Stream of the Day: Ernest Dickerson’s ‘Surviving the Game’ Is More Than Just a Guilty Pleasure

Stream of the Day: Ernest Dickerson’s ‘Surviving the Game’ Is More Than Just a Guilty Pleasure
With readers turning to their home viewing options more than ever, this daily feature provides one new movie each day worth checking out on a major streaming platform.

The signature appeal of Spike Lee’s early films have Ernest Dickerson’s cinematography to thank as much as Lee’s own cinematic flourishes. Dickerson’s eye helped give many Spike Lee joints their distinctive look; it was a symbiotic pairing that would continue through much of their careers. But directing was always in Dickerson’s future. After making his debut with “Juice” in 1992, Dickerson took on one of the most adapted literary works of all time, Richard Connell’s 1924 short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.” He did so with mixed results, but introduced some provocative ideas that are still worth exploring today. “Surviving the Game” is a worthwhile flashback, given the current racial and political climate in America, as protests continue

From a young age, Trejo struggled with addiction and violence — he recalls burying a sawed-off shotgun and a hand grenade in his mother’s backyard — and frequently found himself in prison. But he eventually turned his life around,

South African director Richard Stanley helms this film enterprise. Film aficionados might recognize Stanley from his work on The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996).

Director John Frankenheimer (Reindeer Games) would.

Bob Weinstein Returns to a Hollywood Much Different Than the One He Left

Bob Weinstein Returns to a Hollywood Much Different Than the One He Left
Bob Weinstein is back, without his brother. The former Weinstein Co. co-chairman has formed a new production company that will focus on family films, comedies, and upscale adult thrillers. Unlike TWC, this company won’t be a distributor; instead, it will focus on producing up to three movies annually.

This puts Bob Weinstein in an unusual late-career position: Not only is he in business for the first time without Harvey Weinstein, he’s also in the role of seller. While he holds the title of executive producer on hundreds of films and TV shows, he earned all of them while being a distributor who acquired scripts for production as well as finished films as the co-head of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company, and chairman of Dimension Films.

As a full producer, he has three credits: the Ben Affleck action film “Reindeer Games” in 2000, and Guillermo del Toro’s “Mimic

  • Variety
With the holiday season in full swing, Netflix is beefing up its cache of classic films to watch from the comfort of your couch this December.

Ian Seabrook Helps Actors Like Charlize Theron, Ryan Reynolds Feel Comfortable Underwater
From a young age, Ian Seabrook knew he wanted to be an underwater photographer. He made his first dive in 1988; a decade later, he filmed underwater for the first time on a Bud Lite commercial.

His work now spans three decades of television and studio productions, and this year, several big-budget films and TV shows feature his photography. They include “Deadpool 2,” which is being released May 18; episodes of Netflix’s “Lost in Space” revamp; TNT’s “Snowpiercer”; and the recently released “Tully,” from screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman.

On “Tully,” Seabrook had his work cut out for him. The story follows an exhausted mom of three, played by Charlize Theron. Reitman had never directed underwater scenes but was eager to learn the techniques that Seabrook has perfected over the years. Prior to shooting those sequences, which feature Theron and co-star Mackenzie Davis underwater in a car, Reitman met with Seabrook,

Ronin Starring Robert DeNiro Available on Blu-ray August 29th from Arrow Video

Ronin Starring Robert DeNiro and directed by John Frankenheimer will be available from Arrow Academy on August 28th.

Ronin: Noun, historical. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord.

From director John Frankenheimer (Reindeer Games, The Manchurian Candidate) comes Ronin, a pulse-pounding, action-packed crime thriller featuring an all-star cast headlined by Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Heat) and Jean Reno (Léon: The Professional).

On a rain-swept night in Paris, an international crack team of professional thieves assembles, summoned by a shady crime syndicate fronted by the enigmatic Deirdre (Natascha McElhone, The Devil’s Own). Their mission: to steal a heavily guarded briefcase from armed mobsters, its contents undisclosed. But what begins as a routine heist soon spirals into chaos, with the group beset by a series of double-crosses and constantly shifting allegiances, and it falls to world-weary former CIA strategist Sam (De Niro) and laconic Frenchman

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

Ben Affleck’s Batman: The already troubled history of The Batman

Luke Owen looks at the already troubled history of Ben Affleck’s The Batman

It was news that concerned fans of the faltering Dceu when it was confirmed that Ben Affleck will no longer direct The Batman, which is still supposed to be released next year. This bad news about The Batman follows rumours that Justice League is a mess, as is Wonder Woman, and The Flash is getting a page-one re-write following the departure of its second director.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film.

Disney Eyeing Will Smith For Live-Action Dumbo Flick

I know what you’re thinking. You love the idea of Dumbo being remade into a live-action movie, but were worried by its serious lack of Will Smith, right? I know. I’m a mind reader.

In all seriousness, though, Disney’s recent trend in remaking their animated classics for the big screen is one that both elates and frustrates. On one end, it’s hard not to roll your eyes at the laziness inherent in the whole deal. Their properties are so well known that these films are bound to make some kind of profit, not matter how bad. On the other hand, the House of Mouse has already proven with films like Cinderella and The Jungle Book that a lazy idea does not necessarily mean lazy execution. So long as they put great talent both in front of and behind the camera, there’s a good chance they

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star.

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing.
