With the news that Arnie’s Terminator just won’t die, we’re looking at our DVD collection to see which of our favourite movies we just want gosh darned left alone. There aren’t many left now; Star Wars is lost, Die Hard’s been beaten into the ground… there are even rumours of a Roger Rabbit sequel in the works, because apparently just nothing is sacred. So here are the top 10 sequels we hope never happen.
Tell you what, we’ve only got a new bloody writer! The glorious Janina Matthewson can be found across the Internet writing for everyone from NASA (that might be a lie) to our little-sister site Work in Prowess, and she’s finally scaled the walls of Best For Film Towers to shower us with opinions and that. Ever wanted help justifying your refusal to watch anything but Labyrinth, over and over again? Welcome home.
Steve Buscemi hasn’t had a major role in a big Hollywood film for a while, having been busy running the illegal liquor trade in 1920s Atlantic City on television’s Boardwalk Empire. He is, however, providing his distinctive vocals to this week’s release, Hotel Transylvania, voicing Wayne the werewolf. In light of this, what better time to remind everyone how great the world’s favourite Reservoir Dog is?
Tired of going to a bland old West End cinema, paying £8 for a popcorn combo and crying salty tears all the way through the latest piece of superhero big budget low quality rubbish, lamenting the state of exhibition practices these days? Do you long for the days of all nighters, of midnight movies, of dirty dive bars that stick a blanket to the wall as a makeshift screen? Well, you’re not the only one, as we pay tribute to the groups that are bringing movies out of the cinema, and re-igniting our love for the big screen.
If the film world were to go blind tomorrow, and we had to choose but one team to lead the rest out of darkness, we would happily slip a lead around the necks of Joel and Ethan Coen and follow them wherever they took us. These men are incapable of putting a foot wrong. With A Serious Man the brothers have come up with yet another modern day masterpiece.
