Exclusive Q&A with Night People Writer/Director Gerard Lough

15 April 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Two thieves tell each other eerie stories to pass the time in Gerard Lough’s Night People, a new anthology film hitting VOD on May 9th. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Lough to discuss the making of his directorial feature film debut.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Gerard. When and how did you first come up with the idea for your new film, Night People?

Gerard Lough: Anthology films were very much a fixture of my childhood at Halloween, as they always seemed to be shown on TV at the time and I always liked the idea of getting three stories for the price of one, each of them with the fat trimmed off, that would hit the ground running. Anthology shows were also very much on the go at that time but seemed to die out, so »

Family of Walter Scott, Fatally Shot One Year Ago by a Police Officer, Eagerly Awaits October 31 Trial

7 April 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Walter Scott's family and friends gathered at Live Oak Cemetery in North Charleston, South Carolina, on Monday, April 4, 2016, to pray, lay flowers on his grave and release balloons in blue and white, the colors of the Dallas Cowboys, which was Walter's favorite football team. Exactly a year ago, Scott, a 50-year-old unarmed black man, was fatally shot by police officer Michael Slager, 34, in North Charleston. While his family's grief has lessened since the father of four died, their pain remains, lurking just below the surface. "It's painful, we miss him every day," older brother, Anthony Scott, tells People. His mother, »

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »

The Holidays are Hell in this First Trailer

14 March 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Holidays is a horror anthology from ten directors. The film takes a bloody swipe at those special days, that come by once a year, including: Valentine's Day, Labour Day and Mother's Day. Some of the standout directors from the series are Kevin Smith of Clerks (1994) and Tusk (2014) fame, Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) and Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate). The film's first trailer offers a brief glimpse at each of the stories. The film bills itself as somewhat counter-culture in nature. Each story will challenge the viewer's perspective on folklore, culture, traditions and their perspectives on these special, or stressful, times of the year. The film is set to have its World Premiere in Tribeca. After April 14th, the film will be available through video-on-demand platforms, on the following day. Fans of Southbound, Tales of Halloween or other horror anthologies are encouraged to take a look below. Release Date: April 15th, »

Movie Review – Triple 9 (2016)

17 February 2016 2:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Triple 9, 2016.

Directed by John Hillcoat.

Starring Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus and Gal Gadot.

Synopsis:

A group of police-officers use their expert knowledge to rob banks, but a new cop joins the force and becomes the unwitting target of their next job – using the ‘triple 9′ code to draw all the police to the death of another officer…

Remember when John Hillcoat’s The Road was snubbed at the Academy Awards? It’s only a short time since Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kate Winslet were grabbing Oscar and BAFTA statuettes while Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus were picking up, and nominated, for Emmys and Saturns. Then Hillcoat’s Triple 9 arrives. Packaged as a taught thriller, with dirty cops and sincere thieves, Triple 9 mixes a pot of terrific talent and seems to overcook the brew. Something is missing and the fast-action »

Great Romantic Movies (Without the Stuff That Make You Hate Romantic Movies)

13 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This Valentine's Day, you could stick with something traditional. You could check out that rom-com you and your partner have been meaning to check out. You could watch The Notebook and try very hard not to cry. You have your fair share of standard, go-to romantic options and there's nothing wrong with that. Or you could try something a little different. How about a romantic movie that finds time for gunfights? Or films that find intimacy and tenderness through perverse comedy? Or even something that will let you and your partner live vicariously through another couple as they solve mysteries as a duo? Yeah, you have additional options for sure. True Romance The title of Tony Scott's True Romance initially reads like it's going to be ironic. However, the...

Why Is British Acting Dominated By The Privately Educated?

7 February 2016 4:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at a recurring issue in British film and television…

While the debate about the lack of nominations for black actors at the Oscars rumbles on in the Us, a similar debate is happening in Britain. However, in the UK the debate is not about race; it’s about class. The argument goes that the top-tier of acting talent is dominated by a privately educated elite.

Last year Labour MP Chris Bryant bemoaned the lack of diversity in the arts world, complaining that it was dominated by those who were educated privately. More recently Damian Lewis was involved in a minor controversy about him being invited to his local comprehensive school for an event as he had been educated at Eton. This week acting icon Diana Rigg hit out at those complaining about upper class actors dominating our screens by pointing out that the opposite was »

Listen: 54-Minute Talk With Joel And Ethan Coen & Noah Baumbach About Filmmaking, Opening Shots, And More

5 February 2016 12:56 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While there are plenty of interviews with the Coens to dive into this week as their new film "Hail, Caesar!" hits theaters, it's also a good time to dip into the archives, and that's just what the folks at The Film Society of Lincoln Center have done. They posted a 2011 talk between the sibling directors and Noah Baumbach, and as you would expect, the chat was a fascinating one.  The conversation covered a wide range of topics, from filmmaking itself, opening shots of their careers, and more, with lots of interesting little insights. For example, the Coens consider "Burn After Reading" their version of a Tony Scott film.  "We discussed Tony Scott a lot," Ethan said. "[It's one of his films] except the people are knuckleheads...Constantly on the set with Chivo we would say 'What would Tony do?' "We thought, 'Well, we’ll never do a movie that starts starts with a little »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Bayghazi

28 January 2016 11:37 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I admire Michael Bay as a director, I really do. He is a filmmaker without guile, his images transparent in their vapid grandiloquence. The qualities and values of maximalism, crassness and jingoism that have consistently garnered mockery and acrimonious distain by many are not ones audiences are cleverly exposing, but most often are simply accurate characterizations of the attitudes such films as the two Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor, and his solely-helmed Transformers franchise directly espouse. It may be hard to imagine a film more gaudily self-evident in its values and the force of its aesthetics as the sprawling effects goliath and techno-anti-humanist Transformers: Age of Extinction, but in fact Bay’s most tidily budgeted and CGI free films of recent years, 2013’s true crime Pain & Gain and this year’s true war 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi are his most honest and perceptive, and, because of this, his best. »

'Top Gun 2' Is Closer to Happening with Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer

27 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With every new year comes a new set of anniversaries for fans to celebrate, and this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the movie that made Tom Cruise a global superstar, Top Gun. The blockbuster took in $176 million, making it the highest-grossing movie at the box office in 1986, which, when you adjust for inflation, equates to a $414.5 million today. Over the past 30 years, development on the sequel Top Gun 2 has had more than its fair share of ups and downs. Now it seems the project may be on the right track, thanks to a new tweet from producer Jerry Bruckheimer which confirms Tom Cruise will be back to star.

The last we heard about Top Gun 2 was back in November, when original Top Gun star Val Kilmer revealed through social media that he was offered a role in the sequel, although the actor later clarified that he "jumped »

Despite there being long mooted rumours of Top Gun 2 being in development, Jerry Bruckheimer has been pretty silent on the subject. Until now.

David Bowie, and his film acting roles

The late David Bowie brought something down to earth (literally, in one case) to his film acting roles. We look at his film acting roles.

Editor's note: we don't like to run material to generate clicks off the death of someone. We did, however, want to talk about the wonderful film and TV work that the late, great David Bowie has left behind. Hence, we've thus held this piece back to now. If it still feels too soon, then do give it a miss.

David Bowie's state of existence at the time of performing influenced his musical ‘personas’ enormously. Though such characters as Diamond Dogs’ Halloween Jack or Ashes To Ashes’ Pierrot seem superficially too outré and theatrical to be based in anything real, retrospectively we can see a private life exposed: Bowie’s exposure to fame and feelings of being an outsider informed the Ziggy »
