* MOVIE NEWS *
Heard good things about this low-budget movie, and I wasn't disappointed! Very well done, very suspenseful, and believable. Well, almost! It does have a sci-fi twist to it! There's about ten seconds of "hokeyness" in the last minute of the film (the low budget shows there and it didn't add to the film) but it was really good.
Give it a B.
CHASSEURS DE DRAGONS (DRAGON HUNTERS)
We'd never heard of this movie, but it was highly recommended on NetFlix, so took a chance - and wow! A computer-animated fantasy from France/Germany, this one is so stunningly gorgeous. The story is simple - a group of underdogs set off to kill the giant dragon at the ends of the world - but everything about this story is so refreshingly original and imaginative. The artwork is just incredible and it's a shame this movie never received a wide release. It is a work of art! Check out the movie trailer at IMDB
