What is Popcorn Cinema Show all about?
Welcome to Popcorn Cinema Show, in essence we are a movie review site but one that only specialises in the best movies past and present. That is of course very subjective so to give you a flavour of what we regard as the best here are the types of directors you will see featured on this site.
So expect plenty of movies covered from the likes of Hitchcock, Tarantino, John Carpenter, Scorsese, Argento, Nolan to name but a few.
That’s not all as Popcorn Cinema Show will also feature new movies from some of the smaller film companies, so keep an eye out for those.
Keep you up to date with all the weeks new movie releases at the cinema, via our cinema releases page.
But it’s Blu-ray at the heart of this site. We love seeing old classics given the Blu-ray treatment, restoring the picture and sound quality.
So we will let you know what future releases are due to be coming out, selected titles only though. Expect cult classics or lesser known gems via the news page.
However every week when there happens to be a noteworthy release on Blu-ray or DVD we select our picks of the week.
Other features include selected movie news, none of that celebrity gossip rubbish. If it is a movie, actor/actress or the movie industry we like or respect then it will appear here.
Films / Movies We Like
So what kind of movies are we into? We love variety of genres be it horror, sci-fi, film noir, drama, or action. What you won’t find here are movies such as Titanic or Dirty Dancing, it’s just not our thing. Think more The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Blade Runner, They Live, Ghostbusters, The Exorcist, Inception, American Hustle & The Good The Bad & The Ugly for the kind of range of films we love.
We will review and recommend movies (old or new) each week, some you will have heard of other you might not and that’s the point. There are many old or recent films that simply get forgotten or overlooked and we aim to shine a light on to those gems!
Here are a few of the types of films we cover:
- Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) Blu-ray Review
- Finding Forrester (2000) Blu-ray Review
- In A Lonely Place (1950) Blu-ray Review
- Jack Reacher Never Go Back (2016) Blu-ray Review
- Jamaica Inn (1939) Blu-ray Review
- Joe Kidd (1972) Blu-ray Review
- Night of The Big Heat (1967) Blu-ray Review
- Seven Deaths In The Cat’s Eye (1973) Blu-ray Review
- The Cat O’Nine Tails (1971) Blu-ray
- The Driller Killer (1979) Blu-ray Review
- The Hateful Eight (2015) Blu-ray Review
- The Killers (1946) Blu-ray Review
- The Last Detail (1973) Blu-ray Review
Film Restorations / Blu-ray Releases
At Popcorn Cinema Show we love to see older films restored and released on Blu-ray. The good news being that most releases are restored to a high level, although there are still a few companies who think they can get away with poor Blu-ray releases. You know who you are, and furthermore we will name and shame you.
Seeing a film you may not have seen for years fully restored on blu-ray will really blow you away! Especially if you have only seen it on television with a zoomed in incorrect aspect ratio with washed out colour.
TV/ Audio / Radio / Film Soundtracks
We will also cover selected television shows along with some audio only content such as classic radio and film soundtracks.
If that’s not enough you can take one of our many movie quizzes, check out the movie quote of the day or take part in the movie related poll.
If you like movies then you probably have something to say about them. To that end we would love you to share your opinions with us and other film enthusiasts, film buff etc..
Because it’s you guys commenting, agreeing or disagreeing with us that’s the whole point.
So please feel free to leave a comment on what you read or if you have any constructive points on how we can improve the site.
So are you a fan of the movies? Do you have movie nights? Or maybe film Fridays? Do you like talking about films or one in particular? If the answer to these questions is yes you have come to the right place and we would love to hear from you. If the answer is no then we encourage you to take a look at the rest of the Popcorn Cinema Show site and maybe we can convince otherwise!
