• “I’ve Got It!” – A Sort of Tribute to King Solomon’s Mines

    Have you ever watched any of the Indiana Jones films and thought to yourself, “I wish Indy had a beard, was mildly stupid and felt like he was mildly watered down and sort of done on the cheap”? Well, luckily for you, a film exists to suit your needs exactly, and it is called King Solomon’s […]

    Marty Stalker is a former Royal Marine turned film director. Liverpool born and now based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, he has  previously directed short films, documentaries, music videos and several TV commercials for both UK and US television.

  • Scene Is Believing: The Dark Knight

    Crazy clown time- The Dark Knight’s Joker interrogation   For this month’s Scene is Believing, I thought it would be apt to (a) look back at the previous chapter in director Christopher Nolan’s unintended Batman trilogy, and (b) take a look at his favourite scene from that film, which underscores even further the influence of […]

  • Lawrence Of Arabia: A Desert Odyssey

    “All men dream, but not equally…” T.E.Lawrence  The word “epic” is bandied about too easily these days. Along with its running mate “awesome”, its value has been cheapened by everyday use. But certain films have cause to claim that word as their primary definition, for no other will suffice – such a film is Lawrence […]

  • A Misleading Study In Melancholy: The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

    “Yeah, just ain’t no peace with old Jesse around.” Defiantly uncommercial, from the King James bible cadence of its players victoriana valedictions, to the shaggy dog narrative of an outlaw folk hero’s last days, that stretches on beyond his titular killing – even Terrence Malick called this film slow. Yet this badly marketed 2007 film […]

  • Behind The Bamboo Curtain: Apocalypse Now Revealed

    Secondary school. Shit. I’m still only in secondary school. I vividly remember where I was the first time I saw Apocalypse Now. It was in our school amphitheatre during a lull towards the end of term, when traditionally the big telly would be wheeled out and a film was put in the video top loader […]

  • Scene Is Believing: McCabe & Mrs Miller

    McCabe & Mrs Miller arose out of Warren Beatty’s frustrations with Robert Towne over finalising a script for Shampoo, his next pet project with his then lover, Julie Christie. If he thought he was frustrated with Towne, wait until he butted heads with his chosen McCabe director, Robert Altman. The stop-gap  movie script was based […]

  • Bowie 2001 A Space Oddity

      British music artist Fritz Von Runte has crafted a symbiotic fusion of of eerie David Bowie remixes with the timeless visual poetry of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The result is a hypnotic, surreal mixpiece experience: Bowie 2001 A Space Oddity. Von Runte has raided Bowie’s classic back catalogue, remixing tracks such as […]

  • Top 10 Things I want to see from Skyfall

        10. The gun barrel   While many among you may say, “Ah yes, but the gun barrel was in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace” I would counter that argument by saying, “No it wasn’t – sod off”. In Casino Royale it was barely there and in QoS it appears at the very end. The end?? […]
