Blu-ray News: Repo Man (Masters of Cinema)

28 December 2011 10:54 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Arguably the defining cult film of the Reagan era, Repo Man, the feature debut of Alex Cox (Sid & Nancy, WalkerStraight to Hell) is a genre-busting mash-up of atomic-age science fiction, post-punk anarchism, and conspiracy paranoia, all shot through with heavy doses of deadpan humour and offbeat philosophy.

After quitting his dead-end supermarket job, young punk Otto (Emilio Estevez) is initiated as a “repo man” after a chance encounter with automobile repossessor Bud (Harry Dean Stanton). An illicit, high-voltage life follows, including an adrenalised search for a mysterious ’64 Chevy Malibu loaded with radioactive – and extragalactic – cargo…

With an iconic soundtrack (Iggy Pop, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies), stunning Robby Müller cinematography, and iconoclastic direction, Repo Man remains one of the great debuts of the 1980s.

Special Director-approved Blu-ray Features:

New high-definition master in the original aspect ratio – 1.85:1 Original mono soundtrack and 5.1 remix, both in DTS-hd Master Audio English Sdh subtitles »

'Expendables 2' Trailer Light On Schwarzenegger, Heavy On Willis

15 December 2011 6:16 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Continuing the trend of this week being the most amazing week in the history of weeks for trailers (an exaggeration, sure, but let's go with it), the very first "Expendables 2" teaser trailer hit last night, and it's bound to make action junkies weak at the knees.

Yes, the "Ex2" trailer is light on Schwarzenegger. But whoa, when Arnie makes his appearance firing a machine gun off at who-knows-what, it's enough to guarantee that the Trench we're meeting here is much happier to flex his badass muscles than the guy we saw in the first "Expendables." Plus, what the trailer lacks in Schwarz it more than makes up for in Bruce Willis. The erstwhile John McClane is increasingly looking like the villain of the piece against a Sly and Arnie team-up, and that's just too fantastic for a die-hard action fan (see what I did there?) to ignore.

In addition to the "Expendables 2" trailer, »

The outstanding independent films of 2011

13 December 2011 1:29 PM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

It is impossible to argue against the fact that 2011, though not terribly good for Hollywood, was a particularly smashing year for smaller, specialty films. "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Midnight in Paris" - Woody's biggest hit to date -- "Tree of Life," "Shame," "Melancholia," "The Artist" and "We Need to Talk About Kevin" are just some of the standout films that were released this year.

"This is going to be one of those movie years like 1939 and 1968. It'll take about 20 years, and people will look back and realize all of the little quiet revolutions that changed everything," Patton Oswalt, a cineaste and the star of Young Adult, told the Village Voice. "If you look at movies like 'Bellflower,' 'Septien,' and 'Martha Marcy May Marlene,' this was the first year that people really started going: 'Fuck it, I'm going to shoot a film. I don't know what I'm »

Martin Sheen feared disappointing son Emilio Estevez with 'The Way' [Video]

10 December 2011 9:17 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Way” finds Martin Sheen walking back into a leading film role, which is one of the most personal performances of his career.  It was written and directed by his son, Emilio Estevez, and is set on the Spanish pilgrimage trail ‘Camino de Santiago,’ near where Martin’s father was born and raised. Sheen says that his son was insistent, “the film would never get done without me, it was his gift for me." However, as a father, he couldn't help but worry about disappointing his son. "The only anxiety I had was that I would not come up to his expectations.” He thinks their joint effort was, “a deeply personal relationship being explored on film ... it was a reflection of our relationship and basically a gift we gave to each other.” Early in his film career, Sheen gave iconic leading performances in Terrence Malick’s “Badlands” and Francis Ford Coppola’s &ldqu. »

