A few years after enacting a disgustingly doomed romance in The Fly, real-life husband-and-wife Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis went on to play a similarly weird but much less doomed couple in Julien Temple’s 1988 cult classic Earth Girls Are Easy. Unlike The Fly, which was dark and deep enough to warrant speculation about its […]

Rest In Peace, Ennio Morricone

There was once a time where I wasn’t into movies. Believe it or not. That all changed when I watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. When I first heard Ennio Morricone’s score. The first odd and jangling notes pierced my ears. It wasn’t like any film score or any music I’d ever heard […]

Forrest Gump: The Movie We Love (To Loathe)

While Growing up, I was often asked about my opinions and recommendations on movies. I was sort of a go to guy for certain films with most people liking my opinions. In my almost 19 years of life, there has been one movie that has haunted my every step .(warning this essay will be exaggerated […]

The Fly (1986)

Synopsis

The AIDS just might be behind cocaine door #3

Director

David Cronenberg

Cast

Jell Goldblumb
Geena Davis
John Getz
David Cronenberg
Leslie Carlson

David Cronenberg’s remake of the (also very good) 50s giant bug movie The Fly added a lot of nuance and subtlety to the themes of the original. “Subtlety” might seem like a strange word to describe a movie in which a gradually decomposing man vomits on his food before eating it, but when it is […]

Director

Jon Stewart

Cast

Steve Carell
Rose Bryne
Chris Cooper
Brent Sexton
Will Sasso
C.J. Wilson

“Irresistible” – Politically correct. The United States Supreme Court has made more than a few boneheaded decisions throughout its not-so-illustrious history. Google “bad supreme court decisions,” grab a very large cup of coffee, and get comfortable for hours of eye-opening reading. The best part of that search is it does not matter where you fall […]

Director

Charles B. Pierce

Cast

Leif Erickson
Woody Stroode
Denver Pyle
L.Q. Jones
Dennis Fimple
Arthur Hunnicutt

A review by Rumpus O’Malley, from somewhere in Texas Hollywood has not been too good about showing the true history of Native Americans in movies. Not at all. It might crank out a Great White Hope movie like Dances with Wolves, where Lt. Costner leads the grateful wagon-burners to glory, that is until they ended […]

Cast

Michelle Morrone
Anna Maria Seiklucka
Bronislaw Wroclawski
Otar Saralidze
Magdalena Lamparska
Natasza Urbanska

365 Days is currently the #1 movie streamed on Netflix. The movie poster that you see is the one that got me banned from Facebook. Yeah. Go figure. Anyway, the movie itself is exponentially more provocative than the poster and is just downright out and out porn. I don’t have anything against porn. I often […]

I had just emerged from the hills on highway 93 at the north end Flathead Lake on the way to Kalispell when I saw the first bumper sticker that read, To Hell With Heaven’s Gate. I was soon to see many more. This was August of 1981. Over a year after the film wrapped, ugly […]
