True Romance (1993) – Tony Scott

DK Books’ brings me a 90s classic that is on the What Else to Watch list following The Movie Book’s recommendation of Bonnie & Clyde. Directed by Tony Scott, featuring his flashy, gaudy style, and a script by Quentin Tarantino that is rife with his pop culture references and sharp dialogue, True Romance is a…

The Great Digital Film Festival 2016

  I love when this time of year rolls around, because every February, Cineplex puts on their Great Digital Film Festival which tends to showcase some wonderful films from my childhood projected on the big screen in wonderful digital clarity, often mixed with some newer popular titles. This year is no different, running from February…

Top Gun (1986) – Tony Scott

The 101 Action Movies brings this flag-waving American classic back into my life. With Tony Scott’s typical super colour-saturated framing, quick editing, fantastic rocking score, Lt.

I’m sure this creature had lurked around awhile before finding its way to…

We met forĀ an evening of chattageĀ at the Duke of Kent, and we sat there for almost three hours, and recorded for almost…

Remembering Tony Scott – Top Gun (1986)

I was a little stunned when I crawled out of bed Monday morning for what I’m hoping to be a spectacular week only to learn that Tony Scott, noted director and brother of Ridley, took his own life. I’m not going to talk about the man himself, I didn’t know him, but I did enjoy…

Hanging with Axel Foley

I revisited my old friend Axel Foley this weekend. In the 80s the first two were simply awesome, it’s just too bad that they made such a misstep with the 3rd film. The first film directed by Martin Brest, is Eddie Murphy at the height of his hilarity, but for all that, the film isn’t…
