Wrestling Movies: The Citizen Kane of Cinema

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

“We make movies” says World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon in the 1999 wrestling documentary, Beyond the Mat.

The WWE didn’t actually make movies then, they only made wrestling. That fact, combined with Vince’s trademark “I am a crazy man” delivery, prompted lots of chuckles at the screening but he had a point.

There are many parallels between professional wrestling and cinema. I’ve been wrestling for 15 horrendously painful years now and it continues to astound me when people who love the fiction of cinema are unable to reconcile that same love with the fiction of wrestling.

Inside a dream: Twin Peaks remains wonderful and strange

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

“It’s a dream. We live inside a dream.”
– Agent Philip Jeffries, Fire Walk With Me

I’m one of those guys who had Twin Peaks parties back in the 90s. We didn’t dress up as Agent Cooper or Audrey Horne, or carry logs around, or wrap ourselves in plastic, however many, many pies were consumed, along with massive amounts of coffee and donuts. Lots of donuts.

So. Many. Donuts.

For someone like me, the new Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-Ray box set is a dream come true. Every episode of the series, the original and international versions of the […]

Dark, extreme places: An Interview with John Doe Vigilante star, Jamie Bamber

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

Is vengeance ever justice? Is taking the law into one’s own hands for the apparent betterment of society ever acceptable? Can two wrongs ever make a right? These are among the philosophical questions asked in John Doe: Vigilante, the new Australian film by director Kelly Dolen. In the tradition of Michael Winner’s Death Wish, Neil Jordan’s The Brave One, and TVs Dexter, the film features a confessed vigilante killer who offs the crims who haunt our streets. In this film, the vigilante spends much of his time attempting to explain and justify his actions to authorities, […]

Jack Deth is BACK… (again): Trancers is still worth a look

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

You can’t find a review of Trancers that doesn’t write it off as an amalgam of Blade Runner and Terminator. And to whoever first made that comparison, thank you SO much for taking the broader view. Because nothing ever in the History of Things has ever taken inspiration from anything else. Just ask James Cameron.

Tim Thomerson is Jack Deth, a police detective from the 23rd century who goes back in time to 1985 when everyone under the age of 30 had a six-inch blue Mohawk and wore leather pants with a day-glo orange life preserver vest. Deth is […]

Goodbye, Marilyn Burns

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

“I was acting but I sure gave it all I felt at the moment. I didn’t need to sink way down deep inside me to give that ending performance.” — Marilyn Burns, Terror Trap

I had planned to next watch The Texas Chain Saw Massacre with a group of friends later this year, in celebration of its 40th anniversary. Not to commemorate the death of one of its stars. Yet here we are.

“Marilyn Burns, star of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Dead at 64,” my Facebook feed informed me this morning, with the picture of her under the […]

Astron-6 (Fathers Day and Manborg) have released the teaser clip for their upcoming homage to giallo, The Editor. We ran an interview with them a few months back about the production you can check out below! The Editor will premiere at TIFF.

“A one-time (and now one-handed) master film editor toiling in the cinematic sweatshops of 1970s Italy becomes the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders, in this loving tribute to/parody of the gory giallo thrillers of Mario Bava and Dario Argento”
