Blockbuster Films, post-Covid: “What You Need To Know” Movie Hub

  We all like a bit of news, gossip, rumor, and speculation about movies! Now that it seems like the world is returning to normal after a terrible pandemic, there is a new fervor surrounding film and TV releases. Sometimes there just isn’t time to read long, flowing articles that speculate on what’s coming over […]

Dune: Part 2 – What You Need To Know About the Dune Sequel

When Dune came out in 2021 it was to favourable reviews. It earned $401.8m against a spend of $165m despite being released during the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those two factors were enough to guarantee a sequel. What is Dune: Part 2? Fairly obviously, it is a direct sequel to Dune. This time […]

Movie Review – Dune

I’ve read the Dune series more times than I remember. And I’ve seen every video adaption made, numerous times. I can come close to quoting the character’s dialog line-for-line. Therefore, I can only review the movie from the standpoint of a fan. I realize most people who see the movie haven’t read the books, and […]

Best of British Biographies – Toby Jones

Last year I wrote an article about Timothy Spall; one of those actors who you see in lots of character roles. Here’s another such actor. Sometimes small roles, sometimes big roles; always noticeable because he doesn’t look like your stereotypical leading man. In fact, he is what you might think of as — and I’m […]

No Time To Die release date reset to November due to CoVid-19.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: “Blockbuster movie gets a new release date”

You know what this reminds me of? The lyrics from the classic rock song Fly Like an Eagle: Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping… Into the future. Except replace time with release dates: Release dates keep on slipping, slipping, slipping… Into the future. When will this end? When theaters can be packed. There’s no way for that […]

Dune – What is the Litany Against Fear (and why should we care)?

Can an old science fiction book from the 60s offer modern man any surfeit from pain? Do we allow fears — both great and small — to rule our lives? Can  we train ourselves to be greater than our anxieties? I’d say yes, although I’ve yet to achieve this enlightened state myself. But, there’s this: […]

Yes, it’s about Dune – The Lyrics to Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice

If you know anything at all about Dune, the grand brick-sized novel by Frank Herbert, you know there are gigantic, dangerous, and strangely helpful Sandworms featured in it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan or hater of the Lynch movie version, Sy Fy’s mini-series, or the potential interpretation by Jodorowsky. One thing they all […]

Can Dune be done? Should Dune be done? Bringing Long Books to the Screen

Until the last generation, when Peter Jackson proved The Lord of the Rings could not only be made into a successful film — but be so off-the-charts good that it took home 11 Oscar Awards — it was unheard of to succeed at translating most of the great sci-fi and fantasy epics of literature to […]

What is a MacGuffin? Top Movie MacGuffins, Explained

A MacGuffin is any object that drives the plot and motivates the characters in a movie. You might have seen the name “MacGuffins” over bar bistros in the lobbies of many AMC theaters. That’s an industry in-joke. It sounds like the name of an Irish pub, but it’s really a nod to a long standing […]
