Talk at the event was dominated by the looming introduction of the Finnish tax incentive; Beta boards The Unknown Soldier.

The works-in-progress jury at this year’s Finnish Film Affair (Sept 20-22) has split the $3,300 (€3000) Best Pitch prize between two films, Dome Karukoski’s Tom Of Finland, about the gay artist Touko Laaksonen, and documentary Post Punk Disorder, co-directors Jukka Kärkkäinen and J-p Passi’s sequel to their 2012 SXSW audience award winner The Punk Syndrome.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: A Timeline of Their Tempestuous Relationship

19 August 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After months of fighting, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp suddenly settled their divorce this week, with Heard donating all of the settlement money to charity.

Their relationship was a tabloid magazine’s dream: Hollywood A-lister falls in love with up-and-coming ingenue on set.

Here’s a look back at Johnny and Amber’s tempestuous relationship.

October 2009

Depp and Heard met on the set of “The Rum Diary” with Depp playing a journalist obsessed with Heard’s character — a woman engaged to another man.

June 2012 

Depp and Heard started dating after the actor split from his long-time partner, Vanessa Paradis.

Jan. 17, 2014

People Magazine reported the couple was engaged.

April 7, 2014

Depp showed off his engagement ring during an interview with Et, stating, »

Back Inside Innerspace, Joe Dante’s Fantastic Voyage

27 May 2016 7:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stop me if you’ve heard this idea for a movie: Dean Martin gets miniaturized and injected into the body of Jerry Lewis.

That’s the pitch for Joe Dante’s 1987 film Innerspace, his last collaboration with producer Steven Spielberg until making Small Soldiers for DreamWorks in 1998. Made between his contributions to the outrageous 1986 anthology comedy Amazon Women on the Moon and his darkly comic 1989 movie The ’Burbs, Innerspace could be considered Joe Dante’s most commercial film. Not only did it carry the Spielberg brand, it was also cast with big stars (Dennis Quaid, Martin Short, and Meg Ryan) and boasted impressive, state-of-the-art special effects and a high concept that was sure to bring people out to the theater. And yet, for some reason, the movie was something of a box office disappointment when it was released in the summer of 1987; though the film’s final budget is difficult to pin down, »

Christopher Lombardo & Jeff Kirschner Give Their Diagnosis of Healthcare Horror Movies

27 May 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies share their diagnosis of healthcare horror movies with Daily Dead readers.] When the Us was overhauling its healthcare system, much to-do was made about so-called “death panels,” government committees who would decide who lives and dies based on asset allocation. As far as healthcare horrors are concerned, it turns out that playing God is very real, but luckily only in film and Sarah Palin’s fright-filled imagination. Nefarious nurses, murderous docs, and psychopathic hallway stalkers in horror movies have effectively put end-of-life issues at the forefront, but not in a way that can be reasonably debated: your life, their ending of it.

We’ve decided to weigh in on the healthcare hullabaloo by looking at fictional settings that make One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest look like the height of patient-centered thinking. So sit back and self-medicate with whatever’s in the fridge (or better still, the medicine cabinet) and take these seven healthcare horrors—but don’t call us in the morning. »
