Something to Watch: Discs

Some amazing short animations have been collected up in Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection, which I incorrectly identified as being available last week. Most of them are fantasy, and one or two are sci-fi. Non-genre but no less surreal for that, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared is a […]

Something to Do: Movies

The clear winner this week is the reboot of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., bringing the 1960s best Spy TV series back to life again. The premise is slightly different from the original, or perhaps this is an origin story, since Napoleon Solo is a CIA agent while Illya Kuryakin is a KGB operative rather than […]

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies, Dracula Untold is a rather interesting variation of the Vampire legend, with Vlad Tepes portrayed as a good man doing whatever it takes to save his people and family from destruction. The twisted comedy Hector and the Search for Happiness stars Simon Pegg as a psychologist who needs to find out if happiness […]

Something to Watch: DVDs, 10Jun14

After a night in jail, four hung-over friends and one female officer emerge to discover their city ravaged by a zombie outbreak cause by a meteor shower. The other film choice isn’t genre as such, but an esoteric and visually stunning production called Visitors, a non-verbal film […]

Kingdom of Dreams and Madness

The article the folks at Otaku USA did on it was really quite interesting, and I am now looking forward to seeing it, as soon as they release a version in English, or at least with […]

Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?

The film Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy? is made by Michel Gondry, the man who did Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, and stars MIT’s Noam Chomsky. Gondry also did the interesting animation for the documentary, which has a nice texture to it and visually enhances the dialog. […]

Something to Watch: DVDs

There are a couple of live action movies coming out this week that look interesting, and I think Bunraku will beat out the competition by a noticeable amount. It had a very limited theatrical run, so for most of us this will be our first shot to see it. Stars include Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, […]

Somthing to Watch: DVD’s

What If… stars Kevin Sorbo as the man who gets a glimpse of what his life would have become had he made different choices. Yes, we have seen this before in many different movies, but I think the actors this time around bring a unique perspective. Surviving the experience with these kind of glucose levels […]
