My favorite trend in the film industry recently is the proliferation of Video On Demand. While mainstream cinema has become homogenized and branded to obscene degrees, the most interesting and original movies out today are more readily available than ever before. If you are not watching a movie on VOD every week, you are missing out on some of the best cinema in recent years.
What do you get when you combine a fifteen-year-old Christian Bale, an understated Charlton Heston (sans neckerchief), and a troupe of Hammer horror actors? My favorite film version of Treasure Island.
