    Any Gun Can Play

    ★★

    I’ll put this into a Castalarri learns how to make a movie place. Has several nods to Leone’s work to that point, and doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre. You get over the top fight scenes similar to the Trinity movies, multiple double crosses, a hard to follow series of events at points, and not much else. 

    The print for this is atrocious. Looks like a VHS movie that was scanned and panned. Hard to tell who was who in medium and long shots. If you’re going to try to make money off a movie, put some effort into making it visible. 🙈🙈

    Fake it til you make it as a good person.

    Possibly the earliest Lionel Stander film I've seen before he testified in the 1953 HUAC hearings. Most of his films I've seen were during his Rome period.

    ★★★★

    A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.

    ★★★★

    This isn’t the movie Mega City 1 deserves, but it is the movie Mega City 1 needs. A violent, dark dystopia wherein Judges enforce the law with no remorse. In other words, fairly faithful to the comics I’ve read.

    The best comparison in terms of plot, tone, and production design is the first half of The Raid before all of the hand to hand combat began. 

    A good double feature with the 1987 Robocop, this is too dark and violent for many.
