I dunno man. I don’t know how much longer I can do it. Sit through Bruce Willis’ money-grabbing DTV hoaxes. “What is that?” Well let me answer in further detail here. Or to put it more succinctly, it’s when actors who have more money than they could ever really spend appear in really (really) awful DTV movies in extended cameos, where the entire production is based on whether or not they actually show up and ...

This isn’t going to be a very long review because, well, what the hell can you say about an 87 minute slog of VODmit, other than a big name (Sylvester Stallone) briefly, shamefully, showing up? These ambitious thriller screenplays are hand-me-downs for streaming services for a reason; none of the big studios want them. And none of the big studios want them for a reason. Now that DVD and Blu-Ray are dead though, you wonder how these ...
