Re: Rioting in the U.S.

As a Finn, I find this whole white privilege and collective guilt annoying. We (using a similar historical generalization as black) have had our independence for a bit over a century. Before that, we...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Westerns: Countdown

I was supposed to rewatch Django for this, but like with so many others, it never proceeded beyond a plan. I remember it having some good stuff in it, but I'm not a fan of the plot in general...

There's no official English title but it refers to groups of 19th-century troublemakers and criminals in certain parts of Finland who traditionally carried (and used) knives. Wiki kind...

Vampire Circus is OK. It might have been great even, but due to tight schedule some scenes were never shot and the film was edited from what was done. Also, it was censored and the cut footage...

I haven't seen The Grey Fox but was aware of it (thanks to recent Western HoF, I think). When I finally watched El Topo about a year ago, I wasn't too impressed (I wouldn't go as far as rauldc14...

When speaking of non-Hammer Cushings one must mention Horror Express. It's a pretty neat (and loose) adaptation of Who Goes There? (a novella that The Thing was based on). As a bonus, you get...

Black Moon (1975)

For some reason which I can no longer recall, this oddity by Louis Malle did make its way to my watchlist. It's a dreamlike film with no apparent plot and a ton of stuff that's...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Westerns: Countdown

Bad Day at Black Rock is totally unknown to me, but I've seen Peckinpah's Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid at least as a kid (I'm pretty sure I've rewatched it 15-20 years ago, and kinda feel bad for not...

I just rewatched Angel Heart so I'm finished with the films. I'll have to re-read my old review but most likely I'll just copy it here and add some additional observations from this viewing. Then...

Re: Suggest Any Action/Thriller TV Series

Fauda would be an obvious #1 recommendation. Also Hanna is quite good and the second season is coming in July.

Re: Hammer films

From recent viewings I think Hands of the Ripper (1971) and Vampire Circus (1972) are worth at least a tentative recommendation. I still haven't rewatched Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1974) or The...

The Huntress: Rune of the Dead (2019)

A low-budget Swedish Viking fantasy horror. It isn't as bad as the name implies, but still only barely within the mediocre range. The camerawork is decent and...

I rewatched Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia a while ago and thought it was sort of OK. I don't personally consider it a western, but even if I did it wouldn't have made my ballot. I haven't seen...
