Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Freshman (1925)

Harold Lloyd gets kittenish in The Freshman.

Harold Lloyd’s (Safety Last!) biggest box-office hit was the 1925 silent comedy classic The Freshman, featuring the befuddled everyman at his eager best as a new college student.

Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman’s careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle—and impress the sweet girl he loves—in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed.

The popular, crowd-pleasing movie directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm, and it’s accompanied here by a new orchestral score by Carl Davis (Napoleon).

‘Gimme Shelter,’ ‘Spring Breakers,’ and Vanessa Hudgens’ Gritty Post-’High School Musical’ Career

26 November 2013 10:15 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It is entirely possible, wholly feasible, and ridiculously strange that chubby-cheeked tweens who first became aware of Vanessa Hudgens thanks to the wholesome charms of the High School Musical franchise are now able to catch her burning up the big screen in any one of her numerous wannabe-gritty new roles. Children (children! Actual children!) that first saw her dancing across their television screens as a fresh-faced Disney high schooler can now purchase tickets to see her going gritty in a big way at their local multiplex. (This, of course, assumes that your local multiplex is playing Harmony Korine films, which does sound sort of cool.) The first High School Musical hit the small screen back in 2006, a Disney Channel production filled with new talents (Zac Efron), poppy songs, and a saccarhine love story. Hudgens starred as new girl in school Gabriella Montez, a smarty pants sweetheart who had spent her entire childhood moving around and was thrilled »

5 Iron Man Armors We’d Love To See On Film

5 September 2013 1:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios made quite the splash in 2008 with the release of Iron Man, a second-tier character in their catalog that has, in the last five years, become one of the most popular superheroes on the planet. The film successfully launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is currently the Big Man on Campus of the superhero film genre. Whether you’re a Marvel fan or not, they’re here to stay and that arguably wouldn’t be possible without the success of Iron Man.

We’ve seen Tony Stark suit up four times now on the big screen, in three solo films and alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes last summer in The Avengers. One of the most distinctive, and coolest things, about Iron Man is of course his armor. We’ve seen 42 models of the armor on screen. The Marks I, II, III, and IV in Iron Man, Marks IV, V »

The Spectacular Now – The Review

23 August 2013 12:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Well Summer’s almost over and the more serious film fare is starting to arrive at the cinemas. But it’s not quite time to give the theatres completely over to adult fare. As a matter of fact, adulthood is one of the subjects tackled in this new film. To be more specific, it concerns high school, or more specifically the end of high school, often referred to as “entering the real world”. One young man’s journey there is at the heart of this film, so I guess it could be part of the “coming of age” genre. We’re seen that with last year’s terrific The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and the very recent The Way Way Back. But at the start of those two films, the protagonists are shy, awkward, outcasts while the main focus of this new film is the opposite. In earlier years »

Kate Mara, Aaron Paul To Headline Emmy Nominations Announcement

27 June 2013 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kate Mara and Aaron Paul will present the 2013 Emmy Award nominations with Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman-ceo Bruce Rosenblum on July 18.

Mara (“House of Cards”) and Paul (“Breaking Bad”) will begin the announcement at the traditionally ungodly hour of 5:40 a.m. My thoughts on these archaic pre-dawn announcements are well established.

Here’s what I wrote about the Oscars last year; it’s relevant to the Emmys as well:

… For all its efforts to find the perfect date for its nominations and assert its supremacy in the awards universe, AMPAS is strangely slavish to the early morning hour, a relic of an era in which news was not effectively transmitted nationally between the signoff of “The Today Show” and the nightly greeting from Dan Rather, an era when the Internet didn’t exist and hours were needed to generate the most effective stories for print.

5 Scenes We Love From ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’

9 June 2013 1:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

While it might not be the definitive high school comedy (that’s a discussion for another time), 1998′s Can’t Hardly Wait is a damn good one, and a strangely enduring new classic. Sure, the nineties-set production is dipped in era-appropriate fashion, slang, and cultural nods (X-Files, anyone?) and its cast is positively peppered by awesomely nineties talents (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ethan Embry, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, the list goes on and on, but Can’t Hardly Wait still feels applicable to teens today. Or, at the very least, it still feels like a very good approximation of the high school experience that we remember. The film turns a staggering fifteen years old this week (it was released on June 12, 1998), and in appreciation of the film that gave us a stoned Jason Segel as “Watermelon Guy,” reaffirmed the cultural relevance of Barry Manilow, and saw the wonderful Lauren Ambrose get hit in the face with a »

'Arrested Development': Dr. Tobias Fünke's Homoerotic Sizzle Reel (Video)

15 May 2013 9:38 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Dr. Tobias Fünke has a provocative message to film and TV directors looking to cast a cowboy, a leather fetishist or a Big Man on Campus. "Insert me anywhere," the sexually confused-former-psychiatrist-turned-aspiring-actor says in a new internet sizzle reel. The homoerotic message is part of a viral marketing campaign designed to drum up excitement for the Netflix premiere of 15 new episodes of the cult favorite this month. The streaming service also set up a Bluth Banana Stand on the streets of New York City this week. Also read: Bluth's Original Frozen-Banana Stand »
