The Love Punch review: Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson's heist movie

14 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Joel Hopkins; Screenwriter: Joel Hopkins; Starring: Emma Thompson, Pierce Brosnan, Tuppence Middleton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie; Running time: 94 mins; Certificate: 12A

Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson stay young at heart as a divorced couple plotting a jewel heist in this British Channel-hopping comedy. It's only old-fashioned in the sense that writer/director Joel Hopkins (who previously cast Thompson in grownup rom-com Last Chance Harvey) pitches it like the sort of mad screwball caper that Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant might have made in the 1930s.

In essence, that means the plot is a bunch of nonsense that contrives to get our creaky-boned heroes into impossible positions, both physically and figuratively. It's a bald-faced, cheeky approach by Hopkins that may grate on some viewers' nerves; feeling that perhaps a couple of virtual OAPs shouldn't be able to scale a cliff face – at least, not without being bitten by a radioactive spider first. »

Mickey Rooney Death: No More Survivors From Merrie Melodies’ ‘Hollywood Steps Out’

8 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Need more proof that Mickey Rooney was one of the few remaining stars from Hollywood's golden age? The “Boys Town” actor's death last weekend at the age of 93 means that the last survivor caricatured in the 1941 Merrie Melodies cartoon “Hollywood Steps Out” has gone to the big movie premiere in the sky. Also read: Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor, Dead at 93 In all, 46 stars were included in the Warner Bros.animated comedy short — a list that boasts such deceased movie icons as Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Rita Hayworth.

A Year With Kate: Bringing Up Baby (1938)

2 April 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 14 of 52 from Anne Marie's series screening Katharine Hepburn's films in chronological order.

In which there is a leopard on your roof and it’s my leopard and I have to get it down and to get it down I have to sing!

Bringing Up Baby is a movie I’m honestly a little afraid to discuss. This golden Howard Hawks comedy about a befuddled professor (Cary Grant), a ditzy socialite (Kate) and a leopard (Baby), rightly occupies many “best of” lists. But while we all know the legend behind the film--troubled production, loses money, critically panned, “box office poison,” etc--the reality is a little less dramatic. Well, except the critically panned part:

“In Bringing Up Baby Miss Hepburn has a role which calls for her to be breathless, senseless, and terribly, terribly fatiguing. She succeeds, and we can be callous enough to hint it is not entirely a matter of performance. »

'The Walking Dead,' 'The Following,' and 'Hannibal': Less is more when it comes to gore

28 March 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What, exactly, does getting stabbed sound like? It’s an issue to which the makers of Fox’s serial-killer drama The Following have clearly devoted serious consideration. Stabbings are the show’s money shots, and no effort has been spared to make them sound wet, dense, and destructive, as if a dagger were being plunged into a bag of overripe tomatoes, shaved ice, and Cap’n Crunch. NBC’s Hannibal is more interested in the look of ripping skin, constructing elaborate prostheses to show exactly what it’s like when epidermis is pulled away to expose glistening viscera. Ironically, none »

Library of Congress' Packard Campus: Rare Double Screening of Box Office Cataclysm

26 March 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Screwball comedy movies, rare screenings of epic box office disaster: Library of Congress’ Packard Theater in April 2014 (photo: Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in ‘The Awful Truth’) In April 2014, the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus Theater in Culpeper, Virginia, will celebrate Hollywood screwball comedy movies, from the Marx Brothers’ antics to Peter Bogdanovich’s early ’70s homage What’s Up, Doc?, a box office blockbuster starring Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal. Additionally, the Packard Theater will present a couple of rarities, including an epoch-making box office disaster that led to the demise of a major studio. Among Packard’s April 2014 screwball comedies are the following: Leo McCarey’s Duck Soup (Saturday, April 5) — actually more zany, wacky, and totally insane than merely "screwball" — in which Groucho Marx stars as the recently (un)elected dictator of Freedonia, abetted by siblings Harpo Marx and Chico Marx, in addition to Groucho’s perennial foil, »

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Best of Bogart Collection’ Highlights Four Must-Owns

26 March 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

There are handful of actors who will forever be ingrained in the canon of film history. John Wayne, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, James Dean, Gregory Peck, to name just a few. One of the most iconic actors of all time, Humphrey Bogart, gets his own four-movie Blu-ray collection this week. This is the kind of release that usually hits near Father’s Day. Get your shopping done early this year.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

There’s no company more adept at re-releasing already available product and making it seem fresh than Warner Bros. The four blu-rays included in “The Best of Bogart Collection” are literally just the four previously-available releases in a new case (and nowhere near as extensive career-wise as the DVD-only box set released for the legend a few years ago). They’re even stacked two on top of each other on each side. However, if you don’t own maybe »

Armistead Maupin Remembers “Tales Of The City” and Ponders The Future

21 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Armistead Maupin

Mention Tales Of  The City to pretty much any gay man of a certain age and a smile will creep across his face. He might also offer how the books helped him to come out.

The beloved series which began in 1976 might have wrapped up earlier this year with the publication of the ninth book,  The Days Of Anna Madrigal, but the classic series continues to attract fans, not only for the novels, but also for the groundbreaking Tales of the City film adaptations.

Adapted from the first three books in the series the movies featured an impressive cast, including Laura Linney as Mary Ann Singleton and Olympia Dukakis as Anna Madrigal. Those films will be celebrated this Saturday night with a screening by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

Maupin was on the road when he talked with us earlier this week about seeing the film again, »

'Muppets Most Wanted': Tina Fey compares Kermit the Frog to her other leading men

19 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

:

Tina Fey has had many leading men in her career, including Alec Baldwin on "30 Rock." For Kermit the Frog in "Muppets Most Wanted," that might have seemed like big shoes to fill. However, Fey confirms the Kermit is every bit as dashing as the very best actors throughout history.

