The Ipcress File (1965)
“Len Deighton took the Ian Fleming spy formula and grafted on the anti-authority attitude, first person narration and wisecracking dialogue of the 1930s and ‘40s hard-boiled detective novels of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.” BFI Screen Online. “Michael Caine, Zulu under his belt and Alfie ahead, is the cheeky working class but aspirational bright spark hero par excellence, captured at the exact moment he became a star.” Empire.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
“Director George A Romero redefined the meaning of horror for fear-sated audiences in the 1960s with this seminal classic.” Radio Times. “The original and the best.” Empire.
Thunder Force (2021)
“Thunder Force’s Cast Includes Oscar Darlings, Comedians, And Marvel Movie Actors
In addition to Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy (for Bridesmaids) and Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer (for The Help) as the leads, the cast of Thunder Force incorporates a number of versatile and familiar talents. Since the film is a comedy, we can be thankful to see Jason Bateman as a man with crab-like attributes and, also being a superhero flick, it is cool to see Ant Man’s Bobby Cannavale and Guardians of The Galaxy Pom Klementieff abandon their more heroic MCU reputations to play villains this time.” Cinema Blend
