Recently picked up Street Law and the Big Racket.
Along with Shameless, I'm having a bit of a Euro crime run at the moment.

Saw 'Welcome To The Jungle' today, it was released yesterday - not The Rock one.

It was ok. Young group of travellers go off into the jungle with a video camera and ......... well you can imagine the rest.

Bit of a Zombie Holocaust rip off - and no one can touch the hem of that baby's garment.

"Welcome to the Jungle" was actually quite good....and if you're in for a really good deal for the true, original Itallian cannibal movies, then don't look any further than this marvelous 4 disc set from "Another World", containing some of the essential cannibal movies. They're a bit slim extra wise, but the pq is top notch and you can't beat that price tag: 29.95 Euro for uncut versions of

"Cannibal Holocaust", "Cannibal Ferox", "Mountain of the Cannibal God" and "Eaten Alive!" (though the latter has some dialogue bits shortened, but the gore is complete).

@reaper: I'd say with both, the ABUS AND the Elite disc, you're more than well served regarding "Maniac"

Watched in the last week and rated:

Welcome Home Soldier Boys - Obscure, OK but slow-moving
Open Your Eyes - Good, wish I hadn't seen Vanilla Sky first
Milan Calibre 9 - Enjoyable but not a keeper
Eijanaika - OK, slightly overrated
Yakuza's Law - ditto, gory
Night of Dark Shadows/House of Dark Shadows - Very, very slow, had to fast forward some parts, not good
Ong Bak - Excellent fighting sequences but overall so-so
Zeder/House with the Laughing Windows - Atmospheric but too slow for my taste
Hero/House of Flying Daggers - Very overrated, sumptuous to look at but hollow
Angel Guts collection - Nami very good, others forgettable
Hidden (Cache) - Extremely frustrating and annoying, almost anti-film
Razorback (S.E.) - Liked it 20 years ago, not so much now
The Skull (Legend Films) - Enjoyable Cushing/Lee effort
Days of Glory - OK french war movie with a message
Royal Hunt of the Sun - Well acted but stagey and boring
Rescue Dawn - Very good
Angel of Vengeance (new uncut French release) - Very good, had forgotten how good this was
Sex and Fury - Excellent
Massacre Mafia Style - Enjoyed this a lot, 70s violent exploitation with ideas above it's budget, needs a DVD release
The Good German - Technically very good but cold like all Soderbergh's films despite best efforts of cast

Also bought Motorpsycho - that one is recommeded.
Mondo mod and Endless Summer- 60s surf and stuff ( I enjoyed both)
To Be 20 (raro 2 disc)- two completely different films using same footage, both completely insane, highly recommended.
Black Cobra Box Set - so far seen part one, its good.

I love the scene of a plastered Keitel sliding to the ground during the doo-wop song ("Rubber Biscuit" by The Chips), and the use of Phil Spector tracks is brilliant.
