Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Tex Montana Will Survive’ — A Free Movie For All If Goal Is Met
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Tex Montana Will Survive

Kickstarter and other crowdfunding options changed the game, offering an entirely new option for filmmakers, video game developers, comic book creators, and many others to bring their dream projects to life with money from those who are interested in the content instead of money from controlling bodies that might force creative changes.

As the concept of crowdfunding continues to evolve, those who use it often find new and unique ways to take advantage of it. One example of this is Tex Montana Will Survive, the latest movie from the makers of the micro-budget zombie flick The Battery (read our review here). Unlike most crowdfunding projects, co-directors Jeremy Gardner (who also stars) and Christian Stella aren’t looking to Kickstarter to acquire the funds to go into production on their new movie. In fact, it’s already 100% made. Instead, they’re thinking outside the box and looking to release the movie to everyone who wants to watch it for free if the goal is met. Yes, you read that correctly.

You can learn more about the intriguing campaign and watch both a trailer for the movie and the Kickstarter pitch video below.

Lady Death: Extinction Express #1

It wasn’t too long ago that we saw a couple of other Lady Death Kickstarters (Damnation Game and Chaos Rules) from creator Brian Pulido. I backed them both and was more than happy to do it again, it is Lady Death after all! As with his other fundraisers, Pulido sets realistic goals and puts together some amazing rewards.

Read on to find out more about Pulido’s new graphic novel Lady Death: Extinction Express, his latest venture into the world (or is that underworld) of Lady Death, and to watch the official Kickstarter video!

Massive Metal Monday: Quiet Riot “Bang Your Head (Metal Health)”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Quiet Riot Band Photo 1983

Quiet Riot was a staple of the late 1970s club scene in Los Angeles, contemporaries of the likes of a young band by the name of Van Halen. But whereas the big-time came calling on the latter band, Quiet Riot was left to languish by record companies, who were by then busy trying to cash in on disco and new wave. After releasing two records in Japan only, the band would temporarily go on hiatus when, in 1980, their superstar guitarist, Randy Rhoads, was selected to be the sideman to recently fired Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. Tragically, Rhoads’ life would be cut short just two years later in a plane crash while on tour in Florida. But, not before he had turned the world on its ear with his fiery, classical-inspired lead playing on Osbourne’s first two solo records.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Taxi Driver’ Turns 40
Stoogeypedia   |  

Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver, the pressure cooker of a film about one man’s lonely journey into a nether region of metaphoric and literal hell by way of a society that doesn’t even want to begin to understand him, celebrated its 40th anniversary over the weekend, opening in New York City on Feb 7th, 1976 and opening in a wide release on February 8th.

The film, an early masterpiece by director Martin Scorsese, who was coming off twin successes with Mean Streets and Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore respectively, is a stark, brutal, dark, and pulsing look into the open wound that was New York City circa 1975. During that turbulent and gritty time, the city was almost limping on legs from a bygone era that started to erode and disintegrate by the time the film was made. On cracked concrete streets, with asphalt that seemed to emit snakelike steam from its sewers could only a film like this be born. Taxi Driver stands as a true testament to the blood, sweat, and tears put forth by the creative triumvirate of Scorsese, writer Paul Schrader, and the lead actor who played one Travis Bickle, Robert De Niro, was already a legend even then when the cameras started rolling as production commenced.

Rotting Christ Band Photo

Greek black metal legends Rotting Christ are gearing up to release their thirteenth full-length album on February 12, 2016. The record is called Rituals and continues the band’s tradition of releasing some of the most interesting material in the genre. They have already blessed us with a sneak preview in the form of this week’s Black Metal Friday track “Tou Thanatou.” The title is taken from the Biblical passage Romans 7:24 (the King James version) and translates to “body of death.”

Disney In Depth: ‘The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’ (Studio Cast Recording) Soundtrack Review
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

The Hunchback of Notre Dame has always held a special place in my Mickey Mouse heart, as the film, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, significantly impacted me with its musical magnitude when first premiering in 1996 – at the time I was only a four-year-old kid.

Two decades later, the release of the studio cast recording from the production (which played at two American theaters over the past couple of years) reminds listeners of why Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz have crafted some of Disney’s most gripping and diverse music. The soundtrack’s successful sales figures is indicative that people are ready to embrace Hunchback again, and this serves as a great opportunity to review the studio cast recording, available on Amazon, iTunes, and other retailers.

‘Hail, Caesar!’: George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill Talk Working With Coens
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Josh Brolin and George Clooney in Hail, Caesar!

The Coen Brothers‘ long-gestating Hail, Caesar! is finally arriving into theaters this Friday. The film explores old Hollywood, an age where fixers are hired by major studios to keep actors out of trouble or clean up the trouble by handling the press. Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a fixer for Capitol Studios, not only has to deal with impending scandals, but also has to find out where a kidnapped Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is being held by a mysterious group called The Future.

We were recently invited to sit down at the film’s press conference where Brolin, Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Channing Tatum, and Jonah Hill were on hand to talk about the film’s comedy, not improving a perfect Coen Brothers’ script, not making any suggestions to Roger Deakins, and more.

Massive Metal Monday: Chthe’ilist “Voidspawn”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Chthe’ilist Band Photo

The answer is no… I don’t know how to pronounce their name either. What I do know is that Chthe’ilist is a two-man atmospheric death metal band from Canada that formed in 2010 from the ashes of the band Spheres. They released a demo titled Amechth’ntaas’m’rriachth which turned the metal underground on its ear in 2012. Now, nearly four years later comes the release of the duo’s full-length album Le Dernier Crépuscule, which came out January 29, 2016 on Profound Lore Records. Once again Chthe’ilist has grabbed the attention of the entire metal world. The album is absolutely amazing. If you are a death metal fan in any way, shape, or form, I highly recommend giving this record a listen. I played it straight through three times in a row upon first listen.

This week’s Massive Metal Monday track comes from Le Dernier Crépuscule. Check out the crushing track “Voidspawn” right here below and, as always, if you like what you’re hearing, buy a copy to support underground metal.
