This post is dedicated to my excellent friend Sue as we talk about this actor a lot. It normally goes like this…S: “He’s great in Peaky Blinders” K: “I have not seen that. But he is one of the greatest superhero actors as THE SCARECROW!” S: “I have not seen those.”

He’s one of the greatest living actors and a good looking son of a bitch so I did not really need an excuse for this. He’s also the only thing I liked in Dunkirk. The film not the place. :p

POEM – Antique Butterfly Net

I used an antique butterfly net
To capture your heart.
The hunt was intense
As was it all
But I soon learned that someone so beautiful
And full of emotion
Was never meant to be caught.
I saw it as true love
You merely saw a cage
And you rattled those bars like Marley’s bones
And escaped to a life less ordinary,
A Mardi Gras,
Whereas I represented a funeral march,
My sepia could not contain your colour.

The film world has lost one of the greatest directors of all time with the tragic death of Milos Forman after a short illness at the ripe old age of 86. Forman transcended time, genres and styles. Hair? That was Forman. Classic. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest? That was Forman. Classic. The People VS Larry Flynt? That was Forman. Classic. Man On The Moon? That was Forman. Classic. The Fireman’s Ball? That was Forman. Classic. Take those movies in isolation and they are very different beasts but see them as a glorious stack of work by one powerful thinker and you can see ideals and messages and intelligence that bleeds off of the screen, straight into the brains and hearts of cinephiles everywhere. One of the greatest of all time, we may never see his like again. Slip R.P. McMurphy into the player and raise a glass to one of the best.

XBox One – Shenmue is BACK, Baby!

shenmue

Shenmue is one of those games that is either one of the greatest things you ever played or completely passed you by. I have NEVER met anyone who played it for a bit and then moved on, it’s either off your radar or you have great memories of playing it on the Dreamcast and cannot wait to replay the magic of the first two games on the Xbox One. You can guess by this hyperbole which side of the fence that I have always been on. Hours walking around looking for those Japanese capsule machines to get virtual toys. And again. And again. And now in 2018, I am more than ready to live that adventure all over again. Thank you SEGA!

Cool Movie Posters : Truth Or Dare

Cool Movie Posters : Truth Or Dare

Holy Sh!t, I cannot wait for Truth Or Dare! I had been hearing buzz about its ‘darkness’ and its ‘sickness’ and it looks like a classic 70’s rollercoaster ride, TCM style and you cannot give a bigger recommendation than that UNLESS your film also features two of my favourite movie icons, the fantastic Ryan Kiser who lest we forget (I didn’t forget) is the best screen Manson ever and Devanny Pinn who portrayed Susan Atkins with such a mix of beautiful seduction and feminine power. TICKET PLEASE.

*EDIT* So the reason that I did not know two of my fave actors were in a big buzz movie is that the new Truth Or Dare is a pg-13 thing with no one I know and this little monster is already a few years old which means I must find it right now! RIGHT NOW, I TELLS YA.
