Go and Snag Yourself This Awesome 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Mondo Poster

Mon, 08/10/2015 - 16:23

The biggest complaint about Mondo's collectible movie posters is that they are just too dang hard to actually buy. For starters, Mondo may announce what day a new poster is going on sale, but they won't tell you what time it'll pop up on the website. So you already have to get lucky on noticing when they go on sale. And even if you do get lucky, the posters are printed up in such small quantities they can sell out in an instant. If there are only 300 copies of a poster for sale, and...

Horror Biopics: Heroes and Villains

Mon, 08/10/2015 - 10:55

By their very nature, horror movies based on true stories are more challenging to get right than outright fantasies. Motion pictures, after all, must be structured dramatically to grab the interest of the viewer and maintain it throughout their running time. And very few horror movies can push past the two-hour mark; the idea is to develop suspense quickly and then maintain the tension, which makes an excessive running time (usually) a bad, exhausting idea. Within those limitations, and the...

Scary '60s Horror Movies That Haven't Aged

Mon, 08/10/2015 - 10:54

Nowadays, relatively few horror movies are made available in wide release theatrically. It's far more often the case that new titles fight for attention via Video On Demand platforms or various streaming services. And we're happy to focus on fresh fright flicks, in search of new talent and new thrills. Still, it's good to be reminded that the best horror movies are timeless, whether digging into common, everyday fears or exploring nightmares that just won't quit. Take, for...

Mon, 08/10/2015 - 05:17

Everyone who saw the hilarious, matchless performances by Bill Murray in the Ghostbusters comedies dreamed that he might one day agree to make another sequel, yet he never exhibited much enthusiasm for the idea. But when rumors began flying last year about the possibility of an all-female version, he was all in favor, stating: "I would go to that movie. They’d probably have better outfits, too.” Murray even named Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig as prospective cast members...

'Fantastic Four' Is Kinda Like Middle School

Mon, 08/10/2015 - 05:00

  Let’s start with the obvious, that everything is a metaphor for middle school, and then we can spin our fantastic tale from there. Fantastic Four if you want to get all Marvel about it. Here’s the thing, I went to middle school and I have a son attending it now. I look back on it fonder than most, according to every movie I have ever seen, and so far my son seems to be making the most of it, too, but it’s different now. I’ve been there. I recognize the...
