Have Your Say: What's Your Favorite Movie Musical?

6 hours ago

This week sees Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land opening wide across America. Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, the film won the audience award at the Toronto Film Festival this year, and many people hail it as a glorious love letter to the legendary Hollywood musicals of the previous century. Some, like our Jason Gorber, see even more in it. Still... musicals. Hm. While I'm really fond of directors going for broke, can appreciate style over substance -though both is best-, and love absurdity and flights of fancy in films, movie musicals in general for some reason fail to enthral me. Just as some people get thrown out of the drama when the actors start flying in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, my involvement and...

Blu-ray Review: Dreamscape Rocks

23 hours ago

In 1984, a weird film called Dreamscape hit theaters. Starring Dennis Quaid as Alex Gardner and Kate Capshaw as Jane DeVries, this film is about a man with extraordinary powers of the mind. He's reluctantly brought in to assist on a secret university and government project --- his task is to enter the dreams of others in Rem sleep. This is akin to lucid dreaming, but with an astral projection twist. The problem is, Alex uncovers a shady conspiracy to assasinate the president and must fight back against the men in black --- or die trying. Upon its release, Dreamscape was a sleeper. It's found a cult following now that it's been out on "home video" forever, and Scream Factory has given this film the royal treatment. Dreamscape was...

Sundance 2017 Drops Final Feature Wave

23 hours ago

One of the most prestigious festivals in the world -- Sundance -- dropped its final wave of feature programming for its 2017 edition today. Last week, we covered the Next and competition titles. There are a ridiculous amount of films announced, and instead of just copying and pasting everything, I'm going to focus on a few categories. To see the list of features that have been announced, simply check out Sundance's site here.  I'm particularly interested in the midnight, spotlight, and world premiere categories -- and even more so, Xx and Bushwick from Xyz Films. (Disclosure: Todd Brown is a partner in Xyz, and he has not paid me to say this.) Xx is the very first all-woman-directed horror anthology and features segments from Jovanka Vuckovic, Karyn Kusama, Roxanne...

Guillermo del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen Star in Death Stranding Trailer

5 December 2016 12:34 PM, PST

Over the weekend, the new Lovecraftian trailer for Death Stranding from Kojima Hideo (Metal Gear Solid) and his  new studio Kojima Productions dropped. Normally, I don't cover games, but this trailer is so jaw dropping, so realistic, cinematic, and filled with macabre details, that I just can't resist. (The first game trailer starring Norman Reedus dropped in June.)  The trailer -- which is more of a clip -- also stars Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Rogue One, Doctor Strange) and legendary director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Cronos, Crimson Peak). Gamers and del Toro fans may remember that Kojima and del Toro once teamed up on the sadly cancelled Pt, a Silent Hills game that had huge difficulties coming to fruition with Konami. Here in Death Stranding, the two have...

Destroy All Monsters: We're Bad At Confronting News Like The Bertolucci News

5 December 2016 12:00 PM, PST

On the weekend one of my listeners jumped on the comment thread for my latest podcast episode to voice his disgust at the news that Bernardo Bertolucci had conspired with Marlon Brando to rape Maria Schneider for a scene in Last Tango in Paris. He went on to say that at least Hollywood and the European filmmaking community have progressed away from those sorts of practices in the last forty years. (As many have noted, this admission by Bertolucci is only "news" if you discount Maria Schneider's own characterization of the event. Additionally, Bertolucci has subsequently clarified his comments, proposing that it was the use of butter in the sequence, not the rape itself, that was not cleared with Schneider prior to filming.) I do...

Spectral Trailer: Netflix's Supernatural War Movie Hits this Week

5 December 2016 11:30 AM, PST

I had big hopes for Spectral when it was announced that Legendary would be producing it. A big budget supernatural war movie blending the raw aesthetic of Black Hawk Down with the notion of a ghostly invasion sounded like a great conceptual approach. Unfortunately, it wasn't long before the bad news started rolling in. Legendary pulled the film from its summer theatrical slot with no sense when the film might reappear. Well, it didn't. Instead it was up to Netflix to bail it out, scooping up the rights and releasing it earlier than expected this year, December 9 to be exact.     Add to this Netflix' delay in releasing a trailer until less than a week from release and you're really left wondering what's going...

