Six of the Best Movie Riots

12 September 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The release of Pride in cinemas this Friday sees the struggles of the gay community in London meld with the struggles of the mining community in Wales under Thatcher’s rule.

To celebrate the film reaching cinemas, we take a look at some of the most effective riots on screen, from the oppressed to the angry to the downright silly.

 

Warning: Contains plot spoilers and violent content.

 

Over the Edge 1979, Dir. Jonathan Kaplan

With a concluding riot dangerously reminiscent of what London experienced in 2011, this tale of unruly youth shows the consequences of kids when they’re pushed too far.

Featuring Matt Dillon’s first on screen appearance as the disgruntled Richie, the film follows the teens of a neglectful American town as they amuse themselves with petty crime, drugs and necking.

Starring Julia Ormond, Madchen Amick, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Rachel Boston as a family of witches, Season 2 of "Witches of East End" will contain 13 episodes.

Based on a True Story: A Study of Authenticity in Cinema, ahead of the release of Fruitvale Station

6 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week sees the release the incredible Fruitvale station. The debut feature by director Ryan Coogler shows the last 24 hours of Oscar Grant’s life, before he was shot and killed by a member of the Oakland police force. The film begins with the real footage of Grant and his friends at Fruitvale Station right up until the point where Grant was shot, but the rest of the film is a dramatised version of true events. The film is said to be almost entirely accurate, give or take on or two scenes which Coogler claims were only fictitious as nobody could account for what Coogler was doing at that time. Coogler obviously decided to stay as close to the truth as was possible, perhaps because Grant’s family were involved and he had access to certain information, but how much does sticking to the truth actually matter?

The Student Teachers

3 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Here's another installment featuring Joe Dante's reviews from his stint as a critic for Film Bulletin circa 1969-1974. Our thanks to Video Watchdog and Tim Lucas for his editorial embellishments!   Exploitable potpourri of sex, comedy, action with high school setting has enough funny stuff to draw and amuse youth trade in ballyhoo markets and drive‑ins. Rating: R.

Although The Student Teachers follows the New World "student nurse" formula almost slavishly (pretty girls, lotsa nudity, low‑comedy plotting, violent black subplot dragged in by the heels), it stacks up as a nifty little programmer by virtue of fast pacing and an engagingly breezy comic style. Where aggressively promoted, it holds strong lures for the general youth trade and should prove an especially appealing drive‑in item.

The makers of last year's Night Call Nurses have simply lifted the gags and situations from that film and transplanted them to a high school setting, »
