Time Machine: Veterans Wallach and Coppola - Godfather 3 in Common - Are Special Oscar Honorees

24 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010. See also: "Doris Day Inexplicably Snubbed by Academy," "Maureen O'Hara Honorary Oscar," "Honorary Oscars: Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo Among Rare Women Recipients," and "Hayao Miyazaki Getting Honorary Oscar." Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Taraji P. Henson and Mumford & Sons

11 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a slow start to 2015 (anniversary special excluded), the last two weeks of “Saturday Night Live” have been a return to form. Both the Dwayne Johnson and Michael Keaton episodes were excellent, now the show has the chance to complete the trifecta with Taraji P. Henson as host. There’s bound to be at least one “Empire”-centric sketch tonight (probably involving musical guest Mumford & Sons, because why not), but personally? I’m hoping Taran Killam gets to bust out his amazing Brad Pitt impression opposite Henson in a parody of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.” (Those banking on a “Person Of Interest" parody might be disappointed.) Still, there’s far more than parodies planned tonight, and as per usual, I’ll be covering them in liveblog form. Follow along starting at 11:30 pm Est, and leave your comments throughout the show as I grade each segment in real time. »

‘Serena’ is an incoherent mess

29 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Serena

Written for the screen by Christopher Kyle

Directed by Susanne Bier

USA/France/Czech Republic, 2014

Based on a bestselling novel by Ron Rash, Serena, as brought to the screen by director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Christopher Kyle, feels like a husk of an adaptation even to one completely unfamiliar with the source material. It’s the sort of film that, at least in the form prepped for theatrical release, makes one inclined to believe its makers have completely lost the ability to tell a story. And it’s not like that ever seems like a deliberate stylistic choice, with Bier actually focusing on some thematic flourish off on the sidelines. Serena is always focused on its plot. Its perpetually rushed, choppily told, borderline confusing plot.

Part of the trouble in the telling is that the film’s a tonal mess. In her native Denmark, and with American cinema forays »

Watch: Is This Kid Really a Reincarnated1930s Hollywood Actor?

26 March 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

The joke about reincarnation has always been that too many people claim to have been famous in past lives. They were Cleopatra or Abraham Lincoln or someone of such historical notoriety. Now a little boy from Oklahoma says he was a Hollywood actor in the 1930s. But he wasn't Clark Gable or Greta Garbo or Cary Grant or Mae West.

Watch: Meet the Kid Who Claims to Be the Reincarnation of a 1930s Hollywood Actor

The joke about reincarnation has always been that too many people make claim to having been famous in past lives. They were Cleopatra or Abraham Lincoln or someone of such historical notoriety. Now a little boy from Oklahoma says he was a Hollywood actor in the 1930s. But he wasn't Clark Gable or Greta Garbo or Cary Grant or Mae West. He was an extra with no lines in West's movie debut, however. The name of the guy he pointed out as himself in an image from 1932's Night After Night: Marty Martyn. The kid, Ryan Hammons, recently appeared with his mother on Today to tell the unbelievable story. When he was four years old, he began having nightmares related to his reincarnation, and a year later he told his mother he believed he was a Broadway dancer who went to...

Bill Hickman: Hollywood's Wheelman

17 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By

Alex Simon

Hollywood, like any place that is more about its lore than the actual sum of its parts, is full of unsung heroes who have given audiences some of their most cherished cinematic moments. Odds are if you’re a movie buff, you’ll remember the car chases in iconic films like Bullitt, The French Connection and The Seven-Ups. Stuntman, stunt driver and later, stunt coordinator Bill Hickman was one of those people who remained virtually anonymous during his lifetime, but is responsible for some of cinema’s most iconic, and hair-raising moments.

The Los Angeles native was born in 1921 and had been working in Hollywood for ten years before landing his first (visible) role in Stanley Kramer’s legendary The Wild One, the 1953 film that cemented star Marlon Brando’s status as an icon of post-war teen rebellion. Hickman can be seen as one of Brando’s »

‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Jim Parsons on His Road to the Hollywood Walk of Fame

11 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jim Parsons first strolled the Hollywood Walk of Fame as a teenage tourist from Houston, he didn’t have the sort of epiphany Sheldon Cooper lives for.

