Andrew Mack on “Frontières@Fantasia 2017: We Saw Footage From HOUSEWIFE, KNUCKLEBALL, THE LODGERS, TRENCH 11 And UNTOLD HORROR In The Buyer's Showcase” The Lodgers tbh. Sucker for period gothic pieces and the water effects were really good. I think that one may have some genuine scares in it. 5 hours ago
God of Joy on “10+ Years Later: Is David Lynch's DUNE Really So Awful?” Dune will always have a special place in my heart as this was my entry into Lynch. I was 13. I remember at the theatre where I saw it with my father, they had two sided glossary sheets that summed up the major characters, locations, terms used in the film. I ate up every second. Immediately went out and bought the soundtrack by Toto afterword, and then read the Frank Herbert book. I still have a copy of Ed Naha's book "The Making of Dune" that spoke about the production in more or less positive terms. The thing about the film that I always come back to is the score, the amazing production design (sets and costumes), those mentat eyebrows, and the delightful Lynchian weirdness. How can it be said that Lynch's fingerprints are not all over this? Mentat eyebrows, dream visions, diseased mechanical planet inhabitants with fake tulips sprayed by blood of machine oil, red headed dwarves excavating cow corpses, the appearance of the guild navigator, Baron's doctor stating "You are so beautiful, my Baron. Your skin, love to me. Your diseases lovingly cared for, for all eternity." as he lances boils. Not a perfect film to be sure, but still a personal favorite, flaws and all. 1 day ago
God of Joy on “10+ Years Later: Is David Lynch's DUNE Really So Awful?” and Brad Dourif, pitch perfect Dourif. 1 day ago
ClarkNova4 on “10+ Years Later: Is David Lynch's DUNE Really So Awful?” From a bookworms POV the film may be flawed but for a cinephile this movie is simply an awe inspiring art house version of a religious film dressed up as scifi. Just everything in it is atmospheric and beautiful. 1 day ago
Unflinching_Eye on “Kitamura's DOWNRANGE on Its Way to Thrill in 2018” I've been thinking about VERSUS a bit recently. Haven't seen it in at least 15 years, and I wonder how I'd feel about it now. 2 days ago
ToryK on “BRIGHT Trailer: Netflix's $100 Million Blockbuster Shines” Oh, HELL yes. This just jumped to the top of my list. "Fun" is a boring description, but it's really the best one for what I'm looking at here. 2 days ago
Michael Lang on “BRIGHT Trailer: Netflix's $100 Million Blockbuster Shines” Looks fun. It is ALIEN NATION though w/magic. 2 days ago
ManateeAdvocate on “BRIGHT Trailer: Netflix's $100 Million Blockbuster Shines” Looks pretty wild. And yes, I agree that it's very odd that Rapace isn't in the marketing text. 2 days ago

Sarah Alburger on “TATARA SAMURAI: Japanese Epic Coming to U.S. Cinemas on June 2nd” I wish this would get a wider release, we want this in Philly! Absolutely love Akira, he's a fantastic actor... hope he does more films with U.S. releases! 2 days ago
Darren Murray on “New York Asian 2017 Interview: Legend Eric Tsang on Giving Back and Revitalising Hong Kong Cinema” Glad to see Tsang getting some recognition. Guy is always terrific no matter what film. 2 days ago
wabalicious on “New York Asian 2017 Interview: Legend Eric Tsang on Giving Back and Revitalising Hong Kong Cinema” Great actor. For me it was as Sam in Infernal Affairs that i first noticed him, but later when i was re-watching some older HK films i realised that i'd seen him in a few films previously. He's fantastic, he can swing from warmth and comedy to absolute brutality in a split second. 2 days ago
Zetobelt on “10+ Years Later: Is David Lynch's DUNE Really So Awful?” And Sting's participation reminds me of Bowie's participation in FWWM. 2 days ago
Christopher Webster on “PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Teaser Assembles the Jaegers” I still believe that's considered soft. The Great Wall for example sits at nearly 290,000,000 int. and I don't think we'll see a sequel. Same goes for Warcract. I would be surprises if we see a sequel despite China's massive numbers. 2 days ago
wabalicious on “Warner Bros. Ready to Remake INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (Again)” Ha, i was just talking to a friend about that the other day, i couldn't remember what it was in until he reminded me it was in South Park. Honestly, i don't think that joke was that wide of the mark! 2 days ago
Zetobelt on “10+ Years Later: Is David Lynch's DUNE Really So Awful?” It isn't Citizen Kane but I have fond memories from it. 2 days ago
