Viet Cong at Teleport City?

Reviews of trashy Filipino war movies are often limited to raves about just how bad the movies are. Fun for the writer but less fun for the fan who actually wants info and an incisive piece on the film in question. I've just stumbled over a review that is both well-written and incisive about the movie INTRUSION: CAMBODIA! Great stuff! The review was posted over at the excellent Teleport City website in December of last year (2011). I highly recommend you check it out. Go here.

  2. Jack, your wise words can be also said about IFD & Filmark movies. That's why I don't review movies in my site. I just offer techical information & other data such as filming location or the people who worked on them.
    Whenever there is a review in Golden ninja warrior chronicles, the review belongs to other people or site. I totally agree with you in this matter.

  3. The guiding principle behind Teleport City is that we're not a "make fun of the bad movie" site. We legitimately enjoy the films we enjoy. Sure, sometimes it's because they're entertainingly bad, but usually that's not the main reason we fall in love with something. Writing about films like this is like doing archaeology -- there's so little information about them, at least online and in English. You have to dig through entire deserts to find the slightest sliver of real information. Make sit a lot more fun that just throwing another review of a well known movie onto the pile.

    Anyway, your site is why I know about many of these films in the first place, so it's proven an invaluable resource for titles I know I want to track down. Thanks for the hard work!

  4. Thanks for your kind words, Keith! And yeah in regards to your philosophy behind your site and your reviews: I couldn't have said it better myself! I'm like The Cramps with rock 'n' roll, they would never laugh at it. Maybe laugh WITH it but never AT it. They respected it too much. I feel the same way with my movies.

    Jesus Manuel, thanks buddy!

Yes, we have a comment filter now! It seems most comments these days come from shit spammers in India so there you go.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
