• The Manhattan Project (86/41)

    THE MANHATTAN PROJECT – This film features one of the cheeriest “I’m making a bomb!” montages ever produced. This is a whole lot cheesier and much more shallow than I remember. “We’re kids – what are they going to do – it’s a prank!” In 1986? Maybe not… In 2011? Waterboarding. You’d think that ONE […]

    Videodrome, Anonymous (69/33)

    VIDEODROME – Come up to Toronto and James Woods will show you some torture porn and then pierce your ears. Watch out for his Six Pack Dentata. Emissions from the Cathode Ray Tube setup in a mission to help cure the homeless… and perhaps carry something more sinister. I’m more than a little surprised to […]

    Mission Impossible, Moscow / Cassiopeia (50/23)

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE – Seems like an awful lot of work to go through to kill a handful of spies. The spring-loaded anti-spy device installed at the top of the elevator shaft alone would take months of design, manufacture and installation time. Would have been easier and cheaper just to have someone shoot him, but I […]

    Another Earth, Lethal Weapon, Hobo With A Shotgun (14/7)

    ANOTHER EARTH – This reminds me a little bit of MELANCHOLIA – where there’s a huge astronomical event that is going to change (or destroy) the entire world, and yet, that’s not the primary point of the story. We have, instead, a story about choices, about destiny versus free will. Rhoda Williams (Marling) has made […]

    Hopscotch, Julia’s Eyes, Cedar Rapids (6/2)

    HOPSCOTCH – Miles Kendig (Matthau) decides that he’s had enough of the political bullshit from his clueless CIA minders. Rather than passively accept an assignment to a desk in the basement file room, Kendig has a more interesting idea – he’s going to write a book, and threaten to publish it. Naming names, he sends […]

    Pulp Fiction, Atlas Shrugged Part 1 (541/318)

    by  • 11/14/2011 • film • 2 Comments

    PULP FICTION – Watched the fan edit ‘The Chronological Cut’ where all the storylines are placed into, you guessed it, chronological order. It’s a bit weird to start off with the watch scene and move on from there, especially since now we don’t end the film until the Fighter escapes from the Sex Dungeon after […]
