Monster Movie Mondays – King Kong Escapes (1967)

30 June 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Monster Movie Mondays looks at King Kong Escapes

Director: Ishiro Honda

Release date: 1967

Also released as: King Kong, Frankenstein’s Son (Germany)

Appearing kaiju: King Kong, Mechani-Kong, Gorosaurus

In the early 1960s, Toho struck a deal with American producer John Beck (who was representing Willis O’Brian) to make a movie based on the King Kong character which would end up being 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla. The film was one of the most successful entries in the Godzilla franchise and is a beloved movie by fans of the King of the Monsters. Toho were keen to produce another Kong movie while they still had the rights and the character was set to star in Ebirah, Horror of the Deep only to be replaced with Godzilla as the movie rolled into production. He would return to screens though in the 1967 movie, King Kong Escapes.

Review: "A Hard Day's Night" (1964) Starring The Beatles; Criterion Dual Format Release

16 June 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

They Bought Us Love

By Raymond Benson 

Released in the summer of 1964, A Hard Day’s Night, starring The Beatles and directed by Richard Lester, is arguably the second most influential British film of that decade (the first being Goldfinger, coincidentally released the same year.). Why? For one thing, it brought The Beatles to a worldwide audience that was just getting to know them through their music. Secondly, it spawned imitations and knock-offs (The Monkees, anyone?) and is arguably the genesis of music videos—where would MTV have been without it? Thirdly, the film itself was innovative, fresh, and surprisingly funny (those long-haired boys from Liverpool could actually act!).

One of the best things about the Criterion Collection’s new deluxe box set of the film (dual Blu-ray and DVD, three discs) is the short extra, On the Road to “A Hard Day’s Night,” an interview with author Mark Lewisohn, »

New Spongebob SquarePants Poster Lands

9 June 2014 7:07 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There are few corners of culture more mystifying, more complex and baffling that the Spongebob Squarepants phenomenon. Here is a man - a spongeman - whose adventures make the subsea elements of Bedknobs And Broomsticks look like The Blue Planet. What creature, on god's good Earth, can be friends with a starfish and a squirrel? And live blissfully in an underwater pineapple, presumably a joint development by Dr. No and the Man From Del Monte? But Spongebob is that creature and he's back with another CG adventure in the second movie spin-off of the massive Nickelodeon show, The Spongebob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out Of Water. Here's the first poster showing Bob in action. With a crab. Little is known of the mesohyled one's journey in this one, but judging by the title and the tagline, he'll be emerging from the sea like Venus or, say, the Kraken, and destroying the seaboard going on adventures. »

No 'Tomorrow': Doug Liman on the Blockbuster That Almost Broke Him

6 June 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I was training to climb Mount Everest," Doug Liman says, motioning to the slim treadmill desk tucked into the corner of his Tribeca office space. "It was originally for a project I was going to do with Tom Hardy [about Everest climber George Mallory]…compared to the movie I was making, the thought of scaling a mountain seemed restful." The 48-year-old director starts shaking his head slowly. "It was like, 'Well, there won't be any exo-suits, there won't be any aliens, there won't be the challenge of trying to get an honest performance out of »

Answers to Can You Guess All The Moviesc Take Four!

2 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seemed like almost as soon as I posted this latest "Guess the Movies" installment Andre Marques had all the answers. That said, he was the only one that guessed that got them all and so I have no problem saying I think this was the most difficult installment yet and you'd better believe the next one will be even more difficult, though I will post that one closer to the middle of the week rather than on a Friday so I can keep closer tabs on your progress and get involved a little bit more. So, with that I bring you all the answers to the graphic and I'd also like to give a shout out to One Perfect Shot as each screen capture was from recent posts on their site, a great place to keep an eye on once a month or so.

