Now Showing - Ghost in the Shell (2017)


Hello and welcome to another episode of Now Showing, the podcast where I take a single film and review it without all the other bells and whistles of our normal show. For this episode I review the big budget Hollywood live action remake of the classic anime Ghost in the Shell. Is all the controversy surrounding the whitewashed casting deserved? Does it taint the legacy of the 1995 original or does it do it justice? Join me as I give you know my thoughts on the new film.

Top 5 Films Featuring Bill Paxton


Bill Paxton


This list is in no particular order

These are just some of my favorite films that Bill Paxton, the actor and one of the stars of the new film Mean Dreams has been in over the years that I enjoyed either based solely on their performance or it was just a generally well made and enjoyable film that they happened to part of in a supporting capacity.

Bill Paxton was an 80's icon for me. He may not have been the leading man in very man films but every single film he was in he made an undeniable impression. If he wasn't taunting Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first Terminator he was crying game over in Aliens, but the most fascinating thing about the man was his ability to play obnoxiously cocky idiots and make them likeable. Take for instance his small but very memorable role in True Lies as the sleazy playboy used cars salesman whose personality should make us despise him but in fact we love the guy for just how deliciously sleazy and pathetic he is. But Paxton was also a gifted filmmaker with his directorial debut Frailty being both a haunting look at a family torn apart by a unique set of circumstances and also delivering a remarkable twist that would make M. Night Shyamalan envious. Bill Paxton was and always will be fondly remembered for all the fantastic characters he provided to us and these are the films I will always think of first when recalling his extensive and robust body of work both in front and behind the camera.
