Ahh Arnold, corny and campy 80's action movies aren't quite the same without you or Sly or even Dolph hanging around and this one about a violent game show which puts prisoners through a gauntlet …

As I said before, the character of The Incredible Hulk is like instant pudding: impossible to screw up.  There can't be anything too difficult about a man who rages out into a giant green monster …

Reportedly 100 Million people tuned into The Day After when it debuted in 1983 and many had they're lives changed by it.  This tale of escalating nuclear tensions plays like a horror movie perfectly …

To this day, this one dystopian future action movie still has a reputation as being one of the most notorious movies ever.  At the time, it had the biggest budget for a movie and the results on …

Ever see a movie that looked so dumb, you heard was dumb and then you see it and it isn't all that dumb?  Step on up to see Sly and Snipes tear apart the crapsaccharine world of a future LA.   …

The 6th Day
I should hate The 6th Day for one of the reasons I disliked Raw Deal in that it took Arnold Schwarzenggar and tried to make us think he's just a regular guy and who's even undercover while doing …

Lifeforce is one of those movies you hear about for the same reason, the naked woman who was in it.  Kinda like how Total Recall is remembered largely for the three breasted hooker.  I finally …

Alien Resurrection
Think back to 1997.  Did you really want to see another Alien movie?  The first was a horror/sci fi masterpiece and the sequel was a suspensful action classic.  The third was such a mess …

Heres a quick story about how much I love the original Escape from New York.  I bought it on VHS and then the next year on barebones DVD and then a few years later updated the BB DVD with a special …

Men in Black II
I saw the first Men In Black film in theatres and remembered hearing about that film while the world was ooohing and ahhhing Independance Day, both films which feature Will Smith.  I thought that …
reviewed X-Men (2000 film). August 03, 2010
Some people see the X Men as a lower rent version of the Fantastic Four, where many characters are just churned out for their one identifiable super power such as shooting lasers, flying and being furry.  …

Within the first half hour or so of this movie, we could see our hero:  Get yelled at by his boss, get stiffed on a bill delivering pizzas by a snotty receptionist, lose his job, get yelled at by …

My very first review here on Lunch was my ESSAY about this movie.  Lets cut to a more condensed hate of this blight on the Star Wars film series.  Please see that review "He was a good …

I just got done talking about the man who was once the epitome of movie villany and coolness, Darth Vader and how his star took a hit after the prequels came out and I couldn't look at him the same …

Forgive the parlance, but I can't think of a better name for an irresponsible man who gets loaded, straps on a suit of destructive armor and starts using his laser beams to trick shoot fruit and vases …
reviewed Avatar (2009 film). February 02, 2010
You take 12 years and what do you get?  James Cameron has given us a glossy and pretty looking movie that no matter how much sparkle is in the images, no matter how cool the visuals is nothing more …

Iron Man for all intents and purposes remembers the sole, number 1 rule of comic books and it's the rule that the X Men and Spiderman movies forgot about - to be fun.      Spiderman …

Batman Forever
I'm going to be honest, when I was younger this was my favorite Batman movie.  I liked the first two, but with a new director, the costumes, the wonderful toys and the sets were new, fun and different.   …

We need to have more movies out now "ruined."      How ironic is it that the best of all Star Wars movies is the one that elicited a tantrum from George Lucas and how he …

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
Out of all the Star Trek movies, this one aged the worst.  I still love the story and adventure and it's arguablly the finest of the original "odd numbered" movies.  However I …

Aliens is the only other movie in the Alien canon to have any real impact before the series grossly ran out of steam and imported the Predator to keep movies being made.      Picking …

Star Wars may have gotten the sci fi ball rolling in the 70's with a future that isn't always clean and where people don't always eat food pills, but Alien perfected it.  The computers …

Star Trek made a huge return in a big way at the end of the seventies with Star Trek: The Motion Picutre.  Talk for years about whether or not it was to be a TV series, to a made for TV movie …

It was a good five years in between Star Trek movies.  Insurrection was out in late 98 and Nemesis was out in 2002.  With that time off you could swear some creative juices would be flowing …

Star Trek movies have always been entertaining whether they are good (Wrath of Khan, Undiscovered Country) or bad (Generations, The Final Frontier) but all of them at least had a story that you only needed …
