X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) somehow, miraculously, manages to mix in the X-films (X-Men, X2, The Wolverine) and the First Class X-Men films together while simultaneously negating the negative entries in the franchise (X3 and X-Men Origins). The grue-crew revel in the film’s accomplishments and question some of the time travel shenanigans. Dave ramps up the news of the week with Hannibal Season 3,The Walking Dead and The Overlook Hotel while Santos takes on a new segment of the show, Stump … Continue reading

With ‘ANT-MAN’ Off The Slate, Could ‘THE NIGHT STALKER’ Be Next Up For Edgar Wright?

KolchaktheNightStalker

As any of you who read my postings or listen to our podcasts are very aware, I’m not a “super-hero” fan. We cover a lot of the films on Horror News Radio and generally all I do is bitch about the fact that it’s not a horror flick so, when news came down this week that Edgar Wright had walked away from something called ANT-MAN I could have really not cared less but today comes … Continue reading

I understand that they achieved some minor measure of popularity. By this point, we go in expecting … Continue reading

Two New Featurettes Take Us To THE WORLD’S END

Without a doubt SHAUN OF THE DEAD is to this day one of the best zombie movies to grace our screens in recent memory. Loved it. Not much of a fan of HOT FUZZ but it has its fans and who am I to judge. The point of all this is that the three folks that joined together and gave us those first two are back. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright have pooled … Continue reading

Shaun of the Dead – A Masterclass in Longevity

4sht_SOTD_Master_5-2€

Once more, an evening has been most enhanced by a viewing of Shaun of the Dead. It’s a film that continues to improve with age, and is still a very long way away from having its delights dulled by the passage of time. The amazing thing is that it came out seven years ago (already? Crikey), and that no matter how many times it finds itself on our screen, it still entertains and grips us. … Continue reading
