Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Hacksaw Ridge In St. Louis

24 October 2016 7:30 PM, PDT

Lionsgate has released two new clips from director Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge.

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Also starring Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, and Vince Vaughn, the film opens in theaters Nov. 4.

Wamg invites you to enter for the chance to win Two (2) seats to the advance screening of Hacksaw Ridge on Nov. »

Fall 2016’s Most Anticipated Films

24 October 2016 2:06 PM, PDT

So many goodies in the cinemas candy store this upcoming Awards Season! Oh,boy, oh boy.

It’s “Good Movie Season” when we get Hollywood heavy-hitters (both top popcorn entertainment and Oscar wannabees), and the best of the film festival circuit, most recently from Toronto. Many films will have an awards qualifying run in 2016 and open officially in 2017.

While we have not seen some of these (although we have seen some trailers), some movies are sure to disappoint. That said, here is Wamg’s list of highly-anticipated films, both big blockbuster entertainment and seriously meaty cinema.

Doctor Strange – Nov. 4

While other Marvel Studios flicks have explored the worlds of hi-tech, Norse mythology, and space opera, director Scott Derrickson guides us through the realms of magic. »

Sliff 2016 – Within Our Gates From 1920 Screens Nov 12th with Live Music by Stace England & the Salt Kings

23 October 2016 7:45 PM, PDT

The 1920 silent film Within Our Gates screens as part of The St. Louis International Film Festival Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7:30pm at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium. The film will be accompanied by Stace England and the Screen Syndicate, who play an album of songs inspired by Oscar Micheaux, writer-director of Within Our Gates. The screening is sponsored by Renee Hirshfield. Ticket information can be found Here

As part of the 25th-anniversary celebration, The St. Louis International Film Festival reprises a special event from our 2009 edition by screening “Within Our Gates,” writer-director Oscar Micheaux’s impassioned response to D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation.” The film shines a revealing light on the racism of U.S. society, provocatively including scenes of lynching and attempted rape. Micheaux was a pioneering African-American filmmaker and novelist whose career stretched from the silent era through the 1940s. “Within Our Gates,” one of the oldest surviving “race” films, »

Michael Meyer is Back! Halloween II Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

23 October 2016 7:28 PM, PDT

“I shot him 6 times! I shot him in the heart-but… He’S Not Human!”

Halloween II screens Midnights this weekend (October 28th and 29th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of  Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Three years after the original Halloween, the powers that be behind the original wanted another film. With John Carpenter off doing other projects, first time full length film director Rick Rosenthal took over while John Carpenter and Debra Hill both returned to write this sequel. They sought out the idea to have the film continue exactly where the original film left off. While this story is hardly as groundbreaking as the first film, Rosenthal, Hill and Carpenter still delivered a good, scary film. A twist in this sequel was that we found out that Michael Myers had another sister, and her name was Laurie Strode. »

Doctor Zhivago Screens October 26th at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

23 October 2016 5:32 PM, PDT

“They rode them down, Lara. Women and children, begging for bread. There will be no more ‘peaceful’ demonstrations.”

David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago screens Wednesday October 19th at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as the last installment (for now) of their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

The most successful of David Lean’s films in terms of box office, Doctor Zhivago (1965) provides us a picturesque view into the upheaval of the Bolshevik Revolution as well as the lives left in its wake. But unlike other popular Lean films, this one would have us believe it’s a romance about anything else. The political and military conflict serves as the backdrop rather than the driving force of the film. Omar Sharif plays an idealistic doctor/poet orphaned at an early »
