Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Hanks and Ryan Take Forever to Realize That Men are from Seattle and Women from Baltimore

24 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sleepless in Seattle': Meg Ryan 'Sleepless in Seattle' review: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in an affair to forget In Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors: Red, the last installment of his "Three Colors" trilogy, the word "magic" is never bandied about. No need to. Magic is just about everywhere in that lyrical tale about love and fate. On the other hand, the word "magic" seems to crop up every other minute in writer-director Nora Ephron's Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron and fellow Oscar-nominated screenwriters Jeff Arch and David S. Ward (plus an uncredited Delia Ephron) were apparently trying to create screen magic through the power of suggestion. If you repeat it often enough... Following in the footsteps of Claude Lelouch's 1974 hit And Now My Love, with added touches borrowed from Leo McCarey's 1957 romance classic An Affair to Remember (itself a remake of McCarey's own 1939 Love Affair), Nora Ephron »

John Compton, Actor in 'Mildred Pierce' and 'The D.A.’s Man,' Dies at 91

18 May 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

John Compton, who appeared in the classic 1945 melodrama Mildred Pierce and then starred in a Jack Webb-produced TV crime series, The D.A.’s Man, has died. He was 91.

DeMille. He appeared opposite Jane

Cannes Film Review: ‘Irrational Man’

15 May 2015 4:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After Alfred Hitchcock and his Gallic disciple, Claude Chabrol, has any filmmaker devoted more screen time to contemplating the mechanics of the “perfect” murder than Woody Allen? Allen’s latest, “Irrational Man,” adds to a tally that also includes “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “Match Point” and the little-seen “Cassandra’s Dream” —  only, unlike those films’ homicidal protagonists, the philosophical anti-hero of Allen’s 45th feature kills not for love or money, but rather for a kind of existential clarity. That conceit puts a fresh spin on a familiar premise and marks “Irrational Man” as one of the Woodman’s more offbeat and ambitiously weird projects since the fragmented “Deconstructing Harry” in 1997, though less conventionally entertaining than recent home runs like “Blue Jasmine” and “Midnight in Paris.” Arthouse traffic should be decent but modest for the July 17 Sony Classics release.

In a role that suits his laconic, rum-soaked rhythms nearly as well »

Only Angels Have Wings, film review: Spectacular aerial sequences and fatalistic machismo

14 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Who said only the British had stiff upper lips? One of the pleasures of Howard Hawks' 1939 classic, re-released in a 4K restoration, is the utterly phlegmatic way the pilots of Barranca Airways in a remote corner of Latin America react to the death of colleagues. All that matters is getting the mail out on time. Inwardly, they may be be in turmoil but none of them, least of all the boss, Geoff Carter (Cary Grant), shows any emotion. »

Criterion Collection: Make Way For Tomorrow | Blu-Ray Review

12 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

One can’t ignore a certain irony that Leo McCarey, director of one of the most irrefutably sorrowful motion pictures with 1937’s Make Way For Tomorrow, was actually well renowned for his comedic ventures, like that same year’s The Awful Truth or the most beloved of the Marx Brothers films with Duck Soup (1933). In the decades since its release, the film has recently come to be recognized for its influence on several filmmakers, including Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story (1953) and Ira SachsLove is Strange (2014). Filmed during the Great Depression, yet without specific references to the significant economic downturn, the film has a timeless resonance that feels particularly fitting for our contemporary existence.

Though not cemented in Western culture, there’s a particular tendency for this depiction to transpire within the landscape of white, capitalistic peoples and their insistence on stuffing their elders into nursing home facilities. The film »

Acteurism: Joel McCrea in "He Married His Wife"

6 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

With such a definitive and spoiler-happy title as “He Married His Wife” (even with pronouns lending a level of mystery), plot quickly becomes unimportant. Even the contemporary micro-genre this 1940 film fills, the comedy of remarriage, immediately announces T.H. Randall’s (Joel McCrea) eventual reunion with estranged wife Valerie (Nancy Kelly). In order for the couple to come together, both actors must switch between clown and straight-man acts at screwball pace using the supporting cast as colorful props.This outline worked well for Howard Hawks’s Bringing Up Baby (1938) two years earlier, but that had the remarkable advantage of both Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn, both known for versatility in anything their studio would throw at them. Conversely, 20th Century Fox put director Roy Del Ruth to the task of He Married His Wife as a workman director capable of identifying the strengths of a trending narrative style for economic opportunity. »

Cary Grant & Audrey Hepburn in Charade Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

5 May 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“She batted them pretty little eyes at you, and you fell for it like an egg from a tall chicken!”

