Who's That Knocking at My Door by James-Masaki Ryan (26th March 2017)

“Who’s That Knocking at My Door” (1968) J.R. (played by Harvey Keitel) is a young adult New Yorker who spends most of his time with his wisecracking rambunctious friends Joey (played by Lennard Kuras) and Sally Gaga (played by Michael Scala), rather than working or making an honest living. One day at the ferry he meets a girl (played by Zina Bethune) who he is smitten by but has no idea how to engage in conversation. Commenting on her French magazine having a photo of John Wayne, he tries to converse about “The Searchers” which she can’t remember quite as well as he could. The two have a long talk where he seemingly dominates the conversation, but she does eventually find charm in him. The girl is a liberal modern girl with very different values and interests compared to the Catholic Italian-American J.R. but through a series of dates together they come closer to the poi...


Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore by James-Masaki Ryan (26th March 2017)

“Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” (1974) Alice Hyatt (played by Ellen Burstyn) is living a hard life. She is in an unhappy marriage with husband Donald (played by Billy Green Bush), a truck driver who is uncaring, abusive, and always getting into a shouting match with the 11 year old son Tommy (played by Alfred Lutter) who uncaringly listens to rock music loudly and plays pranks on Donald to make him angrier. But things get worse for Alice’s household when she gets a call that Donald was killed in an accident. With no prospects and no relatives or prospects in New Mexico she decides to drive back with Tommy to her hometown of Monterey, California in hopes of restarting her singing career which she abandoned long ago. With an extremely limited budget, they are forced to make a few stops along the way in Arizona where Alice could make some extra cash performing songs at local restaurants. Things do not go well as there are very little opportunities for a mid-30s single mother to sing anywhere in Tuscon or Phoenix widely. During th...


Poltergeist III - Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (26th March 2017)

In a review for “Poltergeist II: The Other Side” (1986), I kinda blasted it for coming across like warmed-up leftovers. Aside from a few notable inclusions – Will Sampson, incredible FX work from some of the then-hottest names in the biz – it plays like a rehash of the first film just not nearly as good. It had been probably a decade since I last saw that sequel and my memories were far kinder than reality. When I relayed this to a friend he said, “Oh, man, then you are gonna HATE the next one.” It had also been ages since I last watched “Poltergeist III” (1988) but there was a minor trump card tucked away in my pyjamas: I remember catching the last act of the movie at least a dozen times on cable back in my formative years, so there’s a small soft spot for some of it deep within me. Watching the film now… yes, it is a bad movie and there are plenty of awful moments, but it does deserve a modicum of credit for trying to do things differently than the previous entries. Those things may not have been done entirely successfully but, hey, effort is effort. Carol Anne (Heather O’Rourk...


Deadtime Stories by Anthony Arrigo (26th March 2017)

Whether he is actually a blood relative or not everyone seems that have “that uncle” who, because he is not a parent, lacks the mental filtration most adults employ. His jokes are a little crude, he is more permissive when it comes to “having fun”, and his stories are usually of the not-so-wholesome variety – and sometimes, when mom and dad need a night out on the town, he is charged with watching over their little tikes despite a clear aversion to playing parent. This sort of awkward avuncular scenario lays the groundwork for “Deadtime Stories” (1986), an underrated little gem of an anthology, featuring three twisted fairytales that have been updated to reflect then-modern times. While none of the three segments stand out as particularly well done, the overall film has a strong D.I.Y. ethos; that home brew quality suggesting that, even though it might not be the best horror has to offer, the folks behind the lens were fully committed to making the most out of their project. Think less “Creepshow” (1982) and more “From a Whisper to a Scream” (1987). Little Brian’s (Brian DePersia) parents are out for the night and he is le...


