The Birds Screens at Schlafly Thursday – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

The Birds screens at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143)  Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm. It is a benefit for Helping Kids Together (more details about this event can be found Here)

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list from March of 2012. Alfred Hitchcock directed 54 feature films between 1925 and 1976, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. Perhaps ole’ ” Hitch ” wanted to give those young up-and-coming »

Review: Amy Schumer is only pretending to be a 'Trainwreck' for Judd Apatow

16 March 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - While it was introduced as a work in progress, Judd Apatow's new film "Trainwreck" looked pretty much locked and ready to release when it played on Sunday afternoon at the Paramount. Since "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" was released, Judd Apatow's filmography has been made up exclusively of films he wrote, many of which felt very personal. "This Is 40" felt to me like a summation of a lot of those ideas and themes, and I'm glad he took some time to decide how to follow that film. "Trainwreck" was written by Amy Schumer, and her voice runs clearly through every part of this movie. What Judd's done here, and it's not as easy as it sounds, is turned his own considerable success into a shield he could use to protect Schumer and guarantee that her voice reached the screen intact. As a result, "Trainwreck" is lacerating, smart, »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Trainwreck’

16 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Monogamy isn’t realistic” says a soon-to-be-divorced dad to his two pre-teen daughters in an early scene from Judd Apatow’s “Trainwreck.” Two decades later, those words have taken their toll on one of those erstwhile little girls — a tart-tongued, booze-swilling serial dater (writer-star Amy Schumer) whose love life is barreling downhill with ever-increasing velocity. She’s the screwed-up, screwball heroine at the center of a somewhat shaggy, frequently hilarious romantic comedy that, like much of Apatow’s best work, delicately balances irreverent raunch with candid insights into the give-and-take of grown-up relationships. The change in scenery (New York from L.A.) and gender emphases serves Apatow well, as does Schumer’s excitingly original comic voice, which should spell a critical and commercial rebound for the comedy impresario, following the mixed fortunes of his more sober, semi-autobiographical “Funny People” and “This Is 40.” The Universal release opens wide July 17 following »

Criterion announces its May Blu-ray line-up

18 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Criterion has announced six new Blu-ray releases as part of its May line-up of the digitally remastered Criterion Collection. Two of the most notable releases are Charlie Chaplin’s Limelight and Bette Midler-starrer The Rose, which are scheduled for release on May 19th.

The full line-up, with technical specifications and artworks, are listed below:

The Rose

Bette Midler exploded onto the screen with her take-no-prisoners performance in this quintessential film about fame and addiction from director Mark Rydell. Midler is the rock-and-roll singer Mary Rose Foster (known as the Rose to her legions of fans), whose romantic relationships and mental health are continuously imperiled by the demands of life on the road. Incisively scripted by Bo Goldman and beautifully shot by Vilmos Zsigmond (with assistance on the dazzling concert scenes by a host of other world-class cinematographers, including Conrad L. Hall, László Kovács, Owen Roizman, and Haskell Wexler), this »

"Trainwreck" 'Red Band' Trailer

11 February 2015 5:44 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek an official restricted 'red band' trailer supporting director Judd Apatow's comedy feature "Trainwreck", written by and starring Amy Schumer, with Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena, Ezra Miller, LeBron James, Method Man, Jim Norton and Norman Lloyd:

"...since she was a little girl, it's been drilled into Amy's head by her rascal of a dad that 'monogamy isn't realistic'. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo, enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment...

"...But in actuality, she's kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she's writing, charming and successful sports doctor 'Aaron Conners', Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something. »
