The Lost Boys Review

The Lost Boys Studios: Warner Bros Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now  Overview I’ll be honest, I’d never heard of Lost Boys before I saw it on the In the House line up when they announced the new season. Although I skimmed over the synopsis on the Wikipedia page, I largely went into it blind so I could bring you my opinion completely fresh. I was confident that the good people at In the Hous...

In The House Season 7.5 Starts Next Week

Season 7.5 of In the House will be starting up next week with their screening of The Matrix. We’re long time fans of the folks at In the House here at Capsule Computers and the new season has a pretty awesome line-up with the Kill Bill double feature night being especially enticing. Personally, I think it’s great that cult classics are getting another theatrical run for those of us who...

Edward Scissorhands Review

Edward Scissorhands Studios: 20th Century Fox Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Burton holds a place in the hearts of many a young person with alternative a penchant for “alternative” aesthetics. His films such as Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride, and Sweeney are pretty much a staple of any self-respecting goth and emo kids. Edward Scissorhands is considered one of his greatest works and m...

Escape From New York Review

Escape From New York Studios: AVCO Embassy Pictures Platforms: Cinema  Release Date: Out Now Overview Directed by the cult cinema director John Carpenter, Escape from New York occupies an interesting place in the pop culture landscape. It is, by most measures, an above average piece of shlock cinema. It really should not have had the lasting appeal it has found but, in spite of this, it has found ...

The Godfather Part II Studios: The Coppola Company Publisher: Paramount Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview As those of you who read us would know, I very much enjoyed watching the original Godfather on the big screen as part of an In the House screening.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Review

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Studios: Amblin Entertainment Publisher: Universal Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview The names that are almost synonymous with the word “Hollywood” are Lucas, Bay, Tarantino, and Spielberg to name a few.

Fight Club Review

Fight Club Studios: Fox 2000 Pictures, Regency Enterprises, Linson Films Publisher: 20th Century Fox Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Fight Club is one of those cult films which I was absolutely obsessed with in my misspent youth. I loved the film’s style, tone, and anti-capitalist message which all struck a chord with me as I came into my prime. Unfortunately, I had never gotten t...

The Untouchables Review

The Untouchables Studios: Paramount Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview There is probably no prohibition era gangster more famed in popular culture than the ostentatious Al Capone. He was the crime kingpin who organised the infamous Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre where he had all of his rivals killed off in broad daylight. Although Capone was flying high and mighty during his...

Stand by Me Review

Stand by Me Studios: Act III Productions Publisher: Columbia Productions Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Stand by Me, directed by Rob Reiner, is considered a classic ‘coming-of-age’ film by many. Being somewhat of a Rob Reiner fan (I loved This is Spinal Tap and the Princess Bride), I had to go see this film. Alongside that, it also starred a (very) young Wil Wheaton so I had to g...

Gattaca Review

Gattaca Studios: Jersey Films Publisher: Columbia Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview I am a huge fan of writer/director Andrew Niccol. Although his body of work is not nearly as prolific as some other luminaries who grace the bill at In the House, he does have some fairly strong entries with his 2005 film Lord of War being my all-time favourite film. I’d seen Gattaca a numbe...