Charade plays at The Hi-Pointe Theater ( 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117) Saturday, May 9th at 10:30am as part of their Classic Film Series

It’s been said that Charade (1963) is the best Alfred Hitchcock movie not directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Despite a notable body count and a few suspenseful moments, Charade is really a romantic comedy. Despite its intricate plot of double crosses, fake identities and a mad search for some missing loot in a picture-postcard Paris, it is designed to amuse. It is Hitchcock-lite; as directed by Stanley Donen, a man best known for directing films like Singin’ In The Rain, the film also is constructed like a musical, stringing together a few remarkable set pieces with a silly plot and clever banter. But most of all, Charade »

Brad Pitt 'Glory Days' costar Nicholas Kallsen Brad Pitt 'Glory Days' costar Nicholas Kallsen dead at 48 Nicholas Kallsen, who was featured opposite Brad Pitt in the short-lived television series Glory Days, has died at age 48 in Thailand according to online reports. Their source is one of Rupert Murdoch's rags, citing a Facebook posting by one of the actor's friends. The cause of death was purportedly – no specific source was provided – a drug overdose.* Aired on Fox in July 1990, Glory Days told the story of four high-school friends whose paths take different directions after graduation. Besides Nicholas Kallsen and Brad Pitt, the show also featured Spike Alexander and Evan Mirand. Glory Days lasted a mere six episodes – two of which directed by former Happy Days actor Anson Williams – before its cancellation.

Michiel Huisman Talks Age Of Adaline, Game Of Thrones, and More

24 April 2015 8:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

The Simpsons' top 30 movie references

23 April 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Simpsons has pastiched hundreds of movies in its time. From Hitchcock to Kubrick to Disney, we select our top 30 favourites...

The Simpsons has a long history of peppering its stories with pop culture references, and some of the show’s finest gags stem from the world of cinema. These have ranged from the briefest of quotes, to full on shot-for-shot parodies and extended episode-long homages.

Most striking in trying to put this list together was the sheer volume of movie references there are to choose from. In pretty much any given episode of The Simpsons, there are at least a couple, with nods to James Bond, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the work of Alfred Hitchcock proving three of the most regular candidates. The tributes to numerous great horror movies in the show’s Treehouse Of Horror episodes could have been used to fill this list all on their own. »

Alan Rickman on why he nearly turned Die Hard down

19 April 2015 10:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"I'm not doing an action movie", said Alan Rickman of Die Hard. But here's why he did...

Alan Rickman's second film as director, A Little Chaos, is currently playing in UK cinemas. Last week, he was on the promotional trail for the movie, and as part and parcel of that, he was interviewed as part of a BAFTA event dedicated to his film work. As you might expect, Die Hard was mentioned, and Rickman revealed that he very nearly turned the movie down.

"I didn't know anything about L.A.. I didn't know anything about the film business... I'd never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap", he said. Yet when he first read the screenplay, his reaction was "what the hell is this? I'm not doing an action movie".

Yet the script won him over for a number of reasons in the end, with its wit one factor. »

Alfred Hitchcock's Top 25 Films, Ranked

7 April 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Debates about Alfred Hitchcock have been raging for decades. Was he a cruel genius who treated his actors like cattle, torturing his icy blondes' performances out of them? (Some, like established movie star Grace Kelly, handled him better than others.) Some critics prefer the more whimsical British Hitchcock, tongue tucked in cheek, although his first breakout hit "The Lodger" (1927) was a sign of things to come. Clearly, Hitchcock learned from early Hollywood mentor David O. Selznick, who taught him a great deal, points out David Thomson in "The New Biographical Dictionary of Film." Over 50 years, the filmmaker always had visual flair and a distinct style, and knew how to implicate audiences in his dark, often opaque characters. Cary Grant, especially, excelled at playing charismatic men whose motives and true nature were open to interpretation, from "Suspicion" to "Notorious." Hitchcock was a true artist in the sense that he often »

The Birds Screens at Schlafly Thursday – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

The Birds screens at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143)  Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm. It is a benefit for Helping Kids Together (more details about this event can be found Here)

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list from March of 2012. Alfred Hitchcock directed 54 feature films between 1925 and 1976, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. Perhaps ole’ ” Hitch ” wanted to give those young up-and-coming »

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.

68th Festival de Cannes Poster Features Ingrid Bergman

23 March 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

© Fdc / Lagency / Taste (Paris) / Ingrid Bergman © David Seymour / Estate of David Seymour – Magnum Photos

Hollywood star Ingrid Bergman is featured on the official poster of the 68th Festival de Cannes

Bergman was a modern icon, an emancipated woman, an intrepid actress, and a figurehead for the new realism. She changed roles and adoptive countries as the mood took her, but never lost sight of her quintessential grace and simplicity.

This year’s poster captures the actress, who worked with Alfred Hitchcock, Roberto Rossellini and Ingmar Bergman, and starred opposite Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart and Gregory Peck, in all her beauty, her face lit up by a calm serenity that seems to herald a promising future.

Liberty, audacity, modernity – values also shared by the Festival, year after year, through the artists and films it showcases. Ingrid Bergman was President of the Jury in 1973.
