'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

17 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty It girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. »

Movie Review – Some Like It Hot (1959)

24 July 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some Like It Hot, 1959.

Directed by Billy Wilder.

Starring Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and George Raft.

Synopsis:

After witnessing a murder, two musicians flee Chicago to join an all-female band on their way to Florida…

Some Like It Hot is not known for its mob ties. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, carrying their awkwardly-shaped bass-case and sax-box, dressed in drag, is the memorable image. It would be easy to watch the opening first ten minutes and not even realise what the film is as we see gangsters with tommy-guns, shoot through a hearse revealing the liquor inside. Remember the funeral parlour that doubles as a speakeasy with the appropriate knock? Or the dancing girls and jazz music that echoes out onto the street while drinkers order their “coffee”? Oh, and then the camera subtly moves to introduce Gerald (Lemmon) and Joe (Curtis). They look bored playing their up-beat music. »

James Garner, Hollywood Icon, Dead At Age 86

Artist Pete Emslie's tribute to Garner. (Courtesy of The Cartoon Cave),

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Hollywood lost another member of its rapidly diminishing roster of stars who can truly be called legends. James Garner has passed away from natural causes following years of battling severe health issues that kept him out of the public eye. He was 86 years old. Like many actors of his generation, he drifted into the profession as an unlikely candidate for stardom. Garner served in the Korean War and was awarded two Purple Hearts, a fact he was characteristically humble about discussing. He landed some parts in "A" list feature films in the late 1950s before starring as Bret Maverick in the smash hit TV series "Maverick". His popularity exploded in the 1960s when he became part of a select number of TV stars to successfully transfer their popularity to the big screen. Garner made a major »

James Garner of ‘Maverick,’ ‘Rockford Files’ Dies at 86

20 July 2014 12:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amiable actor James Garner, whose moderately successful film career was eclipsed by two extraordinarily popular television series, “Maverick” and “The Rockford Files,” has died, according to reports. He was 86.

Like many popular leading men of Hollywood’s heyday, Garner boasted all-American good looks and a winning personality that carried him through comedy and drama alike. He was one of the first of TV’s leading men to cross over into films in the ’60s with such popular movies as “The Thrill of It All” and “The Americanization of Emily.” But he had his greatest impact in television, first on “Maverick” in the ’50s and then in the ’70s on “The Rockford Files,” for which he won an Emmy in 1977. He later appeared in several quality telepics including “Promise,” “My Name Is Bill W.” and “Barbarians at the Gate,” as well as the occasional strong feature such as “Victor/Victoria” and “Murphy’s Romance, »

Amiable film and television actor James Garner, who starred in popular television series “Maverick” and “The Rockford Files,” died Saturday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was 86.

Like many popular leading men of Hollywood’s heyday, Garner boasted all-American good looks and a winning personality that carried him through comedy and drama alike. Garner won two Emmys and racked up a total of 15 nominations. He had his greatest impact in television, first on “Maverick” in the ’50s and then in the ’70s on “The Rockford Files,” for which he won an Emmy in 1977. He later appeared in several quality telepics including “Promise,” “My Name Is Bill W.” and “Barbarians at the Gate,” as well as the occasional strong feature such as “Victor/Victoria” and “Murphy’s Romance,” for which he captured his sole Oscar nomination for lead actor.

Re-Viewed: Some Like It Hot is about sex before America lost innocence

18 July 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Regularly voted one of the best comedies of all time, Some Like It Hot proves that men dressed up as women is a gag that never gets old, but apart from what Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon are hiding up their skirts, there's more to this 1959 classic than meets the eye.

Essentially, it's a film about sex, made just before America lost its innocence, fuelled by frustration and littered with double-entendres, all delivered with elegance, taste and impeccable timing by writer/director Billy Wilder.

Curtis and Lemmon in high heels offer a rib-tickling demonstration of everything opposite to that, at least in the beginning when they're forced on the run after witnessing the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, 1929, and its bloody fall-out.

They play their way into a touring all-girl band where Marilyn is up front and showing a lot of it, too, in plunging necklines. She makes love »

Lip Service: The Top 10 Movie Catchphrases

11 July 2014 5:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The obligatory movie catchphrase…memorable golden dialogue for the cinematic soul. What film fan does not enjoy reciting and repeating their favorite movie quotes? After all, there are countless catchphrases in films–some are famous, some are familiar, some are obscure. Still, paraphrasing movie quips has become an art onto itself?

So what are your all-time movie catchphrases? Perhaps it is Jimmy Cagney’s “You dirt rat…you killed my brother?”. Maybe it is Cary Grant’s “Judy, Judy, Judy”? Or how about Lauren Bacall’s “You know how to whistle, don’t you? Just blow…” Whatever movie catchphrases catches your fancy is fine so long as it brings up memories of the film or film characters tat have made a big impression on your cinema experiences.

“Haht” of Gold: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actors from Massachusetts

11 July 2014 1:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.

As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

Double Take: Hollywood Hotties With Older Movie Star Doppelgangers

10 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Every generation thinks that their movie stars are the hottest, the sexiest, the most lust-worthy (ask your mom about Dustin Hoffman in 1968 and prepare to be shocked). But there’s nothing new in Hollywood — certainly not when it comes to its pin-ups. What was once considered attractive always come back full circle.

Take Rob Lowe, for example. He was arguably the most beautiful young actor in 1984. Twenty years later, moviedom is overrun with Lowe-lookalikes (Ian Somerholder and Zac Efron, to name a few). You think Jon Hamm‘s slicked-back black hair and dapper rogue swag is delicious? So did women in the 1940′s, when they were fantasizing about Cary Grant. Everything old is new again, kids.

