Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Jason Statham’s latest, Guy Ritchie’s “Wrath Of Man.” The movie is an interesting stylistic change of pace for Ritchie, who usually infuses his films with a manic intensity and gobs of humor from his scripts. There is a style to his films that is often imitated by others, but this time Ritchie tones it down a bit with a style more reminiscent of cinematic auteurs like Michael Mann or Christopher Nolan. The result is a sleek, entertaining thriller that is pared down to its basic elements with Statham providing a reliable, if somewhat grim presence.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a little something new. In case you missed my appearance on “The Pat Walsh Show” last Friday night, we’re playing it right here. I mean, why would you want to listen to Pat for two hours before getting to the really good stuff, heh? On this night, will be talking cinematic adaptations of books and also some reviews of “Without Remorse” and “The Mitchells Vs. The Machines.” If this works out you’ll be getting this little feature every week. Feel free to comment either here or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. In honor of the vigilante thriller “Without Remorse” releasing on Amazon Prime, I thought I’d give you a taste of one of the most popular vigilantes in old radio. “The Green Hornet” was one of the more popular series on the radio, premiering on 1936 and created by the same guy who brought the Lone Ranger to radio, George W. Trendle. In fact, Britt Reid, the crusading publisher who was actually the Green Hornet, is a distant relation to the Lone Ranger. Pretty cool, huh. In any event, the show is a lot of fun and not as adult oriented as other shows like The Shadow. I have two episodes here for your listening pleasure. Listen to the distinctive theme, which is “The Flight Of The Bumblebee” mixed with the sound of buzzing hornets. Enjoy and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest Tom Clancy adaptation. Despite the fact that the new Amazon Studios film deviates almost completely from the source material, “Without Remorse” is a swift moving action flick that benefits from a committed performance from star Michael B. Jordan.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It,” the first in the series not directed by horror master James Wan. Even so, I’m willing to give it a go as the first two films have earned enough goodwill from yours truly not to dismiss it out of hand. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return as paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren. Will this case be their last, mwahhahah? Take a look at the trailer below and feel free to comment either here or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
