  5. Do you have May Fever?

    05/06/09 00:13:12 | 0 Comments

    image May MOVIE Fever, that is. :D We all react to media scares in different ways. Some heard about swine flu and decided to give up pork products while others saw this as a great excuse for a BBQ. Meanwhile we at Cosmic Cinema, in partnership with Mise-en-scene Crypt, have decided this is a chance to review those...

  7. Black Candles (1982)

    04/25/09 15:52:23 | 0 Comments

    AKA Los ritos sexuales del Diablo [loosely translated: Sexual Rituals of the Devil] Black Candles is a strange satansploitation film from director José Ramón Larraz (Vampyres, La visita del vicio) apparently made to cash in on The Exorcist. Alas I'm not really sure what to make of this- this crazed piece of euro trash that...
  8. (over) Analyzing a review of UNDERWORLD 3

    02/15/09 18:18:30 | 0 Comments

    Every reviewer brings their own unique baggage to the table but when you're setting out to write reviews to fit into an religious or political agenda, platform, or whatever doesn't the review suffer? How can you honestly appraise a movie if you go with a set of predisposed opinions? To be honest I thought long and hard about those questions. It is a fact reviewers and critics bring their own unique views to reviews. Sometimes we may not even be aware of the fact. I know my likes and...
  9. New Mise-en-scene Crypt coming soon!

    02/13/09 16:51:53 | 0 Comments

    I recently discovered that Google has a 'sites' feature that allows you to set up a barebones web site. The appearance may not be great but it's free. Sure it's a bear to wrangle at times but the reviews, at least, look somewhat similar to how they appeared originally on the Yahoo 360 site once uploaded; something I've sadly never been able to accomplish with the Yuku Blog feature. No matter what I do the font size of all posts seems to be set to "flea poop". So,...
  10. Cosmic Cinema explores MOON 44

    02/12/09 18:22:40 | 0 Comments

    OUTLAND meets BLUE THUNDER when brooding antihero Michael Paré is sent to Moon 44. This was one of those movies that was released straight to the video rental store. I'm not sure how many here have seen it but, if you're like me, the visuals were probably far more memorable than the storyline.

    The full review of MOON 44 is up at

When not trying to capture the ever elusive snark I like to read. I also write. Which, sadly, does seem more like a hobby than anything else most days. Playing around with GIMP is also fun, mostly because I don't draw very well and find this a fun creative outlet within the visual medium.
