Revoltin’ Reviews: Pieces, The Mutilator, and The Vincent Price Collection III

13 hours ago | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

This one’s going to be a cake walk, creeps: two vintage 80s slasher flicks and some Vincent Price. Sometimes ancient talismans procured in questionable eBay lots really do work as advertised!

Pieces

•             Release Date: Available March 1st on Special edition Blu-ray (2 Blu-rays + CD)

•             Written By: Dick Randall, Joe D’Amato

•             Directed By: Juan Piquer Simón

•             Starring: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Braña, Paul L. Smith

Pieces had a weird effect on me when I first saw it. I remember thinkin’ it was one of the greatest slasher films I’d e’er slapped my eerie eyeballs upon, as it pretty much had everything that makes the genre so outrageous, only amped up to the nth degree. I also remember thinkin’ “Man, I need to own this film right away; it’s the bat’s knees!” I then sat down, ate a slice of pizza (maybe it was a sandwich… »

Oscar’S Year Of Visual Effects, and The Art Of Seeing And Believing

6 February 2016 9:16 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

If you have been living and routinely interacting with other human beings over the last month, you’ve probably heard one or two words involving this year’s Academy Awards and the heated controversy over the startling lack of both films and people of color among the nominees. Personally, I think that the real focus of concern ought to be less on the back end-- awards handed out for films which were financed and/or studio-approved, scheduled for production and filmed perhaps as much as two or three years ago-- and more on addressing the lack of cultural and intellectual and experiential diversity among those who have the power to make the decisions as to what films get made in the first place. This is no sure-fire way to ensure that there will be a richer and more consistent representation of diverse creative voices when it comes time for Hollywood »

The three Ninja films produced by 1980’s low-budget kings Cannon Films that like many of the studio’s films have become cult hits since their initial release.

The duo has bought Cannon Films in 1979 and went on to make their mark on American cinema and pop – culture through the 1980’s before going bust in 1994. They introduced us to any wild films, »

8 Best Action Movies Of The 1980s

11 January 2016 11:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

If you’re watching a movie with a scene where the indestructible cop hero clings to the roof of a speeding vehicle, it was probably made in the 1980s. In a lot of these films, the driver doesn’t attempt to swerve or hit the brakes, he just holds his hands in front of his face before crashing through a plate glass window.

At Cannon Films, the home of Chuck Norris and Charles Bronson, B-grade action films seemed to roll off the conveyor belt every week as founders Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus sought to fashion new stars in the mould of Arnold Schwarzenegger. These cheapies were cranked out by no-name filmmakers, scored by musically ungifted composers who owned an inordinate number of synthesizers and invariably concluded with freeze-frame endings following the climactic rooftop confrontation.

Elsewhere, Sylvester Stallone was setting the standard for over the top, wildly jingoistic »

The Revenant – The Review

7 January 2016 8:45 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Acclaimed Mexican director Alejandro Iñárritu has stepped out from the canned stage lights and into the natural light. Going from the backstage existential crisis of Birdman to the frigid survival in the wild of The Revenant is quite a change of scenery. In the months leading up to the film, it seemed that that was what everyone was talking about. Iñárritu and DiCaprio were teaming up and filming a raw and intense movie out in the middle of nowhere. What a drastic change of pace for them both. In interviews and featurettes, the physical and mental hardships surrounding the production were highlighted, occupying the spotlight more than anything else.

The Revenant truly is breathtaking. The snowy landscapes are awe-inspiring. The performances are palpable. The action is gritty and fierce. Emmanuel Lubezki’s camerawork catches every heavy breath on camera. Iñárritu rubs your nose in the mud for over 2 and a half hours. »

In the least surprising news of the year, Hans Zimmer will be scoring Christopher Nolan‘s WWII drama Dunkirk.

Watch a recent talk with László Nemes and Géza Röhrig on Son of Saul:

Movie Mezzanine‘s Josh Spiegel looks at the recent trajectories of Leonardo DiCaprio‘s and Tom Hardy‘s careers:

It’s easy—maybe a little too easy—to make fun of DiCaprio for his preparations for The Revenant, but the way that he works the press versus how Hardy works is a fascinating contrast. DiCaprio has been a movie star for the better part of his life (we’re only a couple years away from »
