Lawrence Of Arabia Screens September 21st at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

18 September 2016 7:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“No Arab loves the desert. We love water and green trees. There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing.”

Lawrence Of Arabia screens Wednesday September 21st at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as part of their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

“Greatest biopic ever”…”Genius in 70mm”…”A Miracle of a Movie”…

All these statements were said somewhere about director David Lean’s Lawrence Of Arabia and it’s understandable. It was some kind of madness to make a movie like this in 1962. Working in the middle of desert for such a long time, those extraordinary ways of cinematographer Freddie Young, and working with that huge number of actors (and camels).

But it all worked. Lawrence Of Arabia is more than a glorious, expensive, old biopic movie. »

The hills are alive with The Sound Of Music Wednesday night at The Tivoli.  Julie Andrews takes to the screen in this beloved 1965 film adaption of the original Broadway musical and gives a dazzling performance as the spirited Maria who warms our hearts and takes us away into a lovely world of song. The Sound Of Music is set in Salzberg in Austria in the dying days of the 1930s. Rebellious trainee nun Maria (Andrews) has stepped on the toes of the Mother Abbess (Peggy Wood) one too many times and she finds herself shipped off »

Jackie Chan to Be Awarded an Honorary Oscar

2 September 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After decades of death-defying stunts, broken bones and a ton of classic movies, martial arts legend Jackie Chan is finally getting an Oscar. Chan, along with several others, will be presented with an honorary Oscar at the Academy's 8th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 12. After more than 50 years in the business, Chan has very well earned this honor.

The Academy announced on Thursday that the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had voted to bestow the honor to Chan, who's first acting credit dates all the way back to 1962. The actor got his first major break in the action/comedy Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in 1978, and the martial arts world has never quite been the same since. Here's what Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs had to say about it in a statement.

Jackie Chan will receive a well-deserved honourary Oscar in November

2 September 2016 12:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Martial arts/ action movie legend Jackie Chan will received an honourary Oscar from the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in November.

He will be awarded the lifetime achievement award along with editor Anne Coates, casting director Lynn Stalmaster and documentary maker Frederick Wiseman.

Chan, now 62, has appeared in over 100 productions over his multiple decade long career. Starting out in Hong Kong’s martial arts cinema, Chan became an international star with films like Police Story before heading west to Hollywood to act in films like Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon. He most recently lent his voice to Kung Fu Panda 3, and appears in this weekend’s Us release Skiptrace, opposite Johnny Knoxville.

Editor Anne Coates has over 50 credits to her name as editor in her 60+ year career. The British editor has worked on the likes of Lawrence of Arabia, for which she won the Oscar, as well as Chaplin, »

Wes Craven's version of Lawrence of Arabia? Ok, maybe not, but this is one of the best latter day uses of the metaphoric desert setting so familiar from 50s sci fi movies. The fan base it engendered resulted in a sequel and a 2006 remake which itself spawned a sequel. Originally rated X but cut to secure an R, there are various versions of the original in circulation. The Anchor Bay dvd release is the most complete. »

Honorary Oscars to Jackie Chan, Frederick Wiseman, Lynn Stalmaster, and Anne V Coates

1 September 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Board of Governors from AMPAS have finally announced their selections for this year's Honorary Oscars. This year they're not giving out the Thalberg (for Producing) or the Hersholt (for Huminatarian efforts) but just the regular ol' Honorary Oscars. If such a thing can be deemed "regular" since they're so hard to come by. Consider that James Ivory still doesn't have one despite being a masterful oft imitated but never duplicated director behind three major Best Picture contenders (and many other beautiful films) and never having won an an Oscar and being 88 years old. Nathaniel wept. Oscar remains remarkably stingy with the gays but at least they've noticed the need for diversity in other ways.

Congratulations to this year's esteemed recipients! 

