‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ Exclusive Featurette: Robert Rodriguez And Others Talk The Craft of Fight Scenes

21 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 film “From Dusk till Dawn,” written by Quentin Tarantino and starring George Clooney, was a modest box office success and received mixed reviews upon release, but twenty years later, its legacy has endured. The film has become a cult favorite and has produced two direct-to-dvd sequels, a third-person shooter video game, and now a horror TV series on Rodriguez’s television network El Rey. Currently in its third season, “From Dusk till Dawn: The Series” reimagines the story of the film and follows the supernatural adventures of Seth and Richie Gecko (D. J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz). Watch a behind-the-scenes video below that examines the evolution of some of the biggest fight scenes this season.

Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

21 June 2016 11:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes DesperadoSin City, The FacultySpy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko. »

Bruce Willis: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Jan 19, 2017

Most Bruce Willis movies right now seem to head to DVD almost immediately. We've found even more of them...

This article has been updated to include two new films - Precious Cargo and Marauders.

It’s not exactly clear when Bruce Willis went from being a big star whose name filled seats and sold tickets to being a guy whose name you see on the cover of so many direct-to-dvd and VOD outings (albeit ones that sometimes get a week or two in a cinema, in essence to promote the VOD release), but I’d like to go out on a limb here and say that Kevin Smith’s mouth might be partly to blame.

30 Things We Learned from the Planet Terror Commentary

5 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“A lot of this was done at the very last minute.”

2007’s Grindhouse experiment between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino was viewed as something of a misfire upon its initial release, but in the years since it’s enjoyed something of a reappraisal. Most viewers seem to have a strong opinion as to which of the two films is best, but regardless of where you land on that point there’s no denying that Rodriguez’s Planet Terror is far more attuned to the “grindhouse” aesthetic.

Where Death Proof feels like a slickly produced Tarantino film, Planet Terror is a gloriously intentional mess of jarring cuts, cheap tropes, B-movie dialogue, and crowd-pleasing beats. It’s not great cinema, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and one of Rodriguez’s most consistently entertaining movies.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the Planet Terror commentary!

Review: All Hell Breaks Loose

17 March 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When creating exploitation movies, there’s a bit of a challenge in making them out of artistic integrity versus utilizing the genre to make generic material. When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez joined forces to create their Grindhouse project, both talents embarked on a still divisive film experience that wasn’t as commercially successful as hoped for. Tarantino’s Death Proof dabbled in the slasher genre where the weapon of choice is a car, ultimately concluding in one of the most jaw dropping car chases in film history. Rodriguez’s Planet Terror splashed the screen with buckets of blood with a logic defying world filled with celebrity cameos trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. While I adore both pieces, some people seem to favor one over the other even though they really have nothing to do with each other (despite a subtle reference to Jungle Julia in Planet Terror). It »

Hey y’all! I’m back to-

Shaun Of The Dead!” someone shouts.

Alright, alright, settle down now. Settle down. I’ve got something to tell you. A lot of you know what I’m about to say. Some of you might sense what’s coming. Regardless, let’s all take a knee.

Deep breath in.

Deep breath out. 

Okay.

Shaun Of The Dead is almost 12 years old.

I know. It hurts. We’re super old and it’s a problem. Kids who were born the day Shaun came out are in secondary school. They’ve probably hit puberty. They’re feeling weird feelings about each other that they can’t explain. Their parents are probably starting to piss them off. Their parents who are probably us. We could be the parents of »

The Star Wars ‘Grindhouse’ Trailer Is A Work Of Genius

2 February 2016 12:18 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Star Wars Grindhouse trailer: The internet does it again by re-cutting everyone’s favourite space opera into a Grindhouse trailer.

The internet has been hard at work again. Here’s the Star Wars Grindhouse trailer. Yes, the folks over at washable have recut Star Wars into trailer for to make it look like a Grindhouse movie. In other words, a cheap exploitation film with rubbish music, cheap graphics and dodgy film grading.

The Star Wars Grindhouse trailer appeared on YouTube overnight, and has so far amassed a couple of thousand views, but we expect this to go viral as it is a work of genius.

Before we play the trailer, here’s a more definitive description of the Grindhouse genre.

A grindhouse is an American term for a theater that mainly showed exploitation films. It is also a term used to describe the genre of films that played in such theatres. »
