Some movies exist solely to entertain. Meaning there are films that strive to be original, groundbreaking and go beyond the norm and then there are those that simply want to satisfy with story and style. The new heist picture that’s a cross between "Ocean’s Eleven" and "The Thomas Crown Affair" entitled "The Art Of The Steal" is one such well meaning flick – a clever yet accessibly good time at the movies.

Radical Retro Movie Review: John Carpenter’s “The Thing”

10/31/2011 8:33pm EDT
The Thing
Happy Halloween! Welcome to this surprise Radical Retro Movie Review. Recently I was thoroughly disappointed by “The Thing,” a prequel to the John Carpenter film by the same name. Since the 2011 counterpart turned out to be such a dud, I thought I should revisit the 1982 version and discuss what still makes it such a compelling masterpiece today.

What most people don’t know, is that John Carpenter’s “The Thing” was actually a remake of a 1951 film called “The Thing from Another World,” which was based itself, on a short story by John W. Campbell Jr. Carpenter was able to effectively ...

Hollywood success sent Goldie Hawn into therapy for nine years - because she felt like a prisoner of Tinseltown.

The actress had no plans to become a film star when she first came to Los Angeles to work as a dancer - but movie executives liked her look and her spirit and she was on the fast-track to superstardom before she had the chance to catch her breath.

It’s been joked that the Internet acted as casting director for Sylvester Stallone’s muscle and explosion symphony The Expendables. Setting out to create a who’s who of action stars of the past 30 years, Stallone cobbled together a cadre of modern stars like Jet Li and Jason Statham along with a healthy stable of direct-to-video relics like Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts to form his retro team of ‘roided up ass-kickers. But when looking at the film’s full cast, and its heavy reliance on muscle-heads from the worlds of MMA, professional wrestling and the NFL, it’s hard to shake the nagging ...
