You know those evenings when only one film is on in the theatre for you to see at the time you arrive? And even though the warning sirens are screaming in your head you go see it nonetheless? That happened to me last night, after I had just finished seeing "Wreck it Ralph". And like a lamb limping into the slaughterhouse I stumbled into my seat to watch the newest Die Hard…
Happy Halloween! Gather your gumballs and join us for another episode of Chick Flick Shuffle! We're in our white van, pulling up in your driveway, and you better believe we have candy! McFisticuffs isn't in the Van with us because he's make six figures at his new job, but that's ok because this Halloween we all went as…
I miss the old action films. The two-hour epics that suck you in and makes you believe in the hero. John McClane was a New York cop on the verge of divorce, but has to save his wife along with other hostages in Nakatomi Tower, in Die Hard (1988). Snake Plissken had to save the president from…
The Die Hard franchise was lucky to have two great action villains in their first and third films. Both Hans and Simon Gruber were cunning and evil while still having great moments of humor, too. The script for the fifth Die Hard film, tentatively titled "Die Hard 24/7", has just been handed…
The music video for Gorillaz's new single 'Stylo' (feat. MOS DEF & BOBBY WOMACK), from the upcoming album Plastic Beach, debuted today, featuring 2-D, Murdoc and (Android) Noodle on the run from everyone's favorite bald headed action star Bruce Willis in a desert car chase. Simply awesome.

Prof. IronMan is here to give you yet another look in the fantastic world of cinema in Cutting Into the Scene.
This session will be a bit special as it will be divided in 2 parts. I have always been a fan of Asian cinema ever since I saw my first Anime so many years ago. As I got older, I discovered a whole new realm beyond those given out by Hollywood... Asia. It was filled with intense history and culture so different to the one I… Continue
I don't know about you but I've never seen a Steven Seagal movie I didn't like (except Executive Decision w/Kurt Russell. It wasn't right that Seagal died in that film). I mean every film I've seen of him (The Patriot, Pistol Whipped, Hard to Kill) I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I think I've got most of his movies on DVD though some of them may have eluded me coz' he releases so many direct to DVD sometims I go into the DVD bin and I'm pleasantly surprised with a new one. I'm just wondering why he… Continue
There is nothing else I can say. The Beatles. If you don't know who they are, either you are 3 years old or you've been living under a rock for over 50 years. John, Paul, George and Ringo have played an important role in many people's lives, giving us a body of work that can never be equaled. During the decade they were together, The Beatles made 5 films together. The first one has often been called one of the greatest… Continue

Professor Ironman is back for another in-depth look into Cinema!
This one is gonna be a big one (as in long so be up for a good read!) ... and one I feel the most personal about. This will just be one big comparison to 2 of my favourite films of all time and discovering that they are both very much similar... to the point that it begins to question whether Hollywood has has ever truly evolved in terms of cinematic storytelling.
Okay, so maybe action movies aren't the toast of the town these days. But I got to talk about one in particular after seeing it and Transporter 3 back to back. Now don't get me wrong, I like all three of the Transporter movies: they're fast, dumb, and action-packed; what more do you want? Yet these films, and many other quick action movies, still could not hold a candle to the intensity that was seen in "Heroic Bloodshed" movies.
