David O. Russell’s Hot Streak

31 December 2013 3:23 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert


If David O. Russell gets nominated for Best Director this year, he will have accomplished something that Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola and many other great directors have not–that is, to earn three Best Director nominations in the span of only four years. In fact, only eleven other directors have been on comparable hot streaks in Academy Award history, and only one of those streaks (by Clint Eastwood) has occurred after 1960. (See below for reference.)

This is not a comparison of overall quality or career prolificity (not many can bout with Scorsese, Allen, Hitchcock and Coppola in those categories), but merely a tribute to Russell’s ultra-concentrated efforts in the past four years and a recognition of the difficulty of this feat. It’s also a relevant because it might shed some light on previous Oscar trends and on what we »

Philomena: a rare portrayal of the Catholic Church's failings

4 November 2013 8:32 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Stephen Frears's film about an Irish woman, played by Judi Dench, who is trying to trace the child that was taken from her reveals the sins and the secret strength of the religion

• Video interview: Steve Coogan and Martin Sixsmith on Philomena

• The film reviewed in the Guardian, the Observer & on video

As the world's biggest, oldest, most influential and perhaps most colourful institution of any kind, the Catholic church has surely merited more attention than cinema has accorded it. Angels & Demons and Habemus Papam gave a hint of the possibilities, and that somewhat minor branch of pastoral activity, exorcism, has been more than adequately explored. Otherwise, we've had saintly but boring priests such as those of The Bells of St Mary's and Angels with Dirty Faces or absurdly delightful nuns like those in The Sound of Music and The Nun's Story.

In part, the prevalence of such sympathetic »

San Diego Comic-Con 2013 - Defiance Cast Interview

1 August 2013 12:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Jaime Murray, Julie Benz, Jesse Rath, Stephanie Leonidas and Tony Curran and video game producer Rob Hill discuss the hit sci-fi series in this exclusive interview from San Diego Comic-Con 2013 by david j. moore....

SyFy's television show Defiance has had a successful first season run, with an equally successful videogame launch from Trion Worlds. The show, which has run for twelve episodes, covered an enormous amount of ground, introducing dozens of characters - human and alien - all of whom shared a post-apocalyptic Earth as their home. Set in the rebuilding city-state community of Defiance, on the outskirts of St. Louis, the program focuses on a core group of humans and aliens who co-exist some years after an alien invasion rendered most of Earth a dilapidated ruin. Earth, a terra formed apocalyptic remnant of what it used to be, is now inhabited by aliens known as Castithans and Irathients, »

Tony Curran and Jaime Murray Talk With About the Tarrs of Defiance

20 May 2013 2:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

If there’s a power couple in Defiance, it is the Tarrs, Datak and Stahma. Will we be seeing them continue to gain advantages or will we be seeing a shakeup? Tony Curran and Jaime Murray took some time to speak with the media recently, including, giving us some insight into their characters, and a few hints of what’s to come.

They were clearly enjoying chatting with each other as much as with all of us. Now make sure to imagine them saying these things in their native accents – Tony Curran is Scottish, Jaime Murray is English – to get the true sense of it: Hi, thanks so much for being on the call today. I was already a big fan of the work of each of you so I’m so glad you’ve been given such great parts in Defiance. And I’ve got »

What I Watched, What You Watched #192

12 May 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was able to watch quite a bit this week, finally finishing the last of Pierre Etaix's films -- As Long as You've Got Your Health and Land of Milk and Honey -- on Criterion's recent Blu-ray release, though I must admit, Land of Milk and Honey did nothing for me and it was the only one of the five features on the release I didn't finish, while I did watch all three of the included shorts. Also, the night after watching The Great Gatsby, I returned to the twenties with the 1939 James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart film The Roaring Twenties. While the title may suggest a shoot 'em up gangster flick, it does have those elements, but it was much slower than I expected, which isn't to say it was bad, simply it wasn't what I was necessarily craving at that moment. I'm sure I'll return to it, »

With Durbin Gone, Who's Still Around from the '30s?

