Hey Mickey – You talkin’ to me?

I don’t know what’s more perverse – Taxi Driver’s glimpse into the scum slicked mind set of Robert De Niro’s disturbed urban avenger, Travis Bickle, or this nuts and very funny parody by Bryan Boyce, Walt Disney’s Taxi Driver. We first see Cybil Shepherd’s Betsy with an animated blue bird fluttering on her arm. Instead […]

Die Harder: Die Hard 2

“Oh man, I can’t fucking believe this. Another basement, another elevator. How can the same shit happen to the same guy twice?” How indeed? Well true simple answer is of course that after John McClane had single handily reinvented the action hero and put people muscles like Stallone and Schwarzenegger out of business, it was […]

Mad Mann: Fury Road – Steven Spielberg’s Duel

Duel, was Steven Spielberg’s 1971 television – movie calling card to the big leagues. It works not just as a primal gas guzzling thriller of implacable threat, between the little guy and an uncaring force that literally wants to squeeze him out of the frame. It’s also a study of both paranoia and modern male […]

Bob Hoskins 1942 – 2014

Only in a world gone mad would a diminutive, hairy, bald, tubby cockney become one of the world’s greatest film stars, but the 1980s were just that. A topsy turvy world with crazy dreamscapes fuelled by cocaine, champagne and hair gel. That’s not to say Hoskins was there by accident, no, this was earned. He […]

Jason Bourne: The Penitent Assassin

  Jason Bourne – his surname a play on words: born patriot; born again; born to survive. A highly trained CIA black ops assassin, with a hole in his mind to match the three in his back. Yet, a conflicted hero, with a need in this Snowden-era of obfuscation and deniability, to reconcile his violent […]

James Cameron And The Xenogenesis Of Aliens’ Powerloader

It’s an iconic moment in action film history – Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), previously hidden behind a huge locked door and thinking fast, stomps out in a previously viewed innocuous – looking “future fork-lift” to smackdown the Alien Queen chasing a scuttling Newt (Carrie Henn) around the Sulaco hold. Just how did writer / director James Cameron […]

Notes From The Frontline: 1979 Rolling Stone Interview With Apocalypse Now Director Francis Ford Coppola

It’s incredible to think how Apocalypse Now started out in the minds of  George Lucas, John Milius and Francis Ford Coppola as a cheap, verite, band on the run type feature. Sound designer Walter Murch recalled Coppola’s exhausted feelings after directing The Godfather PtII: “Why do films always have to be this way for me? Why do I […]