“I already enjoyed acting,” Parsons says on a break from shooting “The Big Bang Theory.” But “there was not some sort of sense of ‘maybe one day.’ It did not even enter my mind.”

Parsons is delighted, in his own quiet way, to become a name on Hollywood Boulevard. “I like how all-encompassing it is,” Parsons says. “It could be radio announcers you have never seen before or very, very visible and famous actors.”

The busy thesp is preparing for his third run on Broadway in the spring, but his star is in the TV category for playing the socially maladroit, brilliant physicist Cooper on the mega-hit CBS comedy. During its eight seasons, Parsons has continued to expand the role, though he »

The Story Of Film: An Odyssey – The DVD Review

10 March 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I love the movies, really, truly I do, I love the movies. Cinema, motion pictures, movies, film, whatever you want to label this peculiar art form that we all cherish here at We Are Movie Geeks, I have loved it ever since the first time I saw a movie on television, in a theater or at a drive-in. I wish I could recall the first movie I ever saw and what the medium was in which I saw it.

One of my earliest memories was the yearly showing of Wizard of Oz on television and my delight at seeing Judy Garland in a different movie, Pigskin Parade, and realizing that actors made a living by appearing in more than one movie or television series.

I can recall seeing Battle Beyond the Stars at the Pine Hill Drive-in in Piedmont, Missouri, one of the Russian space movies bought and re-edited by Roger Corman. »

Sun Valley Festival Celebrates Hollywood Connection

4 March 2015 1:14 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a community less than 80 years old, with a population south of 2,000, Sun Valley, Idaho, boasts a rich Hollywood history. It might have to do with being partly the invention of Averell Harriman, who invited celebrities like Ernest Hemingway, Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe to help shine a light on the newfangled resort town in the ’30s.

In ensuing years, a kind of 24-hour party train called the Snowball Special would roll in on Friday night from L.A.’s Union Station, just in time for the glitterati to recover and hit the slopes by Saturday morning.

So when screenwriter Teddy Grennan arrived one summer after getting fired from a job by Fox Searchlight and “moping around town,” the idea of starting a film festival seemed to draw on tradition and give him a sense of purpose.

“I called a couple of friends of mine,” recalls the fest executive director. »

Vince Vaughn on Moving Into Adult Storytelling with ‘True Detective’

4 March 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vince Vaughn moved to Hollywood at age 18, straight out of high school. And, like many starry-eyed aspiring actors, one of his first stops was Grauman’s Chinese Theatre to see where famous stars like Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe had encased their hands and feet in cement.

More than 25 years later, much has changed. It’s now called the Tcl Chinese Theatre. Many other actors have been added from Jennifer Aniston to Tom Cruise. And Vaughn has gone from struggling actor to bonafide movie star, with hits like “The Lost World,” “Wedding Crashers” and “Old School” on his resume. His latest comedy, “Unfinished Business,” hits theaters March 6.

So when Vaughn was told the theater wanted to encase his hands and feet in cement in the forecourt on March 4, he was thrilled.

“Getting the letter asking me, I thought about growing up and being a fan of all those folks,” he says. »

Movita Castaneda, Actress and Wife of Marlon Brando, Dies at 98

17 February 2015 9:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Actress Movita Castaneda — the second of Marlon Brando’s three wives, who appeared in such films as Mutiny on the Bounty opposite Clark Gable and Fort Apache with John Wayne — has died. She was believed to be 98. Castaneda died Thursday in a Los Angeles rehabilitation center after suffering a neck injury, a family friend told the Los Angeles Times.  Castaneda played Tehani, a beautiful Tahitian who marries one of the insurgent sailors, in the 1935 version of Mutiny on the Bounty. The film was remade in 1962 with Brando, then Castaneda’s husband, playing the Gable role of Fletcher Christian. In

Film Review: ‘Three Touches’

3 February 2015 9:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marco Risi (“Fortapasc”) has made a few good movies, which is why nothing quite prepares viewers for the train wreck that is “Three Touches.” Rampant homophobia may be the worst of its sins, but there are plenty others to choose from: absence of tone, a lousy script, overwrought situations, misogyny, etc. Designed as an insightful look into the lives of six struggling thesps (each character bears the first name of the actor), brought together via friendly soccer matches, the pic is little more than a ludicrous explosion of testosterone. Italo audiences stayed away during its brief late November run.

