“Nobody shoots a car the way Aussies do.” So says Quentin Tarantino in the must-see 2008 Ozploitation documentary Not Quite Hollywood. And QT’s words are reconfirmed by director Greg McLean’s new film Wolf Creek 2 — the sequel to his 2005 tale of terrible-things-happening-in-the-Australian-outback — which owes as much to the likes of The Road Warrior (and Steven Spielberg’s classic auto-thriller Duel) as it does the torture porn genre.
“I’m not known for my gun-play,” says Brady Bunch star Eve Plumb.
No kidding. So how did the actress who played Jan Brady on the classic sitcom wind up portraying the gun-toting matriarch of a crime family in the indie revenge thriller Blue Ruin (which was released last Friday and is also available to watch on VOD)? “Well, auditions are few and far between and I will audition for anything,” says the plain-speaking Plumb, 56. Her taped audition impressed director Jeremy Saulnier, who was unfamiliar with the actress’ small-screen work. “Jeremy shows me all these audition tapes, and he was like, ‘She’s really good,’” recalls Blue Ruin star Macon Blair, who plays a vengeance-seeking homeless man in the film and did recognize the Brady sister. “I was like, ‘She is really good. What I’m saying is you’re going to have Jan Brady with a goddamn machine gun! That’s kinda cool, right?’” READ FULL STORY
The Long Good Friday is not the most successful film to star Bob Hoskins, who has died at the age of 71. (That would be the 1988 blockbuster Who Framed Roger Rabbit.) It may not even be the British actor’s best gangster movie; a case can be made for Neil Jordan’s superlative Mona Lisa. But as a reminder of Hoskins’ volcanic, yet subtly-applied talents, it is impossible to beat this 1979 thriller from director John Mackenzie.
Forget all those cute, snowflake-suffused Christmas cards. From Howard Hawks’ The Thing From Another World to the Coen brothers’ Fargo to this week’s somewhat self-explanatory horror movie Blood Glacier, it is an established movie law that terrible things occur in cold weather. And director Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais doesn’t seem in any hurry to break that rule with his debut thriller, Whitewash, which is currently available to buy on iTunes and arrives on VOD this coming Friday.
Whether you know him best as Game of Thrones’ scheming Littlefinger or ambitious Baltimore politico Tommy Carcetti on HBO’s The Wire, actor Aiden Gillen has the uncanny ability to make any bad guy seem a bit more humane — which also happens to be the reoccurring theme in his newest project, indie flick Beneath The Harvest Sky.

Despite its seemingly kiddie-friendly name, the new film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie is not suitable for children — unless they’re very young. “You can sit down with a child that doesn’t perceive vulgarity and that child will totally delight in it, because it’s colorful to look at,” says director and prolific podcaster Kevin Smith, who wrote the film. “But if that child understands content at all, you’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.”
Sometimes Justice just takes longer than expected.
Warner Bros. says it is going to try again to create a big-screen version of Justice League, the long-demanded, occasionally attempted team-up between Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and other iconic DC superheroes.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the studio’s production president Greg Silverman confirmed that Zack Snyder would follow-up his 2016 Batman/Superman movie with this one, delivering Justice League to theaters sometime in 2018.
'Star Wars' clues: Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill in London as new trilogy is set to begin
Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill — three people who are synonymous with classic Star Wars — have all turned up in London this weekend, just as J.J. Abrams’ first installment in the new trilogy is about to begin shooting at nearby Pinewood Studios.
This caused a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly tweeted out in unison — but this time it’s Lucasfilm that has gone silent. No casting news has been confirmed, even though principal photography is imminent. Fisher, Ford, and Hamill have all dropped hints, both publicly and privately, that they are planning to return, however.
Even a nerf herder could put these clues together. So here they are …
