CFQ Laserblast Podcast 2:19.2: I Am Number Four, Solaris, L’Age d’Or & More

Death and Resurrection in SOLARIS (1972).

Death and Resurrection in SOLARIS (1972).

In this edition of Cinefantastique’s weekly round-up of horror, fantasy, and science fiction films on home video, Lawrence French, Dan Persons, and Steve Biodrowski gag and guffaw over new releases I AM NUMBER FOUR, GNOMEO & JULIET, and DEATH HUNTER: WEREWOLVES VS. VAMPIRES. If the new titles leave something to be desired, your trio of CFQ correspondents find solace in some older films making comebacks on DVD and/or Blu-ray: SOLARIS, Tarkovsky’s 197s masterpiece of science fiction; L’AGE D’OR, the surreal collaboration between Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali; and TWIN DRAGONS, a martial arts comedy starring Jackie Chan as identical twins, separated and birth but linked by a psychic connection. Also out on home video this week:  FERTILE GROUND, IMPOSTER, and more.
