Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury… There will be spoilers, but as these films are decades old, if you haven’t seen them yet I’m not concerned about ruining them for you if you insist on reading ahead first ­čśë That’s the trouble with classics, I guess – that everyone is always spoiling them! I discovered […]

Short review of Powaqqatsi. See it if you somehow haven’t already. I finally saw it a few months ago and it haunts me to this day. So beautiful is the music. The scenery is powerful. And that really moving music from the finally of The Truman Show is actually from this, so there’s that… It’s […]

I had a productive weekend and took in two films. They were both entertaining and they were both empty. I’m not sure how a film can be both entertaining and empty but it happened twice in one weekend. My thanks to dbmoviesblog and moviebabblereviews for first drawing my attention to these films. First up: A […]

Double Down is probably the greatest film ever made. Seriously. Except for maybe Neil Breen’s other films. Using no small amount of stock footage and free-use music, Neil Breen manages to capture a nightmarish, tortured reality in such a way as only the greatest of filmmakers could ever hope to achieve.

In this post I hope to share with you, gentle reader, why I chose who I chose to write about for my Mother’s Day post. First, I’ll give credit to some honorable mentions: Donna Reed’s Mary Hatch in It’s A Wonderful Life certainly came to mind, but her role in that film really emphasizes her […]

Its world is overrun with chaos and immorality. Big government bunglings produce no shortage of unfortunate outcomes in one failed attempt after another to fix what […]

You might be wondering why I talk about and review films decades of years old. I’ll tell you. It’s because they’re good and worth talking about. They’re worth remembering. The Gunfighter from 1950 reminds me of The Twilight Zone. It is almost like an extended episode. You have the black and white, dramatically lit scenery. […]

This one left me speechless (a babbling brook of mindless expletives aside). Part horror film, part war film, part government/military conspiracy coverup film, part supernatural thriller, Jacob’s Ladder hit me harder than a beat up old car driven by demons speeding down an alley right for me. There are several films here in this one […]

It’s that spooky time of year again and I have formulated my latest opinions, so listen up. For starters, I want to update some of my opinions. The Witch, in particular, is much better than I first believed. I wrote here that I did not expect to be talking about The Witch in five years. […]
