    Planet of The Apes (2001), The Informant (178/107)

    PLANET OF THE APES (iTunes) – This 2001 remake doesn’t try very hard on all fronts. Could they make the wire-fu look any lamer? It takes all of the excellent costuming and effects and turns them into bad cartoons. Most of the apes have great prosthetics, and the actors seem to have worked to get […]

    FALLING DOWN (iTunes) – One of those days when you just keep stumbling across weapon power-ups. Baseball bat, butterfly knife, machine gun, BFG… well, that might have been a different movie I’m thinking of, or Duke Nuke ’em That’s a hell of a way to treat a vet! You’re an animal doctor? In my memory, […]

    Vertigo, Traitor, Rear Window (161/98)

    VERTIGO (Netflix) – I like Hitchcock films for the most part; interesting stories, odd twists, stellar photography. I didn’t find VERTIGO had a story that I could deal with. The photography is great – brilliant framing and colour. The acting is top notch for the period, but the whole murder mystery angle is pretty much […]

    Happy-Go-Lucky (152/94)

    HAPPY-GO-LUCKY (iTunes) – After seeing her in MADE IN DAGENHAM, I looked up other movies that Sally Hawkins was in. Poppy is not someone I’d likely have a lot of patience with either – she natters happily nearly without end, regardless of what’s going on around her. There are moments where that breaks, and an […]

    Flock, Insidious, Limitless (151/93)

    THE FLOCK (iTunes) – Richard Gere as someone with a bit of post traumatic stress disorder working the sex offender beat. He seems to be something of a stopped clock, and this film is about one of those rare times that he has the right time. Good character based drama, with a bit too much […]

    Easier With Practice (143/88)

    EASIER WITH PRACTICE (iTunes) – This is a film about awkward people, phone sex, and how real people disappoint. Sort of. A man answers the phone in his motel room, and it’s a woman seeking phone sex. This turns into quite possibly his most serious relationship ever with another human, let alone with a woman. […]

    Captured (95/59)

    CAPTURED (iTunes) – Clayton, a Canadian ex-pat living in the Lower East Side of New York City documented a huge amount of what happened in a relatively small section of this dynamic section of the city. Art, poverty, social action… And he was there with his cameras, sometimes getting arrested, and sometimes getting cops fired […]
