Black Rain (1989) — Movie Reviews by a Mook

Let’s be honest. If you looked that good sitting on a motorcycle while wearing shades with a bunch of Japanese signs behind you, you’d probably pose like this too. Michael Douglas knows.

The Quest (1996) — Movie Reviews by a Mook

Do you like tournament movies, the kind with a bunch of fighters from around the world taking on one another with different styles until only the last fighter remains? You know, like Bloodsport? Then you might end up enjoying this goofy period piece written by, starring, and directed by Jean-Claude Van Damme. An old man […]
