Blu-ray Review: The Larry Fessenden Collection

25 November 2015 11:03 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If ever there was to be a Mt. Rushmore of modern horror, there’s no question that the face of Larry Fessenden would get prominent placement. One of the patron saints of indie horror, Fessenden is a true auteur and a true original whose incredible career is now being celebrated with the Scream Factory release of The Larry Fessenden Collection, containing four of his films and hours of bonus features that help illuminate just what a vital voice Fessenden has been in the genre for more than three decades. This is one of the best horror releases of the year.

Fessenden (whose Glass Eye Pix has been around since the mid-’80s, helping produce films including The House of the Devil, I Sell the Dead, Stake Land and Late Phases) has built a career on twisting and subverting the conventions of classic horror films and filtering them through his own distinctive lens. »

Werner Herzog Announces First German Rogue Film School

23 November 2015 3:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Everyone's favorite cinematic curmudgeon, Werner Herzog, has announced that he's bringing his rogue film school teachings to Munich. Lucky attendees can learn what that means if they are one of the selected few; 65 students maximum will be admitted. And who wouldn't jump at the chance to learn from a man known for living on the edge of societal norms? This is the guy whose nihilist leanings have been made into pretty, inspirational-looking memes --- lest you forget that he's responsible for several decades of films, such as the mental Nicolas Cage flick Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Nosferatu the Vampyre, and Aguirre, the Wrath of God.Because it's not an actual film school (Herzog refutes such institutions and will be ignoring technical advice) he'll...

Why Remaking Great Films Is A Bad Idea

22 November 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway questions the wisdom of remaking classic films…

In the 1980s Frank Oz, the man who is both Miss Piggy and Yoda, asked Michael Caine if he wanted to star in a remake of Bedtime Story, a 1964 film that despite starring David Niven and Marlon Brando, was not a success. Why Caine asked, would anyone want to remake a film that nobody liked the first time around? Oz replied that there was little point making a new version of a film that was good the first time around, as it couldn’t be improved on, but with a bad film, you could make a better version of it.

Caine signed up, the film – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – was a huge hit, he was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance and the film lives on as a musical to this day.

I thought of that this week »

12 “Bad” Films More Fun Than Citizen Kane

20 November 2015 3:40 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Released in 1941, Citizen Kane’s depiction of a William Randolph Hearst-like publisher attracted the ire of Hearst himself, who used his influence to ensure that the film played to mostly empty houses. Fearing a lawsuit from the publisher, many cinema owners refused to screen the picture, which lost hundreds of thousands of dollars for Rko.

Kane’s status as “The Greatest Film Ever Made” grew after it gained popularity on television, where it caught the attention of critic Andrew Sarris, who called it “the work that influenced the cinema more profoundly than any American film since Birth Of A Nation.” Propelled by similarly laudatory reviews from Pauline Kael and David Thomson, Kane topped Sight & Sound’s top ten list for the first time in 1962, a position it held until 2012 when it was dethroned by Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

But you know what? Kane just isn’t that much fun to watch. »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Wicker Man

16 November 2015 12:14 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Hollywood is remake crazy these days, so Cinelinx is taking a look at what makes a good remake and what makes a bad one. We'll be examining examples of some cinematic remakes; some that work and some that don’t. In the second in our series articles, we look at a remake that definitely did Not work...The Wicker Man (2006)!  

In the previous article, which looked at Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and discussed what makes a good remake: It has to pay homage to the original while also adding a new twist to an old idea. It needs to be part faithful and part innovative. Above all, of course, it should be a well-written, well-produced movie. The 2006 remake of the Wicker Man failed on all counts.

For those unfamiliar with the original 1973 British cult classic, it’s an eerie mystery/horror hybrid about a devoutly religious Christian police officer named Sergeant Howie, »

The 10 Best Brian De Palma Films

13 November 2015 2:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Brian De Palma has become the directorial litmus test of cinephiles everywhere. To supporters, he stands as a startling visual genius with a penchant for set pieces and lurid subject matter. To naysayers, he remains a lowbrow imitator who spends his studio budgets chasing the ghosts of Alfred Hitchcock and Jean-Luc Godard. Great director or high class hack? Inconsistent misogynist or Master of the Macabre? Much like his fractured narratives, the answer is never an easy one to attain.

