The Truman Show (1998) – Peter Weir

I return to the science fiction and fantasy genre in the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book for the last time. The final film in this chapter is the previously reviewed The Matrix, and so, moving onto the list of recommendations following that, The Truman Show is the first one listed I hadn’t…

Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1 (2013) – Lloyd Kaufman

Anchor Bay was kind enough to give me my first Troma experience, and I’ll be honest, I really enjoyed it and laughed a lot! I knew going in that it would be crass, bloody and filled with nudity, and I wasn’t far off. Not so much a remake or reboot, as it is a kind…

Lost Girl S04E07 – La Fae Epoque

This week’s episode takes us inside the mind of Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) as he is held by The Keeper (Christine Horne) and the Una Mens, not for his reaction at the end of last week’s episode, but for crimes of his past, murdering both human and Fae. Bo (Anna Silk) refuses to believe Dyson would…

Lost Girl S04E06 – Of All The Gin Joints

This week’s ep of Lost Girl, came across as a slower, gentler story that had some fun moments, and sees some great pay off finally for those who have been waiting for the Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) and Hale (K.C. Collins) romance to come to fruition. We also learn that Bo (Anna Silk) while aboard the…

Lost Girl S04E05 – Let The Dark Times Roll

This week’s episode of Lost Girl picks up exactly where last week’s ended with Bo’s (Anna Silk) confrontation with the Una Mens, led by The Keeper (Christine Horne) and the revelation that she is no longer unaligned, but has in fact chosen to be Dark Fae!! Bo’s reaction is wonderfully Bo. She’s warned that she…

Lost Girl S04E04 – Turn to Stone

Big things this week, as truths are outed, friendships reforged, and the big surprise… Bo (Anna Silk) is no longer unaligned!!! This week we find Bo and Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) rediscovering their passion for one another, while Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) goes through a growth spurt and takes on a recognizable form, not bad for only…

Lost Girl S04E02 – Sleeping Beauty School

After the delightful WTF romp that was last week’s season opener, the Fae world is still missing the unaligned succubus of Bo (Anna Silk), but her friends now aware that she’s missing are pulling out all the stops to find her. The second episode of the season gives us great character beats right from the…

Lost Girl S03E12 – Hail, Hale!

Ahh, now this is what I’m talking about for a race to the finish line! Steve Cochrane pens this week’s penultimate episode of the season and it’s definitely getting ready to pull out all the stops for the finale next week (unfortunately I’ll be away and won’t be able to see it until I get…

Lost Girl S03E11 – Adventures In Fae-bysitting

Aha! This time I loved the Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) and Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) storyline, you know they’re setting stuff up! A field that is a mass grave of light and dark Fae┬áthat someone is hunting down and watching said field via camera… Cool! We learn from this that Bo did not kill the woman, who’s…

Lost Girl S03E10 – Delinquents

After the middling affair of the Ceremony last week, I still think there are lots of layers that can be found in it, but it wasn’t my favorite episode of the season, Lost Girl brought in the heartbreak, the set-up and the guest cast and crew! Scripted by Lost Girl’s creator Michelle Lovretta, directed by…
