Crop And Save
enjoyable adventure with sword swinging in abundance
This movie probably deserves a seven or seven and a half but I scored it an eight due to all the hate on here. Its a solid sword and sandal type adventure with tons of action, nice scenery and enough plot to keep things moving along at a quick pace. I was never bored, the lead actor was good, reminded a bit of a young Clint Eastwood.
I really don't get the hate on here, its a solid film. Its not Shakespeare but lets be real, Hamlet is boring as heck. So what if Nick Cage is in this, hes a solid actor so what's the beef? The biggest negative I saw was a few editing snafus but that really didn't hurt much. I had fun and to be honest, the plot was really straight out of Shane, etc. Tried and true stuff. The girls were cute and I loved the costumes and sets. Don't believe the hate, if you like action and adventure you will most likely have fun a good deal of value here...I do not lie pilgrims. As for the dimwits calling this a bad movie, there are lots and lots of bad movies out there, this is not one of them unless you are LOOKING to call it a bad movie.
Breaker! Breaker! (1977)
I love this movie
Chuck Norris comes to town looking for his brother who has been brutalized by a bunch of crooked redneck jerks. Chuck systematically beats the freaking hello out of each and every one of them. What's not to like, this stuff is Dope man... You will love each and every ash kicking moment and there are lots of them. Chuck even gets in a bit of wise cracking along the way. I almost felt sorry for the bad guys...naw I didn't. This flick thrilled me, chilled me, and never bored me one iota. This is Chuck at his best and ranks right up there with Lone Wolf McQuade and Forced Vengeance as one of the very best butt kicking shows out there in movie land. A sure fire can't miss thrill ride right to the very end. Go for it.
American Sniper (2014)
Mao, Hitler, Pol pot, Saddam, Ben Laden, and Stalin hate this movie
yeah I know that liberals are mad cause he killed a bunch of people that represent the most intolerant and conservative religion that ever existed and we all know how liberals love conservative religions...right? I think liberals mostly support terrorist because the terrorist believe gays should be punished by death...right? Anyhow, its a great, great movie and we need a lot more like this instead of the tired old communism is a better way and superhero idiocy Hollywood churns out. btw, could we get one of our liberal pals to remind the prez that zero Americans participated in the crusades. Another reason I think liberals hate this is the idea that eastern women should have rights and not be sold to the highest bidder...right? Obama took our heros like Kyle out of there and now look at the poop hole it has become...hooray for liberals!!!!!
Orazi e Curiazi (1961)
not bad...Alan Ladd could still act
I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Yeah Alan Ladd wasn't quite the handsome dashing hero of a few years earlier but I would imagine commanders in the Roman Legions back then weren't exactly Justin Beiber lookalikes so he fits the role pretty well. The plot has some interesting twists and the women were beautiful. The action scenes were better than average for an Italian epic...I've seen much worse. To be honest, these sword and sandal affairs are growing on me. They have a special charm all their own that's hard to define so I won't try. My advice, gird your loins, adjust your breastplate, and saddle up pardners for a good old Italian style western with a couple of familiar American faces thrown in for good measure!!! And remember, a sword is always loaded so be careful out there in weird movie land.
I really enjoyed it, the best of the three IMO
I really liked it. I was not a huge fan of the first two movies, they were OK, nothing great. This was the best of the three for me. I loved the visuals, especially the scenes in the mountains. I could literally feel the cold and the Yeti were a very nice extra. It was very fast paced and the new characters were cool. Yes, Rachel was missed but but the new lady held her own. I loved the idea of the two undead armies battling it out. The one armed Mummy was the coolest, his part should have been expanded a little, he rocked. Im not sure what the other reviewers didn't see in this flick. So what if it wasn't set in Egypt...why fault the producers for trying to keep it fresh? If they make another I would like it to be set in the Byzantine empire...nothing is ever done about that tremendous civilization, its as if it didn't exist for over a thousand years?? Anyhow, I enjoyed this movie...its far better than any of that goofy Indiana Jones hogwash...I have never made it through any of those movies, the just aren't fun. This is a good one!
