Billed as "a brass-knuckle punch in its startling revelation of teenage savages" and based on the book of the same name by Evan Hunter – aka crime writer Ed McBain – who drew on his own experiences as a teacher in the Bronx – Blackboard Jungle ushered in the age of the teenage delinquent. In London, Brooks's film attracted crowds of Teddy Boys, who slashed cinema seats, danced in the aisles and actually started a riot.
The reason for such shocking behaviour wasn't so much the film's content, which today garners a more sober 12 rating, but because of the use of »
Francis Ford Coppola‘s Rumble Fish is turning 30 years old this Monday. While its theatrical release was October 21, 1983, the film made its debut at the New York Film Festival earlier in the month, on the 7th. Since then, it has taken on more of a cult status rather than joining the classic ranks of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. That’s a pity, because it’s arguably as good as Coppola’s most well-respected hits. The teen angst picture stars Matt Dillon as a kid trying to live up to the reputation of his brother, “The Motorcycle Boy” (Mickey Rourke). And it has always been a favorite of mine. In fact, the sole poster framed in my apartment is a one-sheet from the film. It’s just that great. At the time, it was Coppola’s most experimental movie. It’s a bizarre trip into this hellish place where everything is soaked in dread and smoke. The »

Peter Debruge: Looking back on 11 days and several hundred movies, it’s somewhat disheartening to realize this is the year that Oscar hype all but overwhelmed the Toronto Film Festival. Things have been gradually building up to this, considering that the festival served to launch such best-picture winners as “American Beauty,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The King’s Speech” and “Argo,” among others, but it’s unfortunate that this hollow chatter has taken the place of substantial conversation about the merits of the many films on offer, the vast majority of which were conceived with no designs on earning little gold statues.
There’s a silver lining for those who’ve been following from a distance all the buzz around such heftily financed pictures as “12 Years a Slave,” “August: Osage County,” “Rush,” “Gravity” and “Prisoners,” as well as the scrappy, super-indie “Dallas Buyers Club,” a movie no one wanted to make but »

Based on S.E. Hinton's novel, The Outsiders featured a group of young actors destined for stardom - Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez and Tom Cruise. The score to the film was written by Francis Coppola's father Carmine who contributed music for all three Godfather films, and sharing an Academy Award for Part II with Nino Rota. This 30th anniversary re-mastered edition is the most complete version of the soundtrack and contains much unreleased music from the film, most notably Stevie Wonder's tender and beguiling ballad “Stay Gold.” The poster inlay contains an extensive essay on the music to the film based on interviews with those involved including Francis Ford Coppola. Track listing: 1. Stay Gold - Stevie Wonder 2. Fate Theme 3. Country Suite 4. Cherry Says »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Phase 4 Films Directors: Duane Graves and Justin Meeks. Writer: Kim Henkel. Cast: Ali Faulkner, Edwin Neal, Marilyn Burns, Derek Lee Nixon, Karrie Cox and Sonny Carl Davis. Butcher Boys is a cannibal film set in Texas, from writer Kim Henkel. Horror fans will recognize Henkel's name from the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). Henkel is still churning out cannibal films, but the Butcher Boys is tainted meat. Shot on a sparse budget, the Butcher Boys is full of cat and mouse chase sequences and not much more. Instead, the film seems to spin its wheels in the second and third acts. The story begins with four twentysomethings. You will hardly figure out their names before these two couples are being chased by a group of thugs, straight out of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. Several minutes are spent with chase sequences, »

Francis Ford Coppola—director of The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, and The Outsiders—is a big fan of Trapped In The Closet. That’s what Phoenix’s Thomas Mars says, anyway. Mars, who's married to Sofia Coppola and whose band recently released a remix with R. Kelly, told Pitchfork all about the time he showed his father-in-law Kelly’s magnum opus. Quoth Mars, “I remember him sitting there in silence for 10 minutes and then saying, ‘This is incredible.’” All this came after Mars described watching Trapped on French TV as the “best TV experience of [his] life,” saying he »
Origin Releasing is proud to announce the principal cast for their in-production feature film, Bigfoot Wars!
The film – based on the series of best-selling books “Bigfoot War” by Eric S Brown, tells the story of a small town that becomes the focal point of a brutal clash between man and a legendary beast.
Tom Cruise made a surprise commencement speech at a Malibu acting school over the weekend.
Cruise regaled students with stories from his early career, including his decision to shave his head without the director's permission while shooting Taps.
One student in attendance also revealed that Cruise spoke about treating their co-stars and crew with respect if they ever work on a movie.
"[Tom] said that when you do finally get the chance of being in a movie, don't spend your time in the trailer," The Sun quotes a student as saying.
"[Tom] said you need to experience everything on the movie; talk to everyone on the crew - the grips, everyone. Learn everything you can. You will never get that time back.
"He talked about trying to be as prepared as possible, »
Before Robert Downey Jr. ever donned the Iron Man suit or Rob Lowe came to Pawnee on Parks and Recreation, they were chasing babes and getting into trouble as members of the Brat Pack.

The first trailer for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's animated DC comics film Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is now available for you to watch. The story is based on Geoff Johns' graphic novel Flashpoint, and the story centers on the Flash who wakes up devoid of his super powers. It looks like it could be a decent movie. I'm sure we'll get a chance to check it out at Comic-Con this year.
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline. »

Emilio Estevez turns the big 5-0 today! Remember when he was Andrew Clark, the high school jock in "The Breakfast Club"?The actor has had an extremely successful career since his days in the '80s running with Hollywood's "Brat Pack" alongside stars like Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall. Estevez quickly rose to fame in the '80s, landing leading roles in flicks like "The Outsiders," "St. Elmo's Fire" and "Young Guns." But, Emilio probably became the most well-known in the early '90s starring as Gordon Bombay in the "Mighty Ducks" flicks. Nevertheless, the actor has continued to steal the small and big screen -- recently appearing on "Two and Half Men," "The Way" and "Abominable Christmas." Has the rest of the "Brat Pack" fared as well? Click "Launch Gallery" above to see your favorite '80s gang then & now! »

In 1983, Francis Ford Coppola had plenty of greatness under his belt from The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather: Part II and Apocalypse Now, but some may say 1982's One from the Heart was the beginning of the end... at least the end of the Coppola we came to know in the '70s. Sure, The Godfather: Part III saw seven Oscar nominations, but ask anyone and they're sure to point it out as the weakest of the trilogy by a mile. Films such as Peggy Sue Got Married, Dracula and even The Rainmaker aren't half-bad and I'll happily admit to loving 90% of Tetro, but the Coppola star doesn't shine as it once did. Such a situation can result in films being forgotten, overlooked and never revisited again. The lack of appreciation for the last 30 years of Coppola's directorial career has allowed me to easily avoid -- wrongly or not -- »

This is the comic book event that either propelled DC Comics towards the New 52 paradigm or sent the company spinning off the rails, alienating the very core audience they sought to retain. Now it is being adapted into animated form from Warner Home Entertainment in July. Some speculate this direct-to-video movie will transition the animated heroes towards New 52 incarnations but that has not been confirmed. Here’s the release: Burbank, CA (April 17, 2013) – The world is turned upside down as one of earth’s greatest super heroes – Flash – wakes up devoid of his super powers in the all-new Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox – the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Original Animated Movies.
