Mini Review:

I’m just not sure about this movie, at the same time I liked it and I disliked it. The one thing I wish was a little different was the first part of the movie, I think they spent way too much time making it feel like you were really watching a documentary about Gigaler.com.

They never really explained who or what was doing the killing. They hinted at it for the most part but they really never did do a good job of explaining things. For a B-Rated movie though I thought the acting was pretty good. So if you have Amazon Prime you should really check out this movie. It’s well worth the watch.

Mini Review:

I have watched this movie numerous times when it played on SyFy channel or it could have even been Chiller. I saw it pop up on Amazon so I figured I would watch again for the umpteenth time. I figured all the times it has been on regular TV it was probably heavily edited like most movies are. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. It was more or less the same movie. Which is ok I guess, I like the movie so I didn’t mind watching the same version again.

This is your typical ghost hunters making a TV show type of movie, nothing really new or original but it’s still worth a watch. So if you have Amazon Prime there is no reason that you really shouldn’t check this movie out, especially if you’re into paranormal related movies.

Mini Review:

A lot of times you watch a movie when you are younger then you watch it again as a grown-up and you wonder why you even liked it, but with Fortress I will say this movie has stood up to the test of time. I loved it as a kid and still enjoyed it as a grown-up. I would say it probably ranks in my top 5 if not top 3 movies of all time. Not really sure why it just does. I remember as a kid watching it a few times a month cause I believe HBO aired it often. And I would make it a point to watch it every time it was on.

It’s about a school teacher in Australia in a very small town that has a variety of school-aged kids in the same little school house. One day a bunch of armed men come and take them hostage, and the rest of the movies is them trying to get away and then finally deciding to take a stand and fight back.

It’s a hard movie to come by, it’s not on any of the streaming services or VOD but if you happen to come across, watch it. If you look on YouTube you may also be able to find it but the quality would not do it justice.
