  1. New one called Menashe, looks interesting. Was one of the new trailers to watch this week on The Verge


    Menashe was picked up by A24 after getting some great reviews at Sundance, and it's now heading to theaters. The film is about a Hasidic father who, due to religious tradition, loses custody of his son after the death of his wife. It looks like an emotional, intimate portrait of a people in a community that's not often put on screen. The film comes out July 28th.

    One of the most buzzed-about films at the 2018 Sundance film festival was Ari Aster’s unsettling writing and directing debut Hereditary, a horror film starring Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro as a family haunted by their past. Or more accurately, haunted by their creepy dead grandmother. Or more accurately than that, haunted by things that should not be spoiled. Critics nearly universally praised Hereditary as shocking and terrifying, leading to some skeptical backlash from horror fans who felt burned by similar advance praise for films like The Witch and It Comes At Night, two extremely tense horror films in which not a whole lot ultimately happens.

    Well, now Hereditary has its first trailer, which makes it pretty evident that this film has a lot more grim action than either of those movies. Judge for yourself. The best thing about this trailer is that it’s cleverly misleading in all the right ways, so even if you think you’re being spoiled about a plot point, you’re probably not — which won’t keep you from getting the gist and tone of the movie, but will leave a lot of surprises.

    Hereditary is set for wide theatrical release on June 28th, 2018.

    I’m at the Oxford Film Festival premiering my film.

    Tonight I saw The Last Movie Star starring Burt Reynolds. A24 films.

    Good film, but amazing performance from Reynolds.

    When the film concluded, there was a Q&A with director/writer Adam Rifkin.

    Rifkin said growing up, Reynolds was the biggest movie star, and his idol. He wanted to make a film about Reynolds and had the idea of an old movie star trying to relieve the glory days – and Rifkin considered pitching the idea to Reynolds, but said he wanted to write the script first – sent it to Reynolds’ manager who didn’t make any promises to Rifkin.

    The subsequent day Burt Reynolds himself called Rifkin and said he read the script and now was the perfect time to do a film like this.

    Very insightful interview, and cool story to hear from someone who got to make a film about his hero.

    Reynolds is/was a great actor. IMO he tended to be typecast into the "Smokey and the Bandit" redneck roles, which is unfortunate.. His work in "Gunsmoke" and "Navajo Joe" are mostly overlooked and do not get the acclaim that they should. Nor does his role in Deliverance get the acclaim these days that it should, but at the time it was ground breaking. Boogie Nights was such a departure from his earlier work...he did a great job there.

    Yeah it can easily happen to actors who start accepting the same type of roles.

    Some will roll with the punches and continue doing film genres they are synonymous with (action/adventure-Stallone, Statham, Cruise for example).

    Jim Carrey is a good example of someone who took his ball and went home when audiences wouldn’t accept him in serious roles - The Majestic, Eternal Sunshine, 23). Then he went back to comedies, and children’s movies, now he’s back to trying serious roles and it doesn’t work.

    Did anyone see the documentary about him? It was titled I Needed Color.

    It was awful. His art was awful. A flea market wouldn’t accept his paintings. Near the end he goes to speak at some event, like a graduation ceremony maybe? Regardless, he made the entire event about him, and showed off some of his “art.”

    I’ll copy and paste the synopsis:

    In 1902 Nellie Jackson, an African-American woman born into poverty in Possum Corner, Miss., travels north to Natchez and opens “Nellie’s,” a brothel she ran for more than 60 years with full knowledge of police and Natchez officials until a fiery end one hot July night in 1990.

    We allowed a film crew to shoot in our house a couple of months ago. That was a pretty fun experience, although it's seems so god damn tedious.

    Not to mention that being a director seems like trying to herd cats and it makes sense why so many of the good ones are notorious dickheads.

    I’ll post it when it comes out. It was a ten minute student film so I doubt it’s the highest quality production of all time.

    It was fun but we won’t do it again unless it’s something legit. You can make some bank on location fees.

    My best friend growing up lived across the street from me. They had multiple commercials and a hallmark movie of the week shot at their house. It was really cool going over and watching all the chaos. I was so fucking jealous too.

    When I was a kid I just assumed it was because it is a pretty big house. At least as far as in-city houses go. Looking back, its probably that, and the fact that it is a really nice house. Large rooms. Lots of natural light. Up on a nice lot in a nice old neighborhood with big oak trees and whatnot. The hallmark movie was set in the 50s, so there were these old cars parked up and down our streets all the time. Was kind of wild.

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to update everyone on my film.

    We premiered at Oxford Film Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday showing was about 95 percent full house. Sunday was 80 percent but bigger venue, however good showing. Everyone was blown away.

    I’ll keep everyone up to date on subsequent news regarding the film.

    Just a friendly advice for your next movie, make sure to have a long scene with nothing but a woman eating a pie. The scene needs to be at the very least 90 second long, it really doesn’t matter what kind of pie she is eating.

    The kind of pie is important.

    Banana caramel, pecan, chocolate ice box?

    2 minutes eating pie?! There could have been like 130 action shots edited together to occupy that time instead.

    I like mincemeat pie. I know a lot of people hate it, but my grandpa loved it, and so I grew up eating it at my grandparents house. I like fruitcake too. And tapioca...wait, am I old? :ohdear:
