“Dream The Crow Black Dream”: Jerry’s Look Back At The Crow

22 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When something hits for me, it Hits. I’ve always been that way and I doubt that the fervor I have for everything I dig will ever lessen. That excitement, while having led me into a lot of great memories, have given me an equal amount of recent moments, full of wondering, “What the hell was I thinking?”. I recently experienced that feeling of embarrassment when showing my kids the greatness that is the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed masterpiece, The Crow.  It’s a film that holds up in every single way, never loses its charm and still packs a punch, but also recalls a time in my life when the then 13 year old version of myself wasn’t into the film, I was Obsessed with it. It led me to dig a little deeper into the memory that fades with time as you get older, and the experience of revisiting »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

22 November 2014 3:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Starry Eyes’: The feel disturbed movie of the year

This film is at its very core a success story. A very demented, gory, horrifying and darkly comical success story – one with tinges of satanic cult horror wrapped in psychological terror. The plot follows a young aspiring actress, Sarah, as she is called back to audition for a horror film that is being produced by a mysterious production company that pushes her to her limits – a dark exchange for fame and fortune… click here to read the article. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I’ is all prologue

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded orPirates of »

‘Enter the Dragon’ – A Cultural Education

22 November 2014 3:06 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Enter the Dragon

Written by Michael Allin and Bruce Lee

Directed by Robert Clouse and Bruce Lee (uncredited)

USA and Hong Kong, 1973

For most people, Enter the Dragon is a quintessential action film.  The first Chinese martial arts film co-produced in Hollywood, it launched the genre, not to mention its late leading man Bruce Lee, to Western audiences.  Not only does it compass elements of a thriller and an action film, but it is also culturally relevant.

Shaolin member Lee (Bruce Lee) is invited to a competition against other martial artists organised by Han (Shih Kien), a mysterious man who is being investigated by British Intelligence for drug trafficking and prostitution.  While other competitors such as Roper (John Saxon) and Williams (Jim Kelly) are respectively evading the mob and the law, Lee participates to regain the honour of the Shaolin temple and seek revenge for his sister’s death.

Spend This Thanksgiving with a 48-Hour Kung Fu-Movie Marathon

17 November 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Everyone has their own Thanksgiving movie-watching traditions. A lot of people watch James Bond movies for days on end. Others watch comedies about families coming together for the holiday. This year, however, we've got something that tops all those normal, safe and maybe a little boring movie marathons: A 48-hour kung fu marathon. Dubbed The Way of the Turkey, El Rey Network's new marathon starts on Thursday, November 27 and features plenty of kung fu classics pepperd with appearances from many, many martial arts icons, but perhaps the jewel of this inspired programing block is a special screening of Enter the Dragon timed to start at the exact minute Bruce Lee was born 74 years ago. Check out this funny preview of the event and then head here to find what channel...

31 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you're in the mood for an action movie, Netflix has plenty to stream. Great, except that so many of their action titles are no-name, forgettable schlock. So we've done some of the heavy lifting by highlighting the best of the best currently available in the genre. Who do you want to see duke it out? Take your pick, from gangsters to gladiators, robots to ninjas, schoolkids to superheroes.

Cue that suiting-up pre-battle montage and start streaming, because here are some of the best action movies Netflix has to offer. (Availability subject to change.)

1. "13 Assassins" (2010) R

From director Takashi Miike ("Audition," "Ichi the Killer") comes this action-packed, samurai spectacular about 13 assassins on a suicide mission. Dig that 45-minute battle scene!

A cop (Nick Nolte) and a criminal (Eddie Murphy) have 48 hours to round up two cop-killers in this fast-paced action comedy classic.

An Interview with Martial Arts Film Legend Gary Daniels

15 October 2014 6:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Manny Camacho interviews action film star Gary Daniels

Waking up at 4:30 Am is not something many of us like to do. Waking up to go to work at such an ungodly hour is usually far worse. However, waking up at this ungodly hour to go to work because I get to interview a martial art and action star I grew up watching…that is a treat!

Gary Daniels is a prolific actor and martial artist that has been in films on both sides of the pond for over 25 years. He got his start with a variety of talented people in the industry like Jackie Chan, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Lorenzo Lamas, Richard Norton, Malcolm McDowell, Costas Mandylor and a variety of others.

I remember first seeing him on screen as one of the villains in Jackie Chan’s City Hunter, opposite Chan as the main opposition protecting the main antagonist, »

Bluray Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 40th Anniversary 4-Disc Collector’s Edition Bluray

23 September 2014 7:57 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Dark Sky Films’ 40th Anniversary 4-disc Collector’s Edition

We’ve all experienced The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in different ways. For some of us, it came later in life (my embarrassing introduction to the original film can be read here) and for some it was an odd yet interesting experience (during our interview with Bill Moseley a while back, he mentioned seeing it as a double feature with Enter The Dragon). Whatever situation you went through while seeing Tobe Hooper’s masterpiece, one thing cannot be denied: it’s a film that is unparalleled by any other film. A rare perfect film, full of performances that were given under the worst conditions possible, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has not lost a single amount of its edge over the 40 years that have passed since it’s 1974 release. During a recent celebration of the film’s milestone anniversary, Icons’ head honcho Rob G. »

Double Review: Deadly Eyes & Leviathan (Blu-ray)

6 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory recently gifted us genre fans a double dose of creature feature terrors with their Blu-ray releases of the killer rat flick Deadly Eyes and George P. Cosmatos’ hugely underrated deep sea horror film Leviathan.  While both films aren’t necessarily well-known amongst more casual fans, it’s great to see Scream put such great effort into their presentations for each of these cult classics.

