    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
  2. 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

    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

    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 film is one of the biggest recent hits of Norwegian cinema, winning a record seven Amanda awards (the Norwegian Oscars) in 2009 at the Norwegian International Film Fe

    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

    Judgment at Nuremberg [RSC Film Club 14]

    Our film for Oscar season, with a best actor winning performance from Maximilian Schell, is the 1961 courtroom drama Judgment at Nuremberg, nominated by @djw180. 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. As well as the best actor Oscar, the film also won the statue for best adapted screenplay fo

    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. Morris has always been a controversial figure in the British comed

    Gremlins [RSC Film Club 12]

    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. As long as he follows the three rules for looking after them, don't get them wet, don't expose them to li

    Gladiator [RSC Film Club 11]

    This month we are celebrating the work of Sir Ridley Scott, as suggested by @djw180 and @Spinnaker1981, with the winning film being another DJ nomination, Gladiator. Released in the year 2000 it stars Russel Crowe in an Oscar winning performance, with support from Joaquin Phoenix, Derek Jacobi, Richard Harris and the legendary Oliver Reed in his final role. Gladiator was a huge success on release, winning the Oscar for best picture, and a nomination for best director for Ridley Scott, one of three in his career (Thelma and Louise and Black Hawk Down being the other two).

    The Duellists [Film Club Extra 04]

    We're getting a double dose of Ridley Scott action this month as, well, we've all seen Gladiator and there was a cry for a second, lesser known, slice of his filmography. That comes in the form of his debut feature film, 1977's The Duellists, nominated by myself, and seconded by @Sinister. Set in Napoleonic France, this film is based on a Joseph Conrad story, who is the author of Heart of Darkness, the inspiration for Apocalypse Now, among many other amazing books. It is the tale of two men obsessively fighting over their honour over the course of decades. It is an absolutely go

    Dune [RSC Film Club 08]

    This month's Film Club genre is sci-fi war films, nominated by @Squirrel, and that comes in the form of warring families of nobles battling for control of a desolate desert planet, and its valuable resources, in David Lynch's Dune, picked by @djw180. A critical and commercial failure on release, with Roger Ebert naming it the worst film of 1984, Dune has gone on to garner a cult following since then, with more recent reviews being generally more positive. Featuring an ensemble cast, including Sting, Patrick Stewart and Max von Sydow, and directed by master of the surreal, David Lync

    Mad Max: Fury Road [RSC Film Club 05]

    This month the film club is hitting the road, with the theme being road movies. The winner, nominated by @Squirrel, is Mad Max: Fury Road. This is a sequel/reboot of the legendary Australian film series, the fourth entry, and the first in thirty years. It was written and directed by the creator of the original films, George Miller (Happy Feet, Happy Feet 2, Babe: Pig in the City) and stars Tom Hardy (Bronson, The Dark Knight Rises) as Max, replacing Mel Gibson in the role, and Charlize Theron (Monster, Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa. The plot sees Max helping Furiosa in her attempt t

    They Live [RSC Film Club 06]

    This month's film club is all about b-movies, and when you look towards the upper end of that genre you start seeing the name John Carpenter quite a lot. Director of classic genre films like Halloween, The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13, Escape from New York and The Fog, the film of his we'll be watching this month is the anti-consumerism manifesto that is 1988's They Live, nominated by @Pb76. In my opinion the best film ever made that stars a wrestler (sorry Dwane), They Live is based on a short story, Eight O'Clock in the Morning, by Ray Nelson, from 1963, and stars "Rowdy" Roddy P

    Rush [Film Club Extra 02]

    Our second Film Club Extra choice is the film Rush, suggested by @Beez, @djw180 and @Fido_le_muet to commemorate the life of legendary Formula 1 driver, Niki Lauda, who recently passed away. Directed by Ron Howard (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), the film tells the story of the heated rivalry between Lauda, played by Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds, Captain America: Civil War) and James Hunt, Chris Hemsworth (Thor) in the early to mid 70s. This film was critically acclaimed for it's race sequences, which are shot to show the pure power and danger of the sport, especially in those

    The Crimson Rivers [RSC Film Club 04]

    On the 22nd of March 1895, at the "Society for the Development of the National Industry" in Paris, 200 people witnessed the very first projected motion pictures in history. This makes France the most important country in film history. Thanks to pioneers like The Lumiere Brothers, Georges Melies, and The Pathe Brothers we are able to see things on the big screen that we could never possibly dream of. France didn't just invent cinema, they also gave us cinemas, and, with the publication of Cahiers du Cinema in 1951, gave us the birth of modern film theory and criticism. The writers at

    This month we're all singing and all dancing as we'll be watching Chicago, nominated by @Spinnaker1981 and @Danielle. The theme for March was musicals, and you'd be hard pressed to find a musical with a better pedigree than Chicago. Directed by Rob Marshall and based on the 1975 Broadway production, (which itself was based on a silent film from 1927, which was based on a 1926 play written by a journalist and based on real events) which was choreographed and directed by the legendary Bob Fosse, who basically invented jazz hands and was the man responsible for other classic musicals l

    Gravity [Film Club Extra]

    For those of you who wanted a second monthly slice of film club pie, here it is. @Con whittled down the nominations from this month to those he hasn't seen/finds most interesting and randomly selected a companion film to our main Film Club film, Aliens. That first selection is Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, this is a story about isolation. Cuaron started off wanting to make a film about adversity and survival in hostile locations, and decided that space is the ultimate hostile location. The most startling thing about this film, for me

    Aliens [RSC Film Club 03]

    This month's genre is (after much debate) sci-fi thrillers set in space or on a different planet. I know. The winning film is Aliens, nominated by @Spinnaker1981, James Cameron's sequel to Ridley Scott's classic horror film, Alien, and considered to be one of the greatest sequels of all time alongside The Godfather Part II and T2: Judgement Day. Released in 1986, the film sees protagonist Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) returning to LV-426 with a group of space marines after contact is lost with the newly formed colony there. Cameron adopted the bigger is better philosophy for thi
