50th Chicago International Film Festival Review – Natural Born Killers (1994)

18 October 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Natural Born Killers, 1994.

Directed by Oliver Stone.

Starring Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Tom Sizemore, Robert Downey Jr, Tommy Lee Jones, and Rodney Dangerfield.

Synopsis:

Two victims of traumatized childhoods become lovers and psychopathic serial murderers irresponsibly glorified by the mass media.

Natural Born Killers was selected as a special presentation at the 51st Chicago International Film Festival as the movie celebrates its 20th birthday, but what made revisiting this classic bloodbath barrage of violence so fun is that the message director Oliver Stone wanted to get across still exists in our world today. Oliver actually introduced the film in person, and described the production as him sick and tired of the media, venting out his frustrations by “throwing up on-screen”. Truthfully, there probably isn’t a better assessment of Natural Born Killers.

It is chaotically frenetic to the point where sometimes it actually feels over-stylized. To this day it is »

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

14 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

50 Years of the Chicago International Film Festival

13 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

This year marks the 50th anniversary of North America’s oldest competitive international film festival. From Oct. 9–23, Chicagoans can take in a vast array of stories old and new, long and short, near and far. Best of all? Tickets for the Chicago International Film Festival start at only $7 per film. “There are a couple of different things we’re doing this year,” festival programming director Mimi Plauché told Backstage. “One is a much larger number of retrospective, repertory screenings.” Hits such as “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” which had its world premiere in Chicago in 1975, will be screened alongside entries for the New Directors Competition. Award-winning director Oliver Stone, whose student film premiered at the festival at the beginning of his career, will present “Alexander: Ultimate Edition” and a director’s cut of “Natural Born Killers,” as well as participate in talkbacks with audiences. “A lot of »

The Callow Way – Television vs Film

12 October 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For modern life, add more smartphones.

Neil Calloway looks at a media debate for our times (and the early 1950s, if you’ve ever looked at Hollywood’s output during that era)…Television vs Film.

In a recent interview James Spader said that film was no longer a superior medium to television.

It’s easy to agree; we binge watch TV shows in the comfort of our own homes and rarely venture to the cinema; you can see why Spader, riding high as the star of The Blacklist rather than as an actor in forgettable films (come on, Sex, Lies and Videotape was more than twenty years ago; what’s he done recently? When did you last say “let’s go and see the new James Spader film”? When did you ever?) would think that. Coming out of Gone Girl last week, in which Neil Patrick Harris has a small but pivotal role, »

The 50th anniversary edition of the Chicago International Film Festival, running from October 9-23, will feature, as Ray Pride notes, "notable appearances and master classes, including Michael Moore presenting his restored version of Roger & Me, a film that was nearly lost; producer-turned-online distributor Ted Hope talking about his memoir-manifesto, Hope For Film, and Oliver Stone, with a director’s cut of Natural Born Killers and Alexander: Ultimate Edition, a fourth version of his 2004 epic, reportedly with a warm handful of homoerotic content restored to its 207-minute duration. An Isabelle Huppert tribute will trail four features, including Michael Haneke’s The Piano Teacher and Claire Denis’s White Material, both shown in 35mm." » - David Hudson »

Oscar-winning 'Apollo 13' sound mixer set for career achievement honor

29 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether you knew it or not, you've been listening to sound mixer David Macmillan's work for years. There's early stuff, like "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Birdy" and "SpaceCamp" (yes!). There's recent stuff like "Twilight," "Hancock" and "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin." And there's the Oscar-winning stuff scattered throughout, like "The Right Stuff," "Speed" and "Apollo 13." The guy is a legend in the field, so of course he's a great fit for the Cinema Audio Society's (Cas) Career Achievement Award. Macmillan began his career over half a century ago as an apprentice in Canadian television before eventually connecting with Francis Ford Coppola. The "Godfather" director was in the process of building American Zoetrope in San Francisco and hired Macmillan to run the company's mixing facility. From there, his career took off. He has more than 80 feature films to his credit, the three aforementioned Oscars (he won every time he was nominated), collaborations with Oliver Stone, »

In 2003, Oliver Stone, the provocative director behind Platoon and Natural Born Killers, debuted his documentary on Fidel Castro. The hour-and-a-half feature was an intimate showcase of the communist and revolutionary figure. Exploring the hierarchy of power within communist Cuba through archival footage and the fascinations of its figurehead, Stone’s Comandante marries the director’s political musings with a challenging man.

