Blade Runner 2049 (USA 2017)

images(This new Gutenberg–style of posting is taking some time to get used to. It feels like I’m typing this from the future) Anyway, the Hollywood hacks struck again last year with this beautiful looking flop. When it comes to sequels and prequels, the suits of Tinseltown cannot help themselves from reaching for that same old bottle. Despite increasing public scorn for some of these unnecessary products its become an addiction that Hollywood cannot give up.  [Read more…]

The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2 (1997)

With Jurassic Park being such a huge success, how can you make a sequel? This film was actually based loosely on a sequel novel, The Lost World, that Michael Crichton wrote.

Psycho 3 (USA 1986)

psycho3Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the bathroom. Norman Bates is watching you. Like God, he is watching all of us. Particularly young ladies with loose morals (or should that be bowels?) who believe they are safe just because they are sitting on the john…I love the screenplay here. As a poster flick for the tacky 80s this artful product is cheap and nasty. Like Donald Trump. The addition of sleaze bag character Duane Duke was a masterstroke. He is comedy gold: ignorant, yet as inoffensively shallow as a child’s paddling pool. [Read more…]