Three by Robert Segedy (26th March 2017)

Three different individuals are thrown together in a life-and-death struggle when their paths cross in this action packed drama directed by Johnnie To. Fans of director To’s work will find much to savor here as he delivers the goods in this tense hospital setting. The tension mounts between the principal characters: Doctor Tong (Zhao Wei), a dedicated sleep-deprived brain surgeon committed to saving patients’ lives, Inspector Ken Shen (Louis Koo), an obsessed police inspector that is willing to bend the law to his will for justice, and master criminal Shun (Wallace Chung), a patient with a bullet lodged in his skull and given hours to live. The three of them are at the heart of this drama that is set on a slow burn setting as To expertly escalates the suspense slowly, notch by notch. The formula is simple, but To masterfully brings things to a cinematic crescendo in a show stopping four minute single camera pan that mixes the best of digital special effects with an amazing piece of choreography that is the shootout scene to top all shootout s...


Fences by Robert Segedy (26th March 2017)

“The past is never dead. It's not even past. “- William Faulkner Troy Maxson (Denzel Washington) is an angry, black man that now finds himself middle aged and still unsatisfied with the world, but also with his family and sole friend, Bono (Stephen McKinley Henderson), and he is constantly raging against the injustices of the world. Gypped out of a career playing pro baseball, he is an ex-con who has served his time, but the past is something that won’t let him be. He carries it on his stooped shoulders, feels it in his weary bones, and tastes it on his tongue with every sentence he utters. He sees his two sons wasting their lives; his older son, Lyons (Russell Hornsby), a struggling musician that always comes around on pay day to borrow money, and his younger son, Cory (Jovan Adepo), that is being led to believe that he has a chance to go play college football and get a scholarship instead of being content with working part time at the local supermarket. Troy doesn’t believe that thin...


Property Is No Longer a Theft AKA La proprietà non è più un furto AKA Property Is No Longer Theft (B by Paul Lewis (22nd March 2017)

Property Is No Longer a Theft (Elio Petri, 1973) Profoundly allergic to money, Total (Flavio Bucci) is employed at a bank, like his now retired father (Salvo Randone) before him. During his working hours at the bank, Total sees and is repulsed by one of the bank’s clients, a wealthy butcher (Ugo Tognazzi). Total becomes envious of the butcher’s wealth and resentful of his own position in life – one of poverty. Where the butcher 'has' in abundance, Total and his fathers 'have not'. One day, a group of armed robbers hold the bank's employees and customers at gunpoint, until the bank’s attack dogs are released. All but one of the robbers escapes; the remaining robber is injured by the dogs and lies in pain on the ground. The butcher, who has visited the bank to ask for yet another loan, steps over to the injured man and kicks him viciously. Total approaches the bank manager and asks for a loan over and above what he is e...


Charlie Chaplin: Essanay Comedies by James-Masaki Ryan (20th March 2017)

Charlie Chaplin: The Essanay Comedies (1915-1916) In 1907, The Peerless Film Company was established in Chicago, Illinois by George K. Spoor and Gilbert M. Anderson who later renamed the company officially on August 10th, 1907 as Essanay Studios - using their initials “S” & “A”. The studio’s short film subjects ranged from comedies to westerns to dramas, featuring up and coming talent such as Ben Turpin, Wallace Beery, Gloria Swanson, among others to make a series of successful works. The most successful came from the founder Anderson starring in the western series “Broncho Billy”. As for the westerns, Chicago was not an ideal place to recreate the settings so the studio set up an additional studio in Niles, California to take advantage of the near-the-desert location. While the studio was best known for the shorts, they also made a leap into feature films in latter years, with the 1916 “Sherlock Holmes”...


Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Third Season by Eric Cotenas (19th March 2017)

The third season of the Fox series Sleepy Hollow – which transformed Washington Irving's sketch of a short story into a supernatural conspiracy thriller in which the British played dirty by summoning up demons to combat the Americans during the revolutionary war, eighteenth-century Ichabod Crane (One Day's Tom Mison) was a British double agent who teams up with cop Abbie Mills (Shame's Nicole Beharie) as Witnesses combatting the supernatural in modern day Sleepy Hollow, traitorous Abraham Van Brunt became in death the headless horseman (who was actually one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse), wife Katrina was a witch and their son the Horseman of War, and seamstress Betsy Ross (Twilight's Nikki Reed) was a busty spy with sex appeal – begins nine months after the climactic e...