Here, we compare some of today’s sexiest male celebs with their older movie star lookalikes. Some might surprise you!

10 Great Fireworks Scenes from Movies

4 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! It's not hard to imagine that my favorite part about this holiday is the fireworks! I love lighting them up and watching them go off. I even attempted to make my own at one point… I'll never do that again. As a tribute to this patriotic American holiday celebrating our independence, I've put together a top 10 list of great fireworks scenes from the movies. 

The Sandlot

This is by far one of the most American 4th of July scenes ever put on film. You've got a group of kids playing baseball in the 1950s on the 4th of July. 

An American Tail

Behold, the Giant Mouse of Minsk! This scene is both thrilling and incredibly scary. It's such a cool fireworks scene though.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaking genius, and this scene features fireworks going on in the background as Cary Grant »

‘Afflicted’ and ‘Operation Petticoat’ Are the Best New Blu-ray/DVD Releases of the Week

1 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Operation Petticoat The USS Sea Tiger has seen better days as a Navy sub during World War II, but it hasn’t seen any action. Commander Sherman (Cary Grant) would like the chance to rectify that before the boat is sent to a watery grave, and with the help of a shifty junior officer (Tony Curtis) he sets out to give the Sea Tiger one last shot at glory. Who knew it would come with an assist from five Army nurses in need of a lift? This 1959 comedy classic has been on my list of shame for far too long so it was great to not only finally see it but also to discover just how fantastic it truly is. Grant is as charming as ever here playing a wonderful combination of suave and frazzled »

Antonin Baudry and Bertrand Tavernier in conversation on Weapons of Mass Diplomacy and The French Minister (Quai d’Orsay)

Antonin Baudry with Bertrand Tavernier on The French Minister (Quai d’Orsay): "I fell in love immediately with Antonin's book, because it was dealing with politics in, for me, the best way possible." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

I met up in New York with Bertrand Tavernier and Antonin Baudry, who co-wrote the screenplay for The French Minister (Quai d’Orsay), based on Baudry's (aka Abel Lanzac) autobiographic graphic novel about his adventures as a speech writer in the French Ministry. The film stars Thierry Lhermitte, Raphaël Personnaz and Niels Arestrup who at times seem to channel the working methods of Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in His Girl Friday or the serious madness surrounding Peter Sellers in The Party. Howard Hawks, Billy Wilder, Blake Edwards, Jacques Becker, Stanley Kubrick and John Ford pop up in precise reference throughout the conversation.

Robert De Niro Steps Out, for His Festival, His Father and the Friars Club's Top Award

17 June 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

We all know that Robert De Niro is a far better screen actor than he is public figure. Journalists dread interviews with the famously monosyllabic star. But this year De Niro is suddenly everywhere: at Tribeca, his New York film festival, and hawking the Tribeca-produced Sundance documentary about his artist father, "Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro, Sr.," which debuted on June 9 on HBO.  And now, The Friars Club in New York, which is best known for its celebrity roasts, is giving the screen icon a rare honor. Once a year, the private club, whose members mostly come from the worlds of film and entertainment, gather to playfully cut down one of their own. This year, though, the club is doing something its has done only four times before: giving out the Entertainment Icon Award, its highest honor. De Niro joins the small and somewhat unexpected club of past honorees: Cary Grant, »

Captain Scarlet revisited: Francis Matthews' iconic hero 47 years later

17 June 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Francis Matthews - a prolific and respected actor, star of stage and screen - had sadly died, aged 86.

As Captain Scarlet - the hero of Gerry Anderson's '60s 'Supermarionation' series - Matthews was one of the iconic voices of this writer's childhood.

To mark his passing, the Week in Geek revisits the first episode of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons - first broadcast on UK television almost 50 years ago.

"The finger is on the trigger - about to unleash a force with terrible powers, beyond the comprehension of man. This force we shall know as… The Mysterons."

It's not your average science fiction children's series that opens with a moody and atmospheric crawl into a dark and dirty alley, where a lone gunman sprays bullets before being felled by return fire.

Taormina Film Festival: Gathering Place of Legends, Stars and Industry Players

13 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As part of the Roman Empire, Taormina was renowned for its fine wine and high-quality marble. Today the picturesque Sicilian town, with its sweeping view over the Strait of Messina, is best known for the film festival that bears its name — Italy’s oldest — that over the years has attracted such cinema legends as Marcello Mastroianni, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and John Huston.

This month the Taormina Film Festival celebrates its 60th anni by honoring the work of women in the movies, and female movie stars will play a prominent role in the festivities. The fest’s subtitle for 2014 is “60 years of women and their impact.”

“Women have contributed a lot to the movie business, and sometimes they are not as appreciated as men, and festivals forget to celebrate them,” says Tiziana Rocca, Taormina fest’s general manager.

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon – Just tell the damn stories

13 June 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mike Meyers could not have picked a better subject for his directorial debut. The quality of the documentary Supermensch is barely even one worth taking into consideration when you sit a camera in front of a guy who managed Jimmy Hendrix, Alice Cooper, Groucho Marx, Teddy Pendergrass, Emeril Lagasse and the list just doesn’t end. Shep Gordon, without question, is a man with a lot of stories. He was the man behind the curtain to which no one paid attention. He was the guy bringing the chicken to Alice Cooper concerts. He was the man who created the genre of celebrity chef.

Meyers loves Shep Gordon. And Meyers’ documentary couldn’t be less of a love parade. That’s really it’s only drawback. There’s somewhat of a lack of conflict in Gordon’s life. This is a man who did everything he wanted to do, and his stories are worth your time. »
