How ‘Pete’s Dragon’ & ‘Stranger Things’ Did Spielberg Nostalgia Better Than ‘The Bfg’

15 August 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With “Stranger Things” as the buzziest new show, and “Pete’s Dragon” gliding into theaters on the strongest reviews for a major studio release in months, 2016 could go down in the history books as the Summer of Spielberg — as long as you overlook the movie Steven Spielberg actually directed.

Both the Duffer Brothers’ Netflix series and David Lowery’s Disney remake are fueled by ’80s nostalgia, specifically the world captured as captured in 1982’s “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” and 1985’s Spielberg-produced “The Goonies.” It’s a place of fractured families and corded phones, wood-paneled station wagons and well-meaning villains.

The vogue for Spielberg-esque entertainment is in some ways a simple matter of chickens coming home to roost: Lowery was born in 1980; the Duffer twins, Matt and Ross, in 1984. “E.T.” and its infinite lesser derivatives would have entered their consciousness before they gained the ability to distinguish one from the other. »

John Ostrander: American Pop Idol

3 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It’s getting to be the Fourth of July and so it’s apropos to think about this country, what it is, what defines it, what makes it America. Those are somewhat large topics for an essay of 500-700 words (which is where I usually clock in) so we’ll just confine ourselves to one small area.

We deal with pop culture here at ComicMix so let’s think of pop culture icons, those things that we use as symbols of this country. We’re going to focus on one – American movie star/icon John Wayne. Marion Robert Morrison (Wayne’s borth name) made gobs of movies, usually westerns, war movies and detective films. He was a star in the old fashioned Golden Age of Hollywood sense of the word. No one was bigger.

Everybody and his/her brother does an impression of Wayne. My brother does one and I have different versions. »

Given to See: A Tribute to Shigehiko Hasumi

30 March 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The following text is an excerpt from an essay commissioned by the specialist publishing house Hatori Press (Japan) for a tribute to the great critic, scholar and teacher Shigehiko Hasumi on the occasion of his 80th birthday (29 April 2016). Other contributors to this book (slated to appear in both Japanese and English editions) include Pedro Costa, Chris Fujiwara and Richard I. Suchenski. Beyond Prof. Hasumi’s many achievements in criticism and education (he was President of the University of Tokyo between 1997 and 2001), his ‘method,’ his unique way of seeing and speaking about films, has served as an immense inspiration for a generation of directors in Japan including Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Shinji Aoyama. The online magazines Rouge (www.rouge.com.au) and Lola (www.lolajournal.com), co-edited by Martin, provide the best access to Hasumi’s work in English (see references in the notes below).Leos Carax and Shigehiko Hasumi.

John Wayne in The Quiet Man at The Hi-Pointe Saturday Morning March 12th

3 March 2016 10:44 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Two women in the house – and one of them a redhead!”

The Quiet Man (1952) is one of Hollywood’s most beloved movies and you’ll have a chance to see it on the big screen at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater next weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s Saturday, March 12th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. Admission is only $5.

John Ford’s flamboyant tribute to Irish-Americans, The Quiet Man may be full of all-too-familiar Irish stereotypes, ranging from a fondness for spirits to the love of a good fight, but it’s delivered with great skill and broad humor and at its heart is a good-natured, old-fashioned romance. The action takes place in Sea Verge (Ireland), around 1933 and tells the story of “Sean Thornton” (John Wayne), “a quiet peace loving man come home from America”, He’s a »

Oscars: Why 'Spotlight' Was the Last Film Standing at the End of a Most Unusual Season (Analysis)

29 February 2016 3:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

What appeared to be the closest best picture Oscar race in the 21st century was won on Sunday night by Spotlight, which vanquished The Revenant and The Big Short, as well as five other nominees. This was the first time in 63 years, since The Greatest Show on Earth beat High Noon and The Quiet Man, that a film won top honors along with only one other award. And it makes Tom Ortenberg's Open Road Films the youngest distributor ever to claim top honors; unlike other young companies like Orion and DreamWorks that claimed Oscars, it hasn't even turned five

It’s official, the best Oscar year ever is… – watch Jump Cut #4

28 February 2016 3:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week’s Jump Cut is all about determining the best year ever in cinema.

“But how can you figure that out?!” you shout at whatever device you’re reading this on. “Film is too subjective an art form for you to make overarching statements like that!”

That’s a very good point, but you’re overlooking two things: 1) the Oscar best picture nominations, and 2) film ratings on the Internet Movie Database. Both obviously have degrees of subjectivity, but that’s levelled off somewhat with each institution’s sheer number of voters or raters.

So, to work out what year was the best ever for cinema, we’ve taken all the films nominated for each year’s Best Picture Oscar, and then worked out their average IMDb rating. I’ll just point out that these were the ratings as of the week of the 88th Academy Awards on 22nd February »

In Oscar Directing Category, ‘More’ Sometimes Beats ‘Best’

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Here’s a Hollywood riddle. Why are 2015’s director Oscar nominees like Olympic gymnasts? Because their judges seem to have considered degree of difficulty.

These days, the helmer category routinely honors formidable narratives demanding a battlefield general as much as an artiste. Ang Lee ringmastered the 3-D “Life of Pi” menagerie to an Oscar, followed by Alfonso Cuaron recreating the solar system for the interstellar rescue of “Gravity.” Last year, Alejandro Inarritu’s punishing one-take saunter through existential angst ended in his statuette for “Birdman.”

Small wonder partisans are practically going door-to-door to inform voters about the climate extremes Inarritu put his cast through on “The Revenant,” and vehicle stunts pulled off by George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” team with minimal digital help.

If these films were knockouts, the spin seems to say, look how their makers knocked themselves out.

Even the contempo nominees boasted head-shaking challenges. How, »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘Revenant’ DGA Win Keeps Oscar Guessing Game Going

6 February 2016 11:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The only thing Alejandro G. Inarritu really had going against him heading into this year’s Directors Guild of America awards ceremony was that he just won a year ago for “Birdman.” Apparently, that wasn’t enough.

The “Revenant” director became the first filmmaker to ever win back-to-back DGA honors for feature filmmaking Saturday night, and really, beyond the simple unlikely nature of that prospect, it’s difficult to call it a shock. After all, it’s not a hard sell to the guild’s 13,000 members that production on “The Revenant” was no walk in the park. That’s certainly been the overbearing linchpin of the film’s campaign these last several weeks, a narrative that is helping to propel Leonardo DiCaprio to his first Oscar. But moreover, voters in this group, they know very well what it takes to pull off a project like this. So they voted accordingly. »
