Stranger Things

 

 Recently, for those of you that pay attention, I have had quite a few issues with anything coming out of the USA/Hollywood. (They’ve been making crap.) But as of last week they have redeemed themselves to no end. So much so, that I have re-watched this work of genius three times already. And I can tell you this: I’m going to watch Stranger Things several dozen times again. Well, at least until Season 2 comes out and helps me with my addiction. Right, so where do we start with this amazing series? Well, for one, it is one of the best Netflix owned web-series ever made. It was written and directed by the amazing Duffer Brothers. (They are veteran horror […]

Independence Day: Resurgence

 

 I have just finished watching Independence Day: Resurgence. That’s two hours of my life I’ll never get back. I feel used and betrayed. You would think that after the twenty years since they released the first film they would have at least come up with a half decent screenplay. But no. No, they simply went and reproduced every cliche they could find and added a large dollop of patriotic flag waving nonsense. For a Sci-Fi film, Independence Day: Resurgence is ass gravy of the worst time. Right then. Where shall I begin my assassination of this *vomit* film? Let’s start with the plot shall we. So the film happens, as previously stated, some twenty years after the first one. (I’m […]

The Shallows

 

 I’m back. Well sort of. Well, you’re stuck with me for a short time at any rate. That’s okay. Is it okay? I think it’s okay. Are you okay? How are you? Did you get that thing done we were talking about last year? Is it larger than expected? I hops so. You have my support if you plan to enlarge it again. Okay. Right. Let’s get on with this review. It’s been a while so bear with me. Here we go… I recently watched (30 minutes ago) the latest “killer shark” movie. For those that do not know, this film –The Shallows– it revolves around a female surfer who gets chased around the sea by a large shark. She […]

An Open Window

Today we speak to Patrick Ryder about his new film, ‘An Open Window.’ So what inspired you to create a An Open Window? Growing up I was hugely influenced by the X files, it was a show which really changed my outlook on television and production. I have made films for several years but I thought it would be really fun to make a short in the same vein as The X Files or those old classic Hammer horror films. What was the production like? It was wonderful. We had a set amount if days to shoot so it was very much about shooting in sections to make sure we had everything we needed. All the actors, especially Ais De’ath […]

The Crow: Shreds of Memories – Fan Film

 

 The Crow is a film/comic series that many of us have loved for years. So it is with great joy and enthusiasm that I introduce Italian film maker Pietro Cinieri, who recently produced a fan-made Crow movie. So what inspired you to create a Crow fan film?  I was inspired by my big passion for Proyas’ film. Furthermore, as a comic lover, I couldn’t not admire O’Barr’s work. These two factors, together with the themes of the story, feed my imagination. What was the production like?  The production wasn’t simple, particularly because it was a zero-budget project. We spent one year finding the right actor for Eric. In 2013 we bean the shooting and the production lasted one year because […]

Metal Pangolin’s Deadpool Review

 

 Deadpool was not treated well the first time he appeared on screen in X-men Origin’s Wolverin. The attempt by 20th Century fox to tell the origin story of the beserker, adamantium skeleton-laced, Canadian, claw popping mutant known around the world as Wolverine. In this botched attempt at a movie, Deadpool was only recognisable as the character he is in the comics by name alone and this left fuming. I guess this is the point in the review where I tell you who Deadpool is and what his powers are and all that other stuff but like the movie, I think it would be appropriate to go back to the start and recount how the character came about in the comics. […]

ZASCHITNIKI “GUARDIANS” – Upcoming Russian Superhero Movie

We have become so accustomed to superhero’s appearing on the big screen (particularly the Marvel variety) that they no longer seem exciting anymore due to the same formula that they use in their movies. Perhaps this is the beginning of the decline in the comic book movie genre…but, let us not get ahead of ourselves just yet. Let us take the example of this promising movie hailing all the way from Russia. Directed by Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan , “Zaschitniki” or “Guardians” tells the tale of a team of heroes created during the Cold War and imbued with extraordinary powers that allow them to perform incredible feats in the event of an attack by supernatural threats upon Russia. Years pass […]

Alan Rickman – The actor, the voice, the hero

We have lost many cult heroes in January. David Bowie, known for his unique sense of fashion, his movie roles like the Goblin King in Labyrinth and also his hit songs like “Space Oddity” and “Let’s Dance” died after an 18-month battle with cancer on January 10th. Glenn Frey from the band The Eagles who co-wrote the cult favourite song, Hotel California with Don Henley passé away on January 18th. Another legend, Alan Rickman, died on January 14. He died of pancreatic cancer. January is a sad month for those that followed the careers of these legends. But today we celebrate Alan Rickman. He died of cancer at age 69, after quite an impressive career. Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman, born […]

Ash vs evil dead

 

 I adore the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise. I love Ash. He’s amazingly entertaining. And the Deadites are such an entertaining bag of undead crazies. For those that do not know, the Evil Dead franchise is one of the most influential pop-culture film series in history. Before the ‘Supernatural Bromance’ we had Ash, and the deadites. So you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered they were not only making an Evil Dead TV series, but that it was not a reboot, and that Ash would be in it in all his Bruce Campbell like glory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unnLg1TPCYM The series takes place some three decades after Ash returns to Earth. (American ending of Army of Darkness). Obviously, Ash is working in […]
