By now, you’ve probably noticed these are coming through a week or two later than usual, as headlines themselves may suggest.

So it happens that all of a sudden, you’re seeing February reviews at the start of March, March ones at the start of April…hey.  Life gets in the way, and for someone who’s ostensibly out of the corporate workforce of late, it’s been at least twice as busy – working on the reboot of a certain podcast only being a small part thereof.

But even more than that, there’s been a welcome increase in folks coming to us, offering up their rosters for our delectation and dissection…or if you prefer, to the vagaries of critical review, in our patented honest, straightforward, incisive and idiosyncratic manner.

Like I always tell my wife, love us or hate us, you sure as hell ain’t gonna find nobody else like us.  Selah.

A collection of ongoing, shorter form coverage of largely comic book related film reviews (and one classic UK television episode review as a bonus), these all originally appeared on the Third Eye Cinema Facebook page, mostly over the past few months (but with one dating all the way back to 2014…)

For more, check out our review of The Wolverine, from back in 2013…or our lengthy chat over at Weird Scenes on superhero television (and TV movies) from the 70’s to today.

Enjoy!

If this last few weeks has taught me anything, it’s simply to reaffirm a long held apprehension that the sentiments of Sartre were dead on: “hell is other people.”

Enough Nominally Normative Nostalgic Nonsense, it’s time for the Nascent Nonchalance of the New Year’s Roundup!

Well, one year on and the tide would seem to finally be turning.  The wheels of progress move too damn slowly, sometimes, but at least they’re back trying to move after far too many months in utter stasis (if not a horrifying, Lovecraftian regress).

“More down to earth, and in a way more Finnish: straight talk from no-bullshit men.”

One of the more interesting and appreciated items I’ve been asked to review is a recent release from Svart Records’ publishing arm, namely a book focused specifically on the history of Finnish black metal.

Blu Review: Vinegar Syndrome’s A Woman’s Torment (Roberta Findlay)

Tags

, , , , , ,

Making use of picturesque (but conveniently local!) Fire Island locations,
Roberta Findlay delivers a typically unerotic…but worse, strangely depressing anomaly of adult cinema by the appropriately maudlin title of A
Woman’s Torment (which she quips in the extras “is the story of my life!”)

When we spoke with Pop Cinema/Film Media/Camp Motion Picture/Retro-Seduction/Retro Shock-O-Rama impresario Michael Raso at the very dawn of the Third Eye Cinema podcast in early 2012 (or technically, the Winter of the year prior, when we actually met and recorded) and again just this past summer, one of the subjects covered (and also during our short lived “Behind the Lens” segment on Raso’s own Alternative Cinema Podcast) was our mutual love of the films of Doris Wishman.
