It’s Late, I’m Tired, Delirious and I Thought These Were Funny

28 Months Later?

Completely fake and fan made, but on a seemingly slower news day I thought it worth a post. At first I thought this was just some war footage with the vintage 28 Days music over the top, but it does get zombie-rific towards the end. Although I don’t think the “zombies” in 28 Days ever ate their victims. So while it’s just a fun, fan made...

D-Day

64 years ago today, thousands of brave young men started an invasion that literally saved the world. Normally I would suggest a visit to the VA Hospital or read some accounts of that great day. But seeing as this is a movie site, why not sit back tonight or this afternoon and relive a couple of great pieces in cinematic history? The Longest Day For the old...

Werner Herzog talks Bad Lieutenant and Abel Ferrara

Defamer was fortunate enough to sit down with filmmaking legend, and Row Three favourite, Werner Herzog – ostensibly to talk about his Encounters at the End of the World documentary, but the conversation inevitably slid towards the baffling re-envisioning of Abel Ferrara‘s Bad Lieutenant. A film which according to Herzog is not set in New York, not...

Finite Focus: Warriors of the Lost Wii (Warrior of the Lost World)

There are always joys to be had with Italian cheapo-productions of American genre staples. No I am not talking about the artistically lauded Spaghetti Western subgenre or the collective works of Mario Bava, but rather all of those Hercules and Sinbad flicks that starred Steve Reeves, or Luigi Cozzi‘s infamous Star Crash, that 1978 science fiction flick...

June DVD Releases of Note

Summer is finally here and we’re starting to see some slightly more quality DVD titles of lesser known films of late last year and also some bigger titles from earlier this year. So obviously this isn’t a list of every DVD that is being released this month, but it’s a bit more expansive than in previous months to include some Criterion...
