Wff 09: Review of Suck

7 December 2009 12:23 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2009

Director: Rob Stefaniuk

Writer: Rob Stefaniuk

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: Marina Antunes

Rating: 8 out of 10

The first time I heard the name Rob Stefaniuk was in conjunction with Phil the Alien, a little Canadian film which was described as “seriously bent.” Anyone familiar with that project may think they know what to expect with Stefaniuk’s directorial follow-up and though they may be prepared for the zaniness, they’re probably not ready for the sheer awesomeness of Suck.

Written, directed and starring Stefaniuk, it’s the story of a band trying to make it in the hard knock music industry. They’re sound isn’t bad but The Winners, led by Joey (Stefaniuk) are playing dives and going no where fast. So fast in fact that they’re manager (Dave Foley thankfully wearing pants for his entire appearance in this film) is asking to be relieved of »

Universal Announce Dual Format Blu-Ray/DVD ‘Flipper’ Discs

2 December 2009 1:33 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ever since Toshiba’s HD DVD (now discontinued) released their two-in-one combo discs back in 2007, it was inevitable that double sided Blu-Ray/DVD discs would eventually be made available. It therefore comes as no surprise that Universal Studios (the only major movie studio that backed HD DVD during the high-definition format war) is now leading the way with duel format Blu-Ray/DVD discs. The first films to be released on these ‘flipper’ discs will be Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne Trilogy, which will be available on January 19 2010.

Although the idea of selling discs with Blu-Ray on one side and DVD on the other will undoubtedly help shift consumers toward switching over to Blu-Ray (whilst slowly discontinuing the production of standard DVDs), I have personally never been a fan of dual sided discs as they are more prone to damage (despite the fact Blu-ray discs themselves do not scratch very easily »

Matt Damon’s The Bourne Identity movies first to be Blu-ray & DVD Flipper Discs

1 December 2009 9:43 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

I was just speaking to someone, explaining Blu-ray is definitely here to stay, but DVDs won’t be going anywhere. I said there will probably be a movement toward selling them together. I just never made the connection they could be on the same disc. Universal Studios has changed all of that.

News release from Universal …

In a move that is poised to elevate the Blu-ray™ Hi-Def format and provide consumers with the ultimate in convenience and viewing flexibility, Universal Studios Home Entertainment (Ushe) announced the introduction of groundbreaking dual-format discs containing both Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and DVD versions of some of Hollywood’s most iconic films. An industry first, the new “flipper” discs will launch on January 19, 2010 with the blockbuster superspy thrillers The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, starring Matt Damon, premiering as individually packaged Blu-ray™ discs.

For the first time ever, consumers will have the »

Universal Announces ‘Flipper’ Discs. Features Both Blu-ray and DVD Versions on One Disc

1 December 2009 9:41 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Studios has announced a new type of dual-format disc they’re calling “Flipper” discs and it’ll launch in January with the Bourne movies.  The discs will feature Blu-ray and DVD versions on each side of the same disc.  According to the studio:

“Universal’s flipper discs are the perfect way for consumers to future-proof their collections while still enjoying their favorite movies on all their existing DVD players,” said Craig Kornblau, President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  “The flipper disc offers an easy way for viewers to convert to Blu-ray now or at any time in the future, confident in the fact they will be able to experience their home entertainment purchases in the highest quality picture and sound when they do.”

This is one of those products that really should have launched when Blu-ray got released.  But everything about the launch of Blu-ray was screwed up, it »

Dancing at the Film Experience

19 November 2009 6:01 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn from Stale Popcorn here to throw in two cents worth of discussion about the year 2001 per Nathaniel's request.

Last week for the year 2000 I discussed a favourite from that year that I felt had been criminally underrated. At least a lot of people have seen that movie for it to be underrated. The 2001 film that I want to shine a light on has been seen by about three people (and a goat).

If you had to ask me what profession has gotten the worst representation in the history of cinema I would probably point to stripping. Oh sure, we all love Showgirls but when paired up with Demi Moore's Striptease, the profession has never quite been the same. Throw in the absurd I Know Who Killed Me starring the ghost of Lindsay Lohan's career, the "all star" Spun and even the dead-boring (if you can believe it »

'30 Rock': The 10 best quotes from the season premiere

16 October 2009 11:39 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

30 Rock! I missed you! The season premiere was back in top-quotable form, so here are the 10 best lines, in chronological order: "'You got cheezy-blaahaasters!...Thanks, Meat Cat!'" -- Liz, who then tried to eat her cheezyblaster with chopsticks "Pete's stealing money."/"Liz's uterus fell out." -- Liz and Pete's feeble cover-up. Pete! Yay! I miss Scott Adsit when he's not on episodes. "You two have built protective shell around me, like a hermit crab, or a mermaid boobie!" -- Tracy, who mistakenly thinks Moby's teahouse is in Park Slope. It's in Manhattan. "Bonus means extra!

