The Films That Made Me: Rear Window (1954, USA)

The Films That Made Me: Rear Window (1954, USA)

Rear Window was the movie that introduced the young Ren to the perverse genius of Alfred Hitchcock. I remember as a child, being irresistibly drawn into the voyeuristic position of his protagonist and fascinated by the goings-on in the windows he was observing. Hitchcock claimed not to care about the subject, morality or message in his movies, but only about the manner in which his stories were told, but his attraction to the psychological was one of his most obvious storytelling strengths.

“Through his rear window and the eye of his powerful camera he watched a great city tell on itself, expose its cheating ways…and murder!”

The Films That Made Me: Alien (1979, UK / USA)

The Films That Made Me: Alien (1979, UK / USA)

In 2020 it’s impossible to approach Ridley Scott’s 1979 film Alien as a first-time viewer and feel anything resembling its original impact. Everyone has seen Scott’s vision of space taken up by countless sci-fi films and most people know each of Alien’s iconic scenes, whether they’ve seen the entire film or not. After several Alien sequels and spinoffs, countless imitators, and the wholesale cinematic plundering of Giger and Scott’s visual sci-fi language, it is hard for latter generations to imagine a time in science-fiction before Alien – a time before face-huggers, chest-bursters, and strong heroines.

“Sometimes the scariest things come from within.”

The Films That Made Me: The Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup (1933, USA)

The Films That Made Me: The Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup (1933, USA)

Duck Soup is a 1933 pre-Code Marx Brothers film universally acknowledged as a comedy classic. It’s a movie which ridicules the leader of a country whose narcissism and rivalry manages to horrify, amuse or infuriate the international community and pushes him to create division and conflict.

Hmm… I guess some topics are simply evergreen. Yet, like so many film ‘classics’ Duck Soup hasn’t necessarily been viewed by people who consider themselves cinephiles, comedy fans or movie buffs.

“War is swell…when the Marx Brothers are in it. They’ll be out of the trenches by Christmas…if the food doesn’t improve!”

Examining Superhero Films Pre-The Avengers (2012)

More superhero films now hit our cinema screens after the success of The Avengers (2012), and financially most of them make a killing. However, they are not without their detractors, pointing out how they are formulaic and lacking depth. But what about the superhero films before the post-2012 boom?

Mutant Blast (2018, Portugal / USA) Review

Mutant Blast (2018, Portugal / USA) Review

From the moment Mutant Blast entered my psyche I couldn’t shake this nostalgic feeling I was having. Distributed by the legendary purveyors of bad taste, Troma Entertainment, it is undeniable that the golden age of this independent studio has left an impression on director Fernando Alle. Mutant Blast is a low-budget, gore-drenched, post-apocalyptic action/horror film that evokes the Class of Nuke ‘Em High-style of gross-out humour.

“Dolphins are diabolical creatures! But you can’t wrap that around your heads, because you think dolphins are cute… The truth is, dolphins are motherfuckers! MOTHERFUCKERS!”
