The Rounders

22 April 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

The laid-back, plot challenged non-violent western gets a boost in this folksy comedy about two aging cowboys with less sense than the horses they tame. Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda star together for the first time, leaving behind their older images… they’re too tender-hearted for their own good. If the sex comedy wasn’t quite so dated, Burt Kennedy’s picture might be a classic.

Ride the High Country

4 April 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

Before he became the flag bearer for cinema violence, Sam Peckinpah made his reputation with this unique western, a marvelous rumination on ethics, morality and personal responsibility. MGM all but threw it away in the summer of 1962 but it immediately became a critical favorite.

Guest Post: What Inspired Me to Make a Film About Retirees

Silver Skies

Guest Post by Rosemary Rodriguez

There’s an abundance of turmoil, fear, anger, and hatred expressed through images that come at us 24/7 through social media, TV, and movies. As a society, we are more visual than ever, and we have more choices of entertainment than ever in our history. As a director, it’s crucial for me to listen to my heart because in the end, that’s where my stories live. And my life revolves around telling them.

My newest film, “Silver Skies,” was inspired by my parents. They adopted me when my mother was 42 years old, so I was very young watching them get older. I saw their struggles firsthand, and watched them become invisible to the world around them. I saw how their relationships with work, their friends, their family, and each other changed as they aged. The most important thing to them was staying independent, financially and physically. When these declined, it hit them hard.

When we are young, we make decisions that will affect the rest of our lives. My hope is that watching “Silver Skies” will make people of all ages think about their own lives, their own goals, and their own dreams. I want them to look at the people around them differently, and to think about their decisions more carefully — to consider how the choices they make now will affect them in the long-term.

My first movie, “Acts of Worship,” was about homeless drug addicts, who, like older people, are dismissed in our society. I love giving characters that are marginalized a voice. Seniors and drug addicts are in that category: Easy to pass on the street, or walk around them quickly because they’re just in the way.

Today, more than ever, it’s crucial to tell stories about people different than we are, yet have the same struggles and desires. Movies have that power. They bring empathy, compassion, insight, and a commonality that we may not experience otherwise.

Movies help us get inside another person’s life and connect to their humanity. Powerful movies live in our imagination forever.

The real challenge with independent movies today isn’t making them; it’s getting them seen. Distribution costs are massive. Marketing money has to be in every budget before shooting. It’s not a luxury; it’s crucial. Making noise to cut through all the other TV and movie options out there is daunting, to say the least. This has been my biggest obstacle with “Silver Skies.” Yes, there are more ways to show a movie. Yes, millions of people have access to a movie. But how will they find it? That’s what keeps me up at night.

What I hear repeated a lot is that a movie has to be a “movement not just a movie.” Frankly, I’m not even sure what that means. All I know is that when I sit in a dark theater with an audience watching “Silver Skies,” they take the ride with some amazing senior actors: George Hamilton, Barbara Bain, Jack McGee, Mariette Hartley, Jack Betts, Alex Rocco, and Valerie Perrine. At some point, they stop seeing the actors and begin to see themselves and their lives on screen. That’s what they tell me. They thank me for showing that seniors are not stereotypes like the grouchy grandparent or the butt of a joke. Seniors have sexual lives; they fall in love; they fight; they work at jobs with crazy bosses; they get jolted by injustice; they worry about finances. They deal with the same issues that we all do. The audiences laughs and they cry. When I’m fortunate enough to experience my movie alongside them, my heart is full like nothing else matters in the world. Then I start thinking about my next movie…..

Silver Skies” will begin streaming April 4 on Amazon and iTunes.

Rosemary Rodriguez wrote and directed the Sundance feature film “Acts of Worship,” which was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards. Her episodic TV work includes “Jessica Jones,” “The Good Wife,” and “The Walking Dead.” Rodriguez is currently directing a documentary about renowned graffiti writer Lee Quinones, and her next dramatic feature will be “Loose Girl,” based on the memoir by Kerry Cohen. She hosts “The Director’s Chair,” a podcast on iTunes.

Silver Skies debuts on DVD, Amazon and  iTunes April 4th

When Dana Jung reviewed Silver Skies here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote “.…. there’s no better way to spend a couple of hours than skipping down memory lane with the  old friends of Silver Skies.” Read all of Dana’s review Here

And read my interview with Silver Skies director Rosemary Rodriguez Here

With humor and compassion, Silver Skies chronicles the unexpected developments that occur when a group of eccentric seniors have their lives turned upside down by the sale of their beloved apartment complex. A refreshingly original story about getting older and trying to hold tight to the American Dream, the film features a cast of much-loved screen icons: George Hamilton, Valerie Perrine, Barbara Bain, Jack McGee, Alex Rocco, Mariette Hartley, Jack Betts, and Howard Hesseman. Far from playing their usual roles, however, the actors fully inhabit »

Will ‘Legion’ Leave a Mark This Emmy Season?

8 February 2017 6:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX is set to premiere “Legion” Wednesday night, a new series from the mind of showrunner Noah Hawley (“Fargo”) that could make a splash in Emmy season where countless comic book shows have previously failed.

While “Game of Thrones” has certainly found its stride, genre bias has nevertheless done its part over the years to hold programs like this back when it comes to awards. But on rare occasions, a comic book title has sparked in a major category: “Batman” landed a comedy series nomination and a mention for supporting actor Frank Gorshin in 1966. “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” was singled out for direction in 1994. Mariette Hartley even won the drama actress prize for “The Incredible Hulk” in 1979, beating out the likes of Rita Moreno (“The Rockford Files”) and Barbara Bel Geddes (“Dallas”).

The only superhero show to truly hit with the Television Academy was “Heroes,” but that was an original concept, not »
