Double ‘ooooooh’ seven – rare condition leaves stroke patient orgasmic after 007 music

Now that’s what we call a debut; some great films from first-time directors

Ahead of Jameson’s showing of John Crowley’s class debut Intermission next week, here’s a few more epic acts of first-time helming.

Colin Farrell’s best roles

He’s been on our screens for so long that it seems like he was always there, but the boy from Castleknock has come a long way since Ballykissangel. Here are a few of his most memorable roles.

Michael Fassbender

Best Leading Irish Men

Over the years Irish men have become unlikely sex symbols to folk across the water there in Hollywood.

Intermission

Top 5 Cult Flicks

It’s difficult to really get a grasp on what a cult film is, but for us it’s a noteworthy production that you just cant but help want to revisit again and again. There are some absolute belters on this list, and everyone of them stands the test of multiple viewings.

32213-xlarge

Cult Classic: Con Air

What better way to spend an evening than marveling at Nicolas Cage’s acting skills in a movie about convicts taking over a plane? Con Air has everything you need – action, one-liners and a star studded cast.

31889-xlarge

Cult Classic: Labyrinth

David Bowie all dressed up in leggings with big hair, and a 16 year old Jennifer Connelly playing mind games around a maze – cracking stuff is Labyrinth.

31586-xlarge

Cult Classic: Almost Famous

A movie about a teenage boy getting to write for Rolling Stone Magazine, hang out with rock stars and groupies – what’s not to like?

31230-xlarge

The Cult Classic: Lars and the Real Girl

Ryan Gosling seems to have it all – looks, body, hair and hot leading ladies. But how did he get here?

30725-xlarge

The Cult Classic: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Before they signed up to work on Iron Man 3 together, Robert Downey Jr. and Shane Black made a belter of a flick.

28965-xlarge

Cult Classic: Friday Night Lights

We’re generally not big sports movie people in Ireland; Well, American sports anyway. Those types of flicks just never really seem to travel particularly well. Friday Night Lights is a different kind of beast

28285-xlarge

Cult Classic: Hot Tub Time Machine

The funniest comedy about hot tubs that are also time machines ever made.

27770-xlarge

Cult Classic: Snatch

Slick, cheeky and with an endless supply of memorable quotes, Snatch proved to be Guy Ritchie’s last hurrah before the disastrous ‘Madonna’ years.

26837-xlarge

Cult Classic: Hot Rod

With man of the moment Channing Tatum set to star in an Evel Knievel biopic, we decided to revisit a hapless movie daredevil instead.

26962-xlarge

Cult Classic: Three Kings

One of the least heroic movies made with the backdrop of a real-life war, Three Kings is subversive, surprising and a huge amount of fun.

26929-xlarge

Cult Classic: Arlington Road

It was released the same year as The Sixth Sense yet even Bruce Willis’ chiller has competition for one of the best movie twists of all time.

27205-xlarge

Cult Classic: The Silence of the Lambs

Sure we’ve all placed lasagne on our faces and affected a Hannibal Lector accent at one point or another yet over 20 years on, The Silence of the Lambs has lost none of its power.

26808-xlarge

Cult Classic: From Dusk Till Dawn

Featuring Salma Hayek, vampires and George Clooney in one of his most unhinged roles, From Dusk Till Dawn is a delight that deserved to be sampled once more.

26780-xlarge

Cult Classic: The Usual Suspects

Forget The Sixth Sense or The Crying Game; if you want a film with a third act to blow your socks off, there’s still no competition for The Usual Suspects.

26771-xlarge

Cult Classic: Trainspotting

Lauded as one of the greatest British movies of all time, Trainspotting still feels timeless and utterly infectious sixteen years on.

26552-xlarge

Cult Classic: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

With Bill & Ted apparently gearing up for a third installment, we decided to revisit one of the guiltiest pleasures of the late 1980s – the duo’s “Excellent Adventure”.

26321-xlarge

Cult Classic: The Blair Witch Project

If you go down to the woods today, you’re probably not in for a big surprise – unless you have an undiscovered allergy to pollen. However, three actors’ trip gave audiences the fright of their lives in 1999.

26073-xlarge

Cult Classic: Event Horizon

Forget about The Matrix; what about Laurence Fishburne’s other sci-fi classic – the underwatched and underrated Event Horizon?

25815-xlarge

Cult Classic: Glengarry Glen Ross

As Glengarry Glen Ross hits the stage in Dublin this week, we thought it best to revisit the 1992 cult classic of the same name.

25533-xlarge

Cult Classic: Napoleon Dynamite

With llamas, liger and the most listless teenager you’ve ever met, was Napoleon Dynamite one of the most curious pop culture phenomenons of the past decade?

25306-xlarge

Cult Classic: Elite Squad

When the news was announced that director Jose Padilha was to return a RoboCop reboot, fans were puzzled, yet he already has created a cult classic of his own.

25047-xlarge

Cult Classic: A History of Violence

A dizzyingly explosive and brutal watch, A History of Violence was criminally underwatched at its time of release yet thankfully it has became a cult classic in the passing years.

24520-xlarge

Cult Classic: Zoolander

After introducing us to a world of “walk-offs”, eugoogoolisers and Mer-men, the least we do was to reward Zoolander a spot as one of our cult classic picks.

23321-xlarge

Cult Classic: Vanilla Sky

If you ever need a signifier of Tom Cruise’s star power, all you need to do is wonder how he managed to make Cameron Crowe curiosity Vanilla Sky cross $203 million worldwide.
