Virus X

Not-terrible disease film is not memorable, either


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Not to say that Stephen King’s “The Stand” won’t one day make the leap from fiction to fact, but I recall with some amusement the public’s total freak-out in 2009 over H1N1, convinced it was the end of the world as we know it.

Battle Beyond the Stars

More fun than 'Star Wars,' at a fraction of the budget


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Roger Corman threw his might behind two "Star Wars" rip-offs, the Italian pickup "Star Crash" and his own, $2-million production shot on a lumberyard, "Battle Beyond the Stars," now making its Blu-ray debut in a 30th-anniversary edition.

The Venetian Affair

This spy thriller has not the finest aim.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Promises the cover of 1968’s “The Venetian Affair” from Warner Archive, “Murder! Spies! Women!” They left off “Disappointment!” Released in conjunction with a multi-disc set of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” feature films, the film stars Napoleon Solo himself, Robert Vaughn, but as ex-spy Bill Fenner, and with the espionage exploits as straight and bleak as “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.”
