Flickering Myth's Top Ten Terrestrial TV Festive Flicks

25 December 2012 12:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tori Brazier helps you plan your Christmas viewing with Flickering Myth's Top Ten* Terrestrial TV Festive Flicks...

The Christmas period has traditionally always been a time for squeezing an excessive amount of television viewing under one’s already-straining belt, with a plethora of comedy specials, dramas, films and one-off specials from which to choose.  This year Channel 5 has chosen to dedicate its entire primetime evening slot on Christmas Day to Eddie Stobart trucker documentaries.   With this potentially suggesting a decline in programme quality and choice (much as Stobart’s lorries are a delightful childhood memory), I have turned to the one facet of Crimbo viewing that will never let you down: the festive film.  Some choices are inexplicable, and the vast majority are not even remotely related to Christmas (Terminator 2: Judgment Day anyone?), but all of these movies offer an escape from frazzled cooks, awkward relatives (for any of my family reading, »

'Singin' in the Rain' Director Stanley Donen Prefers Dance Competition Shows to Modern Musicals These Days

22 June 2012 6:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with "Singin’ in the Rain" director Stanley Donen in Paris when he came to town for a series at the Forum des Images, and he shared some surprising thoughts on the state of song and dance on screen. The filmmaker behind "On the Town," "Funny Face," "Damn Yankees!" and more professed a preference for dance competition shows on TV over modern musicals, saying of the former that he's "thought about using the stars of them in a film." THR: Who haven’t you worked with that you’d like to work with one day? Donen: I’ve worked with a lot of wonderful people but there’s nobody yet that’s made me say ‘I really want to make a picture with her.’ I’m hoping that will happen every minute. "Dancing with the Stars," however – those people are fantastic. And "So You Think You Can Dance" too. »

Claffey Jr., and the Millennium Broadway Hotel, where the event was held. The awards show focused on the honorees’ contributions to the theater community, as well as the work that Inside Broadway, a not-for-profit educational theater company, has done with students throughout New York City.The evening included a performance by Elizabeth Stanley, who just finished starring in “Million Dollar Quartet” Off-Broadway, plenty of jokes from entertainment reporter Julie Chang, who hosted the event, and even a surprise performance by Jonas, which incited much squealing from the younger members of the audience. But it was a group of ten students from P.S. 97 in Brooklyn who kicked off the show, performing an adorable rendition of “New York, New York” from the Leonard Bernstein musical, “On the Town,” which prompted. »

Movie Icon of the Month: A Tribute to Stanley Donen

26 April 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

From On the Town to Royal Wedding to Singin’ in the Rain, Stanley Donen revolutionized movie musicals by making them truly cinematic. Instead of being anchored to the theater stage, he tossed those anchors away and set his ambitious sights on filming a musical in the largest city in the country (impossible!), using camera work to aid the story (crazy!) and challenging old ideas. That, and the fact that he just turned 88 this month, make him our Movie Icon of April. Let’s celebrate his work together. Download Episode #131 On This Week’s Show: Ready For Love [Beginning - 15:00]: A tribute to the great Stanley Donen featuring clips from his work and from interviews. Please go rate us on iTunes. It means a lot to us. On Last Week’s Show: Darren Bousman Battles Depression with a Carnival On Next Week’s Show: All you need to know about The Avengers. Kaboom »

The history of MGM: the golden era

24 January 2012 3:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Zoe’s continues her journey through the turbulent history of one of Hollywood’s most influential studios, as we arrive at MGM's post-war golden era. Plus, a bit of 3D, too...

As the end of World War II approached, a new world dawned for MGM – a world which had changed dramatically. Attitudes and lifestyles had changed, but most importantly audiences had changed. Here was an opportunity: MGM’s chance to start afresh. And so in 1944, MGM embarked on what would become the most successful period in its history. After the war, the slate was wiped clean.

Gone were the tired, tried-and-tested formulas, and gone were the aging names and stars, as a new unit was established at MGM. It was up to this unit, anchored by an experienced producer and made up of bright young talent, to transform MGM’s signature high-production style into something new and modern in order »
