The Punisher (1989)

My wife has been saying I should do a review of the Dolph Lundgren version of The Punisher, so here it is. I’ve got a lot of love for this movie. I understand it gets a lot of shit because The Punisher in this version doesn’t have a skull emblem on his shirt. Many people […]

Outland (1981)

Outland is a sci-fi in appearance, but it doesn’t play like a typical sci-fi and is all the better for it. Outland is more of a western in the vein of ‘High Noon’ than any sci-fi released around the same time. It was made in 1980 and released in 1981. Back when practical effects were […]

The Believers (1987)

I remember stumbling across this gem whilst channel hopping late one night. It is a fantastic thriller directed by the late, great John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man). It stars Martin Sheen as a psychiatrist called Cal Jamison who moves to New York with his young son after his wife is killed in a tragic […]

Battlefield Earth (2000)

I felt compelled to review this turd of a movie so that others may never make the mistake I did. Dear god what a car crash of a film this is. A vanity project for John Travolta, as the story it’s based on was written by the batshit crazy L. Ron Hubbard who is the […]

Dobermann (1997)

H-O-L-Y CRAP!!! This film is just insane. I had heard about it many moons ago, so I decided to have a look for myself. This film is too crazy, almost too much for words but I’m gonna try anyway. It concerns a ruthless gang of armed robbers, who believe it or not are the good […]