For those who haven’t seen it before, Deadly Eyes (or Rats)is a rather ridiculous (but wonderfully so) early ‘80s nature-run-amok story that plays up the concerns and dangers of modern urban society by way of roided-out killer rat infestations that have a penchant for human flesh. The film takes its premise very seriously, but it’s the use of Daschunds in rat costumes that has given Deadly Eyes something of an unintentional comedic spin, making for a rather uneven horror film.

Summer Film Budgets vs. Total Worldwide Grosses

2 September 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.

Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

Vital lessons we've learned from major action movies

2 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Everything we know, we learned from the movies of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren, and Seagal...

Teachers? Professors? Lectures? Pfft. They don’t know anything. You don’t learn things from books. You learn things from hanging out of a helicopter blowing up a small army. That’s real life experience. Unfortunately most of us have jobs, responsibilities and the like stopping us from going on our own violent adventures and escapades, so we have to turn to the pantheon of great action stars to educate us. Here, in one handy guide, are some life lessons to take from the work of Arnie, Sly and the rest.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

There are two key traits that we can gather from Schwarzenegger’s body of work that we should emulate. The first, and most prominent, is to always have something cool to say, especially after an act of violence. Try to make it relevant to the situation. »

Be Water, My Friend: The 10 Most Defining Bruce Lee Moments

27 August 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every once in a while, something very profound happens that changes life as we know it. One such occurrence took place in my life 20 years ago, and as such, shaped my ideals and passions into what they are today. At 8 years old through persuasion of my mother, I sat and watched for the first time probably what I consider to be the most influential movie of all time. The movie itself was very simple, but it was also one of the first of its kind and has spawned countless imitations since its release 40 years ago. The star is unmistakable and loved throughout the world, the man who opened up the door of martial arts in cinema to the West. The chiseled body, the lightning fast moves, the immovable fixed gaze, the animalistic scream, we all know who he is. The movie: Enter The Dragon; the man: Lee Jun Fan aka Bruce Lee. »

Eternal 'Expendables:' Mma Fighters Battle to Break Through in Hollywood

15 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy's theatrical release, I wrote about the Curse of Tor Johnson, named after the old-school wrestler (and Ed Wood muse) who may have also been responsible for 50 years of terrible performances from professional wrestlers.

Since I wrote for WWE's Monday Night Raw for about six months, I wondered if the presence of Dave Bautista, a former champion, would jinx Guardians' box-office mojo. Three weeks into its theatrical run (and more than $175 million in receipts later), it's safe to say the Curse has been broken. »

That's What I Call Movies: The Hits of '73

24 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

To give the impending Smackdown some context we're looking at the year 1973. Here's Glenn on tickets sold...

1973 was like the end of a box-office era. While year-end charts weren’t suffocated with superheroes, CGI natural disasters, and dystopian visions of futuristic societies for a little while yet, but 1973 was as far as I can tell the last year to not have a single now-traditional effects-driven film in the top ten hits of the year. Just one year later in 1974 the end-of-year charts would include the one-two punch The Towering Inferno and Earthquake (plus Airport '75), and 1975 essentially ushered in the modern era of the blockbuster with Jaws and since then it's been a steady increase.

Here is what the top ten films of 1973 looked like.

01 The Sting $156m 

02 The Exorcist $128m

03 American Graffiti $96.3m

04 Papillon $53.3

05 The Way We Were $45m

06 Magnum Force $39.7

07 Last Tango In Paris $36.1

08 Live And Let Die »

10 Fun Facts about The Karate Kid that You May Not Know

27 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This month marks 30 years since Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita's The Karate Kid was released in theaters. I love this movie, and it's hard to believe that it has really been 3 decades since I went to the movies with my parents to see it. This is another one of those classic 80s films that I have never gotten tired of watching over the years. I still revisit it every now and then just for the fun of it, and I enjoy it every time. 

In honor of the films 30th birthday, I've put together a list of ten interesting facts about the movie that you might not know. Your trivia knowledge of this film is about to be enhanced.

The yellow classic automobile that Daniel polishes in the famous "wax-on/wax-off" training scene, then later offered by Mr. Miyagi as Daniel's birthday gift, was actually given to Ralph Macchio by the producer, »

How Indie DVD Label Shout! Factory Has Survived the Digital Age

26 June 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If physical media is dying, as the business pundits have been telling us for years, then someone forget to send the memo to Shout! Factory. Born ten years ago out of the DNA of the original Rhino Records crew, Shout! Factory is the pop culture geek squad of home video and it has carved out a niche in the home video industry—actually, a few niches, from horror and science fiction to cult movies to classic TV. Last year, the company released over 300 titles on Blu-ray and DVD, including a handful of remastered John Carpenter special editions and an impressive box set of Bruce Lee films (everything but "Enter the Dragon") on Blu-ray and DVD. Coming up in 2014 is a deluxe set of 16 Werner Herzog films on Blu-ray (slated for the end of July) and a complete "Halloween" box set, from Carpenter's original to Rob Zombie's revivals, produced in »

The Dusty VHS Corner: Bloody Bloodfists Part 1

21 June 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe delves into The Dusty VHS Corner to kick off a Bloodfist marathon…

Bruce Lee’s short film career left a lasting impression on action cinema. His major breakout hit, Enter The Dragon, set the bar for the martial arts tournament film. When the 80’s rolled around the sub-genre was further popularized with the breakout success of Jean Claude Van Damme with Bloodsport, and then later, Kickboxer. These films seemed to find a willing audience on the big screen, but even more so, on video. These films also appealed to producers too. Unlike perhaps the Rambo style film and all the pyrotechnics and disposable war vehicles required, a good martial arts film could be shot for peanuts.

Step forward legendary low budget producer/director Roger Corman. The formula seemed simple. Pluck a martial arts expert from somewhere and have him fight his way through disposable opponents until fighting the imposing villain of the piece. »
