The Best War Movies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

24 July 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” what is the best war movie ever made?

Read More‘Dunkirk’ Review: Christopher Nolan’s Monumental War Epic Is The Best Film He’s Ever Made Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

Howard Hawks’ “The Dawn Patrol,” from 1930, shows soldiers and officers cracking up from the cruelty of their missions — and shows the ones who manage not to, singing and clowning with an exuberance that suggests the rictus of a death mask. There’s courage and heroism, virtue and honor — at a price that makes the words themselves seem foul. John Ford’s “The Lost Patrol, »

Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 2 review: Stormborn

24 July 2017 12:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron Hogan Jul 24, 2017

The battle scenes in Stormborn are gorgeous to behold and not a moment of the episode feels wasted. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

7.2 Stormborn

One of the things that seems to have changed between the sixth and seventh season is the general flow of the episodes. Last week's episode transitioned very smoothly between segments. You'd have characters speaking to one another, then we'd cut to another scene involving one of those characters or one of the characters being spoken about. Stormborn not only continues that episodic organisation trait, but amplifies it. Daenerys discussing her desire to have Jon Snow come and bend the knee is one thing, but to get a match cut from a disgusting scene of Jorah being treated for his greyscale by Sam (by digging off chunks of his gray scaly flesh, complete with »

Olivia de Havilland Turns 101: 7 Key Roles (Photos)

30 June 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Olivia De Havilland, the last surviving starlet of Hollywood’s Golden Age, who freed fellow actors’ from crippling contracts, is 101 on Saturday, July 1, 2017. Here she is in a 1938 publicity photo. Her appearance in a 1935 Hollywood Bowl production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” led to a Warner Bros. contract she later fought to escape. Her lawsuit led to “De Havilland’s Law,” which limits such contracts to seven years. She was paired eight times with Errol Flynn, who often played a thief, pirate, or thieving pirate trying to steal her heart. Their most famous film was 1938’s “The Adventures of Robin. »

Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Latest Misfires: Law took on evil power-monger Vortigern opposite Charlie Hunnam as Arthur in Ritchie’s attempt to similarly update “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, »

TCM Remembers WB Actress Who Would Become Broadway Star

8 June 2017 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Canadian-born actress Alexis Smith (born 1921) would have turned 96 years old today, June 8. Turner Classic Movies is celebrating her birthday by presenting nine of her movies, mostly during her time as a Warner Bros. contract player. In addition to Michael Curtiz's box office hit Night and Day, a highly fictionalized Cole Porter biopic starring Cary Grant as a heterosexual version of the famed gay composer. Night and Day is being shown as part of TCM's Gay Pride Month celebration. Alexis Smith died on June 9, 1993, the day after she turned 72. After her film career petered out in the 1950s, she went on to receive acclaim on the Broadway stage, making sporadic film appearances all the way to the year of her death. Smith's last film appearance was in a minor supporting role in Martin Scorsese's overly genteel period drama The Age of Innocence (1993), starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Winona Ryder. »

Review: ‘The Mummy’ Is The Worst Tom Cruise Movie Ever

7 June 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What made Tom Cruise a movie star? It wasn’t his toothy smile or his all-American dimples. It wasn’t that he was cocky enough to be loved, but also vulnerable enough to be lovable, although that certainly helped. It wasn’t even the fact that the way he runs on screen tells us more about the fundamental nature of cinema than anyone has conveyed with a stride since Eadweard Muybridge trained his camera on a galloping horse. No, Tom Cruise became a movie star because he possessed something that galvanized all of those individual qualities into something special — a need for quality control.

