Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles

20 August 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

10 Awesome Things Actors Have Done While In Costume

19 August 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Contrary to what some believe, acting isn’t always such a serious endeavor. A lot of actors are really just big kids at heart. If you give them a costume and an audience they couldn’t be happier. Because of this, sometimes an actor might find it hard to break character, and that usually makes for great entertainment for the rest of us.

Today we are going to be listing the ten most awesome things actors have done while they were still dressed like the character they were portraying on screen. Let’s get started.

 

Dishonorable Mention: Sean Young Going On The Joan Rivers Show As Catwoman

During the early ’90s nearly every actress in the world wanted the role of Selina Kyle A.K.A Catwoman in Tim Burton’s highly anticipated sequel Batman Returns. Raquel Welch, Bridget Fonda, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cher, Madonna, Ellen Barkin, and »

Out with Flynn, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

16 August 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Errol Flynn (Kevin Kline) Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning) toast in The Last of Robin Hood: "And behind this facade of strength is actually someone who is thinking twice."

We continue our conversation with directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, discussing Stanley Kubrick's Lolita connection to Errol Flynn, costume designer Orry-Kelly's role beyond the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis and Ethel Barrymore in Hollywood, and the palettes in Otto Preminger's Bonjour Tristesse, Richard Quine's Strangers When We Meet and Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest. Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon with Matt Kane, Bryan Batt and Max Casella star in The Last Of Robin Hood.

Anne-Katrin Titze: When I spoke with Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth about 20,000 Days On Earth, which is their documentary on Nick Cave, little did I expect that your film and theirs would have something in common. And that is Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. »

Ten Best: Live-action/Animation Movies

15 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, brings us a journey beyond imagination in his upcoming movie The Congress. Robin Wright (pictured above) plays a version of herself in this thought-provoking film, which merges live-action and colourful animation. To celebrate the release of The Congress today (our review is here), we take a look at some other movies which have embraced a live-action/animation mash-up.

1) Mary Poppins

Family favourite Mary Poppins delighted audiences when it first burst onto screens in 1964, and now 50 years later the magical tale continues to enchant a brand new generation of film fans. The hit adventure’s wonderful mix of live-action and fantasy animation was surely one of the elements which won it five Oscars at the 1965 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.

2) Ted

Boston car hire salesman John’s (Mark Wahlberg) friendship with his best buddy Ted is so realistic that it is sometimes »

Chain Saw Massacre and Eaten Alive Actress Dead at 64

7 August 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ actress Marilyn Burns dead at 64 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actress Marilyn Burns, the one cast member who manages to survive Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s low-budget 1974 horror cult classic, was found dead on Tuesday, August 4, 2014, at her home in the Houston area. According to her manager, "she was found unresponsive by a family member." The cause of death remains unclear. Burns (born on July 5, 1950, in Erie, Pennsylvania) was 64. The Houston-raised Marilyn Burns began appearing in films in the early ’70s. She had a bit part in Robert Altman’s Houston-filmed Brewster McCloud (1970), starring Bud Cort, Sally Kellerman, and Shelley Duvall, and was later cast in a supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Austin-shot 1974 drama Lovin’ Molly; however, Burns was ultimately replaced by Susan Sarandon, reportedly remaining in the production as a stand-in for both Sarandon and Blythe Danner. Also in 1974, Marilyn Burns landed the »

Marilyn Burns 1949-2014

6 August 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The actress Marilyn Burns, who made an indelible impression as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's final girl in 1974, has died at her home in Austin, Texas. She was 65. The timing is particularly sad, since it coincides with the 4k re-release of Tobe Hooper's infamous horror classic. As a cheerleader for the film on the festival circuit in the decades since its gruelling production, she'll be a sorely missed part of the festivities.Burns was born in Pennsylvania, but grew up in Texas and remained there her whole life. Involved in amateur dramatics as a child, her first role on screen was a bit part in Robert Altman's Brewster McCloud in 1970: it was filming locally so she made sure she was involved. She almost worked on Sidney Lumet's Lovin' Molly too, but lost her role to Susan Sarandon.As a student Burns was a member of the »
