Arcade (1993) 88 Films 2014 DVD

Arcade (1993) 88 Films 2014 DVD

Ken Wynne reviews the 88 Films DVD release; Arcade (1993), directed by Albert Pyun.

Arcade is a science fiction horror movie centred around a virtual reality arcade machine which challenges it’s players to win…or lose your own sense of reality! You see, “Arcade” is different in the way it reacts. It’s artificial intelligence responds in the same way as a human would, so each time you play “Arcade” it changes it’s strategy.

“Who gives a fuck about Arcade anyway?”

Almighty Thor (2011)

Almighty Thor (2011)

Adam Carl Parker-Edmondston reviews Almighty Thor (2011), directed by Christopher Ray.

It is heartbreaking when a film that could have been a trash classic falls so far from the mark. The budget was obviously an issue. This movie was never going to be able to match the sheer scope of a Kenneth Branagh film, but it is a shame that it does not even try.

THE LEGEND IS BORN!

Godzilla (1998)

Godzilla (1998)

A.J. Hakari reviews Godzilla (1998), directed by Roland Emmerich.

1998′s Godzilla ranks right up there with The Phantom Menace as one of the most despised cinematic entities of the decade. Having watched it with an affinity for wanton violence more refined than in my teenage years, I can see what made Godzilla so crushing of a disappointment.

 
SIZE DOES MATTER.

Tobor the Great (1954)

Tobor the Great (1954)

A.J. Hakari reviews Tobor the Great (1954), directed by Lee Sholem.

If The Day the Earth Stood Still were all about getting Gort to work, it’d probably look a little something like Tobor the Great. For all of its talk about space exploration, artificial intelligence, and even psychic phenomena (yep, the robot’s telepathic, too), the film retains a personal edge, a smallness that makes its huge ideas a bit easier to relate to and digest.

“Gee, Tobor, you’re wonderful!”

The Wild Women of Wongo (1958)

The Wild Women of Wongo (1958)

Richelle Charkot reviews The Wild Women of Wongo (1958), directed by James L. Wolcott.

This film, with all of its 1950’s ignorance about women and sex, is easily one of the most outlandishly offensive movies I’ve ever watched – and I can’t say I hated the experience.

This movie is funny, it is cheesy, and it is in the poorest of poor tastes; but really, who doesn’t like a little T&A?

“The tribe of many men come in big canoes bringing war to the coast.”
