Several of Grant's Best Films Tonight on TCM

8 December 2014 5:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Cary Grant movies: 'An Affair to Remember' does justice to its title (photo: Cary Grant ca. late 1940s) Cary Grant excelled at playing Cary Grant. This evening, fans of the charming, sophisticated, debonair actor -- not to be confused with the Bristol-born Archibald Leach -- can rejoice, as no less than eight Cary Grant movies are being shown on Turner Classic Movies, including a handful of his most successful and best-remembered star vehicles from the late '30s to the late '50s. (See also: "Cary Grant Classic Movies" and "Cary Grant and Randolph Scott: Gay Lovers?") The evening begins with what may well be Cary Grant's best-known film, An Affair to Remember. This 1957 romantic comedy-melodrama is unusual in that it's an even more successful remake of a previous critical and box-office hit -- the Academy Award-nominated 1939 release Love Affair -- and that it was directed »

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

Watergate Editor at the Movies: From 'President's' to Supporting Role in 'Born Yesterday'

6 November 2014 6:11 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ben Bradlee movies: From 'All the President's Men' to 'Born Yesterday' (photo: Jason Robards as 'The Washington Post' executive editor Ben Bradlee in 'All the President's Men') Former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee aka Benjamin C. Bradlee, best known for his key role in the Watergate scandal that destroyed the Richard Nixon presidency, and who was later played by Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner Jason Robards in Alan J. Pakula's film version of All the President's Men, died of "natural causes" last October 21, 2014, at his home in Washington, D.C. Bradlee, who had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease, was 93. The Washington Post of the 21st century may look increasingly like a more pedantic version of the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid New York Post, but things weren't always like that. Back in the days when the American media — at least some of the time — actually bothered reporting news »

'Problem Child' TV Show Happening with 'Hangover 2' Writer

16 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today's 90s nostalgia story finds the hit comedy Problem Child being adapted for TV by Scot Armstrong, the writer behind The Hangover Part II and Old School.

NBC is developing Problem Child as a single-camera sitcom. The comedy will be based on the original Problem Child released in 1990, starring John Ritter, Jack Warden, Amy Yasbeck, Michael Richards and Michael Oliver as the title character. Originally envisioned as an R rated romp, the final film was rated PG and took a more family friendly stance on the story of an adopted 7 year-old child, compared to Damien from The Omen, who can't keep himself out of trouble. The first film was a big hit, grossing $72 million on a $10 million budget.

Problem Child was followed by the 1991 sequel Problem Child 2 and continued on in the 1995 sequel Problem Child 3. There was also a short lived animated TV series that launched in 1993.

Trailers from Hell on 'Being There'

1 September 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The brilliant chameleon Peter Sellers turns in his greatest (and penultimate) performance in this low-key satire about politics and the cult of personality. Or in this case, the lack of personality: as Chance, a gentle shut-in untouched by the outside world except for what little knowledge he’s gleaned from TV, Sellers turns in a studious portrait of a completely vacant man. Directed by Hal Ashby from Jerzy Kozinski’s 1970 novel, the film co-stars Shirley MacLaine, Jack Warden and, in an Oscar-winning performance, Melvyn Douglas. »

“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

DVD Review: "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure" (1979) Starring Michael Caine, Sally Field And Telly Savalas

26 May 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Seven years after his blockbuster success producing the 1972 film The Poseidon Adventure, Irwin Allen revisited the same story for a sequel, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure. The 1979 film represents all the reasons that sequels to most hit films are generally disdained. Yes, there was The Godfather trilogy to buck the trend, but there were also those God-awful sequels to Jaws. Beyond the Poseidon Adventure opens the morning after the capsizing of the cruise ship. Michael Caine is Mike Turner, the financially destitute captain of a small vessel who is facing bankruptcy after losing his cargo in the same violent storm that destroyed The Poseidon. On board his boat are his first mate Wilbur (Karl Malden) and Celeste Whitman (Sally Field), a perky but klutzy young drifter the men have befriended. They stumble upon the capsized wreck of the Poseidon and Turner immediately smells financial opportunity in the tragedy. »

Defending the '12 Worst Muppets Ever'

21 March 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The folks at io9 drew up a list of the 12 worst Muppets. It should disturb and haunt you, but not because the list is correct: It berates quirky and forgotten Muppets when their weirdness often represents more than what meets the eye. Surely there are annoying Muppet qualities, but that's the joy of the Muppets: They are annoying. To condemn their grating qualities is to misunderstand what makes them cool and even defiant. Tina Fey shakes her head in contempt. So without further ado, I'm defending the 12 "Least Wanted" Muppets. I'm already so flustered and squawky that you'd think I was voiced by Frank Oz.  1. Pepe the Prawn Latin stereotypes abounding? Perhaps. But Pepe the Prawn's exasperated, self-conscious behavior is more reminiscent of the wonderful Telly Monster than anyone else. You don't hate Telly, do you? Wow. Maybe you hate Telly. And are you telling me you can resist that frantic, »
