Alluc The Blackout
Gross and outrageous movie about a loner who is taught how to turn himself into a girl, by doing this he gets closer to the girls in the local school and gradually kills them one by one. There is the plot, pure and simple, acting is of a fairly low standard and the sound quality is variable, but it never seems to take itself seriously and therefore its a laugh, if not intentional.
Watch if you like low budget rubbish rather than the high budget rubbish pedalled by Hollywood as entertainment for the masses.

The Invisible Man Alluc (2020)
Release: February 28, 2020
Alluc The Invisible Man
Whatever its deficiencies may be, "The Swiss Conspiracy" answers at least one question: which of the two famous sex kittens of the 1960s aged more gracefully into the 1970s, Senta Berger or Elke Sommer? The definite answer: Senta. She looks very beautiful in this movie. There is an obvious romantic mismatch between her and David Janssen (who frankly looks old enough to be her father, although he was only about a decade older in real life), and the script remains murky from beginning to end, but the location shooting around Switzerland, a couple of well-done action sequences, and a diverse supporting cast (Ray Milland and David Hess in the same movie?!) help compensate somewhat. ** out of 4.

Alluc Brahms: The Boy II
An all-around fun movie for the adventurous and imaginative. The Disney channel used to air this film regularly in the 1980's and I made sure to watch it each and every time.
This is a great family film that is especially fun for young boys (what little boy doesn't want to be an astronaut or a knight? How about BOTH!?). Just be sure your kids see this one before they become cynical from being corrupted by the numerous plotless special-effects laden films of today.
Additionally, this is a great way to introduce kids to the literary world by providing them with the film's inspiration: Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Aurthur's Court."
Director: William Brent Bell
Cast: Katie Holmes, Owain Yeoman, Christopher Convery, Ralph Ineson, Anjali Jay, Oliver Rice, Natalie Moon, Daphne Hoskins, Joely Collins, Ellie King, Joanne Kimm
The action of "Hanna D.-La Ragazza del Vondel Park" by Rino DiSilvestro takes place in various seedy areas of Amsterdam.20-year old Ann Gisel Glass plays a young woman who visits her alcoholic mother(Karen Schubert who would later star in porn films to support her own drug addiction)and begins to delve into the world of prostitution and heroin addiction.The film mixes delicious sleaze with drama as Hanna D. meets many drug addicts and goes berserk from goes drug withdrawal symptoms.There is plenty of sex and full-frontal nudity in "Hanna D." and some nasty drug usage,but if you want realistic Italian drugsploitation flick watch "Amore Tossico"(1983)first.7 anal drug vials out of 10.

Years later, he gets the chance to take back his life when he is asked to coach the struggling basketball team at his alma mater.

The name of the show caught my attention as I was scrolling through my TV app on my phone. Since the first episode I've been so intrigued by the entire cast. The ladies of the show are very unique, full of personality, charismatic, beautiful, stylish, and are so open. I think it's a refreshing take on love, compassion, friendship, and communication. Jack Daniels is very encouraging in his tone of voice, it makes me happy for everyone that is apart of this endeavor. I'm glad this show exist! I don't watch the new episodes until the weekend so my mind and time can be free to embrace every word. I hope the show continues with the current cast because I've grown fond of all of them individually. Granted this show is based on a class therefor I know it will come to an end. Very glad I stumbled upon this I think every lady around the globe should watch.

