PLANET CULT: RETURNER

6

Returner is a blend of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys, Steven Spielberg’s E.T, and The Wachowski’s The Matrix. If you take into consideration the fact that time travel is something of a tired subgenre of science fiction, then you’re probably thinking Returner sounds like a bad movie. However, the magic of this film is in the ...

Blade Runner Original Soundtrack – Translucent Red Vinyl REVIEW

130319-blade-runner-vinyl-reissue

“Painful to live in fear isn’t it? Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch!” “Oh, I agree!” “Wake up. Time to die.” What’s always fascinated me about movie soundtracks is how the music can sometimes be more telling of what a film’s central theme and tone is more so than the ...

Not to mention, Disney has tried time and time again to reproduce the smash hit they’ve had ...

The Film Frame: THE ARTIST – Silence VS. Sound

1

Where to begin with The Artist? Perhaps I should just go out on a limb and repeat what everyone else has said: “It was sure risky making a silent film nowadays”. Well, yeah, I guess it was risky on some level, but The Artist isn’t a silent film through and through. “What do you mean ...

PLANET CULT: FRANKENHOOKER

3

It’s usually humiliatingly hilarious when a film takes a goofy premise and tries to play it straight; the conventions of cinema allow us to stretch the truth most of the time, but there’s generally a limit, believe it or not.
