Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House – Review

As we reach that light-at-the-end-of the-tunnel that concludes the 2017 movie year, theatres are now filled with stories “inspired by true events” and “biopics”. This new release is a bit of both, like last weekend’s Marshall, this tells the story of one man, while focusing on one major event or incident of his long life. Unlike the former Supreme Court justice, this person was not well known by the general public. However, his “nickname” became legendary, thanks in part to a Best Picture Oscar winner. Though the film’s title may sound seem like hyperbole, it presents much evidence to support it in Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House.

We first meet mark Felt (Liam Neeson) on a crisp May morning in 1972 as he readies himself for another day in DC as Deputy Associate Director of the FBI (the number three guy at the Bureau). After

Watch: 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' Takes On 'Mitchell' In Full, Annotated Episode Now Streaming Online

Were it not for "Mystery Science Theater 3000," where would we be as a society right now? The live-tweeting (or live-snarking) of shlock like “Sharknado” owes a great deal to Joel Hodgson’s iconic show, and now a favorite episode of the cult comedy show is finally available for free online. A little over 90-minutes long, this episode is from the show’s fifth season and centers around the 1975 Joe Don Baker-starring cop movie “Mitchell” (this episode also marks Hodgson's final appearance). Thanks to a partnership with Shout Factory, the episode—and all future posted episodes—will contain annotations (from The Annotated Mst) that delve into the MST3K crew’s often obscure jokes. For every easy-to-catch “Shaft” reference, Joel and his robot pals toss off a couple of references to long-since cancelled '70s TV shows, so the annotations should prove useful to younger viewers.

5 Legitimately Good(ish) Movies Turned Into ‘Mystery Science Theatre 3000′ Episodes

Reactions from the talent behind films eviscerated on MST3k have varied (it could be a joke, but the crew claims Joe Don Baker of Mitchell fame wants to take a swing at them), though not as much as fans of the films proper. A famous, though unverified, story has Dennis Miller flying the cast to a filming of his HBO show only to scream at them for having their way with Marooned! In light of the recent announcement that creator Joel Hodgson wants to reboot the cult favourite, here’s a look at a few episodes that may not have been playing fair.

5. Revenge of The Creature (Season 8, Episode 1)

There is a delicate chemistry to enjoying trash on its own merit. Too bad or too good, it can easily throw things off-balance into the oblivion of the unwatchable. Creature upped the stakes of the classic original by bringing it to local beaches and,

Golden Needles – The DVD Review

Joe Don Baker was marketed as a martial arts star in the 1974 actioner Golden Needles, a movie I saw at the Des Peres 4 Cinema back when it was new and haven’t been able to track down since. It had never been released on VHS or DVD so I was psyched to see it’s now out as part of the “MGM Limited Edition” DVD-r series . Before starring in the hit Walking Tall in 1973, Baker had bounced around Hollywood mostly doing TV work . After Kris Kristofferson turned down the role of Buford Pusser, producers offered the role to Baker who had made an impression as Steve McQueen’s younger brother in Sam Peckinpah’s Junior Bonner in 1972.Walking Tall, a true tale about a Tennessee sheriff confronting corruption and gangsters with a large wooden club and a mean attitude, was a surprise success and Baker was soon starring in a

War Movie Mondays: ‘Catch-22′

Catch-22 (1970) is one of those films which falls into several genres. It’s a war film, it’s dramatic, and is considered by many to be a “black comedy.” Mike Nichols directed this screen adaption, which was written by long time collaborator Buck Henry and on the Joseph Heller novel about a group of U.S. Army pilots stationed on a tiny island west of Italy during the tail end of World War II.

Legendary comedic actor Alan Arkin stars as Captain John Yossarian, a veteran bombardier with the fictional 256th Bomber Squadron who are forced to fly countless missions by their commander, Colonel Cathcart (Martin Balsam). Yossarian has flown over twice the required missions allowed by bomber crews before they are eligible to rotate back home for non active duty.

Yossarian feels that the more times he climbs into the nose of his bomber, the more chances he has at dying.
