Listen to Parts of the Rare Original Score for Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey'

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Stanley Kubrick’s score for 2001: A Space Odyssey possesses some of the greatest classical works ever written, and with it his legendary direction are matched with some of the greatest visuals ever produced. The merging of the sounds by Strauss and Khachaturian with visual effects, which during the film’s release of 1968 were groundbreaking, have been imitated and spoofed ever since. You know all this already. But did you know that 2001 has an original score? At the inaugural MondoCon, taking place this past weekend in Austin at the same time as Fantastic Fest (read our coverage here), we stopped by a historic panel, “2001: A Lost Score,” which explored the score created by composer Alex North for the film. Presented by film composer and host of...

This is the Part I Really Like: Top ten movie-in-movie moments

15 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sometimes it’s just a joke, sometimes it has hidden meaning, and sometimes it’s simply the director showing off their eclectic taste in all things celluloid (read: Quentin Tarantino). But one thing’s for sure: the annals of cinema history are littered with movie-in-movie moments.

The granddaddy of movie-in-movie moments comes from The Shawshank Redemption – released twenty years ago today. So in honour of its anniversary, we thought we’d go all “meta” by looking back at ten of the most memorable movie-in-movie moments to grace the multiplex.

Gilda (1946) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Though it’s probably a little bit cruel to show prison inmates Rita Hayworth at her finest, this 40’s classic plays a prominent role in the film’s plot as Andy later uses a poster from the 1946 noir to cover the entrance to the tunnel that he’s painstakingly carved out of the prison walls.

George Sluizer 1932 - 2014

22 September 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Dutch filmmaker George Sluizer, the man behind psychological horror The Vanishing, has died. He was 82. Sluizer cut his teeth with an award-winning short called The Low Lands in 1961, before graduating to the longer form with 1972’s João And The Knife, a haunting drama set in the Amazon basis, and Twice A Woman seven years later. But it was The Vanishing, a landmark horror in 1988, that made his name.The film, which was released under the title ‘Spoorloos’ (‘Without A Trace’) in Sluizer’s native tongue, was adapted from Tim Krabbé’s novella The Golden Egg and charts the efforts of a man to uncover his fiancée’s fate after she disappears at a motorway service station. No lesser a figure than Stanley Kubrick was moved to describe it “the most horrifying film I’ve ever seen”. As a portrayal of obsession, it boasts shades of Hitchcock; as a record of »

Baz Dazzled!

Manuel here with some Spectacular Spectacular news!

This one goes out to those Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin fanatics out there (there’s still a number of us, right?). Since releasing The Great Gatsby ...sorry, two-time Academy Award winner The Great Gatsby, Baz has been flexing his muscles elsewhere: he directed some beautiful shorts for the Prada/Schiaparelli exhibit at the Metropolitan museum, he directed the musical stage adaptation of Strictly Ballroom currently playing in Sydney, and threw quite the lavish party (does he throw any other kind?) to commemorate the opening of Melbourne’s newest mall, Emporium. We’ve also been hearing whispers of him possibly directing the long-gestating Stanley Kubrick project on Napoleon for HBO. While we wait, those of us in the tri-state area (or those visiting) may get our Baz-fix from the holiday windows at Barney’s this winter in what the retail company is calling »

Nathan Fillion And Alison Brie Centre Stage For ‘The Seekers Of Perpetual Love’

13 September 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

While staging a live reading of a screenplay for a movie you’re hoping to raise money for is common practice, ‘Black List Live!’ appear to be putting a bit more effort in than most. Having brought us Jared Harris in 1969: A Space Odyssey (a film that suggests Stanley Kubrick faked the Moon landing), they have now unveiled the charming line-up of Castle and Community stars Nathan Fillion and Alison Brie, who will tread the boards for The Seekers Of Perpetual Love. The comedy concerns a well-to-do New York family who enlist a “New Age deprogrammer” for a road trip they hope will culminate in the rescue of one of their own from a cult. Victoria Strouse is directing her own piece, originally written in 2008. Other cast members include Justin Bartha and Melanie Lynskey.

The Black List is an infamous collection of unproduced scripts and it makes perfect sense »

Tiff: Douglas Trumbull screens 'Ufotog,' makes case for immersive filmmaking

11 September 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Filmmaker and legendary special-effects guru Douglas Trumbull gave a special demonstration at the Toronto Film Festival, screening 10 minutes of Ufotog, his high-intensity, 3-D immersive work-in-progress that he filmed at 120 frames per second. Most Hollywood movies are filmed and projected at 24 frames per second, the industry standard for almost 100 years, even though digital camera and projector technology has opened the door for much greater speeds. In 2012, Peter Jackson filmed The Hobbit at 48 frames per second—and though the film grossed more than a billion around the globe, many viewers flinched at the film’s “soap-opera” look.

Fan Expo 2014: Sheryl Lee And The Grady Twins Talk Twin Peaks, The Shining, And Being Dead Girls

9 September 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The brief scenes in which Danny Torrence encounters The Grady Sisters haunting the halls of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, are not only considered some of the scariest moments in that film, but some of the most ghastly images ever shot. One can only imagine what it must've been like for real-life twins Louise and Lisa Burns, who in their girlhoods, were the stuff nightmares were made of for an entire adult world. Perhaps nobody understands this experience better than Sheryl Lee, or, as the world knows her, Laura Palmer, of David Lynch's TV phenomenon Twin Peaks. For years, the mysterious murder of Laura Palmer and the identity of her killer, were the biggest subjects on the pop culture landscape, thanks to...

Watch: The Visual Poetry of Stanley Kubrick

5 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

“This is my rifle, there are many like it, but this one is mine,” could easily be amended to “this is my Stanley Kubrick tribute…” for the world wide web of Vimeo. Nevertheless, here is a nice addition to the catalogue from Marc Müller which pairs Kubrick’s characteristic classical pieces (“The Blue Danube,”  “Symphony #9,” etc.) with his use of tracking shots, combat, close-ups, one-point perspectives and on. If not bone-to-space station caliber, there are still some nice cuts to be had. »

Denzel Washington's Reddit Ama: The 10 Best Questions & Answers

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not everyone can do a good Reddit Ama. Some people don't get the format or how to interact with fans or are just generally boring. Not Denzel Washington. He absolutely owned his Reddit Ama this afternoon, in anticipation of his upcoming film "The Equalizer," not just answering questions but expounding on them in detail. Here are our favorite tidbits from his Reddit. You can read the whole thing here.

On kicking all the butts in "The Book of Eli":

There were a lot of takes. We worked on those fight scenes for a month. They were well-choreographed, and in fact, there's one scene where i think I fight 15 different guys at once - we actually worked it so I could fight 15 guys at one time! I did ninety percent, I don't know what percent, my own stunts, the stuntmen didn't have to do as much, but that was mostly me. »

The Last Of Robin Hood – The Review

4 September 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As we bid goodbye to the Summer action blockbusters, we say hello once more to the serious slate of films looking to pick up award gold in the last few months of the year. And what better subject matter than the true story or the biographical or “bio-pic”? Maybe a good mix of the two, and since Hollywood enjoys celebrating itself why not tackle one of its greatest stars? Though not as highly merchandised today at contemporaries Bogart, Monroe, or Hepburn (either one), few stars shone as brightly in that golden age than Errol Flynn, king of the silver screen swashbucklers. Now Flynn was played by the similarly dashing Jude Law ten years ago in the Howard Hughes story, The Aviator. And previously he was parodied wonderfully by Peter O’Toole as Alan Swann in the raucous comic gem My Favorite Year in 1982 and by former Bond Timothy Dalton as »
