2 July 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all from time to time enjoy a comfortable stay when vacationing anywhere in the world. So why should movie characters not appreciate a great place to stay as well? Interestingly, big screen hotels and motels almost play an important part as an extra movie character in addition to serving as a backdrop to the proceedings.

In Enjoy Your Stay: The Top 10 Movies About Hotels/Motels let’s look at some special selections where hotels and motels in film are featured and play a primary role in plot and theme. Cinematic room service has never been so accommodating.

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | 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, »

Todd McCarthy on Philip Seymour Hoffman: 'Never a False or Self-Conscious Note'

5 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Philip Seymour Hoffman was a consummate character actor whose talent was so genuine and deep that nothing could prevent him from becoming a complete performer, which sometimes included being a leading man and star as well. Hollywood used to save a little room at the top for guys like him, actors not typically good-looking, sometimes a bit paunchy, with faces a bit mashed or irregular but marked by personality and character. If you look through the list of actor Oscar winners from the 1930s-40s, the names of such men pop up with some regularity: Wallace Beery, Paul Muni, Charles

Buster Keaton Month - Three Ages and Sherlock Jr.

13 January 2014 1:24 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Graham continues our Buster Keaton month with reviews of Three Ages and Sherlock Jr....

The British Film Institute’s decision to pair Three Ages (1923) and Sherlock Jr. (1924) proved a wise one, as these two films serve as a great introduction to Buster Keaton. By 1923, Keaton was already famous for his short films, but Third Ages was the first feature film he directed, wrote and starred in. Sherlock Jr., produced a year later, cemented his reputation as a talented film-maker and was the first in a string of critically acclaimed and highly popular films, many of which are currently being shown as part of the BFI’s Keaton season.

Another added pleasure to this screening was the use of live music. An improvisational piano player performed throughout the film, similar to how silent films were originally watched. This created an authentic and enjoyable experience.

Three Ages, 1923.
