    The Manhattan Project (86/41)

    by  • 2/10/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    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 […]

    Starbuck, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (22/10)

    by  • 1/10/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    STARBUCK – This is really quite a fun film. Funny, charming, and very well acted. I don’t quite understand why public would be so disgusted by the anonymous Starbuck – it isn’t as if HE was behind all the babies. Shouldn’t the blame be placed on the fertility clinic in this case?

    DEAD SNOW – A group of medical students on Easter holiday in a cabin deep in the mountains; drinking, sex in the outhouse, strange scary mountain man with spooky stories of the Weird Happenings in the area. Some definite homage to classic genre films with the montage arming-up scene in the shed, attempts at unique […]

    Winnebago Man, True Stories (382/224)

    by  • 8/12/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    WINNEBAGO MAN (Hulu) – You’ve surely seen the subject of this film before. Out-takes from an industrial video he wrote and starred in have been circulating for 20 years – much of that in found footage festivals and hand-dubbed and traded video tapes, and online in the last five years thanks to Youtube. I dont […]
