Cool Cosplay: Weird Science

Cool Cosplay: Weird Science

“So, what would you little maniacs like to do first?” This is not so much cosplay, but more like a recreation of a scene. What a scene! The moment Lisa (Kelly LeBrock) appears in the John Hughes film, Weird Science. Christine H. McConnell is the one who put it all together and that is her filling Lisa’s costume. An amazing job. So much...

Watch the Alternate First Take of John Carpenter’s Halloween

Many of you probably watched John Carpenter’s Halloween yesterday. It is a fantastic movie and still works so well. Billy Kirkus shared this alternate first take of the classic opening and had this to say about it: This is the first take of the opening to Halloween.

Do I really expect my childhood back? – Thoughts on new STAR WARS

Do I really expect my childhood back? – Thoughts on new STAR WARS

I don’t know how old you are, but I saw THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK three times on opening day. I was a nine year-old girl. I went with my older brother to the very first screening, got out of it, ran into a friend of his from High School and (sort-of)  browbeat him into loaning us money to see it again and to let us cut in line with him. Viewing number...

Christian Bale’s Pokémon Movie

Christian Bale’s American Psycho scene with the cards is a classic. Swap the business cards for Pokémon cards and there you have it. I suppose “Got To Catch ‘em All” could apply to both. Source:...

Best Fight Scene Ever: Part 35 – Robocop Drug Factory Shootout

Best Fight Scene Ever: Part 35 – Robocop Drug Factory Shootout

“Come quietly or there will be…trouble” With those words Robocop took out a warehouse full of bad guys. Great scene from a great movie. Will the remake match it? Will the new Robocop move in a similar way to the original or will he move like a normal human? Can anyone match the character of Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) for a great...

After 40 years — it’s time to WAKE IN FRIGHT

After 40 years —  it’s time to WAKE IN FRIGHT

 I recently got the opportunity to see a new old film set in the brutal Australian Outback made by a polite Canadian who has waited forty years for the rest of the world to catch up to his bleak tale of a man’s fast downhill slide into the worst extremes of humanity and give it the recognition it deserved in 1971. The film is the excellent and hard to...

I have thought about something like this; highlighting works in progress here in LFF …some of whom are so small you might...
