It's decided. After listening to your comments and perusing the lists again we've narrowed down which years we'll be doing this summer. The next Supporting Actress Smackdown will be 1979... So get to watching out there for maximum enjoyment when it arrives. And your enjoyment comes before that if you do because, Bonus, this is a good batch of films even beyond these talented ladies.
P.S. This also means that 1979 will be our unofficial 'year of the month' so we'll have other '79 related bits and bobs for you in May. Please to enjoy. Any requests? »

We’re sort of wishing the great Murray Walker would be available to commentate on this news story. Because just when Robert De Niro and the producers behind Ferrari were thinking they might have the track to themselves when it comes to biopics of car racing legend Enzo Ferrari, Here Comes Michael Mann, What A Surprise Contender, Breaking Away From The Pack To Turn This Into A Real Chase… Sorry, got carried away in true Murray style.But it’s true: Mann is now attached to guide a competing, as-yet-untitled biopic about Ferrari, who redefined the high-powered Italian sports car and was partly responsible for kick-starting Formula 1 racing. Mann has taken two existing scripts, one by The Italian Job’s Troy Kennedy Martin and another from Out Of Africa’s David Rayfield and put them through a Seth Brundle-style merging process to come out with one script. Everything is based »
Review: ‘The Last Man on Earth’ Detours From Network Norms, And We Love ThatCast: Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Cleopatra Coleman. The premiere episode airs at 8 p.m. Sunday on FOXThis review is based solely on the premiere.Bottom Line: Breaking away from formulaic sitcoms and network comedy is risky and quite brave, considering how much money (and how many jobs) is at stake to get a show developed these days. But NBC took a huge chance on “Welcome To Sweden,” a decidedly un-network-y comedy that works (very well in my opinion), so Fox goes with this interesting, […] »

Ben Rayner reviews Decay: The Mare…
Point and click games have seen somewhat of a revival in recent years, both from retro titles seeing re-releases and newer imaginings of the genre, most notably the recent swathe of games that simply demand you click everything in sight until you’ve hit the right item to progress. No, the latter isn’t a great representation of the genre but unfortunately exists.
The beauty of true point and click games however, is the breathing space you’re given. Breaking away from solid action, you’re drip fed story at a pace that works with your own learning curve so what better genre to mix with point and click, than horror!
This is something that Decay: The Mare is looking to throw your way, dropping you knee-deep into a psychological thriller with the concepts of murder, suicide and the supernatural all blended together as you’re hunted by… »

Specialty Blu-ray label Twilight Time continues to show their deep love for film with a continually growing and constantly eclectic selection of releases. The next few months will see Blu-ray titles as varied as To Sir With Love, U-Turn, The Night of the Generals and Zardoz. There were five titles on last month’s slate (released on 1/20) including a great American underdog tale in Breaking Away, an Indian biopic of uprising and war with Bandit Queen, Francois Truffaut’s female-driven revenge film The Bride Wore Black, Woody Allen’s surreal ode to the cinema in The Purple Rose of Cairo and a 30th Anniversary release of Fright Night. That last title — the only one not covered below — was actually released by the label once before with a far slimmer selection of special features. It immediately became a collector’s item, and now, barely three weeks after its re-release, this anniversary edition is already fetching ridiculous sums from »

The Little 500 bicycle race that takes place in Bloomington, In is known for two things: for being one of the craziest times for parties on a college campus, and for being one of the most exciting college sporting events in the country. Both amount to the title “The World’s Greatest College Weekend.”
For Indiana University alums like myself, memories of Little Five strike a chord. The movie Breaking Away, a fictional account of local riders (or “Cutters”) participating in the race, is essential viewing for Iu students. And the 200 lap, 50 mile, relay bike race is a thrilling experience, perhaps only second to the real Indy 500.
So we were thrilled to discover that a documentary, One Day in April, was being made about the race and that the film would be getting its World Premiere at the upcoming Cinequest Festival on February 28. Directed by Thomas Miller, a former Iu student, »
