Pulp

A spoof? A black comedy? Michael Hodges and Michael Caine’s hardboiled ‘foreign intrigue’ comedy lays on the movie references and clever dialogue, going the distance in the arcane, hipster-noir subgenre. Caine is always good in that mode, and Mickey Rooney gets a supporting role that can only be called bizarre.

‘This Is Us’: Every Sylvester Stallone Scene Ranked By Its Inspirational Power

‘This Is Us’: Every Sylvester Stallone Scene Ranked By Its Inspirational Power
“People can be good” seems like an oddly basic concept to celebrate, but given current events, “This Is Us” delivered the message audiences needed most Tuesday night: People can be good, and sometimes those people are Sylvester Stallone.

In Episode 3, “Déjà Vu,” the most inspirational action star of all-time guest-starred on TV’s most inspirational series and, well, things got emotional. Stallone was invited to join the series by his “Rocky Balboa” co-star Milo Ventimiglia, who played Rocky Jr. in the 2006 film, so it was doubly fitting to learn that Jack was a die-hard Stallone fan in the series. Clever work, Dan Fogelman.

But how much of the good vibes came from Stallone’s presence and how much came from the writing? Did the presence of a three-time Oscar nominee distract from the series’ central storyline or enhance it? And most importantly, how did viewers feel after each one of Stallone’s scenes?

“I’m old, not obsolete” – Where did the 80’s Action Heroes go?

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Matt Rodgers

Growing up in the UK’s equivalent of The Shire meant that access to the escapism of video rentals was something as distant as The Misty Mountains. The arrival of a man who looked like Stanley Uris from Stephen King’s It, driving a van that was filled to the rafters with VHS, and which glowed like the Pulp Fiction briefcase when opened, introduced me to a roll-call of the 80s Action Heroes. Monosyllabic men, who quipped their way through bullets and bodies. The first plastic case to cross my sweaty palms featured a muscular fellow, holding a gun, against a colourful heatmap backdrop. It was Predator, and that was a long time ago.

About where things began to change for the real expendables is hard to pinpoint. Why did these one-time box-office giants; Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van-Damme, and to a lesser degree Lundgren, suddenly find their powers diminishing?

The Magnificent Remake: How and Why Remade Movies Succeed and Fail

Tony Black on remakes, and how and why they success and fail…

Harking back to the days of big stars headlining even bigger films, The Magnificent Seven trailer exploded online this week showcasing the always A-list Denzel Washington alongside, among others, Hollywood’s newest megastar Chris Pratt, in a remake of the legendary 1960’s Yul Brynner headlining Western. It’s just one of a flood of remakes we’ve seen over the last decade, a tide that shows no sign of slowing down with dozens more either about to land, or in production and pre-production. Edward Gardiner here on Flickering Myth recently argued how it’s fine to enjoy remakes of the classic movies we enjoyed as children or younger adults, and while many never recapture the glory of the original they do at least bring great pictures back into the public consciousness.

‘Boyhood’, ‘Grand Budapest’, ‘Lego Movie’ Score Big At 65th Ace Eddie Awards — Complete Winners List

‘Boyhood’, ‘Grand Budapest’, ‘Lego Movie’ Score Big At 65th Ace Eddie Awards — Complete Winners List
Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel took the respective top prizes for drama and comedy tonight at the 65th American Cinema Editors Awards. Oscar snubee The Lego Movie continued to rack up awards-season wins, scoring the trophy for Best Edited Animated Feature Film, while Citizenfour added the Ace Eddie to its winning streak for documentary feature.

The ceremony, hosted by 24 actress Mary Lynn Rajskub at the Beverly Hilton, saw Grand Budapest check in with the upset win over Birdman, which was edited to look like it was shot in a single take and came into the Ace Eddies with strong momentum, having won top honors at both the PGAs and the SAG Awards last weekend. The category had the usual five nominees, but this year’s dramatic feature field was notable for a tie that resulted in six nominees — only the second time the American Cinema Editors has had to

The strange history of the Die Hard movies

The Die Hard series may be alive and well, but there's a unique story behind the writing of each one…

As any action fanatic will tell you, Die Hard is among the best films of its type ever made. Tautly directed by John McTiernan, deceptively well shot by cinematographer Jan de Bont, and full of charismatic turns from Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, it’s seldom been bettered, even by its sequels.

