FILM REVIEW: TO THE FOURTH POWER (2013)

To the 4th PowerTO THE FOURTH POWER (2013) – This film was one of the sleeper hits of last year. You’d think it would be impossible to do something creative with the mock documentary format at this point but To The Fourth Power proves to be a thought-provoking and inventive piece set “just a few years from now”.

MOVIE REVIEW: THE WORLD’S A STAGE (2014)

Would ALEC BALDWIN find the plot of this movie a little too close to reality?

Would ALEC BALDWIN find the plot of this movie a little too close to reality?

The World’s A Stage (2014 – Glitternight productions) – This independent film, though set here in the 21st Century, is reminiscent of ancient Greek political satires like the ones penned by Aristophanes, Eupolis and Cratinus as well as the parathespian comedies of Strattis. A traveling troupe of actors visit an unnamed town and are a huge hit in a play dramatizing the heroics of a group of honest politicians. The citizens are bowled over by their performances and elect the men and women of the theatre troupe to actually govern their town.

Naturally the shallow and vain thespians are in way over their heads when it comes to dealing with real-world responsibilities and problems. Their egotistical need for applause and approval also makes them unfit for office, especially when it comes to Continue reading

MOVIE REVIEW: THE BADLANDS BEAUTY (2014)

THE BADLANDS BEAUTY (2014)

THE BADLANDS BEAUTY (2014)

The Badlands Beauty (2014- Glitternight Productions) is an explosive action film starring the supermodel known as M*E*T*A*L. Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog will remember M*E*T*A*L as the beautiful woman who poses as Edward Wozniak’s Neo-Pulp superheroine the Matriarch.

M*E*T*A*L is moving into acting in what may be the most memorable movie debut since Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours. Our gorgeous heroine is an outlaw biker babe who can out-drink, out-shoot, out-fight and out-ride all of the male bikers in her dangerous circles. While M*E*T*A*L – called Nomad in the film – is partying hard at a dive in an unnamed town in northern Mexico she Continue reading

Last night’s episode of 21st Century Golem, the hottest new cable series since The Walking Dead, was the first part of the two-part finale for this inaugural season.

THE GOLEM: IN TONIGHT’S EPISODE IT’S SCIENCE VS THE SUPERNATURAL

The fourth episode of the hot new cable television series 21st Century Golem premieres tonight. To nobody’s surprise the series is once again embroiled in a controversy over a throwaway element that manages to overshadow the actual storyline.

If you’ve been following this excellent but ultra-violent program you know that it features a clay monster called the Golem who is protecting modern-day Israelis – especially children – from the Hamas terrorists who revel in nonstop killing. Barack Obama has a recurring role as the comic-relief villain who distorts reality as much as he has to in order to side with the Hamas butchers and blame all the violence on the Golem. Little Barry is therefore a combination of J. Jonah Jameson from Spider-Man stories and General “Thunderbolt” Ross from Hulk stories.

In the pre-credits teaser the Golem rescues a few dozen hostages from the Muslim terrorists who have captured them. With the hostages freed and the terrorists all reduced to bloody bits by the rampaging monster Barack Obama is horrified and once again condemns Israel for the whole situation.

After the way he’s been humiliated in front of the entire world over and over again because of his ineptitude and dishonesty Obama is determined to assert himself in the Middle East. Under Continue reading

THE GOLEM BATTLES THE REANIMATED CORPSE OF YASSER ARAFAT

Tonight’s third episode of the new cable television series 21st Century Golem finds the clay monster from Jewish folklore battling a zombified Yasser Arafat, the most famous Palestinian terrorist of them all.

The reason given for Arafat’s reanimation? Hamas’ storage of chemical weapons underneath Arafat’s burial place. The episode depicts the chemicals leaking into Yasser’s corpse and causing his body to rise from the grave to do what the madman loves best – kill innocent Israeli civilians. If only the makers of 21st Century Golem had waited they would have gotten some scripting help from this week’s revelation that Arafat’s corpse supposedly showed signs of poison. If they had known that would happen they could have thrown in a reference to the alleged poison mingling with the other chemicals to give us this zombie terrorist.

At any rate the Arafat zombie thrills the Hamas butchers, who feel they now have a supernatural ally of their own to use against the Golem who has been thwarting their murderous plans. After a Continue reading

CONTROVERSY OVER LAST NIGHT’S HALLOWEEN EPISODE OF 21ST CENTURY GOLEM

A Golem as depicted in the 1920’s silent film

Last week’s premier episode of the new cable horror series 21st Century Golem sparked a fair amount of controversy with its depiction of a Golem wiping out Hamas terrorists who were targeting Israeli children. The show’s way of using Barack Obama as a comic-relief villain blaming the Golem for the violence and siding with the Hamas butchers prompted some outcry as well, mostly from Little Barry’s mindless and unquestioning supporters. But since those people still think Obamacare was a good idea it’s impossible to take them seriously. I applaud the show for having the courage to feature an American president in a villainous light. 

Last night’s episode of 21st Century Golem upped the ante and has caused a hundred times the uproar of that debut broadcast. The first act of the episode, titled Halloween for Hamas, featured the heroic Golem thwarting a Hamas plot to blow up a hospital full of Jews and Christians amid some incredibly violent scenes. Some have Continue reading

The first episode of the hot new cable series Twenty-First Century Golem premiered last night. For the uninitiated the Golem is a clay monster from Jewish folklore created by a Rabbi to protect the Jewish people from their oppressors. Most Golem stories are set hundreds of years ago but this new show, from the director of the hit action movie The Burqa, is set here in the year 2013.

This Golem is created in Israel to protect Israeli civilians from mad dog Hamas terrorists. The Hamas butchers are targeting Israeli children and gleefully whooping as their fragile young bodies are blown to bloody pieces. The Golem wades into their Continue reading

MOVIE REVIEW: THE BURQA (2013)

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women's rights.

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women’s rights.

THE BURQA (2013) – The Burqa deserves to be THE action film of the year. This movie has a daring premise, incredible stuntwork plus more killings and blood squibs than any three Quentin Tarantino movies put together. There’s also an unforgettable performance by the lead actress, whose name is being kept a secret over fears of violent reprisals from Islamist terrorist groups.

The film is set in modern-day Iraq. Our heroine,  known only as “The Burqa”, emerges from the desert sands, clad in the outfit she is named for and with automatic weapons strapped to each of her sashaying thighs. Like Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name and John Garko’s Holy Ghost, both from Spaghetti Westerns, the Burqa is an unstoppable gunslinger who litters the land with her fallen foemen.

The audience first meets the title figure when she saves a teenage Muslim girl from being raped and killed by Islamist fanatics for daring to dress in western clothing and to advocate abortion rights. Countless Continue reading
