Frightfest 2015: ‘Turbo Kid’ Review

28 August 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Edwin Wright. Aaron Jeffery, Romano Orzri, Orphée Ladouceur | Written and Directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell

As a kid there were three distinct phases in my movie-watching life. The first was when we rented a Betamax player from the local electrical retailer – who just happened to be the only place that rented the tapes too! That didn’t last. Obviously. And we never did upgrade to VHS, instead going wthout for years. That was until the second phase… In 1989/1990, after incessantly hounding my mother to get a VHS recorder because everyone else had one, she bought one of those huge silver behemoths, apparently one of the first front-loaders, from my uncle who in turn had got it from a guy in a pub who needed the money for beer! That Christmas I recorded Everything – on Granada VHS tapes may I add »

‘Vice’ DVD Review

21 June 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bruce Willis, Ambyr Childers, Thomas Jane, Bryan Greenberg, Johnathon Schaech, Charlotte Kirk, Brett Granstaff, Ryan O’Nan, David Gordon, Colin Egglesfield, Cameron Brexler, Jesse Pruett, Tyler Jon Olson, Don Harvey, Lydia Hull | Written by Andre Fabrizio, Jeremy Passmore | Directed by Brian A. Miller

Take one part The Matrix, one part Surrogates and mix in a dash of video gmae Mirror’s Edge and you have Vice, a Cyberpunk action flick that – for older film fans like myself – plays as little more than a modern-day clone of Westworld and its sequel; which also shares a lot in common with the likes of Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell sequel Innocence.

Designed by Julian Michaels (Willis), Vice is the ultimate resort where anything goes, allowing customers to play out their wildest fantasies and fulfil their deepest, darkest desires with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like real humans. Things »

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

‘Cyborg’ is as well an oiled machine as cheap, B-movies get

31 March 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cyborg

Written by Kitty Chalmers and Daniel Hubbard-Smith

Directed by Albert Pyun

U.S.A., 1989

In the future, a dangerous plague wipes out much of humanity, civilization crumbling away with it. Enter the pirates, gangs that reap barbaric pleasure out of rape and pillage. One such faction is led by the Goliath-like figure of Fender (Vincent Klyn), a psychotic individual seeking to intercept a female cyborg, Pearl (Dayle Haddon), traversing the United States to Atlanta and carrying the secret medicinal knowledge that will help the country’s few remaining doctors determine a cure to the deadly virus. Dayle cannot make the journey alone, requiring the help of tracker Gibson (Jean-Claude Van Damme) a man wrestling with his own demons and wanting to settle a score with the nefarious Fender.

Right from the opening minutes it is abundantly clear that the filmmakers wish to ape the general tone and aesthetic »

The unmade films of James Cameron

3 February 2015 6:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From his psychological thriller to Spider-Man to Battle Angel, here's a look at the James Cameron-directed projects that never happened...

In the summer of 1977, James Cameron, like lots of other people that year, went to the cinema and watched Star Wars. But unlike so many others, Cameron didn't feel elation as the room went dark and the first space ship soared overhead - he felt a shiver of mild panic.

"My reaction to it was not, 'Oh, wow, that's cool. I want to see more,'" he later recalled. "It was, 'Oh wow, I better get off my butt because somebody is doing this stuff, you know, and they're beating me to it.'"

Within one year, the 24-year-old Cameron had borrowed some money from a consortium of dentists looking for a tax break, and with it, made the short film Xenogenesis. That film and its title (which could »
