Movie Review: Annihilation

My husband and I went to see this on a whim (well, for him it was a whim--I'd been wanting to see it) and I'm really glad we got the chance to see it in theaters because it was quite a ride. Annihilation, directed by Alex Garland and staring Natalie Portman, is based on a... Continue Reading →

Movie Recommendation: Hansel and Gretel (2007)

No, I'm not going back on my rants against Disneyfucation of good folk and fairy tales with this review. That's something I can't ever see happening. No, this time I'm here to tell you of a regrettably little-known Korean horror film, Hansel and Gretel (헨젤과 그레텔). If you enjoy anything like the other surreal science... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: We Are What We Are

This is a day or two after Hallowe'en, but I don't recall ever thinking that we had to limit ourselves. Horror, the unknown, the supernatural, the all-too-natural... all of that happens year-round. Segregating horror to one month a year, or the eight dark hours of the day, sometimes makes it easier to deal with and... Continue Reading →

Byzantium–Just Another Vampire Movie?

For those of you out there that know me well, you know how much I love vampire stories. Yes, I'm one of those people that will probably read/watch something just because it has vampires in it. Do I think vampires are overdone, both in books and film/television? Hell yes. For every good vampire story out... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The World’s End

I finally managed to get around to seeing The World's End last week after coming home from my massive road trip of massiveness. The World's End is about Gary King, played wonderfully by Simon Pegg, who is perhaps more than a little broken and living in the past. In an attempt to top the best... Continue Reading →

Timecrimes

I'm going back to the list I published some time back of non-USAnian science fiction films for this article. One of the films on there that I'd heard of but never quite gotten around to seeing was the Spanish film Timecrimes. And there really was no excuse for it... I have a bit of a... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Fantastic Planet

On 13 August, I posted a list on our Facebook page from blastr.com about non-US Science Fiction movies. While there was instantly a debate about the list on our page and in the off-planet offices of WTF, and while I personally had a few problems with some of the entries (or lack thereof... hello Scanners?)...

Pacific Rim: A Non-spoilery Review

For different reasons (former anime obsession, love of Japanese horror/monster films, an admiration for Guillermo del Toro's stylistic choices as director) the movie I've most anticipated coming out this year is Pacific Rim. For those of you that aren't geeks/nerds, or that don't follow upcoming movies at all, Pacific Rim is about giant monsters coming... Continue Reading →

Unicornblues’ Five Fave Fantasy Flicks

Let me preface this by noting that this is my own personal list of favorites. I'm not trying to say these are the best movies out there, just that they're the ones I happen to enjoy the most. Everyone has different tastes and what one person finds interesting and entertaining, another person might think is... Continue Reading →
