Sunshine review – basketball and racial tensions collide in standout Australian drama

Anthony Lapaglia’s school-of-hard-knocks coach brings star power to this superb new series set in outer-west Melbourne

Remember that movie or TV show with the jaded, world-weary, what-have-i-got-to-live-for coach who reluctantly agrees to mentor a team of ill-disciplined rascals? Remember how sport becomes a metaphor for life, and the determination, hard slog and gradual improvement of the kids inspires in this broken person a new raison d’être?

Of course you do, and of course you don’t. You do because this archetype is almost as familiar as the absentminded professor or the whisky priest. You don’t because you’ve witnessed so many incarnations of this character – from the stubby-clutching Morris Buttermaker (Walter Matthau and later Billy Bob Thornton) in Bad News Bears to the smug Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) in The Mighty Ducks – that they blur together as one big, whistle-blowing splotch in the memory.

The Breakfast Club

“What happens when you put five strangers in Saturday detention? Badass posturing, gleeful misbehavior, and a potent dose of angst. With this exuberant film, writer-director John Hughes established himself as the bard of American youth, vividly and empathetically capturing how teenagers hang out, act up, and goof off. ‘The Breakfast Club’ brings together an assortment of adolescent archetypes — the uptight prom queen (Molly Ringwald), the stoic jock (Emilio Estevez), the foul-mouthed rebel (Judd Nelson), the virginal bookworm (Anthony Michael Hall »

Looking back at St. Elmo's Fire (1985)

27 September 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Eric Blume

Director Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire captures 1985 perfectly:  the word “yuppie” had just come into vogue, and this film follows seven Georgetown students finding themselves lost after graduation.  They’re all white, attractive, fairly affluent, and awfully boring, and nothing much happens in the movie.  So why is it so damn watchable?

St. Elmo’s Fire is a curio from this era, because while it wasn’t a huge box office success, it’s an instantly-recognizable title after 22 years.  This of course is due to the film’s actors: Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Mare Winningham, Judd Nelson, and Andrew McCarthy.  Schumacher did manage lightning-in-a-bottle with that casting, and while very little about the film is objectively good, watching these actors near the start of their careers provides a kicky joy »

The Stars of 'The Mighty Ducks': Where Are They Now?

27 September 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On Oct. 2, 1992, The Mighty Ducks was released in theaters. The Disney film, directed by Stephen Herek from a screenplay by Steven Brill, grossed more than $50 million at the domestic box office on a $10 million budget, spawned two sequels and an animated TV series, and inspired the original name of the Anaheim NHL team.

The Mighty Ducks tells the story of high-strung lawyer Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), who is ordered by a court to coach a pee-wee hockey team as community service after getting arrested for drunk driving. When the lawyer is assigned to coach the worst »

Peter Travers on Harry Dean Stanton: 'The Coolest Dude in the Room'

16 September 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When I die," Harry Dean Stanton told me once, "people are going to say, 'I thought he was dead already.'" Typical Stanton – and atypically wrong. Though reports insist that the man actually has died at 91, avid moviegoers know he's always been around when we needed a Stanton fix at the movies. Hell, he made over 200 of them. His latest, ironically titled Lucky, with Stanton starring as an atheist on a spiritual journey, opens in two weeks.

Stanton was known as the quintessential character actor. He hated the phrase. "When you label something, »

Lionsgate, ‘John Wick’ Producer Team on Female-Driven Action Movie ‘Ballerina’

25 July 2017 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has picked up Shay Hatten’s action script “Ballerina” and set up the project with “John Wick” franchise producer Basil Iwanyk through his Thunder Road company.

Lionsgate won an auction for “Ballerina,” with Warner Bros. and Universal also expressing interest in the script, which centers on a young woman raised as an assassin who must hunt down the assassins who killed her own family. It’s said to be similar to Luc Besson’s 1990 actioner “La Femme Nikita,” which starred Anne Parillaud as a teen junkie who murders a policeman and becomes a skilled assassin.

Luc Besson Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

20 July 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Too Hollywood for art houses and too art house for Hollywood, iconoclastic French filmmaker Luc Besson has always had to blaze his own trail. Unwilling — or unable — to compromise from the very start (his debut feature was a dialogue-free post-apocalyptic drama about a waterless future where it occasionally rains fish), Besson continues to offset his pigheadedness with his passion. He eventually got so sick of looking for support that he launched his own production company, EuropaCorp, which has become one of the most profitable in all of Europe by churning out the kind of carnivalesque shlock that made its founder so famous in the first place. Besson may not have directed the likes of “Taken,” “Lock-Out,” and “Colombiana,” but his fingerprints are all over them.

‘Dark Tower’ Director Nikolaj Arcel Joins Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy Movie

19 July 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy biopic “Rfk” has picked up momentum as “The Dark Tower” director Nikolaj Arcel has signed on to direct Damon in the Warner Bros. project.

Arcel will direct from a script he co-wrote with Rasmus Heisterberg and Felipe Marino. Damon will produce with Jennifer Todd and Drew Vinton. Production is expected to start next year.

Kennedy ran the successful 1960 presidential campaign for his brother, John F. Kennedy, and served as U.S. Attorney General and top adviser to his brother between 1961 and 1963. He remained in the post for President Lyndon B. Johnson for several months after his brother’s assassination, then resigned to run for the U.S. Senate, representing New York.

Kennedy served until his assassination in June, 1968, while seeking the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

The last day of Kennedy’s life was recapped in the 2006 film “Bobby,” directed »

Newswire: The Dark Tower’s Nikolaj Arcel to direct Matt Damon’s Robert Kennedy movie

19 July 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Director Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower is about a legendary hero on a nearly impossible quest to save all of reality from an evil wizard, but it looks like Arcel’s next film will be slightly less fantastical. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll be directing Matt Damon in Rfk, a long-in-the-works biopic about Robert F. Kennedy. Damon is set to play the former presidential candidate, who was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in 1968, with Arcel writing the script.

No other actors are attached to Rfk yet, but hopefully the movie doesn’t spend too much time putting together a big-name cast at the expense of virtually everything else in the production, which is the pit that Emilio Estevez’s Bobby fell into way back in 2006. Or maybe Arcel should just get the same cast (including Martin Sheen, Shia Labeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Anthony Hopkins, and Demi Moore »

Fantasia 2017: ‘Super Dark Times’ Review

13 July 2017 5:03 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Kevin Phillips’ feature directorial debut is a knock-out. There’s no other way to put it, really. Comparison is being made by many to Stand By Me, but I think it’s closer to Jacob Estes’ 2004 thriller Mean Creek. To talk about either film, the same spoiler is unavoidable: a bully dies, accidentally, and the rest of the film is how the characters deal with it. Where the two films depart is that fallout and the tone therein. Mean Creek handles how the guilt can consume you, and while Super Dark Times absolutely deals with that, the manifestation of it is drastically different.  It’s strange, occasionally comedic, and always intriguing.

Teen friends Josh (Charlie Tahan) and Zach (Owen Campbell) are watching scrambled porn on a tube TV and discussing girls at school.  Ahh, the 90’s. As boys do, they ride their bikes to get snacks at a quick stop, »