Just consider those credits: “Risky Business.” “Top Gun.” “Born on the Fourth of July.” Cruise was a human seal of freshness decades before today’s Hollywood A-listers needed Rotten Tomatoes to validate their work. If “Cocktail” was the worst movie an actor made in the first decade of their career, »

Lgbt Pride Month: TCM Showcases Gay and Lesbian Actors and Directors

1 June 2017 5:40 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Considering everything that's been happening on the planet in the last several months, you'd have thought we're already in November or December – of 2117. But no. It's only June. 2017. And in some parts of the world, that's the month of brides, fathers, graduates, gays, and climate change denial. Beginning this evening, Thursday, June 1, Turner Classic Movies will be focusing on one of these June groups: Lgbt people, specifically those in the American film industry. Following the presentation of about 10 movies featuring Frank Morgan, who would have turned 127 years old today, TCM will set its cinematic sights on the likes of William Haines, James Whale, George Cukor, Mitchell Leisen, Dorothy Arzner, Patsy Kelly, and Ramon Novarro. In addition to, whether or not intentionally, Claudette Colbert, Colin Clive, Katharine Hepburn, Douglass Montgomery (a.k.a. Kent Douglass), Marjorie Main, and Billie Burke, among others.

David Wenham on why he changed his mind about TV's 'Wake in Fright'

1 June 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

David Wenham on set of his directorial feature debut, 'Ellipsis'..

In the second part of his interview with If, David Wenham chats about his recent roles in 'Wake in Fright', 'In Like Flynn' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'...

When David Wenham was offered the role of the police sergeant Jock Crawford in the miniseries Wake in Fright he initially recoiled at the idea.

As a passionate admirer of Canadian director Ted Kotcheff.s seminal 1971 movie based on the Kenneth Cook novel he thought the idea of a remake was ridiculous.

Wenham had watched the restored movie twice, at the Sydney Film Festival and at the Chauvel cinema, rating it as a visceral experience and an incredible piece of filmmaking.

However he changed his mind after reading Stephen M. Irwin.s script for the Network Ten two-parter directed by Kriv Stenders. »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – Review

“Pirates of the Caribbean” sets sail for one more adventure at sea, in what is being hinted to be the final chapter in the franchise, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The result is mixed, with the good being Javier Bardem and Geoffrey Rush as villains, great visual effects, and a nice, satisfying ending. The bad being having to endure an over-long, nonsensical plot with sporadic moments of entertainment to get there.

Ok, everyone has a guilty pleasure, and mine might be pirates. As a fan of all things pirate, including silly pirate movies, it was a delight when the first Pirates Of The Caribbean, Disney’s attempt to turn an amusement park ride into a movie, »

New Errol Flynn biopic In Like Flynn will *not* focus on his acting career

10 May 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's an old saying, "in like Flynn" that became associated later with Golden Age actor Errol Flynn that meant "having quickly or easily achieved a goal or gained access as desired", which made sense because he was known for getting what he wanted through pretty much charm alone.

Newswire: Errol Flynn to hunt for gold in upcoming biopic In Like Flynn

8 May 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

If any movie star of Hollywood’s golden age seems ready-made for a biopic, it’s Errol Flynn. His offscreen life was possibly more outrageous than his onscreen one, and on screen he was Robin Hood. Flynn, star of a variety of adventurous “swashbuckle” adventures in the 1930s and ’40s, was just as famous for his real-life scandalous exploits, which included yachting, problems with the I.R.S., statutory rape trials, and a partying lifestyle that could make a normal person’s liver shrivel up just hearing about it.

The newly announced movie In Like Flynn, based on a popular slang term based on the actor’s way with women, starts out much earlier, with a young Flynn heading out with a group of friends on a quest to find gold in New Guinea. Based on yet another unbelievable true story from Flynn’s own life, the production includes his »

The director of Highlander is making an Errol Flynn biopic

8 May 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow May 9, 2017

The director of Highlander and The Shadow has been tapped to direct a biopic on Errol Flynn's early years as a treasure hunter.

Errol Flynn is one of Hollywood’s very first action stars. Known for his dashing good looks (and his notorious after hours affairs), Flynn enjoyed a swashbuckling career in Hollywood throughout the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, famously defining the pirate subgenre with turns in Captain Blood (1935) and The Sea Hawk (1940), and going West, young man, for the genre’s first Technicolor extravaganza Dodge City (1938), as well as the classic piece of historical revisionism that is They Died With Their Boots On (1941). Of course, to many, he simply remains the definitive Prince of Thieves from The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). Sorry, Kevin.

But Flynn had plenty of adventures before he fell into movie song, drink, and lechery. And it appears it will be getting »
