Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I don’t know what is up with Batman but I’m yet to see a silly crossover, which doesn’t work. Scooby franchise connected with him as a fellow amateur detective, and Ninja Turtles, obviously on the grounds of martial arts. It seems they are not based on any specific run of the IP, and thankfully they […]

Pauvre Pierrot (5 min)

One of the earliest animated films, which looks no different to older psy-era low-budget cartoons of 70s and 80s. The only thing it lacks is a deadpan deep voice zany sneering narration.

ゴジラ対ヘドラ (Gojira Tai Hedora)

Doomsday (2008)

Escape from Glasgow. A post-apocalyptic action film, with the escape from structure, which probably could be considered a separate sub-genre. The cinematography is filled with unnecessary cuts, but visual design and its variety is nice. Sometimes this movie outright looks like a Furry Road clone. Which was released seven years later.

But the whole alien thing isn’t resolved, all you deserve is a short “so it goes”, and we never even get to see […]

Await Further Instructions

A lower budget big brother horror film tackling dwindling role of the head of the family, autoritah, and racism in yankeestan’s suburban backwater countryside. It is somewhat reminiscent of Videodrome, and it has a visual style on a more distinctive side. The ending is fitting and doesn’t pull punches. Await führer instructions
