Apocalypse Now: Final Cut Review

Some movies demand to be seen on the big screen. I’m thinking of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Lawrence of Arabia, Andrei Rublev and yes, Apocalypse Now. And in the case of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 masterpiece, now you can do just that.

Playing in AMC theaters everywhere, the latest cut of the Vietnam War story can now be cherished in IMAX with the latest in Dolby Atmos sound. Just when you thought this nightmare couldn’t seem any more real, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut comes along to blow your mind in a whole new way.

By this point, most of you will know how it opens. Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard is laying in bed; his chest hair as dense as the Vietnam jungle. Staring at the fan spinning above him, we hear the sound of helicopter wings playing over The Rolling Stones’ “This is the End.” Only, it’s the beginning.

Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk review – going a round with golf's unsung heroes

Narrator Bill Murray adds some welcome merriment to this plod through the history of the sport’s bag men and women

Viewers and critics versed in golf lore can pass judgment on how well this documentary about caddies enhances their knowledge of the sport itself. But on the behalf of those utterly uninterested in golf, I can report that it is moderately interesting.

Director Jason Baffa’s film is a mostly bland, workmanlike amble through the history of caddies. However, the film does reveal that Bill Murray, noted golfing enthusiast and co-star of that revered comedy of golfing ribaldry Caddyshack (1980), can smooth talk a microphone with the best of the world’s slumming A-listers as a documentary narrator. Here, he enhances an otherwise plodding, cliche-riddled script with wry, tongue-in-cheek merriment, throwing in a delightful, fluting whimsy to his lilting, mock-Scots pronunciation of the name Carnoustie, which crops up a lot

Why Colts Owner Jim Irsay Paid $4 Million for David Gilmour’s ‘Black Strat’

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is the type of billionaire who will quote long passages from Pink Floyd’s The Wall to you when you answer the phone. And even if you don’t pick up, he’ll still leave a voicemail parroting the monumental double-album’s whole “collect call to Mrs. Floyd from Mr. Floyd” routine. He’s a superfan who once stormed the front of the crowd at Chicago’s Soldier Field to get closer to the band in 1977, when they played their Animals and Wish You Were Here albums in full.

An X-men Movie Was Almost Made in the 1980s at Orion Pictures and Here Are the Details

The world didn’t see the first big screen adaptation of the X-Men until the year 2000 under the direction of Bryan Singer. But that wasn’t the first attempt to bring the X-Men characters to the big screen. In the 1980s Marvel was pushing for one to be made.

Thanks to Polygon we have some details on the history of the project, which was inspired by the success of Richard Donner’s Superman. Marvel Comics was blowing up at the time, and Stan Lee was ready to start bringing their characters to the big screen.

Lee ended up sending out a Marvel ambassador, Alice Donenfeld-Vernoux, to the studios to try and spark some interest. There were a lot of rejections along way, but a Canadian studio called Nelvana, who was known for their animation work, saw the potential in an X-Men movie, and that’s what they wanted to do.

Bill Murray Remembers Punching Chevy Chase in the Face and Other Tales from Wild and Crazy Guys
In the 1980s, Walkmans and slap bracelets were popular, but comedians like Bill Murray and Chevy Chase were king. And a new book reveals that their lives were just as wild as the movies that they starred in.

For instance, Bill Murray, known for both kind and bizarre acts, once reportedly broke a heckler’s arm.

“According to people attending a performance of The National Lampoon Show in New York, after folk singer Martin Mull talked loudly throughout, [Bill] Murray attacked him backstage, bellowing, ‘I’LL Kill Him! I’LL Kill That F—–!'” Nick de Semlyen writes in Wild and

Underrated Movie Sequel: Caddyshack 2 Wasn’t That Bad

Some sequels shouldn’t be made in the opinion of some folks, but then again, some sequels don’t seem to have a lot in common with the original movies and thus kind of stand on their own. That seems to be where a lot of folks get tripped up when they look at Caddyshack and Caddyshack II. Mike Mcgranaghan wrote that it’s not entirely possible to defend Caddyshack II because even the cast said that it was a horrible movie, but let’s play devil’s advocate here and take the time to really see how and why the movie isn’t as terrible

Bill Murray Recalls Caddies as Golf’s Unsung Heroes in ‘Loopers’ Doc Trailer (Exclusive Video)
Bill Murray still fondly remembers his days working as a “looper”: “You know, a caddie, a jock.” We’ll let this guy explain it to you.

In the new documentary “Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk,” Murray narrates the history of the caddie’s importance to the game of golf and even recounts some of his own memories.

“When I first started, I got three dollars a bag. Then they bumped it to four,” the former “Caddyshack” star says in the exclusive trailer obtained by TheWrap. “The money got out of control.”

Looking Back at the Legacy of Andrew G. Vajna

Tom Jolliffe looks back at the legacy of the late Andrew G. Vajna

When I was growing up I was fascinated by the video shop. Thousands of boxes displaying all manner of films. This was an era when cover art was particularly impressive. You could wander your eye over a shelf and scan until something caught your eye. Certificates? No bother. We could probably push our luck up to a 15. Maybe the occasional 18 if the old man knew mum was out for the night. The alternative was a friend’s older brother’s collection, which was a treasure trove of cult 80’s action and horror. There were films there that have gathered cult appeal in the years since, almost like he was ahead of the curve on enjoying them (Dark Angel with Dolph Lundgren as an example).

So you’d pick your tape. Younger readers, please don’t ask me what a VHS tape is.

Bill Murray Stories Documentary: Understanding Murray's Motives

Joseph Baxter Jan 18, 2019

The new documentary The Bill Murray Stories, showcasing real-life sightings of the eccentric comedy legend, is on Netflix now.

When thinking of the legend of Bill Murray, films like Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, and Lost in Translation come to mind.

The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man, the 2018 documentary which was recently released on Netflix, tells a different story. The film evokes an approachable-but-eccentric celebrity who tends to pop up in the weirdest, most random places. Filmmaker Tommy Avallone directed and wrote this poetic paean to the extracurricular activities of Murray; a tale strung together with sporadic accounts from ordinary folks across the country showing the most wonderfully random run-ins with the entertainment icon. Whether it’s joining someone’s ball game at the park, photobombing wedding shots, crashing parties, to just showing up at a doorstep, Murray’s curiously arbitrary thrill-seeking exploits have become the stuff of legend,

This article marks Part 16 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 1980 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“People Alone” from “The Competition

“Fame” from “Fame”

“Out Here on My Own” from “Fame”

“On the Road Again” from “Honeysuckle Rose

9 to 5” from “9 to 5

Won: “Fame” from “Fame”

Should’ve won: “9 to 5” from “9 to 5”

1980 marks a refreshingly sensational year for Best Original Song at the Oscars – and that’s even in spite of voters not recognizing the memorable likes of Blondie‘s “Call Me” (from “American Gigolo”); Kenny Loggins‘ “I’m Alright” (from “Caddyshack”); Olivia Newton-John‘s “Magic” (from “Xanadu”); and Neil Diamond‘s “America” (from “The Jazz Singer”).
