With the imminent release of the new Robocop film I thought a rewatch of the notorious trilogy bookend was in order. Directed by Fred 'The Monster Squad' Dekker and written by graphic novel icon Frank Miller how could it go wrong?. Well in all fairness I don't think they did go that far wrong abeit a few obvious changes...[more]...
|Directed by:||Joe Dante|
|Written by:||Larry Doyle|
|Cast:||Brendan Fraser, Jenna Elfman, Steve Martin, Joan Cusack, Heather Locklear, Timothy Dalton, Bill Goldberg, Robert Picardo, Matthew Lillard|
Not quite hot on the heels of 'Space Jam' but clearly whipped out to try and garner as much success as said film, how could they fail...[more]...
|Directed by:||Burt Kennedy|
|Written by:||Frank A. Cappello|
|Cast:||Hulk Hogan, Christopher Lloyd, Shelley Duvall, Larry Miller|
|Genre:||Sci-Fi, Action, Action|
Holy tight ass spandex Batman! a vehicle all for Hulk Hogan! luckily Christopher Lloyd is there to save the day kinda. An alien warrior that oddly enough looks exactly like a human being must save Earth and the universe from another set of aliens who also happen to look exactly like Human beings! what are the odds...[more]...
|Directed by:||Peter Berg|
|Written by:||Peter Berg|
|Cast:||Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Eric Bana|
|Genre:||Action, Drama, War|
This film was made by Peter Berg, the same guy who made 'Battleship'!...well I guess that explains the casting of Taylor Kitsch again. Man talk about not learning lessons, Kitsch was the only guy in this film that genuinely didn't fit the bill, next to Wahlberg and Foster it is clear...[more]...
|Directed by:||Fred Dekker|
|Written by:||Shane Black, Fred Dekker|
|Cast:||Andre Gower, Robby Kiger, Stephen Macht, Duncan Regehr|
|Genre:||Action, Comedy, Drama|
Bunch of savvy kids that have their own secret club, a neat treehouse base and end up on a spooky adventure trying to stop supernatural forces...you could say this has a 'Goonie' influence. Hell the young boys even have a fat kid amongst their ranks and he wears loud brightly coloured shirts too...[more]...
|Directed by:||Aaron Norris|
|Written by:||James Bruner, Chuck Norris|
|Cast:||Chuck Norris, Aki Aleong, Roland Harrah III, Miki Kim|
Chuck is back and he's wearing his bandanna!. This time he's found out (conveniently by some creepy reverend who just happens to be in the US from Nam for what seems like five minutes) that his wife is still alive and well (sorta) back in Nam. Old Chuck thought she had died during the fall of Saigon. To make matters worse she has had his child! omg!! now Chuck is seriously pissed and you better bet your ass he's gonna KILL EVERYONE...[more]...
|Directed by:||Brian Gilbert|
|Written by:||Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais|
|Cast:||Judge Reinhold, Judge Reinhold, Judge Reinhold, Swoosie Kurtz|
Strange to think this little forgotten 80's comedy is actually an adaptation of a late 18th Century novel. Hardly the kind of thing you'd expect to see Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage in. This overlooked flick came out a few months before 'Big' but failed to do as well unsurprisingly...[more]...
|Directed by:||Neill Blomkamp|
|Written by:||Neill Blomkamp|
|Cast:||Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Diego Luna, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Carly Pope, Talisa Soto|
What starts out as quite a grounded realistic take on the future quickly descents into the kind of action flick you'd half expect to see Arnie in about 20 years ago. In fact this film reminded me very much of the Verhoeven ultra violent sci-fi 'Total Recall' with its themes on class levels, the rich and the poor and of course the hyper levels of violence...[more]...
|Directed by:||Brian Levant|
|Written by:||Randy Kornfield|
|Cast:||Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sinbad, Phil Hartman, Rita Wilson, James Belushi, Robert Conrad, Martin Mull, Jake Lloyd|
A film all about buying your child's love? hmmm. Well its not all as bad as it sounds, the film does manage to turn that on its head by the end, just about, close call though...[more]...
