  1. It's spooky season and that can only mean one thing here at the film club, time for horror. Just like last year we are having a double bill with a classic and a modern horror film. For our classic selection we have F.W Murnau's legendary German expressionist vampire film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. Starring Max Schreck as Count Orlok the film is an unauthorised retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the names all changed to avoid lawsuits, but other than that it is a pretty faithful version of the story. It was so faithful that the estate of Bram Stoker sued the production comp

    RSC Film Club

    Welcome to the RSC Film Club A chance to watch and discuss films, maybe your favourites, maybe something you’ve never heard of before, with all your favourite crew mates. We will be watching one film per month, hopefully giving everyone a chance to watch the film and to have a decent discussion about it before moving on to the next one. How do we choose what to watch? There will be a different theme/genre every month to keep things fresh, which will be announced in this thread. Everyone is free to nominate a film in this thread, all of which will be put in a random

    La Strada [RSC Film Club 34]

    This month we are going international as the film club watches a movie in a language that we've not yet covered, as suggested by @djw180. So no films in English, French, Norwegian, Korean or Japanese could be nominated. The winning film, nominated by me, is Federico Fellini's neorealist drama, La Strada (The Road). It stars Giulietta Masina as Gelsomina, a naive and simple young woman whose mother sells her to a travelling circus to be the wife and assistant of the brutish strongman, Zampanò (Anthony Quinn). She soon falls in love with the circus's clown, Il Matteo (Richard Ba

    American Graffiti [RSC Film Club 33]

    The genre for August's Film Club selection, as nominated by @Conwas school/college films. The winning entry, nominated by both @djw180and @Squirrelis George Lucas's ode to his teenage years, American Graffiti. Set over the last night of summer vacation, the film follows a group of teenagers as they hang out for the last time, cruising in their hot rods, trying to pick up girls and looking to the future. It stars Ron Howard (Happy Days) before he became an Oscar winning director and Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws), with an expansive supporting cast that includes Harrison Ford (you know who

    A Bronx Tale [RSC Film Club 32]

    This month's category, chosen by @djw180 was play adaptations with the winning film being @omarcomin71's selection of A Bronx Tale. The directorial debut of Robert De Niro, A Bronx Tale is based on the 1989 autobiographical play of the same name, which was a one man show by Chazz Palminteri, who also adapted the play for the screen. The film is a coming of age story where the young Calogero (Francis Capra/Lillo Brancato, Jr. as child and teen Calogero respectively) is torn between his father Lorenzo (De Niro) and local gangster Sonny (Palminteri). This is another film club

    The Interview [RSC Film Club 30]

    This month's film club is all about controversy, films that got people riled up for whatever reason. The winning film was nominated by @Beezand is the 2014 comedy The Interview, directed by Seth Rogen and and Evan Goldberg. The film stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as a talk show host and his producer who manage to arrange an interview with Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un (Randall Park). When the CIA learn of this, they recruit the two to assassinate him. You can probably see where the controversy comes from here. A few months before it was released North Korea threa

    Parasite [RSC Film Club 29]

    This month we are celebrating the upcoming Academy Awards by watching a past winner. The category we were picking from was Best Director, after having previously done Best Picture and Best Actor with The French Connection and Judgment at Nuremburg respectively, with the winning film being the most recent recipient of the award, B0ng Joon-ho's Parasite.

    Atomic Blonde [RSC Film Club 28]

    This month's winning genre and film come courtesy of @omarcomin71 who nominated Charlize Theron films, choosing Atomic Blonde as his film. Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, Theron stars as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent who has been tasked with finding a list of double agents being smuggled into the west on the eve of the collapse of the Berlin Wall. It is directed by David Leitch, former stuntman and uncredited co-director of John Wick. This is his first credited film, going on to direct Deadpool 2 and Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw.

