Solar Impact Alluc (2020)
Release: November 15, 2019
Alluc Solar Impact
The name of the song is You're Gone performed by "L" and written by Lawrence Young. I have yet to find it, but will post where it can be found once I do. I thought the whole soundtrack was really good. I just wish they would make it easier for us to find the songs and download them. I have never heard of "L", but he performs a few of the songs on the soundtrack. I have also searched under Lawrence Young, but have yet to come up with anything. So if anyone out there can find it, please let me know. The movie itself was pretty good. I thought it deals with things that are real and that people do go through this type of stuff. I would recommend this movie although it was not a box office hit, but sometimes these straight to DVD movies are better than what's in the theater.

Mortal Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release: February 28, 2020
Lazy, stupid, uninspired, these are a few things to describe "Dawn of the Croods". Based off of a decent 3D animated cartoon, 'The Croods', the television excursion of the franchise offers none of the heart, soul or even animation from it's predecessor.
The art is passable, but bland and unimaginative.
Director: André Øvredal
Cast: Nat Wolff, Priyanka Bose, Iben Akerlie, Arthur Hakalahti, Oddrun Valestrand, Ania Nova, Ravdeep Singh Bajwa, Per Egil Aske, Per Frisch, Martin Grid Toennesen, Sunniva Lind H�verstad, Torunn L�demel Stokkeland, Craig Narveson, Inger Berit Gr�terud, Niko Rusakov
Resistance Alluc (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, War
Release: March 27, 2020
Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas star in this great action-thriller. Sylvester Stallone plays Robert Rath, who is supposed to kill this guy at a funeral, but someone beats him to it. He tracks the man and has a nice little talk with him. The other man is another assassin, Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas). Rath (who is the best assassin there is) gets another assignment worth two million dollars. Eliminate buyers and return girl and disk and he can retire. Bain wants to beat Rath and complete the task first. What follows is a battle between the two assassins. Sylvester Stallone looks sleepy, at one time they show a close-up of his eyes and Julianne Moore's eyes. You can see the difference so easily. Banderas is alive, which is good. The best performance is probably from Julianne Moore who is the girl they have to get the disk from. Special effects are good, as is the ending climax. Overall, it is thrilling, with a fair amount of action and violence.
Director: Jonathan Jakubowicz

Peninsula Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Horror, Thriller
Release: August 7, 2020
I searched all over for this video, and I was greatly disappointed when I watched it. It's a very dark anime. I would say it's more horror than action. Don't expect anything like the series Bio-Booster Armor. The animation quality is the only thing it has that's better than the series. Get the episode tapes. This OAV is not very good.

Marriage Story Alluc (2019)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Release: December 6, 2019
Alluc Marriage Story
I don't know who left the other reviews, or how much Rob Schneider paid them, but this is by far the lest funny show I have ever seen. Imagine Curb your Enthusiasm meets Louie, but with out the funny parts. Its basically Rob Schneider flaunting his wealth and hot wife. Literally, every scene his wife is in is showing off her breasts.I also noticed that they seemed to increase the contrast in the whole show. All colors are incredibly, and unbelievably bright. His eyes are the bluest thing I have ever seen. It looks so fake, the script is terrible, the acting is horrendous by all parties, and to top it all off its boring. This is the worst thing that Rob Schneider has ever done, and its not like he had much going before this trash heap.

Greyhound Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Drama, History, War
Release: July 10, 2020
ased upon the novel "The Good Shepherd" by C S Forester, this is the thrilling story of the leader of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as he faces relentless attack by a Nazi submarine wolf pack. The leader of the convoy's destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first Atlantic crossing. The story focuses on the his command responsibility as he fights the cold, the relentless night, the brutal sea and his deep fatigue as he chases down the attacking submarines in the deadly game of cat and mouse. The exciting story, a thrilling ride-along with the beleaguered captain, so deeply portrays the elements of battle command that for a long period of time the book was used as a text at the US Naval Academy.

