    The Battle Wizard

    ★★★

    This one has revenge based on adultery, a red snake that transfers great martial power to the one who drinks its blood, thrown snakes used as weapons, a bone that shoots missiles, a man in a gorilla suit throwing kung fu moves, a fire breathing wizard on metal stilts, a reject from a third-rate Power Rangers clone, laser shooting fingers, and more. It also has Danny Lee which means you're getting an oddball film that didn't have the budget to…

    Jesse James

    ★★★★

    More of a drama than an action packed film, this Jesse James film still takes a sympathetic view of the James. Good use of technicolor, but the standouts for me are a young Tyrone Power, Randolph Scott as a gentler marshal, and seeing the inspiration for the Northfield bank raid in Hill’s The Long Riders.

    You get to see Fonda reprise his Frank James role a year later.

    ★★★★

    A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.

    ★★★★

    This isn’t the movie Mega City 1 deserves, but it is the movie Mega City 1 needs. A violent, dark dystopia wherein Judges enforce the law with no remorse. In other words, fairly faithful to the comics I’ve read.

    The best comparison in terms of plot, tone, and production design is the first half of The Raid before all of the hand to hand combat began. 

    A good double feature with the 1987 Robocop, this is too dark and violent for many.
