The Fog (2005)

And the next remake is....The Fog. According to... well, every movie site in the internet, british director Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata) has already started shooting his version of the classic 1980 John Carpenter film. Carpenter is actually a producer in this film, which, according to himself means he will get payed a lot of money to see one of his old films remade.
Cast will include actors like Tom Welling and Maggie Grace.

Lucio Fulci

and today we celebrate the birthday of the late Lucio Fulci (1927 - 1996). If you don´t have a clue who I am talking about, Fulci was a film director, responsible for horror masterpieces such as "Zombie", "The Gates of Hell", "The Beyond" and "The House by the Cemetery". These films, known by their graphic content, granted Mr. Fulci the nickname of "The Godfather of Gore".

Sin City (2005)

So, do we really need another stylish action movie based on a comic book? if it is this good we really do... Sin City is one of the best films coming out to theather in the last few years... it is brilliantly shot,mostly in black and white (which creates a very dark atmosphere to the film, very similiar to the original comics). There is a lot of CGI effects but these actually make the shots look good instead of making the film look like a video game.
To top this (shock of the shocks) the cast is actually good and does a really amazing job. Especially Bruce Willis, Benicio del Toro and the latest hollywood cuttie Jessica Alba (well, at least this one can act).
One think that helped was the fact that the script was written by Frank Miller himself, the author of the original comics, a man who understands the Sin City world better than anyone. So you take that, and add the incisive and technical style of directing by Robert Rodriguez, and you have yourself one hell of a movie.
If you were unaware of the comic books and liked the film, they are also highly recomended.

Spaced (TV-Series 1999-2001)

so, how about opening up with a little dvd recomendation? Spaced is just one of the many brilliant comedies that came out of britain.
Tim (Simon Pegg) is a low-life who works in a comic-book shop and Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) is a lazy journalist wanna-be... These are forced to divide an apartment and the result of two people that are so different living together has moments of pure gold.
Expect great situation comedy, with beautifully shot references to many great films like Reservoir Dogs, The Shinning, Star Wars, Evil Dead, etc... If you saw Shaun of the Dead and liked it, then this is for you
Note the two great caracters that are Brian and Mike...

As for the best dvd release of the series: try the 3 disc collectors´s edition available at

and I´m out...