The Old Guard Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Release: July 10, 2020
Alluc The Old Guard
I found LUKAS' CHILD on a two disk set with the truly terrible THE SCREAMING and one of the worst movies ever made, HELLSPAWN. This was the best of them. The best scenes in this movie have a cult wearing skull masks feeding girls to "the child". The guy who plays the cult leader does a great job. However, the subplot about the detective investigating the cult and the snooping kids are both garbage. Watch this for the cult scenes, girls undressing, and some (unintentionaly) funny bits. It's at least as good as some of the things Roger Corman produced. The folks who made this clearly have a future in the exploitation/horror movie business.

Alluc First Cow
Speaking for the younger generation, I've never seen anything like it. This movie hit theaters 6 years before I was born and I only just saw it now in Nov. 2004. and I was so moved that I had to comment. Visually it was psychedelic, and the editing matches the music masterfully.
The music rocks! Carl Anderson is beyond amazing as Judas, and ALL of the performances are really magnetic. I love singing along with Annas, Jesus, and Kiafass. I mostly listen to KoRn and Rap, so I never expected to remember (rock opera) lyrics and run around performing them. The feeling I got when 1st "experiencing" the movie was trippy. Similar to a live concert. The movie is outstanding and in my opinion will last for generations and generations. It speaks to a part of my soul and spirit.It says "right on" "rock on"

Release: July 10, 2020
When elderly mother Edna inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam rush to their family's decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay's concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she's been clashes with Sam's unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna's behavior turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her. With RELIC, first-time writer/director Natalie Erika James crafts an unforgettable new spin on the haunted-house movie.

Hamilton Alluc (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Musical
Release: July 03, 2020
I've only watched the first 2 episodes and can't continue. I have no idea what is going on in this series, and it really bugs me that there's not historical context. Who were the Thanes, for example? Costumes are pretty good as well as the sets but the acting is pretty over the top and unbelievable. Maybe it's supposed to be, a lot of the same genre has over the top acting (think Hercules The Legendary Journeys or Xena: Warrior Princess) . Just seems like a waste of time for me. And Beowulf is one of my all time favorite stories, I'm still waiting for it to get it's just desserts. I doubt it will happen with this series. So disappointing.

The Outpost Alluc (2020)
Genre: Drama, History, War
Release: July 03, 2020
Alluc The Outpost
I'm not going to intentionally spoil anything but I'm writing freely so it seems prudent to warn spoilers may follow.
Colony is a story about a family with a father who gets zero respect from his wife and children. It claims to be science fiction but is really just a dystopian society behind a big wall.
Will Bowman shares inside information with his wife as though discussing the details of operations should be normal conversation while eating breakfast. He does exceptional detective work and figures out there is a leak in his department very early in the series but he can't come to the conclusion he is the leak until it beats him over the head...multiple times.
If you loved hating Lori Grimes, then you're going to really love hating Katie Bowman. Sarah Wayne Callies may be portraying the most ignorant character in the history of television. It isn't really her fault as she seems to play the role she is being asked to do by the production staff on Colony.
The Bowman family puts a new spin on dysfunctional family. Katie Bowman is deceptive and completely unhinged in all the wrong ways imaginable. When Will finally confronted her, she doubled down on her deceit and obviously stupid decision making by lying more and accusing him of being equally deceptive. (He isn't and it is clear for all to see).
Apparently the writers want the viewer to believe her actions have all been based on Will's attempt to find their missing son without telling her his plan. If that situation were more developed, it is possible it would seem like he should have been more forward with her at the time. Just don't expect an intelligent viewer to accept everything she does following that to be even remotely reasonable.
The supporting characters are all flawed in significant ways except for the role portrayed by Amanda Righetti. Katie's sister seems to be the only intelligent player who manages to have sufficient instincts to actually still be alive.
The creative team behind Colony must have been shocked it was picked up to series as the story stumbled around for nine episodes with almost no advancement in the main plot. Which may be inaccurate to say because I'm not sure I can identify a main plot.
Is it to rescue the Bowman's missing son? Are they supposed to overcome an invading alien army we've never seen? It might just be a contrived story to create two sides of a conflict so they can work against each other.
It has been established that there are collaborators and a resistance. It is established that the collaborators will squash any resistance with force. I'm not sure it should take ten episodes to reach this place in any story. The pieces have been shuffled around the board a little but nothing of significance has changed or been revealed.
Is there supposed to be a mystery to who or what the aliens are in this story? There is never any doubt or foreshadowing concerning the identity of the main antagonist. The only exposure to the main antagonist has been one dead diplomat in an impossible to remove metal iron man like getup and an apparent factory on the moon.
The purpose of the factory isn't revealed in any way and there is no mysterious activity that would cause suspicion about what it may be producing. In ten episodes, there is one brief scene of the factory. A worker apparently becomes ill and is eliminated by staff at the facility.
Wait! I Know what the main theme is of Colony. It is an alien race is slowly converting humans into a race that will worship them when they fulfill the prophecy of Jesus only not in the way we've always expected it to happen.
At least I guess that is the main plot. It was in two or three scenes spread out over ten episodes. It would be easier to determine if the Bowman family hasn't has as many or more scenes where one of them went out to pick oranges off a tree.

