– (1991) – A sorceress abducts the winners of a sword fighting tournament and turns them into a stone army. Sounds like a goofy good time, but too much of this focuses of one droll fight after another. As repetitive as a film can get, but has enough corniness and nudity to make the watch an unharmful one.
– (1988) – A warrior and a princess set out to claim one of two stones before an evil ruler gathers both. Has a few eye opening moments of the lamest varieties, but most other progressions are mundane. Doesn’t last long and moves relatively fast, although the only highlights are ones the creators shouldn’t be proud of.
– (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.
– (1983) – A warrior quests for magical items and a princess in a realm of monsters and other warriors. Has an abundance of fighting and nudity, but that’s about it. The plot is particularly bland, and when all is said and done most everything is easy to forget. However, this does work well as an 80’s time capsule.
– (2005) – A journalist and a reporter head to Romania to investigate a cult that can summon deadly storms. Reaches absurd levels of stupidity five minutes in and rarely disappoints in the realm of idiocy thereafter. A bit too slow to hold in higher bad movie regard, but a lot of what occurs between dialog, acting, F/X, and plot points is truly absurd.
– (2019) – A girl once forced to live her dying day over and again is pulled into a dimension where she’s forced to live her dying day over and again. While this doesn’t necessarily duplicate the original verbatim, it does feel awfully familiar and has an equally lame outcome. However, more fun is had this time around, thanks to the zanniness, though some comedy and schmaltz feel forced.
– (2018) – College students renovating a remote sorority house encounter a leprechaun who was killed nearby 25 years prior. Though some humor works, and the brushes with darkness are sometimes commendable, too much of this is silly and rather annoying. Mostly drab and unoriginal, but occasionally does something noteworthy.
– (2018) – Orphans at odds with each other eventually face off against a demon who’s bent on wiping out humans. Has some horror activity toward the end, but getting there is troublesome and not worth the wait. The editing is flimsy, the acting isn’t on par with the era, and the pace is abominably slow.
– (2018) – Those who intend to end shark storms travel through time in order to save humankind. Despite the busy structure and occasional brushes with humor, the sense that this has all been seen before is overwhelming. Nothing occurs that didn’t already transpire in previous entries of this mostly awful series.
