Film News: Gene Wilder of ‘Willy Wonka’ Fame Dies at 83

29 August 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – The genius comedy of Gene Wilder was often in the subtlety. With a slow burn or a raised eyebrow, Wilder was able to draw big laughs. The star of “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” and “Young Frankenstein” died in Stamford, Connecticut, according to his nephew in Los Angeles. He was 83.

Wilder was well into his thirties before the first big break came along in 1967, in the classic film “Bonnie and Clyde.” From there he was able to trade in his frizzy-haired persona in his co-starring role in Mel Brook’s “The Producers” (1968). It was his collaboration with Brooks that certified his legacy, with one-two punch of “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein” in 1974. He was also held in high regard by a generation of children with his classic turn as the title character in “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” (1971).

Gene Wilder Opens Up About Making of ‘Willy Wonka’ and ‘Young Frankenstein’ – Watch

5 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Public sightings of iconic actor Gene Wilder are as rare these days as public sightings of Willy Wonka (or Arthur Halliday). Three years ago, the retiree spoke with Robert Osborne at the 92nd Street Y in New York City in a rare public appearance. He discussed filming Mel Brooks classics like “Young Frankenstein” and “The Producers,” making Willy Wonka into his own and the state of modern Hollywood (including remakes of his own films!). The results will make you wish you could see Wilder back on the big screen.

It’s safe to assume Wilder has an old sensibility towards the industry. In this talk, he touches on his dislike for profanity in today’s films (“When they’re swearing… can’t they just stop and talk? Instead of swearing?”), confusion over what a podcast is (“Would I come on your what? »

X-Men: Apocalypse review – smack bang into the 80s

22 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar Isaac takes his turn as the bad guy in this latest likable instalment of the comic superhero saga

“The weak have taken the Earth…” In Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine’s consciousness was teleported back from an apocalyptic future to a retro-1970s past to achieve a Terminator-style rewriting of the present. This messy sequel (technically still a prequel) goes back further to ancient Egypt, where a proto uber-mutant’s Temple of Doom-style-meets-Stargate regeneration is stalled, only to resume in 1983. With Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) hiding her true-blue colours in East Berlin and Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) passing as a production-line worker in Poland, new recruits continue to gather at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. But when sunlight awakens Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur (aka Apocalypse), it’s time for forces old and new to pull together once again. Suffering from the »

Let Her Be Horny: Talking Cinema with Amy Heckerling

13 May 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Amy HeckerlingThe films of Amy Heckerling reveal a heart guarded and tender, a penchant for the past without a whiff of the maudlin. Who could forget her debut, Fast Times at Ridgemont High? Directed from Cameron Crowe's script, the 1982 film gave us frank portrayals of sexuality and the detailed minutiae of growing up, suspended in the hazy tedium of high school, all without condescension or patronizing. Totally righteous. Heckerling proved attuned to the particulars of comedy with her next feature Johnny Dangerously (1984), a waggish send-up of the 1930s gangster comedy. In its cheeky beginning, a 1935 title card reveals itself to be a real material object that crumbles when car crash obliterates its façade. With a darkened lash line, a young Michael Keaton puts forth his best James Cagney as the titular mobster whose identity and status are known to all but his ailing ma and brother, a rising assistant Da. »

Listen to Marc Maron’s 2.5-Hour, Career-Spanning Interview With William Friedkin

25 February 2016 6:19 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

He’s created one of the scariest films of all-time (The Exorcist), did the impossible by proving a remake can work (Sorcerer), put one of the greatest car chases on film (The French Connection), and much more, yet William Friedkin still seems to be under-appreciated in most circles. Although it’s been half-a-decade since his last feature, one can find him highly engaged on Twitter or around the festival circuit giving talks. Today we have perhaps his most extensive conversation yet as he’s sat down with Marc Maron for a 2.5-hour talk.

The two discuss his legendary career, who inspired him, from Orson Welles to the French New Wave, the themes of faith and fate in his features, the making of both his classics and the films that weren’t initially received well. In one of the most interesting sections, they also talk about how he got Gene Hackman »

'Taxi Driver': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Martin Scorsese's Classic

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"You talkin' to me?"

It's the 40th anniversary of "Taxi Driver" (released on February 8, 1976), the movie that gave Robert De Niro his most famous line, put Martin Scorsese on the map, proved that the pre-teen Jodie Foster was an Oscar-worthy thespian, and (most notoriously) was cited by John Hinckley as an inspiration for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

In honor of the film's anniversary, here are 25 things you need to know about how Travis Bickle came to be.

1. The script, by Paul Schrader (pictured, left), was semi-autobiographical. After a divorce and a break-up with a girlfriend, he wrote the movie while living in his car, feeling suicidal, obsessing about guns and pornography, and having spoken to no one for weeks. As he recalled in 2013, "Taxi Driver" was "an exorcism through art," and it worked.

2. Martin Scorsese saw the script as early as 1972, but didn't yet have the clout to make it, »

Blu-ray Review – The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)

24 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Friends of Eddie Coyle, 1973.

Directed by Peter Yates.

Starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos and Mitchell Ryan.

Synopsis:

After his last crime has him looking at a long prison sentence for repeat offenses, a low level Boston gangster decides to snitch on his friends to avoid jail time.

Eddie Coyle is a small time gun runner for an organised crime outfit in Boston. He knows the game. He knows when to keep his mouth shut and what happens to those who do not. They call him ‘Fingers’ due to an incident with his hand, an open drawer, and someone’s foot closing that draw on his hand. It’s a constant reminder of the life he chose.

We enter the film with Eddie in trouble; caught smuggling contraband and it’s not his first time which means another stretch in jail. But Eddie is 51 years old, »

‘The Friends of Eddie Coyle’ Blu-ray Review (MoC)

Stars: Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos, Mitchell Ryan, Peter MacLean, Marvin Lichterman, Carolyn Pickman, James Tolkan, Margaret Ladd, Matthew Cowles | Written by Paul Monash | Directed by Peter Yates

One of the fun things about loving a particular medium is the aspect of things being recommended, and this is something which has really grown in prominence for me with the growth of social media and podcasts. Having so much immediate access to the thoughts and opinions of others you specifically choose to listen to, whether they align with your tastes or challenge them, enables the discovery of a great deal of content in which much pleasure can be derived. One such example of this is The Friends of Eddie Coyle, a film which I hadn’t heard of before seeing and hearing talk of it’s forthcoming release over the past few months. Seeing »

Scary Monsters: Heather’s Favorite Stand-Alone Episodes of The X-Files

22 January 2016 5:57 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in Deadly Magazine #5] While fans of The X-Files may have been drawn in by the conspiracy theory plots interwoven throughout the series’ nine seasons, there’s a lot to be said for Chris Carter’s “Monster-of-the-Week” approach, which gave us some of the greatest creatures and oddities to ever grace the small screen.

If you’ve ever wanted to check out The X-Files, but don’t necessarily desire the shadow government and alien cover-up mythologies, here are several great stand-alone episodes that can be enjoyed as mini-horror and/or sci-fi movies—even if you aren’t well-versed on all things Mulder and Scully.

“Humbug” (Season 2, Episode 20): In “Humbug,” FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully are called down to a trailer park in Florida where a string of mysterious murders have targeted a community of retired freak show performers for years. What they uncover is something akin to the cult classic film Basket Case »
