Coked-out record producer Richard Saxx (Goran Visnjic) is accused of murder and thrown into a prison ward for at-risk prisoners; mainly gay and transgender inmates. The ward is ruled by trans capo Mousey (Kate del Castillo), who holds onto power at the behest of the vile Sgt. Johnson (D.B. Sweeney), and by child molesting monster Detroit (Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister). Saxx, who is neither gay nor trans, slowly builds alliances in the ward, which comes in handy when the last straw breaks and the prisoners rise up to turn the tables against their tormentors.

A Fabulously Shitty Film!
Albert (John Savage) once killed the mother of a little teenage girl he was in love with. He spent half of his life behind the walls of a mental health institute because of this. Due to lack of funding, Albert is now pronounced cured and ready to enter society again. But of course Albert is still utterly insane, and very much ready to go on a killing spree to get to his beloved little Annie Smith (Kimberly Chase), with only the intelligible Dr. Sachs (John Saxon) determined to stop him.
Oh dear… it looks like Leon’s been playing with his doll again…
One tire, two reviews.
Rubber is a roadmovie about the most lonesome killer imaginable. He doesn’t talk. He doesn’t walk. He doesn’t listen. He just lurks, stalks and… blows things up. His name is Robert, and he was the star of this year’s opening movie for Offscreen Film Festival 2011. Not one, but two of us attended the screening. Hence, another dual-review.
When giant space-birds attack.
Electronics expert Mitch MacAfee (Jeff Morrow) is working with the US Defense Department to calibrate their northern radar network when he sees a UFO that he describes as a “flying battleship”. No one, not even the lovely female mathematician Sally Caldwell (Mara Corday) believes him, but soon the plane that they’re flying out on is downed by… something. Soon it becomes clear that there’s a giant bird flying around that’s immune to any kind of attack. So it’s up to the scientists to find a way to deal with the problem with the entire strength of the military behind them….
Oh, the giant bird is really, really stupid-looking.
Too quiet, dammit! Show some guts!
