Flickering Myth TV exclusive preview of Road

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK last week, we’ve got an exclusive preview of Road, a documentary narrated by Liam Neeson, which tells the a heartbreaking and adrenaline-fuelled tale of a family who have dominated road racing for over thirty years. Check it out below…

Motorcycle road racing is a sport in which men compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour on closed country roads – roads that on any other day service cars, buses, tractors – roads that are lined with trees, telegraph posts and stone walls, unforgiving obstacles when struck by the human body.

It is a sport that has claimed many lives over the years – and continues to do so to this day. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few places in the world where the sport still survives.

Robert and Joey Dunlop are quiet men from a rural village in Northern Ireland, »

Parents & Frequent Moviegoers Are Desensitized To Violence, Sex In Film; Likely So Is MPAA Ratings Board: Study

22 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After surveying 1,000 parents exposed to multiple clips of on-screen sex and violence in movies, a study found that parents become increasingly desensitized to acts of sex and violence with repeated viewing which appears to lead to an increasing acceptance to both. The result is that these parents are less likely to shield their kids from movies that contain sex and violence. In addition, the authors note that people who rate movies for the MPAA (themselves parents) could also be subject to the same desensitization “and thus more likely to be lenient when it comes to evaluating the appropriateness of such content for children.” Those behind the study said this effect could help to explain the “ratings creep” that has allowed more violence into films aimed at our youth.

The MPAA has long acknowledged that its standards have shifted over time but has traditionally attributed this to the changing standards of parents. »

Kidman and Firth a mismatch

19 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman were terrific as a long-married couple who overcame adversity in The Railway Man but Australian audiences aren.t buying their latest on-screen pairing.

Before I Go to Sleep casts Kidman as a 40-year-old woman who wakes up every day with a blank memory. Firth is her husband who tells her been married for 14 years and Mark Strong is her neuro-psychologist who encourages her to keep a daily video diary so she can help rebuild her life.

The thriller directed by Rowan Joffe, adapted from S. J. Watson.s best-selling novel, may not have sent audiences to sleep but relatively few bothered to turn up as the film fetched $418,000 on a very wide 194 screens.

Nationwide takings dropped by 16% to $9.7 million as none of the other newcomers much enthused cinemagoers, according to Rentrak.s weekend estimates. Distributors say the market is soft and especially shallow below the top three titles. »

Ciff Day 4: ‘The Young Kieslowski’ and ‘In Order of Disappearance’

18 October 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You can’t win ‘em all. Sometimes the challenge with a film festival, as opposed to say a music festival, is that not everything you see will be good. Sometimes you may decide it just wasn’t for you, and sometimes you wonder why they even decided to choose that film in the first place.

The Young Kieslowski was this year’s dud. It broke the rule I held that there are no romantic leads named “Brian”, and if there are fictional Brians they end up writing term papers while everyone else gets paired off with Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheady. And yet it doesn’t help that Brian Kieslowski is remarkably repellent.

Hardly an edgy sex comedy on par with any college-aged romp you can imagine from the last 10 years, and trying desperately to be a mix of Ferris Bueller, Juno and maybe a dash of 500 Days of Summer, »

Brad Pitt's 5 Funniest Accents

17 October 2014 10:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Some guys get away with never branching out from their own regional accent (Matthew McConaughey and Liam Neeson, we mean you).  Others never seem to do their own accent (Christian Bale).

With Fury hitting theaters, it's time to take stock in his five best accents.  Fury (2014) We're guessing Inglorius Basterds was good preparation for this role.

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

Wild & Crazy: The Most Bizarre Star Wars Prequel Rumors

17 October 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production (and only a few weeks from wrapping), rumors have been flying fast and furious over the last few months.  This has caused a flurry of finger-pointing, naysaying, and even hostility between fans over some of the claims...but this is nothing new.  The Prequel trilogy were surrounded by rumors as well, so today, I thought it’d be fun to take a trip down memory lane to remember some of the craziest reports that had us all buzzing.

Some of these are just bizarre, and many of the original sites reporting on these things are no longer in action, but some of you life-long fans, like me, will likely remembering hearing about these.  I’ve purposefully stayed away from Super Shadow reports (though some of these may have been influenced by him), because he was a known fraud and I wanted to »

7 Reasons Why Liam Neeson Is Cooler Than You Are (Walking Among Tombstones Is Just One)

17 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | | See recent Filmonic news »

Liam Neeson is one of those actors who is just so universally cool, pretty much everyone and their grandmother loves him. In fact, I’d be very worried if someone didn’t like Neeson, and I’d keep that person away from all pets and small children. Neeson is equal parts affable and badass, and here’s just seven […]

‘The View's’ Rosie O'Donnell Wants Police to Search John Grisham's Computer for Child Porn

Hollywood Film Festival Shines a Light on Topical Issues

16 October 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite its glamorous name and location, the Hollywood Film Festival has struggled to find its identity since its founding in 1997. But this year’s edition (Oct. 16-19) is getting a radical overhaul and rebranding from new owner Jon Fitzgerald and his philanthropic company CineCause.

“What makes the new Hollywood Film Festival unique is that we’re really emphasizing socially conscious films — both documentary and narrative — and then packaging them with educational presentations where we have special guests doing keynotes,” says Fitzgerald, last year’s Hff director who also co-founded Slamdance in 1995 and directed the AFI, Santa Barbara, Abu Dhabi and Topanga fests.

The fest, based at the ArcLight Hollywood and branded as Entertainment for Change, will screen some 60 movies. And while Fitzgerald’s goal is to avoid “the usual glitz and glamor associated with film festivals,” there’s no end of socially conscious stars who are directly involved in many of the featured films. »

Tom Cruise Nabs Top Spot on Home Video Sales Charts With ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

15 October 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The latest Tom Cruise action film, “Edge of Tomorrow,” topped the national home video sales charts the week ending Oct. 12, bumping the prior week’s top seller, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” from Paramount Pictures, to No. 2.

10 Greatest Crime Movies Of The 2000s

15 October 2014 2:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

With the recent releases of A Walk Among The Tombstones and The Equalizer, the crime film is as present as ever in our cinemas. Tombstones is a brutal, gritty mystery, seemingly tailor made for Liam Neeson’s brand of tough, haunted heroism. Those who enjoy a taut, page-turning thriller novel will love it (which is appropriate, considering it is based on a series of books by Lawrence Block). The Equalizer satisfies as a more heightened, bombastic crime story, featuring Denzel Washington excelling as an ingeniously badass defender of the downtrodden who takes on the Russian Mob pretty much single-handedly. These films seemingly exist at opposite ends of the spectrum, but they show just how much room for manoeuvre there is in the crime genre, with potential for many varied types of story to be told.

Many observers and fans of the genre would say that the 1970’s were »

Arrow Producers Offered Liam Neeson Ra's al Ghul Role

10 October 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

When it was revealed that Ra's al Ghul will be the main villain in the third season of "Arrow" TV series, MTV reached out to Liam Neeson to find out if he had any interest in reprising the role he played in Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins." "I would [do it] in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah," he replied. Neeson's willingness to play Ra's al Ghul quickly reached CW president Mark Pedowitz, who just revealed that he was "thrilled" to hear that there was a chance to get the actor. "We never thought he would," said Pedowitz. "We quickly went to him, just on the off-chance that he had the time to do it." In the end, Neeson was too busy or maybe unwilling and the role went to Matthew Nable (Killer Elite, Riddick). »
