the rise and fall of the batman

TIM BURTON ON WHY HE WAS DRAWN TO THE DARK KNIGHT: “I was never a giant comic book fan but I’ve always loved the image of Batman and the Joker. I loved Batman, the split personality, the hidden person. Having a light side and a dark side, and not being able to resolve them. I can see certain aspects of myself in the character. Everyone has several sides to their personality; no one is one thing. People often represent themselves as one thing but are really something else. Which is symbolic of the character. “Casting Batman, I saw a zillion people and the thing that kept going through my mind when I saw these action-adventure hero types come into the office was, ‘Why would this macho, Arnold Schwarzenegger-type person dress up…

a bug’s death

Paul Verhoeven’s controversial sci-fi pits Aryan poster boy Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) and the mobile infantry against marauding alien arachnids of all shapes and sizes. But their mission to a planet named Tango Urilla adds an explosive new element to the director’s trademark sex, violence and satire – fire, and lots of it. Starship Troopers is available on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD now. THE BACKGROUND Ed Neumeier’s (RoboCop) original script Bug Hunt At Outpost Nine did the rounds for years. When similarities with Robert A. Heinlein’s 1959 novel Starship Troopers were pointed out, the book was optioned and its plot and character names assimilated. Problem was, Heinlein’s work was horribly right-wing. “I stopped after two chapters because it was so boring...” complains Verhoeven. “It is really quite a bad book.” Between them,…

we need to talk about kevin

DIDN’T SEE CLERKS, MALLRATS OR CHASING AMY? YOUR LOSS, PALLY BOY. All three deal with drippy stuff like boy/girl (or boy/girl/girl) relationships, and coming to terms with adulthood – but they’re not the hook. You remember Smith’s cameos as Silent Bob, necrophilia in toilets, comic book conversation and killer lines you wish you’d said. Chasing Amy features an awesome sex-related injury conversation. Do you have any? I wish I did, but I don’t. I had rug burn on my back a few times, but it didn’t last. That runs in to a Banky/Alyssia talk about sex. Being English, and thus repressed, it’s hard to believe two people of the opposite sex could talk like that. Do they in New Jersey? Oh absolutely, but it just comes down to who you’re with. Every so often…

JULES WINNFIELD (SAMUEL L JACKSON INPULP FICTION) “I will strike down up on thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.” Just like his wallet says, Jules is one ice-cool Bad Motherfucker. VIC VEGA, AKA MR BLONDE (MICHAEL MADSEN IN RESERVOIR DOGS) Brother of Travolta’s Vincent, Vic knows how to strut his stuff, even if he’s a bit of an ear fetishist. After patiently listening to Harvey Keitel’s Mr White laying into him, your blood turns cold when he finally replies, “Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite?” CLARENCE WORLEY (CHRISTIAN SLATER IN TRUE ROMANCE) Elvis-obsessed comic-book store employee Clarence really grabs life by…

the rules

Watch enough horror movies and you’ll eventually start to spot certain patterns. The Scream movies are all about playing with horror conventions, and they weren’t shy about it – each movie sets out its own ‘rules’, before gleefully breaking them. Here’s what you need to know: How to successfully survive a horror movie • Don’t have sex • Don’t drink or do drugs • Never, ever say “I’ll be right back” What to expect from a horror sequel • The body count is always bigger • The death scenes are always way more elaborate, with more gore • Never, ever assume the killer is dead How things change in the final part of a trilogy • The killer is gonna be superhuman • Anyone, including the main character, can die • The past will come back to bite you Rules for a horror…

tremors

I was working as an editor for the navy, who had a desert base in the Mojave, and on weekends the ranges were open to the employees. One day I was sitting out there on these boulders and thought how interesting it would be if there was something that could move through the sand like a fish and I couldn’t get off the rock. This was in 1975 and I jotted the idea down and filed it away.” Steve “SS” Wilson is explaining to us the moment when the idea first came to him for what would, 15 years later, become one of the best-loved comedy-horror films of the ’90s, Tremors. Starring Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as Val McKee and Earl Bassett, two handymen in a small Nevada town who…