Luce Alluc (2019)
Release: August 2, 2019
The film was set in the town I grew up in! Arlington Virginia. Sadly all the shots were fake.
The movie started out like a longer version of the movie trailer. The plot was confusing and drawn out.
The musical soundtrack was very well done, very unique and thematic.

Alluc Impractical Jokers: The Movie
This is a short animated film with a horrible plot--one that is just too bizarre for words and confusing beyond belief!! Two children catch a rabbit and tear in in half--revealing a bizarre little god who, though powerful, has really stupid powers. It can turn bugs into jewels, so the kids begin killing animals with reckless abandon to attract more bugs in order to become wealthy. Disgusting, yes, but you have to admire the kids for their ingenuity and capitalistic zeal!
Now I am sure my description sounds sick beyond belief, but the animations make this film work and work well. Heck, the animations are the best reason to watch this thing--it sure ain't the "make your brain rot" story which is funny but too weird for words! The animations appear to be a children's basic primer from the 1940s or 50s come to life. They all look like moving examples of this art style AND every item in the scenes have the name of the object written next to them (so as to teach the little ones to read).
Considering how gross and inappropriate this all is, that makes for one sick and funny joke--though certainly NOT for every taste. I liked it and truly admired its animation and twisted and nonsensical storyline. I sure wish my reading books had been like this one when I was a kid--I sure would have loved reading even more than I do now!
PS--After reviewing this movie, I showed it to my family who sat in horror--at least until they got the joke and began to enjoy the film. As for me, I liked it even better the second time (and so I updated my initial score of 8 to 9).

Alluc The Personal History of David Copperfield
Before giving it negative reviews, please get past the first season and the real value and strength of this show will become evident, starting in season 2. Yes, the pilot and the entire season 1 was more of a mock-off teen drama with rustic touch. The actors weren't fully in their character (maybe this is the reason as to the criticism of acting) and the plot just started to thicken by the end of season 1. Oh, and tell me about some of the most unwise decisions that the characters make which frustrated me. But, wow, what a comeback in season 2. Yes, the show is not without its weaknesses but the acting has gotten much, much better in season 2 (by all the actors and actresses) and the overall quality of the show was enhanced on all aspects (like visual effects - much better in season 2) What I appreciated the most was how the show richly explored character development and relationships - Especially Malec! If you are ever stuck on relationship, watch Malec (Magnus and Alec) work on their relationship. It is full of mistakes but there's so much to learn from how they work it out in the end. Clary was finally fighting like a shadow hunter and not being a damsel in distress, which was a huge relief for me. It was amusing to see Izzy let her guard down for once - I mean she was like the only character that was the closest to normal in season 1, who mended everyone's fences. She deserved little bit of her own lost time. Loved how she came back from it so strong. Long story short, the show has finally has established its course starting in season 2 so I strongly encourage viewers to keep up with this show. It is worth it.

