Orson Welles to get a documentary about his final years

Orson Welles is a fascinating and polarizing figure. While undeniably a genius, his brutish and demanding nature often alienated collaborators, and at one point led to an exile from Hollywood. A great prodigy - writing, starring, and directing CITIZEN KANE at only age 24 - his later years were beset by debt, projects falling through, and demeaning paycheck work (his last role was as a...

There are few directors as divisive as Oliver Stone . While he's well-regarded as a great craftsmen and storyteller, his politics oftentimes overshadow his otherwise great filmmaking abilities. Even if you're not the biggest fan of his, he has an impressive oeuvre, including the Oscar-winning PLATOON and BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY. Though, as divisive as Stone is, he...

When newcomer Paul, the Banana, fell on the wrong end of the joke, he ran to the government to disband the SSP. The following trailer captures the wrestlers' fight to keep the theatrics alive. While I...

HBO to bring David Bowie: The Last Five Years documentary to fans

I still remember exactly where I was the moment I heard that David Bowie had passed away. I was in Vancouver, sipping a bourbon old fashioned in a hotel lobby, and waiting for transport to the set of WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES. After hearing the unfortunate news, my whole morning had turned upside down. I immediately reconfigured my ipod to host a series of...

New Danny Trejo documentary titled Inmate #1 in the works

Danny Trejo seems like a cool dude. In an interview with the bad movie podcast How Did This Get Made (after making fun of his movie BAD ASS) he revealed that he'll sometimes work on student films if asked, and will even do it pro bono, just so people can have his name in their project. He's also been known to help at-risk youth in his spare time. But Trejo wasn't...

HBO releases Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds doc Bright Lights early

I don't like subscribing to the "F*ck 2016" bandwagon. Not that this hasn't been a rough year, just that this isn't 1939 in Poland or something. Then again, Trump winning the presidential election and the simultaneous deaths of Carrie Fisher and mother Debbie Reynolds within a day of each other definitely makes it feel that way, possibly even worse....
