Review: "I Love Lucy- The Complete Series" DVD Boxed Set

30 May 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Review by Adrian Smith

When I Love Lucy debuted on American television in 1951, nobody could have suspected that it would become one of the most beloved shows of all time. Across six seasons Lucille Ball and her real-life husband, Cuban band leader Desi Arnaz, shared their lives with millions. At the time it was the most watched show in the United States, and undoubtedly helped fuel TV set sales during the decade. It has also been repeated constantly since, and sold around the world. Now, almost sixty years since the final episode, it is possible to go back and view it all from the beginning.

Keeping their own names helped further blur the line between the show and reality in the minds of the audience, and watching Desi and Lucy every week felt like you were spending time with real friends. For the most part the situations played out in »

NYC Weekend Watch: Bresson, Akerman, Maddin, Peckinpah, ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ & More

31 March 2016 8:31 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

“Welcome to Metrograph: A-z” brings George A. Romero‘s greatest zombie picture, Day of the Dead, on Friday. Saturday includes Abbas Kiarostami‘s Close-Up, Robert Bresson‘s The Devil, Probably (also playing on Sunday), and Coming Apart; Sunday, see the Maggie Cheung-led Comrades: Almost a Love Story.

“Three Wiseman” offers two Wisemans: High School and Titicut Follies. »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Mummy

6 March 2016 6:04 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our series on remakes continues and since Universal Studios has announced a new version of the Mummy, set for a 2017 release, it seemed like a good time to dissect the previous attempt to redo this story. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Mummy (1999).

It’s hard to really compare the original Universal Studios version of the Mummy (1932) to the more whimsical remake (1999) because the two are so immensely different. The new version takes the seed of the first film and transforms it into something almost unrecognizable. The 1999 version meets one of the two criteria of making a good remake…Keep the spirit of the original but make it into something new and special. Well, this remake does successfully make the concept of the Mummy into something quite different, but it totally loses the spirit of the 1932 original.

The original is one of the seminal horror classics, creating one of the »

Silver Scream Fest: Day 2 Kickoff!

5 March 2016 1:07 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The second day of the Silver Scream Festival kicked off with A Nightmare On Elm Street’s Robert Englund (Freddy, of course) and Heather Langenkamp (Nancy, of course) signing your mementoes and tchotchkes. Following that is a screening of Langenkamp’s documentary I Am Nancy, about her life following her role as Nancy Thompson, after which she will engage in a Q&A session, answering All your burning questions. And Then Englund and Langenkamp will be joined by producer Marriane Maddalena to give a tribute to Wes Craven, following a screening of New Nightmare, the director’s last Elm Street film, which served as a Scream precursor in its meta narrative.

Also on deck today: To commemorate the impact Bela Lugosi had on horror cinema, we’ll be screening four of his classic flicks, White Zombie, Island Of Lost Souls, Son Of Frankenstein, and, on its 85th anniversary, Dracula. As an added bonus, »

Stars: Jamie Gillis, Michael Gaunt, Tiffany Clark, Milton Ingley, George Payne, Samantha Fox, Tanya Lawson, Marilyn Gee, Tish Ambrose, Kelly Nichols, Nicole Bernard, Bobby Astyr | Written and Directed by Roger Watkins

“One man’s fantasy is another man’s reality!”

Finding himself with a debt that he just can’t pay off, Williams (Jamie Gillis, Dracula Sucks) is tasked by shady mafia-like Franklin (Michael Gaunt, Maraschino Cherry) with something of a retrieval mission to a mysterious warehouse containing three coloured rooms; a blue, a red and a black one, each housing a beautiful woman. Williams sends his associate Alan (George Payne, The Taming of Rebecca) to carry out the task on his behalf, but with balls of steel, Alan has taken the item for himself and has disappeared. This leads Williams to pursue him down a gaping glory… I mean rabbit hole. Frustrated and desperate, Williams visits a seedy, desolate »

The 11 Most Terrifying Vampire Movies Ever Made

13 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Remember when vampire movies were actually scary?

Sorry, Twihards and "Underworld" fans, but your brooding romantic neck-biters and your leather-clad Eurotrash vamps may be cool, but they're not frightening. If you want scary, go back to the likes of Bela Lugosi in the original "Dracula," which turns 85 this week (it was released on Feb. 14, 1931). Or Christopher Lee as Hammer's Dracula, or the pack-hunting bloodsuckers of some more recent films.

Here are 11 vampire movies that are actually terrifying. »

Scream Fest Preview: Bela Lugosi Jr.

8 February 2016 5:01 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Come meet Bela Lugosi Jr. at our Silver Scream Festival as we screen four of his father’s most iconic films. He’ll be doing a Q&A, so buy your tix now and get your questions ready. As the steward of his father’s legacy, he’ll have all the answers regarding the first golden age of Hollywood horror!

The films we’ll be screening:

Dracula

The most famous of all Draculas, Lugosi Sr.’s incarnation became so ingrained in the public consciousness that it was the mold from which essentially all others were made up until the TWILIGHTs and the Vampire Diaries of the world changed things up.

Son Of Frankenstein

Teaming Lugosi with Sherlock Holmes himself, Basil Rathbone, as the titular character, and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s monster, was box office gold for Universal. It’s your chance to check out Lugosi’s first turn as »

Ten Tod Browning Films Airing on Turner Classics January 25th

20 January 2016 8:09 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Attention classic movie freaks – Set your DVR for this Monday!!!!

Tod Browning (1880-1962) was a pioneering director who helped establish the horror film genre. Born in Louisville Kentucky, Browning ran away to join the circus at an early age which influenced his later career in Hollywood and echoes of those years can be found in many of his films. Though best known as the director of the first sound version of Dracula starring Bela Lugosi in 1931, Browning made his mark on cinema in the silent era with his extraordinary 10-film collaboration with actor Lon Chaney, the ‘Man of a Thousand Faces’. Despite the success of Dracula, and the boost it gave his career, Browning’s chief interest continued to lie not in films dealing with the supernatural but in films that dealt with the grotesque and strange, earning him the reputation as “the Edgar Allan Poe of the cinema”.
