Drive-In Dust Offs: Death Race 2000

13 June 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you are of a certain vintage like me, Saturday morning cartoons in the 70’s were something special. I would make myself a bowl of cereal and stare transfixed as cartoon apes, dogs, and rabbits would drive across my screen in ridiculously shaped hot rods and blue and green Mystery Machines. Roger Corman, always on the lookout for the next profitable venture, transposed Saturday mornings to theatres and drive-ins alike with his dystopic demolition extravaganza, Death Race 2000 (1975) . He just never told anyone it wasn’t meant for kids.

Released in April by New World Pictures, made for $300,000 and bringing home $5,000,000, Death Race 2000 was another success for Corman and company. The mid-70’s was a time of vehicular fantasy on the big screen, especially on the B movie circuit. Everything from Race with the Devil (1975) to Smokey and the Bandit (1977) and beyond emphasized fast cars and explosive chases, with »

The Callow Way – On Tax and Fraud in Film

31 May 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at cases of the misuse of tax incentives in film…

The tax incentives offered by various countries, and some Us states, to film and TV production companies have been a good thing. Maybe not in if you live in Los Angeles, which has seen a decline in projects being shot there in the past few years, but it means films are as likely to be shot in London or Hungary as Hollywood and your favourite TV show is probably now shot in Baltimore or Louisiana rather than a sound stage in California.

However, these tax incentives have not always been used to invest in films for the right reasons. Last week, members of one British film investment scheme were reported to be ready to settle a legal battle, paying the UK tax man a massive £1.5 billion, enough to pay for the next few instalments Star Wars or Marvel movies, »

20 Things We Learned from Larry Cohen’s Commentary for Q the Winged Serpent

30 March 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Larry Cohen hasn’t directed a film since 1996 (Original Gangstas), but he’s stayed busy as a writer with thrillers like Phone Booth, Best Seller and Cellular. It’s a bit of a shame as the man’s directorial touch is usually a guarantee that a movie is going to be a fun ride — think It’s Alive, The Stuff, The Ambulance — and one of his best is 1982’s flying monster movie, Q the Winged Serpent. Scream Factory released the film to Blu-ray in 2013 complete with a new commentary track from Cohen, and we decided it was time to give it a spin. It was a smart decision as the track is a fun, informative and occasionally surprising listen. Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for Q the Winged Serpent. Q the Winged Serpent (1982) Commentator: Larry Cohen (writer/director) 1. They had an early preview of the film prior to distribution, and »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

"If It's Not Right, Don't Do It": A Tribute To Western Icon Clint Walker

17 January 2015 8:56 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Joe Elliott

Long-time Grass Valley, California resident (Norman Eugene) Clint Walker starred in the iconic television western Cheyenne from 1955-1963. This was the golden era of TV westerns, with dozens of similar shows airing around the same time.

Like their big screen counterparts, TV cowboys were usually handsome, brave, resourceful and of course good with a gun. However, there was something a bit different about the Cheyenne Bodie character as Walker portrayed him. He fit the genre all right. A big, handsome man built like an oak tree (6’6”, 48-inch chest, 32-inch waist), he rode easy in the saddle and looked better than almost anybody in a Stetson and boots. Men who doubted his resolve always ended up regretting it. Ladies looked his way. Still, despite never violating the conventions of the formula, Walker somehow managed to make the sum of his character add up to more than its parts. »
