'Stranger Things': How Netflix's Retro Hit Resurrects the Eighties

21 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's one thing to set a TV series in the 1980s; it's a whole other thing, however, to make it feel like it was actually shot during the Reagan-and-Rubik's-Cube era. Matt and Ross Duffer's new Netflix series Stranger Things is full of nostalgic nods to the decade and its pop-cultural products, but it's also uncommonly rigorous about getting the details just right — whether it's the many pitch-perfect music cues, the hat-tipping nods and homages to Eighties movies, or simply nailing the cringeworthy fashion statements of the day (those Mom jeans! »

‘The Edge of Seventeen’ Trailer: Hailee Steinfeld Toplines High School Drama That Channels John Hughes

15 July 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“There are two types of people in the world. The people who radiate confidence and naturally excel at life, and the people who hope all those people die in a big explosion.” That pretty much sums up high school junior Nadine’s (Hailee Steinfeld) thoughts on the social ladder, with her being at the bottom of the pyramid.

Growing up is hard, and it’s even harder when at the age of 13 your new haircut makes you look like Pedro from “Napoleon Dynamite.” But Nadine is a tough girl who, even though her brother is the most popular guy at school, is happy just getting by with her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) at her side. Though, like every coming-of-age story there is always something that goes awry.

Deadline is reporting that Woody Harrelson and James Marsden have signed on to appear in Shock and Awe, an Iraq war drama from director Rob Reiner, which reteams the filmmaker with his Lbj screenwriter Joey Hartstone.

The site reports that the project follows “Knight-Ridder reporters Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel, who after the events of 9/11, meet with their bureau chief John Walcott to get to the bottom of who was responsible. They find their sources telling them the Bush Administration is trying to tie Saddam Hussein to the terror attacks, even though there is no evidence to support the claim. As the push for war in Iraq increases, they bring in legendary reporter Joe Galloway to give them the high-level sources to help counter the false narrative of Hussein, al-Qaeda and WMDs. They find themselves one of the only media sources running stories countering the prevailing narrative. In the end, »

How ‘Norman Lear’ Directors Found ‘Just Another Version of You’

13 July 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ever since it wowed opening-night crowds at Sundance 2016, documentary biopic “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” has met a range of reactions. That’s because it’s more than a straightforward cradle-to-grave chronicle of Lear’s remarkable decades of television creativity. (Music Box opened the film in New York July 8, Los Angeles hits July 15, PBS’s American Masters airs in October, followed in November by Netflix.)

 

Documentarians Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Oscar-nominated “Jesus Camp,” shortlisted “Detropia”) recognized that, at 93, their subject is still vital and engaging—years after creating groundbreaking ’70s shows “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” “Maude,” and “Sanford and Sons,” among others, not to mention founding liberal action group People for the American Way.

And so they gave Lear leeway to fashion his on-screen persona, and brought in plenty of friendly talking heads, including, most controversially, George Clooney. In turn, Lear let them dig and »

Boyz n the Hood Turns 25

12 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Lynn Lee revisits the John Singleton classic on its 25th anniversary.

Four young boys walk along a railroad track, idly chatting but in search of something specific.  They find what they’re looking for: a dead body.  A group of older boys arrives and harasses them.  The most pugnacious of the younger group fights back in a way that foreshadows his destiny as an adult.

Stand by Me?  No, Boyz n the Hood, which opened in theaters 25 years ago today.  And the parallels are no mere coincidence. Writer and drector John Singleton was intentionally referencing the earlier Rob Reiner film – perhaps as much for the differences as the similarities between the two narratives of boyhood and the cultural spaces they occupy »

The director-centric 1970s were a time for pushing the boundaries of 'acceptable' film content, but John Byrum's witty and profane period piece about a Hollywood porn director was a step too far. Richard Dreyfuss leads a cast of utterly fearless actors in a witty and intelligent dissection of movieland decadence.

At least in Los Angeles, the theatrical showings of John Byrum's remarkable Inserts came and went (cough) so fast that nobody had time to be outraged. The reviews made it sound like sordid trash that could only attract men in plastic raincoats. »
