Kevin Smith’s “Spoilers”

I’ve been a Kevin Smith for some time. To toss out the obligatory “Back in the day” I loved Clerks, Mallrats and then of course Chasing Amy, which I still think is some of the best acting/directing I’ve seen in a low budget, dramatic tone. However, although I dug pretty much everythhing Mr. Smith did from that point on, I’d be lying if I said my ‘Love’ ratio didn’t decrease the more his budget increased. Then Clerks II happened and it was the first time I had a slightly adverse reaction to one of Kevin Smith’s films.

Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America

A couple of years ago a conversation about movies between some friends and I led ’round to the movie Falling Down, which I had not seen since its initial release on VHS in, oh about 1994 or so. I remembered very little about Falling Down save for a few key scenes that left a favorable and rather iconic impression on me. I found my friends had not ever seen the film and I made plans to have them over again in a week’s time for a viewing.

Why You Should Be Really Excited About Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

Want to know just what the heck that’s a picture of? So do I. So do A LOT of people, some of them no doubt stewing over it for over thirty years now. The screen capture is of course from 1979’s Alien, directed by Ridley Scott and starring the now infamously famous Sigourney Weaver, John Hurt and a host of other unfortunates who stop off on the wrong planet to answer the wrong distress beacon (which turns out to be a ‘Stay the hell away’ beacon) and initiate events that ignite what is in my mind the best* Sci-Fi film franchise ever. And if you are a fan, or even if you’ve only just seen the original film in the series, you may have watched the scene the above image is from and said to yourself, “Now just what the hell is that?”.
