New Name New Style

Hello all!

It has been decided for this site to have a makeover. The site will now be specifically depicting movies, in their realm of criterion collection, classics, cults and craps.

This site was originally viewed to be touching all of entertainment, and sports, but that didn’t take off to where we wanted. The interests are still there, but it is best to limit it to one.

This page now is covered by two people, (Dillon and Jake)  giving in depth writings, vlogs, and podcasts to cover movies. The podcasts will give us the chance to talk about all sorts of entertainment, but within these writings we want to cover all bases from Horror, to indie films.

The “cults craps and classics” will be explored every month. Formerly known as just “Cults and Classics” there had to be another listings for some of these films, as just pure crap.

There will still be biopic posts, with some other content, but primarily it will all be touched upon the artful creation that is film. Our future interests as filmmakers, writers and directors will benefit us both to create this niche.

Cine N Dine will distinguish future movies to see, and perhaps ones not to see. Dillon, our second staff writer will maintain vlogs and post them with in depth looks at what it was we watched for the week. It is exciting to update all of our creativity, and we hope you like it to! Give us a follow!

The Cults and Classics of February

The winter time is never the biggest time for movies from January through March  so the search for cults and classics released within this time frame is definitely not the easiest. Every once and awhile you find some gems, and memorable ones but for the most part nothing. January and February movies are infamously known for movies that never quite deliver to grab your attention and are surely to be a complete bomb at the box office.


However, with the help of my good friend and correspondent Dillon Adair we have compiled a list of movies from this month’s release dates that weren’t so infamous, representing the Cults and Classics of February.


The Beach release date: Feb 2nd, 2000

‘The Beach’, starring a young Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tilda Swinton. Leo’s acting shows just the tip of the Iceberg to what acting chops he will accomplish for his future rolls. This movie is definitely one of his smallest and unknown rolls, but I still adore this movie for its landscapes, and paradise vibes. It all seems so precious to be within the moment of purity, and being on an island that no one knows about. Things are pure bliss, that is until things go askew and the whereabouts of the island become a known commodity. This movie is bar none a cult, it didn’t get well received, by critics, that may be because of its adaptation from the book that leave people scratching their heads. Nonetheless “The Beach” is underrated and holds intrinsic value towards original Leo fans, and those who love masterful landscapes.



The Harder They Come. release date: Feb 8th, 1973


The story of Jimmy Cliff, reggae musician whose dreams of becoming a musician is put into perspective. A young Jamaican man finds himself tied to corrupt record producers and drug pushers. This biopic is underrated, and this film does his music justice, no doubt. I have always listened to all kinds of Reggae and the record “The Harder They Come” is one of the most underrated records ever. The film maybe is not a masterpiece but the music is

This is also one of the biggest cult classics ever and it is very entertaining. The actor who played Jimmy has quite the vocal range himself. If you are a reggae fan, a Jimmy Cliff fan or just appreciate music altogether it is a must see film.



The Warriors Feb 9th, 1975


This movie is really a bit of both, being a cult and a classic. Truly brilliant angst, violence, and original on all levels. The concept is really a timeless and enchanting for just about everything. ‘The Warriors’ is a film that will make most viewers cringe at times, but you’ll forgive the shortcomings and praise with some exciting camera takes, the excellent use of music, and the good performance of David Patrick Kelly as the villainous antagonist. The character arcs are all on their own a work of great writing. The great moment in the movie is when Patrick Kelly, clicking together three soda bottles, coaxes the Warriors out of hiding by whining in what is a spur of the moment acting, “Warriors, come out and play!”



Saving Silverman Feb 9th, 2001


This movie became the revolution of all early 2000 comedies, like the American Pie series, and just about every other gag teen funny movie. ‘Saving Silverman’ however is of the few that actually worked with the help from actors Jack Black and Steve Zahn. This cult classic still never fails to make me laugh, and the chemistry between all of the characters is seemingly effortless. The endless obsessions with Neil Diamond all create a genuinality in this given film.



Silence of The Lambs February 13th, 1991


One of the most cringe worthy, and bad taste in your mouth kind of movie you could ever ask for. ‘Silence of The Lambs’ shall always live on, with the Jodie Foster’s incredible detective skills to Anthony Hopkins brilliant performance sending shivers down your spine. An absolute classic that should always be remembered. Not enough can be said, or put into words on how this movie translates into a psychological horror.



