Buy Answer This! on DVD

Rent Answer This! on Amazon Instant

Although Answer This! is very predictable, following the story beats of both genres it mashes together almost to a tee, it’s still worth watching thanks to its strong cast and more importantly its relatability and resonance.

Rent Hostel Part III on Amazon Instant

Hostel Part III marks the series’ first (and probably not last) foray into the straight to DVD realm and while you can definitely feel the difference in everything from the tone to the violence to the story, there are still some good moments that make it a worthwhile watch. Unless you’re a hardcore Hostel fan, that is. Then you might just end up pissed off.

Movie Review: ALIEN ARMAGEDDON (2011)

Posted by Jonathan Sullivan on December 6, 2011

Starring: Katharine McEwan, Don Scribner, Rochelle Vallese, Benjamin J. Cain Jr.

Written and Directed by: Neil Johnson

Distributed by: Phase 4 Films

Buy Alien Armageddon on DVD (or Blu-ray)

Rent Alien Armageddon on Amazon

Don’t judge Alien Armageddon by its cover; although it seems like a rip-off of both Cowboys and Aliens and Battle: L.A. it’s actually a work that feels completely of its own. Playing out like a trashy science fiction novel, writer/director Neil Johnson presents 90 minutes that is filled with interesting ideas, above average special effects, and more importantly decent acting. Unfortunately it goes a little overboard with both the information and the set up, slowing down the proceedings and it will most likely test the patience of any potential viewers. Those who stick with it though may be pleasantly surprised.
