It’s always been easy to overlook the contributions of stunt performers. While CGI has diluted the need for flesh and blood daredevils, the real thing is still valued. Especially for an old school action extravaganza like The Expendables 2. So it’s unfortunate that one of Hollywood’s movie soldiers paid the ultimate price.
Yesterday, one stuntman was killed and another injured during an explosion on the Bulgarian set of the big-budget sequel. Their names have not been released, although studio Nu Image/Millennium Films did issue a statement: Continue reading
Production is starting to heat up on Bruce Willis’ fifth outing as fascistic super cop John McClane. The reveal of the title, A Good Day to Die Hard, was subject to no end of mockery. But I like it… almost sounds final, in a way. Could this be McClane’s last stand?
With that possibility in mind, it’s interesting to note the names 20th Century Fox are discussing to play his son. Could they be preparing for a series without its star? The current list is pretty phenomenal: Ben Foster, Paul Dano and Aaron Paul. Continue reading
It pains me to do this as I’m a huge fan of “classic period” Stevie, and it can’t be denied that this album does indeed contain a substantial portion of his all-time finest material. Unfortunately neither of these things can change the fact that there’s an awful lot of shit on here as well. Boring, boring shit. And it really kind of ruins the whole thing. This so easily could have been one of the greatest albums of all time, in fact when you consider just how many astoundingly great songs there are on here (and there are plenty), you realise that it’s actually quite an achievement that he’s managed to make it all such a chore to listen to.

It goes without saying that we love Alien around here. If there’s a better melding of sci-fi and horror, please write to us on a postcard and let us know. Because I wouldn’t want your lack of taste to corrupt my e-mails.
I’ve seen Alien on the big screen before, in an original 70s print no less. It was so old that it still had the “X” rating on the front. And while it wasn’t in tip-top shape, the majesty of Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic still shone through. Continue reading
The entire Star Wars saga is finally out on Blu-Ray. Instead of a lengthy film-by-film analysis, lets cut to the chase and revisit the greatest entry in the successful series.
