Hey, You Guys! STRANGER SUGGESTIONS at L.A.’s Impro Studio Never Says Die (Or No…)

Following in the footsteps of the Duffer Brothers, the cast of Stranger Suggestions binge-watched classic 80s movies that pitted tenacious kids against villainous adults amidst supernatural happenings. In the vein of Stranger Things, this totally improvised show draws on The Goonies, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Last Starfighter, The NeverEnding Story, Flight of the Navigator, Labyrinth, etc. I saw their preview, and it was rad. Rather than trying to review a show that changes for every performance, I thought it would be more interesting to talk to director and cast member Kelly Holden Bashar (Fargo) about how Stranger Suggestions works. I knew...

Reflecting on the Netflix Hit, Stranger Things

WE COULD STEAL TIME, JUST FOR ONE DAY Reflecting on Stranger Things… Review by Mary Gent The Movie Guys Soon after the release of Stranger Things, I read a few articles that refer to or criticize some sort of imaginary nostalgic zeitgeist when it comes to the show. The year is 1983 and hearkens back to a time of innocence and the cultivating bonds of friendship made in youth. A time that existed in purity alongside the excess of the ’80s and the harbinger known as The Cold War. I would disagree with those naysayers and that kind of flippant...

5 Movies to End Your Summer

Summer is coming to an end.  Kids are going back to school.   In many parts of the country the weather will soon cool off, leaves will fall from trees, and people will start to retreat to the warmth of the indoors.  Here in L.A., where I live, the crushing tide of heat and raging fire will strengthen while we all pray that it will cool off by December, but I digress. Even if you don’t feel the change of seasons physically, it’s good to get your head around the march of time, mentally.  I like to do that...

If I’m on Desert Island, I’ll take Star Trek over Star Wars. Real Genius over Revenge of the Nerds. Near Dark over The Lost Boys. and The Monster Squad over The Goonies. Creature Features YET AGAIN. They’re so rad. I should just marry them. Another group art show with over 100 artists paying tribute to this great film. A couple weeks later they continue the love by sponsoring a viewing just...

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 15TH ANNUAL PHOENIX FILM FESTIVAL – PART 2

Article by Ray Schillaci The Movie Guys Foreign films provided an eclectic experience with the World Cinema Competition film from Argentina, “Glories of Tango,” the Showcase Feature Film from Hungary, “White God,” and in the IHSFF (Int’l Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival) category from Denmark, “When Animals Dream”. Every one of these films is filled with so much awe and wonder, they will probably be an inspiration to many American filmmakers. After all, we would not have such popular American films like “Star Wars” or “The Magnificent Seven” without Kurosawa’s “The Hidden Fortress” or “Seven Samurai,” and even “Twelve...

Star Wars, Star Trek, ok…lets just say everything Sci-fi passed on to this next generation of girls. This morning, while I was catching up on some very important Facebooking, I came across this post by an old friend. “So I take my girls to a Disney store and what is the first thing they see? FROZEN? Nope. TANGLED? No! STAR WARS!!! As I took this pic one tear fell down my cheek. ‪#‎proudpapa‬“ I...
