Rampage (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Rampage, adapted from the video game from 1986, hits blu-ray today from Warner Brothers. Video game adaptions, as people know don’t always work so well. I for one though was quite happy to give this one a fair shake for two reasons, Dwayne Johnson and Weta Workshop. That being said there are things that I…

The Omega Man (1971) – Boris Sagal

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles book has been nothing short of immensely enjoyable so far, and I love working my way through different incarnations of stories, seeing the way series, ideas, and effects progressed through the ages.

Tetsuo (1989) – Shinya Tsukamoto

I don’t often react with a “What did I just watch?” but this entry on the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list definitely had that effect. This one was bizarre, surreal, with hints of live-action manga, Lycnhian and Cronberg overtones and beyond that, just odd. Running at a sleek 67 minutes all I could do for most…

Warm Bodies – Jonathan Levine
