Bullets and bats: when Hammer Films met 007

1 June 2011 9:29 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

“My name is Bond - James Bond". That classic introduction to the cinema’s greatest secret agent is as famous as “I am Dracula, I bid you welcome.” When the box office success of Dr No (1962) turned the unknown Sean Connery into a movie legend, Hammer was never far away from the franchise. With their own films running parallel to the Bond series, Hammer and Eon Productions often made use of the same talent.

Dr No also marked the debuts of Bernard Lee (the first of 11 films as M) and Lois Maxwell (the first of 14 as Miss Moneypenny). Lee had a brief turn as Tarmut in Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1973) and despite never starring in a Hammer horror, Maxwell turned up in their early fifties thrillers Lady in the Fog (1953) and Mantrap (1954).

Horror at the Oscars Part III

12 March 2011 4:25 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Tremors? Nightbreed? Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat? 976-evil? Are all on the list this year. And though there were not huge horror wins in sound editing through screenplays, the Technical Awards never cease to bring out the horror veterans. Notably Tim Drnec who contributed to such VHS classics as Alien Seed, Destroyer, and Prison won for his work on “Spydercam 3D volumetric suspended cable camera technologies.” An award also shared with Ben Britten Smith and Matt Davis who both also worked on Constantine.

But among all the winners, the Academy also honored some great loses in 2010. And though they mentioned some of our heroes, Dennis Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Dino de Laurentiis (King Kong), they did not mention Zelda Rubinstein or Corey Haim. But we will in this last section and the others lost to us last year.

So farewell fight fans and remember, »

Top 10 Secret Organisations On Film!

26 February 2011 7:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the imminent release of the Philip K Dick adaptation The Adjustment Bureau, politician Matt Damon finds his affections for Emily Blunt’s ballerina disrupted by mysterious and ruthless figures the Agents of Fate, who attempt everything within their power to keep Damon and Blunt apart. So, it seems like an apt moment to take a look at ten other shadowy organisations within recent Hollywood paranoid history.

As is the nature with exposing these secret organisations there may be a few spoilers…

10. Quantum in Quantum of Solace

Judi Dench’s M puts it the best in Marc Forster’s Bond movie played at double speed when she wonders;

‘When someone says “We’ve got people everywhere”, you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn’t mean that they’ve got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!’

Yes, Quantum, a »
