All right so it's time to check out a wild Cronenberg classic. I actually know very little about this one besides a handful of things that I only barely remember. I didn't even know Debbie Harry was in this! I have seen a few Cronenberg movies which were definitely unique. Now I can add this to that slowly growing list. Let's see why this is considered so memorable and defining.

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, it is definitely a typical Cronenberg feature and I thought it was pretty good. At the time, Cronenberg was still transitioning to some more commercial features easier to digest for the mainstream audience but there were still many of his famous trademarks that you could find in hi... read more

David Cronenberg's films are technically very well made and while his films are very disturbing a good deal of his films also have either a dark or subtle wit, poignant emotion or even both. He is for me one of the most interesting and unlike any other out there directors, despite being known for body horror and originating it his films are much more than that. All these are the reasons for my adm... read more

The picture behind all the scratches looks crystal clear until the last two reels from when Max confronts Harlan at his studio, which were either projected or printed slightly out of focus.

“David Cronenberg's films are technically very well made and while his films are very disturbing a good deal of his films also have either a dark or subtle wit, poignant emotion or even both. He is for me one of the most interesting and unlike any other out there directors, despite being known for body horror and originating it his films are much more than that. All these are the reasons for my admiration and appreciation for him.

Will be honest in saying that 'Videodrome' is not quite one of my favourites of his, do much prefer the likes of 'Dead Ringers' and 'The Fly' and find that they are more accessible as films. It is still a very intriguing film that hits hard on the disturbance factor. Something of a transition film, with all the distinctive Cronenberg touches and themes b” read more

" Date: 10/10/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: It's so hard for me to pick a #1 favorite David Cronenberg movie because he has so many movies that I love. It's always a toss-up between this movie, The Fly (1986), and Naked Lunch (1991) in my opinion. After thinking about it lately, I think I decided to pick Videodrome as my #1 favorite Cronenberg movie. I do feel like Videodrome really represents what his filmography is truly about. In Videodrome, you have graphic nudity, body horror, surre"
