[Review Repost] ‘Hounds of Love’ is a Tense Abduction Story From a New Perspective

12 May 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Having domestic abuse in my family history makes it a sensitive subject. It’s not just that abuse was normalized decades ago, it’s that a woman wasn’t even believed if they had reported it. While the idea of a Bonnie and Clyde is romanticized by modern film (i.e. Natural Born Killers), it’s actually terrifying to think […] »

The Putin Interviews Has to Be Interesting if Only Because of Putin and Oliver Stone

1 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Oliver Stone has cemented himself as not only one of the best directors of the past 100 years or so, but also one of the most controversial.  One the one hand you see Stone in the mainstream and he just kills it with films like Wall Street, Platoon or Born on the Fourth of July.  On the other you can tell that the man just decides to do his own thing with a film like Natural Born Killers.   There are times he goes for Hollywood and others he goes for himself.  In any situation he’s going for originality, creativity, and

The Hollywood star answered questions on English football, Clarence Darrow, living in Hawaii and directing his film, Lost in London, in one take

2.05pm BST

I'd just like to say thank you to everybody who took the time out of their day to be a part of this. I know there were a lot I didn't answer, but there were literally hundreds! I was a captive of how much time I had. Also, I really hope you guys go see Lost in London, because it's a labour of love, and a lot of great people spent a lot of time working on it. And having said all that - have a great day!

Proselytiser asks:

Cheers has withstood the test of time and is as charming now as it was 20 years ago. Did you have any inkling back then that you were joining a show destined for such longevity? »

Tribeca 2017: Ashley Bell's one for the ages in Psychopaths

29 April 2017 10:32 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Coming at ya it's Jason Adams reporting from the Tribeca Film Festival again...

Psychopaths is kind of what Natural Born Killers would have looked like directed by David Lynch... or at least that's what Psychopaths wants you to think it is, and it wants you to think that really really hard. It's not quite up to all of that, but then anything that was up to all of that would've blown my brains through the back of the movie theater, so perhaps it's for the best. I like what's left of my brains and I want to keep them inside my head »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Whitney. “Can I Be Me”‘

28 April 2017 8:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Whitney. ‘Can I Be Me'” is Nick Broomfield’s documentary about the life and death of Whitney Houston, and it’s the rare Nick Broomfield movie in which the filmmaker isn’t center stage. He co-directed it with Rudi Dolezal, and there isn’t a single scene in which Broomfield, with his puckish, dogged delight in stalking interview subjects, invades a room tailed by a crew member holding a boom mike, thrusting himself into the face of Bobby Brown or Clive Davis or Whitney Houston’s relatives or the maid who cleaned her hotel room the night she died. I’m a fan of Broomfield’s conspiracy-theory music docs (“Biggie & Tupac,” “Kurt & Courtney”), but “Whitney: ‘Can I Be Me'” has no conspiracies to uncover. It just has a story to tell, and it does that incredibly compellingly.

“Can I Be Me” gets us to know Whitney Houston, to feel her »

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

24 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

Lovers on the Run

21 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

An exclusive video traces from Bonnie and Clyde to Mickey and Mallory and all stops between.

One of the most tried and true tropes in all of movie history is that of lovers on the run. They can be petty thieves, master criminals, wrongfully-accused innocents, chance acquaintances, fleeing victims, or escaping wards, but whatever the impetus they are two lovers, usually young, who take to the open road to get away from whatever unforgiving lives they come from. Films about lovers on the run differ from other duos in similar situations because no matter how wicked said lovers are, the fact that they are in love always generates empathy from an audience, even if we can’t connect to the impulses or decision-making skills of the characters, we can understand their motivation to avoid capture and stay together no matter what: they’re in love. And yes, sometimes that love is an anchor and sometimes it’s »

Game Of Death Review [SXSW 2017]

14 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Somewhere between Scanners and Beyond The Gates exists Game Of Death, a kill-em-all deathmatch rooted in Hasbro innocence. Directors Sebastien Landry and Laurence “Baz” Morais inject nihilistic curiosity into a gruesome, head-splitting gore flick that abides by predetermined rules. Questions about existence first, visceral body-mutilating second. Or is it bloody, practical-fx-driven cranium combusting first, existential dread second? There’s a constant tug-of-war at play between bewildered contestants and unlucky bystanders, who are slain in the name of diabolical decisions. Are there any winners in the Game Of Death? That’s for you to decide.

