Death of the Drive-In

Gotta say that I really dug Ed Brubaker's Angel of Death (2009), starring the perfectly capably Zoë Bell (performing all her own stunts, natch). Interesting tale of an assassin fixed on redemption and revenge. Film succeeds the most when Bell is kicking ass onscreen. Solid.

Brian Trenchard-Smith's Dead End Drive In (1986) wasn't at all what I expected. Probably a good thing as I was completely surprised by the chain of events that take place. Made for an exciting watch for a not-so terrific film. Honestly, BTS's commentary is more interesting. Still enjoyed this flick but main plot point just seemed implausible. Amusing to see the New Wave Aussie kids of the 80s.
