Five life lessons we learned from Garry MarshallFive life lessons we learned from Garry MarshallAdriana Floridia7/20/2016 10:07:00 Am

Last night, Hollywood lost one of its most prolific filmmakers, Garry Marshall, who passed away at the age of eighty-one.

Marshall was known for his sentimental films that focused on love and friendship in a magical and optimistic way that was unique to his sensibilities. While he had a huge impact on television, as the creator of “Happy Days” and all of its spin-offs, he also offered the film world some of our best romantic comedies and stories of platonic love, from Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, to Beaches and Raising Helen.

Marshall’s joy for life was evident through his storytelling, which had quite the impact on us growing up, and up until this day. At the age of eighty, Marshall was still working hard behind the camera, as »

Who Should Receive Honorary Oscars Next?

19 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're about one month away from the announcement of this year's Honorary Oscar recipients. They're usuallly announced at the end of August for a November Governor's Awards ceremony. This year's ceremony will be on November 12th. Last year rumors circled that it was Doris Day's turn but that didn't turn out to be accurate. For the past two years, The Film Experience has tried to make up for the dearth of movie site reporting about the Oscar Honorary careers (beyond the sharing of press releases / YouTube videos of their speeches) with mini-retrospectives so we're always hoping they'll choose well to give us wonderful careers to discuss right here. 

Let's reprint a list of worthies we shared a year or so ago, with a few adjustments, in case any of the elites in the Academy are undecided about who to put forth or get behind for these coveted honors.

On this day in pop culture history: the first ‘X-Men’ movie opened in theaters

14 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

16 years ago today was (arguably) the beginning of the modern superhero movie era. Even if you give that distinction to Spider-Man or Iron Man, it’s undeniable that the first X-Men movie paved the way for the proliferation of caped heroes in Hollywood today. In 2000, the only other superhero movies released were negatively received comedies The Specials and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV, and M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable — a superhero movie in a time before they could be baldfaced superhero movies. Now, everyone wants in on the superhero genre, which is now producing the buzziest and most lucrative blockbusters of 2016. The ninth and most recent X-Men movie, Apocalypse, ultimately delivered disappointing numbers in the ever-more-crowded superhero line-up, but that didn’t stop Fox from ordering a pilot for what looks to be a series based in the X-Men world.

Book Review – The Fireman by Joe Hill

24 June 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Michelle Herbert reviews The Fireman by Joe Hill…

This is Joe Hill’s take on an end of the world scenario, in this case, the apocalypse doesn’t come with a bang, rather the whole world will burn. Slowly a virus commonly known as Dragonscale starts infecting people first they get the scale on their bodies and then later the infected spontaneously combust. At the start of the novel, there is a lot of conjecture as to what is causing Dragonscale and how it is being passed from one host to another, at this stage there are no real facts people know that once you start showing signs of Dragonscale it is only a matter of time before you die.

How Lin-Manuel Miranda Rode His ‘Hamilton’ Star from Broadway to Hollywood

12 June 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The last time Lin-Manuel Miranda attended the Tony Awards, he was nervous because “In the Heights” needed to win in order to lure audiences. It won best new musical.

That’s not a problem for his ticket-scalpers’ delight, “Hamilton,” his second Broadway musical. He stars in the production, wrote the book, music, and lyrics, and it scored a record-breaking 16 nominations. It swept the Tonys Sunday night with 11 awards including best new musical, and could eventually earn over $1 billion worldwide, according to The New York Times.

“Hamilton” also won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and a Grammy Award for best musical theater album. Because Miranda won an Emmy for writing Neil Patrick Harris’s closing rap at the 2014 Tonys, all he needs is an Oscar to become a member of the Egot club.

That’s not an impossibility, as Miranda’s moving his star to Hollywood—more specifically, Disney. J.J. Abrams »

Best Kids' Movies to Screen Outdoors

Watching movies outside gives you more than a breath of fresh air -- the experience combines all the best aspects of camping, picnicking, and family movie night into one unforgettable summertime experience. When it comes to the best kids' movies to screen outdoors, there are some seemingly made to be watched under the stars.

Get your blankets, s'mores, popcorn, and (for the grownups) a glass of wine -- and get comfortable.

'Mary Poppins' (1964)

Disney's 1964 classic musical about the stern yet softhearted British nanny who brings the Banks family together again never goes out of style. Julie Andrews is unforgettable as Mary, and Dick Van Dyke is sweet and hilarious as Bert. "Mary Poppins" is a sing-a-long movie perfect for children of all ages -- guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. Who can forget that amazing animated sequence when Mary and Bert take the children into the English countryside? Just »

Exclusive Interview: Legendary director Garry Marshall on Mother’s Day, holiday films and memories of Robin Williams

6 June 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his new film Mother’s Day set for release in the UK this Friday (June 10th), Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis sat down (well, on the phone at least) to chat with legendary director Garry Marshall (Overboard, Pretty Woman) to discuss his latest effort, some of his most famous projects, and working with the late Robin Williams.

Mother’s Day marks the third “holiday” themed film that Marshall has made in recent years after the success of 2010’s Valentine’s Day, which grossed over $216 million worldwide, and its follow-up New Year’s Eve, which made $142 million. But while Mother’s Day marks something of a trilogy, Marshall was looking more for a story about mothers than another holiday one:

“I wanted to do something about mothers. I found that a very interesting subject – how to be a parent today, in this case and how your relationships go on. »

From Brie Larson's Captain Marvel rumours to Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins, what was your favourite movie news this week?

3 June 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This week in movie news, we got some new casting rumours and confirmations.

 

We've been hearing buzz about an impending Captain Marvel movie for some time now, and this week Brie Larson's name came out as the front-runner for the role. Captain Marvel, otherwise known as Carol Danvers, is expected to first appear in Avengers: Infinity War--Part One before starring in her own solo film. Going by Larson's track record, having just won the Best Actress Oscar for her brilliant performance in Room, as well as roles in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, 21 Jump Street and Trainwreck, she would hands down make the perfect Captain Marvel.

We already knew that Emily Blunt would succeed Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins, but the news and title of the film has officially been confirmed. Blunt will star alongside "Hamilton" Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda inMary Poppins Returns, set for release in 2018.
