Watch ‘Pre-Code’ Hollywood films on TCM all month

3 September 2014 8:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tod Browning’s “Freaks

Before R-ratings, anti-heroes and gratuitous violence and nudity in mainstream Hollywood movies, there was the Hays Code. As a form of self-policing the industry, virtually every movie released up until 1968 needed that stamp of approval if it wanted distribution. And while it helped produce all of Old Hollywood’s true classics for several decades, it often included ridiculous rulings like not being able to show or flush a toilet on screen, not allowing married couples to be shown sleeping in the same bad or always making sure criminals, even protagonists of the movie, got punished in the end.

But before the Hays Code was nothing, and it was a gloriously weird, scandalous time for the movies. Certain Hollywood films in the early ’30s as “talkies” were rapidly taking hold have since been labeled “Pre-Code” films that never received Hollywood’s stamp of approval.

On TCM: Oscar Winner Colbert

18 August 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Claudette Colbert movies on Turner Classic Movies: From ‘The Smiling Lieutenant’ to TCM premiere ‘Skylark’ (photo: Claudette Colbert and Maurice Chevalier in ‘The Smiling Lieutenant’) Claudette Colbert, the studio era’s perky, independent-minded — and French-born — "all-American" girlfriend (and later all-American wife and mother), is Turner Classic Movies’ star of the day today, August 18, 2014, as TCM continues with its "Summer Under the Stars" film series. Colbert, a surprise Best Actress Academy Award winner for Frank Capra’s 1934 comedy It Happened One Night, was one Paramount’s biggest box office draws for more than decade and Hollywood’s top-paid female star of 1938, with reported earnings of $426,944 — or about $7.21 million in 2014 dollars. (See also: TCM’s Claudette Colbert day in 2011.) Right now, TCM is showing Ernst Lubitsch’s light (but ultimately bittersweet) romantic comedy-musical The Smiling Lieutenant (1931), a Best Picture Academy Award nominee starring Maurice Chevalier as a French-accented Central European lieutenant in »

Life After Beth Review

10 August 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Warm Bodies discovered the mainstream appeal of romance in a time of zombies, I’d been wondering how long it would take for other filmmakers to cash in on the rotting flesh of young love. Trying to love a zombie isn’t exactly the easiest feat, no matter how beautiful those cold, dead eyes look, but at least there’s hope throughout Warm Bodies, showing a zombie transforming back to his mortal form.

Jeff Baena’s Life After Beth is a role-reversal horror dramedy not about finding love, but instead losing love, finding it once again as a shambling zombie, and then somehow letting go. Beth Slocum inexplicably (Aubrey Plaza) comes back from the grave looking human enough, minus some heavy bags under her eyes and the snake bite that originally caused her death, and her grieving boyfriend Zach (Dane DeHaan) couldn’t be happier. But what starts »

Interview: 'Orange Is The New Black' star Uzo Aduba on Emmy hopes, Season 2 drama and more

4 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Life is a whirlwind for the stars of Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black." When they aren't journeying to Los Angeles to accept awards for the prison dramedy's first season which premiered in July 2013, they're still doing publicity for the second season which premiered in June 2014 and then, of course, there's the third "Orange Is The New Black" season, now in production. That meant there was a lot of ground to cover when I talked to Uzo Aduba last week, starting with thanking her for dropping by the TCA Awards ceremony in July (she joked on Twitter that she, Taylor Schilling, Kate Mulgrew and Danielle Brooks were furloughed). We talked about the Emmy process, which sees her going up against Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, including the selection of "Lesbian Request Denied" as her submission episode. And we discussed Aduba's journey in the second "Orange" season, »

Film Review: ‘The Reconstruction of William Zero’

21 July 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A genetic engineer tormented by the accidental death of his son resorts to cloning in “The Reconstruction of William Zero,” a basement mad-scientist movie from Dan Bush, one third of the team behind 2007’s “The Signal.” Cinematically speaking, this high-concept, low-budget sci-fi mind-bender falls into the same category as Shane Carruth’s shoestring marvel “Primer,” relying on creative ingenuity rather than elaborate effects to keep geek auds ensnared by its multi-layered mystery. But the more apt comparison seems to be with such literary classics as “The Invisible Man” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” in which tragedy strikes when mortals fool with Mother Nature.

