Hitchcock – The Review

30 November 2012 4:52 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Alfred Hitchcock’s fixation with the icy blondes who populated his films (Grace Kelly, Kim Novak, and most infamously, Tippi Hedren) is well-documented, but less-known are the details of the director’s 50-year marriage to his story editor Alma Reville. The new film Hitchcock explores the relationship between Hitch and Alma with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren in the roles and sets it against the filming of their terrifying 1960 classic Psycho. With this movie-buff’s dream premise, this cast, a smart script by John McLaughlin (Black Swan), and a sly score by Danny Elfman, you’d think this project could direct itself but they handed the reins to newcomer Sascha Gervasi, whose only previous film was the rock doc Anvil! The Story Of Anvil (read my review Here). The result is a film that falls short of the greatness I think it could have achieved if a more visionary director »

Film Review: ‘Hitchcock’

14 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Anthony Hopkins doesn’t look one damn bit like Alfred Hitchcock, but he puts on one helluva show in his most engaging, hilarious and even sympathetic performance years in director Sascha Gervasi’s new film on the famed director. Less a biopic and more a hypothetical look at the master of suspense, Hopkins is smart enough not to try and imitate Hitchcock, but present his own interpretation. Where HBO’s recently aired The Girl, focused on Hitchcock’s obsession and manipulation of his leading lady Tippi Hedren, during the making of The Birds, Gervasi’s film is centered not just around the production of Psycho, but the director crossing back and forth between the line that separates the fantasy of cinema and the realities of success, fame and failure.

Fresh off the success of his biggest hit, 1959′s North by Northwest, Hitch – “Call me ‘Hitch’, hold the ‘cock’”, he tells »

'Hitchcock' (2012) Movie Review

9 November 2012 8:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A competent cast and amusing direction brings us a snapshot of what it may have been like to spend a small amount of time with the "Master of Suspense", Alfred Hitchcock, over the course of the months before, during and after the making of one of the most popular horror films of all-time, Psycho. Based on Stephen Rebello's 1998 non-fiction book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho," director Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock is both heartfelt and darkly comedic as it explores Hithcock's relationship with his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), obsessive behavior with his blonde leading ladies and hunger to captivate his audience. A tight narrative and solid performances make Hitchcock a film worthy of watching even if it won't bowl you over. The majority of attention will be placed on Anthony Hopkins and the rubber latex attempting to transform him into the iconic director. While he may not look exactly like Hitchcock, »

Overlooked Trailers: 'Toys in the Attic', 'Stage Fright', 'The Letter' and Plenty of Toronto Entries

17 August 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Hannover House This week's edition of Overlooked Trailers has damn near every single kind of movie you could imagine from low-budget found footage horror, to drama, to thriller, to sci-fi, to martial arts, documentary and stop-motion animation. The first trailer below is for Toys in the Attic, an English adaptation of the 2009 French stop motion film, which looks like more of a darker version of Toy Story told through stop-motion rather than CGI. After that is Deadfall, a thriller starring Eric Bana, Olivia Wilde, Charlie Hunnam, Sissy Spacek and Kris Kristofferson, which is to say it has a loaded cast, but wasn't able to land a major distributor. Could still be a decent watch however. Stage Fright is a curious movie about the condemnation of some kids that are making a movie based on some found footage material. It's working with Paranormal Activity's "Demand It" marketing tactic, but »

Trailer For Found Footage Horror ‘Stage Fright’

14 August 2012 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paranormal Activity 4 is going to get some found footage horror competition in the form of Stage Fright this year, and here’s the first trailer released. Stage Fright ‘documents’ the last few hours of a group of students found hung in a high school. All of this relates back to an accident from decades before involving a school play gone wrong.

The trailer seems to be mostly made up of fake news coverage and audience reactions, which will hopefully result in the film having many surprises when it opens. But I think it’s a little too late in the game to be trying so hard to pass this off as real. I’m willing to suspend disbelief when I actually sit down to watch the film, but constantly telling me how real it is just makes me think the filmmakers aren’t confident enough in their own film. »

Movie Poster of the Week: Masaki Kobayashi’s “Harakiri”

13 July 2012 7:24 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

With Takashi Miike’s remake Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai next week I thought it was as good an excuse as any to look back at the many gorgeous posters for Masaki Kobayashi’s 1962 original. One of the most startlingly beautiful of all Samurai movies, Harakiri is an exercise in stylistic bravado, a masterpiece of widescreen high contrast black and white. I recently stumbled across this unusually stark vertical Polish poster—like one of Kobayashi’s frames upended—by Marek Freudenreich (he of the amazing crossword skull Stage Fright) on a Polish culture site which was reviewing a 2008 show of his work. This little-seen design set me off on a search for other posters for Kobayashi’s masterpiece, the fruits of which you can see below.

