Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Run Time: 1:26
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-07-11
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: John Erick Dowdle
Cast: Ben Messmer, Stacy Chbosky, Ivar Brogger, Lou George, Michael Lawson, Samantha Robson

For all its skill at mimicry, it has nothing to say and no real story to tell. It’s as ephemeral as it is unpleasant – a rancid little curiosity whose impressions are easily flushed.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-01-30
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Stanley Donen
Cast: Michael Caine, Joseph Bologna, Michelle Johnson, Demi Moore, Valerie Harper

Viewed in 1984, "Blame it on Rio" was a bad movie. Viewed forty years later, the badness is overlaid by a strong creepiness factor.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-05-03
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence, Sexual Content, Profanity)
Genre: Science Fiction/Adventure
Director: Willard Huyck
Cast: Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones, Tim Robbins, Ed Gale, Chip Zien

This was a bad movie when it was released. It is a bad movie today. And it will continue to be a bad movie long after this planet ceases to exist.

Run Time: 1:42
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-05-14
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: William Malone
Cast: Stephen Dorff, Natascha McElhone, Stephen Rea, Jeffrey Combs

It hurts to search for logic in the wreckage of a screenplay that feels like it was cut into tiny pieces and glued back together in some random order.

A promising premise, once compromised by an inadequate director, inept actors, horrific dialogue, and a host of other problems, is unable to rise to the surface.

Run Time: 1:33
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-05-10
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Musical
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Cast:

"Staying Alive" is only about trying to breathe life into the then-fading career of John Travolta and making money off a recognizable title.

Run Time: 1:31
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-02-29
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy
Director: John Landis
Cast: Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Curry, David Hayman, Ronnie Corbett

Fans of the Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright collaborations may find the material to be engaging but there is little to convince contemporary viewers that this is a forgotten gem.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Home Release Date: 2023-09-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Henry Bean
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Billy Zane, Theresa Russell, Summer Phoenix

An interesting film for the things it does right but, by the time the end credits rolled, I was unable to fight back a sense of frustration with its limitations.

One of those films that, despite its overt shoddiness, presents an opportunity to absorb something supremely silly without having to devote much attention to the proceedings.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-01-23
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Seth Porges, Chris Charles Scott
Cast: John Hodgman, Bill Benneyan, Jim DeSaye, Daron Fitch, Joe Hession, Mark Johnson, Chris Gethard, Bob Krahulik

The kind of nostalgia-bait that might cause a pause if one was to stumble upon it while channel surfing.
