AnarchyVision: Jason Gorber Talks Shark Week - JAWS And DEEP BLUE SEA

A minor diversion this week away from talk of turtles or tornadoes, in favour of talking about two of my favourite requisite caetusian creature features.Jaws needs little introduction, perhaps, but it's still well worth pointing out that this accidental masterpiece...

5 DAYS OF WAR Review

Renny Harlin still knows how to blow stuff up real good. He's always been less a popcorn filmmaker than a Cracker Jack entertainer, rarely content to leave a scene alone without adding unnecessary ingredients to sweeten and / or salt...
