Media

Books

Nonfiction:

Film/TV

Live-action:

  • (1932; review)
  • (2014; mockumentary of contemporary vampires in the slacker vein, What We Do is better than it sounds because of a surprisingly thoughtful depiction of the dullness and vexations of such a life.)
  • (1986; firmly in the “so bad it’s good” cluster, this is an intensely ’80s-ish martial arts melodrama, complete with a frame story which is entirely forgotten by the ending, which avoids insufferability by being low-key subversive humor where bumbling protagonist Kurt Russell is really the sidekick to his Asian partner who does most of the work)
