Tim Cogshell Sits Down with the Young Stars of an Old School Western – Angels and Outlaws


Angels and Outlaws is not a Clint Eastwood production – exactly – but his many “productions” – so to speak – are most relevant to this rooting-tooting blood soaked western. A bad guys and worse gals immorality tale that stars his daughter Francesca Eastwood, his ex Frances Fisher, and his sense of the western narrative – the unrighteous man (or woman) with a horse and a gun. Or- just a gun.

CineBites – Joe Dante on Hollywood Remakes, CGI and Telling Good Stories

By: Tim Cogshell –

For more than 40 years in films ranging from the edgy Hollywood Boulevard (1976) to his iconic creature characters in Gremlins, to his youth adventures like Explorers (featuring the child Ethan Hawke) and The Hole, not to mention his horror classics, which include Piranha (1978) and The Howling (1981), Joe Dante has been a master of every genre and technology in the art of filmmaking.

Joe’s new film is a horror comedy about relationships.  The title,  Burying the EX, should be taken both figuratively and literally, and both the humor and the horror are achieved the old school way, with practical sfx, sight-gags and witty repartee’.

Dante and his young cast talked with us about their movie and – most importantly – the influence of Joe Dante and his contemporaries on the movies we love today.
