Invasion Of The Body Snatchers: The Making Of A Classic by Mark Thomas McGee (book review).

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when looking through BearManor Media’s back catalogue. Mark Thomas McGee’s name kept coming up against books based on particular films and your mind tend to think they must be roll-offs.

Back in the silent movies era, the ‘Katzenjammer Kids’ appeared in 1898 followed by a dozen shorts of ‘Happy Hooligan’ from 1900-1903. When it comes to the […]

Somehow Hollywood continues to search for different outlets in conveying young love at the box office. Sure, the goal is always the same in terms of tapping into the youth market by promoting yet another transparent teen weepie but, this time, among the planetary stars.

The new upcoming Wolverine movie, Logan, gets a rather 1970s-style poster for the film. Looks, good, though. Thanks to the director, James Mangold, for pushing out this bad boy.

Nice to see that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is remembering music artist David Bowie … here’s their new trailer with some backing from Ziggy Stardust. There’s also seem to be an unfeasibly large weapon being hauled around by Gamora. The film is due to hit in May 2017. Yippee.

On the way, they come across some really unpleasant people and obstacles to overcome in their dubious mission. The plot moves slowly enough for ‘Road To The Well’ to qualify for […]

Richard Hatch, Battlestar Galactica’s original Apollo, has sadly passed away of pancreatic cancer at the too young age of 71. He later went on to play a dodgy labour organiser with ambitions of power as the rather evil Tom Zarek in the Galactica re-imagining. He started off as Michael Douglas’s replacement in the cop series […]
