Question Bruce Campbell

So, last week, I got The Evil Dead trilogy. Army of Darkness is fucking awesome, of course. I bought Bubba Ho-tep a few days ago. Although not as fucking awesome as Army of Darkness, it's still pretty awesome.

So, I'm looking for some reviews of the other Bruce Campbell movies from anybody that's seen them:

My Name Is Bruce (2007) - looks pretty entertaining, but it might also suck
Man With the Screaming Brain (2005) - I've seen parts of it, and it looks like it has potential
Alien Apocalypse (2005) - saw parts of that, and it was weak
Serving Sara (2002)
Icebreaker (2000) - how can it not be a cheesy Bruce Campbell movie when the ski resort has a name like "Killington?"
Running Time (1997)
Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat (1990) - vampires, almost Deadites!
Moontrap (1989)
Torro. Torro. Torro! (1981) - I couldn't find shit on this on IMDB, except for the plot line "A lawnmower goes on a rampage." LMAO!
Shemp Eats the Moon (1978) - nothing, nothing at all

The Evil Dead series and Brisco County are the only things I've seen him in and liked. Bubba Ho-Tep was horrible in my opinion.

I read his auto-biography. If you ever wonder why he is in all of Sam Raimi's films, its because they were childhood friends and made films together before the Raimi's blew up.

I've been meaning to pick it up. I saw two of his books at the bookstore. One was Confessions of a B-Movie Actor or something like that, and I forget the other one. Both looked interesting.

"If chins could Kill" is his autobiography. Read this first.
"Make love the Bruce Campbell way" is his work of fiction, a funny read.

My name is Bruce has not been released just yet.

Ok.
Escape from new york is one of the best of John Carpenters early works. If you like that, try The Thing, Big trouble in Little china, Christine, They Live, and the ORIGINAL Halloween. If you liked Escape from New York, Escape from LA is good but not great.
You can search and find the superior sequel script that was written in the late eighties. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/34221

And you can goto the local comic book shop and see if they have the 4 book series by Hurricane that follows Snake after he leaves New York, and tries to steal Kennedy's Lincoln in Atlantic city.

Nice!

I picked up "If Chins Could Kill" from Hastings (used) the other day because I couldn't bring myself to pay $25 for a copy of Escape from New York.

I appreciate that, but it was only $7, and I prefer to own over borrow or rent.
