Sunday Cinema – “Pelts”

Untitled

 

 

Back in the mid-2000’s, Mick Garris created a series on Showtime called “Masters of Horror“. Featuring short films from some of Hollywood’s greatest directors, each episode was destined to be a modern horror classic.

“Pelts” as directed by horror maestro Dario Argento, finds a furrier (played by Marvin “Meatloaf” Aday” in love with a lady of the evening. In order to win over her affections, he creates the perfect fur coat from some supernatural raccoon hides he stole from some trappers. The pelts, however, have a different idea…

From the second season, this is sure to creep you out and swear you off wearing fur. Some kindly German user posted this episode for all to enjoy…

Sunday Cinema – “Secrets from Another Place”

 

Twin

 

Back in 1990, a phenomenon captured America’s televisions. Bigger than “Who shot J.R.?”, the question on everybody’s mind was “Who killed Laura Palmer?”

Twin Peaks” was a series developed by Mark Frost & David Lynch centering on the arrival of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, who was called in to investigate the murder of Laura Palmer. The small town of Twin Peaks was filled with odd & quirky characters and kept America riveted each week. Before the era of “binge watching” & social media, work & school conversations percolated with theories about what happened to Laura Palmer and Ronette Pulaski and who the murderer was.

This series found merchandising expanding the “Twin Peaks” universe with books such as Laura Palmer’s diary and Special Agent Cooper’s recordings to “Diane”. The soundtrack by Angelo Badalamenti won a Grammy in 1990.

David Lynch and Mark Frost are in the works to revive the series for short run of episodes on Showtime, taking place in Twin Peaks 25 years after the original series ended.

Someone posted the behind-the-scenes documentary about the series for all to enjoy.

Sunday Cinema – “Life on Mars”

 

Life

 

One of Jen the Intern’s favorite television series that was canceled to early. Lasting only 17 episodes, “Life on Mars” was a sort of science-fiction crime show that found Detective Sam Tyler living and working in 1973 NYC after being struck by a car in 2008. The show was very ambiguous in regards to why Sam was in 1973 and the original pilot was rewritten/reshot with different actors.

This is the unaired US pilot of “Life on Mars” with Colm Meaney (of “Star Trek:TNG” fame) in the role of Lt. Gene Hunt, of whom was replaced by Harvey Keitel when the series launched. It is a remake of a successful UK series.

Someone was cool enough to post the unaired pilot on YouTube for you to enjoy!

Career Opportunities” was the movie Matty was trying to remember. One of John Hughes lesser-known movies, best known for its soundtrack which featured a song by Tones on Tail – a side band for Bauhaus member Daniel Ash…

Do we recommend seeing the movie, “Independence Day: Resurgence“? On DVD or at the drive-in theater. It’s good, but not good enough to spend more than a few dollars on…

Sunday Cinema – “Raising Arizona”

 

Raising

 

H.I. McDunnough is a career criminal. Edwina is the police officer that loves him. Upon their marriage the pair realizes that they cannot conceive a child. Stealing one of a set of quintuplets from a wealthy tycoon (after all, they have other children), the pair is on the run from friends, co-workers, & a feral bounty hunter out to capture the child for their own purposes.

Filled with action, comedy, & some sweet moments, this is a definite “must-see” from 1980’s cinema.

One of Jenn the Intern’s favorite movies, someone posted their “videoing the TV” version of this classic for others to enjoy…
