Disney's Joker...? And unless I'm mistaken, Stone appears to be mimicking Elizabeth Hurley's voice.


One of my all-time favourite movies is Split Second (1992), and when it was first released in cinemas and on VHS the end credits stated 'Harley Stone will return in 'The Tunnel'' as a sequel was planned in which Stone (Rutger Hauer) would tackle terrorists who had seized control of the Channel Tunnel (which was still under construction at the time). Sadly that sequel never happened, and the reference to The Tunnel was removed from the credits of Split Second's subsequent VHS, DVD and BluRay releases. So I suppose this is the next best thing;


Hmm. I remain to be convinced. Despite being produced with the best of intentions, British attempts at large scale action movies always seem to come off as slightly embarrassed and threadbare. Remember Stratton?

I've watched countless Mortal Kombat films and series and they've all disappointed, but this one somehow has me interested.

Have recently become aware of American writer/director Joshua Kennedy, who has spent over a decade making low budget films (at least ten features of varying lengths and several shorts) that are all homages to the genre movies of yesteryear. His work includes Attack of the Octopus People (2010), Curse of the Insect Woman (2011), Voyage to the Planet of Teenage Cavewomen (2012), The Menace with Five Arms (2013), Slave Girls on the Moon (2014), Airport '79 (2015), The Vesuvius Xperiment (2015), Dracula A.D. 2015 (2015), The Night of Medusa (2016), The Return of Sherlock Holmes (2016), The St. Augustus Monster (2016), The Alpha Omega Man (2017), Theseus and the Minotaur (2017), The Fungus Among Us (2018) and House of the Gorgon (2019). Here's the trailer for his latest effort, Cowgirls vs Pterodactyls, which was a troubled production. The three leading actresses are personal friends of Kennedy (they all attended college together and have appeared in most of his previous films) and as he had decided to move permanently to the UK, he wrote the script for Cowgirls vs Pterodactyls specifically for them, so they could all work together one last time before he left the US. Production began in early 2020, but then filming was halted due to Covid 19 and the resulting lockdown, and when Kennedy moved to the UK as planned, the movie was still uncompleted. He promptly finished the film by reworking the script, using the unfilmed scenes to form a subplot about a brand new character played by British scream queen Dani Thompson.



Incidentally, in the shapely form of ex-glamour model and former Babestation presenter Thompson, Kennedy appears to have found his muse. She has leading roles in his two upcoming movies: in Saturnalia - about comic strip characters emerging into the real world - she plays dual roles as the title character (an alien cavewoman) and an arch-villainess; and she's also in Mantopus!, a movie about the making of a monster movie.

The sad thing is that we all know there will be some Americans who will believe this movie to be mostly or at least partly historically accurate. You know the ones I mean. They tend to wear MAGA hats.

To be fair, the effects are supposed to look dated. That's genuine, old school stop-motion animation, none of that fancy CGI malarkey. Kennedy has said Cowgirls vs Pterodactyls is his second Harryhausen homage (the first being 2017's Theseus and the Minotaur).

Only just become aware of this movie. Getting strong John Wick, Shoot 'Em Up and even Kill Bill vibes from the trailer;

Shall I tell you something strange? I'm not a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise - I haven't seen any of the three previous movies, or watched a single episode of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon show, and nor have I read any of the various comic book series, etc. But viewing this trailer still made me teary-eyed. How very odd.

Well I am a fan, I've watched the originals multiple times and watched The Real Ghostbusters when younger (never read any comics mind you, though I have read the film novelisations many, many years ago). I've not seen the reboot film because of lack of interest in reboots (Spiderman notwithstanding but he's my favourite superhero so I'll watch any Spiderman film) and obviously critical reviews. But this looks very much like a faithful sequal and I'm really quite excited by it. Trailers for this, especially this one, just seem right, like it's... Ghostbusters!

I'm suddenly really looking forward to this.

Nicolas Cage can currently do no wrong. He is his own Cinematic Universe.

Yeah, it's quite cool but what I'm really looking forward to (apart from the actual film) is the first trailer on Thursday.

The Batman is looking superb and the Flash has what appears to be The Nolanverse Batcave entrace ... intriguing.

The Friday the 13th movies are a true guilty pleasure of mine. The majority of the films are bloody awful (no pun intended) but I can't help but have a grudging admiration for the series. So here's the trailer for 13 Fanboy, released in America two months ago, but which I've only just become aware of. Directed by actress Deborah Vorhees (who appeared in Friday the 13th Part V), it concerns a rabid Jason fan who starts stalking and killing several of the franchise's most memorable cast members, all of whom play themselves;


And that's not all. Here are two trailers for RoseBlood, a ninety minute fan-film in which Jason faces off for a second time against Tina, the telekinetic Final Girl from Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. Lar Park Lincoln, Terry Kiser and Kevin Spirtas all respectively reprise their roles as Tina, Dr. Crews and Nick from the original movie, and there are also references to characters and locations from Jason Goes To Hell and Jason X.



RoseBlood is free to watch on YouTube.
