1,000 Times Goodnight | DVD Review

23 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Released for a two week autumn window stateside via the Film Movement folks, winner of three awards, including Best Film at the Amanda Awards (Norwegian Oscars), Erik Poppe’s English language directorial debut 1,000 Times Goodnight, was a noticeable item due the internationally renowned cast that’s headlined by a masterful performance from Juliette Binoche.

Basically a family melodrama hedged by topical issues, Poppe’s own experiences as a war photographer serve as the semi-autobiographical impetus for the film, which is perhaps why it’s presented with such nuance. Bolstering the importance of such a hazardous occupation, the film’s tense juxtaposition lies in how one reconciles working in such dangerous conditions while trying to raise a family. Obviously changing his own perspective to that of a mother ups the dramatic potential, and is met with a terrifically inspired performance from Binoche. A photojournalist that specializes in conflict zones, Rebecca (Binoche »

Trailers From Hell on 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'

12 December 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Amy Heckerling’s raucous 1982 high school comedy based on screenwriter Cameron Crowe’s book is a virtual template for the dozens of teen flicks produced in its wake. Co-starring longtime character actor Ray Walston as the strait-laced history teacher engaged in a one-sided war with Spicoli, the modern day Maynard G. Krebs (a reference that may fly over the heads of those under 50), the film served as a launching pad for a slew of young actors who went on to become some of the mainstays of the last few decades including Sean Penn as Spicoli, Nicolas Cage (billed as Nicolas Coppola), Forest Whittaker, Eric Stoltz and Jennifer Jason Leigh. »

Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Begins Production

11 December 2014 11:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday last month, Samuel L. Jackson gave fans the first look at part of Quentin Tarantino's assembled cast of The Hateful Eight during a rehearsal session. Yesterday, the actor gave fans our first look at the set in Colorado as production got under way on this highly-anticipated revenge Western. Hopefully this will be just the first of several photos as production continues, but we'll have to wait and see.

We reported back in September that director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting The Hateful Eight on December 8, somewhere in southwestern Colorado. The Colorado state film commissioner David Zimmerman confirmed that "the whole movie's going to be shot here," with sets to be built on an existing ranch. Colorado awarded the production with a $5 million tax incentive to shoot in the state, which represents 20% of the film's Colorado budget. The project will be the first major motion »

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

9 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

1. Zach Galligan

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

30 Great Sci-Fi Movies on Netflix Streaming Right Now

4 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?

Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr

David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.

2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG

The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

Samuel L. Jackson Tweets Behind-the-Scenes Images from Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

23 November 2014 8:51 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What a difference a year makes.  At the beginning of 2014, Quentin Tarantino shelved The Hateful Eight after a draft of the script was leaked online.  But as the year has progressed, Tarantino has gone from suing over the leak to having a staged reading to casting and is now ready to film entirely in Colorado next month.  Samuel L. Jackson is once again reuniting with Tarantino, and tweeted a couple images from behind the scenes.  Admittedly, there’s nothing major here—no costumes or sets—but it is nice to see the assembled cast and have a reminder we’re getting a new Tarantino movie next year. Hit the jump to check out The Hateful Eight images.  The film also stars Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Channing Tatum, Demian Bichir, and Bruce DernThe Hateful Eight opens late 2015.

Review: Paul Verhoeven's "Flesh+Blood" On Blu-ray From Kino Lorber Video

19 November 2014 7:59 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Rod Barnett

There have been entire books dedicated to the cinema of Dutch director Paul Verhoeven and with good reason. Known for pushing the envelope of what is acceptable onscreen in both sexuality and violence, his movies have been celebrated and condemned - often by the same critic at different times! To one degree or another I have enjoyed every Verhoeven film I've seen all the way back to the brilliant Soldier of Orange (1977) but it was RoboCop (1987) that stomped across the world and made it possible for the madman to make nearly anything he wanted. I wonder what would have happened if this film - his first English language effort- had not been a huge financial success. Would we have had a series of progressively worse sequels with Rutger Hauer ravishing maidens and slaying nobles for gold? Maybe in a better world.....

Flesh + Blood (1985) takes place in Western »

Quentin Tarantino planning retirement after two more movies

11 November 2014 10:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino suggests it's two more films, and then he'll move onto something else...

As he embarks on his eighth film as writer/director (nine, if you count Kill Bill as two separate movies), Quentin Tarantino has been chatting about his plans for retiring from films. Tarantino is set to start shooting his new western, The Hateful Eight, in the next month or two. The cast for the movie was locked down last week, with Channing Tatum and Jennifer Jason Leigh joining Tarantino returnees Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim, Roth, Michael Madsen and more.

In a talk at the American Film Market, however, Tarantino said that "I've got two more to go after this. I like that I will leave a ten film filmography", he said, adding that "it's not etched in stone, but that is the plan".

Tarantino, currently 51, called directing movies "a young »

Quentin Tarantino Says He Will Retire After Ten Films

11 November 2014 3:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I guess it is true. All good things must come to an end some day and it seems like that day is coming soon for Quentin Tarantino and the fans of his movies.

According to Deadline, the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained director is planning on retiring after he makes his tenth film (which means one more after his next one, The Hateful Eight).

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off…I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more,” the director said during an American Film Market panel. “I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard.”

More retirement talk from Quentin Tarantino, discusses his inspiration for The Hateful Eight

11 November 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of years ago, Quentin Tarantino suggested that he’d hang up his directing gloves after reaching ten films, stating that he didn’t want his filmography to suffer as he became an “old-man filmmaker”. Well, he’s now reiterated those thoughts during a Q&A at the American Film Market, where he was promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight.

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” said Tarantino (via Deadline). “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, »

Quentin Tarantino says he'll be retiring after his tenth film, which means one more film after "The Hateful Eight," his Western now officially starring Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins. Here's what the director had to say at a recent American Film Market panel, where Harvey Weinstein presented "Eight" to international buyers, who're clamoring for a piece of the pie: "I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off...I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more.
