Reason to Watch

Martin Scorsese's intimate epic about money, sex and brute force is a grandly conceived study of what happens to goodfellas from the mean streets when they outstrip their wildest dreams and achieve the pinnacle of wealth and power.

Synopsis

A television network cynically exploits a deranged former anchor's ravings and revelations about the news media for its own profit, but finds that his message may be difficult to control.

Reason to Watch

Network can be faulted both for going too far and not far enough, but it's also something that very few commercial films are these days. It's alive.

Synopsis

As corruption grows in 1950s Los Angeles, three policemen - one strait-laced, one brutal, and one sleazy - investigate a series of murders with their own brand of justice.

Reason to Watch

Synopsis

Three women make an emergency landing on a planet plagued with a fatal disease, but are captured by dictator Overdog. Adventurer Wolff goes there to rescue them and meets Niki, the only Earthling left from a medical expedition. Combining their talents, they try to rescue the women.

Reason to Watch

Michael Ironside plays the main villain, ‘Overdog’, underneath all the heavy prosthetics make-up, and he truly offers a great camp performance, in a costume that I had to wonder how the hell he actually got around in it.

Synopsis

Several escaped prisoners and two hostage women along with a sheriff's deputy find themselves trapped in a mine shaft, where a cannibalistic mutant is hunting them for food.

Reason to Watch

It's fair to say that a lot of garbage was made in the 1980s and trapped alive is a good example of this. It's a cheesy, low budget piece of nonsense that attempts to combine the thriller and horror genres but does neither successfully which leads to an interesting viewing experience.

Synopsis

Alex, a burned out LA cyborg cop, is forced by commissioner Farnsworth to find his former cyborg partner and lover Jared who's about to deliver sensitive data to cyborg terrorists who wish to wage war against humans. Is he being played?

Reason to Watch

A pretty glorious work of low budget creativity and vision, even if the reality is that it's no Blade Runner or Terminator.

Synopsis

11-year-old Davey, whose mother is dead and whose father doesn't spend nearly enough time with him. So the boy loses himself in video games--and even has an imaginary friend, a super-resourceful secret agent. When he accidentally comes into possession of a spy group's secret plans, and winds up on the run from them, he must learn to rely on himself and his imaginary pal to save his skin. But, in the end, Dad proves to be his real hero.

Reason to Watch

This movie is never as adept or perceptive as you'd like it to be, but it's got what members of the critical fraternity traditionally characterize as "a little something."

Synopsis

A group of teenagers, taking a nocturnal hayride come across the grave of a man. Little did they know that this deceased man is a zombie. One by one, the actual living are falling victim and becoming zombies. Eventually there are zombies everywhere, and someone needs to stop them, but who?

Reason to Watch

Flesheater is a hilariously clumsy Zombie flick in which none other than Bill Hinzman served as writer, director and star. The name will not necessarily ring a bell, the man is known for his small, but highly memorable role in George A. Romero's 1968 milestone "Night Of The Living Dead". This is an absolutely inept mess.
