Monster Fest, Australia’s foremost celebration of cult cinema, kicks off on November 20th with the Melbourne premiere of the eagerly awaited Australian slasher film, Charlie’s Farm at Cinema Nova, Carlton. Helmed by Chris Sun, who also directed the superb Daddy’s Little Girl (review), the film tells the story of Charlie Wilson, played by the Mad Max: Fury Road actor, and 6’11″ Australian strongman, Nathan Jones, and his brutal encounters with 4 thrill seeking friends – led by actress Tara Reid (American Pie, Sharknado) – in the Australian outback.
At the back of beyond lies an abandoned farm known to some as ”Charlie’s Farm”. Legend has it that it once housed a family of blood crazed maniacs who, after years of murder and torture, met their fate at the hands of a local mob hellbent on vengeance. When four thrill seekers head to the farm for a weekend of morbid exploration, »

Ensemble films can be quite the tricky endeavor, especially for a first time director. Making sure one person has their performances dialed can be a pain in the ass, but a whole group of people?, That can be murder. Luckily, in the case of Travis Oates and his feature debut, Don’T Blink, the ensemble not only shines, but gives viewers one hell of a time while doing so.
Focusing on a group of ten friends heading to a secluded resort for a weekend getaway, Don’T Blink doesn’t waste any time in letting audiences get to know it’s characters. Jack and Tracy (Chromeskull: Laid To Rest‘s Brian Austin Green and American Pie‘s Mena Suvari), a happy couple on the verge of the next step in a relationship leads the group, filled with couples Sam and Charlotte (The Amazing Spiderman‘s Leif Gantvoort and First Winter »

It takes a gutsy TV pilot to build to a closing scene of an adorable teenage boy getting his leg amputated — and then to sell it as a moment that’s as soaring as it is heartbreaking.
But Red Band Society — a freshman drama that initially looks like over-boiled broccoli but tastes like delicious pizza — has concocted a recipe that, while not entirely perfect, manages to cut its saccharine undertones with acidic punchlines and a complex, meditative view of mortality that’s worth the price of the two or three Kleenex required to get to the closing credits.

In this gripping suspense-thriller, 10 friends head to a remote mountain resort for a quiet weekend getaway. But upon their arrival, the rustic lodge is more than just sleepy … it’s deserted.
Food is served, baths are drawn and signs of guests are everywhere but the forest and cabin are eerily silent, devoid of all life. With no gas, cell service or phones to be found, the anxious group is left wondering what to do next.

In Timothy S. Susanin’s book Walt Before Mickey: Disney's Early Years, readers are treated to a portrait of the famous animator from age 17 through his rise to international stardom. Directed by first-time filmmaker Khoa Le, Walt Before Mickey reveals the struggles Disney faced in the early days at his animation studio in Kansas when it was known as “Iwerks-Disney Commercial Artists.” Disney’s most popular character, Mickey Mouse, didn’t appear on film until 1929’s Plane Crazy, so when we say “early days,” we mean it. Thomas Ian Nicholas from American Pie portrays Disney, while Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder (whoa) takes on the role of brother Roy. According to Design Taxi, this is a straight-to-video affair...

In his book Teenage, Jon Savage pinpoints the exact era when the idea of mopey, angry, hormone-filled adolescents finally took root in popular culture. Before 1945, there was no such thing as a teenager, no hinterland between childhood and adulthood. You finished school, then you were a grown up. No time to tread water or get used to things, just thrown in at the deep end. It’s only in the 20th century that the “liminal state of development that is temporally finite, cut short by the onslaught of responsibility and exhilaration of adulthood” reared its ugly head. Which coincides, rather handily, with the invention of the teen movie.
The fifties saw the rise of the rebellious biker picture, all rebels without causes and wild ones. The seventies was the time for George Lucas’ nostalgic American Graffiti to take the young folks’ minds off the draft. The eighties was presided over by John Hughes, »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

