The relationship between humans and animals is a link better described on paper, where the written words can dig deeper than anything visually perceptible. For every good species-mixing film like Every Which Way But Loose, there are a dozen duds like K-9 and Ed. Fox 2000 is banking on audiences empathizing with man.s best friend for Suspect, an adaptation of Robert Crais. bestselling 2013 novel. Fox optioned the rights and the film will see Hunger Games producer Nina Jacobson step in with her Color Force partner Brad Simpson. Ruh-roh, riminals! A medium-sized budget thriller about a man solving crimes with his beloved dog is at least mildly original. It follows rookie Lapd officer Scott James, who is mentally scarred by his partner getting killed in a shooting. For therapeutic purposes, he begins taking care of Maggie, a military German Shepherd experiencing Ptsd after losing her Marine handler in Afghanistan. James. relationship »
With a remake of “Murder, She Wrote” on tap and a “Remington Steele” re-do reportedly in the works, NBC may want to consider switching its slogan from “More Colorful” to “Everything Old Is New Again.”
The Peacock in recent years has exhibited a jones for dusting off old TV chestnuts and trying to breathe new life into them. The record thus far has not been that stellar, as this season’s now–cancelled “Ironside” can attest, alongside efforts such as 2007’s “Bionic Woman,” 2008’s “Knight Rider,” or 2012’s “Mockingbird Lane” special (a revamp of “The Munsters”). NBC recently tried to resuscitate “The Rockford Files,”but the pilot never got picked up for a series.
To be sure, it’s not fair to single out NBC for this practice. Isn’t CBS running a retooled version of “Hawaii Five-o” on Friday nights (and didn’t word just surface that CBS is »

Based on the popular song of the same name by C. W. McCall (yes, really), Hollywood hell-raiser Sam Peckinpah's Convoy (1978) gets an unexpected DVD and Blu-ray rerelease this week through StudioCanal, presumably opening up this kitsch cult truck-a-long to a slightly wider - and younger - demographic. Starring Kris Kristofferson as the ridiculously monikered Martin 'Rubber Duck' Penwald, Ali MacGraw as his 'girl', Melissa, and the late Ernest Borgnine as pantomime villain Sheriff Lyle 'Cottonmouth' Wallace, there's more than a dusting of camp kudos to this throwaway guilty pleasure.
As foreshadowed in McCall's seventies pop hit, Convoy follows an enormous, snaking congregation of dust-raising truckers as they heads for the State line following a diner brawl with the dastardly Sheriff Lyle and his posse of slimy cronies. Led by legendary road warrior 'Rubber Duck' (a particularly blue-eyed Kristofferson), this vast mobile army gather together in protest against local police corruption and trucker persecution, »

This past Thursday was Werner Herzog‘s birthday. We wanted to get him something special, so I’ve made Manson Family Vacation the subject of this week’s Fund This column, because he really wants it made. “I want you to give them money for this film about murder and love,” he can be heard saying in the project’s Kickstarter campaign video. Oh wait, no, that’s just Linas Phillips doing his impersonation of the German director. Phillips, who you may know from his commentaries as Herzog for Tango and Cash and Every Which Way But Loose or his documentary Walking to Werner, in which he personally walks from Seattle to Los Angeles to meet the cinema icon, is one of the two stars of Manson Family Vacation. Here’s hoping he finds a way to slip the voice in this movie, too. Phillips also made the indie road movie Bass Ackwards (which our own Rob Hunter »

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch play two clashing highway road workers in Prince Avalanche, a goofy but rich comedy that adapts an obscure Icelandic film titled Either Way from 2011. Shot with a small crew and featuring a diabolical mustache from Paul Rudd, the film is written and directed by David Gordon Green.
Like a select few before him, Green is an intriguing creative force in Hollywood for his disinterest to stand still, and in the same place. He originally gained recognition by making indie film darlings like George Washington and All the Real Girls, but later challenged any type of genre categorization by following up the dark film Snow Angels with Pineapple Express. From there he went on to direct two raunchy comedies back to back, Your Highness and The Sitter, released in the same year. His latest, Prince Avalanche, continues his interest in comedy, but doesn’t feature the »

Along with two great documentaries on the film icon, the Clint Eastwood: 20 Film Collection showcases some of the actor/director greatest work and his ability to seamlessly jump from genre to genre with equal mastery. The set lacks some films you would expect it to include (such as Flags of Our Fathers, Play Misty for Me or The Bridges of Madison County) and features some films that might not be considered his best work . including Every Which Way But Loose, Firefox and Hereafter. Still, even a less than great Eastwood film is worth watching, and this set does show why Eastwood is a legend in Hollywood. Along with the films, the set includes the two excellent documentaries »

Box-sets, much like anthologies, have somewhat of an unavoidable mixed-bag mentality about them. It’s difficult, near impossible even, to ensure that each film within is of equal merit and quality. Increase the number of films, and the odds of consistency decrease in equal proportion. Which brings us to WB’s latest (but doubtfully last) Clint Eastwood retrospective. Clint Eastwood: 20-Film Collection lives up to my theory above thanks in part to a heavy concentration on Eastwood’s most recent output (which few people would argue in favor of), but it does an otherwise fine job of looking across the years at the man’s output both as an actor and a director. WB has also released a 40-Film set onto DVD. The Movies Surveying the twenty films featured here brings an immediate realization. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to these particular selections. The set doesn’t focus on Eastwood’s director efforts. It »

Chicago – “Clint Eastwood: 20 Film Collection” is a great Father’s Day gift that’s nonetheless a bit difficult to describe. It’s not exactly a greatest hits collection of its legendary star since it’s missing some of his most iconic films and includes some of his most notable failures. At the same time, every Eastwood fan would be happy to have at least half of these films in their collection and there’s no better way to do it then this set. It also may allow for some reevaluation and reappreciation of some of Eastwood’s less-beloved movies. I wish that Warner Bros. had taken the opportunity to upgrade a few Eastwood films that still need HD restoration but there’s enough brilliance in this box that it’s tough to complain.
Which ones are the classics in this impressively-packaged set? There are undeniable, iconic ones like “Dirty Harry, »
