Mortal (2020, Norway / USA / UK) Review

Mortal (2020, Norway / USA / UK) Review

A grubby and disheveled young man wanders through the Norwegian countryside. He’s clearly distressed and disoriented. He sticks to lonely places and avoids people, but everyone has to eat and eventually he ventures close to town. Trying again to escape into the woods, he is harassed by a gang of youths. The encounter is one he attempts to evade, but it ends up being far more disastrous for the bullies, than for him. In Mortal, director André Øvredal again delves into Scandinavian mythology as his did in Trollhunter.

“He’s been in the woods all this time?”

Limited Edition BATGIRL and THE FLY "Help Me!" T-Shirts from Local Boogeyman

She’s so authoritative. So confident! The more you work with Batgirl, the more amazing she seems. How does she do it? Local Boogeyman disintegrated perfectly, but never reappeared. Where’s he gone? Into space… a stream of atoms… It’d be funny if life weren’t so sacred.

“Help me!”

Dragonheart Vengeance (2020, USA) Review

Dragonheart Vengeance (2020, USA) Review

The latest Dragonheart was only released this year, but continuity wise it takes place between Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse and Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire. This is a standalone film however, and the only mention to a previous film in the series occurs during the opening minutes, when it explained that this story focuses on one of dragons born from the dragon eggs in Dragonheart 3.

Dragonheart Vengeance is a film of Dragonheart firsts in many regards, and I wonder if this will be a new direction for the franchise.

“I’m out to avenge the death of my mother and father.”

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire (2017, USA) Review

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire (2017, USA)

Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire is a sequel to the third film, Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse, but you don’t need to see the earlier film to understand the plot. Battle for the Heartfire begins during the last moments of King Gareth, the once young knight from Dragonheart 3 (now played by Valeriu Bazu), and focuses on potential rival rulers. The dragon in this story is still Drago from the previous film, but he is now voiced by Patrick Stewart; whose voice is on par with Sean Connery as Draco from the original Dragonheart.

“Boy king! You ready for a man’s death?”

Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse (2015, USA) Review

Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse (2015, USA) Review

Dragonheart: A New Beginning was released in 2000 and for 15 years it was the last Dragonheart. Probably because it didn’t do as well as the original – it no longer had Sean Connery as the voice of the dragon, Draco – and the story elements were too similar. Another possibility for the long delay is because storywise Dragonheart: A New Beginning was about the very last dragon, so it left little room for a sequel. However, there have now been three direct to DVD/streaming prequels produced for the Dragonheart series in the last five years. Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse is a prequel to the original film.

“Gone are the days when good men ruled.”

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Dual Format Blu-ray/DVD Review

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Blu-ray Review

It was very on trend in the 1950s for movies concerning blob-like creatures, with a taste for human flesh. There was The Blob, obvs, The Quatermass Xperiment, X the Unknown, and a whole slew of others, all squelching around, trying to cause as much chaos as inhumanly possible. Spotting the trend, director Riccardo Freda jumped on the amorphous bandwagon, with his sci-fi horror Caltiki, the Immortal Monster.

“Crawling, crushing colossus of terror!”
