Film Review: ‘Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s something incontestably impressive about the no-frills efficiency of “Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison,” a sturdily constructed and scrupulously well-cast slice of meat-and-potatoes filmmaking that calls to mind above-average made-for-cable movies of the 1990s. Based on the 1988 book of the same name by James W. Clarke, this engrossing true-crime drama is potently propelled by Robert Patrick’s full-tilt performance as Gary Tison, a purposefully ingratiating sociopath who reveals his true monstrousness to his naïve sons only after they help him escape from Arizona State Prison, and enhanced by solid contributions from supporting players Bruce Davison, Heather Graham and, briefly, the late John Heard. Director Dwight Little (“Free Willy,” “Rapid Fire”), another seasoned pro, seals the deal by keeping the narrative brisk and suspenseful, even while he covers familiar territory.

After starting out with a miscalculated flashforward that gives the game away a tad too early, Little smoothly doubles back to July 30, 1978, to show »

"Deadpool" Director Takes On "Terminator 6"

18 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Producer James Cameron, creator of the "Terminator" franchise has confirmed he has taken control of the brand and will produce a new trilogy of films, with "Deadpool" director Tim Miller at the helm, reinvigorating characters with the origin of the killer robots and how they came to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, plus the heralded return of the original 'Sarah Connor', played by Linda Hamilton:

"...rather than playing the indestructible killing machine of the title, Arnold will play the human character...

"...the 'Terminators' are modeled after..."

Cameron recently released his classic 1991 feature "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", August 25, 2017 in a fresh, re-mastered 3D conversion, incorporating 'StereoD', a visual technology used in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens":

"...young 'John Connor' (Edward Furlong), the key to civilization's victory over a future robot uprising, is the target of the shape-shifting 'T-1000' (Robert Patrick), a 'Terminator' sent from the future to kill him. »

Terminator 6 Gets Linda Hamilton Back as Sarah Connor

19 September 2017 10:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The old gang is getting back together for Terminator 6. Much more a sequel than a true reboot, original creator and director James Cameron is producing, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the man who inspired the T-800 cyborg. And now it has been confirmed that original Terminator star Linda Hamilton is returning to play Sarah Connor yet again. It's a reunion that has been 25 years in the making.

Linda Hamilton starred in the original James Cameron directed Terminator that debuted way back in 1984. And she reprised the role of Sarah Connor in the sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which arrived in 1991 and was just re-released in theaters after a 3D conversion. Skydance and Paramount are releasing Terminator 6 in theaters.

James Cameron announced Linda Hamilton's return at a private event celebrating the franchise, which was attended by The Hollywood Reporter. He had this to say.

New Terminator Movie Trilogy in the Works, Linda Hamilton Set to Reprise Her Role as Sarah Connor

19 September 2017 10:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As tough as any T-800 to cross her path, the unstoppable Sarah Connor is synonymous with The Terminator franchise. Linda Hamilton's last appearance as the iconic character was in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but now it looks like she'll be back in a new Terminator film that is the first entry in a planned trilogy from James Cameron, Tim Miller, and a writers' room filled with some familiar names.

According to THR, Cameron revealed at a private Terminator celebration that Hamilton is set to return alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger (who played the beloved T-800 in three Terminator films and a T-850 in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) in the new Terminator movie, which is set to be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) from a story idea by Cameron, who directed 1984's The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

‘Lore’ Trailer: Amazon’s Horror Anthology Looks as Bone-Chilling as the Podcast That Inspired It

13 September 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Aaron Mahnke’s “Lore” is one of the podcast world’s most popular series, blending terrifying true stories and deep dives into the eerie myths that have brought about real-world consequences.

Amazon has now given audiences their first glimpse of their upcoming TV adaptation, and it looks as unsettling as some of the best “Lore” episodes can get. (We put one about a possible demonic possession at a French abbey on our Best Podcast Episodes of 2017 So Far list.) This trailer for the six-episode anthology, premiering next month, looks like a greatest hits of creepy stories. There’s a very unpleasant looking operating room procedure, a family torn apart by candlelight, and the shrieks of someone being buried alive. Of course, by the laws of all that is horror, there’s even a dead-eyed doll.

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D’ Review

1 September 2017 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Joe Morton, Earl Boen, Jenette Goldstein, Xander Berkeley | Written by James Cameron, William Wisher Jr. | Directed by James Cameron

Twenty-six years after it blasted onto screens in the summer of 1991, James Cameron’s smash-hit Terminator sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been given an immaculate clean-up and 3D conversion treatment for this missed-it-by-a-year anniversary release. Supervised by Cameron himself, the newly tweaked 3D effects are reason enough to see the film on the big screen again, but does it still hold up after all this time? The short answer is yes. Yes, it does.

