Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan - Jason is accidentally revived again and stows away on board a cruise ship with graduating high school students headed for New York, he kills most of them on the ship and the survivors make it to the city and he chases them around there. This last installment in the Paramount series, before they helped New Line produce the 2009 remake, isn't as bad as some claim it to be, but Jason's death is the dumbest one they could come up with. And his teleportation ability is silly.
I actually dig this one a lot. Between the teleportations, Rennie's hallucinations about little kid Jason, and that bonkers ending, I think it's the most surreal of the Paramount flicks. I don't know, I just think it's a hell of a lot of fun.

BAD SAMARITAN (2017) - Currently playing in theaters, this horror/thriller was directed by Dean Devlin (more famous as a producer on projects like STARGATE and INDEPENDENCE DAY) and stars David Tennant (DOCTOR WHO, the remake of FRIGHT NIGHT) and Robert Sheehan.

Tennant plays a middle-aged rich guy with a penchant for kidnapping women and torturing them to death. Sheehan is a burglar in his early 20s who stumbles upon one of Tennant's soon-to-be victims but can't go to the police because they'll figure out just how he found out about this and put him in jail for his burglaries. Tennant, meanwhile, views the surveillance cameras all over his house and determines to ruin Sheehan's life.

A decent enough cat-and-mouse thriller with a great performance from Tennant, but the whole film falls apart in the last half hour with corny dialogue that completely deflates any of the tension the first hour and 10 minutes had built up. Feels like a parody at the end. 3 stars out of 5.

This is similar to DON'T BREATHE.

Deadpool 2

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

A good sequel that introduces some new and surprise characters with Domino's debut being my fav. Otherwise most jokes were anything but funny and relied too much on simply breaking the "fourth wall" rather than really bringing something meaningfull to the story.

Director: David Leitch
Running time: 119 minutes
Released: 2018

DUDES (1987) - Directed by Penelope Spheeris.

A trio of New York punks (Jon Cryer, Daniel Roebuck, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) decide they're bored with their lives and head for Los Angeles. Along the way, they are robbed by a group of rednecks (lead by Lee Ving, also lead singer of the band FEAR) and one of their number is shot dead. When the local police refuse to help, citing insufficient evidence and blaming the punks for their choice in attire, the two survivors decide to track down their attackers and get revenge.

A western action, a fish-out-of-water comedy, and a revenge drama, this film might not have done well in its day because it was hard to market, but I found it a lot of fun to watch. 4.5 stars out of 5.

Cargo

Based on the viral short film, this is the story of a man and his infant daughter who are stranded in the middle of a zombie apocalypse in rural Australia. And when he becomes infected, the countdown begins for him to find her protection before he changes forever.

Apart from some interesting characters moments and the Australian setting, this is yet another forgettable zombie flick. Been there, undead that.

Directors: Yolanda Ramke, Ben Howling
Running time: 105 minutes
Released: 2017

THE DEATH OF THE INCREDIBLE HULK (1990) - Final made-for-TV movie with the beloved Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno combo. This one was directed by Bixby.

Dr. David Banner works as a janitor for a research facility under a false name. He sneaks in after hours to work on DNA formulas in an attempt to reverse the condition that turns him into a big green monster when he's angry.

Meanwhile, a beautiful Russian spy (not Black Widow, I assure you) is blackmailed by the agency she once worked for to break into the research facility and steal secrets for her former employers.

Dr. Banner and the Russian spy lady wind up teaming up, falling in love, and attempting to break away from their past lives.

The film is hampered by it's slow pace, but Bixby puts in a good performance. Elizabeth Gracen is solid as Jasmin, the Russian spy. Ferrigno's Hulk always looked silly to me. 2 stars out of 5.

Hollow Man

When the leader of a team of scientists volunteers to be the test subject for their experiment in human invisibility, he slowly unravels and turns against them, with horrific consequences.

Good special effects but ultimately one of the most disappointing effort from the usually great director.

Director: Paul Verhoeven
Running time: 112 minutes
Released: 2000

Solo A Star Wars Story

During an adventure into the criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium. In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the perfect vessel for the dangerous mission -- the Millennium Falcon.

An amazing thrill ride with plenty of surprising twists and cool easter eggs for the diehard fans. By far the best Star Wars film since Return of the Jedi.

Director: Ron Howard
Running time: 135 minutes
Released: 2018

A Day Of Violence - gory Brit thriller
The Darkroom - underrated psychological horror
Graves End - this should be given a decent dvd release
The Devil's Advocate - Pacino in one of his best roles, great horror
Sudden Fury - first film from Darren Ward who made A Day Of Violence - looking forward to Beyond Fury - when released! Italian stars from the 80's Bobby Rhodes, Barbara Cupisti and Giovanni Lombardi Radice are in it
Straw Dogs (original) - Peckinpah in fine form

PANIC IN YEAR ZERO (1962) - Ray Milland directs and stars alongside Frankie Avalon in this apocalyptic thriller.

A middle class family (father, mother, daughter, son) wakes early one morning for a fishing trip but along the way they notice a mushroom cloud off in the distance (the direction of Los Angeles, specifically). They soon realize that America is under attack and dear old dad quickly becomes a man of action, desperate to ensure the survival of his family and struggling with the emotional toll of his decisions.

A well acted and well written study in the psychology of a crisis and how quickly lawlessness could take hold of a microcosm of society. 4.5 stars out of 5.
