The Reason Why Harvey Keitel Quit The Movie “Eyes Wide Shut”

Eyes Wide Shut is more or less about a sexual awakening that seems to be happening throughout movie and the reaction of the main characters that takes place. There’s also a very good reason why Harvey Keitel quit the movie though you might think it’s a bit ridiculous. Personally I don’t after hearing this clip since it’s already been well established that Stanley Kubrick was a hard man to work with as a director. The man was a genius behind the camera without any doubt but that didn’t mean he was the friendliest person or the easiest to understand. Keitel,

Feature: HollywoodChicago.com’s Overrated & Worst Films of 2017

Chicago – Opinions are like certain orifices, everybody has one. The contributors to HollywoodChicago.com – Patrick McDonald, Jon Lennon Espino and Spike Walters – are no strangers to opinions on the film scene, so why not offer judgement on the most overrated and worst films of the year 2017.

The term “overrated” can cover a multitude of films, but mostly it involves the critical darlings that just didn’t resonate with the contributors. The “worst,” of course, Is equally as arbitrary, but the consensus usually is in agreement after experiencing the movie. The following represents the two categories for the 2017 film year.

Christmas Evil: Unwrapping the Taxi Driver of the Horror Genre

When we think about maniacal Santa Clauses in horror, we often go straight to the axe-wielding Billy from Silent Night, Deadly Night, or the homicidal madman who stalked Joan Collins in the Tales From the Crypt movie segment “…And All Through the House” (or its TV episode remake from 1989). For what it’s worth, all these classics have been unseated in my personal Psycho Santa Hall of Fame after a viewing of Christmas Evil, a story that’s more about the psychological unraveling of a factory worker than it is about a body count. In fact, it has far more in common with Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver than any other Christmas horror story around.

Lewis Jackson’s Christmas Evil follows Harry Stadling (Brandon Maggart), an oddball of a human whose obsession with Santa Claus began when he shockingly discovered the truth about Santa. When he was just a boy

Robert De Niro Rocks Platform Shoes to Appear Taller Than Al Pacino on Set: Pic

Robert De Niro Rocks Platform Shoes to Appear Taller Than Al Pacino on Set: Pic
Robert De Niro had to resort to a little movie magic on set in New York City on Wednesday.

The 74-year-old actor is starring alongside Al Pacino in director Martin Scorsese's mob drama, The Irishman, and wore high platform shoes to appear much taller than Pacino. Both were dressed formally for winter, sporting coats and ties.

Interestingly enough, De Niro -- who's 5'10" -- is already naturally taller than Pacino, who's 5'7".

BrosNYC / Backgrid

De Niro plays a labor union official with mob connections, who recalls his possible involvement in the slaying of American labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino). The ensemble cast also includes Jesse Plemons, Bobby Cannavale, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Ray Romano. The film is set to hit theaters in 2019.

De Niro had us all cracking up in February, when the legendary actor passionately responded to "mean tweets" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Robert De Niro Wears Massive Platform Shoes to Tower Over Al Pacino on Set of New Movie

Robert De Niro Wears Massive Platform Shoes to Tower Over Al Pacino on Set of New Movie
Robert De Niro will be towering over Al Pacino in their upcoming mobster film The Irishman thanks to a little movie magic.

On Wednesday, the two Oscar winners were photographed on the New York City set of the 2019 Martin Scorsese flick — with De Niro, 74, wearing lifts (to put it nicely) in his shoes to give him some height over Pacino, 77.

The move has nothing to do with vanity and everything to do with the fact that De Niro’s character, hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, stood tall at 6-ft-4-in. Before his death in 2003, the alleged Bufalino crime family member

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack
The absolutely dog-centric poster for Wes Anderson's upcoming stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs has landed. Wes Anderson has a style that is very much his own and he's not afraid to take some very bizarre, out-of-the-ordinary risks in his movies. Such is the case with his latest directorial effort, which features a bunch of A-list actors voicing dogs in a rather bizarre but hopefully delightful animated movie. Now, we have a new poster for Isle of Dogs, which really lives up to the promise of its name, as it is loaded down with lovable dogs.

Even if Wes Anderson's name wasn't featured on this poster, it would almost be unmistakably something with his signature style and quirk. The Isle of Dogs poser features the text for the movie's title, both in Japanese and English, right down the center, with the human boy Atari right below it. Nearly every other

Does Woody Harrelson spell trouble for Willem Dafoe?

by Nathaniel R

A police chief and a hotel manager, both overwhelmed and sympathetic and arguably the moral center of their movies.