    Can't Stop the Music [RSC Film Club 26]

    Oh boy, we're starting 2021 off with a doozy. The winning, randomly drawn film for January is @Sinister's pick of Can't Stop the Music. Produced by Allan Carr, who had a small success with another musical a few years earlier, you may have heard of it - Grease, and directed by Nancy Walker, her only feature film directing credit, Can't Stop the Music is a fictional biopic of The Village People starring the group as themselves alongside a pre-Police Academy Steve Guttenberg and a pre-transition Caitlin Jenner. This is a film I have seen way more than it deserves, I could write my r

    Brazil [RSC Film Club 25]

    And now for the alternative Christmas film selection, chosen by @djw180 and seconded by myself, the classic Terry Gilliam surreal satire, Brazil. Brazil stars Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Two Popes) as Sam Lowry, an office drone for the Ministry of Information who has dreams of flying and a beautiful woman. One day a simple clerical error starts a chain of events that shakes up his world and introduces him to a memorable cast of characters as he tries to fight the system. This film has an amazing supporting cast including Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Jim Broadbent, Gilli

    Home Alone [RSC Film Club 24]

    It's time to get festive at the film club with a double bill of Christmassy goodness. First up, our traditional Christmas film, nominated by @Squirrel, the film that made Macaulay Culkin a superstar, Home Alone. Written by the king of 80s teen comedy, John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and directed by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, the first two Harry Potter films) Home Alone stars Culkin as Kevin, an 8 year old who is inadvertently left home alone when his family fly off to France for the holidays. Not only does he have to take responsibility for himself
  12. The world lost a legend of cinema recently with the passing of Sir Sean Connery, so to celebrate his life and career the film club will be watching one of his classics. I think it's a testament to his acting ability and range that, despite being best known for playing James Bond, none of his 007 films were nominated. Instead there were nominations for a wide range of roles from across the decades, with the winner being nominated by @Squirrel, the Cold War thriller The Hunt for Red October. Directed by action movie legend John McTiernan, who also bought us Predator, Die Hard and The

    Mulholland Drive [RSC Film Club 23]

    The month of November in the film club belongs to the legendarily strange director David Lynch, our second taste of his filmography after Dune. However, the winning film for this month is a much more Lynchian work that truly represents his style and the themes that he returns to in a lot of his work. @djw180and @Con both nominated a trip into the unsettling and dreamy world of Mulholland Drive. Mulholland Drive is a surreal neo-noir mystery that tells the tale of Betty, played by Naomi Watts, a young actress just arrived in LA and Rita, played by Laura Harring, who has become an am

    The King [Film Club Extra 06]

    Our extra dose of medieval action comes in the form of David Michôd's The King, nominated by @Squirrel. This film is an adaptation of Shakespeare's plays Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and Henry V. This is the latest of many adaptations of Shakespeare's epic, the most notable versions being Laurence Olivier's from the 40's and Kenneth Branagh's 80's rendition. Big shoes to follow, but with a cast including Timothée Chalamet as Henry Prince of Wales later Henry V and support from the likes of Robert Pattinson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Joel Edgerton, this stands a good chance of living up to the reputatio

    The Iron Giant [RSC Film Club 21]

    The winning film for this month's category of animated sci-fi, nominated by @Fido_le_muet, is Brad Bird's directorial debut, The Iron Giant, as chosen by @djw180. Based on the children's book by poet laureate Ted Hughes, but transposing the action to America, this film poses the question what if a gun had a conscience? The film, as expected for a Bird movie, has gorgeous animation and real heart and is truly a film for all the family. It has a great cast, including Harry Connick. Jr, Jennifer Aniston and, as the giant, Vin Diesel. I've not seen this since close to release, so am e

    American Psycho [RSC Film Club 19]

    For July the film club was tasked with choosing a female-directed film, with the winning entry coming from Canadian filmmaker Mary Harron, who started her career as a music journalist writing for Punk magazine, and was the first person to interview The s*x Pistols for an American publication. She started her film career with the independent movie I Shot Andy Warhol, which is about a failed assassination attempt on the famous pop-artist. This infusion of violence and pop-culture came to the fore once again in her second film, American Psycho, based on the notorious Bret Easton Ellis novel, an

    The Hurricane [RSC Film Club 18]

