The new Poltergeist (2015) is out in theaters now, how does it measure up against Tobe Hooper's classic? 
So it's time for another episode of Original vs. Remake, because Hollywood is obsessed with retelling successful stories from the past in a bland, less intense fashion. I'm beginning to notice a trend on my 'Original vs. Remake' articles, the old ones always win! I'm not biased, I always give ...

Today I revisit Eric Red's Bad Moon (1996), a werewolf movie from a gifted writer director. So why was it such a dud? 
Werewolf movies are a tricky bunch, same as the characters in these films, the werewolf film seems to be cursed at the box office where they rarely make their money back. And I'm not talking about vampire films that include werewolves like the Underworld and Twilight franchises, ...

Check out a bunch of behind the scenes pics from the Back to the Future Trilogy, included are a couple of pictures from the first version of Back to the Future (1985), the one that was to star Eric Stoltz! 
This pic is from an early version of Back to the Future, they actually shot the whole film with Eric Stoltz! But they didn't like his rendition of Marty McFly so they filmed the whole thing again, but with Michael J. Fox. Director Robert Zemeckis on location for Back to the Future Part III (1990) ...

A classic anime film often times ignored, check out my review for Lensman: The Secret of the Lens (1984)!
You've probably never heard of Lensman: The Secret of the Lens because for whatever the reason, this film is very obscure, it's not talked about a lot amongst anime fans, or even science fiction fans, which is strange to me because this movie is so damn entertaining, so well animated, ...

Oh What a Lovely Day! Mad Max: Fury Road is finally here and I finally had a chance to see it! Check out my review for this amazing tour de force from legendary director George Miller! 
Mad Max: Fury Road is insanity caught on film! It's 100% purely bonkers! It harkens back to the glory days of the 80's, when even the craziest of ideas would get green lit by a studio. Mad Max: Fury Road is the long awaited return of Max Rockatansky to the silver screen.

My exploration of Japanese Animation continues, today I take a look at Rintaro's Metropolis (2001) a film that was heavily influenced by Fritz Lang's classic silent film of the same name. 
The first thing that attracted me to this anime film is that it was heavily influenced by Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927) and seeing an anime version of one of my favorite science fiction films ever was too tempting to ignore. Fritz Lang's classic silent film inspired this film from inception, ...
