Crop And Save
Arnold's best movie, a classic.
A very well made film that delivers the goods, something that many movies nowdays simply fail to do. The story is classic in it's simplicity, an alien creature comes to earth to kill for sport, the casting is excellent and the direction is tight and never lets the movie wander from the business at hand. Many things make this movie great but one of the main reasons is that the characters don't waste time running around behaving like idiots just waiting to be killed as in many slasher films. Arnold, Jesse Ventura, Carl Weathers and the rest are ready for action at a moments notice and one actually believes that they stand a chance against the Predator. They don't waste time wondering "What is it?", "What does it want?", "This can't be happening" or many other stupid lines said countless times in equally stupid movies. Also, even though there is a woman in the movie, she is not the "love interest" of the hero, nor is she constantly getting in the way in need to be rescued. There are cool special effects, yes, but these are not the focus of the story, instead, for the gripping finale we get a kick ass mano a mano between Dutch (Arnold) and the Predator, who is one of the coolest looking monsters ever! All in all a great movie.
Tale of the Mummy (1998)
One really expects a lot more from the director of Highlander and The Shadow, almost every single horror movie cliche is here, the story is almost as muddled as Mulcahy's own Highlander 2 and it has one of the stupidest endings in movie history. It's really a shame since Christopher Lee is in it (briefly), and the movie does start out sort of well, but then it's all downhill. Special effects range from fair to below average, but that's not the reason this is a bad movie. Maybe it's because Russell Mulcahy wrote it. I understand it was his pet project.
