Review: Cuban Fury (Blu-ray)

17 June 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The dance culture has seen an explosion of cinematic adaptations in recent years. There was Step Up in 2006 -  the dan-com that launched the career of one Channing Tatum; MTV-funded urban success Save the Last Dance in 2001; and everyones favourite rags-to-Rojo story Billy Elliot in 2000. Going further back, classics such as Footloose (starring Kevin Bacon. Yes, believe it or not he used to appear in films), Dirty Dancing and Saturday Night Fever slide into shot, while one could even argue the suitability of Gene Kelly’s infamous musical number Singin' in the Rain...although for the purpose of this review, we’ll stick with dance as the main focus as opposed to an entertaining side-plot.

However, Cuban Fury is a beast like no other. While it may tap along to a similar beat, it’s underlying study is of a comical nature. Viewers are presented with 98 minutes of unadulterated ‘slapstick »

Trailers from Hell Goes 'Singin' In The Rain'

12 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, John Landis takes on that iconic 1952 musical, "Singin' In The Rain." Close to perfection. Directors Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly assemble a peerless cast and crew to satirize and celebrate Hollywood. Set at the moment when sound came to motion pictures and turned the industry upside down (sending more than a few actors to the unemployment line), 1952's "Singin' In The Rain" seamlessly integrates its songs into its storyline, but even without those buoyant musical numbers it would still be one of the funniest movies ever made, thanks to Comdon and Green's ingenious screenplay. Co-stars Debbie Reynolds, Donald O'Connor (in a sidekick role intended for Oscar Levant), and especially Jean Hagen, as the overbearing star with the voice to match, were never better. The title song had appeared previously in The Hollywood Revue of 1929 and 1940's Little Nelly Kelly. Recycling never looked so good. »

On 'The Double': Richard Ayoade Meets His Match

9 May 2014 5:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Most people on this side of the pond might recognize veteran English comedian Richard Ayoade as the oddball techie Moss on the Britcom The It Crowd, or as the odd man out from the 2012 A-list sci-fi comedy The Watch (he was the gentleman who was not Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn or Jonah Hill). He's established himself as a novel comic presence onscreen, gravitating toward characters that feel several beats off from the norm and don't mesh with their environments.

From Dark to Flat-Out Hilarious: Here Are the SXSW Comedies You Need to Watch

18 March 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Make ’em laugh. That’s a song from Singin' in the Rain. It seems very appropriate for this SXSW Film Festival, and not just because I happily stood in the rain for an hour and a half to see Neighbors. Actually, let’s change it a little bit. “Make me laugh.” There. That’s better. Film festivals can be filled with heartbreaking documentaries and tragic dramas, that’s why I always scan the descriptions for the word “comedy.” I need a little pep in my film if I’m seeing four to five a day for the week. Thankfully, SXSW didn’t disappoint this year. Here is a roundup of the funny films SXSW had to offer, and that you should look for in the coming months.   The Dark Comedy Bad Words Jason Bateman is sick...

How Russell Crowe's Noah united two religions – against it

13 March 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Some Muslims don't wan't to see Darren Aronofsky's new movie because Crowe plays Noah, a sacred figure in Islam. And it turns out that Christians aren't too keen on watching it either

Name: Noah.

Age: Minus two weeks.

Appearance: That depends. There are about seven different versions.

I'm confused. I thought there was only one Noah in the Bible? And didn't he live for 950 years? Sure, in a biblical kind of way.

But? But we're not talking about Noah the person, we're talking about Noah the movie.

There's a movie? Actually there are several. They all star Russell Crowe as Noah, and they were all directed by Darren Aronofsky.

Eh? Paramount Pictures has edited and re-edited Aronofsky's original to try to find a version that Christians will go crazy for, like they did for The Passion of the Christ.

Ok. And how's that going? Not well. Test audiences didn't »

Jennifer Lopez's Red Silk Romper: Gotta Have It or Make It Stop?

8 March 2014 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We think we might be totally in love with Jennifer Lopez in this deep red romper but we need some convincing. On the one hand, the "I Luh Ya Papi" singer looks like she's wearing a set of too tight PJs. The shiny fabric feels a tad tacky for out-of-the-bedroom wear. But the old school shape hugs this curvy beauty in all the best places, making her feel like a showgirl from the '40s. Can't you see her popping out of a giant cake to sing a quick little ditty like in "Singin' In the Rain?" Would a modern belt help take this vintage look into 2.0 territory? Or maybe it's the dark shade that needs a reboot? We are used to seeing the queen of The Bronx in something a bit bolder and »

Eternal Screencaps from the Blogging Mind

4 March 2014 8:07 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Guess what unforgettable movie about people wanting to forget is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary?

Have you ever thought about what your favorite shot from it is? Or which shot best represents the movie as a whole? Have you ever wondered how it can possibly be that the cinematographer Ellen Kuras has only done 4 narrative features in the ten years since?

You know where this is going right?!

Break out the bubbly because "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" returns on March 18th (We're moving it to Tuesdays at 9 Pm to give people the weekend to screen the movies and be ready!). If you're new to the blog or haven't yet experimented with actually participating, I guarantee a good time. Everyone who has participating religiously has said that they've gotten a ton out of it. Plus it proves the point 'the more the merrier' because the best episodes offer »

"You Like Me!" (this is not an Oscar post)

2 March 2014 2:19 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

3 Notes. Oh don't click away you have time to read them. And yes I'll be live tweeting and a little light blogging tonight

01. Like The Film Experience on Facebook. Follow Nathaniel on Twitter, Pinterest? Why am I so needy? It's like this: Once Oscar night wraps up I experience something like a free fall; help me pull that parachute string.

02. We're here all year -- it's not just an Oscar site so don't abandon us if you're exhausted by Oscar shenanigans. There's only one more week of it, recapping this year's Oscars, filmbitching, and we'll close out the annual festivities with that Supporting Actress Smackdown we promised (yes, the one I flubbed that you've been impatient for). After that one eye returns to brand new movies and pinch of tv and the other to occasional trips back to favored oldies in A Year With Kate, Seasons of Bette, and Hit Me. »

Happy birthday, Joseph Gordon-Levitt: A true song-and-dance man

17 February 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

In honor of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 33rd birthday Monday (Feb. 17), here's a tribute to his rather remarkable talent of being a true song-and-dance man in this day and age. In Hollywood of yore, men like Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Danny Kaye were headlining movies all over the entertainment landscape -- and not just movies, but movies with beautiful songs and dance numbers.

Nowadays, it's a much rarer commodity. Singers are singers, actors are actors and, well, dancing isn't something you see very often, particularly from men. So happy birthday, Jgl. If Hollywood ever wanted to remake "Singin' in the Rain," you'd be the guy to tap.

You can catch Jgl on TV each week hosting his latest project, "HitRECord on TV," which features a theme around which the included short films, music and other forms of art are based. It airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Pivot. »

Year in Review: Best Dance Moments

1 January 2014 8:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

[Michael surveyed the year in dance in cinema for 2012. For 2013, Dancin' Dan takes over the listing of key dance moments in the cinematic year. - Editor]

I started dancing as a kid because of Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor in Singin' In The Rain, and haven't looked back since. I'm continually fascinated by the ways in which dance is filmed and what dance on film might say about the state of the state of both arts.

What do the films of 2013 have to say about dance? Not much but definitely that we dance to have fun, especially at parties! Dancing gifs and best moments after the jump »
