American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt

At the bitter end of a ten-year slide into ever-cheaper productions, The Cannon Group sends stars David Bradley (a nice guy), Steve James (everyone's favorite) and Marjoe Gortner (a stiff) to South Africa for an anemic entry in this series. Cannon is considered a 'fun' subject this year because of those funny documentaries that came out. Savant cut the trailer for this particular picture, so takes the opportunity to talk about the wild life and times in the Cannon trailer department.

Fright At Home: August 27th’s DVD & Blu-ray Releases!

Today may not be a massive day for home video for some people, but most people have not been introduced to the insane fun of I Come In Peace (or Dark Angel, whichever floats your Lundgren boat). It’s something of a miracle that Scream Factory’s brought it to Blu-ray, and a testament to how incredible they are. Also out from Scream & Shout Factory are Larry Cohen’s Q: The Winged Serpent on Blu-ray, Charles Bronson & Lee Marvin’s western team-up Death Hunt, an action-packed double feature of The Barbarians and The Norseman, and last but not least Season 3 of The Walking Dead from Anchor Bay.

I’ve attached artwork and links below to purchase if you so desire!

Forgotten Action Cinema: Double Trouble

If you didn’t grow up during the late-80′s/early-90′s, you may not remember the Barbarian Brothers. Peter and David Paul were muscle-bound body builders known for their extreme dedication to their craft. One look at their impossibly chiseled physique and you knew you were dealing with a different breed of weight-lifter. In 1987, someone got the bright idea to cast the siblings in a fantasy flick called “The Barbarians”, a film I vaguely recall during the late-night Cinemax escapades of my youth. The film must have been a moderate success, as the brothers found themselves in a small batch of like-minded action/comedies which focused on the fact that they were big, they were strong, and, more importantly, they were twins. Enter John Paragon’s 1992 epic “Double Trouble”, a buddy cop flick which finds the two brothers joining forces to take down the dastardly son-of-a-bitch behind a high-stakes jewel smuggling operation.

Clip joint: breakup scenes

This week, John Carvill steals himself through the sobs and reminds us of the best cinematic separations

"Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs," sang Paul McCartney. Others do something similiar with movies: from the silents to 3D, the arthouse to the multiplex, romance sells. Why? Well, to give and receive love is an innate human need: once we've sorted those bare necessities such as food and shelter, love is next on the agenda.

Romcoms may be hugely popular, but that name is misleading – in real life, relationships are seldom funny. Love can be hard work, and it can hurt. As a sagacious stranger warns Woody Allen in Annie Hall, love can fade. Love can die. Make love, not war – or so they say – but what about when love becomes war, what about when it kills? That's why breakup scenes are so powerful. They're the romantic equivalent
