Edge of Tomorrow

★★★☆ – (2014) – A reluctant soldier is forced to relive his dying day over and again in order to figure out how to save the world from an alien invasion. A successful blend of Groundhog Day and Starship Troopers that has plenty of innovative ideas to call its own despite combined ideas. A tad dry in the area of soul, but packs in plenty of action wallops atop some truly humorous moments.

Deathstalker II: Duel of the Titans

★★☆☆ – (1987) – A warrior and a princess aim to reclaim her kingdom from a clone created by an evil magician. There’s a goofy charm persistent throughout, which is a major saving grace since this is pretty dry even with the campy tone. Swords, sorcery, and zombies and in supply, but the plot sustaining them is a bit too thin.

Robo Vampire

★½☆☆ – (1988) – A murdered cop is resurrected as a cyborg to take on a vampire amid a drug war. Works sort of well when dealing with the ridiculous horror aspects, but most of this involves stunningly dull action scenes and character interactions. Manages to amuse on occasion, but is more often prone to bore.
