The Man Who Would Be Bond

In 1983 there were few men on God’s green Earth to compare with Lewis Collins. He was a real man. Not a namby-pamby, simpering wimp of a man like you or me, no. A real man. Women wanted to be with him, men were beaten up by him. Furniture doubtlessly orgasmed by having been sat […]

Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade, a fan film

In anticipation of the latest Star Wars “stand-alone” story Rogue One, here is a surprisingly fun fan made short stand alone, featuring none other than the Galaxy’s greatest scoundrel, Han Solo. Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade stars Jamie Costa as Han Solo, with Corey Daniel as everyone’s favourite Wookiee Chewbacca. Playing the villain of the […]

Tom Cruise – Villain Or hero?

When people think of Tom Cruise what do they see? That shit eating grin, the Scientology, star power? I prefer to think of Cruise as a character actor trapped in a superstar’s body. Once he went stratospheric with Top Gun, he began to seek out more interesting parts, and get the attention of some great […]

Kubrick Homages Within Spielberg’s A.I: Artificial Intelligence

It’s well known that Stanley Kubrick was a director who nurtured projects for a long time before even committing to film them. AI: Artificial Intelligence is the most well known of his projects that never got off the ground under his own steam, although Steven Spielberg completed the work under his aegis from beyond the […]

“I Got A Live One Here!” Prince And Batman

Prince had a sweet deal with his Batman tie-in album – asked aboard the Gotham gravy train by director Tim Burton to contribute a couple of background numbers, he ended up releasing a “music from and inspired by” album of nine tracks, without having to do the heavy lifting of scoring the drama and action […]

From 2001 To Gravity, Via Chris Hadfield And Space Oddity

Remember that cool video astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield posted of him performing Bowie’s Space Oddity in the International Space Station? After the time limit on his permission from Bowie’s people to post it expired, he took it down from his You Tube page. He has now made it a private video. However! You can still […]

Getting Carter: Retracing The Film’s Locations

Here’s a nice little film by four young college students originally made in 2003 as coursework, retracing several of the iconic locations from classic grim British crime thriller, Get Carter.

Merry Christmas – A Shane Black Tribute

“An action movie should, like any other, follow the narrative traditions of literature. That means there should be subtlety, a slow build and a gradual bringing together of all the separate threads of the plot. To see all of it coming together slowly is very rewarding for the audience.” – Shane Black Or, alternatively, you […]

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, […]

Vanishing Point: Existential Drift

“The car’s the star,” director Richard Sarafian believed of Vanishing Point, miffed that the studio overruled his choice of Gene Hackman as leading man. They made him cast Barry Newman as the delivery driver who evades the police across multiple State lines, to deliver a White Dodge Challenger in record time. What Sarafian didn’t get was, […]
