Beyond The Black Rainbow is beyond trippy!

I had Beyond the Black Rainbow on my Netflix “My List” for a long time. Whenever I would scroll thru my list my reaction to the description given on Netflix would be something like “Why did I put this movie on my list? Oh yeah, looked like a nice blend of paranormal, psychological thriller with […]

Old films rewatched

This post is really my post Halloween round up of what I watched this horror season, followed by some recent unspook-related viewings worth mentioning. The scary season started with The Conjuring. This movie scared the crap outta me. Everything was done right. Had a story, had context and real characters and that always effective “based […]

A few musings film related

So I’ve been very busy late and haven’t had much chance to watch movies, much less blog about them. What follows pretty much sums up the summer for me: In the Netflix realm, I had my first vanished disk. I ordered the American Solaris followed back to back by the original Russian film (which I […]

My top ten (or so) favorite Science Fiction movies of all time

I’ve deliberately made this list controversial, in the hopes you wonderful readers will jog my memory with your own favorites and remind me of movies I have forgotten about. Of course, this is a list of my favorite movies, ergo, television shows like The Twilight Zone (which is some of the best Sci-Fi in existence) […]

The best of the best – Robot Stories

Inspired by George, over at “George Watches Things”, I am going to embark on a series of “best of” lists.  But I’m going to do genres, for a couple of reasons. First of all, George does a great and interesting set of decade lists already, and secondly, I cannot always compare movies from two different […]

The Tree of Life

This is the movie that broke the camel’s back, to mangle the metaphor [BTW, I won’t be giving it a thorough review here, plenty has been written already – for my opinion of the movie, read on]. I dislike DVDs, generally. Oh, they were great in 1990. They were okay in 2000. But this is […]

Stranded

Stranded is an awesome film. If more movies were like this, I might actually enjoy more movies than I do. And God bless Netflix streaming – it’s better than sliced bread. After almost being turned off from the movie by the nearly unanimous poor reviews, I luckily remembered that most Netflix reviewers are (apparently) 12 […]

Star Warts Episode II: Any Hope Left?

Just watched a documentary called The People vs. George Lucas on Netflix which really covers all the main points of a previous post I wrote (and hits several other points as well, including fan edit films and some Indiana Jones trivia to boot). The film really offered a vent for all the things that George […]

You’re not a bunch of idiots – now go watch Lunopolis immediately!

I’m going to take a break from ranting about genres to write about a film called Lunopolis. I had never heard of it before seeing it listed on Netflix. You probably haven’t either, and this is a real shame. The acting is not superb, but it isn’t bad enough to distract measurably from the plot. […]

Dumbass reviewers suck

Ok, rant time. Sorry, gotta do this. Been watching a lot of movies on Netflix lately, trying to find some worth writing about. I know, I know, still haven’t written that post I’ve been promising, but it’s coming. I want to do a bit more research first. In the meantime… I used to enjoy reading […]
