revenge of the radioactive reporter
revenge of the radioactive reporter

3.0 out of 5 stars Some of the worst lines in movie history but surprisingly enjoyable to a point., 26 Aug. 2015
You almost feel you've reached the very outskirts of Amazon whilst trying to review a movie that has no reviews and still after 25 years has never made it on DVD or Blu ray. What's more it is sold out in VHS and in all probability will never return to Amazon. Finally will anyone even see this review?

Onto the movie- by the title you can guess that this low budget indeed, and Z grade. The acting is pretty awful, but there are quite a few sparks of comedy. Some of it is self parody which works well given that you'll be laughing at most of the lines delivered.

Story in short is about a reporter who has done research into a local chemical plant and finds out that they are not above board and are causing serious illnesses. But when he confronts them, they kill him in toxic waste, or at least they think they have. The rest of the film is about the sleazy workers chasing down his fiancee who knows their secret. And of course toxie man is out for revenge.

There are a few gory scenes though nothing to brutal, which is a shame, perhaps if Troma had handled this one it could have been very bloody. However of course they had their own franchise of this sort in the highly succesful Toxic Avenger movies.

The soundrack is surprisingly good and you can see that the makers of this movie have tried to punch above their weight with a very low budget. All in all not a bad movie, and worth seeking out if you love 80s cheese.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's all on you tube for free, 26 Aug. 2015
Every bit of footage is available on you tube for free. The quality is pretty bad and this has not been authorized by the band. You wish that someone who put this together was a fan, if so at least there would be a little love here. As it turns out this is just soulless avoid and go to you tube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terminus, cannibals, Rick shaves, characters die, Gabriel goes loopy and zombies rule!, 25 Aug. 2015
Season 5 had a lot to live up to after the excellent previous seasons. But this one is the best season yet. Full of character development, fast plot lines and gore and violence to the max. The surviving team are likable and we all seem to know them so well. The writers need to be applauded for this.

The season starts off in spectacular style with instant classic NO SANCUTUARY. After spending such a long time getting to Terminus, the whole thing is over in an episode. Cannibalism, ultra gore, violence and Carol acting like Arnie and blowing everything up. What makes this episode stick is how we can be blown away by the violence and action and still end up having a lump in the throat at the end, brilliant!

The next two episodes are solid enough but nothing great as they could have been. Then comes SLABTOWN, it's marmite for fans, and I loved the episode. Yes the characters were a little hollow, but we got a bunch of new ones, great city location and Beth was back, it was done well and was a welcome change to trees and shubery.

SELF HELP was the first major dip in the season but CONSUMED picked things back up again. CROSSED though was by far the worst episode of Season 5.

The second half of the season was just wonderful and the most consistant run of great episodes in Walking Dead history. The hospital had to be dealt with, the team were at a loss, they lost a few members along the way, and then were rescued and found Alexandria, and a whole new set of rules was ready to take place.

SPEND was just a jaw dropping episode and it was interesting to see how primal and instinctive the team had become when they suddenly had something of a normal life back again.

Fans that like gore and zombies being killed will not be disappointed, this is not for the weak hearted, For me Season 5 beats 4 and 3. Season 1 is a classic but with just 6 episodes it was always hard to compare with a 16 episode season. Quite simply brilliant, who can wait for me?

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for adults poor for kids, 21 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Minions [DVD] (DVD)
AARGHHHH PEOPLE!!!! How can it be that technically inferior quality, I'm talking Tom and Jerry from the 1930s and Laurel and Hardy can make kids roll over with laughter but today's animation has them staring blankly at a screen?

Yes Minions is a good movie, yes there are a few laughs, though not nearly enough. But this film is for teenagers and adults not children. There are referenes to the 1960s, kids won't understand, a barnstorming soundtrack for us adults, but what about the kids? What about slapstick humour?

