Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

11 October 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine.

Who is Miyavi?

Managing Editor

Miyavi is a relatively unknown name in the States, but this soon may change. Miyavi (real name Takamasa Ishihara) is making his English acting debut as the brutal Pow camp overseer Mutsuhiro Watanabe — known as “The Bird” — in the Angelina Jolie-directed film Unbroken. Based on the book of the same name by Laura Hillenbrand, the film tells the true story of olympian and WWII Japanese Pow survivor Louis Zamperini.

Miyavi, known to some as the samurai guitarist, is a Japanese musician known for his ‘slap style’ guitar playing.

He was 17 when he joined the band Due le Quartz (he went by Miyabi), but after that disbanded in 2002, he began to pursue a solo career. He has since gone on four world tours, the most recent which was earlier this year, and has worked with bands, including Good Charlotte.

Miyavi is the founder and CEO of J-Glam Inc, »

Trailers from Hell Crosses 'The Bridge on the River Kwai'

26 May 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, John Landis deep dives into David Lean's classic war drama "The Bridge on the River Kwai." David Lean's 2 hour and 41 minute war drama was a box office smash in 1957, beloved not only by critics but World War II vets as well, regardless of the fact that its hero, played by Alec Guiness, is in fact an anti-hero, a by-the-book pedant whose obsession with military protocol only succeeds in aiding his enemy. The canny screenplay (by Carl Foreman) provides two compelling counterpoints to Guiness' driven colonel in William Holden’s deadbeat sailor and Sessue Hayakawa’s weak-willed commandant. Lean’s masterful command of the widescreen action and intimate drama makes "Bridge" an endlessly rewatchable experience »
