Stage Door: Christmas With the Crawfords

17 December 2014 10:25 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 Feeling the holiday spirit yet?

Jose here. It’s Christmas Eve in the Crawford household, and Joan (Joey Arias), and her children Christina (Chris March of Project Runway) and Christopher (Adam Davidson) are getting ready to receive a very special guest: Miss Hedda Hopper (Sherry Vine) who will broadcast a holiday special live from their home. As the perfectionist actress stresses to her children how important it is that they make a good impression - no wire hangers to be seen anywhere! - it becomes obvious that the holidays here are a truly special occasion, as many famous guests show up throughout the night (most of them mistakenly ringing the Crawford bell on their way to a party at Gary Cooper’s house).

Last seen in New York, twelve years ago, Christmas With the Crawfords is a hilarious parody that will certainly appeal to actressexuals who don’t mind their favorite divas being ridiculed. »

Lucinda Williams Talks About Her New Album, Adapting Her Dad's Poem and Her Favorite Christmas Music

12 December 2014 6:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ever since her Grammy-winning fifth album, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, introduced her to mainstream audiences in 1988, Lucinda Williams has been at the top of the nebulously-defined genre of "alt-country." Her instantly-recognizable voice and unique interpretation of country, blues and folk traditions have made her an indispensable part of the scene: If you didn't recognize her forlorn "Are You Alright?" in one of the key scenes of True Detective's first season, you probably cocked your head and said, "Who is that?" anyway. Williams released her 11th album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, this year, and contributed a »

Blu-ray / DVD Release Details for Muck, Starring Kane Hodder

8 December 2014 12:46 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” You may remember Judy Garland repeating these lines while clicking her heels together in The Wizard of Oz, but they’re also recited in desperation by a hunted woman in Muck, the writing/directing debut of Steve Wolsh that stars the Friday the 13th franchise’s Kane Hodder and is being released on Blu-ray and DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment on St. Patrick’s Day.

Following its limited theatrical run on March 13th, 2015, Muck, the middle entry of a planned trilogy, will come out on Blu-ray and DVD in its unrated form on March 17th. In addition to the official press release with full details, we also have a new trailer and poster for the film:

The History of the Forgotten ‘Wizard of Oz’ Sequel Starring Judy Garland’s Daughter

5 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This summer marked the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, and it was a big enough occasion that Warner Bros. not only retrofitted the classic fantasy film for a one-week IMAX 3D re-release but also spent $25m on marketing its brief return to theaters. Meanwhile, there’s absolutely no fanfare at all for the movie’s sequel, which also has a special birthday this year. No, I’m not referring to Return to Oz (which likely also won’t get much notice for its 30th anniversary next summer). There is another “Oz” movie that was more directly intended to be an official follow-up to the 1939 version, an animated feature titled Journey Back to Oz, which hit theaters on this day back in 1974. Aside from taking place soon after The Wizard of Oz and being mostly yet loosely adapted from L. Frank Baum’s second Oz book, “The Marvelous Land of Oz,” the »

TV Review: American Masters’ ‘Bing Crosby Rediscovered’

1 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Among music, radio, movies and (eventually, and grudgingly) TV, Bing Crosby crammed two or three careers into a single lifetime, which makes him prime fodder for “American Masters” treatment — representing, as he’s noted here, the “first multimedia star” of the 20th century. Still, the crooner’s personal life poses a hurdle that “Bing Crosby Rediscovered,” a generally first-rate documentary from writer-producer-director Robert Trachtenberg, struggles to clear. Ultimately, the mix feels about right, spending most of its time on why Crosby is worth remembering without ignoring his troubled children and allegations that he was an abusive father.

Drawing from access to Crosby’s archives granted by his estate, Trachtenberg weaves in some remarkable audio — from the singer arguing with Decca Records founder Jack Capp, to dictated messages about what to do regarding his children. It was a 1983 book by Crosby’s son Gary, accusing his father of abusive behavior, which clouded his father’s legacy, »

Legendary L.A. Puppeteer on Stage and Screen Bob Baker Dies at 90

28 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Bob Baker — the legendary puppeteer of stage and screen, and co-founder of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, the oldest and longest running children’s theater company in Los Angeles and in the world — died Friday of natural causes. He was 90.

The 25 Best Christmas Movies Ever Made

21 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Am I the only one who finds most Christmas movies hypocritical? They spend tens of millions on lavish productions, recreating Santa's workshop or some such, all to tell us that Christmas is not about material things but about simple pleasures. It's enough to make you long for the homespun, slightly threadbare charms of a classic Christmas movie, like "Meet Me in St. Louis," released 70 years ago this week (on November 22, 1944).

People remember the film for its radiant Judy Garland performance and its classic songs, but it's also worth noting that the family portrayed here is not always prosperous and happy. Its signature scene is angry little Margaret O'Brien whacking the snowmen to pieces, and its signature musical number is the saddest and most wistful of all Christmas standards, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," a song that yearns for happier times, "if the fates allow." Sometimes, as the song observes, »

The Antic Visions of Herbert Achternbusch

10 November 2014 3:57 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Das Gespenst (1982)

“I always have a simple story, but I tell it so fanatically and wildly and tenderly and cursingly and on fire and in need of being loved that you’ll find a slice of life in front of you.”

The first time I saw Herbert Achternbusch he was hypnotizing a chicken in Werner Herzog’s The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser. Anybody who has seen the film might recall the chicken, but who is Herbert Achternbusch? It is a question that cannot be simply answered. Achternbusch captions his entire artistic output with a paradox: ‘You don't have a chance, but use it’. Trying to make sense of his work, this epigram sounds appropriate.

Matters are not helped by the unavailability of most of his films on DVD. In Germany, a boxset devoted to Achternbusch is now out of print, although two key works—Heilt Hitler (1986) and Das Gespenst (1982)—remain in circulation. »

Technicolor at 100: Hollywood Legend Pivots From Colorful Past to the Future

4 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s one of the great, glorious names from Hollywood’s Golden Age. It conjures magical nights watching epics unspool on giant screens in rococo movie palaces. The word itself entered the language, as slang for “vivid.”

Steven Spielberg is one of the millions whose pulse quickened at the word’s very mention.

“You have to be almost my age to understand the excitement when a bigscreen feature film boasted in its main title credits ‘Color by Technicolor,’ ” he says. “It was a promise kept by thousands of Hollywood productions when great cameramen captured the natural wonders of the American landscape with colors so bright they could singe your eyes and make them moist.

“More than CinemaScope or 3D or even before Super Technirama 70 and Imax, Technicolor was Hollywood royalty, and could draw an audience in its early years as much as a Clark Gable, Errol Flynn or Judy Garland could. »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Movies: 10-1

10. Deliverance (1972)

Scene: Squeal Like a Piggy

Video: http://youtu.be/WqNMjZpSbnU

Word to the wise: just because someone plays a mighty fine banjo, it doesn’t mean he or any of his kin should be invited to your family picnic. Based on the James Dickey novel of the same name, Deliverance follows four businessmen as they decide to spend a weekend canoeing down a fictional river before it needs to be flooded. Lewis (Burt Reynolds) leads the crew as the most experienced, followed closely by Ed (Jon Voight). The two novices Bobby and Drew (Ned Beatty, Ronny Cox) also join them. So, in remote Georgia, the four men set out to take in the beauty of nature. Before setting off, they come across a group of mountain men, all of which appear to be inbred. Drew engages in a banjo duet with one of the teenagers, but he doesn’t »
