Friday Film Fan: Movies You May Have Missed 010 – Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s ‘Mother Night’

Adapting a Vonnegut novel for the big screen is an ambitious undertaking. Mother Night examines Nazi Germany through a radio broadcaster’s life while twisting our brains up by messing with time. Interesting premise, fantastic production design, and a phenomenal cast, it’s a shame more people haven’t seen it…

Friday Fun: What if ‘Man of Steel’ Was in Color?

This video does an excellent job of nailing one of the technical criticisms I had with Man of Steel, and something which I feel will continue to be an issue with Batman v Superman. It would seem that DC learned the wrong lesson from Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. That because the Dark Knight franchise was successful, and they were dark and gritty with muted color, then ALL superhero films should be dark and gritty with muted color.

Should You Run From ‘It Follows’? – A Movie We Hope You Don’t Miss!

I loves me a good scary movie! Producer Marie and I went to a late showing of indie sweetheart ‘It Follows’, and I had to share my thoughts as soon as I got home. It’s an indie horror sweetheart, but does it live up to the hype? Let’s chat about some spooooooooky things…

Sunday Silly: The Original 1994 ‘Fantastic Four’ Film is on Youtube

This last week we got a first look at the reboot for Fantastic Four, and it looks like it will be a darker departure from the first two films.

But did you know the “first” two FF films really weren’t the first?

Back in 1994 a film was produced, shot, and edited, but was never intended to be released. It was made solely for the studio to retain the rights, no small chunk of change considering the estimated budget of $1.5 million. We’re treated to some glorious, schlocky, low-budget film making from none other than Roger Corman.

Never intended for the light of day, but you can watch it on the Youtubes. Enjoy!