Both sides provide ample support for their case. De Palma’s resume is riddled with enough hollow imitations (Sisters [1973], Raising Cain [1992]) and bloated commercial flops (The Bonfire of the Vanities [1990], The Black Dahlia [2006]) to sink any director. But even in misfires such as these, an undeniable attention to detail remains.

The split screen cover-up of Sisters or the heartbreaking screen tests of The Black Dahlia are breathtaking in scope and execution, »

Charlie Kaufman’s Big Musical Could Still Happen if You Like Surreal Comedy and Have a Ton of Money

12 November 2015 7:28 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Charlie Kaufman's stop-motion film Anomalisa has earned glowing reviews on the festival circuit this year, but its release also marks the first time the writer-director's name has been in the press for a good while—at least since his last feature, the mind-bending Synecdoche, New York came out in 2008. In an interview with Uproxx, Kaufman talked about how spent much of that time Frank and Francis, a movie musical that would star (deep breath) Jack Black, Nicholas Cage, Steve Carell, Elizabeth Banks, Kevin Kline, Catharine Keener, Paul Reubens, and Jacki Weaver. The film, as you might expect from the writer behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation, had a truly intricate plot, in which a film director goes to war with an overly critical film blogger. But given a cast of that size, and the complexity of the pitch, however, Frank and Francis struggled to pull together »

Charlie Kaufman Explains Why Star-Studded 'Frank Or Francis' Fell Apart, Says It Could Still Happen

12 November 2015 1:57 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the reasons Charlie Kaufman hasn't made a feature film since 2008's "Synecdoche, New York" is his unfortunately failed attempt to mount the meta movie musical, "Frank Or Francis." Slated to star an impressive ensemble including Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, Steve Carell, Elizabeth Banks, Kevin Kline, Catherine Keener, Paul Reubens, and Jacki Weaver, the movie would've been a Hollywood set tale about a pretentious filmmaker and his online his nemesis, with characters including a fat-suit-wearing comedian who is also known as The Emcee, and Richard’s Head, a superwiz computer-brain programmed to write hit screenplays. It's pretty bonkers on paper, but with that cast, you'd think it would get made. And it nearly did. A few years back, Black revealed that money was holding things up. "We are just about 10 million dollars shy of the cost to make it, so if anyone out there reading this can scrape together a cool 10 mil, »

Film Review: ‘My All-American’

12 November 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Based on fact but mired in cliches, “My All-American” pays respectful tribute to U. of Texas football legend Freddie Steinmark (1949-71) with the sort of on-the-nose sincerity that transforms biography into hagiography. It’s not easily categorized as faith-based entertainment, despite repeated references to Steinmark’s daily mass attendance and a heavily dramatic scene involving prayer. But it likely will play best with audiences for whom football in general, and college football in particular, is a kind of secular religion, complete with its own set of martyrs.

Written and directed by Angelo Pizzo, whose past credits as a screenwriter (“Hoosiers,” “Rudy,” “The Game of Their Lives”) define him as a specialist in inspirational sports sagas, “My All-American” traces Steinmark’s short but eventful life — from his salad days in his native Denver to his impressive performances as a safety for the storied 1969 Ut Longhorns football team.

'Fantasia': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About This Disney Classic

12 November 2015 3:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Fantasia" wasn't a huge hit when it was first released 75 years ago (on November 13, 1940).

Since then, however, over the course of multiple re-releases, the Disney feature has earned a reputation as a masterpiece for its blend of lushly recorded classical music and dazzling Technicolor animation. It eventually became a huge success in both theaters and on home video and spawned several sequels and spinoffs, not to mention parodies by other studios.

Still, as many times as you've enjoyed the ballet-dancing hippos or Mickey Mouse's botched attempt at using magic to shirk drudgery, there's a lot you may not know about "Fantasia." Read on, and watch out for those magic mushrooms.

