A very interesting interview with composer Brad Fiedel about his film scoring career and more...

Hear me out: why Johnny Mnemonic isn’t a bad movie

There's a UK digital release (no Blu-ray) on May 10 and it's getting a fair amount of press (even The Guardian published a review)

There’s also Dolph Lundgren, whose so-called ‘Street Preacher’ is massively underused, as he’s one of the film’s best components. Whether Lundgren is good or bad in the role is irrelevant, because he’s absolutely hilarious in it. The Street Preacher is basically a Terminator with more charisma – and as a result, all Dolph has to do is punch some people and shout lines like “Jesus is here!” before stabbing someone in the face. Good stuff.

As I mentioned earlier in the review, JOHNNY MNEMONIC isn’t afraid of having a bit of fun with scenes and lines throughout the movie but the best has to come from a hired assassin. Hidden behind a beard and long hair, Dolph Lundgren stars as Street Preacher; a religious nut who’s had that many augmentations and implants, he’s definitely more tech than human yet has a fixation on Christ and sees himself as a deliverer of God’s wrath… for the right fee. He’s a fearsome character, despite the hilarity of it, due to his overpowering strength and size. With Lundgren’s physique, I think they cast wisely and Lundgren seems to be having a ball playing Street Preacher with such camp delight. Though he feels a little shoe-horned into the movie, his presence is still welcomed and is without a doubt a memorable character, even if purely for the surreal absurdity of it.
