First Lines: P.G. Wodehouse - The Luck of the Bodkins

Into the face of the young man who sat on the terrace of the Hotel Magnifique at Cannes there had crept a look of furtive shame, the shifty, hangdog look which announces that an Englishman is about to talk French.

Erin Wasson

[Rec] (2007)

A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying.

Skilfully filmed in shaky-cam subjective point of view style, this little shocker does manage hold its suspense and horrify.

Maltin ***: "Icky mayhem reigns in a mucho scary thriller that slaps a gutsy you-are-there spin on zombie flicks. Diluted U.S, remake QUARANTINE lacks this original's tap root, a startling religious rationale."

New Stuff: Brandy

Pretty good new album!

Zhang Xu Chao

Blast of Silence (1961)

A hired killer from Cleveland has a job to do on a second-string mob boss in New York.

Excellent existentialist drama that utilizes the Noirish elements to extremes (e.g. most of the movie is narrated by the protagonist's hard-boiled voice-over).

Georgiana Penova

ph: Daniel Kellermann

The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash (1978) (TV)

Charts the adventures of the prefab four, possibly the most famous band of all time.

Congenial Beatles parody, remarkably accurate in all departments, especially in the musical reinventions.

Rachel Rutt

Magical Mystery Tour (1967) (TV)

The Beatles charter a special bus for a surreal mystery tour.
Silly and sloppy surreal fantasy, nevertheless with some brilliant music.

True! - nervous - very, very nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?

Land of the Dead (2005)

The living dead have taken over the world, and the last humans live in a walled city to protect themselves as they come to grips with the situation.

Embedded in another imaginative claustrophobic setting the plot is too multifaceted and hardly focused on the implications of this future vision.

Maltin **1/2: "Romero's fourth walking dead movie is well produced and suspenseful, with a dose of social satire and a standout performance by Leguizamo...but we've seen it all before, and it never really catches fire."
