    My review of the disasterpiece (thanks, Heidenreich) known as Deadly Prey, a.k.a. Hambo...

    A privately funded mercenary outfit* is led by a man named Hogan (David Campbell), a tough-as-nails Vietnam vet. He trains his men in an unusual way; by live hunting of kidnapped people! I guess that's why it's privately funded. One day, his recruiters are cruising through a suburban neighborhood in their dark green van and decide to grab a random man who was just trying to put…

    "Captain's log, supplemental. What a day! Started out well, with the wedding reception for Will and Deanna. Not all are looking forward to the upcoming ceremony on Betazed, for...traditional reasons, but we'll do what we must. At any rate, things picked up with news of a positronic signal emanating from Kolarus III. Decided to investigate, and I was able to test the new Argo shuttlecraft and its ATV ground unit, the uncreatively named Argo ATV, which does not resemble a…

    After the death of Swiss forestry robot Mont Blanc, one of the seven greatest robots on Earth, Europol inspector Gesicht, one of the seven himself, is on the case. He finds Mont Blanc's head, along with a pair of branches at the side, looking like horns. Soon, they also find dead humans with makeshift horns as well. Gesicht will need the help of the rest of the greatest robots on earth to solve these mysteries and end this bizarre streak…

    Twelve Crowded Hours

    ★★

    It's a busy night for reporter Nick Green (Richard Dix), as he tries to take down a numbers racket, getting chummy with the boss of the outfit (Cy Kendall) in an effort to take him down. Twelve hours later, has he done it?

    I knew this wasn't highly rated going in, but I didn't care; it has Dix, a favorite of mine, and Lucille Ball, who, though displayed prominently on the poster, is barely in it, unfortunately. Even when she…

    Star Trek: Insurrection

    ★★★

    A species called the Son'a suffers from a condition that is slowly breaking down their bodies. (think Vidiians, but not as gross) Meanwhile, the Ba'ku live on a planet that regenerates them constantly, giving them unnaturally long, healthy lives. The Son'a plan to take over the planet and, surprisingly, is in cahoots with the Federation to forcibly relocate the Ba'ku! The Prime Directive seems to have gone out the window, and the crew of the Enterprise isn't having it.

    It…

    Violent Saturday

    ★★★★

    Three crooks (Stephen McNally, Lee Marvin and J. Carrol Naish) come to a small town called Bradenville, intent on robbing their bank. To get coordinated, Naish cases the bank, Marvin snoops around town, and McNally finds an Amish farm—run by Mr. Stadt (Ernest Borgnine) and his family—where they'll flee to after the deed is done. But they're not counting on the resourcefulness and bravery of the townsfolk, in particular one Mr. Martin (Victor Mature).

    I liked this one quite a…
