The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

14 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Lion King'

11 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

From the now-iconic opening note of that incredible beginning sequence, viewers of The Lion King knew they were in for a very special treat: A Disney animated movie that — thanks to its compelling story about the circle of life, an all-star voice cast that included Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, and James Earl Jones, and that music — would appeal to adults just as much as the kids that begged their parents to take them to theaters.

The Lion King followed Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin in an era that came to be known as the Disney Renaissance. »

Star Wars: 10 things you never knew about the galaxy far, far away

8 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Filming is about to commence on Star Wars: Episode VII, Jj Abrams's hotly-anticipated sequel that picks up the story 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

With almost 40 years of history - encompassing films, TV, comic books, video games and novels - there's a wealth of interesting facts and information about the vast universe hatched by George Lucas.

Here are ten fast facts we've discovered from a galaxy far, far away…

1. Inspired by the swashbuckling Flash Gordon adventures that began in the '30s, a young George Lucas initially wanted to bring that serial to the big screen, but found the rights to the character difficult to untangle. From there he began to fashion his own space epic - a project that would eventually become the Star Wars we know and love.

However, things could have been a lot different as Lucas's first draft script was »

Listen To Darth Vader's Classic Dialogue As Read By Winnie The Pooh

7 April 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What a difference a voice makes. James Earl Jones lent his signature baritone to George Lucas. evil creation, Darth Vader, and one of cinema.s most iconic villains was born. But what if Lord Vader were voiced, instead, by Jim Cummings, the voice actor best known for lending his pipes to the gentle, hungry Winnie the Pooh. Well, Star Wars would have sounded a lot like the above clip. The clip has been around for a while, but is so amusing, we wanted to share in case you hadn.t caught it yet. Cummings is appearing at Connecticon 2013, reading actual dialogue from the Star Wars trilogy (with a few Pooh improvisations). YouTube user Ian James shared the above footage. It.s the best version we could find, with the strongest audio of Cummings. terrific line reading. Listen to the crowd go nuts at the 35-seocnd mark, when Cummings says, "Honey. »

John Ostrander: Whore To Culture And Other Working Relationships

6 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m over at Facebook a fair amount. I use it not just for friends and family, people I actually know, but also as a way to keep in touch with fans which I think is important. I try to give them a good personal experience with me because I value them; their support enables me to make a living as a writer. Some publishers have an interest in hiring me because they know I have my own fanbase.

So I post things and answer questions or notes – sort of like at a Con – and it’s nice. Most of the fans are very respectful; sometimes, maybe a little too respectful. There have been those who refer to me as “master”. I appreciate it as a token of respect but, to be honest, I’m uncomfortable with it. To my mind, I’m just a working guy and my work happens to be writing. »

Robin Williams Has 90 Minutes To Live In The Angriest Man In Brooklyn Trailer

4 April 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite a juicy role as Dwight D. Eisenhower in Lee DanielsThe Butler last summer, Robin Williams has been largely absent from the spotlight for a few years. That’s all about to change though with his new film Boulevard hitting Tribeca this month and the first trailer for another Williams project, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, arriving on the web today.

Williams stars as Henry Altmann, the titular character, who is wrongfully told by a doctor (Mila Kunis) that he’s managed to frustrate through constant yelling and needling that he has a brain aneurysm that will kill him within an hour and a half. Shocked out of the bitterness that has consumed him for much of his adult life, Henry begins a race against time through New York City to make amends with all the loved ones he has driven away, including his brother, wife and estranged son. »

Library of Congress' Packard Campus: Rare Double Screening of Box Office Cataclysm

Screwball comedy movies, rare screenings of epic box office disaster: Library of Congress’ Packard Theater in April 2014 (photo: Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in ‘The Awful Truth’) In April 2014, the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus Theater in Culpeper, Virginia, will celebrate Hollywood screwball comedy movies, from the Marx Brothers’ antics to Peter Bogdanovich’s early ’70s homage What’s Up, Doc?, a box office blockbuster starring Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal. Additionally, the Packard Theater will present a couple of rarities, including an epoch-making box office disaster that led to the demise of a major studio. Among Packard’s April 2014 screwball comedies are the following: Leo McCarey’s Duck Soup (Saturday, April 5) — actually more zany, wacky, and totally insane than merely "screwball" — in which Groucho Marx stars as the recently (un)elected dictator of Freedonia, abetted by siblings Harpo Marx and Chico Marx, in addition to Groucho’s perennial foil, »

Al Pacino Retrospective - Looking for Richard

18 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb continues our Al Pacino Retrospective with Looking for Richard...

The Al Pacino season at the BFI has showcased his best work, but it can be difficult to get a sense of what Pacino is like when viewed through the fictional lens of characters like Michael Corleone and Frank Serpico. Looking for Richard is Pacino’s directorial debut, digging deeper into American attitudes towards Shakespeare – specifically the influential historical drama Richard III. This is an insight into Pacino’s acting and his love for the stage. Informative, insightful and playful, Looking for Richard is a theatrical treat for film fans.

Led primarily by Pacino himself and his co-writer Frederic Kimball, they banter and argue about the text and purpose of the documentary. While Pacino is building and amassing footage to create a film to educate and illuminate a centuries old text, Fred is keen to prove how actors understand Shakespeare, »

Oscars predictions killed the event's buzz before it even began

28 February 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Everyone's got an opinion when it comes to the Oscars, unfortunately most people's are negative, censored or ridiculous

Oscars predictions are to Los Angeles what political gossip is to Washington DC, and during the week of the Oscars it's pretty much impossible to walk down the street, let alone open a newspaper, without somebody giving you their tuppence on the matter. As with arseholes and opinions, everyone's got their own prediction but in the final days before the ceremony one verdict was becoming increasingly loud: Gravity will beat 12 Years a Slave to Best Picture. Why? Because a true story about slavery is, well, kind of a downer.

"For many, 12 Years a Slave is too hard to watch," declared a front page headline in the La Times above a story by the paper's film critic, Betsy Sharkey, suggesting audiences have shied away from the movie. But a brief glance at the »

Oscars by the Numbers: 33 Fascinating Academy Awards Statistics

28 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Unless you're prediction-loving, number-crunching wizard Nate Silver, you probably find statistics pretty boring. But stats concerning the Academy Awards have always been fascinating, mostly because the Oscars are just plain weird, and riddled with anomalies.

The ceremony got its start in the late 1920s, when movies were just making their transition into sound, and early nominees and categories reflected the sheer chaos of those halcyon days of what would eventually become Hollywood's golden age. (Though, of course, any film aficionado worth his/her salt would have a strong opinion about the exact dates that that age entailed.)

As the Oscars tradition continued, the awards became a bit more traditional themselves, settling into a predictable pattern of narratives that have stayed relatively consistent to this day. But there are always idiosyncrasies hiding in the woodwork, and the Academy Awards have them in spades. Here, we've collected some of the most distinctive »

Star Wars Episode VII: casting Adam Driver as a villain is one very odd move

27 February 2014 7:04 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With the big heroes in their 50s, 60s and 70s, the usually reliable Jj Abrams is plunging the Girls star into a fearsome spotlight

Girls star Adam Driver set to play Star Wars villain, reports say

If there is one area where Jj Abrams usually gets it right, it is casting. He was on the money when he picked the relatively untried Chris Pine to play the new Captain Kirk in 2009's rebooted Star Trek. He nailed it when he saw the potential of Phillip Seymour Hoffman to portray one of the most sinister villains in recent Hollywood history in 2006's unexpectedly good Mission: Impossible III. And he may yet have come up trumps with the casting of Girls' Adam Driver as a Darth Vader-like nasty in the mega-hyped upcoming Star Wars revival: Episode VII. Even so, from what we think we know about the first Disney-produced film in the long-running space saga, »
