15 Takeaways from Conecta Fiction

26 June 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Santiago De Compostela, Spain — A higgledy-piggledy maze of cobbled streets, granite-stoned convents and white veranda towns houses, Santiago seems suspended in time.     Over June 20-23, it bore witness at Conecta Fiction, an inaugural TV forum, to a revolution: That of scripted TV and nascent Latin America-Europe co-production. The two-and-a-half days were so packed with events as to make nigh impossible much on-site reporting. Following, in retrospect, 15 takeaways from the first-ever Conecta Fiction meet.

1.Latin America-europe TV Co-production: An Imperious Necessity

A boutique Latin America-Europe drama TV co-production forum, Conecta Forum brought together a swathe of high-caliber Latin America channel, broadcaster and fiction TV heads with producers and counterparts in Spain, plus a choice presence of largely French commissioning editors and producers  from the rest of Europe. Many, maybe most, had never met. Nearly all sang the virtues, and necessity of international TV co-production. “A few years ago there were no international co-productions, now »

Showtime’s ‘Becoming Cary Grant’ Is A Disappointingly Depthless Doc [Review]

8 June 2017 1:14 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You don’t have to have had his face as your avatar since you joined Twitter, like a certain @jessicakiang we could mention, to believe that Cary Grant is possibly the greatest movie star that cinema has ever produced. But nor does choosing to have Roger O. Thornhill from “North By Northwest” grimace out from your every tweet mean that you’re unaware of the actor’s rumored checkered personal history or that you uncomplicatedly embrace his mythos.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Becoming Cary Grant’

5 June 2017 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Becoming Cary Grant” is a catchy title for an inside Hollywood documentary. It suggests that the person who ultimately evolved into Cary Grant — he was born in 1904 and started off as Archie Leach, a dirt-poor kid from Bristol in the south of England — really did need to become him, for the same reason that anyone else would: namely, that Cary Grant wasn’t quite of this earth. David Thomson, the venerable film critic who speaks throughout the movie as an authority on Grant, suggests that the actor was neither British nor American, but a one-of-a-kind hybrid. Even his accent, so utterly distinctive, was unplaceable. On the surface, it had the clipped cadences of British cultivated elegance, but the music it carried had a harder America edge. The movie quotes Grant as saying, “Everybody wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.” That tells you what a »

No Tarantino, no Statham and no Fellini … what films should you never watch on an airplane?

18 May 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

People love watching films at 30,000 feet. But are they watching the wrong ones? Almost certainly

Few decisions in life are more difficult than selecting which movie to watch on an airplane. This is especially true if you are a bona fide film aficionado, a moviegoer with high standards. In this case, you must act judiciously, taking preemptive measures against the airline itself.

If you wait until you have taken your seat before deciding what you are going to watch, you have left yourself at the mercy of the airline, and deserve whatever happens to you. The viewing menu will invariably include a wide array of films you have already seen and do not need to see again. Things like North by Northwest and The Shawshank Redemption and Dumb and Dumber.

Cary Grant: how 100 acid trips in Tinseltown 'changed my life'

12 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

At the height of his fame, Cary Grant turned to LSD therapy for help. He later claimed the drug saved him, but did it also spell the end of his career?

In the late 1950s, at the height of his fame, Cary Grant set off on a trip in search of his true self, unpicking the myth he had spent three decades perfecting. He tried hypnosis and yoga and felt that they both came up short. So he began dropping acid and claimed to have found inner peace. “During my LSD sessions, I would learn a great deal,” he would later remark. “And the result was a rebirth. I finally got where I wanted to go.”

Grant’s adventures in psychedelia – an estimated 100 sessions, spanning the years 1958-1961 – provide the basis for Becoming Cary Grant, a fascinating documentary that plays at next week’s Cannes film festival. It’s a »

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

John WilliamsStar Wars

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

Hot Docs 2017 Review: 78/52, An Endearing, Insightful Study of a Single Masterstroke of a Cinematic Legend

7 May 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

At the end of the Summer of 1960 audiences and fans of British auteur Alfred Hitchcock and his already stellar filmography scurried into cinemas to watch his new film, Psycho. Riding a growing wave of popularity, hot on the heels of films like North by Northwest in ‘59, Vertigo in ‘58 and his television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents there was an anticipation but also an expectation as to what Psycho was going to be about. Little did the general public know that Hitchcock was rallying against that expectation and was going to play a tremendous prank that would shake this audience to its core.    Alexandre O. Philippe’s documentary 78/52 breaks down and explores, to tremendous detail, the most infamous shower scene in the history...

