Chandler' Trailers: "Lost in Space" (1998)

    Nostalgia often bathes a rosy patina upon material, which by way of sentiment or initial exposure during a more innocent and impressionable age (i.e. we were too young to know any better), finds a contented foothold in the back alleys of the memory, paying little heed to the caveat that all that glitters in the mind’s eye is usually fool’s gold. 278 more words

Magic in the Moonlight

Woody Allen is a bit like the Arsenal of movie making. He laces up each season, diligently delivering a new picture to compete with contenders old and new. 588 more words

Dillinger (1945) Max Nosseck

Lawrence Tierney as John Dillinger is pure evil in this Poverty Row “epic” film from Monogram Pictures. From the opening moments right down to the expected final shoot out at Chicago’s Biograph theater there is not one second where you feel any sympathy for the infamous outlaw. 545 more words

Lucy (Luc Besson, 2014) 3.5/5

Luc Besson doesn’t do subtle. He films like he is walking a tightrope, offering the audience frantic adventures, never knowing exactly where they might be going. 230 more words
