Our Holiday Favorites 2014: 'The Holiday' Cheers Up Elizabeth

27 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Welcome back to Slackerwood's annual Holiday Favorites series. Over the next month or so, we'll talk about our favorite movies to watch in the winter holiday season, and ask various friends in the film community to share their favorites with us too. 

When actor Eli Wallach died earlier this year, I immediately thought of his work in Nancy Meyers' The Holiday. Certainly he appeared in more notable pictures, but The Holiday is near and dear to my heart (as is How to Steal a Million, in which he also appears). A romantic comedy only vaguely related to end-of-the-year festivities, the "Holiday" here represents the short breaks Brit Iris (Kate Winslet) and American Amanda (Cameron Diaz) take from their regular schedules as they trade homes for a couple weeks.

Wallach plays an endearing remnant from Classic Hollywood, the kind of old codger who will namedrop Cary Grant at the same »

Golden Globes: Comedy/Musical Category Gives Deserving Pics Spotlight

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

Ever since the days of ancient Greece, drama has been considered high art and comedy the lower art form. But it is still art, dammit.

That’s one reason to be thankful for the Golden Globes. They have a comedy/musical category, which ensures that “lightweight” entertainment is a part of the year’s awards conversation. As it always should be.

The category has become Hollywood shorthand. When you ask a studio executive about awards prospects for an upcoming film, the answer “Golden Globes maybe” is a way of saying “comedy/musical.” And that in itself translates to: “It might be too enjoyable for ‘serious’ awards consideration.”

However, the potential Golden Globe nominees are reminders that an audience can have fun with very serious topics. Look at such potential nominees as “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Into the Woods,” “Annie,” “Begin Again,” “Pride,” “Inherent Vice,” “Top Five,” “Guardians of the Galaxy, »

Read Marilyn Monroe's Very Racy Love Letter from Arthur Miller

20 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sexting wouldn't be invented for another half-century. But that didn't stop Arthur Miller from expressing some rather explicit long-distance passion for Marilyn Monroe. In the months before the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Death of a Salesman wed the screen siren, then the most famous star in the world, he was head over heels in love with her - and then some. In a racy, never-before-seen letter he mailed to her on April 30, 1956, he writes that when they are back together again and she awakens next to him, "I will kiss you and hold you close to me and sensational things will then happen. »

Icon, Italian Style! AFI's Sophia Loren Tribute

15 November 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

On Wednesday night, Hollywood took a step back in time and it was a beautiful thing. Italy’s most glamorous export, the lovely Sophia Loren, made a rare visit to screen two of her films to an adoring crowd at the Dolby Theater. The movie legend was greeted with a standing ovation when she walked out in a shimmering gown, escorted by director Rob Marshall who was clearly in awe of the star he cast in Nine, her last Hollywood film. Settling into two plush seats separated by a mountain of roses, Marshall introduced her as “A woman with a heart as big as all of Italy.” Loren opened up about her life, career and leading men in a 45 minute Q&A, punctuated by frequent laughter and some poignant moments when she remembered how movies offered an escape from the misery of post-wwii Italy.

AFI Fest Honors Sophia Loren, Actress, Fashion Icon, Mistress of Throwing Shade

14 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 Anne Marie from the AFI Fest on an International Legend...

At age 80, Sophia Loren is still magnetic. When the Academy Award-winning actress appeared onstage at the Dolby Theatre on Wednesday night for an AFI Fest tribute to her career, she received a two-minute long standing ovation. The audience whooped and yelled "Bellisima" before Loren, elegant in a black gown studded with crystals, could do more than walk onstage and smile. Once the furor died down, Rob Marshall, her director for Nine, interviewed Sophia Loren about her career, co-stars, and controversies.

“When I saw the movies, I forgot the war, forgot hunger. It was possible to believe there was another life than the one I was in.”

Despite her glamorous image, Loren's description of her early life growing up poor in the slums of Italy was bleak. When she met her husband, producer Carlo Ponti (who passed away in 2007), he took »

Sophia Loren Spills the Beans on Co-Stars, Her Career and Fellini at AFI Fest

12 November 2014 10:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sophia Loren had the AFI Fest audience laughing, applauding and cheering as Rob Marshall led her through her decades-long career during a retrospective at the Dolby Theatre on Wednesday.

Marshall called Loren “a woman with a heart as big as all Italy.”

