About

NotQuiteHollywoodWe are as mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore! Enough with the average fit-for-13-year-old-teenie-girls Hollywood popcorn bullshit. We want the real cinema back. Movies from the good old days, the all or nothing days, the Vanishing Point days. We want all the fun, the thrills, the excitement of movies that dared to stand the hell out. That’s why we started this blog, to bring to your attention the shit we like, so you may discuss with us and others and discover new things, different things and especially old things. Because really, if you don’t want to see a movie made after 1980, you don’t have to. There are enough friggin’ amazing movies out there that wait for you to be discovered.

Who are we? A bunch of cineasts who prefer Leone over Spielberg, AIP over Disney and Elke Sommer over Reese Witherspoon (sorry Reese).

We’ll post more about us, once we got this show on the road. This website was established on a cold November night 2010 by Sebastian Haselbeck and is an experimental addition to the CineCoalition. We will provide more info soon. Sebastian runs this as a hobby with mucho support by Pete Roberts of the Grindhouse Cinema Database. Sebastian has a real life, and is managing director of the Internet and Society Collaboratory in Berlin, and in business development at a software localization company called Lingohub, based in Austria.
