Schlockmania’s hopes that this first installment of the AMG Dirty Dozen of 2019 finds your new year off to a good start. Here are twelve titles that will help make it even better. Highlights on this roster include a classic where John Wayne gives young boys a lesson in manliness, a pioneering pair of NYC-set thrillers made for the direct-to-video market by Larry Cohen and two-thirds of the Walking Tall series. The list even includes a collection of American Idol lowlights and an early howler from Uwe Boll that might be the worst film ever made on the topic of Columbine.
Since these reviews were originally written, Schlockmania has run full-length reviews for Walking Tall, Part 2 and Walking Tall: Final Chapter. Just click on the titles for those films below to check out those long-form reviews.
