1977 was a year in which many cinematic classics were released – Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Annie Hall, The Goodbye Girl, & The Spy Who Loved Me just to name a few. Yet when Roger Ebert made his list of the 10 best films from 1977 his top pick was a film most haven’t even heard of, much less seen – 3 Women. I recently saw the Criterion edition DVD sitting in my local library and knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see what all the fuss was about. I wasn’t disappointed. (more…)

The folks over at MovieWeb sat down with Mark Millar, the guy behind the “Kick-Ass” comics.  Among other things, he talks about where he’s going in the next installment.  I had a really good time watching the first one.  It was about as funny a popcorn movie as you could hope for. But “Balls to the Wall” is about the dumbest sequel name I’ve heard since “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit”.  Anyway what really caught my attention was that it has a plot similar to the cult-classic “The Warriors”.  I wonder if he means the comics or the movie? Here’s what he had to say:

“This is a guy [Red Mist] who has had his entire family killed by Hit Girl. He heads off and develops his martial arts skills. He learns how to become a better villain. That type of thing. He is going to come back and wreck unholy vengeance on our team. But in reality, he just comes back and gets stoned, and he spends a lot of money. He can’t do anything, so he hires this bad ass girl from Russia, she comes into the story, and her plan is to kill Hit Girl. Red Mist becomes like Charles Manson. He goes on-line and influences a bunch of young villains to go against Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. The whole thing ends up as a big gang fight like you’d see in The Warriors. There is going to be a big gang fight in the middle of Times Square between all of these costumed heroes. And at the head will be the Red Mist and Hit Girl.”
