  4. Kerry Conran's ambitious tribute to classic fantasy adventure films was not a box office success. It was one of the first films to use extensive CG sets to create a retro-future New York. The movie looks like an RKO film from 1939. The story is pure adventure serial with Sky Captain ( Jude Law) and Polly ( Gywneth Paltrow) running against time to save the world from a mad genius who wants to destroy the world. There are plenty of visual references to everything from Flash Gordon to King Kong.

    "The Super " (2018) Patrick John Flueger gets a job as one of the caretakers of an apartment building were some of the tenants are disappearing. This starts off a psychological thriller and then becomes a ghost story until it goes bunkers. Val Kilmer plays a strange old man who dabbles in witchcraft and may be responsible for the rising body count. A few effective shocks- you can rent it over at Amazon

    Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

    I agree they could just have cut that pointless Meryl Streep number

    Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

    They really should have called this Mary Poppins the Clone- an attempt to recreate classic movie magic is not as easy at it seems. Blunt is good but not Julie Andrews . Lin Manuel Miranda might be a Broadway star but he looks dull on screen. They could not write one decent song. The costumes and animation scene are well done. But the sequence of Meryl Streep is so pointless they could have cut the entire thing.

    "Velvet Buzzaw" (2019)written and directed by Dan Gilroy is a stylish horror film set in the contemporary art world . The movie plays like feature length episode of "Tales from the Crypt" in which greedy schemers get what they deserve from a set of cursed paintings . You can see it on Netflix

    Classic Films with a Gay Twist

    A while back someone ( whose true identity must remain a secret) started a board riot when he dared suggest that Marty could not find a girlfriend to get married because perhaps he was actually gay ?! ( oh no!!! gasp !!the horror!!) so what other classic movies could work if the main characters were re-written as gay...?

    Les Diaboliques (1955)

    It's a classic thriller- with a truly terrifying ending. There was a good made for television remake called "Reflections of Murder" (1974) starring Tuesday Weld, Joanna Hacket and Sam Waterson. Directed by John Badham

    The Medusa Touch (1978)

    Richard Burton ( who must have really needed the money) plays John Molar a middle age psychic with "a talent for disaster". His head is smashed in the opening scene but he manages to survive. Brunel (Lino Ventura) a French detective seeks Molar's killer with the help of psychiatrist Lee Remick. Brunel enters flashback land were he meets among other people a young Derek Jacobi. There is a lot of running around but very little suspense . The climax takes place in a cathedral which Molar threatened to destroy even though it's quite obviously already falling apart- so of course the decide to host a mass and invite the queen. This boring movie fails as both horror and disaster film.

    The Medusa Touch (1978)

    The problem I have with the movie is the script- it's obvious Molar can wish people to death- but his transformation from unwilling killer to psycho mass murder is not convincing. Burton should have played the detective and they should have gotten Anthony Perkins for the lead. Lee Remick looks pretty is wasted- in the book her character was a man. The church climax is well staged and some of the miniature work is effective- but why did Molar want to kill the Queen? This is another problem I have with the story- is Molar just evil or crazy and what drive him to use his powers for disaster? There is something missing- the director also doesn't have a talent for staging death scenes- the killings are pretty dull.
