Crisis: The big pharmaceuticals’ “Holy Grail”


My problem with films like these is that they are made by and for highly ignorant people, who don’t really know anything about the 9/11 attacks. They walk away feeling like experts, while having investigated essentially nothing, except the discrepancies in that one guy’s case. In the big scheme, this story has nothing to do with understanding the attacks at all. Nothing.

Kingdom – Review

Set in ancient Korea, this gory war tale brings the zombies in a fresh way.

This was another series that should have appeared on my binge list. The story revolves around power and the monarchy. Ruthless, cunning, malevolent people create the plague deliberately.

The first-born prince slowly comes to understand the plot behind the madness. He is being squeezed out as illegitimate by the emperor’s new wife.

The zombies are fast and overwhelming. Setting it back when before computers helps to transport the audience to an alternative world where the questions seem larger than life. The playing field is more even, and the zombies are a serious threat. The rivalries in the imperial court play out in parallel with the ever-growing zombiepocalypse, and so it remains interesting.

Neill Blomkamp Secretly Filmed a New Supernatural Horror Movie Called DEMONIC

PFB readers will know Neil. Looks like another one to catch.

I knew from the trailer that this would be going to the top of my queue.

Turns out, it’s brilliant, one of the best American movies of the past few years. The acting is fun and the characters hilarious.

But more, it’s a whodunnit crossed with a Hitchcock thriller, so that not even the characters know what really happened. The twists pile on, leading me to suspect a bit of shark jumping at first, but the plot was so tight I had to relent.

So, this is another must-see, and it touches on elite depravity, the children of privilege and their mammon cult. A true dark comedy, we need more like this.

This is one of the crucial American stories, and everyone should watch it.

Harriet Tubman is one of the few black women taught about in schools. Her story is a bit santized there, without the visceral experience a movie can bring. While this is drama and not straight history, it does give a real feeling of the time. The characters are quite understandable–all of them.

The actress playing Harriet is strong, with much presence. Her story was even more badass than taught in K-12.

Despite Harriet herself being a wild-eyed true believer in religion, the film works. Handling sensitive topics is key so that it never becomes preachy.

There was, of course, much dramatic license taken in parts, but it holds up due to the sheer magnitude of her life. Live free or die trying. This is a story for right now.
