There is a reason the internet was invented… and here it is. I remember watching a handful of these scenes years ago when the project first started. I think I saw Kevin Smith in one of the first few scenes. starwarsuncut.com

As you’ve probably noticed, 2011 was a pretty good year for film. While I was one of the few saying the hate for 2010 was a little exaggerated, there is no doubt that this year’s crop of films really delivered. — more

Serial, Super Serial: A View to a Kill

Super Serial aims to dissect series of pop art — be it a filmography, discography or run of comics — by looking at its individual components.

After our short but unofficial break with last week’s Never Say Never Again, Roger Moore returns as James Bond in John Glen’s 1985 A View to a Kill, the fourteenth of the series and last for its star. Taking place near the beginning of the rise of the personal computer, the film uses this real-world fascination at the center of its plot. Bond films have often taken the fears of the Cold War or have aped the styles of popular genres, so the film’s interest in the microchip is an interesting look at technology of the 1980s. — more

Serial, Super Serial: Never Say Never Again

Super Serial aims to dissect series of pop art — be it a filmography, discography or run of comics — by looking at its individual components.

All of the films I’ve previously talked about have been produced by Eon Productions, and mostly produced by the team of Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. In fact, all James Bond films minus two were produced by Eon — the 1967 spy spoof Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again. Directed by Irvin Kershner, best known for The Empires Strike Back (Episode V for those under 20), and despite a solid cast, it doesn’t quite live up to the talent involved. — more

“This book does not aim to provide a complete history of Hammer, but to share the best with its archive on a film-by-film basis. The classics are presented alongside a judicious selection of other titles, each dated to the year production began. The journey begins in 1954 with the experiment that transformed both Hammer and of course British cinema.” — more

Serial, Super Serial: Octopussy

Super Serial aims to dissect series of pop art — be it a filmography, discography or run of comics — by looking at its individual components.

Octopussy proves that a decent film with some major strengths cannot be a good Bond film without compelling villains and Bond Girls. Even though the film has one of the more exciting climaxes seen in a Bond mission, overall it feels bland. — more

Wow. This may end up way better than I even thought possible. Hit the jump to stream the newest trailer. I did watch the prologue over the weekend and I must agree with most critics, Bane is almost impossible to understand. — more

Prometheus Poster

The poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus just arrived. I love it, it hints at the original Alien poster just enough, but leaves whatever connection the two have a mystery. I have purposefully not read any stories about Prometheus. I know there may or may not be ties to the Space Jockey, and that there are vague Alien undertones, but that’s all know. Alien is untouchable in my mind, no sc-fi or horror movie even comes close. So if Ridlyy and the Prometheus team can even give us a whiff of that past success, I’ll be quite happy. hit the jump for the full look. — more

Serial, Super Serial: For Your Eyes Only

Super Serial aims to dissect series of pop art — be it a filmography, discography or run of comics — by looking at its individual components.

Welcome to the ‘80s! The third decade of the Bond series begins with For Your Eyes Only, the directorial debut of previous editor and second unit shooter John Glen. Although I wouldn’t lavish too much credit on Glen, I appreciate this film more than many others in the series. It has some painfully comedic side-steps, but, along with On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, this has the most serious, realistic tone of any of the films. I don’t want to downplay that there are some major comedic misses here (see the “Random Thoughts” for examples), and this inconsistent tone may turn some viewers off, but I applaud For Your Eyes Only for striving for something with a little more resonance. It may not totally succeed, but an attempt is something. — more
