The Shawshank Redemption Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary in Style

2 September 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Having shut it's doors in 1990 due to overcrowding, the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield opened them to the public again over the weekend to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption, which was famously within in the halls of the disused prison. Those taking part in the celebrations were treated to a 1940's themed cocktail party, and guided tours of the cavernous prison, which gave them the chance to see several locations fro the beloved movie. Topping off the weekend-long event was two screenings of the movie, with some of the cast, including Bob Gunton, who was unforgettable as Warden Norton, in attendance. No word on whether party goers had to leave the prison the same Andy Dufresne did though. »

Morning TV Round-Up: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' & 'Trophy Wife'

19 March 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's morning round-up time, with brief thoughts on last night's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "Trophy Wife" coming up just as soon as I know the Papa John... I didn't get to review last week's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" while out in California, but that one and this one continue the late season roll the show's been on, and now I'm sad we only have one more to go before the season's over. (That's the downside of Fox trying to avoid repeats.) "Unsolvable" had a perfect opening, with Holt teasing Peralta with the hula hoop information no one else would believe, and a perfect closing, with a very drunk Jake and Terry finally joining in on a Salt 'N' Pepa sing-along with Charles. In between was pretty swell, too. Terry and Jake are a combo the show hasn't used that much, simply because the show has such a wealth of supporting characters, but Terry's »

SXSW 2014 Review: ‘That Guy Dick Miller’ is an Affectionate Appreciation in Need of More Dick

8 March 2014 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The movies are filled with familiar faces with seemingly forgettable names. They’ll never see themselves on a marquee or win an Oscar, but people like Bob Gunton, Paul Gleason, and Brion James always make their brief moments onscreen count. Their presence often raises the level of a film, if even for a few minutes, but while most viewers would agree with the sentiment the actors go unsung in the general consciousness. Dick Miller is another one of those guys. He’s been in over 200 films, and while a couple of them saw him in a major or even leading role the vast majority found him simply as the clerk, the man behind the counter, the cop, the [insert generic occupation here] guy. If you’ve seen a Joe Dante movie then you’ve seen Miller in action, and the odds are almost as good if you’ve ever seen a Roger Corman film. Miller »

The 33

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Rodrigo Santoro, Antonio Banderas, Cote de Pablo, James Brolin, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne, Lou Diamond Phillips, Naomi Scott, Bob Gunton, Kate del Castillo

The gamble with depicting true-event miraculous survival stories is that it either becomes an ensemble, survival film (here we’re thinking a la Frank Marshall’s Alive replacing snow with cramped spaces or it abides to bold visceral and atmospheric choices a la 127 Hours. Coming off a major flop with Girl in Progress, Patricia Riggen is likely not stuck with a Hollywoodize the Chilean event mandate, and if Juliette Binoche onboard with a breathing a sign of relief.

Gist: Based on the real-life event, when a gold and copper mine collapses, it traps 33 miners underground for 69 days.
