Apparently his real cult movie is How to Get Ahead in Advertising. Since I can’t find it anywhere on this page. Even Warlock gets a mention.
He’ll move onto movies that haven’t been released yet and then once those run out, the best films that have yet to be made of future years that haven’t happened yet.
Tom, all three of these series of columns have been appointment reading for me the last few years. I really hope you've got another one in the works. Otherwise, I'll have to go back and start Age of Violence over again.
I really want a version of Halloween where, every time he appears, he yells “Hey, look, I’m Michael Myers!”. I’d also accept “Ay, I’m stalkin’ here!”.
“Hey look, I’m Michael Myers!”
“Just kidding! I’m actually a lawyer.”
At least all he got was a citation. The last time I dressed up like Freddy and hung out across the street from an elementary school got me some community service. Oh, and I have to tell you I moved in next door now.
I was a little disappointed that the interview didn’t delve a little deeper into the Frank Sobotka role. A fantastic, conflicted character and a powerhouse performance.
While I was hoping Grundy would show up in the fight scene, the way that Shade came in was spectacular. This was absolutely fantastic—maybe the best episode of the show. The fights were brutal, and violent, and wonderful. Eclipso looks terrifying and evil, and shape-shifting is even better. Is Cindy dead? I assume… Read more
When I started watching this show, I never would’ve expected an episode like this. They’ve exceeded my expectations pretty consistently. When fear crossed Shade’s face, you knew shit was about to hit the fan.
Fuck them. And by them, I mean the Tool fans who you really mean to call out.
I started reading that and then my eyes rolled out of my head and I went blind and couldn’t finish it.
I think of it as the talented vs. skilled dichotomy, myself. Kenny G is immensely skilled and not at all talented, like most shred guitarists, people in tiresome nth-retread regressive “progressive” bands, etc.
Never confuse talent or musical ability with sounding good. There’s tons of highly talented people who make shit music.
Now I wish a bunch of Gregorian monks dropped a hit music video
I was thinking the same thing about The Usher, although it’s a high bar to set. Clancy Brown was/is the most intimidating person alive. It’ll be cool to see Hamish Linklater go full evil, unless the trailer is all misdirects. He always plays these twerpy officious types, but Legion showed that he can get weird when… Read more
I’ll definitely watch it, I guess. The thing is, I like Flanagan. He’s like if Ryan Murphy had the ability to tone it down occasionally. When he’s really in his element, his ratio of camp and actual depth works quite well as entertainment. And he knows how to make something really scary too. Read more
