In 2007, acclaimed cult directors Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) and Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi) teamed up and released a double feature called Grindhouse, which boasted one movie by each director and several fake trailers for nonexistent movies from Rodriguez, Eli Roth (Hostel), Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), and Rob […]

Straw Dogs (2011)

(This review was originally published on September 16, 2011 at The Rogers Revue) A Straw Dog – highly regarded, but when no longer need, discarded. In 1971, Sam Peckinpah’s psychological thriller “Straw Dogs” created a ripple in a generation of filmgoers  with  its  unprecedented depiction  of  human brutality. Censors struggled with an appropriate rating in England […]
