WHAT WE LEFT UNFINISHED - Film and TV Now

A timely film about the lost films of the territory - directed by the daughter of the President of Afghanistan.

There is an old adage in Hollywood that films are never finished, but abandoned and another is the camera never lies (somewhere there’s a song in that – and there was a Number One in the UK by the Eurovision champions Buck’s Fizz!) Hollywood has often portrayed the world of Afghanistan as a po...

Film and TV Now Looks Back At Talented Director Richard Donner

Six years ago I wrote this article for Film and TV Now.

In honour of Richard Donner, who died at the age of 91 on July 5th, 2021, here it is again:

With a 30th Anniversary release of the 1985 hit THE GOONIES, people are now reminded of the pedigree and legendary talent of veteran director Richard Donner

Anyone who has loved a super-hero movie recently in the DC or MCU should pay tribute to Richard Donner, who defined the modern Superhero yarn with the 1978 classic SUPERMAN - THE MOVIE :-)

Director-producer Richard Donner, best known for helming the “Lethal Weapon” film series, “The Goonies” and the original “Superman” film, died on Monday. He was 91. Donner’s produ…

Rumble in the Bronx Soundtrack - 1.Main Title

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkAiffOyJj0

THEME OF THE WEEK

Fond memories of watching this in 1996 as part of National Cinema Weekend, in which all tickets were £1 - saw it Friday night at the Odeon Leicester Square sometime in March,

Great film that reignited Jackie Chan's American career after two misfires with BATTLE CREEK BRAWL (1980) (AKA THE BIG BRAWL in the UK) , directed by Robert Clouse (ENTER THE DRAGON) and THE PROTECTOR (1985) , directed by James Glickenhaus (THE EXTERMINATOR)

This movie is well worth watching for some incredible stunts and the end credit sequence in which we see some of the stunts that go wrong to get the ones that do go right.
