The Revenge of the Green Dragons

Crime movies are released pretty regularly. They’re easy to make from a logistical point of view. They don’t require tons of special effects and high profile actors. But, let’s be honest, most of them aren’t earth shattering. They’re just not. Yeah, of course there are amazing crime films made. But let’s be real. They’re few and far between. Well, the godfather of crime films is executive producing a new one […]

Check Out Tim Burton’s Hansel & Gretel

Tim Burton is a highly acclaimed, much beloved film director. But like everyone he had to start off at the bottom. He had to work his way up. He had to claw his way out of obscurity, just like everyone else. Well, recently, a copy of one of Burton’s first short films has appeared online. It’s a retelling of Hansel & Gretel. Is it good? Well, not not really. Is […]

Friday the 13th Reboot Could Be Directed By David Bruckner

The newest incarnation of the Friday the 13th franchise has been simmering for a while. We’ve heard rumors of found footage, of complete rejection of all the films that had come before, and a return to original continuity. Any and all of which have pros and cons. The film just got a massive injection of cool this week as the word on the street is that David Bruckner, one of […]

Hiroshi Fujioka To Return To Kamen Rider

The tokusatsu phenomenon known as Kamen Rider owns a great deal of its success to the man who originally donned the grasshopper themed helmet, Hiroshi Fujioka. Fujioka will return to the franchise that he left nearly 38 years ago. Fujioka’s Hongo Takeshi aka Kamen Rider 1 will appear alongside the already announced Kamen Rider X actor Ryo Hayami. The theme of this years annual team up/crossover/beat down film is Showa […]

No, It’s Really Good: Jingle All The Way (Film Review)

Most individuals with discerning taste would instantly dismiss Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990’s failed attempt at a comedic reinvention as nothing more than an actor who has a terrible agent or misguided career goals. However, I’d like to play devil’s advocate for the 1996 pseudo chuckle-fest Jingle All The Way. In the holy quadinity of Schwarzenegger’s comedic efforts Jingle All The Way is far and away the most subversive. Oh, sure, Junior, […]

Her (Film Review)

Spike Jonze, without a doubt, is one of the most interesting and district filmmakers currently working. His narrative sense and knack for comedy intricately combine to make a viewing experience unlike any other. Her is a film about a man falling in love with an operating system, yes . But it’s about so much more. It’s about how the need for companionship and understanding is a deep-seeded human desire. It’s […]

The Wind Rises (Film Review)

Hayao Miyazaki is one of the most beloved filmmakers on the surface of the planet. His creations have entertained and enthralled millions of people from a myriad of backgrounds and cultural viewpoints. The writer and director of such masterpieces as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Nausicaa is on the verge of releasing his final animated feature film. I was lucky enough to see a screening of the film last night […]

The Greatest Movies Never Made: Phantasm 1999AD

Phantasm is a cult icon. With the original film and the three subsequent sequels all being directed by the storytelling master Don Coscarelli, The Tall Man has become a cult icon in the vein of Freddy, Jason, and Michael. Don Coscarelli is an intensely interesting filmmaker. To say that he’s prolific, wouldn’t be exactly true. The man usually takes eight to ten years between films, which can be maddening if […]

No, It’s Really Good: Scanners II: The New Order

David Cronenberg is not known for launching franchises. He’s known for crafting intense psychological horror films that deal with trauma inflicted from within the body. Cronenberg is a master craftsman and one of the most prestigious filmmakers currently living. His 1981 instant cult classic is one of the finest horror films of the decade. It’s a searing indictment of corporate greed, governmental manipulation and the horrors that are endemic to […]

Lifeforce (Film Review)

Everyone in the horror community knows the name Tobe Hooper. He’s the man who directed one of the most terrifying films of all time, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. What most people don’t remember Tobe Hooper for is directing a little film called Lifeforce. Lifeforce was the first in Tobe Hooper’s three picture deal with Cannon Films. The other two were Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and the remake of Invaders from […]

No, It’s Really Good: Phantasm III

The Phantasm franchise is one of those pseudo hidden gems that exist in plain sight but never really gets the recognition it deserves. Throughout the four released Phantasm movies writer/director Don Coscarelli weaves a fun filled, horror packed, gore-slosion tale of suspense and awesomeness. Yes, that’s right. Coscarelli, the man who brought you the Beastmaster, Bubba Ho-Tep, and John Dies At The End wrote and directed all four Phantasm movies. […]

The Last Circus (Film Review)

Every once and a while you go to a friend’s house for a movie night and you get blown away. Not just ‘man, that movie was awesome’ good, but ‘how have I existed without seeing this film’ good. That’s what my viewing experience of The Last Circus was like. The Last Circus is a film about clowns. It’s also about war and family and love and revenge and insanity. The […]

The Burning (Film Review)

In the cult horror circles here in Los Angeles there’s one movie that fanatics obsess over more than most. That movie is The Burning. I’ve been on multiple sets where everyone from the gaffers to the director are chatting about the brilliance of and immense impact that The Burning had on them. The Burning, like many horror films from the 80’s, centers on a group of summer camp inhabitants.  The […]
