Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: Krampus And More!

12 December 2015 3:16 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Despite its rampaging monster approach to the holiday season and the imposing, sort-of terrifying giant horned goat-man who provides its title, Krampus isn’t, at heart, an anti-Christmas picture-- it has at least one bloodshot eye pitched toward seasonal classic status. The movie’s story is centered on a family at war with itself—semi-sophisticated suburbanites Adam Scott and Toni Collette and their kids hosting a clan of boorish, right-wing Walmart-warrior relatives headed up by David Koechner and Alison Tolman— who finds itself besieged by the impish and deadly forces of Krampus, the flip-side of holiday cheer, Darth Vader to Santa’s Obi-wan. When the only child left in the family who still clings to his belief in Santa Claus has the last vestiges of Christmas spirit (here so defined as the will to make sacrifices for the good of others) derided out of him, he tears up his last »

Johnny Depp to Receive Desert Palm Achievement Award at 27th Palm Springs International Film Festival

17 November 2015 3:31 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Whether he likes it or not, Johnny Depp is going to be a part of this year's Awards Season for his mesmerizing portrayal of Whitey Bulger in "Black Mass" (See my review right here).

The actor, previously nominated for "Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl," "Finding Neverland," and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street," infamously told BBC Newsbeat that he "doesn't want to win one of those things ever." Well, guess what? He maybe nominated and perhaps win! Why? Because he's just been baptized by the Palm Springs International Film Festival with its Desert Palm Achievement Award. And that's a good sign as we traverse Awards Season.

This is in my hood and I'll give you reports from the red carpet! Here's the complete press release:

Palm Springs, CA (November 17, 2015) . The 27th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (Psiff) will present Johnny Depp with the Desert Palm Achievement Award, »

The photographer details here how she pulled off multiple shoots for the cover story, how she used a "fine art" approach to capture her subjects, and why she hopes the women

21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

31 March 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »
