^^ for a movie so bad it has surprisingly very little redeeming cheese. Yet I still own this and it's companion piece Oasis of the Zombies.

Yeah it seemed like they spent the whole Zombie Lake budget on the nude swimming scene. When people got shot they played dead like little kids playing cowboys and Indians what a joke that movie is

"Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold" (1987) Richard Chamberlain returns for another likeable "Indiana Jones" wanna-be. This time the adventurer sets off to find his missing brother, who disappeared while searching for a lost African city. Not as slap-sticky as the first film, though the cheap special FX and badguy Henry Silva's Gene Simmons hairdo provide some unintentional comedy.

Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1987) - Quatermain and his cohorts set out to find the lost city of gold - I have a hard time figuring out how it's "lost" considering it seemed only a day's hike from his house. I don't know what it is with this movie - it's as blatantly stupid as any Asylum mockbuster, yet it stars Richard Chamberlain, Sharon Stone and James Earl Jones. And when James Earl Jones is the funniest guy in your movie, you've got problems. It just never establishes the right tone, it's trying to be lighthearted and fun, but it's just...awkward. And all the things a director is supposed to do seemingly didn't get done. Oh well my wife liked it Smile I'll just give it a 2.5/5 though.

Starcrash (1978)- now this is how you do blatant stupidity right Thumbup Caroline Munro as Stella Starbabe (or star-something) teams up with The Hoff to stop an evil goofball from taking over the universe. Comical special effect, Munro's in a sexy space outfit (she really is beautiful) and just wall-to-wall silliness - yay! 4/5.

VISITORS (2013): Shots of faces, followed by shots of buildings, then more faces, and sometimes hands or landscapes, all set to a rich minimalist score by Philip Glass. Now, in theory the human face is infinitely fascinating in its singular expressiveness, and this visual/musical experiment from the director of KOYAANISQUTSI has clear artistic heft; yet, like most people, I was bored. 2.5/5.

"Man of Steel" (2013) Zack "300" Snyder's update of the Superman saga plays up the sci-fi elements of Kal-El's mythos in a big way, eventually devolving into yet another disappointing orgy of nonstop CGI mayhem. Better than 2006's "Superman Returns," but not by much.

HIDE AND SEEK (2013): A wealthy Korean banker investigates the disappearance of his estranged stepbrother from a slum apartment complex; could he have been a serial killer? Although it's burdened by a large number of horror movie cliches and illogical behaviors, this K-horror also has enough mystery and psychological layers to earn a mild recommendation. 3/5.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) - possibly the king of spaghetti westerns? Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach set off in search of gold in the war-torn west. Great characters, awesome atmosphere, and the best music in just about any movie I can think of. Sergio Leone is one of the true geniuses in filmmaking. 5/5.

"Downloaded" (2013) A "VH1 Rock Doc" about the rise and fall of the now infamous file-sharing site Napster and its continuing effects on the music industry and the Internet in general. Directed by Alex ("Bill & Ted") Winter. Interesting stuff, though it runs a bit longer than it really needed to.

Stalker (1979) - Honestly have no idea what this was about or what was going on at any given moment. 3 guys talk philosophical bs in a a black and white world then go to a color world for 2 hours and do the same thing. I never cared what any of it meant and just started to hate the sound of their voices. 1/5

SCANNERS (1981): A scientist trains a young man with deadly psychic powers (a "scanner") to infiltrate a group of fellow telepaths bent on world domination. A well-made, uniquely conceived horror thriller, although it lacks the psychological subtexts that make director David Cronenberg's best work dig under your skin. 3.5/5.

"Justice League: War' (2014) Earth's mightiest superheroes join forces to repel an invasion by Darkseid and his para-demons in the latest installment of the DC Animated Universe series. Loaded with cool cartoon mayhem!

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) - a guy owns some land that the railroad will eventually run across. He's got the only well within 50 miles - and railroads need water for the boilers - so he stands to make quite a bit of money. But some rich guy wants to get that land so he sends his gunslinger (Henry Fonda) to kill him and his entire family. But then the landowner's new wife unexpectedly shows up, and then some mysterious harmonica-playing stranger (Charles Bronson) shows up, and he's got a bone to pick with Fonda. This was very good, decent characters and nice theme music. Interesting plot as well. Don't care much for Bronson's acting in this, it's like he's trying to be some mystical superhero or something; makes it a bit cheesy. 4/5.

I bought this on DVD a while back: it was good but after a while, you wish they'd just move things along a little. Odd trivia: it was co-written by Dario Argento!  TeddyR

Forever Evil (1987)

Marc is the lone survivor of a supernatural massacre claiming friends and family while on a weekend vacation at a cabin. On his way to recovery he teams with a grumpy police detective and a spunky female photographer to find out what really happened. Soon enough they are drawn into a conspiracy of evil forces...
Z-Film that looks like a B-Film. Technically this is way better than expected. Decent production values (they actually filmed inside a real hospital) and neat bloody f/x. Acting can get stiff and lines cheesy at times, but you'll also find the occasional cool delivered dialogue. With a running time of nearly two hours this film feels too "epic" for its own good. I'd say at least 40 minutes of useless footage could've been easily shaved off.
Other than that you get a few eyebrow raising sexist jokes and remarks, plus almost everyone is acting like an arrogant smart ass douche. 3/5 Things that Forever Evil taught me:

~ rich people wear an extra sweater tied around their neck
~ police detectives always wear trench coats
~ bullets won't stop evil no matter how many times you shoot (duh)
