VIDEO: The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970)

In the latest chapter of the nefarious web-show-within-a-show Baker Street Adventures, Sofie… I mean, Sherlock Holmes, and Sursum… er, John Watson join forces (in person!) to review one of Steven Moffat’s favorite movies, and a big inspiration for BBC’s Sherlock. It’s the 1970 Billy Wilder comedy The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes!

VIDEO: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

After a three month absence, the Cinema Slob returns with an all-new installment of Superhero Month! And what better way to kick off a month of superhero movies than by taking a look at an origin story? Find out how everyone’s favorite adamantium-clawed mutant got his start in X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

VIDEO: Brijes 3D (2010)

Renegado returns to Mexican cinema with Brijes 3D (English title: Guardians of the Lost Code),  an animated feature where humans are bonded to animal spirits called “brijes” that give them magical powers. The film wasn’t really successful, which had nothing at all to do with it being a total Digimon rip-off.

VIDEO: Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)

David enters another dimension, not only of sight and sound but of mind, to review the 1983 anthology film Twilight Zone: The Movie, featuring four separate stories brought to life by four of the era’s most sought-after filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg and John Landis. He also briefly touches on the history of the classic TV series and its legendary creator, Rod Serling.

VIDEO: The Dark Backward (1991)

Phil looks at The Dark Backward, a pitch black comedy from 1991 where Judd Nelson plays a hopeless stand-up comic who becomes a sensation after he grows a third arm out of his back. Basically, it’s a cult film with no cult. But Phil is here to fix that!

VIDEO: Wimbledon (2004)

No, not the tournament, it’s Wimbledon, the tennis-based romantic comedy! You know, the one where a last-hope English dude (hooray, Paul Bettany!) wins Wimbledon and has sex with a hot American player? That one. And… hold on just a second. Does that random extra playing a ball boy look a bit… familiar to anyone else?

VIDEO: Indian Superman (1987)

The Agony Anarchists (Renegado, Mendo, Sofie, and newest member Full of Questions!) return to review a movie that they thought was Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, but instead turned out to be a shameless Bollywood ripoff of Richard Donner’s first Superman movie. They already survived the Filipino Batman and the Turkish Spider-Man, but can they get through this one? Watch and find out!

VIDEO: Traxx (1988)

In this very special episode, Obscurus Lupa joins Cecil to take a look at the bizarre 1988 action/black comedy Traxx, starring middle square on the bottom row Shadoe Stevens, and substitute Chrissy Snow substitute Priscilla Barnes.

VIDEO: The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

Phil Buni brings you Wes Anderson’s most underrated film, The Royal Tenenbaums, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, and Luke Wilson as former child prodigies whose lives have all gone horribly wrong thanks to their father (Gene Hackman), who suddenly reappears in their lives, claiming he has weeks to live.

VIDEO: Nanny McPhee (2005)

In this installment of Movie Recommendations, Sofie talks about a genre that’s near and dear to her heart: Children’s movies! And she reviews what she feels is the perfect example of a brilliant entry in the genre, Nanny McPhee.
