Need More 'Sharknado'? See the Awesome Poster for Roger Corman's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda'

31 July 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you survived last night’s Sharknado sequel, don’t leave your storm room just yet – there are more deadly sea monsters on the horizon. Roger Corman is set to unleash the imaginatively titled Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda: A Love Story onto unsuspecting Syfy audiences this Saturday night – and we’ve got some nifty artwork to share from what promises to be the most romantic movie about genetically modified sea creatures with a taste for human flesh released this year. In the new film, the offspring of Sharktopus goes fin-to-fin with the Pteracuda – which is just what the name describes: a half-barracuda, half-pterodactyl hybrid that’s all business. Robert Carradine and Katie Savoy star in the new film, but both have been upstaged by an...

House of Mouse Horror: A Defense for Disney Channel Original Movies

10 July 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Before The Disney Channel became the network responsible for unleashing Miley Cyrus to the world and driving Shia Labeouf to lose his damn mind, they were the pinnacle of children’s entertainment.  Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon were great, sure, but were they great enough to run a channel that only showed commercials…for its own channel?  The original programming always drew in a huge audience, but Disney Channel Original Movies were in a league above everything else.  Before High School Musical came along and set the standard for Dcoms from there on out, The Disney Channel was consistently cranking out made-for-tv movies that completely shaped the childhoods of generation Y.  Despite the family friendly demeanor, Dcoms provided some surprisingly great kid-friendly horror flicks.  Horror fans are breeding their own little ones and while their four-year-old may not be ready for The Exorcist, there are plenty of kid-horror flicks at their »

The Dusty VHS Corner: Stock Footage Spectaculars

14 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe delves into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of stock footage spectaculars in Strategic Command, Stormcatcher and Steel Sharks

In the mid to late 90’s, there was an almost epidemic boom of straight to video films that featured plot-lines involving submarines or fighter planes. Why? Well given the vast majority of these films were shot for about $3.00 each, the idea was to have plot-lines with these elements in order to use stock shots of F-16 fighter jets, stealth fighters, U-boats and other military based vehicles of air and sea in order to give the illusion that these films were more lavishly budgeted than they actually were, and indeed to further save time in the remainder of the shoot. If you go into a film knowing that you’ve already got 15 minutes of screen-time ready in a stock footage library, then you’ve only got to worry about »

New on Video: ‘The Big Red One’

22 May 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Big Red One

Written and directed by Samuel Fuller

USA, 1980

When a director like Samuel Fuller finally gets the chance to make his passion project, rest assured, there’s going to be more than a little of the man himself in the movie. With Fuller, this would have undoubtedly been the case no matter what type of film it was, but when the film is an autobiographical World War II yarn about the first infantry division — the “fighting first” — the filmmaker’s stamp is evident from start to finish. The Big Red One is an episodic chronicle of this military assembly, here focused on The Sergeant (Lee Marvin, adding classic film respectability), and the “four horsemen,” Pvt. Griff (Mark Hamill, adding contemporary film marketability), Pvt. Zab (Robert Carradine), Pvt. Vinci (Bobby Di Cicco), and Pvt. Johnson (Kelly Ward). The men who make up the four horsemen, a label that »

Blu-ray Review: Three 1980s Comedy Hits Get HD Upgrades

12 May 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Did you think we’d ever live in a time when you could watch a guilty pleasure like “Weekend at Bernie’s” in pristine HD? Every few weeks here at Hc, we bring to light classicc films coming to Blu-ray for the first time like “Sorcerer” or “Breaking the Waves” or “Bachelor Party.” Wait. What? Yes, we’re here to inform you, dear readers, that you can now buy “Bachelor Party,” “Revenge of the Nerds,” and “Weekend at Bernie’s” for low, low prices in HD. Use them to show off your new TV.

To be fair, not all ’80s flicks are created equal. “Nerds” is easily the best of these three films, a movie that has become such a pop culture touchstone that people forget that it’s actually a pretty damn good movie. It’s structured beautifully (and inspired So many films to this day that tried to »

'Revenge of the Nerds': Curtis Armstrong on the cult hit's 30-year anniversary, rediscovering his Booger biography last year

5 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Thirty years have passed since Lewis, Gilbert, Poindexter, Lamar, Wormser, Takashi, and Booger banded together as Lambda Lambda Lambda and emerged victorious over their Panhellenic douche-donis tormentors from Alpha Beta.

Somewhere amid the panty raids, electric-violin pyrotechnics, drunk tricycle riding, and moon-bounce hanky-panky, Revenge of the Nerds became a rallying point for anyone who’d ever felt “laughed at and made to feel inferior,” for anyone who’d ever felt “stepped on, left out, picked on, put down.” It seems fitting that Nerds didn’t sweep any awards shows or top the annual box office (it settled in a respectable 16th place). Nonetheless, »

Orca DVD Review

8 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Anderson

Starring: Richard Harris, Charlotte Rampling, Will Sampson, Bo Derek, Keenan Wynn, Robert Carradine

Running Time: 88 minutes

Certificate: PG

This 1977 cash in on Jaws could have just changed the animal and ran with it. Instead it goes for something a lot deeper and poignant. Philosophical themes are interwoven throughout the film and before you know it you’re gripped. From legendary producer Dino De Laurentiis, the man who produced pretty much everything from Federico Fellini classics to the Hannibal Lecter films, he knew when a specific genre was popular, he knew how to exploit it, but he also knew to make it its own.

We follow Richard Harris as Captain Nolan, a hard drinking Irishman who loves to hunt the beasts of the ocean. Despite this, his character has a dramatic arc and one that is completely believable thanks to Harris’ nuanced performance. He’s disgusted after an »

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2014

1 March 2014 9:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

Sf Sketchfest: Chris Hardwick Giddily Hosts Revenge of the Nerds 30-Year Reunion

11 February 2014 1:10 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Booger’s belch in Revenge of the Nerds is actually the sound of a camel climaxing. There. Now you, too, are cursed — or blessed, if you’re into that sort of thing — with the same knowledge as the audience from Saturday’s Sf Sketchfest Revenge of the Nerds reunion. Curtis Armstrong, who played Booger (and who can currently be seen as Principal Foster on New Girl), revealed that little piece of foley magic at San Francisco’s Castro Theater, and nobody was more thrilled to hear it than the evening’s moderator, Chris Hardwick.The Nerdist and @Midnight host unleashed his inner 12-year-old on the crowd, displaying an unfiltered giddiness onstage as he interacted with seven stars from the film that played a formative role in his youth. In addition to Armstrong, Timothy Busfield (Arnold Poindexter), Robert Carradine (Lewis Skolnick), Andrew Cassese (Harold Wormser), Julia Montgomery (Betty Childs), Larry B. Scott »
