‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’-Cheesiness At Its Best

Yes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is cheesy. Yes, it’s totally a throwback to the 1960s, not just in content but in style. Yes, it’s predictable and unrealistic. And yes, if you like spy movies, you should totally go see it. Not because it’s artful, but because it’s fun–as was the 60s TV series from which it hails. If you want a movie with style, action and a bit of comedy, […]

The Emmys Don’t Matter

The Emmy’s have long been the strange, slightly gangly, socially awkward cousin in the award show family. They don’t really matter. They’re there. They’re at the table. They’re frequently seen around at family functions. But most people don’t like them. They’re certainly not the Oscars. The pride and joy of the family. The accomplished and good looking favorite child. They’re not even the Golden Globes, the stocky, slightly less accomplished […]

Ridley Scott Is Irrelevant

David Cronenberg’s New Short Film ‘The Nest’

David Cronenberg, the visionary director behind such films as Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly, has just released a new short film titled The Nest. The short film is a slightly more subjective take on the Body Horror genre that Cronenberg helped to create. The film is a slowly plodding 9:18. The film feels like a stripped back, streamlined entry into Cronenberg’s oeuvre. The Nest could almost be described too barebones or […]
