    My son and his girlfriend moved back in with me and we decided to start up movie night again. It was the kid’s choice tonight so he picked “The Guyver”. I hadn’t seen this in over twenty years but my memory was pretty spot on. Great monsters, awesome suits, mostly bad everything else.

    The Kid’s rating: Solid four stars

    Mallory’s rating: A reluctant three star

Sure, the acting is wooden, the dubbing hilarious (check out the Southern belle accent in "Rats"), and technical deficiencies abound, but there are lots of rats. Big ones, small ones, white ones and black ones, fake ones and as is par for many Italian 80's horror movies, real ones that are set on fire and let loose to run around screeching.…
