Music/DVD Review: BLACK FRANCIS – THE GOLEM soundtrack

THE GOLEM soundtrack - Black Francis

When I first heard Black Francis (i.e. Frank Black, i.e. Charles Thompson) was concocting a soundtrack to the classic 1916 German silent film THE GOLEM, I thought it might be a more traditional kind of score. Instead, true to his music roots, he’s created a more rock and roll soundtrack for this endeavor featuring both instrumentals and actual songs (the songs are featured here on this new CD). This results in one of Francis’ strongest and most consistent albums in years. He originally performed his score live in San Francisco – and this is the studio version of that performance.

DVD Review: BLACK CHRISTMAS – Special Edition

BLACK CHRISTMAS movie poster

For decades, many cited HALLOWEEN as being the first true slasher film, igniting a subgenre that continues strong to this day, but it was this curious little exploitation film that set the bar for all slasher films to come.

It’s the holiday’s again, so now, is as good as time as any to revisit why BLACK CHRISTMAS, is hands down the best Christmas-themed horror movie (sorry SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT).

DVD/Blu-ray Review: 24 – SEASON 8: THE COMPLETE FINAL SEASON

24 - SEASON 8 - THE COMPLETE FINAL SEASON DVD | ©2010 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Day Eight proved to be the final day for 24 the TV series as the real-time series (chronicling a major U.S. crisis in a 24-hour period) waved goodbye in the same aggressive manner in which it began.

Kiefer Sutherland toplined the series as former Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer. Over the course of eight seasons he lost so many of his loved ones, so much of his mind and soul and of course his privacy, he was a man without a country – a man without a home.

DVD Review: STARCRASH – 2-DISC SPECIAL EDITION

STARCRASH - special edition DVD | © 2010 Shout Factory

Some times movies are bad because they don’t try hard enough to be good. Other times, movies are so bad, they’re amazingly good, which is the case of the long-lost 1979 Italian science-fiction cult flick STARCRASH. It’s badness comes from its earnestness and ambition. It has terrible dialogue, the occasional crappy special effect and a story that really doesn’t make a lick of sense.

The X List: INCEPTION is one of the Highlights to DVD Releases This Week

(c) 2010 Warner Home Video. INCEPTION DVD

INCEPTION – The science fiction fantasy movie is no doubt going to be the most popular title of the week. There is a ton of stuff to digest in the movie and I think watching it once is almost doing the film an injustice. Actually, it might take more than one viewing to actually “get” what is happening. In this world, dreams are no longer just our own but used to extract information from others and learn secrets of the people in high power positions. But along with any supernatural situation, the dangers while in the dream world are as real as they are in the real world.