Given some of the talent involved, especially among the cameos (which even include Paolo Sorrentino, basically as himself), far more was to be expected. Yet right from the start, with feverish recitations of the Lord’s Prayer, the viewer’s first instinct is to shout: “Calm down!” Max (Massimiliano Benvenuto), one of the more agitated reciters, »

'It Happened One Night' (1934) - Best Movies #8

22 January 2015 11:25 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The above exchange from Frank Capra's romantic gem It Happened One Night doesn't necessarily give you any insight into the plot. Without the knowledge of what came before, or the visual of Claudet Colbert as spoiled sophisticate Ellie Andrews warily climbing into the car with the man she's traveled alongside from Florida to New York City, the joke probably doesn't pack much of an umph. But once you've seen this 1935 Best Picture winner as many times as I have, you never know which lines will jump out and make you laugh more than you previously did in the past. It Happened One Night is one of those wonderful Hollywood accidents. Neither Colbert nor her co-star, Clark Gable, were the first choices for the lead roles. In fact, it wasn't until Colbert won for Best Actress that she publicly thanked Capra for making the film (despite not even attending the Oscars, »

Golden Globes 2015: The 12 Things You're Most Likely to See at This Year's Ceremony

8 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A month from now, are you even going to remember who won the Golden Globes? And should you? After all, it's not like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the little group of entertainment journalists who give out the prizes, have loads of credibility, either as Oscar and Emmy prognosticators or as discerning film and TV critics.

But they do put on a heck of an awards show. This year's gala, the HFPA's 72nd, boasts a pair of popular and funny emcees, a glamorous gathering of TV and movie stars, a tribute to a certain Hollywood royal, and the possibility that the event's free-flowing alcohol and relaxed vibes will lead to something spontaneous and memorable happening. Oh yeah, and Sunday's proceedings will also offer a small hint at what could win at the Oscars in February. Here, then, are some things likely to catch your eye at the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony. »

‘Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1952′ #2 draws crosses in shadows

7 January 2015 4:59 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1952 #2

Written by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi

Art by Alex Maleev

Colors by Dave Stewart

Letters by Clem Robins

Published by Dark Horse

With Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1952, Mike Mignola set out to give a fresh start to everyone’s favorite nice guy demon. He’s been writing the character since the mid-90s, but still finding new a interesting ways to present the character and his world. As he did with Hellboy In Hell recently, Mignola places the titular character here in places not previously traversed and it is much appreciated.

Hellboy has always been, of course, inherently religious. There are no demons without angels, no Satan without God. And when one writes about a demon on Earth, the other stuff will always be there even if not explicitly referenced. 1952 doesn’t shine a light on the fires of »

Two of Redford's Biggest Box-Office Hits on TCM Tonight

6 January 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Redford movies: TCM shows 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' 'The Sting' They don't make movie stars like they used to, back in the days of Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Harry Cohn. That's what nostalgists have been bitching about for the last four or five decades; never mind the fact that movie stars have remained as big as ever despite the demise of the old studio system and the spectacular rise of television more than sixty years ago. This month of January 2015, Turner Classic Movies will be honoring one such post-studio era superstar: Robert Redford. Beginning this Monday evening, January 6, TCM will be presenting 15 Robert Redford movies. Tonight's entries include Redford's two biggest blockbusters, both directed by George Roy Hill and co-starring Paul Newman: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which turned Redford, already in his early 30s, into a major film star to rival Rudolph Valentino, »

On TCM: Conservative Actress Young in Audacious Movies

Loretta Young films as TCM celebrates her 102nd birthday (photo: Loretta Young ca. 1935) Loretta Young would have turned 102 years old today. Turner Classic Movies is celebrating the birthday of the Salt Lake City-born, Academy Award-winning actress today, January 6, 2015, with no less than ten Loretta Young films, most of them released by Warner Bros. in the early '30s. Young, who began her film career in a bit part in the 1927 Colleen Moore star vehicle Her Wild Oat, remained a Warners contract player from the late '20s up until 1933. (See also: "Loretta Young Movies.") Now, ten Loretta Young films on one day may sound like a lot, but one should remember that most Warner Bros. -- in fact, most Hollywood -- releases of the late '20s and early '30s were either B Movies or programmers. The latter were relatively short (usually 60 to 75 minutes) feature films starring A (or B+) performers, »
