Cycle (2012)

It is hard to even begin to write about this one. After all, what we have here is a very strange Art House Science Fiction movie, jam packed with incredible imagery and following a decidedly non-linear course through what seems almost a simple story — if it weren’t so complicated. A man has been sent back in […]

A Sound of Thunder (2005)

This is one of the most absurd movies ever made. I love it. It shreds the classic, near perfect Ray Bradbury story it’s based on into tiny, unrecognizable pieces. I love it. Its so called science makes less sense than anything you’ll find in any Fifties SF film.  And I do mean any of them. […]

Gintama (2017)

What a strange film. And I don’t mean that in a good way. Gintama is the live action film adaptation of one of the many anime series out there, this one about an Edo era Japan where space aliens have come to Japan.  While they originally came as visitors, that slowly changed and the Samurai […]
