The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

Richardson & Fiennes Fight To Save Historic London Cinema

23 December 2010 4:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Joely Richardson and Ralph Fiennes are fighting plans to demolish a 1930s Art Deco cinema site in the U.K. capital.

The screen stars, along with Dougray Scott and David Threlfall, are backing the Save Our Skyline campaign, opposing a bid to erect a supermarket and an apartment block on the site of the old theatre in Hammersmith, west London.

Hundreds of locals are supporting the scheme, and the Nip/Tuck actress is urging officials to save "one of London's hidden gems".

She adds, "I grew up around this area and part of my lifeline was escaping to the local cinema, which played a big part in my decision to become an actress."

Fiennes is calling for the cinema to be preserved for future generations, while Threlfall has criticised the "greed of developers" wanting to build another "unnecessary supermarket". »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Nip-Tuck The Complete Series Review And Giveaway

18 November 2010 9:59 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

While not truly a graphic or violent show (comparatively speaking), Nip/Tuck is nevertheless a show that not only pushed boundaries, but helped demonstrate the effectiveness of the broader narrative possibilities available to cable network television. The six seasons of the show delivered an outstanding variety of situations, both by way of the clients, and the doctors, and delved into the entire spectrum of the plastic surgery game.

The final season may have gone a little haywire at times, but it still had an ability to pull the pieces together, and overall the show stands above most. While many may be put off by the entire theory of exploring those seeking a bit more beauty by going under the knife, and the doctors who aid their effort, the show never failed to put its own subject matter on the back burner. Like any good show, the description only provides an »

[TV] Nip/Tuck: The Complete Series

9 November 2010 9:16 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Whenever a network manages to take a series of soap opera quality and turn it into a cultural sensation, you have to take the time to step back and figure out what’s separating it from the shows relegated to early and midday time slots that have similar themes of torrid love affairs, murder, and irrational behavior on the part of every character featured within. What gives Nip/Tuck its little crowbar of separation from the average soap opera is the firm focus on character development, even if it comes from unexpectedly random emotional outbursts that place protagonists at odds with one another unexpectedly? If you were a fan of the show in its original run or are looking to get started on a new series, the recently released Nip/Tuck: The Complete Series on DVD represents four solid seasons of great dramatic television capped with two lesser seasons, leaving »

Swedish Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director attacks Hollywood remake

9 November 2010 2:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Niels Arden Oplev says that Noomi Rapace, star of his original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, should not be overlooked as Stieg Larsson's heroine hacker Lisbeth Salander

The director of the original Swedish adaptation of the bestselling novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has laid into the forthcoming Hollywood remake.

Niels Arden Oplev, who filmed the first film in the trilogy based on Stieg Larsson's hugely successful Millennium series, said he was angry that his lead actor, Noomi Rapace, faced being overlooked as the true face of the novels' protagonist, hacker Lisbeth Salander. Oplev also hinted that the Hollywood version, set to be directed by David Fincher, would be unlikely to hold a candle to his own film, comparing the still-in-production feature to 1993's poorly received The Assassin, a Us remake of Luc Besson's French film La Femme Nikita from three years earlier.

November DVD Playhouse

DVD Playhouse—November 2010

By Allen Gardner

Paths Of Glory (Criterion) Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 antiwar classic put him on the map as a major filmmaker. Kirk Douglas stars in a true story about a French officer in Ww I who locks horns with the military’s top brass after his men are court-martialed for failing to carry out an obvious suicide mission. A perfect film, across the board, with fine support from George Macready as one of the most despicable martinet’s ever captured on film, Ralph Meeker, and Adolphe Menjou, all oily charm as a conniving General. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Audio commentary by critic Gary Giddins; Excerpt from 1966 audio interview with Kubrick; 1979 interview with Douglas; New interviews with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and producer James B. Harris; French television documentary on real-life case which inspired the film; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

DVD Review: ‘Nip/Tuck: The Complete Series’ Captures Once-Promising Show

2 November 2010 2:28 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Having started writing about television and DVD right around the time that “Nip/Tuck” premiered on FX and always having lovely contacts at both the network and Warner Brothers, who released the DVDs for the series, I have possibly written about the adventures of Drs. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) and Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) more than any other program. And so I greet the “Complete Series” box set, recently released on DVD, with a tinge of sadness as I say goodbye to a program with definite highlights that somehow never quite lived up to its potential.

