8 Rare Sequels That Destroy Their Originals

1 November 2010 8:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Darren Aronofsky has officially signed on to direct the sequel to the crap-tacular X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  At first I thought it was a joke. Did he see the first one? Wouldn’t he rather be doing another gritty art-house film instead of getting involved with this riffraff?  But then excitement kicked in.  Wait a minute—Wolverine is still an intriguing character… what if there’s a chance Aronofsky will bring that art-house sensibility and do the character justice this time?  I think with this pedigree there’s no doubt that Wolverine 2 will be vastly better than the first attempt.  This got me thinking:  how often has a sequel not only been as good (or slightly better) as its original, but destroyed it?  Destroyed in such a way that there’s almost no reason to watch the original again because its quality is so underwhelming in comparison.  Turns out, I could »

Clint Eastwood: His 10 Best Roles

22 October 2010 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Best Movies Ever

Limiting Clint Eastwood's greatest roles to a mere ten films is a damn near Sisyphean task. Over 55 years of movie-making, the steely-eyed actor/director has created so many indelible characters, it's hard to imagine them all coming from the same mortal man.

With the release of the supernatural thriller 'Hereafter,' it's a good time to look back on some of Eastwood's most memorable characters. We did have two rules: Only one movie could be considered per series -- hence the omission of 'A Fistful Of Dollars,' 'Magnum Force' and the like -- and films directed by, but not starring, Eastwood were discounted ('Bird,' 'Mystic River,' etc.). The debate begins ... now.

Movies... For Free! Jail Bait (1954)

26 September 2010 10:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Showcasing classic movies that have fallen out of copyright and are available freely from the public domain...

Jail Bait, 1954

Directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr.

Starring Lyle Talbot, Steve Reeves, Herbert Rawlinson, Clancy Malone, Conrad Brooks, Dolores Fuller, Timothy Farrell and Theodora Thurman

After his proposed Bela Lugosi supernatural TV series Dr. Acula failed to get off the ground, schlock filmmaker Ed Wood turned his hand to film noir for his second feature Jail Bait, which was produced under the title The Hidden Face. Inspired by the 1935 crime drama False Faces (a.k.a. Let 'em Have It), the film revolves around a gangster who plans to undergo drastic facial plastic surgery in order to evade the police. To do so he kidnaps the son of Dr. Gregor, played by English actor and silent era star Herbert Rawlinson, who died the day after filming was completed (the part was originally written for Lugosi, »

'No Reservations' Host Anthony Bourdain Writing Graphic Novel For DC Comics

17 September 2010 7:59 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Anthony Bourdain is an acclaimed chef, food author, world traveler and television personality best known for "No Reservations," his globe-trotting Travel Channel series that shines the spotlight on the world's greatest culinary treats. Now, he can add another job to his ever expanding resume: comic book author.

Robot 6 discovered a pair of interviews in which Bourdain revealed that he's in the midst of working on a graphic novel for DC Comics tentatively titled "Get Gyro," a story that takes his obvious passion for food and sets it within a high octane comic book world.

"It's about ultraviolent food nerds," Bourdain told the Omaha World-Herald about his graphic novel. "It's a gourmet slaughterfest, sort of like 'Fistful of Dollars' meets 'Eat Drink Man Woman.'"

As for a time table, Bourdain informed Now Magazine that "Get Gyro" is "in the pipeline for next year."

[Tiff Review] Bunraku

13 September 2010 8:08 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In writer/director Guy Moshe‘s Bunraku, a silent stranger rides into a lawless town on a rickety train. Let’s call this cowboy The Drifter (Josh Hartnett). He heads straight for the bar, looking for The Woodcutter (Ron Perlman), the most powerful man east of the Atlantic. He won’t say why he wants to kill him, only that anyone who gets in his way is going to get hurt.

Another stranger rides into the same lawless town on the same lawless train. Let’s call this samurai Yoshi (Japanese superstar Gackt). He heads for the bar, looking for information about a man named Nicola. Nicola stole a dragon talisman from his family, and Yoshi wants to avenge his father by taking it back. Anyone who gets in his way is going to get hurt.