I'm surprised that we haven't seen a really good biopic based on the life of Walt Disney. The closest thing we've gotten is his portrayal by Tom Hanks in the movie Saving Mr. Banks. There is an independent film coming though called Walt Before Mickey, which chronicles the early days of Walt's animation career. The film was directed by Juilliard graduate Khoa Le, and it's based on a 2011 book by Timothy Susanin called Walt before Mickey: Disney’s Early Years, 1919-1928. The feature stars Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie) as Walt, Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) as his brother Roy, David Henrie plays an animator, and Jodie Sweetin (Full House) as Charlotte Disney.
This may seem like the kind of made for TV movie biopic that you'd see on Lifetime, but it's what we've got for now. I'm sure someday fans of Walt will get the amazing biopic we've all be waiting for. »

Also set to star retuning cast Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, as well as new additions Diane Keaton (The Godfather), Eugene Levy (American Pie) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Finding Dory takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17th, »

The story of the young Walt Disney is coming to the screen - and here's the first trailer...
Digging way back into the story of Walt Disney is the upcoming movie, Walt Before Mickey. Based on the book of the same name, the film is focusing on the early struggles of Disney, back in the days when he was an animator and businessman, rather than the head of a hugely successful company. In fact, Walt Before Mickey is likely to focus on the studios he launched before he struck gold, eventually, with Disney.
Khoa Le has directed this one, from a script by Arthur L Bernstein and Armando Gutierrez. Playing Disney? That'd be Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie), with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) playing his brother, Roy.
It's still unclear when we'll get this one, as it's yet to find a distributor. But here's the first trailer...

While audiences were served up a fantastic portrayal of a 1960s Walt Disney in last year’s Saving Mr. Banks, Khoa Le’s Walt Before Disney is set to serve up another helping of the legendary animator, only this time with a particular interest in the early, defining years of the artist’s career.
The period drama — largely based on Timothy S. Susanin’s nonfiction novel, Walt Before Mickey: Disney’s Early Years, 1919-1928 — will be situated in the 1920s, a time where Walt’s nascent career was hampered by several false starts and crushing disappointments.
Labelled as the “missing decade”, the film is set to chart Walt (played by American Pie’s Thomas Ian Nicholas) as he ventures from Missouri to California in the search of his dream — setting up four mediocre film studios along the way.

Exclusive: Before he created Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney was an animator and businessman who spent a decade shrugging off failure in order to build the studio that would turn him into an icon. The indie period drama Walt Before Mickey chronicles nine years worth of these early struggles, with American Pie‘s Thomas Ian Nicholas playing the young and ambitious Disney and Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jon Heder as his brother Roy. Check out the trailer exclusively on Deadline.
Disney fans got a peek at the 1960s-era Walt in last year’s Saving Mr. Banks, but Walt Before Mickey offers up the pre-Depression Era “missing decade” during which he launched four studios and moved from Missouri to California, with varying degrees of success. Jodie Sweetin (Full House) and David Henrie (Wizards Of Waverly Place) also star for first-time feature helmer Khoa Le, who directs a script by Arthur L. Bernstein and Armando Gutierrez. »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.

Starz's experimental docu-series “The Chair” dared two first-time feature filmmakers to create individual movies using the same script. A risky venture, it took Chris Moore — whose many producing credits include “Good Will Hunting,” “American Pie” and HBO filmmaker competition “Project Greenlight” – three years to get someone to make “The Chair.” “I'm still very grateful to Starz and Chris Albrecht for letting me do it,” Moore told TheWrap.

The dark comedy about depression debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the deal closed this week at the Toronto Film Festival.

The film co-stars Cox’s ex-husband David Arquette, Rob Riggle, Garret Dillahunt, Kate Walsh, and Olivia Thirlby.
The deal was negotiated by Wme Global and Kevin Kasha, Starz’s head of acquisitions.
