Lately, I have been addicted to buying cheap ($2-$8) movies. I don't watch most of these, they just sit on my shelf & collect dust until someone else borrows them or puts them on at my place. I like to have options.
Here's a rundown of movies I've watched/half-watched over the past month,
I picked this up from HMV for $4, which is an amazing deal when you realize that movie is BRILLIANT. I forgot how awesome Wesley Snipes was as evil bad guy, Simon Phoenix. This is a great, great action movie. Also, Sandra Bullock was pretty sexy in it. Death Warrant
One of my all-time favorite Van Damme flicks. Jean Claude plays Lois Burke, a special detective brought in from Montreal, to go undercover as a prisoner to find out why prisoners are being killed mysteriously. This movie is ridiculously good. I give it a GREAT.
Up I watched a bootleg version of this, which I am told is a big 'no no'. I thought this looked pretty good. I heard that this was very sad, but I did not find it sad at all. I found this movie to be fun & adventurous. Also, I missed the beginning where his wife dies, which is probably the sad part. Good movie. GREAT Year One
I am a Jack Black fan. I am a Michael Cera fan. I am not a Year One fan. This movie was so goddamn LAME. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
I got the 2 pack that comes with both movies & the animated series. I won't be watching the animated series but Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is on deck. Pet Detective is not nearly as funny as it was when I was 13 but it still holds up. PRETTYGOOD. Tango & Cash
Lt. Raymond Tango (Stallone) & Lt. Gabriel Cash (Russell) are the top cops in the city & after they are framed by Jack Palance they must clear there names. This movie is wonderful. I love every second of it, especially the cheesy one-liners coming from both Tango & Cash. Also, Teri Hatcher (pre Lois & Clark, pre Seinfeld) looks super hot in it as Stallone's sister, Katherine 'Kiki' Tango. BRILLIANT
Hard To Kill
Mason Storm wakes up from a 7 year coma to find his wife & child murdered. One montage later & he's back in top shape & out for revenge. So lame that it is BRILLIANT.
This was like a car wreck, 1 minute in & I wanted to turn it off......but I couldn't. I watched it all. Bio-Dome is so ridiculous that it was PRETTYGOOD. I don't recommend anyone else watch it, but I'm kinda glad I did.
When I was a kid I thought Keanu Reeves was awesome, I didn't realize that he is a horrible, unbelievable actor. Still, this movie was GREAT.
I love this movie. It's Shyamalan's best film. All 4 main characters are incredible actors. I love the pacing, & the shots. This movie makes me sad & then scares the hell out of me, every time. That scene where Merrel is watching tv & they show that alien jump out of the bushes at the kids birthday party in Brazil......holy shit. Keep in mind, I'm easily scared by movies. BRILLIANT.
