James Shigeta, Star of ‘Flower Drum Song’ and ‘Die Hard’ Co-Star, Dies at 81

28 July 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Shigeta, one of the first prominent Asian-American actors, who co-starred in “Die Hard” and starred in “Flower Drum Song,” died Monday at 81.

Though largely a TV actor who guest-starred on dozens of shows, he appeared memorably in hit 1988 action film “Die Hard,” in which he played executive Joseph Takagi, who refuses to give up the security code to the skyscraper’s bank vault when a group of German terrorists seizes the building. He was shot in the head by the group’s leader, Hans Gruber, played by Alan Rickman.

In the big-budget WWII film “Midway” (1976), which told the story of the key battle from both American and Japanese points of view, Shigeta was featured prominently in the role of Vice Admiral Nagumo, whose despair at Japan’s loss in the battle is moving.

The actor had most recently appeared in the 2009 film “The People I’ve Slept With,” directed by Quentin Lee. »

Review: Herzog's "Nosferatu: The Vampyre" " (1979) On Blu-ray From Shout! Factory

25 April 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer 

The year 1979 was a good one for vampires, cinematically speaking. John Badham's version of "Dracula" premiered starring Frank Langella in the film version of his Broadway hit, George Hamilton had a surprise success with the spoof "Love At First Bite" and German director Werner Herzog unveiled his remake of the classic German silent horror movie "Nosferatu: The Vampyre". The original version by director F.W. Murnau is still regarded by many as the greatest horror movie ever made. Indeed, the mere sight of the film's star Max Schreck (who was as eerie in real life as he was on screen) is enough to give you nightmares. Herzog's version was not only the best of the vampire films released in 1979, it is a fitting homage to the Murnau classic. Working with a relatively extravagant budget, Herzog produced a film that is eerie and unsettling. He refrains from going for quick shocks, »

The Mindy Project Recap: L.A. Stories

15 January 2014 6:40 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The gang heads to a “Southland Injectibles Conference” (which we won’t analyze too deeply for its relevance to obstetrics and gynecology), presumably so they can actually shoot on location instead of using their middling-to-solid subway sets. Also, obviously, so they can do old turned suddenly sort of timely Entourage jokes.I’m not really complaining, though. For starters, this plotline gave us Mindy’s reference to her fresh Brazilian and her Star Maps, which was possibly worth the price of admission on its own: “So look out, George Hamilton, I hope you like your trespassers completely hairless.” Also, though I’m normally based in New York, I happen to be in Los Angeles on a business trip as I watch this, which gives me an eerie feeling that The Mindy Project is watching me, rather than vice versa. I can tell you, from my experience, that Danny is correct »
