Jason Momoa Loves the Idea of a Twins Remake Co-Starring Peter Dinklage

Jason Momoa Loves the Idea of a Twins Remake Co-Starring Peter Dinklage
I don't know about you, but the idea of seeing Game of Thrones stars Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage join forces for a remake of Twins sounds like good times to me. Let me make sure and point out right up front here today that this is not in any way official news, this is merely a fun story that occurred the other day. You see what had happened was Momoa was recently speaking at Celebrity Fan Fest, and when a fan pitched the idea of the Twins remake with Peter Dinklage, Momoa answered with this.

"F--kin' tell me where to sign! Absolutely. That'd be amazing. I love that movie."

And boom! There you go. Jason Momoa is more than down for starring in a remake of the classic '80s buddy comedy. Now we just need to have someone track this Peter Dinklage character down and make sure he's just as enthusiastic.

Film News: Opening Night of 2019 Cinepocalypse in Chicago is ‘Verotika’ on June 13, 2019

Chicago – Genre films, those categories of movies that have specific themes – horror, thriller, comedy – but remain undefined in their unique qualities, is exactly what the Cinepocalypse Film Festival is all about. The week-long 2019 edition of the fest kicks off on Thursday, June 13th, at Chicago’s historic Music Box Theatre with the World Premiere of “Verotika,” written and directed by Glenn Danzig, founder and vocalist of the legendary band Misfits. Danzig will appear on behalf of the film. For more information and tickets, click here.

Glenn Danzig’s passion for film, the occult, paganism, and all things ghouls ‘n ghosts inspired “Verotika.” Featuring a plot shrouded in secrecy and based on the output of Danzig’s long-running, mature comic book publishing company Verotik — a compound of “violence” and “erotic” — this feature film anthology is a realization of his lifelong love of comic books and the dark arts. There is no

Swamp Thing Season 1 Review

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Even as a diehard DC fan, I must confess that I was somewhat surprised when I first learned that Swamp Thing would be among the first shows to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service. After all, this character has mostly been a cult favorite for much of his publishing history, though a surge in pop culture notoriety did occur back in the early 1990’s.

If you’re old enough to remember, then you should recall when Swampy was fresh off two feature films and couple TV shows starring him were developed. One was a bizarre anthology-style live action series, while the other was animated – and had a goofy theme song to boot. Naturally, a toy line spawned from the latter, which was much appreciated by a seven-year-old Eric Joseph.

In the time since, I’ve kept the character at arm’s length

Class of 1984: How a Tale of at Risk Youth Became the Edgiest Teen Film of the 80s [Rewind]

Class of 1984: How a Tale of at Risk Youth Became the Edgiest Teen Film of the 80s [Rewind]
Director Mark L. Lester is known for many things. Roller Boogie, Pterodactyl and Showdown in Little Tokyo are one side of this iconoclastic coin. The other side includes movies like Firestarter, Armed and Dangerous and the legendary Commando. Yes, for all that Mr. Lester has given the world of cinema, he helmed this Arnold Schwarzenegger kill-fest, which saw that iconic actor head to Latin America on a death mission after some bad guys kidnap his daughter. The action is tight, on point, and this film works in just about any era because it is so visceral. In fact, Lester acquits himself so well here that one wonders why he didn't make Predator or Total Recall?

However, somewhere amidst the big budget Hollywood films and the cult classics, Mark L. Lester managed to helm a film called Class of 1984. This gem from 1982 is neither big budget nor as fun as

‘You Don’t Nomi’ Review: Disjointed ‘Showgirls’ Doc Won’t Reach Cult Status — Tribeca

‘You Don’t Nomi’ Review: Disjointed ‘Showgirls’ Doc Won’t Reach Cult Status — Tribeca
It’s a shame that “You Don’t Nomi,” a new documentary about the failure and reevaluation of Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 pulp film “Showgirls,” doesn’t live up to its truly inspired title. A play on the movie’s enigmatic, beguiling, and totally unhinged protagonist Nomi Malone, played by Elizabeth Berkeley in a career-defining (and -ending) role, the title calls to mind Lesley Gore’s 1963 classic “You Don’t Own Me” — a connection that amuses at first glance, but becomes quite tenuous once you think about it. The same could be said for “You Don’t Nomi.”

