Top Ten 'Coolest 80's Movie Characters' - w/Bonus Terrence 'Critters' Mann Interview!

September 3rd, 2011 1:00pm EDT
Ug from Critters
Growing up as a movie geek, there were many fine flicks and more especially cool characters that had a major effect on me. Be it the tough silent type, the outgoing life of the party, or even the outsider with everything to prove I grew up mesmerized, captivated and ultimately wanting to be like the very epitome of what I had witnessed on the big screen. So in a tribute to the good men (and even women!) of film who molded me into the person I am today, I present this loving non-numbered list (they’re ALL #1 to me!) of the good, bad and ugly characters I adored from my childhood. Plus as ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Scream 4,' 'Rio,' & More

April 11th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Scream 4
After seeing both “Arthur” and “Your Highness” last week, I could not believe how many other critics assigned them either the same score, or gave “Your Highness” a better grade. I found “Arthur” to be quite enjoyable, playing to Russell Brand’s strengths as my review states; while I thought “Your Highness,” was an immature comedy which fails to use raunchy humor effectively.

This week you’ll have the opportunity to see the long-awaited Wes Craven horror sequel “Scream 4,” the Carlos Saldanha animated adventure “Rio,” the off-beat Keanu Reeves comedy “Henry’s Crime,” and "The Conspirator"...

With the arrival of the multi-time repeating, race against the clock fueling, Jake Gyllenhaal starring flick "Source Code" hitting theaters April 1, Starpulse thought it only polite to give a little cinematic love to the movies that utilize the power of time travel. But unlike the vast number of top five favorites lists both big (yes, we all KNOW "Back to the Future" is king!) and small ("Donnie Darko" at #1 – how hip of you!) already in abundance on the net, this is a collection of five hidden gems you may not have heard of. So flux capacitors at the ready readers, cause here are five ri...

31 Days Of Horror: "The Burning" (1981)

October 6th, 2010 12:30pm EDT
The Burning (1981)
With horror movies it’s pretty easy to come up with some bullshit excuse as to why you’re subjecting yourself to what is typically, by almost every conceivable measure, a pretty repugnant piece of shit movie. The Friday the 13th series has an unreasonably fierce puritanical streak, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is about regional tension and the economic repercussions of automating farm labor, and every zombie movie ever is about how we’re the real monsters. 1981’s The Burning is about children getting stabbed to death with garden shears. Oh, and seeing some full frontal 80s girls. That’s it. ...

5 Horror Remakes We'd Like To See

September 11th, 2009 12:14pm EDT
Phantasm
With "Sorority Row" hitting theatres today - a remake of the 1983 slasher classic - it truly seems as if every horror property of the last 30 years has been given a do-over.

From big names (Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers) to cult classics ("Prom Night," "The Hills Have Eyes," "The Last House on the Left"), horror remakes are big business.

But believe it or not, there are a few horror properties out there that haven't been touched, and more importantly, have the potential to be improved by being remade.

Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

At the time of its 1984 release, this fil...