It all starts with millennial partying. Attractive hardbodies swill liquor and get high while chillaxing poolside at some lavish crash pad. Ashley (Emelia Hellman) hooks up with boyfriend Matt (Thomas Vallieres). Kenny (Nick Serino) wakes up with a cartoon dick on his face. Brother Tom (Sam Earle) receives a sensual lap dance from sister Beth (Victoria Diamond) – wait, »

Why Die Hard 2 was sued by Black & Decker

10 March 2017 5:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 13, 2017

Die Hard 2 was a box office hit - but it was taken to court for damaging Black & Decker's credibility...

Product placement in movies underwent a bit of a transformation following the infamous case of Coca-Cola and Natural Born Killers. I’ve written about that in more detail here.

In the early 1990s, it was nowhere near the polished industry we know it as today. The one where a blockbuster film can routinely come with 100 or so commercial tie-ins, and where branded products are shunted in front of our eyes, as if the local Odeon has just switched QVC on for a second.

Back when 20th Century Fox pressed ahead with Die Hard 2: Die Harder, it knew it had to find a hefty budget. Producer Joel Silver’s films were at the stage where they were blowing through heavier amounts of cash to bring spectacle to the screen, »

Long Lost Paranormal Activity Audition Videos Uncovered by Director

2 February 2017 12:42 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Arriving in September 2009, Paranormal Activity was a surprise horror hit that almost got dumped into a wasteland of nothingness. Paramount executives caught wind of the movie and realized they had another Blair Witch phenomena on their hands. The rest, as they say, is horror movie history. Now, with six movies released under the franchise name, original director Oren Peli is feeling a bit nostalgic about it all. And he has uncovered some great audition tapes from that very first outing.

The filmmaker released the full extended version of the Paranormal Audition tapes on Youtube, which run a total of 10 minutes. He also released a shorter version that runs just 5 minutes in length. Both videos beautifully capture what he saw in his two leading actors. He says this about the tapes.

"The entirely improvised Paranormal Activity auditions and callbacks with Micah Sloat and Katie Featherston. Extended version."

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Writers and the scripts that made them great

25 January 2017 4:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Having scoured the ranks of actors to draw up a shortlist of the best of them and then a selection of their best work, we now move on to consider the best work by the greatest writers. This can be a harder thing to judge, given that there will often be a team of writers, or polishing work is done on a script that is otherwise someone else’s work. Quentin Tarantino did some polishing on Crimson Tide, but by contrast his script for Natural Born Killers is much less distinctively his, bearing as it does a lot of Oliver Stone’s fingerprints. What we will (try to) focus on are those writers who rather than being hacks for hire have instead crafted something all their own and seen it transition relatively unmolested to the screen.

As with the Best of the Best of the Actors, we »

CinemaSins takes aim at “Suicide Squad” in its latest “everything wrong with…” video, showing viewers what the DC Comics action film gets wrong in 20 minutes or less.

“Well, here’s an absolute travesty of a movie, from start to finish. ‘Suicide Squad’ has so many sins, I considered quitting. This movie is just…bad. And here are its sins,” reads the description.

Harley stealing Juliette Lewis’ jail scene from “Natural Born Killers” and the never-ending cliché of guards eating pizza or Chinese food instead of paying attention to security monitors are among the many “sins” found in the movie. CinemaSins also claims that the David Ayer-directed film stole the graphic style from “Deadpool” in the scene that finds Viola Davis’ character, Amanda Waller, introducing Deadshot.

Sherlock series 4 episode 2 review: The Lying Detective

9 January 2017 4:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jan 9, 2017

The Lying Detective is lurid, horribly entertaining episode of Sherlock packed with style and surprises. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 The Lying Detective

What a circus that was; acrobatics, dangerous creatures, clowning, surprise turns, high-wire danger… the lot. By the time the end credits rolled, you were left feeling enjoyably concussed, the sheer ‘whomp’ of it having sent cartoon stars spinning around your head. 

Once the ice-pack had been applied and you could see straight again, did the story stand up to prodding? Not all of it perhaps, but in the lurid, implausible realm of Sherlock Holmes, originally filled with putty noses and poison darts, who’s counting?
