Jackie Chan Explains Why He Turned Down Expendables 2 And 3

15 August 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

On the list of "shoulda-been-Expendables," Jackie Chan ranks pretty highly. He's one of the more highly-decorated members of the Action Hero Hall Of Fame, and he's done movies with several of the people in The Expendables 3, including Sylvester Stallone (Burn, Hollywood Burn: An Alan Smithee Film), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Around The World In 80 Days) and Jet Li (Forbidden Kingdom). So why hasn't he got the call to show up in any of the movies in the trilogy? Perhaps the better question is, why hasn't he answered the call? In an interview with Den Of Geek, Chan claims that while he's obviously being sought for Expendables 4, he's simply not a fan of the format of these films. "...this morning I did hear - the office called - Sly [Stallone] wants me for Expendables 4. I said, .Okay.. Because they already asked me to be in two and three, but I refused. Well, »

Movie Review: 'Blended' isn't Adam Sandler's worst subsidized vacation

22 May 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You know those real estate scams where you're offered a free vacation if you just sit through a time-share presentation and that time-share presentation seems never-ending, because even if it's just two hours, what you really wanted was a free vacation? For Adam Sandler, filmmaking is like that time-share presentation.  All the guy wants is to get major motion picture studios to subsidize his vacations. Is that so wrong? If Sony or Warner Brothers said to you, "How would you like an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii or Africa or a secluded lake? And all you have to do is deliver a movie and nobody on our side will even ask to see a script or bother looking at the final cut," what would you say? You'd accept the deal. Don't deny it.  It's obvious that Sandler and his partners-in-vacation-loving-crime don't especially enjoy the quid pro quo required for their global galavanting, »

Movie Poster of the Week: “The Horse’s Mouth” and the Notting Hill Tube Station Posters

11 April 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Though it is used (cropped and not as colorful) on the cover of Criterion Collection’s DVD, I hadn’t seen this fabulous UK quad poster for Ronald Neame’s The Horse’s Mouth until recently when I read about a wonderful discovery in a London tube station. Four years ago, workers at the Notting Hill underground station discovered a passageway that had been sealed off half a century earlier when the station had converted from elevators to escalators. Left behind in the sealed tunnel was a time capsule of late 50s graphic art in the form of movie posters and advertisements left more or less intact.

This is the kind of thing I dream about (you can see more photos here). The sealing of the tunnel can be roughly dated by the release dates of the four films advertised. The Horse’s Mouth came out in the Us in »

The Lady from Shanghai

Written and directed by Orson Welles

USA, 1947

Michael O’Hara (Orson Welles) is an Irish émigré to the United States who earns his income as a sailor. Walking the streets of Manhattan one night, he comes across the carriage of one Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth), whose beauty and charm immediately catch his eye. After rescuing her from a group of thieves in Central Park, he offers to drive her home, during which time they grow fond of one another. Lo and behold, the next day, Mr. Bannister (Everett Sloane), a notorious criminal lawyer and her husband, makes an offer: come sail with them through the Americas on their way to San Francisco. O’Hara, clearly attracted to the man’s wife but trepidatious about potential complications, reluctantly accepts the offer. The trip and its aftermath in San Francisco prove unforgettable, with everyone’s disdain for Mr. »
