Close up: Guardian film news, reviews and much, much more

26 November 2010 2:46 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the week in which Harry Potter broke five UK box office records, we bring you all the stats, and any other film-related news we can, as relief from wall-to-wall wizardry

The big story

The trouble with Harry is that he's just everywhere. The seventh instalment in the boy wizard's adventures, the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, finally hit cinemas last Friday. By Monday it was clear writers the world over were going to have to dust off that "audiences have fallen under his spell" cliche yet again. So, let's keep this brief: it broke five records this side of the pond, another couple in the States. For more details, try Charles Gant's UK box office analysis and Jeremy Kay's Hollywood report. And if you want to discuss whether or not it revives the sequel as a format, check out David Cox's blog. Last Friday, too, James Russell wrote a »

Community Blabber: What Got You Talking This Week

11 July 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Though BuzzSugar readers had a lot to say about this year's Emmy nominations, there were many other spirited conversations about the latest entertainment news. Check out my favorite comments of the week on the most talked-about stories! The Vampires Suck trailer brings out your own Twilight gripes "I do love Twilight, but it isn't without its flaws. I think Bella was too dependent on men. I mean get a backbone, girl. I also wished that she had actually ended up with Jacob in Breaking Dawn. Now That would have been unpredictable and made for a better story. (I like to pretend the mutant baby never existed)" - fleurfairy "I think these spoof movies are formulaic and not very funny. That said, I like to make fun of Twilight now that I've seen the movies. They're kinda cheesy and fun when you don't take them too seriously." - genesisrocks "Ever since Hot Shots and Space Balls, »

Free Flick of the Day: A Bucket of Blood

10 May 2010 2:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

There was a bit of a fracas here on Cinematical a few months back over whether or not Roger Corman actually deserved his 2009 honorary Oscar. It's true that Roger Corman's directorial career is a bit spotty and filled with duds, but not more so than Oscar-winning directors like John G. Avildsen or Ron Howard. The real issue is that the Academy never, ever considers anything that doesn't look and feel prestigious, so that usually rules out comedies, horror movies and B-movies, which -- by all counts -- can be as great as "prestigious" movies. Corman is responsible for at least a half-dozen outstanding second-gear films, including The Intruder (1961) and The Masque of the Red Death (1964), and this great black comedy, which Corman made when he was getting tired of horror and was in the mood for some fun.

Corman insisted was the first black comedy made in many years »

Cinematical Seven: Comedies Centered Around Dead Bodies

15 April 2010 8:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Neil Labute's remake of Death at a Funeral opens this week, and it got me thinking as to how much mirth has been generated over the years by the demise of some poor onscreen sucker. Think of the advantages these corpses have. They make the perfect straight man and they never flub a punchline. And, if handled correctly, a dead body can flop out of a coffin or roll down a hill with comic aplomb. Hence, here are seven comedies centered around dead bodies:

1. The Trouble with Harry (1955, Alfred Hitchcock)

This is actually my favorite Hitchcock film; it's one of only two flat-out comedies the Master made, and the other one (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) is more like a standard screwball. This one is rich with the kind of sinister black humor that the director included in his coming attractions trailers and TV shows. It also has a truly gorgeous Technicolor autumn countryside setting, »

Charlie’s Angels’ John Forsythe Dies

7 April 2010 9:57 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

John Forsythe was a leading actor on stage, screen and television from the late 1940s, but was never seen in one of his best known roles.  He lent his distinctive voice to the role of Charles Townsend, who sent an array of lovely agents on various cases by speaker phone in the Charlie’s Angels television series from 1976 to 1981.  The Angels originally included Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson, and Jaclyn Smith, and were later joined by Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, and Tanya Roberts.  He reprised his role for feature film adaptations twenty years later, Charlie’s Angels (2000) and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003), starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as a new generation of beautiful detectives.  Forsythe became a silver-haired sex symbol in his sixties, when he starred as ruthless oil tycoon Blake Carrington in the ABC prime-time soap opera Dynasty from 1981 to 1989.  He frequently found himself at the »

John Forsythe obituary

American TV actor famous for his role as Dynasty's Blake Carrington and being the voice of Charlie in Charlie's Angels

If the name of the American actor John Forsythe, who has died aged 92, is not immediately recognisable, then that of his character Blake Carrington – the tanned and handsome silver-haired billionaire oil magnate in the long-running television series Dynasty – certainly is. The show, known for its opulent atmosphere, lavish sets and costumes, and preoccupation with the problems of the wealthy, ran alongside Ronald Reagan's years as Us president, 1981-89. It made Forsythe internationally famous and rich. During the second year of the run, Forsythe remarked: "I can't afford to bulge. Being a 64-year-old sex symbol is a hell of a weight to carry."

With his earnest demeanour, Forsythe, as the patriarch plagued by a scheming ex-wife (Joan Collins), a bisexual son, and other tribulations ranging from murder and greed to lust and incest, »

John Forsythe Passes Away at 92

3 April 2010 10:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

John Forsythe Dies at 92 John Forsythe, the handsome, smooth-voiced actor who made his fortune as the scheming oil tycoon in TV's Dynasty and the voice of the leader of Charlie's Angels has died after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 92.

Forsythe died late Thursday at his home in Santa Ynez from complications of pneumonia, publicist Harlan Boll said Friday.

"He died as he lived his life, with dignity and grace," daughter Brooke Forsythe said.

Despite his distinguished work in theater and films, Forsythe's greatest fame came from his role as Blake Carrington in the 1981-89 primetime soap opera Dynasty. Forsythe lent dignity to the tale of murder, deceit, adultery and high finance, which often brought Carrington into conflict with his flashy, vengeful former wife, Alexis Colby, played to the hilt by Joan Collins.

Collins released the following statement through her spokesmen Andrew Freedman:

John Forsythe, star of Dynasty, dies aged 92

Actor was also the voice of Charlie in Charlie's Angels

John Forsythe, the American actor who starred in the 1980s Us soap Dynasty and was the voice of Charlie in the TV series Charlie's Angels, has died at 92. He died of pneumonia at his home in Santa Ynez, California, after a long battle with cancer.

In a statement last night, his family said he died on Thursday, "as he lived his life … with dignity and grace". His career in film, theatre and television spanned more than five decades, but he is likely to be best remembered for playing Blake Carrington, the Denver oil tycoon in Dynasty, which ran from 1981-89. Joan Collins and Linda Evans played the women in his life and helped to make the actor a sex symbol in his 60s.

Forsythe won three Emmy nominations for his portrayal of the conniving and debonair Carrington, although he never won the award. »

John Forsythe dies at 92

2 April 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

John Forsythe, who starred as the urbane Blake Carrington on the 1980s primetime soap "Dynasty" and provided the unseen voice of Charlie on "Charlie's Angels," has died. He was 92.

Forsythe died Thursday in Santa Ynez, Calif., of complications from pneumonia after a yearlong struggle with cancer. He owned a ranch in the area north of Santa Barbara.

With his smooth manner and silver mane, Forsythe exuded paternal power and iron-fisted control on ABC's "Dynasty" as a ruthless Denver oil magnate who dealt not only with the high-stakes vagaries of the oil business but with the even more volatile eruptions of his competitive womenfolk, embodied by Linda Evans' good-girl purity and Joan Collins' bad-girl sexuality.

For his portrayal of Carrington, Forsythe earned two Golden Globes and three Emmy nominations. So popular was the show that in 1985, Forsythe became the spokesperson for a line of men's cologne called "Carrington." He »
