The Stepfather (1987)

Posted on August 13, 2017  in Entertainment, Videos

 

The Stepfather is a 1987 American psychological horror thriller film directed by Joseph Ruben and starring Terry O’Quinn, Jill Schoelen and Shelley Hack. O’Quinn stars as Henry Morrison, an identity-assuming serial killer who remarries a widow with a teenage daughter. After previously killing his family and changing his identity, his killing spree continues after his stepdaughter becomes suspicious about him. It is loosely based on the life of mass murderer John List, although the plot is more commonly associated with slasher films of the era than a true story. The film was written by Donald E. Westlake, from a story by Westlake, Carolyn Lefcourt and Brian Garfield.

 

The film was theatrically released January 23, 1987, in the United States. Upon its release, the film grossed $2.4 million at the box office and was well-received by critics. It has since gained a cult following and was followed by two sequels: Stepfather II (1989) and Stepfather III (1992), and a remake also called The Stepfather, released on October 16, 2009.

 

The Stepfather has an 86% approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes and an average rating of 6.7/10 out of 29 reviews. Film critic Roger Ebert, from the Chicago Sun Times, gave the movie 2.5 stars out of 4, and commented: “Violence itself seems to sell at the box office, even when it’s divorced from any context. Maybe that’s what the filmmakers were thinking. What often happens, though, is that in an otherwise flawed film there are a couple of things that are wonderful. The Stepfather has one wonderful element: Terry O’Quinn’s performance.”

 

On “Combustible Celluloid”, the film ranked 3 out of 4 stars, and reviewer Jeffrey M. Anderson commented: “Joseph Ruben directs competently but perhaps not as playfully as the material could have used, but O’Quinn gets in a few prime moments, such as the startling one in which he forgets which persona he’s currently occupying. Nevertheless, The Stepfather is still a high water mark of 1980s horror/suspense.”

 

For his performance, O’Quinn was nominated for both a Saturn and an Independent Spirit Award. Director Ruben was honored with the Critics award at the 1988 Cognac Festival. The film was also nominated for the International Fantasy Film Award for Best Film at the 1990 Fantasporto and included in Bravo‘s 100 Scariest Movie Moments on spot #70.

 

Years since its release, it is also now considered a cult film.

5 Times Floyd Mayweather Looked Invincible

Posted on February 22, 2017  in Entertainment, MMA Related Videos, Videos

 

Boxing Legends TV takes a look at the 5 times Floyd Mayweather Jr looked invincible. Regarded as one of, if not the greatest defensive fighter of all time, but its sometimes forgot how could really inflict damage a his early years.

 

 

Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. (born Floyd Joy Sinclair; February 24, 1977) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1996 to 2015, and currently works as a boxing promoter. Widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, undefeated as a professional, and a five-division world champion, Mayweather won fifteen world titles and the lineal championship in four different weight classes (twice at welterweight). As an amateur, he won a bronze medal in the featherweight division at the 1996 Olympics. Mayweather is a two-time winner of The Ring magazine’s Fighter of the Year award (1998 and 2007), a three-time winner of the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) Fighter of the Year award (2007, 2013, and 2015), and a six-time winner of the Best Fighter ESPY Award (2007–2010, 2012–2014).

 

 

In 2016, Mayweather was ranked by ESPN as the greatest boxer, pound for pound, of the last 25 years. In the same year, he peaked as BoxRec‘s number one fighter of all time, pound for pound, as well as the greatest welterweight of all time. Many sporting news and boxing websites ranked Mayweather as the best boxer in the world, pound for pound, twice in a span of ten years; including The Ring, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, BoxRec, Fox Sports, and Yahoo! Sports. He is also regarded as the best defensive boxer in the sport, as well as being the most accurate puncher since the existence of CompuBox, having the highest plus–minus ratio in recorded boxing history. He finished his career with a record of 26 wins without a loss or draw in world title fights (10 by KO); 23 wins (9 KOs) in lineal title fights; 24 wins (7 KOs) against former or current world titlists; 12 wins (3 KOs) against former or current lineal champions; and 2 wins (1 KO) against International Boxing Hall of Fame inductees.

