HUGO THE HIPPO (1975): The Sultan of Zanzibar kidnaps a herd of hippopotami to protect his harbor from sharks, but after the beasts eat the town's crops, the vizier (voiced by Paul Lynde!) plots hippo genocide. With its dream sequences (multi-eyed potato monoliths) and bizarre color schemes, it's mild psychedelia in the YELLOW SUBMARINE vein, more proof of the overlapping demographic between children and potheads. 4/5.

The Last Exorcism - Theres a sequel so I guess it really wasn't the last one. state of the art "found footage" horror (how did they find/ edit the footage?) (just kidding I know it doesn't matter) that has a decent premise: a preacher has a "Marjoe" type revelation that his lifelong preaching/ exorcism snake handler sort of deal isn't really him and wants to chronicle how full of s**t it is before he leaves it. He accepts a final offer to come and exorcise a demon and brings a film crew to film it, but things don't go according to plan.

The preacher guy is a good combination of likeable but he also shows how he can turn on this other side to him, at one point demonstrating that he can bring up banana bread in a sermon apropos of nothign and get people to say "amen" to banana bread. it my case it wouldn't be hard. I think the writer definitely saw "Marjoe" I think it actually won an Oscar? When he gets to the exorcism house though things get more serious.

If you're an old hand at found footage/ modern horror there is probably plenty to be cynical about but as a movie it's really well done. The casting and acting are great and the plot keeps you guessing. Maybe a few of the ending tie ups were a little head scratching but it's like if you have a better idea for a movie go ahead and make it. Eli Roth and co probably receive a million scripts a day and you can see why they chose this one.

4.5 /5

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" (2016)
Prequel to "A New Hope" tells the tale of the Rebel spy mission to infiltrate the Empire and steal the top-secret plans for the still-under-construction Death Star. Essentially, this a good ol'fashioned shoot em up war movie ala "The Dirty Dozen," in Star Wars wrapping.
This old fanboy was very pleased by this kick-ass addition to the saga. Bring on "The Last Jedi!"

DEAD OR ALIVE (1999): Ryu, a Chinese exile in Japan leads a small gang of criminals who bump heads with the local yakuza and their Chinese Triad allies; as gang wars brew, a detective is closing in on Ryu. This is almost a traditional yakuza flick (in the iconoclastic Seijun Suzuki mold), densely plotted and at times brilliantly shot---but Takashi Miike being who he is, he couldn't resist breaking it up with lapses of good taste (a gross-out scatological prostitute drowning) and sense (I sympathize with anyone who feels cheated by the movie's bizarre final minutes). A cautious 4/5 for those who don't mind extreme violence and sleaze.

DEAD OR ALIVE 2: BIRDS (2000): A hitman realizes that the killer who downed his target just before he could is actually his old childhood friend, and tracks him to their childhood island home where they resume their relationship and become partners. Not a direct sequel to DEAD OR ALIVE---technically, Japan was destroyed at the end of the first installment---but a crime drama starring the same principals (Show Aikawa and Riki Takeuchi) as different characters. This one is less insistent and perverse than usual for Miike, playing almost like an arthouse drama for the first two acts before turning surreal in the final third; not classic Miike, but it has points of interest. 3/5

SLIME CITY - A young artist moves into an upstairs apartment in an old building.  He has a girlfriend who won't sleep with him and a hot looking hooker for a neighbor, and he gets tricked into eating "Brazilian Yogurt" which turns him into a slime-covered monster.  The only way to revert to normal form is to kill someone, but the effect doesn't last long.  Made in the late 80's, this one features some spectacular gore effects and cool stop-motion sequences.  Overall cheesy fun, minus a point for no nudity.  3/5

The Big Bad Swim (2006) - If you like Adrian Lynne movies like Indecent Proposal and appreciate his attention to detail in terms of giving realistic motives to characters and non Lifetimey relationship drama definitely check this out. The hot blonde chick from the movie Teeth is in it.

