Hostel (2004) – Film Sips

“Hostel”

Well, there were a few redeeming qualities in this torture porn flick from Eli Roth.  It has a really good misdirection/bait and switch. The make up and gore are outstanding. (By now you should all know my fondness for well executed gore. Pun intended.)  And the setting was beautiful.  I was expecting very little from the characters… and the plot. I got what I expected.  I guess it was good enough that I’m willing to check out Part 2.

Shark Killer (2015) – Film Sips

“Shark Killer”

Not really a “shark movie,” but it is an entertaining action flick.  I really enjoyed the beautiful and talented Erica Cerra, as Jasmine, and the comedic arrogance of Derek Theler’s, as Chase.  They had great chemistry.  It really starts picking up toward the end when Chase and Jake (Paul du Toit) begin revealing their back story.   Sadly, Arnold Vosloo’s talents are pretty much wasted in such a minor role.

All in all, a light entertaining action/thriller that happens to have sharks and eye candy.

Turbo Kid (2015) – Film Sips

“Turbo Kid”

For more information follow this link.

This Canadian/New Zealand indie film was a lot of fun. Featuring the iconic Michael Ironside, doing what he does best.   A movie that was written and filmed to seem as if it were shot in the 80’s and set in post apocalyptic late 1997. What a great concept! For the most part, really well done. Would have been better had they stuck to all practical effects. Though I did enjoy the “sploosh” when The Kid used the glove. Apple is an awesome character. “This is my Gnome Stick!”

This is totally worth watching, especially if you’re a fan of cheesy 80’s flicks.  It’s currently available on Amazon.