Lindsay Lohan Nude Playboy Pics Leaked Online

9 December 2011 6:31 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lindsay Lohan has been enmeshed in controversy for as long as I can remember. Her Playboy spread is no different: the photos showing a naked Lindsay Lohan, 25, posing à la Marilyn Monroe have been leaked online, much to the official consternation of the Playboy top brass. "Because of the interest & the Internet leak," Hugh Hefner tweeted, "we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early." Hefner then added, "Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot." (Hefner surely didn't sound too consternated in his tweets.) Lohan's nude photos, in fact, are quite good-looking. Those writing nasty comments about them are doing so because they're envious: either they wanted Lohan's face and body or the almost $1 million she earned for the shoot. Else, they're just envious of Lohan's fame/notoriety. Or all of the above. By the way, Lohan »

Hey, Toronto! Twitch Presents St. Elmo's Fire At The Tiff Bell Lightbox Tonight!

9 December 2011 7:16 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The Twitch-presented Back To The 80's series wraps up at the Tiff Bell Lightbox tonight with a screening of Joel Schumacher's Brat Pack classic St Elmo's Fire.The film that inspired the term "Brat Pack" in reference to its cast of rising young stars--Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Mare Winningham and Ally Sheedy--St. Elmo's Fire is essentially a spin on The Big Chill for the college crowd, focusing on a group of friends facing the difficult transition to adult life (with plenty of smooth eighties music in the background). Though this likely marked the moment when the genre transitioned from an organic movement into a more packaged and manipulated product, this is still one of the key films of the »

Legends of the Fall: How "The Way" and "Margin Call" Bucked the Indie Box Office Blues

7 December 2011 8:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As was the case for its Hollywood counterpart, it was not a great fall at the indie box office. Some of the most anticipated and acclaimed Sundance titles - "Like Crazy," "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Take Shelter" - all failed to break out beyond specialty niches, with the former two heading for grosses just over the $3 million mark and the latter hovering just under $2 million. By no means horrible numbers, but certainly not what Paramount Vantage ("Crazy"), Fox Searchlight ("Martha"), and Sony Pictures Classics ("Shelter") must have had in mind when they bought the films. But there were two notable bright spots amidst the duldroms that not too many people saw coming: Emilio Estevez's "The Way" and Jc Chandor's "Margin Call." Grassroots Distribution Paves "The Way" "The Way" - which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010 - made »

The Outsiders (1983) – Bluray Review

25 November 2011 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In 1960′s Oklahoma the leather and denim-clad Greasers and the richer, preppy Soc’s (pronounced “So-shers”) are constantly and at times literally at each others throats. As their confrontations escalate, a tragic turn of events forces Greasers Johnny (Ralph Macchio) and Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) to flee the town and hide out, until further tragedy brings them back to town for a bitter-sweet reunion with family and friends.


Like a proto-Brat Pack movie (Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Macchio, Howell, Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon and Patrick Swayze all appear), The Outsiders comes loaded with expectation and baggage and it is a load it struggles to bear up under. Director Francis Ford Coppola was white hot off the back of an unprecedentedly successful decade that had given the world two Godfathers, one Conversation and an Apocalypse, working from a book that was apparently widely read and much beloved by those at Junior »

Natalie Portman And Steve Carell Join Jason Reitman’s (Staged Reading Of) ‘The Apartment’

17 November 2011 2:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Natalie Portman won an Oscar for Black Swan and then disappeared, primarily because she was pregnant and had her first child. Mama is making her first major public appearance since then tonight at the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art, for Jason Reitman's staged reading of Billy Wilder's 1960 masterpiece, The Apartment. Portman will read the role of Fran, made famous by Shirley McClane. She'll star alongside Jk Simmons as Jeff, the role Fred MacMurray originated, as well as Collette Wolfe, Ken Jeong, Nick Kroll, Jake Johnson in the other roles. Oh, and the lead role of Cc Baxter, originally played by Jack Lemmon, will be played by a little up and coming actor named Steve Carell. Read more after the jump. Reitman himself has been tweeting [1] the casting of these readings, which was then picked up by Vulture [2]. This reading of The Apartment is an incredibly impressive follow »

Box office report: 'Immortals' shields off 'Jack and Jill' and 'Puss in Boots' with $32 million debut

13 November 2011 11:37 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

After two weekends atop the box office, Puss in Boots was thwarted by a pair of newcomers, Immortals and Jack and Jill, both of which opened to solid numbers. J. Edgar wasn’t quite as fortunate, but overall, the box office exhibited life like it hasn’t for the past few months, and the top ten ticked up 18 percent over the same weekend last year — a good sign headed into Thanksgiving.

