NORTHVILLE CEMETERY MASSACRE (DVD)

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 1976
MPAA Rating: R

THE SCROOGE CHRONICLES – REGINALD OWEN (1938)

THE SCROOGE CHRONICLES – REGINALD OWEN (1938)

Whether you’ve read the original Dickens story or seen one of the many movie or TV adaptations available of “A Christmas Carol,” it’s common knowledge that Scrooge is seen as miserly, unpleasant, wishing ill of all cheery Christmas celebrants with a swift, “Bah, humbug!” That’s the general take, changed by all actors who play him based […]

EXCESS HOLLYWOOD: CROCKETT O’ SHIT… NOW ON DVD!

EXCESS HOLLYWOOD: CROCKETT O’ SHIT… NOW ON DVD!

I liked the original the “”Miami Vice” television show … at least most of it. It was stylish, kinda dark (for television), and made the best use of music in the medium at the time. When I heard Michael Mann, the individual who rose to fame off his real (or perceived) role in creating the […]

LAMAR’S LIMP-WRISTED THROWING STYLE DROPS FILM

LAMAR’S LIMP-WRISTED THROWING STYLE DROPS FILM

While no one we know of was chomping at the bit to see a remake of “Revenge of the Nerds,” it could have been a dumb/fun movie designed to waste ninety minutes of our lives. Yet that may never happen now as FOX Atomic has put the kabosh on the flick right smack in the […]

SEAN CONNERY SAYS “WHOOPSY!”

SEAN CONNERY SAYS “WHOOPSY!”

When Peter Jackson and New Line set out to make the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, they wanted a big name star to play Gandalf. They looked no further than Sean Connery, but they didn’t have the cash to pay him up front. Instead, they offered a backend deal like the one Jack Nicholson got […]

PHANTOM (DVD)

Alas, there is no rediscovered classic to be found here. It’s strictly a digitally spruced-up dud…

GOING TO VEGAS FOR THE IFFS DEC. 3-5

GOING TO VEGAS FOR THE IFFS DEC. 3-5

Hey Gang- I’ll be in Las Vegas December 3rd through 5th for a two-day film festival summit called, oddly enough, the International Film Festival Summit. The summit takes place at the Luxor Hotel, so, if this interests you in the least, come on by. A few years ago I was the keynote speaker in New […]

JEFF ANDERSON: NOW YOU KNOW HIS FEMININE SIDE

Talking shit behind the counters of retail stores can take you places; just ask Jeff Anderson. His role as the smart-ass, “Star Wars” savvy Randal in Kevin Smith’s “Clerks” has landed him the opportunity to talk shit behind a movie camera…

MICHAEL RICHARDS: ANATOMY OF A MELTDOWN

At this stage, celebrities, or ex-celebrities, gone mad is nothing new. We might as well create a ranking system similar to the United States Terror Alert. Thanks to recent events with Michael Richards, we can add “having a racist tirade” to the board under “going Kramer crazy”…

ABEL FERRARA…YOU BIG OLE SCREWBALL

ABEL FERRARA…YOU BIG OLE SCREWBALL

We screamed in the remake of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” We cringed at Harvey Keitel’s weenie in “Bad Lieutenant” and we were intrigued by your sexy, creepy vampire flick “Addiction.” And then there was the brilliantly cast “The Funeral,” which had it’s moments. But Abel Ferrara, we never, ever thought you’d do…a screwball comedy […]

LITTLE MISS INDIE SPIRIT AWARDS IN A HALF NELSON

LITTLE MISS INDIE SPIRIT AWARDS IN A  HALF NELSON

The nominations for the 2007 Independent Spirit Awards are in and, as expected, “Little Miss Sunshine” got quite a few. However the noms were really spread out well with critically praised but little seen films like “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints” and “Half Nelson” being well represented. Film Threat would also like to tip […]
