Wild, Dangerous, Imperfect, Wounded Grandeur: 18 Double Features About America

2 July 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The United States is “my country, right or wrong,” of course, and I consider myself a patriotic person, but I’ve never felt that patriotism meant blind fealty to the idea of America’s rightful dominance over global politics or culture, and certainly not to its alleged preferred status on God’s short list of favored nations, or that allegiance to said country was a license to justify or rationalize every instance of misguided, foolish, narrow-minded domestic or foreign policy.

In 2012, when this piece was first posted, it seemed like a good moment to throw the country’s history and contradictions into some sort of quick relief, and the most expedient way of doing that for me was to look at the way the United States (and the philosophies at its core) were reflected in the movies, and not just the ones which approached the country head-on as a subject. »

Austin-based Alamo Drafthouse, which has gone from one theater to 28 locations since 1997, is unveiling a series of commemorative events to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Variety has learned exclusively.

Richard Linklater’s ‘Last Flag Flying’ to Open New York Film Festival

12 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying” has been tapped as the opening night film of this year’s New York Film Festival.

The movie is a sequel of sorts to 1973’s “The Last Detail,” a profane drama about a group of Navy officers that scored Oscar nominations for Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid. Linklater’s film has an entirely new cast. It stars Steve Carell as Doc, a soft-spoken vet whose only child has been killed in the early days of the Iraqi invasion. Bryan Cranston plays Sal, the volatile part that Nicholson made famous, with Laurence Fishburne as another vet named Mueller. Together the friends go on a road trip up the Eastern Seaboard.

Last Flag Flying” will have its world premiere on Thursday, September 28. The film will open theatrically on November 17, 2017 from Amazon Studios. Past opening night films include hits such as “Gone Girl,” “Life of Pi,” and “The Social Network, »

Playback: Trey Edward Shults on ‘It Comes at Night’ and How Less Is More

1 June 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Switching gears from the blockbuster/tent-pole fare this week we have “It Comes at Night” director Trey Edward Shults on the show. The 28-year-old filmmaker made a huge splash in 2016 with his debut feature, “Krisha” — a festival hit that brought him plenty of first-time filmmaker awards love — and he’s back this summer with a tightly-wound thriller that seeps right into your bones.

But “thriller” isn’t the best word. Don’t mistake this for anything looking for an easy reaction. Shults is patient with the genre elements of his film, and that’s an on-going lesson he’s learning as he develops his voice.

Listen to this week’s episode of “Playback” below. New episodes air every Thursday.

‘Pitching Tents’ Review

Stars: Booboo Stewart, Jonathan Lipnicki, Richard Riehle, Jim Norton, Michael Grant, Eric Allan Kramer | Written by Rob A. Fox, Jayme Petrille | Directed by Jacob Cooney

If you have ever taken the time to listen to our podcast you will have figured out that I am a big fan of Kevin Smith, John Hughes, Cameron Crowe-style, dialogue heavy story driven movies. Throw one of those coming of age end of summer type movies and I’ll eat them up like a bowl of Shreddies (other cereals are available I just happen to be eating a bowl as I write this).

Pitching Tents is exactly this type of movie. Its 1984 its the end of the school year and Danny (Micheal Grant) has very little clue what he is going to do with his life past high school. Before he has to really worry about any of that he is having one »

A Brief History of the ‘Hangout’ Film

20 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

More than a sub-genre; a way of life.

Filmmakers have worked within recognizable genres for nearly as long as they’ve told stories. Initially film appropriated genres from literature and theatre, but as the new medium found its footing in Hollywood’s Classical Era of the 40s and 50s, a distinctly cinematic set of generic conventions were codified. Since that time, genres have come in and out favor, but most new films have still defined themselves either in accordance with or opposition to the Classical Hollywood models. Even innovative filmmakers like Jean-Luc Godard and David Lynch have self-consciously manipulated the language of genre, treating it like another tool in the director’s toolkit. But films are living things, and there are as many ways to draw the lines of categorization as there are films. Reevaluating movies of the past according to new and different models is one of the best ways to keep the medium from ossifying »

Nightworld Trailer Has Robert Englund Fighting Scary Supernatural Forces

17 April 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Robert Englund is a living legend known for portraying Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. While he'll likely never return to that role, he hasn't given up his passion for acting. And in the horror world, a new Robert Englund movie is a cause for celebration, even if it's a low budget schlock fest that goes straight to VOD. The later half of that sentence may be true for his latest terrifying outing, a dark thriller called Nightworld. But it actually looks like a scary movie that will have horror fans excited all over again.

Robert Englund stars in Nightworld, which has the iconic actor fighting off a malevolent force while coming face to face with a very dark afterworld. Bloody Disgusting debuted the first trailer, which you can see below. They also have the first poster, which features an eery looking Englund who wears dark shades »

Anyone Else Think Matthew McConaughey’s Never Looked the Same Since Dallas Buyers Club?

17 April 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In my opinion there are two Matthew McConaughey’s. There’s pre-Oscar McConaughey and post-Oscar McConaughey. The pre-Oscar Matthew is the “hot” Matthew McConaughey. It’s the guy who was in romantic comedies. It’s the guy who was in A Time To Kill. It’s Dazed and Confused “Alright Alright Alright” McConaughey. It’s basically the guy that every other guy wanted to be. The “peak condition” Matthew McConaughey we all came to know and love is the guy you see in the picture below. Now, just to prove I’m right I’m going to point you to a movie where McConaughey should have been back

The violin's story by Anne-Katrin Titze

Tinker Bell fan Brianna Perez meets Joseph Feingold in Joe's Violin

In my conversation at Radical Media with Kahane Cooperman, director of this year's Oscar-nominated Joe's Violin, she explained how Doc NYC Executive Director Raphaela Neihausen, Richard Linklater and Dazed And Confused, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, and Letters From Baghdad co-director Zeva Oelbaum supported bringing to the screen the moving story of Holocaust survivor Joseph Feingold and young musician Brianna Perez from the Bronx Global Learning Institute for Girls.

On being with Joseph Feingold: "I learned in that hour that the violin had a poignant story attached to it and also that he was a capable storyteller."

When an object changes hands, commonly its story dies. We might speculate about the previous owner of a piece of vintage jewelry that catches our eye, or wonder who sat in an antique chair 100 years ago. Joe's Violin was born »

New to Streaming: ‘Silence,’ ‘Elle,’ ’20th Century Women,’ and More

17 March 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented. »
