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 ...

Who knew that the first movie in this series would be good? That’s not supposed to happen; remakes of classics holding their own. Then, the first indicator of the second movie being good was just how fast they put it into production, evidently, they held onto those good ingredients and knew that they could simply offer seconds, to comparable success. So, now we have our second movie in the re-done Kickboxer series. And it is good. Alain ...

Here’s another VOD movie, although one of those ones where bigger names kind of step down a rung for something easier or as an interesting side project. The two big names in this one are Stephen Lang and Jason Momoa. The latter of which actually has a big hand in the movie, because it comes from his Pride of Gypsies production company. With that, you might think it a good effort by all, and it is, apart ...

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 ...

During the summer of 1995 audiences were treated to a manly documentary masterpiece that featured our Sensei Steven Seagal under one of his many aliases (In this particular adventure he was under the alias Casey Ryback) fighting evil men on a train. Sensei Seagal set the bar really high and let’s just say that after that incident in America for the most part even terrorists have been well behaved while traveling in trains. But unfortunately for the civilized citizens of ...

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 ...

Rob Cohen can make a bad film look good, and work. Take the first Fast & Furious film, it’s the best in that series because it’s the closest to an old 80s/90s action yarn next to its bloated computerized sequels. This film has a good premise, a heist occurring in a small town while it’s evacuated on account of a large hurricane. It should’ve worked, because Cohen is an underrated director, but it the family themed softness ...

Here is a fool writing this review, because I watched the trailer for this movie a long time ago and was quietly excited about it. The slick artwork for a VOD movie also further stewed up some promise. Those hopes faded when people started speaking about how awful the film is, but it wasn’t until I watched it myself that I realized just how bad it is. It’s the fifth team up for Jean Claude Van Damme ...

It seems that Pierce Brosnan and Guy Pearce are easier to hire for work these days. Poor old Brosnan in particular has even been hired by the Indians for some bogus mouth wash commercials, that has left Brosnan upset. Now they’re back on the VOD circuit for The Spinning Man, a movie labelled as a mystery thriller. Although there isn’t much in the way of mystery going on, it could have otherwise been ‘average’ were it not ...

Another weekend, another turd that Netflix has pulled out of someone’s dumpster and is trying to fish for rentals with. Two weekends ago, it was How It Ends, a movie that demoralized me so much I couldn’t even write a review for it. One weekend ago it was Father of the Year, a film so wretched I couldn’t even get past the eight minute mark. This time around, Netflix has been searching Universal’s trash heap and pulled ...
