    Never Too Young to Die


    From the mind who would later give you "Baby Geniuses" and "The Karate Dog".

    Also, you had Robert fucking Englund right there and you went with Gene Simmons?

    AKA..."Jason Goes Meta". Also, "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)" is not very good.

  • Bones



    I really enjoyed the first hour, and it has some fantastic and disturbing pracrtical effects(primarily the souls in "Hell"). However, distracting CG and awful dialogue drag it down, The movie can't decide if Jimmy Bones is an supernatural avenger or a Freddy Krueger knockoff. I think Ernest Dickerson nails the blaxploitation feel and Pam Grier is fantastic. It's always great to see Katharine Isabelle even if she's has nothing to do here. Snoop Dogg is fine despite the problems with the character. Mild recommendation.

    If you thought "Deadpool 2" was great, this is a glorified blu-ray extra.

    If you thought "Deadpool 2" was "meh", this is a glorified blu-ray extra.

    If you thought "Deadpool 2" was awful, this is a glorified blu-ray extra.

    The stuff with Fred Savage is really funny, but this is a definite rental only.

    Amazon Prime has a lot of movies, they also have a lot of "movies?". These "movies?" seem to disregard the rules of cinema, sanity, common sense and good taste. SCORPION THUNDERBOLT(AKA SNAKE) is such an example.

    Reporter Helen(Juliet Chan) has a problem. See, whenever a blind man that follows her plays the flute, she becomes a snake demon and kills people. While reporting a news story where a crazy man is running around throwing the entrails of a cat, she…

    Between this and JUNGLE TRAP, I'm under the belief that James Bryan is an alien from another planet.

    Thor: Ragnarok


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    THOR: RAGNAROK is very hilarious and another entertaining entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While all the THOR movies have had comedic moments mixed in with action, RAGNAROK's buddy comedy leanings almost outweighs the more serious aspects of the movie.

    Chris Hemsworth's comedic timing has grown throughout the films and his interactions with Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, and Tom Hiddleston are the highlights. Thompson is a welcome presence as Valkyrie and I look forward to seeing the ass-kicking from her…