Jump Cuts and X-Ratings: Milestones in Film Censorship

27 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Each week HeyUGuys will take a primary focus on the site. This could be a genre of movie, an aspect of the industry, a specific person or part of the movie making process we want to explore further. This week our focus is the divisive issue of film censorship. We began yesterday with a debate of the necessity of the BBFC, and today Beth Webb explains the censorial milestones we have passed. Tomorrow Cai Ross lists the scenes which caused the censors a headache and on Friday we’ll be looking forward to the future of film censorship.

Since 1912 the British Board of Film Censors has been standardising films for its audiences, sifting through the obscene, the violent and the suggestive to ensure that movies receive the classification seen fit. Today, as part of our Film Censorship week, take a look at some of the landmarks in both the British »

Texas Chainsaw Prequel Titled Leatherface, Now Has A Writer

14 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this month, we brought you word that Texas Chainsaw‘s next installment might not be a direct sequel to 2013′s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Instead, Millenium Films was said to be mulling over a prequel centering on a teenage Leatherface. At the time, a writer was said to be in talks to pen a script for the project. Now, for better or worse, it’s been confirmed that the prequel, simply titled Leatherface, is up next for the franchise and will feature a script from Seth M. Sherwood.

Little is known with regard to the specifics of the plot, though Leatherface is said to be a ’70s-set origin story which will take place before Tobe Hooper’s original film. As such, it’s unlikely that Texas Chainsaw 3D star Alexandra Daddario, originally expected to become the series’ new lead actress after that film, will be returning outside of a possible cameo appearance. »

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel 'Leatherface' Gets Writer Seth M. Sherwood

13 August 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Millennium Films is moving forward with its planned Texas Chainsaw prequel, now simply titled Leatherface, hiring writer Seth M. Sherwood to pen the screenplay.

Last Month, it was rumored that this proposed prequel will focus on the iconic killer's teenage years. The Wrap is confirming that to be true, though no further details have been released as Millennium Films keeps the plot under wraps. It's believed that Leatherface will be an origin story, which shows how the chainsaw wielding mad man came of age in the 1970s.

Alexandra Daddario, who starred as Leatherface's long-lost cousin in Texas Chainsaw 3D, was originally set to return for a true sequel to that 2013 movie, which claimed to be the 'real' continuation of the very first The Texas Chainsaw Massacre released in 1974. Because of this new iteration's timeline, it is not known if she is still going to appear, though its unlikely that she »

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part One: Jerry Smith

12 August 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

With Beyond Fright, we like to focus on things somewhat on the fringe of horror. Whether it be great music or just  films that might be on the tip of something based in genres that might not be considered “horror” by most standards, but still have that great genre vibe. While brainstorming ideas for articles, it occurred to me that I write with rituals in the back of my mind. Now before you jump to conclusions and picture me with a black and red robe on while sacrificing a virgin, let me clarify: I don’t mean rituals in that sense, but in the terms of specific things that i find myself doing before and during the actual writing of an article, review or various other forms of doing what I enjoy: creating. Music has always played a huge part in my life, and when sitting down to write something for Icons, »

The Green Mile 15th Anniversary Blu-ray Release Details

23 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

What if you were guarding a prisoner on death row who was capable of performing miracles? This is the moral dilemma guard Paul Edgecomb faces in Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile, the 1999 film based on the Stephen King serial novel of the same name. At the brink of its 15th anniversary, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced a new Diamond Luxe Anniversary Edition of the film on Blu-ray.

One of five films getting the anniversary treatment from Warner Bros. (the other four are Natural Born Killers, Forrest Gump, Gremlins and Ben-Hur), The Green Mile will be re-released on Blu-ray on September 30th. It’s unknown at this time whether the new release will include a fresh transfer, but it will come with new special features, including a longer version of the behind-the-scenes documentary. The 15th anniversary release of The Green Mile features new eye-grabbing packaging that prominently places the movie’s characters. »

Warner Bros. Releasing Diamond Luxe Editions of Classic Films

20 June 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Diamond Luxe Editions of its films starting Sept. 30 as a way to repackage library titles.

The discs will feature newly designed collector-style packaging.

The first films — “The Green Mile,” “Gremlins,” “Natural Born Killers,” “Forrest Gump” and “Ben-Hur” will be released as anniversary editions, with “Ben-Hur” also offered as a new two-disc Blu-ray package.

All Diamond Luxe discs will include new or additional bonus features and are priced at $24.98.

Warner Bros. said the new line is meant to encourage collectability. It’s also clearly a way for the studio to mint more coin out of its library at a time when more consumers are building digital libraries for their mobile devices.
