Tab Hunter Confidential

26 August 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

What's the right thing to say about a closeted movie career in an industry that feeds on gossip? There's plenty to say, if you're Tab Hunter. The '50s heartthrob breaks his silence with a remarkably candid and positive account of his astonishing, unique Hollywood experience.

'The Neon Demon' is being called everything from 'hot garbage' to 'absolutely beautiful'

23 June 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nicholas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon premiered to boos and catcalls at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and based on everything I know about the Danish director/provocateur (who also directed Drive, Only God Forgives and Bronson), I suspect that’s the reaction he was going for. While it would be inaccurate to claim that critics either love or hate the film (there are a number of “C”-ish reviews in there), it takes a special kind of filmmaker to make a movie that can be deemed “absolutely beautiful” by one critic and “hot garbage” by another. There’s a lot of red and green on the movie’s Metacritic profile, is all I’m saying. In case you’re unfamiliar, here’s the basic premise: aspiring model Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to Los Angeles (not New York?), where her “youth and vitality are devoured by a group »

Rollercoaster

18 June 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A mad extortionist is blowing up rollercoaster rides. Put-upon George Segal must stop him because we all know that the time, the tide and roller coasters wait for no man. Producer Jennings Lang's by-the-numbers suspense thriller is light on suspense and thrills, but the cast is good and the screenplay at least partly intelligent. And hey -- it's got a teenage Helen Hunt! Rollercoaster Blu-ray Shout! Factory 1977 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 119 min. / Street Date June 21, 2016 / 19.99 Starring George Segal, Timothy Bottoms, Henry Fonda, Helen Hunt, Harry Guardino, Susan Strasberg, Craig Wasson, Robert Quarry, Quinn Redeker, Dick Wesson, Gary Franklin, Steve Guttenberg. Cinematography David M. Walsh Original Music Lalo Schifrin Written by Richard Levinson, William Link, Tommy Cook Produced by Jennings Lang Directed by James Goldstone

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

26 January 2016 10:24 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is my film review and it Freaks Me Out!  Girlie-art legend Russ Meyer and then- tyro critic Roger Ebert fashion the most garish, vulgar and absurd satire of wild Hollywood that they can think of, a camp vision of joy straight from the dizzy imagination of a breast-obsessed glamour photographer. All your favorites are here -- Erica Gavin, Dolly Read, Marcia McBroom, Cynthia Meyers, Edy Williams. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls + The Seven Minutes Region B Blu-ray + Pal DVD Arrow Video (UK) 1970 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 109 min. / Street Date January 18, 2016 / Available from Amazon UK £17.99 Starring Dolly Read, Cynthia Meyers, Marcia McBroom, Erica Gavin, John Lazar, Michael Blodgett, David Gurian, Edy Williams, Phyllis Davis, Harrison Page, Duncan McLeod, Charles Napier, Haji, Pam Grier, Coleman Francis, The Strawberry Alarm Clock.
