i know a lot of adults went in having mixed thoughts about detective pikachu, some of my old friends from school thought it was decent, while most of my online friends would also agree that it was kinda of a blah movie, even without going the route of "pok'emon trainer aims to save the world" deal like the animated movies have all done.


army of darkness

i've never followed ebert's reviews all that much, but i can agree with him that army of darkness felt kind of like it was rehashing evil dead 2's humorous bits, much like back to the future part III it felt like the series was running out of steam, but i felt like it did a little better than back to the future III by not being as boring, stop motion skeletons never get old though, lol

3/5

Oliver Stone, who is a Vietnam veteran, gives us an illustration of the horrors of Vietnam. He also shows soldiers not only fighting against the enemies, but themselves.

A very true-to-life movie.

4 1/2 stars.

The last time I watched this was in 1994. I think it was on HBO at the time. Up until now, I never did watch it all the way through or even know what the name of it is. Feels weird having seen this after all these years.


Anyway, this is an intriguing alien movie. I certainly remember how creepy it was.


4 stars.


Notmally, Retrojunk members make threads asking other members to help them find movies they don't know the name of. I found this one on my own. Not bad, huh?

Terrordactyl (2016) 

A slacker leads the response when hundreds of mutant space pterodactyls invade earth.



Acting and script: sort of good, not very good, but I could see the passion the writer and actors had. A for effort. More intentional laughs than unintentional. The explanation of the cause of conflict,a tradition in science fiction, is weak. 

Production: Cheap CG, but at this stage of technology is mostly excusable. My biggest complaint is a small fire in an early scene before the action picks up is very obviously fake. They could have done that one for real. The monsters are about as serviceable as a PS2 game. The cast is small, a smart choice to work with a low budget. 



Watchably awful. 2/5. Comet TV (ch. 22.5) 11:00pm-1:00am

Kung Fu Hustle (2004) 



A wannabe street tough tries to join a notorious street gang terrorizing a poor village.



The first scene is a little silly and over-the-top. I expected it to be revealed as fake, like it was a stage production within the real story, but it was not. Slapstick and humor are sprinkled throughout the movie. The action and choreography are awesome. And there is a heartwarming story at the core. Meticulously constructed by writer/director/producer/star Stephen Chow, this movie was a real treat. 



5/5. Netflix
