New on DVD Blu-ray August 26, 2014: 'Belle,' 'Portlandia,' 'Walking Dead'

25 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Belle"

What's It About? This 18th century English romance is about Dido Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a biracial woman raised by her aristocratic great uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield. She grows up alongside her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as equals and best friends, but as they come of age, their differences become all too apparent -- to each other and to their would-be suitors. Meanwhile, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) is facing a trial as Lord Chief Justice of England that could change the future of slavery. Will Dido find love on her own terms?

Why We're In: It's an elegant period piece perfect for Jane Austen fans, and it's a subtle but effective examination of the intersection of class and race in 18th century England. Mbatha-Raw is fantastic, and director Amma Asante has an excellent eye for detail.

Trailers From Hell and Joe Dante on 'Confessions Of An Opium Eater'

22 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Albert Zugsmith’s shining moment in an amiably disreputable career that nonetheless included producing pix by Sirk, Welles and Jack Arnold. Only Fu Manchu is missing from this hypnotically retrograde yellow peril hallucination starring Vincent Price and half the Asian actors in Hollywood. Amazingly, in 1959 William Castle was originally set to shoot this in color with Miiko Taka, star of "Sayonara"–in Tokyo! Although Joe Dante laments the home video unavailability of this title in his commentary from several years ago, we’re happy to report that Warner Archive has since issued a stellar transfer that captures all the weirdo beauty of this uniquely odd movie. »

Tyburn Films: British Horror’s last line of Defence

4 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

1976 saw the publication of John Brosnan’s excellent book The Horror People. Written during the summer of 1975, it makes interesting reading 40 years down the line. Those who feature prominently in the book – Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, Jack Arnold, Michael Carreras, Sam Arkoff, Roy Ward Baker, Freddie Francis, Robert Bloch, Richard Matheson and Milton Subotsky – were still alive, as were Ralph Bates, Mario Bava, Jimmy Carreras, John Carradine, Dan Curtis, John Gilling, Robert Fuest, Michael Gough, Val Guest, Ray Milland, Robert Quarry and Michael Ripper, all of whom were given a mention. Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Junior, Michael Reeves and James H Nicholson were not long dead. Hammer, Amicus and American International Pictures were still in existence. George A Romero had yet to achieve his prominence and Stephen King wasn’t even heard of!

Brosnan devoted a chapter to a new British company called Tyburn Films. Founded by the charismatic and ambitious Kevin Francis, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: High School Confidential!

26 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 26, 2014

Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Olive Films

Jan Sterling (ctr.), Russ Tamblyn, Mamie Van Doren, and her torpedo bra star in High School Confidential!

High School Confidential! is generally regarded as one of the most memorable and iconic B-movies of the 1950s–a real cult favorite masquerading as a crime boiled crime drama….

The film stars Russ Tamblyn (West Side Story) as Tony Baker, the new kid at Santa Bellow High, whose cocky attitude and ambitious weed-dealing enable him to infiltrate the gang of a local narcotics boss played by Jackie Coogan (TVs The Addams Family).

Directed by Jack Arnold (Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Incredible Shrinking Man) and released in 1958, High School Confidential! deliciously swims in its exploitation of bad girls, fast cars and raunchy rock’n’roll.

Most notably, the movie features the sexy and shapely Mamie Van Doren in her most outrageous role, »

Movie Poster of the Week: Jean Grémillon’s “Daïnah la métisse” and Christie’s Vintage Film Posters auction

21 June 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This week, Christie’s, the world’s largest fine arts auction house, is hosting an inaugural online-only sale of what are billed as Vintage Film Posters, though it is an eclectic collection of old and new. There are plenty of familiar faces, like Reynold Brown’s Attack of the 50Ft. Woman, Saul Bass’s The Man With the Golden Arm, Giorgio Olivetti’s La Dolce Vita, Bob Peak’s My Fair Lady, and Philip Castle’s Clockwork Orange, but what is interesting in terms of the auction market is the inclusion of a number of recent Mondo posters by Tyler Stout, Todd Slater and Laurent Durieux. The auction also includes La Boca’s already-classic, four-year-old set of silkscreen teasers for Black Swan.

The poster that really caught my eye, however, and one I’d never seen before, is this stunning Deco design by one Ram Richman for Jean Grémillon’s »

Trailers from Hell Chases 'The Mouse That Roared,' Starring Peter Sellers Times-Three

9 April 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This week on Trailers from Hell, the articulate Brian Trenchard-Smith revisits Jack Arnold's 1959 comedy "The Mouse That Roared," starring Peter Sellers, in three roles, and Jean Seberg. The nearly bankrupt country of Grand Fenwick declares war on the United States in order to receive the financial aid that would be awarded the tiny country after their inevitable defeat. Unfortunately, they win. Peter Sellers stars (in three different roles) alongside Jean Seberg in this 1959 British cold-war farce written by Roger MacDougall (The Man In The White Suit) and directed by sojourning American Jack Arnold (Arnold went on to shoot an unsold TV pilot based on Mouse with Sid Caesar inheriting the roles played by Sellers). Grand Fenwick and its hapless citizenry returned in 1963's The Mouse On The Moon, directed by Richard Lester. »

Confessions of an Opium Eater

27 February 2014 11:35 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Here’s another gem from the Tfh Vault. From January 24, 2008, it’s Joe Dante on Confessions of an Opium Eater.

 

Albert Zugsmith’s shining moment in an amiably disreputable career that nonetheless included producing pix by Sirk, Welles and Jack Arnold. Only Fu Manchu is missing from this hypnotically retrograde yellow peril hallucination starring Vincent Price and half the Asian actors in Hollywood. Amazingly, in 1959 William Castle was originally set to shoot this in color with Miiko Taka, star of Sayonara–in Tokyo!

I Am Legend: The Greatest Vampire Movie Never Made

5 January 2014 4:25 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The death of Richard Matheson on 22 June 2013 marked the end of an amazing career as a novelist and screenwriter. His most enduring legacy will always be as the author of I Am Legend, arguably one of the finest vampire novels ever written. Considered ‘the very peak of paranoid science fiction,’ Matheson’s groundbreaking debut novel is one of the few contemporary vampire stories that came close to the literary excellence of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

With plans of a sequel to the Will Smith misfire I Am Legend (2007) being seriously considered by filmmakers, there is only one thing that fans of Matheson’s outstanding post apocalyptic work are asking “when is there going to be a Proper film version of the book?”

Published in 1954, I Am Legend tells the terrifying tale of Robert Neville, the sole survivor of a mysterious airborne virus that has turned everyone, including his wife Virginia and best friend Ben Cortman, »

"This Island Earth" & "It Came From Outer Space" Screenings, New Beverly Cinema, L.A., January 12-13

4 January 2014 9:34 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

If you live in the Los Angeles area, the New Beverly Cinema is presenting a sci-fi double feature of This Island Earth (1955) and It Came From Outer Space (1953) on Saturday, January 12, 2014 and Sunday, January 13, 2014. Both films are widely considered to be classic science fiction films of the 1950s and were made during a time in which artists made up beautiful, colorful and spectacular posters first, and then the films were based on the imagery seen in the poster. Sometimes this method worked and sometimes it didn’t.

This Island Earth was directed by Joseph M. Newman, who was fairly prolific during the 1940’s and 1950’s both on the large and small screens, directing episodes of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents for the latter. Jeff Morrow, Faith Domergue, Rex Reason, Lance Fuller and Russell Johnson star.

Jack Arnold made a career of directing some of the best known science »
