Title: God Bless Ozzy Osbourne Movie Review Directors: Mike Fleiss & Mike Piscitelli Starring: Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee, Sharon Osbourne In a society of like-minded people, who foamed at the mouth when VH1′s Behind the Music pulled back the curtain on heralded rock star debauchery of yesteryear, fans of these respective bands believed they were given the whole story. To a certain extent, they were. But after watching God Bless Ozzy Osbourne…Behind the Music can eat their heart out. Or better yet – and more appropriately, bite their head off. Produced by Ozzy’s son Jack Osbourne, the 90 minute-plus documentary doesn’t just peel back the curtain…it »

Review: It takes guts to create something as intimate and personal as “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,” a new eye-opening documentary on the Prince of Darkness and his music legacy. His son Jack co-produced the film in an attempt to eliminate the negative perception that is sometimes associated with the singer due to his much-publicized history of extreme debauchery, and the outcome is a moving portrait through the eyes of a new-and-improved, sober Ozzy.
Beginning with pre-show backstage footage of the man himself in more recent years, Ozzy is found working out and putting to use a vocal warm-up CD that was made just for him (something you expect from Adele but not a metal god). The footage is boring and a complete opposite of the image one typically has of Ozzy Osbourne’s backstage pre-show rituals, but that’s the point. The man is 62 years old, this is his life now, »

For four seasons, Jack Osbourne and his famous family delighted and shocked viewers with their reality TV show "The Osbournes" -- particularly the antics of patriarch Ozzy Osbourne. But, like any reality show, it was for entertainment value. A new documentary "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne" takes a far more "real" look at the rocker. For two years, filmmakers Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli followed Ozzy on the road. Jack Osbourne served on the producer on the film. Jack ran into two challenges while producing the film: Fitting 60+ years of his Ozzy's life into a 90-minute film, and critics who said he'd be soft on his father. But the younger Osbourne says the film is anything but fluff. Ozzy's reaction to seeing the film was actually quite surprising. Jack tells what Ozzy said to TooFab's Tyler Harrell. Check it out: Plus, check out a clip of "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne," where »

This year’s Tribeca will be running from Wednesday, April 20 to Sunday, May 1, so its close start date means that the lineup of movies are coming in fast. We’ve already gotten the World Narrative and World Documentary categories, and the next batch of movies have just been revealed.
Thanks to Deadline, we now have movies in the Spotlight, Cinemania, Special Screening and Sports categories. The list isn’t half bad; the one I’m looking forward to the most is The Guard, which got very strong reviews at Sundance earlier this year. All the categories seem to have solid picks, and I’d say this is shaping up to be a good year. Tfs will be there (including me!), so many of these movies will have reviews up on the site when the festival runs. Take a look at it below:
· The Assault (L’assaut), directed by Julien Leclerq, »

Well, congratulations New Yorkers, because you’ll get to see at least 2 films I saw at Sundance in January, when they screen at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, which just announced the second half of its festival lineup – the Spotlight, Cinemania, and Special Screening sections, most notably.
The films I’m referring to are Michael Rapaport’s Tribe Called Quest documentary, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, and The Guard, which Don Cheadle co-stars in, as an FBI agent (or is it CIA).
I’m still planning on going through the full list of entries to spotlight any titles worthy of this website, and I’ll do that in coming days/weeks… definitely before the festival begins next month – a festival I plan to attend, since it’s right in my backyard.
Worth noting is that Rapaport’s doc will be making its New York premiere, the »
