Drive-In Dust Offs: 10 To Midnight (1983)

Horror was so prevalent and popular in the early ‘80s that even the action genre wanted in on the…uh, action. Chuck Norris haiyah’ed a Michael Myers wannabe in Silent Rage (1982), so next up it was granite faced Charles Bronson’s turn to take on slashers with 10 to Midnight (1983), a sleazy yet fascinating trip through the mind of a serial killer. While it’s never as deep as it thinks it is, it’s smarter than it has any right to be.

Released in March, this Cannon production, co-distributed by MGM, recouped its 4.5 million plus a few million more at the box office. Certainly not Death Wish numbers, but it’s not really a Death Wish type of film (until it is). As for the critics, Mr. Ebert called it “a scummy little sewer of a movie”. He’s not completely right, though; the misogynistic male gaze is upended

From VHS to VOD #3

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

Originally on Health.com

If you are a devotee of St. Ives Apricot Scrub, you may be wondering if you should switch to another face wash now that it’s the subject of a class action lawsuit.

Blu-ray Review – Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970)

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, 1970.

Directed by Russ Meyer.

Starring Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers, Marcia McBroom, John Lazar, Duncan McLeod, Michael Blodgett, Erica Gavin, Phyllis Davis, Edy Williams, Harrison Page, David Gurian, Jim Inglehart, Charles Napier.

Synopsis:

An all-girl rock band arrive in Hollywood with dreams of stardom but find themselves sucked into a world of decadent and debauched behaviour.

The 1960s is a decade that many films have depicted in various ways, thanks to the transgressive fashions, politics and art that made the era what it was, but all too often these are films that were made afterwards that look back through rose-tinted glasses. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls went into production in the closing weeks of 1969 and neatly summed up a time, place and attitude that reflected the whole decade, beginning with the innocence of youth and good intentions before sinking into the depravity of sex,

Review: “St. Ives” (1976) Starring Charles Bronson And Jacqueline Bisset; Warner Archive Streaming Service

  • CinemaRetro
By Don Stradley

Charles Bronson was 55 at the time of “St Ives” (1976). He was just a couple years past his star-making turn in “Death Wish”, and was enjoying a surprising run of success. I say surprising because Bronson had, after all, been little more than a craggy second banana for most of his career. Now, inexplicably, he had box office clout as a leading man. In fact, Bronson reigned unchallenged for a few years as the most popular male actor in international markets. Yes, even bigger than Eastwood, Newman, Reynolds, Redford, or any other 1970s star you can name. Many of Bronson’s movies were partly financed by foreign investors, for even if his movies didn’t score stateside, they still drew buckets of money in Prague or Madrid. Some have suggested that his popularity on foreign screens was due to how little he said in his movies (there was

10 Comics to Watch: Grace Helbig Makes Leap from YouTube to Bigscreen
When Grace Helbig and My Damn Channel parted ways, it felt like the end of “Daily Grace,” Helbig’s popular daily vlog. But it was just the beginning of bigger things.

At 28, Helbig became a multiplatform entrepreneur, launching her own YouTube channel, It’s Grace, which after six months has 1.8 million subscribers. This led to six-figure deals with St. Ives and Windows phone, the indie feature “Camp Takota,” and now a pitch for a series at E!

Helbig’s winning personality (literally — she won Personality of the Year at the 2013 Streamys) and willingness to take fan suggestions and make herself look goofy are keys to her success.

Grace Helbig Gets Branded As The Queen Of St. Ives

As the strong sales of Camp Takota proved, Grace Helbig has a dedicated online following, and that makes her a valuable spokeswoman. Helbig, who is one of YouTube's top vloggers, has starred in a branded video for skincare brand St. Ives. In the video, Helbig is crowned the Queen of St. Ives and frolics about in a magical world filled with lotion waterfalls. It is St. Ives' first YouTube video, and his has received universal praise; at the time of this post, it has received 13,571 likes and just 40 dislikes. The video is a textbook example of branded content on YouTube. It allows Helbig to unleash her goofy personality without forcing her to shill for the lotion she is advertising. Helbig, not St Ives, remains the star throughout the whole video, thus allowing viewers to feel comfortable and positive about her role as spokeswoman. St. Ives and ad agency Arnold

Cinema Retro Special Report: Paul Talbot On The Making Of Charles Bronson's "The Evil That Men Do"

  • CinemaRetro
By Paul Talbot

The poster screamed: “Most criminals answer to the law. The world’s most savage executioner must answer to Bronson.” Since the late 1960s, Charles Bronson’s name on a marquee was a guarantee of unchained action. When The Evil That Men Do opened in 1984, fans were hit with the expected violence─but this time they were also assaulted with thick layers of sadism, sleaze and depravity. And they loved it.

Born in 1921, Charles Bronson (originally Bunchinsky) was a dirt-poor Pennsylvania coal miner before he was drafted and later used the GI Bill to study acting. After dozens of small roles, he became a popular supporting player in hit films like The Magnificent Seven (1960) and The Great Escape (1963)─then went overseas to star in European pictures like Farewell, Friend (1967), Once Upon a Time in the West (1967) and Rider on the Rain (1970). Although ignored in the States─where they

6-Year-Old Twins Rack Up a $1,600 Bill Playing Games on Their Dad's iPad
Kids do the darndest things! They repeat a swear word that they learned from—uh oh! —you. They convince their little siblings that they were adopted. They rack up over a thousand dollars worth of charges on iPad games. Oopsies! That's what one U.K. father experienced when his 6-year-old twins, a boy and a girl, charged $1587.14 (£979.90) worth of in-app purchases while playing games on his iPad in just two days (H/T Jezebel).
