    Stickfighter

    ★★★★

    This unseen gem is amazing. I don't know how or why this vanished from cinematic history, but it's a real shame. It falls firmly into that sweet spot between legitimately solid action film and odd passion project. It's awkward in every way, and in all the right ways.

    But let's start with star and writer Kely McClung as DEA agent John Lambert. McClung is exactly what you want in this role: a guy with quality martial arts skills and a…

    Attack of the Beast Creatures

    ★★★½

    My luck with tiny monster movies has been great lately!

    Attack of the Beast Creatures is populated completely by people who only appeared in Attack of the Beast Creatures. Written, directed, edited and produced by people who only worked on Attack of the Beast Creatures. It appears to be a pure, uncut labor of love...and I love it for that.

    The story's simple. Castaways from the shipwreck Obelisk wash ashore on an island that is infested with tiny little dolls…

    Dragon Hunt

    ★★★½

    Today seemed like an excellent day to revisit my favorite on-screen pair of irritable, interchangeable Canadian survivalists and their cartoonish array of villains.

    The "B"s make this worth a look. B. Bob's Jake and Billy Butt's numerous power anthems.

    Joe Piscopo: A Night at Club Piscopo

    In 2012, in a small room off of the Resorts Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a Branson-like anachronism manifested as Club Piscopo opened for business. Fortunately (?), cameras were there to document this fleeting event.

    There is a part of me that doesn't want to beat on this, that can see everyone involved seems to recognize this as the comedic equivalent of a walking ghost. But it's a very small part.

    Predominantly, it's 52 minutes of Joe…

  • Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

    Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

    ★★★½

    The Gaos are back, and evolving at an alarming rate. Fortunately, Gamera's back to take care of this escalating threat. Unfortunately, Gamera's kind of a dick these days, wreaking utter devastation for every Gaos it destroys. Meanwhile, out in the country, a young girl plots vengeance on Gamera for the death of her cat, Iris...as well as her parents...by raising a floating squidsnail she found in the woods.

    Gamera: Revenge of Iris is a little slower moving than the previous…

  • Near Dark

    Near Dark

    ★★★★

    Boy meets girl. Girl bites boy. Boy gets adopted into a cobbled together family of murderous vampires, roaming the midwest, living hand-to-mouth on whatever unfortunate blood bags happen to cross their path.

    Near Dark, on the surface, feels like a Stephen King synopsis, a vampire tale with its mythos tweaked just a bit, but instead of New England, it's transplanted to Tornado alley to give things more wide-open sense of desolation. It's a fairly simple, straightforward story told really well,…
