A gorgeously shot, excellent horror film

I'd urge any true cinemaniac to explore the filmography of Dario Argento, whether they like horror or not.

Giant Robot Action Pack

Giant, fighting robots. What, were you expecting something else?


Rod Lott
While neither film in the “Giant Robot Action Pack” is technically good, I’d rather watch either of them for 24 hours straight — wait, make that 48 — than sit through a single viewing of any of the “Transformers” franchise.

Hobo with a Shotgun

The feel-good homeless vigilante film of the year!


Rod Lott
“Hobo with a Shotgun” started as a joke — specifically, as the winner of a fake trailer contest to promote the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez collaboration “Grindhouse.” For some reason, it follows “Machete,” the first faux coming attraction in “Grindhouse,” to a full-fledged feature.

There’s something out there. Yawn.


Rod Lott
With a pulsing score that recalls the best of John Carpenter, the blue-tinted “Bio-Dead” begins promisingly enough, as a handful of guys in hazmat suits approaches yet another seemingly abandoned building to comb for survivors, post-chem disaster.
