Tonight's lineup features a welcome breach of typecasting. A certain Brat Pack veteran returns to the limelight and plays a role highly unlike the one that brought him most acclaim. No, Judd Nelson is not playing a footloose-and-fancy-free call girl -- though he may strap on his leg-warmers and jitterbug through the library upon seeing what his former co-star has planned for us this evening. »
Chicago – “There’s not a bigger ‘f*ck you!’ from Hollywood than when they say: ‘Eh, we’re not going to release this film.’” But then the fans say: “Oh, you know what? About $100 million says that you are retarded. It says that you made a bad decision,” “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” star Sean Patrick Flanery said in a Chicago interview with HollywoodChicago.com.
Flanery added: “Everybody thinks they know. Executives say: ‘We do this for a living.’ Well, you f*cked up. You f*cked up! You didn’t put this in the theater, and with no advertising, people just picked it up and said: ‘You’re an idiot. This is a good film.’”

Each day we're celebriting the birth of various cinematic persons. Can someone in Hollywood please give their Oscar to Ed Harris today? I mean, my god how long does he have to wait for that damn thing? The rest of today's Sagittarians are less easy to shop for. What could we give Jon Stewart, for example, that he doesn't already have?
Ed, Laura and Jon
1923 Gloria Grahame, Oscar winner (The Bad the Beautiful)
1941 Laura Antonelli, Italian actress, sex symbol
1949 Alexander Godunov, like Baryshnikov, he was a Russian ballet star who defected to America and co-starred in movies. It didn't go quite as well. He never achieved anything close to Misha's level of fame though he made for a memorable screen presence (Witness, »

This isn’t the first time a set titled the “[insert name] collection” has debuted with a less than stellar compilation of films attempting to represent a filmmaker or actor’s career. What Miramax did right here was calling it a “3-Movie Collection” thus letting themselves off the hook for not having some of Kevin Smith’s better films. The set includes Clerks, Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Strike Back which means the collection might not all be the crème de la crème de Smith, but it certainly lets you see a wide range of the man’s talents as a director. However, I think the best way to think of this set is as a sign of his career financially and not necessarily professionally.

Film distributor Apparition will open the movie in more cities including San Francisco, Dallas, San Diego, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Houston on November 13th.
Boondock Saints II nabbed $500,000 last weekend in Los Angeles in New York. Using a tactic most recently used by Paramount’s Paranormal Activity, producers set up a web page asking fans to “demand” that the film be shown in their area.
Directed by Troy Duff , the Boondock sequel stars Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery, Clifton Collins, Julie Benz, Judd Nelson, Robert Cochrane Marley Jr., Brian Mahoney, David Ferry, David Della Rocco, Peter Fonda and Billy Connolly.

Before the tragic sudden death of John Hughes this past summer four filmmakers from Toronto -- Michael Facciolo (producer) , Kari Hollend (producer), Lenny Panzer (co-creator) and Matt Austin Sadowski (director) -- spent four years making a tribute documentary about the reclusive director, nabbing interviews with some of the main actors from his films (Andrew McCarthy, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson to name a few), directors who have been influenced by his iconic work (Kevin Smith and Jason Reitman) and traveling to Illinois last year to find Hughes. After Hughes's death the project suddenly became a hot commodity and got a worldwide deal with Alliance Films which released the film, Don't You Forget About Me, on DVD today. Learn more about the »

I dunno about you, but I could probably come up with a few other films that are more incredible rock ’n’ roll adventures than this one. Holy shit: Orson Welles was in a Transformers movie. That’s beautiful. Oh, man: the rainbow flare on the titles... the power-rock score... the Judd Nelson. The 80s, it burns. The Japanese title is so totally awesome, I can’t even begin to unpack how totally awesome it is: Transformers the Movie: Apocalypse! Matrix Forever. Transformers: The Movie is out of print on DVD, but used copies are available in Region 1 and Region 2. »

Way back in 1999, a film unbeknownst to practically everyone, was released in a miniscule theatrical rollout before it hit the shelves on DVD, then only available at Blockbuster. As the word-of-mouth kept growing and growing, the DVD was finally available for purchase in 2002 and not long after that, Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints became a cult phenomena, the likes of which are rarely seen in the movie biz. Now, a decade later, Troy Duffy is finally able to round up the Saints once more for the highly-anticipated sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, which will be released in theaters on October 30.
Of course, the Saints themselves, Sean Patrick Flanery as Connor, Norman Reedus as Murphy, and Billy Connolly as their father, Il Duce (or Poppa M) have returned for the sequel, but we also get some new faces in the mix as well. Clifton Collins Jr., a »
Director Troy Duffy does it again. Why?
Having been unable to sit through the 1999 "Boondock Saints" in its wretched entirety, I've been surprised to watch it become a massive "cult hit" on DVD. Blockbuster-stoked fan enthusiasm has propelled it into the top 20 of all catalog titles currently on sale, and to number 12 in Blu-ray unit sales. So shut my mouth.
Now comes director Troy Duffy's flatulent sequel, "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day." Ten years in the contemplation! It doesn't feel quite that long to sit through in its wretched entirety (which I did this time), but I still can't imagine any but the most easily entertained being willing to do so.
The new movie opens where the last one left off, more or less. Twin brothers »
It's sort of a miracle we have one Boondock Saints movie, let alone two. The story behind getting writer/director Troy Duffy's ultraviolent cult favorite to the screen was so ripe with drama, it inspired it's own movie, the documentary Overnight, which doesn't portray the auteur in a favorable light. The good news for fans of the cult is that you made it so successful we get another adventure of the Irish vigilante heroes. The good news for haters is that you can watch Overnight and marvel, time and time again.
Boondock Saints II: All Saint's Day picks up 8 years after the blood baths created by the MacManus Brothers, Connor and Murphy (Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus). They would execute criminals, in a bid to clean up the streets of Boston, to the public's support. Sort of like Batman, but with more silenced pistol fire. The first film »

I have to be honest, before I saw the trailer to The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day , I’d never heard of it! I don’t know if this says a lot about me or that the marketing for the first one didn’t do so well! It was made back in 1999 so I was obviously too busy at school or something! For the hundreds of you out there that have heard of it, and love it, this is a special treat for you. IGN have posted the first five minutes of the 2nd installment which we’ve embedded for you below.
