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 →

New (to Me) Blog: The Days and Nights of kashmirgirl1976

I discovered this blog this evening, after she discovered us. She has a nice write-up this month of horror movies, and I recommend checking it out. Though I'm not sure I can trust her... she says that there might be "an adequate amount" of Sherlock/Benedict Cumberbatch on her page, and frankly, I don't know if... Continue Reading →

Steampunk and The City of Lost Children

I've mentioned before that La Cité des Enfants Perdus is one of my favorite fantasy films.  La Cité des Enfants Perdus is a French film directed by Caro and Jeunet. And if you've never seen a Caro and Jeunet film (or just a Jeunet film for that matter), I highly recommend you hunt one down... Continue Reading →

WtF a Fantasy Podcast #10 – Heroic Fantasy

Wednesday night we discussed heroic fantasy and why it is a different subgenre than sword and sorcery. Druss the Legend, Pug and Riftwar,  and Neo's reluctant entrance into The Matrix were all part of our chat. As well as The Vision of Escaflowne, our Anime selection of the week. The origins of heroic fantasy in... 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?)...