Bunny Yeager, Photographer of Bettie Page Pinups, Dead at 85

25 May 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bunny Yeager, a model turned pin-up photographer who helped jump-start the career of then-unknown Bettie Page, died Sunday, her agent said. She was 85 years old. Yeager died at a North Miami hospice where she had been for about a week, her agent, Ed Christin said. Yeager's legacy is her cultural impact, from pin-up photography and fashion, helping to popularize the bikini, and influencing other artists such as Cindy Sherman, who read Yeager's guides on photographing nudes and making self-portraits, Christin said. "Anyone in Miami in the 1950s who wanted a bikini would come to her, and she'd make one," he said. »

Marvelous Da7e #47: You Must Remember Days of Franchise Past

21 May 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to The Marvelous Da7e #47!

This Week: Some prep for your viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past this weekend.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is a very interesting movie for reasons that have little or nothing to do with the plot of the film. So soon after seeing how Amazing Spider-Man 2 launched a Universe of Spider-Man, we’ll be exposed to the other method of megafranchise building: the series retcon.

Is it retroactive continuity? Is it a mash-up? I haven’t seen something like this since maybe GoldenEye in 1995, and I’m not sure how to feel about it.

First things first, this is Not a review of the movie. Those are embargoed until tomorrow, and I’ll have one for you. As a matter of fact, I’ve been sent into my Wednesday body from the future to not make this column a review, because of »

12 Perfect Casting Choices That Launched Major Film Franchises

14 May 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Typecasting is a dirty word to an actor. To be typecast means that producers, casting directors, directors, other actors and especially the film-going public can’t see you in any other role.

However, what some actors rebel against, others use to pay the bills, even years after the original role has long since disappeared from view. So here’s a list of twelve actors who were perfectly cast for the roles they were given, and have become indelibly stamped in our minds whenever we think of that character, for better or worse.

The criteria here is that the star in question must have carried the role for at least three films and become so identified with it that it’s hard, if not downright impossible, to consider someone else for it.

Let’s get to it;

Actors Who’ve Played the Same Character the Most Times

12 May 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Hugh Jackman currently negotiating to play Wolverine for a seventh and eighth time, Cinelinx takes a look at actors who’ve played the same role eight times or more. Who has played the same character most often? Come in and find out.

Hugh Jackman has already played Wolverine five times--x-Men (2000),  X2: X-Men United (2003) X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and The Wolverine (2013)—as well as a cameo in X-Men:First Class (2011). Soon we’ll be seeing him fully clawed again on the big screen in X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Recently, he told Collider that he might shoot Wolverine 3 and X-Men: Apocalypse “back-to-back”, which would make a total of eight times (9 times with the cameo) that he’ll portray the Canadian mutant.  

You might be thinking “Wow! That’s amazing! I’ve never heard of anyone playing the same role so many times.” Well, for those who may not know it, »

From Russia With Love's Visual Style

8 April 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On the 50th anniversary of "From Russia With Love"'s Us release our friend and James Bond expert Deborah Lipp (she even wrote a book about him!) is here to talk 007...

Sean Connery in "From Russia With Love" released 50 years ago today in the States

After 23 official films and 2 unofficial ones, From Russia With Love, the second James Bond adventure, remains the greatest of them all. Considered an iconic film in many ways, it may surprise the casual Bond viewer to note that certain "iconic" aspects of the Bond franchise were missing from or created in this film.

Let's focus on From Russia With Love's extraordinary visual signature on this anniversary

The first James Bond film, Dr. No, featured the production design of Ken Adam. Adam is justifiably famous. In Dr. No, he designed such sets as the nuclear launch room, and, needing one last set when the budget ran out, »

Last weekend (Saturday 22nd March) I had the pleasure of being invited to Jean and Dickie Bamber's Diamond Wedding anniversary celebrations held at Heatherden Hall, Pinewood Studios. Dickie has worked in the film industry for over 50 years on productions such as Genevieve, The Ipcress File, Thunderball, Battle of Britain, A Bridge Too Far and many of the Carry On comedies, to name but a few. Their son Terry, himself a veteran of the industry, and who I first met on the set of the James Bond film GoldenEye, did his parent's proud.

