Lake Placid vs. Anaconda [DVD] [2015]
Lake Placid vs. Anaconda [DVD] [2015]
Dvd ~ Corin Nemec
Price: £8.50

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS REALLY STARTING TO GET DISGUSTING, 2 Aug. 2015
The film is what one would expect if you have seen the other features, although that isn't necessary to understand the plot. Robert Englund and Yancy Butler have survived the last feature to be in this one, in fact Yancy Butler was in at least the last two of these. It smartly combines this series with the last Anaconda film where they look for the Blood Orchid for an immortality serum which involves our genetically altered anaconda who needed genes from the croc. Sarah Murdoch (Annabel Wright) is the daughter of Murdoch (John Rhys-Davies) of the Anaconda series.

There is no Lake Placid in this film. It is Black Lake and Clear Lake and it is filmed in Bulgaria so go figure. So we have mega crocs and mega anacondas on the lake as police are out to kill them, a private corporation is out to extract them, and Delta Phi Beta sorority is holding initiations in bikinis, tops optional.

One great sex scene. 3 1/2 stars for the cheese.

The Cutting Room [DVD]

1.0 out of 5 stars I'M IN THE MOOD FOR FOOD, 1 Aug. 2015
This review is from: The Cutting Room [DVD] (DVD)
This is a hand held camera film about students making a DVD extra. They are attempting to locate a missing girl when another one goes missing.
For filler we saw the shoe cam, Mr. Miller's butt, drinking, walking, dark screen, phone interview where we only hear a guy talking, etc. When the film gets exciting we don't see much. We have the ground cam, running cam, and flashlight cam. I liked the odd music for the opening and closing credits. Acting was decent, kudos Lucy-Jane Quinlan. But the film was still bad.

Guide: F-bomb, no sex, or nudity. Some blood, very little gore. Low budget effects. At 75 minutes, it felt like 3 hours.

Snow in Paradise [DVD]
Dvd ~ Frederick Schmidt
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars ISLAM IS PEACE, 1 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Snow in Paradise [DVD] (DVD)
Dave ( Frederick Schmidt) is a delivery man for his Uncle Jimmy's (Martin Askew) drug business. He likes the product (cocaine aka snow), skims, and goes on binges. His best friend is into Islam (the Paradise aspect of the title), and Dave finds peace in their temple as his life spirals out of control.

The film didn't have much plot. I grew weary watching Dave try to stay awake for a week. The Islam aspect was introduced late and didn't integrate well into the film. Also the director liked to skip scenes, like Dave was sitting at a table nice and neat, then he is in the street all messed up.

For me the film was a waste of time.

Guide: F-bomb, brief sex. Dave's butt nudity,

Honeytrap [DVD]
Honeytrap [DVD]
Dvd ~ Lucien Laviscount
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU JUST DON'T DO IT, 1 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Honeytrap [DVD] (DVD)
This is a tragic coming of age story centering around Layla (Jessica Sula) an immigrant from Trinidad living with her estranged mother (Naomi Ryan) in London. Layla hangs out with the wrong crowd and tries to fit in. She falls for Troy (Lucien Laviscount) who does hip-hop videos and allows Layla to be in them. Troy is not the wonderful man she believes and things take a turn for the worse.

I was confused by the brief opening scene which actually comes near the end of the film.

The film was well acted. However, I didn't find viewing a young girl in a downward spiral overly entertaining. This wasn't my cup of tea, but that shouldn't deter people who like well done teen drama/tragedy.

Guide: F-bomb. Sex. No nudity

Badge Of Honour (DVD)
Badge Of Honour (DVD)
Dvd ~ Martin Sheen
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars I CAN ONLY TELL THE TRUTH, 1 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Badge Of Honour (DVD) (DVD)
Mike ( Jesse Bradford) is a good cop and his partner David (Lochlyn Monroe) is not so good. During a drug bust Mike accidentally shoots a 15 year old kid. David devises a cover-up by planting a gun on the kid and claiming he shot first. Jessica (Mena Suvari) is called in to do an internal investigation which lasts the whole picture with not much complexity.

The problem I had with the film is that if the kid shot at the police, there would be a bullet in the wall from that gun. They didn't even check, something that would make this an open and shut case. Instead Jessica must solve the case using hypothetical evidence.

The acting was decent. The script was bad.

