I’ll Be Seeing You

This unusually sensitive, overlooked WW2 romance skips the morale-boosting baloney of the day. Two people meet on a train, each with a personal shame they dare not speak of. Ginger Rogers and Joseph Cotten are excellent under William Dieterle’s direction, and Shirley Temple doesn’t do half the damage you’d think she might.

You Know You Love It: 10 On-Set Secrets from Gossip Girl
Hey, Upper East Siders. Gossip Girl, here.

It’s been 10 years since the titular online menace from the CW’s teen drama first began wreaking havoc on the fictional teen members of Manhattan’s elite, and Vanity Fair is taking a look back on the beloved series.

Here are the 10 biggest revelations from Vanity Fair’s Gossip Girl 10th anniversary interview.

What Did That Game of Thrones Teaser Reveal? We Have Some Bad News . . .

  • BuzzSugar
Praise the old gods and the new! After a viral Facebook Live reveal that lasted longer than an actual episode, we've finally been given a taste of Game of Thrones season seven . . . and it's already shaping up to be the wildest one yet. No, it's not just because it's been the longest waiting period for a season in the show's history; we analyzed every single symbol in the under-two-minute teaser, and holy sh*t, it spells serious bad news for everyone in the Seven Kingdoms. Let's review, shall we? "There's only one war that matters. The Great War. And it is here." The teaser opens with Daenerys discussing her father, The Mad King Aerys, while a three-headed Targaryen dragon ominously revolves on screen. Then, the teaser moves on to other major house sigils made from stone (that also slightly resembles wrought-iron, a là the Iron Throne). While sound clips from

Nostalgia Ain’T What It Used To Be

Nostalgia just ain’t what it used to be.

When the poster for American Graffiti (1973) asked the question “Where were you in ’62?” it was marketing a trend, spiked by the increasing popularity of the theatrical musical Grease, for audiences of a certain age to look backward to a time when life wasn’t ostensibly so complicated, when your life was still out there waiting to be lived, to a time when America hadn’t yet “lost its innocence.” The demarcation point for that alleged loss is often assigned to the upheaval of grief and national confusion experienced in the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963, so it was no accident that the setting for American Graffiti’s night of cruising, romancing and soul-searching was placed a little over a year before that cataclysmic event. The interesting thing about Graffiti was the aggressiveness with which that

Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: 2016 Edition

I’m guessing that you, just like most of us, have always had seasonal favorites when it comes to movies that attempt to address and evoke the spirit of Christmas. Like most from my generation, when I was a kid I learned the pleasures of perennial anticipation of Christmastime as interpreted by TV through a series of holiday specials, like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and even musical variety hours where the likes of Bing Crosby and Andy Williams and Dean Martin et al would sit around sets elaborately designed to represent the ideal Christmas-decorated living room, drinking “wassail” (I’m sure that’s what was in those cups) and crooning classics of the season alongside a dazzling array of guests. (We knew we were moving into a new world of holiday cheer when David Bowie joined Bing Crosby for

Remember the Night; Brotherhood; The Purge: Election Year; War Dogs and more – review

A neglected Preston Sturges Christmas classic is the highlight of a week of grim movies best left until after Boxing Day

Christmas, unbelievably, is almost upon us, and with it an annual playlist of endlessly watched, endlessly renewable films – an entirely personal matter of curation, whether it covers It’s a Wonderful Life, The Shop Around the Corner or The Muppet Christmas Carol. (I, meanwhile, am looking forward to my first year of being able to savour the yuletide melancholy of Todd Haynes’s Carol in my own living room: bring on the jingling bells and the mournfully yearning strings.)

Over at the BFI Player, however, I recently made the acquaintance of a film that deserves as much December ubiquity as any of the above, yet remains oddly neglected in the archives. Blessed with a characteristically brut champagne script by Preston Sturges, Mitchell Leisen’s Remember the Night is special

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds: Inside Their Cozy Family Life Outside of Hollywood

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds: Inside Their Cozy Family Life Outside of Hollywood
They’re one of Hollywood’s cutest couples — but Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds enjoy family life far away from the lights of Los Angeles.

The couple, who married in September 2012, have a cozy country life with their two daughters at their idyllic home in Bedford, New York — spending time running errands in town, horseback riding, dining at local restaurants and hosting holiday gatherings in their backyard.

They purchased the property, valued at more than $2 million, in January 2012 after just six months of dating. The affluent town is also home to Ralph Lauren, Bruce Willis, and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: Krampus And More!

