Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Untouchables'

January 11th, 2013 10:00am EST
The Untouchables
Since this weeks big release "Gangster Squad" is a shallow rip off of one of the greatest crime genre films ever made, why not go right to the source – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  We’re bypassing the subpar imitation and instead heading back to 1987 to covet the original.  It’s a film that worked so well because of an alignment of all the best elements – an amazing cast, stellar script and a director who knew how to add panache.  Never stop fighting till the fighting’s done – it’s..."The Untouchables!"

It’s a time of prohibition in Chicago and gangster Al Capone is cashing ...

'Lawless' And The Top 10 Prohibition Era Crime Films

August 29th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Lawless
Lawless follows a long tradition in Hollywood of portraying mobsters during their heydey, when they were relied on to keep America inebriated during prohibition. This list of top prohibition crime films includes flicks from the past 80 years - and here they are:

10. Bugsy (1991): This take on Bugsy Siegel's life isn't 100% accurate, but it does offer an interesting view of the evolution of mobsters when they moved west to Nevada and California to take advantage of gambling and the film industry. It received 11 Academy Award nominations, but only won 2.

9. The Public Enemy (1931): A...

5 Great TV To Cinema Adaptations

Arrested  Development
There’s not a week that goes by where I don’t do a Google search to scour the internet for the latest news on a possible cinematic adaptation of the cult television show “Arrested Development.” The show, which was cancelled back in 2006, never was able to attract a large mainstream audience. Its brand of offbeat humor was not for everyone, but those who appreciated it have formed an intensely devoted fan base. As a result, if anything, the show has attracted more notoriety since its cancellation, and gained an even bigger following when it came to DVD. Creator Mitchell Hurwitz has for y...

'Supernatural' 7.12 Recap: Dean Brings Sexy Back To The Future

It’s been a big week for “Supernatural” fans. The little show that could won two People’s Choice Awards (Favorite Network Drama and Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show). Suck it, “Vampire Diaries!” TVLine.com also reported that—SPOILER ALERT— “Supernatural” staple Jim Beaver will eventually return, and my favorite guest star, Mark Pellegrino will be reprising his fabulously evil turn as Lucifer in the episode 15. So this week's episode felt like icing on a very awesome pop cult cake.

“Time After Time” was artfully pieced together in a non-linear manner, but I’m going to do my best to break...

Happy 80th Birthday Sean Connery!

Happy 80th Birthday Sean Connery
Sean Connery, we salute you as you turn 80.

The veteran movie icon and one-time James Bond hits octogenarian status today and we are thrilled to pay tribute to Hollywood's great Scot.

From his humble beginnings in working class Edinburgh, Scotland, Connery has become one of his nation's favorite sons.

In over 70 films, Sean has been in more box office blockbusters than most - as well as his seven turns as 007, he has played Indiana Jones' father and enjoyed hits with modern classics like Highlander, The Untouchables, The Man Who Would Be King, The Name of the Rose and The Hunt for Red Oc...

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

November 13th, 2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.

2008 Tribeca Film Festival Spotlight: Redbelt

May 1st, 2008 4:12pm EDT
Redbelt
A few months ago, a rock 'em, sock 'em film called "Never Back Down" was released and broke the mold of fighter movies by becoming the first in a probable long line of box office productions featuring the fighting style of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Now comes "Redbelt",

a film that prides itself more on the characters internal conflicts more so than the external ones.

How the heck to do you make a fighting movie in which the fighting itself is secondary? By using a complicated plot, of course. We have Mike Terry (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a MMA instructor who teaches his stude...

Matt Damon Could Play Lawman Eliot Ness in 'Torso'

Matt Damon
Matt Damon is set to recreate Kevin Costner's The Untouchables character, Eliot Ness, in toymaker Todd McFarlane's new comic book adaptation. McFarlane wants the star to play the man who jailed mob boss Al Capone in new movie "Torso."

The producer tells IESB.com "(Matt's) sort of young enough and he has that boyish charm that would work. I mean if you are sort of talking big, sort of well-known guys, a guy like (Leonardo) DiCaprio sort of fits that bill too - young enough, flamboyant enough. It's a young man's role. We need to bring that to people's attention how young this guy was."
