R. Lee Ermey Has Passed Away

With a relentless delivery of some of the most head-turning lines in cinema, R. Lee Ermey had a commanding, unparalleled screen presence in films and television, and we're sad to share the news of the iconic actor's passing at the age of 74.

Born Ronald Lee Ermey in Emporia, Kansas, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at 17 when, after a second arrest for criminal mischief, he was given the choice between jail or the military. He chose the latter.

“Gunny,” as he became to be known, was a drill instructor in the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion in San Diego, where he served in the mid-’60s. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, in 1968, before being sent to Vietnam for 14 months, at which time he was medically discharged because of injuries. In 2002, he received an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant.

While attending the University of Manila in the Philippines, Emery was cast in his first film — Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” playing a First Air Cavalry chopper pilot. Eight years later, he was cast as drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” earning a Golden Globe nomination in the process.

Among his 60 other film roles were “Mississippi Burning,” “Dead Man Walking,” Se7en,” ‘Leaving Las Vegas” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

Emery also appeared on the small screen in “Miami Vice,” “House” and “The X-Files,” and his commanding voice can be heard in such animated projects as the “Toy Story” film franchise, “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy” and “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

He went on to host two series on the History Channel, “Mail Call” and “Lock N’ Load With R. Lee Emery,” and “Gunny Time” on the Outdoor channel.

Emery is survived by his wife of 43 years, Nina, and their four children.

For the record: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported Ermey’s age.

More Streaming Options

If you're bored with your new choices on Netflix, thought we'd give a shout out to a few options for only 99¢ on iTunes at the moment. Stronger, with Jake Gyllenhaal (who won our Bronze for Best Actor for last season) is their movie of the week. But in their often changing "Movies You Might Have Missed" section, also 99¢, they're currently offering five Pedro Almodóvar movies, Meryl Streep in She-Devil (which the Month of Meryl column hits next Thursday), the Glenn Close classic Fatal Attraction, David Fincher's Se7en, and, um, a Chinese remake of the unimprovable 90s romcom My Best Friend's Wedding... but at least it stars Shu Qi so it *might* be worth 99¢

And still more streaming options if you're not in the mood for Dwayne Johnson's Rampage this weekend or you've already see the delightful / problematic / futureOscarnominee Isle of Dogs. Amazon Prime has added a 55 wide movie

East End Film Festival Movie Review – Charismata (2018)

Charismata, 2018

Directed by Andy Collier and Toor Mian

Starring Sarah Beck Mather, Jamie Satterthwaite, Adonis Anthony, Johnny Vivash, Ross Mullan, Sean Knopp

Synopsis:

When a troubled police detective (Sarah Beck Mather) gets embroiled in the case of a potential serial killer, whose motivation appears to be driven by Satanism, she struggles to maintain her sanity within a male driven police force as the body count rises.

Coming across like an extended episode of The X-Files, Andy Collier and Toor Mian’s occult crime horror feels like one of those films you’d discover late at night on terrestrial television, and stick with largely thanks to Mather’s excellent portrayal of a woman’s descent into a literal and personal hell.

Introduced shrouded in a portentous red light, a warning of the path she’s about to walk, Mather’s rookie detective immediately earns your sympathy. Not only is she exposed

The Best Movie Jump-Scares of All Time — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Last weekend saw the release of “A Quiet Place,” the premise of which is a fiendishly clever mechanism for celebrating the time-honored art of the jump-scare. Some of us love them, some of us don’t, but there’s no denying that they get the job done.

In that light, we ask: What’s the greatest jump-scare of them all?

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in April 2018

Spring is here, love is in the air, and everyone is finally ready to go back outside, but Netflix’s April offerings are giving us at least seven more compelling reasons to stay on the couch for at least another few weeks. This month brings an eclectic mix of new movies to the streaming platform, from the sweet Americana of “The Iron Giant” to the decidedly less sweet Americana of “Scarface” — from the mad brilliance of Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Along Came Polly” to the brilliant madness of the Wachowskis’ “Speed Racer.” We’ve also got “Deep Blue Sea” and David Fincher’s “Se7en,” two very different movies about two very different monsters (super sharks and Kevin Spacey, respectively).

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Used Steven Soderbergh for Inspiration and Shot With A New Kind of IMAX Camera

The Russo Brothers are known for their surprising sources of inspiration when it comes to their Marvel movies. The filmmaking duo cited Alan J. Pakula’s classic conspiracy thriller “The Parallax View” when talking about “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” while David Fincher’s “Se7en” was listed as a reference point for “Captain America: Civil War.” So what movies did the brothers look at before “Infinity War”? It turns out a Steven Soderbergh crime classic.

