The sequel to Top Gun (1986) will be released in 2019 on my birthday. I saw the original with a bunch of highschool friends, so it will be a trip down nostalgia alley; minus the friends  :(  Anyway, the original made me, naive country boy, dislike Cruise because I figured you can’t play an asshole without being an asshole, and I’d had my fill of assholes by then; but that’s ‘acting’ innit, and Cruise has since redeemed himself. 601 more words

Stake Land (2010, dir. Jim Mickle)

A teen and a grizzled hunter journey across a post-vampire-apocalypse America. An episodic but imaginative spin on the genre, wth plenty of ideas, some clever spins on old tropes, and a fun central performance.
