6 ‘n 90! Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.
Conan the Barbarian. Keep the first twenty minutes, call it Young Conan, and you’ve got a great short. Add an hour and a half of confused story and bad acting, and you’ve got the new Conan the Barbarian movie.
Fred Koenekamp. He’s faced the challenge of putting epic-size films on the screen like Patton and Papillon, and he’s been in the thick of the action on a roller rink in Kansas City Bomber, but maybe the greatest challenge he faced was a bunch of bees on The Swarm! Part 2 of Jim’s interview with cinematographer Fred Koenekamp.
The Debt. No, it’s not a movie about your student loan. Instead, this espionage thriller tells the story of three Mossad agents as they attempt to apprehend a Nazi war criminal. No word on whether their student loans were ever paid.
Attack the Block. What do you get when you combine great direction, smart screenwriting, terrific acting, and a budget that’s probably a bit larger than the craft service bill for Super 8? A surprisingly good film, that’s what. Remember, if you see only one kids v.s. aliens movie this year, make sure it’s Attack the Block.https://imrud.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/attack-use-mp3.mp3″
Thanks for listening! We’ll be back in two weeks.