Guide F-bombs, sex, nudity (Natasha Henstridge, Lee Tomaschefski, + 1 other brief FF)

Bikini Time Machine [DVD] [US Import]
Bikini Time Machine [DVD] [US Import]
Price: £6.37

3.0 out of 5 stars TIME TRAVEL MAKES ME LOSE MY INHIBITIONS, 31 July 2015
A couple of women need financial help for their diner and in walks a man with a time machine. Time travel includes a castle bedroom, a 60's bedroom, and a sofa. Oh ya, there is a dinosaur thing for a plot spoiler. The cast includes mostly silicon porn stars and a plot that didn't have to be this bad.

3 stars for the sex and nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars CINDY WAS DELICIOUS,, 31 July 2015
Parker Posey stars as a somewhat pretentious guru/ life guide on a reality TV show. In her show she comes into people's lives, burns their belongings, turns them vegan and has them meditate. Crystals, pyramids, and alpha waves are all part of the mix. Al (Jay Harrington) and Millie (Christy Scott Cashman) are free range chicken farmers. When the DMF shuts down Al's job as a lobster fisherman, Millie gets offered a paid opportunity to be on Parker Posey's program, "Cut the Crap."

As it turns out Millie and the farming life lacks drama, so the produces decide to create their own. Unfortunately the show was too predictable for me to feel any drama. Kathryn Erbe plays Millie's sister who wants to be photographed. The humor in the show was showing Posey being a free spirit, running around in a circle with her arms extended saying things like, "If it's white, don't bite" or "there is no place like Om." Millie gets lines like telling her son to "stop choking the chicken." There should have been more of a give and take between the two women. The movie is about how these two opposites become sisters on a higher plane, reach an understanding and influence each others life. Unfortunately the writing and editing didn't deliver this film as well as it should. More of a "chick" flick.

Original title: "Sunny Side Up."

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

The Sin Eater [2003] [DVD]
The Sin Eater [2003] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Heath Ledger
Offered by HarriBella.UK.Ltd
Price: £3.15

4.0 out of 5 stars THE DARK POPE RISES, 31 July 2015
This review is from: The Sin Eater [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
"The Order" and "Sin Eater" are the same film. Heath Ledger played Alex a priest who is an old soul. He is part of an Exorcism order called "Carolingians." He teams up with Thomas (Mark Addy) and Mara (Shannyn Sossamon) to form a "Carolingian Link, Peter, and Julie." They travel to Rome to investigate the death of their mentor only to discover a "sin eater" (Peter Weller) something that was new to me, an interesting entity that exists in the gray area between good and evil.

The film was interesting for those that like those Catholic church secret knowledge films, but it is not on the order of "The Omen" or "The Da Vinci Code."

Guide: F-bomb, sex, near nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars I GOT SHOTGUN, 31 July 2015
This review is from: Hot Pursuit [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) is a "hyper-focus" policewoman. She is allowed to leave the evidence locker to escort a reluctant high value witness (Sofía Vergara) to Dallas. Circumstances causes their plans to go awry and they become on the run, trying to avoid both criminals and cops who want them dead.

The movie is cute, but not an over powering comedy. The jokes get old fast such as Sofia's age and Witherspoon's height. Sofia wear a shirt which says "Butter my Biscuits" for much of the film while Reese boasts a red dress. They shared a kissing scene and a cat fight because that is what the writers had to stoop to to get laughs. The film had potential as Reese got to use a full southern accent, but the script flopped.

Guide: F-bomb in soundtrack. No sex or nudity.

The Sky Crawlers [Blu-ray] [2008]
The Sky Crawlers [Blu-ray] [2008]
Dvd ~ Mamoru Oshii
Price: £6.00

3.0 out of 5 stars WAR IS ETERNAL, 30 July 2015
The film starts out with a young adults as an experienced fighter pilot. We later find out they are "Kildren" and stay young forever. Near the end we find out what Kildren actually are. The film consists of lost of dog fighting and a bunch of pilot interactions. The 3-D graphic were marvelous, unfortunately the characters are 1980's drawn. The two hour film was far too long as it included too many scenes of long pauses where nothing is going on. Did Shatner write this? This is a futuristic world with WWII aircraft. You might want to read the back of the DVD prior to viewing.

Guide: No swearing or nudity. Implied sex.
