There’s Reason to Be Excited About The ‘Escape from New York’ Remake

With Robert Rodriguez behind the camera, at least.

Everyone hates remakes. As film-critic people, we are obligated to hate remakes and reboots ever more. Remember Ben-Hur with Morgan Freeman? Remember Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes (2001)? But I’m can’t help but get excited about the remake of John Carpenter’s Escape from New York (1981) that 20th Century Fox is starting to get the ball actually rolling on. For one, Carpenter remains on hand as executive producer, which kind of makes the director and now-prolific rock star look like a father watching kid’s play with his old toys. Carpenter hasn’t done anything, movie-wise, in almost decade so it’s nice to see that he’ll be somewhere behind a camera sometime soon. Last year, he announced that he’d be also be on hand to help helm currently-hip Blumhouse Production’s first take on the ninth Halloween movie. So

'Everybody Wants Some': Meet Breakout Star Glen Powell

'Everybody Wants Some': Meet Breakout Star Glen Powell
Maybe you knew a guy like Finnegan in high school or college: smart, charming, funny and irritatingly good at everything from nabbing pop flys on the baseball diamond to picking up young women at a night club. He's a jock, for sure, but not the kind of bro that turned house parties into an instant toxic dump of Xy-chromosome douchery. He could get away with faux-worldly affectations like a pipe or quoting Kerouac at keggers. Even among alpha males, this guy was admired as a cut above the rest. If

'El Mariachi' Actor Peter Marquardt Dies at 50

Peter Marquardt, who played the white-suited drug lord Moco in Robert Rodriguez's 1992 classic El Mariachi and its first sequel, has died, a funeral home in Austin confirmed Sunday. He was 50. Marquardt died July 19, a spokeswoman at the Cook-Walden/Forest Oaks Funeral Home and Memorial Park said. No cause of death was immediately available. In addition to showing up in flashback in Desperado (1995), the middle film in Rodriguez's stylishly violent "Mexico Trilogy," Marquardt appeared in the writer-director's 2003 film Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003) and in the 2011 film The Shadow People.

Schwarzenegger vs. Stallone: A Timeline

Schwarzenegger vs. Stallone: A Timeline
It's finally happening. Twenty years after people stopped asking for it, the first movie headlined by both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone arrives in theaters today. A decade ago, seeing both of their names on the same theater marquee seemed like an impossible dream. Ah-nuld was about to become the governor of California. Stallone was about to win a Razzie for Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over. One was moving away from acting, while the other was fading into obscurity. But like Rocky Balboa and the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Series 800, both actors refused to go away for good. Sure, in Escape Plan, Arnie and Sly look like melting wax figures of their formerly sculpted selves, but make no mistake: This is a momentous day in Hollywood history. To see what it took to get here, Vulture put together a timeline tracking the cantankerous, spiteful, jokey, and now cuddly relationship between Hollywood's

Selena Gomez Turns 20 -- See Her Through The Years!

  • TooFab
What a face! The adorable (and beautiful) Selena Gomez gained wide fame on the hit Disney show "Wizards of Waverly Place," but has grown into a bonafide movie star and recording artist. Oh yeah, she has the most famous boyfriend in the world -- some kid named Justin Bieber. To help us celebrate the young (and rising) star’s 20th birthday, our friends at Snakkle.com take a look back at Selena’s rise to fame, starting from her earliest pics.There is cute, and there is made-for-fame cute. Selena is the latter, showing an impish grin in a family pic. Though she has success today, she didn’t have an easy early childhood. Her mom had her at age 16 and they “lived paycheck to paycheck” using quarters for gas. Things turned around for Selena after she was cast on "Barney and Friends."Click to see all the pre-fame photos of Selena Gomez at Snakkle.

Blu-ray Review: Spy Kids: All the Time in the World

It’s been almost a decade since Robert Rodriquez seemed to conclude his Spy Kids trilogy with Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, with the stories of Juni and Carmen Cortez (Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega) reaching their conclusion in a star-studded adventure presented in crude anaglyphic 3-D – pre-dating the current craze. Yet following the recent Avatar-led 3D boom, the series has returned for a fourth time, the result being Spy Kids: All the Time in the World - marketed as the first “4D” film, with scratch and sniff cards (dubbed “aroma-scope”) providing the fourth dimension.

However the fourth dimension is not smell at all but time – and that is what the film is all about: how little time we have, how precious it is and what we should really do with it.

With the old spy kids all grown up it’s time for Rodriquez to introduce a new pre-teen crime-fighting double-act,

New Release: Spy Kids 4 DVD and Blu-ray

  • Disc Dish
Release Date: Nov. 22, 2011

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray/DVD Combo with Blu-ray 3D bonus $39.99

Studio: The Weinstein Company/Anchor Bay Home Entertainment

The fourth movie in Robert Rodriguez’s (Machete) action franchise, Spy Kids: All the Time In the World didn’t wow fans at the box office. The family film grossed only $36 million, a far cry from the $111.8 million Spy Kids 3: Game Over earned in theaters.