Hitchcock/Truffaut – Review

30 April 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I was 12 years old in 1968. One of my favorite places was the library, in those days the closest library to us was the Tesson Ferry Branch in South St. Louis County. My most prized possession was my library card.

My Mother used to drop me off there on a Saturday or a summer weekday and I would spend the whole day reading. One of those days I pulled a book off the shelf called Hitchcock/Truffaut and sat down to read it. I knew who Alfred Hitchcock was from his television show, and from his monthly Mystery Magazine as well as anthologies that I was reading avidly, Tales That Frightened Even Me, More Tales for the Nervous and, my favorite, Stories to be Read After Dark.

I was aware that Alfred Hitchcock was most renowned for directing movies. I had seen a few on television, Saboteur was a mainstay on Kplr TV, »

Newswire: Hello darkness, my old friend: The Graduate returns to theaters this month

4 April 2017 5:12 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Evolution of Title Slides

24 March 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

From informative to artistic.

This is one of the cooler videos I’ve come across in a while, as it traces the creative evolution of filmmaking from a perspective I’ve yet to see in any other video: the title slide.

The title slide is the same thing as the title card, and its name pretty much sums up what it does: tells you the film’s title. In Hollywood’s early days back in the 1910s, 20s, and 30s, title slides were chockful of information: movie title, director, studio, studio logo, copyright information, year of production, producer names, and all sorts of other stuff. As the medium progressed, you started seeing less and less information in title slides and more and more creativity. This creativity hits a tipping point around the 1960s when Saul Bass started working his particular brand of title magic for films like Hitchcock’s Psycho, Vertigo »

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

17 March 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »

Cool Video: Darth by Darthwest is the combination you know you want

17 March 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest is one of the greatest thrillers of all time. Star Wars is one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. Naturally these movies are two peas in a pod, and what better way to prove that then by taking Northwest’s most iconic scene (and one of the most famous in cinema history, in fact) and mesh it with a galaxy far, far away.

‘Star Wars’ & Alfred Hitchock’s ‘North By Northwest’ Get Mashed Up In ‘Darth By Darthwest’

16 March 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

George Lucas and Alfred Hitchcock might not have much in common, but that didn’t stop Fabrice Mathieu from concocting the brilliant homage “Darth by Darthwest.”

A mash-up of Hitchcock’s classic 1959 movie “North By Northwest” and Lucas’ “Star Wars,” this six-minute film tries to blend the iconic Star Wars imagery we’re all familiar with — most notably a Tie Fighter, C-3Po and the Millennium Falcon — with the now-iconic scene of Cary Grant’s Roger O.

Vertigo Screens at The Hi-Pointe Saturday Morning – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

7 March 2017 5:59 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list so here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Alfred Hitchcock’s ten best films:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. »

‘Logan’: 10 Ways Hugh Jackman and James Mangold Convinced Fox to Make A Bold and Bloody Superhero Movie

3 March 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Logan” will open huge this weekend, but the well-reviewed R-rated “Wolverine” sequel starring Hugh Jackman will provide Hollywood with something it needs more than great box office: It means permission to challenge the status quo.

Studios are in trouble. Box office is down four percent for the year to date — and the main culprit is combining familiar franchise properties with tried-and-true formulas.

Of course, “Logan” is the 10th installment in the “X-Men” franchise, which 20th Century Fox launched 16 years ago with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. But “Wolverine” director James Mangold didn’t direct it like a sequel.

Here’s how Mangold threw out the studio rulebook — and why Fox let him.

1. Get the backing of a major star.

Immediately after finishing “Wolverine” in 2013, Jackman and Mangold had a chat: Did they want to do this movie again? “If there was one, it would be his last one,” Mangold told me in a telephone interview. »

Liam Neeson-Fronted Thriller The Commuter Bumped To 2018

23 February 2017 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the moment Pierre Morel’s Taken unlocked a very particular set of skills in Liam Neeson, the actor’s résumé has been a roller-coaster ride of triumphant highs (The Grey) and disappointing lows (Takens 2 and 3). But a patchy record has in no way cooled Neeson’s interest in the action genre, as he’ll soon be back, back, back, as an unassuming insurance salesman for The Commuter.

Pitched as North by Northwest meets Strangers on a TrainJaume Collet-Serra’s high-speed thriller was originally slated for a release in October, but we now have confirmation that The Commuter‘s journey won’t begin in earnest until January 12th, 2018. That’s a date it currently shares with Paramount’s animated flick Sherlock Gnomes, White Boy Rick and The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which was hit with a delay of its own following Dylan O’Brien’s serious set accident. »
