Watch: Lost Footage From Ralph Bakshi's Animated 'Lord of the Rings'

24 March 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Footage from Ralph Bakshi's animated rendition of the "Lord of the Rings" (1978) has been recovered. Back in the 70s, fans of the filmmaker were left hanging on the rampart's of Helm's deep when the filmmaker-known for "Fritz the Cat," "Wizards," "American Pop" and "Cool World" was not allowed to conclude his animated take on Tolkein's epic story. He got roughly through two-thirds Tolkien's three-part story. Thankfully, Bakshi's son, Eddie Bakshi, has been hard at work rescuing footage from the cutting room floor, restoring and releasing excellent relics of his father's opus. The clips below come from the moment in the story when Gandalf takes an unfortunate tumble, grappling with the Balrog in a violent free fall. The first clip is titled “Gandalf recalls fighting the Balrog” (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js. »

‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ ‘The Broken Circle Breakdown,’ ‘Dead Kids,’ and ‘The Stuff’ are New to Blu-ray/DVD

13 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Inside Llewyn Davis It’s NYC in the early ’60s, and Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is trying to make his mark on the folk music scene. His efforts seem to be continually in vain though as pretty much nothing works out they way he wants. Is it fate? Or is it simply because he’s a bastard who fouls every relationship he has with his attitude. It’s probably too early to say, but screw it, it’s my column… Joel and Ethan Coen‘s latest is quite possibly their best and most mature work. From Isaac’s brilliantly nuanced performance to those of the supporting cast (including John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, F. Murray Abraham, and others), from the fantastic score to the gorgeous cinematography, this is a tremendously affecting look at one »

Noble Transmission: The Making of Wild Blue Yonder

1 March 2014 1:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with writers Mike Raicht and Austin Harrison along with illustrator Zach Howard about turning their creative relationship into a business partnership starting with the release of Wild Blue Yonder.  As an added bonus preview pages of Wild Blue Yonder #4 have been included... 

Mike Raicht“My grandmother is a writer, but other than that no one is really all that artistic,” states Mike Raicht.  “We all love to talk and tell stories when we get together, but I don’t think that’s common in a lot of families.  I spent a lot of time reading as a kid and I think it was just something I was always drawn to.”  A space opera created by filmmaker George Lucas served as an introduction to the world of comic books.  “When I was very young, maybe 4 years old or so, my dad bought me the Star Wars [1977] movie adaptation »

Ten Tigon Tales of Terror

18 February 2014 3:39 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Although Hammer Films will always be associated with British horror, the studio did have stiff competition. Amicus specialised in the successful horror anthologies and Us counterparts American International Pictures established a permanent UK base in the mid sixties. Other smaller independents took their own bite from the cherry tree of horror with some success, the best known being Tigon Films.

Tigon has received some belated recognition in recent years. Andy Boot’s book on British horror Fragments of Fear devotes a chapter to the company while John Hamilton’s excellent book Beast in the Cellar covers the varied career of Tigon’s charismatic founder Tony Tenser.

Like Hammer’s Sir James Carreras, Tenser was one of the British Film Industry’s great entrepreneurs. Born in London to poor Lithuanian immigrants and a movie fan since childhood, he was an ambitious man with a natural talent for showmanship. Combining shrewd business »

Remember Shirley Temple By Singing Along to 'On the Good Ship Lollipop'

11 February 2014 5:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As the nation remembers "America's Darling" Shirley Temple, several things come to mind. Ringlets. Dimples. That smile. And "On the Good Ship Lollipop," which, with the news of Temple's death, becomes a bittersweet melody. From the time she first delivered it, the wistful ditty was widely recognized as Temple's trademark. She first sang it in 1934's Bright Eyes, in a scene she reportedly choreographed herself. The number, like its star, became an iconic fixture of American pop culture, and over the years the song has been referenced on The Brady Bunch, Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Simpsons - »

President Obama: Don’t Deport Justin Bieber

29 January 2014 7:59 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

President Obama — you’ve got much more pressing things to do than to revoke Justin Bieber’s American visa, even though 136,000 people have signed a petition asking you to send him back to his native Canada. Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?

President Obama – it’s quite clear after listening to the State of the Union address last night, Jan. 28, that you’ve got a lot better things to do with your time than to waste it ordering Justin Bieber to be deported.

Justin Bieber Deportation Petition — Should Obama Deport The Biebs?

Nevertheless, you apparently will have to review a petition on The White House’s We The People site, which has garnered more than 136,000 signatures from people who are begging to have Justin Bieber deported.

Justin Bieber Charged With Assault Take Our Poll

The petition reads:

We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. »

A spy movie in need of shadows: the blunt force reboot of Jack Ryan

17 January 2014 6:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kenneth Branagh, as a villainous Russian oligarch, is the highlight of this thrashabout featuring CIA spies and familiar tropes

The best scene in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit shows someone's first murder. CIA analyst Jack (Chris Pine) has just been picked up from Moscow airport by his driver, a big Ugandan who drives him to his hotel, helps him carry his bags to his room, then calmly turns, unholsters a pistol and starts firing. What follows is a Bourne-ish kinetic thrashabout – sinks are smashed, porcelain shattered, doors splintered. The brawl ends with Ryan drowning his assailant in the bathtub. "In this much water", Jack later recounts in rattled tones to his CIA boss Harper (Kevin Costner), who looks at Ryan's still shaking hand and tells him, "better after than during".

It's been a while since I felt that kind of mortal dread in a movie. Ok, so it's not Paul Newman »

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

13 January 2014 11:53 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.

New Details on ‘Naked Gun’ Reboot: ’100 Jokes A Page’

11 January 2014 1:44 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

A persistent nostalgia for all things ’80s is an ongoing trend of American pop culture (despite so many of the ’80′s acolytes having been born toward the end of the decade or beyond). Recent movies like Hot Tub Time Machine and Take Me Home Tonight have kept the decade’s neon spirit alive, for better or worse. The past few years have have seen a successful remake of one ’80′s franchise (21 Jump Street), with a non-racecar redo of the classic surfing/sky-diving/bank robbing action movie Point Break on the way.

Movie studios continue to mine the decade for dormant properties ripe for re-invention, and one of the more interesting projects in the pipeline is Paramount’s upcoming reboot of The ...
