Videodrome

David Cronenberg is the man. I miss the ol 80’s movies with mad blood and great special effects (fuck the green screen makes shit lazy!!). I remember watching the fly being so freaked out at the transformation from man to fly. Videodrome is before the fly but the film is dark, witty, cynical, and all the things Cronenberg is known for in his other films. Videodrome is about a dude who run a wild tv station back in the early 80’s (channel 83) He is always on the verge of trying to find that shit that would be the next big thing. He don’t care if its sex, murder or mayhem! The dude (James Woods by the way) stumbles across a rouge signal for a show called “Videodrome”. The show is pure torture but is the catalyst for everything. That’s all im saying fuck that peep the flick, Its classic and the special effects are superb in true 80’s fashion.

Coen Brothers have done it again, brilliant cinema in the same vein as “Fargo” and “Raising Arizona”  Ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, waaaay over their ignorant heads.
