Robocop_Joel_Kinnaman

Robocop (2014) revisits the territory blazed by Paul Verhoeven in the 1987 original film, except watered down for a PG-13 audience. To be fair, the remake is geared more as a straight-laced action flick with heavy sci-fi overtones and one singularly frightening scene of extraordinary body-horror. What will the grue-crew think? Thomas continues the theme with the Top 5 of the Week bringing his Top 5 Under Appreciated Remakes featuring films like Little Shop of Horrors, Dawn of … Continue reading

Interstate-60-movie-2002-1

SYNOPSIS: A confused young man (Marsden) takes a journey on a road that doesn’t exist on any map. REVIEW: “Interstate 60 Episodes of the Road” was one film that caught me by surprise. I’ve always associated it with the stylings of a cult film although I’m not so sure it ever caught on to signal “that” classification.
