And then last night, I went out and saw TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL, which is being shown as part of the Sydney Film Festival.

This is a very, very, funny black comedy in which the well-worn story of City Folk being attacked by Hillbillies in the Backwoods - as seen in DELIVERANCE, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, THE HILLS HAVE EYES and so on - gets grabbed by its overalls and given a thorough shakin'.

Trailer:



(other trailers on YouTube give away too many of the great gags - don't watch 'em)

Highly Recommended.

And yes, that's Alan Tudyk (SERENITY) with a face full of bee stings.....

one of THE classics get its ultimate version!!

Ben-Hur Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray

Warner Home Video has sent retailers and select members of the press a photo booklet and sneak peek DVD that reveals further details about the forthcoming release of the Ben-Hur: Ultimate Collector's Edition box set, its pack-in collectibles and its bountiful supplemental package. The 3-disc Blu-ray edition is set to arrive this fall in limited quantities and numbered for exclusivity, although an exact release date has yet to be announced.

Update: Amazon is now accepting pre-orders. The cost of the Ultimate Collector's Edition set is currently $44.99. It has also been revealed that the film and special features are spread across three Blu-ray discs; two for the feature film and one for the supplemental content.

As first reported in March, the 50th Anniversary Blu-ray release of Ben-Hur will feature a newly minted frame-by-frame restoration created from the original 65mm camera negative at a resolution of 6K; effectively achieving six times the resolution of the previous DVD release. The results, at least as teased in the following before/after comparison photographs, are promising:



A variety of special features will be spread across the Blu-ray edition's three BD-50 discs, chief among them Charlton Heston & Ben-Hur: A Personal Journey, an all-new, feature length, high-definition documentary that chronicling Heston's life while filming Ben-Hur. It not only includes a wealth of behind-the-scenes content, it also includes rare home movie footage from the Heston family.



In an interview with Christianity Today, Fraser Heston, Charlton Heston's now 56-year-old son, says: "My earliest memory was of my dad coming home in his chariot driver's outfit. I think I assumed he was a professional charioteer. I remember him bringing sand from the Roman arena for my sandbox, and being told this was not just any sand. It was MGM sand!" He continues, "We recently produced a film about my dad called Charlton Heston & Ben-Hur: A Personal Journey. In it, we used a lot of 16mm footage that my mom took. There's a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff of Dad driving the chariot around and me in it. It's pretty cool."

Other special features, most of which have been made available in previous releases of the film, include:

    Ben-Hur, A Journey Through Pictures: An audiovisual re-creation assembled using stills, storyboards, sketches, music, dialogue and other archive materials
    Ben Hur: The 1925 Silent Film
    2005 Documentary, Ben-Hur: The Epic That Changed Cinema
    1994 Documentary, Ben-Hur: The Making of an Epic
    Original Screen Tests
    Vintage Newsreel Gallery
    Highlights from the 4/4/60 Academy Awards Ceremony
    Theatrical Trailer Gallery



The Ultimate Collector's Edition also offers filmfans two collectible books in a three-tier collector's case. The first book, "Charlton Heston: The Ben-Hur Diaries" is the most intriguing. An exclusive look into the Oscar-winning actor's experience while making the award-winning film, this high-quality reproduction of Charlton Heston's personal and insightful diary documents events that occurred from January 1958 through April 1960; from a time before production of the film begain all the way through Heston's Oscar win. The book includes personal photos from the Heston family and some of Heston's own sketches.



The second exclusive book is a more traditional pack-in that features rare photographs, production art and reproductions from the original theatrical press book.



Ben-Hur won a record-setting eleven Academy Awards, among them Best Picture (producer Sam Zimbalist), Best Director (William Wyler), Best Actor (Charlton Heston), Best Supporting Actor (Hugh Griffith), Best Color Cinematography (Robert L. Surtees), Best Film Editing (Ralph E. Winters and John D. Dunning), Best Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture (Miklos Rozsa), Best Color Art Direction and Set Decoration (William A. Horning, Edward Carfagno and Hugh Hunt), Best Sound (Franklin E. Milton, MGM Studio Sound Department) and Best Special Effects (A. Arnold Gillespie, Robert MacDonald and Milo Lory).

IMDB

this is a VERY GOOD MOVIE



why do I like this one? because it's a combination of lots of things:

*WWII
*love and affection between human and animals
*showing an unshown aspect of war in movies: hunger
*showing the aftermath of war
and more

and what a perfomance of such a young girl Mathilde Goffart




Survivre avec les Loups

Because I felt like it, I sat down and watched a Late Nite Double Feature, starring two movies drawn from the vaults...

ENDPLAY (1976) and J.D.'S REVENGE (1976).

I'm gonna say straight off that ENDPLAY is NOT a very good film - I did hit the FF button a couple of times.

Psychological thriller about two brothers, one of whom is in a wheelchair, and either or both of whom may be killing young, lissome hitchikers:

End Play 1976 Ozploitation thriller video trailer


It is, however, interesting for a number of reasons:

* ENDPLAY comes out of a time when some Aussie directors were making sometimes rather painful and forced 'statement' films about 'being Australian'. Other directors in this period were looking to cash in on what was a worldwide boom in Exploitation films. ENDPLAY is a good, honest exploitation film - some violence, some far-fetched 'psychological' stuff, lots of plot twists, and some T&A...who's killing the hot chicks and pushing them around in wheelchairs? -don't worry, you'll find out in the last 5 minutes.

* Like a lot of Aussie artistic product, ENDPLAY was made with the Overseas Market firmly in mind - there is very little in the script or the locations that evokes Australia - this film was designed to be sold in the UK market, and is remarkably similar in it's style to various British thrillers of it's era.

* The script for ENDPLAY was from the novel of the same name by Russell Braddon -
Braddon's a very interesting writer - I just finished reading his WWII memoir 'The Naked Island', which recounts his experiences as a P.O.W. on the Burma Railway and at Changi - I'll write this up for the Reading Thread at some point, because it's a GREAT book.

* It's got Delvene Delaney!!!

Delvene is remembered fondly by Australians who were watching TV in the 1970's - she was a regular on The Paul Hogan Show, and in fact ended up marrying Hoges' sidekick and business manager, John 'Strop' Cornell.

Here's Delvene:

TAB Cola (Australian ad) 1984


J.D.'S REVENGE is also Exploitation - it's a supernatural thriller set among African-Americans in New Orleans in the 1970's....a young, upwardly mobile law student finds himself possessed by the demonic spirit of a 1940's black gangster after a novelty hypnosis session....

JD'S REVENGE


But it's a much better film than ENDPLAY - very well made, given it's budget constraints.

Director Arthur Marks made a few interesting films in his career - I especially liked the gritty film-noirish feel of his BONNIE'S KIDS (1973):
Bonnie's Kids (1973)


Marks is a very capable director, and J.D'S REVENGE is well worth your time - a great performance by the lead actor, Glynn Turman, who literally changes personalities before your eyes....and Lou Gossett Jr. in an interesting supporting role.....

You can actually watch the whole film on YouTube, if you want:

J.D.'s Revenge (1976) (Embedding disabled, limit reached)

I would recommend either a Late-Nite session or make it your Midday Movie of the Week....
