Land Of The Dead (Mark's Take)
01/09/2006. What happens when after the dead have returned they set up their own society, posits Mark? George Romero continues his saga of the aftermath of the dead returning to eat the living. Romero is more interested in Technicolor gore effects and in young people shooting big guns than in telling a frightening story. If any thing he has moved from horror to science fiction. But really it is an excuse to create an action film for the teenage crowd on Friday night.

Laserblast (Geoff's take)

Le Pacte Des Loups (The Brotherhood Of The Wolf)
01/12/2001. A strange and fearsome beast is preying on the peasants of the Gevaudan region of France.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole
1/1/2011. Spectacularly animated, this US-Australian coproduction has a lot to offer visually, but it goes decidedly off the tracks in telling its story of an apocalyptic battle between good and evil owls. It makes an attempt at mystical magic, but it never overcomes the obstacles that the film sets for itself.

Legion DVD (2010)
1/8/2010. region 2 DVD. pub: Sony Pictures B0033AGJ1S. 1 DVD 100 minute film with extras. Price: £19.99 (UK).

Les Revenants (Mark's Take)
02/11/2004. A creative and intelligent recycling of the horror concept of the dead returning, but this time it is used for non-horror purposes. Les Revenants runs into pacing problems toward the middle.

Let the Right One In (Mark's take)
01/01/2009. With, believes Mark, marked similarities to Carrie this is a Swedish vampire film. Oskar, the most bullied boy in school, makes friends with a girl who appears to be his own age, but is somehow different. The somehow is that she is a vampire, living a life as isolated in her way as Oskar is in his. The two form a bond against a background of vampire-related killings. In spite of the fantasy motif this is a serious film about serious problems.

Let the Right One In (Mark's take)
01/01/2011. Being bullied in school is warping Owen's personality, but he makes a new friend in an apparently female vampire his own age. The two people - each troubled but for very different reasons - form a close bond. Matt Reeves, director of Cloverfield, directs a remake of Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In (2008) for the newly resurrected Hammer Films. The film leaves the fans very ambivalent.

Let the Right One In aka Låt den rätte komma
01/05/2009. movie: Swedish with sub-titles now on general release. director: Thomas Alfredsson. Writer: John Lindqvist.

Like a Flame to a Moth(man)
01/04/2002. Dennis Schwartz brings you his thoughts on Richard Gere's latest movie, The Mothman Prophecies.

Lilo and Stitch
01/10/2002. More SF movie action for Frank. 'Alien'-ation from another planet takes a Hawaiian vacation in the cute but thinly breezy sci-fi animation flick "Lilo & Stitch".

Lockout (Frank's take)
01/05/2012. The sci-fi futuristic fable Lockout is a sluggish slapdish of a space thriller that sputters about without an original bone in its bloated body. Bogged down by shoddy writing, weak-kneed acting, recycled special effects, choppy editing, indistinguishable lighting, a cascade of clichés and a familiar blueprint borrowed from a number of past movies catering to the genre, Lockout is an uninvolving actioner that wallows in its derivative dribble.

Long Live the Minority
01/08/2002. Steven Spielberg adapts a story by Philip K. Dick to create a marvelously faceted and incredibly dark vision of the future. Minority Report is the movie, and this is the best damn review of the film you're likely to read.

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Frank's Take)
01/01/2003. Jackson proudly pounds his chest, and rightly so, as he ushers in the second instalment of Tolkien's universe in the masterful sequel The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Frank finds a film that is intriguingly breathtaking and sensually stimulating, The Two Towers is even more cinematically sound than the first outing.

Lordy Lordy: The Fellowship of the Ring
01/01/2002. Three hours of what may be just about the best fantasy film ever made tells the story of J. R. R. Tolkien's THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING. Intelligent and visually beautiful, Peter Jackson's first film of the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy is an instant classic and quite possibly this generation's GONE WITH THE WIND.

Lost season 6
01/10/2010. Lost The Complete Final Season 6. region 2 blu-ray: pub: Buena Vista Home Entertainment B0036DE0MW. 5 blu-ray disks 795 minutes 17 episodes with extras Price: GBP60.99 (UK)) stars: Evangeline Lily, Matthew Fox and Josh Holloway.
