What Happened to The Predator?

I’m watching The Nice Guys (2016) and it’s hilarious in a darkly comedic way though it me wonder… Having been written by Shane Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, it really works narratively (which might have something to do with Black having written Lethal Weapon along with Jeffrey Boam.

How Long is Too Long?

Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting were 15 and 16 years of age when they starred in Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, which was released in 1968. If you grew up in the 1980’s you’ve probably seen it, as I did. It was a long time ago and while it had a certain soft-core eroticism about […]

Though to be honest Kubrick were alive today I get the feeling that he probably wouldn’t? After all, it’s not as if […]
