Flashback Weekend 2017: Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, and Ronee Blakley Reflect on A Nightmare On Elm Street [Part 1]

17 August 2017 3:49 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From August 4th through August 6th, Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con took over the Windy City, and Daily Dead was on hand for all the horror-fied festivities. Throughout all three days, this writer served as one of Flashback’s co-hosts, and brought back some highlights from several of the panels held over the course of the convention.

Below is the first part of our excerpts from the panel featuring the women of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, and Ronee Blakley. The trio discussed their careers at the point of being involved with the first film in the Nightmare franchise, how the project came about, and their experiences seeing Wes Craven’s landmark film for the very first time.

Be sure to check back here on Daily Dead for more from the women of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

I would love to start off by hearing »

Iron Fist: What We Want To See In Season 2

14 August 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Note: This piece was originally published on May 30, 2017, but in light of The Defenders hitting Netflix this Friday, we thought it had some thoughts worth reiterating.

Marvel and Netflix have created something truly special with their four superhero shows: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. They've established a unique, ongoing, and shared universe that not only respects each character's source material, but also builds upon and expands their lore. Fans have clearly responded, as many media outlets report that these are some of the most-popular shows on Netflix.

Daredevil is heading into its third season, while Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are each preparing for their second, but what about the fate of Iron Fist? According to SuperBroMovies, Danny Rand himself, actor Finn Jones, will soon issue a Season 2 announcement. While that's certainly welcome news for the whole Marvel/Netflix enterprise, it's probably safe to say that Iron Fist »

Posterized August 2017: ‘Detroit,’ ‘Good Time,’ ‘Ingrid Goes West,’ and More

4 August 2017 3:57 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

August spells the end of summer and start of awards season with a couple “prestige” openings from the likes of Kathryn Bigelow and Destin Daniel Cretton in wide release (from Annapurna Pictures and Lionsgate respectively). It’s nice to see big-ish studios showing independent voices some love in 2017 (although Bigelow is obviously no stranger to Hollywood budgets) alongside bigger sibling Sony’s partnership with Edgar Wright and Baby Driver.

It’s not all highbrow, though. Fans of Annabelle have a prequel to its prequel (Annabelle: Creation hits August »

The Female Action Hero

31 July 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on female action heroes…

With the impending UK release of Atomic Blonde, it now seems a good time to consider the female action hero. You may think this ‘phenomena’ only stretches back to around the time Sigourney Weaver donned a mecha-suit, but it goes back further. There has certainly been a significant rise in the last two decades in female lead action movies, but still, particularly on the big screen, they remain the exception to the rule. For whatever reason I suppose they’ve generally not sold as successfully as the male counterparts. Maybe the atypical grunting, stoic action caveman suits the male species more, but perhaps there’s still an inherent sexism. Indeed, when the ladies have it their own action piece there tends to be a level of exploitation (Atomic Blonde has all the hallmarks of an explo film going by the trailers, but in a »

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey

31 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the bone-crunching “Atomic Blonde,” what is the greatest movie fight scene?

Read More‘Atomic Blonde’: How They Turned One Amazing Action Scene Into a Seven-Minute Long Take Erin Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush

I’ve got a soft spot for wuxia so the “best fight scene” immediately evokes Zhang Yimou in my mind. I could list every fight in “Hero,” sequences so spellbindingly beautiful and graceful you forget you’re watching violence. The bamboo forest battle from “House of Flying Daggers” is another all-timer, a mesmerizing fight that almost entirely takes place in the air. And the bone-crunching, table-smashing »

Rick Famuyiwa In Talks To Direct Martial Arts Movie: Son of Shaolin

26 July 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Martial arts movies are true guilty pleasures -- one of the more overlooked and undervalued of all the film genres. I was raised on a steady diet of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Sonny Chiba, and Chuck Norris films. Later, I got to know Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Jean Claude-Van Damme, Steven Seagal for -- for the better or (sometimes) worse. These amazing fighters led the way for more recent talents, like Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais.

