    Gene Hackman Ranked

    Hackman #20

    Zandy's Bride has a nice folky score and good performances from both Hackman and Liv Ullman. Set in the old frontier and directed by Swedish filmmaker Jan Troell

    Horroctober 2021

    There was a time between 1997 and 1999 that if you had asked me what the best film ever made was, I’d have told you Scream. It’s influence on my discovery of movies, and horror specifically, was monumental. Scream was the catalyst to so many films; Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street and so many more. I’ve seen it innumerable times, yet somehow when I watch Scream I still notice new things. Last year when…