DVD Rating: 3.0/5.0

The first two seasons of “Nip/Tuck” (it ran for six seasons and produced exactly 100 episodes) were downright fantastic. Creator Ryan Murphy (who completely creatively discarded this show in the last few years, probably to focus on “Glee” and “Eat Pray Love”) tapped into a great concept by presenting people obsessed »

Emmerich's 'Anonymous' Finds Composers

31 October 2010 11:50 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Roland Emmerich is apparently prepping some kind of super secret alien invasion movie in the same vein as Cloverfield, but before that we'll see the release of his film Anonymous on September 23, 2011.

Anonymous uses the argument it was the 17th Earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere (Rhys Ifans), that actually wrote Shakespeare's plays and is described as something of a political thriller set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I (Vanessa Redgrave), and the Essex Rebellion against her.

The film features Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewlis, Xavier Dolan, Joely Richardson, Jamie Campbell-Bower, Derek Jacobi, Rafe Spall and Rhys Ifans, the latter of which plays de Vere and it's said it was Ifans's performance in Anonymous that brought him to the attention of Columbia suits and earned him the role as the lead villain, The Lizard, in Marc Webb's upcoming Untitled Spider-Man Reboot.

The Top 10 Scariest Horror Films from the last 20 years

23 October 2010 3:51 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

HollywoodNews.com: The goal of this list is pretty simple. I’m sure we’re all sick and tired of seeing countless ’scariest movies of all time’ lists every Halloween that basically include some combination of the same several movies. Among the movies that will not be on this list: “Psycho,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” “The Exorcist,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “Jaws,” “Halloween,” “Alien,” and “The Shining.” Nothing against those films, but I’d imagine that any film nerd who cares enough to read a list of great horror films has probably already seen them. By limiting the list to the last twenty years, we automatically discount most of the staples that usually fill up such ‘best of’ lists for Halloween. Oh, and another thing, this is purely about theatrical movies that actually scared me, regardless of how high they rank in the quality totem pole. “The Silence of the Lambs, »

Sam Raimis Spirits and Plants in Dibbuk Box and The Day of the Triffids

22 October 2010 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert's Ghost House Pictures seems to have a bit of a gap in it's upcoming slate but it appears that the previously talked about 2012 release of 'Dibbuk Box' has officially got itself a new director in the form of Danish writer/helmer Ole Bornedal ('Vikaren' Aka 'The Substitute'). The 'based on 'apparent' true events' tale of a haunted wine cabinet was picked up by Ghost House about 6 years ago now so it's nice to see some progress at last. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White penned the script which was acquired in March. The new project is based on an article from the Los Angeles Times by Leslie Gornstein called 'Jinx in a Box,' about an antique wooden box sold on eBay (in February 2004) that contained an evil spirit and was brought to America by a Holocaust survivor after WWII. »

First Look: Mara and Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

12 October 2010 10:07 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The first photos from the Stockholm set of David Fincher's currently filming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have popped up revealing A Social Network star Rooney Mara in character as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig as muckraking journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Mara looks about right to me. Exclusive Update: Sony officially confirms Fincher's casting of Joely Richardson as Anita Vanger, Steven Berkhoff as Frode and David Dencik as young Detective Morell. Meanwhile, the Nyt reports that the late Stieg Larsson's brother Joakim confirms the existence of another Millennium novel that he was writing before he died; it's the fifth, not the fourth in the series.

First Look at Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

11 October 2010 1:12 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This weekend, we got a look at Rooney Mara (The Social Network) as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Now, the Daily Mail has landed the first look at Daniel Craig as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist.  Unlike Mara, who has undergone a bit of transformation to play the raven-haired, piercing-happy Salander, Craig looks a lot like Craig.

Still, if you’re excited for this flick, then hit the jump and check out the images.  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, and David Dencik.  It’s set to open on December 21, 2011.

Set Photos from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; More Cast Added

11 October 2010 5:34 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The late Swedish author Stieg Larsson died before the first novel of his Millennium trilogy of thrillers, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, was published. The series took off worldwide, and has already been adapted into movies in Larsson's native Sweden, the last of which, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest will open in limited release in the U.S. on October 29. Not to be outdone by the Swedish, Hollywood has elected director David Fincher to create the American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which is currently shooting in Stockholm, Sweden. The movie concerns a journalist (Daniel Craig) and a computer hacker (Rooney Mara) who team up to solve the 40-year-old disappearance of a woman.

The Daily Mail has released set photos from the production, which show Craig shooting one of the opening scenes of the novel on the steps of a Swedish courthouse. ComingSoon has »
