Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
That, and it’s the most motherflippin’ fun you’ll have in a theater of any kind this year, the next, and probably many to come.
Goodfellas plays midnights this weekend (September 22nd and 23rd) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. Admission is $8.
Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas is 27 years old, but I don’t think there’s been a better mob movie since. This movie does a terrific job showing the flash and allure of being a successful mobster (the cash, the respect, the twisted sense of family) and then the dark and dirty side – the graft, lies and ferocity. Ray Liotta’s fall is as rough as his rise is seductively entertaining (think Scarface, only a whole lot better) and it’s punctuated by brutal acts of violence.
Overall, a great movie; features an immersive soundtrack, half the supporting cast of The Sopranos,
The Matrix plays midnights this weekend (September 15th and 16th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
Written and directed by the Wachowski Brothers 9now sisters), The Matrix (1999) was a hug hit – a high-tech, edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding sci-fi action thriller, that everyone went back to see a second time to understand what the heck was going on! The Matrix talks about a future like no other, so technologically advanced that we don’t know if it’s real or not. Everyone is in the middle of a simulated reality to subdue the human population. A computer hacker, under the name of “Neo”, portrayed by Keanu Reeves, is drawn into this rebellion, and fight off against the machines. I’m a fan of big sci-fi action thrillers that make you pay attention throughout. The Matrix
Princess Mononoke (subtitled) plays midnights this weekend (September 8th and 9th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. The English-dubbed version will screen Saturday September 9th at 11:30am
Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke (1997) is reportedly a delightful anime from the man who has come to define everything that is best about the genre, I’ve never seen it, but Miyazaki always brings in the crowds for the midnight shows so I’m sure it’s a worthy choice. Princess Mononoke was Miyazaki’s calling card to the world outside Japan. The English voice cast boasts Billy Crudup, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Gillan Anderson and Keith David – a considerable volume of talent for an animation back in 1997 (Toy Story was 1995), arguably marking the beginning of another trend – for big names to be heard and not seen.
This star-studded, pumped up sequel to the smash hit comedy Goon is a foul-mouthed, action-packed and hilarious excursion into the wild, knock-em-out world of ice hockey that sees the original cast returning for more bone- cracking and rib-tickling mayhem.
American Pie’s legendary Stifler, Seann William Scott, is simply sensational – putting as much humour as he does pathos – as the don’t give a puck hockey star Doug Glatt (based on the life of American maverick Doug Smith) – a role he was born to play, at least twice. He’s supported here with a top drawer cast including Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Midnight In Paris, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert
Bacall, whose screenplays include 21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Project X, is suing in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to the complaint filed on Monday, Shumway has acted as Bacall's attorney since 1989 when Bacall was a child actor. The plaintiff had small roles on Small Wonder; Mr. Belvedere; Punky Brewster; Doogie Howser, M.D.; and The Wonder Years.
In the decades since, Bacall has...
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992) screens Midnights This Weekend (September 1st and 2nd) at the Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar Blvd., University City, Mo.) as part of the Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight Series.
I love when people try to write out a plot synopsis for David Lynch movies. They only sound jumbled, confusing and morbid, and though those are words synonymous with the incredible writer/director/producer, they miss the point. David Lynch isn’t the kind of filmmaker who produces a point A to point B story. He is an abstract artist painting a picture of the human condition. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me may be a depiction of the final days of Laura Palmer and a last hurrah for the beloved 1990 series (until this year’s revival), but at its heart,
The action film will forever be in its heyday, for conflict drives any narrative forward – especially when that conflict results in a showdown between two or more characters. Audiences will forever be drawn to the cinema to witness larger than life sequences, explosions and fisticuffs. Action of course comes in all sorts of forms, whether that’s an old western shootout, a superhero showdown or a kung fu brawl. Certainly, cinema has created some iconic action heroes and TV has often taken its air time to produce some quality choreographed fight sequences.
But, what sets these significant action pieces apart from the groan worthy cinematic beat-downs that we have all sat through at one time? Are we actually settling for mediocre action pieces and rewarding them with our attention? This feature will attempt to tackle these questions for mainstream cinema and TV.
Forget the Eclipse! The wait is almost over. The St. Louis movie event of the summer is this weekend! The Room screens Midnights This Weekend (August 25th and 26th) at the Tivoli – with Tommy Wiseau in Person (!!!) as part of the Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight Series. All seats $15.00, no passes.
There will be thousands of plastic spoons flying through the air in the Tivoli’s main screen this weekend. Grown men in tuxedoes will be throwing footballs three feet away from each other in the Tivoli’s lobby. What’s going on and who will that strange man with the sunglasses, odd accent and black stringy hair be that everyone will be crowded around?
Our city is bracing itself for the arrival of the one and only Tommy Wiseau! St. Louis-area fans of The Room

“Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and “The World’s End” were all popular with critics and die-hard Wright fans, but they weren’t exactly box office smashes. Only “Scott Pilgrim” had made it above the $30 million mark before “Baby Driver’s” breakout success. To say Wright is overjoyed would be the understatement of the year.
“I honestly didn
The Shining (1980) screens midnights this weekend (August 18th and 19th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.
Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, The Shining (based on the Stephen King novel) creates some of the most genuine spine chills ever filmed. Taking a job as a winter caretaker for a giant and remote hotel, Jack Nicholson, his wife Shelley Duvall, and his son Danny Lloyd, find that the long hallways and empty rooms contain more than a few ghosts. The film goes back and forth from scary to amusing as Jack, meticulously pacing his part, slowly turns into a psychopath, taking an axe to his loved ones. Kubrick’s use of space
Considering their alchemy, it’s little wonder the duo reteamed for “The Glass Castle,” an adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ 2005 memoir about her severe family dysfunction.

Mary Harron, Kim Nguyen (both pictured above), Ingrid Veninger, and Denis Côté are among the familiar names in the 26-strong Canadian Features slate that Toronto International Film Festival programmers unveiled on Wednesday.
The selection comprises the highest number of feature directorial debutants and films from Western Canada in recent years. More than 30% of the titles are by first-time feature directors.
Festival brass also announced Short Cuts, Tiff Cinematheque, Rising Stars, Telefilm Canada Pitch This! finallists, and the recipient of the 2017 Len Blum Residency.
The 42nd Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 7-17.
“It is exciting to see a new wave of Canadian first-time feature directors play with genres and take risks,” Tiff senior programmer Steve Gravestock said. “This year’s line-up has a truly international feel to it, too, with a number of features shot all over the globe — something that also
Another terrific lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ to end the 2017 season. It’s a typically good variety of titles that should draw the late night movie buff crowd with a couple of retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. Rocky Horror Picture Show with live shadow cast with the Samurai Electricians ends the new schedule on Oct. 20-21 and Oct. 27-28 . The oldest film this time is Poltergeist from 1980 and the most recent is Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World from 2010. There’s a Miyazaki (Princess Mononoke) thrown in there for attendance insurance (theses always pack ‘em in) and a handful of standards including The Matrix. I believe Goodfellas, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and Re-animator
Back as hockey star Doug Glatt, Scott is supported here with cast that includes Liev Schreiber (Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Callum Keith Rennie (Californication), with 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell as Glatt’s nemesis, and Deadpool’s T. J. Miller on scene-stealing form as inappropriate sports commentator Chad Bailey.
From the press release:
An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love – crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy

“Baby Driver” has been in theaters for just over two weeks now and it’s already grossed over $60 million and counting, an impressive total for a movie made for just $34 million. It’s also the highest grossing U.S. release of Wright’s career thus far, already doubling the gross of his last biggest movie “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” The movie stars Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver whose last job spirals out of control.
In the six-minute opening scene, embedded below, the titular Baby jams out to Jon Spencer Blues Explosion‘s “Bellbottoms” while evading the police and driving three bank-robbing criminals to safety.
