Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein ‘Truly Disgusting’ and Rose McGowan Has Something to Say About That

11 October 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Add pioneering indie filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to the list of former Harvey Weinstein associates now condemning the fallen media mogul. Rodriguez released a statement to Deadline:

“I find the behavior of Harvey Weinstein truly disgusting, both what he did and how he covered his tracks, and it makes me wonder how many others can’t come forward and tell their full story because of legal and personal intimidation. His repulsive behavior was an abuse of power. Thankfully, he’s now discovering what true power is.”

Rodriguez has a long history with Weinstein, starting with 1995’s “Four Rooms,” which was distributed by Miramax, and then franchises such as “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Faculty,” “Spy Kids,” and “Sin City,” which came out through the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films label.

However, TWC also released Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” in 2007. That film starred his then-girlfriend, Rose McGowan, who is among the scores of women who »

'Flatliners' Composer on the 'True Blood' Scene That Catapulted His Career (Exclusive)

2 October 2017 6:32 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Composer Nathan Barr isn’t a name an ordinary person would recognize, but scour his resume and one is bound to find a television show (True Blood, The Americans) or movie (Grindhouse, Hostel) they’ve obsessed over. Now, Barr is taking his talents to Flatliners, the modern remake of the 1990 sci-fi psychological horror film toplined by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon.

But Barr, who grew up in Tokyo with musical parents and spent much of his career scoring horror films, credits his experience on True Blood, in which he served as head composer for its entire seven-season run, as his breakthrough moment. 

“Ever since True Blood, things started to take off,” the 44-year-old industry vet tells Et. “As composers and in many facets of filmmaking, you always need that one person who endorses us and the phone starts ringing. When [creator] Alan Ball hired me on True Blood, that was one of those moments.”

From Grindhouse to The Deuce: A decade of disrepute

7 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ten years ago, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez released Grindhouse, a double feature of the kind of exploitation insanity so often promised on bold, in-your-face ’70s poster art, but so rarely realized in actual ’70s films. (Perhaps the most egregious example of this bait-and-switch is 1971’s Werewolves On…

Torso Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah – ‘Late Night Grindhouse’

14 August 2017 3:44 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Enter… if you dare – the bizarre world of the psychosexual mind.”

In April of 1975, the Italian horror film Torso opened at the Four Seasons Cinema at Olive and Woods Mill road where it was double feature with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre! I had tried to talk my dad into taking me to see Chainsaw when it had opened about 6 months earlier, but he refused (he was usually pretty cool about that kind of thing – but I was just 13). Finally, dad must have got sick of my begging because he drove me and a couple of buddies to the Four Seasons and dropped us off. Chainsaw ran first and it’s still the most terrifying moviegoing experience of my life. Torso wasn’t nearly a scary but it was loaded with gore and nudity (which Chainsaw was not), something I wasn’t used to, so it was kind of the perfect double feature. »

Jenna Mattison’s Directorial Debut “The Sound” Acquired, Rose McGowan Stars

27 July 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Sound”: Orion Pictures/Samuel Goldwyn Films

Jenna Mattison’s directorial debut has found a home. According to Deadline, Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films have joined forces to acquire “The Sound,” a thriller toplined by Rose McGowan.

Charmed” alumna McGowan plays a “specialist in acoustic physics [who] uses low-frequency tactile sound waves to debunk reported paranormal activities for her online blog,” the source details. “When presented a new case of a supposedly haunted subway station, she sets off to uncover the truth behind the hoax that involves a 40-year-old unexplained suicide.”

Mattison penned the script and is among the project’s producers. Her previous writing credits include “Deadly Revenge,” “For the Love of Money,” and “The Third Wish.”

McGowan made her directorial debut with “Dawn,” a short that premiered at Sundance in 2014. When we asked what advice she’d give other female filmmakers, the “Grindhouse” actress said, “Don’t wait for others to ‘let’ you make your film. Believe in yourself and your abilities and go big,” she urged. “You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by honoring your vision.” Check out this transcript of a speech McGowan gave about how to fight sexism in the film industry. “Women are in all kinds of jobs and have complex lives, so put that on the screen,” she said.

Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films have teamed up for a number of films including Ana Asensio’s “Most Beautiful Island,” a psychological thriller that won SXSW’s Grand Jury Award in the narrative feature competition, and “Barracuda,” a suspenseful drama co-directed by Julie Halperin and starring “Fargo’s” Allison Tolman.

Jenna Mattison’s Directorial Debut “The Sound” Acquired, Rose McGowan Stars was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Quentin Tarantino working on Charles Manson film

11 July 2017 1:23 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feature number nine would bring filmmaker closer to ‘retirement’.

Quentin Tarantino is understood to be working on a screenplay about the Manson Family murders.

While details of the screenplay remain under the proverbial wraps, the project appears to be unusual in that it might be based on actual figures and events from recent history, breaking from Tarantino’s tradition of fictitious characters and storylines.

The sequence of Manson Family murders in the summer of 1969 remains one of the most disturbing episodes in recent Us history.

