On the Hunt: The Films of James B. Harris

8 April 2015 9:46 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

CopAt the ripe age of twenty-six—the two were born within days of each other in 1928—James B. Harris and Stanley Kubrick formed Harris-Kubrick Productions. With Kubrick leading the charge behind the camera and Harris acting as the right-hand-man producer, the duo completed three major critical successes: The Killing (1956), Paths of Glory (1957), and Lolita (1962). But where Kubrick’s subsequent work has achieved a supreme, hall-of-fame stature, Harris’s own directorial career—consisting of five excellent movies made across a four-decade span—remains, despite the valiant effort of a few notable English-language critics (Michael Atkinson, Jonathan Rosenbaum), on the relative sidelines. The latest attempt to boost Harris’s reputation: BAMcinématek’s week-long retrospective of Harris’s producing and directing output, selected by “Overdue” co-programmers Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold.Harris and Kubrick stopped working together amidst a pre-production disagreement during the making of what would become Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb »

Movie Review – Blade Runner: The Final Cut

2 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blade Runner: The Final Cut.

Directed By Ridley Scott.

Starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer and M. Emmet Walsh.

Synopsis:

Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is the titular Blade Runner, tasked to track down human-looking, A.I. “Replicants”

Blade Runner bombed in 1982. It has since become a cult, and now firmly established, classic of science-fiction film-making. Directed by Ridley Scott, only three years after Alien, Blade Runner created a world that had never been seen before. In fact, a dystopia that seems to eerily resonate in 2015, as video-billboards and voice-activated technology has only become more common. At the cinema, this is a sight to behold. The vast angular Tyrell Corporation and never-ending urban city-scape that opens the film is the world we see, while the bustling crowds and multi-cultural street food stalls dominate the smoky atmosphere on the ground. This is Los Angeles. 2019.

No description is needed for Blade Runner. »

‘Missing in Action’ should have stayed missing in the jungle

31 March 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Missing in Action

Written by Arthur Silver, Larry Levinson, John Crowther, Lance Hool, James Bruner

Directed by Joseph Zito

U.S.A., 1986

In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, one of the contentious issues plaguing American-Vietnamese relations is the rumour that U.S. soldiers are still be held against their will in prison camps. This is something former Colonel James Braddock (Chuck Norris), who participated in the Vietnam campaign, firmly believes, unequivocally so, despite his inability to demonstrate it to the wider public. For reasons poorly explained, Braddock is brought along on a diplomatic mission to Ho Chi Minh where officials on both sides are to discuss the matter. Braddock is not the diplomatic type however, preferring to engage in a solo mission to discover the truth about his brothers in arms who are, supposedly, Missing in Action.

The funny thing about the movie is the way it begins, namely, »

‘The Scorpion King 4: Quest For Power’ Review

20 March 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Victor Webster, Lou Ferrigno, Michael Biehn, M. Emmet Walsh, Esmé Bianco, Barry Bostwick, Roy “Big CountryNelson, Royce Gracie, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Ellen Holman, Rutger Hauer | Written by Michael D. Weiss | Directed by Mike Eliott

You know you’re in trouble with a direct to DVD movie when the writer has a resume whose titles are made up of over 50% direct to DVD sequels to films that a) didn’t deserve a sequel or, even worse, b) didn’t need a sequel. Yes, from the pen of Michael Weiss – who has written such lauded films as Octopus 2, I Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Butterfly Effect 2 and Hostel III – comes The Scorpion King 4. A film that is, given just how truly terrible the last film was (a shock given the great Dtv credits of its director Roel Reine), truly unexpected… After all, when all you »

'Blade Runner: The Final Cut' Trailer for UK Re-Release

10 March 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The BFI has created a special trailer for Blade Runner: The Final Cut, which will hit select UK theaters this April. This is the version of the film director Ridley Scott oversaw for the 2007 Blu-ray release of the sci-fi classic starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Daryl Hannah and Rutger Hauer. At this time, there are no planned U.S. re-release dates.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut contains a number of small changes from the Director's Cut, which was released way back in 1991. The most significant difference is that this version has the full 'unicorn dream sequence' that points to a deciding factor in whether or not Harrison Ford's character is actually a replicant. About this new trailer Ridley Scott stated:

"This new trailer captures the essence of the film and I hope will inspire a new generation to see Blade Runner when it is re-released across the UK on 3 April. »

'WWE Raw': Seth Rollins Reigns, Daniel Bryan Razes Kane

13 January 2015 7:56 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There's nothing like a night in the great city of New Orleans to buoy a wrestling fan's spirits. Unfortunately, like most of you, I was at home, many hundreds of miles from the nation's home of all things jazz and jocular. Fortunately, WWE's King of Swing and dozens of other superstars were on hand at the regrettably named Smoothie King Center (especially unforgiveable in the city of Hurricane slushies) to make sweet, scripted in-ring music.

So without any further needless editorial improvisation, here are the five things I took »
