Red Scorpion

This ‘Scorpion’ is king among ’80s action.


Action

Rod Lott
When The Expendables reinvigorated my love of Dolph Lundgren, the one movie I couldn't wait to get my hands on from his golden age of wide theatrical releases was the one I never got to see: 1988's Red Scorpion. So naturally, it was out-of-print.

CFN

Gazette staff
Oscar nominations notwithstanding, it turns out that spending $32 million on a meditative study on the meaning of our existence doesn’t make you the most popular kid in class.

The Girl

Every relationship has a Hitch.


Drama

Rod Lott
Sienna Miller looks every bit the Hitchcock blonde she plays in The Girl, an HBO original film about the relationship between actress Tippi Hedren and the director who gave her not only her big break, but big trouble.

Friends in high places


CFN

Gazette staff
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is known for some of cinema’s all-time finest tough-guy films — Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull — so when he ventures outside his crime-minded comfort zone, it raises eyebrows. (And have you seen his eyebrows?) News of him potentially directing a television special starring Yukon’s favorite son Garth Brooks would have CFN doing just that, but we got our brows waxed and plucked so thin, they barely move. Anyhow, according to The Las Vegas Sun, Brooks just wrapped up a three-year stint performing in Sin City, and real-estate mogul Steve Wynn says Marty “said he’d love to” shoot it for all of America’s eyeballs.

Hitchcock

It’s less suspense and more family plot in this muddled biopic of the master of suspense.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Alfred Hitchcock was more than the master of suspense. The director of such landmark motion pictures as Rear Window and Vertigo was instrumental in devising the language of modern film. As such, it seems a cruel irony that a movie about him would be made by decidedly lesser filmmakers.