The killings were carried out at the behest of ex-con and cult leader Charles Manson by members of his ‘family’, a commune-like collective that set up camp in California in the late 1960s.

One night in August 1969 group members slaughtered five people at the Hollywood residence of filmmaker Roman Polanski, including his then pregnant wife Sharon Tate. Manson and ‘family’ members were found guilty in 1971 and the ringleader, now 82, remains »

NYC Weekend Watch: Edgar Wright’s Favorites, ‘Thx 1138,’ Jules Dassin & More

29 June 2017 2:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list.

Grindhouse’s Biggest Hits: See the Era’s Craziest Posters

19 June 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Exploitation movies have been a staple of the film scene since the 1930s, and sleazy, risk-taking cinemas in New York City and other urban pockets reveled in screening these wild tales. Grindhouse titles encompass a litany of boundary-pushing genres, including Westerns, creature features, biker films, sex romps and Blaxploitation classics. While some lesser works haven’t stood the test of time from the ’70s and ’80s, many are bona-fide classics, including “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre,” “Pink Flamingos” and “Foxy Brown.”

‘Fargo’ Review: Carrie Coon and Ewan McGregor Bring Season 3 to an Emotional Peak in Penultimate Episode

14 June 2017 8:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 9, “Aporia”]

Immediate Reaction

If this is as close as we get to resolving The Great Carrie Coon Technology Debate of 2017, we’ll take it. Not only did “Fargo” provide a happy ending to Gloria Burgle’s rage against the machines, but the symbolic message of humanity’s warmth trumping the cold nature of technology helped close out the penultimate episode of Season 3 on a graceful note. The world may not be what we thought, but there’s still good in it.

That being said, next week remains as big a question mark as ever — the dark may very well still overwhelm the light. Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Mr. Wrench (Russell Harvard) were in control this week, but how long can a broke duo stay in front of a rich crime boss? What will Gloria’s reinvigorated resolve get her mixed up in, and, abiding by the Peter and the Wolf analogy, »

Needle in a [Comic] Haystack #3: ‘Grindhouse’

8 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Hi! Welcome back to the Needle in a [Comic] Haystack, where I tell you all about the incredible and awesome comics you’re missing out on because there is a literal ocean of them. Today we’re going to deal with a series written by Alex De Campi, with art by a bunch of different artists, called Grindhouse.

Do you remember the old grindhouse movies? They were blackspoiltation films, women-in-prisons flicks — things that were titillating, slapped together, and, well, very grindhouse-y. People have tried to emulate these old movies for years, most of the time not doing a very good job. Perhaps the most famous example of this was the Grindhouse Double Feature by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. That’s another part of Grindhouse flicks – most of them were double features.

Which brings us to De Campi’s excellent series. You might recognize the writer. She’s done tons of comics: No Mercy, »

Michael Parks Passes Away

10 May 2017 10:51 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Kevin Smith had the sad news of announcing the passing of legendary actor Michael Parks on his Instagram page today. Calling Parks his muse, he related the reaction he had of first seeing Parks in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn and telling his producer and friend Scott Mosier that he wanted to work with the Yoda of acting one day. That movie ended up being Red State. Smith also wrote a part for him in his movie Tusk. Quentin Tarantino had utilized Parks in dual roles for Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2. Robert Roderiguez of course used him as Sheriff Earl McGraw, a role Parks would reprise in Kill Bill and Grindhouse. David Lynch used him to great effect in the original Twin Peaks as the character Jean Renault.

While I can't say I liked every movie I saw Mr. Parks in, I do like his work as an actor. »

Michael Parks, 'Twin Peaks' Actor and Tarantino Favorite, Dead at 77

Michael Parks, a character actor who enjoyed a career renaissance in recent decades thanks to high profile roles in films by Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith, died Wednesday at the age of 77.

Parks' agent confirmed the actor's death to The Hollywood Reporter, though a cause of death was not revealed.

Parks made his acting debut in a small role in 1961 on the sitcom The Real McCoys, and, over the ensuing decades, racked up dozens of roles on both television and feature films, most notably as the casino owner »

Michael Parks, Beloved Character Actor and Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith Regular, Passes Away at 77

10 May 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Parks, longtime Hollywood mainstay and beloved character actor and singer, has passed away at the age of 77. The news was announced by filmmaker Kevin Smith, who took to his Instagram to share that “the best actor I’ve ever known” and his “cinematic muse,” had died. No cause of death was named.

Smith directed Parks in both his “Tusk” and “Red State,” having relished the longtime actor’s career since first seeing him in Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.” Though Parks’ career stretched back to 1960, when he made his screen debut on TV’s “Zane Grey Theater,” in recent years, the supporting standout had enjoyed a revival at the hands of both Quentin Tarantino (who Smith deemed Parks’ “biggest fan”) and Smith, who continued to craft roles for the singular actor.

I hate to report that my cinematic muse #michaelparks has passed away. Michael was, and will likely forever remain, »
