A review of the CBC’s recently broadcast 6-episode adaptation of Terry Fallis’ novel Best Laid Plans, set and filmed in Ottawa, and because I’m the editor, an extract of a garden video I shot in the Gatineau region.

In a lead-up to the release of Doc Martin: Season 6 – already available in the U.S., and delayed for Canada until mid-March – from the old site I’ve transferred reviews of the films, teleplays and seasons in which Britain’s grumpiest doctor debuted, and grew into a (slightly) romantic albeit still resiliently short-tempered man.
As promised, I’ve uploaded a review of Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D (MPI / IFC), and added reviews of the director’s last two films, Giallo (2009) and Mother of Tears (2007), from the old site. Also in today’s blog: some teaser images of a camera test using a rare video camera that appears as a prop in the meh biopic jOBS (2013).
As finishing touches are being added to a short camera test video tied to the upcoming reviews of jOBS (2013) and Welcome to Macintosh (2008), here are two reviews tied to filmmakers Jeffrey Obrow and Stephen Carpenter: The Power (1984), new on DVD from Scorpion Releasing, and the still-unavailable The Kindred (1987).
The Editor’s Blog goes in-depth with much personal blather about Josh Johnson’s new documentary on VHS collecting, Rewind This! (MPI). In addition to a review of the doc, there’s a review Charlie Sheen’s No Man’s Land as watched on Betamax, a short-short film on “The Magic Beta Case,” and a review of David Gregory’s great doc on Britain’s Video Nasty era – Ban the Sadist Videos! (Severin Films).
