Movie Review – Hinterland (2015)

26 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hinterland, 2015.

Directed by Harry MacQueen.

Starring Harry MacQueen and Lori Campbell.

Synopsis:

Two childhood friends escape to their old countryside house for a weekend.

Hinterland is a carbon neutral movie: the filmmaking process involved as few emissions as possible, and any unavoidable pollution (like the beat-up car the two leads journey around in for the majority) is offset somewhere else. Like by planting a tree or something. It’s a noble endeavour, crediting all involved with immeasurable karma. Unfortunately, Hinterland is also an emotionally neutral movie.

It’s a telling fact that both this review’s opening and a portion of the film’s marketing reference its planet-saving efforts. Beyond being ‘carbon neutral’ and ‘only made for £10,000′ (both undoubtedly impressive production feats), the movie follows two childhood friends – Harvey (writer, director, producer and star Harry MacQueen), a struggling writer, and Lola (singer-songwriter Lori Campbell), a struggling singer-songwriter – who find themselves back home in isolated, »

We Don’t Belong Together: The (500) Days of Summer Color Palette Theory

24 February 2015 6:31 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

To preface, I’ve seen 500 Days of Summer maybe five or six times now and love everything about it. However, I’ve always been somewhat confused as to why Summer (Zooey Deschanel) goes off and marries someone else at the end of the film. I believe it is meant to be somewhat ambiguous as we see this movie from Tom’s (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) perspective, and as result, we the audience, are meant to relate to his confusion and surprise by Summer’s change of heart and mind. My brother and I watched it again, and this time I searched for clues and foreshadowing early on as to why Summer doesn’t stick around. Here’s my theory, based on the film’s use of colors. The film is rich in them. Scenes are often dominantly one color, with many shades of that color surrounding it. Tom is represented by brown/auburn and neighboring shades. Here »

Chris Messina on How a 'Mindy Project' Baby Changes Everything: 'The Show Won’t Be the Same!'

18 February 2015 12:01 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you’re worried that The Mindy Project won’t be the same once Mindy and Danny’s baby arrives, well...you’re right.

“The show won’t be the same. It will be different,” Dr. Castellano himself, Chris Messina, told ETonline while discussing the film Alex of Venice, his upcoming directorial debut. (More on that tomorrow.) “But the style of the show won’t change…They’ll still get the laughs.”

In our Q&A, he discussed everything from what he thinks of the surprising pregnancy reveal, to what kind of dad he thinks Danny will be, to the Annette and Dot spin-off we all want to see. And of course we asked if we’ll see Danny bust out his stripper moves again this season.

Zooey Deschanel: No Pregnancy Plans for New Girl Yet

17 February 2015 7:01 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Zooey Deschanel has different plans from her sister, as she has no new baby plans for New Girl. Yes, the real life pregnant star caught up with The Hollywood Reporter about the changes coming up at the end of the season. She indirectly confirmed that she won’t have to hide her growing belly as they wrap it up, since she feels as if she is not showing much yet. However, she also did not rule out a possible pregnancy for next season. Here is what Zooey had to say.

It’s hard to know until we finish the season. Right now, I’m only showing a little bit, so it’s pretty easy to still hide in clothes. Maybe, eventually, I’ll have to stand behind a couch or walk around carrying a purse.

Well played, Zooey! It likely helps that she does not know how they will end it yet. »

Sleepyheads, circle the wagons, because we’ve got a lot to talk about.

This week’s Sleepy Hollow not only killed off Henry and sent Abbie skipping through time like a smooth stone, it officially turned Katrina into the Witnesses’ adversary.

A Brief History of Film Romance: Flappers, Hippies, Rebels and Hipsters

13 February 2015 9:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In one hundred years of film, the basic formula has never wavered: if you want to leave them smiling, end with a kiss. But while all screen kisses may be heart-warming, they've looked very different since the dawn of cinema. Here's a look at the history of screen romance, by the decades:   Decade: 1920’s Romantic Ideals: Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo Their Day Jobs: Sheik and coat-check girl How They Meet: Trapped in a desert oasis while traveling under a secret identity Obstacle in their Path: Her drunken husband, his nattering wives, Hammurabi’s code condemning to death all who gaze upon a member of the tribe. Big Cool Friend’s Advice: “Sail to the ends of the earth, where a man may forget.” Final Kiss Location: Under a full moon atop Mount Kilimanjaro. Watch Party Streaming Pick: “The Sheik”   Decade: 1930’s Romantic Ideals: Jean Arthur and Cary Grant Their Day Jobs: Con-woman and paleontologist. »

Soundtracking: A Valentine from Zooey Deschanel

12 February 2015 11:51 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s not always easy to pin-point where the crush started, but there’s no denying that at some point nearly everyone has been in love with Zooey Deschanel.

In recent years, Deschanel has been easy to locate, appearing weekly on the small screen with “New Girl.” However, she so quietly went from the background to the spotlight that it’s hard to pinpoint when she made her first impression.

For many, that breakthrough was Cameron Crowe’s 2000 autobiopic, Almost Famous.

Her role as William Miller’s older sister/spirit guide has faded into the background of the film’s lore, eclipsed over the past 15 years in turn by Frances McDormand’s commanding motherly presence, Kate Hudson’s “band-aid” breakthrough and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s manic incarnation of Lester Bangs.

But it was actually Deschanel’s Anita that got the story in motion. She leaves home, but leaves her records »

6 February 2015 7:53 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Zooey Deschanel is ''so excited'' to meet her unborn baby. The 'New Girl' star, who recently confirmed she is expecting her first child with fiancé Jacob Pechenik, admits she is overjoyed to be pregnant. The 35-year-old actress said: ''I'm really excited. I'm so excited. I'm just so excited to meet my baby! We're very excited.'' The brunette beauty still has to hide her growing baby bump on the set of the comedy series because her character Jess isn't going to be pregnant. She told E!

The actress will have approximately five months off soon as production on the current series will wrap up in early March.

From Tilda Swinton to Tina Fey: who channels their inner Katharine Hepburn?

5 February 2015 10:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Some unlikely actors have been inspired by the Oscar-winning icon. As the BFI launches a retrospective, we pick our favourites

In a slew of romantic and screwball comedies of the 1930s and 40s, Katharine Hepburn defied convention by playing women who were independent, forthright and unruly. She had the audacity to behave that way off-screen, too. Myth and nostalgia would have you believe she was unique, but she has spawned many kindred spirits working today. Less the manic pixie such as Zooey Deschanel or Kirsten Dunst, or feisty beauties such as Penelope Cruz or Jennifer Lawrence, or even scatty navel-gazers such as Greta Gerwig or Lena Dunham. Here are 10 Hollywood actors who have channelled Hepburn’s chutzpah, and whose shtick wouldn’t exist without her.

5 February 2015 7:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

He left the show once before, and now, Damon Wayans Jr. will be saying goodbye to "New Girl" again.

TVLine reports that the actor, who plays Coach on the Fox comedy, will depart the series at the end of its current fourth season. No reason for his exit was explained.

"I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to come back to New Girl in Season 3 to reprise the role of Coach," Wayans told TVLine in a statement. "Working with this incredibly talented and funny cast and crew has been one of the best experiences of my career."

Wayans was originally cast as Coach in the "New Girl" pilot, but bowed out of the series when his ABC show "Happy Endings" was unexpectedly renewed. He was replaced in the ensemble by Lamorne Morris's Winston, though he returned in a guest starring stint in season three, and became a series regular again for season four. »
