Beauty And The Beast (Le Belle et Le Bete) (film review by Frank Ochieng)

It seems as if big screen dueling cinematic fairy tales are the trend within the last few years at the box office. Back in 2012 movie audiences were bombarded by the ‘Snow White’ avalanche when filmmaker Rupert Sanders’s ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ had the share the releasing spotlight with director Tarsem Singh’s ‘Mirror Mirror’, although Singh’s whimsical narrative had […]

‘Dead-End Drive-In’ is directed by Brian Trenchard Smith and includes a couple other things he directed in the extras. 1988-89, the world has suffered three major catastrophes and there is a food shortage. Even so, seeing two brothers, Frank ACTOR and Jimmy ‘Crabs’ Rossini (actor Ned Manning) deal for car wrecks directly after accidents and […]

Blair Witch (film review by Frank Ochieng).

When ‘The Blair Witch Project’ burst upon the cinematic scene in 1999, it was an unspeakable breath of fresh air because it deviated away from the conventional creepers that marched to the same old boo-enhanced beat. Sure, ‘The Blair Witch Project’ certainly was not blessed with the most creative screenplay nor could anybody definitively state that the acting was […]

Matinee (1993) (Blu-ray film review).

‘Matinee’ (1993) is a Joe Dante film I’ve heard of but never actually seen…well, until now, that is. The advance version only has one blu-ray disc so can only address that contents. Even from the beginning, if you’re familiar with producer/director William Castle’s ‘B’ horror films than to realise that producer/director Lawrence Woolsey (actor John […]
