Top Movie News for November 1, 2014
I know, it’s too early to start throwing Christmas movies at you. But this only looks like a Christmas movie. In fact, I believe this trailer for Jingle All the Way 2, starring Larry the Cable Guy, is actually a bunch of footage dressed up as a real movie for Halloween. Sadly, Larry does not play the character originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1996 movie. That might be a pretty good trick. He’s just another dad trying to get a great gift for his kid.

Years back, when there was talking of remaking The Crow O'Barr was vocally opposed, but all of that changed when Spanish director Javier Guiterrez flew out to visit O'Barr and explained that he wouldn't be remaking Alex Proyas' The Crow, but actually adapting O'Barr's original graphic novel.

Some independent movies are worth seeking out. Others remain obscure and hidden for a reason, and that seems to be why we haven't heard anything about Murder of a Cat, an indie comedy starring Cabin in the Woods scene stealer Fran Kranz along with an interesting mix of supporting players. The film follows a harmless oddball who is thoroughly upset that someone has just murdered his best friend, a cat named Mouser. J.K. Simmons is the investigating officer, and he soon learns that the cat was seemingly leading a double life. Yeah, it's about as stupid as it sounds.

Over the decades, David Warner has taken on a lot of roles in television shows and movies, but one role could've defined his career if not for a scheduling conflict. For me, I most recognize the Emmy Award winning actor as 'Chancellor Gorkon' from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the main antagonist of 1988's Waxwork, but at one time he could've been 'Freddy Krueger' in the 1984 horror-classic, A Nightmare On Elm Street. Wes Craven had originally wanted a stuntman for the role, but then quickly realized an actor was needed.

As the only Japanese film playing In Competition at the Tokyo International Film Festival, expectations were high and goodwill primed to cheer the root-of-all-evil tale “Pale Moon” as the local find of the week. And it has just now scooped the Audience Award, having earned at least mild praise from most critics, so really the only kink in that narrative is us, contrarians that we are. "Pale Moon," the fourth feature from director Daihachi Yoshida, is certainly more slickly made than some of the other competition titles here.
