The Imitation Game and important biopics

13 November 2014 2:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Benedict Cumberbatch playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, James explores the importance of a good biopic...

Benedict Cumberbatch is Alan Turing. Benedict Cumberbatch is also the most popular Sherlock Holmes in history, the terrible and stupendous dragon Smaug in The Hobbit film adaptations and the ultimate nemesis that is Khan in the alternate-timeline that constitutes the Star Trek reboot movie cycle.

Benedict Cumberbatch is also set to become Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - the hottest multi-franchise in the galaxy (several galaxies, actually) and the multifaceted pop-cultural entity magnetically attracting the most fascination and speculation right now (even more than the upcoming Star Wars sequels, which Cumberbatch has also been heavily linked with. In all likelihood, for all we know, Benedict Cumberbatch is also a Star Wars secret).

Benedict Cumberbatch is also Benedict Cumberbatch - one of the most in-demand actors alive with a cult-like fan »

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 »

12 November 2014 10:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Remembered as both an iconic Hollywood actress and a princess, Grace Kelly would have been 85 on Wednesday. The beautiful blonde was a "hands-on" mom, as her son Albert described her to People, but she was also a style maven whose elegance, poise and aura of cool hasn't worn off over the years. Life has a number of photos - some of which have never been published before - of Kelly and her husband, Prince Rainier III of Monaco. We're able to share a few with you here. As Life writes, "The tale of the American movie star and Philadelphia native »

Grace Kelly's Pop Culture Legacy

12 November 2014 1:54 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Grace Kelly was born on Nov. 12, so we're celebrating the late actress this week with a look at her pop culture legacy. More than 30 years since her tragic death in a car accident, the world is still fascinated by the Academy Award winner turned princess. At the young age of 26, the American actress retired from acting to move to Monaco and join its royal family. She had met Prince Rainier, the sovereign of Monaco, in April 1955 while at the Cannes Film Festival. A year later, they were married in an event broadcast across Europe. Today, Grace Kelly still holds icon status. Thanks to her talented acting, timeless style, and intriguing personal life, she's left a lasting legacy, which can be seen in movies, books, and more.

'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'- "Gone Girl"

4 November 2014 6:19 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca, Sneak Peek the 'good, the bad and the ugly' in director David Fincher's "Gone Girl", starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good':

I was intrigued by actress Rosamund Pike's Grace Kelly-like housewife, who visually warps into a devious personality.

Actor Tyler Perry is audience-friendly as smug, smiling attorney 'Tanner Bolt'.

Actress Kim Dickens seems a natural as the reassuring and professional 'Detective Rhonda Boney' .

Actress Emily Ratajkowski stole my heart as the luscious and needy mistress 'Andie Fitzgerald'. 

I also enjoyed the music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross showcased (and amplified) throughout the film.

Graf Orlok for 'The Bad': 

Michael, I agree that actress Emily Ratajkowski  ("Blurred Lines") is a sweet surprise in this film.

I also dug Rosamund Pike as 'Amy Elliott-Dunne' being loved-up by Affleck's repulsive character. 

But sorry gang, »

19 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Hollywood films portraying the world — including the troubled side — of show business have garnered best picture nominations for years. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) could be a serious Oscar contender and features Michael Keaton as a former film star known for his portrayal of a superhero named Birdman. He attempts to renew his career by writing, directing and performing in a Broadway play. The film hit theaters Friday. Here are ten best picture Oscar-nominated films about show business (in chronological order):

1. The Red Shoes (1948)

The film is a tragic story about a young ballet dancer (Moira Shearer) who is forced to choose between her future dance career and the composer she falls in love with. The film was nominated for five Oscars and won two.

2. All About Eve (1950)

Anne Baxter stars as Eve, an aspiring, conniving actress who »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part One

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What do film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Agnès Varda, Robert Wise, Fred Zinnemann, Luis Buñuel, Alain Resnais, Roman Polanski, Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman, Louis Malle, Richard Linklater, Tom Tykwer, Alexander Sokurov, Paul Greengrass, Song Il-Gon, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro Iñárritu have in common? More specifically, what type of film have they directed, setting them apart from fewer than 50 of their filmmaking peers? Sorry, “comedy” or “drama” isn’t right. If you’ve looked at this article’s headline, you’ve probably already guessed that the answer is that they’ve all made “real-time” films, or films that seemed to take about as long as their running time.

The real-time film has long been a sub-genre without much critical attention, but the time of the real-time film has come. Cuarón’s Gravity (2013), which was shot and edited so as to seem like a real-time film, floated away with the most 2014 Oscars, »

Brian de Palma’s Passion: Costume as Contemporary Hitchcock

16 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Director Brian De Palma has made movies heavily influenced by Alfred Hitchcock before, but Passion (2012) is the first one whose characters look like they stepped out of one of Hitchcock’s classic films.

Karen Muller-Serreau’s bold and colourful costumes communicate the characters’ hidden desires and make watching Passion a sensory experience. This melodrama centres on two ad executives, Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams), who have a deadline to come up with an ad campaign for a new smartphone. In her sleep, Isabelle thinks of a great idea.

Dirk (Paul Anderson) in typical pinstriped suit with Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) in even more typical black.

The two other principal characters are Isabelle’s assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth) and Christine’s boyfriend Dirk (Paul Anderson) who get tangled in the twists and turns of Christine and Isabelle’s relationship. Dani is an angel-faced redhead who is in unrequited love with her boss Isabelle, »

DVD Review: 'Grace of Monaco'

14 October 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco (2014), about the marriage of Hollywood film star Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and Prince Rainier (Tim Roth) is beautifully shot but lacks depth and tension. When Grace married Prince Rainer III of Monaco in 1956 it was like a fairy tale come true: iconic beauty gets her prince. But Grace sacrificed a successful career for her marriage and Dahan's film opens six years later when the cracks have begun to show. Grace finds it lonely bringing up two small children, while her husband is increasingly absent from the palace; embroiled in a row with France and dealing with affairs of state. So when Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) turns up to offer her a part in Marnie, she's sorely tempted.

Remembering Superman Reeve Ten Years After His Death

10 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Reeve: 'Superman' and his movies (photo: Christopher Reeve in 'Superman' 1978) Christopher Reeve, Superman in four movies from 1978 to 1987, died ten years ago today. In 1995, while taking part in a cross-country horse race in Culpeper, Virginia, Reeve was thrown off his horse, hitting his head on the top rail of a jump; the near-fatal accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He ultimately succumbed to heart failure at age 52 on October 10, 2004. Long before he was cast as Superman aka Clark Kent, the Manhattan-born (as Christopher D'Olier Reeve on September 25, 1952), Cornell University and Juillard School for Drama alumnus was an ambitious young actor whose theatrical apprenticeship included, while still a teenager, some time as an observer at London's Old Vic and Paris' Comédie Française. At age 23, he landed his first Broadway role in a production of Enid Bagnold's A Matter of Gravity, starring Katharine Hepburn. »

How Princess Grace Made Childhood 'Not Palace-y' for Her Children

2 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Grace Kelly was the ultimate Hitchcock blonde: cool, elegant and mysterious. But the Rear Window star, who left Hollywood for good after marrying Monaco's Prince Rainier III in 1956, was also a "hands-on mom," her only son, Prince Albert, tells People in an exclusive interview. Beneath his mother's white-gloved glamour was a parent who brought her kids (Albert and his sisters, Caroline and Stephanie) to the Jersey Shore, wore turbans to "hide a bad hair day," and encouraged party guests to plunge into the palace pool after a private reception for the Monte Carlo ballet.
