Scream Factory is resurrecting another cult classic in HD—The Legacy, starring the always badass Sam Elliot—and for those of you David Duchovny fans out there, season one of Aquarius is being released by Anchor Bay this week, too.

There are also a handful of "B Movies" coming our way in various forms courtesy of Mill Creek Entertainment, and for those of you who didn’t pick up the Halloween box set last year, September 15th is your chance to finally own the Producer’s Cut of Halloween VI: The Curse of Michael Myers, as Lionsgate is giving it a standalone Blu-ray release.

Mitchum Stars in TCM Movie Premiere Set Among Japanese Gangsters Directed by Future Oscar Winner

Robert Mitchum ca. late 1940s. Robert Mitchum movies 'The Yakuza,' 'Ryan's Daughter' on TCM Today, Aug. 12, '15, Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” series is highlighting the career of Robert Mitchum. Two of the films being shown this evening are The Yakuza and Ryan's Daughter. The former is one of the disappointingly few TCM premieres this month. (See TCM's Robert Mitchum movie schedule further below.) Despite his film noir background, Robert Mitchum was a somewhat unusual choice to star in The Yakuza (1975), a crime thriller set in the Japanese underworld. Ryan's Daughter or no, Mitchum hadn't been a box office draw in quite some time; in the mid-'70s, one would have expected a Warner Bros. release directed by Sydney Pollack – who had recently handled the likes of Jane Fonda, Barbra Streisand, and Robert Redford – to star someone like Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino or Dustin Hoffman.

Outrage Watch: Michelle Rodriguez takes heat over superhero comments
Welcome to the March 2, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Michelle Rodriguez is really really sorry, kind of. After calling rumors that she'd been tapped to play the Green Lantern "the dumbest thing I've ever heard," the "Fast & Furious" star followed up by taking aim at fan demand for color-blind casting in superhero movies: "I think it's so stupid... this whole minorities in Hollywood thing, it's so stupid," she told TMZ. "It's like, stop stealing all the white people's superheroes. Make up your own." Uh-oh! Michelle Rodriguez has bashed her own kind and in the worst way @MRodOfficial #Shame #Hispanics How do you dare??? — Mexico Review® (@omckelligan) March 2, 2015 But I can't think of a time where I cared about Michelle Rodriguez's opinion on anything, so I don't think I'll start today. — Y'assssss Al Ghul (@beauty_jackson) February 28,

Arts preview 2014: blockbusters

  • The Guardian - TV News
From the world's tallest building to Adele's 'modern jazz'-inspired third album, the big events of 2014 are lining up

Television

True Detective

Crime drama is always looking for new ways of dramatising a murder investigation: one killing investigated over 10 episodes; alternating viewpoints of cops, killer, victims and so on. However, in this ambitious series from HBO, multiple seasons will follow the search for a serial killer in Louisiana over 17 years, with each year introducing a new cast. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey are in the first group. Either magnificent or mad. Mark Lawson HBO.

Penny Dreadful

This has a remarkable lineage: it is produced by film and stage director Sam Mendes and John Logan, who wrote Skyfall for Mendes as well as Hugo, The Aviator and Gladiator. Its disadvantage may be the daring concept, in which a number of fictional horror story characters – Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and Dorian Gray – are living in Victorian London.

Sundance unveils New Frontier

  • ScreenDaily
Sundance Institute executives announced on December 5 that the festival will feature new work from artist Doug Aitken as well as Klip Collective’s external projections on the Egyptian Theatre.

An expanded New Frontier will showcase installations, performance, transmedia and panel discussion section. Most of the installations will be housed at a new, 5,000-square-foot location at the Gateway in Park City adjacent to Main Street.

Doug Aitken’s The Source (Evolving) will occur at a nearby location along Main Street.

“As human and machine, biological and media experiences blur and hybridise, the distinctions between them are also becoming irrelevant,” said curator of the exhibition and Sundance Film Festival senior programmer Shari Frilot.

“The digital and the organic integrally constitute a new primordial pool. What does creativity and storytelling look like if we revel in this new way of being?”

“This year’s expanded New Frontier allows artists to continue pushing the boundaries in telling their stories,” said Sundance

Hickey And Boggs – The DVD Review

Review by Sam Moffitt

The private investigator has been with us for years, decades really. When I was younger I read as many private eye mysteries as I did science fiction and horror novels and short stories. I read as much of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett and Mickey Spillane as I could find. I also read a lot of the two MacDonald’s, Ross MacDonald’s novels about Lew Archer (one of which made a great movie with Paul Newman as Harper) and John D. MacDonald’s novels about Travis McGee. Although McGee was not strictly speaking a Pi he still functioned as one in MacDonald’s color coded novels like Darker Than Amber (which made a great movie with Rod Taylor).

I used to stay up late to watch classic private eye movies like The Maltese Falcon, Kiss Me Deadly (the best Mike Hammer movie ever, seriously!) Murder My Sweet,

Remember The '70s? New Exhibit Is All About Glam

Remember The '70s? New Exhibit Is All About Glam
In the heady days of the early 1970s, artists and socialites toyed with the boundaries that would forever transform our perceptions of gender, identity and creative expression. A new exhibition at the Tate in Liverpool investigates this period, from Andy Warhol's fashion choices to David Bowie's music.

"Glam! The Performance of Style" critically explores European and North American artistic trends from 1971-1975. Artists including Cindy Sherman, Ulay (Frank Uwe Laysiepen), Richard Hamilton and Gilbert & George grapple with glam as a vehicle for exploring irony, androgyny and self-expression.

Each work combines art and artifice with revolutionary results. For instance, Nan Goldin and Peter Hujar capture the delicate femininity of drag queens and transsexuals at their most glamorous and vulnerable, while painters including David Hockney and Richard Hamilton render a pop-centric world weaving art together with fashion and music. In addition, Marc Camille Chaimowicz’s 1972 multimedia installation "Celebration? Realife" combines the holy trinity of lights,

50 Great Films You Shouldn’t Miss… Part 1

Every movie buff appreciates a cinematic list. The arrival of vast information on a subject we love so dearly will always be welcomed with open arms. And what better than the esteemed list of all-time greatest films? Whether it’s a monumental effort like Empire’s The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time, or the country-specific AFI list of 100 Greatest American Films, there’s no denying the lasting appeal and insight a list can offer to reminiscence about old favourites and to put us on our way for new discoveries. After all, they’re usually spot on, having polled critics, filmmakers, and a devoted public who know exactly what makes a motion picture entertaining, important and timeless.

The problem is, of course, that after so many years, we’re used to reading the same old lists over and over again – how many times have we been told that The Godfather or

Sundance Film Festival 2011 Out-Of-Competition Lineup Announced (John Akomfrah’s “The Nine Muses” Made The Cut)

Well, yesterday, we saw the full list of films in-competition; today, we get to see those titles that have been selected for Sundance 2011′s out-of-competition lineup.

And as I said with yesterday’s post, I’ll be going over the complete list, highlighting titles that need to be, taking into consideration this blog’s specific interests. The only title that immediately stands out is Brit John Akomfrah’s The Nine Muses, which MsWOO positively reviewed, after seeing it at the London Film Festival in October. Read her review Here.

But look for future posts profiling any other titles I deem worthy. I’ve applied for press credentials to attend next year’s festival. I won’t know until the 23rd of this month, whether I’ve been granted press access or not. If I am, I will attend the festival; and if I’m not, well, I probably won’t.
