Roger Corman's Death Race 2050
17 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Not exactly sure what is the point of the movie... In this remake, a totalitarian United States of Corporation ruled by Chairman (a pretentious mockery of Donald Trump), 5 racers race to kill as many people as possible before a transcontinental finish line. The racers are archetypes: Rogue AI controlled car Abe, religious fanatic Tammy, ghetto Minerva, Sexually frustrated Jed and legendary Frankenstein. The race was made harder with the rebellion running loose.

Death Race 2050 is a huge disappointment, it from the serious tone of the other Deathrace movies to this... I understood the satirical humour in the original but this one is trying so hard that it fell apart. The acting is awful, the special effects and gore were as fake as it could be but not grindhouse quality. The cars looked worn before the race even began. There are so many things wrong with this movie but Burt Grinstead gave his best and he was actually convincingly funny

Dexter's Laboratory Ego Trip

One of the childhood favourites. The concept was really great: Dexter recruits various version of himself to fight Mandark. It is sort of a parody of Terminator with 12 monkeys.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I guess you can call this the first Michael Bay film. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea was the second adaptation of the Jules Vernes novel, it features iconic mariner costumes. The story telling was a mess however, but the special effect was impressive considering the budget. It's not the most interesting films but deserves cinematic recognition.

The 300 Spartans

½

An original film that forsook historical accuracy in favour of cinematography, The 300 Spartans was beautiful epic about the Battle Of Thermopylae. The pace was a bit slow but understandable.
