2010 Holiday Movie Guide - Screenings

21 October 2010 3:09 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Although the holiday season means time off work for most other industries in the U.S., it means it's awards season for the film business, which in turn necessitates plenty of tributes and accolades to be presented on the East and West Coasts at your local repertory theater in advance of the Oscars where movie stars can be seen and Q & As are conducted. Yet in New York and Los Angeles, there will be a wealth of other options as neighborhood theaters flood their screens with contemporary cinema from other parts of the world, classic movies in their full bigscreen glory, and certain-to-be-fun nods to the holidays, whether it's Halloween or Christmas. If you live in one of these areas or see fit to travel, these are the events worth the trouble over the next few months.

Melanie Griffith Joins The Grief Tourist

4 October 2010 4:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Melanie Griffith starring in The Grief Tourist Vision Entertainment Group, which recently announced its partnership with Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions to produce The Grief Tourist, has added Golden Globe-winning actress and Oscar nominee Melanie Griffith to its already impressive cast. Directed by Suri Krishnamma (A Man of No Importance and New Year's Day), The Grief Tourist is currently in production for a release next year.

The Grief Tourist centers on a disturbed and troubled man whose fascination with serial killers leads him and the audience on a horrific and menacing journey through his obsessive and twisted mind as he retraces their footsteps. Possibly best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Tess McGill in Working Girl, Griffith is one of America's most-recognizable actresses, thanks in part to iconic turns in Something Wild, Body Double, Born Yesterday, Crazy in Alabama and Cecil B. Demented. She is currently in production on Nick Cassavetes' drama Yellow, »

Brian De Palma to direct Venice-set thriller The Toyer

16 August 2010 8:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Veteran director Brian De Palma is set to return to the thriller genre with an adaptation of Gardner McKay’s novel The Toyer…

It's been some time since we saw a really decent thriller from Brian De Palma, the respected director of 80s and 90s classics such as Scarface, The Untouchables and Carlito's Way. His 2007 Iraq war movie Redacted was well received, but his adaptation of James Ellroy's The Black Dahlia was critically panned when it appeared in 2006, and it could be argued that his last really great big screen movie was 1996's Mission: Impossible.

Now, however, reports are surfacing that the veteran director is set to return to a project he was initially attached to six years ago, an adaptation of Gardner McKay's thriller, The Toyer. In it, the twisted antagonist of the title subjects his victims to psychological torture before sending them into a drug-induced coma. »

Free Flick of The Day: 'Cherry 2000'

3 May 2010 5:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Ok, I'm not going to lie to you: today's recommendation for Free Flick of the Day, Cherry 2000, isn't exactly what you would call a good movie. But before you scroll away, keep in mind, sometimes a bad movie can be as much fun as a good one -- and as bad movies go, Cherry 2000 is one of the best. The 1987 sci-fi action flick was directed by Steve De Jarnatt (director of the Canadian classic Strange Brew) and centers on a pampered businessman living in the distant future of (gasp!) 2017 who hires a sexy bad-ass tracker (played for some reason by Melanie Griffith) to help him find a replacement sex doll (sorry...sex robot, much better) after his top of the line 'Cherry 2000' shorts out in the laundry room. And yes, you read that entire plot right.

By 1987, Ms. Griffith had already landed some pretty respectable »

Saturday Nightmares: Body Double (1984)

6 February 2010 8:07 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It’s hard to imagine a world where Body Double is a Ken Widerhorn (Return of the Living Dead part II) film. Originally, Brian De Palma had intended to write and produce, but opted to get behind the camera when another of his projects fell through.

And it’s a good thing, too, since making 'Hitchcockian' thrillers has always been the director’s strong point. Sisters, Obsession, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out are examples of De Palma’s ability to tap into the Hitchcock verve while carving his own niche of twisted sexuality and brutal murder. Dismissing De Palma as little more than a Hitchcock knockoff has always been an unfair dismissal in my eyes, as crafting genuine suspense isn’t a talent every director is capable of. Hell, Van Sant recreated Psycho shot-for-shot and failed more miserably than any other director ever has.

With De Palma, even when »
