Pax, Jaime and Shawn are back this month with the 25th episode of the Cult Film Club.  Since we’ve been sort of on a roll choosing some of our all time favorite flicks, we decided to cap that off with a look at the 1995 neo-noir flick, Hackers. Directed by Ian Softley, and starring Johnny

Investigating the Young Sherlock Holmes novelization…


This past month it was my turn to pick the movie up for discussion on the show, and since we’re in the dead of winter and I just moved up to Maryland and am experiencing boatloads of snow firsthand I wanted to choose something that was sufficiently wintery. I landed on the 1986 flick Young

Cult Film Club Episode 20: Streets of Fire


We’re back with a brand spanking new episode of the Cult Film Club this week, where we collectively crap our pants over the awesomness that is Walter Hill’s “rock & roll fable” from 1984, STREETS OF FIRE!
