    Buck (93/44)

    BUCK – I was reluctant to watch this film; how interesting could a film about a horse trainer be? Well, it turns out it’s pretty good, thanks to a surprisingly charismatic central figure in Buck.

    Defendor, Contagion (83/38)

    by  • 2/7/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    DEFENDOR – I’m not a big Woody Harrelson fan, but there’s something great about his portrayal of Defendor. It’s described as a dark comedy, but there’s nothing that I’d consider traditionally funny here – this is a tragedy in every sense. This dim man child tries to track down his nemesis, Captain Industry, who stole […]

    TEENS IN SPACE – They arrive on the distant planet, and head down to see who had sent the signal that was received on Earth. What do they find? pinheaded disco aliens in bell-bottoms. These disco creatures are capitalist robots; actual robots, seeking self-centered bliss without any personal reponsibility! During one of the rescue missions, […]

    Margin Call (65/31)

    by  • 1/31/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    MARGIN CALL – With Kevin Spacey managing a team of traders, MARGIN CALL feels something like a modern day retelling of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS salesmen… There may be more blame laid on the top levels of the firm in MARGIN CALL, but the same smell of desperation is on all the characters – even the […]
