Heartbreak Ridge

I watched this one over a month ago but forgot to include it here. It’s good in the way that army training movies tend to be (it’s an easy conceit to build something around), and it doesn’t break any new grounds or anything, and other movies have done it better (ahem, Full Metal Jacket), but I still enjoyed it. Some of the homophobic language used is hard to take now — and in fact it’s something that you often come across as you watch a lot of moveis from that era — but you have to imagine also...

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Set Photo Shows Off a Familiar Ride

Yesterday, we learned that the official title for Jurassic World 2 is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Now a set photo has surfaced that shows off a vehicle that should look very familiar to any fans of Steven Spielberg’s 1993 movie that kicked off this franchise. Take a look at the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom set photo below. ScreenRant points us to a Facebook page called the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, which reportedly received this image from an anonymous source on the set of the sequel: ...

Are Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Planning Wedding and a Baby?

While sisters, Kourtney and Kim have become mothers and brother, Rob, has welcomed a daughter, Khloe hasn’t yet taken that step. Whether it’s a personal choice or simply bad luck due to her failed marriage to Lamar Odom, she has no little mini-mes to dress up alongside her siblings on Halloween. Current rumors suggest, though, that things could be changing very soon. Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images According to reports, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been talking about “bot...

Remembering Prisoners of Gravity, the greatest science fiction TV show of all time

From 1989 to 1994, the public broadcaster TV Ontario ran Prisoners of Gravity, a brilliant science fiction TV show that used a goofy framing device (a host trapped in a satellite who interviewed science fiction writers stuck down on Earth) for deep, gnarly, fascinating dives into science fiction's greatest and most fascinating themes, from sex and overpopulation to cyberpunk and religion.

The Lego Batman Movie

I thought this was pretty fun. I definitely laughed a bunch of times, and just like the Lego Movie, it’s neat to see all of these Lego constructs in action — and it’s interesting that instead of doing smooth animation, they again used CG and made it feel more like a stop-motion animated film. I liked Batman in the original Lego Movie, and although I wasn’t especially excited about seeing another Lego movie just about him, I gotta say that I ended up having a good time watching it.

I think I sorta remember hearing about this movie back then, but I don’t think I had watched it, and it wasn’t something I was planning on watching during my 1986 movie marathon, but it got suggested by a friend of mine, and I’m glad I followed his recommendation. Look, this is not a good movie, but more importantly, it’s a joyful expression of what the 80s were like, and for that alone it’s worth watching. Cheesy scene after cheesy scene, it all feels so innocent, in a way that you just don’t ...

The Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Monsters – review

Director: Peter Balakoff (segment) Release date: 1965 Contains spoilers Expectation can do a lot, I guess. I think I expected the little rascals or maybe the Bowery Boys. It certainly wasn’t the former and probably had more in common with the latter (there are young kids occasionally but the primary focus is on grown adults acting like kids) but this made the Bowery Boys seem like high art. the mummy It is actually three shorts stitched together. The first short "The Lemon Grove Kids...

Juste like The Name of the Rose, this is another movie from 1986 that has aged very well. It always gets unfairly compared to The Silence of the Lambs (or later Red Dragon, from which it is an actual adaptation of), and Silence certainly is a classic in its own right, but this is great too. Brian Cox plays a fantastic Lecter, and Michael Mann is already showing what a great director he is (and would continue to be). Some of the soundtrack hasn’t aged so well maybe, but I still quite enjoyed re-...
