Whenever I go to the Sundance Film Festival, the movies that I look forward to seeing most are the Park City At Midnight films. Those are the crazy fun genre movies that a lot of you would also enjoy watching. Sundance has announced the movie lineup for those film as well as the films in the Spotlight and New Frontier sections. It looks like there are a lot of cool movies that are going to be worth watching this year. Especially in the Park City At Midnight lineup. I'm really excited about going this year! Check out the Competition movie line-up here.
Park City At Midnight
From horror flicks to comedies to works that defy any genre, these unruly films will keep you edge-seated and wide awake.

Here’s the thing that blew my mind about The Rocketeer: about two-thirds of the way into this movie, I couldn’t stop wondering how this movie wasn’t more of a respected classic instead of a “Hey, remember The Rocketeer?” kind of film. It had good characters, a cool story, it nailed the feel of 1940s serials. Man! And then I watched the last third. But we’ll get to that. For now, let’s talk about what the movie did right, like the cast. Let me begin by going on record as saying that I love Alan Arkin in basically everything he does. There’s just something about his performances that makes him feel like an old relative. Maybe it’s because, growing up, my parents loved The In-Laws, which was one of the few movies we actually owned, and they watched it pretty frequently. 1980s and 90s Jennifer Connelly was also excellent in »

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (again), and as usual it’s getting to those last few weeks before the big day when creative ideas and planning make way for frantic grabs at whatever is left on the shelves after the Black Friday zombie hordes have cleared everything out.
But fear not: because the best of Christmas is watching movies, re-watching old TV specials and trying hard to forget that George Lucas ever decided that anyone wanted a Star Wars Christmas show, there’ll always be a helping hand round these parts for those who want it.
So if you’re buying for a difficult brother, a picky sister or just for the film, gaming or TV fan in your life, what follows is a compendium of the finest gift ideas for this year’s festivities, as usual there are massive opportunities to win most of what has been included… »

We’ve been appreciating the clearly defined, distributor friendly, solid eight Spotlight section since it’s inception a couple of years back. In 2014 we had sugary, critic darlings from the world film festival circuit in films from Pawel Pawlikowski, Steven Knight and a solid foursome from Cannes from the likes of Jeremy Saulnier, Ritesh Batra, Jim Jarmusch and Alain Guiraudie. This year we have a pair from Berlin (Aloft, ’71), four films from Cannes (Girlhood, The Tribe, White Dog, Wild Tales), one from Venice (99 Homes), one from Tiff (Eden) and Mark Cousins’ London BFI preemed, 6 Desires: Dh Lawrence and Sardinia. This really is a cinephile’s wetdream.

Kevin Bacon, Keanu Reeves and Eli Roth are among the bigger names aiming to generate buzz and raise gooseflesh in the Park City at Midnight sidebar at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the lineup of which was announced today alongside those of the festival’s Spotlight and New Frontier sections.
Fresh off his turn in “John Wick,” Reeves stars in the Roth-directed “Knock Knock,” a psychological horror film about a married man who is paid a fateful visit one weekend by two beautiful girls. The thriller, which marks Roth’s first trip to Sundance, will screen in Park City at Midnight, along with Jon Watts’ “Cop Car,” starring Bacon as a corrupt police officer chasing the kids who took his vehicle for a joyride; Corin Hardy’s “The Hallow,” a shocker set in a mysterious Irish forest; and “Hellions,” Bruce McDonald’s thriller about a teenager terrorized by trick-or-treaters on Halloween. »

One day after announcing the World and Us Drama and Documentary Competition entries for both, Sundance revealed the films in the Spotlight and Park City at Midnight programs, as well as the films and art installations that will be part of the New Frontiers program at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Drew McWeeny will be handling the Park City at Midnight announcement, just as he'll be handling our coverage of the Midnight slate from Sundance. The Spotlight program is set aside for films that may have played in festivals around the world or even domestically, but have support amidst the Sundance selectors. The high profile entries in the Spotlight program include Kornél Mundruczó's "White God," which won the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes last summer. It's the story of a girl who has to give up her mixed-breed dog and the journey girl and dog take to be reunited. »

Consider that country legend June Carter Cash’s own life story could have made an equally if even more compelling big-screen saga than that of husband Johnny Cash – one that was eventually told in a not-bad TV movie starring singer Jewel. But for every “Coal Miner’s Daughter” that made it to the big screen, Hollywood has optioned countless true-life accounts of great men that went on to compete in the Academy Award race – including “Walk the Line.” At least Witherspoon’s co-lead status opposite Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic Man in Black was acknowledged, unlike supporting winners such as Jennifer Connelly in “A Beautiful Mind” and Marcia Gay Harden in “Pollock,” who clearly were the main female stars of their films. Then again, Witherspoon's gold trophy appears to have done more harm than good as far as post-Oscar opportunities go. Much like previous best-actress winners Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman and Hilary Swank, »

Blade Runner 2054 by Cory Schmitz
Hellboy 3 by Orlando Arocena
Next week, Iam8bit in Los Angeles will open an art show called Sequel, which features art for fictional movie sequels. I may have to attend the exhibit to explore art for sequels that I hope will one day be released, and sequels I pray never get made. A sampling of the art that will be featured at the show has been released, and there are some really well crafted pieces here that may have you saying, “Well, I guess a sequel to that wouldn’t be thaaat bad.” In fact, some of these concepts would actually be fantastic! While only Hellboy 3 and Blade Runner 2 are pretty much the only ones here with any sort of legs, I'd totally be interested in seeing a Labyrinth 2 or Rocketeer 2, a.k.a. the only films where Jennifer Connelly probably wouldn't have to play Russell Crowe’s wife. »

If it’s Friday, then you know Big Morning Buzz Live has your fix of celebrity fashion fails. Join host Nick Lachey, co-host Michelle Buteau, and style expert Jackie Miranne to see who fell hard in the style game this past week.
Kim Kardashian, who’s been upping her fashion cred since she’s been with Kanye West, failed with a dress that wasn’t tailored properly for her famous curves. Singer Florence Welch’s outfit went too heavy on the foliage theme, and Jennifer Connelly should’ve laid off the leather.
In our gallery above, check out all this week’s fails and catch a few that didn’t wind up on the show. And in the clip below, see which stars actually did their red carpets justice by nailing their looks.

Howard Hughes movies (photo: Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes in 'The Aviator') Turner Classic Movies will be showing the Howard Hughes-produced, John Farrow-directed, Baja California-set gangster drama His Kind of Woman, starring Robert Mitchum, Hughes discovery Jane Russell, and Vincent Price, at 3 a.m. Pt / 6 a.m. Et on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Hughes produced a couple of dozen movies. (More on that below.) But what about "Howard Hughes movies"? Or rather, movies -- whether big-screen or made-for-television efforts -- featuring the visionary, eccentric, hypochondriac, compulsive-obsessive, all-American billionaire as a character? Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a dashing if somewhat unbalanced Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 Best Picture Academy Award-nominated The Aviator, other actors who have played Howard Hughes on film include the following: Tommy Lee Jones in William A. Graham's television movie The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977), with Lee Purcell as silent film star Billie Dove, Tovah Feldshuh as Katharine Hepburn, »
