiated a lot of fans looking for an old-style 80s action flick.

The Mark of Zorro- Gorgeously shot black and white swashbuckler that's basically a riff on Robin Hood. The handsome Tyrone Power is a dashing lead, some of the stunts remain pretty impressive, there's a nice dollop of romance, some superb cinematography, and Rathbone is a deliciously slimy villain. The ancestor of many superhero pulp fantasies of today, it's a gloriously old-fashioned, straight-faced adventure, overcoming its lack of logic with sheer exuberance and style.

The Adventures of Robin Hood- Three-strip technicolor swashbuckler starring the comparable Errol Flynn and featuring yet another deliciously villainous turn by Rathbone. Though the film's morality and simplicity are decidedly black-and-white, the color scheme and beautiful production design are simply gorgeous, though the version I saw on TCM did look a bit muted. I have to get my Luddite ass to calibrate my damn HDTV properly. The kind of thing which eventually paved the way for Lucas and Jackson's much louder and more bombastic adventures, the film is the same type of reality-be-damned escapism, and though you could find fault in its old-fashioned simple narrative and values, you'd be missing the point. Watch it in the right mindset and it's way too much fun to resist.

Mimic (1997): It was my first time viewing the Director's Cut of the film and I enjoyed it. The dated CG took me out of a couple scenes, but luckily they were far and few between.

Blind Woman's Curse
(1970): Equal parts beautiful, violent and hilarious.

Terror Firmer (1999): A bit long for this type of film, but it was pretty hilarious/gross throughout.

Hardware (1990): I absolutely love this film. I could watch this and Stanley's 1993 film 'Dust Devil' all day.

Demons (1985): Always fun every single time I've watched it. Synapse Films' Blu-Ray is absolutely gorgeous.

John Carter of Mars- You really can't know how much I wanted to like this film. I love Pixar, love Stanton's previous films, love Burroughs pulp novels, like space opera, like sci-fi westerns, and the whole thing sounds like it would've been a promising start to a new franchise. It's not. A failure on almost every possible level from its incomprehensible screenplay on upward, the movie is dull, the many visual effects are thoroughly unimpressive, the action sequences have little kick, it squanders its massive budget, has almost no one worth caring about, and isn't any fun at all. A century-old idea that should've been a blast with modern special effects, bungled in every possible way. A deserved failure.

The Lone Ranger- And here we go again. A movie constantly at odds with itself, another massive failure from Disney, this one from the creators of the overrated Pirates of the Caribbean, it oscillates from gruesome content totally inappropriate for a Disney film to broad comedy to political tract about genocide. A classic example of a blockbuster so desperate to please everyone that it pleases no one, its special-effects filled set pieces are wholly at odds with the simplicity of the Western, Monument Valley-style shots blending terribly with CG, the film is unsure if it's a comedy or a gritty deconstruction, and it's no fun at all. Depp and Verbinski do their usual shtick, the movie is overblown, way, way, way too long, and has a massive identity crisis. The central characters are engaging and Bruckheimer loads up on great actors as always, but almost nothing works. Like the above, it was a massive box office failure and a terrible attempt at what could've been a very fun new franchise.

Demons 2 (1986): I love the 40-45 minutes or so of this film, then it really starts to drag ass.

Money Train was on Showtime, it's actually a better heist movie than I remember it being prob because of the Harrelson/Snipes chemistry.

Sleepless Night - 4/5

A man steals a duffle bad filled with drugs from a gangster. Later that day his son is kidnapped and is threatened to be killed unless the bag is returned to it's owner. He decides to return the bag, but little does he know that there are other parties interested in the bag and returning it is not going to be as easy as he thought. An adrenaline loaded French thriller that makes up for it's unoriginal plot by keeping you at the edge of your seat. Feels like Die Hard in a nightclub instead of a skyscraper and it makes those Luc Besson produced action films look like amateur hour.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - 5/5 - Best Marvels film to date! I like the fight scene. I waited until ending credit rolls over with 2 scenes. Its the sequel to CA3 and A:AoU.

Pierrot Le Fou (1965): Absolutely beautiful and unorthodox. I find more reasons to love this film every single time I view it.

Martin - 4.5/5

George Romero's classic about an 84 year old man (who looks 20) with a craving for blood. Is he really a vampire or just another alienated youth surrounded by urban decay looking for human contact? An intelligent & creepy deconstruction of the vampire film and it's lore.

About Time Interesting romantic/dramedy. A touch long at times but a good watch with the wife.

Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971): As much as I love this film, it's filled with the most obnoxious characters this side of Berzano.

Return of the Blind Dead (1973): Fun film! Felt like a sleazier version of it's predecessor. There's even one scene where footage from the first film is re-used.

Cold Comes the Night

Extremely low budget thriller starring Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad.