Explaining her start in films, Loren said as a kid she loved going to the movies to escape the misery of her life. “When I saw the movies, I forgot the war, forgot hunger. It was possible to believe there was another life than the one I was in.” Years later, she would dig into those memories when she acted in films including “Two Women.”

While she worked with many of the famous Italian directors of her time, she never teamed with Fellini. “I was not his kind of actress.”

She learned English when her husband, Carlo Ponti, called her from Hollywood to tell her “you have to learn English, »

To Catch A Thief Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

12 November 2014 5:48 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Do you want a leg or a breast?”

To Catch A Thief Screens Saturday November 15th at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo) at 10:30am. This is a fundraiser for the Philanthropic Educational Organization (“P.E.O.”) which focuses its efforts on raising money for women’s education and supports an all-female college in Nevada, Missouri called Cottey College. 

You can read more about the organization at their website:  http://peointernational.org/

admission is $10.00

Squeezed in the middle of Hitchcock’s filmography, To Catch A Thief, is many times forgotten since it came out the year after Rear Window. Hitchcock also had greater success with his later films, Psycho, The Birds, North By Northwest, and Vertigo so this film is easily discarded when we compare it to his other works which is a shame because To Catch A Thief has many great things going for »

Comic Book Review – The Fade Out #3

12 November 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zeb Larson reviews The Fade Out #3…

Brubaker & Phillips’ new crime noir masterpiece is just getting started! Remember, every month The Fade Out has exclusive back pages articles that are only available in the single issues.

In the middle of the mystery, Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips introduce a few new characters and plot lines. Charlie only shows up in this issue for a grand total of four panels, so the mystery of Valeria Sommer’s death is as yet on the backburner. So what’s the intention here? To build an epic series, one with a number of plot threads and an appropriately large backstory. We’re likely not going to get any closure on Valeria’s murder for a long time, so we’re better off just kicking back and letting this story unfold.

This issue introduces several new characters, or people we’ve only seen bits and pieces of. »

Marilyn Monroe's Lost Love Letters to Be Auctioned

It's no secret Joe Dimaggio loved Marilyn Monroe. The baseball great cried at her funeral and for 20 years had flowers placed at her crypt several times a week. The public displays were unusual for the famously stoic and private Dimaggio. Now, his heartbreak over the breakup of their marriage will get a rare public airing when "Marilyn Monroe's Lost Archives" goes up for bid at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills next month.

Trailers From Hell Goes Up 'Red River' with John Wayne and Monty Clift

10 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Howard Hawks’ first western was a huge hit and marked what John Wayne had feared might turn out to be his swan song, at the age of 41. He later said John Ford “never respected me as an actor until I made 'Red River.'” During the shoot Wayne came to greatly appreciate the talents of debuting co-star Montgomery Clift after initial skepticism. Despite its popularity Clift disliked his own performance. John Ireland’s part was reduced in editing due to his interest in co-star and Hawks protege Joanne Dru, who he later married. Oddly, Hawks had sought Cary Grant (!) for the same role. Final film appearance of veteran western star Harry Carey. »

The Men Who Would Be Hughes (Plus Hepburn and the end of Rko)

6 November 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Howard Hughes movies (photo: Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes in 'The Aviator') Turner Classic Movies will be showing the Howard Hughes-produced, John Farrow-directed, Baja California-set gangster drama His Kind of Woman, starring Robert Mitchum, Hughes discovery Jane Russell, and Vincent Price, at 3 a.m. Pt / 6 a.m. Et on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Hughes produced a couple of dozen movies. (More on that below.) But what about "Howard Hughes movies"? Or rather, movies — whether big-screen or made-for-television efforts — featuring the visionary, eccentric, hypochondriac, compulsive-obsessive, all-American billionaire as a character? Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a dashing if somewhat unbalanced Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 Best Picture Academy Award-nominated The Aviator, other actors who have played Howard Hughes on film include the following: Tommy Lee Jones in William A. Graham's television movie The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977), with Lee Purcell as silent film star Billie Dove, Tovah Feldshuh as Katharine Hepburn, »

AFI Fest Honoree Sophia Loren Talks Life and Loves

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

When Sophia Loren is thrown a tribute like Nov. 12’s scheduled gala at AFI Fest, attendees can get an intoxicating glimpse of classic-era Euro cinema glamour, of which Loren remains one of the last living representatives. (At this year’s Cannes fest, the octogenarian knocked ’em dead in timeless style.)

