Nurse 3D poster
Exploitation movies are easy to recognize: they usually have scantily clad women on the cover together with outrageous taglines. They were a dime a dozen in the late 60’s/early 70’s but eventually didn’t sell much tickets once home video became a thing and, let’s face it, real pornography was available at every video rental store....

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines poster
After the events of Terminator 2 it seemed as if the Terminator story was told with a satisfying ending. The world had been saved from Judgment Day and humanity would live happily ever after, but when it comes to Hollywood, the making of a quick buck is more important than respecting a told story. So...

Terminator 2: Judgment Day poster
Upon its release the original Terminator was a modest success, but once available on home video did it become a really successful movie. In the meantime director James Cameron made the hit movie “Aliens” and the not quite a hit movie “The Abyss”. The groundbreaking computer generated special effects used in the latter, became the...

X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time
This documentary is an interesting companion piece to After Porn Ends, a documentary I viewed recently. While that documentary had more of leveled look at the porn industry with people praising as well as people protesting it, this documentary is has no critical look at the industry. It treads the subject with a light tone and...

In Hell poster
One look at the DVD cover might lead you to think that In Hell is yet another run-of-the-mill DTV action movie starring a past-his-prime action star. The cover features Jean-Claude van Damme looking serious, there’s an exploding building and helicopters are circling over it. Quite the promise, a promise it doesn’t keep: there are no...

The Silencer poster
The Silencer, a little known C-movie from 1992 with a little known cast, director and probably made with about the same budget as the average porn movie. You might wonder how I stumble upon these kinds of movies and in this case it’s simple. Sometime way back in 1999 I stumbled upon the last 10...

The Terminator poster
When people mention the Terminator franchise it gives us this image of a big action blockbuster filled with CGI and a lot of pyrotechnics. That’s not without reason as Terminator 2 was basically responsible for kick-starting the use of computers to create near perfect effects on the big screen. With that in mind it’s fun...

Derailed poster
Derailed is pretty much considered to be one of Jean-Claude van Damme’s worst movies. With titles like Street Fighter, Double Team and Knock Off under his belt that’s saying something. By the time Derailed was released this was already at least the 3rd movie using the “Die Hard on a train” concept, and when you’re...

Leprechaun cover
Studios love nothing more than a movie that’s guaranteed to bring in a minimum amount of money. Since movie making is always a gamble nothing gets green lighted as easy as a sequel to a box-office smash. Sometimes these perform so well a third installment is in the works in no time and so a...
