My HD DVD Collection And A Tip For Movie Watchers On A Budget
Hello folks. Apologies for the lack of activity here lately but life got crappy and I wasn’t up to being outgoing for a while.
Well, I was sitting around and decided to take shots of my HD DVD titles and post them here. I think I must have been one of the very few folks that invested in the HD DVD add on for the XBOX 360. I picked up a few titles when the format was current, purchased a big ol’ box of HD DVDs on ebay, as well as a few titles at garage sales and thrift shops. Despite being a dead format, if you have a way to play them, they are all 1080P resolution and can be picked up for a song. Great way to get some half decent HD titles! You can also either purchase the HD DVD drive add on for the 360 used for cheap (look and you will find one), and if you are lucky (or just try), you can find a crap load of the movies for super cheap.
Hope you enjoy the pictures of my collection, and I promise there will be more movie reviews coming soon!
Mindwarp (1992) – Bruce Campbell Cheeziness to the Max
Mindwarp (also known as Brain Slasher) is a 1992 post environmental apocalypse sci-fi/horror film staring Bruce Campbell. Three groups of humans exist: those that were saved and brought to a complex, shielded from the destructive rays of the unshielded sun, and those forced to live outside. Most of those are mutants called Crawlers, who live in an underground, hellish society, coming to the surface to scavenge for old technology, and the occasional straggler to be captured and most often used for food, but occasionally used as breeding stock. The other, smaller group are regular humans, struggling to survive against the deadly sun and the evil crawlers – Bruce Campbell is one of this group. The movie surrounds a young lady who is part of the “lucky” group that is protected. She questions her existence as it is just comprised of sleeping and then being hooked up to the Infinisys sytem that allows them to enjoy a simulated reality of their choice, as there is nothing to do locked away from the outside. She hates it and rebels, getting herself expelled fron the safety of the indoors. Finding herself outdoors, she is quickly captured by crawlers, and almost as equally quickly rescued by our trusty hero, Bruce Campbell.
Bruce explains to her where she is and what exactly he saved her from. Then they make out and promptly both captured by crawlers and brought below to the subterranean world of the Crawlers.
In this dank evil world, Bruce is relegated to a work gang, while the girl is brought to a room to be tested for breeding comparability Here are back and forth skirmishes, they escape, get captured, escape again, get captured again. Then there’s a big twist when we find out who runs the Crawler world. Throw in a couple more little twist and then run the credits.
This is a typical early 90s Bruce Campbell film: low budget and cheezy dialogue. It’s silly, and yet I liked it – like I said, it’s got Bruce Campbell in it! If you’re a Bruce Campbell film then you know you have to see this film, and it is better than some of his other post Evil Dead movies.
Sorry folks, but I couldn’t find a trailer anywhere!
