April Apocalypse

IMDb Source

Part horror, part teen comedy, part romance. Artie is a teen that finally works up the courage to proclaim his life for April, when she decides to move away. After deciding to track her down, the movie sidetracks right into…..a zombie apocalypse. This movie is probably one of those watch once and forget about it later, but it wasn’t really all that bad. It’s not until the last 5-10 minutes do you get the answer to the question “Does he get the girl”

Typical zombie action, some minor cgi blood, and some laugh out loud moments; especially coming from Artie’s stoner friend, the priest/zombie slayer they come across, and “the annoying girl” from school.

My scores:
Language: 2/10
Nudity: 0/10
Gore: 1.5/1 (little bit of blood but that cgi only warrants an extra half point)
Characters in the story you really want to punch: 2/10
Should you watch this movie?: 4/10

Give it a shot, and just accept the movie for what it is.

Dark Angel (AKA I come in peace)

IMDb source

A little story about cops, an alien cop, drug dealers, and an alien drug dealer wielding a gun that shoots cds.

Dolph Lundgren and Brian Benben team up to take down an alien that is creating drugs from the endorphins of humans. This film has a decent amount of action, and practical special effects…. did I mention the drug dealing alien has a gun that shoots cds? I saw this years ago and that’s really the only part I initially remembered.

With flying discs, alien drugs, and quotes such as “I come in peace….. well you go in pieces asshole” and “what school did you go to?…. I went to the university of suck my dick!!” You know you can’t go wrong with this gem from the early 90’s.

My scores:
Action/explosions: 4/10
Buddy cop cliches: 5/10
Language 2/10
Gratuitous nudity: 1/10 (Random strip club scene)
Badass gun that shoots cds: 10/10
Should you watch this movie?: 6/10
