Rob Reiner’s 1990 adaptation of Stephen King’s very personal novel Misery comes to a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from Shout! Factory. The disc features a new 4K restoration of the film, along with new interviews with Reiner and effects artist Greg Nicotero and the rest of the bonus features found in a previous home video edition.
A co-worker and I like to talk about how the marketing content we produce isn’t the flashiest, sexiest stuff out there, but it’s the kind of nuts-and-bolts work that gets the job done. Our analogy is that we’re making well-built furniture that may not win design awards, but it’s functional.
That’s how I feel about Misery, which was directed by Rob Reiner and adapted by the legendary William Goldman from

Sara, a video artist primarily focused on creating intimacy with lonely men, thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams after coming across a stranger’s online post.
After 30 years, the wit, fun, charm and idealism are fresher than ever. The Princess Bride, adapted by William Goldman from his novel and directed by Rob Reiner, now makes a brief reappearance in UK cinemas. Catch it while you can. My colleague Hadley Freeman has a magisterial chapter on it in her memoir of 1980s Hollywood, Life Moves Pretty Fast, showing how it made possible fairytale homages and Shrek and Frozen and also affected the language of irony and comedy in the television pop culture that came afterwards. It’s a movie that manages to be both a pastiche and a fervently real love story. The Princess Bride is an organically grown comedy romance from an analogue age: different from the genetically modified, digital creations that came along later.
Directed by Rob Reiner and with an all-star cast including Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal, Peter Falk, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Mel Smith & Peter Cook, and written by Academy Award® winning screenwriter William Goldman, The Princess Bride is a classic fairy tale; full of swashbuckling swordplay, giants, pirates, an evil prince and a beautiful princess… all woven into the love story to end all love stories.

“Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”
Oh, wait. You don’t have six fingers on your right hand? Sorry, our mistake.
A classic tale of true love and high adventure, The Princess Bride invaded theatres on October 9, 1987 and has been romancing audiences ever since. After all, true love is the greatest thing in the world! Well, except for a nice Mlt.
Based on William Goldman’s 1973 fantasy-romance novel, the film was directed by the legendary Rob Reiner (This Is Spinal Tap, When Harry Met Sally…) and features a swashbuckling cast, including Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, and André the Giant. After earning a modest $30.8M at the box office upon its release, the
With the advance word on Blade Runner 2049 good, with some saying it’s at least the equal of the original (read our review here), it’s got me thinking why so few sequels surpass the first film.
In theory, it should be simple; you don’t have to introduce the characters, their relationships and the setting of the movie. In place of exposition, you should have excitement. It rarely works like that, of course. You might not have to introduce all the characters, but the equilibrium reached at the end of the first film has to be disrupted, and more often than not a sequel does it in an unnatural, unbelievable way.
When a second film is greenlit, it faces an uphill struggle; given that the original film was so good it demanded

Rob Reiner recently shared a story about the cult favorite movie saving a woman's life. Reiner recounted a story where a woman came up to him at a restaurant and shared that she had been trapped in an avalanche while skiing along
Stars Chris Sarandon, Cary Elwes, and Wallace Shawn once did a Q&A after a screening for an audience of 5,000 people. Rabid fans approached the stars reciting their lines — especially Mandy Patinkin’s “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” and Shawn’s “Inconceivable.” Even Ted Cruz reenacted the hilarious scene featuring Billy Crystal as Miracle Max and Carol Kane as his wife Valerie during the 2016 presidential campaign.
But did you know the film once saved a woman’s life?
“Honestly, I’m not making this up,” said Reiner.
The film is based on the 1973 novel of the same name by William Goldman. It grossed nearly $31 million domestically ($70 million adjusted for inflation).

In Hollywood, the screenwriter William Goldman once observed, nobody knows anything. But that was before technology companies rolled in sure of one thing: to conquer television you have to spend, spend, spend.
The geeks are raiding their digital vaults to transform themselves into lords of entertainment – or at least owners of content – and in the process shape what we watch and how we watch.

Star-driven films like Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s “The House,” Scarlett Johansson’s “Rough Night,” Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy,” Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” and Charlie Hunnam’s “King Arthur” all failed to deliver audiences to movie theaters. The directors were the focus of the buzz on Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” earlier this year, and more recently for Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” and Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.” Even comic book tentpoles and sequels like “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” directed by Jon Watts, and Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” succeeded with lesser-known leads taking on properties with troubled pasts, thanks
