From The Vault: Sean Connery’s 15 Best Films

James Bond_Connery_Banner

On this the day of Sir Sean Connery’s 90th Birthday Film Frak Adam is sharing a FROM THE VAULT post written 13 years ago as a 77th Birthday and Retirement celebration.

It’s been a long while since Film Frak Adam contributed a FROM THE VAULT post so here’s a brief explanation. Before Film Frak Adam was the Frakker he was John Doe and like everything else in this universe all cinema itself is interconnected on a molecular level. Slowly over time he plans to import many of his older reviews over to this new site under the banner of FROM THE VAULT. The format is simple, anytime he reviews a film here and it can be thematically (actor, Director, narrative etc) linked to a previous critique from the old site he will be sharing...

There’s a storm coming Frakkers,

Film Frak Adam and Jon continue their Comfort Food Flicks series with something a little different.

In Episode 3 we throw down about a subject that has torn them apart since we met. We are going to try and answer one of the most argued questions in the history of cinema, which is the superior film THE TERMINATOR (1984) or TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY

Listen, and understand! Film Frak is out there! We can’t be bargained with. We can’t be reasoned with. We don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And we absolutely will not stop… ever, until we have an answer!

Every cinema lover ha...

Writer/Director: Bob Byington

Starring: Kaley Wheless, Nick Offerman, Martin Starr, Jennifer Prediger, Keith Poulson, John Gatins

“Was this breaking the law?” our narrator asks repeatedly in this probing dark satire. It’s a question that can be aimed at multiple targets. Taking a dry ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT mockumentary approach this disquieting comedy is genuinely uncomfortable while amusing with its sensationalism free approach to a real-life sex scandal...

Greetings Frakkers.

Welcome to our second retro podcast special Comfort Food Flicks series.

You can watch Part 1 HERE

For those who missed last week’s launch. Here’s a quick rundown of what we are talking about.

During these “unprecedented” times of global turmoil and isolation we decided to list some of our Comfort Food Flicks.

Different from Favourites these are like the Chicken Soup of cinema to us. The films Jon and I turn to in challenging times to escape into the magical world of moving pictures. Movies we know inside out that have become part of our DNA. They are more like old friends at this point there to make us smile and remind us why we are addicted to the medium.

A review by Adam Lovett

Writer/Director: Abel Ferrara
Starring: Willem Dafoe, Dounia Sichov, Simon McBurney, Laurent Arnatsiaq

“I want to see if we can really film dreams—our fears, our regrets, our nostalgia.”Abel Ferrara for Sundance 

Our dreams seldom if ever make complete sense in the waking hours. More often than not they are utterly bewildering. That doesn’t mean we don’t find reward in the search for their meaning or recalling certain searing images from within them...
