Sort of a "Whitman's Sampler" of religious, metaphysical, and philosophical beliefs and opinions from all over the world.

In THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, relatively standard mad scientist horror film elements combine with a truly twisted premise.

City Island (2010)
Writer/director Raymond De Felitta has an uncommon talent for creating simple but compelling characters.

With all the problems in Polanski's life (perhaps not undeserved) he can still turn out a gripping film.

Those who enjoyed flying on dragons in 3D in AVATAR can do it again. The plot is overly familiar but still effective.

[Grabsky] is documenting the life of Beethoven, he is illustrating the life with brilliant concert performers playing the music, but he is also having those same experts talking about what is in the music itself.

Mutants (2009)
Fans of zombie films may be a little sorry that so much of the film is familiar. This is a one viewing film. But for that one viewing is a polished work.

Afghan Star (2009)
The film is both optimistic and depressing. This film is about a real war with real deaths that is going on in Afghanistan and one of the battlefields of that war is a pop music contest on television.

What surprised me is that I had some affection for an action adventure film the way I would have in the days of the Ray Harryhausen's best films.

Fans of psychological horror may have seen the material before, but rarely so much of it and rarely is the tone so perfectly presented.

The Wolfman (2010)
The script has some very nice touches but goes over the top in the final act. In many ways it is much more a work of art than the original film, but the original will be remembered when this film is forgotten.

Cindy's conclusions are directly at odds with the evidence on the screen, and the entire story is surprisingly compelling for such a modest effort.

The film opens with a quote from Chris Hedges saying that war is a drug. ... The film makes that quite clear, but I am not sure it says a whole lot more than that.

A day in the life of a man in deep depression.

It is hard to know what Jackson was intending to do with this film. Instead of telling the earth-story he seems to have wanted to give us some indelible images of heaven

The actual story is muddled, but the imagination of the visual imagery is very good.

Pontypool (2009)
This year Canada's PONTYPOOL ranks as high as any United States science fiction films I have seen.

It is odd that a film on such a painful subject in this economy can still entertain. Perhaps the economy even helps it.
