Re: Akira Remake

Eh, I've been hearing about this remake for so long that I remember when Jake Gyllenhaal and Leonardo DiCaprio were being "approached to star". Maybe hold off on any name-dropping unless they're...

Try YouTube, there's no shortage of such individuals on there. Only catch is that they tend to review movies you'd consider too new anyway. Myself, I pretty much gave up on watching such reviews...

Re: Guy walks around reciting a movie hes seen many times

The only one I can think of is the movie Diner, which is in colour and takes place in the 1960s. There is a character who keeps quoting the movie Sweet Smell of Success whenever he runs into other...

Admittedly, I said it was an artistry that "few films of its ilk have matched" so the ilk I was referring to is actually other horror films more than anything else and in that regard it goes above...

I figure a 1/10 can't be given out so arbitrarily - it has to represent the worst of the worst that cinema as an art form can offer, so I try to give them out about as rarely as I give out 10/10...

I'd see the sun rise in the west and find it less surprising than this post. Still, I'd argue that kind of stuff is all worth one watch if only for academic purposes - Alien in particular definitely...

They address early on how he's so recognisable that he has to adopt disguises to make the film (though he still reverts to his regular appearance often enough), but I think it's more a matter of how...
