Garland & Astaire Classic Musical 'Easter Parade' Coming to Warner Bros. Blu-ray in 2013

24 October 2012 11:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Fred Astaire-Judy Garland classic "Easter Parade" will be coming to Blu-ray for the first time on February 19, 2013. Featuring a wonderful collection of songs from Irving Berlin, the film follows an aging dancer (Astaire) whose relationship has gone sour with his dance and romance partner (Ann Miller), who's gone solo. Enter less polished up-and-comer Hannah Brown (Garland), glad to fill in his ex's shoes. Peter Lawford provides a shoulder for her to cry on when Astaire can't seem to let go of the flouncy bigger star. Mega-talents Astaire and Garland are both in top form here, and deliver some of the songs they're best known for (a feat in itself, given Garland's iconic roles in both "The Wizard of Oz" and "Meet Me in St. Louis," and Astaire's entire run with Ginger Rogers throughout the 1930s at Rko). "Easter Parade" is one of them--rotogravure anyone? "Steppin' Out with My Baby" features. »

24 October 2012 9:17 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 19, 2013

Price: Blu-ray $19.98

Studio: Warner Home Video

The high-definition Blu-ray debut of classic musical Easter Parade is a 65th anniversary gift.

Regularly on best film lists, the 1948 movie stars Fred Astaire and Judy Garland as dance partners who fall in love. But everything gets difficult when Astaire turns down a job in the Ziegfeld Follies for them because his former partner (Ann Miller) is already there.

Easter Parade includes songs by Irving Berlin, who also brought us White Christmas, and won an Academy Award for Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture.

The Blu-ray comes with the same special features that were on the DVD Special Edition released in 2005. That DVD has been discontinued, but some copies can still be found. Here’s the list of the extras:

Lauren Anne Miller and Ari Graynor want you to know that ‘For a Good Time, Call…’

12 September 2012 6:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For a Good Time, Call…

Directed by Jamie Travis

Written by Katie Anne Naylon and Lauren Anne Miller

U.S.A., 2012

When looking back at the past 10, maybe even 15 years in cinema, particularly American and English-language cinema, sex has become a hot topic ripe for comedy. Not that comedies in decades past played not role in movie comedies, but it is really only in cinema’s recent history that screenwriters and directors have really embraced the full extent to which all things that happen ‘in the sack’ can be conducive to big laughs. The sexual content in said films has always presented as something the characters, male or female (although typically the former) want to obtain by any means necessary. If 2012 is any indication, the nature of the sex comedy may be finding a different course to navigate, such as with the Jamie Travis directed comedy, For a Good Time, »

4 April 2012 9:23 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you have yet to join in the "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" series we urge you to participate next week on April 11th when we look at a movie you've surely seen: Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937). Last time we did an animated film we had a super turnout. All you have to do is 1) choose your favorite shot 2) post it on your blog, tumblr, site or pinterest page before next Wednesday night and 3) let me know. Presto, The Film Experience links up. The first step, choosing your best shot, is the only hard part.

Springtime for Homos: Our Nine Essential Springtime Movies

2 April 2012 10:46 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I'm going to shock you with my findings here, but I believe spring is the most underrepresented season in movies. "Summer" is practically its own genre, fall gets plenty of Halloween-themed flicks, and winter films are downright ubiquitous. Problem is, spring is the time of year when the worst movies come out, so it's difficult to pinpoint the season's best finds. Lo and behold, we've done it: Here are our nine favorite movies that remind us spring's sassy freshness. There's even baseball! I can't believe it either.

9. Ghost World

If you're like me, spring means one thing. Say it with me! A Strange, Isolating Weariness!

Yeah, it means other things too, but spring routinely brings me back to high school when graduation was near, motivation was far, and you couldn't escape that pervading languor. In Ghost World, Thora Birch played a disillusioned teenager named Enid Coleslaw whose cynicism gives way to a realistic, »

'Singin' in the Rain' 60th Anniversary: 25 Things You Didn't Know About Hollywood's Greatest Musical

29 March 2012 6:47 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a year when the Best Picture Oscar went to a comedy about Hollywood's turbulent transition from silence to sound, "Singin' in the Rain" suddenly seems timely again. The beloved musical, which marks the 60th anniversary of its release in U.S. theaters in April, is not only fondly remembered for its exuberantly athletic song-and-dance numbers, but also for its witty dramatization of the birth of Hollywood's sound era. If you haven't seen it, imagine 2011's "The Artist" with spoken dialogue and without the heroic dog. But of course, you have seen it, even if you don't realize it. The title number, featuring a soaked but joyful Gene Kelly, is one of the most iconic (and most frequently parodied) sequences in film history. The film's impact on popular culture is enormous, from making stars out of Debbie Reynolds and Cyd Charisse to influencing directors as far-flung as Jacques Demy and Stanley Kubrick. »

The history of MGM: the golden era

24 January 2012 3:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Zoe’s continues her journey through the turbulent history of one of Hollywood’s most influential studios, as we arrive at MGM's post-war golden era. Plus, a bit of 3D, too...

As the end of World War II approached, a new world dawned for MGM – a world which had changed dramatically. Attitudes and lifestyles had changed, but most importantly audiences had changed. Here was an opportunity: MGM’s chance to start afresh. And so in 1944, MGM embarked on what would become the most successful period in its history. After the war, the slate was wiped clean.

Gone were the tired, tried-and-tested formulas, and gone were the aging names and stars, as a new unit was established at MGM. It was up to this unit, anchored by an experienced producer and made up of bright young talent, to transform MGM’s signature high-production style into something new and modern in order »
