Old Movie Review – Somewhere in the Night

Every now and then I like to review a movie that doesn’t get much attention these days.

Somewhere in the Night – Often packaged on DVD as that now coolest of genes the ‘Noir’ Somewhere…. really doesn’t fit into this category.  It has elements of the noir such as the difficulty of the returning soldier to fit into society, a sort of femme fatale, psychological trauma but in the end it’s more a straight ahead crime film.

Top 5: Wrestlers in the Movies

I’m a geek, geeks like top 5 lists so here’s another top 5.

Uncool though it maybe something about professional wrestling fascinates me, not just the wrestling itself but the characters who live their whole public lives in character.

Professional wrestling is a performance and so it follows that some wrestlers have crossed over into the movies, be it due to a part that requires a larger than life physique, represents a marketing opportunity or in some cases have genuine acting talent.  So here’s a top five professional wrestlers in the movies.

Weird Movie of the Week: Amerigeddon

Have you ever clicked through IMDB.com, a b-movie website or some other corner of the internet and by chance find a bizarre movie or oddity and all you can think is why would this movie exist?  These are those movies….

Anyone remember Starship Troopers the crazy sci-fi action flick from Paul Verhoeven?  Well in 1997 it was a pretty decent action movie with some young stars that people thought would be staring in future films.  Whatever happened to Dina Meyer for example?

Well in 2016 she is staring in Amerigeddon directed by Chuck Norris eldest son which according to IMDB is “A dire warning of a wakeup call of what might be our future when a globalist terrorist organization aligned with the United Nations disables the United States power grid and institutes Martial Law. It will take a dedicated family of patriots armed with strong survival skills and the remains of the Second Amendment to save America and reclaim its freedom”

Who is Ray?

Before producing this film blog Ray started out in a locally successful music duo in Chicago, after the group ran afoul of the law in a minor misunderstanding Ray fell back on his college education and took a job with Duke and Duke commodities brokers in Philadelphia.  Although Ray made a healthy profit Duke and Duke folded in the frozen orange juice scandal the media dubbed ‘juicegate’.  He moved on from Philly and invested his profits into a moderately successful pest control business in New York.  After the company wound down due to a complex legal battle over an answer to the question ‘are you a god?’ Ray decided the time was right to leave New York behind.

There can be only one introduction

I will start by saying I love film, the movies, the flicks or whatever you want to call it.

There’s a magic there an escape into another world or a shock that will give you a new perspective and an influence that perhaps we don’t even realise be it the thrills and spills of Hitchcock, the crass 1980’s machismo of Arnie, the Parisian cool of Godard or the snappy wise ass dialogue of Tarantino.

But do you know what my favourite movie ever is?

Highlander.

For those who have never seen it Highlander is an action / fantasy film from 1986, the story revolves around a number of immortals who can only be killed if their head is cut from their body.  Down the centuries they fight one another for ‘the prize’, Connor MacLeod is one such immortal born in Scotland in the 16th Century now living in modern day New York.
