Amazon Says: Joe is a professional hit man, who, during his missions, picks someone off the street to do his errands and after he is finished kills that person. His next assignment takes him to Bangkok where he will be for a month, and as usual, he finds a street kid named Kong to help him.

However, he has a hard time keeping his other life from her. Joe becomes a target and is attacked by four gang members. He manages to escape and sets out to rescue a kidnapped Kong. less...

Amazon Says: When a long-abandoned Utah silver mine is reopened 100 years after a mysterious massacre, a group of young and amorous miners must face off the enthusiastically vicious monsters lurking beneath their feet. (From the little that is shown of the titular creatures, we can see that they closely resemble a cross between a snapping turtle and a ticked-off length of Jimmy Dean link sausage.) A nicely atmospheric drive-in classic that takes a while to get going, The Boogens boasts some creepy locations, a few good scares, and characters that are an intellectual cut above the usual splatter fodder (although they still have the nasty habit of splitting up and going off alone when investigating a strange sound). Superior schlock. --Andrew Wright less...

Amazon Says: From back of slip cover: It's not a job. It's an adventure! Steven Seagal comes aboard and comes on strong, combining humor and heroics in a fireball of a movie. The excitement starts when the USS Missouri welcomes aboard the musi­cians and caterers set to provide enter­tainment during the famed battleship's last voyage. The visitors throw a party, all right. A war party. Led by a rogue CIA operative (JFK's Tommy Lee Jones) and a turncoat officer (Lethal Weapon's Gary Busey), they're really killer-elite commandos out to hijack the ship's nuclear arsenal. They overpower the crew. Except for one man. "I'm just a cook," that man says. But he's a cook with a recipe for action. He's ex-Navy SEAL and highly decorated combat operative Casey Ryback (Seagal). Relying on his slam­ bang martial-arts skills and equipped with enough hard­ware to single­-handedly wage World War III, Ryback turns the Missouri's deck and below-deck areas into guerril­la combat zones. All hands ready, action fans! less...
