Happy 86th Birthday Clint Eastwood! Here Are His Ten Best Films

31 May 2016 5:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 86 years old. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit. Sully, his new movie as a director, opens in September.

We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here

Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

By the 1980s, Clint Eastwood was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.  With his own production company, directorial skills, and economic clout, Eastwood was able to make smaller, more personal films.  A perfect example is the underrated Honkytonk Man, which also happens to be one of Eastwood’s finest performances. »

‘Firewalker’ Blu-ray Review (101 Films)

4 April 2016 7:08 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chuck Norris, Louis Gossett Jr., Melody Anderson, Will Sampson, Sonny Landham, John Rhys-Davies, Ian Abercrombie, Richard Lee-Sung | Written by Robert Gosnell | Directed by J. Lee Thompson

Looking back now – three decades later – it’s hard to believe that the idea of an archaeologist as The go-to film hero was, oftentimes, a guarantee to bring in the punters and create a big-money blockbuster movie! Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, King Solomon’s Mines, etc. all graced the big screen to varying degrees of success during the mid-80s; and yes, it was Spielberg’s film that reignited the genre but it took Cannon Films – the purveyors of low-budget, high-concept big screen bonanzas – to really put the fun into this now-buried treasure of a genre.

After hitting it big with King Solomon’s Mines, they milked the classic character for another big-budget (at least for Cannon) movie before the flash-in-the-pan adventurer genre faded. »

Blu-ray Review – Firewalker (1986)

4 April 2016 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Firewalker, 1986.

Directed by J. Lee Thompson.

Starring Chuck Norris, Louis Gossett Jr., Melody Anderson, Sonny Landham, Will Sampson, John Rhys-Davies, Ian Abercrombie.

Synopsis:

A pair of hapless adventurers take on a job to find priceless Aztec gold but are pursued by a vengeful spirit who will stop at nothing to protect it.

Back in the mid-1980s there was a brief moment when ripping off Indiana Jones movies was a thing and, as was the norm, it was the legendary Cannon Films who were the masterminds behind many of those low-budget gems. Whilst the mainstream responded to Harrison Ford’s archaeological adventures with the likes of the slick Michael Douglas-led romp Romancing the Stone, Cannon gave us the lacklustre King Solomon’s Mines and its sequel Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (both of which featured a young Sharon Stone alongside Richard Chamberlain in the lead role »

Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter talk about the sex scenes in Jessica Jones

19 January 2016 1:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend at the Netflix TCA (via ComicBook), the stars of Jessica Jones were around to take questions about the first season, particularly after the announcement of a second series. One of the ‘hot’ topics of conversation however was the chemistry and relationship between Jessica (Krysten Ritter) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter). How did the actors find them?

“If you’re gonna have to do a scene like that, it’s not terrible to do it with Mike,” Ritter said laughing. “He’s all right looking, but he’s also just a nice guy, always has your back.”

They both added that there’s “nothing sexy” about their scenes and that they actually pick on each other during them.

“The awkward point is the people that are in the room besides us,” Colter added. “We’re okay, it’s the 20-30 people that are around who are all of »