But Spy Kids 4 has plenty of pedigree. Written and directed by Rodriguez, the movie stars Jessica Alba (Little Fockers) as a retired secret agent who’s called back to stop the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven, TV’s Entourage). But Alba also has to deal with a baby and her two intelligent twin step-children (Rowan Blanchard and Mason Cook). They get help, of course, from the two former spy kids (Alexa Vega of From Prada to Nada and Daryl Sabara, Machete), as well as their dog Argonaut (Ricky Gervais,

Film: Movie Review: Spy Kids: All The Time In The World In 4D

It’s hard to believe it’s been eight years since the last Spy Kids adventure, 2003’s Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over. In that respect, director Robert Rodriguez is a victim of his success. Between subsequent Hollywood attempts to create a new kiddie super-spy franchise (see: Agent Cody Banks) and Spy Kids-style kids’ films from Rodriguez like The Adventures Of Shark Boy And Lavagirl and Shorts, pint-sized special agents have been only slightly less ubiquitous on the big screen than their adult counterparts. How are we supposed to miss the Spy Kids franchise when it feels like it ...

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D – review

There's a bad smell emanating from Robert Rodriguez's return to a moribund franchise – and it's not just the Aroma-scope

It looked so final. In 2003 Robert Rodriguez appeared to call time on his Spy Kids franchise with the definitively titled Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over – credibility intact after a trio of genuinely funny, non-icky children's movies. Now he's back with a fourth, and sadly it's all fart jokes and smart-alec preteens – the stuff that can make taking kids to the pictures a chore. Jessica Alba stars as a retired spook recalled to the service with her baby and stepkids in tow. Ricky Gervais is particularly irritating as the voice of a robot dog, and the whole thing really is miserably unfunny. Presumably as a distraction (and borrowing from the William Castle school of gimmickry) it's presented in Aroma-scope. So, along with 3D specs, audiences will be given scratch'n'sniff cards with

Robert Rodriguez Talks Spy Kids 4-d!

Spy Kids 4-d director Robert Rodriguez raised eyebrows when he announced his plans to borrow the inspiration of John Waters and his 1981 comedy Polyster with its Odorama scratch and sniff cards. After reintroducing the 3D format in 2003 with Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, Rodriguez told The Hollywood Reporter he wanted to make the fourth installment in the family film franchise as interactive as possible. Adding AromaScope and allowing kids in the theaters to smell what the characters smell felt like the perfect update. “4D was because we really pushed the envelope with 3D back like eight years ago and reintroduced 3D to audiences,” Rodriguez said.

Tron: Legacy and Spy Kids 3D mashup trailer

HollywoodNews.com: A close friend of mine put this up, so thank goodness I actually liked it… It mashes a Tron: Legacy trailer, fashioned off the first terrific teaser and uses Spy Kids 3: Game Over footage. Aside from a bit of awkward George Clooney as Bruce Boxleitner dubbing, it’s pretty successful. More importantly, as someone who really hated Tron: Legacy, this made me laugh my ass off.

Considering that Rodriguez’s 2003 sequel cost just $39 million, it’s almost offensive how much more exciting, colorful and imaginative the film was than the $200 million would-be franchise reboot that was positioned as ‘the next big thing’. Spy Kids 3D has some issues (too little of our adult stars for one), but it’s a stunningly exciting bit of family-friendly action filmmaking and it’s ahead-of-its-time 3D work still holds up, even if it is the last of the old-fashioned red-and-blue technique.

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: August 2, 2011

DVD Links: DVD News | Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed

The best thing on the board this week isn't one of the top featured titles, instead it's The Godfather and The Godfather Part II in a Two-Pack Blu-ray release for only $19.99. It's in the "Even More" section following the first two titles or you can click here and just buy it now. Unless you own them already... why wouldn't you? That's a solid deal and you don't even have to justify buying the trilogy, which is comparatively priced at $48.89. Is The Godfather Part III really worth $28.90? I don't think so.

Rio I look at the 72% RottenTomatoes rating for this film and am just baffled. Rio is a half-rate Finding Nemo meets Madagascar (the latter of which I truly dislike) and when it does attempt to be something special it comes up lacking. You can read my full theatrical review right here,

Blu-Ray Review: Catch Up With ‘Spy Kids’ Trilogy in HD Before Upcoming Sequel

Chicago – Before you spend your hard-earned cash taking the entire family to see “Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World,” you might as well catch up with the original “trilogy,” the very-popular series of films that most of us assumed were the end of this mediocre franchise.