Watch First Monster Hunt 2 Teaser

5 December 2016 10:45 AM, PST

Last week we heard that Tony Leung Chiu-wai had joined the cast of Monster Hunt 2 and now we have visual proof, via a new poster and the first teaser for the film. Running just 39 seconds, it features returning players, lovable creatures and Tony Leung speaking English and wearing modern-day clothing. We're not sure why ... yet. Raman Hui has returned as director of the live-action/CGI adventure, which is once again aimed at families. The original, which is available to watch on Netflix, is a sprightly adventure that is quite fun to watch, and has far more complex action sequences than I'd expected. Here's hoping for more of the same in the sequel. Watch the first teaser below....

SiREN Interview: Director Gregg Bishop on Subverting Horror Gender Roles

5 December 2016 10:00 AM, PST

Gregg Bishop first caught our attention back in 2008 with his hilarious zomedy, Dance of the Dead (review). That film also caught the attention of Sam Raimi, who released it under his Ghost House deal with Lionsgate. But, like the titular siren in his latest film, Bishop lay dormant for the nearly ten years following. Now, with his slight-of-hand V/H/S: Viral segment "Dante the Great", and the gender subverting new horror feature SiREN,  an adaptation of David Bruckner's V/H/S segment "Amateur Night", it appears Bishop is back in fine form.   In the film, a bachelor party becomes a savage fight for survival when the groomsmen unwittingly unleash a fabled predator upon the festivities. ScreenAnarchy: Hi Gregg! Congrats on directing SiREN, the first V/H/S spin-off feature. Gregg Bishop: Thank you!...

Review: Slash, an Erotically Tinted Coming-of-Age Tale With a Lot of Heart

5 December 2016 9:30 AM, PST

Explorative. Confusing. Transformative. Banal. Awkward. Who doesn’t remember his or her teenage years and the various ups and downs that characterize them? Cinematic history is not exactly short on narratives that stage the universal voyage of introspective youngsters who find a way to blossom, one way or another. Even so, in the hands of writer-director Clay Liford and the rest of his team, Slash offers a refreshing spin on tried-and-true coming-of-age staples. The very opening is a sign of inbound creativity. Dropped on the remote planet of Milliarcha V a heroic defender comes to the rescue of an enslaved populace. Just as his climactic showdown with the tyrannical Kragon begins to unfold things take an unexpectedly sexy turn and fisticuffs make way for frisky fondling....

Big-Screen Woody Woodpecker Teased

5 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST

Hollywood has raided my childhood once again! A live-action version of popular 1940s cartoon series Woody Woodpecker is heading to the big screen next year and the first teaser has been released in Brazil, where it is titled Pica-Pau. Created by Walter Lantz and produced as a series of theatrical short films by his studio in the 1940s, the character made its way to television in 1957 and eventually lodged its way into my brain through the TV rerun circuit in the late 1960s. Frankly, all I remember from the show is Woody's insistent laughter, which is reproduced faithfully in the short teaser. A quick look at IMDb reveals a lesser-known cast directed by Alex Zamm, whose extensive credits include a number of sequels, such...

Pretty Packaging: The Red Turtle Gets A Glorious French Release

5 December 2016 2:00 AM, PST

(It almost would end up on my list of "ten things to bring with you if you went to a deserted island"...) It's been a few years already since we got the news that Studio Ghibli was mothballing itself with regards to feature films, and thankfully rumor has it that Miyazaki Hayao is feeling mighty restless again. but regardless of all that, there was actually a Studio Ghibli film in cinemas this year, albeit not an anime one. Co-produced by Suzuki Toshio and with art direction by Takahata Isao, we got the French-Belgian film The Red Turtle, helmed by dutchman Michaël Dudok de Wit. A simple story stunningly told, the film has netted critical acclaim and awards from all over the world. In his review...
