Trailer Tracks: Insomnia (2002) – Christopher Nolan

  Robin Williams. Everyone thinks he was just a comedian, but he was a Julliard trained actor, and he could bring out his dramatic chops when he needed to, and he went head to head with Al Pacino in Nolan’s thriller…

Trailer Tracks: Hook (1991) – Steven Spielberg

  Continuing my nod to Robin Williams… I’m still trying to process the fact that he’s gone… here’s a film that I so related to him in. I’ve always been young at heart, and definitely like to keep my inner child alive, so there’s a Peter Pan quality there… and his rediscovery of that in…

Trailer Tracks: Good Morning, Vietnam (1987) – Barry Levinson

  I was more than a little stunned, when last night halfway through our show, we learned of the death of Robin Williams. This was a man who had been a huge influence on me growing up, especially through my 20s and early 30s… I watched every film and show he made, whether it was…

Trailer Tracks: Flatliners (1990) – Joel Schumacher

  I came out of this movie wanting to try this… seriously. I think it would be kind of cool. And hey, this is before Schumacher ruined Batman… It has a fantastic cast, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, andĀ Oliver Platt. I still like this one a lot!

Trailer Tracks: Hellraiser (1987) – Clive Barker

  I love Clive Barker’s writing, it’s dark, disturbing, and gets under your skin. When I first heard about his directing a film, I was anxious, and honestly, couldn’t watch some of the sequences… Even now this film can creep and trouble, and it’s still amazing, bloody, unnerving, and while the series has continued and…

Trailer Tracks: High Road to China (1983) – Brian G. Hutton

  When Universal exercised its contract with Tom Selleck, he missed out on the opportunity to play Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, but he did have the brilliantly successful television series Magnum, P.I. to make up for it. During a hiatus, he shot this period piece action adventure film with Bess Armstrong…

Trailer Tracks: King Solomon’s Mines (1985) – J. Lee Thompson

  In the early 80s, thanks to Raiders of the Lost Ark, the high adventure movie was seeing a huge comeback, and everyone was trying to cash in on it. And they thought it would be a great idea to bring back H. Rider Haggard’s Alllan Quartermain to the screen again. Starring Richard Chamberlain, Sharon…

Trailer Tracks: Supergirl (1984) – Jeannot Szwarc

  This movie is so bad. Maybe not Quest of Peace bad, but it’s up there. Though having said that, the International cut is much better than the North American one, and also created a huge crush for me on the Supergirl character (yes I know she’s not real). Helen Slater, Peter O’Toole and Faye…
