Bugsy Malone – Down & Out (Children’s Musical)

Here’s another hit from the successful and ever-popular children’s musical, Bugsy Malone. This has to be one of the most under-rated musicals in history.

Top 10 Scariest Horror Movie Deaths

Horror movies, where would we be without them? Probably not hiding behind the sofa for a start. People love to be scared.

Top 20 Iconic Horror Movie Masks

It’s perhaps of concern that so many people like to dress up as horror villains and wear masks associated with evil intent. Halloween must be a psychologist’s wet dream.

Fool Me Twice – Robert B. Parker Thriller

Fool Me Twice by Robert B. Parker (Michael Brandman) Robert B. Parker died in 2010. This novel was released in 2013. It is not Parker’s own work, of course (unless a seance was employed), but that of Michael Brandman, approved by the Parker estate. It’s understandable why Brandman has been chosen. He writes like Parker […]

Top 10 Actors Who Refused To Shoot Scenes Together

Hmm…┬áRebel Voice is never sure about posts like this. The subject matter is of interest to readers but in essence is bullshit.

Another Top 10 Famous People Who Were Blacklisted In Hollywood

The entertainment business can be a fickle world, especially if you have independent opinions. Stars, rising and otherwise, are all concerned with their careers.

Top 10 Bizarre Villain Deaths

What would a movie be without a villain? Probably a documentary about making marshmallows. We all love to see the bad guys on screen. Some of them are mediocre, some not. Some are truly terrifying, some are bland. Some of them meet a standard demise, and some of them go out with a bang, perhaps […]

Top 10 Greatest Closing Shots In movies

We love the movies. We love them so much that we are willing to pay an extortionate price to sit in an uncomfortable seat with a lunatic behind us chomping loudly through a monster bag of crisps and slurping on lemonade whilst his bored girlfriend asks questions about Wolverine’s claws and excessively hairy body. “So […]

Top 10 Saddest Deaths In Horror Movies

A sad death in a horror movie? It seems to be a contradictory statement, as horror movies are not renowned for such sentimentality. Think Michael Myers in Halloween, Freddie Krueger in Nightmare on Elm Street, The Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz. What? That wasn’t a horror movie you say? Are […]
