Forgotten or Unappreciated Films of the 1980s: Vol. 1

Before he had his face rearranged through both amateur boxing and plastic surgery, the 80s ‘Mr. Cool’ Mickey Rourke played a guy who undergoes surgery to rearrange his disfigured face. Irony aside, Rourke was always a formidable actor and his 80s catalogue is impressive.

2013: The Year in Film

In a year of great belly laughs, 2013 didn’t get much funnier than Diana. Firstly, what was Naomi Watts thinking? And secondly, what was Naomi Watts thinking? Movie 43 was a success in as much as it was the myriad filmmakers’ intent to embarrass a bevy of Hollywood actors (including Naomi Watts!)…
