Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Split Image'

February 3rd, 2012 10:05am EST
split Image photo
With so many older flicks hitting Blu-ray this week (although "The Piano" was sadly sans special features – damn you!) it felt like time to shed a little light on a hidden gem that hasn’t even made it’s way to DVD yet – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! If there were any justice in the home video world, this week’s selection would see a fully restored special edition with a cast group commentary that would blow every cinefile mind. (And I’m not talking a Tony Kaye cut of "American History X" with Edward Norton and Kaye tag-team commentary!) It’s a film about kidnapping and cults (not ne...

Peter Fonda Gave Little Brooke Shields Her First Horse

November 19th, 2011 8:30am EST
Wanda Nevada
Brooke Shields has magical memories of her 1979 movie "Wanda Nevada" because her director and co-star Peter Fonda gave her the horse she fell for on the set as a wrap gift.

The actress, who played the title role in the film, admits the "little filly" that she rode to and from the set as a child star was her first horse.

She tells WENN, "We were in Arizona and had to have horses and mules in the Grand Canyon. There was this sweet little filly and she basically failed racing school because she would trot forever and never break into a cantor and only go one way.

"You would sing the racing ...

Film Independent At LACMA Review - 'Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel' Inspiring But Incomplete

November 14th, 2011 3:10pm EST
Roger corman
Anyone doing a documentary on infamous B-movie master Roger Corman has got a plethora of product to draw from. As the driving force behind over three hundred plus titles equal parts good, bad and ugly, Corman’s career as both director and producer spans decades and the sheer magnitude of his body of work is both a blessing and a curse for newbie doc filmmaker Alex Stapleton and her flick "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" – inspiring but incomplete.

Corman’s story is one of an outsider deciding to embrace going against the grain. After working on an early Fox picture titled ...

'Hawaii Five-O' Recap: 'Mea Makamae' (2.04)

October 11th, 2011 2:01am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
Ladies and gentlemen, it's "name that guest star" week on Hawaii Five-O. Did you spot all the familiar faces? Unfortunately, they don't make up for the underlying flaws that are appearing to be common to this season.

A faux-Jaws opening leads us to discovering the hand of Blake Spencer, a salvage diver. (If you want to see my reaction to the resulting scene in Max's office, just watch Steve's face.) Into The Blue this is not (except for the mutual presence of Scott Caan).

Steve and Danny are soon learning about a mysterious next gig that may be the reason Blake ended up in pieces....

CSI
The CSI franchise has become a mainstay on CBS - and likewise it's a fixture on DVD shelves. With the new seasons underway, the previous years of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY have arrived for you to add to your collection. Here's a look at all three new releases.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Season 11

The Show: Season 11 is Laurence Fishburne's third and last as Dr. Raymond Langston. I'm pretty sure that I'm in the minority here, but I liked Fishburne and thought he did a decent job while facing an audience that was and still is incredibly attached to...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'This Is It,' 'Boondock Saints II' & More

October 27th, 2009 9:37am EDT
The House of the Devil
As a Bostonian I'm quite excited about the release of the Boston based sequel "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day." As a huge fan of the original, I've waited years to see a sequel come to fruition.

For nearly 10 years, director Troy Duffy struggled to make the follow up to his 1999 cult hit "Boondock Saints." A Hollywood outsider, Duffy suffered from bad press characterizing him as incredibly difficult to work with. This created a major roadblock for him as he sought funding to make a second movie about the MacManus brothers, but eventually he was able to raise the money to make it h...

Starpulse's 'Maxim.com Hot 100' Girl Of The Week: Jessica Biel

July 20th, 2007 12:30pm EDT
Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel is this week's 'Maxim Hot 100' girl! Head on over to Maxim's Jessica Biel page to check her out!

This blazing beauty first popped onto the scene (and into our thoughts) back in 1996 as Mary Camden on 7th Heaven. Her aspirations of moving on to a movie career led her to pose for a very risque (and very sexy) photoshoot for Gear magazine (copies of it can still be found on eBay for around 20 bucks!). But despite a small role in the 1997 Peter Fonda film Ulee's Gold, her career never really took off, and she returned to 7th in a number of guest spots and in a couple of bit pa...
