Search for Weng WengSearch for Weng Weng (2013)
5 stars (Exceptional) Obsessive film documentary about the unlikeliest of all action movie stars. A surprising personality appears partway through it. Funny but it also becomes unexpectedly moving towards the end.
DVD $29.95
King of Kong, The King of Kong, The (A Fistful of Quarters) (2007)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) Good vs. evil in the real world played out between two console video game players vying for the world record. Very funny.
Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon FilmsElectric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2014)Aro Favourite
5 stars (Exceptional) fascinating documentary about the rise and fall of Cannon films. Lots of clips from classic bad but fun movies – low and big budget.
DVD $29.95 $22.45 | Blu-Ray $34.95

Borgias, The (TV Series)Borgias, The (TV Series) (2011)
5 stars (Exceptional) Brilliant! Great acting, twisting plot, incredible sets and locations, amazing costumes and some brutal action. Loved it!
TickledTickled (2016)Aro Favourite
5 stars (Exceptional) Brilliant documentary that starts with a light touch then gets very heavy and dark with some tense moments. Excellent lighting and cinematography.
DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $14.95
TremorsTremors (1990)Aro Favourite
5 stars (Exceptional) An excellent 1950's style monster movie – a small town is under siege from underground giant worm–like creatures with big sharp teeth. Nice mix of suspense and comedy. Bacon & Ward & Gross are great! Spawned sequels.
Cape FearCape Fear (1991)Aro Favourite
5 stars (Exceptional) De Niro is ultra creepy as the nasty stalking (and worse) Max. One of Scorsese's best. Watch for an actor cameo from the 1962 original. Great theme music, too.
DVD $34.95 | Blu-Ray $14.95
Warriors, TheWarriors, The (1979)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) A mix of odd gangs, cool music and a classic story. Some great action set pieces. The Baseball Furies gang never lose their creepy clown–like cool (even if The Warriors beat them). Great for a double–feature with The Wanderers (watch this second).
