’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix

19 September 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Picking favorites when it comes to “30 Rock” is an awful proposition because the whole series, barring a handful of exceptions, remains an extremely watchable and fascinating comedic journey. But with the show leaving Netflix at the beginning of October (and thus becoming completely unstreamable), we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to choose favorites.

Twenty-five episodes equates to less than 10 hours, so you should be able to make the time before September 30. And the adventures of Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and beyond are worth it.

“Tracy Does Conan

Season 1, Episode 7

The first season of “30 Rock” was a bit rocky, but “Tracy Does Conan” does a few important things: It introduces Dr. Leo Spaceman (Chris Parnell), casts Conan O’Brien as himself, and features Aubrey Plaza as an NBC page (a job she actually held in real life). More importantly, it features a breathless sense of anarchy, »

Competition: Win Premium Collection release ‘Point Blank’ on Blu-ray

15 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are giving away a limited edition poster and Blu-ray to celebrate the release of Point Blank – out 18th September 2017.

They double-crossed Walker, took his $93,000 cut of the heist and left him for dead, but they didn’t finish the job. Big mistake. He – someday, somehow – is going to finish them. Lee Marvin is in full antihero mode as remorseless Walker, talking the talk and walking the walk in John Boorman’s (Deliverance) edgy neo-noir classic filled with imaginative New Wave style, blunt dialogue and Walker’s relentless quest that, one by one, smashes into the corporate pecking order of a crime group called the Organisation. Angie Dickinson plays the accomplice who uses her seductive wiles to ensnare one of Walker’s prey.

Special Features:

Commentary by Director John Boorman and Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh Vintage Featurettes The Rock Part 1 and The Rock Part 2 Theatrical Trailer

Point Blank

15 August 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

John Boorman’s dreamily stylized adaptation of a Donald E. Westlake novel was way ahead of its time, adapting New Wave techniques to produce a deliberately alienating effect that confused and annoyed the brass at MGM, and might even be a moment-of-death flashback. Lee Marvin’s greatest role. Remade more conventionally as Payback in 1999. »

Opening Wednesday At A Theater Or Drive-in Near You: The Shadow Cinema Of The American ‘70S

6 August 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“All the films in this book share an air of disreputability… I have tried to avoid using the word art about the movies in this book, not just because I didn’t want to inflate my claims for them, but because the word is used far too often to shut down discussion rather than open it up. If something has been acclaimed as art, it’s not just beyond criticism but often seen as above the mere mortals for whom its presumably been made. It’s a sealed artifact that offers no way in. It is as much a lie to claim we can be moved only by what has been given the imprimatur of art as it would be to deny that there are, in these scruffy movies, the very things we expect from art: avenues into human emotion and psychology, or into the character and texture of the time the films were made, »

Hopscotch

5 August 2017 9:25 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A generic spy story becomes an inspired light comedy with the application of great talent led by the star-power of Walter Matthau. Matthau’s CIA spook hooks up with old flame Glenda Jackson to retaliate against his insufferable CIA boss (Ned Beatty) with a humiliating tell-all book about the agency’s dirty tricks history. Matthau’s sloppy, slouchy master agent is a comic delight; Ronald Neame’s stylishly assured direction makes a deadly spy chase into a wholly pleasant romp.

While cause of death has not been disclosed, reports in French media indicate she was found Monday morning in her apartment on Faubourgh-St.-Honoré by a maid.

French president Emmanuel Macron paid tribute to the late star on his twitter early Monday morning, calling her a “movie and theater legend” who was “engaged in the whirlwind of life with absolute freedom.”

Jeanne Moreau: 'The privilege of age is that I have more confidence and I am calmer. I know more about myself, I feel less egocentric' Photo: Unifrance Marcello Mastroianni who appeared with Jeanne Moreau in Michelangelo Antonioni's La Notte claims to have fallen in love with her at first sight.

“And she loves you in return,” he explained, “but just till the end of the film. She is always searching for love, and she leaves victims along the roadside."

Moreau, who has died in Paris aged 89, had a chequered history with the men in her life, including The Exorcist director William Friedkin whom she briefly married. She had a son Jerome, a painter, by a previous marriage to director Jean-Louis Richard. And she was linked to actors Lee Marvin and George Hamilton.

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, »

17 July 2017 5:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The early reviews of “Dunkirk” are in, and critics seem to be singing director Christopher Nolan’s praises.

Hitting theaters this Friday, Nolan’s World War II epic is currently averaging 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, thanks to overwhelmingly positive reviews.

Critics almost unanimously complimented Nolan’s ability to seamlessly interweave the Allied evacuation from three different perspectives: land, air, and sea. They also applauded the filmmaker’s decision to cast an ensemble of newcomers (Fionn WhiteheadTom Glynn-Carney, and Jack Lowden) alongside pop star Harry Styles, who is making his film acting debut.

The drama has already stirred up significant buzz, set to open with the widest 70Mm release in 25 years. One thing is clear based on early reviews — and that’s that Nolan’s vivid storytelling is likely make him a serious Oscar contender, with Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Nashawaty calling “Dunkirk,” “easily »

Film Review: Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’

17 July 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg laid claim to the Normandy beach landing, Clint Eastwood owns Iwo Jima, and now, Christopher Nolan has authored the definitive cinematic version of Dunkirk. Unlike those other battles, however, this last was not a conventional victory, but more of a salvaged retreat, as the German offensive forced a massive evacuation of English troops early in World War II. And unlike those other two directors, Nolan is only nominally interested in the human side of the story as he puts his stamp on the heroic rescue operation, offering a bravura virtual-eyewitness account from multiple perspectives — one that fragments and then craftily interweaves events as seen from land, sea and air.

Take away the film’s prismatic structure and this could be a classic war picture for the likes of Lee Marvin or John Wayne. And yet, there’s no question that the star here is Nolan himself, whose attention-grabbing approach alternates among three strands, chronological »

Sometimes one role can define an actor’s career. Sam Elliott plays such an actor in late life, facing his own mortality and coming to grips with his life and career, in the sometimes funny, sometimes touching drama The Hero. The Hero is an intimate personal drama that draws on universal human concerns in a story that is by turns comic, bittersweet or moving. Writer/director Brett Haley’s thoughtful film has the same feel of authenticity as his previous one, I’LL See You In My Dreams, in which Elliott co-starred with Blythe Danner. Like that film, The Hero is a life-affirming film that portrays older adults as fully rounded individuals living in this present world instead of two-dimensional types, human beings with brains, a sense of humor and romantic lives. »

Roger Moore Remembered: How His Light Touch Made Him the Most Enduring Bond

23 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The passing of Sir Roger Moore at 89 marks the first James Bond to do so. And the response from one of my sons was telling: “James Bond can’t die — he’s immortal.”

That sentiment will be shared by many Bond fans, particularly the generation that grew up with Moore in the ’70s and ’80s. Moore, who embraced the lighter side of Ian Fleming’s superspy, was also the most enduring, making a record seven franchise movies: “Live And Let Die” (1973), “The Man With The Golden Gun” (1974), “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977), “Moonraker” (1979), “For Your Eyes Only” (1981), “Octopussy” (1983), and “A View To A Kill (1985).”

While Sean Connery defined Bond as uber-cool and free-spirited (he enjoyed killing as much as shagging), Moore redefined him as devil may care to disarm the baddies. The first Bond to hail from London, Moore’s Bond wasn’t in it for the spying, he was »
