    Year of the Carnivore

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on May 28th, 2011

    Unlike most people my age, I still have a surreal view of love despite a plethora of failed relationships and a horrendous first marriage. Sometimes, I feel like I am the only person who doesn’t have a screwed up concept of love. But thankfully I did find my true love before anything happened to my ideology. Enter the movie Year of the Carnivore, a movie that disguises itself to be about sex when in reality it is more a statement about good old fashioned love.

    The Zombie Farm

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on March 24th, 2011

    “Don’t let the love of your life leave you for a damned Gringo. Come and see us, and I guarantee you that we’ll save your life. United Parapsychologists Of America. Esoteric jobs, spiritual cleansing, taxes and immigration papers…”

    If ever there was a movie that should have fired its marketing department, it’s Zombie Farm. If you read any of the descriptions or look at the cover art, you are expecting this to be one of thousands of movies that offer up gritty images,

    Spooner

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on March 19th, 2011

    Most people know me to be a little bit quirky. *laughter comes from the back of the room*. Okay, very quirky. As to be expected, there are a lot of quirky movies out there for me to watch. But more often than not, most of those movies go way beyond anything I’ve ever thought was entertaining. Now here I am on the cusp of another review and I get a quirky romantic comedy called Spooner. I just hope that the movie I’m about to watch doesn’t involve cutlery and other assorted kitchen gadgets.

    See You In September

    Written by Diane Tillis

    See You in September is Tamara Tunie’s (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) first attempt behind the camera as director and producer. It is a romantic comedy with a cast of recognizable faces, such as Estella Warren from Planet of the Apes (2001) and Justin Kirk from Showtime’s Weeds. See You in September is a lighthearted film for the optimistic romantic in all of us.

    Hunter Prey

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on December 22nd, 2010

    One man. One alien. One choice.

    That’s the tag line for Hunter Prey, the latest project from Sandy Collora, idol to fanboys everywhere thanks to his 2003 short film, Batman: Dead End, believed by many to be the best fan film ever made. Well, after a long wait, he has finally made his first full-length feature film, and though it’s clearly hovering around the bottom rung of the budget ladder, there is much to admire here.

    Dry Land, The (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on November 16th, 2010

    My dad was a Vietnam veteran. He did his time and came home to his wife (and eventually me). Because of when I was born, I never knew my father before the war. Therefore, I can’t really speak on his personality changes after he went off to fight the good fight. But in the same breath, I can tell you that we really don’t talk about that time except in very broad brush strokes. War is heck and hopefully my experience with The Dry Land is one that isn’t such a painful undertaking.
