    Your unearthed gems

    I've only seen Trancers the one time, probably about thirty years ago now. My main memory of it is that it was constantly trailed alongside Runaway starring Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons from Kiss.

    Thanks both. I was on a trip with my family, so these were just quickly grabbed shots, but there is an amazing amount of scope for architectural shots (especially abstracts) if you get the time.

  4. Iron Man 2 tends to be thought of as one of poorer entries in the MCU, which I tend to agree with. But then it has Justin Hammer's (Sam Rockwell) expo entrance, which never ceases to crack me up.

    Almost forgotton superheroes of the 70's and 80's

    How about a couple of shows about invisibility, both of which I watched in the 70s. First, The Invisible Man, starring David Mccallum: Then, lower-budget replacement, The Gemini Man (or Le Homme Nouvelle Invisible in this French version):

    Mark Kermode's Secrets of Cinema - Tuesdays 9pm BBC 4

    Yeah, I saw that when it was first shown. Maybe having Kermode do something similar would have perhaps been re-treading old ground, but it still would have been preferable to trying to cram everything from a very broad genre into a single episode. In fact, thinking about it, it would have been nice to have this as a potential multi-year series, perhaps concentrating on a genre in more detail over a number of weeks. There are certainly a number of genres that would easily support this. On the flipside, if the purpose of the show is to concentrate more on tropes, then perhaps that would be taking it too far.

    Mark Kermode's Secrets of Cinema - Tuesdays 9pm BBC 4

    I agree with this. SF is a very broad genre, as is horror, and I’d have preferred them to be broken down into significant sub-genres, in the same way that we got a full episode on heist movies, rather than them just being slotted into a full show on crime movies as a whole. There should be no shortage of subject matter for a full episode on slasher movies, ghost stories, vampires, psycological horror etc. instead of a generic hour on the whole lot next week.

    A movie watchers blog

    Scanners always makes me think of the London Underground, for the simple reason that my dad took me on a day trip there in 1981 (I’d have been eleven at the time) and the Tube stations were all plastered with the striking poster showing Michael Ironside, veins standing out on his face and arms, eyes rolled back to the whites, and the memorable tag line: 10 seconds. The pain begins. 15 seconds. You can’t breathe. 20 seconds. You explode. It stuck in my mind for a long time. I didn’t see the film until decades later. there were also posters for a film called Green Ice, which were similarly embedded in my memory, although not in the same way as Scanners. I’ve never watched Green Ice.
