40th Anniversary – Taxi Driver Plays at The Hi-Pointe Beginning Friday

27 April 2016 6:16 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“All the animals come out at night – whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets.”

Taxi Driver will be showing for one week beginning Friday, April 29th at the Hi-Pointe Theater

Before I saw Taxi Driver in 1976 at age 15, I only watched horror films and comedies. Martin Scorsese’s 1976 masterpiece made me realize there were other types of movies out there and I became completely obsessed with the film. I saw Taxi Driver at theaters at least a dozen times in its initial run and remember riding my bike to see it at the Kirkwood Cinema five nights in row. I had the poster on my wall and would play the soundtrack LP over and over, memorizing the (cleaned-up) dialog. I actually went to High School dressed like Travis Bickle in a green army »

Watch Johnny Depp as Donald Trump in Funny or Die Biopic

10 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the New Hampshire win in his back pocket, Funny or Die has decided to finally release the long-lost Donald Trump biopic The Art of the Deal: The Movie. And who better to portray the billionaire himself? Johnny Depp, of course. Jack Sparrow is nearly unrecognizable under that wig and make-up, and he gives one heck of a performance in this forgotten TV movie from a bygone era.

Accomplished actor and director Ron Howard hosts this autobiographical look at how Trump acquired his fortune. It arrives from Funny or Die just as the presidential hopeful took the New Hampshire primary away from the other Republican prospects vying for the White House. As Howard explains it, the movie was written, directed and stars Donald Trump himself.

This colorful expose is a treasure from a forgotten age, when TV just wasn't what it is today. And people anxiously awaited their small screen movie-of-the-week. »

'Taxi Driver': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Martin Scorsese's Classic

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"You talkin' to me?"

It's the 40th anniversary of "Taxi Driver" (released on February 8, 1976), the movie that gave Robert De Niro his most famous line, put Martin Scorsese on the map, proved that the pre-teen Jodie Foster was an Oscar-worthy thespian, and (most notoriously) was cited by John Hinckley as an inspiration for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

In honor of the film's anniversary, here are 25 things you need to know about how Travis Bickle came to be.

1. The script, by Paul Schrader (pictured, left), was semi-autobiographical. After a divorce and a break-up with a girlfriend, he wrote the movie while living in his car, feeling suicidal, obsessing about guns and pornography, and having spoken to no one for weeks. As he recalled in 2013, "Taxi Driver" was "an exorcism through art," and it worked.

2. Martin Scorsese saw the script as early as 1972, but didn't yet have the clout to make it, »

Dirty De Niro: His 5 sleaziest roles

31 January 2016 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Yes, that really is veteran acting legend Robert De Niro baring his nipples and loving it much too much. It’s like Warldorf from The Muppets has suddenly stood up and ripped his clothes off on the balcony. If you’re wondering what the hell is going on, this is a scene from new comedy Dirty Grandpa, which casts De Niro alongside Zac Efron as a lecherous relative who revels in the half-naked antics of spring break.

Sleaze isn’t a word you’d associate with a performer whose CV oozes quality. Ooze is certainly the order of the day here however! Though if you look back at the great man’s work you’ll find a fair few characters whose morals were lower than an alleycat taking a swim in a sewer.

So before we get too outraged that De Niro is sullying his reputation in a lower-than-lowbrow gross-out romp, »

Do You Believe? movie review: nope

5 January 2016 8:05 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Crash, but Jesus-y. Scoffers and doubters will get their smackdown, but even believers should be skeptical at how this ridiculous roundrobin plays out. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): I most certainly do not believe

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

Think Crash, but Jesus-y. (Oh dear, I mean the Oscar Best Picture Crash, not the people-who-get-turned-on-by-automobile-accidents one. A Jesus-y version of that would be quite disturbing.) The crisscrossing interactions of a whole bunch of different people are meant to inspire us, apparently, to accept the power of God to arrange outrageous coincidences so that they can all do good deeds for one another and, much more importantly, so that their good deeds pay off for them in a positive way. Whether you are so inspired is directly correlated to how much of a believer you already are, though even they should »
