The 33 | 2015 AFI Film Festival Review

Mountains May Depart: Riggen Reenacts Devastating Chilean Mining Collapse

Mexican director Patricia Riggen makes a curious departure with her third feature, The 33, a studio backed reenactment of the infamous Chilean mining collapse projected worldwide by the media. The world watched in eerie anticipation as thirty-three men waited patiently to be excavated from the bowels of the earth, stuck for an astounding sixty-nine days together in a mining shelter reservoir with a space allotted for thirty. It was one of the most notable world news headlines in 2010, and with all of the men eventually brought to safety in mid-October, they also provided inspiration for Halloween group themed costumes everywhere. If such a move was moderately silly (or tactless) at the time, this Hollywood treatment seems equally exploitative as it mines for thrills akin to the glut of disaster themed studio extravaganzas of the 1970s. Riggen seems committed to humanizing these »

14 times similar movies went head to head at the box office

Deep Impact Vs Armageddon is not the only time similar movies have landed around the same time...

Usually, a competing project is poison for a studio. Especially in the era now where a blockbuster costs the national budget of a small country to get out into the world, you don't want to be up against a film with similar subject matter.

Yet this keeps happening, time and time again. Even now, there are two live action Jungle Book movies in various stages of production, for example. And let us not forget when K-9 and Turner And Hooch once did battle...

But how have the movie showdowns of old turned out? And are there any instances where everyone's a winner?

Er, not many as it happens...

The Haunting Vs The House On Haunted Hill

Let's start with two reasonably budgeted horror films, that both got wide releases. Jan De Bont »

Celebrating bad artwork on DVD reissues

17 April 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When a DVD gets a reissue, its distributor tends to change the artwork. Er, not always for the better...

Movie studios love having large catalogues of older movies. They guarantee a revenue stream after all, through TV sales, streaming services, and the occasional repackaging of a DVD and/or Blu-ray edition.

But new packaging means new artwork, and a star who was hot when the film first came around may have faded since. Plus, audience trends change. Plus, there's the added bonus of luring people to buy two copies. Marvellous!

Most of the time, artwork updates go without a hitch. But in recent times, particularly with 90s movies we've noticed, some of the updates, er, 'dumb things down' slightly. Most of these exhibits are from the UK, we should note. If we broadened it more than we had into the Us - which we may do in a future piece »

‘The Burning Dead’ Review

14 February 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Danny Trejo, Thomas Downey, Moniqua Plante, Nicole Cummins, Kevin Norman, Robert F. Lyons, Kyle T. Heffner, Julia Lehman, Tom Nagel, Jenny Lin, Adam Gregor, Robert Amstler, Matthew W. Tate, Morgan Lester, Jailene Arias | Written by Jason Ancona, Jeff Miller | Directed by Rene Perez

Say, you know what would have made the Tommy Lee Jones disaster movie Volcano better? Lava zombies and cult icon Danny Trejo, if Rene Perez’s undead disaster movie is anything to go by. When a simmering volcano blows its top in small-town America, the locals have more to worry about than simple immolation – the emergence of a horde of long-buried zombies from within adding considerably to their woes.

A small band of survivors hustle together to escape both the perils of the lava and the zombies, hunkering down in a woodland cabin, where the crinkly old resident within is undergoing some serious social media withdrawal symptoms. »

New UK trailer and poster for Wild Card starring Jason Statham

30 January 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer and poster have arrived online for Wild Card, the latest thriller starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), and you can check them both out below…

Wild Card is a quasi-remake of 1986 thriller Heat, which was initially written by William Goldman. The original film starred Burt Reynolds and was directed by Dick Richards (who replaced Robert Altman) and was a critical and box-office flop. Goldman described the film as “One of my major disasters”.

It’s production is something of a legend, as Richards and Reynolds got into a fight that left Reynolds injured and need of an ambulance, and later director Richards suffered a fall from a camera crane. But while that film suffered, the new version sticks closer to Goldman’s original vision, rather than what the film ended up becoming.

“It was one of those classic horror story [productions],“ West told Den of Geek in 2013, “which »
