They got rid of most of the fun

EliminatorsIt was perhaps inevitable that Empire Pictures would fold with efforts like Eliminators, having a high concept but pretty poor execution for the most part.

        Double-dipping

         

        This isn’t an official Roundtable entry – given that it was my entry for a different Roundtable – but the time seemed ripe for a Resurrected Review…

         

         

         

         

        BATTLE ROYALE (2000)

        …in which the only thing that sucks more than being an unappreciated middle-school teacher is being one of that teacher’s students…

              If it were only this fun in Mayberry

              SavagesDespite being confined to American television network standards in the early 1970s, Savages all the same manages to be an above average Dangerous Game retread.

                ChastityWhat’s wrong with Chastity? Quite a bit, though there are a few good things to be uncovered in the otherwise extreme expanse of mire.

                  The most deserving game

                   

                  So apparently there are people in the world whose idea of a good time is to go out and kill something. Guns, knives, crossbows, spears, hooks, traps—it’s all good, as long as an animal ends up dead.
                   
                  I don’t get it.
                   
                  Mind you…I come closer to getting it when the animal they’re hunting is selfish, greedy, violent, destructive and just plain ANNOYING.
                   
                  So join us as we examine some films that put Homo sapiens in the cross-hairs…

                    FOR GOD’S SAKE, SAVE THE BUDGERIGARS!!!!

                    .

                    CRASH LANDING (1958)

                    …in which double engine-failure over the Atlantic Ocean threatens the lives of a small mongrel dog and two dozen budgies.

                    Oh…and some people, I guess…

                    .

                    I have also copied over Jet Storm (1959) (apologies for the tasteless timing on that one) and Jet Over The Atlantic (1959).

                    .

                    (What can I tell you? I’ve been in a disastrous mood lately…)

                    .

                    I have further copied over Wolf Blood (1925), The Mysterious Island (1929) and Cobra Woman (1944); and there’s a new Et Al. post, in which decade-old horror steps aside to allow me clear some older thrillers and dramas off my hard drive.

                    .

                    Enjoy!

                    .
