It’s not uncommon that some film projects have often been abandoned in the filming or conceptual process whether due to budget problems, other projects, or just not being interested in the film being made. With recent talk of Stanley Kubrick’s abandoned Napoleon project being adapted to Television by Steven Spielberg, I’ve gotten to think about some of the other projects that have been lost over the years and I’ve decided to share some that I think should have been shown upon the big screen.

Personally, I’ve never seen much of a point to Dance Films.
There have been countless films over the years that are simply dedicated to the mere act of dancing and having it be the enter basis for many films and oddly spawning franchises in the process. While I do think something like this would work for a Documentary, It doesn’t hold up well enough to support an entire film idea. Although, it has sometimes worked before, but they were those movies balanced out with additional plot elements as well as having talent behind and in front of the camera. (Saturday Night Fever is probably the best example of that and having it work.)
Today though, I am revisiting a forgotten franchise that never succeeded with that concept, the Breakin’ movies.

I have to admit, prior to seeing this film, I knew next to nothing about the musician simply known as Prince. I’ve never heard of his songs nor seen any of his films and I didn’t even know what that weird symbol he has meant. Recently though, I figured it was about time to educate myself about the musician. So I decided to check his first feature film Purple Rain to help enlighten me.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has always been a subject I don’t have very much knowledge or care for.
While I haven’t seen much of the shows, nor am I a fan of the franchise, Ido recognize its likable traits within each adaptation and today I’m here to talk a bit about one that was always one of the most recognized characters, aside from the Turtles, April O’ Neil.
She has always been helping out the Turtles and sometimes joining in their fights at times as well and it has been a rather pleasant surprise seeing how more developed and involved she becomes over the years…that is until Michael Bay came along. Read the rest of this entry →

Automobiles have often the object and affection of many different cult films throughout the years. Some of the earliest examples in the early 1950’s often had films that told of illegal street racing and competiting greaser gangs like The Fast and The Furious and Dragstrip Girl as well as showing off their hot rods for all the public to see. As the years went by though, we’ve often started to amplify the ideas by having massive amounts of destruction of said cars as well as adding in Body-Counts while the films of simple racing slowly faded away. While they were stating to fade out, Roger Corman struck with the soon to be former actor Ron Howard which entitled him that if he starred in Eat My Dust!, he would be able to direct the sequel and said sequel arose the next year and started Ron’s Directing Career with the movie Grand Theft Auto.

It’s pretty easy to admit that most of the Marvel films back in the day weren’t of the highest caliber of what we are treated to today with the Cinematic Universe.Â While there were some good films that have popped up in the early 2000’s, the rest of them were pretty bad and have often left a lack of interest in the heroes chosen for the big screen as well as a few being considered the worst films ever made. The one group that always gets the bottom of the barrel in that regard is The Fantastic Four.

On an upcoming post for my “Letters to Celestia” series, I’ve decided to take a look at one of the odder and most interesting things within every single fandom imaginable: Shipping. I was originally going to have this be a solo act, but I think it’d be more interesting and informative if I had another person(or multiple people)’s opinion on what I’ll discuss for it.
If your interested in doing this with me, let me know either here in the forum or Send me a PM.

Out of all the films made by the Coen Brothers, the most popular film out of their catalogue is most definitely The Big Lebowski.
The film has gotten massively popular shortly after the film came out and has spawned a a gigantic fanbase leading up to social gatherings, conventions, and many other things dedicated to all things Lebowski related.Â So, after recently rewatching it I decided to count down some of the best moments in the film.