Despite its rampaging monster approach to the holiday season and the imposing, sort-of terrifying giant horned goat-man who provides its title, Krampus isn’t, at heart, an anti-Christmas picture-- it has at least one bloodshot eye pitched toward seasonal classic status. The movie’s story is centered on a family at war with itself—semi-sophisticated suburbanites Adam Scott and Toni Collette and their kids hosting a clan of boorish, right-wing Walmart-warrior relatives headed up by David Koechner and Alison Tolman— who finds itself besieged by the impish and deadly forces of Krampus, the flip-side of holiday cheer, Darth Vader to Santa’s Obi-wan. When the only child left in the family who still clings to his belief in Santa Claus has the last vestiges of Christmas spirit (here so defined as the will to make sacrifices for the good of others) derided out of him, he tears up his last

NYC Weekend Watch: Todd Haynes, ‘1941,’ ‘Gun Crazy,’ ‘Battleship Potemkin’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

15 Best Ever February Wrestling Matches

WWE.com

With the majority of WWE fans now having access to the WWE Network, which combines with YouTube and other online services to supply everyone with a vast digital wrestling library, we have never had easier access to watching matches from the past and present. Viewing matches from years gone by is a way to inform, to inspire, to celebrate, and to study. To whatever end you choose, let this and future lists serve as a viewer’s guide to pro wrestling history.

Where does the greatest match of the 1980s rank against “The greatest WrestleMania match that did not actually take place at WrestleMania”? Which iconic Mick Foley masterpiece vaulted to the top, leaving its cousin wanting? What underrated super heavyweight found his match placed ahead of much more traditionally heralded performances from the world’s most dominant wrestling promotion? Did a currently floundering promotion earn a match on the list?

Love Christmas Movies? Here Are All the New DVDs and Blu-rays You Need to Know About

  • Movies.com
It’s officially That Time of Year, the only time when your grocery store carries eggnog, when wearing a sweater with a light-up reindeer on it seems like a good idea, and when Andy Williams and Johnny Mathis find themselves getting serious radio airplay. It’s also the season for DVD companies to dig into the vaults and find cool treasures that fit perfectly into the Christmas season. Christmas Movies: A long-buried vintage classic that has recently reemerged as a popular favorite – and if my holiday movie guide Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas played even a tiny role in that, then I’m thrilled – is 1940’s Remember the Night (TCM/Universal), which makes its Blu-ray debut this year.

Dallas Finale Recap: Fall in the Family

Dallas Finale Recap: Fall in the Family
Operation: Save the Ewings went off (relatively) without a hitch on Monday’s two-hour Dallas season finale, but as we all know, victory tends to be short-lived at Southfork.

As promised, the finale claimed the life of a Ewing family member, though not the one most fans predicted. In the episode’s final moments, a car explosion — possibly a marketing ploy for TNT’s new “boom” slogan — burnt poor Christopher to a crisp. A Crisp-topher, if you will.

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of Barbara Stanwyck

  • MUBI
Above: Us poster for Forbidden (Frank Capra, USA, 1932)

In honor of the month-long retrospective of the films of the great Barbara Stanwyck starting today at Film Forum in New York, I thought I’d select my favorite Stanwyck posters. Brooklyn-born Ruby Catherine Stevens made 85 films over 37 years in Hollywood so there is an awful lot to choose from. But the remarkable thing about looking back at these posters is how artists seemed to have had a hard time capturing her likeness. The poster for one of her earliest films, Capra’s 1932 Forbidden, above, captures her beautifully, but the poster for Stella Dallas (1937), her first Oscar-nominated role (she never won, shockingly), seems to be of a different actress entirely. As for the sexed-up illustration on the flyer for The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933), in that she looks more like Jean Harlow. Some of my favorite posters for her films are the Swedish and Danish designs,

Remember the Stanwyck

Fans of Classic Hollywood Goddesses will want to check out The Barbara Stanwyck Blog-a-thon which is apparently going on all this week.

A Lot of articles are scheduled and some are already up including a tribute to her sparkling hot costume in Ball of Fire (1941, my second favorite Babs performance!) and a litle Christmas in July action with Remember the Night (1940). I wish I'd known about this one in time to join. It was really fun to write and read about Double Indemnity earlier this summer and Stanwyck has a highly discussable extensive body of work that stretches all the way from classic 1930s Pre-Code talkies on through to hugely popular 1980s television soaps like The Thorn Birds and Dynasty. Anyone remember her on those?

Black Christmas

Black Christmas (the 1974 version of course), generally acknowledged as the forerunner of the ‘slasher’. genre, is so graphic in its imagination that you don’t even need to see any gore or murder. Black Christmas, which holds up spectacularly well after almost 40 years, tells the tale of a group of sorority sisters that are hounded and