It's been a long time since we had a double-nomination situation in Best Supporting Actor. The last time it happened was 26 years ago when Ben Kingsley and Harvey Keitel were nominated together for Bugsy (1991) - a curious event since Keitel was so much stronger in another Oscar nominated classic from that year. Given the rise of Woody Harrelson with that Screen Actor's Guild nomination and the overall assumed strength of Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri in the Best Picture race, it could well happen again. His co-star Sam Rockwell, already felt locked and loaded for the same movie in a (somewhat) larger part. 

But does this spell trouble for Willem Dafoe in The Florida Project? Consensus was beginning to form that Dafoe, who became famous in the mid

Cop Land

Squint your eyes and you’ll see a Scorsese film in director James Mangold’s 1997 crime drama co-starring Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro. Sylvester Stallone stars in this Serpico-like story about one good cop surrounded by a bunch of bad apples. Stallone won praise for his performance and his De Niro-esque commitment to the part (he gained 40 pounds for the production).

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide,

Netflix Won't Say if Martin Scorsese's The Irishman Will Be Released In Theaters

Martin Scorsese is currently shooting The Irishman in and around New York but it still isn't completely clear if the iconic filmmaker's movie will even make it to the big screen.

Scorsese is believed to have asked Netflix that the film get a theatrical run in 2019. Variety reports that sources familiar with the negotiations say Netflix’s film division chief, has told Scorsese that the film will have a minimum two-week theatrical window. That would at least qualify it for Oscar contention.

But Netflix head of film publicity Julie Fontaine recently told the news outlet that “it’s premature to say anything at this point.”

But even if Scorsese's film goes to theaters it will likely go out on the same day it is available to stream on Netflix, something the streaming giant usually does.

There is no guarantee that Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman will make it to the big screen

It is not a sure thing whether Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman will have a theatrical release.

Shooting is already underway for the much anticipated Netflix picture which will see a rare on screen collaboration between two acting legends, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.

However, there is no guarantee that this big budget mobster flick will make it to theatres, even though Scorsese all but demanded that Netflix give the film a traditional release in 2019.

And Variety reports that Scott Stuber, Netflix’s film division chief, has assured the director that the movie would receive a minimum two week theatrical window – which would allow The Irishman to qualify for Oscar consideration.

However, the head of publicity over at Netflix, Julie Fontaine, has told Variety that “it’s premature to say anything at this point” in regards to the streaming giant’s distribution plans for The Irishman.

This would be rather upsetting news for Scorsese,

Scorsese's The Irishman Not Getting a Theatrical Release?

Scorsese's The Irishman Not Getting a Theatrical Release?
It looks like Martin Scorsese's next movie may not get a theatrical release. The Irishman, which has been trying to get off the ground for nearly a decade, was finally picked up by Netflix, who was willing to put up more than $100 million to get the movie made. The movie brings together Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, the later of which has been retired from acting for some time, in the same movie for the first time ever. That's a big deal and has awards potential written all over it. But Netflix is being quiet on whether or not they're going to give it a theatrical release.

Netflix head of film publicity Julie Fontaine recently said, "it's premature to say anything at this point," regarding the streaming service's release strategy for The Irishman. That certainly doesn't mean that a theatrical release is off the table, especially since

Netflix Mum on Theatrical Release for Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’

Netflix Mum on Theatrical Release for Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’
Shooting is underway in and around New York on Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” but there’s no iron-clad guarantee yet that the big-budget mobster film, which is backed by Netflix, will make it to the big screen.

Scorsese, an ardent cinephile, is believed to have asked for a commitment from Netflix that the long-gestating film – which he and star Robert De Niro are passionate about – will have a theatrical run in 2019. Sources familiar with the negotiations say Scott Stuber, Netflix’s film division chief, has assured Scorsese that the film will have a minimum two-week theatrical window. That would at least qualify it for Oscar contention.

But Netflix head of film publicity Julie Fontaine told Variety that “it’s premature to say anything at this point” regarding the company’s distribution strategy for “The Irishman.”

Even if Scorsese gets his wish for some kind of theatrical run, the film will almost certainly go out day-and-date in theatres
