Forgotten Actress Bruce on TCM: Career Went from Dawn of Talkies to L.A.'s Punk Rock Scene

25 August 2015 9:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Virginia Bruce: MGM actress ca. 1935. Virginia Bruce movies on TCM: Actress was the cherry on 'The Great Ziegfeld' wedding cake Unfortunately, Turner Classic Movies has chosen not to feature any non-Hollywood stars – or any out-and-out silent film stars – in its 2015 “Summer Under the Stars” series.* On the other hand, TCM has come up with several unusual inclusions, e.g., Lee J. Cobb, Warren Oates, Mae Clarke, and today, Aug. 25, Virginia Bruce. A second-rank MGM leading lady in the 1930s, the Minneapolis-born Virginia Bruce is little remembered today despite her more than 70 feature films in a career that spanned two decades, from the dawn of the talkie era to the dawn of the TV era, in addition to a handful of comebacks going all the way to 1981 – the dawn of the personal computer era. Career highlights were few and not all that bright. Examples range from playing the »

Hannibal Season 3 – Episode 12 Review

21 August 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the twelfth episode of Hannibal season 3…

Let me preface with this: I’ve read Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. I’ve seen Manhunter and have watched Red Dragon several times. Now that that’s out of the way… what the hell did I just see?!

Don’t misunderstand; this was an outstanding episode. Even knowing what was going to happen, the episode was wracked with a tremendous amount of tension due to the great performances by the whole cast, but most notably Richard Armitage and Raul Esparza. As Hannibal’s penultimate episode ‘The Number of The Beast is 666’ may prove to be Hannibal’s best.

Restraint was something all the characters lacked in this episode. From the very beginning, everyone was voicing their opinions with no filter. Will was particularly blunt to Jack when he told him how glad he must be not have asked Will to act as bait, »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd in the UK and November 6th in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, »

Spectre Featurette Introduces The Bond Franchise’s New Female Recruits

13 August 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While moviegoers continue to deliberate on exactly who will be singing the film’s main theme song, MGM and Sony have peeled back the curtain on a new Spectre featurette, one which spotlights the film’s new female recruits.

Narrated by Monica Bellucci and the award-winning Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color), here the newcomers offer up new information relating to their respective characters following their formal introduction some months ago. Up first is Bellucci’s Lucia Sciarra, who is on board to play “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” At 50 years of age, Bellucci is bringing a certain tenacity and maturity to her role in Spectre, with director Sam Mendes adding that the actress has that “certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”

A Conversation With Composer Ilan Eshkeri On His Shaun The Sheep Movie Score

12 August 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with The Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to Mossy Bottom Farm.

Shaun The Sheep Movie powers through visual puns, sight gags and rollicking plot twists to arrive at a hard-won realization: there’s no place like home.

As there is no dialogue from any of the characters, the music plays such an important role in the movie. That’s where the fantastic, colorful score from composer Ilan Eshkeri comes in.

Complete with the Shaun the Sheep theme, lively cues, and songs, including the award-friendly “Feels Like Summer” song, Eshkeri score is a wonderful soundtrack for a very funny film.

Eshkeri’s recent film work includes Still Alice, »

Chichester Film Festival | A (Cumber) Batch Of Benedict | Vittorio De Sica | Pout Fest Tour

There’s a decidedly eastern European flavour to this year’s festival, spearheaded by a selection of Russian films. These bring such cultural icons as Sergei Eisenstein (Battleship Potemkin, 28 Aug), Anton Chekhov (biopic The Chekhov brothers, 28 & 30 Aug), Kazimir Malevich (in art biopic Chagall-Malevich, 17 & 26 Aug) and, er, Ralph Fiennes – who apparently learned Russian for his role in Two Women (30 Aug), a new adaptation of Turgenev’s 19th-century drama. There are modern Russian stories, too, starting with a series of films by Andrei “Leviathan” Zvyagintsev (25 to 28 Aug), plus focuses on Polish and Czech cinema.