1. The germ of the film began when Walt Disney bumped into legendary Philadelphia Orchestra conductor Leopold Stokowski (pictured) outside Chasen's restaurant in Hollywood. Disney told Stokowski of his idea to make one of his trademark "Silly Symphony" shorts out »

10 Most Shocking Video Game Scandals Of All Time

11 November 2015 9:08 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


To the ignorant outsider, video games may just look like toys made by passionate geeks and developers who spend their whole lives in dark rooms, coding and creating the things that they love. But beneath this endearing facade, video games are an industry that at the worst of times, is just as crooked and corrupt as Nicholas Cage in the Bad Lieutenant, or FIFA.

Most of the time, video game scandals rise up not because of the developers themselves; publishers deceive gamers by passing glossy pre-release footage off as the finished game, only for it to be far inferior upon release, websites give suspiciously high scores to awful games, and gamers themselves have degenerated into tribal frenzies of abuse and cyber-bullying that seemingly shook all of society.

As the industry has grown in prominence, the scale and number of scandals has increased exponentially, and its no coincidence »

DVD: Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Missing Pimp

10 November 2015 2:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

New on DVD & BluRay this week are three films which awards season completists will need to see...


Mr Holmes in which 76 year-old spry Sir Ian McKellen is aged up to play the world's most famous detective at 93 years of age as he mind begins to deteriorate. Mr Holmes was a leggy arthouse hit this summer but can that be converted into an awards run for Sir Ian? We shall see... Tangerine, one of the year's best films, follows Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) & Alexandra (Mya Taylor), best friends & hookers, as they search for Sin-Dee's boyfriend/pimp (James Ransone) who cheated on her "with real fish!" during her latest prison stint. It's the most unexpected and awesome Christmas comedy ever. It's already snagged multiple Gotham nominations but pray for Golden Globe, Bfca, Spirit nominations and top ten lists because this Sean Baker gem deserves them. Trainwreck, or The Coronation of Amy Schumer as 2015's It Girl. »

'Star Wars Battlefront' Live-Action Trailer Starring Anna Kendrick

9 November 2015 9:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is Star Wars Battlefront about to unleash the Rapture? That's the idea on display in a new live-action trailer for this highly anticipated video game. All across the world, people are disappearing, with their clothes dropping to the ground just as Obi-Wan's did when Darth Vader struck him down in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. But even though the original Star Wars theme soars on in the background, the opening of this latest sneak peek at game play is reminiscent of Rapture scenes from both the hit HBO series The Leftovers and the Nicolas Cage biblical thriller Left Behind. Luckily, there is a big star at the center of this latest Star Wars game trailer to explain it all.

Yes, Pitch Perfect's own Anna Kendrick is on hand to witness the disappearance of millions of Americans as they teleport into the Star Wars universe via the »

Best Casino/Poker/Gambling Movie Actors

8 November 2015 4:36 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Being a successful gambler, especially in poker, requires a certain amount of acting skill. Maintaining a calm and rational demeanor no matter if you are on a hot streak or a dry spell (and, of course maintaining a stonewall poker face) is key to making the hobby a lucrative one.

As hard as that is to do in real life, we admire those talented actors that are able to do it in front of a camera and film crew. Below is our list of the best casino, poker, and gambling movie actors.

5) Edward Norton

While Matt Damon has appeared in a few gambling-related movies, and John Malkovich’s role as Teddy Kgb makes Rounders the most quoted gambling movie out there, for us it’s Edward Norton’s role in the 1998 poker drama that carries the film for us.

First poster for USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage starring Nicolas Cage

5 November 2015 3:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first poster and banner have arrived online for USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, which tells the true story of the sinking of the American heavy cruiser during World War II and sees Mario Van Peebles directing a cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Tom Sizemore, Thomas Jane and Cody Walker. As with all Nic Cage posters these days, it’s pretty hilarious…

In the waning days of WWII, the USS Indianapolis secretly delivered one of two atomic bombs that would eventually end the war. The Japanese attacked and sank the heavy cruiser. The USS Indianapolis’ mission was so classified it was not reported missing. No one knew they had been attacked until four days later. Of the 1196 crewmen, nearly 300 went down with the ship. The remaining survivors were stranded in the shark-infested waters of the Philippine Sea. The crew of the USS Indianapolis endured hunger, thirst, heat, delirium, relentless shark »
