  • I think I understand Dimi, but I feel that is ok for Friday The 13th to stay in its lane, and not try to reinvent the wheel. The 3 key musts, that I feel are important are 1) a physically imposing actor to play Jason that can act with their body …

  • Did she just use 'Toxic Masculinity' with a straight face? That is one of those phrases that I can no longer take seriously. She might as well be dressed as Ronald McDonald.

  • You'll have to excuse my cynicism, but i'll believe this when it happens. For a new film to enter production, let alone make it to filming, both Cunningham and Miller have to set aside their differences. Of course, it is possible that with both part…

  • Eddie Murphy was brilliant as Rudy Ray Moore. I have seen Dolemite (and Human Tornado), and I never gave any thought that there might have been this hard a fight to get the original film made. It's easy to laugh at Dolemites technical shortcomings, …

  • Glad you liked it, @Creasy47. Welcome to the club. The spy thriller / contemporary Dracula mashup really appeals to me. And I absolutely love the cast; from Cushing and Lee, to Michael Coles, Richard Vernon, William Franklyn, Joanna Lumley, Fredd…

  • Without Remose I have only a small watch collection, and this is the first film I have seen that features the same make/model as one I own. Kelly's Casio G-Shock GW7900B-1ER. A stealthy looking beast of a watch.

  • Was Sanchez trying to make a DC film on the side? ;)

  • I am not going to mention the 'w' word, but how bad would a film be, for the studio to be willing to write of it's $70M-$100M cost? Other studios release bad films. Warner Bros.:

  • @Creasy47 Both Dracula AD 1972, and Satanic Rites Of Dracula also feature someone from the Bond franchise. What did you think of Dracula: prince Of Darkness?
  • As a long time fan, going back to the days of Lara Croft, dressed in a bikini and sunglasses, appearing on bottles of Lucozade. It was about time that I got around to watching this film, inspired by the 2013 reboot. I liked this more that I though I…
  • Thanks everyone. @Benny is another '05 member, October, I think. There's a few of us forum dinosaurs still creaking around the place, not ready to be pensioned off just yet. ;)
  • 17 years ago today, I joined up on the old forum. For years, I believed it to be the 31st, but according to the Way Back When Machine, I actually signed up on the 30th.
