To compare it to The Endless Summer is fruitless (and not wholly because they’re chasing during the winter season) because this is a different kind of documentary.

FORGET Blade and Buffy. In the 1800s it was all about Abraham Lincoln the vampire slayer.
Thanks to MADMAN & NIXCO we have 5 Double Passes of BERNIE to giveaway.
If you know nothing about skaters then I couldn’t recommend this higher. But if you’re after any old skate doco, stick with Dogtown & Z-Boys. They showed us how it’s done. This has a lot of heart but doesn’t have the (funds?) to get a little heavier. But the soundtrack is flipping excellent. And it’ll inspire you to light up if you’re like me.
Best-selling author Charlaine Harris is taking the cinematic super heroine and making her a whole lot more relatable.
Ben Walker and Seth Grahame-Smith were recently in Australia to promote the film and Dale Sinden from That Movie Show chatted to them about the challenges of working with a Russian director on an American Civil War film with vampires.

The 1st Trailer for Ang Lee’s new film ‘Life of Pi’ is quite simply, electric. My ticket’s sold, perhaps even pre-ordered.
“Rock ‘n roll. Deal with it.” – Steven Soderbergh’s new film feels much the same as this loose, lazy phrase.
This week we dissect another one of Dale’s favourite films of all time – Stanley Kramer’s It’s a Mad Mad MAd Mad World (1963).
A new book The Art and Making of the Dark Knight Trilogy has been released to coincide with the completion of Christopher Nolan’s Batman series with The Dark Knight Rises. Collider via the SHH forums has has…
While reading Cam Williams’ great new Five Star Films: Back to the Future I was struck like lightning to the clock-tower with the inspiration for the latest ‘Put This On A T-Shirt’. Yes, it’s a little wrong but it’s oh so right.
Magic Mike features great performances from Tatum and McConaughey; it’s well guided but the assured directorial eye of Soderbergh but the slavishly conventional resolution made me keep the larger bills in my pocket.
Putting my love for Back to the Future into words has been terrifying, but it’s one of the greatest mainstream Hollywood films ever made. It’s the complete genre transcending package, so come and geek-out with me at 88mph.
What do we know from the trailer? It offers a glimpse into the powerful influence Lancaster Dodd (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) must have over everyone he meets and hints at hiding something deep under his skin. In turn, we get to properly meet Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who seems desperate to connect with someone and receive direction in his life.

Full frontal dickage, it’s something you just don’t see in mainstream cinema. Oh sure, you could start a drinking game and take a shot for every time some hot, young starlet shows her boobs. But male nudity . . . it rarely happens.
