DVD Playhouse—November 2011

By Allen Gardner

Tree Of Life (20th Century Fox) Terrence Malick’s latest effort is both the best film of 2011 and the finest work of his (arguably) mixed, but often masterly canon. A series of vignettes, mostly set in 1950s Texas, capture the memory of a man (Sean Penn) in present-day New York who looks back on his life, and his parents’ (Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain) troubled marriage, when word of his younger brother’s suicide reaches him. Almost indescribable beyond that, except to say no other film in history so perfectly evokes the magic and mystery of the human memory, which both crystalizes (and sometimes idealizes) the past. Like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001, this is a challenging, polarizing work that you must let wash over you. If you go along for the ride, you’re in for a unique, rewarding cinematic experience. Also available on Blu-ray disc. »

Review: Leeds Film Festival's 11th Night of the Dead

8 November 2011 11:45 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Monster Brawl

Director/writer: Jesse T. Cook

Country: Canada

Running Time: 85 mins

Certificate: 18

Starring: Dave Foley, Art Hindle, Robert Maillet, Kevin Nash, Jimmy Hart, Herb Dean

The writer and director of 2008's horror flick Scarce, Jesse T. Cook, revisits the genre in his latest film Monster Brawl. “The time will come when monsters shape the futures of all” begins a suitably jocular voice-over that introduces us to the “most highly-anticipated extreme sport ever”. Making a horror enthusiast's hypothetical pub chat a reality, Cook pits some of the genre's most celebrated figures against each other in the wrestling ring.

Eight of the most powerful ghouls of all time from all four corners of the earth come together and are structured into “two conferences” with middle and heavy weight “monsters” and “creatures”, such as “Witch Bitch”. An American TV show set-up is quickly established with presenter, Buzz Chambers hosting from a secret cemetery location. »

Dedfest '11: Doing the Monster Bash ... or is it the Mash?: A Movie Review

31 October 2011 4:04 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: Jesse T. Cook

Director Jesse T. Cook’s Monster Brawl does not try to be innovative. Instead, he blends a bit of the grindhouse tradition with comedy and horror. Repeated viewings of this film may not be as great, but this movie may work as one of those cult products to screen once every Halloween with new buddies from work, or with new converts to the horror scene. That way, at least this film can stay fresh for new crowds.

Although very formulaic, this movie at least offers a very simple structure before each slugfest begins. This pay-per-view style product combines three parts World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) style direction and storytelling with one part "MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch" style commentary (Dave Foley and Art Hindle are the commentators, but they don’t quite hold the same kind of candle as the humourous antics from Nick Diamond and Johnny Gomez »

Dedfest '11: Monster Brawl and Picking a Winner: A Movie Review

30 October 2011 8:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: Jesse T. Cook.

Day two of Dedfest Victoria hosted Jesse T. Cook's Monster Brawl followed by Fulci's Zombie. Organizer Ira Hunter continued to give out the schwag in generous fashion. The film festival ended with a few more zombies in day two, with Monster Brawl offering a wide collection of fighting creatures. The characters were diverse, but this film is much like watching an episode of WWE on which the film is loosely based. Even actors from wrestling entertainment lampoon in the film e.g. Kevin Nash. Overall, this is a fun film; however, Monster Brawl suffers from some pacing issues and maybe even some plot holes.

This is a fighting tournament that has brought eight of the deadliest creatures together for a series of Deathmatches. You can choose who to root for amongst: zombie man (Rico Montana), frankenstein (Robert Maillet), werewolf (Rj Skinner), swamp gut (Jason David Brown »

After Dark 2011: ‘Monster Brawl’ blows hot and cold (Review #2)

24 October 2011 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Monster Brawl

Directed by Jesse T. Cook

2011, Canada, 90 minutes

 

Know what would improve wrestling? Classic movie monsters, that’s what. How would you get classic film monsters, such as Cyclops and Frankenstein, in the ring together? By saying “fuck narrative”, that’s how. Director Jesse Cook wanted to see a bunch of monsters square off in a WWE-meets-Mortal-Kombat-style death match, and that’s what he did. Why? Because fighting is cool and so are monsters, that’s why.

