Page was presented the $10,000 award, designed to .honour an individual to whom both screen audiences and the industry owe a significant debt., by George Miller. The director first worked with Page on the original Mad Max, as well as Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
.Working, under fierce and extraordinary circumstances, on the first Mad Max,.I came to know the calibre of Grant Page. A masterful and innovative stuntman, he has a deep and elegant intelligence. He taught me a lot about filmmaking but even more about life. Inspirations which have sustained me ever since. Grant is heroic in every sense of the word,. said Miller.

Once a blockbuster staple, the power ballad was the ultimate movie accompaniment. We look back at some of the classics...
For a glorious period from the mid-80s throughout the 90s, the biggest summer blockbusters were only worth their salt if they had an equally gargantuan song at the head their soundtrack. Often the success of one was inexorably linked to the other, with the likes of Four Weddings And A Funeral's feats matched and even exceeded by Wet Wet Wet's accompanying Love Is All Around.
The greatest and most successful songs belong to the power ballad genre, and are as emotionally charged and forceful as the gods of epic balladry such as Journey, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Meat Loaf. As the 90s became the 00s and the charts became increasingly irrelevant, the movie ballad became almost defunct, with even the song-dominant film soundtrack being »
This version will be hitting stores in time for Christmas, and Yahoo! have today delivered a neat little clip showing what we can expect.
Take a look at this:
“Blood and Chrome Edition…will be available Dec. 6 in a two-disc set with the original theatrical release ($30) and also as part of the Mad Max High-Octane Collection ($55 for DVD; $80 for Blu-ray).

Do you wish to ride eternal shiny and chrome? Well, here’s your chance. George Miller’s dynamic blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road is finally getting its long-rumored black-and-white edition, swaddled inside a swanky new quadrilogy bundle (or available as a two-film collection). However, if you’re a lucky Los Angeles resident, you’ll be able to see it on the big screen.
The monochrome edition, which Miller himself has deemed “the best version” of Fury Road, will have its theatrical premiere at SpectreFest 2016 in Los Angeles on Monday 11/1 at 7:30pm. Taking place at The Cinefamily, tickets have already gone on sale, and we assume they’ll go quite fast.
For those outside of the Los Angeles area, the set is slated for a December 6th release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, befittingly titled the High-Octane Collection. It will feature all four Mad Max films (including Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, »

The Black & Chrome Edition will also be included as a bonus feature on the new box set release Mad Max High Octane Collection, which includes Fury Road alongside the three original Mel Gibson films, Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
Miller has previously spoken about discovering the black and white version of the movie, which he described as “the best version”, stating that: “[It was] what we called a ‘slash dupe’: a cheap, black-and-white version of the movie for the composer. Something about it seemed more authentic and elemental. »

Long-gestating followups include blockbusters like “Jurassic World” and famous flops like “Blues Brothers 2000” George Miller took nearly 30 years to follow up “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” with the Tom Hardy-Charlize Theron thriller “Mad Max: Fury Road.” “The Odd Couple II” is among the sequels with the biggest gaps between films. Twenty-nine years after the 1968 original, Jack Lemmon returned as Felix Unger and Walter Matthau was Oscar Madison in their last film together. “Tron: Legacy” came 28 years after the original, and featured Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. Shot in 3D, the film featured extensive visual effects and a score by. »

You can probably name a bunch of great sequels off the top of your head right now – but how many of those are threequels? By that point in a franchise, the concept can become stale and the characters tired. We all know that there are countless examples of bad threequels capping trilogies that were up to that point highly-regarded: The Godfather Part III, Terminator: Rise of the Machines, Spider-Man 3, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, X-Men: The Last Stand, the list goes on and on.

Not all movie threequels are so disappointing, however. Occasionally, a movie series’ third outing makes a great film in its own right. Star Trek Beyond – if we’re to think of 2009’s Star Trek as the beginning of a new series – is one such improbably solid second sequel to prove the curse of the threequel doesn’t extend to all franchises. »

I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

(l-r):.Kevin Bishop,.Xavier Samuel and.Kris Marshall.in A Few Less Men.
A Few Less Men, the sequel to Stephan Elliott's 2011 comedy A Few Best Men, was helmed by Mark Lamprell, the screenwriter of Babe: Pig in the City and director of 2000's My Mother Frank and 2013's Goddess.
"It was lovely working on somebody else's screenplay because it was a really solid screenplay structurally," Lamprell said. "I could see that there was a really good movie in there. Dean's a very accomplished writer. The whole guts of it were laid out before me.".
"It's not high-brow wit. »

By now, most of us know the story of Mad Max director George Miller and his never-realized Justice League project. But did you know there was another famous film he almost went on to direct for Warner Bros.? Some of us may never get over what Justice League: Mortal could have been. Perhaps the pain will be less acute over this new information, considering the final product was a relatively well-received movie. Miller (along with Roland Joffé) were at one point set to direct Contact. Ultimately directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump), 1997's Contact starred Jodie Foster as Dr. Eleanor Arroway, a Seti scientist whose long search for alien life leads to actual discovery and more doubt than she's every experienced in life. It also starred Matthew McConaughey, Tom Skerritt, James Woods, John Hurt, and Angela Bassett. The film changed a bit from Carl Sagan »

His second novel, A Lovers' Guide to Rome, has just been published by Allen and Unwin. As if that wasn't enough, his next film, A Few Less Men, will be released later in the year..
"I was at Kennedy Miller for years", Lamprell said..
"I did a documentary series called Sports Crazy, a ten hour series, in 1987. Before that, every time they did a miniseries, I did a 'making of' one-hour special."
That led to Lamprell being enlisted by Miller as a writer on various projects, including one very large science-fiction adaptation.
"I'd gotten to be a funny little fixture there at Kennedy Miller, and »

“If I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die historic on the Fury Road!”
Mad Max Fury Road, the best movie of the 21st century so far, screens midnights this weekend (April 22nd and 23rd) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.
Thirty years after writer/director George Miller led us all to believe his Mad Max franchise had run out of gas with Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, he resurrected the Road Warrior with a larger budget, a bigger crew, and more vehicles to destroy. Well worth the wait, Mad Max Fury Road, released last May, was pure dynamite, with enough wit and ingenuity to put all recent action films to shame. It richly deserved the six Oscars that it won and should have won the other four it was nominated for (especially Best Picture – Spotlight?!?!?!…..puh…leeeez!)
Not a sequel nor prequel nor reboot, »
