Here it is folks, lucky number 21. I’ve been doing this monthly article for nearly 2 years now! Isn’t that something? Fear not, dear reader, my funky film tank is not on empty yet as this month’s edition proves. Let’s dig in!
Rec 3 (2012)
I’ve been reading a lot of negative reviews for this one but I had a blast watching it. Don’t expect a super chiller like the first two. This one’s more of a roller coaster ride of zombies and buckets of gore. It doesn’t hurt that the star of the show is easy on the eyes either.
Man From Earth (2007)
Man From Earth is that rare beast: the intelligent sci-fi flick that doesn’t rely on flashy special effects to tell a good story. It uses script alone to engage the audience in this tale of a college professor that reveals to his colleagues that he is actually a centuries old caveman.
Circus Rosaire (2007)
Circus Rosaire is a fascinating doc about one of the last American families putting on independent circus shows using animals. The film gives a unique look into a family that has been in the biz for several generations, the last of their kind, struggling to keep doing all they’ve ever known.
Wild Geese (1978)
Great action flick in the tradition of the Dirty Dozen or Kelly’s Heroes. Tough old British bastards fly to Africa to extradite a political prisoner only to be double crossed. Now they have to fight their way through hostile territory.
Going Postal (2010)
Not exactly a movie, this mini-series delivers the goods. Funny, unique, and engaging, Going Postal is exactly what I look for in something I want to waste several hours of my life with. Based on the work of Terry Pratchett, the series has buckets of imagination and a good script to boot. Plus it’s Steampunk which is always a bonus in my eyes.
