A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

The role that film plays in society and the impact it has had on wider popular culture over the last century or so is almost possible to overstate. A rather telling example of this comes in the form of a study done by VisitBritain, which estimates that in 2001, approximately 20% of the 23 million visitors to the UK did so simply because of the way the country has been portrayed on television and film. If this isn’t enough to convince you of the indelible impact that the film industry has on our lives then you need to look no further than the rise in collection of movie memorabilia over the last 25 years or so.

American Made Features Tom Cruise’s Best Role in Years (Review)

American Made Features Tom Cruise’s Best Role in Years (Review)

Since the late 2000s, Hollywood has been obsessed with movies that deal with the drug cartel. I personally think the genre is beginning to feel over saturated, with a new movie on the subject matter coming out almost every year and of course Netflix’s hit show, Narcos. When I first saw the trailer for American Made, I thought “Oh great, here’s another movie about Pablo Escobar and the Mexican Drug Cartel.” Well after seeing it for myself, I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised. Tom Cruise is in top form with his role as Barry Seal in this entertaining true story. Read more

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a Summer Blockbuster in September (Review)

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a Summer Blockbuster in September (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to seeing Kingsman: The Golden Circle since I first saw the trailer for it.   Could it live up to the first Kingsman? Hard to say, but Channing Tatum as a cowboy is reason enough to get me to see anything.  The very idea leaves me a little out breath.  Kingsman: TGC knew exactly what it wanted to be; it has a formula and that formula was followed.  And to good effect:  even at an 2 hours, 21 minutes, Kingsman: TGC did not feel too long.

Stronger: Jake Gyllenhaal is Oscar Worthy in This Inspiring Biopic (Review)

Stronger: Jake Gyllenhaal is Oscar Worthy in This Inspiring Biopic (Review)

Didn’t we already have a movie about the Boston Bombing? Patriots Day came out in 2016 and it told the story of how the police tracked down the bombers following the devastating event. Patriots Day was undeniably great. Stronger is a completely different movie; It doesn’t focus on the bombing itself, instead on Jeff Bauman, one of the survivors from the explosion near the finish line who later became a symbol of hope for Boston. This is a more personal story, and I have to say it is a very human film and one of the better movies of 2017.  Read more

Denis Villeneuve Directing the Next James Bond Movie? Daniel Craig Wants Him

Denis Villeneuve Directing the Next James Bond Movie? Daniel Craig Wants Him

There are two directors that I’m DYING to see direct a James Bond movie: Christopher Nolan and Denis Villeneuve. I know it is a long shot to have either of these A-List filmmakers helm a Bond thriller, but The Playlist reported this morning that Daniel Craig wants Denis Villeneuve. The thought of this literally gives me chills, but how likely is it to happen? Read more

Linda Hamilton is Returning to the Terminator Franchise

Linda Hamilton is Returning to the Terminator Franchise

Does anyone honestly still care heavily about the Terminator franchise anymore? The last few entries in the franchise have been a mess and completely contradicted each other (Yes, I’m looking at you Salvation and Genisys). After 25 years, the powerhouse actress Linda Hamilton is reportedly returning to the franchise. First reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Hamilton is apparently re-teaming with director James Cameron on the 7th entry in the Sci-Fi franchise. Cameron of course directed the original classics, Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton was the other fan-favorite in the first two films with her performances as Sarah Connor. That being said, it could be interesting to see James Cameron and Linda Hamilton work together again. There’s only one problem: Does anyone truly care anymore? Has the Terminator franchise had its time? Read more
