Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
33% Starcrash (1979) " This is 92 minutes of unrelenting insanity; it's not boring, it's crammed with antiquated, but charming special effects and there are cavemen. Cavemen! Cavemen fighting robots!" — DVD Verdict
Posted Sep 7, 2010
47% MacGruber (2010) " With the dull bang of an improvised explosive device constructed from chewing gum and grated cheese, you and your potential detonate in an unimpressive puff of smoke." — DVD Verdict
Posted Sep 7, 2010
11% Killers (2010) " I had a feeling Killers was going to be a kick in the groin, but I had no idea it would be wearing one of those From Russia with Love knife-shoes." — DVD Verdict
Posted Sep 7, 2010
33% To Save a Life (2010) " Hits the right balance between not shying away from its message and not wielding that message like a battle mace." — DVD Verdict
Posted Sep 7, 2010
8% Furry Vengeance (2010) " Like a broadsword colonic, just with more screaming. " — DVD Verdict
Posted Aug 17, 2010
—— Dark Moon Rising (Wolf Moon) (2009) " Put this wolf down." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
—— Circle Of Pain (2010) " You've seen this all before, likely with fewer boobs and more action." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
—— Power Kids (2010) " Terrorists attack a hospital and a group of Muay Thai-practicing kids battle them to ensure their little friend gets the surgery he needs to live. How a movie with this premise can be so screwed up is baffling." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
—— Undisputed III: Redemption (2010) " Seriously, it's awesome." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
37% From Paris with Love (2010) " From Paris with Love is a fat, juicy waste of time." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
—— Puen yai jon salad (Legend of the Tsunami Warrior) (Queens of Langkasuka) (2010) " I may not be completely off the Thai actioner bandwagon, but an overproduced headache like this film does little to convince me to stay on board." — DVD Verdict
Posted Jul 8, 2010
—— Bare Knuckles (1977) " Predictable and dopey from start to finish." — DVD Verdict
Posted May 17, 2010
21% Leap Year (2010) " It doesn't matter how big a dick a guy is, if there's a vista to be seen, love is inevitable." — DVD Verdict
Posted May 17, 2010
—— Haeundae (Tsunami) (Tidal Wave) (2009) " If you're a lover of disaster movies and Roland Emmerich hasn't completely sandblasted your enjoyment of the genre, then I can recommend Tidal Wave for your mayhem digestion." — DVD Verdict
Posted May 17, 2010
56% Skills Like This (2007) " A nifty under-the-radar feature." — DVD Verdict
Posted May 6, 2010
—— The 14 Amazons (1972) " It's all about the girl power and the Amazons deliver." — DVD Verdict
Posted Apr 19, 2010
74% Banlieue 13 - Ultimatum (District 13: Ultimatum) (2009) " A lot less violent than its predecessor but a little more fun." — DVD Verdict
Posted Apr 19, 2010
89% Red Cliff (Chi Bi) (2009) " It's a Risk junkie's wet dream" — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 26, 2010
—— Toxic Skies (2008) " I mentioned bloody stool earlier in the review and I'm going to bring it back again so it's the lasting visual that stays with you any time you think of Toxic Skies." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 26, 2010
—— Cui hua kuang mo (Undefeatable) (2009) " Whenever I type this movie's title, I get the squiggly red line. There's a metaphor in there somewhere for the overall experience." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 26, 2010
70% Sherlock Holmes (2009) " While one wouldn't normally equate Victorian England with big-ass explosions, I bought it." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 26, 2010
31% Bitch Slap (2010) " Flash, sizzle, and nothing else." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 19, 2010
—— Sharpe's Peril (2008) " Richard Sharpe is a badass. Sean Bean is a badass. And when you combine the character and the actor, friend, you've got yourself a big, piping hot bowl of Badass Stew." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 18, 2010
19% The Fourth Kind (2009) " Do we finally have an alien abduction movie that outdoes those 20 useable minutes of Fire in the Sky?" — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 16, 2010
26% Ninja Assassin (2009) " Ninja Assassin is swimming in the shallow end of the pool, but it's thrashing about violently and is lots of fun to watch." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 16, 2010
80% The Neverending Story (1984) " As jaded and cynical as I am these days (hey, did you know we're running monthly federal deficits of $200 billion?!), I still get a bit misty-eyed when Artax meets his muddy fate." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 15, 2010
19% Gentlemen Broncos (2009) " I'm sure that's what the producers thought, that these deer missiles and stuff would be weird and funny, but in action these sequences are just weird." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 10, 2010
14% Year One (2009) " Overwhelmingly fails at everything it attempts." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
41% Wrong Turn (2003) " More enjoyable than the usual hack and slash tripe." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
78% Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007) " A derivative and stupid outing, yes, but there's no shortage of maxed-out kills and over-the-top effects." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
—— Attack Girls Swim Team vs the Unliving Dead (2008) " The McRib of horror movies: disgusting, cheap, and not very good for you." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
25% Godzilla (1998) " When viewed through the Just-Show-Me-Some-Exploding-Helicopters lens, Godzilla comes out as manageable entertainment." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
51% The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009) " If Travolta's facial contortions don't pull you out of this thing, the script will." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
—— Stunt Rock (1989) " You are not man enough for all the stunts and rock." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 5, 2010
48% Stargate (1994) " This might be the only Roland Emmerich movie that hasn't grown more embarrassing with age." — DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 4, 2010
83% Avatar (2009) " Cameron is intent on sticking to his talking points and if that comes at the expense of mirth (this as humorless a movie about dragon-riding cat warriors from space as you're going to find) and plot points and character actions that make sense, so be it." — DVD Verdict
