SEAGAL! STONE COLD! SHOULD WE CARE? IS IT STILL 1998? The fact is even a time machine could do little to save this formulaic mess. A film with aspirations of being The Rock crossed with Under Siege that ends up … Continue reading

The Reflecting Skin (Review)

Twin Peaks was wilfully weird but knew this, going further and further into the absurd and occasionally poking fun at this very fact. The Reflecting Skin is also especially weird, but unlike┬áthat film (and tv series) it lacks that internal … Continue reading

Alien Uprising (Review)

It was a good 35 minutes into Alien Uprising and despite clear recollection that I had already seen the title in the credits, I was positive I was watching a different movie. The first half hour has idiots clubbing, a … Continue reading