"You can't to any better," she tells Zap2it during the "Muppets Most Wanted" junket. "Cary Grant is dead, so you can't do any better than that." As for how Kermit measures up to other men she's worked with, Fey admits, "He's much smaller, but I would say equally as charismatic."

For Fey, joining the Muppets world was something special, even though she's worked briefly with them on "Saturday Night Live," "30 Rock" and a couple episode of "Sesame Street." "To look around in a big wide shot and see every Muppet that you've ever seen in your life is thrilling, »

The Broken Circle Breakdown review: a mournful tune

11 March 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Electric sexiness and very modern motifs overlie a wonderfully old-fashioned melodrama… a highly gratifying one, if you enjoy a good ol’ weep. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read or seen the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s a love story, and not a particularly happy one, but it is highly gratifying… if you enjoy a good ol’ weep. Like a modern version of the 1941 Irene Dunne-Cary Grant tearjerker Penny Serenade, this is the tale of Didier (Johan Heldenbergh), a bluegrass musician, and Elise (Veerle Baetens), a tattoo artist, their romance and marriage, and how the diagnosis of cancer in their little daughter, Maybelle (Nell Cattrysse), strains their relationship. The electric sexiness of the chemistry between Heldenbergh and Baetens and the very modern motifs threading through the film — the deeply held significance »

Larry Moss, Dialect Coach, Dies at 83

10 March 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Larry Moss, dialect coach, as well as diction and acting tutor for many in Hollywood, died at his home in Santa Monica on Feb. 19. He was 83.

Moss prepped hundreds of film, television and theater actors for challenging roles. He was a master at accents with an ability to imitate not only dialects but the voices of many great actors, including Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. This gift extended to helping others with the various aspects of creative choices relating to voice and expressions of a character.

Moss was also an actor himself who voiced character and dialect roles in more than 300 films, appearing himself in some of them. He did half of the male character voices in one of the “Pippi Longstocking” films.

Moss taught his special abilities as a university-level lecturer and in private workshops; he also presided over Esl classes at Los Angeles City College. He frequently taught »

13 Ways in Which Red Riding Can Satisfy Your Jones for True Detective

10 March 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The stars of last night’s finale of True Detective were Errol Childress’ Cary Grant accent, his mentally challenged stepsister, his creepy labyrinth, and Rust’s epiphany about love in the universe—which sucked up air time at the expense of about 90% of the case details—details that, for my money, were far more interesting than Rust’s epiphany.  Will Rust exact revenge on the Tuttle family? Will Marty and Rust continue to fight crime together as private dicks? Why was Billy’s mouth sewn shut? If he was dead, why was he so well-preserved? Will we ever find out why Errol had those burn marks on his face? What was the song Errol was whistling? While speculative pairings for Season 2 abound on Twitter, actor Matthew McConaughey recently told a reporter, “We won't be back for season two…Season one was finite. Eight episodes, that's the [end of conversation].” So how are you »

True Detective: Flawed Finale to a Classic Series

If you thought it had something to do with Woody Harrelson's father-in-law - and this doesn't constitute a spoiler, because that was too off-base to ever be possible - you were wrong. In fact, just about every theory that cropped up online speculating about the finale of HBO's terrific True Detective (and inspiring writers to mention the notorious ending of Lost) was wrong. Now onto some real spoilers. The resolution of the sprawling mystery of who was committing the ritualized serial killing of young women and children grew, with surprising directness, out of the very last shot of the previous, »

'True Detective' Season Finale Recap: Rust And Marty Come Face To Face With Killer Errol Childress

9 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Rust Cohle and Marty Hart finally get their man, and almost lose their lives, in the season finale of HBO’s True Detective, “Form and Void.”

The episode started with our serial murderer, Errol Childress (Glenn Fleshler), the man with the burn scars on his jaw. Errol’s house is a mess, packed with old papers, VHS tapes and creepy, half broken dolls. Dirty laundry, old clothes and sheets are strewn about the house. Errol’s garage is equally terrifying. He stands, shirtless, in front of a presumably dead body attracting flies. Errol’s back is covered in scars, and the walls are covered in red writing. He talks to the corpse for a moment, and then leaves, saying “Bye, Daddy,” and goes inside the main house to do a freakishly good Cary Grant impression and hook up with his disabled girlfriend (who is most likely a distant relative of »

The Definitive Original Screenplays: 30-21

2 March 2014 9:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Now it’s gettin’ good, right? This section of the list begins to get into the portion where “you’ve heard it before.” A number of the films below have been universally acclaimed for one reason or another, but the focus here is on the writing. Some are innovative, some are unexpected, and some completed changed the way films were written, creating a new style or sub-genre. After all, isn’t that what makes for good writing?

30. Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Written by Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary

I don’t wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you’re standing in my way, one way or the other, you’re gettin’ outta my way.

Before he was one of the more recognizable directors in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino was a screenwriter just trying to make enough money to get the films he wanted to make off the ground. »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Glenn Close and More Stars Who Have Never Won an Oscar

26 February 2014 4:25 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is it really "an honor just to be nominated"? Seems like no matter how sincerely they say it, all actors want to win that most coveted of acting honors, the Academy Award. Oscar gold. Technically, it's gold-plated britannia metal. That's the stuff dreams are made of! Since the Motion Picture Academy's first Oscars ceremony in 1929, many worthy actors have received statuettes for outstanding lead and supporting performances. Yet Oscar has eluded some of Hollywood's greatest icons, including James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen, Cary Grant and Peter O'Toole. However, Grant and O'Toole received honorary Oscars late in life for their career achievements. Sadly, those legends have »