Above: The enormous Italian style B  4-foglio (55" x 78") by Alverado Ciriello.

Above: The Italian style A 4-foglio (55" x 78") , also by Ciriello.

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day”

6 July 2012 4:44 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Back in November, after having written Movie Poster of the Week for almost three years, I decided to start a Tumblr as a place to display all those orphan posters I loved: the ones I couldn’t find all that much to say about, that didn’t fit any current trend or personal train of thought but which needed to be seen. It seemed natural to call it Movie Poster of the Day and so I decided I would try to post just one single poster a day, ideally something unfamiliar yet worthy of attention. In February, Flavorpill declared Movie Poster of the Day one of the “Essential Tumblrs for film fans” which persuaded me it was worth continuing and over the past eight months I have somehow managed to post something every single day. In the process I seem to have amassed over 15,000 followers on Tumblr.

Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe! Here are Her 5 Most Underrated Screen Moments

1 June 2012 6:49 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Marilyn Monroe, born June 1, 1926

I spend a lot of time resenting popular opinion about female icons. For instance, I don't think Madonna is just a "business-smart chameleon": She's cooler than Michael Jackson, cannier than Prince, smarter than Elvis, and her very essence was more meaningful than most poet laureates' magnum opuses. So there. I don't think Grace Kelly was just a "living fairytale": She was a killer screen star with astonishing charisma in three Hitchcock movies -- and Mogambo. I reserve my strongest feelings for the woman who would've turned 86 today, Marilyn Monroe, since her continued pop culture presence is shallower and lamer than any icon before or since. Based on how popular she remains and how unpopular most of her filmography is, you'd think the reason her legacy lives on is because people figure one historical blonde has to be most famous, and it may as well »

The John Bensalhia Column: Long live Hooky Street

28 May 2012 11:30 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

If Only Fools And Horses had started in the 21st century, it wouldn't have lasted for more than two series.

Let me explain. Back in the early 1980s, a brand new sitcom was written by John Sullivan, charting the misadventures of a wayward Peckham family, the Trotters. Three generations were spanned in a poky flat, which was part of Nelson Mandela House. The problem was that, when it first went out in 1981, the ratings were deemed to be on the low side. A second series went ahead, but even then, the ratings were not deemed world-shattering. If that had happened today, the show would have been axed quicker than you could shout “Mange Tout!” That's the price you pay for being with a ratings-hungry broadcaster, full of media-savvy trendies with buzzwords and balance sheets.

But luckily, a repeat season was to prove to be Only Fools And Horses' salvation. This time around, »

Michael Stuhlbarg, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, and Michael Wincott Board ‘The Making of Psycho’

21 March 2012 1:38 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Today has been kind to Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. Just a few hours after the semi-biopic nabbed Jessica Biel for a movie star role, Variety reports that a strong quartet of actors are about to dot their name on the contract line. Who, you may ask? Michael Stuhlbarg, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, and Michael Wincott, all of whom will take up historical personas big and small.

Stuhlbarg has been tapped to play Lew Wasserman, then-agent to Hitchcock and, you may or may not know, future head of Universal Studios; Collette will be seen as Peggy Robertson, the Master of Suspense’s “fiercely protective” assistant; Huston is Whitfield Cook, friend to Hitchcock’s wife, Alma (Helen Mirren), and co-writer of Stage Fright; and Wincott has the most interesting role: Ed Gein, the infamous serial killer who partly inspired the character of Norman Bates.

Interview: Cat Deeley of "Sytycd" at the La Auditions

9 March 2012 6:53 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Forget groundhogs and local news meteorologists, there is one sure sign that warmer weather is coming: the sunny presence of Cat Deeley and Fox's dance competition series, So You Think You Can Dance.

The addictive series, which is gearing up for season nine, has been scouring the country looking for the best dancers to compete when new episodes begin in May. Last week, the judges made a stop at the legendary Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles before they venture off to Las Vegas next month for the all-important callbacks. Ever-bubbly host Deeley was on hand and clearly (as you'll see here reaction at the start of video) loved hearing that was there to grab a few minutes with her.

She gave us a heads up on potential hot dancers (be on the lookout for the tapper with the moustache!), and she also explained just how the show »
