One-Eye on “Imagine 2017 Review: GET OUT” It's a pretty masterful debut from Jordan Peele. I admit I went into it with my arms folded, like: "I'm not gonna be lectured for two hours about what shit white people are then thank you for it." But the movie very quickly won me over when I realised that Peele is much smarter than that, and that it's possible to have a point of view without it being a polemic. 27 minutes ago
Claudia König on “10 Indonesian Horror FIlms From The Last Decade You Need To Watch!” Great list ;) I'll definitely go through it! I just got recently interested with Indonesian Horror Movies on the filmset of Jose Poernomos latest film. Reminds me that I still have to watch Jelangkung! Inspired me even to write some article on this topic: Check it out: 38 minutes ago
Ard Vijn on “Pretty Packaging: An Uncensored EVIL DEAD Has Finally Arrived In Germany” To see EVIL DEAD stuck in a VHS sleeve is just so... so... so RIGHT!!! 9 hours ago
Kuuzo on “Destroy All Monsters: IRON FIST Doesn't Just Suck, It Sucks the Rest of the Marvel Television Universe Down With It” Probably done by a ton of people who never saw the show but piled on because of false claims of whitewashing. The source material was not changed one bit in order to add white characters or convert non-white characters to white. Hence, no whitewashing, hence, people are idiots desperate to signal their virtue when they think they can get credit for being a stellar social justice warrior. 14 hours ago
Kuuzo on “Destroy All Monsters: IRON FIST Doesn't Just Suck, It Sucks the Rest of the Marvel Television Universe Down With It” You can request that Daredevil be played by an Iranian or the hulk played by a Mexican, but when it doesn't happen, you can not claim whitewashing. This is the exact same situation. So we can in fact easily ignore "claims of whitewashing" because they are false. The only thing the producers are guilty of is not fulfilling a request to change a character to a different race for no specific reason. 15 hours ago
Kuuzo on “Destroy All Monsters: IRON FIST Doesn't Just Suck, It Sucks the Rest of the Marvel Television Universe Down With It” Iron Fist is pretty good. Someone cried "whitewashing", and the whole world piled on. It's like someone saying "Make the hulk Mexian!" There is nothing wrong with the request, but when they don't do it, don't claim whitewashing. It is the same thing, and it is stupid. Jessica Jones was far more boring of a show anyway. 15 hours ago
Unflinching_Eye on “Pretty Packaging: An Uncensored EVIL DEAD Has Finally Arrived In Germany” That is tasty, much nicer than the ultimate edition which is, let's face it, a bit OTT. 16 hours ago
Peter Martin on “70s Rewind: ZARDOZ, Much More Than Sean Connery Running Around in a Loincloth” What surprises me is how much it's grown on me over the just the past week! I only watched it twice more so I could hear the audio commentaries before completing this article, and I realized what I was actually missing out on. 1 day ago
Peter Martin on “70s Rewind: ZARDOZ, Much More Than Sean Connery Running Around in a Loincloth” You mean the one of Zed tumbling down! Reportedly, that was really Sean Connery doing his own stunt! Remarkable. I'd seen a cut version of DELIVERANCE on television, but seeing EXCALIBUR (on a double-bill with THE HOWLING in 1981 in a dollar theater!) really opened my eyes. Watching ZARDOZ has reminded me of all his work that I haven't seen yet. 1 day ago
Peter Martin on “70s Rewind: ZARDOZ, Much More Than Sean Connery Running Around in a Loincloth” You're quite welcome! Yes, watching it again, and then again with John Boorman's commentary really helped me appreciate what I was watching. Then I watched it yet again with the audio commentary w/3 film historians, which rounded it out for me. It really is quite enjoyable; in my case, I had to reset my expectations and appreciate it more from the philosophical and speculative viewpoints. 1 day ago
complicit on “70s Rewind: ZARDOZ, Much More Than Sean Connery Running Around in a Loincloth” I had only seen this film once, decades ago in college, and I remembered it being quirky if a little boring. Having revisited the Twilight Time release recently, expecting to be at most bemused, I was surprised at how enjoyable I found it. You've now inspired me to listen to the commentary track for additional insight. Thank you. 1 day ago
ManateeAdvocate on “PILGRIMAGE: Tom Holland And Jon Bernthal Spread Faith And Spill Blood in First Trailer” Oooo. My kind of film. Looks excellent. Bernthal is a BEAST of an actor in my book. 2 days ago
ManateeAdvocate on “THE BEGUILED Trailer Offers Stylish Blood And Sex In A Boarding School For Girls” Love her films. Looking forward to this iteration. Yes, the trailer is spoiler-y, then again, many trailers are nowadays. 2 days ago
rustdog on “70s Rewind: ZARDOZ, Much More Than Sean Connery Running Around in a Loincloth” Boorman is a director I have loved since I first saw Emerald Forest as a child. My father was a huge Boorman fan and our vhs copy of Excalibur was playing often. I didn't see Zardoz until much later in life. For all its flaws you have to respect the cinematography. There's a shot of Zed jumping down a river bank that has always stuck with me. 2 days ago
Merzmensch on “Production I.G Announces New GHOST IN THE SHELL Anime” I just hope, this won't be another "Arise" disaster. Because besides of "Arise" all other Animes and Series were grandious. And I hope, Mamoru Oshii comes back. 2 days ago

Finnfangfoom on “Clip from THE ENDLESS: What's in the Box?” No, thank YOU very much, for sharing your talent, so that we, the undeserving public, can enjoy your work. I know we all bitch and moan about a lot of the films we love to consume, but without you guys we'd all be bored and miserable. 2 days ago
Theodore Wirth on “Review: FREE FIRE, Bullet-riddled Mayhem From Beginning to End” Wheatley is insane. I am specifically talking about A FIELD IN ENGLAND and HIGH-RISE. Plus, I will watch any film starring Cillian Murphy. I cannot wait. 2 days ago
Justin Benson on “Clip from THE ENDLESS: What's in the Box?” Well thank you very much. Very cool. And we're aiming for the small target of gem #3. 2 days ago
ManateeAdvocate on “Review: FREE FIRE, Bullet-riddled Mayhem From Beginning to End” I'm so glad people are having fun with this flick. It looks like a stupendous good romp. Sharlto Copley made Hardcore Henry all the more hilarious. 2 days ago
