I mostly like Uncommon Movies, as you can see from my reviews, they are uncommon to Most people. As of late I find myself enjoying movies from the Criterion Collection, Hammer Collection, Bava Collection, and The grindhouse Experience. Somehow got locked into B Movies of 42nd Street, Asian Horror and Action Films, All types of Horror, Debbie Rachon, Paul Nastey. So if your into typical American Movies like Spiderman, Talladega Nights, well then don't ask me to the movies. Spent most of my life outside the United States and Loving It while serving in the US Navy. As Steven Segall said just a cook. Enjoy meeting people worldwide, So if you have a Movie to Share or know one I should see let me hear from you. I answer all e-mails, so let me hear from you.
If you know of some Used DVD shops in NYC are Let me know.

For a black and white movie this is a pretty good flick. Wouldn't good as far as to call it a B-Movie. The copy I had was excellent quality and was part of the Drive-In Cult Classics Vol 2, which is a set of 8 movies. This one even had a Drive-In Intermission Film that I remember from back in the day. Robert Alda is our main man, working undercover to expose a cult. We have two beautiful ladies in this one, and while working undercover Robert seems to be falling for the Devil witch. Have to say I enjoyed it. For time frame it was filmed in, must have drew a crowd. Its worth the buy. 4 Stars
A movie with the great Pierce Brosnan can't go wrong really, everything he does, he makes look effortlessly cool. The story about the diamond heist though, seems secondary to the beautiful locations, and Brett Ratner's obcession with filming Miss Hayek's chest from all conceivable angles (not necessarily a bad thing). Although Hayek is SO botoxed that she can barely move her facial muscles to express any kind of emotion. Woody Harrelson and Brosnan make a really funny team, and if they make a sequel, I hope it concentrates on their two characters, because they have a great screen chemistry. 5 Stars 5-2-14
I love Back to the Future. While having a typical 80s feel to it, which I like, I love how fun, irresistible and original the film is. The special effects are dazzling and the comedy is suitably sly and sophisticated. Helping along the way is a script that is pretty ingenious, the sort of script that has quotable lines and also pokes fun at 1950s icons and lifestyles during the frequent bouts of time travelling. The score by Alan Silvestri elevates the sense of fun to a greater level, the main theme is one of the most memorable themes ever in the history of film, or so I think anyway. Robert Zemekis's direction is very good, and the cinematography, scenery and costumes are also excellent. And I have to mention the acting, Michael J Fox is really appealing in the role of Marty McFly, the role that propelled him to stardom, and Christopher Lloyd is brilliant in one of his most memorable roles(and yes this includes Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Professor Plum from Clue). Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover are also great. Overall, brilliant film that is good in so many ways. 4 stars 10-27-07 (Updated)
This was obviously made because Toho wanted to discover new plot elements for their kaiju film formula, which was falling into something of a predictable rut (humans fight humans, humans fight monster, monster fights monster, sayonara). But simply limiting the amount of time the monsters appear on screen offers no improvement. "Sea Monster" is one of the weaker entries in the original Godzilla series. Much of the film is directed as light comedy, a mild satire on the James Bond films. Actually, the comedy works pretty well; it's never knee-slapping laugh-out-loud, but it finds and sustains a level of humor most viewers should find fairly easy to live with. The monsters here are almost tossed in for deus-ex-machina plot devices, saving the day at the last moment. To be sure, it's amusing to see Godzilla sit around pondering what to do with the woman he's just saved from bad guys, but there really isn't much for him to do here. He zaps a giant vulture, pulls the claws off a lobster and smashes a nuclear power plant - and that's about it. For a minute towards the end, it almost looks like things will get complicated by a battle between Godzilla and Mothra, but this doesn't really amount to much either. For Godzilla completists, it's a relatively harmless sub-par entry - it certainly doesn't scrape the same bottoms as "Godzilla's Revenge" or "vs. Megalon". But if you are not yet a Big G. fan, this should not be your introduction to the series. 3 Stars 4-8-14
This movie is probably Will smiths best movie. Will smith is a brilliant actor. He plays the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali. I expected more of a boxing movie but it was more about religion and Alis life outside of boxing. Muhammad Ali was a Muslim and he worshiped Elijah Muhammad. Elijah Muhammad was the leader of nation of Islam, and Muhammad Ali wanted to spread hes message thru boxing. Muhammad Ali was a smart boxer, he made hes opponents angry before the match by teasing them and calling them names. This is a movie you probably have to see, probably one of my favorite movies.
