Death Is Only Another Portal: Mortal Kombat (2021) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 18 days ago on Entertainment -  Video games are notoriously hard to adapt to the screen. The type of story works in short bursts or as cut-scenes, or depending on how old the game is in a paragraph in an instruction manual, is hard to expand on. Conversely, story-heavy games often have 30-40 hours to use to flesh out characters and narrative and this has to be condensed onto a feature length film. Either way, filmmakers have their work cut out for them.Mortal Kombat is a franchise that started out as a campy and ultra-violent Western alternative to Japan's Street Fighter series, that over the course of eleven mainline games (and various spin-offs) has started to take itself comparatively more serious. For whatever reason, this newest adaptation for the most part ignores this evolution and plants the majority of th

Vaughan. Initially announced way back in 2018, the film has been on the back burner for three years now. Gu

Rock Docs: Mean Man - The Story of Chris Holmes (2021) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 8 days ago on Entertainment - Most viewers/listeners will remember heavy-metal guitarist Chris Holmes from the second installment of Penelope Spheeris’ legendary music documentary series The Decline of Western Civilization.  Featuring a notorious episode with the former lead W.A.S.P. guitarist splayed out fully clothed on an inflatable chair before his mother in the swimming pool in a drunken stupor as he pours bottles of vodka down his throat.  The scene people remember over others in the film represents a moment cloaked in heavy metal rock music urban legend mystique with many calling bluff to an “act” while others say he really was downing booze like no tomorrow.  It spoke heavily to Chris Holmes’ own struggles with addiction and in a telling scene of Holmes rewatching the scene years later we s

New Releases: Sharks of the Corn (2021) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 28 days ago on Entertainment - Trash cinema is a blessed genre unto itself.  Tom Ritter's absolutely insane opus, Sharks of the Corn is a pinnacle of low budget horror.  It's impossible not to be reminded of Wes Craven's horror epic Shocker when viewing, the film is over two hours and weaves not so complex threads together to create a wonderfully putrid amalgam of sex, spies, cultists, corn, and sharks.  Featuring a plethora of hilarious kill scenes, basement level special effects, and an undeniable love for all things horror, this is a charming homage to the many reasons we love movies.  Sharks are manifesting in the corn fields of Druid Hills, killing man, woman, and child.  A police chief, a shady criminal, a journalist, and a serial killer converge on the fields in a race against