Surfer, Dude (2008)
nice, understated, powerful in its own way
Gotta say I really liked it. A man trying to live his life on his own terms and holding strong to his unique kind of integrity. I guess our hero is kinda the last hippie. His life is totally opposite the lives of most of us. He surfs, and never works. Thing is, he is so cool that others find ways to make money off his adventures and his athletic prowess. He doesn't care, he just wants to surf. Finally the forces of commercialism and responsibility begin to close in. Ironically, this occurs at a time when the ocean stops making waves. Surfer Dudes world begins to crash down but he refuses to surrender.
This film reminded me of the Camus novel called the Stranger. If one refuses to conform or simply doesn't get conformity...prepare for a lot of love/hate relationships with others. Society can take only so much individual freedom before it eats its own.
This isn't a great movie but its a very good one for people who sometimes wonder wtf its all about anyhow. This is more like a good novel than a Hollywood movie. Twelve year olds and people with that mentality have no chance of understanding or enjoying.
The Lost Tribe (2009)
OK, I liked it
For a movie made for a million bucks, it definitely delivers. It is a tiny bit slow paced but that seems to work for it. Considering the budget its very well produced and has several very lovely young ladies in prominent roles. Its very violent and often gross but that is to be expected in what is basically a horror movie. The plot is a bit thin and the liberal philosophy is lame but the story does make sense and is fairly easy to follow for all that. Most of the cast are unknowns but they have some acting ability and I know I'm not alone in being a sucker for mysterious island adventures. Ah yes, I recall fondly The Most Dangerous Game and many others.
Ignore the low rating you see here, if you like lower budget flicks that get a lot of mileage out of their investment...you will probably dig this one, a good looking film with lots of action and suspense.
2012: Ice Age (2011)
People get PAID to slam Asylum on here!!!
Yah, its pathetic, sad, but true. The big studios are so scared of Asylum and other companies like them that they will stoop to any low to badmouth the new competition. Asylum actually makes very entertaining movies and they do it sensibly. I have recently become a fan because after watching a few they got me hooked. They do produce some stinkers too, but compared to all of that superhero Krapola the bigs are shoveling out they still manage to shine.
Im not a fan of disaster movies but this one is one of the best I have seen. The cast is competent and the special effects are actually very OUTSTANDING thank you very much. Most Asylum films are fun, escapist yes, but fun. The leading man (sorry, can't spell that name) was very good in a everyman hero type way. He did what he had to do and pretty much kept his family together and safe. When he could he helped others too. The script was fine and the story was easy to follow and relate to. (especially if you have ever been stuck in traffic during a winter storm!) Check this one out and check out other stuff by Asylum. Its enjoyable stuff and ain't that what we look for in a film?
Glass Trap (2005)
Oh man, this movie rules!!!!
You got to see it to believe it. What a cool flick this is. I got a huge kick out of it. Its damned funny...The ants are freaking hilarious and Stella Stevens is a hoot. Find a copy of this NOW...you will never regret it man. Some of the jokes are so bad you will laugh even louder than if they were good. Especially the one about the duck. This is what all movie makers should aim for...genius without logic. No one normal would think of making this movie. Its genius I tell you. Run, don't walk and seek out this chalice of cinema wonderfulness immediately. It will cure you of many ills, including bad breath.
OK, after a second viewing, I recommend this even more. C Thomas HOwell is an acting marvel. His portrayal of a janitor is dead on. Hope he works his way up to master janitor someday!!!
The Terminators (2009)
Mindless, gore and FUN!!
Terminators run around killing, decapitating, killing, being bad etc etc. Its all in fun Y'all. Sorta like a Zombie movie in reverse!!! Huge body count. Everyone gets offed by the bad Terminators. Its fun, fun, fun!!! Forget plot, forget sex scenes, forget what it was you forgot. Just sit back and enjoy the mayhem. Laugh, grunt, scratch...whatever you do at the movies. Just embrace it...you will be happy you did. Its better than wrestling, its better than beer, its better than getting a tattoo. It was made for you and you and you. You know who you are. Fire up one and have the time of your life as the Terminators do what you wish you could...you know you want it.
