    Oliver Sherman (280/154)

    by  • 6/3/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    OLIVER SHERMAN (iTunes) – Dark with the potential to turn (even more) tragic. A man who suffered massive trauma in war, shows up unannounced at the door of the man who saved his life seven years later. It’s not clear why he’s there; is he there out of friendship or respect, or there for something […]

    The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (279/153)

    by  • 6/2/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD (Netflix) – I think I need to watch this one again; I think I missed something in the middle act with the shifting allegiances of the spies here. This isn’t James Bond style spying, but boring, everyday spying with paper work and drudgery.

    Pontypool, Spiral (276/151)

    PONTYPOOL (DVD) – I did like that Neal Stephenson’s ‘Snow Crash’ featured in a shot here; a book about brain viruses, a movie about brain viruses. Interesting take on zombies, though I think the end is a little bit muddled. I know I feel like killing when I get some songs stuck in my head… […]

    I Saw The Devil, My Name Is Bruce (271/149)

    by  • 5/29/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    I SAW THE DEVIL – Korean thriller with a serial killer and a vigilante cop. Police are searching for a body, and recoil comically in horror when they find it. Melodramatic, and well shot. Beautiful photography and stoic central characters. The cop catches the killer, and nearly kills him. He decides, instead to take the […]

    Kung Fu Panda (269/148)

    by  • 5/28/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    KUNG FU PANDA – This isn’t what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be first a silly animation with anthropomorphized animals with a martial arts angle slapped on top. I was wrong. This is very much a genre kung-fu film first, that could theoretically been performed by live […]

    The Collapsed, The Hangover (268/147)

    by  • 5/27/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    THE COLLAPSED (Carlton) – This is a low budget post-apocalyptic thriller. Not TROMA FILMS low-budget, but a pretty good looking film for the price. With $35000, you can now produce a pretty believable feature film. It helps if the director is willing to do craft services as well as everything else. The acting is fine, […]

    Testament (266/146)

    by  • 5/26/2011 • movies • 0 Comments

    TESTAMENT – Another 1980s Nuke Frenzy film, but this one is a bit weirder than WHEN THE WIND BLOWS or THE DAY AFTER. They spend the first 20 minutes of the film with nothing wrong – no talk of problems, war, etc. It Just Happens. There’s a super bright flash when the bombs go off, […]

    The Rapture, Vanishing on 7th Street, Devil, The Crazies, Pandorum (260/142)

    Post-Rapture movie time… The films that didn’t make the cut for yesterday’s Rapture festival, and now that the world HASN’T ended – punishment time. THE RAPTURE – David Duchovny and Mimi Rogers – check out Duchovny with the hair… all Rapture-Ready with that business-in-front hairstyle. Mimi’s character is so bored with her life, her job, […]
