Faux grindhouse with some 8mm post-processing damage was never my thing, but how can we say no to a water starved world where the cars run on blood? There's cannibals, Amazons, monsters, toe sucking, and I think I saw a magician in there. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 04.21.17] scifi drama mystery

Last year's "The X-Files" revival brought with it both good and bad. It was great to see Scully and Mulder back at it, solving cases, asking questions and generally just being awesome as more seasoned agents dragged into more of the weird shenanigans that brought them together in the first place. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Rian Johnson (Looper) directs the follow-up to J.J. Abrams' franchise re-starter, The Force Awakens.

And of course once the wrappers are lying shredded on t... [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 04.13.17]

Almost that time of year again: Cannes. Though it's not the first festival of the year it's certainly one of the biggest in terms of setting up what we can expect to look forward to (or avoid) for the remainder of the year and this year's festival is certainly shaping up to be an interesting one.

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 04.13.17] horror drama

One of the better adaptations of Stephen King's work from the last decade (celebrating 10 years!) is Frank Darabont's brilliant and terrifying The Mist. The adaptation of King's 200-page novella certainly took things to a dark place and now Danish show-runner Christian Torpe is traveling down a similar path with his take on the material.

It's a typical boring night on patrol for small-town police officer Daniel Carter (Aaron Poole) until a man covered in blood (Evan Stern) stumbles out of the woods directly in front of him.

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 04.04.17]

Love him or hate him, one can't deny the fact that Jason Blum has developed a winning formula for his movies and, arguably, beat Roger Corman at his own game: make lots of little movies for cheap and mathematically, one or two of them are bound to make up for any lost revenue from the rest. It's a formula that has made Blum rich and more importantly, powerful in the w... [Continue reading]
