Farewell Kim Jong-il, cinematic icon

We pay tribute to the love affair between Kim Jong-il and American film with a selection of the late, lampooned leader's finest screen moments, from 30 Rock to Team America

The death of Kim Jong-il has ignited many different reactions. Obituary writers have been able to look back on a lifetime of human rights abuses and expert cognac appreciation. Diplomats will look ahead to an uncertain period of transition as his son Kim Jong-un prepares to assume power. And the rest of us? We'll probably just unwittingly spend the day humming I'm So Ronery from Team America.

As an avowed cinephile, Kim Jong-il lived his life through film. He was rumoured to own more than 30,000 American films in his own personal collection; he also once kidnapped a South Korean film-maker to improve the cinema of North Korea, and he apparently banned the John Cusack film 2012 from release over fears that it

Actor and comedy legend Leslie Nielsen sadly passed away recently, and as if by magic the films that remained on the shelf for so long suddenly burst into the fore as everyone trys to score a quick cash-in.

'Stonerville' trailer: Is this Leslie Nielsen's final film?

'Stonerville' trailer: Is this Leslie Nielsen's final film?
A few weeks back, EW interviewed Bryan Waterman, a young filmmaker who was struggling to complete an animated film that featured the vocal talents of the late Leslie Nielsen. Nielsen also had some other projects in the can when he passed away on Nov. 28, but after seeing the trailer for Stonerville, I sincerely hope Mr. Waterman comes up with the funding for his film. I know Nielsen had a sense of humor about such things, but I’d hate for Nielsen’s last bow to be as a dazed film producer who’s getting serviced under his desk.

It’s not exactly Shakespeare,

Leslie Nielsen and Irvin Kershner Both Pass Away In Their 80s

Irvin Kershner dies at 87 years of Age!

The director of one of my favorite movies of all time has passed away today. The AP reports that Kershner, renowned for making the second Star Wars film, “The Empire Strikes Back”, has died in Los Angeles, his goddaughter Adriana Santini told the AP on Monday. He was 87 years old. Kershner, who besides the 1980 sci-fi epic also directed Sean Connery as James Bond in “Never Say Never Again” (1983) and Peter Wellerin “Robocop II” (1990), died at home after a long illness, said Santini, who lives in France. Born in Philadelphia in 1923, Kershner trained as a musician and in photography before starting making documentaries and then feature films.

Irvin was a graduate of the University of Southern California film school, and he was one of the first directors to be mentored under Roger Corman with his 1958 directorial debut Stakeout on Dope Street. Social alienation and

Patrick Cavanaugh Talks Transylmania

Recently Dread Central scribe Heather Wixson caught up with actor Patrick Cavanaugh to get the scoop on Transylmania and to maybe nibble a bit on the other white meat.

Heather Wixson: What can you tell us about your character, Pete?

Patrick Cavanaugh: Well, I consider Pete a lovable loser. He is a typical college dude who would rather drink and get high than go to class. He loves to hang out with his buddy Wang and basically see how much trouble they can get into.

Hw: What was it like working on the set of Transylmania? The trailers look hilarious so I was wondering if you had just as much fun making the movie as it looks like it was to shoot?

PC: We had an absolute Blast making this movie. I mean, first of all, we got to spend seven weeks in a far off land, making a
