Pre-2018 Film Reviews
- Excerpt: The Ro-Man himself (and his identical commander), with his emphatic gesturing and halting, sonorous cadence, his hulking, shaggy body and bulbous, shining helmet with a blank and featureless face suggested within, is a wonderful creation both despite and because of his tackiness.