Alluc Fantasy Island
In a film seemingly not supervised by a director, two California college roommates, Chuck (Tate Donovan) and Wally (Grant Heslov) take part in a vapid adventure obviously targeted at a barely pubescent audience. Chuck has an opportunity of which he has dreamed, to work for a large corporation where he will begin at $60000 per year, if he will complete a pre-employment assignment for the CEO (Robert Stack), a friend of Chuck's father. His duty is to deliver an expensive new Porsche, a birthday gift to the CEO's daughter in Lake Tahoe, but naturally complications occur due to Wally, the irresponsible friend of Chuck. Wally convinces Chuck to first utilize the Porsche as "bikini bait" in San Diego, where there is coincidentally a scheduled beauty pageant, and where the car is stolen. The manipulation of Chuck by Wally makes little sense throughout this affair, but sensible behaviour is not readily found within the script, as it would only interfere with pratfalls and bathing suit competitions. It is enough to mention, as ever with this type of film, a providential solution is found for personal relationship problems and that no one seems to mind if logic vanishes along the way. A payday is given to veterans Stack, Leslie Nielsen and Elizabeth Ashley, all of whom essentially create their roles, and a bright spot is a performance by funnyman Robert Klein, with his usual off-kilter derelict, in this instance an aging surfer. Poorly written and edited, this picture can yet claim freedom from any mean-spirited component, its most offensive facet being that the viewing of it is fundamentally a waste of time.
Director: Jeff Wadlow
Cast: Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Charlotte McKinney, Evan Evagora, Portia Doubleday, Michael Pe�a, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Kim Coates, Michael Rooker, Ryan Hansen, Austin Stowell, Jimmy O. Yang, Goran D. Kleut, Robbie Jones, Renee Murden
Sonic the Hedgehog Alluc (2020)
Release: February 13, 2020
Alluc Sonic the Hedgehog
The critics are being pretty harsh on this film, and yet they give high praise to such films like Role Models and Get Him to the Greek, so go figure. But I had a lot fun with Due Date, It was a fun slapstick misadventure, almost what we loved about The Hangover, so it is clear to say I don't agree with the critics on this one.
Peter(Robert Downey Jr) an architect looking to get home to his pregnant wife(Michelle Monaghan) who is expecting in a week. And when he gets on a plane, he quickly gets kicked off, when he gets into an unfortunate incident with Ethan(Zach Galifianakis) a pot smoking moron, and wanna be actor, who is obsessed with the show Two and a Half Men. When Peter is looking for new ways to get home. Ethan has a car and offers to drive him. Although it is against Peters better judgment, but feeling there is no other way, he goes with him. Will Peter make it on time for his child's birth, or will Ethan drive him nuts during this?
A lot of people said this is a Plane,Trains and Automobiles ripoff, but you know what who cares. This was a funny laugh out loud film. Downey and Galifianakis have funny chemistry, they just play off each other perfectly. Like The Hangover it is one entertaining misadventure, I say don't listen to the critics, see this movie and form your own opinion.

Alluc Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
A show that seems to take itself serious yet not serious at the same time. A perfect mix of stupidity and hilarity that will have you craving more. Jon Glaser does a perfect job capturing his character "Neon Joe" and all of the characters play a part in the show and aren't throwaways. The hilarious he-yump always seems to put a smile on my face no matter the context used and the multiple cameos are fantastic. If you enjoy cheesy comedy that involves werewolves and sexual antics this will not cease to amaze you.
If you're into shows like Delocated and Rick and Morty you'll thoroughly enjoy Neon Joe.

Alluc The Call of the Wild
Mulan was one of Disney's greatest films ever made with beautiful animation, excellent voice acting, intense action, and an entertaining story. So, when some of the Disney sequels came out at the time (Return of Jafar, Cinderella II, and Hunchback of Notre Dame II), I waited so desperately to see a sequel that would capture the magic of the original.
Sadly, my expectations were quite low when after the first 10-15 minutes of this film since it failed to be the same positive levels that made the original such a masterpiece and the characteristic was one of the few main problems of this sequel. I'll show you by contrasting the characteristic of the original and this sequel.
In the original, Mulan was a conflicted woman who was doing what is right for his family by protecting his father from getting himself killed. In this sequel, Mulan's personality is to now be a staunch feminist as she and Shang try to love each other. In the original, Mushu was a well-intentioned but slightly misguided sidekick who gave me some laughs with his comedic moments throughout the film. In this sequel, he's a selfish villain who attempts to break up the relationship between Mulan and Shang. In the original, Mulan's army buddies were hilarious and were quite enjoyable characters. In this sequel, they are now being one-dimensional characters repeating the same characteristic over and over again.
With the characteristic out of the way, there are a few good things about this movie. The voice acting is very terrific and did their best with the material they've been given and the animation, while below the original's standards, is obviously quite good and is the best animation I've seen in a Disney direct-to-video sequel this far.
Sadly, those two positive aspects got suffered by it's predictable story (with some overused clichés from other new direct-to-video sequels) and it's uninspiring message about "Following your heart" which makes it a little less entertaining for children and their adults.
Although, not a horrible sequel (unlike Cinderella 2, which was by far the worst direct-to-video sequel I have ever seen), Mulan II lacks the heart of the original and has a uninspiring message that just doesn't measure up. I'm sure the kids will enjoy it, but in terms of direct-to-video sequels, the adults might have a hard time remembering this.

Alluc The Photograph
This movie combines style, gunplay, a compelling story, deep characters, detailed visuals, and a wonderful jazz score. A+
To be fair though, you must be at least a little familliar with the series to fully appreciate this movie. The series itself is a masterpiece; in my opinion one of the greatest television series of all time. The dub is a cut above most imported anime. Dialogue is often underapreciated in an animated series, so dubbing companies will be indiscreet with selecting voice actors. Bebop's dub, however, is very close to the original script and the voice acting is quite impressive. None of the jokes or subtleties were lost in the translation.

