New Column News - Plus 3 Words That Should Never Be In The Same Sentence

The Scribe is very pleased to be taking over the weekly DVD column over at CinefantastiqueOnline today. We’ll be going over each week’s major new releases in a format we hope to be both breezy and pithy – in other words, shorter and more concise than the undisciplined tone poems that you’ve come to tolerate here.

In this week’s column, we mention the Bluray release of the newest Uwe Boll epic to hit disc, the superbly titled In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. For fans of the filmmaker (or those who bottleneck parkways by slowing down to gawk at traffic accidents) there will be a Uwe Boll film festival at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles beginning tomorrow, Dec 17th. In addition to past efforts like Bloodrayne and Alone in the Dark, the festival will premiere Boll’s Vietnam epic, Tunnelrats and his latest video game adaptation, Far Cry (a Scribe favorite that deserved a nobler fate). Both will feature a Q&A from Mr. Boll following the showings, which is guaranteed to be livelier than anything that happens onscreen.
