Kill ‘Em All (2017) This is one of the worst movies I’ve seen in years. Maybe one of the top five worst I’ve ever seen and God knows, I’ve watched some trash. It’s Jean Claude Van Damme’s worst movie ever, as far as I can remember right now anyway — most of his stuff this side of the 1990’s has been pretty bad to various degrees. It’s a thoroughly depressing stretch of awful. In this one, the latest DTV ...

For some reason I’ve only watched this film once and was going to review it when it came out and when this site first started as a smaller blog but never got around to it. I watched it again for the second time last week and as much as I liked this movie when it came out, for reasons I’m not 100% sure of, I fucking love it now. More than ever. Maybe more than The Expendables ...

The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) One of the freedoms of having a smaller niche site is that you aren’t forced to sit around thinking about how to best polish the latest turd that everyone is gushing over, lest you either don’t appease pseudo intellectuals or affect your standing on a site like, say, Rotten Tomatoes. The truth then. This movie is all show and no go. For two hours I sat around waiting for Martin Scorsese to actually ...

Jacob Harlon (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of TV’s Game of Thrones) used to be the perfect family man – a working-class stockbroker with a loving wife and son. That all changes during an unfortunate incident that put Jacob behind bars, exposing him to the tough realities of prison life, and destroying his ties with his once-happy family. Several years later, a hardened and transformed Jacob emerges, now going through the moniker “Money”, is released, but soon discovers that once he’s in deep ...

I think everyone here can agree that 2014’s The Expendables 3 was a bust, considering it was highly anticipated by fans of the old 80’s – 90’s action guard… only to be let down by a two-hit KO by its weak “young blood” cast, and then further by its PG-13 rating which only hampered down the action sequences. We expected great things from the film, considering that a lot of the actors in there weren’t getting any younger, and their ...

Wheelman (2017) If you’re going to try the gimmick of filming an entire (most of it) action/thriller from inside a vehicle, you really need another gimmick on top of that. Maybe even two, such as some type of big and interesting narrative twist and a unique sense of speed that you can only experience inside hurtling car. We don’t really get either here, unfortunately. Frank Grillo plays the title character, who must deliver two criminals to a bank heist, then ...

I’ve scaled back the reviews of VODmit on here. I think I engaged in too much self flagellation in 2017 in that regard (but now I have a giant backlog of turds that might get tackled) and needed some recovery time. But if you’re like me, think about it positively, because fans of awful movies are usually more intelligent, studies have found. Anyway, nothing much said about this movie so far, because credit-to-credit it’s probably about 80 ...

Those Saw movies used to be good, at least the first one. There were so many sequels I don’t really remember if I enjoyed any, maybe the second one wasn’t too bad. The ‘matter of time’ part has passed and now there is another one out there. Ideally, this kind of update comes when someone offers a premise that is too good to resist, but in this case it’s just another case of the money being too ...

More than just another cheap, nasty direct-to-video action movie, 2018’s Accident Man actually represents a long-gestating passion project for star/co-writer/co-producer Scott Adkins, and his enthusiasm shines through in the finished product. An adaptation of the “Accident Man” comic strips from the early 1990s written by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner, there is so much flavour, wit and charm to the picture, which elevates it above any number of other low-budget action titles currently flooding the marketplace. Admittedly, there might not ...

A lot has changed since I was a kid & a young adult. You see now women can be women, women are encouraged to be men, men are encouraged to be women but one thing a man cannot be apparently in this day & age is a man. Social justice Warriors, Feminazis & Manginas have attached a whole lot of bad things to the term “Boys will be Boys” such as rape, sexism, slave trade and God knows what else. But ...
