    My Way: The Life and Legacy of Pat Patterson

    ★★★★

    055: Despite their weekly “product” still mostly being hot garbage, WWE still manages to knock things out of the park -admittedly with a bit of historic revision in some- when it comes to documentary profiles. This one on the life of legendary French Canadian wrestler Patterson who went from an amazingly successful in ring career to an even more legendary run in office being the number two person behind Vince McMahon himself in creative is a home run. It’s a…

  • Born to Kill

    Born to Kill

    ★★★★

    038: Rewatched this one via NOIR ALLEY. Newly divorced Claire Trevor catches the eye of psychopath Lawrence Tierney in this perverted noir that holds up just fine. One of the more psycho-sexually explicit and violent noirs of the era, with Tierney almost being the Femme Fatale trope/role. Well worth checking out.

  • Martial Law II: Undercover

    Martial Law II: Undercover

    ★★★

    094: Sequel to the DTV hit gets an upgrade all around. Jeff Wincott replaces McQueen in the lead and brings some martial arts chops despite coming off as Brett “The Hitman” Hart with less personality. Billy Drago gets to be a bit of a heavy as a dirty police chief mixed up with some pony-tailed yuppy-scum gangsters who Wincott is after. It looks great, the fights are great but the production team behind it didn’t learn their lesson from the…

  • Ulzana's Raid

    Ulzana's Raid

    ★★★★

    093: Burt Lancaster stars as a grizzled tracker who helps a young Captain and his cavalry unit as they track down the titled Ulzana who has skipped out on the reservation and starting a raid on the homesteaders in the area. Starts off feeling pretty old fashioned with it’s “Rah Rah” styled score but once the Ulzana’s raid starts -a compact guerilla affair with maybe 10 men as opposed to the sweeping raids typical of westerns- the film explodes and…

  • Cannibal Holocaust

    Cannibal Holocaust

    ★★★★½

    It feels wrong to call this a classic, but it really is. It’s offensive, horrific, gross, and leaves you feeling almost despondent. Which means it absolutely succeeds in it’s goal in a way few films ever have. This was my 4th time watching it and it hasn’t lost any of it’s impact. It’s a real shame that they had to have animal cruelty in it. I can’t imagine the movie will ever have a better presentation than what GRINDHOUSE RELEASING has done with this blu-ray. If you’re a fan, it’s a must own.

  • Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson

    Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson

    ★★★★

    Adamson, the director of bad movies that are actually bad but became a exploitation drive-in legend regardless gets the documentary treatment and I can’t imagine any filmmaker of his genre getting a better one. It’s a remarkable journey, this one follows Al’s hustle through Hollywood to a legit ghastly end. What’s great is it’s packed with interviews of contemporaries where most of these docs are packed with experts of dubious experience. So you get personal stories as well as historical…
