    The Delinquent

    ★★★★

    I pretty much loved "The Delinquent". With a substantial leading role for Shaw Bros. regular Wang Chung ("Police Force"), it's one of a slew of revenge pics set in modern day, early 70's Hong Kong that the studio cranked out during the period.

    Wang Chung (insert 80's pop duo joke here) plays Chung, a put upon delivery boy who reveals his impressive martial art talents when bullied by local thugs. Unfortunately, sticking up for himself has led to him being…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    Peter, you're struggling to have everything you want while the world tries to make you choose.

    A bona fide cinematic gift for Spider-Man fans everywhere. 

    Bullet point early review/random thoughts (no spoilers)…

    • Hats off to Jon…

    Shot on 16 mm for a paltry $25,000, and mounted by a swath of first-timers behind and in front of the camera, you can feel the enthusiasm from the cast and crew leaping off the frame. Cribbing from cinematic influences such as “Alien” and “The Blob”, this is simply pure, lean, beastie feature fun. Shot in…

    Upgrade

    ★★★★

    "Upgrade" is the R-rated, violent, sci-fi actioner you didn't know you wanted in a Summer Movie season filled with sequels, super heroes and female centric comedies.

    Early in the film, a mechanic (Logan Marshall-Green) and his wife are beaten and robbed...leaving her dead and him paralyzed. He agrees to an untested state-of-the-art surgery that implants into him an artificial intelligence called STEM. It allows him to walk again, but it also gives him enhanced abilities. When the A.I. detects a…