Four years after backing over his son’s bicycle on the way to work, Next Corp scientist William Blakely (played by co-writer Conal Byrne) still hasn’t found a way to cope with the guilt of his negligence. After the accident, he abandoned his grieving wife, »

Warner Home Video Goes Nutty For "The Nutty Professor"; 50th Anniversary Gift Set Released

18 July 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Warner Home Video, in association with Paramount Pictures, is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Jerry Lewis' "The Nutty Professor" with the release of a deluxe Blu-ray gift set. The film is understandably Lewis' personal favorite- and with good reason. His clever comedic take on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde legend remains a remarkably inventive and funny film, with Lewis not only in the director's chair, but also giving a tour-de-force performance as the nerdy academic who manages to transform himself into a different kind of "monster"- a suave lady's man with a huge ego and no regard for the people in his life. In a personal letter included in the set, Lewis states: "This is a very special film with a lot of heart and soul. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing, directing, acting, editing, scoring and extensive promotion of the film. It is what I always dreamed »

Is This Truly the Cat From Hell? Expert Tries to Decipher Feisty Feline

13 June 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In theory, it certainly seemed like a match made in heaven - the world's leading cat behaviorist and the world's craziest cat. In reality, however, things turned out differently for Jackson Galaxy, host of the Animal Planet show My Cat From Hell, and a 22-lb. feline named Lux, who made headlines around the planet in March when he allegedly flipped out on his owners, forcing them to call 911 for help. "In the 20 years I've been doing this, I've never met a cat like Lux," Galaxy tells People of his time spent trying to help the troubled feline, which viewers can »

‘The Fly’: Man, Monster, Madness

4 June 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The very idea of what constitutes a legitimate movie monster is certainly open to interpretation. The flexibility of defining a monster on the big screen has no restrictions whatsoever and why should it? A majority of casual and seasoned moviegoers alike from all walks of life can probably on spontaneous command mention their ideal movie-bound monster…a confirmed menace to society that can take on reversed roles of badness and goodness, man and beast, human and machine or even vampire and werewolf. After all, the possibilities are endless. Monstrous figureheads that come in all shapes, sizes and species have intrigued, sickened, shocked and sometimes inspired our cinematic imaginations to the point of no return. In searching for that hideous misfit and the impact that they have on our celluloid consciousness we need to examine closely why the monster in question is such a fascinating and frightening enigma to behold?

Cannes Film Review: ‘Goodbye to Language’

21 May 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Contempt” meets “Lassie,” sort of, in Jean-Luc Godard’s “Goodbye to Language,” a characteristically vigorous, playful, mordant commentary on everything from the state of movies to the state of the world from French cinema’s oldest living enfant terrible. Its title notwithstanding, Godard’s 39th feature-length work proves its maker has plenty left to say and plenty of new ways of saying it, from its freewheeling use of multiple video formats to its radical experiments in 3D. For 69 densely packed minutes that feel like an adrenaline shot to the brain, “Goodbye” continually reaffirms that no single filmmaker has done more to test and reassert the possibilities of the moving image during the last half-century of the art form. All but those who wish Godard had never ventured past what he was doing circa 1968 should take much pleasure in the result, which will be in high demand on the festival and »

Ridley Scott Puts His Hand To Aliens In Egypt With HBO Series Pharoah

25 April 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You just can’t keep Ridley Scott away from aliens. Even though he’s spent a good portion of time dealing with Egypt for his upcoming film Exodus: Gods and Kings (which does not have aliens, I hope), the director has decided that he’s not done screwing around with that nation’s history.

Deadline is reporting that Scott is now signed on to direct and produce an hour-long HBO series titled Pharoah that will produce an – ahem – “alternative explanation for the foundation and ascent of the Egyptian Empire.” In other words: Egypt was founded by aliens.

The “Egyptian aliens” theme is not exactly new. Conspiracy theorists have tried for years to explain how it’s totally impossible for human beings to actually build the Pyramids (these theorists apparently don’t understand what the phrase “slave labor” means). The only explanation, therefore, is that aliens built the Egyptian Pyramids. Now, »

Aliens In Egypt: Ridley Scott To Produce And Direct Bonkers-Sounding ‘Pharaoh’ For HBO

25 April 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Fresh off delving into Biblical Egypt with the upcoming Christian Bale epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings," it seems Ridley Scott isn’t satisfied with leaving the location quite yet. The history of ancient Egypt is rife with mythology, mystery, and ingenious methods, but forget day-laborers, slipways, and chisels—when it comes to delving into the creation of the country, Scott has extraterrestrial help on his mind instead. Deadline reports Scott has attached himself to direct and executive produce “Pharaoh” for HBO, a new hour-long series that seeks to provide an “alternate explanation for the foundation and ascent of the ancient Egyptian empire”— meaning, all the alien help they received in order to thrive. Penning the project is writer David Schulner, who was last seen as creator, executive producer and showrunner of NBC’s “Do No Harm," a modern take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that was cancelled after just two episodes. »