Three Colours trilogy: Decoding the blue, white and red

10 November 2011 5:23 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1990s trilogy had a touch of dinner party trendiness on release, but the colours stay fast today

For some cinephiles, reconsidering Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colours trilogy is like finding an old photo of yourself in 90s clothes and a 90s haircut. This series of three conceptually interlocking movies – his last work, in fact, before he died of cancer in 1995 – was by far Kieslowski's biggest international hit, helped in this country by poster campaigns featuring the luminous stars of each: Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy and Irène Jacob, a gorgeous young aristocracy of French cinema. The films were co-written by Krzysztof Piesiewicz, a lawyer by training; now a parliamentarian and somewhat conservative figure in Poland.

And, yes, there is a definite touch of dinner-party trendiness that clings to the memory of these movies now, together with a touch of critical doubt, a suspicion that the Three Colours were contrived, »

Junkfood Cinema: Never Too Young to Die

Welcome back to Junkfood Cinema; now get off our lawn. This is the weekly internet bad movie column that gets winded as you scroll up and down the page. Every Friday I assault your senses with whatever terrible movie I happen to being using a coaster that week. I will pummel and pistol whip the movie with its own flaws–and a pistol apparently–until it can barely stand, but then I will congratulate the movie on its acceptance into the gang and lavish it with praise. I will then buy a beer and a disgustingly awesome snack food for the film as we stand as friends at the bar singing our gang’s…theme song (?). This week’s punk: Never Too Young to Die What Makes It Bad? Never Too Young to Die existed in this very brief span of time in which Hollywood, well not Hollywood but someone with a movie studio and few hundred »

Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez: 'The Way' Is Not a Gimmick

4 November 2011 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Celebrity Interviews, Moviefone Canada

The father-son relationship has been done to death in movies, but it's never been depicted quite like this. 'The Way,' written and directed by Emilio Estevez, stars the iconic Martin Sheen, who also just so happens to be Estevez's father. The movie follows the journey of Tom (Sheen), a curmudgeonly man who ventures to Europe to recover the body of his son (Estevez), who died while traveling on the "El Camino de Santiago," a popular hike that stretches from France to Spain.

"American Horror Story" Recap 1.05: The Dead "Breakfast Club"

3 November 2011 4:08 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This week American Horror Story ran the second half of its Halloween-themed two-parter, and I think I speak for all of us when I say thank God everything makes sense now, right?

Wrong. This show's still nutty as a fruitcake and twice as nauseating ... in the best possible way, of course.

While it did close the book on the Harmons' first Halloween in Murder House, this really could have been its own episode - the biggest takeaway from the two-parter is exactly how busy a night in that damned Victorian really is. It's like Grand Central up that piece - or the Brady Bunch bathroom, even.

Anyway, let's get to it - these bodies aren't going to unearth themselves! Except that they are.

We do a tiny rewind from last week's cliffhanger and learn that - as I suggested in my recap last week - Tate (Evan Peters) did indeed »

DVD Review - The Outsiders (1983)

31 October 2011 7:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Outsiders, 1983.

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Starring C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise and Diane Lane.

Synopsis: Two rival teen gangs, the working class Greasers and the well-off Socs get caught up in frequent confrontation in 1960s Oklahoma. But when one of the Socs is accidentally killed, the youngest Greasers, Ponyboy and Johnny, flee town.

The 1980s weren't as kind to Francis Ford Coppola as the 70s. After making a handful of films that are considered some of the best of all time - The Godfather parts I & II, Apocalypse Now and The Conversation - the following decade was much more low key.