Artemis Fowl Alluc (2020)
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
Release: June 12, 2020
Alluc Artemis Fowl
While not exactly a brilliant masterpiece, this movie is solid, steady entertainment. The basic elements of a Robin Hood setting are there, but with a "daughter of Robin Hood" -approach to give a little variation to the theme.
Even though it's a "new" plot, they've kept a lot of familiar Robin Hood -themes in the film, including an archery contest and the same old villains - what would a Robin Hood -story be without Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, after all? And just like her father, Gwyn steals from the rich and gives to the poor, and desires justice and fairness to the people. All the classical elements are there, but with a little "girl power" in the mix.
There's also a rather nice father-daughter dynamic going on, with Robin trying to shelter his daughter from the dangerous life he lives. Gwyn, on the other hand, won't have any of that nonsense, and is more than willing to prove that she's "just as good as a son". The movie doesn't really explore medieval gender roles all that deeply, though - Gwyn dressing as a man is made slightly fun of, but there's no shock nor any disapproval of what might have even be considered sinful back then. The clothes may be medieval, but the attitudes are rather modern, and in that sense this is a rather typical adventure film, that doesn't let historical accuracy get in the way of a good story.
Keira Knightley does a delightfully energetic performance as the tomboyish and almost recklessly fearless Gwyn, and adds a lot to the freshness of the film. If you intend to watch this film because you're a fan of Keira Knightley, I doubt you'll be disappointed. The actors in general are giving solid, although maybe not the most memorable performances.
If you're looking for an entertaining, sort of harmless "feelgood" adventure movie, and are a fan of medieval type of settings, this is the movie for you.

Alluc The Blackout
I pride myself on being relatively open minded movie-wise, try not to prejudge films, and have a soft spot for low budget and b-grade genre movies, but folks, sometimes you just gotta draw the line! 'The Nostril Picker' is one of the most worthless movies I've ever had the misfortune to watch. Misleadingly packaged, it tries to give you the impression that it is "controversial" or "offensive". It isn't. Well it is offensive intellectually and aesthetically, but if you think you're gonna get a confrontational, boundary-pushing movie ala 'Salo', 'Nekromantik', 'Last House On The Left' or 'Pink Flamingos', you'll be in for a real shock! This is just a poorly made, embarrassingly acted, amateurish, so-called horror movie, which is so dumb it makes the current spate of teen comedies look like they were written by David Mamet. I don't know who Patrick J. Matthews is, but I rejoice that he has never set foot near a camera since this complete waste of time. This is as bad as it gets. 'The Nostril Picker' rivals gems like 'The Roller Blade Seven' and 'Art Deco Detective' for sheer awfulness. Avoid this movie at all costs!

Alluc The Invisible Man
A decent thriller starring David Janssen as a security consultant hired by Swiss bank owner Ray Milland to find out who is trying to blackmail the bank by exposing secret account information. Janssen suspects an inside job and is charged with protecting bank customer Senta Berger. John Saxon, John Ireland and Elke Sommer pop up as various suspects. Janssen is his usual stolid self and Berger is stunning, though really has nothing to do but flirt with Janssen. Ireland and Saxon overact wildly in their brief roles. The direction (by Jack Arnold!) is strictly journeyman work, with a few car chases and one too many dull shoot-outs. The whole thing is tied together nicely in the end. The screeching and over-used music is by Klaus Doldinger.

