The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Movies: 20-11

20. The Godfather (1972)

Scene: The Horse Head

Video: http://youtu.be/VC1_tdnZq1A

It’s the sweeping epic that eventually spanned three films. But, without the sequels, the first still stands as one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time. The Godfather is a crime drama, a family drama, and a warped version of the American dream. The story focuses on the Corleone family, beginning at the marriage of his daughter, an expansive reception that serves as a wonderful introduction to the characters we would grow to love. Part of this intro is to demonstrate how ruthless the family could be if called to. Vito (Marlon Brando) will grant requests on this day, as it is his daughter’s wedding day. One of those requests comes from Johnny Fontane (Al Martino), Vito’s godson and a professional singer. He wants to land a contested part in a film, so »

Future 'Star Wars' Movies Will Span Multiple Genres

2 October 2014 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a new Wall Street Journal profile of LucasFilm's vice president of development, Kiri Hart, who is described as the Kevin Feige of the burgeoning Star Wars franchise, it was revealed that all of the ideas for Star Wars: Episode VII and every other franchise project, were developed at LucasFilm by her team, and that the franchise may delve into different genres.

Here's what Kiri Hart had to say, revealing that there is room for several genres to be explored while still keeping the same Star Wars tone intact.

"I think there are boundaries, but we don't want to rigidly define them. It's obviously not slapstick comedy, but there's room for many different stories and genres that still feel like 'Star Wars."

When asked if Star Wars Rebels marks a return to the same tone as the original trilogy, Kiri Hart had this to say.

Oscar-winning 'Apollo 13' sound mixer set for career achievement honor

29 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether you knew it or not, you've been listening to sound mixer David Macmillan's work for years. There's early stuff, like "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Birdy" and "SpaceCamp" (yes!). There's recent stuff like "Twilight," "Hancock" and "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin." And there's the Oscar-winning stuff scattered throughout, like "The Right Stuff," "Speed" and "Apollo 13." The guy is a legend in the field, so of course he's a great fit for the Cinema Audio Society's (Cas) Career Achievement Award. Macmillan began his career over half a century ago as an apprentice in Canadian television before eventually connecting with Francis Ford Coppola. The "Godfather" director was in the process of building American Zoetrope in San Francisco and hired Macmillan to run the company's mixing facility. From there, his career took off. He has more than 80 feature films to his credit, the three aforementioned Oscars (he won every time he was nominated), collaborations with Oliver Stone, »

Required Reading: Adult Adolescence and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’

15 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “The Death of Adulthood and the Rise of Pleasure, or Why Seth Rogen is More Serious Than Woody Allen” — Adam Sternbergh’s response to A.O. Scott’s thought-catalyst on maturity, pointing out the age-old element of these discussions and the kernel at their core. “Cultural essays about the death of adulthood are often Trojan horses for a different complaint: the death of seriousness. These essays read as modern analogues to the mid-20th-century jeremiads about middlebrow, which were, similarly, taking people to task for not being sophisticated (i.e., adult) enough in their cultural tastes.” “The Darkness of Kristen Wiig” — Noah Gittell at Esquire finds seriousness in the funny woman’s latest films (and in her earlier funnier ones). “How Julia Roberts became an icon by playing the Girl Next Door” — Matt Singer »

Previous Star Wars: Episode VII rumors have claimed that the movie will visit old locations from the previous movies, including Hoth, Endor, and Tatooine.
