If you’re like me and could not make it to the infamous San Diego Comic-Con this year, and you need to get your up-to-the second fix, I’ve put together a list. Yes, a list – a list of the competition – a list of twitter accounts from other movie websites so you can get your instant SDCC movie news.
TwittaFlicks #499 – Yojimbo (1961) – Hammet-inspired Samurai epic, partially responsible for ‘spaghetti western’. Mifune is badass in spades.
TwittaFlicks #90 – Chimes at Midnight (1965) – Welles uses Shakespeare’s Henry IV to inspire an artful take on perennial bit player Falstaff
TwittaFlicks #84 – Caddyshack (1980) – The best of the madcap 80’s comedies. The only good varmint poontang is dead varmint poontang, I think.
TwittaFlicks #250 – Le Samourai (1967) – Melville’s New Wave take on Film Noir is sparse, dark and riveting in its rejection of cliches
TwittaFlicks #119 – The Departed (2006) – Marty adapts a HK action flick and comes up swinging in the Irish Boston underworld GO F@*$ YOSELF!
