On the Beach | Blu-Ray Review

26 August 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Within the well intentioned lexicon of Stanley Kramer’s filmography, his 1959 title, On the Beach remains the most prescient, a post-apocalyptic science fiction filmed steeped in light melodrama. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Score (Ernest Gold) and a pair of Oscar nominations, nuclear fallout after the deployment of mankind’s deadliest war time weapons has rendered mankind obsolete with the exception of the inhabitants of Australia and the crew of the U.S. submarine Sawfish, guided by Captain Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck). An Sos signal in San Francisco leads Towers out with a crew to determine if the radioactivity has abated, but there’s no such luck. Worse, the radiation cloud will soon reach Australia’s shores, leaving the last remnants of humanity little time to grapple with the encroaching end.

As the last remaining humans navigate their remaining days of existence in Australia, paralyzed by »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Illustrated Lauren Bacall

21 August 2014 10:18 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

An Italian To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks, USA, 1944). Art by Luigi Martinati.

Lauren Bacall, who left us last week after an astonishing 70 years of making movies, was one of the most beautiful women ever to grace a movie screen and the first golden age Hollywood star I ever fell for. With her unmistakeable features—those eyebrows, those lips—she must have been one of the easiest stars to capture in an illustration and thus a gift to poster artists. For most of her career, however, while she was never less than a star, she was rarely a leading lady, playing co-star to her great love Humphrey Bogart in four of her first five movies, then to Charles Boyer, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable, Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, Rock Hudson, Gregory Peck and so on. As a result, she rarely appeared solo in posters and is often dwarfed by her male co-stars. »

Damien: Omen II (1978) review

19 August 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Damien: Omen II (1978)

Written by: Harvey Bernhard, Stanley Mann, Mike Hodges

Directed by: Don Taylor

Cast: William Holden (Richard Thorn), Lee Grant (Ann Thorn), Jonathan Scott-Taylor (Damien Thorn), Sylvia Sidney (Aunt Marion), Robert Foxworth (Paul Buher), Lance Henriksen (Seargent Neff), Meshach Taylor (Dr. Kane)

I know it may be a bit peculiar to review a sequel without doing a retrospective of a whole series of films, but I actually have never seen this one. I watched it and the third movie “The Final Conflict” with Sam Neill back to back. While I haven’t seen the fourth entry, I can say this is probably the last one that has the feel of the original. I can compare this to “Jaws 2”. While not as powerful as the original, it still seems like it exists in the same world. Also like all the “Jaws” sequels after part two, »

Lauren Bacall Appreciation: They Don’t Make Them Like Her Anymore

13 August 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

“Just be careful. She doesn’t suffer fools.” That was the advice a publicist gave me just before they put me on the phone with Lauren Bacall about 20 years ago. She was promoting a TNT movie, The Portrait, and as a writer-producer on The Arsenio Hall Show I had persuaded the powers that be to book her on the show — even if, on the surface, she wasn’t the typical kind of contemporary guest we often had on the show. Quite frankly, I just wanted to meet Lauren Bacall, to just hear that legendary sultry voice on the other end of the phone. So I set about doing the pre-interview and apparently passed the “no fools” test because I found her to be a pussycat.

Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies

8 August 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It can be such a beautiful happening when the natural forces of humanity and the wild kingdom can get together and establish a sense of harmony in motion pictures. Also, it can be a compelling yet regrettable conflict as well when man and beast decide to collide in the interest of big screen entertainment. Whatever the case may be certainly does not matter because the concept of  beasts of all species (rather it be of the four-legged or two-legged variety) collectively clashing or cooperating sends a special message about triumph, tragedy and just plain tenderness.

In Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies we will look at some of the best selections where man and animal co-exist whether it be in calmness or chaos. There is no doubt that one can come up with numerous top ten lists detailing their ideal man-animal themes in cinema. The struggle for »
