Doctor Strange (2016) (Blu-ray film review).

Even before I picked up the ‘Doctor Strange’ blu-ray, I had mixed feelings. A female Ancient One. A black Baron Modo, not even called a Baron. Straying from the source material to tick off representative of different types of people seems an odd compromise to the well-known source. Even a female Ancient One but still […]

The two people are the inheritors of Iceland with its beautiful natural scenery and without any Icelanders anywhere. In fact, they are without any […]

Bethany (film review by Frank Ochieng).

For some frightfest filmmakers the challenge of molding and shaping the horror genre in their own imaginative vision is a definite given. The horror genre is a broad scope of a creepy canvas in which moviemakers can manipulate the kinds of colourful fear and tension that they want to convey artistically. Writer/director/producer James Cullen Bressack […]

Kong: Skull Island (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

‘Kong: Skull Island’ has its share of excitement and effective acting, but the film does not fit with any other ‘Kong’ film ever made as prequel, sequel or coquel. The script is creative where it needs to be and funny where it needs to be. If you think you wouldn’t like a live-action film about […]
