The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80's!

28 November 2012 8:44 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Back at the beginning of July in the daily Briefs, I started the Official snicks Top 100 Lost Hits of The 80's, spotlighting the 100 greatest minor hits of that decade. The songs you don't hear on any 80's nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty ... or top forty, and over the last five months I hope some of these forgotten gems may have rung a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provided a pop music history lesson.

Here is the complete list, including my favorite lost song of the decade. Thank you for taking this 80's road trip with me ... but it's not over yet! I'll be featuring a new Lost Hit once a week in the Wednesday Briefs, so the history lesson will continue!

Let the countdown commence, and remember ... keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars!

Grindhouse Aficionado: Issue #5 (July.07) by Kevin Klemm

Grindhouse Aficionado

Bringing you the best of Grindhouse cinema (without the sticky floors).

This month, a summer movie guide- Grindhouse style!

I know, I know. I’ve been a slacker lately about getting out the Grindhouse Aficionado columns. Between Girls and Corpses Magazine (we are now an honest to God print mag), and various other projects I’m working on, Grindhouse Aficionado had been pushed to the back burner. But no more! I am back from hiatus, and it’s time to give you some DVD suggestions to help you get through the dog days of summer.

West Coast, East Coast, and every where in between, it’s been a fucking hot summer already! Here in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley, it’s been over 100 degrees for 10 straight days. Normally we don’t see that kind of temps until August. Whether it’s global warming or what, »

Viennale 2012. American Genres

6 November 2012 7:33 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I got to experience an unexpected spectrum of American genre cinema here at the Viennale by yet again ignoring the new in favor of the old. Watching in a continuum Fritz Lang's Man Hunt (1941), in the Film Museum's retrospective, John Ford's Donovan's Reef (1963), programmed in the Viennale “for Jean-Marie Straub,” John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), shown in the retrospective sidebar “They Wanted to See Something Different” curated by Jörg Buttgereit, and Tony Scott's Unstoppable (2010) gave me an ellipticalt glimpse of the movement and address of a certain strain of popular American cinema from the middle of the 20th century to the present.

It would be foolish to take Man Hunt as a sort of pure example of Hollywood's industrial genre making of its time, unself-conscious; after all, Ford's own Stagecoach came two years earlier, electrically alive with awareness of the conventions of nearly forty years of the Western in cinema. »

Maximum Conviction

Stars: Steven Seagal, Steve Austin, Bren Foster, Steph Song, Aliyah O’Brien, Michael Pare | Written by Richard Beattie | Directed by Keoni Waxman

Yes, you read that cast list right, two of the biggest straight to DVD action stars, ex-cniematic hard man Steven Seagal and former WWE wrestler ”Stone Cold”  Steve Austin have teamed up under the auspices of director Keoni Waxman, who previously directed Austin in the better than average Hunt to Kill and eight episodes of Seagal’s TV series True Justice, for a film that sees the duo star as former black ops turned partners Steele (Seagal) and Manning (Austin) who are assigned to decommission an old prison and oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners… However before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Steele realizes he »

Movie Review - Road to Hell (2008)

26 October 2012 8:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Road to Hell, 2008.

Directed by Albert Pyun.

Starring Michael Michael Paré, Clare Kramer, Courtney Peldon, Roxy Gunn, Chris Reject, Ryan Hamman, Jon Mills and Paige Billiot.

Synopsis:

Albert Pyun's ode to Walter Hill's Streets on Fire explores its hero's dark journey through hell as he seeks the only thing that still matters to him: his only daughter.

Albert Pyun’s Road to Hell is the kind of demented film only a very specific audience will be able to appreciate. For anyone who is familiar with the filmography of Mr. Pyun, a wide array of feelings and emotions will ensue and come to a boil when his films The Sword and the Sorcerer, Radioactive Dreams, Cyborg, or Captain America are brought up in conversation. Many people vehemently abhor his style of filmmaking, and others – like myself – consider him a true artist, despite that his canvas has gotten smaller and »

Global Showbiz Briefs: Walter Hill To Be Honored In Rome, SeaWorld Sets Animated Series, Fcce Launches Intl Sales Division

5 October 2012 11:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Walter Hill Honored In Rome Walter Hill will receive the Maverick Director Award at the Rome Film Festival in November. Hill’s latest film, Bullet To The Head, will world premiere at the fest with star Sylvester Stallone in attendance. The new Maverick prize is designed to honor filmmakers who have broken ground in cinema and “consistently stand out from the crowd,” the festival says. Hill’s credits as director include The Warriors, 48 Hrs. and Streets Of Fire. He also produced Prometheus, Alien and wrote the scripts for John Huston’s The Mackintosh Man and Sam Peckinpah’s The Getaway. SeaWorld Developing New Animated Series SeaWorld’s fledgling production arm is working with former Marvel Animation president Eric Rollman on a new project.

