    The Warriors

    ★★★★★

    My love for this movie in insurmountable and was one of the defining movies of my childhood. Nothing was cooler than a a series of gangs chasing after a gang in the bowels of late 70’s New York City. The iconic look of the Furies is awesome, the whole lore of all of the gangs is very cool. The game by Rockstar that came out back in the day was the shit too. It doesn’t hurt that my last name means Warrior in Spanish and my favorite sports team is the Warriors.

  • I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

    I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

    ★★★

    It’s very goofy compared to the classic that is the first installment, but it has so many gems throughout. Jefferey Combs, Jack Black with dreads, Brandy and Mekhi Phifer. Jennifer Love Hewitt is and will always be a babe and she looks most exceptional in this. She did in the first as well but I feel like Sarah Michelle Gellar stole some of that light in the first one. Anywho, this movie is pretty dumb, but still a good time if you’re a fan of late 90’s slashers.

  • Blood Red Sky

    Blood Red Sky

    ★★★½

    I really enjoyed my time while watching this. There’s plenty of cliches and what not but I loved how it all played out. My biggest gripe would be it felt a tad too long as times, but I loved how creepy the vampires were, as well as how bloody and violent it got. This movie really held no punches. I felt that the acting was really solid and there was only one terrible character movie, which was by the rich prick. Other than that, I feel like I could get down with watching this again.

  • Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker

    Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker

    ★★★★

    This movie was crazy as fuck, and I loved it. The crazy aunt was definitely inspired by Bette Davis’ performance in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” And I have to say that she creeped me the fuck out. Although the blood and violence are somewhat sporadic, when it did occur it was some really great stuff. The whole homosexual love triangle business was definitely a wacky part of the story. The detective was a real piece of shit to damn near everybody lol. If I were to have any complaint, it’d be for more Bill Paxton as the bully.

  • Die Hard: With a Vengeance

    Die Hard: With a Vengeance

    ★★★★

    Nothing quite like watching this in a hotel room, A/C on full blast, while I’m drunk as fuck. It doesn’t hit like the original but this is easily my second favorite in the franchise. The same old John McClane shenanigans, add Samuel L. Jackson as his trusty companion, and Jeremy Irons are Hans Gruber’s long lost bro. Fun time all throughout with so much intense moments.

  • The Dead Zone

    The Dead Zone

    ★★★★

    Supremely underrated Cronenberg. That collab between him and Stephen King couldn’t have resulted in anything better. First time I watched this I was sort of blown away, yet somewhat bored for all of the build up, but this time around I had nothing but pure enjoyment. Christopher Walken is so good, as is the rest of the cast. Still can’t get over how the good Martin Sheen is all the evil Politician.

    As always, Scream Factory killed it with the…

  • Vicious Lips

    Vicious Lips

    ★★½

    From the visionary director who brought us Captain America & The Sword and the Sorcerer, comes Vicious Lips. It’s about a galactic all women rock band that rock their hearts out. That’s pretty much all I can tell you. I have no idea what the point of this movie was and what was really going on half the time but hey, it was definitely something lol.

  • Open Your Eyes

    Open Your Eyes

    ★★★★

    “I felt like Tom Cruise, in Vanilla Sky.”

    This was a very good Spanish thriller, that I went into completely blind. Doing that definitely paid off. The acting was superb and the story was engaging enough. The highlight for me was definitely Penelope Cruz. She’s so strikingly beautiful and is just an all around fantastic actress. Now I guess I should make an effort to see the American remake.

    ABRE LOS OJOS.

  • The Phantom of the Opera

    The Phantom of the Opera

    ★★★½

    For a 1925 silent film, this was very good. Lon Chaney’s makeup for the Phantom was really good and genuinely scary. If I was a young chap back in the 20’s and saw this movie, I’d definitely be all creeped out. The story is really good too, and even though I’m slackin’ on watching the OG monster movies, this one was probably one of my favorites.

    ★★½

    I love me some Kate Bekinsale. Ever since those Underworld days, she’s always been a babe. She was legit one of my biggest celeb crushes when I was younger lol. This movie had some okay action, but as you’d imagine, it was fairly predictable. The movie had some comedic moments but it was such a mess of a movie I feel like. I did enjoy it overall, and it’s left open for a sequel to be made but I just don’t see the market. I doubt it’ll make Amazon any money lol.

  • Twilight Zone: The Movie

    Twilight Zone: The Movie

    ★★½

    The opening story by John Landis is big yikes alert, even without mentioned how two children and an actor died in real life. Stephen Spielberg’s bit is sweet and cute and all that but it’s honestly hot garbage. Joe Dante’s was pretty fun and was everything you’d expect from a Joe Dante flick. The best one is the finale, by George Miller though. The creature in the sky with a crazy John Lithgow was awesome. Overall, a fairly weak anthology that did nothing to advance the popularity of The Twilight Zone.

  • Messiah of Evil

    Messiah of Evil

    ★★★½

    This was surprisingly creepy and eerie, but my biggest complaint was the pacing. Like most 70’s horror movies, they suffer from being almost unbearably slow for an hour, then start to heat up in final thirty minutes. I did like the creepy zombie people on this coastal seaside town. I also love movies that have women with that classic 70’s babe look. All in all, I can see why this is an underrated horror staple. It definitely isn’t for everyone though.
