WonderCon Round-up!

28 March 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

La’s inaugural Wonder Con was a raging success this past weekend. Along with panels on comics, film, TV, and video games, there were celebs, swag, and cosplayers galore. While I wasn’t able to be everywhere at the same time, I was able to compile some of the highlights for all of you who couldn’t make it to the City of Angels!

Clive James: ‘Leslie Nielsen made a gun of his fingers and shot me. I shot back’

19 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In my career as a television interviewer, Nielsen was up there with William Shatner as the funniest man I ever met

I’ve been reading The Tempest again. I suppose that if Shakespeare were writing it now, he would have to call it The Extreme Weather Event, but in those days the language was in better shape. No poetry has ever been more beautiful than Prospero’s “Our revels now are ended” speech, which is likely to ring bells for any old man getting set to quit the world. Caliban, however, sounds so like an internet troll that he could easily be updated into a modern version.

It’s not necessarily a doomed task. Back in 1956, Forbidden Planet, one of the first big-budget sci-fi movies, drew on the characters of The Tempest to thicken the plot. I saw it several times in a row, and not just because Anne Francis »

NYC Weekend Watch: Bowie, Shakespeare, Ghibli, ‘How Green Was My Valley’ & More

15 January 2016 8:10 AM, PST | 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.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

In honor of David Bowie, Nagisa Oshima‘s Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (on 35mm) and Nicolas Roeg‘s The Man Who Fell to Earth will screen for free on Friday.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Galaxy Of Terror

9 January 2016 9:29 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

By the early ‘80s, Roger Corman was firmly entrenched in the public’s eye as The low budget wizard, always cranking out movies like a reliable sausagemeister. However, to the more discerning trash hound, his films were fertile ground for up and coming filmmakers, a place to learn the craft and hopefully develop one’s own style. And while Galaxy of Terror (1981), a crossbreed of Alien with a strand of Forbidden Planet DNA, does boast one James Cameron among the crew, its most notable feat is being highly entertaining regardless of a decimated budget and convoluted plot.

Released in October of ’81 Stateside by New World Pictures/United Artists, and alternately known as Mindwarp: An Infinity of Terror And Planet of Horrors (Hey Rog – pick one!), GoT cost $700,000 Us, and of course made its money back (Corman almost always saw a return). This was right in the middle of Corman’s space mining – before this, »
