THE VAMPIRE’S COFFIN – Temple of Bad

8/6/2016
More
Let’s not mince words about this: THE VAMPIRE’S COFFIN is a goofy movie, a Mexican horror-fest with rubber bats, balsa wood coffins, poorly choreographed fight scenes, and a “hero” (the star of THE BRAINIAC, actually) who caps off practically every scene by coming close to wetting his pants. It also happens to be a surprisingly … Continue reading »

ICETASTROPHE – Temple of Bad

6/13/2016
More
Ever wonder what your cats do when you’re not around? Sorry to disappoint you, but likely they climb up on the couch and go to sleep. Ever wonder what kind of film Syfy runs when nobody’s watching? Very likely it’s ICETASTROPHE, a virtual non-entity of a natural disaster movie in which a meteor somehow manages to … Continue reading »

PATCH TOWN – Temple of Bad

4/27/2016
More
Oh, sure, anybody can look at a ROBOT MONSTER, a BIRDEMIC, a XANADU and say, “Wow, that’s stinky.” It takes next-level insight to take on the likes of PATCH TOWN, an ambitious tale of a grown up Cabbage Patch doll breaking out of the gulag-like factory where he’s enslaved to find the little girl who … Continue reading »

APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD: You Can’t Steam-Clean Steampunk – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

3/25/2016
More
Soooo much to cover in one, brief segment! First, I look at the French animated film APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD, and how it takes on the genre of steampunk in a way few steampunkers dare to consider. Then I have some belated thoughts on the entertaining comic book movie, DEADPOOL, and highlight a standout … Continue reading »

ZOOTOPIA: The Furry Fight Against Trump – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

3/17/2016
More
Here’s a curious thing: A fun, funny, action-packed animated family film that just by happenstance strikes at the very core of the ugliness behind the presidential campaign of a certain, stubby-fingered, orange-American. Couldn’t have been by design, not with production schedules for CG animation being what they are, but there it is: ZOOTOPIA — anthropomorphized … Continue reading »

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: THE MACHINE

8/23/2015
More
“The Machine, Dan? The Machine? Surely you must mean Ex Machina, the dark, sensual drama about a young programmer falling into the thrall of an eerily human-like android, the film that grabbed so much attention earlier this year. That’s the film you’re talking about, right?” No, no I’m actually talking about The Machine, another film … Continue reading »

JOURNEY TO THE SEVENTH PLANET – Temple of Bad

8/13/2015

You know, we’ve always considered as our prime mission an elevation of the level of discourse in movie podcasts. Much like Cahiers du Cinema, we seek to enshrine the world of film as a true artform, analyzing the efforts its creators’ invest in fulfilling their unique visions, and exploring how the results serve to elevate … Continue reading »

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: SELF/LESS & JELLYFISH EYES & A HARD DAY

7/19/2015
More
This is a real “watch this, not that,” segment this time. Self/less was the “serious” opening last weekend — directed by overt stylist Tarsem Singh, starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley — and the worst sin that could be leveled at it was that it was kind of stoopid. But then, the weekend also saw … Continue reading »

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: THE MIDNIGHT SWIM

7/5/2015
More
You can be forgiven. If your first thought when you hear the phrase, “found-footage mockumentary” is a sincere wish that somebody should have released a Web virus long ago to wipe every copy of The Blair Witch Project off every server on Earth, that’s certainly understandable. So I’m aware of the risk I’m taking by … Continue reading »

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: INSIDE OUT

6/28/2015
More
Okay, right, yeah, sure, sure: Inside Out is a wall-to-wall wonder, good news for anyone who despaired that the animation studio, Pixar — after numerous missteps — had lost its mojo, and who, frankly, would’ve rejoiced in any glimmer of the ol’ Pixar verve now. It’s better than that, far better. But while you’re alternating … Continue reading »

A TRIBUTE TO CHRISTOPHER LEE – The Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast

6/19/2015
More
No life is forever, not even that of the man who played immortal vampires, mouldering corpses, and psychotic satanists. Christopher Lee had so permanently placed his mark on the world of fantastic film that his death this past week sent a shock wave through film fandom, so assured were we that he’d always be around … Continue reading »

Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: JURASSIC WORLD

6/18/2015
More
Seriously critiquing a film that in its first weekend has managed to gross over a half-billion dollars worldwide is not unlike trying to hand-feed a pork chop to a velociraptor — risks are involved. Nevertheless, there are moments in Jurassic World where it’s clear the makers intended something more ambitious than just giving the audience … Continue reading »
