The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“How We Made Mary Poppins” – Karen Dotrice (Jane Banks) recounts the story behind the story – including some shock at Julie Andrews smoking a practically perfect cigarette.

“The Strange Case of RoboCop 2” – Sam Strange at Badass Digest puzzles out a giant mess with a silly nougat center.

“Behold the Passion…the Spectacle…the Splendor of ‘Trailers From Hell’: An Interview with Joe Dante” – With a title that long and expository, I’m not sure I have to write anything here.
