WORLD WAR Z – THE TENTH MAN

You all know that the miracle isn’t that great films are made, right? The miracle is that movies get finished at all in any semblance of completion much less take our brains and hearts anywhere worth going. Or at least let us be entertained for a couple of hours. And us armchair quarterbacks love to […]

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

Less a review of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and more an appreciation.

CLOVERFIELD: BLACK METALLIC ROAR

CLOVERFIELD vs. Highway 62. WHO WILL BE LEFT STANDING?

QUARANTINE – yes, I finished it.

QUARANTINE sets up nicely but doesn’t quite get it together.

Before Vertigo Walked the Earth

I bet I’ve used that title line before, actually. Oh well, the classics never lose their lustre. There was indeed a time, before Vertigo was a twinkle in Karen Berger’s eye, that most of the (good) weird, crazy stuff we associate with the imprint was actually part and parcel of the post-Crisis DC Universe. Animal […]
