Movies We Hate: Forrest Gump

4 April 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I wish that I could love Forrest Gump. I promise, I do. For those reading this from under the comfy confines of a rock, Forrest Gump is the endearing odyssey of the lovable and mentally handicapped titular character played by Tom Hanks. After overcoming a crippling physical handicap as a child, he falls in love with Jenny Curran, (Robin Wright) a woman with prototypical daddy issues, who chooses to oppose “the man” in every way possible. Although his penultimate goal is to marry this wonderful woman, Forrest somehow finds the time to serve in Vietnam, own a shrimp boat, create many memorable and iconic images, and meet various historical figures.

Now, as an avid reader of film essays and cinematic critique, I’m sure you’re befuddled. How can anyone hate Forrest Gump? The answer is simple: the film is the embodiment of the things I like least in life. »

Al Pacino Retrospective - The Insider

23 March 2014 3:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb continues our Al Pacino Retrospective with The Insider....

Working together on Heat (only four years prior to The Insider) meant that Al Pacino and Michael Mann clearly had chemistry worth exploring. Replacing the action-sequences with political intrigue and tense paranoia meant this could hardly be billed as a follow-up. The Insider tackles the big business of tobacco and the ongoing contradiction of American capitalism – whereby the almighty dollar trumps justice. Except in this case, investigative journalism alongside the justice system mounted a campaign that resulted in a $368 billion settlement between the four largest tobacco companies in America. Suffice to say, Brown and Williamson – the ‘villainous’ company at the centre of The Insider – merged with Reynolds American in 2004 and is still the second-largest tobacco company in the states.

Written by Eric Roth and Michael Mann, The Insider dramatizes the events leading to the aforementioned campaign. Whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigand (Russell Crowe »

Kevin Spacey isn't just the star of "House of Cards," playing silky master manipulator Francis "Frank" Underwood, who with the help of his equally formidable wife Claire (Robin Wright) has been ruthlessly climbing the political rungs of Washington, D.C.

This time, the producer has the Joel and Ethan Coen-directed Inside Llewyn Davis, financed independently and distributed by CBS Films, and the Paul Greengrass-directed Captain Phillips, funded by Rudin’s home studio Sony Pictures.

Paul Mazursky will receive the Writers Guild of America West’s 2014 Screen Laurel Award to honor his lifetime achievement in outstanding writing for motion pictures.

Mazursky will receive the honor at the Writers Guild Awards West Coast ceremony on Feb. 1 at the Jw Marriott Los Angeles.

Paul Mazursky’s talents as an actor (he was in Stanley Kubrick’s first film) and filmmaker (one of the signature directors of the 1970s) should not be allowed to obscure a central fact: he is among our greatest living screenwriters,” said WGA West VP Howard Rodman. “‘Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,’ ‘Blume in Love,’ ‘Harry and Tonto,’ ‘Next Stop, Greenwich Village,’ ‘An Unmarried Woman’ – five films in six years, any of which can make you laugh and cry, break and mend your heart. His voice is strong, unique, hilarious, wise, unmistakable.”
