Schofizzy's Movie Alphabet

Who doesn't love a good movie list? I know I do and recently was asked by @bobfreelander of Rupert Pupkin Speaks to do my own Alphabet Movie List. This sounded like a really fun idea and something that I could really get into. Working on the list I realized there a ton of movies I could put for nearly every letter of the alphabet but after much deliberation I've settled on these 26 titles. So without further ado checkout my ABCs below...

Tarantino's March Madness Pt.10

Over the course of March the New Beverly Cinema is housing Quentin Tarantino's March Madness. The whole month is in celebration of Quentin Tarantino's birthday and will feature 37 movies selected by the master himself. Most of the films that are playing come from Tarantino's personal collection and a number of them are not available on DVD. The month long programming will feature plenty of grindhouse movies that have been influential to Tarantino and plenty of others as well. Tarantino's March Madness will be capped off with a seven day run (a second week was added) of the uncut version to "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." I will be attending thirteen nights of programming at the New Beverly Cinema and in an effort to give my readers the most in-depth experience I can I've planned to breakdown each of the events. Hope you enjoy and here's Part Ten...

'The Wolverine' Loses Aronofsky

Let's be frank, very few actually liked the 'Wolverine' prequel directed by Gavin Hood, most actually hated it and aren't afraid to bash it whenever they get a chance. 20th Century Fox seems to want to do right by the franchise but since X-Men: The Last Stand things just don't seem to go their way. Which brings us to the most recent news, Darren Aronofsky has decided to step down from directing the sequel before it goes in front of cameras. Read the full scoop below...

Bobcat Goldthwait's Next Project

I love Bobcat Goldthwait. As a kid he appealed to my childlike sensibilities and now as an adult he appeals to grown-up sensibilities. Fuck, I even love his weird tattoo on his arm with a salted potato and a fork. The man is a quiet genius, not to mention a terribly sincere and loving guy. Ok ok, enough Bobcat praise and on to the actual meat of this post. Bobcat was recently on the Adam Carolla Show and briefly talked about his latest directing project. One that sounds like his own version of Natural Born Killers. Read the full details below...

Rebooting Robocop

If you follow along you know that remakes are a normal practice in Hollywood. Studios want and desire established stories and seem to fear original films. This is standard operating procedure but it doesn't mean it should be. Now I'm not against the idea of remaking film but there are certain properties we hold dear to our hearts and realizing that these will be remade can be a tough pill to swallow. Which brings me to the current status, news is heating up again that MGM is readying a "Robocop" remake. See the full report below...

The Wright Stuff II Rundown

Back in January at my favorite revival movie theater in Los Angeles, the New Beverly Cinema, director Edgar Wright hosted eighteen nights of awesome movie programming titled The Wright Stuff II. The event kicked off with a triple feature of Edgar's three most current titles Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Over the course of nearly three weeks of programming Edgar Wright hosted one midnight feature and eight double features that were influential to him as a filmmaker. Each evening included tons of special guests and Q&A's along with a barrel of classic trailers that coincided with the films being presented. I had the pleasure of attending the opening night triple feature and three of the double features. Below you can read my thoughts on those spectacular evenings...