For the uninitiated, “Showgirls” follows a young Nomi Malone as she arrives in Las Vegas with dreams of becoming a dancer. Fresh off the success of “Basic Instinct,” Verhoeven attracted top-tier talent of the era like Kyle MacLachlan and Gina Gershon, both of whom thought they were signing onto a grittier, more daring “Basic Instinct.

Blu-ray Review – Kindergarten Cop / Kindergarten Cop 2

Kindergarten Cop, 1990

Directed by Ivan Reitman.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penelope Ann Miller, Pamela Reed, Richard Tyson, Miko Hughes.

Synopsis:

UK Blu-ray releases of hard-man-cops-turned-kindergarten-teachers action comedies.

There comes a point in every action hero’s movie career when they have to relent and prove they are not just a gun and a pair of fists, and for Arnold Schwarzenegger that moment came with 1988s Twins. However, despite being a commercial success, Twins was a co-headliner with Danny DeVito providing most of the jokes at Arnie’s expense, and so between the heavy hitters of Total Recall and Terminator 2 Arnie tried his hand at comedy again with Kindergarten Cop, and what a joy it was.

If you haven’t seen Kindergarten Cop by now then the basic premise is that tough streetwise cop John Kimble (Schwarzenegger) has to go undercover as a kindergarten teacher in order to find the on-the-run wife

Bronco McLoughlin obituary

Stunt performer who appeared in films including The Mission, Total Recall and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Bronco McLoughlin, who has died aged 80, was the stunt performer seen in one of the most powerful cinematic opening sequences of the past half century. He played the Jesuit priest strapped to a giant crucifix who careers over a waterfall to his death at the start of The Mission (1986), the director Roland Joffé’s epic about 18th-century Spanish Jesuits protecting a South American tribe from Portuguese colonialists seeking slaves.

McLoughlin floated along the rapids until he disappeared over the top of Iguazú Falls, on the border of Brazil and Argentina – by which time a lifelike dummy made by Madame Tussauds had replaced him on the cross. The breathtaking scene – featured on publicity posters – was heightened by Chris Menges’s Oscar-winning photography.

Sharon Stone movies: 10 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Basic Instinct,’ ‘Casino,’ ‘Total Recall’
Many first spied Sharon Stone when she made her wordless big-screen debut in 1980, billed as Pretty Girl on the Train, in Woody Allen’s “Stardust Memories.” She does leave an impression while blowing a kiss from behind a train window. As Stone has said, “I gave it my best shot to melt that sucker.”

Colin Farrell To Star In New A24 Sci-Fi Drama ‘After Yang’ From Filmmaker Kogonada

Colin Farrell is an interesting actor to discuss. It’s impossible to say with any confidence just exactly he chooses his roles. There’s no question the actor is talented, but his IMDb is just all over the place. There are clear highlights, such as “In Bruges,” “Minority Report,” and recent films like “Widows,” “The Lobster,” and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer.” But those are offset by “Daredevil,” “Fright Night,” “Total Recall,” and “Winter’s Tale.” So, basically, when Farrell is good, he’s really good.

Catalog From The Beyond: Watchers (1988)

  • DailyDead
Something you should know about me for this month’s installment of Catalog From the Beyond is that as a kid, I was a huge fan of The Two Coreys. I could not get enough from Coreys Feldman or Haim, and of course much of this love springs from The Lost Boys, a pivotal movie in many of our collective horror educations. But I loved anything the Coreys put out, either together or on their own. And while everyone knows about Feldman’s hot streak of ’80s staples, I don’t think Haim gets nearly enough credit for his own contributions. He brought an earnest charm in early work like Silver Bullet and Lucas that later gave way to a mischievous streak in movies such as License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. We get a dash of both personas in this month’s featured flick, the 1988 monster movie Watchers.
