I never know what to expect when taking on a Western for review. There of course are those films that are “true” Westerns with the usual gunfights, law men, and cactus terrain and then there are the … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

While investigating the murder of her father by her blind younger brother, a young woman disturbs the vengeful spirit of Elizabeth Short, known in legend as “The Black Dahlia”.

REVIEW:

I’m sure that writer/director Brandon Slagle had a vision when it came to this project, and I would think that he was probably pretty happy with the way the film turned out, but it either went over my head, or I just missed … Continue reading

Singapore-Sling-1990-Movie-Nikos-Nikolaidis-7

SYNOPSIS:

A man searching for his long-lost lover is kidnapped by her killers, an insane, mother-daughter duo, and they force him to commit various sexual atrocities with them.

REVIEW:

If you watch just the first few minutes of Singapore Sling, you’d swear it was an old, noir-y detective film. It is shot in black and white, it is dark outside, and the rain is pouring down. Two women are digging a ditch/grave. A guy … Continue reading

This is the time of year when we are inundated with reruns of animated holiday shows we have seen countless times, shows or movies most of us will admit to being sick of. Sure, maybe the kiddies will enjoy them but it’s time to move on and … Continue reading

The-Boneyard-1991-Movie-7

SYNOPSIS:

Children turned into zombies wreak havoc in a coroner’s building with just a burned-out psychic, an experienced cop and two coroners to stop the madness.

One of the obscure lost gems of the nineties was a film by the title of “The Boneyard” which stood out for the fact that it included the rare inclusion of actress Phyllis Diller in a horror film starring role. I have first heard about the film … Continue reading

Film Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

Hobbit-desolation-Smaug

SYNOPSIS:

Gandolf the Grey continues to lead Bilbo Baggins, Thorin and the band of dwarves to reclaim Erebor from the fire breathing dragon, Smaug.

REVIEW:

With The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, director Peter Jackson continues the adventures of the courageous Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, in the second in the trilogy of films adapting J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic fantasy novel. There is no doubt Jackson is a master story teller, film maker and director … Continue reading

Film Review: The Last Days on Mars (2013)

The-Last-Days-on-Mars-2013-Movie-9

SYNOPSIS:

A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.

REVIEW:

Our little red neighbor residing just over the fence at 34 million miles away has been poorly represented in film since Arnold saved the mutants in 1990′s “Total Recall.”  Even denying the pointless remake’s existence, you’re still left with garbage.  At least the Val Kilmer bomb “Red Planet” and Carpenter’s unintended comedy … Continue reading

Film Review: Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony (2012)

Bronies-2012-The-Extremely-Expected-Adult-Fans-movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A film profiling the unusual cross-demographic fandom of the ostensibly girl oriented television series, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (2010).

REVIEW:

So the question here is what are “Bronies” and why are we reviewing a film about them? After receiving this documentary-style film with a peculiar title attached to it, I thought it might be “just off beat enough” to have some cult associative qualities to it. Knowing … Continue reading
