Attila (2013)

attila_theatrical_poster-lowres

Viewing Date: 10/15/2015

Summary: When American soldiers inadvertently steal Attila the Hun’s secret riches, the wrath of the barbarian is awakened; the mummified warrior will stop at nothing to kill the intruders. (via IMDB)

Starring: No one worth mentioning

Rules

  • Crazy scientist chews on a puzzle piece
  • “Staff” or “Stick”
  • Zombie monster kills somebody
  • Someone ineffectively tries to shoot zombie monster

 

Quotes

“You can pry it off, fry it off, or fuck it off.”

“It was stolen from our lab at zero-twelve-hundred hours.”  (zero-twelve-hundred?!)

“Bulldog, are you dead?”  “No Sir.”

Viewer Quotes

“Are these guys the A Team?”  “More like the C team.”

“Hamilton-esque hiccups!”

What We Learned

  • The holy grail was obtained during WWII
  • Nothing can kill the zombie monster and the only thing that can slow it down is karate.
  • The filmmakers seemed to think this movie is good enough to set up sequels
  • There is no purpose to the zombie monster except for murderous rampage
  • The reincarnated son of Attila the Hun has a burned up face, but the rest of his body is fine.

Final Take

Ehh…  The movie didn’t really make sense.  It was a stereotypical movie about an unstoppable monster that an elite (?) squad of soldiers have to take down.  They are all killed, and the general was behind it and had a secret agenda.  We’re still not sure why the zombie was killing everyone…  Skip this one.

Nazis at the center of the earth (2012)

Nazis

Viewing Date: 3/26/15

Plot:

Researchers in Antarctica are abducted by a team of masked storm troopers. They are dragged deep underground to a hidden continent in the center of the earth. Here Nazi survivors, their bodies a horrifying patchwork of decaying and regenerated flesh, are planning for the revival of the Third Reich. (From IMDB)

Starring:

Dominique Swain and Jake Busey

Rules:

  • Nazi clichés
  • Nazis dying
  • Faces getting ripped off
  • Every time blond chick runs

Quotes:

“What is wrong with you, you’re never squeamish?”  (After her friend’s brain has been ripped out and girl vomits.)

Viewer Quotes:

“So one guy has been delivering people to the Nazis for years to use as spare parts and nobody has noticed?”

“Where did he get that baseball?”

“That is the worst thing you can say to a Robo-Hitler.”

Things we learned:

  • To tear someone’s face off, you just need to cut them a little bit at the top of their head.
  • There are mountains and temples at the center of the earth.
  • It’s not cold at the center of the earth.
  • Nazis have UFO technology.

Final Take:

For a movie with great promise, it just doesn’t really deliver.  It goes to places that it shouldn’t go – zombie rape and abortion scenes – that make it mean spirited and take the fun out of it.  This should have just been over the top ridiculousness.  If you’re looking for a silly zombie Nazi movie, I would definitely check out “Dead Snow” instead.

Rules:

-Illegal activity

-Cops die

-Schwarzeneggerisms – smoking cigars, bad puns/one liners, flexing unnecessarily, feats of strength

-Bad American accents done by non – Americans

Quotes:

“I’m not going to stick my dick where your dick has been.”

“It doesn’t look like a dick.”

“It’s time to do the Lord’s work.” = going to a strip club

“Pull your fuc%in panties out of your ass and drink a fuc%in beer.”

“Nick, wake up you drunk fuc%.”

“That’s what you get for fingering the devil’s pu$$y.”

“You’re awesome on a road trip, you know that?”

“What the hell are we doing here?  We could be drinking beers and throwing dollar bills at someone naked.”

“Ammo’s cheap.  My life ain’t.”

Viewer Quotes:

“How old is Schwarzenegger now?  78?”

“These are the worst cops ever.”

“In the 80’s cool guys lived in their mobile homes… Peeing in their sinks.”

“I hated Michael from Lost.”

Things we learned:

-Wrapping bodies in chicken wire and dumping them in a pond keeps them from floating up.

-A lot of decent actors can’t make a bad movie work.

-The cartel is not someone you want to fuc% with.

-Innocent cyclists are the best way to stop a bad guy in a car chase.

Final Take:

The whole movie should have been like the last 20 minutes – silly and gratuitous.  In general it was gratuitous but it took itself way too seriously.  There was a great cast, but they did nothing with it.  This was a wasted opportunity all the way around.

If you are in a coma you can lose your soul.

A cast full of stuntmen are not good actors.

Final Take:

Not a bad little movie with a cheap budget.  I don’t know why Darth Maul is slumming it in this movie, but I guess that’s what you get after starring with Jar Jar.
