It's been a looong time since I (or anyone) wrote anything on this blog, but I'm pretty sure that all of the authors have good excuses. I know I do, since I've got some jobs, a kid, and a bunch of stuff to do.
So I think I'll try to just post shorter things, so I don't feel like I need to make huge posts every time I want to add something to the site.
This time around, I wanted to call your attention to the Walk of Life Project, if you've not heard of it before. Basically, a man/mad genius has Read more [...]
Hi again! Tonight I want to talk about the remake of the movie I reviewed a few nights ago, On The Beach. This one was made 41 years later, but there are many similarities between the two.
The main premise of the movie is still the same: the northern hemisphere has been destroyed and the fallout is coming down to Australia to kill everyone. Some details are different, though. In this version, it was a war between the US and China, not the USSR. Some of the places in the US where the sub goes Read more [...]
Good evening! I'm taking a break from the Atomic Film Fest to talk about a movie I watched last night called Once Upon A Time In The West. It's pretty great, if you've not seen it.
Actually, I'm not sure why or how I'd not seen of it until just recently, and I don't even think I'd heard of it. I know I've seen How The West Was Won, so maybe I got the titles mixed up or something. I see now it's even at #26 on the IMDB all time list. That's a little bit amazing. So who knows. I do know that I Read more [...]
Hello again! Our Atomic Film Fest continues this evening with 1959's movie On The Beach. There was also a remake in 2000 (which I'll discuss soon), but I think this must be one of the earliest movies made that contains a nuclear scare, although the "scare" is fairly mild.
The idea is that The US and The USSR have bombed each other to hell, and there's not much left of the northern hemisphere except a cloud of radiation that's slowly making its way south. The bulk of the story takes place Read more [...]
As I mentioned in my last post, a couple months ago I got on a kick of watching movies related to nuclear scares and post-nuclear-apocalypse tales. WarGames was a bit goofy but entertaining overall, but that movie stands in contrast to another movie from the same year which kicked off my film fest, The Day After.
The Day After is a 1983 made for TV movie that apparently made a huge impact when it was released, although I was only three when it came out, so I guess I wouldn't know. What I do Read more [...]
Hello! It's been a while since I rapped at ya, but I've been busy. You know, baby and all. I've also not watched too many movies lately. But I've been doing Blogtoberfest throughout all my websites, and I thought it was high time for a new review on Cinematic Attic.
Let me explain the idea of the Atomic Film Fest. A few months ago I read an article that mentioned a 1983 made-for-TV movie called The Day After. It was supposedly about an atomic attack on the US, and it followed a bunch of people Read more [...]
