"...Piyapas Bhirombhakdi, Sarunyoo Wongkrchang, Pongpat Wachirabunjong, Chatchai Plengpanich, Johnny Anfone and Mai Charoenpura. Exotic and epic, The Legend of Suriyothai brings to life events that occurred in 16th-century Thailand..."
"...Saturday night, Depp and Robinson partook in another interview session in front of a few hundred students in the Texas Union Theatre on the UT campus, this time moderated by another UT legend, Professor John Pierson, the author of Spike, Mike, Slackers & Dykes. The Rum Diary distribution company, Film District (the new company also has Drive in current play), promises that interview will be available online once the film comes out this Friday, October 28...."

"...What happened to Walter Hill (I asked this of Michael MacCambridge at the screening, and he suggested this film needed Eddie Murphy)? No other talented director (Hard Times, The Driver, 48HRS., The Long Riders) has made so many bad movies from good ideas (Streets of Fire, Crossroads, Johnny Handsome). In a recent issue of the New York Times they asked legendary scriptwriter John Milius, who wrote the first draft of Geronimo, what he thought of the finished film..."
"...If you want to see Johnny Depp in a revisionist Western, check out 2011’s Rango, in which the actor gives voice to an animated chameleon in a Wild West town, or Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man from 1995, in which Depp plays an Eastern accountant who takes the train west to the end of the line where he encounters a world both comic and violent, guided into the spirit world by a Native American named Nobody. But reuniting here with his Rango and Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski for a culturally evolved retelling of the radio and TV legend of the Lone Ranger and Tonto, Depp does the modern Western few favors..."

"...The memory of the mythical Austin of yore continues to grow mistier, as we seem to lose more legends than most cities ever have. On Valentine's Day, Austin lost yet another legend: Johnny Torrez, the Commissioner of Comedy..."
"...As for flat-out first impressions, that prize was clearly taken by Boerne's Big Bill Lister, whose cowboy poet look -- wind-bitten face, gravy-colored Stetson, and jaunty plaid string tie -- drew knowing eyes away from BR5-49er Gary Bennett's fresh-faced cowpunk reverence and Greil Marcus' streetwise intellectualist charm. It was Lister, too, who was the most entertaining: A former friend and sidekick of Williams, he regaled the eager crowd with bass-note tales of life on the Hadacol wagon train, the strength of legendary country singer's humility, and tarp-and-rainstorm tales of lost-and-found Williams acetates..."
"...Valuable experience for an aspiring musician, but even better because he fulfilled musical dreams like booking Little Richard at the Forty Acres Fest. Even that didn't sate his appetite for promotion: On Saturday, March 31, he's booked rockabilly cult favorite Johnny Legend at the Continental Club, along with San Antonio garage titans Sons of Hercules and Austin's reigning kings of Red River, the OBN III's...."
"...The way they shine and roll all wrong under those drooping, cold-blooded lids is method acting straight from the original amphetamine reptile. Dope, guns, and fucking in the streets? Both real and reel Cash lived for all three and survived often enough to become a legend not once but twice..."
"...Jackieboy wants to win back his beloved Black Pearl and keep his neck intact, if not necessarily in that order. Barbossa wants Blackbeard dead, being that he's the one responsible for a prior loss of limb, and Blackbeard wants what all pirates want: eternal life or something like it (like, say, a legend that a future film company could use to make billions of dollars)..."
"...This documentary about the final concert tour of country-music crossover legend Glen Campbell that was undertaken while the singer-songwriter was descending into the haze of Alzheimer’s disease is a courageous piece of work. It’s also, by turns, hilarious, harrowing, hopeful, and sad..."
"...At Beaumont High School, the budding six-string virtuoso came billed as Johnny "Cool Daddy" Winter. In his teens, he established himself at Austin's legendary psychedelic shack, the Vulcan Gas Company..."
"...He didn't pick "Every Night About This Time" to associate himself with the ultra-hip L.A. cowpunk scene, or because cult legend Joe Ely covered it..."
"...Directed by: Various. Andy Kaufman cohort and rockabilly great Johnny Legend presents a two-hour compilation of trailers including all genres from beach party movies to sex roughies, and all sorts of vintage sleaze and gore..."
"...In recognition of the release of Man on the Moon, the Alamo Drafthouse and The Show With No Name also present My Breakfast With Blassie, a spoof of Louis Malle’s My Dinner With Andre, along with a series of rare Kaufman film clips, live appearances, game-show cameos, Letterman appearances, and short features. Directed by the notorious Johnny Legend (movie producer, director, archivist, star, and rockabilly singer), My Breakfast With Blassie was shot over breakfast at Sambo’s with Kaufman and wrestling figure Fred Blassie..."
"...The legend of the 13th Floor Elevators and Texas psych in the Sixties has not diminished over the years. It's just that somewhere along the way, George Kinney's part of the legend was forgotten...."
"...It is another in my ongoing assaults on modern American film-writing. It addresses the subject of how, when legend becomes fact, the legend gets printed even when it comes to film history..."
"...When George Strait last played Austin in 2014, it was billed as the country legend’s final tour. The show’s celebratory if bittersweet aura marked the most dominant career of the genre..."
