… is now up, with four – count them, four – reviews by Yours Truly. There’s well-played cosmological drama Dark Matter (review here), Russian historical epic Iron & Blood: The Legend of Taras Bulba (review here), Austrian WWII caper movie My Best Enemy (review here), and low-budget low-quality 1930s martial arts film Twin Daggers (review here).
… containing, among many excellent reviews, my reviews of brilliant Norwegian actioner pastiche Norwegian Ninja (review here), a true story based on the life of Norway’s very own quisling, Arne Treholt; terrible spoof country-house murder-mystery Dark and Stormy Night (review here), about which the less said the better; and low-budget fantasy film Journey to Promethea (review here), which is a possible candidate for the worst film ever made…
It’s that time of the month again – ie, the beginning – and VideoVista has my reviews of dull, arty thriller I Come With The Rain (review here), Italian-Romanian historial epic Barbarossa – Siege Lord (review here), and four-hour-long woefully amateur slideshow which claims to “prove” the existence of UFOs, Aliens From Outer Space (review here).
This month’s VideoVista is now up, with my reviews of excellent Israeli thriller Ajami (review here), heavy-handed noir The Racket (review here), and sub-standard low-budget thriller Choose (review here).
Also up today is SF Signal’s Mind Meld: Movie Novelizations That Are Actually Good, in which I explain why I don’t think novelizations are a very good idea, and lots of other people actually address the topic.
