‘American Beauty 2’ is Real, and it is Glorious

16 March 2017 5:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Short of the DayA bag, a man, and a story of ruthless, hilarious vengeance.

My three-word, gut-punch review of the short film American Beauty 2: “Best. Sequel. Ever.”

Allow me to expand.

There are ingenious films, there are hilarious films, and then there is Zak Stoltz’s American Beauty 2, which is both of these things and so very much more. It doesn’t deal with any of the human characters from the first film, rather the empty white plastic bag floating in the breeze, who we all know was the real star anyway.

More than a decade has passed since last we saw ole baggy (Rite Aid Bag #54987, according to the credits), and he’s still doing his thing, drifting along metropolitan alleyways waiting to inspire pretention in any aspiring artist who comes along, or, alternately, smite any fool who dares offend him. Thus enter said fool (Brooks Morrison), who callously douses baggy in neon-colored Big Gulp »

25 films all but guaranteed to cheer you up

9 March 2017 11:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Richards Mar 24, 2017

Need to find a bit of movie happiness? Here are 25 films that might just do the trick...

Let's face it, we could all probably do with a little bit of cheering up right about now. Times are scary and times are tough, so it's perfectly natural to look for some kind of reassurance that everything will indeed be all right in the end.

Film is perhaps one of the most powerful and effective tools in doing this. It can be a transportative experience, an escape from reality, and, most importantly, it can act as a reminder of all that is good in the world.

With that in mind, here’s a list of 25 movies that are almost-guaranteed to make you smile and restore your faith in humanity...

City Lights

In truth, any of Charlie Chaplin’s films are perfect for those times when you just need to smile. »

Interview: Dale Robinette, on His Iconic Photo From ‘La La Land’

23 February 2017 6:15 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The photograph of the 2016 movie year is undoubtedbly the iconic shot of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, caught in mid dance, in the musical “La La Land.” The film received 14 nominations for this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony (Feb. 26th), and the “Unit Still Photographer” who got the shot was Dale Robinette.

“Uncle Dale” Robinette first contacted me via email in 2013, to give information about some photos he took on the film “Lovelace.” Ever since then he has been a reliable email pal, sending me image after image from the movie sets that he is “blessed” (his word) to work on. He has plied his skills in Hollywood as a Unit Still Photographer since 1988, after a career as a stage and television actor in New York and Los Angeles. Starting with a TV short called “The Big Five” (1988), he has worked his way up the ladder, and has built »

My favorite best picture Oscar winner: Gentleman's Agreement

15 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the first of a new series, Peter Bradshaw explains why the 1947 drama about a journalist exploring antisemitism by posing as a Jew remains a sharp and high-minded watch

In 1947, the Oscar for best picture went to Gentleman’s Agreement, starring Gregory Peck as the campaigning journalist on a mission. Awards for best director also went to Elia Kazan and best supporting actress to Celeste Holm. At first glance, it looks like a rather worthy “issue movie” of the 40s, the sort of film that the Academy felt it had to honour. Yet Gentleman’s Agreement is still a riveting movie, intriguing, a little exasperating, alternately naive and very sharp, fascinating for what it puts in and leaves out.

It is about the antisemitism of prosperous postwar America and the insidious way that Jews were excluded from upscale social clubs, vacation resorts and of course jobs. There were no official bans, »

Oliver Stone Honored at ‘Filming in Italy’ Festival

4 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The “Filming in Italy” initiative, which lasts until Feb. 8, held a cocktail party on Friday at the home of producer Cecilia Peck, daughter of the late actor Gregory Peck, and husband Daniel Voll. The project also runs in association with Tiziana Rocca of Agnus Dei Production, Baume & Mercier watchmakers and the Italian Cultural Institute.

The initiative aims to persuade filmmakers, producers and studios to consider shooting their next project in Italy. Oliver Stone received an award, courtesy of the watchmakers, at the “Filming in Italy” festival.

Guests were huddled intimately, schmoozing and laughing while eating slices of margherita pizza and nibbling on fresh mozzarella made on-site. Members of the Italian Film Commissions Association Network (IFC) hope to spread the word that Italy is more than just good food.

How Hollywood Has Changed the Way Everybody Talks (Guest Blog)

25 January 2017 3:35 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Show business has always understood the value of words. Whether on the silver screen, television, radio or the stage, writing is crucial to a production’s success or failure. “You struggle, you claw, and you scratch trying to camouflage a bad script,” the actor Gregory Peck once said. “When the script is sound and the structure is there, you just sort of sail through.” Behind the scenes, the specificity of what’s said is every bit as important. When a 19th-century stage hand was told to make sure the star was “in the limelight,” he’d be in big trouble if he didn’t. »

One of the Greatest Film Noir Stars of Them All? Four Crime Classics to Remember

21 January 2017 11:36 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dana Andrews movies: Film noir actor excelled in both major and minor crime dramas. Dana Andrews movies: First-rate film noir actor excelled in both classics & minor fare One of the best-looking and most underrated actors of the studio era, Dana Andrews was a first-rate film noir/crime thriller star. Oftentimes dismissed as no more than a “dependable” or “reliable” leading man, in truth Andrews brought to life complex characters that never quite fit into the mold of Hollywood's standardized heroes – or rather, antiheroes. Unlike the cynical, tough-talking, and (albeit at times self-delusionally) self-confident characters played by the likes of Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and, however lazily, Robert Mitchum, Andrews created portrayals of tortured men at odds with their social standing, their sense of ethics, and even their romantic yearnings. Not infrequently, there was only a very fine line separating his (anti)heroes from most movie villains. »

46 Days Until "Feud"

18 January 2017 11:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

first promotional shot from Feud

The new Ryan Murphy anthology TV series' first eight-episode season, premieres on Sunday March 5th (yes exactly one week after the Oscars which seems very kind). The season looks at the legendarily bitchy Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) vs Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) wars. Two Oscar winners playing two Oscar winners. We're in!

We don't want to know too much ahead of time as that ruins so many TV shows and movies these days but it would be nice to have a leaked list of films referenced beyond Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) so we could do a little revisiting of some key titles before the premiere, though it seems likely that the series will also cover the production of Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964) given the character list in the credits. Jessica Lange doesn't look or feel much like Joan Crawford in face or persona which »

Right in the middle of WW2, 20th Fox struck religious pay dirt with two respectful religion-themed movies, one about a miracle and another about the hard life of a priest. Each created a new Hollywood star. Five years later there began a regular Hollywood Bible War. In 1949 Cecil B. DeMille released his first Biblical epic in Technicolor, Samson and Delilah, throwing violence, sex and hammy acting at the screen in even measure. MGM bounced back with a tremendous production of »

13 Cursed Movies for Friday the 13th (Photos)

12 January 2017 8:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Happy Friday the 13th. Making movies is a business that proves that Murphy’s Law is a real and horrifying thing. For these 13 movies, chaos, misfortune, and sometimes an unnerving amount of death hovered over like a black raincloud that won’t go away. Over the course of the making of the Poltergeist trilogy, four cast members died. The most shocking was 12-year-old Heather O’Rourke, who died of septic shock at age 12. No one was seriously hurt during filming of The Omen. but chaos seemed to surround everyone involved. Star Gregory Peck and screenwriter David Seltzer had their flights struck by. »
