  1. This has just been delayed by a full year, and won’t release until summer 2023
  2. Arguably the best top ten of the 1980s - though 83 and 85 will run it a very close race. Apart from the triple hits of Temple of Doom, Ghostbusters and Gremlins, we've got Romancing the Stone, Footloose and The Karate Kid. Perhaps even more incredible is Beverly Hills Cop, which had only opened in December 1984 and still made enough money to break in at number seven. It would remain in the charts long into the next year and end up being the biggest R-rated comedy for many, many years to come. Outside the top ten - The Terminator, Red Dawn, Conan the Destroyer and The Last Starfighter. There's also a huge amount of pictures that would go on to become cult classics - Buckaroo Banzai, Streets of Fire, Top Secret and The Ice Pirates. 1984 also saw the debut of Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm St. Until 1985....
  3. If you're looking forward to, or even slightly interested in the new Scott Derrickson directed Ethan Hawke film, The Black Phone, maybe give the trailer a skip.
  4. Another solid year for releases, with the likes of Trading Places, Risky Business, Wargames and Return of the Jedi. Outside the top ten we have Krull, Jaws 3D, Blue Thunder and Never Say Never Again. I miss the days of voice overs and 'Starring..'. And Ally Sheedy in Wargames is still the cutest. Feel free to subscribe - I post once a week, won't spam you with notification or anything like that.
  5. I did enjoy that section in VHS 94. Perfect aesthetics and the lead was excellent. Wasn’t quite sure where it would go. The shot of Not as good as his VHS2 section, but worth seeing. And you could just skip to that section, the single films don’t have any real bearing on the bookends.
  6. And now I'm interested. The VHS2 section was excellent, and I loved his work on The Night Comes For Us.
  7. An absolutely incredible year, and one in which what didn't make the top ten is possibly more interesting than what did. The chart consists of E.T, Star Trek II, Poltergeist and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Raiders was actually released in 1981 but stayed on general release into 1982, so was included in that year's total instead. Outside the top ten - Blade Runner, The Thing, First Blood, Tron, Firefox and Conan The Barbarian. And if you've never seen it, I highly recommend Poltergeist.

    I think if I’d left it six months, it would have given a better first impression.

    Wow, going straight into Dead Space 3 was a mistake.
  10. Oh god yes! I think just trusted packs is 400gb.
  11. That font on Openshot doesn't seem to allow lower case. I am trying to learn Davinci Resolve. Or I'll switch fonts.

    I finally got round to playing this, having had it in my steam library for some years. A really enjoyable and satisfying game, with only a few blips towards the end. Given it's age, it still played and looked remarkably great, combined with some solid lighting and brilliant sound effects. I only got so far in DS1, and kept hitting a wall, but this one kept me interested and coming back throughout its runtime. The limb slicing is still a wonderful mechanic, and while I wasn't sure I wanted Isaac to talk this time around, it did mostly work well. While the first game gave a sense of serious foreboding, this one was happy to throw you into the chaos from the get-go. The weapons and suit were still excellent, the creatures the stuff of nightmare, and while the story was hokey, it all worked together to make a good experience. I think the only downside was the final few chapters, which seemed to more about running through corridors than fighting or exploring, which was a a bit of shame, but still not really that disappointing, Well worth playing through. And still the most satisfying foot stomp of any game.
  13. This latest video looks at the top ten box office hits of 1981. Featuring trailers from the likes of The Cannonball Run, Endless Love, Superman II and Stripes. I've also included trailers from other notable releases of the year that didn't quite make the top ten, including Time Bandits and An American Werewolf in London. Interesting that Raiders of the Lost Ark was released in the middle of 1981 but because it was on general release for so long, was actually included in the 1982 top ten instead. This time round I've included a spoiler warning as many of the trailers reveal a great deal about their respective film. The Endless Love trailer looks to be a good chunk of the film, For Your Eyes Only shows the death of a major villain and the Superman II reveals his return. The American Werewolf trailer reveals almost everything. Perhaps out of context they don't mean much but still. And here's a link to the 'Great' movie moments playlist
  14. Goddammit. I've looked at the things for so long I got word blindness Better still, the same error is in the new video that has just finished rendering. I'll re-render this 1981 video, then fix this one.
  15. How long do these take to arrive? I'd need to get one shipped to the UK, then posted to Australia by my sister.
