Perfume: Ready for Prime Time

Perfume started life as an electronica oriented art-rock band back when they lived in Shibuya, and they have evolved wonderfully in the past decade. They have a tasty new tune to share, and although the versions available for posting online are short, they illustrate the power the full version brings to the table.

Kitten Witch

Kitten Witch is absolutely adorable, as you are about to see. Written by James Cunningham with cinematographer Oliver Hilbert, you may feel the need to watch it again and again.

For the second week in a row we get a movie worth checking out. Annihilation is based on the multiple award winning book of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer, and since it is the first book of a trilogy there may be more coming if this one does well. As with most books turned […]

There hasn’t been anything worth mentioning for a while, but this week there are a couple of good choices. Top of the list is Marvel’s Black Panther, possible the only Marvel superhero to address the U.N. periodically as part of his day job. As near as I can recall, anyone else that went before the […]

The winner this week has to be The Shape of Water, a story by Guillermo del Toro that seems to be an evolution of one of the characters from his Hellboy films. I am looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen.

Something to watch; Discs

It actually starts playing on Wednesday, to take advantage of the long holiday weekend. John Cusack’s new film Singularity could be interesting, but the trailer makes me […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Topping the list, Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets was an instant classic that didn’t do well in the US, since almost no one here was familiar with the French comic it was based on. We get another French film this week as well in the form of the animation Leap!, original title […]

This is the second DC Universe movie in a row I am excited about (at least I don’t think there has been another since Wonder Woman), I have been looking forward to Justice League for over a year.

There are some great films playing this weekend, but almost all of them seem to be at film festivals. The latest iteration of Murder on the Orient Express looks like the best option to me, but while the book was a masterpiece and the cast is world class, it really isn’t science fiction or even […]
