Earlier this week we mentioned The Scarecrow Project, which aims to convert Seattle’s Scarecrow Video into a non-profit organization. Scarecrow houses the world’s largest home video collection, with over 120,000 titles.
One of the grossest and most wonderful films I’ve seen this year is the German coming of age comedy Wetlands from director David Wnendt. The film revolves around a peculiar young woman who winds up in the hospital after a horrific shaving mishap, which
There are two things that stick out to me in David Karlak‘s upcoming short film Rise other than the talented cast featuring Anton Yelchin and Rufus Sewell- the outstanding looking visuals and a version of the film that supports the Oculus Rift.
Jeff Baena’s Life After Beth brings a refreshing, and somewhat new take on the zombie comedy, but it never fully achieves the comedic gold it’s setting out to accomplish. At times it proves to be very funny, but the inconsistent tone and broken moral prevent it from being something truly unique.
The ultimate testosterone-fuelled, ’80s-action throwback series, The Expendables, is back in its third and most boisterous installment to date. Touting more characters and mindless action than ever before, The Expendables 3 brings together a plethora of aging action stars and pits them against wave after wave of generic villains in an attempt to up the ante yet again. But in a post-The-Raid-2 world, is there still a place for this type of action that favors gunplay and explosions over meticulously choreographed martial arts?
Stories about cross-town rivals are nothing new. We’ve all read about them or seen TV shows or movies about them. The same can be said about the profound impact of city financial budget cuts that affect thousands of teachers’ jobs and the education of countless children and teenagers. You only need to look at your nightly local news to see a story about a violent flair up between rivals or how yet another school had its doors closed due to budget cuts. It’s an unfortunate sign of the times that always seems to paint such a negative picture but when it’s turned into an unexpected positive that is something to take notice of. Such is the case of the teachers and students at Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia, PA and they are the subject of Judd Ehrlich’s documentary We Could Be King.
The 52nd New York Film Festival has revealed its main slate, which includes David Fincher‘s Gone Girl, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice, Alejandro G. Iñárritu‘s Birdman, and a slew of other very promising looking features.
Septic Man is a shitty movie in every sense of the word. It’s a film heavily centered around shit and, other than the high quality and extremely gross gore effects, it’s not a very well made movie either. The threadbare plot seems to only exist at all in order to transition from one gross-out moment to the next and the characters are underdeveloped and generic. In many ways it feels like a higher quality Troma film, which could be viewed as a compliment, depending on how disgusting you like your horror.
The first trailer has been released for David Koepp‘s upcoming comedy Mortdecai, which stars Johnny Depp as a moronic art dealer tasked with tracking down a stolen painting. The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Aubrey Plaza, Jeff Goldblum,
