I'm sure some of you will laugh at the content of this trailer but it will only reflect how much of a shallow mind you have. Most will view it with anticipation though and hopefully like me think it looks like one of those little gems that only arrive every so often. The choice as always is yours.
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?
I can already see the fuss over this fucker. Lots of Daily Mail whinging over its content. Looks good to me though.
Real fucking shame that this poster is for what's shaping up to be the worst remake ever as it's rather fucking cool.
I won't fucking sit here and pretend that I only like black and white French films and shun the binds of commercial Hollywood especially when it churns wrong shit like this. This reminds of films like Kentucky Fried Movie and love them or hate them I for one couldn't stop laughing especially at the start and the basketball team.
I decided to do my 10 scariest monsters in film and initially was thinking about the usual suspects. You know the ones. Those that haunt your dreams or you remember fondly from your childhood. The likes of Kruger with his razor fingered glove, the cloak swathed figure of Dracula or the giant body crushing power of Jurassic Parks T-Rex. Then I got to really thinking. Surely the scariest monsters are those that could be real or were real so enjoy my selection of human monsters who after seeing have always had a place in my nightmares and it'd be cool if you had a few of your own to share. So pleasant dreams fuckers.
With the way remakes are now I thought these were just so fucking cool. Are they remakes? Not really but digital artist Peter Stults created these and they rock fucking hard. I'll bring you more soon.
I spoke of this so long ago now that my brain hurts to do the maths to figure out when. I'm liking the look of it and the tumbling zombies rock. If it captures even a small percentage of the book it will be very fucking good indeed.
I'm beginning the site overhaul with a review of Shogun Assassin a 1980 Samurai B Movie which since the 80's has been a favourite of mine. Now I intend to bring all kinds of films over the coming weeks and all I ask is you give some a go. You may like them all and hey you may not like any of them but I've always believed that to truly appreciate the art you love you need to see that you hate. Let me put it another way. Your better half would never be beautiful to you if you hadn't seen the ugly ones first. Anyway enjoy and I'll be back soon with a some strange little gems.
Mix one of my favourite genres with a certain Mr Tarantino and you could have the perfect recipe for brilliance. can't fucking wait for this one.
This would normally skip me right by but The Agression Scale was quite a decent little film which I'm sure you all missed and although far from perfect there was enough in there to attract me to the directors follow up film. I'll keep you posted.
It doesn't matter if it's crap. This is Arnie returning solo after a long time out. Will be a throwback to 80's action flicks but so what it's fun and sometimes that's what we want.
I wasn't sure if this could be done but looking at the trailer I'm wet with anticipation. Gone are the shuffling undead of yesteryear and here's a new breed of zombie that almost moves as one. This film could rock very much indeed.
Three of them no less. WTF is going on? Carrie, I mean why would you need to? Texas Chainsaw in fucking 3D is just digital enhanced bollocks and makes me want to chainsaw off my fucking face and douse it in vinegar. However neither of these remakes, reimaginings hurt me as much as the upcoming remake of Evil Dead which as me so fucking angry and lost for words. Why remake a remake of such a classic and pivotal film in horror history. Hollywood can make original horror just ask Joss Wheedon so why this bollocks? I really do give in but I will show you with the new format that if you look you can find some good shit out there.
When I began writing for this wonderful piece of shit site it was a dream come true. To be able to get word out there of upcoming releases and review screenings etc was to a cinephile like myself a moment of unrivalled ecstasy. However when I became ill my whole world changed as did my perspective on what life really meant. I was no longer happy with the content of the site and I began to write less and less. However in the last few weeks I have finally awoken from my slumber and awoken my army of specially trained ninja monkeys and I am about to bring you the new style of FOF.
You see I figured that if you need a review of Skyfall or The Avengers you're not coming here for it and why would you? I mean the critics at Total Film are not going to see these films on the day of release are they. They'll see them way before and therefore will bring you a decision making review. However I can give you something they rarely do and that's a firm eye on the lesser known gems of cinema. Want to know your Dead Snow from your Norwegian Ninja? Or your Robot Giesha from your Helldriver? Well this will be the place to come. Of course I will give you trailers etc of the big stuff too but will rarely review them. From now on I want you to start seeing the films you always miss. Mainstream cinema generally disappoints nowadays with it's endless fucking remakes as I will show you shortly with three classic fuck ups in the offing and I think you desrve more. So as they say where I come from "sit back, grab your balls and prepare for the ride because it's going to be a weird one". By the way they don't say that at all. Let's go fuckers.
Sometimes you wake to news that makes you just go oh shit! I care little for idiots locked up in embassies or the immature tweeting of premiership footballers but when people who have influenced me and entertained me pass away I always take a moment to reflect. The passing of Tony Scott is indeed a sad moment and the thought that he may have taken his own life resonates with me as it serves a timely reminder that you may seem to have all you want but sadly sometimes things are still missing. Scott was one of Hollywoods finest directors and a real rarity in his ability to remember to sometimes just have some fun with his films. His list of films is a long one and I'm sure many of you have your favourites but as just a taster I love Man On Fire, The Last Boy Scout, True Romance, Unstoppable and the classic that is Top Gun. So wherever you are if you have time in the next few days don't raise a glass but watch one of his films and remember what made him one of my and your favourite directors of the last 30 years. Mr Scott FOF salutes you. R.I.P.
With Snyder and Nolan attached this could be really special but after the badly thought out disaster that was Superman Returns they have their work cut out to reignite interest in the red caped one. However I will say that this is one of the best teaser trailers I've seen in a long time.
Stallone committed the ultimate cardinal sin to Dread fans in 1995's rather fucking poor Judge Dread. I have to say that the new one is looking alot better and it seems the helmet may be staying on. Less glitz more grime. Like Croydon on a saturday night I guess. Anyway this looks like it could have it right so and Urban looks like a good Dread.
I loved Machete as it was fun with a capital fucking F. It would appear that Lady GaGa is in the follow up Machete Kills. Should be interesting.
Over the last few years I have been following the exploits of a character called Jack Reacher in a series of books by Lee Child. For those who don't know Reacher is an ex MP who drofts from town to town and ends up in all kinds of trouble as he discovers corrupt sherrifs, unsolved murders etc. He's a ladies man, hard as fucking nails amd not to be messed with. I've always wanted them to be made into films but struggled with who might play him because you see Reachers real strength is that he's 6'5" and built like the proverbial brick shithouse. So my disappointment has been confirmed in Tom Cruise being given the role. A fucking midget, alien worshipping, sofa bouncing, smiling freak. All I will say is Ben Affleck in Daredevil. This will be shit.
Normally if a hip hop star was to release a film about Kung Fu I would be running for the fucking shadows and hiding there until it was all over. However the man in question is Rza of the Wu Tang Clan who I know has a love for martial arts film that like myself goes beyond obsession. If you know anything about the films of the Asia then watch this and marvel at it because if he has managed to make the whole film this good it could be very fucking special.
