Sabotage

sabotage-02

Not that it was needed when I’m concerned, but Arnie’s been pimping “Sabotage” so much lately I thought maybe, just maybe, this might be something more than a decent action film. It turns out it wasn’t. Decent, yes; but nothing more than that. Arnie plays John “Breacher” Wharton, the king of the war against drugs. Him and his special team performed covert ops for the DEA against the narco cartels, with great success. Breacher, however, loses focus after his wife and son are abducted, tortured, brutally murdered and than mailed to him in pieces. There comes a dark period [...] Continue Reading…

“Black Sails” is STARZ’s flagship (har, har!) show after the end of “Spartacus”. A throwback to the pirate and swashbucklers era, it is a prequel to THE pirate novel, R. L. Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. Alas, I’ve a shameful confession to make: I’ve never read it, so just how much of actual connection there is between the book and the series is unknown to me, aside from the fact that the materials share several characters.

It is 1715 in the island of New Providence, the port of Nassau. “Black Sails” follows Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his crew as they get [...] Continue Reading…

Banshee Chapter

banshee-chapter-05

Having nothing to do with the awesome action series “Banshee”, “Banshee Chapter” is a horror film which is not completely fictional since it deals with the infamous MK-ULTRA mind-control program. The film came to my attention with Ivica’s review on “Movies, films and movies”.

James is a struggling writer who gets hold of an illegal substance called dimethyltryptamine, that is, its derivative #19 aka DMT-19. Because of some old MK-ULTRA tapes he got hold of, he has reason to believe DMT was used in those experiments. The results were intriguing, but very inconclusive, and so he decided to try the [...] Continue Reading…

Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

bwp-01

“Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher” is a DTV sequel to the Marvel Anime series. Usually I stay away from superhero universes. But the Punisher I adore. That is, the brilliant MAX series started by Garth Ennis which presented a very human Punisher living in an ordinary world with no super-powers; a world that was grittier and darker than any inhabited by super-men and monsters. One scene stuck with me, years after reading the comic: Punisher finds out a wife and a husband who had been making pornographic films with their son and daughter. He kills both the husband [...] Continue Reading…