The key to the first film's success, and the sequels in their best moments, is hero John McClane. Tough, sarcastic but ultimately human and relatable, he cuts a very different figure from the beefed-up, larger-than-life heroes of 1980s and 90s action cinema. When John McClane gets shot or injured, he actually feels pain. It's something we were keenly aware of in the 1988 original, but gradually ebbed away as the Die Hard franchise drifted from thriller territory

Tina Fey Says Glen Coco Is a Real Person!

  • BuzzSugar
Glen Coco is not only a brief but memorable character-turned-meme in Mean Girls; he's a real person. Tina Fey recently told Entertainment Weekly that she named him after someone she actually knows! "I tried to use real names in writing because it's just easier. My older brother's good friend is Glenn Cocco. He's a film editor in Los Angeles, and I imagine it's a pain in the butt for him. Someone said to me, you could buy a shirt at Target that says 'You go, Glenn Cocco!' That was unexpected." The most mind-blowing part of this is that his name is really spelled "Cocco." How do we know? Because he has a profile on IMDb. Mr. Cocco has worked on such films as American History X, Invincible, and Get Carter. To clarify, the person shown above from the movie is actor David Reale, who plays Glen Coco, who is

Film Review: ‘John Wick’

Film Review: ‘John Wick’
There are no good guys in “John Wick,” but there are some great actors working alongside Keanu Reeves in his darkest and most tormented role yet: a stunningly lethal contract killer who goes on a rampage after a Russian thug murders his dog. Yes, his dog. If you can stomach the setup, then the rest is pure revenge-movie gold, as Reeves reminds what a compelling action star he can be, while the guy who served as his stunt double in “The Matrix” makes a remarkably satisfying directorial debut, delivering a clean, efficient and incredibly assured thriller with serious breakout potential, thanks in part to Summit’s simultaneous Imax release.

That unsung hero is Chad Stahelski, the stunt guru who stepped into Brandon Lee’s shoes on “The Crow” and spent the next two decades absorbing all the behind-the-scenes filming lessons that make “John Wick” such a technically impeccable actioner. (Stahelski

"Cell 213" Beckons...

From Stephen Kay, director of Boogeyman and Stallone’s flat Get Carter remake who went on to directing a plethora of good television, comes Cell 213, a supernatural film about a young, ambitious lawyer who finds himself on the other side of the law when he is incarcerated in the film’s titular cell. Hounded by the brute guard and the otherworldly forces of Good and Evil, a claustrophobic battle for his soul rages.

Theatre Review: An Evening With Sylvester Stallone

Image: Jonathan Brady/Pa

Featuring: Sylvester Stallone, Jonathan Ross.

Produced by: Rocco Buonvino, Joe Ricotta.

It’s quite a thing sitting in the same room as one of your idols. All sorts of questions go through your mind. What will they be like? Will they live up to your expectation? Will they epitomise the legend you imagined and would like them to be? Will they somehow acknowledge my existence in the world.

After years of seeing them on the screen worshiping the cinematic ground that they walk upon, one worries to think that they may turn out to be the complete opposite; a prize douche, headstrong and egotistic, and nowhere near the god you thought they were. This is dangerous, life-ruining stuff, and not to be taken lightly.

On Saturday evening, I and around 2000 fellow film fans braved the aforementioned trepidations, faced our fear and stepped into one of the West End,

Jonathan Ross hosting ‘An Evening with Sylvester Stallone’
TV funnyman Jonathan Ross will interview Sylvester Stallone during an eponymous ‘Evening with…’ event in central London. The chat will take place at the London Palladium on Saturday 11 January 2014. Stallone should have no shortage of industry stories, as having been an outspoken heavyweight since breaking out in the ‘70s. From his Oscar-nominated success with Rocky, through his ‘80s action heyday, his notable misfires (Get Carter, anyone?), his credible thesping (serious turns in Copland and Rocky Balboa), to his Expendables...

Top 10 Best Sylvester Stallone Movies

"I don't trust anybody, that's how you stay in the game."