A bunch of adults who can't swim take an adult ed class run by a depressed guy who is a good teacher though. The women in the class are all in love with him. if he was some guy on the street they probably wouldn't notice him but because he's the center of attention they start to compete (this is my perhaps sexist interpretation). Other people in the class have different reasons for being there. You learn various amounts about each of them they are mostly comic (or rather dram-ic) relief for the main characters namely the two hot girls and the guy. The brunette one is coming off a failed marriage and the blonde is a stripper/ blackjack dealer at Mohegan Sun casino of all places.

I loved it in part probably because so many of the action/ horror movies I watch do this stuff so poorly.

"Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" (2016)

Batman and Robin battle their four biggest foes - the Joker, Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman - in a kitschy-cool animated homage to the classic '60s Batman TV series. Even cooler, three of the show's original cast members (Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar) reprise their roles, and the result is lots of goofy, tongue-in-cheek throwback fun. Viva nostalgia.

"Hatchet" (2007)

A group of Mardi Gras tourists take a "Haunted Swamp Tour" and get stranded in the Louisiana bayou, where they meet Victor Crowley... a legendary backwoods mutant who enjoys ripping people who intrude on "his" territory limb from limb. You can probably figure out the rest.
...an affectionate homage to '80s style slasher flicks ("Crowley" is played by Kane "Jason" Hodder and Robert "Freddy Krueger" England has a brief cameo), "Hatchet" is fast moving, frequently funny and doesn't skimp on the red stuff. Silly splatter fun.

Black Roses (1988)

Famous metal band Black Roses start their first ever tour in a small town. Adults are outraged, the kids are excited. After several meetings the mayor sees no harm in the concert, but charismatic lead singer Damien has them all fooled. Soon enough evil things start to happen with the kids possessed by a demonic force. It's up to a young school teacher to investigate and to stop the Black Roses from gaining world domination.

Cheesy metalploitation with a decent budget. The rubber creature suits are creative and the soundtrack rocks while young adults cast as teens shake their 1980s big hair und mullets to the music. Rewatched for the first time in HD/Blu-ray. It looks and sounds way better than it probably should. 2.5/5 fun/cheese rating 5/5

DEAD OR ALIVE 3: FINAL (2002): A cop in a post-apocalyptic Japan, where homosexuality is enforced via the use of drugs, hunts a replicant who has taken up with a group of rebels. None of the DEAD OR ALIVE movies plots are related; this one is a shot-on-video tribute to BLADE RUNNER which seems almost unfinished (the Arrow video disc contains a disclaimer about burnt-in Chinese subtitled copy being the best source available). Some interesting ideas---in many ways this is the strangest and most philosophical of the series---with a typically nonsensical Miike ending, but it's still the weakest of the series, suffering from its cheap production values. 2.5/5.

High Desert Kill (1989)

Three friends on a hunting trip in the desert meet up with another hunter and soon enough strange things start to happen. All animals appear to be gone and the men are starting to behave unexplainably weird. The situation gets out of hand when they meet a small group of young women camping.

A huge favorite among Horror Aficionados. This made for TV sci-fi horror mixes genuine chills with scenes of unintentional hilarity paired with strong acting and dialogue that seems improvised. If anything High Desert Kill is pretty original and works to some extent. However, I'm not that enthusiastic, I thought it was ok. 3/5

"Danny Says" (2016)
! No longer available Small | Large

A profile of music-industry legend Danny Fields, the promoter/manager who championed off-the-wall acts like the MC5, the Doors, the Velvet Underground, and the Ramones. Lots of cool clips and interesting stories.

"Doctor Strange" (2016)
! No longer available Small | Large

A brilliant but arrogant surgeon, seeking a cure for his seriously-injured hands, discovers his latent talent for magic and sorcery and is recruited into a secret order that defends the world from other-dimensional baddies.
Marvel Comics' Sorcerer Supreme makes his cinematic debut in an action packed flick with way-cool reality-bending special effects ala "Inception."

EVOLUTION (2016): A boy grows up on a strange island where all the adults are female and all the children are males;he is told he is sick and is sent to a hospital where he bonds with one of the nurses. Slow-paced, but brief (80 minutes) and beautiful, particularly the awe-inspiring underwater photography. If you don't go in expecting any answers to the island's mysteries, you may get hooked on the eerie atmosphere. 3.5/5
