New Who Review – “Deep Breath”

25 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

See, I told you he was good.

Peter Capaldi is off and flying in the role he’s been practicing for since he was four years old.  The Paternoster gang is here to cushion the blow of the wild turns in tone and character, there’s a well-hidden piece of chalk, and a dinosaur explodes.

Mind your handles, watch the spoilers and take a…

Deep Breath

By Steven Moffat

Directed by Ben Wheatley

So, there’s this dinosaur in Victorian London.  The Paternoster Gang appear to investigate, and are only slightly surprised to learn that The Doctor is involved, by dint of watching said dinosaur cough the Tardis up like Elizabeth Taylor hocking up a chicken bone.  The Doctor has regenerated, and as is traditional after sais process, his mental faculties, including the ability to pilot his time capsule, are a bit dodgy.  He exits both the ship and consciousness in rapid succession, »

Parole Denied for John Lennon's Killer, Mark David Chapman

23 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Lennon's killer was denied release from prison in his eighth appearance before a parole board, correction officials said Friday. The decision on Mark David Chapman by a three-member board came after a hearing Wednesday, the state Department of Corrections said. Chapman fired five shots on Dec. 8, 1980, outside the Dakota apartment house where Lennon lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side, hitting the ex-Beatle four times in front of his wife, Yoko Ono, and others. He was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder. An attorney for Ono said Friday that she had no immediate comment. »

Lone Star Cinema: Giant

19 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

A poster for Giant billed the iconic Texas film as The Giant of Them All.

The poster hardly exaggerated. Running more than three hours, starring three of Hollywood's biggest stars of the era, spanning more than two decades and set against the vastness of a cattle ranch, Giant seemed as big as Texas itself when it was released in 1956.

To the film's legions of fans and many critics, Giant is still a giant. No other film captures the mythical Texas -- if not the real one -- quite like George Stevens' epic story. Countless films have been made here, but with its swaggering view of life in the Lone Star State, Giant may be the most Texan (again, in the completely mythical sense) of all.

Based on a 1952 novel by prolific novelist and playwright Edna Ferber, Giant is the story of the Benedict family, owners of a 595,000-acre West Texas cattle ranch. »

Suddenly, last Icymi posting....

17 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

August isn't an ideal month for blogging. People are vacationing or otherwise desperate to make use of the last stretch of summer (Turns out most people's idea of summer fun does not include hanging out online reading articles about the Oscars and Liz Taylor classics) and everyone is sick of current movies too as the summer blockbusters begin to blur together and everyone waits for the movies to get serious again since August is usually reserved for the riskier or less stellar blockbuster wannabes. So if you've been in & out, here's a handful of highlights from the past two weeks you might have missed.

Factory 25 Springs For ‘Hellaware'; DigiNext Takes ‘Pass The Light’ & ‘Construction'; Cinedigm Inks Wiesenthal Docu Deal

14 August 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Brooklyn-based distributor Factory 25 has acquired North American rights to Hellaware, writer-director Michael M. Bilandic’s indie satire about a wannabe photographer caught in the lowbrow-highbrow collision between the NYC art gallery scene and the grimy rapcore world of Juggalo culture. Keith Poulson stars as Nate, whose coked-up YouTube search leads him to a music video by Insane Clown Posse knockoff the Young Torture Killers. The fictional band drew free publicity for the film when online viewers took a controversial music video from the movie for the real thing. Factory 25 will open the film in NYC on September 26 and digitally on September 23.

DigiNext has pacted directly with indie shingle Vision Vehicle Productions for worldwide rights to two features from the label co-founded by actor Malcolm Goodwin (American Gangster, Leatherheads, Breakout Kings, iZombie). Faith-inspired flick Pass The Light stars Cameron Palatas as a 17-year-old high school student who runs for Congress to »

A Year with Kate: Suddenly, Last Summer (1959)

13 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 33 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn is like the Goddess from the Machine.

I want to write about Katharine Hepburn, but the movie keeps getting in the way! Reading last night’s contributions to Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I was struck by how many bloggers described Suddenly, Last Summer as “camp,” “wildly expressive,” or “absolutely batshit gonzo crazy.” This is a film that will not be ignored. It’s garish and shocking. The psycho-babble hasn’t aged well--as Nathaniel points out, such things rarely do. The themes of cannibalism, sexual deviance, and monstrous madness creep like kudzu vines hanging in Violet Venable’s garden, blocking the light and threatening to squeeze the resistance out of unwary viewers who venture into the film unwarned.

This unsettling excess had been, up to that point, unusual for director Joseph L. Mankiewicz--best known for character dramas--but can be easily traced to his collaborators. »

Nearly five years after her death, Lifetime is bringing Brittany Murphy’s story to the small screen. The network — famous for its biopics of dead celebrities — announced on Tuesday that it will premiere the two-hour television movie on Sept. 6.

Stepping into the starlet’s shoes is Amanda Fuller, who last appeared on Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing and had bit roles on Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The film will tell the story of Murphy’s beginnings when her mother Sharon (Sherilyn Fenn) tried to turn her into a child star and the moments leading up to her unexpected death on Dec. 20, 2009. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will also look at Sharon’s claims that her daughter’s death was not an accident.

There are no specific details about which of Murphy’s most famous roles — Tai in Clueless, Daisy in Girl, Interrupted, or Alex in 8 Mile »

Visual Index ~ Suddenly Last Summer (1959)

12 August 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This week's Hit Me With Your Best Shot episode is devoted to the film adaptation of Tennessee William's Suddenly Last Summer (1959) in which a brain surgeon (Montgomery Clift) whose hospital is in dire need of cash is enlisted by a filthy rich woman (Katharine Hepburn) to perform a lobotomy on her niece (Elizabeth Taylor) because that niece keeps telling lies about her dead gay son. Got that? That's just the kick-off to the crazy.

This sensationalistic film, which was the third and final onscreen pairing of bosom buddies and immortal stars Taylor and Clift, was nominated for three Oscars: Two Best Actress nominations and Art Direction.
