Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- One and a Half out of Five ‘Staches.

You can say I was intrigued from the start. Israel’s first horror/slasher film; as it is being billed. Finally, someone will provide a fresh take on an overdone genre that is in need or a real gem. Unfortunately, “Kalevet” (“Rabies”), is just convoluted mess of poor story telling and characters that are hard not to despise. (more…)

Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Four out of Five ‘Staches.

Open your Netflix account, close your eyes and click  around. The chance is high you’ll land on a movie revolving around cops, criminals, drugs and corruption. “The Guard,” the feature length directorial debut of writer John Michael McDonagh definitely fits this bill.  But through clever and witty writing, fantastic character portrayals and the smarts to not over complicate the story, “The Guard” is an absolute winner and one of the best films I have personally seen thus far at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.

This afternoon (Wednesday April 27th) I joined a group of about 15 other press and industry personnel for a round table discussion with Will Ferrell and Dan Rush, in regards to Mr. Rush’s directorial debut, “Everything Must Go.” The film, based on a Raymond Carver short story with a screenplay written by Rush, sees Will Ferrell as an alcoholic who on the day he is fired from his job, also finds out his wife has left him and left all of this things on their front lawn and had all the locks changed. My full review of the film is coming in the next few days and a transcription of the round table interview will be coming as well (the discussion was held outside and the wind makes it hard to post the audio). In the meantime, please enjoy these pictures from the event and keep your eyes peeled for the rest. Enjoy.

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) are bigger than ever. Boxing has taken a back seat and today’s fighting champs are seen as fearless, crazy and monstrous. At a base level, there is no mistaking that the sport is not for everyone. But everyone in the sport is not a monster and the skill, patience and sheer willpower it takes to excel in these endeavors are embodied in the current UFC middle weight champion, Anderson “The Spider” Silva.

Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Four out of Five ‘Staches.

It usually is a dangerous thing for a film to remind you too much of another. Richard Ayoade’s feature directing debut, “Submarine” (based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne) definitely channels some Wes Anderson style and spirit.  But while Ayoade draws inspiration from a few of his predecessors, his work goes far enough as to carve out its own brilliant niche in the world of films that deal with the pressures of life and misguided adolescence.

Below is a short interview I conducted with Michael Gambon (Dumbledore) and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) at the Harry Potter Exhibit at Discovery Times Sqaure to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:Part 1.  Apart from discussing the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the film, I tried to bring up some abnormal questions/discussions for the two stars. Enjoy. Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for more interviews with other stars of the movie. As well, some of the interviews I conducted will be posted exclusively on  Moviebuzzers.com, so keep your eyes trained there as well.