    This month the film club is all about biopics, as submitted by @Fido_le_muet. Although this is the first time that it has been an official genre, we have had a few biopics in the past such as Max Manus, The French Connection and Rush. This month we return to the world of sports with the 1999 biopic of boxer Rubin Carter, The Hurricane, nominated by @omarcomin71. The film, directed by Norman Jewison (In The Heat of the Night, Fiddler on the Roof, Moonstruck) tells the story of middleweight boxer, Rubin "The Hurricane" Carter (Denzel Washington) who was wrongfully arrested and convic

    Seven Samurai [RSC Film Club 20]

    This month the RSC Film Club is getting medieval on your *ss as we head back to the Middle Ages thanks to @Squirrel and @djw180. The winning selection was my choice (it's not a fix, I swear!), Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. This legendary epic (in all meanings of the term, this is almost three and a half hours long) tells the simple story of a small village constantly raided by bandits. When the villagers are at their most desperate they decide to go out and try to hire some samurai to fight them off. While the story is simple, the characters and their relationships are not, an

    Blue Ruin [RSC Film Club 16]

    The film club is all about sweet revenge this month thanks to @omarcomin71, with the winning film nominated by @doubleg213 and @JuniorChubb, Jeremy Saulnier's Blue Ruin. Written and directed by Saulnier, who also wrote and directed the fantastic Green Room, Blue Ruin stars Macon Blair (The Florida Project, Logan Lucky) as a man out for revenge, and that's about all I know about this film. I am looking forward to this though, as it has received excellent reviews, and Saulnier won the FIPRESCI award at the Cannes film festival for this film, an award previously won by legendary

    Max Manus: Man of War [RSC Film Club 17]

    War was the theme for May's film club, with the winning film being Max Manus: Man of War nominated by @Lann. Max Manus is a Norwegian biographical film detailing the exploits of resistance fighter and saboteur, Max Manus and is based on books that he wrote himself. It was directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, who directed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales and stars Aksel Hennie as Manus.

    The King of Comedy [RSC Film Club 15]

    This month, because of the website merge, we forgo the genre nominations and instead put forward our favourite films. The winning entry was mine! This means our film for March is Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy. The film stars Robert DeNiro as Rupert Pupkin, autograph hunter, wannabe stand-up, and obsessive fan of late night talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). He feels that if he can just get a spot on Langford's show then he can show the world how funny he is, and he resorts to some desperate measures to try to achieve this goal.

    Dear Basketball [Film Club Extra 05]

    A few days ago the sports world lost one of its most beloved and iconic figures when Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, tragically lost his life at just 41 in a helicopter crash which also took the lives of eight other people, including his 13 year old daughter Gianna. This impacted not only the basketball world, or America, but the entire globe. Kobe didn't just win championships and awards on the basketball court, he also won an Oscar for the film he wrote, narrated and produced, Dear Basketball. It took home the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 20

Directed by Stanley Kramer (Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World) and with a cast including Spencer Tracy, Judy Garland, Burt Lancaster and Marlene Dietrich as well as Schell, the film tells the story of the Nuremberg trials, where prominent n*zis and n*zi collaborators were tried for crimes against humanity.

    Four Lions [RSC Film Club 13]

    We're starting off 2020 with a bang, quite literally! Our genre for the first film club of the new decade is comedy, with the winning entry being the controversial Chris Morris film, Four Lions. Written and directed by incendiary British comedian Chris Morris (The Day Today, Brass Eye, Jam) Four Lions, released in 2010, is his film debut. It stars Riz Ahmed, Nigel Lindsay, Kayvan Novak, and Adeel Akhtar as four radicalised British Muslims who want to blow something up. They just don't know what, or how to do it.

    It's December, so of course we'll be watching a Christmas movie for this month's film club. The winning film was nominated by @Spinnaker1981, 1984's Gremlins. Directed by Joe Dante (The Howling, Innerspace, Small Soldiers) and written by Chris Columbus (writer of The Goonies, Young Sherlock Holmes and director of Home Alone and the first two Harry Potter films), Gremlins stars Zach Galligan as Billy Peltzer, a teenager who receives a strange, but cute, new pet for Christmas.
