Two Step Movie Review
Title: Two Step Director: Alex R. Johnson Starring: Skyy Moore, James Landry Hebert, Beth Broderick, Jason Douglas, Ashley Rae Spillers, Barry Tubb, Brady Coleman A small town-set indie crime drama of smartly modulated disquiet, ”Two Step” is a refreshing reminder of the abundance of talent, onscreen and off, that lies outside of the conventional cinematic production hubs of Los Angeles and New York City. A SXSW world premiere, writer-director Alex R. Johnson’s film is a slow-boil affair, marked by superb performances and a solid technical package. Baylor University wash-out James (Skyy Moore) returns home, only to have the grandmother who raised him somewhat suddenly pass away and bequeath him a five-figure inheritance. [ Read More ]

Blu-Ray Review – The Legend of Billie Jean/Anaconda/Flatliners/Last Action Hero

Mill Creek released several noteworthy Blu-ray releases on Tuesday, most of which were re-issues, but The Legend of Billie Jean makes its high-def debut. Those of you that are familiar with this film, or its practically non-existent home video presence, will realize immediately how big of a deal it is to have this film released to the Blu-ray format. The Legend of Billie Jean has always been an eighties favorite of mine. A lot of really cool movies came out during the decade, but this one always stood out. It could be that it got away with being as dark as it is, even with a PG-13 rating, or it could be it is one of Helen Slater’s few, and very best roles. I know, I know, Supergirl, The Secret of My Success, blahblahblahblah, but I genuinely consider this to be the seminal Helen Slater role. It doesn’t

Alexandra Paul Talks 'Christine', Car Movies, and Her Love of Horror Movie Fans

Alexandra Paul Talks 'Christine', Car Movies, and Her Love of Horror Movie Fans
If Laura Mulvey ever decided to write about cars, she’d have a field day with John Carpenter’s 1983 Stephen King adaptation Christine. Forget cinema’s “male gaze,” [how’s that for a reference, fellow film nerds?] she’d need to term the phrase “car gaze” as the film completely, and unabashedly, fetishes every single inch of the beautiful red 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine. The camera lingers on her every curve and shiny texture. It’s quite a thing to behold. And who better to play the female equivalent of this fetishistic gaze in the film than the stunningly beautiful, and equally talented, Alexandra Paul. Only 19 years old at the time of filming, Paul handles the “second female lead” role of Leigh like a seasoned veteran and gives horror fans a reason to hope for poor Christine’s destruction.

On the heels of the intended March 12 release date for Twilight Time’s Limited Edition Blu-ray of Christine*, FEARnet sat

Exclusive: Kenny Loggins Talks Top Gun 3D and the Lasting Power of Danger Zone
Late director Tony Scott reinvented the action movie with his 1986 classic Top Gun, which remained at the top of the box office charts for an unprecedented four months. This romantic thriller ushered in an era of MTV-style filmmaking, with its quick-cuts, non-stop action, and its chart-topping soundtrack loaded with number one hits. Its obvious that Top Gun wouldn't have been half as cool without singles such as 'Danger Zone', 'Take My Breath Away', 'Heaven in Your Eyes', and 'Playing with the Boys' helping to push forth the narrative. In fact, Tom Cruise's career defining hit is as much remembered for these songs as it is anything else.

Fully restored and converted, Top Gun 3D hit IMAX theaters for a one-week limited run last weekend, and now, the Blu-ray has come home to roost. To celebrate this newly immersive release of the ageless classic, we caught up with renowned 80s songsmith Kenny Loggins,

Cocky Flying Ace to Beat Indiana Jones at North American Box Office?

Weekend Box Office: Cocky Flying Ace Tom Cruise to surpass Raiders of the Lost Ark's Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford at the domestic box office this weekend? Tom Cruise's violent action-thriller Jack Reacher, which debuted in late December 2012, didn't turn out to be a major success at the Us / Canada box office. (See more information on Jack Reacher's worldwide box-office performance below.) On the other hand, this past Friday Cruise had a solid early 2013 North American opening -- in limited released and on 3D, no less: This early Feb. 2013 weekend, Top Gun, the Tony Scott-directed 1986 action movie that made Cruise an international superstar, is getting a 3D rerelease in North America at 300 locations. Despite the chaos caused by winter storm Nemo, on Friday the Top Gun rerelease brought in an estimated $533k according to figures found at Box Office Mojo, thus easily surpassing the Harrison Ford / Steven Spielberg

Converted to 3D Top Gun Gets a 2D Trailer

Tom Cruise in Top Gun 3D IMAX Trailer (in 2D) Tom Cruise tells Anthony Edwards: "I feel the need … The need for speed." High five. Whether you find that hip and cool, or if you feel the need to roll your eyes in disgust, thus begins the 2D trailer for the IMAX 3D rerelease of Tony Scott’s Top Gun, the bombastic 1986 action flick that solidified Cruise’s superstardom; enhanced Scott’s reputation as a master of slick and shallow filmmaking; and inspired loads of male teenagers with personality issues to join the air force of their respective countries so they could fulfill their need for aping Tom Cruise.

