Dellamorte Dellamore (1994)

CemetaryMan5

Looks good, sounds nice, has characters that you sympathize with.

Eye pleasuring special effects, the most wicked motorcycle – bus-horse-witnessed crash scene on Italian film, and 22-year old Anna Falchi.

The only thing to dislike, is the story line that feels out of sync, it’s like somebody shuffled comic strips from various Dylan dog  stories and spliced them into one movie.

The segments perfectly work separately, but as an unified film they are rather confusing. At the end of the film you find yourself, same as the main characters, at the end of a beautiful road to nowhere.

‘Dellamorte Dellamore” is not bad if a  cinematic-cemetery-one-night-stand is what you’re looking for.

Silk (1986) / Dune Warriors (1990)

Silk (1986) – Cec Verrell is Jenny Sleighton aka Silk, the smoothest cop in Honolulu,  she shoots, climbs, kills and loves. Unfortunately not so much stuff typical to a female characater.

‘ When the heat’s on no one’s smoother than ….’
The theme song is a typical ‘CH Santiago’ soundtrack ‘smash hit’
slk
Dune Warriors (1990) – a Mad Max 2  like post apocalyptic dessert adventure. Swords meet motorcycles and machine guns (the opening scene says it all), felt a bit like ‘7 samurai’ ; and David Carradine is in it.
Lets not forget Rick Hill, who was in ‘The Devastator’.

R.O.T.O.R. (1987)

I needed 5 attempts over the last year  to make it through the first 10 minutes of ROTOR, but the worst was still ahead of me.

Crazy dialog with weird punchlines, illogical scene placement and length,  a funny tinfoil robot in a tiny police hat, sound great…

…unfortunately all that is painful to watch.

The digital remaster on BD does not make it better.

One of the movies that you have more fun talking about than actually watching it.

The guy who player ROTOR played also 3 more characters (according to IMDB).

RLM made an episode of BOTW about it.

Camino (2015/16), Daylight’s End (2016)

Camino – definitely the better one of these 2 flicks, I expected it to be a crappy B movie, but got disappointed, it was quite good. The main character has a decent back story, the stunts and fights are very well performed by Zoe Bell herself, few good action scene ideas [few stupid ones as well, but not so many]. Quite a positive surprise.

Daylight’s End – even having Johnny Strong doesn’t make this movies stronger.  Main plot-line: people are shooting vampire like zombies all the time;  and when you think it is getting better for a moment it all goes back into the ditch. Less cgi- blood and cgi headshots please.

Karate Kill (2016)

The next film from Kurando Mitsutake, whose Gunwoman I adored;  I had less sympathy For  The Blind Wolf; Karate Kill however is a bit different that the 2 previous movies.

You could call it a martial arts mayhem / revenge film; Rolling thunder meets The street fighter.

The costumes of the cult members are almost taken out of ‘The Town that dreaded…’ this trick probably reduced the number of extras playing the bad guys.

The ‘Rolling Thunder’ hand will produce some laughs during the love scene.

The GoPro-psycho-face-close-ups are really creepy.

I recommend this movie.

Doomed: The Untold Story Of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four (2015)

Reminded me of the doc titled:

The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?

‘Doomed’ shows some interesting facts, and gives a fresh picture of making the F4 movie.