The Breakfast Club Feb 15th, 1985


Oh John Hughes, how I’ve missed your artistic directing and presence that gave us the great inspirations throughout the 80’s. My most beloved of his has to be this right here,‘The Breakfast Club’. I always admire movies that can be done in one single setting, with the same set of actors using all forms of creativity all in the same length of the movie. John Hughes’ pursuit in choosing these complete opposites says quite a lot about society in a day to day sequence. Here you have it in a school setting, 1980’s from sushi to eating pb&j’s. The rich kid or preppy girl, the bully, the jock, the weirdo, and the nerd. All in whom are serving the same amount of Saturday education time, for what was thought to be a drag became a memorable experience. Undeniably a classic.



Army of Darkness Feb 19th, 1993


Oh where to begin with this cult masterpiece? ‘Army of Darkness’ where taking from the satire end of things and tying it with some supreme violence and horror. This was a movie that paved the way for a lot of different horror comedies today. ‘Army of Darkness’ runs with spin offs and all sorts of serious moments followed up with comedic relief. The film really shows what fun can be created in the world of filmmaking with strong writing, pure creativity, and just having fun. The light is definitely shined over the darkness.


Office Space February 19th, 1999


What’s not to love about ‘Office Space’, honestly? So many quotes of “Yeah, that’d be great.”, and “You took my stapler.” After all these years it is still as funny as the first time I saw it. The fact of the matter however is that it is hardly ever mentioned, or remembered as it should be, like a ‘Clerks’, or ‘Jay and Silent Bob’. This only gives it more reason to be given the nod as a cult, and right where it should be.


Bottle Rocket Feb 21st, 1996


‘Bottle Rocket’ starring Owen and Luke Wilson in their debut acting roles, and now has since began the great start to their acting careers, as well as director Wes Anderson.’Bottle Rocket’ offers a long lasting adventure, with poignant film shots, and a clever dialogue to boot, all in which gave this movie it’s hidden treasures. Wes Anderson’s feel for his movies don’t go unappreciated, this movie was quite the start into his longed eccentric filming style. ‘Bottle Rocket’ reminds you of films you’ve seen before, but not quite in the same way and style done before, definitely a cult. The Wilson brothers have since carried on well, in their now twenty years of acting.

The Days of Incubus Fan Hood and Life with Dillon Adair

Do you ever just talk out song lyrics, but do it all the time to a point where you just to fuck with people? I do, it’s too much fun. I would always reference “Nice to Know You” by incubus. I was a gigantic fan of Incubus. Both me and my friend Dillon. That was our band. We’d get home from school and crank all of Incubus’ albums. He’d jam on his Uke and I’d try my best Brandon Boyd impression. We grew our love for Incubus and we made an entire wall of art from Brandon Boyd’s work, and all of the band’s pictures. Mike Einziger, DJ Killmore, Ben Kenney, Jose Pasillas and Good ole Dirk Lance and of course Brandon Boyd. We would emulate him in all levels. That’s our fan, our idol.


He still is, but Incubus just doesn’t feel the same as it once did, it doesn’t have us rage with joy, and poetic justice. Perhaps the new turnings for Incubus is experimenting on a whole other level. I respect it, but I sure do miss the days where the fan hood took our lifestyle, and the over played nature of Morning View was like a serene sunset.

The albums, I always had a trouble ranking them because they all held something special, but Morning View is my go-to and Make Yourself was their break-through with Drive, but now I’m finding my post high school self jamming to the likes of S.C.I.E.N.C.E with all the rage. A Crow Left of The Murder held strong points, and felt so political that it worked, all to their advantage, but seeing them live was an unforgettable event.


Over time we graduated, and ended up finding other interests in bands and dabbled in all sorts of things, like filming and making movies. The Little Wooden Monkey has been our biggest success, the first of three that we made.

Dillon also raps and writes. He wrote his first book and currently does book reviews and has come out with numerous albums. He’s the Dill of all trades. His rap name is Rad Dill, and is a big YouTuber. He’s easily the funniest person I’ve ever met.

The trips to Newbury Comics is what made the trips the fun of it all, spending hours picking and choosing what movies to watch, at a cheap price. He’s in the horror section while I’m looking up some pretentious film or some movie about some stoners or some bull shit like that. That’s how it was.

Same went for music and pop cultured nic-nacs, how cliche. Ha, yeah those were the days, and they’ll happen again.

Just with new memories, and adulthood lives, that will bring a whole other vibe.

Dillon moved to Washington and these trips became no longer, and I’ve been trying to excel in numerous things, like writing, and been studious at college. The future holds some bright things. Never give up, and we will reunite.
