Film Review: Dark Feed (2012)

Dark-feed-movie-2012-cover

SYNOPSIS:

A crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a film, when the leaky wet building comes back to life and feeds off its new inhabitants.

REVIEW:

I was so terrified I would be subjected to yet another found footage film. For as much as I throw my darts at this fad genre, Karma should certainly prove herself known and punish me at some point in the game. From … Continue reading

Film Review: Swordfish (2001)

Swordfish-2001-Movie-8

SYNOPSIS:

A secretive renegade counter-terrorist co-opts the world’s greatest hacker (who is trying to stay clean) to steal billions in US Government dirty money.

REVIEW:

Easily one of John Travolta’s greatest roles, “Swordfish” is a collective of great talent, cinematography, script and slick acting. That memorable opening with the Tarantino-like monolog which quickly moves into a hostage-bomb segment ending badly to the glory of some really cool visual FX. “Swordfish” … Continue reading

Film Review: Repligator (1996)

repligator-1996-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

At a top secret military research facility scientists working on rival projects find that their work, when combined, turns soldiers first into sex-mad women and then into walking alligators.

REVIEW:

An ultra-low budget sci-fi comedy this cheerfully inept movie makes a virtue of its trashiness by setting its standards incredibly low and whenever the plot, such as it is, begins to flag throws in some gratuitous nudity to keep your attention. Featuring … Continue reading

Film Review: House of Wax (2005)

house-of-wax2005-movie

SYNOPSIS:

A group of unwitting teens are stranded near a strange wax museum and soon must fight to survive and keep from becoming the next exhibit

REVIEW:

I find it extremely amusing that one of the key marketing tools for House of Wax was that it gives the audience an opportunity to see Paris Hilton get killed! But if that is all of the incentive you need (plus we get to witness her … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

Another dynamically visual product from the Sushi Typhoon gang, “Dead Ball” adds a zany flair to the art of throwing baseballs combined with prison life.

It may come as a surprise but the term “dead ball” is also a real phenomenon … Continue reading

Film Review: Big Fish (2003)

Big-Fish-2003-movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A son tries to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories and myths he told about his life.

REVIEW:

Tim Burton has a knack for creating compelling films. Big Fish” takes something as simple as a metaphor “the fish that got away” and gives life to a feature full of fantasy, comedy and quirky “fish tales”. The film was noted as being based on a 1998 novel of the same … Continue reading

Film Review: The Taking (2012)

The-Taking-2012-Movie

SYNOPSIS:

Two strangers must discover a way to escape a sinister family who wishes to sacrifice their souls to an evil presence.

REVIEW:

Allow me to make myself perfectly clear here.  I love existentialism in film.  From the roots of Bergman, Godard and Kurosawa up to the contemporaries, I can’t get enough of this crap.  Considering some of the stinkers I’ve had to muddle through as a humble service to you, friends, I need a grown-up … Continue reading

Jurassic-Park-3D-1993-Movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.

REVIEW:

I remember the excitement I felt when I bought tickets to see “JURASSIC PARK” for the first time in 1993. Back then it was THE movie to see, with effects like no film before it. Steven Spielberg (with the help of some cutting edge CGI) made the world believe that … Continue reading
