Problem Child 1990.

A child is passed around due to his behavoiur and turned over to a orphanage run by nuns. He is soon adopted by a caring man and his obnoxious wife. He leaves a wake if destruction behind him and his only friend is career criminal the bow tie killer.

Early slap stick comedy from the 90s, John Ritter plays the doting father who thinks he has adopted Satan, dressings child as the devil for a party is a great choice. Amy Yasbeck stars as the annoying wife Flo. Right from the start it has it's laughs with the voice over from Michael Oliver (Junior). I'm sure we were young a well behaved all the time . Still worth the watch and laughs.

Directed/Written/Stars by D. Lundgren this movie got everything to be good, but it's not amazing, Dolph doesn't have any more that aura from the 80's, and the action is minimum, the good thing is the gore/blood.



Before BBC transforms Dracula in a bisexual vampire, I decided to watch this one, where we have a lesbian "Dracula" - I really was looking forward to see this movie, but it's boring.. plain boring.. Soledad Miranda is not doubt gorgeous, and just for her it's worth spend 1h29m, but that's about it. the plot makes no sense, Franco probably lost interest on the movie after 20m, repeats the same scenes over and over again.. Sad!

When John Winger ( Bill Murry) loses his job and girlfriend in the same day , he decides to join the army and ropes in his best mate (Harold Ramis) . Thinking it will be easy he slowly begins to change from the childish man child he is. Lots of familiar faces. 6.5/10


Now watching.

Colossal.

Anne Hathaway is a millenial drunk (aren't they all) who hangs around with a lot of people who clearly don't have to work..............

But i digress, she seems to control the actions of a monster in Seol, but there is A LOT OF TALKING in this "rom-com/dramedy/kaiju mash up.

The characters are boring & difficult to relate to & unless you've usd the . Phrase "I need to sort out my life", this is nooot for you...

Let's all watch Creepshow & feel better!!

Paranormal Entity

Clone. Great big clone
Goes as far as to have no credits whatsoever , but isn't distinctive enough within the 'constraints' of the genre.




3 From Hell

Watch another RZ flick? By choice??
When a film director finally runs outta steam, he reheats a pie best left to the birds . By Cthulhu it's a hoot though. Laugh? Like a drain.

Problem Child 2 1991.

Ben Healy and Junior head to start a new life in Mortville. Junior tries his best to stop his dad from dating the neighbours, ruin the richest woman in town plans and outsmart a new nemesis...a girl.

Direct sequel with John Ritter and Michael Oliver reprising their roles, Amy Yasbeck returns in a different role as the school nurse, and Jack Warden as big Ben Healy. Ivyann Schwan as the troublesome Trixie. This film has been messed up over the years through the editing process and viewed with scenes deleted or shortened. The laughs still come with anyone with a good sense of humour...who wouldn't mess with a fair ride.

The Night Has Eyes (1942)

The Night Has Eyes is one of those ingenious little Gothic chillers that has all the right ingredients that make for a classic old dark house thriller.

Dark stormy nights, shadowy corridors, secret rooms, skeletons, perilous marshes, murder, a house full of seemingly 'strange' inhabitants, psychological shocks, and a foreboding soundtrack. All quite wonderfully held together by a strong central performance from an introspective James Mason.

American Ninja 1985.

A new recruit based at a army base in the Philippines, foils an ambush attempt and is suspected of being involved and uses his fighting skill to clear his name and stop the sale of army weaponry being sold.

Michael Dudikoff may not be like Sho Kusugi but he does know how to handle weapons, cheesy ass Cannon movie that seems like everyone has predicted everyone's moves and expected the weapons to fly. The plot of the story is good and plenty of action and fairly decent acting may not be the best, worth a watch.

America Ninja 2: The Confrontation. 1987

On a Caribbean Island army rangers Joe Armstrong and Curtis Jackson are investigating the disappearance of marines which lead them to a master criminal 'The Lion' and a kidnapped doctor who try to create a super Ninja.

This was a decent sequel to the first film, Michael Dudikoff and Steve James return as Joe and Curtis sent by the American Embassy to find missing marines and come across a island full of ninja's. The fight choreography seems to be a bit better and still some scenes have their flaws and laughs, even though both main actors seem to try and upstage each other

Unearthly Stranger (1963)

Things begin to go wrong for scientist John Neville when his beautiful but otherworldly wife becomes of interest to his superiors in the government, meaning both he and his wife are in great danger.

Definitely of it's time and possibly too talky for a modern audience, Unearthly Stranger is quietly compelling viewing. The film is intriguing and thought provoking and nicely atmospheric thanks to it's stark black and white photography. Also it's not a spoiler to say Unearthly Stranger has one hell of a final scene.

The cast headed by Neville also includes Jean Marsh and Warren Mitchell and the lovely Gabriella Licudi as Neville's wife.

An almost forgotten slice of British cinema, Unearthly Stranger is recommended for those into sci-fi or with an appreciation of British films.
