Christmas Action Movies If You Love Die Hard

Christmas Action Movies If You Love Die Hard
For many years in cinema we thought of movies in a very linear way. Action movies were action movies, comedies were comedies, romantic dramas were... you get the gist. Sure, a comedy might have action here and there, but by and large you were laughing not seeing some heavy getting his face blown to bits. Over time this medium has evolved and now we will often see all the aforementioned genres mixed together to make a film that literally doesn't have a place. Is it action? Drama? Suspense? Romantic comedy?

This whole debate gets thrown into an even bigger tailspin when we start throwing holidays into the mix. And the one holiday that seems to have crossed more genres than any is that of Christmas. I'm not saying that you'll have a heist movie and suddenly Santa shows up with his reindeer and a bunch of elves (although that can

King Kong (1976)

King Kong  (1976)
Dino De Laurentiis took a lot of flack for his underwhelming remake of the incomparable 1933 horror classic, which he promoted into a monster-sized hit. Nothing could eclipse the original but the good casting still appeals. An honest ad campaign would have leaned on two points: See Jeff Bridges and Charles Grodin carry an insultingly ugly production like real stars! See ‘newcomer’ Jessica Lange play a sexualized ditz so well that she retains her dignity! …and most importantly, See the biggest special effects fraud ever perpetrated on movie screens! Umbrella Entertainment from Australia puts this one back in print, on Blu-ray.

Burt Reynolds in The Longest Yard Screening at The Wildey Theater in Edwardsville January 28th

” The most important thing to remember is: to protect your quarterback – Me!”

Burt Reynolds in The Longest Yard (1974) will be screening at The Wildey Theater in Edwardsville, Il at 7pm Tuesday, January 28th. Admission is $2.

Hollywood veteran director Robert Aldrich gave Burt Reynolds one of his biggest hits – and best roles – in this seriocomic tale of prison life and football. On the surface, the character of Paul Crewe is fairly despicable – he is a smartass, a drunk, and a violent malcontent not above mistreating women. But Reynolds not only makes us like Crewe, he makes us actually root for him to find redemption. With Eddie Albert and Ed Lauter as the villains, and wonderful character performances from Richard Kiel, Michael Conrad, Bernadette Peters, and many others, Yard doesn’t gloss over its portrayal of prison society. The hard life often explodes in violence, racial tensions abound, and then there’s the warden’s secretary.

All-American race car mania is alive and well in this excellent Jeff Bridges movie, a true biographical story researched by Tom Wolfe.

A Cujo Remake Wouldn't Work According to Star Dee Wallace

Recently Orion and director Lars Klevberg released their remake of Tom Holland and Don Mancini's Child's Play upon the masses. Now, I don't know about you guys, but the film more than proved to all of us here at Movieweb that sometimes a horror flick remake can really hit the nail on the head. But today we have word via E.T. and The Howling actress Dee Wallace that she doesn't think a remake of Stephen King's Cujo would work. Not only that but the 70-year-old actress has no interest in seeing or taking part in any new version.

"There's nothing more I could do with that part than I did. I went as far as I could go, as truthfully in that emotion as I could do it. And then they'd want to do the dog in CGI, which the fans [would not like]."

Along with her above-mentioned roles in Steven Spielberg's E.

Burt Reynolds Tribute This Weekend at The Skyview Drive-In – Smokey And The Bandit and The Longest Yard

Burt is gone, but his movies live on! This weekend, the Skyview Drive-In in downtown Belleville, Il, will pay tribute to the late superstar Burt Reynolds with a double feature of two of his best films!

At 8pm is Smokey And The Bandit

Ever wonder what the second highest grossing film of 1977 was, after Star Wars?Redneck bad boys were all the rage in ’77. Cars were still made in Michigan and Cb radios were the hot technology with phrases like “10-4 good buddy” familiar expressions and Smokey And The Bandit captured that side of American culture as well as any film.The plot of Smokey And The Bandit was merely an excuse for the many car chases and gags that comprised the thin story, which is about Bandit (Burt Reynolds) and his buddy Cledus (aka: “Snowman”. – Jerry Reed) attempting to win a bet. They have to drive from Georgia to Arkansas,

The New Centurions

Joseph Wambaugh’s breakthrough novel went through a blender to fit George C. Scott into the narrative, but it’s still a great cop show with terrific work from Stacy Keach and Scott Wilson, not to mention Jane Alexander and Rosalind Cash. The pro-cop agenda has a definite tone of personal experience, and the grim finish is anything but feel-good puffery.

