Man, Tromaville High School just can’t catch any breaks it seems. Cretins, subhumanoids, monsters – the classes of “Nuke ‘Em High” have seen their share of death and destruction, but it’s been about twenty years since we last heard from them. Seems like the perfect time for writer/director Lloyd Kaufman to go all radioactive again to torture a fresh class of Tromaville’s best and brightest if you ask me – and Troma! Yes, we all know the antics that come along with a Troma feature, and Return To Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 may be one of the most Troma-y movies Troma has ever made. The Class Of Nuke ‘Em High was built on a sturdy foundation of social satire, raw sexuality, goo-oozing gore, and slapstick, spoof-ish comedy, and Lloyd Kaufman’s latest return doesn’t abandon a single ideal. Nudity, hyper-aggressive violence, evil glee clubs, duck rape, radioactive tacos, »

“If images don’t do anything in this culture,” I said, plunging on, “if they haven’t done anything, then why are we sitting here in the twilight of the twentieth century talking about them? And if they only do things after we have talked about them, then they aren’t doing them, we are. Therefore, if our criticism aspires to anything beyond soft-science, the efficacy of images must be the cause of criticism, and not its consequence—the subject of criticism and not its object. And this,” I concluded rather grandly, “is why I direct your attention to the language of visual affect—to the rhetoric of how things look—to the iconography of desire—in a word, to beauty!” I made a voilá gesture for punctuation, but to no avail. People were quietly filing out. —Dave Hickey, The Invisible Dragon.

Hot off the successes of Crank and Crank: High Voltage, the frenetic, hyperactive commentaries on brutal, ultra-violent video games like Grand Theft Auto, the directing and writing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor tackled the social implications gaming with a much more blunt touch in their follow-up film Gamer. In the case of Gamer, Neveldine and Taylor were a little late to the conversation and had little new to say that films like The Running Man and Battle Royale hadn't already said with more panache and heart. Like the avatars it depicted, Gamer was an empty shell that moved predictably to the typical themes of escapism through violence, deniability of responsibility, and the potential evils of indulging too much in technology. Four years after the initial Blu-ray release and with the intent of capitalizing on the current 3D craze, Lionsgate has re-released Gamer with post-conversion 3D as a spectacle »