Hard Time is an excellent film!It's filled with great action sequences,has a good plot,the cast is amazing,and this film could easily be a sequence for 1981's Sharky's Machine.Burt Reynolds is one of the most talented actors i've ever seen,and his been there presence helps to compose with surgical precision his character,a hard,though and implacabe cop!the time has passed,but Burt Reynolds still has that look in his eyes that makes everybody shake!this film doesn't even look like a television movie!no,it looks like a real movie,a cinema movie!what we see here is the kind of movie that doesn't offer to the audience easy solutions,instead,this film is complex and thrilling!we have that feeling that makes cinema one of the best things of the world,we are involved by the story.Burt Reynolds made a brilliant comeback,after Boogie Nights!i can't wait for his next ones:Stringer,The Progenitor,and Deliverance 2!just a suggestion:wouldn't it be nice to see Sharky's Machine 2? and how about to cast,for this film,Laura Linney,Reese Witherspoon and Tom Selleck? Congratulations,Burt!you're still the best!and Hard Time is the best thriller i've seen.

Alluc The Lodge
The series started in the year 1966, was later adapted into another series in 1988, and has now adapted for the third time into 2015 and onward today.
The sextuplets Osomatsu, Karamatsu, Choromatsu, Ichimatsu, Jyushimatsu, and Todomatsu have now matured into fully grown adults from only knowing them before in their childhood years. However, they still have yet to grasp reality itself as they are still lazing around in their parent's house completely unemployed, and continuously depending on their parents for support over most of the shenanigans they either bump into, or create themselves.
Many of the interactions these brothers make with one another often end up quite humorous at times, but other times you may also be more focused on trying to figure out what's even going on in the first place. There are even times when this show gets serious with the audience about what they're portraying, often times to a point where you may even shed a tear or two.
The setting and atmosphere themselves seem pretty original and well liked, even if it isn't as detailed or realistic when you compare it to something like "Your Name." Then again, (you don't often see this in most animes) there are even times when the animation styles change themselves in more than one way. Sometimes they could go from a separate animation year style, to 2D or 3D style, and even to live action style if they wanted to.
I really liked the sort of "totally the same, but completely different" vibe from these 6 brothers all throughout the anime. All of them may look the same, but overtime you may even be asking yourself, "the way they get along, how the heck are these people related?" They basically all have so many separate characteristics, train of thoughts, physical and emotional traits that within the first 5 episodes, you could already easily tell the difference between all of them.
Overall a very funny anime most of the time, the story elements change most of the time so there's really no specific way to think about it unfortunately, and I would definitely recommend this anime to anyone who is looking for another good and wacky comedy to get into.

I'm speechless, just speechless.
I checked out this documentary because it somehow struck a chord with me in some resemblance of True Detective.
Only thing, this is real, which makes it so much more frightening.
I sat through all episodes on end, while rewinding bits to get details I missed.
Had it been fiction, it would have come off as too far out.
Most engaging and chilling piece of documentary I've ever seen bar none.
I'm still shaken and really disturbed.

Alluc I Still Believe
The beginning handful of episodes showed promise, but the writing has galloped downhill into a swamp of snark and sarcasm and cliché.
The females tend to be emotionally immature sexual aggressors without warmth or empathy...almost interchangeable. I think we must have a lot of male writers on the staff who are of the type who do not interact comfortably with women In Real Life. The females, for the most part, are Mean Girls.
For some reason, the show's stylists have almost all the women with straight long hair, uniformly un-styled. There is a sameness to their looks as well as their personalities.
"Alice" is identified as a "nerd" by (obviously nerdy) heavy black glasses frames. Her short stature and matronly bosom are unflatteringly dressed in tight-waisted full-skirted dresses that bell out, with lots of pleated fabric. This is an unkind look for her.
The male lead stutters every other word, avoiding eye contact. Now Hugh Grant can get away with this, as he is a better actor, but in our lead actor, it seems painfully mannered. The character has become as insufferable as Louis in Rice's Vampire Chronicles. As he is now believed about the existence of an alternative world, there is no reason for his aura of general mopiness. He seems to pity himself more than we can.
The dialogue is inane and does little to reveal character or move the story forward; just expository and unnatural speechlets. Everyone is dreadfully earnest. The storytelling is disjointed. The dialogue is painful and tries too hard to be hip. We know how that generally works out. The characters all seem to be unwilling or unable to express themselves directly. (Snark, simper, sigh, eyeroll, insert linguistic meme here...)
Julia, The Beast, and Eliot are the characters of interest here. I feel for the actors who are portraying them, stranded in this morass.
My level of disappointment is great, as the books are rich with material. They deserve better treatment than this bad high school play.

