The King Of Comedy (1983)

In 1983, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese had already collaborated on four films together, culminating in De Niro’s Oscar for Raging Bull in 1980. This dynamite team had been at the forefront of the groundbreaking decade of cinema known as the 1970s, and when they made The King Of Comedy in ‘83, the pair had reached a level of singular sophistication in their method and delivery…

Mad Max 2 (1981)

In a post-apocalyptic world, the only commodity of value is “guzzoline” (yep, food is secondary) and for Max, it’s a never-ending quest to secure the stuff. When he agrees to help a ragtag band of survivors drive a tanker full of the precious liquid away from their compound, it is merely an excuse to stage some kick-ass chase scenes in the Australian outback…

Terminator Salvation (2009)

The first forty minutes of this film is extraordinarily good – so much so that I was reaching to take back the grenade I’d thrown at McG and offer a hand of gratitude.

The Exorcist (1973)

Famously, it was the film that saw cinemas distribute vomit bags to audiences at the time of release, with many people fainting in the theatre at the horrific sights on screen. And indeed, the vision of an obscenity-screaming preteen indecently applying a crucifix to herself still remains one of the most unforgettable in cinema history, even by today’s “torture porn” horror film standards. But The Exorcist is more than just a piece of celluloid designed to shock…

RECESSION-PROOF MOVIES: Bargain Bin Alternatives To Classic Films

If you were like so many others who sat through Forrest Gump thinking, “What this film really needs is some scantily-clad bikini babes with big norgs.” then Buford’s Beach Bunnies is the film for you. Featuring the acting prowess of Jim Hanks (Tom’s less-talented younger brother) this raunchy 1993 comedy-romp tells the story of a moron named Jeeter, a young man terrified of sex, whose popularity with females soars when his pushy father offers $100,000 to the first girl to deflower him. It’s the sort of sophisticated premise missing in movies these days…
