Bronson’s Back! Death Wish 3 Midnights This Weekend at The Hi-Pointe!

20 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“They killed the Giggler, man!”

Death Wish 3 screens midnights this Friday and Saturday (April 3rd and 4th) at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117) as part of Destroy the Brain’s Late Night Grindhouse Film Series

The wonderfully preposterous Death Wish 3 (1985) sends Charles Bronson to a New York City portrayed as a vast burned-out wasteland with tenements occupied by terrified old people and the entire city dominated by gangs of unwashed thugs (and not a cop in sight). I’ve seen Death Wish 3 many times over the years and it becomes funnier as it ages. The action is overblown to comic proportions and I lose count of all the people who are shot, blown up, stabbed, beaten, pushed off of rooftops, and generally maimed during the course of the film. Death Wish 3 plays like Charles Bronson’s 90-minute shooting gallery. Thugs pop up from behind cars, »

Run All Night -The Review

12 March 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It would appear that Liam Neeson is continuing his Charles Bronson-esque revenge spree with Run All Night. After countless of films that are all marketed in the same style as Taken and its sequels, you might be surprised to hear that this new genre exercise is more than just a run and gun thriller. In fact, thanks to a script that lends the occasionally exhaustive action some deeper meaning, Run All Night is one of the best films Liam Neeson has done in years. Now if only Jaume Collet-Serra was as interested in highlighting the drama as much as all the running around, we might have more than just a “good” action marathon.

Neeson plays former hitman and now current alcoholic Jimmy Conlon. Years ago he became notorious in the New York crime scene for his skills of disposing targets. His former boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris) has also »

Exclusive Cool Video: Top 10 Characters Out For Revenge

12 March 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When you think about revenge movies, you may think of all three Taken films. Or maybe you are more into the cult-themed flicks and are reminded of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill or Brandon Lee in The Crow. Or, you could go all the way back to the immortal Charles Bronson in Death Wish. Whatever your favorite, revenge movies have a special place in Hollywood. From the schlocky to the Oscar nominated, revenge is a guttural human instinct that we can all relate to. Avenging our loved ones or »

Plot: An alcoholic hitman (Liam Neeson) is forced to kill his beloved employer's (Ed Harris) son in order to protect his own estranged offspring (Joel Kinnaman). Now, father and son are forced to spend Christmas eve dodging assassins and and dirty cops, with the two being marked for death by every gangster in the city.

‘John Wick’ Review

10 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki, Omer Barnea, Toby Leonard Moore, Daniel Bernhardt, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick | Written by Derek Kolstad | Directed by Chad Stahelski

Keanu Reeves has, in recent years, seemingly been making headway in to the action genre with films like 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi.Gone are the days of Keanu the funny mam, Keanu the heartthrob leading man love-interest and in has come a stone-faced bearded bad-ass. Yet, whilst both the aformentioned films have there fans – me included – neither really set the genre alight. However all that changes with John Wick – a return to the R-rated, arse-kickery of the genres heyday, that isn’t afraid to get bone-crunchily violent and bullet-riddled with blood…

John Wick features Keanu Reeves in the titular role – a hitman who left the business five years ago after finding the love of a good woman. »

'Run All Night': Film Review

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Liam Neeson moves one step closer to becoming the new Charles Bronson in Run All Night, the latest slab of amped-up urban mayhem he's found to perpetuate his rugged-leading-man-of-a-certain-age success now that the Taken series has run its course. Playing a longtime Brooklyn hitman who gets to take down a few more baddies during a long night's journey to oblivion, the actor has again found a violence-based story driven by family threat and the basest human emotions, which, along with clockwork outbursts of nasty low-life action, look to deliver a quick

Review: Powerful & Haunting Documentary 'The Life And Mind Of Mark DeFriest'

