EXCESS HOLLYWOOD: ANOTHER REASON THE MPAA GETS AN F

Let me preface this column (blog, whatever) with two things. The movie ratings system should be abolished, and “”Hostel 2″ was a better film than the first one, which I liked. If you agree that the ratings board is a necessary evil (and I don’t, but plenty do), you have to admit that it got … Continued

SNEAKING “ON THE LOT”: WEEK FIVE

Six directors enter, one director leaves. The show switches up form AGAIN by putting the filmmakers into a theme night, Comedy, and seeing what they come up with. Luckily, Zach is in tonight’s group…

FISHBURNE BUYS RIGHTS TO “THE ALCHEMIST”

Laurence Fishburne and A-Mark Entertainment have acquired the film rights to Paulo Coelho’s best-selling novel “The Alchemist” from previous rights-holders Warner Bros. “The Alchemist” seems to be one of those projects that everyone talks about making but no one actually does (hence WB holding the rights for so long), so we’ll see if Fishburne can … Continued

KAMP KATRINA

Not a film that will fill you with hope, and inspire you to believe in humanity once again. You will not leave theaters or your room with a fulfilled sense of faith, and trust in your fellow man, because at the end of the day, New Orleans still lies in ruins and the struggles to rebuild it and to survive continue at this moment…

HE’S JUST A BIG PUPPY DOG…

Preamble: Today is the release of “Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon,” for the love of god, buy and or rent it. It’s a true horror film classic waiting to be discovered. Take my horror brother Jeremy Knox’s word for it, and for good measure, view my riff on the film on the … Continued

BEHIND SCOTT GLOSSERMAN’S MASK

“DIE HARD” MUSIC VIDEO

“Live Free or Die Hard” opens in theaters tomorrow, so Film Threat takes a rocking look back at the first three films of the “Die Hard” series in this music video by Guyz Nite. Yippee-ki-yay motherfucker, indeed!

“THE KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS” TRAILER

Hitting theaters in August, “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters” tells the epic tale of Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell, two videogamers fighting for the ultimate World Record of Donkey Kong. Critically acclaimed while on the festival circuit, “The King of Kong” may be the best documentary you see in your lifetime…