The final straw was the bizare references to the horror movie The Shining???? Leave it alone. Not one kid laughed through out the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic fun but doesn't always hit the mark, 11 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Monkey Business [DVD] [1952] (DVD)
Let's be honest Monkey Business is about 'normal' people taking acid and the monkey serum is just one big excuse to get past the censors. A great cast that includes the absolute star dust of Hollywood in Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe.

Highlight is when Grant drug induced takes Monroe out for the afternoon with one hair raising event after the other. Some good character action follows and the film is funny in parts. But it still drags a little and too many jokes hit the wall. Nice sets and stardust and Howard Hawks directing saves the day, but all involved have done much better with other movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the trash masterpiece some say it is., 7 Aug. 2015
The Deadly Spawn is a pretty popular low budget horror movie, but for the most part it just isn't bang on the 80s cheese. Location, location, location they say, and this movie is filmed in one house. Everything just feels off about doing this.

The acting is terrible and the script flat as for the monsters it's fun and there are a few gory moments, but it could have been way better. In truth had this movie been made by say Jim Wynorski or Fred Dekker and made a few years later we could have been looking at another underrated trash classic, but the Deadly Spawn falls short of this on numerous reasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sugar coated old fashioned movie, but it works just fine., 3 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Indiscreet [DVD] (DVD)
Wonderful feel good movie from the latter part of Cary Grant's illustrous career. Paired here with Ingrid Bergman- she falls in love with him, but Grant is married and can't get a divorce. Does everything seem like it is?

Arguably a better first half than the second, though filled with sugarcoated moments, it's an old fashioned romance, but the dialogue keeps things going very nicely. Well shot and comedic in parts, especially the brilliant climax.

A very well done movie, with lovely costumes and just woo at Grant's dancing scene.

1.0 out of 5 stars Remember when Chucky used to be scary?, 14 July 2015
This review is from: Bride of Chucky [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
Quite possibly the worst Child's Play in the franchise as Chucky becomes nothing but a de sensitized parody of himself. More a comedy than a horror, here Chucky finds an old flame or she finds him and together they go out on a killing rampage. The problem is there isn't much killings anyway and the whole movie feels like a Natural Born Killers for the doll age.

Ronny Yu directs and attempts to destory a franchise, he had a good go at the Friday13/Elm Street cross over a few years after this one. There are quite a few nods to horror icons of yesteryear but this is a desperate attempt at full on comedy with a boring story and useless characters. You're left with an empty feeling afterwards and thoughts of remembering when Chucky actually used to be scary. Dreadful from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutallly hyper violence at its best., 14 July 2015
This review is from: Dredd [DVD] (DVD)
In 90 odd mintues Dredd makes a mockery of every end of the world superhero flick from the past 20 years. Ultra violent with no likable characters this movie harks back to the days of the original Robocop with its brutal unrelenting atmosphere. It's a movie that does justice to the 2000 AD character and just gets better and better as it goes on. The only minor quibble is that CGI is used for the head shots which don't always come off as they should be doing so in this age. But there's character developement, a story, ruthless characters and down and dirty violence the way it used to be for adults craving a world where PG and 12A didn't co exist with films that they wanted to watch and enjoy. True foreign cinema has not let up with the likes of THE RAID movies, but this is a rare treat from American cinema.

2.0 out of 5 stars No tension sinks this one to a lower level., 13 July 2015
This review is from: Elevator [DVD] (DVD)
Elevator is a great premise- a bunch of business heads stuck in an elevator, but one of them is there to get revenge on the director of the company and has a bomb that is abouyt to go off. Escape seems futile. The problem with Elevator is that it creates very little tension where it should be in abundence. Considering we have a fairly new cast and no stars here- the acting is good- but there's just no punchline. Most of the characters are obnoxious- there's a little girl trapped in there but shes such a spolit brat we care little for her. Revelations about each character come out that are too over the top and the script is weak. The cover claims that this is what Devil wanted to be. Whilst Devil is hardly a great movie it was far better than this one. Not a terrible effort by any means, but easily forgetable.
