An inventive, lyrical ode to creativity and an intimate examination of the artistic impulses of Australian-born musician and cultural icon Nick Cave. In their debut feature, directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary, weaving a staged day in Cave's life with never-before-seen verite observations of his creative cycle.
Directed and written by Jake Helgren, the film stars Lexi Giovagnoli, Wesley Scott, Debbie Rochon, Natalie Peyton, Blair Jackson, and Elyse Bigler. This football season, Hogeye High's Warriors and cheerleaders are out for blood. Unfortunately, someone is out for theirs, and they'll be forced to take one for the team. After the big Halloween football match, the students are joined by an uninvited guest dressed as their high school mascot armed with a bow and arrow, a battle-axe, and an insatiable appetite for butchery.
Abigail Breslin stars in director Vincenzo Natali's unique take on the traditional haunted house story. In 1986, 15-year-old Lisa (Breslin) and her family died in their home under sinister circumstances. Unable to move on, their spirits have continued to roam the house.
Years after a cruel kids' prank during a birthday party for 8-year-old Tommy (Tommy Knight) left hired clown Richard 'Stitches' Grindle (Ross Noble) dead on the kitchen floor, the childhood friends gather to plan a birthday bash to end all bashes. But they haven't counted on the degenerate jester rising from the grave...
On 17-year-old Kate's last weekend in town before heading to college, she and her geeky friends head to SpaceCON, the local sci-fi/fantasy convention. There, Kate meets Paul, a recently turned teen vampire (who takes advantage of the gathering's costume atmosphere by actually dressing as a bloodsucker). But when Kate tries to make a move on him, he gives her the hickey from hell.
DVD Review THOU SHALT NOT KILL...EXCEPT (BLU-RAY)
I tried to watch this movie 10 years or so ago and simply couldn't get through it. Now, with Synapse responsible for this new Blu-ray treatment I'm more than willing to give the film another shot.
From legendary Japanese director Shinsuke Ogawa (A Summer in Narita, Peasants of the Second Fortress, The Building of the Iwayama Tower) and his disciple, feminist filmmaker Peng Xiolian (Shanghai Story, A Woman of Substance). Red Persimmons is a visually elegant paean to the cultivation and harvesting of the sweet red fruit in the tiny Japanese village of Kaminoyama. The film's larger subject, however, is the disappearance of Japan's traditional culture, the end of a centuries-old way of life. Begun by Ogawa in the late 1980s.
Hitting the App Store on March 6th, "Monty Python: The Holy Book of Days" fully submerges Python fans in the world of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Melcher created this app together with John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin of Monty Python to give a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the troupe's second feature film. App re-creates the 28 days of location shooting of the landmark film Monty Python and the Holy Grail
DVD Review WORLD ON A WIRE (BLU-RAY)
This is one of those classics of foreign cinema that I've known about since I was a kid, but have never actually seen. What better way to experience all 3-plus hours of this masterpiece for the first time than via a Criterion Collection Blu-ray.
DVD Review INSIGNIFICANCE (Criterion Blu-ray)
It's always great to see a Nicolas Roeg film for the first time, but it's even better when it stars Theresa Russell and is contained on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.
Over 30 minutes of exclusive, never-before-seen footage. Bonus features include outrageous outtakes and deleted scenes, as well as a look at the origins of the Jackass franchise and footage from the Jackass European tour where the troupe brought mayhem across the pond to England, Ireland and Spain while filming more of their insanely inventive stunts.
Seth Rogen stars as a self-made superhero in this high-octane buddy action/adventure co-starring Asian pop superstar Jay Chou, Tom Wilkinson, Oscar Winner Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz. Oscar winning director Michel Gondry brings his unique, cutting-edge visual style to this slick updating of the classic adventures of the masked vigilante The Green Hornet and his industrious sidekick Kato.
A dangerously addictive online game, a wondrous mysterious tale, a chilling tale, a vivid and bizarre imagination, and a sensual drama are titles coming from the indie entertainment outfit.
DVD Review HUNGER (BLU-RAY)
Having cought this disturbing masterpiece nearly a year ago, I can't wait to see what a wonderful treatment The Criterion Collection has granted it on Blu-ray.
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds is available on Two-Disc Blu-rayTM Hi-Def, Two-Disc DVD Special Edition, Single-Disc DVD and download to own. Both the Blu-rayTM and Two-Disc Special Edition DVD come with a Digital Copy of the film for a limited time only just in time for the holiday season and over 90 minutes of startling and engrossing behind-the-scenes bonus features.
