"Mad Max Plays Cosmic Rollerball!"
This 1986 sci-fi film stars Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Lucas Haas, Claude Brooks, Peter DeLuise, James Le Gros, Adrian Pasdar and Richard Jordan. This takes place in the post-apocalyptic future where we meet a group of orphan friends, Jason (Patric), Terra (Gertz), Daniel (Haas), Rabbit (Brooks), Tug (DeLuise) and Metron (Le Gros). They reside at an orphan compound ran by the military where water is very limited. Soon, they find a mystical orb from space that can heal and bring rain. The late, Jordan (The Secret of My Success) plays corrupt leader, Grock and Pasdar (Top Gun, Near Dark) plays orphan, Darstar. Sarah Douglas (Superman II), Terrence Mann (Critters) and the late, Charles Durning (Tootsie) also appear. This basically combines "Mad Max" and "Rollerball" plus Jordan's character resembles Bison from "Street Fighter." The film could've been better, but it does have some neat effects, Patric and Gertz had good chemistry and reunited a year later in "The Lost Boys." I'd give this a try at least once.
Silent Night (2012)
"Here Comes Santa Claus!"
Malcolm McDowell and Jaime King star in this 2012 horror film. This takes place on Christmas Eve in Wisconsin town, Cryer where a brutal killer dressed as Santa Claus lurks. McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Halloween) plays Sheriff Cooper who intends to find him with help from one of his deputies, Aubrey Bradimore (King), a recent widow who tries to get through the holidays. Donal Logue (Blade, Gotham) also appears as Santa Jim. This sort of resembles and pays tribute to other holiday horror/slasher flicks like "Silent Night, Deadly Night," "Christmas Evil" and "Black Christmas." It also feels a bit like a Rob Zombie film, McDowell and King are good in it and there's gruesome deaths/killings. I'd give this a view if you're into the genre.
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
"OK Spy Flick!"
Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine star in this 2014 action film based on the comic book, "The Secret Service." This takes place in England where we meet spy, Harry (Firth) who recruits young man, Eggsy (Egerton) to be in a top secret organization, "Kingsman" since his late, father saved his life. Eggsy gets off to a rough start, but eventually follows in Harry's footsteps. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) plays corrupt, computer whiz, Valentine, Caine (Batman Begins) plays Arthur, the head of Kingsman and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) also appears briefly as Professor Arnold. This is an OK flick with a decent cast paying tribute/poking fun of spy genre films and shows (mainly James Bond). It also has aspects of "Kill Bill" and "Men in Black" thrown in. Give this a try.
Doctor Strange (2016)
"Good Comic Book Film!"
Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelson and Tilda Swinton star in this 2016 action film based on the Marvel Comics. Cumberbatch (Black Mass) plays the title role of Dr. Stephen Strange, a New York, neurosurgeon who gets into a car accident causing him nerve damage in both his hands. Soon, he heads to Tibet where he heals and learns from sorceress, The Ancient One (Swinton) about the mystical arts and tries to save the world from evil. McAdams (Wedding Crashers) plays Christine Palmer, Strange's ex-girlfriend/lover who is also a surgeon, Mikkelson (Casino Royale) plays evil sorcerer, Kaecilius and creator, Stan Lee makes a brief and amusing cameo as usual. This is a good comic book film, parts of it remind me of the "Star Wars" films and "Batman Begins," Cumberbatch is great in it, the rest of the cast is good as well and the visual/special effects are amazing. I recommend this.
"Good 80's Cop/Action Thriller!"
Sylvester Stallone, Billy Dee Williams and Rutger Hauer star in this 1981 action thriller. This mainly takes place in New York and Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) plays cop, DaSilva who is determined to stop international terrorist, Wulfgar (Hauer) who makes his work of bombing and killing known through the media. Williams (The Empire Strikes Back) plays DaSilva's partner, Fox who gets slightly injured while in pursuit. Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman) and the late, Joe Spinell (Rocky, Maniac) also appear. This is a good 80's cop/action thriller following in the footsteps of "Dirty Harry," Stallone is great as usual as well as Hauer who always plays a great villain. I recommend this.
"Not Bad Supernatural Remake!"
Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris star in this 2015 horror remake of Tobe Hooper's 1982 film. Rockwell (Cowboys & Aliens) plays Eric Bowen, an out-of-work dad who moves to the suburbs with his wife, Amy (DeWitt) and their 3 kids, Madison (Kennedi Clements), Kendra (Saxon Sharbino) and Griffin (Kyle Catlett). Soon, they're haunted by supernatural forces in their new house due to it being built on burial ground and Madison mysteriously disappears. Harris (Mr. Deeds) plays paranormal expert, Carrigan Burke) who helps them try to get Madison back. This isn't bad, I like how it has bits from the original 3 films and the film shares some creepy moments with "The Grudge" and Paranormal Activity." I'd give this a chance if you're into horror or the supernatural.
Salem's Lot (1979)
"Great Vampire/Horror Flick!"
David Soul, James Mason, Bonnie Bedelia, Lance Kerwin and Reggie Nalder star in Tobe Hooper's 1979 horror film based on Stephen King's novel. Soul (Starsky & Hutch) plays Ben Mears, a novelist who returns to his hometown, Salem's Lot, Maine to write about a mysterious, old house that may be haunted. He discovers that an evil presence inhabits the house turning the town's residents into vampires one by one. Mason (Heaven Can Wait) plays antique dealer, Richard Straker, Bedelia (Die Hard) plays teacher and Ben's love interest, Susan Norton, Kerwin plays creative, young boy, Mark Petrie and Nalder plays Straker's business partner and vampire, Kurt Barlow. Geoffrey Lewis (Tango & Cash) and George Dzundza (Basic Instinct) also appear. This is a great vampire/horror flick featuring a good cast, great score & creepy make-up effects. I recommend this.
Trick or Treat (1986)
"Good Rock 'n' Roll 80's Horror!"
This 1986 horror film stars Marc Price, Tony Fields, Lisa Orgolini, Doug Savant and Glen Morgan. This tells about teenage kid, Eddie aka Ragman (Price) who is a Rock 'n' Roll fanatic. He wants to be like his idol, Sammi Curr (Fields) who suddenly dies in a tragic fire. Soon, Eddie gets Sammi's rare, demo record and plays it which unleashes Sammi's dark, electric spirit. Orgolini plays Eddie's love interest, Leslie, Morgan plays his nerdy pal, Roger, Savant plays Tim, a bully and Rock legends, Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath) and Gene Simmons (Kiss) also appear. This is a good 80's horror flick and the late, Fields was great in it. I recommend this.
Sorority Row (2009)
"Could've Been Better!"
This 2009 horror remake of the 1983 film, "The House on Sorority Row" stars Briana Evigan, Rumer Willis, Jamie Chung, Leah Pipes, Audrina Patridge, Margo Harshman and Carrie Fisher. The girls of sorority, Theta Pi decide to play a prank on their sister, Megan (Patridge) and her boyfriend. It backfires when Megan is accidentally killed and the girls decide to dispose the body and keep it a secret. Their secret catches up with them when they're stalked by a killer. Evigan plays Cassidey, Willis plays Ellie, Chung plays Claire, Pipes plays Jessica, Harshman plays Chugs and Fisher (Star Wars) plays housemother, Mrs. Crenshaw. This is a bit similar to "I Know What You Did Last Summer." The cast isn't bad and there's a couple good deaths/kills, but it could've been better. I'd still view this at least once if you're into slashers.
Chopping Mall (1986)
"Pretty Good 80's Technological Terror Flick!"
This 1986 sci-fi/horror film stars Kelli Maroney, Tony O'Dell, Russell Todd, Karrie Emerson, Barbara Crampton, Nick Segal, John Terlesky and Suzee Slater. This features a group of friends, Alison (Maroney), Ferdy (O'Dell), Rick (Todd), Linda (Emerson), Suzie (Crampton), Greg (Segal), Mike (Terlesky) and Leslie (Slater) who decide to spend the night in a shopping mall after hours. Soon, they become terrorized by 3 security robots that become deadly after lightning strikes the computer system. Dick Miller, Mary Woronov and Paul Bartel also make appearances. This is a pretty good 80's flick that combines aspects of "The Terminator" and "Dawn of the Dead." I recommend this.
