I will be doing my best again this year to find all the Blu-ray and DVD deals I can for you from Amazon just as I did last year. This year I'm also going to try and find some TV and Blu-ray disc player deals to throw in the mix as well. However, in advance of the 2012 Black Friday Deals Week, Amazon has already made available some pretty great deals on several DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray box sets that you may want to take a look at including the likes of Pulp Fiction, both Kill Bill films, The Godfather Collection, the Alien Anthology, No Country For Old Men for $5 on Blu-ray, Fight Club, three of the Twilight films, American Psycho, Trainspotting and more. I have listed all the deals I could find so far directly below, just click on any of the titles to check out their page over at Amazon. »

Funny, it wasn't until after Hulk Hogan had a reality show that his life switched into dramatic overdrive. The wrestling icon has settled his beef with Bubba the Love Sponge over a leaked sex tape featuring him and Bubba's then-wife, Heather Clem, closing yet another chapter in what has proven to be a most interesting read. But should we have seen this bizarre, er, run-in coming a mile away, what with Hogan's life having turned tragicomedy years ago? Here are 11 incidents that have made Hogan family history, for better or worse: Jan. 23, 1984: After bodyslamming Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III the year before, "Hulkamania" begins when Hulk pins the Iron Sheik to win his »
We’ve seen the shots of Hugh Jackman scraggly and bundled up on the set of The Wolverine, now comes the photo we’ve been waiting for — the first official image in which the claws are out. See it below.
He’s ripped alright, but maybe not as bulked up as before? Coming off filming Les Miserables, perhaps Jackman opted for less Dwayne Johnson in Faster and more Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III (when Apollo made him lean and mean to defeat Clubber Lang).
‘The Wolverine’ to begin shooting in Australia this August, then move to Japan

There has been a lot of talk online over the past few years about Sylvester Stallone making one more Rambo film. Personally, I loved Rambo IV (or John Rambo, if you’re a purist like me) and would love to see another, and final, outing. That being said, I’d like to see Stallone keep Rambo in the reality the character was born in.
What am I getting at? Have a look at this synopsis for the novel Hunter by James Byron Huggins:
Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone, or anything, on Earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultra sensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation. »

During the first week of August, Sight & Sound organized a poll that dethroned "Citizen Kane" as the best movie ever made. Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" took the title as the Greatest Film ending "Citizen Kane's" long run. (See Dethroned! "Citizen Kane" No Longer Best Movie Ever! Critics, Directors Pick Top 10 Films of All Time!)
Academians, archivists, critics, directors, and distributors all over the world were among the ones invited to participate in the poll. Now, Sight & Sound has revealed the choices made by our favorite directors (via Collider). Here they are (it's interesting to note that among the list of directors below, only Martin Scorsese, David O'Russell, and Sam Mendes picked "Vertigo"):

As more musicians including Twister Sister frontman Dee Snider and Los Angeles rock band Silversun Pickups continue to object to Republican candidates using their songs in campaign rallies, no legal clarity on the subject is forthcoming. That's because in the only ongoing lawsuit over whether an Ascap blanket license covers the use of music on the campaign trail -- a dispute between Survivor member Frankie Sullivan and former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich over the use of the Rocky III hit song "Eye of the Tiger" -- the parties have informed an Illinois federal court that they are completing documentation of a

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was a movie I got for my kids because I was tired of watching Cars over and over again. I had low expectations for it. Not only did the movie shatter those preconceived notions, but it added another movie to my parenting arsenal to ingratiate my kids into pop culture. The original featured Mr. T and Bruce Campbell. Since I couldn't show my toddlers Rocky III or The Evil Dead, this was their indoctrination into geekdom. I was pleasantly suprised to learn »

Hey Toronto! Are you feeling burly?The Twitch-presented Beefcake series - a dual career retrospective of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger - continues this coming Saturday with an 8pm screening of First Blood. Yes, it's the beginnings of Rambo on the big screen!1982 was a turning point in Stallone's career: even as the mega-grossing Rocky III took his trademark likable lunkhead into comic-book territory with the outsized villainy of Mr. T, the same year's First Blood became his first non-Rocky hit and began his transformation from sort-of dramatic actor to larger-than-life action star. Stallone stars as Vietnam vet and former Special Forces hotshot John Rambo (a part previously turned down by Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta), whose mistreatment at the hands of a »

The trailers for The Dark Knight Rises have been judicious with plot revelations. We all have the same rough notion that Christopher Nolan’s Bat-threequel is some vague combination of political allegory and stealth Rocky III remake, starring a villain who wears a mask that appears to be leftover from your totally sweet District 9 Halloween costume. But the latest trailer offers a bit of intrigue, with a captured Bruce Wayne mumbling “I’m not afraid… I’m angry” in his best Eric Bana impression. Also, Gotham is apparently being attacked by a roving band of Sandinistas. Watch and ponder: »

In a short but sweet Dark Knight Rises TV spot — the first since tickets for the July 20 release went on sale — a few new details emerge, or at least are reinforced. Gotham has finally become the peaceful city Bruce’s father envisioned, judging by the exchange between Gordon (Gary Oldman) and copper John Blake (Joseph Gordon Levitt). “When you cleaned up the streets, you cleaned them good,” says Blake. “Pretty soon, we’ll be chasing down overdue library books.”
But as we know, it can’t last. “It’ll liven up in a minute,” says Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle. »

Fans of Batman are always digging though the Dark Knight’s comic book archives when trying to predict where Christopher and Jonathan Nolan are going to take their hero next. But as The Dark Knight Rises comes more into focus following the release of a third TV spot, it’s becoming clear they might be taking their cues from an entirely different source: the Rocky franchise.

At the beginning of March the Alamo Drafthouse announced ambitious plans to recreate the release schedule of the Summer of 1982, screening in order of their release Conan The Barbarian, The Road Warrior, Rocky III, Poltergeist, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, E.T., The Thing (which Movies.com will be co-hosting!), and Tron. Well, their awesome time machine has arrived. Last Friday saw the first screening of the series (Conan) roll out, and it only gets cooler from there. We got on the phone with Alamo Drafthouse co-founder Tim League to talk about the elaborate endeavor and find out where the whole idea came from, what Tim remembers from the actual Summer of '82, as well as the future of the Drafthouse and what the company will do to...

Welcome to another instalment of our regular section in which members of the HeyUGuys family discuss a variety of topics concerning all things cinema.
We’ll pick a topic inspired by what’s happening in the world of film and invite our writers to voice their opinions, an invitation we extend to you. If you want to submit your own answer, or respond to an answer from one of our writers, then please do so.
With The Avengers making a seismic dent on the international box office and winning almost unanimous critical acclaim, Hollywood’s summer season is already off to a flying start. The excitement across the blogosphere is also palpable with the hugely-anticipated return of Ridley Scott to sci-fi land, and the concluding chapter to Christopher Nolan’s epic take on the Batman myth.
Add to that list a rebooted Spider-Man, further adventures within the ‘Bourne’ universe and »
