rabid jaguar screaming in ecstasy high up in the jungle canopy. I can't wait to see this movie!
Aug. 3, 2009, 5:04 p.m. CST
Guess maybe I ought to get around to watching it.

I was very pleasantly surprised by how well done The Collector was. Josh Stewart as Arkin is one of the smartest, most believable Horror protagonists in quite awhile. The movie works because of how intelligent and wary Arkin is. The Collector is one of the best movies of the year.

I missed the first screening of it (it was up against something I wanted to see) and when I tried to get tix for the second screening, I was informed that they had to send the film they had to another festival, because it was the only copy stateside.

for many of the reasons Massawyrm said but also for how unique some of the good vs. evil elements are. Kick in that I adore Russian mythology and Aleksandr Bukharov being note perfect in the lead role: stoic, butt-kicking and pretty cute in his fake beard. I'm hoping this does well enough to get the Volkodav (Wolfhound) novels translated into English. Yes, that's a big damn hope, but a gal can dream. I'm glad to see my favorite fantasy film is getting some AICN.com luv. Can't wait to hear the English dub, although the Russian is awesome. Spasibo for the great review 'Wyrm.

I'll definitely give it a look-see

That skinemax she-wolf straight to video POS set in Ireland. Just be sure you don't pick that trash up by mistake because it has the exact same title.

I want some visuals; this movie sounds cool.

It was in stores here two years ago.

What kind of movie geek -- especially a supposed huge fan of a certain movie waits for YEARS until a movie is released on DVD in their home region? Any real movie geek has a region-free, PAL/NTSC DVD player in their homes and doesn't respect puny limitations like region codes. <p> Wolfhound has been out for ages on DVD in R2 land -- WITH English subtitles. <p> There is simply no excuse for being hampered by region codes and a situation like this calls for more shame than elation. <p> Think of it, Massa, on your deathbed you'll be looking back on a couple of wasted years watching your screener rather than a real release. Will it be worth it?

...people who enjoy watching dubbed movies also let flies walk on their ice cream cones and move their lips when they read comic books.

Oh, hey Doc.

It was your sterling review of the film which prompted me to seek it out as soon as possible which is why it's been in my collection for quite some time now. I'm simply shocked that you've waited this long for a film you profess to love. <p> If that makes me a "hipster elitist", so be it.

It wasn't horrible, I just wish they would've left all the torture porn (it's like someone opening their mouth when they're chewing food and saying "LOOK!") out. It just doesn't work anymore. I think it hurt the movie actually.
Aug. 4, 2009, 6:34 a.m. CST
Now there's a trash classic.
Aug. 4, 2009, 6:49 a.m. CST
but I must say, this is old news, glad to hear its on dvd.
Aug. 4, 2009, 6:57 a.m. CST
and I want to see rockhead too!
Aug. 4, 2009, 7:34 a.m. CST
this is going toward the top of my netflix queue. It sounds like something I may enjoy. I can't bring myself to buy it, but only because I don't buy DVD anymore. I'm a blu ray snob these days...lol
Aug. 4, 2009, 8:30 a.m. CST
Exactly. No way will I buy DVD again. Likes like saying "NEW ON VHS! DON'T MISS IT!"
Aug. 4, 2009, 8:36 a.m. CST
Easily amused and easily annoyed. It's no wonder he screwed this film over.

that you can compare Conan the Barbarian to those other 80's movies. I think I will buy or rent Wolfhound.
Aug. 4, 2009, 10:25 a.m. CST
I totally agree with you, Conan the Barbarian is in a different league than the other 80s fantasy movies. Conan the Destroyer on the other hand...
Aug. 4, 2009, 12:37 p.m. CST
why are you people giving your in depth reviews of the collector in this talkback? fuck that movie. drag me to hell blows that crap away! Wolfhound is the topic here and russians clearly know how to make a fantasy movie!
Aug. 4, 2009, 12:54 p.m. CST
I really thought there would be a renaissance of fantasy films after the success of LOTR. Boy, was I wrong. Unfortunately, I have to get my fix from Legend of the Seeker.

If i recall correctly, doesn't Marc Singer use his ferret accomplices to steal a chicks clothes while she bathes, then has his eagle 'attack' her so he can sidle in to rescue her. Which is pretty much what I'd use my powers for, if I had them.
Aug. 4, 2009, 9:20 p.m. CST
and incidentally WolfHound has to be one of the best titles ever...
Aug. 5, 2009, 7:07 a.m. CST
Great piece, but please, please, please stop saying 'smoke 'em if you got 'em.' Very bad message to send out to kids and come on, smoking stopped being cool in the nineties.
