IDIOCRACY

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 84 minutes

IN LIMITED RELEASE! We already have a President who lacks the ability to speak in complete sentences and a populace largely incapable of choosing books unless some billionaire daytime TV talk show host tells them what to read. How much further down is there to go, really?

SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME ON MY WAY THROUGH BEST BUY (THE “ESCAPE FROM L.A.” ADVENTURE)

SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME ON MY WAY THROUGH BEST BUY (THE “ESCAPE FROM L.A.” ADVENTURE)

Yesterday I headed to Best Buy to pick up the untainted Star Wars adventures on DVD. I was one of the few strong enough to hold out buying them prior, since I didn’t want the Special Edition versions. But something happened on this trip which I can’t quite explain. I was wandering through the action […]

THE LAST BROADCAST (DVD)
4 Stars

“The Last Broadcast” does a fantastic job of slowly building the suspense and the queasy, unnerving terror up from its slow but amiable start…

RADIANT CITY

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 86 minutes

TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2006 REVIEW! “Radiant City” is a fascinating “thoughtumentary” that should strike terror in the hearts of “bigger is better,” two-car capitalists as it convincingly lays out the inanity of suburban sprawl in an aging society that, according to James Howard Kunstler, is “entering an era of energy scarcity…”

I’M A SUCKER

I’M A SUCKER

So, I finally confirmed to myself that not only am I a sucker, but the whole hobby of my love of film has officially become an obsession. To further exemplify how much of a pure sucker I am, I bought the Limited Edition Star Wars films on DVD, a while after I purchased the boxed […]

HOW THE WORLD ENDS: CONVERSATION WITH RICHARD KELLY

When filmmaker Richard Kelly announced the follow-up to his cult film “Donnie Darko” would be called “Southland Tales,” it registered a strong level of underground expectation. Would it be as confusing? Would it be more mainstream? What the Hell was it about?

BYE-BYE BESSON

BYE-BYE BESSON

French director Luc Besson says that when his latest film, a live action mixed with 3-D animation entitled “Arthur,” hits the streets, his career as a director will be complete. Evidently Besson has long said he would only make ten films and this one is number ten. Nice to see someone French finally live up […]

WHAT’S NEXT FOR PETER JACKSON?

WHAT’S NEXT FOR PETER JACKSON?

Over at Cinematical, Erik Davis opines about what project Peter Jackson might take on next. Apparently he’s optioned the rights to a fantasy trilogy “Temeraire” which according to Davis “reimagines the world of the Napoleanic Wars with the addition of an air force of dragons and valiant aviators.” Neat! Then there’s “The Lovely Bones,” “The […]
