Meek’s Cutoff (Kelly Reichardt, 2010). On its own terms, the film is a beauty – and it will be interesting to see what happens when unsuspecting audiences settle in for a western yarn. (full review 5/6)
Journey to the Seventh Planet (Sid Pink, 1961). Not sure how I got this far without seeing this item, but wow. The destination is Uranus, which could lead less evolved film watchers to complete some lines of dialogue – okay, every line of dialogue – with the phrase “on Uranus” or “at Uranus” or another juvenile variation. Not that I would know. John Agar stars; the scenario seems to echo an old Ray Bradbury story, and possibly even shades of Solaris, except everything is incompetent.
