Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. The third film from Richard Linklater, and the second after Slacker put him on the the map, 1993's Dazed and Confused is typical of the director, presented as a slice of life of a group of mostly directionless characters as they go about their daily lives. But this coming of age comedy, with it's ensemble of, at the time, soon to be stars, and an undeniable love for the 1970's, became, pretty much instantly, one of Linklater's most accomplished work. Like most of the director's work, his home state of Texas is the setting, as the last day of school sees a disparate group of Austin high schoolers looking to celebrate. The plot is as directionless as the characters it follows. They are just looking for a good time, »

For the last 12 years, you could say that Richard Linklater has been just a little bit busy developing Boyhood, his triumph of a film concerning the growth and life of a boy from childhood through adolescence — in real time. And while that ate up a dozen actual years, Linklater didn’t put all his eggs in one basket. As with his Boyhood cast, he allowed himself to work on other projects and tinker with new ideas for future films. One such project is the long-awaited follow-up to his 1993 masterpiece Dazed and Confused. The Playlist reports that Linklater has begun casting this “spiritual sequel” (as Linklater has called it), which is titled That’s What I’m Talking About. He sent offers for three of the lead roles to the following up-and-coming young actors: Blake Jenner (Ryder from Glee — you know, the one that got catfished by another Glee club member), Tyler Hoechlin (the Teen Wolf from Teen Wolf »

“That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age!”
Dazed And Confused plays this weekend (August 19th and 20th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
I graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1979 and Dazed And Confused, which I saw at the Shady Oak Theater in Clayton 14 years later, is so spot-on it’s scary. Writer-Director Richard Linklater is one year older than me and his film debut was a nostalgic look back at the final day of school, when the soon-to-be-seniors get drunk and stoned waiting for their first year at the top of the food chain while the incoming freshmen get prepared for a year of getting picked on. A wide range of character drink, smoke pot and have fun talking about what life is about to offer them. I think »

Russell played Zook in comedy sequel 22 Jump Street.
Set in 1980, it will follow a college freshman who moves into a hard-partying baseball house at his college. »
Tyler Hoechlin ("Teen Wolf"), Blake Jenner ("Glee") and Wyatt Russell ("22 Jump Street") have reportedly been offered the leading roles in "Boyhood" director Richard Linklater's baseball-themed next film "That’s What I’m Talking About".
Set in 1980, the story follows a college freshman who moves into the baseball house at his college and experiences a fraternity like lifestyle with his hard partying teammates. Each of the trio has an offer to play one of the lead baseball players in the film which is said to have the same tone as Linklater's classic "Dazed and Confused". [Source: Deadline]

It'll be some time before any of us stop talking about Richard Linklater's latest film, Boyhood, but it looks like the director is ready to move on. Linklater has started casting for his next project, a baseball-themed film titled That's What I'm Talking About.
Word from Deadline is that Linklater has already offered the three lead roles to: Glee's Blake Jenner, Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin, and 22 Jump Street's Wyatt Russell. If cast, all three would play lead roles as baseball players.
The film is said to have the same (or similar) tone to Linklater's stoner classic Dazed And Confused. Set in 1980, That's What I'm Talking About follows a college freshmen who moves into the baseball house at his college and experiences a fraternity-like lifestyle with his hard partying teammates. (Hey, could this be a possible sequel to Boyhood? I kid, I kid – Mason would never join a frat. »

• Alec Baldwin and Danny Glover will lead the cast of Andron, a sci-fi/action film from writer/director Franceso Cinquemani. The movie follows a group of young men and women who wake up in a dark, claustrophobic maze and struggle to survive, while the rest of the world watches. Also entering the maze are Michelle Ryan (EastEnders), Skin (lead singer from the U.K. band Skunk Anansie), Jon Kortajarena (A Single Man), Gale Harold (Queer as Folk) and Leo Howard (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra). [THR]

Filmmaker Richard Linklater is indeed planning on next directing his “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused, a baseball-themed film called That’s What I’m Talking About. Linklater has been discussing making the college-set project for years now, and coming off the massive success of Boyhood (and after dropping out of The Incredible Mr. Limpet), it appears that the time has finally come. The filmmaker previously said the pic was hard to put together because he didn’t want to cast “stars” in the film—much like Dazed and Confused—and indeed, a report has surfaced that offers for three leads have gone out to Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street), Blake Jenner (Glee), and Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf). More after the jump. The story of That’s What I’m Talking About takes place in the 1980s and will revolve around freshmen as they navigate through the first year of college »

Exclusive: Fresh from his time lapse masterpiece Boyhood, Richard Linklater is casting for That’s What I’m Talking About, the baseball-themed film he’ll make next. I’m told he has offered the three leads to these actors: Glee’s Blake Jenner, Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin, and 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell. They’ve each got an offer to play one of the lead baseball players.
The film is said to be very much in tone similar to Linklater’s stoner classic Dazed And Confused, which launched a ton of talent that included future Oscar winners Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey. This one is set in 1980, and a college freshman moves into the baseball house at his college and experiences a fraternity like lifestyle with his hard partying teammates.

