Annie Hall Turns 40! 12 Scenes To Over-AnalyzeAnnie Hall Turns 40! 12 Scenes To Over-AnalyzeKurt Anthony4/20/2017 11:02:00 Am

Well, la-di-da! Today is the 40th anniversary of Annie Hall!

Released on April 20, 1977, Woody Allen’s nervous romance has earned its reputation as one of the funniest movies of all time. With an impressive supporting cast and an endless supply of classic one-liners and witty pop culture references, it’s no surprise Annie Hall is considered one of Allen’s most iconic films.

Set to a budget of $4M and taking in an adjusted $140M at the box office, Annie Hall definitely ranks as Allen’s highest grossing production, but don’t forget the awards! They always give out awards! During the 1978 Oscars, Annie Hall took home four of the coveted statues, including the top honour for Best Picture, beating out a little space opera known as Star Wars.

Joe Walsh's Best Serious Songs

I recently posted a Joe Walsh song on my Facebook wall and the reaction was mixed. One commenter wrote, "Walsh always struck me as the real-life Spicoli, and that was about as seriously as I could take him." This is a common misconception about Walsh.

Walsh has had a music career of over five decades. There are many, many people who know of him mostly as a member of the Eagles (since 1975) who had a hit in 1978 with a funny song, "Life's Been Good." Yet Walsh was a music biz veteran of eleven years’ standing when Hotel California was released in 1976; he would not have been recruited into the Eagles if he had not already established himself as such a distinctive guitarist that he could instantly give them the rock cred they so desired. Already on his resume were the killer riffs of "Rocky Mountain Way," "Turn to Stone," "Walk Away,

Fright At Home – June 30th brings Pit Stop, The Bronx Trilogy from Casterrari, Ghost House/Witchery

We like to tell you fright fanatics about weekly releases that really stand out to us. We could go down the line about every single release, like every other site does, and there’s nothing wrong with that. What Fright At Home is about though, is letting you genre (and non-genre) lovers about releases that makes Us excited, because there are no rock stars here, we’re just like you, we Are you, horror lovers.

So with June 30th being here and this week’s releases being placed onto the shelves by your local video store workers (do those still exist?), here are a few releases that have for one reason or another, stood out to us.

Arrow Video Bringing Pit Stop, La Grande Bouffe and Blood Rage To DVD/Bluray This June/August!

For a good while, fans of Arrow Video’s amazing releases had to put their heads in the laps and cry while listening to Joy Division, due to the releases not being U.S. capable (unless you had an all region player or liked to be a hacker…like the girl in Jurassic Park…). Well, Arrow is a company that cares, and they’ve expanded their releases to the States, and I for one, have been doing jumping jacks nonstop over it (not really, I still have a gut dammit).

We were sent some information that made us quite excited, and if you’re one of the cool kids (blame my daughter for my using of that phrase, she is obsessed with that crazily catchy song), you’ll be excited as well!

On June 30th, Arrow is bringing Pit Stop, Jack Hill’s awesome followup to Spiderbaby (another film that

Liverpool return to European footballs top table after a five-year absence. Their opponents, Ludogorets, will be unfamiliar to all but the most clued-up of football hipsters, though the Bulgarian side did enjoy 15 minutes of YouTube fame thanks to their play-off victory over Steaua Bucharest, in which defender Cosmin Moti went in goal for the deciding penalty shoot-out (after Ludogoretss keeper was sent off in extra time), and, amazingly, managed to save two spot-kicks.

The Motorway: Life in the Fast Lane; Wilderness Walks with Ray Mears beware of peeing, pooing and spitting lorry drivers

This BBC2 documentary follows some of the teams trying to keep the M6 ticking. Its a bleak picture of choked-up Britain

The M6, our longest motorway, is the countrys aorta, feeding the old industrial heart. But its the aorta and heart of a heavy smoker, clogged up and knackered; the West Midlands is choking up, that aneurism is never far off. The Motorway: Life in the Fast Lane (BBC2) follows some of the teams trying to keep it all ticking. Men in hi-viz vests and hard hats, not scrubs.

Actually, the fast lane is a bit of a misnomer. Not only does the traffic on the M6 never move very quickly, if at all (except when the men in hard hats have to run across it, which they do when they need to close the motorway). Most of the drama in this oddly fascinating but depressing observational documentary happens over

Nicolas Winding Refn’s operatic love story-turned-ruthless revenger was one of the finest films of 2011 and why the Academy Awards refused to acknowledge it is something that boggles the mind. Ryan Gosling leads the 1980s-inspired thriller as an almost silent movie stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver on the neon-infused streets of Los Angeles. We could have chosen the balletic

Anniversaries: Hotel California hits #1 on LP Chart 30 Years Ago

Eagles: Hotel California (Asylum/Elektra)

The Eagles were considered one of the top country-rock bands practically from the day the group came together. Certainly the consecutive No. 1 singles "Best of My Love" and "One of These Nights" and No. 2 "Lyin' Eyes" in 1974-75 made them mainstream rock fans' favorite country rockers by a wide margin. Extensive touring ensued, in the midst of which founding member Bernie Leadon (previously in the Flying Burrito Brothers) quit and the more rock-oriented Joe Walsh (ex-James Gang, and already with a moderately successful solo career) took his place after having opened for the Eagles on tour in 1974 thanks to sharing the same manager, the ruthless Irving Azoff

The reconstituted quintet took its time recording its fifth album. Their eponymous debut had been laid down in two weeks; Hotel California took eight months. Asylum filled in the gap with the best-selling collection Greatest Hits 1971-1975., which,