“The movies that we looked at [were’Two Days in the Valley’ and ‘Out of Sight,'” Anthony Russo told Collider. “We always look to movies for an inspiration for the energy that we’re looking for, or a narrative construct that we want to be inspired by, and those two films in particular.”

Joe Russo admits that people have misinterpreted their inspiration choices in the past. For “Infinity War,” for instance, films like “Out of Sight” weren’t used for plot

Court Voids Fraudulent Transfer of 42 Film Projects Including Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann Movies

The new management of Cecchi Gori Pictures has hit paydirt as a California bankruptcy judge has ruled that rights to 42 film projects, including work by famed directors Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann, were fraudulently transferred. After issuing a partial summary judgment earlier this month, the judge has followed it up by determining that Cecchi Gori Pictures — once an Italian production giant behind such films as Il Postino, Life Is Beautiful and Se7en — was entitled to recover assets.

The history of this dispute is complicated, but begins with movie mogul Vittorio Cecchi Gori, who was convicted of financial crimes in Italy...

2018 Oscar Previews: Part 2

The 90th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday March 4th at 7pm Eastern time. Here is the continuation of our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself.

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries,

Reg E. Cathey, Emmy-Winning ‘House of Cards’ and ‘The Wire’ Actor, Dies at 59
Reg E. Cathey, who was best known for playing Freddy on “House of Cards,” has died at age 59. The news first announced by “The Wire” creator David Simon, who called Cathey “not only a fine, masterful actor — but simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set.” Netflix has since confirmed the news to IndieWire.

“On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking. Reg, your memory is a great blessing,” Simon added of his collaborator, who appeared in 23 episodes of the revered HBO drama. Cathey received three consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role on “House of Cards,” winning in 2015. A character actor whose career spanned decades, he his silver-screen resume includes everything from “Born on the Fourth of July” and “The Mask” to “What About Bob?” and “Se7en

The year Heat was criminally overlooked by the Oscars

Tom Jolliffe looks back at the Oscars in 1996, when Heat was criminally overlooked by the Academy…

The year was 1996, which looked back over the films of the previous year. It was a fairly strong year, and like a lot of the nomination lists throughout that decade there are some oddities. There are also glaring omissions. When I look back at a great year of films, my three favourites from 1995 would have to be Se7en, The Usual Suspects and Heat. Not one of these was nominated for best picture.

Two still got some recognition from the board. The Usual Suspects was nominated for two awards and won both, for Kevin Spacey (Best supporting actor) and Christopher McQuarrie (Best Original Screenplay). Se7en was nominated for best editing. Heat on the other hand was completely ignored. Not even a token nod for best catering or something. In a film about cops and robbers,

Watch Brad Pitt Touch his Head 44 Times in the Movie “Se7en”

If you can believe it Brad Pitt touches his head about 44 times in the movie Se7en. That seems excessive but if you really take note he seems like kind of a nervous guy in the film, not scared nervous but just anxious, like he has a lot of pent up energy at any given time and he just has to either run his hands through his hair during such moments. Detective Mills is after all kind of a hyper guy in a way, he prefers action and isn’t the bookish sort like his new partner Somerset. He wants to

Horror-On-Sea 2018 Interview: John Adams talks ‘Aux’

Aux is a new action horror from co-writer and director John Adams, which has been selected to play at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival on Sunday 28th January. I got chance to ask John a few questions about the inspiration behind the story, the reason for the abbreviated title Aux and working with such a talented cast including John Rhys-Davies.

What can we expect from Aux?

What we set out to make with Aux was a smart genre film. The idea was to take the structure and beats of a slasher movie but introduce and weave in a little known true story from WWII as the twist in the plot. From a commercial standpoint, our aim was to be within the horror space enough to attract the traditional horror audience, but be different enough to stand out from the competition.

What was your inspiration for writing the film Aux?

Movie Review: Hangman

First, I like thrillers. I like Karl Urban too. I also like the walking caricature that has replaced Al Pacino for the past 25 years or so. A mix like this ought to be the guilty pleasure of the year, and don’t get me wrong, while the ride is going, Pacino’s new film Hangman is decent enough entertainment. Unfortunately, there is a little too much suspension of disbelief (and a few too many last-minute explanations) for Hangman to be anything more than a “fun, but forgettable” film.

Detective Will Ruiney (Karl Urban) is none too happy with his most recent assignment: take reporter Christi Davies (Brittany Snow) on his daily routine to cover the activities of cops in his Monroe, Georgia district. Unfortunately, things go off the rails almost immediately when the pair stumbles upon a hanging corpse with a letter carved in its chest, and a crude game