Dennis O’Neil: Complexly Evolving A Bible

6 March 2014 5:07 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Settle down, now.  Sure, the Oscars have got you all excited, but for heaven’s sake, try to relax.  Take some deep breaths while we return to where we left off last week.

The subject, a week ago, was how mythology and religion had more or less parallel evolutions…  Well, not exactly that: more how what could be a subhead in the mythology section evolved in parallel with another such subhead, comic books.

Both began as technology-spawned mutations of forms that already existed: (drama>movies; comic strips>comic books.)  Both began with stories that were simple, plot driven and self-contained – “this episode” was all there was to this particular narrative.  And, over decades, both changed, in storytelling technique, in the kinds of stories told, and, finally, in the content of those stories.  Heroes became flawed, villains became motivated, plots became complex and, finally, in comic books, the complete-in-one-episode paradigm started fraying at the edges, »

Big turning points in the James Bond movie franchise

20 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Michael Reed 21 Feb 2014 - 05:56

We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »

Seven On-Screen Murderers We Just Can’t Help but Love

17 February 2014 7:14 AM, PST | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Here at Reelz, we have been watching a lot of our daytime programming, and after seeing the true-crime stories featured on Snapped, Solved and Solved: Extreme Forensics, we were amazed at how likable and upstanding murderers can be. But maybe it shouldn't be a surprise, considering how many of our favorite fictional killers are charming and empathetic. In honor of all those upstanding murderers, we bring you our top seven fictional characters who have had some experience with homicide.

Walter White from Breaking Bad

The total count of lives taken by the hands of Walter White gets pretty high when you factor in the group of Neo-Nazis he hired to kill off nine witnesses and one lawyer who were former employees of drug lord Gus Fring. Don’t forget the many deaths he is indirectly responsible for.

Why we like him: The reason we root for the great Walter White »

Fleming episode 1 review

11 February 2014 10:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Rob Smedley 12 Feb 2014 - 22:00

Sky's glossy four-part Ian Fleming biopic is a sexy affair. Here's Rob's review of episode one...

This review contains spoilers.

Ian Fleming was good at sex. Writing it, that is. And not just in the way James Bond bedded women with the frequency of a man allergic to standing up. Fleming made sure everything in 007's literary adventures was writ sexy: destinations, clothes, food, drink, cars, planes, even décor... everything in Bond's life was veneered with the seductive, the alluring. It still is. Well, you only live twice, why not make it fun?

It was an especially potent cocktail when he first introduced Bond's 'shagnanigans' to the grey British public in 1953. It was the post-war era of austerity, when rationing was still in place and most people hadn't ventured further than Clacton-on-Sea, and even then that was only for some thoroughly workmanlike, 'best undergarments, »

John Travolta as Bond Baddie? ‘I Would Love That’

9 February 2014 3:48 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

John Travolta would say yes to playing the next Dr. No. The “Saturday Night Fever” and “Pulp Fiction” star said being a baddie in a 007 film is a dream that he’d like to see become reality, and would let him “close the chapter” on playing villains. “I would love that,” he said in an interview with the U.K.’s Telegraph. “They’re going a different way with their villain in this next film but I’ve spoken to (Bond movie producer) Barbara Broccoli about it and she loves the idea, so that would be great.” Also read: John Travolta »

Retro Coolness: Watch a Rare Interview with Sean Connery Talking James Bond, Circa 1964

7 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

  Here’s a 1964 video of Sean Connery being a babe and discussing his most famous role, Zed in Zardoz… wait. We mean, James Bond in Dr. No. The first film in the spy series hit the big screen in 1962, and Connery took to the camera to discuss his thoughts about the role. He seems all over the place during the interview, but praises the “refreshing” character, the color photography, and says stuff about “sexual fantasies” more than once, natch. Connery states that he did read one of Ian Fleming’s novels before accepting the role of the gentleman gun for hire. He also notes that he added a lot of his own humor to the part. Then there’s a brief chat about Connery’s female audience, but his Scottish brogue distracted us...