Lee Marvin Died 29 Years Ago Today – Here Are His Ten Best Films

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Lee Marvin rose through the ranks of movie stardom as a character actor, delivering mostly villainous supporting turns in many films before finally graduating to leading roles. Regardless of which side of the law he was on however, he projected a tough-as-nails intensity and a two-fisted integrity which elevated even the slightest material. Born February 19, 1924, in New York City, Marvin quit high school to enter the Marine Corps and while serving in the South Pacific was badly wounded in battle when a machine gun nest shot off part of his buttocks and severed his sciatic nerve. He spent a year in recovery before returning to the U.S. where he began working as a plumber. The acting bug bit after filling in for an ailing summer-stock actor and he studied the art at the New York-based American Theater Wing. Upon making his debut in summer stock,

It Came From The Tube: Satan’S Triangle (1975)

No, this title doesn’t refer to being the last one to arrive in music class and getting stuck with the lamest of instruments to play. Satan’s Triangle (1975) is a creepy, seafaring TV tale of supernatural mystery with an ending that absolutely kills. You may think the title tells all, and the journey can’t quite supplant the destination, but oh boy, what a destination. You’re going to need your sea legs for this finale.

For those not familiar with The Bermuda Triangle, aka The Devil’s Triangle, it is an area of water loosely configured between Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and Florida that was privy to many disappearances – boats, planes, and people. And back in the ‘70s, long before the internet, the only information to go on about this and other phenomena (Hey Bigfoot!) was provided by speculative quasidocumentaries, scientific journals dispelling the myths, and TV fodder such as Satan’s Triangle.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Magic (1978)

It’s the eyes, isn’t it? Wide like saucers and twice as deep, they’re impenetrable. And the wooden leer of the wide open maw betrays them, separate and with its own agenda. Of course I’m referring to ventriloquist dummies, and the eerie spell they cast upon the viewer. The horror viewer, specifically; we’ll seek out anything that gives us a sense of unease. Which brings us to Richard Attenborough’s Magic (1978), a wryly creepy tale of encroaching madness and showbiz folly. (Aren’t they the same thing?)

Produced by 20th Century Fox and Joseph E. Levine (Carnal Knowledge) and released by 20th Century, Magic opened in November of ’78 in the U.S. and rolled out to the rest of the world in early ’79. Grossing nearly $24 million U.S. against a $7 million budget with positive reviews to boot, Magic was an unqualified success – with one of the

Happy 80th Burt-day to Burt Reynolds! – Here Are His Ten Best Movies

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Travis Keune, and Tom Stockman

Burt Reynolds, one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite actors, turns 80 today. Happy Birthday Burt!

On February 11th, 1936, Reynolds was born in Waycross, Georgia, before his family moved to Jupiter Florida, where his father served as Chief of Police. Young Burt excelled at sports and played football at Florida State University. He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts) before injuries sidelined his football career. He dropped out of college and headed to New York with dreams of becoming an actor. There he worked in restaurants and clubs while pulling the odd TV job or theater role. Burt was spotted in a New York City stage production of Mister Roberts and signed to a TV contract and eventually had recurring roles in such shows as Gunsmoke (1955), Riverboat (1959) and his own series, Hawk

What do you get if you remake a movie, but in truth make it more of a sequel to the original? The answer is The Town that Dreaded Sundown, a film that ends up being a likeable oddity, even if a little generic in terms of being a horror…

65 years after a masked serial killer terrorised the small town of Texarcana, the killing returns to strike again. Jami (Addison Timlin) a victim who manages to escape his initial attack becomes obsessed with discovering who the killer is. Is it a copycat killer?
