30 November 2012 7:52 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Happy Birthday, Bruce Lee! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing "Game of Death," released five years after Lee's death in 1973 and containing only 11 minutes of footage from the original production. Released five years after Bruce Lee's death, this elaborate salvage job incorporates only 11 minutes of Lee footage from his original production, which he had put on hold to star in Enter the Dragon. The rest of the time his character is played by heavily disguised doubles, while the majority of the cast play auxiliary roles in what amounts to an entirely new story. There are varying international versions of this film as well as several pseudo-sequels and ripoffs. »

28 November 2012 9:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Deer looks back on the career of martial arts icon Bruce Lee...

Today would have marked the 72nd birthday of one of history's most influential figures. His influence was was not felt just in the world of cinema - his impact was felt in Western cinema, Asian cinema, Martial Arts and health & nutrition. He even changed the way Westerners viewed Asians and had a great impact on the acceptance of racial diversity. How many people can say all of that? To this day his films, his training techniques and his enlightening and thought provoking philosophical ideas continue to inspire generations almost 39 years after his death. Happy Birthday Bruce Lee.

In 1973 Enter the Dragon opened in America and re-introduced the West to the 'Little Dragon', only this time like they'd never seen him before. As we all know Bruce would unfortunately never get to witness the cultural phenomenon that Enter the Dragon became, »

Trailers from Hell: Brian Trenchard-Smith on Bruce Lee International Hit and Posthumous Release 'Enter the Dragon'

28 November 2012 7:46 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Happy Birthday, Bruce Lee! week continues at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing huge international hit "Enter the Dragon," released only a month after the untimely death of Lee at age 32. A huge international hit, this first Chinese martial arts movie produced by a major Hollywood studio was released a month or so after the demise of charismatic star Bruce Lee and became, more so than any of his previous Hong Kong films, the one that made him a mainstream legend. Its success led to an unending series of Lee-less ripoffs like Fists of Bruce Lee, Exit the Dragon Enter the Tiger, The Legend of Bruce Lee, Goodbye Bruce Lee: His Last Game of Death, Enter the Panther, and our favorite, Bruce Lee Fights Back from the Grave. »

The 2000′s: A Vital Decade in Horror Cinema

3 November 2012 10:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Many film websites published “decade’s best horror films” lists in late 2009/early 2010. While these lists collectively provided a rough snapshot of the genre’s ups and downs during that time, with more time to reflect, it becomes increasingly clear what an important period the 2000’s were for the horror genre on a global scale.

Not only did this decade easily and obviously eclipse the comparatively arid 1990’s in both volume of production and overall quality, the 2000’s can also be looked at as a crucial one for horror cinema despite the justified outrage about the American film industry’s widespread strip-mining of classics and foreign films for remakes/re-boots and its saturation of the market with teen-friendly PG-13 rated horror films.

While by no means as groundbreaking as the 1970’s or as sentimentally regarded as the 1980’s, the 2000’s will be recalled as the decade that, despite well-founded criticisms »

‘Frankenweenie’ score feels like a composition that Elfman has always wanted to do

29 October 2012 3:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Resurrection is germane not only to the story of Frankenweenie but also Tim Burton’s career as an endearing cinematic oddball. With his latest foray into stop-motion animation, Burton has revisited the story that started his career, showing more focus and care than we’ve seen from the man in years. But what’s even more special about this cinematic return to form is the fact that all this newfound vitality has rubbed off on Burton’s own musical Igor, Danny Elfman, and I’m happy to say that this is one of the composer’s best efforts in quite some time.

I should say that this isn’t so much a career reanimation for Elfman as it was for Burton. While I’d call Burton’s previous two films grave missteps, I don’t know that I’d say the same about their scores. Elfman always delivers in one way or another, »