At 66, Sylvester Stallone is reaching that age when most action movie stars contemplate retirement or transition into playing kindly grandfathers, grumpy old men, and butlers (no offense, Sir Michael), yet 'Sly' continues to make the kind of movies that made him famous when he was a young man. After surprising everyone but his hardcore fans with the success of his throwback action movies The Expendables 1 & 2, Stallone stumbled a bit with his solo movie Bullet to the Head, but he's got the support of great co-stars in his upcoming action movie The Tomb with Arnold Schwarzenegger and the boxing comedy Grudge Match with Robert De Niro, currently in production. The Expendables had a bigger opening weekend than any of Stallone's previous movies, but is it also his best movie? Does Barney Ross deserve a spot alongside John Rambo and Rocky Balboa?

Stephen Kay Shoots 6 Bullets From Now

Stephen Kay Shoots 6 Bullets From Now
Best known for his TV work on the likes of Sons Of Anarchy and The Shield, director Stephen Kay will next be applying his gritty aesthetic to a bigger canvas. He's signed on to direct the indie Mafia heist thriller 6 Bullets From Now, from a screenplay by Christian Darren.Not to be confused with the direct-to-video Van Damme epic Six Bullets (although Kay did direct the Stallone remake of Get Carter in 2000), 6 Bullets From Now is based on the notorious Pierre Hotel robbery of January 1, 1972."Professional thieves" Samuel Nalo and Robert Comfort enlisted a small team of Mafia goodfellas and contract killers to take advantage of the New Year celebrations at the hotel. Party-goers had left their valuable jewellery in the Pierre's lockboxes, pending return to proper bank vaults when they reopened. With the hotel running a skeleton crew for the holidays, it was therefore a relatively easy target, and

'Bullet To the Head' Trailer Goes Bang Bang

Certain members of the "Expendables" gang are pimping their other wares this week.

Earlier today, Arnold Schwarzenegger took "The Last Stand" in the first look at Kim Jee-woon's upcoming action thriller. Now, Arnold's pal Sylvester Stallone is out to prove that old dudes do it best in the trailer for "Bullet to the Head."

"Bullet" stars the Italian Stallion as a New Orleans hit man Jimmy Bobo, who seems to be the exact same character Sly played in "Get Carter" but a little less mopey (and with more tattoos). Jimmy teams up with a cop (Jason Momoa) to take down the creep who killed both their respective partners, gleefully pumping scumbags full of lead and blowing stuff up along the way — though things get more complicated (and even more personal) when Jimmy's daughter (Sarah Shahi) is kidnapped.

"Bullet" was originally set for release this past April but rumor hath it

Contraband review

Remakes are a favourite source of inspiration for Hollywood films. Sometimes they work - as with The Italian Job - and sometimes they don’t - as with Sylvester Stallone’s defiling of Get Carter. Mark Wahlberg’s new film, Contraband is a big-budget remake of the 2008 Icelandic thriller, Reykjavik-Rotterdam. However, is it a hit or a miss?

In the remake, Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday who, after a successful career as the Harry Houdini of the smuggling game, is now on the straight and narrow. Having traded in a life of crime for his wife (Kate Beckinsale), kid, and a small security business, life is generally rosy.

However, all this comes crashing down when Kate’s young brother Andy becomes embroiled in a botched drug-smuggling run. In a bid to evade the police, Andy throws several kilos of cocaine overboard, resulting in a very angry gang boss and, presumably, some very chatty fish.

Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone To Team Up For 'The Tomb'?

Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone To Team Up For 'The Tomb'?
Somewhere between “Get Carter” and “Shade” it seemed as though Sylvester Stallone’s career was over. Then, in 2006, he decided to revitalize the “Rocky” franchise and guess what? People loved it. A year later, he did the same with “Rambo.” Lightning doesn’t strike three times, right? It did for Stallone. He wisely left nothing to chance for the third go-around, and cast every B-movie action star for the mega action film “The Expendables.” Well, it appears as though Stallone’s savvy mining of his old career has paid off: he is officially a movie star again. Stallone has a film coming out in April (“Bullet to the Head”), a big budget sequel (“The Expendables 2”) arriving in August and now, his soon to be shooting action picture “The Tomb” may have a new co-star: Arnold Schwarzenegger. AICN reports that according to their souce, Sly's pal Arnold Schwarzenegger...
