Finally got around to watching Death Race 2050.
SO. MUCH. FUN.
My love of Death Race is a semi-personal tale.
As a young lad, I caught the original Roger Corman classic, Death Race 2000 on TV late one night when my parents weren’t aware. I was floored. By this point, I had already sewn the seeds for a love of weird and Continue reading
Man….who loves science fiction that doesn’t love robots?
Here’s a list, in no particular order, of the best robots of Science Fiction Films!!
The only real rules on this list are, a) I’m going to stick to just robots. No androids (an easy excuse to not actually create a robot for the film, or save money by just having an actor walk around claiming robotness) or cyborgs (with one arguable entry). Also, I’m going to Continue reading
In 1984, I was still reeling from the after-effects of Return of the Jedi. My mind was chocked full of dreams of the universe once more being filled by the Jedi order and huge space battles, but the knowledge that there would be no more Star Wars was troubling. I yearned for quality science fiction on the big screen, some new tale, a new hero. Sure, 1984 saw the release of some true classics like Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Conan the Destroyer, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Dune, The Neverending Story, and of course Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, all great films in their own right and truly deserved of their status in the pantheon of cinema greats, there was another film that I saw and immediately loved, one it seemed has been buried in time.

2016 has been a special year for Harry Potter fans. First we were able to get our hands on another Harry Potter book focusing on the children of our beloved characters, The Cursed Child. Now, JK Rowling has given us a brand new set of amazing characters in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In Fantastic Beasts, Harry Potter and friends do not even exist yet. Set in the mid 1920’s, we get to experience the wizarding world across the pond in New York City focusing on the adventures of Newt Scamander, author of one of the famous Hogwarts textbooks, wait for it, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t Continue reading
Part of me really wanted to write up a nice review of this movie, but ultimately, after a bit of info pertinant to the film, I’ve decided to just post the notes I took while watching this movie. Deathstalker is an insane film. The only way to write about it is just to go reactionary. That being said, as you get along this article, I’m going to bullet point the movie scene by scene. If you care about spoilers for a Deathstalker film…well, I don’t know what to tell you.
Alas, I think my notes have a magic and rhythm to them. The wonder you feel as you watch a movie of this calibur. In case you don’t want to read all the notes, I will sum up Deathstalker with Continue reading
After months of teasers and weirdly short snippets attempting to look “?”, Ghost In The Shell finally has a full teaser, showing us a bit more about what to expect from this controversially cast film.
As expected, it’s looking like
Any true afficianado of film can likely give you a list of “lost” films that they would love to see. If you’re a fan of cult films, that list is likely more detailed. Two of which that have always piqued my particular interest are Lon Chaney’s 1927 silent thriller, London At Midnight, and Jerry Lewis’ 1972 Holocaust film, The Day the Clown Cried.
I’ve honestly given up all hope of ever seeing London At Midnight as the last known copy is said to have been destroyed in the infamous MGM vault fire of 1967. The Day the Clown Cried is another story. Continue reading
If there’s one thing I’ve always found a love for and an urge to watch when there’s nothing else, it’s a good sword & sorcery flick. Bandits, Barbarians, Knights, Ladies, Wizards, Witches, Magic Swords, Dragons, Monsters, and occasionally robots (you’ll see what I mean in a minute), all of these things in a single movie sometimes, there’s just no limit to the high level of awesome these films can contain.
Here’s my list of the best of them. The “must watch” of the genre if you will. Continue reading
……I can’t stop smiling.
I am more than thankful right now for the infamous Sony leaks that ultimately lead to them conceding to Marvel and lending them the rights to everyone’s favorite webhead. Regardless, I have been nervous as all heck since the announcement that Continue reading
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (how’s the wifi down there?), you’ve likely heard that there’s a new team of Ghostbusters in town.
The trailer for the new movie dropped yesterday morning.
There’s been a lot of words thrown around about it in the past day. Not many of them very supportive. Some of them down-right mean. Continue reading
