New on DVD Blu-ray August 12: 'Locke,' 'The Blacklist,' 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'

11 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Locke"

What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.

Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Love Streams" (Criterion)

What's It About? John Cassavetes and real-life wife Gena Rowlands star as siblings who turn to each other for support after being left by everyone else in their lives. »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

From 'Traitor' to Screen Legend: Fonda Still Busy on the Big Screen

Jane Fonda: From ‘Vietnam Traitor’ to AFI Award and Screen Legend status (photo: Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’) (See previous post: “Jane Fonda Movies: Anti-Establishment Heroine.”) Turner Classic Movies will also be showing the 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Jane Fonda, the former “Vietnam Traitor” and Barbarella-style sex kitten who has become a living American screen legend (and healthy-living guru). Believe it or not, Fonda, who still looks disarmingly great, will be turning 77 years old next December 21; she’s actually older than her father Henry Fonda was while playing Katharine Hepburn’s ailing husband in Mark Rydell’s On Golden Pond. (Henry Fonda died at age 77 in August 1982.)

Octavia Spencer on Scrapped Murder, She Wrote Reboot: "Everything Happens for a Reason"

22 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Everything happens for a reason." Octavia Spencer told E! News she's a firm believer in that thinking. The Oscar winner was curled up on a couch at the Beverly Hilton next to her Red Band Society costar Dave Annable on Sunday, July 20, to promote their new Fox series, but this scenario was very close to not happening. Spencer was attached to star in the headline-grabbing NBC reboot of Murder, She Wrote as a hospital administrator and mystery writer. The project got a lot of attention, especially after original series star Angela Lansbury spoke out about the reboot and its eventual combustion. Spencer said she's "glad" things worked out the way they did. "You know, that would not »

Stage And Screen Legend Elaine Stritch Dies At 89

17 July 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Elaine Stritch, one of the most unforgettable and acerbically funny actors of the Broadway stage, as well as the big and small screen, died at her home in Birmingham, Mich., on Thursday. She was 89.

A brash and beautiful presence who infused audiences with laughter even into her late eighties, Stritch is perhaps best known to young audiences as Colleen Donaghy, the mother of Alec Baldwin’s character on 30 Rock. Since the early 1950s, the actress had been entertaining audiences on the New York stage, racking up four Tony nominations. She was such a titan of Broadway that in 2003, in the late prime of her career, the New York Landmarks Conservancy declared Stritch a “Living Landmark.” She also won three Emmy awards between 1993 and 2007.

On Broadway, she was best known for her performance as Joanne in the Stephen Sondheim-penned musical Company and for stealing the show in Noel Coward’s »

Elaine Stritch (1925-2014)

17 July 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

When Colleen Donaghy died on 30 Rock in the episode "My Whole Life is Thunder" I tried to think of it as tragicomic rehearsal. A chance to acknowledge that death was coming for the beloved theater great but to laugh at it or at least about its absurd finality.

Elaine Stritch herself wouldn't have approved of my wussiness. She might've said something like "it's me who's dying, not you!" (albeit in a much funnier manner) because she had a tart tongue and was quite a truth teller. In the documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (reviewed) released early this year she references her impending death more than a little as she prepares to move back home (Detroit) and retire finally, in her late eighties, for good.

But even this documentary didn't quite convince me that she was leaving us.

Elaine Stritch, Acerbic Tony and Emmy Winner, Dies at 89

17 July 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actress Elaine Stritch, star of Broadway hits including “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” and “Show Boat,” who was nominated for multiple Tonys and Emmys, winning three of the latter, has died. She was 89.

Stritch, an atypical star of stage and screen known for her association with Stephen Sondheim, quickly gained a reputation for the worldly, acerbic wit that often defined her characters. In her one-woman show “Elaine Stritch at Liberty,” Stritch talked candidly about battling the bottle and her colorful, albeit destructive, love life. Her role as the drunk yet lucid Claire in “A Delicate Balance” earned her a 1996 Tony nomination for best actress. Roles in “Bus Stop,” “Sail Away” and “Company” snagged her three other noms while “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” won her the 2002 award for special theatrical event.

The Always Outrageous Elaine Stritch Is Dead

17 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mark Kennedy, Associated Press

Jake Coyle, Associated Press

New York (AP) - Elaine Stritch, the brash theater performer whose gravelly, gin-laced voice and impeccable comic timing made her a Broadway legend, has died. She was 89.

Joseph Rosenthal, Stritch's longtime attorney, said the actress died Thursday of natural causes at her home in Birmingham, Michigan.

Although Stritch appeared in movies and on television, garnering three Emmys and finding new fans as Alec Baldwin's unforgiving mother on "30 Rock," she was best known for her stage work, particularly in her candid one-woman memoir, "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty," and in the Stephen Sondheim musical "Company."

A tart-tongued monument to New York show business endurance, Stritch worked well into her late 80s, most recently as Madame Armfeldt in a revival of Sondheim's musical "A Little Night Music." She replaced Angela Lansbury in 2010 to critical acclaim.

A Year with Kate: State of the Union (1948)

18 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 25 of 52: In which Kate confronts Angela Lansbury onscreen and the Blacklist offscreen and manages to beat both.

 Early on, I stated that sometimes Kate’s career seems charmed. I’d venture 1948 is one of those charmed years. As we saw last week, Song of Love failed--Kate’s first failure at MGM.  Yet some strange circumstances and good luck landed Kate in State of the Union, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play. I say “good luck” because in the fall of 1947, the storm that would become the Hollywood Blacklist was brewing, and Kate nearly got caught in the center of it.

Though not as cloyingly obvious as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - no light from the Lincoln Memorial in this film - State of the Union nevertheless delivers the classic Capra Corn package: nostalgia, patriotism, and a happy ending snatched from the jaws of tragedy at the last second. »

Emmys: A Glut of Great TV Will Lead to Big Snubs

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We live in a world where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up to soccer or gymnastic camp. But unfortunately, that’s not so among grownups. The morning of July 10 is going to bring disappointment for many actors, writers and producers. Despite lavish “For Your Consideration” ad campaigns and much-debated category jockeying, plenty of deserving names are not going to get called.

Consider that Michael Landon — star of “Bonanza,” “Little House on the Prairie” and “Highway to Heaven” — was never even nominated once. Not once.

Small comfort, then, that Hugh Laurie, crown prince of the era of misanthropic main men, never claimed the golden statue, despite being nominated six times.

Perhaps this will finally be Jon Hamm’s year: He’s earned a nod every year for “Mad Men” but has gone home empty-handed.

Miscellania: Moustache Banner, Reader Spotlight, Tony Hangover

9 June 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Three Quick Things.

1. Enjoy the new banner, subject matter chosen by reader John who won the last round of "say what". It'll be moustaches all week (though not the same ones. If you're paying attention the banner changes fairly regularly.)

2. I am so appreciative of you readers. Not that many people signed up for subscriptons so I'll still be a wailing beggarwoman out of a tragic musical at nights but I received so many kind birthday wishes and that's wonderful, too. The fitness and self-improvement group that some of you signed up for is chugging along nicely, too...early stages. So it's time to bring back Reader Spotlight! We'll start again real soon so you can get to know each other, the Tfe community.

3. I don't really have a Tony hangover -- I was good last night but for the birthday cake devouring -- but the Tonys linger. (I am »
