  • Variety
If there’s a common theme weaved throughout the 2018 Nashville Film Festival, it’s a strong sense of diversity. With submissions from more than 135 countries and female filmmakers making up more than 40% of the film bracket, in addition to several films led by African-Americans and those who defy gender norms, filmmakers from wide-ranging backgrounds are turning to the Nashville Film Festival as an outlet to share their voices.

Review: "The Long Riders" (1980); Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By John M. Whalen

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Walter Hill’s “The Long Riders,” (1980) is an account of the last days of the legendary James-Younger outlaw gang. The film starts with a botched bank job, in which one of the gang, Ed Miller (Dennis Quaid), gets nervous and shoots an unarmed customer. There’s more shooting and they manage to get away but everyone agrees Ed’s got to go. It’s the first indication of trouble—the first sign that the gang’s best days may be behind them. The rest of the film follows the trajectory of their decline, as they attract the attention of the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and make a disastrous attempt to rob a bank in Northfield, Minn.

The Long Riders” is praiseworthy for trying to be something other than just another shoot-em-up western. But it’s a movie with a gimmick

Entertainment News: ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ Glen Campbell Dies at 81

Nashville – Glen Campbell had many acts in his long career – sought after session guitarist, singer, TV & movie star and country personality – but his greatest contribution to culture may be the 2011 public announcement of his Alzheimer’s disease, and the documentary about the condition, “I’ll Be Me.” Campbell died on August 8th, 2017. He was 81.

The amiable persona he built as a pop music star was amplified by his variety show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” which ran on CBS-tv from 1969 to 1972. The show opened every week with his hit song “Gentle on My Mind,” and featured the good time personality of Campbell interacting with the guests and musical acts, which included an eclectic mix of artists like Ray Charles, The Monkees, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, The Righteous Brothers, Liza Minnelli and Tom Jones. And this was all before his signature song, “Rhinestone Cowboy,” became an unlikely number one hit in

Sylvester Stallone To Direct Adam Driver In Tough As They Come

Though Sylvester Stallone’s currently putting the pieces together for another big, loud, dumb outing of The Expendables, it seems that he’s also made time for something quite different. That’s because he’ll be developing an adaptation of Travis Mills’ bestselling memoir Tough as They Come. Deadline’s reporting tonight that he’ll get behind the camera to direct with The Force Awakens‘ Adam Driver set to star in the lead role.

Potentially giving the actor the chance to court some awards attention once it releases, Tough as They Come will see him playing United States Army Staff Sergeant Mills, “one of only five soldiers to survive a quadruple amputation from a battlefield injury.” The bulk of the film will revolve around Mills’ relationship with his father-in-law, “who stood by his side from the day he got home from the hospital.”
