Piranha 3D – Official full trailer. How fast can you swim?

Posted by LiveFor on May 1, 2010

This does look like it is going to be hugely fun to watch when it gets released. A nice cheesy horror with a fantastic cast.

They’re back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Havasu explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend – the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem. But this year, theres something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers. Havasu sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through. Piranhas – a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time. Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone

Flying Monkeys attack! Witches of Oz looks crazy

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

Yes Lance Henriksen is getting punched by a cat and flying monkeys are attacking New York in the 3D feature The Witches of Oz. I posted a trailer type thing back in March and new there is this new footage.

Still amazed at the cast they’ve got for this.

The film follows a grown-up Dorothy Gale, now a successful children’s book author, as she moves from Kansas to present day New York City. Dorothy discovers that her popular novels are based on suppressed childhood memories.

Directed by Leigh Scott. Starring Paulie Rojas, Billy Boyd, Eliza Swenson, Lance Henriksen, Jason Mewes, Jeffrey Combs, Mia Sara, Sean Astin, Christopher Lloyd.

Piranha 3D – Official trailer

Posted by LiveFor on January 19, 2010


The bootleg version of this trailer was out last week, but know it is out for real.

The LA Times recently had the news that The Weinstein Company was delaying the premiere of Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D, moving the action thriller from 16thApril 16 to sometime in August at the earliest.

This is being done to get out of the way of Lionsgate’s movie Kick-Ass, which also opens that weekend and may appeal to the same young audience. This could be very good thinking on their part. Although if it was released at the same time if there was any overflow from one film it would feed into the other.

Piranha 3D stars Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Dina Meyer, Brooklynn Proulx, Quinn Lord, Riley Steele, Jessica Szohr, Jerry O’Connell, Cody Longo and Ricardo Chavira.

In the film, a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself

Looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. What did you think of the trailer?

Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead, 1995 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on January 4, 2009

Director: Gary Fleder
Starring: Andy Garcia, Christopher Lloyd, William Forsythe, Bill Nunn, Treat Williams, Jack Warden, Steve Buscemi, Fairuza Balk, Gabrielle Anwar, Christopher Walken
Running Time: 115 minutes
Score: 10 / 10

This review by malkane316 – a truly great movie with great dialogue. Boat drinks to you all. Cheers to Daan for reminding me of this forgotten classic.

The early and mid nineties saw the emergence of Tarantino and his new greed of filthy pulp genius, and naturally everyone else wanted apiece of the action. From now on scripts had to be full of witty dialogue, the characters had to be from the wrong side of the tracks, but we had to be able to relate to them. Of course, most of Tarantino’s imitators were rubbish, leaving the man himself to bask in glory. However, when Scott Rosenberg gave his brilliant script to director Felder, something special was created- a Tarantinio beater.

TTDIDWYD suffered perhaps because of its title, and because it is more downbeat than much of what was being released at the time. Some reviews here have strangely dared to say that the dialogue is crap, that certain scenes to do not ‘further the narrative’. How odd, and these people love Tarantino? For whatever reason, the film has largely been forgotten about, but with the cast it has i’m sure more people will come to it and find what a gem it is. Truly it has one of the best casts ever- Walken, Garcia, Lloyd, Buscemi, Balk, Anwar, Warden, Bill Nunn, Treat Williams, and they all give near career bests. The plot sees Jimmy the Saint brought out of retirement for one last job by his psychotic ex mob boss, played terrifyingly by Walken. For the job he needs to recruit some of his old gang- Pieces (Lloyd), Franchise (Forsythe), Easy Wind (Nunn), and reluctantly Critical Bill (Williams). Each man is out of the game, but this job will pay them for the rest of their lives and they can retire in peace. The job is simple- Walken’s son lost his mind after his girlfriend left him for another guy. The other guy is coming to town, so Jimmy and his gang scare him into leaving the girl, so that Walken’s son will be happy again. This will in turn give Walken’s life meaning again. Things go horrifically wrong though, and each member of the gang is given 48 hours to live. As this is happening, Jimmy has fallen for Anwar, but can’t be with her. He tries to get his friends to run for safety, but they refuse, willing to accept whatever happens. Jimmy also stays to try and do some right in his life- giving the engagement ring to Anwar and her fiancée, and saving local whore Balk from wasting her life, giving her a child. Soon the inevitable happens as the unstoppable assassin (Buscemi) comes to town, but not before Jimmy exacts perfect revenge.

The script is easily one of the best of the last 50 years, full of quotable dialogue “I am Godzilla! You are Japan!” , but full of meaning, heart, and existential dreaming. The whole story revolves around life and death, how we will be remembered in death for our achievements in life, and giving hope to the living as we die. Every character is extraordinarily drawn, with depth and individuality. Jimmy tries to save his friends but their pride means he has to accept their decisions. He may be a gangster, but he knows what is right, moral rules are forever more important than the laws of Cops and Robbers. Pieces works in a porno theatre with the painful loss of strength in his hands, but he knows that back in the day they were at the top of their league. Walken is genuinely Evil as the man with the plan, Buscemi is brilliant as Mr Sssh, and Williams is a forgotten man- a self serving patriot, guns framed on his walls, ready to protect himself from invasion at anytime. Anwar and Nicolsi (as Walken’s son) deserve special mention, both get our sympathy as they are trapped in a situation they are not part of, and do not deserve what happens to them. There are too many characters and traits to list, ensuring that I at least will continue to find new things with every viewing.

Although there is strong sentimentality, there is plenty of violence and strong language to balance everything, and as i’ve said before, sentimentality is nothing to be ashamed of-in life or in movie making. The film is not meant to be completely bleak and hard hitting, and it is a sad sign of our times when we berate a film for being sentimental. Much like the Shawshank Redemption in effect this film will leave you with hope. A breathtaking film which will stay with you forever if you let it. 10 out of 10
