ReWatch – Tomorrow Never Dies

I’m a huge Pierce Brosnan fan and was gutted when I discovered he was no longer in the running to play Cable in Deadpool 2. If any movie could have benefitted from his awesomeness it would have been Deadpool 2. When someone makes a remix of David Harbour yelling a classic movie line, then I’ll […]

Freaks And Geeks – ReWatch

I recently rewatched Paul Feig‘s quirky show Freaks and Geeks and man, I had missed that show. First aired in 1999, the retro sitcom follows a group of misfitted high-school students in the early 1980s. Paul Feig is a well-known actor, director and producer, with credits such as Bridesmaids, Spy and Sabrina The Teenage Witch, yet this […]

Rewind: Herbert West: Re-Animator

1985’s Re-Animator is pretty great. It’s a zombie film based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Herbert West: Re-Animator, the tale of a doctor’s quest to conquer death along with his accomplice who just wishes to do good. The film is considered a cult classic due in no small part to the terrific performance of Jeffrey Combs as […]

Shaft (1971) – ReWatch

Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of Shaft, the jewel in the crown of the blaxploitation genre. Even the powerful effect this film had on American cinema is overshadowed by its phenomenal cultural impact. Richard Roundtree’s portrayal of John Shaft turned him into a cinema icon and became a measuring stick for power, strength, confidence and […]

Rewatch: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

It’s really no wonder that Scott Pilgrim became such a cult hit. Directed by Edgar Wright of Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz fame, based on a series of successful graphic novels, a soundtrack from some of the world’s most acclaimed indie musicians and stellar performances from a mix of well-known names and […]

Rewind: Jason X

Jason Voorhees, like most horror icons, has had a few more film appearances than necessary with the number of sequels to his first appearance firmly in the region of ‘far too many’. Ever since the original Friday The 13th terrified audiences and put an axe in Kevin Bacon’s head, the cult of personality surrounding the […]
