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.

Limited Edition THE REAL BRUCE LEE and THE FLY T-Shirts from Local Boogeyman

Local Boogeyman positively guarantees The Real Bruce Lee! He also believes in the sacredness of life. He wouldn’t harm anything… not even a fly. But what if it was a fly with the head of a man?! Or the man with the head of The Fly?!

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.

Saint Maud (2019, UK) Review

Saint Maud (2019, UK) Review

Producer Jason Blum was quoted as saying, “There are not a lot of female directors period, and even less who are inclined to do horror”. It wasn’t long before Blum had to backtrack on his statement when it was pointed out to him how many female directors there were in horror, all of which were eligible to create imaginative horror features. Recently added to that group is Rose Glass, who has set her first feature, Saint Maud, in the traditionally male-dominated horror genre and was named the winner of the IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary Award.

Day of the Stranger (2019, UK) Review

Day of the Stranger (2019, UK) Review

I’m going to be honest here; I don’t really know what happened in this movie. I mean I think I do, but I’m not entirely sure. So, apologies in advance to the filmmakers who obviously put so much work into this psychedelic (often referred to as “acid” or what I’ve dubbed “twistern”) western filmed primarily in Wales. A bounty hunter is hired to collect a…demon gunslinger? Story points are integrated into the plot just as they are in most movies, other than the great Godfrey Reggio’s experimental eye candy, sure. But do they add to the proceedings or just further confuse the world that’s been created?
