It’s remarkable that we live in a world in which there’s countless movies and TV shows available to watch at the simple click of a button. It’s also exciting to see movies looking better than ever on Blu-ray and now 4K Ultra HD. But for some people, myself included, nothing will ever replace the joy of going to the neighborhood video store, walking past rows and rows of VHS covers, and choosing a few to take home, crack open, and pop in the old VCR. If you’re one of those people, you might just be interested in Plastic Movies Rewound: The Story of the ’80s Video Boom—though be warned: there’s a dark, shady area beneath all of those happy memories you have…something this documentary series explores.
Plastic Movies Rewound dives deep into the history of the days of Betamax, VHS, video stores, and much more. We here at Geeks of Doom have an exclusive extended clip from the series to share with you, titled “The Bad Ol’ Days,” which can be found along with more information below.
Back in December of 2012 we found out that a sequel to the classic 1966 spaghetti western Django was being developed, with original star Franco Nero set and ready to reprise the title role.
Now comes word that the follow-up, titled Django Lives, is coming together quite nicely, and is moving forward. Point Blank Pictures has acquired the rights to make the sequel—something that was still being worked on when we first heard about the project—and some solid talent is being collected to bring the movie to life.
It’s always exciting for fans of western movie genre to see a new movie like Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained being buzzed about, primarily because we just don’t see new western films nearly as often as we would all like to.
Westerns were everywhere back in the day, even sprouting sub-genres like the spaghetti western. The best known spaghetti western was and is Sergio Leone’s Man with No Name trilogy, of course, which starred Clint Eastwood. But there’s many other great spaghetti westerns to enjoy, one of which being the 1966 film Django.
The movie starred Franco Nero, who has a cameo in Django Unchained, and it appears we may not have seen the last of Nero as the iconic character.