Ghost In The Shell plays this weekend (September 12th and 13th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.
Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost In The Shell (1995) is one of the ultimate nerd movies. It’s science fiction anime aimed at smart audiences, and one that raised the bar for Japanese animation. Its complex story is set in a society where being a full-flesh human is no longer the norm. Is humanity losing its existence or is it loosely defined? Cyborgs are part human, part machine, and a continuation of a previously “whole” human entity. Major Motoko Kusanagi, a full-replacement cyborg in the national security division Section 9, is investigating a mysterious hacker who goes by the name “The Puppet Master.” It may be apparent throughout the film that many of its aspects and ideas »

Milla Jovovich's glowing! The "Resident Evil" star debuted her growing baby bump on the red carpet for the premiere of her new flick, "Cumbeline," at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday. Milla looked stunning in her white mini, which perfectly showed off her tiny baby bump. The brunette beauty completed her look with black and white striped pumps and wore her hair in soft curls. This is the second child for the 38-year-old and her hubby Paul Anderson, who announced the big news two weeks ago via Facebook with a super sweet message. News: Milla Jovovich Reveals She's Pregnant & Baby Is Delaying Next "Resident Evil" Film!"This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town, South Africa to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby! »

The FBI and Apple are both investigating the leak of a a massive trove of nude actress photos that leaked online over the weekend. The photos — which included shots of Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kate Upton, and Kirsten Dunst — spread fast, despite a grassroots effort to discourage people from viewing them. See video: ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ First Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Is Dazed and Confused “The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told reporters on Monday. »

Purple Rain plays this weekend (September 5th and 6th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.
Purple Rain is pure ‘80s. Prince was at the top of his game in 1984, a musical genius who was bringing together everything from punk to funk to heavy metal in a singular fusion that pointed the way to a race-blind future. Everyone wanted to see this movie, which was not much more than an extended music video. The plot of Purple Rain is hackneyed and has a paper-thin screenplay, Something about Prince as a small-time nightclub star in Minnesota known as ‘The Kid’ who dreams of making it big, but there always seems to be something standing in his way. That’s about it. But the film was outstanding, wonderfully scored and was a huge hit. Prince’s Academy Award »

Another awesome line-up of midnight movies including one anime standard and some other cult nuggets make up the next wave of films at the Tivoli for their “Reel Late at the Tivoli” midnight program! It’s a great selection with the usual variety of standards and classics that draw the late night movie buff crowd.

Amazon keeps accelerating the pace and output of its "pilot season" process. The original batch of Amazon pilots were presented to the public in April of last year; of those, only "Alpha House" (which got renewed for a second season) and "Betas" (which remains in limbo) got picked up. The second batch of pilots were unveiled less than a year later, and Amazon ordered almost all of them — other than "Rebels," the pro football comedy that no one seemed to like — to series. That was in February, and while none of those new shows has debuted — "Transparent," the best of the bunch, will premiere all of its episodes, Netflix-style, on September 26 — Amazon yesterday unveiled its third pilot season, even as there's already news about casting for the fourth wave of Amazon pilots. At this rate, they may be ordering some shows before a word's even been written, and traveling back »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »
Not so long ago, reality TV promised us that anyone could be a famous singer,
or chef, or alligator wrestler, or Amish craftsman. Now it’s not enough to be onscreen talent: We want to be development execs, too.
We have that chance with Amazon presenting its third round of pilots, which can be found on Amazon Instant Video. Viewers can watch, rate, and review the five new shows, and their feedback will help the streaming site decide which pilots to pick up as original series. (Last time around it ordered six series, including Chris Carter’s The After and Jill Soloway’s Transparent. »

Though the 1980s was largely seen as the heyday of the teen movie genre (in large part thanks to the brilliant John Hughes), the 90s wasn’t exactly a slouchy period either. We’ve all seen the classics, the critically acclaimed likes of Scream, Dazed and Confused, Pleasantville, Election, Romeo + Juliet, Clueless and so on, but what about those movies that didn’t exactly light up a storm with critics, and proved much more divisive?
Nevertheless, these 10 movies have endured better with audiences, even if they still don’t have the esteem they deserve: these movies, if not always perfect, were brilliantly iconic, and also perfectly captured the hormone-infused anxiety of being a teenager in the 1990s. They’re distinctly different tonally and stylistically from those classic 80s movies, but that certainly doesn’t mean that they’re any worse. And if you’re wondering why there’s no American Pie on our list, »

The 2014 New York Film Festival will present a special screening of “This Is Spinal Tap” in celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary, with writer-star Christopher Guest on board to appear at the event.
The screening of influential mockumentary “Spinal Tap” — the latest in a string of Nyff anniversary fetes that has in previous years included “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “The Princess Bride” and “Dazed and Confused” — comes on the heels of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the org that presents Nyff, giving its annual Chaplin Award to Rob Reiner, the movie’s director (as well as the helmer of “Princess Bride”).
Prior Nyff anniversary screenings have attracted the attendance of multiple cast members and creatives from the projects being screened; only Guest has so far been confirmed for the Nyff event. Date of the screening remains to be announced
“Spinal Tap” joins a roster of Nyff special events that »