In 1983, Coppola adapted S.E. Hinton's novel about 1960s teen gangs in small town America, The Outsiders. Edited down to approximately 90 minutes for theatrical release, the film wasn't very well received on it's initial run. Here, on a new DVD and Blu-ray, »

Blu-ray Review: The Outsiders – The Birth Of The Brat Pack

31 October 2011 1:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Hughes, writer and director of the seminal ‘80s film The Breakfast Club is often credited with the creation of the “Brat Pack”, a group of young, up and coming actors who ruled Hollywood in the mid-Eighties influencing the styles and ideology of a generation of teenagers in the process. However, it was in fact a very different and unlikely auteur that made the first true “Brat Pack” movie in 1983.

Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, had suffered a major blow when his 1982 film One From The Heart had failed miserably at the box office forcing him to declare bankruptcy. In the months that followed while looking for a project to restore his reputation he received a letter from a California high school teacher with a petition signed by the whole class requesting that the director turn their favourite novel into a movie.

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

29 October 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Princess of Montpensier; The Tree of Life; The Way; X-Men: First Class; Everything Must Go

It would be easy to dismiss The Princess of Montpensier (2010, Studiocanal, 15) as little more than a handsomely appointed costume drama, with its period setting, romping horses, masked balls, dashing duels and lush scenic detours through leafy woods and remote castles. Yet 70-year-old director Bertrand Tavernier's vibrant adaptation of Madame de La Fayette's 1662 romance is a deceptively seductive affair which discreetly addresses issues of class, gender, religion and honour with wit, verve and ease.

Mélanie Thierry is Marie de Mézières, the eponymous heroine with an undying passion for the earthy Duc de Guise (Gaspard Ulliel), who finds herself bartered into a marriage of convenience with the woefully reliable Prince de Montpensier (Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet). While her unloved husband is away fighting the Huguenots for Charles IX, it falls to Lambert Wilson's tortured Comte »

The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival

28 October 2011 6:30 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Back when I fled Colorado for NYC it was the rebellious thing for an artist to do. Now two decades later it’s the opposite as young bohemians across the nation are radically giving the finger to both coasts, forcing the arts culture to come to them. Case in point, the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, which was originally launched just three years ago as a Slamdance-style antidote to the more established Santa Fe Film Festival, and is made up of folks who want to play in their own backyard – and spruce it up locally. This year the two festivals’ dates unfortunately overlapped – with The (smaller) Man opening with Michel Hazanavicius’s Cannes buzz-generating The Artist and bringing in Emilio Estevez and his dad for a screening of Estvez’s The Way, while the sprawling Sfiff chose to present Billy Wilder’s Albuquerque-set classic Ace in the Hole at the New Mexico History Museum, »

Garner And Van Der Beek Join The Breakfast Club

24 October 2011 9:16 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Garner and James Van Der Beek were among the actors who stepped onstage for an unrehearsed theatre performance of John Hughes' movie The Breakfast Club in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Pregnant actress Garner took on Molly Ringwald's role of pampered and popular Claire, while the Dawson's Creek star portrayed jock Andy, made famous by Emilio Estevez in the 1985 film.

The reading at the Bing Theater at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma) was overseen by Juno director Jason Reitman as part of his innovative series of movie readings to raise money for the Film Independent organisation.

The other parts in the unrehearsed production, which follows a group of school kids misbehaving in detention, were played by Mindy Kaling, Patton Oswalt and Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.

Reitman tells Entertainment Weekly, "The Breakfast Club was just a perfect fit. I needed a film that was in a contained location with not too many characters, that was funny, that was populous, that had a great script that the audience would have a relationship with. It just hit the nail."

He also praised the cast for bravely diving into the production with minimum rehearsal time, adding, "They just showed up 30 minutes before and started reading. Aaron Paul in particular really took the lead and decided he was going to full-on act it out, and everyone went with it."

Reitman is also planning to do more movie readings in the future: "I'd like to do films from different eras. I'd like to also play with the idea of casting, where men can play women, old people can play young people. We can do cross-race on certain ideas. I'd like to use this as an opportunity to really examine a screenplay and re-interpret it." »
