103108 Happy Halloween!!
.. . . . . .This one's for Denise! Here we go hun, start your Halloween with a trailer for the 'Friday the 13th' remake. I have to admit that Jason does indeed look intimidating in the brief clip of him charging at a victim. Maybe this will be a raw slasher worth checking out. The trailer is kinda spiffy but I do have a complaint, the trailer says this film is from the director of 'The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre'. Yeah, that's great except this film is NOT directed by Tobe Hooper, the director of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. 'Friday the 13th' is directed by Marcus Nispel, the director of the 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'
REMAKE. Would that have been too hard to say? I mean honestly, poor Tobe Hooper, thanks to modern marketing campaigns he is no longer the director of the film franchise he started!! What a gyp. Alright, I am off
my soapbox now. Plus, I have to admit that I still have not seen 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' remake nor its sequel. Sooner or later I'm sure I will see them and since Denise is psyched about the 'Friday the 13 th' remake, I can bet I will be
seeing it at the theater. Anyway, have a great Halloween one and all!!!! May your baskets be full of candy and boobies! 'Friday the 13th' opens on February 13th 2009. Check the official site for the 'Friday the 13th' remake HERE. See the 'Friday the 13th' trailer in small HERE, medium HERE, and large HERE.


102308 The first Real Political Face Talk interview goes live!
.. . . . . .The worlds first Real Political Face Talk interview has arrived. Filmmaker Alex Vlack did me a huge favor and answered some questions for an interview about his upcoming film 'Still Bill'. The film looks at musician Bill Withers who has been away from the music scene for quite some time. 'Still Bill' is currently slated for release sometime in 2009. As a fan of Mr. Withers and his music, I was 'pyched to see that there was going to be a film about his life and career. What is even better is Mr. Vlack sounds like a genuine fan of Mr. Withers and 'Sill Bill' seems like it is a true labor of love. You can see the official website for the film HERE. No more babble is necessary from me, go and check out the interview HERE. -Nate


101708 Head into the weekend with the teaser trailer for the upcoming Bill Withers documentary 'Still Bill'.
.. . . . . .I am a Bill Withers fan and sadly, his official website has had no new updates for awhile now (see his official site HERE.) I hadn’t been able to find any real current news about the man for some time. So, imagine my surprise when I was reading about Mr. Withers on wikipedia and I noticed a mention of a documentary about him called: ‘Still Bill’. The film is listed on wikipedia as being released this year but I was unable to find any information about when or where it will be showing (you can see the wikipedia page HERE.) The official website doesn’t offer much help and so far the film is not even listed on ‘Still Bill’s official site lists a “teaser” which is actually a seven minute preview for the film. It looks like a very enjoyable documentary and now I’m dying to see it. At the end of the teaser, the clip mentions the documentary as well as a tribute concert and soundtrack in “winter 2008”. I guess that is all there is to go on for now. If you are interested in the man and the film too than make do until an official release date by checking out the teaser at the ‘Still Bill’ site HERE. -Nate


101608 Happy Birthday Tom Sutpen!
.. . . . . .Ok, so I made the sad news post below which was made possible thanks to the work of Mr. Tom Sutpen (see below post for details) and then I realized it was the guy's birthday today! That was just way too much of a downer to let stand on his birthday. Hence, my Happy Birthday message to Mr. Sutpen! Thanks for all your great work on 'If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats'! To see what I am referring to, jump on over to the great blog 'If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats' HERE. -Nate


101608 William Claxton and Neal Hefti passed away.
.. . . . . .Shame on me for not mentioning the sad passing of photographer William Claxton and musician Neal Hefti. Calxton was primarily known for his photography of jazz musicians. I was particularly found of his photos of actor Steve McQueen. I was by no means an expert on Hefti but I was aware of his work and enjoyed what I heard of it. Here is the crazy thing: I guarantee you have heard his work too. In addition to having worked with some of the greats (like say Count Basie for example,) the man wrote the theme for 'The Odd Couple' (and the 'Batman' TV-series.) Leave it to the great Tom Sutpen to post when I should have on both counts. He also linked to an obituary. You can see his post's on the blog 'If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats' blog. Rest in peace gentlemen. See Sutpen's post about Claxton HERE and Hefti HERE. -Nate

