Only Lovers Left Alive Blu-Ray Review

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m not sure what’s worse, sparkling vampires or hipster vampires. Alright, totally kidding, because there’s not a single Twilight comparison throughout Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, and dammit if Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston aren’t the coolest vampires this side of Brooklyn. I mean, Hiddleston’s character Adam wears sunglasses at night, writes music he never wants heard, and collects vintage guitars no one will ever see – he’s about one patch of ill-advised facial hair and a fedora away from being the King of all who couldn’t care less.

Honestly, what did you expect from a Jarmusch film about vampires? Every horrific aspect is so underplayed, akin to an indie rock band who appear to have begrudgingly taken the stage, but just like how lethargic rockers amass monster crowds by seemingly ignoring them, that’s how Swinton and Hiddleston charm their way into our hearts. »

6 Filmmaking Tips from Jim Jarmusch

8 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As many successful American filmmakers who get their start in independent filmmaking quickly find themselves comfortable in Hollywood studios, Jim Jarmusch feels like the anachronism that the economics of filmmaking rarely find room for but the culture of cinema certainly needs. After making the No Wave-era Permanent Vacation on the seemingly post-apocalyptic landscape of a crumbling late-70s New York, Jarmusch made waves at the then-young Sundance film festival with Stranger Than Paradise, a bare bones indie that exhibited the director’s penchant for deliberate pacing, wry humor, an insistent soundtrack and a canted examination of Americana. Jarmusch’s productions are few and far between, partly due to the fact that he is ever in want of funding and seeks final cut on all his films. The process may be difficult, but it’s worth it: thirty years after Paradise, Jarmusch crafted Only Lovers Left Alive (recently released on disc and digital), a film that surprised me »

'Spider-Man 2', 'Only Lovers Left Alive', 'Y Tu Mama Tambien' and More On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

19 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 For as much as everyone on the Internet claims to hate this movie it will be interesting to see how well it does in DVD and Blu-ray sales. Personally, while I didn't love The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I also didn't hate it with all the fiery passion everyone else seems to have, but hey, what can you doc It clearly has contributed to the sinking of the franchise as Sony attempts to refocus and move their attention from the webslinger for a while and over to films spinning off from this latest attempt at creating a franchise.

Only Lovers Left Alive One of the best films of 2014 and one I was recently asked if it was worth a blind buy. That's a tough one, but I think it's safe to say that if Only Lovers Left Alive, a "laughing quietly to myself" film about modern day »

Fright At Home Spotlight: The Sacrament!

19 August 2014 1:10 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Hitting shelves today, is everything from the Jim Jarmusch vampire flick, Only Lovers Left Alive and Scream Factory’s new Bluray of Leviathan, to the focal point of this Fright At Home article, Ti West’s Jonestown-like thriller, The Sacrament. Having already had the chance to check out the Magnet-released disc of The Sacrament, we thought we’d give you fright fanatics the verdict on whether or not you should spend your hard earned cash on this one, and well, the truth is…you should.

The Movie:

Quite easily West’s most realized film to date, The Sacrament injects indie-darlings Aj Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Amy Siemetz and many others into a fictional account loosely based on the Jonestown massacre of 1978. Revolving around a group of reporters from Vice seeking out the sister (Siemetz) of one their photographers after receiving an odd letter, giving off the impression that she might be involved in a cult, »

18 August 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For the third week of August, there are a handful of great horror and sci-fi titles being released this week on DVD and Blu-ray including Jim Jarmusch’s stunning vampire love story Only Lovers Left Alive, Ti West’s The Sacrament, Scream Factory’s high definition release of Leviathan and much more.

Spotlight Titles:

Only Lovers Left Alive (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Blu-ray & DVD)

The tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) who hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts. »

"Only Lovers Left Alive"

What's It About? Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star as gorgeous, globe-trotting vampire lovers in this delectable treat from writer/director Jim Jarmusch

Why We're In: As Adam and Eve, Hiddles is the mopey yin to Swinton's yang. The costumes and production design are to die (or live forever) for. John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, and Jeffrey Wright shine in smaller roles. In a word, it's gorgeous.

Soundtracking: Only Lovers Left Alive

18 August 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

One of the most musical films of 2014 is making its way to blu ray and DVD tomorrow as Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive gets the home video treatment.

Devoid of sexy, big-name musical icons and indie buzz bands alike, Only Lovers Left Alive finds its musicality from an interesting source: the film’s settings. Bouncing back and forth between Tangiers, Morocco and Detroit, the film pays homage to the musical fabric of both cities and bridges it, through the main characters (vampires, portrayed by Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston) and their love and perfection of music over the course of eternity.

The musical fabric of Detroit is pretty easy to pin down for the educated and casual fan alike: the most obvious connection being the Motown label, or perhaps Jack White and his 21st Century bluesman ways. But beyond those two pillars, or perhaps between them there is »

'Thor' Star Tom Hiddleston Wanted for the Lead in 'Ben-Hur'

12 August 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Hiddleston is reportedly the top choice for MGM, Paramount Pictures and director Timur Bekmambetov to star in their Ben-Hur remake as the title character.

While it isn't known if an official offer has been extended to the actor yet, Tom Hiddleston is reportedly mulling over other projects such as MGM's Me Before You.

We first reported on the project back in January 2013, when MGM picked up the spec screenplay by Keith R. Clarke (The Way Back) after the studio emerged from its bankruptcy troubles with hits such as Skyfall and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The script is reportedly much more faithful to the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, which is currently in the public domain, centering on the early years of Judah Ben-Hur and Messalla, who were best friends as children before the Roman Empire conquered Jerusalem. After Messalla leaves for five years to be educated, he mocks his former friend's religion, »

Anne Rice's 'The Vampire Chronicles' Brings Its Bite Back to the Big Screen

8 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In case you haven't heard, vampires are cool again. They're haunting art houses in movies like "Only Lovers Left Alive" and the upcoming Iranian film "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night," not to mention "True Blood." Now Universal is getting into the fang-bangin' game with its acquisition of Anne Rice's series of novels, "The Vampire Chronicles." The deal encompasses everything from 1976's "Interview with the Vampire" and Christopher Rice's screenplay for "Tale of the Body Thief," to any future fang-tastic novels Rice might pen.

Although Rice had given up on vampires for a while, she's back in the bloody saddle again with "Prince Lestat," which is coming out just in time for Halloween. It will also be a handy way to jumpstart Rice's momentum. For a lot of us, Anne Rice is the O.G. author of the modern vampire novel, but she's also written about witches, werewolves, »

Toronto: Explore the Dark Side of Jim Jarmusch at Tiff

25 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Only Lovers Left Alive might be maverick director Jim Jarmusch’s only legitimate horror film—in that it tells the tale of genuinely undead, fanged vampires—but a closer look at the New York-based filmmaker’s eccentric, personal body of work, exposes the kind of dark observations about humanity that every good genre movie trades in.

24 July 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Two years after it first debuted, Oscar-nominated Kon-Tiki will finally be seen by UK cinemagoers.

Soda Pictures has acquired the UK-Eire rights to Kon-Tiki from the Weinstein Company.

The film will be released in the UK on December 19, with a special presentation at the Curzon Mayfair cinema in London.

Based on a true story, the historical drama centres on the 1947 expedition by Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl who travelled on a raft across the Pacific Ocean to prove that Polynesians had South American roots.

The film was shot in both English and Norwegian and went on to be a major box office success in Norway, critically acclaimed around the world and nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and European Film Award.

It won four Norwegian Academy Awards including the People’s Choice Award for the two directors, Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. It was produced by Jeremy Thomas and Aage Aaberge.