Shot on a low budget with lots of heart, Monster Brawl plays like a pay-per-view event, complete with a graveyard arena, ringside commentators Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall) and Art Hindle (Black Christmas), hot ring girls, and WWF icon Jimmy “the mouth of the south” Hart. Ringside action is punctuated with little vignettes introducing the monsters: Cyclops, Witch Bitch, Lady Vampire, the Mummy, Wolfman, Swamp Gut, Zombie Man, and Frankenstein. When »

Tadff ’11: ‘Monster Brawl’ strictly intended for fanboys

21 October 2011 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Monster Brawl

Directed by Jesse T. Cook

Written by Jesse T. Cook

2011, Canada

Last night, writer/director Jesse T. Cook had the honour of being the first Canadian filmmaker to open the Toronto After Dark Film Festival with his smackdown horror-comedy Monster Brawl.

In the spirit of pay-per-view wrestling and the Mortal Kombat video game, Monster Brawl brings some of the most iconic monsters together for no other reason than to bludgeon them in the ring.  In addition to Frankenstein and the Wolfman, the brawlers include: the Mummy, Zombie Man, Cyclops, Lady Vampire, Swamp Gut and Witch Bitch — all of whom harbour grudges and talk smack to the camera.

To say that Monster Brawl is a fanboy’s dream come true is an understatement.  Cook guarantees his film’s mass appeal simply by fusing together several popular genres: horror, wrestling and gaming.  Moreover, he assembles an eclectic cast to further »

Fantasia 2011: ‘Monster Brawl’ – Excellence in Execution!

25 July 2011 12:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Monster Brawl

Written and Directed by Jesse T. Cook

(2011) Canada

Fantasia imdb

It is only too appropriate that the World Premiere of Monster Brawl at Fantasia was presented by Tony Timpone, former editor of Fangoria Magazine, because if any film could be described as inspired by arguments from Fangoria it’s Monster Brawl. Or even arguments made before Fangoria even existed. The spiritual predecessor to virtually all genre publications was Forry Ackerman’s Famous Monsters of Filmland and one of the eternal arguments that raged in that publication (and its heirs) has always been: Which monster is stronger? Which monster is better? Which monster would win in a fight?

That is a question that has sold movie tickets since 1943 when Universal put out Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man and continues to sell movie tickets to this day, witness two Aliens vs. Predator films, a Freddy vs. Jason film and even a Freddy vs. Jason vs. »

Production Over On 'Moon Point'

6 June 2011 6:01 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

The trailer of the Canadian film Moon Point is now online. However, no specific date has been announced for the film.

According to the film's Facebook page, the story is about a boy named Darryl Strozka (Nick McKinlay), an ambitionless 24-year old who travels hundreds of miles in a wagon hooked onto the back of his friend’s (Kyle Mac) electric wheelchair.

He embarks on this quest in hopes of tracking down Sarah Cherry (Kristen Gutoskie), his elementary school crush, now an obscure B-movie actress shooting a horror film in Moon Point. Darryl believes that taking Sarah to his cocky cousin’s upcoming wedding will finally prove to his family that he isn’t as worthless as they make him out to be.

The film also stars Paula Brancati, Art Hindle, Jayne Eastwood, Kristin Fairlie, Tony Nappo and Jessica Holmes.

Tfw Reviews: Offspring

28 April 2011 11:23 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Tfw opens with a Ketchum adaptation that fails to hit the mark.

Kicking off the 6th Annual Texas Frightmare Weekend was a double feature at the Lewisville Studio Movie Grill.  More importantly, this particular double feature showcased two film adaptations of horror novels by the legendary author Jack Ketchum.

The first film, the 2009 Ghost House Underground's Offspring, while technically the 2nd story in Ketchum's controversial Dead River chronicles, starts us off with a bang and immediately sets the tone for the soon-to-be blood drenched evening.

The Setup

It can go without saying that once you've heard the premise of Offspring, you can pretty much figure exactly how the film will play out.  The story follows a nomadic clan of primal, cannibalistic humans that hunt along the northeast coast of the U.S. and Canada.

10 career-best performances in the movies of David Cronenberg

15 March 2011 5:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Constantly overlooked at awards ceremonies, the varied films of David Cronenberg often benefit from some remarkable performances. Here are 10 of the very best…

David Cronenberg's films are frequently noted for their existentialist themes and startlingly imaginative flashes of violence, but there's one aspect of his movie making that's often overlooked. Almost every film he's made since the late-70s has featured at least one stand-out performance, and I'd even go so far as to say that some actors have never bettered their Cronenberg-driven turns.

With but one exception, most of these performances have been overlooked by major award-giving organisations. To redress the balance a little, here's our list of career-best performances in Cronenberg's films...

Samantha Eggar

The Brood

Cronenberg's fourth feature, The Brood benefited from a great cast, including Oliver Reed as a glowering psychologist and Art Hindle as a young father struggling through the divorce from hell. It's »