Without a doubt one of the all-time single most sublimely shoddy'n'stupid shot-in-the-Phillippines low-budget kung-fu gore/horror/zombie/cannibal cheesy Grade Z exploitation trash masterpieces to ever ooze its divinely dopey way onto celluloid.
A bunch of evil, leering, impishly demented killer monks led by the always delightful Vic Diaz reside in seclusion on a remote island and devour the flesh of beautiful young women in order to successfully gain immortality. A low-rent pleasure cruise ship skippered by cranky captain Cameron Mitchell gets attacked by the monks' nefarious white slavery ring partners-in-crime; said ring is actually led by a chubby former Nazi who comes complete with a Hitler mustache and an atrocious heavy German accent. Fortunately, a majority of the ship's survivors are these obnoxiously swaggering macho meathead martial arts experts and their equally proficient at karate bimbo girlfriends. Alas, the monks are a most resourceful lot; they resurrect their vicious long dead ancestors from beyond the grave (the zombies are clearly these thankless miserable extras sporting dirty tattered rags and two-cent Halloween schlock shop gray greasepaint make-up!), thereby allowing for lots of ridiculous and hence seriously smoking the living vs. the undead a**-stomping mano-to-mano physical confrontation action.
Yeah, this deliciously dumb darling's every bit as lovably ludicrous as the above synopsis suggests -- and all the better for it, man. I mean, any cheerfully crass picture that boasts perennial dreck flick favorites Vic Diaz and Cameron Mitchell in the cast, lovely actresses Jillian Kessner and Jennifer Holmes in feisty femme roles, features the expected mondo destructo bar fight scene (this one even has an especially luscious stripper in it!), a gory decapitation at the very start of the film (always a good way to start a movie), a clip from "Piranha," a guy putting his foot through the windshield of a speeding automobile in strenuous slow motion, and a wonderfully sleazy and protracted party orgy scene that's highlighted by topless cameos from the foxy Camille Keaton of "I Spit on Your Grave" infamy and the adorable, perpetually vacuous Valley Girl airhead supreme Jewel Shepard of "The Return of the Living Dead" fame all crammed together into an enthusiastically vibrant and scroungy anything-goes wild grind-house package certainly counts as a bona fide four-star jaw-dropping classic of exceptional drive-in entertainment.

This seems to be the kind of low budget film you watch when you have nothing else to do. Well, I got hooked by the first five minutes and I had to keep watching even though I had other things to do. The opening rescue scene is full of suspense and the protagonist's(Jonas) conflict is so quickly established that Paul Ziller and associates put you right into the story immediately.It's not surprising that Roger Corman, infamous for quick, low budget but high quality horror productions in the 1960s, is the executive producer. The setting and mood surrounding a fire crew camp is quite realistic. There are a lot of original features to this film that make it strongly recommended.

Alluc The Rhythm Section
The life of Joseph Goebbels and his rise as propaganda minister for the Nazis. Odd mix of Hollywood hokum and propaganda makes for a decidedly silly film. I'm not sure how the film played originally but seeing it some 70 years on I find the film creates some unintentional giggles. An early scene that had Goebbels wandering into a meeting where Hitler was speaking and becoming mesmerized by the third rate actor playing der fuhrer had me laughing out loud. How could anyone take this seriously? I think that was part of the point of the film, but at the same time it undercut the menace that the real life counter parts created (I mean the idea of Goebbels as a skirt chaser seems so quaint). I kind of liked it but I didn't love it. I completely understand why its relegated to an almost forgotten status (never mind the title "Enemy of Women" doesn't tell you what its about or what type of film it is). Worth a shot if you run a cross it but not something to search out

Warning: contains spoilers.
This was a terrible adaptation of a classic novel.The directing was so bad that my wife who had never read the novel had a hard time following story despite the fact that she has a high IQ.
I can certainly understand that changes have to be made when you're creating a screenplay from a novel. What I can't understand is the rationale behind completely changing the dominant philosophy of the original novel.For those of you who have not read the novel, the screenwriters have needlessly demonized the overlords. The overlords were not responsible for changing the children. That was going to happen as a cataclysmic evolutionary event (Clark's words) whether the overlords came or not. They were merely following orders from the over mind not to allow this change to destroy humanity or damage the over mind.
The overlords did not sterilize anyone in the novel. They also did not cause the children to leave. The children left on their own volition.And it was the children who destroyed Earth in the end, not the overlords.
The overlords home planet did not look like hell.And no one in the novel hated the overlords. Most realized by the end that the overlords were merely safeguarding an evolutionary event, and were doing so under orders. In fact, sympathy was expressed for the overlords because they could not evolve in the way humanity was.
Finally, the movie's final message was a sad and bitter one: the end of humanity mostly aided by the overlords. In contrast, while the novel expresses a bit of sadness for the end of humanity, our evolutionary descendants are seen as joining a vast and powerful over mind which controls most of our galaxy.
I was so looking forward to this TV series and was so bitterly disappointed in it. And as someone else on this message board commented, there were far too many commercials. I understand that money has to be made but this should be balanced with some consideration for the viewer.
