Rollins becoming TV movie critic

Dec. 2, 2004 at 3:30 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Rocker and self-proclaimed angry man Henry Rollins is embarking on a new career as a TV film critic, promising all "a fair shake."

But he also pledges, "If a film angers me, I'll torch it," the New York Daily News said.

Rollins, front man for the punk band Black Flag in the '80s, is expected to be different from the usual critic but talks up front of a wide array of movie likes.

"Henry's Film Corner," to air the first Saturday of every month at midnight, makes its debut this Saturday.

There also will be an examination of political and social issues in films and "Rollins' Revenge," a segment in which no movie will be safe.

Rollins proclaims his love for art-house dramas and such foreign directors as Akira Kurosawa and Werner Herzog before rhapsodizing about "Die Hard" and "Predator."

"Every genre will get a fair shake on my show," Rollins said.
