Inside Danny Elfman's Twisted Cult Film 'Forbidden Zone'

6 November 2015 8:58 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Long before he wrote the wild, dramatic score for Batman and the twisted song cycle that runs through the beloved Nightmare Before Christmas, Danny Elfman's original claim to cinematic fame was far quirkier than anything he'd ever dream up for Tim Burton: He portrayed Satan, dressed in a long-tail white tux, conducting an orchestra of goblins in a run-through of every "hidey-hidey-hidey-ho" in Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher." The episode, in the campy 1980 cult hit Forbidden Zone, found the redheaded composer wiggling, shimmying and writhing as he »

Reese Witherspoon: American Cinematheque Honors Hollywood Power Woman

30 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the rising buzz about female superheroes, let’s praise the plain old Hollywood heroics of Reese Witherspoon, who’s being honored Oct. 30 by the American Cinematheque. The brainy blonde was ahead of the gender equality curve, founding her own movie company, Pacific Standard, and developing female-driven projects with partner Bruna Papandrea. Given the New Orleans native’s Type-a personality, it’s no surprise that her company’s first two films, “Wild” (in which she starred) and “Gone Girl,” earned three Oscar nominations — with Witherspoon nabbing one for actress.

With these two films, Witherspoon, an avid reader, solidified the bridge between chick lit and chick films that had already been established by Ya super-hits “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games.” And, like the heroines in these post-feminist movies, Witherspoon wasn’t going to go all damsel-in-distress: if there weren’t enough challenging female roles, she would build them herself. »

The Conversation: Top 10 American Indie Filmmakers Missing in Action

26 October 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

No film buff wants to see a promising, or prominent filmmaker pull a disappearing act a la Terrence Malick, (though it seems he isn’t keen to repeat another lapse like the one between Days of Heaven to The Thin Red Line), but whether they’re dealing with unforeseeable professional (endless pre-production woes, writer’s block) or personal issues, sometimes there is a considerable time between projects.

With John Cameron Mitchell, Charlie KaufmanRebecca MillerPatty Jenkins, Kenneth Lonergan and more recently, Barry Jenkins recently moving out of the so called “inactive” period, we decided to compile a list of the top ten American filmmakers who, for the most part, we’ve lost sight of and would like to see get back in the director’s chair again. Most of the filmmakers listed below have gone well over half a decade without a substantial movement in this category. Here is »

Fright At Home – August 4th: Snakes, Bears, Zombies and Cannibals!!

4 August 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week sees quite a few releases hitting shelves/stores, with everything from giant snakes fighting giant crocs to post-apocalyptic survival and hey, there’s even some killer bears and cannibals thrown in for good measure. We thought we’d shine the spotlight on a few of the standout genre (and a couple of non-genre) films that are available to pick up today, and while we’ve tackled some of them already (Inner DemonsBurying The Ex and Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead), we’ve got the rundown on the rest for you fright fanatics!



Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story (Anchor Bay/Gravitas Ventures)

A feature film based on the popular (and creepy) Marble Hornets series, Always Watching brings the series and the eerie Slender Man into your DVD players, with a found footage-like tale revolving around a trio of reporters that get caught up in something way over their heads. »

The Voice Season 8 Performance Finale Recap: Hat Man Vs. Supergirl?

18 May 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The greatest superhero movie of summer went down on Monday night — in the reality-competition genre, of all places! — and there wasn’t a single exploding car, collapsing building or vortex into another dimension in sight.

Some people might refer to it as The Voice‘s Season 8 Performance Finale, but to my ears, we might as well dub it Sawyer Vs. Koryn: Wonder-Teen Vocals Activate! (which, come to think of it, would be the kind of Saturday morning fare I’d encourage my children to watch).

Hot Pursuit (2015) – The Review

7 May 2015 9:26 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The superheroes started the Summer with a bang (and a pow and lotsa’ crashes) last Friday, so it’s now time for what is turning out to be another warm weather cinema staple: the female-driven, often raunchy comedy, which can probably be traced back to the surprise smash of 2011, Bridesmaids. Its breakout star, Melissa McCarthy, then became the unofficial queen of Summer R-rated gagfests with The Heat and Tammy. So, is this the 2015 model Mm comedy? Nope, we’ve got a few weeks to go before she reteams with director Paul Feig for Spy (also to premiere shortly is the feature film debut of cable TV firebrand Amy Schumer). This is an attempted funny flick that riffs on one of her previous hits. It’s an action-cop-buddy-comedy which pairs an Oscar-winning actress (like Sandra Bullock in The Heat) with funny lady mostly known for her broadcast TV work (Melissa still »

Wild Review

12 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Jean-Marc Vallee

Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Adam Driver

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 115 mins

Synopsis: After a series of unfortunate events Cheryl Strayed (Witherspoon), a recovering drug addict, sets out on a 1100 mile trek by foot across America’s Pacific Crest Trail.

This time last year we were all mesmerised by Jean-Marc Vallee’s brilliant Dallas Buyers Club, a film that saw both Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto bag an Oscar. Now just twelve months later Vallee has produced another stunning piece of cinema that is garnering a lot of award season chatter.

Once more the story is a true life tale, this time around we have Reese Witherspoon starring as Cheryl Strayed, a young woman who, through determination to turn her life around, makes it her mission to conquer the Pacific Crest Trail. For those not in the know the Pacific Crest Trail is really long (over 1000 miles).
