Collateral (2004) - this was good, the acting by Jamie Fox and Tom Cruise definitely above average. I think because there was no was no romance element/ trashy female lead I just wasn't all that concerned. like the scene when they talk to the guy at the jazz club: it was well written and even interesting, but ultimately I want to see hot girls not learn about jazz. Vivica Fox wasn't that compelling as a star female lawyer

4/5

Dance of the Damned. 1989. Not a bad movie, really. Low, low budget with some good acting. A weary vampire looks for prey that wants to die, his senses lead him to a club where a stripper performs but is contemplating suicide over her hopeless life and the loss of her son, taken by the boy's more successful father. A low budget character study in 2 "people of the night" who both are filled with a certain despair. Worth watching once at least.

The big heat.  1953. Glenn Ford and Lee marvin star in a pretty high level film noir criminals and corrupt police drama. A fairly violent movie and not shy about showing creeps directing violence against women.  Does not have the expected happy ''widowed cop Romances reformed mob girl'' ending.  Written by an actual crime specialist reporter from the days when reporters were real reporters.

"Deadlier Than The Male" (1967)

Jet-setting investigator Hugh Drummond (Richard Johnson) is called into action when several oil-company executives are murdered by a pair of gorgeous female assassins (Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina). 

This is one of the better mid 60s James Bond knock offs, with lots of tongue-in-cheek action and plenty of female eye candy. Seriously fellas, y'all should watch this one just for Elke Sommer, cuz she was st00pid hot back then!!

^^ no, but it's been on my list to check out for a while.

"Tales of Halloween" (2015)
Ten short terror tales set in the same small town on All Hallows' Eve. Highlights include a pack of killer kids, a friendly alien vs. a psycho killer, and man-eating jack o'lanterns. Not every "tale" is a home run but it's mostly fast, gory, funny stuff.

"Firepower" (1979)
Two mercenaries (James Coburn and O.J. Simpson) and a grieving widow (Sophia Loren) plot to take down a mysterious billionaire who''s hidden away in an island fortress. Cars crash, stuff blows up, bullets fly.
Despite its impressive cast and Michael "Death Wish" Winner in the directors' chair, this was a fairly dull caper/adventure flick with a muddled plot that goes in circles till the big shoot'em up in the final act. Skip it.

"Black Panther" (2018)
In Marvel's mega-hit, the heroic Black Panther - aka King T'Challa of the tiny, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda - must defend his throne and his country from a takeover masterminded by the ruthless Killmonger.
Visually, this may be the most impressive Marvel movie yet, even if the story is pretty typical super-hero origin stuff. I wasn't nearly as blown away as some seemed to be but it was a decent one-time watch.

"The Terminators" (2009)
In the near future, humanity's android servants suddenly turn against them. After much shooting, blasting and crashing, a small group of human survivors attempts to penetrate the orbiting space station which houses the androids' electronic "brain" and shut them all down.
The Asylum's sh**-house knockoff of "Terminator: Salvation" is mostly awful, of course, but it's so blatant that eventually it becomes silly entertainment in its own right.

the Prestige - pretty cool movie. magicians try to find out each others secrets and someone wisely made Scarlett Johansson one of the trashy love interests so I didn't get bored.  I assume everyone has seen this but check it out if you haven't. Fincher level ?... maybe
5/5

"And Now For Something Completely Different" (1971)
The Monty Python troupe's first theatrical feature is basically an early "highlight reel," as they re-create some of the best bits from their BBC program, including the "Lumberjack Song," the "Dead Parrot Sketch," and the "Upper-Class Twit Of The Year Competition," with Terry Gilliam's surreal animations in between segments.
"Flying Circus" hadn't aired in the U.S. yet when this film was made, so "Completely Different" served as America's introduction to the Pythons..."and there was much rejoicing!"

the changeling - someone mentioned this recently I think. I remember seeing it at the video store and wow what a misleading box cover it had. It made it look like a fun vhs horror when really it's a depressing, lobotomized Exorcist type 70's horror that could headline a double bill with the rabbit horror movie with no problems. I don't even remember the ending but pretty sure there was no monster as the cover implied. 1/5

there were some passable moments and atmosphere here and there but the disappointment factor pulls it down to the garbage bin.

"Some Girls Do" (1969)
In the sequel to "Deadlier Than The Male," swinging investigator Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond is on the trail of a saboteur plotting to destroy Britain's newest supersonic aircraft. Eventually he arrives at the villain's secret island lair, which is protected by a private army of gorgeous female robots. Yeah, baby, YEAH!
Campier than the previous film but still a fun 007 knock off with some cool action sequences and lots of pretty girls. Shag-a-delic!

"Escape From New York" (1981)
In John Carpenter's dystopian vision of 1997, New York City has been walled off to create a massive federal prison. When Air Force One crashes inside its perimeter and the President is taken hostage, the government calls on snarling, one eyed bad-ass Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) to pull off a rescue. An all around classic B-action movie that is still holding up pretty well all these years later.

"Transmorphers" (2007)
In 2009, a race of giant alien robots took over Earth and drove the remnants of humanity underground. 400 years later, a small group of survivors has come up with a last-ditch plan to take the planet back from the metallic menace.
...in case it's not totally obvious from the title, this is the Asylum's cheese-and-crackers budget knock off of a certain shape-shifting giant robot franchise, though the setting bears a closer resemblance to the bleak "future" world of the "Terminator" saga. The story is actually semi-competent (by Asylum standards at least), but the special effects, as usual, look like one of those cheesy Chinese shoot-em-up video games you find in the "free" section of the Google app store.
I'd still rather watch this than any of the "real" Transformers movies...
