Sat, 25 Feb 2017 10:12:54 -0600

Suspiria, the 1977 Italian horror movie directed by Dario Argento, has long been acclaimed as a "classic" by many horror fans.

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:39:31 -0600

I am a big fan of Italian giallo movies, and one of my all time favourites in this genre is The Bird With The Crystal Plumage (1970). The Bird With The Crystal Plumage - which was the first instalment in the Animal Trilogy, and was followed by The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971) and Four Flies on Grey Velvet (1972) - was also the first giallo movie that Dario Argento directed, on his way to making his own significant mark in this hugely popular category of filmmaking.

The House On Haunted Hill 1999 Review

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:38:11 -0600

Having always been a huge fan of the old 1959 Vincent Price movie, House On Haunted Hill, I must admit that initially I was a little cynical about how this 1999 remake would compare to the original film, knowing how disappointing many such reboots of classic horror flicks have proved to be. However, having now watched it on DVD, I have to say that this new take on the story turned out to be one of the pleasing exceptions. In fact, I thought it was a very good remake indeed.

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:38:08 -0600

If you harbour the guilty pleasure of gory cannibal movies where groups of jungle explorers get captured, stripped naked and subjected to all kinds of hideous mutilations and deaths by hordes of uncivilised, flesh-hungry savages, then I am sure you will enjoy Eli Roth's homage to the cannibal terror genre: The Green Inferno. After a six-year absence from the director's chair, Roth has really delivered here with this jungle shocker. His love for this aspect of the horror genre is so evident in every scene of The Green Inferno, and it's really great to see a director of...

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 09:36:10 -0600

With the advancement in technology, the mass media has soared up greatly in its programs. The television industry in Africa is now featuring numerous programs and airing series of films. Some of these films are very educative, offering the youth with requisite skills and knowledge to face the present and projected future challenges of life.

Impact of American Movies On Our Lives

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 09:31:44 -0600

Dario Argento's Dracula

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 08:04:47 -0600

Being a big fan of the Hammer Dracula films starring Christopher Lee (who, in my opinion, was the best Dracula ever), I always tend to view modern reboots of Stoker's famous vampire lord with a certain degree of cynicism. For me, all the Dracula films since Christopher Lee's have failed to recapture the magic and sheer entertainment value of the Hammer vampire, concentrating far too much on making the Count a sad, misunderstood, teen-appealing pinup boy rather than the traditionally terrifying, bloodsucking monster that we all come to expect.

Hollywood Needs A Late Night Comedy Show That Trashes Left-Leaning Politics

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 16:19:59 -0600

Have you ever watched late night comedy shows and thought to yourself that the constant bombardment of Republicans, Tea Party Folks, and Donald Trump just was not funny anymore? Yep, me too, and as a right-leaning libertarian, I just think it is persnickety, victimhood, progressive poop. What's even more interesting is that all these shows are essentially the same, and they all compete against one-another, while all the right-leaning folks tune out. From a marketing and branding standpoint that just makes no sense, but their ideological slant doesn't allow them to seek viewers outside this "hate speech" neo-liberal bubble - no wonder they cannot believe they lost the election - they lived in their own living room echo chamber.

Classic Sitcom Characters Chosen To Appear In Fictional TV Commercials

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:19:23 -0500

Commercials have always been a necessary nuisance throughout the history of television, since those ads serve as the primary source of revenue for the shows people love to watch. While most of them are forgettable or even regrettable, some spots have actually become as memorable as the shows themselves.

Confessions of a Binge Watcher

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 07:32:38 -0500

New Version Of Game Show Is A Match For the Classic Of Yesteryear

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 15:01:04 -0500

More often than not, attempts to revive new versions of bygone TV shows do not fare so well. A recent exception of course would be "Hawaii Five-0", which has been successfully re-created by the CBS network. Part of the reason that series works in its new incarnation is the fact that it is a drama, a genre which has been traditionally more successful than remakes of other shows.

A Different Image

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 13:17:28 -0500

Recently I have re-visited a number of old movies I saw as a child, movies that I thought were wonderful when I first saw them. While some of them are still exciting to watch, others are not. As a young lad I didn't know how movies were made, so I didn't give things much thought.

The Science Fiction Movies That Have That Real Sense Of Classic Science Fiction

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 06:19:13 -0500

Sure, Star Wars and Star Trek movies are two of the greatest science fiction classics ever created, but they are based in futuristic realism and not 1950's mystical senses. The first appearance of "Star Trek" as T.V. episodes was great science fiction but the movies that came out in later years were set as futuristic realism out of the true classic science fiction sense. I enjoyed watching "Independence Day" but was excited for "Mars Attacks" which came out shortly after "Independence Day". I was baffled at why "Mars Attacks" wasn't released before "Independence Day" because I knew "Independence Day" was going to be a mega hit. I thought "Mars Attacks" was going to be a mega hit also but it puttered out after the release of "Independence Day". I guess maybe the "Mars Attacks" makers thought it would do just fine after "Independence Day" got everyone whooped up into a science fiction fever but that wasn't the case.
