“The murderer is right in this room. Sitting at this table. You may serve the fish.”

'Game of Thrones' Recap: 'The Dance of Dragons' Sets Fire to Our Hearts

7 June 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Are you not entertained? Or at least traumatized? Maybe both? "Game of Thrones" has 10 episodes per season and the penultimate episode, Episode 9, is always a doozy. Season 5's Episode 9, "The Dance of Dragons," continued that tradition.

Last week's "Hardhome" was an epic masterpiece, and it was hard to see how Episode 9 could even match it. Well, if you want to beat ice, you'd better bring fire -- so how 'bout that dragon fire? Daenerys Targaryen ended "The Dance of Dragons" by riding the back of her biggest (but still kinda small?) dragon, Drogon, leaving her friends stuck in the fighting pit. See ya, guys!

That sequence was from the books, and yet had some serious changes (sorry for blaming you for everything, Hizdahr) and the rest of Episode 9 included mostly new stuff that broke our hearts. Shireen. Sweet Shireen. One of the only characters on "Game of Thrones" that was »

Review: 'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Episode 8: The Dead Rise in 'Hardhome'

1 June 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Previously: Review: 'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Episode 7 'The Gift' Doesn't Bounce Back From Last Week's Trauma Post-"Game" AnalysisAfter last week's episode, which meandered in and out of too many story lines and jumped around with little development in each, it was great that this episode, “Hardhome,” focused on a select few that actually went somewhere. In King's Landing, Cersei discovered the meaning of suffering. In Braavos, a girl finally became someone else. In Meereen, two our our favorite characters finally sat down to talk (over wine!). And North of The Wall, well... those blue eyes might just haunt some dreams tonight. Most Magical MomentArya has finally learned the fine art of lying. She's become Lana, salesgirl of fresh oysters. Naturally the identity is a ruse, as becoming someone else is merely a way to get to "The Thin Man," who has earned the ire of Jaqen. The set up of this entire sequence, »

Remembering the Unjustly Forgotten Tony Winner, Shaw's 'Perfect' Saint Joan and Acclaimed O'Neill Performer

18 May 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Saint Joan': Constance Cummings as the George Bernard Shaw heroine Constance Cummings on stage: George Bernard Shaw, William Shakespeare and Benn W. Levy (See previous post: "Constance Cummings: Actress Went from Harold Lloyd to Eugene O'Neill.") In the mid-1930s, Constance Cummings landed the title roles in two of husband Benn W. Levy's stage adaptations: Levy and Hubert Griffith's Young Madame Conti (1936), from Bruno Frank's original, which was presented on both sides of the Atlantic. (On Broadway, the play had a brief run in spring 1937 at the Music Box Theatre.) The Theatre Guild-produced Madame Bovary (1937), from the Gustave Flaubert novel, staged in late fall at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre. Referring to the London production of Young Madame Conti, The Sunday Times critic James Agate wrote that the American actress had made "a roaring success out of what in other hands might so easily have been an inarticulate, »

Remembering Pretty, Sophisticated Cummings: From Minor Lloyd Leading Lady to Olivier Co-Star, Tony Award Winner

17 May 2015 8:21 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Constance Cummings: Actress in minor Hollywood movies became major British stage star Constance Cummings: Actress went from Harold Lloyd and Frank Capra to Noël Coward and Eugene O'Neill Born on May 15, 1910, actress Constance Cummings, whose career spanned about six decades on stage, in films, and on television in both the U.S. and the U.K., would have turned 105 this year. Unlike other Broadway imports such as Ann Harding, Katharine Hepburn, and Claudette Colbert, the pretty, elegant Cummings – who could have been turned into a less edgy Constance Bennett had she landed at Rko or Paramount instead of Columbia – never became a Hollywood star. In fact, her most acclaimed work, whether in films or – more frequently – on stage, was almost invariably found in British productions. That's most likely why the name Constance Cummings – despite the DVD availability of several of her best-received stage performances – is all but forgotten. »

Wright Minibio Pt.2: Hitchcock Heroine in His Favorite Movie

6 March 2015 8:28 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt': Alfred Hitchcock heroine (image: Joseph Cotten about to strangle Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt') (See preceding article: "Teresa Wright Movies: Actress Made Oscar History.") After scoring with The Little Foxes, Mrs. Miniver, and The Pride of the Yankees, Teresa Wright was loaned to Universal – once initial choices Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland became unavailable – to play the small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt. (Check out video below: Teresa Wright reminiscing about the making of Shadow of a Doubt.) Co-written by Thornton Wilder, whose Our Town had provided Wright with her first chance on Broadway and who had suggested her to Hitchcock; Meet Me in St. Louis and Junior Miss author Sally Benson; and Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville, Shadow of a Doubt was based on "Uncle Charlie," a story outline by Gordon McDonell – itself based on actual events. »

From 'The Thin Man' to 'Dogfight': A broken-hearted Valentine's playlist

14 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It has not been an easy week. At the start of the week, we had our editorial meeting here at HitFix, as we do every Monday, to talk about both the week ahead and longer-term projects as well. For fairly obvious reasons, there was a fair amount of talk about Valentine's Day content, and I mentioned a few different ideas that I might write about, including one that I'll end up publishing at some point about Steve Martin. But even as I pitched a few ideas, I found myself uncomfortable with the entire idea of writing about romantic films right now. Honestly, I was hoping to spend this week with my head down and then just sail right through this weekend without writing about love at all, because for the first time in my adult life, I am no longer sure what I think about it. After all, I was with my wife for 14 years. »

'It Happened One Night' (1934) - Best Movies #8

22 January 2015 11:25 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The above exchange from Frank Capra's romantic gem It Happened One Night doesn't necessarily give you any insight into the plot. Without the knowledge of what came before, or the visual of Claudet Colbert as spoiled sophisticate Ellie Andrews warily climbing into the car with the man she's traveled alongside from Florida to New York City, the joke probably doesn't pack much of an umph. But once you've seen this 1935 Best Picture winner as many times as I have, you never know which lines will jump out and make you laugh more than you previously did in the past. It Happened One Night is one of those wonderful Hollywood accidents. Neither Colbert nor her co-star, Clark Gable, were the first choices for the lead roles. In fact, it wasn't until Colbert won for Best Actress that she publicly thanked Capra for making the film (despite not even attending the Oscars, »
