The Street Fighter 5/17/22
But after the inmate's brother and sister are unable to pay up, Chiba gets in a fight that leads to the brother's gruesome death (Chiba's culpability is questionable as the brother accidentally leaps out the window) and then sells the sister into sexual slavery (Chiba's culpability is undeniable in ...
A Taxing Woman's Return 5/11/22
Yet while there are still funny moments (the followers barging into a room in unison and angrily demanding the tax inspectors leave immediately after Miyamoto tries to do her bad cop routine; Miyamoto trying to fake religious mania with gyrations that bring to mind Martin Short's dance moves in Clif...
The Prey 5/08/22
What if I told you that with the exception of the opening scene, there isn't any killing for over thirty minutes into this eighty minute movie, and when the slashing does happen, it's not especially gruesome?
The Nine Demons 5/08/22

Ilsa, the Mad Butcher 5/03/22
The movie also deserves some points for a not entirely politically correct but still sympathetic portrayal of a trans character, who happens to get the best line in the movie.
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS 4/27/22
(The two funniest moments in the movie involve the drum-and-fife music that plays after this scene, a cross between Yankee Doodle Dandy and Dixie, and the shocked reaction of another prisoner upon learning his abilities.
Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks 4/27/22
All that being said, even though this is better made, I suspect Ilsa would not be quite the icon as she is were this the first movie, as the original's junkier construction lets her presence shine in a way this better rounded movie does not.
