MIX MANIA howdy country-boys'n girls!... this time we have again a variety of choices.... for everyone there's some- thing!... and if there's something you want to see in here then get off your lazy ass and take pen and paper or load one of those (aussie?) notewriters and begin typing/writing!.... this time we begin with only 1 review of a film.... ROBIN HOOD : PRINCE OF THIEVES (with kevin kostner,sean connery, ernest bourigine,....) this is a good remake of the old version ... but has lost some of its charm!... still the makers have chosen for a NON- NAKED SCENE... no running naked woman in here!... but we have to picture this in the middle ages!.... the film has a quite amazing begin and a not so amazing end, although the end sequence is so mighty exaggerated it becomes almost a COMEDIAN! and it is as the film contains some little funny things and does help you coming through the time!... this film takes over 2 hours and is NO real waste of time!.... i think it's not worth to get off your lazy ass and go and see him in the CINEMA but it wouldn't be a waste of money to rent him!... this film has a bit of everything (action,adventure,romance,....) but so had the 1ST version. so this movie is no real SMASHER, but a normal film!... RATING: 70/100 * NAKED GUN 2+1/2 well, this time we meet lt.frank drebin again... he gets involved with a lot of intrigues,corrupt state-officials, falling 1st ladies,e.o. bullshit. this film is full of action abit of sex (with priscilla presley) and a whole lotta humour!... the main clue is that some gangsters kid(?)nap dr.meinheim whose an energy-specialist. this film has ofcourse no real DEEP story as it's a 100 procent laugh-gas film!... it contains quite a lot of classic jokes but filmed and played quite good by leslie nielsen (frank) ,e.o.... my opinion about this film is: or you like the film a lot or you hate it and think it's too simple!... a lot of persons i talked too think the first movie (naked gun 1) was better ... others haven't seen NUMBER 1 (i'm one of them) and think this film is one hell of a good comic!... others say it's useless!... RATING: 95/100 * CHOICE OF LOVE this film is about the story of a guy who has cancer. he searches a young, attractive girl with nurse experience! (julia roberts). julia roberts needs money and goes up to his house (estate). she gets hired and after a while she falls in love with him... etc... this film is a definate 'CRY' film and if you have a girlfriend who really impersonates herself with the characters then you'll need more then 1 hanker- chiefs... this is a movie with good performances from the actors aswell as the actrices. a movie with a strong and sentimental story!... a real romantic film and a real good one in its class!... RATING: 80/100 * now some oldies.... DARKMAN ------- this movie is about a scientist who wants to invent skin-tissue... he gets up to the point when the skin- tissue is only able to stay on the body when it's used in the dark. at this point his girl gets involved in a corrupt thing at her work! she has a memo of some kind of secret project. she reveals to the corrupt guy that she hasn't got it with her and there- for the guy sents r.durant (a gangster) up to her boyfriends' lab. durant kills his assistent and almost kills her boyfriend as his lab is blown up. they all think he's dead but he ain't and he returns to his lab in which he makes some masks to revenge himself! ... this movie is quite good but NOT OUTSTANDING.... it contains some great shoot scenes and some other interesting things... this is a film you can miss but it's good pass-time... RATING: 60/100 * KICKBOXER II this is the sequel of a very good first film with j.c.van damme (a BELGIAN). this time another guy (in the film he plays the brother of kurt sloan (j.c. van damme)). he teaches kickboxing in a gym and when his best pupil leaves him the story starts... he gets in- volved with several things and leads him to the murderer of his brother.... eventually good wins above the bad ones. ... this is a modern 'GOOD VS BAD' story! this film is not so good as the first one as it contains less good hard action scenes. also the actors are not so well-built. also a good pass-time and again one you can miss! RATING: 50/100 * ROCKY V the final chapter... this time rocky looses all his money after his battle with drago (russian in rocky iv).... he returns to his old neighbourhood... he also meets a guy who wants to go and learn the trade and wants rocky as a trainer!... this guy becomes more im- portant for rocky then his son and it tears him apart when he sees that tommy 'THE MACHINE' gunn. (his pupil) gets taken away but duke (a black sport- promotor...a very rich corrupt guy!) ... t.gunn becomes champion of the world and as dukes' intention has always been to get rocky into the ring again he demands tommy to annoy rocky... so tommy does this and he challenges him to a fight... this is again a good and bad story and ofcourse this time it's the good ones who win it all (THE WINNERS TAKES IT ALL ).... good for all of us that this is the last rocky as this is certainly the badest one!... rocky iv was MUCH better! this one you can surely miss but for all rocky fans it's a good end to end an era.... RATING: 40/100 * BACKDRAFT this movie is about a fire department somewhere in america... a little kid can come with his dad (kurt russell) to a fire. it's