It’s time once again for the Weekly Weblinks. It’s the last Friday in September, and that means we’re almost to that time of year when half the movie blogs, this site included, start filling their rosters with a bunch of horror films and monster movies. But even though we’ve had a few early arrivals, this week is (almost) free from frights, at least in the blog posts, though certain classics make appearances in the news post.
On the blogging front, a couple classic films get reviewed, as well as one of 2012′s, and a combination review and interview about an under-the-radar film from last year. In the news, a franchise relaunches, another gets a sequel, and a couple unexpected movie-to-TV adaptations. Read on for the details! Continue reading →

Alicia does not share her father’s politics; in fact, she seems to want nothing to do with politics at all. She would much rather spend her days and nights socializing and carousing. All that changes when she is visited at one of her parties by a man called Devlin (Grant). Continue reading →
