Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever

?

Ballistic: Ecks vs. SeverListening to the horrendous ’80s closing theme I’m once again shaking my head at the ridiculous subtitle of this big budget DTV release. If Vern does decide to review this I might have to go off the grid for a while…

Color of Night

?

Color of NightI know Vern’s seen it before because he references it in ”Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer,” but I for one think this behemoth mess of action movie, psychological thriller, gratuitous softcore, and outrageous red herrings is one for the ages and deserves an in-depth look at the insanity. Plus, Lance Henricksen, Brad Dourif, Soctt Bakula, and Bruce Willis’s willis

Passenger 57

New review: http://outlawvern.com/2012/12/12/passenger-57/

Passenger 57I’d love to see Vern review this Wesley Snipes vehicle, which also has a fantastic villain performance from the very underrated Bruce Payne.

Sushi Girl

?

I just saw this last night and it’s a great…. well, I’m not sure what category to put it in. It’s kind of a crime thriller with some elements of horror and action and even some pretty good comedy. And the whole thing has a somewhat grindhousey aesthetic. It has a good cast with Tony Todd and Mark Hamill being the standouts. (also Michael Biehn, Danny Trejo and Jeff Fahey have small but memorable cameos)

I have to say that Mark Hamill is the most pleasant surprise in this movie. This is easily the best performance of his career (and if it weren’t for a certain space opera, it would be his most memorable). The dude is so creepy and weird and scary and funny all at the same time. He was just awesome.

The whole thing is about a gang of criminals who pulled off a diamond heist together, but the diamonds disappeared and they all suspect each other, and you don’t know who to trust until the very end. It mostly takes place in one location, except when they flash back to the heist. The whole thing has a great non-linear structure and it constantly builds tension. There’s bloody violence, torture, nudity, a sweet car crash, kabuki masks, a guy snorting coke through a rolled up picture of his 5-year-old son. This movie has everything!

If you’re still not convinced, check out the trailer:

For full disclosure, I have to tell you that I went to school with the director, but that’s not why I’m recommending this movie. I’m recommending it because it’s badass, it’s a hell of a good time, and I think it’s right up your alley, Vern.

AND you can watch it RIGHT NOW on the video-on-demand thingy on your cable box (assuming you have one of those).

Chronicle

?

ChronicleI’d suggest Chronicle, recent DVD/Blu Ray release for the following reasons:

1. Set in Seattle

2. It’s a fauxumentary, but not really. The camera footage isn’t presented like it’s ”found”. It’s more like a movie where all the shots just happen to be from the POV of cameras. So while it’s a contrivance on a technial level, it’s not really on a story level…except for that one scene where that girls is filming her front door for some unexplained reason. They also manage to incorporate the gimmick into it pretty well, AND don’t let the fact it’s meant to explicitly be filmed in-story stop them from actually presenting the visuals in a coherent and sometimes INNOVATIVE(at least for the genre) manner.

3. Despite its low budget, I was really impressed with the effects work, and think it’s got some of the best flying in a movie I’ve ever seen.

4. I like the friendship of the three main guys, though admittedly, it does get a bit predictable at the end how things pan out.

5. Psychic Finger Gun!
