We’re back again with the Netflix Film Festival for a special Mother’s Day edition. Well, maybe not your mother, but the hot one that lives next door. Let’s dig in!

Eye of the Tiger (1986)

Gary Busey is fresh out of prison and facing more danger in this vigilante action flick. The words Gary Busey and vigilante should be enough to convince you this movie rules. It also stars the most badass Dodge truck ever built.

Black Moon Rising (1986)

Written by John Carpenter and starring Tommy Lee Jones, this action flick has forgotten gem written all over it. Heist flick with a super rad rocket car. Watch this one now.

Rage of Honor (1987)

The last of the great Sho Kasugi films. If you’ve watched any of his other films listed regularly on NFF, you don’t need to be convinced. It’s awesome.

Grave Encounters (2001)

Great spooky found footage flick that delivers the goods, already reviewed here on Paracinema. I second the thumbs up and you can watch it now.

Sweet Revenge (1998)

Aww how about that? A romantic comedy for Mother’s Day. Directed by Malcolm Mombray (Out Cold, also covered on NFF!), and starring Helena Bonham Carter and Sam Neil. this black comedy is perfect for all the mothers out there. All the cool ones anyway. Two love scorned individuals get together for the sole reason of destroying those that have hurt them.

      People are so all over the place on that film. I love hearing other people’s opinions.
