10 Best Comics of 2014

20 December 2014 9:18 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2014 was an incredibly rewarding year to be a comics reader. Veteran creators, like Grant Morrison, Kurt Busiek, and Matt Wagner continued to churn out some of the best work of their career while new creators, like Noelle Stevenson, Babs Tarr, and Tula Lotay had very strong starts. Marvel and DC published their fair share of events, including Original Sin, Multiversity, Spider-Verse, and seemingly a half-dozen Green Lantern crossovers, but they also took risks with new characters like Ms. Marvel, a mysterious female Thor, and the cast of Gotham Academy. Marvel and DC artists went far away from any semblance of a house style from the tapestry-like spreads of Elektra‘s Michael del Mundo, the Silver Age revivals of Silver Surfer‘s Mike Allred and She-Hulk‘s Javier Pulido, and the stylish character designs and Instagram-style layouts of Babs Tarr’s Batgirl among many others.

But Image Comics was the real »

El Rey Network Cancels Matador

30 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The original action drama series, Matador, which launched on El Rey Network in July, will not return for a second season. The show was created by Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and ended its 13 episode run in October. Despite initial high hopes for the drama – the pilot of which was directed by network founder Robert Rodriguez – low international sales apparently played a significant part in the network’s decision not to renew. In a statement regarding the cancellation, El Rey Network explained its choice.

“Ultimately, it was a business decision but to be clear, we were very proud of the series on every level – creatively it hit the mark and we are gratified that it celebrated diversity in front of the cameras and behind the scenes. We want to thank everyone involved, from the extraordinarily talented cast and crew to the amazing production team. We appreciate all that they have »

Jon Secada Says Don Johnson 'Owes Me Money' [Exclusive Video]

5 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Jon Secada, who writes about the hardships he faced breaking into the music industry in his book Secada: A New Day, reveals that Don Johnson still owes him an unpaid debt from decades ago.

Jon Secada Says Don Johnson Owes Him Money

Back in the 80s, before Secada went on to become a Grammy-winning singer and songwriter, he was a struggling artist. To make money on the side, he’d coach for an hourly rate. One of his clients in those early days was Miami Vice star Don Johnson.

"We got the call by somebody that was working with Don Johnson," Secada told uInterview exclusively. "He was doing a duet in Spanish. They needed someone to coach him though the song. He was doing the duet with a really well known Mexican singer. I got the job. I got the call. I did the job, and I helped him with the song. »

L.M. Kit Carson Is Dead: ‘Paris, Texas’ Writer, USA Film Fest Co-Founder

29 October 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

An iconoclast in the worlds of independent film and journalism who embodied — and celibrated — Texas individualism, Carson died October 20 in Dallas following a long battle with osteoporosis and other illnesses. He was 73.

A Dallas native whose career took him to Austin, Houston, New York, Los Angeles and many places far afield and in between, Lewis Minor Carson was best known as co-author with Sam Shepard of the Wim Wenders film Paris, Texas (Carson’s official credit was for “adaptation”), which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1984. Known universally as Kit, after his Texas Ranger grandfather, he is credited with helping create the”mockumentary” genre for writing and playing the title role in David Holtzman’s Diary, the Jim McBride film about a navel-gazer who decides to film every moment of his unmomentous life. The 1967 film anticipated such disparate touchstones as the film This Is Spinal Tap and the »

L.M. Kit Carson, Co-Writer of ‘Paris, Texas,’ Dies at 73

21 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Screenwriter and actor L.M. Kit Carson, who adapted Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas” and helped Wes Anderson launch his first film “Bottle Rocket,” died Monday after a long illness. He was 73.

Born in Irving, Texas, Carson co-founded the USA Film Festival in Dallas and was married to actress Karen Black, with whom he had a son, Hunter, who starred in “Paris, Texas.” He also wrote the screenplay for the 1983 remake of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless.”

While Anderson and “Bottle Rocket” star Owen Wilson were trying to get the 13-minute short made into a feature, Wilson remembered that it was Carson who gave them some of the most useful advice.

“Kit had the idea for us to try to go to Sundance and then eventually send it to (producer) Barbara Boyle, who sent it to (producers) Polly Platt and Jim Brooks,” said Wilson. With their help, Anderson got the greenlight from Columbia Pictures »

Although he s hailed as a small-town hero, Richard soon finds himself fearing for his family s safety when Freddy s ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard) rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richard s life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence that will pit him against the most unlikely of foes.

'The Equalizer' Interview with Director Antoine Fuqua | Exclusive

24 September 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Antoine Fuqua is a filmmaker I have always admired and respected, not only for his skill behind the camera, but for the diversity of projects he undertakes. After cutting his teeth by directing a number of iconic music videos in the 1990s, including Coolio's "Gangster's Paradise," Prince's "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," and Toni Braxton's "Another Sad Love Song," Antoine Fuqua transitioned into features with The Replacement Killers and Bait before his breakout hit Training Day, where he directed Denzel Washington to a Best Actor Oscar.

From there, he took on a number of vastly different films such as the war drama Tears of the Sun, the medieval epic King Arthur, the grounded action-packed adaptation Shooter (which I still think is vastly underrated), the urban crime drama Brooklyn's Finest and last year's big-budget action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen.

