  • Man Hunt 1941

    ★★★½ Rewatched 27 Oct, 2014

    From a high cliff overlooking the Nazi headquarters at Berchtesgaden, a sniper’s crosshairs center on the figure of Adolph Hitler. How’s that for an opening scene? Now imagine watching this American-made production in 1941, when Hitler is alive and well, and the United States hasn’t quite gotten dragged into World War II just yet.

    Fritz Lang was declaring was on Hitler and the Third Reich.

    Part 1 of a new series, "Fritz Lang At War!"

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    A stylish, ridiculous, rock & roll monster bomb. Lots of rampant silliness and creativity on display.

    I've been waiting anxiously seven years for Alfonso Cuarón to bless us again. It's been that long since Children Of Men, a film so phenomenal and powerful that it changed the way I view and think about movies. It was one of my first HD-DVD purchases, and went on to become the most watched in my collection until the format eventually succumbed to Blu-Ray.

    Gravity is likewise an astounding and absolutely gorgeous film, and regardless of how you may end…
