The Point of Regret [DVD] [2010]
The Point of Regret [DVD] [2010]
Dvd ~ AJ Nicol
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars FROM BEGINNING TO END, 28 Nov 2014
At age 12, William (Aj Nicol) was convicted of killing his parents and his three year old brother. He escaped the death penalty because of his age. He has offered his story to a "lazy" reporter in exchange for experimental suicide pills from his wife's pharmacy. Ryan (Christopher Hatherall) wants the story, but has to work for it. It stresses his relationship with his wife (Siobhan Bermingham) who believes he is having an affair.

William speaks in cryptic messages as Ryan attempts to piece together the events and most of all, find the location of the three year old, whose body was never found. William has his own issues and frequent prostitutes for arousal, but then he goes and works out in the bathroom.

This is not a horror movie as the back of the DVD suggests. It is a drama about a crime. Nor does it have "Occult images" and I wouldn't call what I saw "graphic violence" either.

The film does contain discussions about suicide. This is a drama that has a slow developing twist that makes it seem like a gentle curve. You see it in the distant and it becomes more apparent as the film goes on. We get to feel what Ryan fells in the film. Kudos Simon Tate.

Guide: F-bomb, sex? Brief hairy male butt nudity.

$2.49 Mountain View Movies

7 Adventures of Sinbad [DVD] [2010] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
7 Adventures of Sinbad [DVD] [2010] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Patrick Muldoon

2.0 out of 5 stars I HAVE THE STONES, 28 Nov 2014
Adrian Sinbad (Patrick Muldoon) owns a shipping company among other things. While attempting to pay a ransom in the Indian Ocean, he get marooned on an island that is not an island and then an island that is an island. This island has an all male utopian society with fully automatic weapons but no football. Sinbad must perform seven poorly defined tasks to save the world and get the island babe (Sarah Desage) even though he is dating a supermodel and has an assistant with obscenely big ears (Kelly O'Leary).

This is an Asylum film, so don't expect too much. The movie was one continuous head scratch, WTF adventure. Nothing made sense, but I imagine this would be the type of film I would have loved in my tween years.

Guide: No swearing. No sex. There are women who appear topless, but have small leaf-like pasties to mimic areolas.

Dvd ~ Trent Haaga
Offered by supermart_usa
Price: £4.96

2.0 out of 5 stars WHAT WILL TIPPY DO NEXT?, 28 Nov 2014
Jessicka (Elske McCain) is apparently a mute and she is kept locked up (at times) by her cousins who sexually abuse her and rent her out. About 15 minutes from the end she goes on a killing rampage.

At no time is she "rabid" as in rabies and the title is clearly a poorly conceived rip-off. It interjects old films into the production which was a plus and a justification to shoot with old inferior grainy film. The Troma name is on it, but their presence is only in the extra features, which also include a fully nude slide show of Elske McCain, if you are into that sort of thing.

The horror/slasher aspect of the film doesn't pick up until the end. It appears a sequel is in the works.

Guide: F-bomb, sex, rape, nudity (Elske McCain, Cisiany Olivar) 2 Stars for the nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars PLUNDER THAT PLANET, 28 Nov 2014
This is Sci-Fi soft core. An alien species operates a reality TV show called "Plunder that Planet." The aim is to steal the sexual energy from that planet. Earth was chosen and an all girl LA band called "Top Heavy" is chosen as the conduit for said energy.

This sci-fi spoof is all about showing off as much breast as possible. Julie Strain actually has a small role in the film, but shows up more in the extra features. Indeed, the extra features exhibit as much nudity as the film including fully nude under water shots which is as much fun as girls on trampolines.

As a sci-fi spoof it ranks well below "Flesh Gordon." 3 stars for the nudity

Dragonquest & Merlin & The War of the Dragons [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Dragonquest & Merlin & The War of the Dragons [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Marc Singer

3.0 out of 5 stars TWO FOR THE TWEENS, 28 Nov 2014
DRAGONQUEST:

The plot is an adaptation of "Star Wars" (Hans and Princess Leia combined into one character), for a middle earth movie complete with bad dragons, a quirky Yoda-like instructor, and a boy who must be taught, who isn't ready. The acting is bad. The dragon, fight scenes, and blood are all CG effects, and not very good ones at that. The movie certainly has some MST, in that it might be funny if stoned, quality to it. But for the normal sober viewer this is a big time avoid.

In the beginning our horn-dog hero is spying on a young topless girl, then later he won't get into a bath tub with a major league babe. The movie has some gem lines: "You may call me...Stranger." or "You must continue along this route until...you find shelter."

No F-bombs, no sex, was that brief teaser nudity in the beginning?

MERLIN & THE WAR OF THE DRAGONS:

For an adult, this is a bad movie. Simon Lloyd-Roberts as the 20 tear old Merlin was absolutely horrible. This is an Asylum low budget film, but even so it could have been far better. Some of the characters spoke in modern English while others adopted a 17th century hybrid. Britain is under attack by Pics (which we don't see enough) Saxons and dragons. Merlin as an apprentice has to save them.

For a ten year old child this movie may be enjoyable. There is no swearing, sex, nudity, or even sex talk. The dragon effects were acceptable for the low budget aspect of Asylum. The sound track could have been better. The opening narration could have been far better. The lead role and acting in general was laughable. The speech given on the horse to rouse the troops was a hoot. While the man is talking the horse seems to have a mind of its own while walking around and making sudden jerks and turns. The magic was just great. A spell is cast, the camera pans away, and then comes back and suddenly something appears!

This is a bad ow budget film, but for some strange unexplained MST reason it held my interest
