Crop And Save
Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
A dark, well directed film, with little compassion.
A real art-house film. Don't watch this if you're looking for simple entertainment, it isn't here. On the other hand, if you're looking for a film that draws you in and makes you think, then this is a film for you. Cage plays the pathetic drunk extremely well, demanding and receiving no compassion. Shue on the other hand is the prostitute that's trying to improve her lot in life. Why they get together, I still don't understand, but they play nicely off each other. The film is full of despair, and offers very little in the way of hope. A cautious recommendation
Wanted: Dead or Alive (1987)
A great action film, a must-see in its genre.
Action all the way, this is Hauer at his best. I first saw this movie about ten years ago, and remembered it only for its final scene; I still remembered the line "**** the bonus!". When watching the film again all these years later, unlike most movies, I actually got more from it than the first time I saw it. For action fans everywhere, put this on your must-see list.
Vampire in Brooklyn (1995)
Neither fully a horror, a comedy nor a romance, this film lacks direction
As a comedy, this film is too serious, as a horror, it's too cheesy, and as a romance, Murphy is too busy being in love with himself. Despite all that, the film is quite enjoyable so long as you have no preconceptions. I'm glad I saw it, but I won't be watching this one again.
Slums of Beverly Hills (1998)
Lacking a beginning, a middle and an end, but still an entertaining film.
I don't know where this film was going, and I don't know if it got there, this was a bizarre plot. Despite all that, I quite enjoyed the entertainment, there were some very funny moments that raised this above the average film. So long as you don't expect a beginning, a middle and an end, then you should enjoy this film. If you must have those three components in their logical order, look elsewhere.
Scorn of the corn, exploitative trash.
This is a terrible attempt at following on from Children of the corn II, it is so slow for the first 75 minutes, cramming everything into the final 15 minutes. The concept was believable in backwater USA, but to believe that a whole school of urban kids will dress in Amish-like clothing and follow a kid half their age is too far out there to be taken seriously. Not a good film, I won't be watching this one again.
The Entity (1982)
A good movie adaptation of a true story?
This is a good horror movie, you begin to really feel for Barbara Hershey, as all around her are either running for the hills, or trying to use her for their own gain. The film is full of tension, and you really dislike some of the characters, which I guess means that the acting is good. If this is truly based on a true story, then you have to feel really sory for the victim. Without knowing the history, I am guessing that this is a good adaptation. Certainly a good horror movie its own right anyway. Recommended
Urban Legend (1998)
A '90s B-Movie, not one to watch.
This movie spoofs just about every other horror film you have seen, unfortunately, it tries to take itself seriously in the process. What transpires is really a classic example of a 90s B-Movie. I shouldn't bother watching this one, you've seen it all before.
Nominated for best Action Movie - Ronin
Action from start to finish. DeNiro steals the show, in this movie that could have been written for him. His co-stars support him beautifully though, with Reno at his wonderfully impassive best, and McElhone as the sulky Deirdre. I believe that this movie has one of the longest car chases in movie history (Blues Brothers excepted), although I couldn't help thinking I'd seen a similar backdrop to a car chase in one of the pink panther movies. If you like action, you'll love Ronin, in fact if you like a good movie, then watch Ronin anyway as it is creditable in all areas.
A sequel that outshines its predecessor.
This is one of the few sequels that is better than the original. The pace seems faster, and the budget seems to have been higher. If you liked the first Children of the Corn, then this is also recommended.
Children of the Corn (1984)
Low budget entertaining tosh.
Like most Stephen King novels, this has been translated very badly to the screen. It comes across as a low-budget B-movie. The plot is unlikely, the acting is poor and the special effects are questionable. Having said all that, I still found it entertaining, and I would watch it again.
