It’s right around the time that John Lithgow and Jesse Ventura equip themselves with phone book armor and huge metal rods to have a death-stick prison-fight to determine who the true “Aryan Warrior” is that I realized, sweet lord this movie is bringing the ruckus. It wasn’t the first scene of awesome and it definitely wasn’t the last but it perfectly encapsulates what makes this crazy little movie one of the most memorable action movies around.
There are a select few “one of a kind” movies left for viewers to find. Especially in Hollywood, where most successful formulas are quickly copied and watered down by a plethora of posers who hope they can make a quick buck. This is particularly true of the horror and comedy genres, where low budget films can make back their money quickly regardless of quality. Despite the vultures, there are still a few films that have a tone that’s all their own. One such film is An American Werewolf in London.
There are a ton of smaller movies on DVD and Blu-ray this week. Take a look…

Look at that win percentage! From what I hear, imagine if Scorsese was Australian and this is what you’d end up with. This movie also furthers my theory that Guy Pearce is incapable of making a bad movie.
Harrison Ford, as Indiana Jones, is an archaeologist who goes on a search for the mystical Ark of the Covenant, while outwitting Nazis who compete to obtain the Ark for its fabled supernatural power. Raiders of the Lost Ark is a movie that you need to see before you die.
