DVD Playhouse December 2010

By

Allen Gardner

America Lost And Found: The Bbs Story (Criterion) Perhaps the best DVD box set released this year, this ultimate cinefile stocking stuffer offered up by Criterion, the Rolls-Royce of home video labels, features seven seminal works from the late ‘60s-early ‘70s that were brought to life by cutting edge producers Bert Schneider, Steve Blauner and director/producer Bob Rafelson, the principals of Bbs Productions. In chronological order: Head (1968) star the Monkees, the manufactured (by Rafelson, et al), American answer to the Beatles who, like it or not, did make an impact on popular culture, particularly in this utterly surreal piece of cinematic anarchy (co-written by Jack Nicholson, who has a cameo), which was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but is now regarded as a counterculture classic. Easy Rider (1969) is arguably regarded as the seminal ‘60s picture, about two hippie drug dealers (director Dennis Hopper »

[DVD Review] Cher: The Film Collection

2 December 2010 8:15 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Longevity seems to be the operative word when it comes to Cher. In her 46 year show business career, she’s had many ups and downs but she always manages to somehow remain relevant. She began as one half of the singing act Caesar and Cleo (who later changed the name of the act to Sonny and Cher) in 1964. Today, she is an Oscar-winning film star and has a new movie with Christina Aguilera in theaters.

Born Cherilyn Lapiere, she became an icon of the 1960s, along with her then-husband Sonny Bono, when their music and outlandish garb caught the spirit of the “flower power” generation. The duo starred in the Emmy-winning The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour in the 1970s and the light-hearted film Good Times (1967). Cher used her increasing popularity to record a pair of number one solo hit songs, “Half Breed” and “Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves”.

Their Best Role: Cher in 'Moonstruck'

24 November 2010 11:32 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Cinematical

Aside from marking the film debut of Christina Aguilera, 'Burlesque' heralds the onscreen return of Cher, whose last major movie role was in 1999's 'Tea with Mussolini' (though she spoofed herself delightfully in 2003's 'Stuck on You'). A completely unique performer and bonafide superstar, Cher has had amazing success as a pop diva, television star and movie actress since she started out 45 years ago as half of a "hippie" singing duo (and showbiz marriage).

Though she has proved her mettle as a straight-up actress in several memorable roles, big-screen stardom didn't seem to be in the cards early on. Her first big film was 1967's 'Good Times,' a silly movie-parody musical in which she and Sonny Bono appeared as themselves. (It was also the movie debut of director William Friedkin, who'd go on to helm 'The French Connection' and 'The Exorcist. »

Cher is back in Burlesque

22 November 2010 8:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Getting Cher to commit to Burlesque took some doing.

"I drove all of them crazy," Cher recalled. The big-screen musical, about a veteran nightclub performer and the newcomer she takes under her wing, was already well on its way. Co-star Christina Aguilera was in place. And, for a while, so was Cher, marking her first major feature-film role since 1999's Tea with Mussolini.

Then she changed her mind, explaining that her character "wasn't exactly who she turned out to be on screen, and I needed her to be that character."

That's when the director and the head of the studio resorted to stalking Cher. »

Cher: The Film Collection DVD (Good Times/Chastity/Silkwood/Moonstruck/Mermaids/Tea With Mussolini)

20 November 2010 10:39 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

DVD Review

With the upcoming release of Burlesque, Cher’s first starring role in 11 years, MGM is releasing a box set featuring six of Cher’s films on DVD.

Good Times

Directed by: William Friedkin

Cast: Sonny Bono, Cher, George Sanders

Running Time: 1 hr 30 min

Rating: Nr

Due Out: November 2, 2010

Plot: Sonny and Cher are asked to make a movie!  The rest of the film loosely follows the couple as they imagine various scenarios for their movie.

Who’S It For? Do you like Sonny and Cher?  Especially Sonny?  Because he’s the real star of this venture.

Movie:

The film follows the variety show format used on Sonny and Cher’s show, though it doesn’t really work for a movie.  They want to recreate the fun of Help! but as people, they’re just not that engaging.  Or more accurately, Sonny isn’t. But that isn’t the only problem, »

Great Moments in Cher: 5 High Points You Won't Find on Her New DVD Set

5 November 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

As arbitrary here's-a-bunch-of-movies-this-studio-owns-on-dvd box sets go, The Cher Collection (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment) at least provides something of a career retrospective of the star's film presence from kitschy hippie (Good Times, Chastity) to Serious Actress (Silkwood, Moonstruck) to marquee diva (Mermaids, Tea with Mussolini). But one box set can barely cover the extraordinary breadth of Cher's contributions to pop culture - hell, not even the medium of cinema can begin to do justice to the many corners of the zeitgeist where she's had an impact. So in honor of this new DVD set, here's a list of some our favorite, other Great Moments in Cher: »

Joe Queenan's guide to arthouse cliches

20 October 2010 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The ideal arthouse film is set in a part of the world few of us know and even fewer intend to visit. The steppes of Central Asia or a forlorn village in Central America are fine, but rural Slovakia will do in an emergency. The arthouse film should make us feel that we understand the world better than we do, even though we don't. It should give us a sense of moral and intellectual superiority over people who go to see Tom Cruise movies. It should star Tilda Swinton, or seem like a film in which she would be likely to appear. It should be a bit grainy. Gypsies, often in distress, may be in the mix, but generally not the Amish. Ideally, a proper arthouse film should have mangled subtitles. Children should be abandoned, or on a long trip over the mountains, or trying to recover lost shoes, or »

Thank You Santa! "Cher: The FIlm Collection" Will Be Here For The Holidays!

28 September 2010 8:24 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Cher!

Did you feel it?

Cher!

Did you feel the tingling?

It's a little known fact that the word causes a biological reaction in the gay brain, resulting in a tingling sensation, followed by an involuntary "Squee!," culminating in what's scientifically referred to as a Chergasm.

Well get ready for an all-out Cherplosion (I promise that's my last Cher pun) with the November 2nd release of "Cher: The Film Collection."

The box set contains six Cher films: Good Times, Chastity, Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids and Tea With Mussolini.

Wait a minute. What?

I agree that Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids, and the underrated Tea are must-haves, but those first two movies should have stayed in the time capsule, especially when there are so many other classic Cher films to pick from. I realize that they may not have had the "rights" or whatever to include them, but that's not going to stop my hackles from raising. »

Yes, No, Maybe So: Burlesque

5 August 2010 10:22 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I almost don't have the stamina for this after drooling all over Showgirls (1995) for three or so hours yesterday. But the first trailer for the new musical Burlesque (2010) has arrived and we'll all be comparing the films from now on. Until we're actually watching it at least. Then... who knows? Movie|Line has already memorably mocked the trailer sayingWhat would happen if Glitter, Showgirls and Nine had a baby — and that baby was raised by Cher and Stanley Tucci’s character from The Devil Wears Prada?And we can't compete with that. Sometimes you just have to tip your hat.

But we're here for the "Yes, No or Maybe So?" treatment anyway which isn't the same thing as making fun. Are you eager to see it, desperate to avoid or totally on the fence? It's often some mix for me and this is how it breaks down.