6 March 2015 2:03 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the late 1970s, a 19-year-old Mark DeFriest caught four years in jail for picking up some tools before his father’s will was probated. His stepmother called the police and Mark made a run for it, landing him in jail. Mark’s tendency to run has kept him there ever since. A compulsive (and talented) escape artist, DeFriest’s constant disciplinary infractions have extended his sentence to nearly 2080. The documentary, “The Life And Mind of Mark DeFriest,” the result of a 13-year effort by director Gabriel London, documents the horrific odyssey that DeFriest has made through the Florida prison system, a journey with no end in sight. A sort of American Charles Bronson (the prisoner), DeFriest’s antics have a mythic quality to them, and he is notorious in the prison system for his ballsy jailbreaks and mechanical skill, garnering himself the nickname “Houdini.” The son of a WWII Oss officer, »

"The Magnificent Seven" To Be Remade Starring Denzel Washington And Ethan Hawke

3 March 2015 3:39 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Director John Sturges' classic 1960 Western "The Magnificent Seven" will be remade as a big screen MGM Western by director Antoine Fuqua. Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Haley Bennett are the first cast members to be announced.  The original film was based on another classic, director Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". For decades, MGM has been trying to launch a remake of the film but the closest the studio came was with a moderately successful TV series. At various times, names like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom Cruise had been linked to remakes that never bore fruit. The first movie spawned three big screen sequels between 1966 and 1972. At the time it premiered, the only big name stars in the cast were Yul Brynner and Eli Wallach. However, the success of the movie helped launch supporting actors Steve McQueen,  Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and James Coburn to full-fledged leading man status. German »

Ethan Hawke Joins The Magnificent Seven

3 March 2015 12:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Its journey along the trail may have been a slow one, but it seems that the Magnificent Seven remake is picking up the pace thanks to a new addition to the cast. Setting up a reunion for the Training Day trifecta, Variety have reported that Boyhood Oscar nominee, Ethan Hawke, will be saddling up with Denzel Washington under the direction of Antoine Fuqua. The film will also star Chris Pratt, who wasn’t in Training Day, and we really hope won’t have to suffer awkward laughter thanks to all the inside jokes that’ll be had as a result.

A westernised remake in itself of Seven Samurai, the 1960s film saw a lone gunman enlist the help of six other men to rid a small Mexican farming village of bandits. The new take, which was passed from The Blind Side’s John Lee Hancock to True Detective »

The Magnificent Seven Cast Is Starting To Look... Magnificent

2 March 2015 8:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The original John Sturges-directed The Magnificent Seven had an absolutely stacked cast. Playing the titular group, the western brought together the likes of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That obviously gives the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed remake quite a standard to live up to, but the film is well on its way to making something. well, magnificent. News has come down from Variety that yet another big name has joined the Magnificent Seven cast . so we figured we.d shine a spotlight on this rapidly growing, awesome ensemble. The film still isn.t done adding big names, but here.s who is on board so far: When Antoine Fuqua first signed on to direct The Magnificent Seven last summer, it only took a matter of days before he was able to convince Denzel Washington to go on the adventure »

God Told Me To – Midnights at The Hi-Pointe This Weekend

1 March 2015 8:40 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“….God told me to!”

God Told Me To screens midnights this Friday and Saturday (March 6th and 7th) at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117)

In the Fall of 1976, my father dropped me off at the Hi-Pointe Theater after church one Sunday because I’d been bugging him about seeing the new horror film Rabid by David Cronenberg, a director who would soon become a favorite. Rabid was the first half of a double feature that afternoon, paired with something called Demon, which I knew nothing about except that it was rated R and was called Demon. While I loved the gory Rabid (and still do), my 14-year old mind was mostly just bewildered by the deranged religious madness and paranormal confusion on display in the less-gruesome Demon. About a dozen years later, I rented the VHS of Larry Cohen’s God Told Me To, and was surprised »

Here's the Story That the Denzel Washington/Antoine Fuqua 'Magnificent Seven' Remake Will Tell

23 February 2015 10:12 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington are teaming up again for MGM's long-in-development remake of "The Magnificent Seven" (the 1960 American western directed by John Sturges, which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai").
