Almost every cinema lover has his/her Christmas favourite that he/she likes to revisit on an annual basis as if it's part of a tradition. Preferred choice for most is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life, for some it's John McTiernan's Die Hard & for few it's Chris Columbus' Home Alone but, considering the weirdo that I am, the one I keep revisiting on this festive day is Monty Python's Life of Brian.
One of the funniest, silliest & craziest films of all…
Wishing each and every one of you a much better Christmas than this lot got.
I love you all enough to not want you to be slaughtered by a homicidal maniac.
Unless you do not love, cherish and adore this film. Then you can get the dry cleaner plastic ready.
Anyways, merry Christmas!

I live for moments like this.
Angus Schrimm's presence on screen is both frightening and demanding. The only thing scarier than him is his metal ball. I weep for all the people around the world unfortunate enough to have encountered Phantasm and The Tall Man during their childhood. Must be a real struggle, living in fear.
I truly cannot say this enough. Put whatever you have in your hands down. Go find a copy of this (preferably on blu-ray). Shut off all the lights in your house. Turn off your phone. Send your family away for two hours. Jesus, Joey just enjoy the work of a true master. It's the unadulterated, beautiful, brutal, sad and honest look at what is a part of us, violence.
This is one of the great films of the 21st century. Please, I beg of you. Go watch this today.
In 2005 my friend and I went to a theater, bought tickets to a movie (probably Fever Pitch or something) and opened every door until we found Sin City. I had been obsessing over the trailer and knew, with its more-than-unique style and incredible cast, that I had to see it on the big screen. It did not disappoint.
Three years later (in 2008) me and that same friend when to the same theater, excited to see Frank Miller's newest…
Emmet the LEGO as Peter Quill an outlaw cowboy space pirate ladies man with a code name who leads a group of misfits known as the Guardians of the Galaxy against an evil guy who will stop at nothing to destroy the universe. This group of misfits includes a sexy green chic, a tree creature, a talking raccoon, a WWE wrestler, and the best part is they turn the MCU world upside down in one of the best summer blockbusters…
John Carpenter's "Big Trouble in Little China" is one of the best comic book movies ever made. The fact that the film is actually not based on a comic book is beside the point, because, with its square-jawed hero, heightened dialogue, and characters with names like Gracie Law and Egg Shen, "Big Trouble in Little China" feels comic book-inspired. Its energy, memorable characters and dialogue, and abundance of adventure resemble something born on colorful, two-dimensional, paneled pages. Regardless of where…
There are some movies that are so "cult" that even regular film fans wouldn't have even heard of them. That's exactly how I felt last year when I saw Vanishing Point for the very first time. It was a bolt from the blue, a true revelation, a stunningly cool and subversive movie that I simply loved. Richard C Sarafian also turned a 1970 Dodge Challenger into another of those cars to purchase when that lottery win arrives.
Barry Newman became…
Priests say their prayers
Doctors do their jobs
people live their lives
And one poor Ellen Burstyn is hanging around the city
from hospitals to churches
with her sunglasses on
searching for a solution
for her poor girl's problem
daughter's body is Satan's home now
nothing is safe to this woman and people around her
Not much time left for them
Still , this creepy thing is happening on a day like all the other days .
Not that I…
