Film Review: Ilsa the Tigress of Siberia (1977)

Ilsa---The-Tigress-Of-Siberia-1977-movie-Jean-LaFleur-(5)

YNOPSIS:

Erotic adventure in Siberia.

REVIEW:

Poor Ilsa (you haven’t heard that very often, have you?). I feel like, deep down, all she’s ever tried to do was prove that women can be as strong as, if not stronger than, men. It’s a valiant enough goal, but I think the problem lays in her methods. Running a Nazi prison camp, a slavery ring, and an abusive women’s prison, while simultaneously trying to … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

REVIEW: Considering that it was directed by Freddie Francis, certainly one of the greatest minds of my lifetime, I can’t believe I’ve missed this movie until now!

Interestingly, this film really … Continue reading

Coherence-2013-movie-James-Ward-Byrkit.-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

Strange things begin to happen when a group of friends gather for a dinner party on an evening when a comet is passing overhead.

REVIEW:

Hurray! A sci-fi movie! I love sci-fi films, although I’m always a little afraid of a low budget one. It’s hard to do good science fiction on a small budget without the end product being just laughable.
