What's It About? Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson star in this cool crime drama about a thief who's out for revenge on the dude who double-crossed him. Mel Gibson's "Payback" was based on the same novel, "The Hunter" by Donald E. Westlake, but that shouldn't deter you. »

As a general rule, I’m a big believer in cinema moving forward. It’s vital for an artform to constantly renew and reinvigorate itself, in order to remain interesting and avoid stagnation. That’s why bold and visionary filmmakers are so important. To date, the writer and director of Reach Me – John Herzfeld – has been neither of those things (2 Days In The Valley, anyone?), but the new trailer for his latest movie suggests a move in a new, more intriguing direction.
The film is about a large collection of characters and their respective connections to a self-help book – titled ‘Reach Me’ – written by a reclusive author, played by Tom Berenger. Now, here’s the thing – it would seem that while this film represents the all-important forward motion for helmer Herzfeld, it may also prove to be the opposite for many in its cast – and that’s just fine.

Larry Cohen’s 1985 film The Stuff my not be a classic, or even a horror classic come to that. But it is one of the best schlock horror releases that stands the test of time. I first came across this film after watching a few Troma films with my friends in my teens. While I loved the chaos and comedy of Lloyd Kaufman’s films they never really made much of an impression.
So when I saw a trailer for The Stuff I was prepared for much of the same. At the time I wasn’t aware of Larry Cohen’s body of work, though I’d watched Q the Winged Serpent without any knowledge of its filmmakers. Stuff takes its DNA from Q. A homage to the 1950s B-Movies. A real drive-in horror.
But underneath the ice cream and over the top special effects is a solid message. Okay »
Director: Larry Cohen
Running Time: 93 minutes
Ben & Jerry have strong competition as a luscious new dessert hits the stores and is taking supermarket shelves by storm. But just what does this mysterious goo, secretly oozing from the Earth, offer those munching on its sugary goodness?
Coming courtesy of cult horror auteur Larry Cohen, the legendary figure schooled in the low-budget Roger Corman form of quick filmmaking, The Stuff is one of those unique creature-features impossible not to like despite it’s cheap cheekiness. Inspired by the 1950s hits like The Blob and featuring an absurd premise taking an obvious pot shot at consumerism, corporate greed and environmental abuse, The Stuff is as intoxicating as its delicious product suggests because of the cast. Particularly Cohen regular Michael Moriarty as the swaggering industrial saboteur David “Mo” Rutherford. He’s »

In 1985, New York director Larry Cohen (It’s Alive, Full Moon High) took to the camera to bring us a cult classic called The Stuff, the story of a strange “goo” found coming from the Earth which is packaged up and sold as a delicious desert treat. The only problem is that when the customers of the product eat it they turn into flesh eating zombies.
The story is not dissimilar to another cult favourite of mine, Street Trash (J. Michael Muro, 1987), which dealt with a liquor that turned it’s drinkers to sludge, only in this case the people who, for lack of a less dirty sounding term, swallow the stuff, end up as zombies. It’s a wonderfully silly plot that works wonderfully with the rest of the film. »

Are you a fan of Larry Cohen’s subversively wacko 1985 killer yogurt flick The Stuff and have been dying for it to get a Blu-ray release? There’s good news for you, but only if you’re British or have a region-free Blu-ray player.
For our friends across the pond and the fiends here at home with region-free capabilities that can’t get enough of The Stuff, the one-of-a-kind deadly dessert social satire is bowing on Blu-ray March 10th courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.
The Stuff is the new dessert taking supermarket shelves by storm. It's delicious, low in calories, and – better still – doesn't stain the family carpet… What's not to like?! Well, for a »
Review Ryan Lambie 10 Feb 2014 - 06:10
One of the most oft-filmed cities on the planet, New York takes on a renewed sense of the exotic in Luc Besson's 1994 action drama, Leon: The Professional. Accompanied by Eric Serra's imaginative score, Leon's opening shots of Manhattan in the summer - a disembodied camera floating over the Hudson and Central Park - make the place look almost otherworldly.
This is entirely in keeping with the title character Leon (Jean Reno), a childlike foreigner who moves from apartment to apartment like a ghost, seemingly unnoticed among the city's bustle and thrum. An Italian migrant, Leon works as a contract killer for Danny Aiello's mafia boss Tony, who runs his operation from a restaurant in Little Italy. A solitary figure, Leon's »
Leon: The Professional, 1994.
Directed by Luc Besson.
Leon (Jean Reno) is a solitary assassin living under the employ of Italian gangster Tony (Danny Aiello). After hideously corrupt DEA agent Norman Stansfield (Gary Oldman) slaughters a mostly innocent family on his floor, he's forced to take in twelve-year-old girl Mathilda (Natalie Portman). The unlikely duo begin to bond and grow, as Mathilda asks Leon to train her in the art of assassination, so that she can claim revenge for the death of year 4-year-old brother.
Leon is a fantastic piece of cinema that simply doesn't get enough acclaim or recognition. This could be due to the sheer quality of films that were released in 1994, that simply overshadowed the more unknown Leon: The Professional. To name a few, 1994 spawned such milestones as; Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump and The Lion King. Although »
