I’m sorry everybody… I didn’t like Logan

19 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis gives his thoughts on Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine, the incredibly well received Logan

Now that’s a loaded title! Perfectly designed to stand out amongst all the glowing Logan reviews in your MySpace timeline. Some will call it ‘clickbait’. Those people probably don’t understand what ‘clickbait’ is.

I write the title with a heavy heart, though. I wanted to love Logan. Everybody else seemed to. It’s a superhero Western with blood and swearing and Jean-Luc Picard. It’s like James Mangold looked up my Netflix viewing history, saw High Noon, Star Trek: The Next Generation and RuPaul’s Drag Race and thought, ‘let’s make a Wolverine solo movie specifically for this guy!’

Actually, ignore that whole RuPaul’s Drag Race part.

My reasons for not enjoying Logan are coming, but before we get there, I need to devote at least 500 words to over-establishing context. »

Fist Fight – Review

16 February 2017 9:23 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

A showdown’s a’ comin’! Not on the main street of Dodge City, but at the multiplex once again. The final throw down between the hero and villain has been a staple of cinema since its earliest days, mainly in action films and primarily the western. There have been countless screen versions of that infamous incident , the gunfight at the O.K. Corral (the most famous being the Kirk Douglas/Burt Lancaster 1950’s classic) . This most likely inspired many other “oaters”, the most celebrated being the iconic 1952 High Noon (which garnered an Oscar for star Gary Cooper). It’s set in real-time as the clock ticks to 12, while Will Kane readies himself for the arrival of the Miller gang. We’ve seen this plot used in many other genres, providing extra excitement to the final acts of every movie hero’s exploits from Rocky to Bond to Batman. But it »

'Fist Fight': Film Review

16 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Phil Joanou's 1987 teen comedy Three O'Clock High, while not a remake of High Noon, signaled its heritage and its comic anxiety in the title: The solemnity of Fred Zinnemann's midday-showdown Western was transformed into something sounding like the name of a high school, with the ticking-clock deadline now timed to the final school bell — three more hours of desperation than Gary Cooper had to endure.

Richie Keen's Fist Fight, which isn't a remake of either film, makes a considerably blander promise to viewers: There's going to be a fight. With fists.

If that's an attempt to manage expectations, »

Screenwriting 101: Two basic ways to structure your script

7 February 2017 3:19 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Scott McConnell.

Based in Melbourne and La, story consultant and producer Scott McConnell has read for companies including Nu Image, The Samuel Goldwyn Company, Hallmark, New World Television, Sundance Institute, and Concorde-New Horizons.

A member of the Producers Guild of America, McConnell has produced shows for Nat Geo, Animal Planet/Discovery, TruTV, Spike and Fox. His credits include 'Live Life and Win!' and the reality series 'Hollywood Boot Camp'..

In this guest column, he talks about that old chestnut: the difference between story and plot..

In Aspects of the Novel, novelist E.M. Forster wrote, .The king died and then the queen died. The king died and then the queen died of grief.. The first sentence describes two events of a story, while the second sentence describes two events of a plot. As many writers and critics have noted, the essential difference between a story and a plot »

The Greatest Western Films

2 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Whether it’s the golden era of spaghetti westerns or the more blood soaked appeal of the Tarantino films, there’s no denying that Hollywood loves the appeal of the old west. From books, to video games, and even casino slots, the world loves a good western. We take a look at some of the greatest films in history!

Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid

Without a doubt, one of the most popular westerns in cinematic history, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was released in 1969. Directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman the film is loosely based on a true story. It tells the story of the outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the Sundance Kid, who are on the run after a string of train robberies. The pair, along with Longabaugh ‘s lover Etta Place flee to Bolivia in »

25 Days Until Oscar...

1 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Twenty-five days is not much. Are you ready? For today's special number, I thought we'd look back at the 25th annual Oscars, the first televised Academy Awards ever, but then I realized we'd already written a huge post about it with actresses falling on stairs and everything! So let's keep this simple. What's your choice for Best of 1952 (beyond Singin' in the Rain)?

The nominees were:

The Greatest Show on Earth High Noon Ivanhoe Moulin Rouge The Quiet Man

...and if there'd been three to five more nominees they would surely have included The Bad and the Beautiful which won 5 Oscars, the most ever won by a non Best Picture nominee), and Viva Zapata! which had 5 nominations, 3 of them major categories. If it had extended beyond 7 perhaps a combo of less loved or more divisive pictures like My Cousin Rachel (the remake is coming out this very year starring Rachel Weisz »