Two Films by Lino Brocka by James-Masaki Ryan (19th March 2017)

“Two Films by Lino Brocka” On May 22, 1991 in Quezon City at 1:30AM, a car crashed into a concrete pole after swerving to avoid an oncoming vehicle and two pedestrians. The driver was actor William Lorenzo who miraculously survived after being initially listed as in critical condition. The passenger on the other hand unfortunately died on impact. He was the acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Lino Brocka, dead at the age of 52. Brocka was one of the leading film directors from The Philippines with a filmography of over 40 directorial credits, ranging from commercially successful dramas to very controversial works that got him in trouble with the censors and the government. Most of his films were made during the Ferdinand Marcos regime, where the country was under martial law with media censorship having a huge impact on all Filipino media including cinema. As an openly gay man, Brocka often includes homosexual and transgender characters into his films, sometimes as the main focus and not just secondary characters which caused many issues with censorship, along with his films depicting life in the slums which the ...

Creeping Garden (The) (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (18th March 2017)

The Creeping Garden (Tim Grabham & Jasper Sharp, 2014) In an essay about The Creeping Garden (2014) published in the book Advances in Physarum Machines (2016), the film’s co-director Jasper Sharp suggests that The Creeping Garden is ‘a rare example of an independently-produced feature-length documentary intended for a general audience that focuses on scientific subject matter’ (Sharp, 2016: 789). As Sharp says in his piece, most modern documentaries tend to privilege ‘social campaigning or character-driven narratives’ (ibid.: 791). Certainly, the film’s focus on myxomycetes (slime moulds) is uncommon, but The Creeping Garden also demonstrates an equal fascination in how the world of these ‘invisible’ organisms may be, and has been, documented visually. The Creeping Garden examines the world of slime moulds via the use of time-lapse photography (capturing the growth and expansion of slime moulds), CGI (depicting changes to these organisms on a cellular level), interviews with various p...


Between Heaven and Hell (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (16th March 2017)

Between Heaven and Hell (Richard Fleischer, 1956) Adapted from the novel The Day the Century Ended by Francis Gwaltney, Richard Fleischer’s Between Heaven and Hell (1956) focuses on Sam Gifford (Robert Wagner). A cotton plantation owner from Gray’s Landing, in civilian life Gifford regarded the sharecroppers on his land with scorn, something which caused friction between Sam and his beautiful wife Jenny (Terry Moore). However, when his National Guard unit is mobilised to fight in the Philippines following the attack on Pear Harbor, Sam finds his attitudes challenged when he faces combat alongside men who identify themselves as sharecroppers. Sam soon proves himself to be a hero, destroying a machine gun nest dug into a cliff-face singlehandedly when he is lowered into the maw of the nest by ...


Drive-In Delirium: '60s and '70s Savagery by James-Masaki Ryan (15th March 2017)

“Drive-In Delirium: '60s and '70s Savagery” Trailers for films have been around for more than 100 years from the early days of cinema, taking off especially during the Hollywood transition to talkies in the late 1920s. Featuring the faces of the stars, dialogue clips, action heavy scenes, and narration and explanatory text, it became a standard way to market the film along with posters, news ads, merchandising, and radio promotion and still continues to this day with the same principles. Throughout the years the “art” of the trailers changed with the times and over the years there were trends that came and went. Big text was the norm in the early days but small text became standardized in more recent years. Quotations from film critics were rare in the early days but from the 70s onwards they became a commonplace. Narration starting with “In a world….” or any narration at all has died off entirely in the 2010s. There certainly is an art to the movie trailer with various changes over the years and they are a great way to see how marketing and audience expectations changed. In addition there were highly artistic trailers that did not conform to the masses. Sometimes the trailers didn’t feature any footage from the m...


