Rod Taylor dead at 84: Actor best known for 'The Time Machine' and 'The Birds' Rod Taylor, best remembered for the early 1960s movies The Time Machine and The Birds, and for his supporting role as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino's international hit Inglourious Basterds, has died.

How Many of the Movies from Roger Ebert's List of Great Movies Have You Seen?

I've mentioned before how several years ago I created a list using Roger Ebert's Great Movies, Oscar Best Picture winners, IMDb's Top 250, etc. and began going through them doing my best to see as many of the films on these lists that I had not seen as I possibly could to up my film I.Q. Well, someone has gone through the exhaustive effort to take all of the films Roger Ebert wrote about in his three "Great Movies" books, all of which are compiled on his website and added them to a Letterbxd list and I've added that list below. I'm not positive every movie on his list is here, but by my count there are 363 different titles listed (more if you count the trilogies, the Up docs and Decalogue) and of those 363, I have personally seen 229 and have added an * next to those I've seen. Clearly I have some work to do,

Album Review: Mayak – Allegiance To None

Keep on screaming until your lungs come out. I will hunt you down.

Lyrics from “Jagdgründe”.

One of my favorite metal discoveries of 2013 was German band Mayak. After hitting the replay button over and over again on their four-song Ep, I’m happy to report that the noisy quad has finally released their first full-length, Allegiance to None. The band originally hoped to release the record in the spring of 2014 but for whatever reason, that didn’t happen. But you know that old school saying that good things come to those who wait? It totally applies to Allegiance to None.

I’m a huge fan of death metal, especially if it contains a few grim grooves along the way. Seven songs strong, Allegiance picks up where the bands energetic Ep left off, with a few apocalyptic touches along the way. Full of high-energy riffs and gravelly vocals from Mark Döring,
