Not your average Poe: An Audience with Jeffrey Combs by Kent Hill

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, over Men at Work and why can’t they make a sequel. While I feasted on potato chips nearly napping, suddenly there came a rapping, turns out it was Herbert West a-rapping, at my chamber door. I just want to go on the record and … Continue reading Not your average Poe: An Audience with Jeffrey Combs by Kent Hill

Lunch with Immortan Joe by Kent Hill

Dolly Parton once said, “If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” I like to muse that this was going through the mind of my distinguished guest and Ozploitation luminary, Hugh Keays-Byrne. And my reason behind this thinking – … Continue reading Lunch with Immortan Joe by Kent Hill

GLORIOUS FURIOSITY: An Interview with Tamas Nadas by Kent Hill

In this current climate where blockbusters saturate the public consciousness, it is encouraging indeed to see there is still an independent movement – and not only is it alive, but it is flourishing. One of the brightest stars in our indie cinematic heaven at the moment is the fiercely-driven man of many talents, Mr Tamas … Continue reading GLORIOUS FURIOSITY: An Interview with Tamas Nadas by Kent Hill

Walking with Titans by Kent Hill

Alexander Nevsky – мой друг суперзвезда. What can I tell you? He is a dynamic performer with a physically commanding presence. He is a champion bodybuilder. He is a writer, director and producer whose films I find not only entertaining, but also made in a fashion which speaks to my love of the great action movies … Continue reading Walking with Titans by Kent Hill

The Man who would be Cage: An Interview with Marco Kyris by Kent Hill

I feel like I’m somehow getting closer to Nicolas Cage. I’ve spoken to a man who has directed him – a man who has “Nic-polished” his scripts. So, you can image my delight when Marco Kyris, Cage’s stand-in from 1994 till 2005, agreed to not only have a chat, but also to give me a … Continue reading The Man who would be Cage: An Interview with Marco Kyris by Kent Hill

“I never touched a legend before.” : Remembering Nightbreed with Nicholas Vince by Kent Hill

Seems to me NIGHTBREED had been out for a while before I made a point of sitting down to watch it. I’d seen the trailer a bunch of times, been curious, but it wasn’t until I read the illustrated screenplay that I admit to really becoming hell bent on checking it out. It is at … Continue reading “I never touched a legend before.” : Remembering Nightbreed with Nicholas Vince by Kent Hill

It’s hard to know who to trust, isn’t it, Jack? : Remembering Cocoon with Tom Benedek by Kent Hill

What’s strange is, for the longest time, I had only ever seen the final scenes of Cocoon. A sea covered in mist, a young boy in the water, a boat loaded with elderly people being chased. Then the sky above lights up. The clouds part majestically as James Horner takes over and the ship ascends … Continue reading It’s hard to know who to trust, isn’t it, Jack? : Remembering Cocoon with Tom Benedek by Kent Hill

Chasing Tarantino: An Interview with Con Christopoulos by Kent Hill

What price do you put on a dream? How much do you give, day after lonely day, on the steady climb toward that magical vision that no one else can see . . . but you? The truth is we all started that way. Then you learn that if you dream in one hand and … Continue reading Chasing Tarantino: An Interview with Con Christopoulos by Kent Hill

At play in the Fields of Cullen: A Look at the Director’s Cut of London Fields by Kent Hill

I must confess I am in the same boat as my learned colleague Mr. (Paul) Rowlands of money-into-light.com, when it comes to an interest in films marked by some form controversy. Well, not solely controversy, but the types of films that have been long-suffering passion projects finally seeing the light of day, or long overdue … Continue reading At play in the Fields of Cullen: A Look at the Director’s Cut of London Fields by Kent Hill

Hey Bill, glad you’re back: Behind The Taking of Tiger Mountain by Kent Hill

The first film I thought of while the early moments of Tiger Mountain played before me was THX 1138. This was a trip, dragged forcefully against one’s will and plunged into a murky pond which is a kind of metaphoric representation of being removed from the light and air and smothered by naked oppression and … Continue reading Hey Bill, glad you’re back: Behind The Taking of Tiger Mountain by Kent Hill
