9 posts from 01 to 27 February 2021.

  • Suffragette

    ISO Standard biopic about a subject which seems dead and buried in modern society. But then at the end there as so many dates which are very recent. The future is here, just not evenly distributed.

  • Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

    A classic British tale: working class hero with dough from his job battles a penniless upper class twit for the “melons” of a girl. Many-a cheese types are consumed.

  • Dog Day Afternoon

    Al Pacino hissing to the crown while miming a cat’s paw remains an incredible image.

  • Free Fire

    Creepy crawlers. Lowlifes dragging themselves through the mud for a bunch of cash. A low-key picture.

  • The Ruins

    This is the worst episode of The Twilight Zone (the killer plants), upgraded to a watchable infection-based horror film. A nice first outing.

  • Underworld: Blood Wars

    Moar shootouts (include video of Burly Brawl).

  • Underworld: Awakening

    Underworld: Epilepsy. Nearly all florescent light is broken, and flickers like hell.

  • Underworld: Evolution

    More gore and guns, with nicer hairy werewolves. The plot thickens a bit, but since nearly all characters die (even the main ones, which come back again), everything is self-contained.

  • Underworld

    Romeo and Juliet with vampires and werewolves, throwing other variations in the mix. The setting is pushed to the recent past where everyone drives Maserati, dresses up like Neo, and shoots either silver bullets or liquid UV light.