7 May 2013 3:41 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Oscar winners Olivia de Havilland and Luise Rainer among movie stars of the 1930s still alive With the passing of Deanna Durbin this past April, only a handful of movie stars of the 1930s remain on Planet Earth. Below is a (I believe) full list of surviving Hollywood "movie stars of the 1930s," in addition to a handful of secondary players, chiefly those who achieved stardom in the ensuing decade. Note: There’s only one male performer on the list — and curiously, four of the five child actresses listed below were born in April. (Please scroll down to check out the list of Oscar winners at the 75th Academy Awards, held on March 23, 2003, as seen in the picture above. Click on the photo to enlarge it. © A.M.P.A.S.) Two-time Oscar winner and London resident Luise Rainer (The Great Ziegfeld, The Good Earth, The Great Waltz), 103 last January »

Don One: Who Makes The Cut For Thn’s Gangster Squad?

21 April 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To complement the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Ruben Fleischer’s all-star period crime-thriller, Gangster Squad, Thn have picked our own top team of organised crime figures from the world of cinema; both fictional and factual. The genre is well defined thanks to early Cagney classics, Coppola’s legendary Corleone trilogy and Scorcese’s blood-soaked biopics. We’ve assembled quite an eclectic collection of memorable members, from low-level hoods, to fierce footsoldiers, unpredictable capo’s and of course, one don to rule them all!

One quick rule before we begin: a film or actor can feature no more than twice.

So, let’s take a look and see who sleeps with the fishes and who’s king of the hill in our dream team!

Luca Brasi (The Godfather) 1971

Make him an offer he can’t refuse and this hulking, simple-minded, yet faithful hatchet man will follow orders, even if it costs him his life. »

The Catholic Church on film: When the men in black lost their role as the good guys

11 February 2013 6:25 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

In old Hollywood films, you rarely come across a bad Catholic. Picture Bing Crosby as the kind-hearted Father O'Malley trying to have a school saved from closing down in The Bells of St Mary's (1945) or Pat O'Brien as the priest striving to keep kids away from crime – and his old friend James Cagney's bad example – in Angels With Dirty Faces (1938.) »

Warner Bros.' 90th Anniversary: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Fabled Hollywood Studio

28 January 2013 11:06 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Whether you think of Warner Bros. as the studio that gave you talking pictures, Bugs Bunny, Bogart, or Batman, you have to acknowledge the studio's place at the forefront of Hollywood history. Indeed, it'll be hard to avoid acknowledging it this year, as the studio will be spending 2013 celebrating its 90th birthday. The celebration kicks off with the release of two massive boxed sets of 50-plus discs each, both entitled the "Best of Warner Bros." -- a 100-film set of DVDs and a 50-film set of Blu-rays. Both sets encompass the studio's milestones of the entire sound film era, which Warners itself kicked off in 1927 with the release of "The Jazz Singer." (The sets go all the way up to the 2010 classic-to-be "Inception.") As familiar as these movies are, there's still plenty you may not know about the legendary movie studio, from who the actual Warner Brothers were, to the stars the studio minted, »

Six Of The Best – The Directors – Howard Hawks

15 January 2013 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

At the risk of stating the obvious and redundant, there are a lot of directors out there and so this series could merrily run for years, but in the interests of avoiding modern-centricity (yes, it’s a word. I know it is because I thought of it just now) let’s tuck into the resumé of Howard Hawks, who covered an astonishing amount of ground during his 44-year career, not only navigating the stylistic transition to sound, but moving from genre to genre while still delivering some of the best-regarded films of those genres.

Crime films, screwball comedies, westerns, melodrama – a truly versatile director who has left a CV peppered with bona fide classics. If you’re not sure, let me show you…………..

1. His Girl Friday

We have to start here. Not necessarily because it is his best film (though if it is not, it cannot be far off) but »
