The World Competition winners were chosen from 18 narrative and 16 documentary features from 25 countries.

LUCKY YOU Premieres At Tribeca FF

Wednesday, May 2-----The Tribeca Film Festival hosted the World Premiere of the romantic drama LUCKY YOU, directed by Curtis Hanson, last night in advance of its theatrical opening on Friday. The film, a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, stars Eric Bana, Drew Barrymore, Robert Duvall and Debra Messing. The crowds were large as one of the more anticipated red carpet arrivals of the Festival unfurled under a beautiful and (finally) warm Spring eve...

“Spider-Man” Complete with Song and Dance Numbers…?

I went to a midnight screening last night, not to be that guy who flames message boards with his opinions, but because I love going to the movies. Especially at midnight, when all the fanboys come out with their related attire. I go to midnight screenings all the time throughout the summers. I have a [...]

Yank my “Crank”… again?!?

The following contains spoilage about the 2006 motion picture Crank. If you haven’t seen it yet, put it in your Netflix queue and get it over with. It’s only 87 minutes long. There were two films that came out in the year 2006 that punched me in the face with concrete boxing gloves. One, happened to [...]

10 More Films to Help You Judge a Potential Suitor

Were the first 10 not enough for you? Here are 10 more films to help you find that perfect someone to spend the rest of your life with. Or in my case, the good portion of a week. 20. Magnolia (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1999) - What better way to start a happy relationship of love and [...]

Italian Cinema unites to celebrate 60 years of the Cannes Film Festival

user
This year the Italian film industry is joining forces to present a unified face in Cannes, based in the I-Club on the first floor of the Hilton Hotel on the Croisette. This was where the old Palais du Cinema operated until the 1980s, and where Directors' Fortnight is held today. In spite of the (unfortunate) absence of Italian titles in the main competition at this 60th Cannes Film Festival - though Italy retains its second place in the list of all-time Palme d'Or winners - the participa...

Excess Hollywood: Doing The Devil’s Work

A cop asks our “hero” if that’s his gun up the dead girl’s “snatch.” You know the film I’m talking about is one of Mickey Rourke’s best (if not his best). It’s “Angel Heart,” a movie that gets better with each viewing. When the film came out it was “controversial” because one of the [...]

We Have an Ahab…

Warning: There are some spoilers to “Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon” in this entry, please display caution. Being able to see “Leslie Vernon” has been a difficult task. In fact it’s been one of the most difficult tasks I’ve ever come across since “28 Days Later.” Hearing about Scott Glosserman’s slasher masterpiece has [...]

We don’t need another “Maverick”…

Come to think of it, we didn’t need the first one either. The fine folks at Dark Horizons posted a news tidbit, by way of Hollywood.com, about the potential interest in reviving a franchise no one really cares about. The return of Maverick? Does anyone even remember that movie? I am somewhat of a Richard Donner [...]

Horror Host Sir Graves is dead…

While the entertainment world grieves over the death of Jack Valenti, I’m saddened to hear the news of the death, at 94, of horror host Sir Graves Ghastly. Sir Graves was a horror host whose show was seen by many in the Midwest. I grew up in Detroit watching the scaaaaaaaary antics of SG who [...]

Darren Aronofsky battles “Evan Almighty” but not really…

Noah and his ark are certainly making an impression in modern film. In fact, it seems there is so much Noah business going on that I am surprised Michael Bay isn’t getting on this train, with his 360 degree camera angles and slow motion Ben Affleck. Affleck would make a great Noah. Probably. Maybe. Not. Evan [...]

Fipresci Revelation of the Year: "yo – me" by Rafa Cortés

user
Every year, FIPRESCI presents its "Revelation of the Year" at a special screening during the "Critics' Week" in Cannes. One film is chosen out of the first or second films awarded by the Federation during the previous year, in the belief that it deserves another chance, to be seen by the Cannes professional audience. This year's Revelation is "me" (yo), the first feature film by Spanish filmmaker Rafa Cortés, discovered and awarded in Rotterdam 2007 "f...

Cannes opens with a forum examining the future of cinema "Cinema: towards the audiences of tomorrow"

user
On the opening day of its 60th anniversary, Wednesday May 16 from 2:30pm to 5:30pm, the Festival de Cannes is offering a moment of reflection on the opportunities and challenges of the next decade by holding a conference focused on the evolution of audience practices and on the ties between cinema creation, new promotional and broadcast platforms.  Film industry representatives, new media players, journalists and sociologists will share their experiences and views on how the fast evolving digit...

10 Films to Help You Judge a Potential Suitor

The dating scene can be real bummer. Especially when you think you finally found that perfect someone and all seems to be going great. Great, that is, until you find out they have the worst taste in movies ever. What if the first time you make it to their house is like 3 months into [...]

Excess Hollywood: Young, Black and Thug

Nothing makes me wish more young black male rap stars took thug movie roles than seeing Ice Cube do family comedies. (Though let’s be honest for one second, LL Cool J does make for a perfect romantic lead, as he was never threatening in the first place, and don’t even get me started on [...]

Tribeca Film Festival Profile

Wednesday, April 25----In only its sixth year, the Tribeca Film Festival has emerged as not only a major cultural celebration for New York City, but an industry must-attend event of considerable influence and gravitas. With its (relatively) modest start in 2002, the Festival ran over 5 days, screening 116 feature films and 36 short films, attracting fewer than 150,000 attendees. At last year's event, the Festival clocked in nearly 500,000 attendees, with a feature film roster of 174 films...

A Green Opening Night At Tribeca Film Festival

Wednesday, April 25----Former Vice President (and almost President) Al Gore will serve as the host when the 12-day Tribeca Film Festival opens tonight with a "green theme" (a perfect fit for Gore's new media fame and his Oscar for AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH). The seven films screening tonight were commissioned by SOS (Save Our Selves), the organization behind the Live Earth global concert series which will be held in seven different cities around the globe on July 7, 2007. The missio...

Roger Ebert is a bad ass.

As a kid, we hardly ever got “good” movies in our town. As a result, I had to live vicariously through Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert. While the two-minute reviews certainly didn’t help my Sesame Street ravaged attention span, I loved seeing the two masters at work. When I first started watching the show it was [...]

In Defense of Big Green…

Being a pure comic book geek, some recent news just completely gave me a bout of excitement that prompted a giddy squeal, and that was the news that Edward Norton, one of my favorite actors of all time, will be portraying the hulk, in “The Incredible Hulk.” Now this is just excellent news because I’m naturally [...]

Simon Cowell Lives to Fight Another Day

And so does American Idol. “Is he writing a blog about Simon Cowell?” Yes, yes I am. I know some of you fine Threat readers are fans of American Idol. And though I haven’t quite figured out why you (or the millions of other people) actually like and defend the show, I thought I’d address an event [...]
