Alligator (a movie review)

You might remember me talking (actually writing) about the time I haven’t had the access to movies. Yep, VHS players and tapes in communist Czechoslovakia were only for a few chosen ones, usually rich enough and with good connections.

Maneater series: Wywern (a movie review)

Sometimes you need to leave all the silliness behind and pick some drama based on true events. Well, but Wywern it certainly isn’t! Seriously, if you connect the dots, namely, the title of the movie (yes, wywern is an ancient non-firebreathing dragon from Viking lore) and the fact it’s a made-for-TV movie aired on SyFy Channel, you should know pretty well by now what to expect.

In case you don’t, let’s see what we have here. Wywern is 2009 Canadian-American co-production about wywern terrorizing a small Alaskan town. Few people are eaten, some damage done, in the end, wywern dies. Did you expect anything else? No? Good, because this is basically what you get.