It just so happens that Nicola the Woodcutter is a shadowy crime lord who »

'Bunraku': Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, and Josh Hartnett's mustache star in a martial arts-western-noir-fantasy

10 September 2010 1:45 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

We’ve seen it all by now. A heist movie about bank robbers doing one last job, a romantic comedy about successful women who need to find a man, a samurai-western-noir-fantasy based on a centuries-old Japanese puppet theater tradition starring Woody Harrelson…wait, that last one sounds new! Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Bunraku, a film which (to judge by these photos) looks a little bit like A Fistful of Dollars and Kung Fu Hustle shot like Sin City with a curiously familiar cast: Josh Hartnett plays the Eastwood-ish protagonist, Woody Harrelson plays a bartender, and Demi Moore, Kevin McKidd, »

Ennio Morricone's best film scores

6 September 2010 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We celebrate the varied work of Ennio Morricone, whose compositions have appeared in a range of classic films...

Ennio Morricone is one of the most prolific, successful and respected composers of all time and has contributed a number of scores that are undeniable classics. With the recent release of Sergio Leone's spaghetti western trilogy on Blu-ray, I thought now would be a good time to look at some of Morricone's finest work to date.

10. Lolita

Whilst the 1997 remake of Lolita doesn't compare favourably to Kubrick's excellent 1962 adaptation, Morricone's score far exceeds the quality of the originals. His work here is often overlooked, which is a great shame as it presents a highlight in his back catalogue.

The music throughout is outstanding, with Morricone utilising delicate melodic flourishes to put across the obsessive nature of the film's central protagonist.

The accompanying soundtrack sees Morricone's work broken up with pop songs, »

Bogdanovich Sounds Off On Our Waning Film Culture

1 September 2010 9:53 AM, PDT | Screen Comment | See recent Screen Comment news »

By Ali Naderzad - September 1, 2010

Have you heard the latest? "The last picture show" director Peter Bogdanovich has been writing on his own blog, called Blogdanovich. Hollywood's subversive answer to Roman Polanski lamented the lack of interest in cinematic culture. He writes, “The knowledge of, or interest in, films made during the fifty-year Golden Age of Pictures—1912-1962—is generally either non-existent or extremely spotty,” adding that without having referred to these earlier works, it’s difficult to really understand modern film culture, “not for the purpose of remakes, but in order to learn the vocabulary, grammar, the humanity, the art of the craft.”

This opens up a lot of interesting questions. Could classical cinema be circumscribed to being mere afterthought by technology itself? Do you necessarily subscribe to a torrent provider so you can revisit the entire Shoedsack opus or because you never got to see “Antichrist”?

[Clint Eastwood schedule.] Right now, TCM is showing the Western The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), one of Eastwood’s early directorial efforts.

Gian Maria Volontè, who’d become one of the greatest film actors of the late 20th century, has a featured role. A Fistful of Dollars will be followed by Eastwood’s The Bridges of Madison County (1995), a romantic tearjerker based on Robert James Waller‘s bestseller, and starring Eastwood and Best Actress Oscar nominee Meryl Streep (playing an Italian woman named Francesca »

Insomnia, The Last Boy Scout and Last Man Standing Blu-ray Reviews

3 August 2010 6:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Catalog! Christopher Nolan is now the most beloved director of the fanboy set for realizing a dark and realistic take on the Dark Knight. For the critical community he was already championed for having directed one of the masterpieces of the 21st century with Memento, and now it seems both parties are coming together to celebrate Inception. Insomnia was Nolan’s transition film into the big leagues to show that he could handle a larger budget and big names. It’s more important as a transitioning film, than as an actual piece of art.  Al Pacino stars as Will Dormer, a Los Angeles detective flown to Alaska to help hunt a possible serial killer (Robin Williams), only to accidentally shoot his partner (or perhaps not)?

