Marnie (1964) – Alfred Hitchcock

Vertigo is the next big title in The Movie Book from DK Canada. As I’ve reviewed that previously, as well as a number of the films on the What Else to Watch list, I settled in for the 1964 film, Marnie, directed by the master, Hitchcock, and starring Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery. Hedren is…

Black Moon Rising (1986) – Harley Cokeliss

My time with John Carpenter continues as I delve further into the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. This time around it’s an action thriller that Carpenter penned and sees Tommy Lee Jones, Linda Hamilton and Robert Vaughn caught up in the action. Jones is Quint, a professional thief, who is hired by the FBI to gather evidence…

Inception (2010) – Christopher Nolan

  A heist film wrapped with multiple dreams, so many in fact, that there has been much debate if the top-level, the main reality of the film itself, is a dream. To support this there is much discussion of the character’s totems, an individual item they carry around with them that is uniquely theirs, one…

Issues Vol. 11

It was a quiet week for me at West End Comics this time, which isn’t a complaint, as there seems to be so many other things going on in my life right now, I wouldn’t be able to give a lot of issues my attention, but 4… I can handle 4! And Kirk had come…

Children of Paradise (1945) – Marcel Carne

I like when I come across a film I’ve never heard of, and discover a new favorite. Thanks to the next Drama title in the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book, I’ve discovered my new favorite French film, Children of Paradise. Clocking in at just over three hours, this wonderfully character-driven film focuses…

Man Bites Dog (1992)

The 101 Horror Movies brought me this little entertaining piece, but except for one horrific little scene, the film, for me, landed solidly in the dark comedy section of my brain. This Belgian film blurs reality, as the film’s three directors, Remy Belvaux, Andre Bonzel, Benoit Poelvoorde, are all in the film, using their own names……
