Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window – Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

10 July 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A murderer would never parade his crime in front of an open window”.

Rear Window plays this weekend (July 15th and 16th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

As with so many of Alfred’s Hitchcock’s films, Rear Window (1954) is a wonderful example of how to take an almost absurdly simple idea and spin out the maximum tension, character, humor and drama from it. It should be boring (a movie set in one room with a guy who can’t move) and ludicrous (a killer who murders his wife and chops her up in front of his neighbors) but it’s quite the opposite – riveting and eerily plausible. If ever there was a film about voyeurism and its relationship to cinema, this is it; Hitchcock tells engrossing little silent movies of the tenants (the newlyweds, the sculptress, Miss Torso, »

Top 10 Richest Monarchs on the Planet

18 May 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The concept of a monarchy may have all but lost its meaning in the United States, but in the rest of the world, the top earners of some countries come from this class.

Monarchies are a form of government which differs from a democracy, and have been around for more than twice as long. Until the 19th century, in these systems, an individual or family ruled in entirety for life.

Today Monarchs are seen as figureheads limited in political power, but greatly influential in shaping nations.

2016 has some of the world’s top earning monarchs. Although there are over 4 dozen sovereign nations in the world, the following are the cream of the crop when it comes to wealth.

All told, the world is made up of 44 monarchs. Although this list is only comprised of the top ten, there remain another 34 yet to be explored. As time progresses, it is conceivable »

Papa: Hemingway In Cuba – Review

29 April 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The fact-inspired film Papa: Hemingway In Cuba is a prime example of why a good director matters. As some sage once said, “If it was easy, everyone would do it.”

The film is first American film shot in Cuba since Castro’s 1959 revolution, and there is so degree of thrill in seeing Hemingway’s home and the actual locations he frequented. In fact, the story takes place in 1959, with true-story basis loaded with dramatic potential. Sadly, producer-turned -director Bob Yari fails to put to good use to those elements, along with a strong cast. Only the most determined Hemingway devotees will get much out of Yari’s dull, pedestrian film.

Giovanni Ribisi plays young newspaperman Ed Myers (a stand-in for the real journalist Denne Bart Petitclerc, on whose memoir of his friendship with Hemingway the story is based). Ed writes a fan letter of sorts to his idol Hemingway, whom »

The Little Black Dress – a simple, short cocktail dress—is a sartorial staple for most contemporary women.

You’ll also see fascinating artifacts—from hair jewelry to tear catchers—that were once a regular part of the mourning process.

William Holden: The Golden Boy of Vintage Hollywood

17 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This Sunday marks the birthday of William Holden, who was born April 17, 1918. The actor ranked No. 25 on AFI’s list of all-time great leading men. Since he had classic good looks, an expressive voice, and was an excellent actor who starred in some of Hollywood’s most memorable movies, why wasn’t he even higher on the list? Maybe because Holden had a special talent for always making his co-stars look so good.

He starred in many hit films opposite actors who had flashier roles: Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Boulevard,” Judy Holliday in “Born Yesterday,” Audrey Hepburn in “Sabrina,” Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly in “The Country Girl,” Alec Guinness in “Bridge on the River Kwai,” and Faye Dunaway and Peter Finch in “Network.” Significantly, many of these actors won Oscars for their work. They gave great, showy performances, but Holden was the anchor of the films. It’s hard »

Why Princess Grace's Spectacular Wedding Tiara Wasn't Really a Tiara

8 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As one of the biggest Hollywood stars of her era, Princess Grace - before her wedding, she was known around the world as Rear Window star Grace Kelly - wasn't a typical royal bride. And she didn't accessorize like one either. Instead of a tiara, Princess Grace instead wore a beaded Juliet cap with an attached veil for her spectacular wedding to Monaco's Prince Rainier on April 18, 1956. Atop the cap was a layer of lace covered in tiny pearls along with flowers. While it wasn't actually a diamond-covered tiara, the piece was crown-like in appearance, with the pearls and flowers »

Review: Sturdy, Grounded, But Not Quite Satisfying 'Standing Tall' Starring Catherine Deneuve

1 April 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Last year, the Cannes Film Festival got off to the worst possible start. The opening night slot has always had ups and downs (read our feature on the best and worst of them here), and for every "Moonrise Kingdom" or "Up," there was a "Da Vinci Code" or "Blindness," but "Grace Of Monaco" was something else: a rotten, ill-conceived biopic of Grace Kelly that hasn't just skipped U.S theaters entirely, it's actually premiering on Lifetime. Festival head Thierry Fremaux clearly had some making up to do with this year's opening night film, and he's eschewed big Hollywood stars for a more modest, homegrown effort in Emmanuelle Bercot's "Standing Tall," which also marks the first time since Diane Kurys' "A Man In Love" in 1987 that a film from a female director has kicked off Cannes. The result is a sturdy, »

The Bronze – The Review

17 March 2016 4:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Bronze is a painfully funny portrait of a strikingly deranged and clueless young woman. Hope Annabelle Gregory (Melissa Rauch) is a celebrity in her home town of Amherst Ohio. She won the bronze in gymnastics at the Rome Olympics several years earlier, even after suffering a career-ending foot injury. Hope lives at home with her kind mailman dad Stan (Gary Cole), and avoids getting a day job at all costs. Her entitled life mostly consists of eating free meals at Sbarro while being rude to everyone she encounters. Her ex-coach dies and bequeaths Hope $500,000 contingent she gets the money only if she coaches the young hometown gymnastics phenom Maggie Townsend (Haley Lu Richardson) in her quest for Olympic fame. Also interested in Maggie’s future are the local gym manager Ben (or, as Hope calls him “Twitchy”, because of some unfortunate facial tics  -played by Thomas Middleditch) and Lance »