 

 

In addition to his accomplishments in the ring, Mayweather is well known for being one of the most lucrative pay-per-view (PPV) attractions of all time, in any sport. He topped the Forbes and Sports Illustrated lists of the 50 highest-paid athletes of 2012 and 2013 respectively, and the Forbes list again in both 2014 and 2015, listing him as the highest paid athlete in the world. In 2007, he founded Mayweather Promotions, his own boxing promotional firm after defecting from Bob Arum‘s Top Rank. Mayweather has generated approximately 19.5 million in PPV buys and $1.3 billion in revenue throughout his career, surpassing the likes of former top PPV attractions including Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya, and Manny Pacquiao.

Orwell Rolls in His Grave (2003)

Posted on February 11, 2017  in Entertainment, Videos

 

The film covered topics including the Telecommunications Act of 1996, concentration of media ownership, political corruption, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the controversy over the US presidential election of 2000 (particularly in Florida with Bush v. Gore), and the Carter vs. Reagan 1980 “October Surprise” conspiracy theory.

 

 

 

A great documentary analyzing the role of the modern American media and its effects on democracy.

Strangler of the Swamp (1946)

Posted on January 29, 2017  in Entertainment, Videos


Strangler of the Swamp (1946) by MargaliMorwentari

 

Strangler of the Swamp is a 1946 American horror film, produced and distributed by Producers Releasing Corporation. It was written and directed by Frank Wisbar, and stars Rosemary LaPlanche, Robert Barrat and Blake Edwards. It is a remake of Wisbar’s earlier German film Fährmann Maria (1936)

 

 

Written and directed by Frank Wisbar, this hour-long B thriller from 1946 is so obscure that it doesn’t even rank an entry in Leonard Maltin’s Movie & Video Guide, but it’s a perfectly adequate example of the low-budget fare that was cranked out like sausages by Producer’s Releasing Corporation (PRC) in post-World War II Hollywood. Of interest to trivia buffs is the youthful appearance of future Pink Panther director Blake Edwards as the movie’s youthful would-be hero, while Rosemary La Planche plays his beloved, who would sacrifice herself to spare her lover from the title character–the shadowy ghost of a ferryman (played by Charles Middleton) who haunts the local swampland, avenging his wrongful hanging for murder. Steeped in rich, foggy atmosphere, the film copies the effective visual style of Wisbar’s earlier German film Fährmann Maria, and although this shoestring spooker barely registers on the fright meter, it’s still an interesting oddity for hardcore film buffs, who will appreciate the fact that a movie of such minimal consequence has somehow made its way to DVD.

The Very Best of Manny Pacquiao

Posted on January 27, 2017  in Entertainment, MMA Related Videos, Videos

 

 

 

EmmanuelMannyDapidran Pacquiao,  born December 17, 1978) is a Filipino professional boxer and politician, currently serving as Senator of the Philippines. In boxing he has held the WBO and lineal welterweight titles since 2016, and is currently in his third reign as WBO welterweight champion.

 

 

Pacquiao is generally considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time as he is the first and only eight-division world champion, having won eleven major world titles, as well as being the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes. Pacquiao is also the third boxer in history to win genuine world titles in three of the original eight weight divisions of boxing, also known as the “glamour divisions” (flyweight, featherweight, and welterweight).

 

 

He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA), WBC, and WBO. He is also a three-time Ring magazine and BWAA Fighter of the Year, winning the award in 2006, 2008, and 2009; and the Best Fighter ESPY Award in 2009 and 2011. BoxRec ranks him as the greatest Asian fighter of all time. Pacquiao was long rated as the best pound for pound boxer in the world by most sporting news and boxing websites, including ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Sporting Life, Yahoo! Sports, About.com, BoxRec, and The Ring, beginning from his climb to lightweight until his losses in 2012. He is also the longest reigning top-ten boxer on The Ring’s pound for pound list.

 

 

These are his very best moments.
