The Wasp Woman (1959) – Roger Corman and Jack Hill

Office drama in a cosmetics company meets terror when I delve into the next title in DK Canada’s highly enjoyable Monsters in the Movies book, and settle in for the next mad scientist picture. A wasp obsessed scientist, Zinthrop (Micheal Mark) is recruited by a cosmetics company run by Janice Starlin (Susan Cabot). Starlin has…

The King of Comedy (1982) – Martin Scorsese

The next title on the What Else to Watch list in DK Canada’s The Movie Book following its recommendation of Taxi Driver is this Scorsese classic starring Robert DeNiro and Jerry Lewis. The film didn’t do well at the time, but I also remember it being marketed as a comedy and for me it was…

Creed II (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Creed II hits blu-ray and DVD today from Warner Brothers, and it continues to prove it is its own beast, while embracing the Rocky-universe in which it is set. And this film does so even more than the first film, because, well this time, it’s personal. Tying in directly with Rocky IV – you know…

All the President’s Men (1976) – Alan J. Pakula

One of the films that are on DK Canada’s What Else to Watch list after I screened Battle of Algiers is one of my favorite newspaper films, All the President’s Men. Based on the brilliant expose by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein the film is as relevant now, perhaps more so, as when it was…

Cronos (1993) – Guillermo del Toro

del Toro’s first feature film is the next title up for viewing thanks to DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book. I recall watching it when it first came to home video years ago, and was more than ready to dive into this take on the classic vampire tale from one of my favorite directors….

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) -Jacques Demy

I was a little unsure of what to expect when I settled in for the next big film in DK Canada’s The Movie Book. IMDB describes it as a drama, musical and a romance. All of which I am okay with, I was just wondering how it would translate for an English viewer who would…

Ashes and Diamonds (1958) – Andrzej Wajda

Post War Poland is the setting for the next big title in DK Canada’s The Movie Book, as I delve into Ashes and Diamonds from director Andrzej Wajda. Marrying a love story with a post-war thriller, and mixing in some drama, this film is a fantastically made film that delves into the horrors of war…

A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) – Elia Kazan

Tennessee Williams’ classic tale comes to the big screen in this 1951 adaptation that is my next stop in DK Canada’s The Movie Book. Now, lets be clear, I’ve never been a fan of Marlon Brando, not ever, he just kind of annoys me, and has his career progressed his lack of professionalism just became…
