‘The Vietnam War’ Review: Ken Burns’ Exhaustive Conflict Biography Shows How to Learn from History’s Errors

17 September 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While spending a career highlighting some of U.S. history’s most notable figures — Jackie Robinson, the Roosevelts, Jack JohnsonKen Burns has also undercut the idea of the “ordinary American.” Not only finding worthy stories in the lives of titanic men and women who still loom large over the public consciousness, he’s been able to elevate lesser-known individuals from the respective histories of baseball, the Civil War, jazz, and more, showing that those eras and institutions were also shaped by people less often regarded as heroes.

The great equalization of the past is on display once again in Burns’ and co-director Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War,” a mammoth, 18-hour history told through and by members from both sides of the ill-fated conflict. Journalists and soldiers, government officials and Gold Star families all add to an understanding of Vietnam, presented without varnish or favoritism. A tale for modern audiences, »

Blu-ray Review – E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

12 September 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 1982.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote, Henry Thomas, Robert MacNaughton, and Drew Barrymore.

Synopsis:

Anniversaries divisible by five remain popular with the Hollywood studios’ home theater divisions, so of course E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial needed (not really) that treatment for its 35th anniversary. If you have the Blu-ray issued five years ago, you can skip this one, but it’s a worthwhile upgrade if you only own the 2002 two-disc DVD edition. The 1.5-hour laserdisc documentary remains missing, but a chunk of its material was repurposed for the bonus features found here.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial may feel hokey to modern audiences, but it’s one of many movies directed by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas that had a huge impact on my childhood and on my creative sensibilities. As such, I’m always happy to give it another spin, and »

Fall TV Preview: The 25 Most Anticipated New Shows of 2017

5 September 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The idea of a “fall TV season” feels particularly antiquated in 2017, as two of the year’s buzziest series (“Game of Thrones” and “Twin Peaks”) have already wrapped for the year. Fall may even be a bit of an afterthought now compared to spring, as networks aim to catch Emmy voters with prestige TV premieres when campaign season gets underway.

And yet, there’s nearly 70 years of tradition with the fall TV season. It’s when Nielsen still resets the calendar for the new TV year; when blue chip advertisers like the automotive sector roll out their own new wares; football season returns (don’t discount that huge impact on TV schedules); and the weather gets chilly, which conceivably means more viewers watching TV indoors.

This year, they’ll find a lot of familiar titles on broadcast TV, including the return of NBC’s “Will & Grace”; a prequel to “The Big Bang Theory, »

Remembering Legend of Billie Jean: The First Great Female Superhero Movie

4 July 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sure. Billie Jean is not a superhero in the spandex, cape, superpowers sense. And she is not based on a pre-existing comic book character. But she is a strong female warrior, who is truly a hero in her own right. And the movie The Legend of Billie Jean serves as the perfect template for what has come since in the realm of female superhero movies, none-of-them, dare we even say Wonder Woman, quite able to live up to the excitement and adventure on display here in all its raw, 80s form. Even so, it often gets overlooked whenever the subject of female led movies comes up, specifically those of the superhero kind. It barely ever registers a blip. Though it had a familiar superhero in the lead by way of Helen Slater, who played Supergirl just one year before.

It's almost like the writers of The Legend of Billie Jean, »

From VHS to VOD #2

24 March 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

So, with »

Poster and trailer for 1 Mile to You starring Billy Crudup, Graham Rogers and Liana Liberato

22 February 2017 11:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gravitas Ventures has released a poster and trailer Leif Tilden’s upcoming romantic drama 1 Mile to You. Based on Jeremy Jackson’s novel Life at These Speeds, the film stars Billy Crudup, Graham Rogers, Liana Liberato, Stefanie Scott, Melanie Lynskey, Peter Coyote, and Tim Roth; take a look below…

When a teenager (Graham Rogers, “Quantico”) loses his once-in-a-lifetime girlfriend (Stefanie Scott, “Jem and the Holograms”) in a tragic accident, he finds that running keeps him connected to her during his ‘runner’s high’ moments. Chasing her memory drives him to run faster, and to win for his new coach (Billy Crudup, “20th Century Women”). Before long, however, his newfound notoriety attracts the attention of a whip-smart new girl (Liana Liberato, “If I Stay”) who is determined to find out what’s really going on inside him. Soon, he finds himself caught between keeping the past alive and making new memories in the present. »
