Television series Rod Lott
While a bit too stiff-upper-lip for my tastes, Synapse Films’ release of the British TV series Chiller is welcomed nonetheless. Any release of a horror anthology is, especially one this little-seen.
Western Rod Lott
Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.
Thriller Rod Lott
Just six days into his residency, Dr. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom, The Three Musketeers)
already has his share of minor screw-ups: His handwriting is illegible,
and he prescribed penicillin for a patient who was allergic to it.
Documentary Rod Lott
I was incorrect in thinking the documentary I Am Bruce Lee
wouldn't reveal anything new about the screen's greatest martial
artist. While not exactly earth-shattering, the facts I learned numbered
If you thought the movie looked good before, you don't know ‘Dick.’
Family Rod Lott
Unlike Madonna, Dick Tracy has aged quite well. Although considered somewhat of a disappointment upon its summer of 1990 release, unfairly attached with Batman-level
expectations, Warren Beatty's film actually is quite successful in
achieving its goals, which is even more apparent now that it's made a
long-overdue Blu-ray debut from Walt Disney Studios.
Sci-Fi Rod Lott
Like The Punisher,
Judge Dredd serves as judge, jury and executioner, all rolled into one.
Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd also received a cinematic reboot in an
attempt to right precious filmmakers’ wrongs.
Thriller Rod Lott
César (Luis Tosar, Miami Vice) works as a concierge at an
apartment building in Barcelona. He handles the door, the mail, the
plumbing. Although he enjoys an amiable rapport with many of the
residents, he is thoroughly unhappy.
Comedy Rod Lott
Spun off from the hit British TV series that recently was remade poorly for MTV, The Inbetweeners Movie follows the original show’s core quartet of socially awkward lads on vacation — er, sorry: “on holiday.”
