Scenes I Love: Centurion


In honor of tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones which was once again directed by the great British filmmaker Neil Marshall I’ve chosen a favorite scene from his last film as the latest Scenes I Love.

Tonight’s episode saw the pivotal Battle of Castle Black which showcases the battle of Mance Rayder’s 100,000-strong Wildlling army against the few hundred Night’s Watch defenders of Castle Black and The Wall. It was a very bloody affair that saw more than a few important deaths. It also highlighted the fact that Neil Marshall has to be one of the great action directors of this era. He’s able to work both with CG and practical effects and definitely do so on a budget (yet still making the whole episode look cinematic).

For those who have followed Marshall’s work they won’t be surprised by his work on Game of Thrones. He’s done large-scale battles before and none more bloody, brutal and chaotic as the ambush battle in the forest in Centurion.

6 Happening Trailers For The Peace and Love Generation

Welcome to another edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation Film Trailers!  This week, the trailer kitties braved being hugged and loved by a bunch of hippies to bring back these 6 trailers.  Let’s see what they found!

1) Musical Mutiny (1970)

Let’s start things out with this trailer for a documentary about a bunch of bands that I’ve never heard of.  However, while I may not know the music, how can I not enjoy a trailer that proclaims itself to be advertising a film for a turned on audience?

2) Sting of Death (1965)

This trailer freaked me out a little — largely because of the whole “Death Stalks the Dancers” thing.  Seriously, leave us dancers alone.  Go stalk someone else.

3) The Hippie Revolt (1967)

Those crazy hippies!

4) Unholy Matrimony (1966)

This trailer is definitely NSFW — which makes sense when you consider that this film shows what happens when you mix S.E.X. with L.S.D.  Myself, I just like the histrionic narration.

5) The Hard Road (1970)

The hippie mayhem continues in this trailer.

6) The Hallucination Generation (1966)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from compiling these trailers, it’s that dropping acid leads to dancing.

What do you think, Trailer Kitty?

Oh no!  Hippies!

Oh no! Hippies!