The Mama's Family Favorites Collection by Eric Cotenas (12th March 2017)

The Comedian's Guide to Survival by James-Masaki Ryan (10th March 2017)

“The Comedian’s Guide to Survival” (2016) James Mullinger (played by James Buckley) is a struggling stand-up comedian. That should be rephrased. James Mullinger is struggling as a stand-up comedian. He has gone through disaster after disaster at various gigs, from jokes not working, losing the way to the venue, getting underpaid, no one showing up, and even the worst of the worst - peeing his pants through nervousness onstage. And to make that even worse, it became a viral video. James is not a comedian by career as he does hold a nine to five job as a magazine editor and the comedy is a hobby on the side. His wife (played by Clair Buckley) is not happy with his choice to do comedy as there is no additional income, and frankly she does not think his jokes are funny. Neither does his boss (played by Paul Kaye), who gives James an ultimatum - a promotion to deputy editor which would kill his time doing stand-up comedy or simply being fired. James reluctantly takes the promotion with his first project being an article about comedy,...


Life on the Line by Eric Cotenas (10th March 2017)

For the last ten years, he has been rigidly by-the-book and safety-conscious on the job with no patience for the latest hires colleague Pok' Chop (The Shawshank Redemption's Gil Bellows) has hired for their contract to upgrade the longest substation in the county before storm season. The primary focus of his ire is Duncan (Final Destination's Devo...

Servant or Slave by James-Masaki Ryan (6th March 2017)

“Servant or Slave” (2016) On January 1st 1901, the Commonwealth of Australia was established, with the six self-governing colonies of Australia united as one with a new federal government and a new constitution. In the first census, there were 3,773,801 people counted in all of Australia, divided by 1,977,928 males and 1,795,873 females. For the census, no Aboriginals were counted as it was a rule drafted in the constitution. The native Australian Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders were considered second class citizens, or possibly less than citizens during the colonization of Australia and the discriminatory stance was kept. With the constitution the new government had full control over the native people’s lands, their money, their livelihood, and their futures, with many Aboriginals forced from their homes, separated from families, and worked for the white man with little or no pay, with wages withheld. In order to essentially erase the native culture, many young children were forcibly taken from their families and placed into institutions. The schools served the purpose of assimilating the children into the new Australian culture. And for the children’s future i...


Poltergeist II: The Other Side - Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (5th March 2017)

The 80's were fertile ground for horror sequels, with nearly every film that was a remote hit scoring at minimum one follow-up. So, it seemed a foregone conclusion that Tobe “Collect the paycheck and let Steven do the work” Hooper’s “Poltergeist” (1982) would exhume (most) of the original’s cast for another go-round. The problem, however, is the film that followed, “Poltergeist II: The Other Side” (1986), proves a sequel rule not only for stellar original movies but for Spielberg titles, too: it isn’t needed. Key word: “needed”. This isn’t commenting on those rare sequel exceptions; this is a fact true of sequels in general. And also sequels to Spielberg films. Look, I enjoy the subsequent entries in the “Jaws” and “Jurassic Park” series as much as every fan of killer sharks and dinosaurs, but were any of them remotely as good as the first? Spielberg has an incredible ability to capture awe and wonder and discovery better than almost any other director out there, but those are filmic qualities that are extremely difficult to replicate. “Poltergeist” took time to uncover the mystery of what is afflicting the Freeling family, sp...

Shackleton (TV) by Rick Curzon (13th March 2017)

A gripping four-part drama about the great explorer s epic Antarctic expeditions, based on Shackleton s own journals. Having had a taste of Antarctic adventure on Captain Scott s failed 1901 bid to reach the South Pole, seven years later Ernest Shackleton (David Schofield) leads his own expedition. Agonisingly close to reaching the Pole, the men have to pull back in an appalling blizzard to reach their ship before the advancing ice cuts off the passage home. By 1911 Roald Amundsen has reached the Pole and Scott and his men, trailing in the Norwegian s wake, have perished.
