Throwback

Australian low budget Yowie movie that was made on a budget so low you wouldn’t believe it was possible and still comes up with the goods! Starting with a prologue that’s ‘Finding Bigfoot meets Mad Dog Morgan’ we find ourselves in the Australian gold-fields of 1825 where notorious bush-ranger Thunderclap Newman is about to meet […]

Yakuza Apocalypse

Takashi Miike has a global reputation as a purveyor of the wild, the edgy, the transgressive. In fact, the bulk of the Japanese director’s extensive filmography is more traditional fare, despite his standing as the international festival circuit’s enfante terrible. Yakuza Apocalypse, however, is exactly the kind of film you think of when you think […]

Redeemer

With its cookie-cutter plot and cardboard characters, Redeemer is a throwback to the 80s. A time when action films could get away with being a flimsy excuse to hang a succession of stunt scenes on. But in modern times, the result is underwhelming at best.

Valley of the Cycle Sluts

Order DVD Tough ex-cop Wade Olsen (Jason Williams – probably better known as the titular “Flesh” of Flesh Gordon) is kidnapped by an all-girl gang of bikers known as the Sisters Of Love. They want revenge (Olsen has either busted or killed each of their men) so they stake him out in Death Valley and […]

Supervan

Order DVD The Cheezy Flicks motto seems to be to bring you the best of the worst and with 1977’s SuperVan they have outdone themselves! This isn’t so bad it’s good as much as so bad you can’t believe it!! And I loved every damn insane, pointless, exploitative, WTF moment of it! Okay, enough exclamation marks. Truth is, most […]

Hamburger Hill

‘War at it’s worst. Men at their best.’ While the 1970s produced a number of classic Vietnam War films, such as Who’ll Stop the Rain (1978), The Deer Hunter (1978), Apocalypse Now (1979) and the Australian production The Odd Angry Shot (1979), it really wasn’t until the 1980’s that the subject became more acceptable as […]

Kite [Blu-Ray]

Sawa (India Eisley) is a young woman bent on revenge. Her parents were killed by a human trafficker known only as The Emir, leaving her with nothing. Her father’s partner, hard-bitten cop Karl (Samuel L Jackson) feeds her information, weapons…and memory-repressing drugs to enable her to fight through her darkness. She kills her way up […]

The Raid 2

ORDER DVD  / ORDER BLU-RAY The Raid hit action fans like a bomb in 2012. The Indonesian crime flick had as simple a set-up as could be imagined – a handful of cops have to fight their way through a multi-storey tenement building searching for both escape and the crime boss at the top (such […]

Empire of the Apes

ORDER DVD Three women are held captive on a prison ship in space, en route to be sold to an alien race as sex slaves. They capture one of the ship’s escape pods, and flee to a nearby planet. When they land they are confronted by the planet’s inhabitants – sentient apes, who hope to […]

Nighthawks

ORDER DVD Lost somewhere in between Stallone’s highly successful Rocky and Rambo franchises, Nighthawks is an underrated gem in action cinema and is notable for introducing Rutger Hauer to American audiences and Sly kicking ass in drag. Nighthawks revolves around two New York undercover cops DaSilva (Stallone) and Fox (Billy Dee Williams) who are assembled by a British Counter-terrorist specialist Hartman (Nigel […]