Jackie Chan's starmaking hit The Legend of Drunken Master (1978)

Superstar Jackie Chan

He's a famous actor, producer, and director and his filmography is just enormous with well over 100 films under his belt. »

Newswire: The Academy is giving Jackie Chan an honorary Oscar

1 September 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Jackie Chan’s never been nominated for an Oscar. That’s at least partially because the Academy tends to turn a blind eye to martial arts-infused action comedies, which is its loss. However, Hollywood’s governing body hasn’t entirely ignored the fact that Chan is an icon, as The Rush Hour star is getting an honorary prize at this year’s Governors Awards. He’s also the second highest-paid actor in the world on Forbes’ list this year, so it’s not a bad time to be Jackie Chan.

Chan joins an eclectic group of four honorary Oscar recipients this year, two of whom worked behind the scenes to shape beloved movies: Anne V. Coates was the editor on such titles as Lawrence Of Arabia and Erin Brockovich, and Lynn Stalmaster was the casting director of In The Heat Of The Night, The Graduate, and Deliverance. (Those titles, which »

Ben-hur (1959) Screens September 7th at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

30 August 2016 9:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“When the Romans were marching me to the galleys, thirst had almost killed me. A man gave me water to drink, and I went on living. I should have done better if I’d poured it into the sand!”

Ben-hur (1959) screens Wednesday September 7th at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as the inaugural feature in their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

The recent Ben-hur cost over 100 million dollars to make and is already being called the bomb of the summer. That’s too bad, because I think it’s actually quite good. It was made for a modern audience and runs 132 minutes. The 1959 version of Ben-hur costs 16 million to make and lasts 100 minutes more than the new remake. I wonder if today’s attention-challenged audiences would have flocked to »

Watch a Video Essay on the Crisp Edits of David Lean

29 August 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it cuts. Maestro director David Lean is renowned for his remarkable skills as a director, helming massive feats of cinema such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Bridge on the River Kwai. What seems to be less remarked upon regarding the director, it seems, is his knack for the edit. A video essay by Andrew Saladino delves into the often seamless, don’t-focus-on-it-and-you-won’t-notice-it style of editing that often runs throughout Lean’s work.

Fond of audio bridges, Lean would often seamlessly blend a transition with music, diegetic sound(s), or a combination of the two. These make for effortless flow throughout the narrative, guiding audiences through his worlds. However, he was just as good at jarring the audience when needed: building sounds in a particular scene and then dropping all of them on the cut. This style of edit the audience feels more viscerally, »

‘Classics In The Loop’ – New Film Series at The Tivoli Begins With Ben-hur (1959) Sept. 7th

23 August 2016 3:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There’s nothing more fun than getting to watch classic movies the way they were intended–on the big screen!

Now, I understand plenty of people don’t want to go to a theater, spend a fortune on tickets, popcorn, and a drink just to see the glow of cell phones and hear people rudely talking while someone kicks your seat from behind, but that’s not the experience you’ll get at Landmark theaters newly-announced (and affordable) film series. St. Louis movie buffs are in for a treat as Landmark’s The Tivoli Theater will run it’s ‘Classics on the Loop’ every Wednesday beginning September 7th at 7pm. The Tivoli will screen, on their big screen (which seats 320 btw), the type of epic, widescreen masterpiece that needs to be seen in a theater with an audience. Admission is only $7.

One benefits of the big screen is that you »

Top Ten Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Ben-Hur’ Is Biggest Flop Among Wimpy Openers

22 August 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The studios often save the dog days of August for their weakest performers and sure enough, this weekend proved the rule. (In the past,  “The Butler” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Straight Outta Compton” did strong business in August.) Yes, “Suicide Squad” grossed over $20 million, as it became the first non-animated film to have a three-peat at number one since “Dead Pool.” But three weak new releases— “Ben-Hur” (Paramount), “War Dogs” (Warner Bros.) and “Kubo and the Two Strings” (Focus) —opened to less than $15-million.

Making it even more challenging for this trio of weak domestic performers to make their money back: None are scheduled to open in China, which is increasingly the second and sometimes biggest single territory for theatrical grosses. That’s a big deal in a studio world increasingly shifting its focus on a sure thing.
