A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child Review


Bad
Alice (Lisa Wilcox) survived Nightmare 4, only to find herself knocked up by Freddy in installment #5 -- as he tries to become born for real into the world. Huh? It doesn't make a lick of sense, and gets all the worse when Freddy's mother appears to put a stop to his shenanigans. That said, there's a force-feeding fatality that is so absurd it's worth a peek. Probably the worst of the Nightmare on Elm Street flicks.

Bones Review


Weak
In this cheesy flick, rapper extraordinaire Snoop Dogg simply barks up the wrong tree. Snoop, who has previously tested the acting waters with his menacing persona in inner city dramas such as Training Day and Baby Boy, gets to strut his stuff in director Ernest Dickerson's garishly laughable thriller. Dickerson (Juice) wastes his star in a labored vehicle that is riddled with misguided camp and countless spook-infested clichés. Not enough to even deem this imbecilic fable a worthy copycat blaxploitation flick, there are sticks and stones that can certainly break the brittle Bones. No doubt the filmmakers behind this bloated hip-hoppish Halloween costume drama will draw its intended audience to see their "phat" Snoop Dogg do his thing. It's too bad he plays second fiddle to the ridiculous premise of this mockish movie.

Snoop Dogg portrays charismatic hood Jimmy Bones, a stylish late '70s dude with a cool demeanor to match his threads. Jimmy has always protected his community by looking out for his crime-ridden neighborhood. He possesses the cocky swagger of John Shaft and the street savvy of Superfly's Priest. We're told in flashback that Jimmy Bones refused to deal crack cocaine to his beloved people, and thus the crooked cops and thugs snuffed him out. But nobody betrays Jimmy Bones -- nobody! So he comes back from the dead.

Pump Up The Volume Review


Good
A teen anthem and guilty pleasure, the decidedly silly/ridiculous Pump Up the Volume was a reinvention of Christian Slater's Heathers performance and gave us an early Samantha Mathis as his semi-goth muse. Slater's "Hard Harry" runs a pirate radio station every night because he can't get up the nerve to actually talk to anyone in the real world. Harry feels that encouraging sedition and even suicide is good, sending the school into a full-blown panic. The evil school district and clueless dad feel otherwise. Will Harry get busted? It doesn't really matter in the end, but you'll get good vibes off the film as you fondly remember the stupid things you did as a teen.