Top Gun 3D Confirmed for IMAX Release in February of 2013

Top Gun 3D Confirmed for IMAX Release in February of 2013
Last month, we reported that the 3D re-release of Top Gun may not happen, after the untimely death of director Tony Scott.

Top Gun 3D Rerelease and Top Gun 2 in Limbo After Tony Scott Suicide

Top Gun 3D Rerelease and Top Gun 2 in Limbo After Tony Scott Suicide
The Hollywood community was rocked in August when famed director Tony Scott committed suicide at the age of 68. The filmmaker's shocking death has halted plans for Top Gun 2, and has Paramount executives questioning whether or not they should release a 3D-converted version of the original Top Gun in theaters.

We first reported on the Top Gun 3D conversion last September, which Paramount had originally hoped to use to get fans excited for the impending sequel. Now that Top Gun 2 isn't happening, the studio doesn't want to seem insensitive or exploitative by releasing Top Gun in 3D. Insiders claim that Tony Scott responded positively to Top Gun's 3D conversion in the weeks leading up to his death.

Paramount is reportedly considering a February 2013 release for Top Gun 3D, with an exclusive one-week IMAX window before opening in standard 3D theaters. The studio, IMAX and Legend3D, the company behind the conversion,

Joseph Mazzello Amongst Cast of Indie Comedy ‘Dear Sidewalk’; Genesis Rodriguez Latest for ‘Identity Thief’

Joseph Mazzello came pretty close to being forever mired in that well-worn, curiosity-driven trap of “whatever happened to this child star?” But the Jurassic Park actor has made something of a comeback these past couple of years, thanks entirely to turns in HBO’s The Pacific and David Fincher‘s The Social Network; although this small role probably won’t get him into a spandex suit and in front of a green screen right away, it’s good to see more work come in.

Deadline reports that he, Josh Fadem (The Master), and Michelle Forbes (The Killing) are part of the cast for Dear Sidewalk, an independent comedy that has Davi Jay (Treme), Barry Tubb (Top Gun), and Roark Critchlow (Days of our Lives) signed to star. Jake Oelman is directing from a script by Jake Limbert, which follows “a young mail carrier who falls for a recently relocated divorcee on his route.

Brandon Graham’s King City: One of the Best Comics Ever

Steve Aylett has written some comics. I have read them. Yet, I haven’t felt like I read a Steve Aylett comic until I read Brandon Graham’s King City.

You may have not heard of Steve Aylett.

This is a huge compliment.

I Love King City, and it ascends to my post-nostalgia top shelf along with such titles as Planetary, Maxx, Seven Soldiers, Morrison’s New X-Men, Skyscrapers of the Midwest, Lemire’s Essex County, Warriors of Plasm, and One Piece. King City, my new shit, the best of my best of 2011 for me, the cream of the crop — the Val Kilmer and Barry Tubb. This is the one comic you need to read if you haven’t yet done so.

King City has everything. What you don’t see is just a page away, invisible, or something Graham just doesn’t think you deserve to see. It’s

Gilbert Cates Obit Pt.2: Oscar Nominations for Joanne Woodward, Sylvia Sidney, Melvyn Douglas, Gene Hackman

Gilbert Cates Obit Pt.1: Oscar Ceremony Most Frequent Producer In fact, Gilbert Cates' best film-related work took place far from the Academy Awards ceremonies. Two of his '70s movies in particular, the family dramas I Never Sang for My Father (1970) and Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams (1973), are notable both for Cates' quiet, subtle handling of the dramatic situations and for the generally masterful performances: I Never Sang for My Father featured Melvyn Douglas, Gene Hackman, and Estelle Parsons; Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams featured Joanne Woodward, Martin Balsam, and Sylvia Sidney (photo). Douglas and Woodward were nominated for Oscars, and so were Hackman and Sidney in the supporting categories (even though Hackman was as much a lead as Douglas). Douglas, Woodward, and the veteran Sidney, a first-time nominee after more than four decades in films, should have won. They lost to, respectively, George C. Scott in Patton; Glenda Jackson
