Ruthless People

I wasn’t old enough to beat the 18 certificate back in 1986, and it’s been a long, long wait for me to finally catch up on Ruthless People, 35 years to be exact. Directed by the Airplane team of David Zucker, Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams, and written by Dale Launer, it’s never been remade […]

Here’s some random waffle from your friendly movie blog host Mikey Wolfman and a review, of sorts, for Rebel Without a Cause. I do hope you are sitting down, not because the length of the upcoming ramblings but for the shock horror factor that this here “movie fan” had never seen it! Insert blood curdling […]

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2022) Preview with first teaser trailer

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) Yep, that’s the fantastically inspired title! And the first teaser trailer has appeared. Is anyone interested beyond the fan boys who will lap up anything they are given? This really does seem like money-grubbing. But we may be pleasantly surprised. After all, the 2018 Halloween reboot was ok with caveats. Pity […]

The news doesn’t stop, no matter what’s going on behind the scenes. You either keep up or get left behind. In this case, however, it’s not so much about keeping up. It’s about recapping a terrible, terrible year. Well, enough of the events contained within it. Time will tell if these storyline approaches will […]

Del Toro remakes a dark classic,”Nightmare Alley”

Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro’s take on “Nightmare Alley,” a noirish carny novel first adapted for a Tyrone Power film in 1947, is a pitiless vision of an underworld of grifters and tent-show hustlers. Stunningly-detailed, with an A-list cast up and down the line, it’s a gorgeous and gloomy dip into the dark side, immersive […]

Romeo Is Bleeding

Peter Medak’s blistering neo-noir was not what I was looking for when I saw it on a late-night cinema screening at my local flea-pit back in 1993; it might have been tough and violent, but the story was also the absolute opposite of what I was hoping to see as a young man. Rather than […]

Out of the Blue

Dennis Hopper’s 1980 film, released by the BFI for this special, restored two-disc reissue, is a genuine one-off; a dark family drama that few have seen, and there’s a reason for that. This is the darkest of films, as befits Hopper’s reputation as a provocateur; he boarded this project and retooled it as a follow-up […]

The French Dispatch (2021), A Love-Letter to Journalism

One common recurrence you see on Twitter is people being shocked to learn that Wes Anderson was born and raised in Houston, Texas. This, no doubt, is because of the very European aesthetic that he conjures in his films, while this has certainly become more pronounced with his more recent films like The Grand Budapest […]
