Grease up those chariot wheels, boys and girls, because we're getting a'Ben-Hur' remake...sort of. MGM, the studio that has already slated for remake somewhere in the neighborhood of XXVI of its catalog titles, has begun planning a new…
Just when you thought you'd escaped the deadliest case of cabin fever ever immortalized on film, we may have to pack our backs for a return trip to the Overlook Hotel. Warner Brothers is looking at the possibility of producing a prequel to 1980's …
Hey guys, Milkman26789Z here. Alright, so, we all love Charlie Brown. Created by cartoonist Charles M. Shultz in 1950, Charlie Brown has left a wide legacy on the world of animation as he's still known to this very day. Originally a comic strip, Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang had many misadventures that delighted people as they read the newspaper. Their adventure consisted on 4 to 6 panel gags that were simple yet genius ideas. So, they soon found their way to television, first off in…
The Robin Hood story meeting Bonnie & Clyde meeting The Fugitive meeting classic '70s sci-fi noir is a lot better than how it sounds. This movie is actually better than some people are saying because the script and story is solid and it has a lot of really good ideas. The problem with this film is the directing and the editing because it's longer than it should be and the pacing isn't awful but it definitely could've picked it up in order to keep the suspense going for…
We'll be taking it easy on you guys this week with what I like to call a diet-sized episode. One of the crew's favorite things to do is just shooting the breeze about old cartoons. We love the nostalgia. What can we say? Anyway, we dip into that well again by recounting some of the comics cartoons that came out prior to the 2000s. We omitted the Bruce Timm shows this time so that we can save them up for an episode of its own. Even still, there…Continue

One of the best of the film noir genre. Double Indemnity is a brilliant thrill ride of murder, lust, lies, suspicion, and betrayal. It's a great movie, a great piece by Billy Wilder. The best thing about it is that it keeps you guessing, guessing about how it end and who will it end with? Fred MacMurray is great as the smooth talking but wide eyed insurance man and Barbara Stanwyck is one of the best femme fatale's to ever grace the silver screen. Perhaps what really gets you into it is that… Continue
Yet another cult classic has been plucked from the cinematic ether to be reincarnated for modern audiences. 'Logan's Run' - a remake of the 1967 sci-fi novel about a dystopian culture that maintains population control by scheduled executions at a certain age - is being slated for production by… Continue

The project is animated by veteran Walt Disney Animation Studios animator, Robb Pratt and the Man Of Steel was voiced by actor John Haymes Newton, best known for playing Superboy in the first season of the Salkind produced 1988-1992 Superboy TV series (Newton was…
Well, it took a great deal of sweat (digital), blood (metaphorical) and tears (....no comment), but your requests, numerous lists, and a bit of my own preferences have finally finished one year-long, 420-film calendar of classic cinema for 2011!
(Noise of rousing standing ovation can be heard)...No, please...thank you, thank you very much...
For the longest time, Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent film Metropolis has been hailed as a landmark in dystopian science-fiction. However, outside of its original debut in Germany, few have seen the original cut of the film, owing to the fact that the film…
While I was waiting in line to see Paranormal Activity last Friday, I was invited to an early screening of a 're-imagining of a classic horror film'. Today, I took my invitation and went across town to get to the early screening. I didn't know what the hell they were going to be showing us. Many were hoping it would be… Continue
What type of Horror movie do you refuse to watch? Be it because of the director, actors, or type.
I refuse to watch 'Evil Kid' movies. I am referring to the recent ones: The Uninvited, The Unborn, The Orphan, etc. I especially don't watch if for some reason the evil kid doesn't have any super natural powers or is not a trained killer. If they were a spoof, comedy, or a classic (instant or…Continue
I was listening to the 8-5-09 Let's do it, and was surprised to hear them discuss the same thing my co-workers and I were complaining about just two weeks ago. Most of us on this site own way to many flicks, They're piled under our TV's, next to our beds, hell most of us have half a dozen unopened DVD's sitting next to you right now. My question is with movies like G.I.Joe being successful despite its obvious stupidity, What makes a great movie? Obviously this is something that can be argued… Continue

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 50%
My rating: Full Price!!
I should probably start out by stating that this was a film thrust on me by my father at an early age and was replayed nearly every year until I was fourteen, when I naturally stopped hanging around with them. This sort of aeroliminal display makes for heartfelt classics which may bring with it bias. For this I apologise in… Continue

I don't know about you but I've always felt like the 50's where the best years for sci-fi. All the best cliche came out of 1950's sci-fi movies, from alien invasion movies, colliding planets, mad scientist, even giant monster (ok maybe not giant monster) and bugs came from the 50's. So with all this in mind here's my 10 favorite science fiction movies from 1950 to 1959, I'll also tell you my thoughts on the movies with remakes either coming or already made. So here is my top 10 favorite 1950's… Continue
