Keep Moving 007

Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt didn’t do so much running after all in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. But he’s not the only spy on the block who can show us a clean pair of heels. Daniel Craig as James Bond gives literal meaning to the phrase, “active duty.” And ignore that ageist crack from Silva (“Your […]

Bickle’s Got Talent? The King Of Comedy

      In this age of television wannabes and quick fix celebs, it is fitting to look back at The King Of Comedy, Martin Scorsese’s prescient examination of the modern age’s obsession with fame, and a film he himself acknowledges as a sequel of sorts to Taxi Driver, another classic misfit story. Both have […]

Scoring The Chase: The Music Of Mad Max: Fury Road

One of the many amazing elements of Mad Max: Fury Road is the incredible score, a riot of “an insane rock opera” according to composer Junkie XL, AKA Tom Holkenborg. One that at times fuses with the immense drum / guitar rig that powers Immortan Joe’s Warboys on their chase after Max, Furiosa and the […]

Lee Marvin: A Personal Portrait, By John Boorman

Lee Marvin was a star in his own firmament, a mass of contradictions and sensitivities, hidden beneath a rousing, ribald, flinty carapace. A wounded veteran of the bloody Pacific campaign in WW.II, a boozer and brawler, a poet and prince. It’s fair to say there has never been another actor quite like him. One man […]

Big Hero Dark Thirty

It’s been a while since we posted one of Jeff Yorkes’ Cinemashups, and here’s one of his more unusual ones – Disney’s Big Hero Six meets Zero Dark Thirty in Big Hero Dark Thirty! Dialogue from Kathryn Bigelow’s tense hunt for Osama Bin Laden thriller plays out over incongruous action from the endearing Baymax and […]

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 […]

Paradise – A Prometheus / Alien: Covenant Fan Edit

If, like many (misguided souls, in my opinion!), you were disappointed by both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, here’s a remedy that combines the best of both, while leaving out some of the “silly” stuff. Vimeo user Daniel aka Job Willins, who previously created a brilliant mash-up of Alien and Prometheus entitled Derelict, has worked his magic […]

Talkin’ ’bout A Revolution: Soderbergh’s The Argentine And Guerilla

The roots of the two part film adaptation of revolutionary Che Guevara’s Cuban revolution and squalid Bolivian downfall arose from a mutual interest in the story between Benicio Del Toro and director Steven Soderbergh, debated at length during the filming of the latter’s Traffic. Del Toro was one of the film’s producers and spent several […]

The latest is French journalist Michel Parbot’s fly on the wall footage from the sets and Norway location of The Empire Strikes Back. Previously this material was shown on […]
