Cinema Eclectica 26 – Sexy Funny Games with Sad Keanu

This week we’re neck-deep in a crazy heatwave – which makes for a much looser show because of all the melting brains. Our featured movies in our “Off The Shelf” section are Samuel Fuller’s Forty Guns, Frank Borzage’s lost film-noir Moonrise and Eli Roth’s latest

Cinema Eclectica 25 – Groucho Mutant Ninja Turtles

Any time we get news that can give us the inspiration for an episode title like that, we know it’s generally going to be a good news week. In “Off The Shelf” we take a look at Albert Serra and Second Run’s Story of My

Cinema Eclectica 24 – Things Went A Little Bit Kryten

After getting lost in the deep, dark shrubbery that is the news (and thus making this one of our longest shows so far), we dive straight into the still waters of “Off the Shelf” with an eclectic mix of silver-screen goodness. On this episode Rob

Cinema Eclectica 18 – There’s Only One Swinton

On this week’s episode there are some dark, disturbing revelations. In our Off the Shelf section we take a look at Sidney Lumet’s 1970’s  classic Network, a boxset featuring the work of Chris Marker, the rather alarming soap opera-like Be My Baby, and the silent

Cinema Eclectica 17 – Not Chick Flick Eclectica

This week’s episode features one of the most anticipated releases of the last few years – which means heated and very divisive opinions are on the cards (there would be no point otherwise). With a full cast of unsupportive characters Off the Shelf enjoys Nikkatsu
