Moonlight Fox (2020) (YouTube Short)

Gonna try something a little different with our latest review… Moonlight Fox is a character created by Jordan Gibson. From what I understand, the character is inspired by the Tokusatsu genre in Japan (Godzilla and the Power Rangers would be the most famous example to those of us who are unfamiliar), but particularly inspired byContinue reading “Moonlight Fox (2020) (YouTube Short)”

Hot Rod (2007)

From IMDb: “Self-proclaimed stuntman Rod Kimble is preparing for the jump of his life – to clear fifteen buses to raise money for his abusive stepfather Frank’s life-saving heart operation.” What I like: From the tone to the score to the montages, this movie is a loving homage to all the 80s movies that featuredContinue reading “Hot Rod (2007)”

Mask of the Phantasm is Batman’s Spider-verse.

The Love Witch (2016)

From IMDB: “A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, with deadly consequences.” What I liked: THE LOOK. This movie was shot (and edited) in an “old-fashioned” way, giving the film a real classic quality to it.

GLOW (tv): a Female’s Perspective

As a product of the 70’s and 80’s, there really wasn’t too much going on except for the Saturday Morning cartoon. I was way too young to understand SNL and was pretty much stuck watching Lawrence Welk (bubbles and accordion music, oh my). One day, my mom introduced something magical to my brother and I. Gorgeous LadiesContinue reading “GLOW (tv): a Female’s Perspective”

GLOW (tv): a Male’s Perspective

Full disclosure: I LOVE pro wrestling. Before you roll your eyes, just be aware that this GLOW tv show is based ON A REAL THING. A real thing that my Mom watched, and made my Sister and I watch with her. Our Mom introduced us to pro wrestling through that original GLOW, meaning I haveContinue reading “GLOW (tv): a Male’s Perspective”

The Terminator Tech Noir Shootout

The coordination of this scene is IMPECCABLE, and is a masterclass in editing: – Sarah ducking at the last moment. – The slow motion dancing (and MAN I LOVE that song). – The slow motion meeting of eyes with Kyle Reese. – ALL THE SLOW MOTION. – The dance music fading into terror as theContinue reading “The Terminator Tech Noir Shootout”
