‘WWE Christmas Collection’ DVD Review

16 November 2015 6:20 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If you’re a wrestling fan you’ll know just how much the WWE loves Christmas. Seasonal shows have been a staple of their television output for as long as I can remember going as far back as Captain Lou Albano reading Christmas stories on WWE programming; through the Attitude era, where the fun of Xmas was juxaposed with the more hardcore on-screen action; to more recent episodes of Raw and the likes of the “Good Santa vs. Bad Santa” match between Mark Henry and Damien Sandow in 2013.

The WWE Christmas Collection sees Christmas come early to the WWE universe as “The Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley and his daughter Noelle (side note: I’m sure Foley’s daughter takes after her mothers side of ther family…) as they go on a quest to find Santa Claus, all the while reminiscing about classic WWE moments and matches from Christmas’ past.

A Christmas Star review – Kylie and Pierce in snow-globe sweet festive fare

12 November 2015 1:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A little girl needs her friends, her special Yule powers, classic Christmas movies, Kylie Minogue and Pierce Brosnan to fight capitalism in a Northern Irish village

Wee Noelle (Erin Galway-Kendrick) was born on Christmas Day in a barn, lives in a factory town where they make festive snow globes, and has a magical ability to defuse arguments and strike good cheer into the hearts of all with a blink. But even her supernaturally enhanced Yule powers are not enough to defeat the forces of capitalism without help from her school friends. This Northern Ireland-set fable steals adroitly from all kinds of classic Christmas-themed movies – a bit of Miracle on 34th Street, a dash of Nativity!, a big dollop of It’s a Wonderful Life, and so on. But the slapdash, script-on-the-back-of-an-envelope aesthetic becomes part of the charm in the end, especially when a parade of random celebrities (including Liam Neeson, »

Daily | Maureen O’Hara, 1920 – 2015

24 October 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Maureen O’Hara, the Irish beauty whose striking red hair, crystal-green eyes and porcelain skin was so dazzling on the silver screen that she was dubbed 'The Queen of Technicolor,' has died." She was 95. The Hollywood Reporter's Mike Barnes and Duane Byrge note that she "played the feisty wife to onscreen husband John Wayne in five films—three of them directed by John Ford." Along with her role in The Quiet Man, she "may be best remembered as the cynical working mother to a young Natalie Wood in Miracle on 34th Street," notes Adam Bernstein in the Washington Post. "Ms. O’Hara continued to play strong spouse roles opposite major leading men of the day, including James Stewart (Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation, 1962) and Henry Fonda (Spencer’s Mountain, 1963)." We're collecting remembrances. » - David Hudson »

Maureen O’Hara, Fiery Star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 95

24 October 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maureen O'Hara, the Irish actress who starred in a slew of American films including “Miracle on 34th Street,” “The Quiet Man” and “The Parent Trap” and one of the last surviving stars of Hollywood’s golden age, died on Saturday at home in Boise, Idaho. She was 95.

With her faint Irish accent, bright red hair and air of independence, she was often described as “fiery,” but that implies she was a one-note personality; in truth, she was a real actress who displayed her versatility in such works as “How Green Was My Valley” and Carol Reed’s “Our Man in Havana.” She worked with directors ranging from Alfred Hitchcock to Chris Columbus, but is best remembered for her works with John Ford, particularly in her pairings with John Wayne, such as “Quiet Man.”

She was one of the few Wayne co-stars who could prove his match in screen presence. »

Seth Rogen's New Night Before Trailer Drops The Swears, Still Gets Laughs

3 September 2015 4:44 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It wouldn.t be the holiday season without classic Christmas movies like It.s a Wonderful Life, Frosty the Snowman, or Miracle on 34th Street. Or, for that matter, newer, left-of-center additions to watch list, like Bad Santa and Die Hard. If Seth Rogen and his compatriots have their way, we.ll have another one to add our annual viewing schedule, The Night Before, which just dropped a somewhat tame green band trailer. At least it.s as tame as we.re likely to get. While this trailer is definitely a much more subdued version of the red band look we got a few weeks back, but given the subject matter and the parties involved, there.s only so much they can do. Even though this is green band, maybe don.t watch it with your kids. There is certainly much less swearing and general vulgarity, but there.s still »

27 August 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Criterion Collection: Ride the Pink Horse | Blu-ray Review

17 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Robert Montgomery’s 1947 sophomore film, Ride the Pink Horse is an exciting film noir gem ripe for rediscovery, available on Blu-ray for the first time courtesy of Criterion’s digital restoration. Best known as a comedic actor and Oscar nominated for roles in Night Must Fall (1937) and Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), Montgomery would eventually direct a handful of titles mostly neglected by the passage of time with the exception of his first directorial credit, the experimental noir Lady in the Lake (as the film is presented entirely from the point of view of its protagonist, as if we’re looking directly through his eyes), an adaptation of a Raymond Chandler novel. Lady premiered earlier in the very same year, and though it is often referenced for its structural technique, it’s his follow-up title that’s more impressive, as unique and off kilter as its enigmatic title.