The filmmaker reunites with Denzel Washington in The Equalizer, a »

Liam Neeson on using his 'Taken' clout to get 'Walk Among The Tombstones' made

14 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Excalibur" was a formative theatrical experience for me. It was one of the first R-rated films I specifically decided I wanted to see in a theater. I'd seen other R-rated films before that, but always at random and because someone else decided I was going to see it. With "Excalibur," I was crazy to see it, and the film landed on me like a ton of bricks. Surreal, violent, beautiful, explicit, and for a mythology nut, seeing how the film dealt with each of the characters, each of the Arthurian archetypes, I was in love. One of the guys who made an impression in the film was a young Liam Neeson, and for the rest of the '80s, he racked up a number of performances where, good film or bad, he made an impression. How could he not? No one else looked like him. Slightly over eight feet tall, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Album review: Maroon 5's 'V' presents pristine pop

31 August 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Voice” has probably helped no one’s career as much as coach Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5. While they certainly weren’t dormant, the NBC talent reality show revived the band and brought them back to a level they hadn’t seen since their breakthrough, 2002’s “Songs About Jane.” Ever since 2011’s “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring fellow sometimes “Voice” coach Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5 has seldom been of a pop or AC chart. Just as Maroon 5 did on its last album, 2012’s “Overexposed,” for new set, “V,” the group also enlisted a phalanx of hit songwriters and producers —  Ryan Tedder, Shellback, Dr. Luke, Sia, Stargate, Benny Blanco— to come up with the poppiest of pop material. The result is a shiny, pristine album that sounds great, if a little anodyne and generic. Maroon 5’s self-penned earliest hits like “This Love” and “Harder To Breathe” were less well-crafted, »

Director Thomas Carter Discusses When The Game Stands Tall, Studio Interference, Deleted Scenes and Choreography

20 August 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Thomas Carter has a penchant for sports-related entertainment. As an actor, early in his career, he starred on the basketball-centric TV show The White Shadow. He segued from actor to director on the show for its final season – and since then he has directed a number of television programs from Hill Street Blues to Miami Vice. He returned to the high school basketball film-genre with the Samuel L Jackson headlining Coach Carter – and this Friday, he shifts sports to high-school football with the release of When The Game Stands Tall. In talking with Carter though, he is quick to point out that it isn’t necessarily sports that drew him to these films, but the choreography inherent in such activities (Carter also directed the dance-centric films Swing Kids and Save the Last Dance). In the following interview with Carter, the candid filmmaker discusses his love for choreography, the differences in shooting a basketball vs. »

Willie Nelson's 12 Most Memorable Acting Roles

Whether playing a vengeful preacher in Red Headed Stranger or a killer version of himself on USA's Monk, Willie Nelson is as at home in front of a camera as he is onstage. With a natural charisma and a drawling way with dialogue (his phrasing is as unique as the way he sings), Nelson has been casting bait for directors since Sydney Pollack first placed him opposite Robert Redford in 1979's The Electric Horseman. We count down a dozen of his most memorable roles, including his epic 1986 Miami Vice appearance and — run for the border! »

Benicio Del Toro: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

Remember Taneleer Tivan, The Collector? That David Bowie-looking guy who appeared at the end of Thor: The Dark World and made a similarly fleeting appearance in this week’s crazy sci-fi blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy? Well, beneath the eccentricities, the mincing and the hairpiece of the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was multiple award winning, Puerto Rican character actor Benicio del Toro, in his first big screen role since…well, we’ll get to that soon enough. It’s a bit of a funny turn for a man with an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a BAFTA Award to his name – for the same movie, no less – and it got us to thinking how he’d gotten here.

Mystery DVD Club: Truck Turner

30 July 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Aliya delves into Isaac Hayes's career and comes up with the not-quite-thriller, Truck Turner...

Welcome back to Mystery DVD Club. The idea behind this is simple: we went and bought a whole host of films that we hadn't heard of before, none of which cost us more than a few pounds. Then, we sent them to a bunch of our writers, without telling them what 'film' they were going to receive. Could we unearth a hidden gem? Aliya is hopeful...

When you start looking into the career of Isaac Hayes, you find out he was good at a lot of things. He co-wrote great hits such as Soul Man and When Something Is Wrong With My Baby. He produced a lot of brilliant records for Stax. He was a hugely successful singer, and reinterpreted a lot of Burt Bacharach classics into long soulful epics. He was the voice of Chef in South Park. »

Fantasia 2014: ‘Cold in July’ is one of the year’s finest

25 July 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cold in July

Directed by Jim Mickle

Written by Nick Damici

2014, USA

Fans of pulp fiction will get a kick out of Cold in July, a gritty – at times bloody – and darkly funny crime yarn directed by provocateur Jim Mickle (Mulberry Street, Stakeland). This rigid and enthralling Texas thriller is one the most hyperbolic and stylish crime yarns in years. Think Drive, but with a better cast – a better script – and a sense of humour as sharp as a knife.

Jim Mickle’s violent black comedy stars Michael C. Hall as Richard Dane, a suburban family man who has a small-town framing shop, a beautiful wife and son – and a gun hidden away in the house which he should have no business owning. The opening scene gets the plot moving fairly quickly as he confronts and then fatally shoots a burglar who’s broken into his home. The local sheriff »
