When Supernatural first premiered way back in 2005, none of us probably thought that it’d still be churning out new episodes over a decade later, but here we are. Having spawned a cult following and conventions devoted specifically to it, the fan favorite horror series chronicling the adventures of Sam and Dean Winchester is still going strong, with a thirteenth season set to commence this October.
Not meaning to get ahead of ourselves, we’ll reflect on what made this past year stand out, namely the resurrection of the boys’ mother, Mary. Seeing her try to re-acclimate to a world she’d been absent from for over 30 years by diving back into the hunting lifestyle made for some interesting television. Not only that, but she got mixed up with the British Men of Letters, serving as an oversized B-plot.
More exciting than that was the extended stay of Lucifer that »

Indian actor Tiger Shroff is taking on a big challenge, stepping into the role of Rambo for an upcoming Hindi remake. The character was introduced in 1982’s First Blood, which of course starred Sylvester Stallone — and he recently encouraged the filmmakers in their task (see below). Siddharth Anand, who remade Fox's Knight And Day as Bang Bang in 2014, is directing. Shroff has a martial arts background and has been seen in such pics as Baaghi and Heropanti. I sat down… »

Cic Video? Medusa? Odyssey? Thorn Emi? We track down the classic video companies of yesterday…
The modern DVD and Blu-ray market? Well, it’s all so corporate isn’t it? No slight on the releases, or the companies involved, but I don’t think anyone gets a frission of excitement when they see a Warner Bros Home Entertainment logo on a box, in the way they used to when the Medusa logo popped up. And whilst there are firms such as Arrow and Eureka keeping the flag of quirky film companies flying, there are still a few names consigned to the VHS recycle bin, whose story is in danger of being lost. Hence, this article…
The Indian remake of “Rambo” doesn’t start shooting until next February, but director Siddharth Anand has already earned something every filmmaker in his shoes would want: a vote of confidence from the original Rambo.
“I actually get excited in my heart whenever young artists get a rare opportunity to reach for the stars!” Sylvester Stallone wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday, referring to the 27-year-old Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff who will play the titular character. “I am sure you will put all of your heart and soul into it.” Stallone also tweeted the recently unveiled poster for the movie and wished the filmmakers good luck, adding “I like the energy of Bollywood.”
Based on 1982’s “First Blood, »

This big budget action feature will follow the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of the Himalayas, he unleashes mayhem and destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.
Director Siddharth Anand said, “Rambo is one of the most iconic action blockbuster films from my generation. I grew up looking up to heroes such as Stallone, and in a time where the Indian industry is lacking action characters of Rambo’s caliber, this is a perfect time to introduce Tiger in this role. I cannot wait to work with Tiger on this film; he has that aura about him, »

Each of us possesses a breaking point, an invisible threshold or limit to the amount of pain or anger or stress we can endure. No one really knows how they'll respond upon piercing this barrier until the moment it occurs. It's a line that no one should willingly cross, because how we act under such tremendous duress could cost our freedom, our sanity, or even our life -- or the life of another. For most people, the challenge of reaching their personal breaking point is recognizing the signs and avoiding the triggers. Unfortunately, sometimes life just deals you a series of slow, repeated blows that compounds until you're pushed over the edge (probably before you even realize it's happened).
Buster's Mal Heart, written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith, is a strange, independent film that's invested in exploring one man's breaking point. It's a psychological examination conducted from multiple angles: before, »

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.
Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »
The Expendables introduced the idea of gathering together the world's greatest action heroes all in the same franchise, but many of the actors in the series are past their prime. Though, that is part of the charm. But what if Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger had teamed up for a movie in the 80s playing their most iconic characters? Kurt Russell wanted it to happen and even pitched it.
While promoting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kurt Russell spoke with Fox 5 DC and, at one point, the subject of Snake Plissken joining up with the Guardians came up. While Russell was quick to dismiss that idea, he did reveal that he wanted Snake to join up with the likes of John Rambo and John McClane in a movie. Here is what he had to say about it.

When we talk about movies like the Rambo franchise we love to talk about how it’s John Rambo vs. at least 100 guys and the fact that he takes them all out. We love the death count. We love the action. We love that the movie’s got blockbuster written all over it. However, what we don’t realize is that the very first film in the franchise, First Blood, was actually a pretty serious movie with some decent acting in it. Sure, John Rambo goes nuts, takes over an entire town and blows things up. But why does he do this?

