• Nakatomi Plaza – Live Free And Dream Hard?

    “Welcome to the party, pal!” Yes, on this date, July 15 1988, action movies changed forever. Move over Arnie and Sly, Detective John McClane (Bruce Willis, in his big screen breakout role) is an accidental hero, the proverbial “fly in the ointment, the pain in the ass.” In L.A to visit his estranged wife Holly […]

  • Michael Caine, IPCRESS, and Merv Griffin

    Michael Caine’s first appearance on U.S television was in 1965, but it wasn’t in a studio, oh no *adjusts glasses* it was with top host Merv Griffin on his own bleedin’ doorstep, in his London Mews home. And we ‘ave it for you *voice drops an octave* right..here.

  • The Great Batty? A Daisy Chain Connects Blade Runner And Luhrmann’s Gatsby

    Ah, twitter. It’s great when you throw an idea out there and some kindred soul flies with it. The other day I tweeted, “Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and Blade Runner – crazy companion pieces?” Well, Paul Bullock saw the connection, and together we volleyed back and forth a few ideas on links between the films, specifically, the […]

  • New Kid in Town: Predator 2

      As the dust settled within the giant crater in Val Verde, and Anna and Dutch got to the chopper. One thing was for sure, we would be seeing that “ugly mutha fu*ker” again. A sequel was as inevitable as a cabinet minister being captured when flying on the wrong side of da border. The […]

  • Scene Of The Crime: Boom!

    In 1966, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor delivered a blistering take on marital strife in Mike Nichol’s adaptation of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? After that, they acted together in an adaptation of  The Taming Of The Shrew. Clearly they were developing a taste (and knack) for transferring the magic of theatre to the big screen. Cut […]

  • Predator: Goin’ Crazy, Down in Val Verde

    On location in steamy Mexico, the terrain is so uneven that cast and crew have long forgotten the last day they stood up straight while filming. Today is the day the fearsome alien creature that has been stalking and picking off Arnold Schwarzenegger’s band of alpha-male hard-asses makes its debut. Only when the suit is […]

  • Star Wars: The Blackened Mantle, A Prequel Re-edit

    We’re all aware of the fan edits of films out there, especially those of the Star Wars prequels. Here’s a relatively new one, entitled Star Wars: The Blackened Mantle. What’s unusual about it is the editor, Darth Lunar, has refashioned the dialogue in Japanese, with English subtitles. Somehow this, combined with the editing choices, makes […]
