Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES got nothing to worry about. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES doing quite well, thank you very much. Got the big-budget, Michael Bay treatment (he’s the producer on this one; Jonathan Liebesman directed); came in #1 at the box office this past weekend; has the almost inevitable sequel already in the works. Yup, [...]

Guardians of the Galaxy - Dossier Fantastique 5:29

Guardians of the Galaxy – Dossier Fantastique 5:29

Let the hate mail begin!
In the grand tradition of Cinefantastique (dating back at least to the magazine’s review of STAR WARS), Lawrence French and Steve Biodrowski rake the blockbuster box office hit GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY over the coals in this week’s Dossier Fantastique Podcast.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

Guardians of the Galaxy – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

Welcome to August, the month when studios, having already fired off all their high-profile (not to mention high concept) summer guns, unleash what amounts to their second tier of releases, the stuff that doesn’t automatically trigger broad media attention, things with a more… “culty,” shall we say?… appeal, and things that are, let’s just say [...]

SHARKNADO 2's Dante Palminteri - The CFQ Interview

SHARKNADO 2’s Dante Palminteri – The CFQ Interview

It’s raining sharks, hallelujah! Or maybe whether you’re making that exclamation depends on how highly refined your appreciation of irony is. Yes, SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE is here, moving the mayhem to New York (to the producers’ credit, largely the real New York), larding the proceedings with copious cameos (hallloooo Andy Dick, Perez Hilton, [...]

I Origins/Mood Indigo – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

I Origins/Mood Indigo – Hour of the Wolf Movie Review

This past weekend was just chock full of magical, whimsical women breaking studious, guarded men out of their cocoons. No, not SEX TAPE — I have no idea about how that plot plays out and, besides, that’s not genre. But otherwise, for all their divergent approaches to the material, both I ORIGINS and MOOD INDIGO [...]