Sylvester Stallone started his rise to fame Hollywood with the Oscar-winning sports drama Rocky. However, in the 80s he established himself as one of the world’s most bankable action stars, and the world has never been the same. It all started with 1982’s aptly named First Blood, introducing us to Stallone’s Vietnam vet, John Rambo. The film is a seminal action classic... Read More »

Growing up in the UK’s equivalent of The Shire meant that access to the escapism of video rentals was something as distant as The Misty Mountains. The arrival of a man who looked like Stanley Uris from Stephen King’s It, driving a van that was filled to the rafters with VHS, and which glowed like the Pulp Fiction briefcase when opened, introduced me to a roll-call of the 80s Action Heroes. Monosyllabic men, who quipped their way through bullets and bodies. The first plastic case to cross my sweaty palms featured a muscular fellow, holding a gun, against a colourful heatmap backdrop. It was Predator, and that was a long time ago.
About where things began to change for the real expendables is hard to pinpoint. Why did these one-time box-office giants; Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van-Damme, and to a lesser degree Lundgren, suddenly find their powers diminishing? »

First up Is First Blood (1982)
First Blood was the original Rambo film before he became known as a one-man army as shown in the sequels, Sylvester Stallone plays Ex-Green Beret and Vietnam War veteran John Rambo who’s passing through a small town after learning of the death of a member of his unit, and all he wants is something to eat. The local sheriff (Brian Dennehy) doesn’t take too kindly to him, however, and after he breaks out of jail, »

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.
The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights. But when the company fell into financial troubles the rights went over to Carolco Pictures (First Blood) who began »

The closing credits of a documentary always include a list of film and TV clips, along with the sources that granted their permission to use them. At the end of “Erase and Forget,” the list is jarringly different: It’s a catalogue of clips lifted right off of YouTube, listed simply by their URL addresses, with no permission given. This could prove to be a legal-rights nightmare for any company that was interested in distributing “Erase and Forget.” And it’s of a piece with the film’s thrown-together student-movie naïveté. The director, Andrea Luka Zimmermann, hasn’t so much made a documentary as presented 90 minutes’ worth of raw material for a documentary. Yet Zimmermann has grabbed hold of the tail of a fascinating subject: the life of James “Bo” Gritz, the Vietnam veteran who enjoyed 15 minutes of fame in the 1980s (he was said to have inspired the character »

There could be some cosmic consequences on the horizon.
Should we be worried about Castiel then?
But was it an outstanding midseason premiere or simply lackluster.
So take break from chow time and join in the latest Supernatural Round Table!
What was your favorite scene or quote?
Alice: My favorite by far was the scene on the bridge with Billie. The whole episode before that was lackluster, and it felt like they were going through the motions. Then that scene happened and we finally got some worthwhile drama.
I love how each Winchester was willing to sacrifice themselves and then boom, »

Hammer and Tongs was the pseudonym of two British director and producing legends, and you’re a bigger fan of them than you thought you were.
I was lucky enough to meet and interview British filmmaker Garth Jennings in London late last week. The director was in town to discuss his latest film Sing, the animated extravaganza featuring the vocal talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton and many more of Hollywood’s current A-list. The film is Jennings’ first for nearly nine years, and is really worth checking out this weekend – whatever your age or musical/ film tastes.
Before the ambitious, five-year long journey ofbringing Sing to screens, Jennings was bashing out content with his production outfit ‘Hammer and Tongs’. In 2007, Jennings and producing partner, »

It may have felt like forever for the Winchesters in that super secret prison, but it was a pretty quick stay considering they only had to endure their new residence for part of Supernatural Season 12 Episode 9.
But being stuck alone in a cell was so bad, so much worse than a stint in hell, that the brothers were willing to make a terrible death-related deal? Really?
I guess it would be tough to do multiple episodes of them sitting alone in their cells doing nothing but waiting for chow time, but why take the time for the brothers to even go there in the first place?
The concept that Sam and Dean were going to have to endure this crazy secret prison was an intriguing one. It felt like something different despite their run-ins with the law before.
It was a neat »
