I am proud to announce that Ruthless Reviews will be immediately filling a big hole in its massive 3100+ movie review site, and this has been a long time coming. Devon, Ezra and myself will be reviewing one of the greatest franchises in camp horror movie history, the 3 Evil Dead movies by Sam Raimi. […]

The Flight Of The Phoenix (1965)

Director

Robert Aldrich

Cast

James Stewart
Richard Attenborough
Peter Finch
Hardy Kruger
Ernest Borgnine
Christian Marquand
George Kennedy
Ian Bannen
Ronald Fraser
Gabriel Tinte


James Stewart can be solidly forgiven for films like It’s A Wonderful Life because of efforts like Vertigo and this film, The Flight of the Phoenix. It is not a wonderful life, but it is a wonderful film, with top notch acting and dialogue that you would expect from a classic film. The Flight of […]

365 Days

Synopsis

Massimo kidnaps the girl of his dreams for a year to make her fall in love with him. A horrible movie is the result.

Director

Barbara Bialowas, Tomasz Mandez

Cast

Michelle Morrone
Anna Maria Seiklucka
Bronislaw Wroclawski
Otar Saralidze
Magdalena Lamparska
Natasza Urbanska

365 Days is currently the #1 movie streamed on Netflix. The movie poster that you see is the one that got me banned from Facebook. Yeah. Go figure. Anyway, the movie itself is exponentially more provocative than the poster and is just downright out and out porn. I don’t have anything against porn. I often […]

Uwe Boll’s finest and most tasteless movie

Director

Uwe Boll

Cast

J.K. Simmons
David Huddleston
Ewe Boll
Jackie Tohn
Vern Troyer
Brent Mendenhall

Yes, I’m doing it. At the insistence of my good friend Ted Barrus, I am reviewing an Uwe Boll movie. Uwe Boll is a legend for making tasteless movies that are virtually unwatchable. The movie Postal is his finest achievement. The only other movie that I’ve watched that comes close to Postal for sheer vulgarity, […]

Christmas In July -or- It’s Not Even July Yet: I’ll Do Anything To Get My Mind Off Of Covid & Assassination Of Blacks Edition (Even Christmas)

The Christmas Season is again over as a New Year approaches. Yet again, the imaginary and paranoid “War On Christmas” has failed to materialize, just like the last prediction of the Rapture. The Religiously Impaired™ will never learn, will they? Of course, that is not important now. What is important is a reflection on the […]

Netflix and Social Distancing?

Drastic times call for drastic measures. As a result around 20 percent of the global population is in a government-imposed coronavirus lockdown. It’s safe to say that now is not the time to slide into your matches’ DMs and see who’s up for Netflix and chill. But being stuck in a social distancing groundhog day […]

Director

Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia

Cast

Ivan Massauge
Zorion Eugileor
Antonia San Juan
Emilio Buale
Alexandra Masangkay
Eric Goode

*Mostly Spoiler Free Review* In most of the incarceration movies I have watched, food is one of the high water marks of the day. Convicts march to the chow hall, get their individual trays and portions, and sit and eat with their race or gangs. If they are in isolation or the hole, unit-dose trays […]

35 year-old teenagers squabble about killing all humanity with giant lobsters

Director

Tom Graeff

Cast

David Love
Dawn Bender
Bryant Grant
Harvey B. Dunn
Tom Graeff
King Moody

Oh boy, this is it. For decades I have fantasized about a movie that could be half as bad as some of Coleman Francis’s stinkers like The Beast Of Yucca Flats. Only for all the acting to be as spectacular as that of Tor Johnson, and a monster as convincing of the one in The […]

Giacomo Rossi Stuart

The Last Man On Earth is a B & W classic starring Vincent Price. It is a dark and depressing movie based on Richard Matheson’s novel, I Am Legend. This film has to be the basis for dozens of zombie movies, including the classic Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. I debated even watching this […]

Eddie Murphy was only 19 years old when he was tagged to play the convict conscripted by Jack, a renegade and reckless cop in San Francisco. Jack always stayed just a half a step ahead of losing his badge, and Reggie wanted to get out of jail. Even though Reggie Hammond was not a cop, […]