Rob Stefaniuk’s Suck and Sook-Yin Lee’s Year Of The Carnivore Reviews - Tiff ‘09

22 September 2009 5:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Two Canadian indies. Two “Kids in the Hall” alums. Two vastly different genres. Stateside, we all know about the crazy worlds of David Cronenberg, Atom Egoyan, and the maple leaf filmmakers who make inventive footprints in the world of film. But behind them is a world of indie filmmakers who do a whole lot with very little. We’ve already covered Reginald Harkema’s “Leslie, My Name is Evil,” and now we give you Rob Stefaniuk’s “Suck” and Sook-Yin Lee’s “Year of the Carnivore.” Click through to get a taste of rock ‘n’ roll vampires and sexual, coming-of-age laughs.

Suck

Sometimes bad films are just too good. They know that they’re not paragons of cinema. They know they don’t have the money, resources, or story to hit it big, and they just have fun with, and make the most of, what they’ve got. Take “Suck »

Today's Short: The Pogo Collection

3 September 2009 2:31 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Instead of a single little film, today Jpp is delighted to bring you 4 short pieces from Pogo, an online film editor who creates smooth techno mixes using sound and video clips from films. Now, typically I'm hesitant to show off any of those generic hack edit jobs that your average Mac user pulls together using their favorite song and pieces from the movie they felt should be rearranged so they fit some wildly poor excuse for a beat. But these are different. These are sublime. Take a look.

{youtube}65PiKsNhCsc{/youtube}

You might not consider Hook to be one of Steven Spielberg's finer films, but even then you can't deny the high quality mixing and amazing composition created here. I think it's fair to say Dustin Hoffman has a rap career in his future.

Biting Into the Trailer for 'Suck'

25 August 2009 4:03 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

These days, vampires are almost as prevalent as the mirrors they never cast a reflection in. True Blood, Twilight, Lestat, Underworld, The Vampire Diaries, Cirque du Freak, Priest, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter... They're everywhere. However, while we might be inclined to knock any new film that tries to jump onto the pile, we can't really fault any horror indies. Vamps have always thrived in that realm; it's their home turf.

So you might remember that last year, I wrote about a little Canadian horror comedy called Suck and its interesting cast list -- Jessica Pare, Malcolm McDowell, Dave Foley, Iggy Pop, Moby, Alice Cooper, Carol Pope, and Henry Rollins. The film has since wrapped, is heading to Tiff next month (hat tip to MTV), and you can check out a trailer for the bloodletting after the jump. The brainchild of Rob Stefaniuk (of Phil the Alien fame), Suck focuses »

'Twilight' + Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Moby = 'Suck'

24 August 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

"Suck." It's as tragic a title as I've ever heard, but the movie it sits on top of has me intrigued. It's a vampire comedy following loser band The Winners, whose luck turns around after their bassist Jennifer (Jessica Pare) enjoys a night of blood-spattered vampire love and returns a new woman. The changed bad enjoys great success... until they draw the attention of the feared vampire Eddie Van Helsing (Malcolm McDowell).

Okay, there's more tragedy up there than the title. That's okay. It doesn't spell doom for "Suck." From the sound of things, "Suck" seems to be embracing its, uh, suck, and running with it. Remember: bad can be good when it's done right. Look at "Crank." Or "Transporter." Or hopefully "Suck," when it premieres at Toronto Film Festival next month.

I will say, I'm kind of disappointed that the rock stars referenced in the headline aren't the members of The Winners. »

Vampire Movie 'Suck' Features Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Moby

Rock-and-roll comedy, co-starring Malcolm McDowell, to premiere at Toronto Film Festival.

Think of it as "Twilight" meets "True Blood" with a dash of "Rock Star." Rock-and-roll vampire spoof "Suck" is slated to debut at next month's Toronto Film Festival with an all-star cast of actual rockers that includes former Black Flag vocalist and notorious ranter Henry Rollins as radio DJ Rockin' Roger, punk icon Iggy Pop as retired rocker/producer Victor, original shock-rocker Alice Cooper as a creepy bartender and noted vegan Moby as Beef Bellows, lead singer of the bloody metal act Secretaries of Steak.

The movie follows a group of wannabe rockers called the Winners, who are, as you might suspect, kind of losers. After playing a mind-numbing series of lame gigs on their endless road trip, the group is suddenly transformed when bassist Jennifer (Jessica Pare) hooks up »

Tiff 09: Trailer for Rob Stefaniuk's star studded stylish vampire comedy Suck

13 August 2009 2:01 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The boys at Twitch have found the first trailer for Rob Steaniuk's second film, a star studded extravaganza which features Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, that tool named Moby, and one of my personal favorites, Dave Foly from Kids In the Hall! Admittedly some of the footage looks pretty poor, but if you watch the whole trailer I think this belies the true nature of the film. This could be a good one.

Synopsis:

Seemingly doomed to roadtrip doldrums and dives, the band The Winners break their slump when their female bass player disappears one night with a studly, stylin’ vampire. She returns charged with sexual charisma that creates audience frenzy and eventually ensnares the rest of the band. Their “hook” launches them to fame.
