Collider has just reported that there’s a reboot to the goofy Leprachaun movies coming, called Leprechaun Returns (I’m unaware if it’s a sequel to 2014’s Leprechaun: Origins). And speaking of Origins, it wasn’t great but you could see the franchise moving away from the somewhat sillier aspects of the franchise. The Leprechaun movies have for […]
John Carpenter’s 1981 dystopian thriller Escape From New York spawned a sequel–1996’s Escape From L.A.–and a lawsuit. And now it’s birthed a bit of fashion that–probably–won’t kill you when the clock reaches zero. If oversized smartwatches are your thing, click here for more info.

The only fly in the ointment (or spanner in the works or pig in […]
Lucy Besson, while a visually sumptuous director, is not a terribly original writer–which may have a little to do with him settling with John Carpenter over his 2012 movie Lockout, which was essentially Escape From New York aboard a space station.
