11 of action cinema's great movie villain pairings

25 February 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From early Bond to 21st century sci-fi, here's Ryan's pick of 11 unforgettable villain pairings from action cinema history...

You're generally lucky if a movie has one genuinely great villain in it, let alone two. This is probably because creating a villain takes great acting and writing - it's one thing to create a preening character who stomps around a story doing unpleasant things, but creating a villain who's three-dimensional, witty, scary and above all memorable requires considerable skill.

Every so often, a movie comes along which gives us not one, but two classic villains, with the personality of one complementing the other. A familiar dynamic was once laid out by Steven Spielberg: one is smart and eloquent , while the other is the tougher, more violent of the pair. It's a template that we've seen time and again in cinema, but it's only occasionally that both characters leap from the screen. »

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #22. Antonio Campos (James White)

26 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries” …

Antonio Campos: Black Mirror (TV series). People Who Eat Darkness (Book). Nilsson Schmilsson by Harry Nilsson (album).

Lavallee: Christopher Abbott plays the titular James White (he has also contributed to two other films in your canon). What facets/traits was Josh Mond looking for in his lead?

Campos: A better looking version of himself.

Lavallee: The Borderline Films crew have a knack for unearthing talent (we’ve seen the likes of Rosemarie DeWitt, Ezra Miller, Zoe Lister Jones, Elizabeth Olsen, David Call, Emory Cohen, Michael Stuhlbarg) make debuts parading through your films. Could you discuss the casting process and ultimately, are the roles assigned by a jury vote of three?

Campos: We trust our casting directors when they say someone is great. When it comes to actually auditioning, we’ve learned so much over the years from Susan Shopmaker on »

New on Video: ‘Skidoo’

5 January 2015 8:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Skidoo

Written by Doran William Cannon

Directed by Otto Preminger

USA, 1968

Of the nearly 70 films I’ve written about in this column, I would whole-heartedly recommend each without reservation, to not only watch, but to spend good money on. With 1968′s Skidoo, out now on a new Olive Films Blu-ray, I’m breaking that tradition. I wouldn’t suggest anyone purchase this film, though everyone should see it. This is a most unusual, absolutely indefinable, wholly unique motion picture.

I initially viewed Skidoo on the sole basis of its starring Alexandra Hay, who I’ve been smitten with since first seeing her in Jacques Demy’s Model Shop, released the following year. On this point, Skidoo succeeds. Hay is a delightful beauty, charming in a way that is very much of the era. Admittedly unfamiliar with her biography, I can’t imagine why she didn’t have more of a career. »
