Comes a Bright Day

All is not calm, all is not ‘Bright.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
London, jazz, neon-lit nights, a posh hotel, a heist, Imogen Poots: Comes a Bright Day has so many elements I love to see in the movies, yet they add up to such a minuscule amount of pleasure. It's like pouring your favorite bubbly beverage all the way to the top of a frosty glass, only to see that once the head has subsided, you're left with so little.

Mold!

Spread the word: a B movie that’s semi-infectious.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Ignore the grim, apocalyptic cover of this DVD, which depicts the flick’s vibe so inaccurately, it even drops the title’s exclamation point. Make no mistake: Mold! has mirth on its mind ... even if those brains have spilled onto the floor.

The Big Gundown

A spaghetti feast


Western

Rod Lott
Italian-made yet America-set, The Big Gundown is the second spaghetti Western in a row I've seen in which a man is silenced by having a soapy shaving brush shoved into his mouth. For the record, the first was the recently re-released My Name Is Nobody, a 1973 film as fine as this 1966 one.

The Last Days on Mars

Mars needs Lysol.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
With his good looks, Liev Schreiber (TV's Ray Donovan) seems born to play an astronaut. In Magnet Releasing's The Last Days on Mars, he finally gets the chance. As chief systems officer Vincent Campbell, he's part of Aurora's six-month mission on the red planet with only 19 hours left to go before heading home. What could go wrong?
