How The Neverending Story Taught Us To Love 80s Synth-Pop

Exactly 30 years ago today, the world saw The NeverEnding Story for the first time. It was a time before CGI, when you had to make fantasy movies with puppets. But nothing feels old fashioned about the synth-laden, sunset-coloured theme song by Giorgio Moroder. The flying dragon-dog was pretty cool, too.


Watch La Jetee, The Incredible Experiment That Inspired 12 Monkeys

Syfy’s forthcoming 12 Monkeys TV show is actually more than 50 years in the making. If you read the previews, you’ll know that the show is based on the 1995 Terry Gilliam flick starring Bruce Willis.

But I think he like doesn’t really want to do it anymore.” That’s one quote from a short film by Mike Mills where he talks to children of Silicon Valley employees about changes in technology and how it will affect society.


666 Park Avenue Is A Modern-Day Rosemary's Baby

I watch all my TV online, so I completely missed 666 Park Avenue when it aired on ABC from September 2012 to July 2013. I only stumbled across it recently when I was trawling the bottomless pit of B-grade horror that Netflix has. To my surprise, the show wasn’t complete garbage.

Alien Turns 35 Today -- You Should Watch It Right Now

Exactly 35 years ago today, Alien hit the theatres. It’s a sad truth that we’re supposed to celebrate the spawn of this spine-rattling franchise less than two weeks after the death of H.R.

That said, there’s no better way to celebrate the work of a genius than by spending your Sunday night staring at his creations.
