Manny from 7Outof10.co.uk got to interview the Top Gun screenwriter Jack Epps Jr. and sicne he knows I’m a Jerry Bruckheimer (he produced Top Gun) nut, he asked if me if I’d like to contribute some questions which of course, I did!
I’ve placed a few of them below but for the full interview, head over to 7Outof10.co.uk – especially if you’re a fan of the games.
At the time, would you have believed that Top Gun would still be loved 25 years after it was originally made?
When I first became inspired to write the movie I thought we had a unique visual world to write about. »

On the posters and advertisements, it might seem like a dramatic romance between Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, but A Single Man is actually the story of a college professor struggling through life after the death of his partner (Matthew Goode). In his review, Eugene Novikov pointed out the high and low points of the film: "despite the shaky start, Ford finds an elegant, striking way of bringing this material to the screen. Much of A Single Man is an elegiac tone poem, rendered haunting by Ford's beautifully composed images, and propelled by a gorgeous, somewhat Philip Glass-like musical score by little-known Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski." Rent it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Fans of George Romero's Day Of The Dead love Pvt. Steele, the brash strong arm of Joe Pilato's Capt. Rhodes. Gary Klar, the actor who played Steele, recently sat down with Icons of Fright's editor-in-chief Phil Fasso at the Saturday Nightmares convention to discuss his long career (and because he was sitting next to Pilato, Joe chimed in more than once). Gary talks about his college football career, work in films such as Legal Eagles and Kim Paffenroth's Gospel of the Living Dead, a look at Romero's zombie films. And he gives us his inside look on what motivated Steele.

Saturday Nightmares, March 19-21
Con of the Dead: Saturday Night’s All Right for Zombies
If you’re a fan of George Romero, and you live in the tri-state area, I have a question for you: Where were you on March 19-21? Because not nearly enough of you were in Jersey City, NJ at Saturday Nightmares, meeting Romero and a multitude of actors and actresses involved in his movies. As I stated in a promo piece for the convention, this was a dream show for those who love all things Romero, with guests from Martin, Creepshow, his first three Dead movies, Two Evil Eyes, and as a bonus, the man who directed Document Of The Dead. If you missed out on this one, you missed out on one Hell of a show.
A week before, Icons founder Mike Cucinotta and I had traveled through the Apocalypse to get to a convention. »
Hot Tub Time Machine opens this Friday. The high concept for this dude comedy? As you might suspect from the movie's title, a time traveling hot tub that sends John Cusack, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, and Rob Corddry back to the year 1986.
The now 43-year-old Cusack has aged quite well, looking not much different than he did in 1986's Stand By Me. Which got us thinking: How have the other stars of 1986's most popular and enduring flicks (Top Gun, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, About Last Night...) held up? Who just needs to dip a toe in the water? And who would benefit from a long, deep soak?
