Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal (2001)

By Ajax Green / July 26, 2021 / 0 Comments

Marilyn Manson fights satanists at 10,000 ft. On paper, this is the best movie of all time: a rock band (“Slade Craven”) stages their last concert on a 747 in flight, but the singer is kidnapped and replaced with a satanic imposter, who is going to crash the plane into a church to open a […]

The Killer Elite (1975)

A San Francisco mercenary spends a lot of time doing physical therapy. James “Thief” Caan is the star of this Sam “The Wild Bunch” Peckinpah movie, and while it is not as bad as Bloody Sam’s “Convoy,” it’s still a very bad movie. However due to the high star wattage of JC and Robert “with […]

After the polar ice caps melt, life becomes aquatic. This movie starts with pee-drinking. Scene 1: hero drinks his own pee! Granted it is filtered through a makeshift pee filtering device, but still! Gross, right? Kevin Costner is terrible as a hero in any movie — if anything he should be cast as “bank clerk […]

The Fog (1980)

A seaside hamlet is besieged by ghost lepers. Have you heard of this guy John Carpenter? He is really good at movies. This tale is silly and ultimately unsatisfying (there’s just not enough hook impalings!) but it also works well because of fun actors, locations, music, and whatnot. Jamie Lee Curtis is a young hitchhiker […]

52 Pick-Up (1986)

By Ajax Green / June 21, 2021 / 0 Comments

A steel magnate gets blackmailed by Philly Boy Roy. I’ve reviewed this before but I’m reviewing it again because it’s so great. “52 Pick-Up” is a pillar of sleaze, a paragon of crime, and chock full of banana hammock style. Based on an Elmore Leonard novel and starring Roy “We Probably Need A Boat that’s […]
