The Wrong Man

30 January 2016 11:16 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Alfred Hitchcock's true-life saga of a man wrongly accused may be Hitchcock's most troublesome movie -- all the parts work, but does it even begin to come together? Henry Fonda is the 'ordinary victim of fate' and an excellent Vera Miles is haunting as the wife who responds to the guilt and stress by withdrawing from reality. The Wrong Man Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1956 / B&W / 1:85 widescreen / 105 min. / Street Date January 26, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 21.99 Starring Henry Fonda, Vera Miles, Anthony Quayle, Harold J. Stone, John Heldabrand, Doreen Lang, Norma Connolly, Lola D'Annunzio, Robert Essen, Dayton Lummis, Charles Cooper, Esther Minciotti, Laurinda Barrett, Nehemiah Persoff.

Let There Be Light: John Huston’s Wartime Documentaries

19 January 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

When John Huston went to war he took his mission seriously... as an artist. He made four wartime docus for the army. San Pietro and the long suppressed Let There Be Light are the classics we studied in film school; Winning Your Wings is typical enlistment booster material and Report from the Aleutians a remarkably good record of how the war was really fought in far-flung locations. Let There Be Light: John Huston's Wartime Documentaries Blu-ray Olive Films 1942-1945 Color and B&W 1:33 flat full frame 281 min. Street Date January 19, 2016 available through the Olive Films website 29.95 Directed by John Huston

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Of the Hollywood directors who 'went to war' and made high-profile Signal Corps films for the public, John Huston was surely the most innovative. He made one enlistment booster for the Army Air Corps and then three pictures that the Army thought were either too long, »

The Woman Who Knew Too Little in Alfred Hitchock’s Suspicion

15 January 2016 9:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Released 75 years ago, Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion (1941), his fourth film to be made in the United States, was a departure from his previous films. Unlike The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), The 39 Steps (1935), or The Lady Vanishes (1938), Suspicion eschews the globetrotting and spying that made those films so exhilarating. It’s an intimate affair, a chamber drama (or chamber suspense film) primarily led by Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine, only occasionally breached by other supporting actors. Hitchcock had rarely worked on such a minimal scale before; even in Rebecca (1940); the mansion Manderlay was practically its own character. The isolation of Grant and Fontaine’s marriage is suffocating and without precedent in Hitchcock’s filmography. Though flawed due to Production Code restrictions, Suspicion remains one of Hitchcock’s most fascinating experiments.

Joan Fontaine plays Lina McLaidlaw, a woman presumably more interested in books than men (a woman wearing glasses in a »

David Bowie, The Actor

14 January 2016 3:29 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

David Bowie’s death came as a shock to many. I had awoken during a night of restless sleep and decided to put on Bowie’s newest album as I tried to fall back asleep. Before I had drifted off again there was an alert on my phone, a rarity that late at night. It was difficult to believe that David Bowie could be dead, so soon after releasing a new album, but the announcement of his death felt even stranger, coming at the moment of my personal connection with his music. There will be no more music from Bowie, but his connection to the arts extends beyond his music. In fact, beyond being a trailblazing musician, Bowie was also an accomplished actor. That part of his oeuvre was understandably subservient to his music, but was nonetheless underrecognized.

Part of what made Bowie’s acting so captivating was that he »

Watch: 5-Minute Supercut Highlights The Tributes To Cinema In Pixar Films

13 January 2016 1:12 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The brilliant minds at Pixar — some of the industry’s finest animators, writers, and directors — are clearly cinema royalty in their own right. The intricate planning, structure, and storylines of their films and their sequels are far superior to many live-action films nowadays, not to mention the numerous Academy Awards they’ve picked up (and, in our opinion, might receive more of). Read More: The 30 Best Voice Performances In Pixar Movies In his new video essay, Jorge Luengo Ruiz compiles a master edit of Pixar films, and the odes within the films to other classic movies. What’s clear is that the folks at the studio are all clearly "Star Wars" fans, with homages in “Toy Story” (to “A New Hope”), “Toy Story 2” (“The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”), “Toy Story 3” (“Return of the Jedi”), “Wall-e” (“A New Hope”), and, of course, “Up” (“A New Hope »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 10-1

9 January 2016 4:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 50-41

9 January 2016 4:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all have predisposed notions about the infamous “romantic comedy.” As with other genres, there’s a large subsection of offerings, giving it a bad name. But, for every tired, cliché-driven comedy, there is another impressive offering that redefines the genre, garners plenty of laughs, and tells an honest story about love and relationships, however warped they may be. In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at the fifty romantic comedy films that should be seen. These may not all be classic films, but they certainly put a stamp on the industry and the genre we affectionately call “rom-coms.”

 #50. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Most of Wes Anderson’s films could be described as romantic comedies, but his 2012 effort stands out, as its central story focuses on young love and the need to find acceptance. In Anderson’s world, while quirks abound, true connections between characters are commonplace. With Moonrise Kingdom, »

From 'Glory' to 'Malcolm X' - The Ten Best Denzel Washington Performances and Why

6 January 2016 4:35 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Denzel Washington will be awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award at this Sunday's Golden Globes, and as a result, we thought we'd look back at the ten films that I think best showcase his undeniable movie star charisma. Are these the ten best Denzel Washington films? The ten best Denzel Washington performances? It feels to us like it's hard to make a distinction between the two, since his best work occurs when people actually challenge him or give him something great to do. There are some very solid films and performances that didn't make this list, like Courage Under Fire, Crimson Tide, 2 Guns, and Philadelphia, but we feel like we picked the ten movies that best exemplify why Washington has been electrifying audiences for 30 years now. Washington paid his dues in the early days, and I'm sure he'd be perfectly happy to just forget Carbon Copy or Heart Condition ever happened. »
