The Malicious Misogyny of the Modern Movie Geek

8 October 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the malicious misogyny of the modern movie geek…

I haven’t written anything in a few weeks. This is because I only write columns when I feel compelled to do so. Like any sanctimonious writer I require the sweet touch of inspiration. Half the reason most people write in the first place is a deep-seeded need to organize thoughts and offer an opinion. It’s as cathartic to the writer as it is (hopefully) entertaining to the reader.

For the first time in years I’ve found myself uninspired to pen a column. I’ve tried here and there halfheartedly starting and abandoning columns about Darren Aronofsky’s polarizing mother! and a long gestating piece comparing Contact to Arrival as examples of romanticism vs. post-modernism. I just couldn’t do it. 2017 has been a strange, troubling and continues to evolve from baffling to maddening and lately inducing a kind of mental paralysis. »

Why Jamie Lee Curtis Had To Return For The Halloween Reboot

4 October 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think it’s fair to say that there’s a sense of cautious optimism slowly building around David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s new take on the iconic Halloween. Said to be a reboot/direct sequel to the second film in the franchise (plot details are still scarce, so the exact shape it’ll take is currently unknown), everything we’ve heard about it so far has sounded quite promising and perhaps the most exciting update to arise is that Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to the role of Laurie Strode.

Admittedly, it was an announcement that took almost everyone by surprise, but it was very welcome news and now, in an interview with Metro, Green’s explained why he just had to have the actress in his film. To put it simply, it’s because no one else can play the character.

“Because she is Laurie Strode (laughs). Right? »

It Came From The Tube: Body Bags (1993)

3 September 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Throughout his film career, John Carpenter was always ahead of the curve; whether finalizing the blueprint for the modern slasher or offering an ever prescient political take on alien invasions, Carpenter always seemed to be ahead of what the next big thing would be, often to decreased box office receipts. So it came as a surprise to many (myself included) that he started up Body Bags (1993), a would-be anthology series ala Tales from the Crypt for Showtime. The bigger surprise though is that it didn’t fly, because this one off is terrific entertainment.

Originally televised on Showtime on August 8th, Body Bags was met with critical approval and fans of the genre enjoyed it. However, the brass had already decided that this would be a one and done, hence the truncated anthology film format for the three segments already filmed. What a shame, because while Carpenter in front of »

Revisiting the Classic Movie Ski Patrol: 10 Things You Didn’t Know

7 August 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ski Patrol was one of those movies you either love or learn to forget very quickly. Filmed in the early 1990’s it was one of many films that were trying to keep alive the same slapstick humor that had worked for movies like Revenge of the Nerds, Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, and many others. The only problem was that it’s humor kind of got lost in mid-transition from the 80’s to the 90’s and as a result it fell a little flat. A lot of people would admit that the film is a humorous take on the world of skiing and

'Revenge of the Nerds': THR's 1984 Review

20 July 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On July 20, 1984, Fox released the R-rated college comedy Revenge of the Nerds. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

There's a little nerd, at least, in all of us and this identification factor will probably work for Fox's box office prospects. Revenge of the Nerds is primarily the story of outcasts getting their just rewards, and that is always a satisfying movie ingredient. Nonetheless, this scattergun, often scatological film is filled with extensive racial stereotypes, which may offend some moviegoers. 

Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards star as two horn-rimmed computer students who attend the local Texas A&M-type college. »