Walter Hill To Be Honored with First-Ever Maverick Director Award at Rome Film Festival

5 October 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Following the recent news that Walter Hill will be remaking Robert Aldrich's classic camp, Crawford vs. Davis faceoff "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?," the Rome Film Festival (November 9-17) will honor the director with the new Maverick Director Award. The award is given to master filmmakers who have "consistently stood out from the crowd." Hill is best known for directing cult films such as "The Warriors," "48 Hrs." and "Streets of Fire," producing the first three "Alien" films, and helming scripts for brilliant genre directors John Huston ("The Mackintosh Man") and Sam Peckinpah (Steve McQueen's "The Getaway"). Hill's latest film, "Bullet to the Head," which admittedly looks to be a, er, lesser installment in both his and star Sylvester Stallone's bodies of work, will have its international premiere at the Rome fest following Hill's award ceremony.

Walter Hill Remake Of 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane' Moves One Unnecessary Step Further As Film Finds Financing

28 September 2012 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If the name Walter Hill conjures up at a moment's notice the thrills of “The Driver,” “Streets of Fire,” or “The Warriors,” then it's probably least damaging for your memories to witness the director's work today. After a break from doing TV work on “Deadwood” and the mini-series “Broken Trail,” he came roaring back with the Sly Stallone actioner “Bullet to the Head,” whose trailer promises something only vaguely resembling a coherent film. And now, after hints toward him remaking a demented classic occurred recently, it appears the film has now found the  means to become a reality. After Hill revealed during San Diego Comic-Con plans to direct a remake of the Bette Davis/Joan Crawford classic, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?,” warning signs immediately went up. They only intensified when the director puzzlingly promised to keep the film “period-based, but more contemporary »

‘Bullet To the Head’ Trailer Reveals Stallone Loves the 80s and 90s But Doesn’t Love Thomas Jane

17 August 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Sylvester Stallone hits the big screen this weekend with the sequel to his modest 2010 hit, The Expendables, but he’s not resting on those highfalutin laurels. The trailer has just dropped for his next movie, Bullet To the Head, and it looks as lazy as Stallone speaks. The film is Walter Hill‘s return to theaters after a ten year absence and follows a hit man (Stallone) and a cop (Sung Kang) who join forces to take down the barbarian (Jason Momoa) responsible for killing their respective partners. The goal appears to have been to make a far less funny 48 Hours, and they just may have succeeded. So yeah, they aimed for Another 48 Hours. Check out the trailer below, and weep at its lack of ambition. Could this have been made in the 90s? Yes. Is that a compliment? No. It’s possible this just looks more underwhelming than it is because it follows the hugely enjoyable »

Walter Hill Set to Remake ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?’ Because He Feels the Question Has Yet to be Answered Adequately

13 July 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Whatever happened to Walter Hill? He’s never really stopped working, but it’s fair to say Hill’s heyday was the 1980s and that it’s been a low profile ride downhill ever since. The man behind The Warriors, Southern Comfort, 48 Hrs, Streets of Fire, Brewster’s Millions and Red Heat began to slow down into the 90s as his particular brand of straight-forward, hype-free films lost cachet with audiences. Most folks probably can’t name many of his movies after 1990 aside from Trespass and Last Man Standing (granted, he only made four others), but it looks like he may be headed towards a resurgence of sorts. Next year will see the release of Bullet to the Head starring Sylvester Stallone, Thomas “Not Ethnic Enough” Jane and Sung Kang as a cop and a hitman who join forces against a common enemy, and the director is already lining up his next project.

Remake of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Coming from Writer/Director Walter Hill

11 July 2012 4:09 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I don't know how many of you have seen the original Bette Davis/Joan Crawford tour de force Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, but it about scarred me for life the first time I watched it. Here's hoping the planned remake announced today can do it justice!

According to Deadline, Walter Hill (pictured; The Warriors, Streets of Fire, "Tales from the Crypt") has partnered with The Aldrich Company to develop a remake of the 1962 classic. Hill will write the script and direct the film. The original was directed and produced by Robert Aldrich, with Lukas Heller adapting the Henry Farrell novel.

The story is set in a decaying Hollywood mansion where Jane Hudson (Davis), a former child star, and her sister, Blanche (Crawford), a movie queen forced into retirement after a crippling accident, live in virtual isolation. “The two equal leads demand great performers — that is a given, Hill said. »
