Bizarre Old 'Hobbit' Film Unearthed

21 December 2011 1:08 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Bilbo Baggins's adventure to the Lonely Mountain had quite a few twists and turns along the way. Little known fact: that dangerous, winding path included the Soviet Union.

While the internet geeks out over the new quick tease trailer of Peter Jackson's upcoming big screen adaptation of "The Hobbit," they'll have to wait until December of 2012 to see the whole film. But if they're feeling particularly antsy, they could always watch a full length version of the story.

The catch? It's a Russian-language film, shot in 1984 on a budget that looks like it was just a smudge less than the $150 million Oscar-winner Jackson is supposedly spending on his film. The Jrr Tolkien novel has an interesting Soviet history. It was first published in the country in 1976 with some locally-sourced illustrations (which you can see here), and went through a number of reprints over the years.

There's also the 1977 animated version of the story, »

At Last! The Last Dinosaur on DVD

24 March 2011 11:30 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Some of you may be too young to remember The Last Dinosaur. Others of you are old enough to remember seeing it when it first aired in 1977 or the million times it ran in syndication throughout the Eighties. Now everyone can get reacquainted with this cult favorite that has dwelled in obscurity for too long thanks to the Warner Archive.

A joint production between Rankin/Bass (the makers of such classic Christmas specials as "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer") and Tsuburaya Productions (the creators of "Ultraman"), The Last Dinosaur was originally scheduled to be a theatrical release but ended up premiering as an ABC TV movie in 1977. The subsequent repeat airings and limited VHS release have all been of the 90-minute TV cut. The Warner Archive just released 16x9 full frame print contains the never before seen in the Us 106-minute theatrical cut.

The First Official 'Monte Carlo' Picture Dropped

22 March 2011 2:01 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

The first official picture from "Monte Carlo" has finally landed online. It features three female stars, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, sporting glamorous looks and wearing beautiful gowns.

Based on Jules Bass' novel titled "Headhunters", the upcoming movie revolves around a girl and her best friend who travel to Paris, accompanied by her future, uptight stepsister. When one of the girls is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress, they are caught up in a whirlwind of attention and find themselves going on a dream vacation to Monte Carlo.

Taking the lead role, Gomez had to learn two different British accents, one for the real Cordelia and another for the impostor Grace. "Accent training was the hardest thing on top of learning lines," the 18-year-old star, who uses "Monte Carlo" to take "baby steps" for building her movie resume, claims.

Gomez also hints that her co-star Meester's role »

The Last Unicorn Blu-ray Review

12 March 2011 7:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The older one gets, the more one’s analysis of The Last Unicorn evolves. Children who see it tend to either fall in love with it immediately, or grow restless with its slow pace and interminable folk songs. But only when you’ve grown up can you understand its beautiful subtleties: the pervading sense of sadness intertwined within its fantasy adventure.  Animators Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass specialized in exclusively children’s fare – from the stop-motion classic Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer to the decidedly family friendly version of The Hobbit – and it’s tempting to place The Last Unicorn in the same category.  Doing so almost misses the point. Hit the jump for my full review of the film on Blu-ray. Certainly, the film lacks any of the intense conflict or brooding darkness that we often associate with adult values. The action stays in the abstract and the set pieces »

The Last Unicorn (Blu-ray)

21 February 2011 7:04 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Starring: Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Angela Lansbury

Director: Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jr.

The Scoop: (1982) An all-star voice cast buoys this animated effort based on the book by Peter S. Beagle. Though critics haven't always been thrilled with the Rankin-Bass animation (the guys who did all those stop-motion holiday specials in the '60s), the strength of the story has turned this film into a cult hit. Previous releases have been marred by poor quality, making this restored edition a must-have for fans.

Special Features: Commentary, featurettes, multi-media gallery, trailer

Rated G, 92 min. | Watch the trailer »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Nine

17 January 2011 10:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Machine Gun Preacher

Opens: 2011

Cast: Gerard Butler, Michelle Monaghan, Michael Shannon, Madeline Carroll, Kathy Baker

Director: Marc Forster

Summary: After finding God, drug-dealing biker Sam Childers renounces his outlaw ways and embarks on a spiritual path, becoming a crusader for hundreds of desperate and helpless children who were being forced to become soldiers in war-torn southern Sudan.

Analysis: Despite taking the freshly rejuvenated James Bond franchise and nearly destroying it with the very disappointing "Quantum of Solace", German-Swiss filmmaker Marc Forster still has a decent amount of good will left thanks to strong earlier efforts like "Monster's Ball," "Finding Neverland," "Stranger Than Fiction" and "The Kite Runner".

Now, in his first film since that Bond outing, Forster returns to serious drama with this true story tale of a biker who became a humanitarian crusader for children in the Sudan. The story itself is fascinating, the born again Sam Childers and »
