DVD Savant’s Guide to the New Wave of Classic Hammer Blu-rays

Curious about all those Region B Hammer Blu-rays from overseas, the ones requiring a region-free player? As a public service, Savant has solicited an expert opinion (you'll have to take my word for that) of a film restoration/transfer specialist who is also an informed fan of the filmic output of the little horror studio at Bray. I know, real Hammer fans buy first and worry about quality later, but this little guide might be of help to the rest of us budget-conscious collectors.

A 'Guest' article Written by a trusted Savant correspondent.

(Note: I receive plenty of emails asking for advice about the quality of Region B Blu-rays, most of which I don't see. I have access to industry people qualified to compare and judge the discs, but they stay off the record, because their employers forbid them to go online with their opinions. They must sometimes simmer in

Once Upon A Time season 3 episode 1 review: The Heart Of The Truest Believer

Review Kylie Peters 30 Sep 2013 - 07:12

The magic and pixie dust is back on Sunday night TV. Kylie welcomes the return of Once Upon A Time...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 The Heart of the Truest Believer

Once Upon a Time sails through the portal to Never Land and into its third season with all the intensity of Emma on a Momma Bear streak. Thrilling pacing and a fabulous collection of witty one-liners make up for chunks of cheesy sentimentality and a bit of drama-mongering in an overall satisfying opening that buzzes with momentum.

To be fair, it may just take some time to get reacquainted with Once’s Disney-fied approach to storytelling. It’s certainly a departure from Breaking Bad, Dexter, and other not-so-positive shows that have occupied geeks’ televisions since the end of Once’s last season. We just aren’t used to watching something where lines like “If you believe,

Once Upon A Time season 2 finale review: And Straight On Till Morning

Review Kylie Peters 13 May 2013 - 06:45

Once Upon A Time ends an uneven season with a cracker of a finale. Here's Emma's review of And Straight On Till Morning...

This review contains spoilers.

2.22 And Straight On Till Morning

Take a few minutes to meditate after the season two finale of Once Upon a Time - your blood pressure’s probably up. The show is firing on all cylinders, rocketing between plots and characters fueled by raw, devastating emotion. The frantic yet strangely balanced combination of action and drama makes this finale a heck of a ride. Despite too many characters and some too-convenient plot points, And Straight On Till Morning is a thoroughly entertaining watch that makes viewers regret the end of even a season as uneven as this one has been.

It’s astounding that so many characters with such deep-seated issues could all get their few minutes in

Once Upon A Time, Ep. 2.22, “And Straight on Till Morning” – A suspenseful conclusion to a magical season

Once Upon A Time, Season 2, Episode 22: “And Straight on Till Morning

Written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz

Directed by Dean White

Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on ABC

Once Upon a Time has closed its pages on the saga of Season Two and just like the writers planned, the season ends with a bang. Every single element you could possible need is present in the ending.

The destruction of Storybrooke by Greg and Tamara is the main focus of the episode. Everyone is on top of their scenes tonight; we find ourselves being pulled into the television set and rooting for everyone. Even the most unlikely of heroes steps up and fights to help in their own way, including Regina, Rumplestiltskin, and Hook.

The episode jumps right in with action and suspense within the first few seconds- the writers waste no time pulling us in as quickly as they can get us.

Once Upon A Time season 2 episode 21 review: Second Star To The Right

Review Kylie Peters 6 May 2013 - 08:15

Kylie doubts whether next week's finale will be able to tie together season two's many loose ends...

This review contains spoilers.

2.21 Second Star to the Right

There’s little time for sentiment in this week’s action-heavy episode, and that’s perhaps a good thing after last week’s sluggish-feeling fest. Still, there’s something lacking in a Once episode that prioritizes plot movement over its characters’ internal struggles. The notable exception, involving Emma, Neal, and a sucking green portal of doom, injects a little much-needed personal drama into the episode, but it’s a bit too forced to really do the trick. Last week’s episode built an emotional foundation for the finale, and this week does the same from a plot standpoint, rushing to set-up a conclusion-worthy climax. It’s a mediocre offering, interesting to watch once but not much worth rewatching,

Michael Raymond-James Talks Once Upon A Time, How He Approaches a Fantastical Character, and Favorite Moments of the Season

With the final two episodes of Season 2 entitled “Second Star to the Right” and “And Straight on Till Morning,” it’s clear that the ABC fantasy series Once Upon A Time will be exploring the world of Neverland. While Emma (Jennifer Morrison) believes that Neal’s (Michael Raymond-James) fiancée Tamara (Sonequa Martin-Green) had something to do with Regina's (Lana Parrilla) disappearance, a young Bae (Dylan Schmid) finds himself in Old London and is taken in by the Darling family when he befriends their daughter, Wendy (Freya Tingley). During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Michael Raymond-James (True Blood, Terriers) talked about how Neal/Baelfire will have to address his unfinished business with both Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and his father (Robert Carlyle), just how much he knew about his character when he signed on to play him, how he approaches such a fantastical character, and his favorite moments this season.

Lord Voldemort vs. Mary Poppins

Lord Voldemort vs. Mary Poppins
Dreams really do come true at the Olympics. (And no, we're not just talking about you, Michael Phelps.)

Director Danny Boyle's Olympic Opening Ceremony has officially cemented itself as one of the most memorable in the sporting event's history thanks to one particularly dazzling duel between Lord Voldemort and Mary Poppins.

A fight between the magical nanny and the Harry Potter villain may sound like a scene out of an over-imaginative 12-year-old's dream, but the scenario was made real on Boyle's "Isles of Wonder" -- of course, that too, was a part of a dream. The magical skit was part of a broader section of the ceremonies, entitled "Second to the Right, and Straight On Till Morning" -- the famous directions to Neverland, as given to Wendy by Peter Pan. The bit highlighted children's literature and featured a few terrifying villains, from Lord Voldemort to the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The Daredevil Movie That Almost Happened

Here's how the whole thing shook out, straight from DeMatteis: There’s a long version and a short version of this story and I’ll opt for the short one: In the mid-nineties I was working on a screenplay for producer/screenwriter Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone ): an original I’d pitched, and sold, to his company, 1492 Pictures, called Straight On Till Morning. Around the same time I met—and became instant best friends with—a wonderful director named Carlo Carlei (Romeo and Juliet). Well, it turned out that Carlo was also working with Chris and his partners—helping them to develop Marvel Comics’ blind superhero, Daredevil, into a feature film. The movie had been through a number of drafts and the creative team was looking for a new take. Short story even shorter: Carlo wanted me involved and, since I was already working for 1492, Chris
