The Village (2004)

This is my audio review of The Village (2004). Directed by M. Night Shyamalan. With Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt, Joaquin Phoenix, Bryce Dallas Howard. A series of events tests the beliefs of a small isolated countryside village. It is a much loved film by me and select few others. It didn't do amazingly at the box office but I find this spooky film mesmerizing and profound. Have a listen and find out why.

Midsommar

7/6/2019
More
Ari Aster has given us a second horror film and he calls it “Midsommar.” Did I like it? Eh, not really. Maybe more than Hereditary, his first horror film. The visuals were brighter and the black comedy more prevalent. I’ll call it part of his formula. Let me explain that, he researches horror from the 70’s and transfers the tropes into his new horror films. Hereditary was heavily influenced by Rosemary’s Baby; Midsommar is a very near kin to The Wicker Man. I guess he’s growing on me. If we...

Godzilla (2014)

I had a lot of fun here talking about this film. As I say in the show, it was an incredible reminder for me that I needed to see it. After all, 2014 was 3 years ago and I somehow missed this action/thriller? Shall we call it a horror? Eh, maybe not but so so good. The monsters are glorious and so much fun to watch.

Glassland

6/19/2019
More
There is a scattered and often intriguing plot here with the incredible performance of Jack Raynor, I won’t criticize the plot much. He carries this film and makes it amazing. Glassland (2014) 1h 33min | Drama | 18 March 2016 (USA) Set in Dublin, ‘Glassland’ tells the story of a young taxi driver who gets tangled up in the world of human trafficking while trying to save his mother from drug addiction.

Airplane

6/11/2019
More
Great comedy like this doesn't just fall out of the sky. Much should be remembered about how the three directors worked for years to build a style of comedy in a theater group they would later mold into the 1980 film Airplane! In addition to being laugh-a-minute hilarious, it also stands as evidence that hard work pays off in Hollywood. Airplane! “A man afraid to fly must ensure that a plane lands safely after the pilots become sick.” -IMDB Cast Robert Hays Ted Striker Julie Hagerty Elaine...

Ma

Jason Blum has given us a winning horror this time! It's a good thing too because I was starting to wonder if horror would reside in his films anymore. Ma wants to give kids booze, ad they are all to happy to accept. But could there be an ulterior motive? Plus I give podcast updates, movie news, and my 50th birthday update since I am turning as such tomorrow!

A weird movie I love to watch again and again. Martin Scorcese did an amazing piece of art here. It's a film that creates a creepy atmosphere and delivers some great performances along the way. Listen to me talk about it here in this 5 minute review. NOTE: This is from last year when I was doing much shorter shows. After Hours (1985) R | 1h 37min | Comedy, Crime, Drama | 11 October 1985 (USA) An ordinary word processor has the worst night of his life after he agrees to visit a girl in Soho...