This has little to do with Bruce Willis, who was at his peak with Tony Scott’s The Last Boy Scout, and biding time »

HeyUGuys IMDb250 Project – Week 24

4 July 2010 10:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The IMDb250. A list of the top 250 films as ranked by the users of the biggest Internet movie site on the web. It is based upon the ratings provided by the users of the Internet Movie Database, which number into the millions. As such, it’s a perfect representation of the opinions of the movie masses, and arguably the most comprehensive ranking system on the Internet.

It’s because of this that we at HeyUGuys (and in this case we is myself and Gary) have decided to set ourselves a project. To watch and review all 250 movies on the list. We’ve frozen the list as of January 1st of this year. It’s not as simple as it sounds, we are watching them all in one year, 125 each.

This is our 24th update, my next five films watched for the project. You can find all our previous week’s updates here. »

Celebrating Akira Kurosawa at 100

2 July 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998) was one of the greatest filmmakers of all-time and yet, I’d bet most people have never even heard of him. That’s a shame, because his long and extremely accomplished career has produced some of the most beautiful, most influential films the world has ever seen. Viewing, no… experiencing Kurosawa films such as Rashoman, Ikiru, Ran or Throne Of Blood are simply a necessity of life, something that must be done before one dies. Period.

Filmmakers across the globe have drawn endless inspiration from Kurosawa’s work, including the Hollywood remake of Seven Samurai (The Magnificent Seven), the spaghetti western remake Yojimbo (Fistful Of Dollars) by Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone and even George Lucas himself has cited Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress as the inspiration for his creating C3PO and R2-D2.

So, with such a powerhouse of cinematic prowess and one of my top 3 favorite filmmakers of all-time, »

DVD Playhouse—June 2010

By

Allen Gardner

The White Ribbon (Sony) On the eve of Ww I, a small village in Germany is struck by a series of tragic, seemingly unconnected events until the townspeople, and the audience, start to connect the dots. Shot in stark, beautiful black & white, director Michael Haneke has fashioned a haunting metaphorical drama that is as coldly chilling as anything made by Ingmar Bergman, and darkly unsettling as anything from the canon of David Lynch. A rich, tough, brilliant cinematic experience you’re not likely to forget. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bd bonuses: Interviews with cast and crew; featurettes. Widescreen Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround.

Alice In Wonderland (Disney) Tim Burton’s take on the Lewis Carroll classic finds young Alice (Mia Wasikowska), a 19th century girl who finds herself in an unhappy engagement to a boorish suitor, tumbling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she encounters magical cakes, »

HeyUGuys’ Night In With Some Cowboys

22 June 2010 7:22 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There’s something about cowboys that makes them irresistible- whether it’s the extravagant facial hair, or the super-machoism, or all that tarnished leather, there is certainly an unspoken desire in most men to be a bona-fide Wild West, six-shooter slinging cow boy. I remember, even up to my late teens, whenever I was asked what I aspired to be when I grew up I always went for choice number two- modern society just wouldnt have understood my burning desire to round up cows, wear chaps and chew tobacco. They would snear when I quoted my life influences as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood (before he hung up his cowboy boots) and Gary Cooper, and I would be pushed to the curb, forced to live life as a castaway, in my adult-sized Woody costume from the Disney Store. But the cowboy life is not one to be sniffed at- I mean, »

Kurosawa Samurai Collection | DVD review

12 June 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

1954-62, 12, BFI

There is unlikely to be a better box set this year than these electrifying Japanese action movies, in which Akira Kurosawa directs the dynamic Toshiro Mifune. Their 16 films together constitute one of the cinema's greatest partnerships, ranking alongside the collaborations between Ford and Wayne, Mann and Stewart, Scorsese and De Niro.

These five all have historic settings, star Mifune in his samurai mode, and range from the transposition of Macbeth to medieval Japan as Throne of Blood (1957), one of the greatest of all Shakespearian films; and the cynical Yojimbo (1961), in which an artful itinerant warrior plays off two rival factions against each other in a corrupt community. Yojimbo was remade as A Fistful of Dollars, and the finest film in the box, the three-hour epic Seven Samurai (1954), became The Magnificent Seven.

The other two are quirky movies that both celebrate and send up the traditional samurai film: The Hidden Fortress »