The '70s and '80s were arguably The greatest decades of martial arts movies (Enter the Dragon, Drunken Master, The Octagon, Bloodsport)... sure, you had to squint at times to get past bad acting and absurd plots, but we reveled in the pure visceral insanity of two (or more) trained fighters going toe-to-toe. Karate vs. Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do vs. Muay Thai -- for martial arts junkies, it's incredible to watch »

Thank You Bruce Lee : A Personal Appreciation of My Idol

1 July 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

 

My love for both Asian films and martial arts began more than two decades ago, with my earliest memories originating when I experienced the legendary Bruce Lee on the small screen. I was about five years old or so at the time, but even then, I knew this man on television was special. He emanated an aura from within that burned brightly, and by doing so, he was able to reach out to people all across the world, transcending boundaries regardless of race or gender.

The way he moved, his swagger, attitude, and physique made it impossible for me to turn my eyes away.I may not have been sure of what exactly was happening on the television screen in front of me, or why he was fist-fighting these men, but that did not matter because I was full of curiosity and wonder; not to mention, he sure looked badass and cool doing it. »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires (1974)

10 June 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

By the early ‘70s, Hammer films was wheezing and sputtering just to stay alive. Their attempts to stay current with the changing tides of horror were often misbegotten and misdirected (Dracula A.D. 1972, anyone?) as the plots continued to recycle shopworn ideas when audiences were ready for more modern concerns, such as hulking maniacs with chainsaws. In essence, time was passing Hammer by, and they were willing to try anything. Hence we arrive at The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974), a delightful elixir of Dracula and…Kung Fu. This was the last gasp for Hammer’s beloved franchise, and it’s a very worthy burial.

Aka 7 Brothers Versus Dracula, 7 Brothers and a Sister Meet Dracula, 7 Golden Vampires, and Enter The Dracula (no, but who screwed up that marketing?), Legend was a co-production between Hammer and Shaw Brothers, the immortal Chinese martial arts film studio that would crank out 10, sometimes 15 films a year of kinetic, »

Bruce Lee Inspired Show Gets Green Light From Cinemax

9 June 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Deadline is reporting that Warrior, a television show detailing the Tong Wars in 19th Century San Francisco and based on ideas from the legendary Bruce Lee, has gotten a green light from Cinemax for a ten episode straight to series order. The show is executive produced by Jonathan Tropper, Justin Lin, Danielle Woodrow, and Shannon Lee.

Bruce Lee is a legend. Enter The Dragon, for my money, will go down as one of the greatest action movies ever made. The fact that movies like John Wick Chapter 2 are still taking cues from work that Bruce created over 40 years ago speaks volumes for how far ahead of his time Bruce Lee actually was. 

What I love about Bruce Lee's work most of all is how grounded it is. He wanted his work to visually look realistic. While you can appreciate movies like The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for »

John Wick Chapter 3 Filming Details

25 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Collider sat down with Chad Stahelski, director of John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2, to discuss the release of John Wick Chapter 2 to home video as well as the status of John Wick Chapter 3. They also discussed the possibility that another director may be involved in the third film based on Stahleski's busy schedule thanks to his involvement in the Highlander reboot.

Talking about the pre-production status:

“Yeah — we’re currently in the middle of writing it right now,” Stahelski said of the film’s status, and it seems like the film pretty much has a greenlight; it’s just waiting on the filmmakers to get everything into place. When asked when they might start filming, Stahelski replied, “It’s more of a how fast can we get our shit together. But I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year.”

That's exciting news. »

“Let’s see it!” Russell says, throwing up his hands like a fighter while Cordon awkwardly tries to play along. “Come on baby. Get em up. Let’s see what you got. You still got it?” Russell then lands a thunderbolt of a dead arm on Cordon, before saying a friendly goodbye. “Ow!” Cordon says, writhing in pain and clutching his arm.

The pair run into each other twice more, with each encounter more violent than the last. We won’t spoil it, but Russell makes a references to both “Enter the Dragon »

Review by Baron Fortnightly

From his birth on November 27th 1940 to his departure for San Francisco in 1959, discover how Bruce Lee lived through war and persecution and survived the brutal street-gangs of 1950′s Hong Kong before going on to live his dreams.”

Fan Theory Friday: Is ‘John Wick 2’ a Secret Sequel to ‘The Matrix?

31 March 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

One writer thinks so and we really, really want to agree.

Welcome back to Fan Theory Friday, where we explore the most ridiculous and ridiculously-valid fan theories concerning you favorite films and TV shows. This week’s outlandish connection comes from writer Tom Guise, who works over at The Red Bulletin, and it involves the two action franchises held down by the inimitable Keanu Reeves: The Matrix and John Wick. This theory posits that the second chapter of the latter film is a secret sequel of sorts to the former trilogy. Mind blown yet? Just wait.

