Never Dead, TheNever Dead, The (Phantasm) (1979)Recommended

3 stars (Good Enough) Draining.

Death ProofDeath Proof (2007)Recommended
1 star (Turkey) Tarantino tries desperately hard to make a cult movie in the vein of American International Cinema, but winds up with a clunky bore fest. Totally unsexy too. The only enjoyable aspect is Zoe Bell\'s New Zealand accent.
Inglourious BasterdsInglourious Basterds (Inglorious Bastards) (2009)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) Pointless and pretentious, and proof for those who think Tarantino has been a waste of time since Jackie Brown.
DVD $15 $7.50, $24.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
Wolf CreekWolf Creek (2005)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Annoyingly stupid victims undermine the effectiveness somewhat but otherwise the nasty horror elements are in tact. Those who enjoy movies such as Hostel and Eden Lake will enjoy it.
DVD $34.95
Eden LakeEden Lake (2008)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) A nasty piece of work that is very effectively done.
DVD $29.95
Escape from AlcatrazEscape from Alcatraz (1979)
4 stars (Very Good) As always, the Siegel/Eastwood combination delivers the goods in this well directed, well paced prison escape movie.
DVD $20 $15
