Film review — 1990: The Bronx Warriors

The details here are, well, really something. I don’t mean that it’s a cheap mash-up riff on The Warriors and Escape From New York. I’m not even talking about the fact it’s clearly shot in Brooklyn (all those exterior scenes in pre-development DUMBO). What I’m asking is, why are the supposed ‘good guys’ adorned in Nazi regalia? What exactly is the relationship between the beefcake lead and the runaway princess-type? Why does the whole thing fall apart when an ending is called for?

Film review — Anthropophagous

I get, say, holding off showing too much of your horror villain to conjure a fearsome air of mystery while attempting to hide your paucity of budget for decent make-up effects. But even five seconds of aul’ porridge face here makes it impossible to take seriously. Let alone that notorious (and notoriously silly) “He eats a baby!” scene. More…

Film review — The Heroin Busters

The main protagonist of this dirtbag drug-bust cop thriller spends what must be several days — between a Hong Kong junk and a turboprop dogfight over the outskirts of Rome via multiple chases and shootouts — wearing a ratty Canadian tuxedo with a rope belt. Does that sell it for you? More…
