“The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies” feels less like a movie and more like the third act of a movie, being almost entirely based around a single awesome battle. You might find it to be shallow...because it is...but it's certainly not 'slow'.
"Spookies" can be seen as a fun and spooky creature feature, an unintentionally hilarious example of 'so bad, it's good', an intentionally hilarious send up of creature features or just a bad creature feature which tries too hard to be hilarious. My reluctance to take a side stems from me feeling...well, that "Spookies" is all the above.
The Creepy Bald Guy grows hair so he can tear it out in frustration while reviewing his most difficult subject yet! But more importantly, can he pronounce Zenith's name correctly? The answer is a big N O, which spells yes...
"Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon" provided quality entertainment, seducing its audience with a never-ending stream of special effects, kung fu and suspense. But wave goodbye to anything resembling substance, because this prequel only offers eye candy.
"Terror Train" might be another slasher of the early 80's, but it's not JUST another slasher of the early 80's. It has some good twists, a strong cast and favors suspense over gore. It's not likely going to end up on anyone's top 10 favorite slashers list thanks to some migraine inducing flaws, but I liked it.
"Crippled Avengers" is unusual because its reputation expands beyond being a quirky kung fu flick starring the Venom Mob. Its influence extend into other genres and the goofiness has lead some viewers to erroneously claim that it's a 'so bad, it's good' chop socky flick. The core concept is campy enough that the idea of legless, armless, blind and deaf people fighting almost overshadows its exceptional martial arts choreography.
"Zombie" did the impossible: Make its titular monster kind of scary. Their nasty appearances and the grotesque ways they'd kill people got under my skin. It also just happens to be a really cool movie, delivering a memorable atmosphere, endearing score, awesome gore effects and my beloved 'zombie vs shark' sequence.