Film fans recall a half-century’s worth of skillful performances in every genre. Looking both forward and back, AFI will screen a restored print of Oscar-nominated “Marriage Italian Style,” as well as a new version of Jean Cocteau’s “Human Voice,” helmed by son Edoardo Ponti.

As for the lady herself, after competitive and honorary Oscars, a record 10 David Di Donatello awards, five Golden Globes and threescore trophies and tributes, you’d think it would all be old hat by now. “Never enough. Never enough,” she burbles. “I feel very important when they give me an award. I like it, »

Hatchet for a Honeymoon: Marriage and the Screen

1 November 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last month David Fincher’s Gone Girl made a smash at the box office. As if plugged directly into the Zeitgeist, it seemed as if everyone had a take on the film’s views on gender, the media and marriage. Gone Girl was a sensation that turned the camera inward, revealing our discomfort with the institution of marriage. While the butt of many jokes, marriage is perceived as an important pillar in our understanding of families, social values and personal happiness. Yet, it remains behind closed doors. We understand marriage within the realms of our own experience, our parents, our friends and our own marriages. Yet, we are only ever truly familiar with our own intimate relationships and even that is under debate. If anything, Gone Girl shows that within marriage there are two sides to every story. Marriage is veiled with a certain air of mystery and the question »

The 10 Best Journalism Movies

30 October 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The movie journalist is always caught up in scandal, gossip and invasions of privacy. Though plenty of movies have been made about authors, poets, and other writers, the physical act of writing and editing rarely makes it into Hollywood journalism. Thankfully, the more sensational aspects of media have made for scathing satire and commentary, loathsome anti-heroes, and pulpy, investigative reporting that the camera loves.

This week’s Nightcrawler features Jake Gyllenhaal as a crime journalist in L.A., but he’s more Travis Bickle than Anderson Cooper. Even other films released this year have fit the template of being more about something else than actually about journalism, from a theater critic in Birdman trying to destroy Riggan Thompson’s career to Jeremy Renner in Kill the Messenger about how noble voices get squashed.

The best movies about journalism are more than the newsroom politics, so in honor of Nightcrawler’s release, »

Inside the Neighborhood Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Call Home

This story first appeared in the Nov. 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. If the best place to see the stars in Los Angeles is Griffith Observatory, a close runner-up would be the neighborhood surrounding it. Largely developed in the 1920s and '30s, the Griffith Park/Los Feliz tract has been popular with the entertainment crowd since the silent film era, counting Gary Cooper, Carole Lombard, Cary Grant and Cecil B. DeMille among its former residents and Natalie Portman, David Fincher, Kristen Stewart, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Warner Bros. president of worldwide marketing and international distribution Sue

The 1937 Movie More Cynical About Marriage Than ‘Gone Girl’

20 October 2014 6:03 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Gone Girl is a cynical movie. No doubt. It features two sociopaths working out their deeply troubled marital issues in the public eye with just the right amount of bloodshed. Yet in more than a few ways, it could be an unofficial remake of The Awful Truth, Leo McCarey’s 1937 screwball comedy where two assholes realize that they want to stay married. The movie opens with Jerry Warriner (Cary Grant, naturally) lying to his wife about a trip to Florida (complete with sunlamp sessions at the gym and fake letters). When his wife Lucy (Irene Dunne) returns home later than expected, and with her debonair singing instructor in tow, Jerry can’t believe her story of a broken down vehicle. He’s furious. She finds out he was lying about visiting the Sunshine State, and mutual divorce proceedings commence. They both want to keep the dog. The rest of the film involves Lucy’s engagement to the »

The Best Of Me Review

18 October 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As with any genre, melodrama has its own artistry. Creating an emotional response in the viewer enough to cause tears, or at least for a strong connection to the main characters, is an art in itself. Done properly, melodrama can be as exhilarating as an action film, and as intense as a horror movie. Done poorly, it can make you feel at best cheated, and at worst manipulated and ashamed of wasting two hours on such a pedantic series of misadventures.

With that in mind, I must consider how to review the latest adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel: The Best of Me. I must choose my words carefully, for you, the reader, shall make the heartfelt decision whether to spend your money on a tale of love and redemption in the Louisiana Bayou. So allow me to put this as gently as I know how: The Best of Me is bad. »