One of these is Am, one is Pm … choose carefully.

The full argument is Guise’s so you should hit the link above for all the gritty details, but for the sake of economy allow me to sing the high notes for you. Guise has built his theory on basically four pillars:

Fred Weintraub, Producer of ‘Enter the Dragon,’ Dies at 88

7 March 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fred Weintraub, producer of Bruce Lee’s “Enter The Dragon,” died March 5 at his Pacific Palisades home due to natural causes related to Parkinson’s disease. He was 88.

Weintraub began his career in the entertainment business in the late 1950s when he started a jazz club in Cuba shortly before Fidel Castro came to power. In the early 1960s, he opened the Bitter End coffee house in Greenwich Village and booked such notables as Bob Dylan, Richard Pryor, Neil Diamond, Woody Allen, Frank Zappa, Lily Tomlin, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, George Carlin, Barbara Streisand, Joan Rivers, and Cheech and Chong.

The goateed and pony-tailed Weintraub hosted a live weekly television show, “Live At The Bitter End,” with his St. Bernard dog at his feet.

Weintraub became the VP of Creative Services at Warner Bros. in the late 1960s and served on the studio’s board of directors. He was involved »

‘Diamond Cartel’ Clip: Peter O’Toole Wields Cigarettes and Machine Guns in His Last Performance — Watch

7 March 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Diamond Cartel,” directed by Salamat Mukhammed-Ali (“The Whole World at Our Feet”), preserves one final performance from one of Hollywood’s finest, Peter O’Toole. While it may seem sort of surreal to see Mr. O’Toole go from the wooing Katherine Hepburn to wielding a machine gun, it’s actually quite comedic.

In addition to the eight-time Oscar nominee, “Diamond Cartel” stars Emmy Award-winning actor Armand Assante and includes appearances by Michael Madsen. Pretty stacked. Additionally, the film showcases the talents of  martial arts superstar Bolo Yeung (“Enter The Dragon”), Japanese TV and film veteran Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Japanese-American 11-time professional kickboxing world champion Don “The Dragon” Wilson. No, really stacked.

Why John Wick director Chad Stahelski is the perfect choice to reboot Highlander

25 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on why John Wick director Chad Stahelski is the perfect choice to helm the Highlander reboot…

Stunt-man turned director Chad Stahelski has certainly had a good start to his burgeoning career as an action auteur. John Wick began what is now in the process of becoming a hugely successful franchise. Two films in, with a booming and expansive box office appeal. Next up for him is, all being well (as this project has long gestated and had directors come and go, year on year) is a remake of Highlander.

Now I should state two things now. Firstly, I love Highlander. The first film is an underrated piece of brilliance. From the visuals, to the music to the sheer style of it, Highlander is one of a kind. It then spawned four more films (none of which were good) and a TV show, as well as comics, anime and more. »

Hong Kong goes West - When Hong Kong film makers attempt to break the Western market - part 2

24 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Moving into the 1990’s Golden Harvest would once again make an attempt for American success. Unfortunately their first American made film of the decade was the poor China O Brien (1990), an attempt by Golden Harvest to launch star Cynthia Rothrock as a star in her native country. Golden Harvest had previously worked well with Rothrock on the Hong Kong productions of Yes Madam (1985), Millionaires Express (1986), Above the Law (1986), Inspector Wears Skirts (1988) and The Blond Fury (1989). From a business stand point it makes sense why they would choose Rothrock to front China O Brien. The main issue is how director Robert Clouse chooses to shoot the action, showing that he hadn’t learned anything since his Enter the Dragon days, if...

Chad Stahelski Interview: The John Wick: Chapter Two director talks us through the film.

John Wick: Chapter Two launches in cinemas today. The film continues the story started in John Wick and follows our eponymous hitman now that he is out of retirement. It really is a fantastic sequel, equal to, if not better than, the first.

We were lucky enough to speak to the director of the film Chad Stahelski and he gave us an incredible amount of insight into all stages of the production. Here he talks through everything you could possibly want to know about the production. Be warned, there are spoilers below:

On Getting the Right Guy…

Don’t tell Keanu cause he’ll shit, but Keanu’s very talented. This doesn’t really work – the gun-fu, the long takes – it only works when you got the guy. Every action movie has the scene »
