    William S. Burroughs: A Man Within (511/300)

    by  • 10/27/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: A MAN WITHIN – I really had no idea about who the man William S. Burroughs. I only really knew the gravely voiced writer and poet who recited Thanksgiving Prayer, Nov. 28, 1986, who worked with Ministry, and Kurt Cobain, and influenced so much of pop music culture. I had no idea […]

    Chinese movie update (509/298)

    by  • 10/25/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    During our trip to China (October 12-24) I didn’t really track the when and where of each of these films; many were on the flights, some were during hotel downtime. Most of these 22 films were during the over 40 hours of airport and flight time we had during our travels. Thankfully, Cathay Pacific had […]

    Buried (476/276)

    by  • 10/3/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    BURIED – Hands up; who hasn’t wanted to see Ryan Reynolds locked in a box and buried in the desert? This is the best “trapped in the wilderness” film I’ve seen this year; better than James Franco’s 127 and better than Adrien Brody’s WRECKED. How do you define cold? Inventing a reason to fire someone […]

    The Expendables (458/262)

    by  • 9/19/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    THE EXPENDABLES (Netflix) – Quite bad technically; crappy CGI lasers, night vision, and the uncanny valley on some of these stars is a bit steep – Stallone almost looks human, but what is he, 80? The last 40 minutes of awesome explosions are ruined by “actors” being on screen. It’s possibly dumber than I imagined […]

    Interplanetary, Aaah! Zombies!!, Terri (398/232)

    by  • 8/20/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    INTERPLANETARY (Netflix) – This film isn’t really clear on what it wants to be. It could be a satire about overly bureaucratic organizations or a science-fiction monster movie. I enjoy low budget films, but not when they’re boring. AAAH! ZOMBIES!! (WASTED AWAY) (Netflix) – Another extremely low budget zombie movie where the zombie epidemic is […]

    Tangled (395/231)

    by  • 8/19/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    TANGLED (Netflix) – As a movie, I wasn’t all that impressed, but I’m not a huge Disney animation fan. It’s better than any of the last dozen or two they’ve released though. Is this actually the first film they’ve released where the main character’s mother isn’t dead? I am a huge fan of the animators […]

    The Call of Cthulhu, Killers (393/229)

    by  • 8/17/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    THE CALL OF CTHULHU (Netflix) – A modern, silent, B&W, no-budget film of the Lovecraft mythos. I don’t think I’ve seen a fan-made film that was as good as this. I suppose there’s something to be said for having amateur actors who don’t have to speak KILLERS (Netflix) – Funny, but not really all that […]
