Dinosaurs Korean Style In "Speckles The Tarbosaurus 2"

Image
Here is a great looking family film from South Korea that is very much in the style of the "Land Before Time" movie series. Synopsis: After the great disaster of the Cretaceous Period 80 million years ago, a Tarbosaurus named Speckles lost all of his family but his youngest son. Unlike his father, Mak-ne is scared and timid and is always being picked on by other dinosaurs. One day, Mak-ne is abducted by 3 Deinonychuses and Speckles embarks on an adventure to start looking for him. On his way, he meets Songgot who is looking for his daughter and a friendly herbivor named Sai. Together, they continue their journey until Speckles finds clues about the whereabouts of his son Mak-ne. However, a mutant dinosaur appears in front of them. Will Speckles be able to save his son?

The George Eastman Museum Has Restored "The Legend of Boggy Creek" And It's Coming To Blu-ray

From Newsweek Hide your dog! Hide your pigs! The Fouke Monster is returning to theaters! 1972 Bigfoot horror movie The Legend of Boggy Creek is getting a 4K restoration, thanks to the efforts of director Charles B. Pierce’s daughter, Pamula Pierce Barcelou, who now holds the rights to the movie. The restoration, overseen by the George Eastman Museum, will return the movie to its original Techniscope glory after years of bad prints and cheapo DVDs. Barcelou posted a preview video (thanks Bloody Disgusting!) that shows just how great the restoration looks. If you’ve seen Boggy Creek before, it’s probably obvious just how massive an improvement this is over past releases of the movie. What’s not to love about that voiceover and the twangy, folk soundtrack? Even without the monster, Boggy Creek is a treat. The preview gives a good sense of the strange alchemy at play in the movie, with its combo of nature footage, personal accounts and recreated encounters worthy of Roger Patt

Doctor Who: It Takes You Away

By Tim Knight ( Heropress ) I was so excited by the possibilities when Jodie Whittaker was revealed as the Thirteenth Doctor and have really, really tried to embrace this new season, but it's simply not working for me. Although It Takes You Away had some quirky ideas in it (particularly the whole Star Trek-like concept of a sentient parallel universe), this tale from former Skins writer Ed Hime took a shotgun approach to eccentricity, throwing in oddities just because he could. The TARDIS delivers The Doctor and friends to contemporary Norway (Why? Because they could. It had zero bearing on the ensuing story) where they investigate an isolated, barricaded cottage that's home to a young blind girl, Hanne (Ellie Wallwork), who believes her father, Erik (Christian Rubeck) has been taken by a monstrous "thing" in the woods. Of course, matters aren't that straight forward, and The Doctor soon discovers a portal in the house to an a strange non-space between

Godzilla King of the Monsters - Monster Designs Revealed!

From EW Director Michael Dougherty has teased the designs of the outsized beasts featured in his upcoming film Godzilla: King of the Monsters (out May 31) by posting images of the movie’s tie-in toys on Twitter. “Playing with my old Godzilla Shogun Warrior and the family camcorder is how I got started,” Dougherty wrote in an accompanying note. “Here’s hoping these SH MonsterArts figures will inspire some kid out there to do the same.” Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set around five years after the events depicted in 2014’s Godzilla. “The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” Dougherty told EW earlier this year. “Godzilla hasn’t been seen since that destructive finale, “but there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.” In the film, Godzilla is joined by the three-headed King Ghidorah, the giant
