• Entitled: Marco Polo

    Marco Polo is a major new Netflix show on the eponymous Venetian explorer’s adventures in the court of Kublai Khan, the Mongol founder of the Yuan dynasty in 13th century China. As exotic as Game Of Thrones, yet grounded in a relatability – young Marco (Lorenzo Richelmy) is described by director Daniel Minahan (Dead Wood, […]

  • Forgiven, Not Four-gotten – Recalling Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four

    Here’s a film that doesn’t quite fit into our “Great Unmade” slot, yet, unless you have a bootleg copy, or catch it on YouTube, you’ll never see this unloved, bastard offspring of the Marvel universe. Seemingly Doomed (pun intended) from the start, Roger Corman’s Concorde-New horizons Pictures was tasked by rights holders Neue Constantin Films, […]

  • Sympathy For The Devil? Peaky Blinders’ Inspector Campbell

    Minor spoilers ahead Peaky Blinders, BBC2’s new Autumn drama approaching its end run, has blown away the dusty cobwebs from traditional period storytelling fare. Writer / director Steven Knight (Eastern promises, Dirty pretty Things, Hummingbird) has created a stylised urban gangster drama based on fact, set in a post WWI 1919 Birmingham – a hitherto little […]

  • Apocalypse Wow: The Fury Road To Max Rockatansky’s Rebirth

    Like its eponymous wandering haunted hero, hooked up intravenously to Warboy Nux, Mad Max:Fury Road has provided a shot in the arm and jolt to the gonads of action cinema. And not just action – the spectacle, verve, colour and pared down themes recalling and improving on so much of the 100 + years of […]

  • Batman Begins -“Beautiful Lie” Alternate Opening

    One of the strongest elements of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the visual style created by director Zack Snyder and cinematographer Larry Fong. That, and elements of Hans Zimmer and Junki XL’s score. With that in mind, Anton Volk has decided to edit an alternate opening to Christoper Nolan’s Batman Begins along the same […]

  • James Cameron Avatar Interview

    “Nothin’s over while I’m breathin!” Stephen Lang’s Colonel Quaritch snarled in Avatar, just before he took two Na’vi arrows to the chest. Or indeed, while he continues to breath (or does he?) in the sequels – writer, producer, director James Cameron has announced he’s back on board, in one way or another: “I’m not going to say […]

  • Catcher In The Wry: When The Rom-Com Went Retro

    Ever since the first caveman dragged his mate back to the cave, men and women have seemingly been at loggerheads. In the fifties and sixties, sex comedies were all the rage, and the reigning queen was Doris Day. She embodied the emancipated but starry-eyed woman who butts heads with pig-headed alpha males like James Garner […]

  • Blade Runner & Basic Instinct: parallel (interrogation) lines

    There is an interesting comparison to be made ( originally in a single video via deepglamour.net) between the Voight-Kampff test Harrison Ford’s Deckard carries out on Sean Young’s Rachel in Blade Runner, and Michael Douglas’s Nick Curran interrogating murder suspect Catherine Trammell (Sharon Stone) in Basic Instinct. Both women are supremely poised, coolly smoking. Each […]

  • The Last Thing You See: A Final Shot Montage

    Inspired by The Final Image, Plot Point Productions have created this wonderful montage, a self-styled “meditation on the beautiful, cathartic, and transcendent power of the final shot.” See if you can guess every film featured. If you’re stumped, the video itself has a full list of every film at each moment in the video, which is broken into […]
