Frog Dreaming: a strange and wonderful should-be Australian classic

26 July 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Starring Et’s Henry Thomas, this is magical, smartly crafted B-grade 80s nostalgia, if you look past the casual racism

Tucked away in the shadowy annals of Sbs On Demand, along with all the stuff you used to discover on the channel at 2am on a sleepless night, is a strange and rather wonderful should-be Australian classic: a children’s adventure film from 1986 called Frog Dreaming.

Frog Dreaming (variously retitled The Quest and The Go Kids for the world market) plays like a lost tradition of politically incorrect kids’ cinema. Its boy hero is a 15-year-old American called Cody (played by Henry Thomas, the star of Et) who lives in an idyllic Australian valley town. A boy MacGyver equipped with an extensive bank of practical knowledge, Cody is resourceful, unsurprised by anything and ready for everything. One dull day, he takes his two buddies, Wendy and Jane, to venture into Devil’s Knob national park, »

When Scandinavia banned E.T. for the under-11s

Ryan Lambie May 23, 2017

Steven Spielberg's E.T. was a massive hit in 1982, but not all countries found it suitable for the very young...

When E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial emerged in 1982, its childlike alien melted hearts everywhere. At the Cannes Film Festival, where Steven Spielberg's film was screened out of competition, E.T. got a standing ovation, its audience clapping for a full 15 minutes as the final credits rolled. At a royal gala screening, Princess Diana reportedly cried so much that she had to be whisked away to have her makeup fixed by her aides.

2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Stephen King fans, with both The Dark Tower and It set to hit the big screen. However, we do have another King adaptation on the horizon courtesy of Netflix, with Mike Falanagan (Hush, Oculus) directing Gerald’s Game, and during an interview with Arrow in the Head, producer Trevor Macy has shared a few words on the project.

“Well, I’m a big fan of the book as well, and one of the more fulfilling moments in my professional life was showing this cut to Stephen King and having him tweet how excited he was about it,” said Macy. “I think the challenge with that – if you’re a fan of the book, so much of it takes place internally, in her [Jessie’s] head. So, ‘how do you do that in a cinematic way?’ was the fundamental question when you’re taking »

Harrison Ford's Deleted E.T. Cameo Details Revealed

30 March 2017 4:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even some of the biggest fans of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial aren't aware of Harrison Ford's cameo. And for good reason, as it was cut from the finished movie. But now the true story behind this legendary missing footage is being told by those who were there, and it all comes courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and their annual reunion issue.

You might think to yourself, where could Harrison Ford have shown up in E.T.? Was he Dee Wallace Stone's unseen Halloween date? Was he part of the research team? No. He was supposed to be part of the iconic frog escape that comes midway through the movie. Alas, his role in this scene has gone unseen for over thirty years.

The scene itself is notable for including a cameo from future Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak, whom Elliot gets to kiss. But when it came time to shoot the scene, »

Norman Reedus Says Sean Hannity is a Huge Dave Chappelle Fan on The Tonight Show

Norman Reedus was in the news this week because he went public with his relationship to Diane Kruger.  That wasn’t my Norman Reedus news though.  Mine was the fact that he and Henry Thomas have a striking resemblance.   To tie it all together and highlight the week, Reedus stopped by the Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about neither of these things.  As many of you might know, Reedus has a strong affinity for motorcycles. What you might not know is that his buddy Dave Chappelle does too.  Turns out the two like to ride motorcycles together.  Not only

Anyone Else Think Norman Reedus and Henry Thomas Look Alike?

So the huge news trending this morning is how Norman Reedus is in a relationship with Diane Kruger.  The two were seen out and about engaging in some serious Pda.   To that I say, “wonderful.”  While it’s lovely to hear that Daryl Dixon has found himself a romantic partner, I’m not so sure it should be the number one news topic of the day.  Like I said, I’m happy for the two of them and I hope they’re extremely content with one another.  But that’s not why I’m focusing on Reedus today. I’m focusing on Reedus because oddly enough his

Stars: Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Annalise Basso, Henry Thomas, Parker Mack, Halle Charlton, Alexis G. Zall, Doug Jones, Kate Siegel, Sam Anderson, Chelsea Gonzalez | Written by Mike Flanagan, Jeff Howard | Directed by Mike Flanagan

When a horror film does well enough an inevitable sequel is churned out to make more money, and this could have been the case with Ouija. Giving the film to Mike Flanagan though and letting him do what he wants with it, horror fans are in for a treat. This is exactly what Ouija: Origin of Evil is, a treat for horror fans.

Set in 1967 Ouija: Origin of Evil is a prequel to the first movie. In it we see single mother Doris Zander (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters Lina (Annalise Basso) and Doris (Lulu Wilson) running a séance scam. When the Ouija board game is used as a new stunt to bolster their business, »
