Something to Watch: Discs

This time Movies have Ex Machina, a cybernetic tale of the birth of AI as haunting as it is thought provoking. While not as relentlessly kill crazy as the Terminator series, you do get a glimpse into the birth of that attitude among the biologically challenged, and the kind of events that might provoke it. [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies have Last Knights this week, which comes under the Epic Fantasy category. The film did not do well with the critics, and I don’t believe I will be watching it myself. Much more interesting is the indi film Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, about a Japanese office assistant who mistakes a VHS thriller for a [...]

850 Meters

Joeri Christiaen’s amazing animation 850 meters was produced by Thuristar in coproduction with Lunanime, and it has been screening in festivals as well as airing on CANAL+ in France and Ketnet (VRT) and Ouftivi (RTBF) in Belgium. This particular version is in English, which I can follow a bit easier than the original language (French, [...]

Kung Fu Killer starts today

When I put together this week’s Something to Do: Movies entry, I somehow completely missed the new Hong Kong Martial Arts epic Kung Fu Killer. It isn’t exactly in wide release, but a lot of the Chinese owned AMC Theater Multiplexes will be carrying it. It is put together by the team that did IP [...]

Something to Do: Movies

I spoke too soon in Monday’s post about this weekend; I didn’t know then that Snow Girl and The Dark Crystal would be in the theaters this Friday. It is Well Go’s first 3D Theatrical Release, which is a romantic fantasy adventure about the legendary hero Zhong Kui. He was a warrior with mysterious powers [...]

White Ghost trailer

This is actually the Outcast trailer, but Nick Cage went so over the top yet again I had to rename the post to his character. This one looks like it will be a lot of fun, and I will be in the theater for it. I would have been in the theater for it 6 [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

7 Assassins is the movie this week, about a group of assassins who have banded together to rid the government of corruption. This movie is quite good, even if it does have a death toll that could rival a Shakespearean tragedy adapted by George R.R. Martin, as the reviewer linked here said. TV has Continuum: [...]

Męskie Granie Orkiestra

The first track is 2014′s Elektryczny, the second is 2012′s Ognia!, and the third is 2013′s Jutro jest dziś. The Męskie Granie Orkiestra (Men Playing Orchestra) is one of the more interesting bands to come out of Poland this decade. A big chunk of the reason is they are more of a project than a [...]

Kill Dil: Music and Trailer.

The entire collection of excellent audio from Kill Dil, the Bollywood variation on Kill Bill, sort of. Except with a different plot, a great collection of music, and you can dance to it! It should only take you about 40 minutes to go through the entire collection, and you can follow that by watching the [...]


Not an aspect of Korean pop music you usually hear much from on this side of the Pacific, K-Jazz has some quite tasty examples, and I thought I would share a few this week. The first track is Bank by Puer Kim from her new mini-album Purifier. She isn’t singing about money here, but how [...]
