Gun Fury 3-D

Rock Hudson and Donna Reed star in a kidnapping-vengeance-pursuit western filmed in large part in gorgeous Sedona, Arizona, in 3-D and (originally) Technicolor. It’s another 3-D treasure from the 1950s boom years. The trailer is in 3-D too.

The Daily Notebook's 3rd Writers' Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2010

  • MUBI
With 2010 only a week over, it already feels like best-of and top-ten lists have been pouring in for months, and we’re already tired of them: the ranking, the exclusions (and inclusions), the rules and the qualifiers. Some people got to see films at festivals, others only catch movies on video; and the ability for us, or any publication, to come up with a system to fairly determine who saw what when and what they thought was the best seems an impossible feat. That doesn’t stop most people from doing it, but we liked the fantasy double features we did last year and for our 3rd Writers Poll we thought we'd do it again.

I asked our contributors to pick a single new film they saw in 2010—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they saw in 2010 to create a unique double feature.

Marshall's Women and Men

  • MUBI
Neil Marshall's men are numerous and largely interchangeable—grizzled genre types vaguely sketched, owing a lot to Hawks-by-way-of-Carpenter-and-Cameron and to the supporting casts of countless horror and war movies—but he's careful in designing and meting out his female roles, which is probably why The Descent, whose leads are all women, feels like his most fully-realized film character-wise. It can be assumed then that what interests Marshall is the surface of the world of men (the aggressive banter, the dynamics of groups, the various codes and allegiances imposed upon men which they must then either follow or break), and the interior of the world of women. No surprise then that his men are more often than not soldiers, and that their characteristics blur together, ironically recalling a line Leo Gordon utters about women in Gun Fury: "As far as I'm concerned, they're all alike—they just got different
