The Lang that time forgot

Advantages: Great, fast moving, surprisingly modern
Disadvantages: Obviously a bit dated

A review of the Eureka DVD, only £6.50 on amazon at the moment. Made in 1932/33, this was German director Fritz Lang’s second sound film, and the last film he made in Germany until 1961 (he fled to Hollywood when Hitler came to power). Lang is probably b ...

Disadvantages: Somewhat hollow, inconsequential, outrageous

Following my review of the prequel to this last week, I give you now the second installment of the increasingly far-fetched premise that is Stefan Ruzowitzky's "Anatomie 2". Picking up where we left off, the Anti-Hippocratic Lodge is at large again, th ...

Breathtaking and quite disturbing!

Advantages: It wakes up something primal inside!
Disadvantages: Too realistic (watch it and you'll see what I mean!)

Hello Big Brother!

Advantages: original, makes you think
Disadvantages: very violent (i don't mind myself)

BACKGROUND ******************** I heard about this movie a couple of months ago. As my girlfriend is German, she heard about this movie, and she told me that it was meant to be very good. As I wasn't a fan of "Run Lola Run", I wasn't expecting much, and ...
