Gun Woman [DVD]

3.0 out of 5 stars JAPANESE GORE, 22 July 2014
This review is from: Gun Woman [DVD] (DVD)
A hitman and his driver retell a story about "Gun Woman." A rich sick individual (Noriaki Kamata), who would rape and kill women (not necessarily in that order) kills the wife of a doctor and cripples the doctor (Kairi Narita). In order to obtain revenge, the doctor buys and trains a meth head to do his killing. That is Asami , the title character.

The film has slightly more depth and a minor end twist, but that is basically the film. Toss in some blood, killing, and rape and you have a mediocre Japanese grindhouse.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, rape, full frontal nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST MAN WITH A PLAN, 22 July 2014
This review is from: Think Like A Man Too [DVD] (DVD)
A couple is getting married in Vegas while Cedric (Kevin Hart) is in charge of the party arrangements. The guys and girls have a contest as to who will have the best story to tell on their bachelor/bachelorette night. Things don't go well and the biggest winner was the Allstate man. The Zeke bit of him having been there before and knowing all the women didn't work well and I found myself growing bored with Kevin Hart pretending to be funny jumping on beds and dancing in his underwear. (Yawn!)

The sequel has little to do with the title and was a fairly lame follow up to original with forced humor you see coming for miles.

3.0 out of 5 stars YOU'RE HAVING MY BABY,, 22 July 2014
The film opens with Catherine (Amy Scott) running out of a house having some sort of issue. Four years later she emerges as Kate, a college whatever in love with author/professor Jacob Kelly (Cameron Mathison) and exhibits stalker tendencies. We discover Jacob has a wife Allison (Annie Wersching) whose collection of frozen eggs has dwindled down to one. Kate forces her way into the job of surrogate by eliminating the competition.

Yes, this is another film where young girl wants to replace the wife so she can be with her husband. We have seen so many of these things, we groan over the idea they would make another one, especially with the made for TV quality this one has. However, since Kate is carrying the child, they really don't want to hurt her. As the plot turns to Misery we discover Kate is also a victim herself. In fact I had to laugh because her personal story was so much more interesting than the one they produced.

Not the worse thing at Redbox. Might work as one of their free rentals. 2 1/2 stars

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

2.0 out of 5 stars JUST TRY TO READ THE COMPUTER'S MIND, 22 July 2014
At the "Kant School for Gifted Students" (I am sure pun intended) a former instructor is using chemicals/drugs to gather souls of students. He has done the experiment 20 years ago, and now has returned with a small group of homeless followers, of which one guy looks similar to the more popular Pinhead.

The film is designed to be campy and an 80's style slasher, but doesn't accomplish much. The film is uneven with no character introduction of build up. Characters pop in and out at random with little of the film making sense. While there are some good individual scenes, when they add up the sum becomes less than the individual scenes.

Parental Guide: Nudity

1.0 out of 5 stars TO LIVE IS TO DIE., 21 July 2014
The movie pretends to be some kind of restored recovered film which accounts for the poor quality. It follows the original Dracula story with limited action. The film is mostly dialogue and could easily adapt for a play. This is a vampire film where you never actually see anyone get bitten. The acting was simply horrible with terrible dialogue. Jonathan Harker would tell a story as a flashback, only to have it interrupted with the present Van Helsing subplot.

If you like a vampire movie where the characters move, this isn't it.

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

1.0 out of 5 stars YOU KILLED ME, 20 July 2014
A woman falls from a balcony and is presumed dead. Her mouth is sewn up to prevent her from casting spells. She is buried in the back yard and no one notices she is missing. 25 years later a couple honeymoons at that resort home only to be annoyed by a ghost.

This is a Thai film that was not interesting. There was an extensive shower scene where Mook (Chutima Every) soaps up her body while being watched. The camera doesn't show any nudity, but does show her soaping up her midriff with a single hair growing from near her belly button.

Not worth viewing.

1.0 out of 5 stars SHE HAS A BIRTHMARK, 20 July 2014
This is apparently a sequel to 666. Donald Lawson (Chad Mathews) is on the fast track to become the head of a corporation, which is rather small on camera. At this point he can become a powerful Anti-Christ. The Vatican has sent a priest (Collin Brock) to investigate things and bring the acting down a notch. Meanwhile ***PLOT SPOILER*** his wife is pregnant with the Christ child because of a birth mark. Did anybody bother to do the math on that one?

The acting was bad, the dialogue a laugh. In fact the bulk of the film was poor dialogue. The promotion scene was agony.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Alma S. Grey, Audrey Fiorini, Marissa Hart, Victoria Lane)

2.0 out of 5 stars YOU DON'T TRUST GOD WHEN IT COMES TO CONCRETE, 20 July 2014
This review is from: Locke [DVD] (DVD)
The entire film takes place in a car. Not just bits and pieces, the whole thing. Locke (Tom Hardy) is driving to London to see the birth of his child by a one night stand. It will take him about 90 minutes, and like a Hemingway novel, it is done in real time. Ivan spends almost the entire trip on the phone and when he is not on the phone he talks to his deceased father.

Ivan decides he needs to do the right thing by being at the birth of his child because of his poor relationship with his father. He imagines everything will be good afterwards. He takes calls from his son watching the football match. He has told his wife what has happened, and she is not dealing with it very well. The woman giving birth has issues as he talks to her and the hospital staff. Ivan is the foreman over a large concrete pour that will happen in his absence. He has to deal with corporate while micro managing a drinking worker through his job over the phone. He does so very cool and collectively, yet things don't go his way.

The film never went anywhere. After 20 minutes or so in the car, I was groaning as I knew this was going to be another one man play. Fans of "Vehicle 19" or "Buried" should love this one too. Oh the drama.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars A STEAMING PILE OF ART, 20 July 2014
The film is a sequel of the 1959 film few of us have seen and fewer remember. James Best of the original 1959 cast returns to the island to shoot a reality TV series. He is reunited with John Schneider and Rick Hurst of the Dukes of Hazzard. There are several references to the popular series.

The shrews are CG and not very good CG. They are inferior to the 1959 dogs in drag which doubled as the shrews. The sound track is done in the style of older films, and includes beach music. It is SYFy/ Asylum quality and is for lovers of bad campy films.

Not for serious viewers,

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. 3 1/2 stars

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist - Live Action [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Simeon Tsolov

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Prequel,, 20 July 2014
The film is over 2 hours of training. The film starts in 1989 with two students fighting and then flashes back to 1987, then also flashes back so we can see the master's life. The main part of the film has to do with mastering "Hado" a force field that one throws generated in their "Ki." There is a dark side to the force field tossing known as "Satsui no hado" which Ken comes by. Apparently Hado is mastered once a person masters slow motion, and fast motion fighting.

There is no real street fighting or assassins, although everyone has a fist.