Brahms: The Boy II Alluc (2020)
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Release: February 27, 2020
Alluc Brahms: The Boy II
As the title might suggest, this is an adaptation of the Mark Twain novel 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court'. To make things more interesting Disney flipped the idea on its head and made it a spaceman going back in time, thusly adding much more scope for visual fun and games.
NASA are trying to send a manned crew to out nearest star Alpha Centauri with the use of a new flashy super fast shuttle. This shuttle will fly faster than the speed of light by collecting atoms and ionising them, all through magnetic fields fitted to the wings. No idea how this is suppose to work but its heavy foreshadowing that's for sure. By mistake Trimble and his android replica get blasted into space and on this perilous journey, but they don't get too far before ending up crashing back on Earth in the Middle Ages. Once discovered Trimble must convince the locals he's not an alien or monster, get to grips with medieval life and eventually try to stop Merlin and Mordred from overthrowing Arthur.
Right so this is a Disney movie, an old Disney movie, so you know to expect slushy crapola just like all old live action Disney movies. I mean straight away, this professor dude at NASA rings up the main character Trimble and tells him to make a humanoid android for the shuttle project...and he does! He just says 'yes sir' and gets right to it, creating the perfect human looking android with perfect senses, reactions and even emotions, just like that. If people in this universe have those kinda of skills why are humans still stuck on Earth? Anyway this isn't about scientific authenticity, its a pure fantasy aimed at kids to enjoy, and back in the day I did enjoy this thoroughly.
The lead character played by Dennis Dugan is terribly wet and preppy that's for damn sure, but I'd imagine he is appealing to the younger generations with his quirky, jaunty self. Other cast members are a who's who of classic British talents. Jim Dale of the famous British 'Carry On' movie franchise plays the baddie knight Mordred and gives quite a surprisingly solid performance to be honest. Ron Moody is Merlin and looks like your typical evil wizard mixed with Fu Manchu, couldn't help but think it was Fagin in the Middle Ages though. John Le Mesurier plays Sir Gawain adding some nice light- hearted humour to the role, whilst Kenneth More completes a little double act with Mesurier as King Arthur. This duo really played off each other well, like a little bickering old couple, its quite cute and charming, very childish, but adorable. Good old Pat Roach is in here too as Merlin's main henchman and muscle, what else would he be.
The cast was pretty epic looking back, like many of old movies, but for kids at the time it was all about the adventure really, and this had all the right ingredients. Medieval knights, jousting, large scale battles and space technology. The movie was shot in and around a real castle in Northumberland, UK which really added to the realism and excitement when you were a kid. Everything looked like a giant adventure playground with lots of wondrous (yet dangerous) toys, the weaving dimly lit castle corridors, secret passages, the space shuttle in the courtyard, swords, crossbows, various futuristic gadgets, a moon buggy etc...Everything in the film does look pretty good too, considering the films age it still holds up well today. All the sets and costumes look terrific too, very accurate for a Disney kids flick, it does appear that this movie had a reasonable budget and plenty of tender loving care lavished upon it.
Yet despite the fact this was indeed a kids flick, it didn't shy away from tiny moments of edgy material. For starters they actually have a full scale, full view burning of Trimble at one point. Even though everyone knows its not real they don't actually cut away from it! you actually see the stunt guy in there burning! or at least close to the flames with clever use of forced perspective...I think! Put it this way it looks pretty realistic for a Disney movie sheesh! Then you have the jousting contest where we see Trimble's android getting taken apart piece by piece until his head is speared off, and yes there are no cuts, you see it fly off. Lastly there are actually references to Playboy magazine here, its actually shown, front cover en all! Of course you don't see anything but the fact its in there, presumably as product placement, is quite bizarre frankly.
Yes this fantasy adaptation has something in it for everyone, lots for the boys of course, romance with a maiden for the girls, and the legendary actors hamming it up something rotten for the adults. There is plenty of silly hokey stuff naturally, yet some quite clever stuff also, and what's more the special effects and props all add to the atmosphere perfectly. The big battle finale set in and around the castle at the end is the coup de grace, chock full of fun little moments. To be honest this whole thing feels a bit like a pantomime for kids, you half expect to hear hissing when the villains walk in shot. Its all so horrendously good-natured and delightful, its sickening...but in an acceptable way, nice score too.

Onward Alluc (2020)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Release: March 04, 2020
Hanna D is an Italian take on the German movie Christiane F. It resolves around the young girl Hanna who come from an abusive home and have to turn to the street to support her mother and herself.
The movie is not a very well made one. There's actually a lot of parts in it where you just have to assume what's happened. Maybe some reels ended up missing since after all it was cult legend Bruno Mattei who edited this thing together. It also seems like they either had extremely short time to make this or just very small patience to get things right.
Even though it has it's errors if you look at how it's made it still is about the darker side of life for lost youngsters and becomes an interesting movie if you can look past it's many flaws.
The movie is also very exploitative and sleazy, so if that's not something you think you can enjoy then pass up on this movie.
