Terminator Genisys (2015, Alan Taylor)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 28, 2015

Terminator Genisys is an inept attempt at turning the Terminator franchise into a young adult series à la The Hunger Games or Divergent or Twilight or Harry Potter. Only there’s no “literary” source material for Genisys, not even the original Terminator films. Because screenwriter read more

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Nov 28, 2015

Pierce Brosnan made a huge impact on the James Bond movie franchise even before he was cast as Bond. As I discussed in my blog posts concerning Timothy Dalton's time as 007 (from October 2012), Brosnan had originally been cast to take over as Bond from Roger Moore, but his contract to the REMINGTON read more

Lured (1947) ~ Spoiler Version

Classic Reel Girl Posted by BG Voita on Nov 28, 2015

It was killing me to dance around spoilers in my last post, but the film is a whodunit and respect is due to those who like figuring out the murderer on their own. If you have viewed the movie, don't give a snit about spoilers, or just like wild film theories, please read on.  By the way, read more

The Empire Strikes Back (1980, Irvin Kershner)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 28, 2015

The most amazing aspect of The Empire Strikes Back is its effortlessness. The film is clearly exceptionally complex–the three story lines have different sets, different actors, different tones, not to mention entirely different special effects requirements–not to mention Frank Oz’ read more

Introducing “Charlie’s Angels”: A Brief Rant

Margaret Perry Posted by Margaret Perry on Nov 27, 2015

I’m Sabrina, because she is the smart one. She is also the only one with any real clothes. It is true that the whole set up of the “Charlie’s Angels” show is a bit patronizing. The title itself suggests these women are Charlie’s personal Playboy bunnies. But th read more

I’m Declaring Today To Be A New Holiday – Blaxploitation Friday

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Nov 27, 2015

To say that I am not a fan of Black Friday could really be the definition of the word “understatement”. I’m not going to get into all the reasons for that here, because if you feel the same way I do, then you already understand most of them, and if you’re a huge fan of the da read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 27, 2015

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010, Samuel Bayer)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 27, 2015

Watching A Nightmare on Elm Street, I can’t believe remake director Bayer ever saw any of the original movies. Because he doesn’t even want to borrow the better techniques of those films. He instead goes with a thoughtless approach to the film. Specifically, the dream stuff. He doesn read more

The Sound of Music (1965, Robert Wise)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 27, 2015

So much of The Sound of Music is exquisite, the film’s got enough momentum to get over the rough spots. The film has three and a half distinct sections. There’s the first, introducing Julie Andrews to the audience, then introducing Christopher Plummer and family to the Andrews and the a read more
