• Jon’s Top 10 of 2014

        Ahem. Is…is this thing still on? I know I haven’t posted in months and while I want to bring up a ton of excuses the biggest of all those would be that time is truly a revelator. However with the year winding down I feel like I wanted to share with you my […]

  • Tim’s Top Ten Of 2014

    It’s that time of year again. I’ve been making a list, checking it twice, finding out which films this year have been naughty or nice. Here are the ones I thought made the grade – I could equally make a list of seemingly great films I just didn’t get around to this year, as ever, […]

  • Re-appreciation Society: The Hill

      In a world where Jack and Stan’s On The Buses antics are all available on R2 DVD, it is a crime that one of the great underrated films of not only Sir Sean Connery’s career, but that of its director, Sidney Lumet, should still be unavailable on these shores. In this film, British army […]

  • Drew’s Top 10 Modern Movies

    Like all movie sites, we all might as well contribute our top 10 movies. Since Sight & Sound seems to have neglected every movie made while anyone who was alive today was making movies, we’re keeping ours in the post-70s. Here is my personal best: 10. Airplane! (1980) I can’t help but put this movie […]

  • Unscene Is Believing: Interstellar – Absolute Zero

    Christopher Nolan doesn’t do deleted scenes, but if he did, they’d probably be…hang on, this is beginning to sound like a certain lager commercial. He does occasionally fill in back story in comic strip form, though. He did so with Inception, now, under his guest editorship of the December issue of Wired, he’s doing it […]

  • Scene Is Believing: The Dark Knight Rises

      The IMAX prologue: Bane takes the plane Early positive reviews for Sam Mendes’ Skyfall are hailing it as James Bond’s renaissance, Nolan-esque in terms of scale and depth. Mendes himself has acknowledged The Dark Knight in particular as a big influence – “What Nolan proved was that you can make a huge movie that […]

  • Scene Is Believing: Interstellar

    “Time and tide wait for no man” – Chaucer The water planet Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is full of spectacular images and locations, both space and planet bound. One of the most deadly is the watery world perched perilously on the limits of an orbit around a black hole, labelled Gargantua by the crew of the […]

  • A revenant’s revenge – John Boorman’s Point Blank

    “I bet you’re a big Lee Marvin fan, aren’t you?” If you are, you’ll rate Point Blank highly, especially as he and director John Boorman considered it a metaphysical exploration of the actor’s troubled soul. Boorman and Marvin struck up an enduring friendship when they met during Marvin’s filming of The Dirty Dozen. For this […]

  • Wish You Were Here – Revisiting Film Locations

    You’ve probably seen various blogs comparing stills of famous film locations to how they appear now, mundane without that movie magic glow. Herve Attia has gone one better, creating short videos on his Vimeo channel that not only compare, but have him revisit those locations in person, even inserting himself into the action occuring on those […]
