    Ebirah, Horror of the Deep

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What is the best movie to be featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000? Doubtless all the films riffed have more defenders now than they did back in the ‘90s, and I’m sure there are those who would sincerely say Manos: The Hands of Fate. The people on the show have always spoken fondly of the Russo-Finnish epics they did. Well, I’m no liberal commie Ruskie lover like Mike Nelson. I have no hesitation in declaring it Godzilla vs. The Sea…

    Old San Francisco

    Silent Film holds many joys and wonders for the curious cinephile.

    If you want to see the marvelous technical heights they could reach, a smorgasbord of visual delights that still stun today, then I can’t recommend Metropolis enough. 

    If you want a poetic ode to the human spirit, something to rekindle your belief in the power of love, then promptly seek out Sunrise: A Tale of Two Humans.

    But if you just want to see Angelo Rossitto in yellowface then you should certainty check out Old San Francisco.

    FRENCH CRITIC: Yes, Hollywood runs around like headless chickens, throwing everything they can into audiences’ faces, “you loved this before, you will love it again, no?”
    LUC BESSON: Exactly. We French invented the motion picture, and it is we who shall shepherd it through this dark time. My new film breaks new ground, offering something never seen before. It is about this woman. She’s…

    ★★★★★

    I would be remiss if I let Women’s History Month pass without talking about my favorite movie directed by a woman, Tamra Davies’ Billy Madison. Now you might assume I’m making some sexist joke, claiming my fav female directed film be a critically reviled crude comedy, but I am being completely serious. Billy Madison is a masterpiece, a comedy far above anything by Chaplin or Tati.

    One thing I don’t think many people understand is that this is a parody…
