    Thank you, Barry. Terrific film noir, paving the way for many gritty crime-dramas to come. Featuring a brooding Steve McQueen and a politically-motivated Robert Vaughn, this movie had one of the best car chases ever filmed. Whether a Mustang or a Charger enthusiast, two cars tearing up the streets in San Francisco was incredible to see. An all-time favorite of mine. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Quirky film, mixing together a convalescing Elvis Presley and a reincarnated mummy into an outlandish comedy-horror adventure. Did not care for this movie when I first saw it years ago, mainly because of Bruce Campbell being cast into a restrained role that seemed unnatural at the time. Even though Bubba Ho-Tep was not a scare-fest like his Phantasm series, with the current viewing I did gain an appreciation for what director Don Coscarelli was trying to create. There were enough entertaining sequences to keep the pace moving right along, plus it featured a standout performance from Ella Joyce as the nurse. Mildly-enjoyable fun. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Even though the bullying theme of this film has been done many times before, there were elements presented that made it interesting. Does not take too long to figure out what was behind the carnage, but wanting to see what was going to happen to the principal characters kept me watching to the very end. Amalia Holm seemed a little too demure as the unpredictable Alena, but Molly Nutley was excellent in her taunting portrayal of the lead bully Filippa. Not something I would watch again, but a worthwhile movie for those who can appreciate the psychological side of horror. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Terrific thriller about three young people thinking they are having fun without repercussion by pranking a trucker, but finding out too late that the person on the other end of the CB is a psychotic killer. The cast was well-chosen, the sets and effects were excellent, and the pacing was perfect. Although there was relatively little bloodshed, the tension was continually escalated through the situations that develop as the trucker came closer and closer to his prey. Really a great movie that spawned two sequels, both of which I found enjoyable despite the decling IMDb ratings. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Barry. This was an undiscovered gem of a film for me, showcasing the struggles of a young man trying to better his life through applying his skills and ingenuity. Great story, solid acting, and good filmwork made for an impressive movie. Link here was not active, but I was able to find one to watch. Very enjoyable. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Interesting and slightly-depressing story of a young woman who sees a chance to improve her station in life, but was unprepared for the consequences. Taking place almost exclusively at a remote convenience store, there was enough intrigue to hold my attention to the very end. Even though the characters were generally unlikeable, and expanding on some of the subject matter would have added impact, this was an entertaining movie for me. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Exceptionally-suspensful film, managing to captivate the viewer with only three principal players carrying the intensity. If it is not already, this should be considered a classic horror movie, featuring a young Billy Zane in an alarmingly-creepy performance as the unexpected guest. The obstacles endured by Sam Neill as he tried to regain control kept the tension level high, and Nicole Kidman played the part of a damsel in distress perfectly. Really terrific movie, worth multiple viewings. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Barry. Intense mixed-martial-arts action, featuring Scott Atkins in top form as a fighter with a conscience. Adkins was convincing in his portrayal of Boyka, eliminating opponents both in and outside of the arena. I consider this one of his best films, very enjoyable. The Openload link is no longer functional, but I was able to find a copy to watch. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Somewhat bizarre horror story, kind of a strange mix between an art-house film and a study in demonology. Both before and after the main feature, there are "experts" describing why this movie may have been the cause of multiple deaths in the past. The plot itself is very basic and for the most part uneventful, even with the quick interspersing of demonic symbols and an unrelated man and woman in distress. There are a couple of segments depicting what happens when backwoods predators encounter outsiders, but otherwise this is not a particularly memorable presentation. Worth a quick watch just to see what all the fuss is about. Thanks also to Barry for the added links. Best regards, Dana

    Thanks, Barry. When watching this movie, viewers need to keep in mind the very low-budget funding, as this is not a multi-million-dollar production. Given the shortcomings in the storyline, acting, and camera work, this was still an entertaining film. The sets were sparse but well-utilized, and the special effects and choreography during the killing sequences were definitely worth seeing. Overall, not to be missed by Friday the 13th fans. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Impressive performance by Antonio Banderas playing an aging security guard, who on his first day is thrust into a dangerous life-or-death situation. Taking place mostly inside a shopping mall, once the main plot unfolds, the interaction of the various characters becomes as entertaining as the action itself. Ben Kingsley was perfect as the criminal kingpin, and the supporting cast helped make the movie memorable. Very enjoyable. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Gritty action film featuring Scott Adkins playing a man starting a new career as a debt collector. The hiring organization requires that their collectors employ strong enforcement techniques, involving a lot of beating up people. Paired up with an experienced collector, Adkins quickly adapts to the dangers of his new profession. Plenty of martial-arts action, and a story that at least provided a comprehensible theme. Although I cannot say this was one of Adkin's better efforts, it was not a bad film. The ending did leave a few unanswered questions for the viewer to ponder. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Barry and Cyber Girl. Expecting a fast-paced dramatic rise of evil from the super-criminal Joker, I was surprisingly entertained by the slow descent into self-absorption and madness of the Arthur Fleck character. Joaquin Phoenix was alarmingly-intense in his portrayal of the Joker, and the story tied together some details of Bruce Wayne's pre-Batman life. There were sequences that depicted both real and imagined experiences, plus clips that were shown earlier where they made no sense were repeated later in the proper context. While these techniques were intriguing, I felt they added unnecessary confusion to the storyline. There were some scenes of violence, but the focus was on the dark and dismal world as perceived by Arthur Fleck as he ultimately emerges victorious as the Joker. Not your typical comic-book villain movie, more a psychological study of a person driven to evil by his surroundings. Not bad, definitely worth the watch. Best regards, Dana WARNING: There are some very brief cutaways to cattle being slaughtered, possibly intended to symbolize the helpless decline of Arthur Fleck and predatory rise of the Joker. Some viewers may find those scenes offensive.

    Thank you Cyber Girl. Likeable story about an adventurous girl who grows up with her explorer parents in the jungle, and then thrust into city life to discover the civilized world. Lots of clever and comedic sequences, complete with good guys, bad guys, and those that don’t have a clue. More a film for young teens, but also had enjoyable moments for adults. Thanks also to Barry for the additional links. Best regards, Dana