101008 'Blu-ray Special or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Blue-ray'
.. . . . . . What we have here is a short article on my jump to Blu-ray. I love the format and am glad it is around but there are some problems you may want to be aware of before you take the leap. I am certainly no expert but if you are thinking about getting a player, check out this short write up before you do. I've also included some brief reviews of Blu-ray friendly PC software on the off chance someone else out there is thinking of playing their Blu-ray flics' on a PC. To check out the article go to the random page HERE or go directly to the 'Blu-ray special' HERE. -Nate


100208 'Another Way to Die' by Alicia Keys with Jack White from the upcoming Bond film 'Quantum of Solace'.
.. . . . . . I have been meaning to post about the new Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' forever but the release of the Alicia Keys/ Jack White music video (play to the left) got me off my lazy butt. I have to give credit where credit is due. The website that is more addicting than crack, 'The Superficial', is where I read about the video this morning (check out 'The Superficial' HERE.) Marc Foster is directing the sequel to the 2006 restart of the Bond franchise 'Casino Royal' (reviewed HERE.) The trailer makes the film look pretty sweet to me and Keys/ White song is catchy so hopefully this will be a strong follow up to 'Casino Royal'. I enjoyed Foster's film 'Monster's Ball' (although not as much as some seem to) and I also enjoyed his little seen film 'Stay' (reviewed HERE.)
'Quantum of Solace' has a catchy theme, a solid director, and a cool looking trailer. The film will be released in the USA on November 14. For those that haven't seen the trailer yet you can see it in small HERE, medium HERE, and large HERE. The official site can bee found HERE. -Nate


100108 Start October with a 'Feast'.
.. . . . . . Apparently I am the only one that loved the third season of 'Project Greenlight'. The show was a reality based TV series that followed filmmakers competing to create a feature. The end result was the horror film 'Feast'. Two writers, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton and one director, John Gulager (son of actor Clu Gulager) won the contest and their efforts (as well as others) resulted in the bloody, fun, film 'Feast'. Since then, I've been hoping the show would get a release on DVD whilst following the three winners to see what they did next. Dunstan and Melton continued writing and penned two of the 'Saw' sequels. They are both listed on IMDb as writing a film called 'The Midnight Man' that Dunstan will also direct. Gulager has not helmed a film since the 2005 'Feast' but this year he is listed on IMDb as being attached to a 2008 film: 'The Neighbor'. Not only that, but he is listed as directing two 'Feast' sequels that Dunstan and Melton wrote. The first sequel, 'Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds' goes straight to DVD on October 7th. The third film 'Feast 3: The Happy Ending' will come out later this year (I'm assuming.) While I have no idea if the film will be any good or not, I must admit I'm psyched to check it out. If nothing else I became fans of Gulager, Dunstan and Melton from the show and would love to see them continue to get work. The pieces of Gulager's work that were shown on 'Project Greenlight' made me want to see more of his
work. Plus, it was cool to see the senior Gulager still acting. He has a role in one of my favorite movie openings: the beginning of Don Siegel's 1964 made for TV movie, 'The Killers'. The first ten minutes or so of the film could exist by itself
as a short film. The sequence follows Gulager and Lee Marvin as two hitman that make their way through a school for the blind, terrorizing anyone who crossing their path. I know it doesn't sound like much but trust me, it is great stuff. Anyway, those of you who might want to see one or both of the Feast sequels can check out the trailer via Myspace by clicking the title card to the right. The DVD release lists a couple of special features and I have got to say I'm looking forward to the one called "meet the
Gulagers". There is not much in the way of official web pages to send you to. All that there is can be found at the Dimension Extreme page HERE. John Gulager has an official Myspace page, that only has a small amount of info and can be found HERE. -Nate