an easy one they say and that's why he can come with.... he goes with and when they think the fire is down a gas explosion follows and the little kids'dad dies!... 20 years later that little kid joins his brother (also kurt russell) in that same department!... also axe (an old mate of their dad) is in that dep. then the real story begins and the killing starts. the rest you gotta see for yourself... this film has a very good story and is filmed the same. backdraft is surely the best film being released lately. i haven't told you much about the movie as that would spoil the film too much! the film contains comic scenes,horror scenes,thriller scenes.... a great movie!... RATING: 95/100 now some oldies coming up... * K9 ARACHNOPHOBIA GHOSTBUSTERS 2 SEA OF LOVE DELTA FORCE 2 k9... this film is about a crazy cop who is a bit like sledgehammer... he doesn't like partners but has to work together with a dog... he finds a similar dog (jerry lee). this dog helps him to bust a drugdealer!... the story isn't so special as it's a comic but quite a good one!... it contains some good scenes and the film is a good tip for a rent-off!... this film will make you laugh coz it is from time to time very funny!... it's perhaps not a top 10 film but surely one to see!.... RATING: 65/100 ghostbuster 2... they're back and stronger then ever!.... the film starts with a mother (the ex-girlfriend of peter venkman) who goes walking with her little baby... the baby with the carrier begins to role and when the mother runs after it,it goes faster and faster until it stops before almost being ran down by a truck!... then she asks her friends (the ghostbusters) to help her out and find what the cause is!... the cause will be found right in the museum where she's working!... the story ends happily. this film is NOT as good as the 1st and surely one to miss as only a few scenes are worth to see!... ofcourse a spooky one but it surely failed as a comical film. RATING: 40/100 sea of love... 2 murders are commited! 2 murders which are similar to each other!... that's why 2 policmen work together to solve this case!... the real film begins when the 2 police- men come after the fact that it's all caused by some adverts from guys who are searching for a girl and who use a little rime to attract them. the 2 policemen are convinced it's a girl and they do the same!... the film is quite good made as it contains everything a good police/ action film takes but only the action is missing a bit... you could say it's a modern thriller/police movie!... it has a nice clue but after all it's not a brilliant film!... still it's worth to see..(even when it is only for the girl...haha)(yes, i know i'm a sexist). RATING: 60/100 delta force 2... the story continues!... 2 army guys have to find some federal agents who are held hostage in san carlos... the country of a drugbaron... they have to fight against some hard winds but ofcourse some survive!... the hero (chuckie norris) wins the battle!.. a damned shit movie if you compare it with the first!... it contains some (not so much) action scenes and again this is a HOLLYWOOD FLOP... RATING: 30/100 arachnophobia... the name tells it all! this movie is about spiders!... it all begins with an expedition in south america... the photographer dies as a result of a spider-bite!... but the other expedition members don't know that... and they also don't know that a spider is being transported back to home base (usa).... the corps is sucked empty and the spider climbs out of the coffin... the spider runs down a barn. the spider multiplies and becomes a cocoon. the spiders begin to kill... it's a thrilling story as spiders are mostly NOT WANTED by the people... the film itself contains some bizarre moments and altough they said it's a funny movie... i can say it's not so funny... but it's a good film and one to see!... it's worth to hire. RATING: 70/100 well, as i'm no real FILM EXPERT i will now let the master of vhs swapping GRAPPLE/WOW take the keys to guide you through some REAL new releases!... be prepared because he's deadly..... * TERMINATOR II (by einstein) the story begins with a view of a battle field in the year 2048. space machines are flying through the dark sky and ground-troops namely t1000 are killing the humans!... sarah connor (linda hamilton) explains her story!... and then the real story begins with the coming of 2 terminators! 1 good one (the old model: arnold schwarzenegger = terminator 1) whose the protector of john connor and 1 bad guy (the t1000)... ofcourse this is a classical confrontation the good and the bad or was it the beauty and the beast?... anyhow, the result is a clash of fights,explosions,gunfights,. ... really EXTRA-ORIDINAIRY.... this film is said to be one of the most expensive ones and god i believe it as trucks, buildings, cars, helis,....etc. explode frequently!... this film is one NOT to miss!.. a really smasher!... anyhow, it's full of action NO romance but hardcore action and perhaps a sad end!... which makes it almost impossible for a THIRD terninator ... so i guess this was the FINAL SEQUEL ... RATING: 95/100 well, that was the mix mania of this month. we could have named this chapter film-reviews, but as we won't review every month some films, we just called this chapter mix-mania... well, we hope you have enjoyed reading this, press FIRE now to go to the main- menue...
