I'm taking a note from Schwartz and going to post my links from my reviews in here. I'm hoping feedback good or bad can be directed here so that I can improve on something I enjoy doing.
My pleasure. You do good work and I want to see you succeed.
Agreed. It always struck as kind of odd that the strongest component (Barker himself) was also the weakest. Without him the story would have suffered in the transition from book to film, but with him directing his limitations are quickly reached.
It looks like Cronenberg was 100% on board with the film, considering his performance as the bad guy. It's too bad that Barker didn't have him direct the film as well. If nothing else, Cronenberg would have probably been able to get better performances from the actors involved.
I think I am going to be slowing down much more on the DVD reviews. We get so many that have very little on the redeeming qualities, and have gotten so many new reviewers that I think after my latest batch is up I will be doing it a lot less. We get close to 20 DVDs a month, and only about 3 or 4 of them are interesting. I think those that aren't in other columns should get them to keep them interested . If we lose more writers though I will be back.
