Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Twelve years ago i wasn't all that impressed with The Boston Strangler. I thought it too slick and felt that its noted multi-screen sequences were a trick gimmick. I appreciate it more now -- except for the name cast, »

Chicago – It was 38 years ago that the seminal horror film “Halloween” was released, and its impact made a star out of the heroine in the film, Jamie Lee Curtis.

From Ava DuVernay’s ’13th’ to ‘Oj: Made in America’: Four Docs That Define Black Lives Matter

3 October 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There are four new documentaries that, while timed for Oscar votes, have a much bigger target audience: The American voters. These urgently topical films peel away decades of mythology, propaganda, and misinformation to reveal why so many people in this country are not only incarcerated in our thriving prison economy, but function inside prisons of misguided perception.

It’s easy to see why the New York Film Festival picked Ava DuVernay’s “13th” as its first-ever documentary opening-night film. In the year of Ferguson and Black Lives Matter, as fearful cops continue to gun down unarmed black men in the street, this must-see film will raise consciousness about how race affects the way we regard and behave toward the people around us. “13th” is a history of how white people have treated African-Americans since 1865 — when the 13th Amendment abolished slavery — and it roused the Lincoln Center crowd to multiple standing »

Jamie Lee Curtis knows the trophies don't make the person. On Monday, the Scream Queens star and children's book author celebrated the release of her new book, This is Me in New York City, which hits stores on Sept. 20.

The book asks young readers, "What would you pack? What are the things you love best? What says, 'This is me!'?" Naturally, we had to know what Curtis would pack. »

Hugh O’Brian, Star of TV’s ‘The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,’ Dies at 91

5 September 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hugh O’Brian, who starred in the long-running series “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” died Monday. He was 91.

The actor died peacefully in his Beverly Hills home, according to a statement from Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership.

ABC Western “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” in which the exceedingly handsome, muscular O’Brian starred as the title character, ran for 221 episodes from 1955-61. At the time he was one of television’s great male sex symbols.

In 1957 he was nominated for an Emmy for best continuing performance by an actor in a dramatic series for his work on “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.”

So popular and so much a part of popular culture was O’Brian that he showed up as Earp, uncredited, in the 1959 Bob Hope Western comedy “Alias Jesse James,” as well as in the 1960 TV movie “The Secret World of Eddie Hodges”; when the actor guested on “Make Room for Daddy” in »

Jack Huston on taking the lead role in Ben-Hur

Jack Huston on taking the lead role in Ben-HurJack Huston on taking the lead role in Ben-HurChristian Aust8/15/2016 4:36:00 Pm

Meeting Jack Huston always feels a bit like travelling back in time. He has the looks, and old-fashioned manners, of a classic Hollywood star of the 1950s.

He’s polite, considerate and remembers our last interview, which took place in an old palace in Lisbon before his 2013 movie Night Train to Lisbon came out. “That was nice,” he recalls. “But it also reminds me of how quickly time is flying by.”

A lot of things have happened since then. Huston, who by that time was already known as disfigured former soldier Richard Harrow from TV’s "Boardwalk Empire", subsequently appeared in the movies Kill Your Darlings, American Hustle, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Hail, Caesar!

In April 2013 he and his girlfriend Shannan Click had a baby girl named Saga Lavinia Huston, »

The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

7 August 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady. »

Is female to male gender-swapping Hollywood’s new comedy secret weapon?

2 August 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Chris Hemsworth’s turn in Ghostbusters paved the way for Channing Tatum to score comedy points as a merman in a remake of the 1984 Tom Hanks comedy

It’s easy to forget how threatening society once found the comedy of emasculation. When Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot bowed in theaters in 1959, featuring Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as on-the-run musicians who dress up as women to escape from the mob (and get rather lost in the fun of the masquerade) the Catholic-run National Legion of Decency condemned the movie as “morally objectionable” for promoting homosexuality, lesbianism and transvestism.

Piper Laurie: The Hollywood Interview

Piper Laurie Keeps Her Chin Up

By Alex Simon

Few living actors can claim to have experienced the Hollywood machine in all its iterations more than three-time Oscar nominee Piper Laurie. Signed by Universal Pictures at 17, their youngest contract player in years, she was in the last generation that were part of the Hollywood “factory,” pushed into “cheesecake” roles that accented physical attributes, as opposed to talent. It was the beginning of a journey.

She was born Rosetta Jacobs in Detroit, Michigan, on January 22, 1932, to immigrant parents of Polish and Russian Jewish descent. When she was still five, the family sent her and her sister to a children’s sanatorium in the mountains to see if her sister’s asthma could be cured. Three years later after being reunited with her family she decided she wanted to become an actress and studied with Benno and Betomi Schneider for several years »

'UnREAL' Season 2: TV Review

3 June 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In perhaps the most famous moment of the crackling classic Sweet Smell of Success, famous newspaper columnist J.J. Hunsecker (Burt Lancaster) briefly sees through press agent Sidney Falco's (Tony Curtis) fast-talking exterior and pauses. "I'd hate to take a bite out of you," reflects Hunsecker. "You're a cookie full of arsenic." Returning for its second season on Monday, June 6, Lifetime's UnREAL is an updated version of that idiom, a colorful macaron full of strychnine, perhaps? UnREAL launched last summer and was reductively described as a satirical look behind the scenes of a Bachelor-style TV dating show.

The Nice Guys review: Crowe and Gosling are abysmal PIs in a high hit-rate action comedy

15 May 2016 4:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Shane Black sets a pair of sound-hearted good-bad guys off on the trail of a missing porn star in a crime caper that’s touched by Anderson, Altman and Hiaasen

Before our emotionally literate, twenty-first century world invented the idea of the “bromance”, we had the buddy comedy: films like California Split, Freebie And The Bean, not to mention Roger Moore and Tony Curtis in The Persuaders on television. Writer-director Shane Black’s horribly enjoyable action comedy The Nice Guys is an jauntily arch return to this tradition, the story of two dishevelled and incompetent private detectives in 1970s Los Angeles — played by Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling — who have been expensively tasked with solving the mystery surrounding the death of a missing porn actress, and what other kind of fascinatingly damaged female character can there be? It’s a comedy hardboiled noir, a plastic Black Dahlia with something of Pt Anderson’s Boogie Nights, »

James Bond Director Guy Hamilton Dies at 93

21 April 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Guy Hamilton, the director of four James Bond films, has died on the Mediterranean island of Majorca at the age of 93. Hamilton was at the helm of iconic 007 movies “Goldfinger” in 1964 and “Diamonds are Forever” in 1971, both starring Sean Connery, as well as 1973’s “Live and Let Die” and 1974’s “The Man with the Golden Gun,” both with Roger Moore as Bond.

In a statement, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson told Variety: “We mourn the loss of our dear friend Guy Hamilton who firmly distilled the Bond formula in his much celebrated direction of ‘Goldfinger’ and continued to entertain audiences with ‘Diamonds Are Forever,’ ‘Live and Let Die’ and ‘The Man with the Golden Gun.’ We celebrate his enormous contribution to the Bond films.”

Hamilton’s career started when he was 17 in the accounts department of a film studio in Nice, France, but he soon gravitated to a lowly production role. »

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »
