Happy 80th Burt-day to Burt Reynolds! – Here Are His Ten Best Movies

11 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Travis Keune, and Tom Stockman

Burt Reynolds, one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite actors, turns 80 today. Happy Birthday Burt!

On February 11th, 1936, Reynolds was born in Waycross, Georgia, before his family moved to Jupiter Florida, where his father served as Chief of Police. Young Burt excelled at sports and played football at Florida State University. He became an All Star Southern Conference halfback (and was earmarked by the Baltimore Colts) before injuries sidelined his football career. He dropped out of college and headed to New York with dreams of becoming an actor. There he worked in restaurants and clubs while pulling the odd TV job or theater role. Burt was spotted in a New York City stage production of Mister Roberts and signed to a TV contract and eventually had recurring roles in such shows as Gunsmoke (1955), Riverboat (1959) and his own series, Hawk »

Remembering Oscar-Winning Gwtw Art Director Menzies

28 January 2016 3:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

William Cameron Menzies. William Cameron Menzies movies on TCM: Murderous Joan Fontaine, deadly Nazi Communists Best known as an art director/production designer, William Cameron Menzies was a jack-of-all-trades. It seems like the only things Menzies didn't do was act and tap dance in front of the camera. He designed and/or wrote, directed, produced, etc., dozens of films – titles ranged from The Thief of Bagdad to Invaders from Mars – from the late 1910s all the way to the mid-1950s. Among Menzies' most notable efforts as an art director/production designer are: Ernst Lubitsch's first Hollywood movie, the Mary Pickford star vehicle Rosita (1923). Herbert Brenon's British-set father-son drama Sorrell and Son (1927). David O. Selznick's mammoth production of Gone with the Wind, which earned Menzies an Honorary Oscar. The Sam Wood movies Our Town (1940), Kings Row (1942), and For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943). H.C. Potter's Mr. Lucky »

Bye Instant Watch: Terms of Endearment, Tom Cruise, Big Fish...

28 January 2016 12:23 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What's leaving Netflix Instant Watch?

We should probably start covering that. It seems like a boring topic but we jazz up your public service announcements. I'll close my eyes and play with the control bar and wherever I freeze the movie I'll share the image. This weekend is your last chance to watch these films for free for who knows how long. Since there are Oscar titles in the mix, perhaps you can fill some holes in your Oscar lists of Things To See or Rewatch.

Ready? In chronological order of their film year, seven films leaving Netflix on February 1st...

Terms Of Endearment (1983)

Emma: I've got some good news. I'm unofficially pregnant. I mean I haven't got the tests back but I'm never late.

Aurora: [Pause] Well... No, I don't understand."

Look how crazy young Jeff Daniels is! Shirley Maclaine is so hilarious and complicated in this movie -- that »

Get Psyched (or Psychiatric)! Rachel Bloom and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Are Back

25 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Accepting a best actress Golden Globe last month for her first-season CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom put on a display of suitably crazy, actress-y fireworks: "We sent the pilot to every other network in Hollywood! We got six rejections in one day - and we felt like crap! But we knew it was good!" She was very excited. It was almost as big a moment as Shirley MacLaine screaming for painkillers for Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment. Actually, since it was funny, it was probably better. Now it's time for you to do your part! You owe it »

Relationships are complicated: Sabrina returns to screens this month

15 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Hollywood is full of good films made by actors who didn’t get along.

Debra Winger and Shirley MacLaine despised each other while filming Terms of Endearment, Ryan Goslingand Rachel McAdams were at odds playing lovers in The Notebook and Humphrey Bogart couldn’t stand hisSabrina co-stars William Holden and Audrey Hepburn.

Sabrina (1954), directed by Billy Wilder, casts Bogart as Linus Larrabee, the older and much more responsible brother to playboy David Larrabee (Holden). David stuns his wealthy family when he makes a play for Sabrina (Hepburn), the chauffer’s daughter. It’s up to Linus to break up the inappropriate match, and in doing so he falls in love with Sabrina.

Perhaps it was his own insecurity — playing the 54-year-old love interest to the 24-year-old Hepburn — that caused Bogart to berate his co-stars, but whatever the cause of his animosity it remains off-screen, allowing viewers to enjoy this witty, »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 10-1

9 January 2016 4:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »

Golden Globes: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Awards Ceremony

8 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For a night known as Hollywood's most notorious open-bar gala, the Golden Globes ceremony remains shrouded in mystery.

Most viewers probably don't even know who presents it (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association), how many voting members it has (only about 90), or what qualifies them to pass judgment on movies and television. Yet movie fans and awards mavens continue to take the Globes seriously as a precursor to the Academy Awards, since some of the Globe honorees will indeed go on to win Oscars. With Ricky Gervais set to reprise his hosting duties this weekend, here are 25 things you need to know about the Globes.

1. Founded in October 1943 by eight foreign-market journalists, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (then called the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association) held its first awards ceremony the following spring, as a luncheon at 20th Century Fox. Instead of trophies, the winners took home scrolls.

2. The next year, the »

The Captive City | Blu-ray Review

5 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Two obscure Robert Wise titles reach Blu-ray release this month, both direct follow-ups to some of the auteur’s more iconic works. First up is 1962’s Two for the Seesaw, a romantic drama headlined by Robert Mitchum and Shirley MacLaine following the famed 1961 title West Side Story. But the decade prior would fine Wise unveiling one of his most stilted efforts, The Captive City (1952), a sort-of noir procedural which followed his sci-fi social commentary The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). Providing John Forsythe with his first starring role (a performer who would find his most famous roles decades later on television, as Blake Carrington in “Dynasty,” and of course, the famous voice in “Charlie’s Angels”), it has to be one of the most unenthusiastic renderings of organized crime ever committed to celluloid. A scrappy journalist defies the mob ruled police force and a slick Mafia boss in a tired »
