The Enemy Below (1957) -Dick Powell

Robert Mitchum and Curt Jurgens headline the next film on the What Else to Watch list following my screening of Das Boot while exploring the very enjoyable The Movie Book from DK Canada. Mitchum, Murrell, is the captain of an American destroyer, the USS Haynes,  in the South Atlantic during World War II, who finds…

South Park: The Complete Third Season

The fun, comedy, and sheer insanity of what is South Park Season Three blazed across my screen this week, as I delved into The Complete Third Season of the Comedy Central show available now on blu-ray from Paramount Pictures. Over the course of seventeen episodes the small Colorado town of South Park is explored through…

Star Trek: Beyond (2016) – Justin Lin

  The latest Star Trek film, celebrating the long-lived series 50th anniversary hits screens nationwide today, and once again, film-goers are invited to Boldly go… And for the most part, it’s pretty damned enjoyable, and arguably a step up from the previous entry.

  Luc Besson co-wrote and produced this fun entry on the 101 Action Movies list which stars the very cool Jason Statham as Frank Martin, an ex-military type who hires himself as a driver to transport different materials for the right price. A deal is a deal, he never wants names, and he never looks in the…

The Five Deadly Venoms (1978) – Cheh Chang

The Shaw Brothers bring another film to the 101 Action Movies list that brings all the variables we’ve come to expect from the classic kung fu movies, fights, betrayals, secrets, and more fights! Cheh Chang directs the tale that has a convoluted and engaging plot as young Yang Tieh (Sheng Chiang) is summoned to his…
