Notes:
*I needed to watch something silly after seeing the very serious and tragic Patriots Day.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: The effects, especially the exploding heads! Sherman Oaks Galleria, as it’s setting. Kelli Malroney, is just plain adorable in the film. Paul Bartel and Mary Moronov The film’s satirical humour. Dick Miller! Kill bots! It’s a fun, under appreciated horror comedy."

"14.1, PC Aluksi tämä on kämäisyydessään ihan hauskaa seurattavaa, mutta mitä pidemmälle elokuva etenee, sitä väsyneemmältä vitsiltä nuo laseria ampuvat, R2D2:n kaltaiset vartijarobotit tuntuvat. Onneksi kesto on olematon, sillä 77 minuuttia enempää tähän ei olisi viitsinytkään tuhlata."

"First viewing - Oct. 2nd So clearly Chopping Mall is by no means a great classic of the genre, but knowing Barbara Crampton was in it and having occasionally seen it spoken of positively I wanted to give it a chance.
