December is the time for end of the year retrospectives, so here is a look at Balladeer’s Blog’s Best of January 2021.
MYSTERIOUS PLANET (1982) – My review of this forgotten science fiction bomb which vaguely parallels the Jules Verne novel Mysterious Island. This unintentionally hilarious flick is one of the worst movies ever made. Click HERE.
SIXTEEN FAILED PREDICTIONS FROM 1975 – Four provinces seceding from Canada to join the United States? Indonesia trying to conquer Australia? A military junta in France? All this and more with a look at predictions which were WAY off. Click HERE.
THE GODFATHER CODA (2020 Edit) – My review of Francis Ford Coppola’s December 2020 re-edit of Godfather III. I look at the reshuffling of scenes, the omission of some and different takes for others. Click HERE.
DYSTOPIA NATION: TECHNO TYRANTS – A fanciful tale of Big Tech tyranny which has in many ways come true. Click HERE.
ANNE SPIELBERG – Steven’s sister was involved with some very bad science fiction flops in 1980 and 1981. My reviews of them are HERE.
BEST OF BIDEN GOOFS AND GAFFES – The hilarious mock commercial for a collection of Joe Biden’s blithering idiocy. Click HERE.
NICK CARTER IN PRAGUE (1978) – My review of the tongue-in-cheek Czech film about Nick Carter, the American Dime Novel and Pulp hero of long ago. This movie is part arthouse flick, part Warren Beatty’s Dick Tracy. Click HERE.
