This Back To School oral history reveals how decent Rodney Dangerfield could be

6 hours ago | | See recent The AV Club news »

Also in today's Horror Highlights is another contest from our friends at Comet TV, initial details on the Windy City Horrorama, release info for Bad Exorcists, and the short horror film Lost Soul.

Toronto 2017: Docs, Shorts And Midnight Madness Programs Announced

1 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

We are at the halfway mark of summer here in Toronto and two things are already happening. Stores are loading up on Back to School supplies (I've seen young children crumple in tears at the foot of such displays) and the Toronto International Film Festival starts announcing lineups (only tears of joy for this one). Today the festival announced the Documentary, Short Cuts and Midnight Madness lineups. Screen Daily got the jump on the news.   Of personal interest is the Midnight Madness lineup. What am I willing to stay up all hours of the night for? A few weeks ago, in a brief chat with the new Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky, once a writer in our fold, he was not giving up any...

Sammo Hung And The Lucky Star Gang Set To Return

13 March 2017 5:22 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Legendary Actor and Film-Maker Sammo Hung is back with a bang, teaming up with Kickboxer Actor Dennis Chan to form a new film company “Sammo Hung films“. This is very exciting news with many Projects already being planned such as To Catch a Killer, Back to School, Operation: Ground Zero, Silk Road, I-Ching Warriors, The Detrimental Protectors and the big one The Return of Lucky Stars.


The Return of Lucky Stars will bring together the old “Lucky Stars Gang”, reuniting Sammo Hung with Richard Ng, Eric Tsang and John Sham. I’m a very big fan of the Lucky Star Movies from the hard hitting Wheels On Meals to the Hilarious Winners And Sinners, i am sure The Return of Lucky Stars will be another hit for the gang. I am more confident now, we could get the Three Dragons back together for one last time, Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao. »

Review: "Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back" Wreaks Havoc in Heaven

8 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Hot off the success of last year’s box office record-setting smash The Mermaid, Stephen Chow brought us a sequel this Lunar New Year to his 2013 film Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. While it set an opening day record in China, and was initially released in North America on roughly twice as many screens, it has thus far failed to match The Mermaid’s financial success. I have no idea why that is, anyone who claims to understand what makes the difference between a hit and a super-hit is a liar or a fool, but I can theorize that the film’s somewhat mixed critical response is a response to its weird hybrid nature. Not just in the ways Chow situates a sincere appreciation for religion within a goofy pop context, but in the film’s dual authorship between Chow, who co-wrote and produced, and Tsui Hark, who directed. »
