Prelude to Darkness/Gothic Girl music video featuring Barbara Steele

Our sister site Hollywood Gothique has just posted a music video of a cover version of “Gothic Girl.” Originally recorded by The 69 Eyes, the song has been revamped into a tribute to actress Barbara Steele, who starred in such wonderfully atmospheric Gothic horror movies in the 1960s as BLACK SUNDAY, CASTLE OF BLOOD, THE [...]

Short Subject: Cats vs Zombies

Everything wrong with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

“Everything Wrong with TRANSFORMERS” was so much fun that we just had to let you see the follow-up, “Everything Wrong with TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN.”
The Cinema Sins folks do a wonderful job of nitpicking their way through the sequel, which was even worse than the original – so much worse, that this video [...]

Cinema Sins: Everything Wrong with Transformers

If you have yet to encounter Cinema Sins’ series of “Everything Wrong With…” videos on YouTube, you really should check them out. As the title suggests, Cinema Sins picks apart filmic flaws – usually targeting big-budget blockbusters.

Captain Eo – watch online for free

Anybody remember CAPTAIN EO? I do, because I covered the event’s debut at Disneyland, for Cinefantastique magazine back in 1986. The science fiction short subject starred Michael Jackson as the titular space hero, confronting Anjelica Huston in a wicked Giger-esque makeup as the Supreme Leader.

The Two Spocks – Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto – in Audi Commercial

Very funny stuff. After losing a chess game to Nimoy, Quinto challenges him to a round of golf; the last one to arrive on the course has to buy lunch. Quinto has the edge, because he is driving the new Audi S7, with lots of room in the trunk for his clubs, not to mention [...]

GE Commercial: Robots on the Move, with Robby, Data, B-9 and KITT

This is a couple months old, but I just happened to see it and thought it was worth posting. General Electric teases the announcement of some “brilliant new machines” by showing a parade of familiar movie and TV robots – including Robby, Data. K.I.T.T., and B-9 (i.e., the robot from LOST IN SPACE). Whatever [...]

Avengers director comes out for Romney

Just in the nick of time, with the nationwide election only days away, Joss Whedon (creator of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and director of THE AVENGERS) has recorded a video endorsing Mitt Romney for President. Whedon’s reasoning may strike some mainstream liberals as untenable, but those attuned to the political message in DAWN OF THE [...]
