Christopher Lee Talks Saruman in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

31 December 2011 10:03 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to return quite a few characters from The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy, but one of fandom's favorites is legendary actor Christopher Lee as Saruman.

While the character wasn't present in J.R.R. Tolkien's original novel, future literature noted that Saruman was quite active during the time of this adventure, and director Peter Jackson is going to focus on some of that history with his interpretation of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Over the holidays, Christopher Lee brought a special message to his fans, offering some insight into Saruman's plight in this new movie. He also speaks out on his appearances in Hugo, The Wicker Tree, and Dark Shadows.

Check out the video below.

This is what Christopher Lee had to say about Saruman in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Christopher’s Top 10 Trailers of 2011

30 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? I'll get this out of the way now: Harry Potter is not on this list. I only mention this as I was excoriated back in »

The Top Five Horror/Thriller Films of 2011!

29 December 2011 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

In no particular order, these are the stand out films that are worth adding to any video library. The set of criteria is simple: a standout performance by one or more of the first billed actors that can be re-watched time and time again. Their complexity is what defines the film. Also important is the type of chills or thrills the movie offers, and the story being told.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Dir.: Eli Craig.

Cast: Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk and Katrina Bowden.

Although this film is technically a 2010 product, it did not reach distribution until the following year. This one, like how some of the victims died in film, skips under the gun by being exceptionally funny with an adorable, luggable, teddy bear performance by Tyler Labine. This product is a better answer to a theatrical version of the Beverly Hillbillies. The clash of cultures is perfectly played up for laughs. »

Ed Burns planning another Irish-Catholic movie for Christmas 2012 (IrishCentral)

28 December 2011 5:45 AM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Irish American actor Ed Burns is reportedly working on a new project, this one being a holiday themed film about an Irish-Catholic family on Long Island. The film will follow in the footsteps of Burns’ typically Irish themed films such as, most specifically, his 1995 debut in ‘The Brothers McMullen.’ The new film, reports CinemaBlend, will be about a family with divorced parents on Long Island during Christmas. Though divorced, the father wants to come and spend the holidays with his family, causing tension amongst the siblings of the family. Ed Burns says of the film’s plot: “Half of the siblings still love him [the father] and half of them hate him and want nothing to do with him. The mother hates the father most of all and refuses to have him over for Christmas and the family has to figure out a way to convince the other siblings and their mom »

Clothes on Film’s 2011 Costume Design Round Up

27 December 2011 4:27 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

By no means intended as an exhaustive list, Clothes on Film ponder an overview of 2011 in costume. Concentrating on mainstream fare that those outside of big cities are likely to have seen, we consider which costumes delighted, surprised and best of all, enlightened us. Expect to spot Drive, Melancholia and Hugo on this list somewhere.

Costume encompasses every item of clothing worn on film. By strict definition costume is not ‘wardrobe’; wardrobe is what Oprah Winfrey wore on her talk show. While at Clothes on Film we embrace all forms of costume, we do have a slight bias for contemporary, although only because it is often underrepresented in the face of (admittedly dazzling) period or fantasy wear. This roundup will comprise both period and contemporary, but »

Year in Review: The 11 Best Action Films of 2011

26 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some other sites or site runners may look down on lists, but those people are what are known as no-fun douche bags, because really, lists are awesome. They are short, easy to digest little morsels that you can wash down with a carbonated beverage, argue about, and take recommendations from. If you don’t like lists, you are worse than Hitler. You know what’s better than Hitler? Lots of stuff, like peanut butter cookies with little peanut butter cups pressed into them. That, and also these ten action movies, which are my favorite for the year. Yeah, you’ll probably disagree, so comment below or get your own damn website. 11. Hanna Eric Bana is a secret action star with a few good turns in a couple of flicks, but in Hanna he really gets to shine as an ass kicking secret agent. That being said, it’s the young Saoirse Ronan who really brings home the »

The Truffles 2011 – The HeyUGuys Movie Awards – Part 1

21 December 2011 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Back for their third year we are proud to present the annual HeyUGuys movie awards – The Truffles.

At the end of each year our wonderful team of writers like to round up the various movieland highs and lows into our own unique categories, to reward the diverse, the challenging and the downright lovely and both tar and feather the cinematic outcasts which offended, disgusted and just plain irritated us.

It has been a tremendous year with some intriguing debuts and some howling missteps from seasonal filmmakers. We had planets colliding, blocks attacked, apes rising and the usual spew of remakes, sequels, prequels and the rest.

Here’s our take on the filmic landscape after a whole year of 2011.

First up on stage…
