Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Bates Suffers in Contrived, Overlong Drama About Christian Persecution of Jews

12 May 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Fixer' movie with Alan Bates, Dirk Bogarde and Ian Holm (background) 'The Fixer' movie review: 1968 anti-Semitism drama wrecked by cast, direction, and writing In 1969, director John Frankenheimer declared that he felt "better about The Fixer than anything I've ever done in my life." Considering Frankenheimer's previous output – Seven Days in May, the much admired The Manchurian Candidate – it is hard to believe that the director was being anything but a good P.R. man for his latest release. Adapted from Bernard Malamud's National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (itself based on the real story of Jewish brick-factory worker Menahem Mendel Beilis), The Fixer is an overlong, overblown, and overwrought contrivance that, albeit well meaning, carelessly misuses most of the talent involved while sadistically abusing the patience – and at times the intelligence – of its viewers. John Frankenheimer overindulges in 1960s kitsch John Frankenheimer »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César.

Recently launched distributor Bleecker Street has set Bryan Cranston’s “Trumbo” for an awards-season release on Nov. 6 in the U.S.

10 things you (probably) didn’t know about The Sound of Music

1 March 2015 9:30 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s hard to believe, but The Sound of Music celebrates its 50th anniversary today. The Julie Andrews musical is one of the most memorable movies of all time. It’s also one of the most famous -- a bonafide classic that won five Oscars and an avalanche of critical acclaim. It’s perhaps no surprise then that the film is still enchanting audiences half a century on from its original release.

So to celebrate its big day – and because trivia really is one of our favourite things – here are ten things you probably didn’t know about The Sound of Music.

 

1. Christopher Plummer didn’t like the film

The film is beloved by generations of film fans, but one major Sound of Music naysayer? Christopher Plummer, one of the classic's biggest stars. The man who became famous for playing Mr. Von Trapp referred to the film as "The Sound of Mucus" whilst on set. »

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret.[1] The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Audrey Hepburn

21 February 2015 7:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AP/AP

Every now and then, Hollywood is graced with a truly standout individual who, for whatever mixture of reasons, stands head and shoulders above the rest. They are the enduring icons, and the ones who remains classics of the silver screen even decades after their departure.

No other actress fits the role more definitively than Audrey Hepburn. Despite her diminutive stature, she made an enormous impact on the film industry from the outset, receiving equal billing alongside already established star Gregory Peck in her first starring role in Roman Holiday. For an actress who wasn’t even first choice for the role, it was a hell of an entrance to make.

But even though she may be renowned for genre-defining roles like socialite call-girl Holly Golightly and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle, there remains far more to her character than what is seen on screen. A humanitarian, artist and dancer, »

Every time a new medium debuts, all the old classics are restored and re-released. This long overdue Blu-Ray collection of some of Audrey Hepburn’s greatest hits does not disappoint. One could really see this tantalizing trifecta of grand glamour as the “Master Directors and Audrey Hepburn Collection,” with each film toting one of the top names of her golden age: Billy Wilder helming Sabrina, William Wyler’s command of the eternally adored Roman Holiday, and Blake Edwards rounding out the incomparable trio with his leadership of the most well remembered of the bunch, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Thanks to a painstaking and attentive restoration, and the directors’ seamless craftsmanship, this collection lets you sit back and bask in the wonder that was Audrey Hepburn.
