    Criminal Act

    ★½

    Newspaper ladies go wandering in the tunnels underneath the newsroom, thinking there might be giant rats or rat people or regular people there.

    This utterly baffling motion picture that has no real definable genre. It flirts with horror, thriller, comedy and even kids movie. Hell it's a kickpunching movie for half a second. But ultimately it’s none of those things. It just is. It’s a thing that exists and you’re probably only going to watch it because you’re a fan…

  • Cage

    Cage

    ★★★½

    “Shut the shit up!”

    Lou Ferrigno is shot in the head while rescuing buddy Reb Brown in Vietnam. He survives, but is now mentally a child. 20 years later the two best friends own a bar together. They get mixed up in a degenerate gambler’s desperate attempt to find a cage fighter to compete in the local Chinese underground cage fighting circuit.

    For a movie about illegal cage fighting, the actual cage fighting scenes are pretty lousy. Good thing everything…

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.

    This is a very strange extended commercial for a Steve Harvey book.