The plot, in case you somehow needed reminding, picks up ten years after the events of 1984′s The Terminator, with Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) locked up in an asylum, muttering about an imminent apocalypse, and future resistance leader John Connor (Edward Furlong) still »

In today’s roundup, “Me, Myself & I” adds recurring cast members, and Amazon announced the premiere date of “Lore.”

Casting

Ed Begley, Jr., and Tia Mowry are joining the cast of “Me, Myself & I” on a recurring basis in Season 1. Begley Jr. will play Governor Justin, the future version of Alex Riley’s stepbrother.

Lore: trailer for Amazon's creepy new anthology series

29 August 2017 11:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Sep 14, 2017

Here's the first proper trailer for Amazon's new series Lore, which is set to give real-life scary stories the true crime treatment.

Amazon’s television adaptation of Aaron Mahnke’s popular podcast Lore is creeping up on audiences with horror-inducing intrigue in time for Halloween. The series, manifesting as a 6-episode horror anthology, will showcase the podcast’s accounts of real-life scary stories, urban legends and other assorted folklore, using a mix of animation, live-action and archival footage.

Here's the first full trailer for the series...

Podcast creator Aaron Mahnke narrates the clip and, like in his podcast, the evidence he presents in the show will no doubt serve as the chilling context.

Expect to hear and see tales about vampires, werewolves, spirits, changelings and, as notably featured in the promotional material, a creepy doll given to a young boy that purportedly came alive with evil purposes »

Last Rampage Exclusive Clip: When Robert Patrick Says "Get Back in the Truck," You Best Do It

29 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

As he's proven time and time again, Robert Patrick is a fearsome beast when riled. So when he says "Get back in the truck" in a quiet voice, filled with authority and the threat that he will make you get back in the truck -- or something far worse -- my instinct would be to turn tail and return to my vehicle. But that's not what happens in our exclusive clip from Last Rampage, which makes me even more intrigued by the film, especially since it's based on a true story. Synopsis: "In the summer of 1978 convicted murderer Gary Tison (Robert Patrick) and his cellmate Randy Greenawalt (Chris Browning) staged a daring escape from an Arizona State Prison, with the help of Tison's three...

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D movie review: he said he’d be back…

29 August 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… An action masterpiece newly remastered in gorgeous 4K (and rejiggered for superfluous 3D) reveals how fresh it remains not only technically but thematically. I’m “biast” (pro): love this movie, have seen it a dozen times at least

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

August 29th? It’s Judgment Day! Or at least it would have been, 20 years ago in 1997, if not for the brave actions of mental patient Sarah Connor, her juvenile delinquent son John, and a reprogrammed T-800 killing machine sent back from the future, who didn’t even have a name, poor thing. To commemorate their selfless work, Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been newly remastered in gorgeous 4K, and also rejiggered for 3D, which is entirely superfluous: it adds nothing to the film, but at least it doesn’t detract from it »

A newbie’s guide to Terminator 2: Judgment Day

28 August 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the James Cameron classic returns in 3D this week, Freda Cooper has a guide for the uninitiated…..

Every film fan has a gap in their knowledge: it’s nigh-on impossible to see everything, no matter how hard you try.  So, ladies and gentlemen, I present a recently filled chasm in my film-going history.  Terminator 2: Judgment Day.  One with a huge following, one that’s regarded with not just affection but also a great deal of respect, and one of the first sequels to be as good, if  not better, than its predecessor.  And, no, I haven’t forgotten The Godfather Part II.

It gets the 3D treatment, as supervised by director James Cameron himself, for one night only in cinemas around the UK this Tuesday, 29th.  Fans will no doubt have booked their seats already, but what about the newbies coming to it fresh?

Some background first.  The »

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ Returns To Theaters With 3D Release

24 August 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

In the summer of 1991, Terminator 2: Judgment Day ruled the box office. The long awaited sequel brought back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800 Terminator, and James Cameron, the series' creator, and featured a new song by the biggest rock band in the world at the time, Guns 'n Roses. The film utilized cutting edge technology in essentially creating a villain made of liquid metal (Robert Patrick), and went on to win four Academy Awards for it. Everything was bigger and badder in T2, and audiences ate it up to the tune of over $500 million in world wide box office numbers -- in 1991!

Now, the seminal classic sequel is coming back to theaters exclusively to AMC, with a brand new 3D cut, and some tweaks overseen by James Cameron himself. Cameron, who revolutionized the 3D technology with Avatar, still the biggest box office success ever, is »