10 Horror Movies That Won Academy Awards

27 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

It’s no secret that our beloved horror movies are often snubbed at the Academy Awards. The horror genre as a whole just doesn’t get all that much respect in the world of cinema, which is why it’s so important for us fans to support and spread the word on the movies we love. Quite frankly, if we're not doing it, nobody’s going to do it for us.

That said, there are a handful of horror movies over the years that have defied tradition, and have actually managed to snag themselves those little golden statues. With the 86th Academy Awards heading our way this weekend, today we shine the spotlight on 10 of those movies, which made all of us horror fans proud!

Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde

Though the Academy Awards ceremony wasn’t televised until 1953, it actually began way back in 1929, held at a private dinner party. »

'Pretty Little Liars' Ezra is not 'A': Why this reveal is more interesting and what should become of Ezria

20 February 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When "Pretty Little Liars" seemingly revealed Ezra to be evil mastermind "A" in last summer's midseason finale, it nearly broke the internet. The wailing and gnashing of teeth by Ezra-Aria (Ezria) fans could be heard worldwide.

However, Zap2it was never on board with Ezra being "A." It didn't make any sense for a number of reasons, not the least of which is how much creepy(er) and dark(er) it made him.

If Ezra was "A" this entire time, it would turn the whole Ezria relationship into something gross. It's one thing if Ezra and Aria met, he didn't know how old she was (and she lied by omission) and they fell in love. It's another thing entirely if he purposely sought out a relationship with an underage girl (a student, no less) in the name of stalking and tormenting her and her friends.

It turns out Ezra did exactly that, »

Classic Short Story Review: Neil Gaiman's 'A Study in Emerald'

20 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

“A Study in Emerald” is an interesting alternate universe story in which the world of Sherlock Holmes and the Hp Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos combine.      The version of the story that is available online at Neil Gaiman's site features ads throughout that are about other stories, such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The artwork is creative and fits nicely with the narrative.     The narrator of the story tells of his friend, a famous and respected detective in a society made “perfect” by the return and rule of the Old Ones. But all is not well. One of the royal family has been murdered, his green blood splattered across a room, with an ominous message written in the royal's gore.   As the story continues, the detective and narrator easily discover who the murderers are. However, catching them is not so simple. It turns out that they are just as smart, »

Pre-Code Hollywood: Gangsters, Monsters, and Dames

31 January 2014 7:20 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I must have been about 12 years old when I first saw Tarzan and His Mate. I loved the Tarzan movies. Tarzan was the undisputed King of the Jungle and was the greatest, Cheetah was man’s best friend, Boy was annoying, and Jane was the Queen of the Jungle and a young male’s introduction to the allure of the female. The uncensored version, with a naked Jane silhouetted while changing clothes in a backlit tent and the spectacular underwater ballet scene would have been a revelation to me; Tarzan and Jane are frolicking in their favorite swimming hole, Tarzan in his usual loincloth and Jane naked – not naked from the waste up, or presumed naked as they hid her behind some lake flora or rocks – Jane was naked.

Most film fans knowledge of Pre-Code Hollywood movies doesn’t go much further than King Kong, Frankenstein, and a few other titles. »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ makes a foundation for cinematic horror

27 January 2014 9:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Written by Robert Louis Stevenson, Clara Beranger, and Thomas Russell Sullivan

Directed by John S. Robertson

USA, 1920

During the silent era, the reinvention of visual horror allowed filmmakers and producers to experiment in film techniques that would become a mainstay in the genre’s mode of expression. Many of these relied heavily on makeup (Frankenstein, Dracula) or early pioneering special effects (The Haunted Castle, The Phantom Carriage), but some relied on more human sensibilities. Mere movement and facial expressions dominate the horrific tone in F. W. Murnau’s NosferatuMax Schreck’s grotesque, almost Korinian features have remained a cornerstone of vampiric imagery for nearly a century. In the same vein, John Barrymore managed a horror portrait in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that has left John S. Robertson’s vision of the Robert Louis Stevenson story a target for restoration and preservation against countless other Jekyll remakes. »
