Invasion of the Body Snatchers
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A health inspector tells her boss about her husband's sudden change of behavior and his strange doings. The boss notices several other oddities over the course of his days as he passes through the city. Upon further investigation he notices the similarly affected gathering and exchanging items. A chilling, paranoia-inducing film which could be used as an allegory for political movements. A solid cast including, Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, and Leonard Nimoy, with cameos by Kevin Mccarthy and Robert Duvall along with Michael Chapman, cinematographer on Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Fugitive, and Primal Fear, ensures this Philip Kaufman-directed horror is presented effectively. The version I have posses terrible audio-quality which affects the enjoyment of the movie; part of the chilling eeriness is supposed to be derived from the sound. For example, the decrease in natural sounds, such as dogs barking or birds chirping, as the film progresses or the famous horrifying pod-scream. A timeless psychological-horror which 1970's gritty film style only adds to its impact.

Judge Dredd
Judge Dredd (1995)

The most gung-ho of the Judges (police/judge/executioners in a post-apocalyptic world) is framed for murder by his half-brother who wants to control the Judge force. On his journey to prison, his transport is disrupted and he escapes along with a hacker "nice criminal" used for comedic relief. Upon trying to clear his name he is framed for even more crimes. With a hell of a cast (Sylvester Stallone, Armand Assante, Rob Schneider, and Jürgen Prochnow along with the voices of James Earl Jones and Bebe Neuwirth) this action comedy falls flat mostly due to terrible CGI and a very uneven tone. Also, Stallone definitely had his "magic shoes" on as his 5'9"(5'7"?) height was suddenly 6"+. You can safely miss this one.

Barb Wire
Barb Wire (1996)

Pam Anderson at her peak hotness (17 inch waist!!!) in this cyber-punk fetishist post-apocalyptic film. The movie starts with the titular character stripping at a high-dollar club (though, it is painfully obvious a body-double was employed). (I saved you the work, it was Lowell's MA's finest, country music artist Tonya Watts substituting for Pam in the nude scenes.) Pam is an independent businesswoman during our country's second civil war in the far-off year of 2017, and ends up on the wrong side of everyone during the course of her dealings. Decent action kept me interested, but poor acting and terrible comedic timing keeps this from becoming a B-movie classic. Tiny Lister and Clint Howard have minor roles.

Doctor Mordrid

½

Jeffery Combs is the doctor and landlord of a Manhattan apartment building. In reality he is an ancient interdimensional wizard who has been secretly living on Earth waiting for the return of his archenemy, Kabal. Kabal is a demon who looks to open a portal to hell in order to rule over the planet. With the aid of his new girlfriend, Mordrid is able to prevent such a dastardly event from occurring. Good pacing in this Full Moon production keeps the story interesting and the small budget doesn't detract from the film at all. A must-watch for fantasy/horror buffs.

Darkman

A research scientist who was burned up in an explosion set by the mob, uses an artificial skin he created in order to create disguises in order to get vengeance. A superhero film oftentimes in the style of 1940s pulp comics. Sam Rami directs and Frances McDormand and Liam Neeson star in this action/horror comedy with appearances by Ted Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Joel and Ethan Cohen driving a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88.
