Deathdream

Average fans of A Christmas Story likely don’t know that director Bob Clark had once made creepy horror pictures with Alan Ormsby, but this independent shock effort of the early ’70s still casts a spell of dread. Although Vietnam is never mentioned, the war’s shadow strikes deep into the heart of a small-town family. John Marley and Lynn Carlin lead a fine cast.

The Gifted episode 9 review: outfoX

Jim Dandy Dec 11, 2017

The Gifted moves the plot forward and ignores pretty much everything else in its latest episode. Spoilers ahead in our review...

1.9 outfoX

That was fine.

I'm probably being a little tougher on outfoX than I need to be, but many of my issues with this week's episode stem from the scheduling here in the Us. The last episode was the high point for the series so far, succeeding on multiple levels. Then Fox killed the show's momentum with a week off, and followed up the off week with an episode that didn't do much other than barrel towards the season finale. 

The last episode succeeded in merging the plot propulsion and character development. We got a tonne out of the conversation between Reed and his father,

Canon Of Film: Toy Story

In this edition of Canon Of Film, we take a look at one of John Lasseter‘s seminal masterpiece– ‘Toy Story‘, in honor of the release of Pixar’s latest,‘Coco’. For the story behind the genesis of the Canon, you can click here.

Director: John Lasseter

Screenplay: John Whedon, Andrew Stanton, Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow from the story by John Lasseter, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton and Jon Ranft

(In case you haven’t seen it for some reason, here’s the trailer for the film)

It’s been over 20 years since ‘Toy Story‘ was first released. In that time, the landscape of film animation has changed so dramatically that you can separate the time difference as before as after ‘Toy Story.’ At one time, every animated feature release by Disney was a must-see event because: A–they were the results of years of painstaking detail and were made

Matt Lauer Fired From ‘Today’ by NBC News Due to ‘Inappropriate Sexual Behavior’ Allegations

NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack released a memo detailing the decision (via our sister site Deadline):

Dear Colleagues,

It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.

Jim Carrey Opens Up About His Depression: ‘I’m Sometimes Happy’
Anyone who’s seen Jim Carrey’s movies knows he’s hilarious; anyone who’s seen his interviews knows he isn’t always laughing. The actor has spoken about his depression before — in 2004, he told CBS News that “it feels like a low level of despair you live in” — but he says it’s now subsided and that he’s “sometimes happy.”

John Lasseter’s Legacy: Why the Tarnished CG Animation Pioneer May Be Irreplaceable For Disney and Pixar

John Lasseter’s Legacy: Why the Tarnished CG Animation Pioneer May Be Irreplaceable For Disney and Pixar
At last week’s “Coco” premiere at the El Capitan in Hollywood, John Lasseter had a look of sadness in his eyes. The usual gregarious charm didn’t come as easily. Maybe he was tired: he’d been running both Pixar and Disney Animation as chief creative officer for the last 11 years.

That was the explanation when Lasseter first stepped down as director of “Toy Story 4” earlier this year. Then came Tuesday’s shocking revelation of alleged unwanted advances, forcing the animation mogul — who was known for his warm hugs — to take a six-month leave of absence from the studios, apologizing for “missteps” in a memo to his Disney/Pixar staff.

Lasseter, by far the most powerful and influential figure in contemporary animation, joins a growing list of big-name players in Hollywood, the media, and politics accused of sexual misconduct (including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose). This

Melissa Gilbert Says Oliver Stone Made Her Audition for ‘The Doors’ With ‘Humiliating’ Sex Scene

Melissa Gilbert Says Oliver Stone Made Her Audition for ‘The Doors’ With ‘Humiliating’ Sex Scene
Update (November 21): Oliver Stone has made an official statement to Deadline regarding Gilbert’s harassment accusation: “We auditioned dozens of actors for roles in ‘The Doors’ and it was made clear from the outset that our film was going to be a raunchy, no-holds-barred rock ‘n’ roll movie. Anyone auditioning was told the scenes would be rehearsed and performed from a script, with my casting director, Risa Bramon Garcia, present throughout the process to ensure a safe environment for all actors who auditioned.”

Earlier: Melissa Gilbert, the actress best known for starring in the television series “Little House on the Prairie,” recently appeared on Andy Cohen’s radio show “Radio Andy” and shared an Oliver Stone audition story she calls “humiliating and horrid.” The audition was to play Jim Morrison’s girlfriend Pamela Courson in “The Doors.” According to Gilbert, Stone made her audition a “special scene” that was a “really dirty,

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale
As far as audience surrogates go, you can’t get any better or time-tested than a wide-eyed optimist thrust into the middle of a culture shock. “There’s…Johnny!” protagonist Andy Klavin (Ian Nelson) ticks all those boxes, becoming a gateway to the backstage world at the Johnny Carson-hosted “Tonight Show” in Hulu’s new seven-part comedy series. But there’s a distinct style and approach to the show around Andy that elevates this from a comedy curiosity or a wistful passion project to something worth immersing in.

Rather than re-creating faint replications of antics from the time when Carson ruled late night, “There’s…Johnny!” (originally produced for Seeso, before that comedy service shut down) uses actual archival footage from the show, even incorporating memorable moments as significant plot points for the characters just off-camera.

The 7 Best Pixar Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: “Coco” arrives in theaters on November 22nd. With that in mind, we asked our panel of critics to name their favorite Pixar movie. In a testament to the studio’s work, all seven of the critics who participated in this survey highlighted different films.

Full List of Special Features & New Promo Video for Blue Underground’s 2K Restoration Blu-ray of Bob Clark’s Deathdream

  • DailyDead
The late, great Bob Clark will forever be synonymous with the holiday season thanks to his films Black Christmas and A Christmas Story, but before he brought those stories to life on screen, he gave horror fans the gift of Deathdream, aka Dead of Night (read our own Scott Drebit's Drive-In Dust Offs article on the film here). Over 40 years after its initial release, Deathdream is being revitalized in a 2K restoration Blu-ray from Blue Underground, and we have a look at a new video showing off the film's enhanced visuals.

Jessica Chastain wants to play Beverly in It: Chapter 2

Jessica Chastain is on many people’s It: Chapter 2 grown-up Losers Club wish-list, and it appears that the actress is equally keen to play the grown-up Beverly Marsh in the blockbuster horror sequel.

Speaking to Screenrant, Chastain said “Well, I love Andy and Barbara. I worked with them on Andy’s directorial debut, you know, his film, Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so… Listen, of course, I want to work… they’re my friends. They’re like my family. Anything that they’re doing I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen.”

A sequel to Andy Muschietti’s It was a no-brainer after it became the biggest grossing horror film of all time, and casting Chastain appears to be a similarly easy decision for Warner Bros. to make.
