President Obama aligns with the people, names 'Boyhood' the best film of 2014

18 December 2014 5:52 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In politics, a Presidential endorsement can be the magic touch, imbuing a candidate with exposure and voter confidence. Does the same hold true in the Oscar race? The team behind "Boyhood" hopes so. Speaking to People Magazine (via The Huffington Post), President Obama revealed that he fell hard for the Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making, coming-of-age film. And he was kind of a quote-whore about it. "'Boyhood was a great movie," Obama told the magazine. “That, I think, was my favorite movie this year.” Is it too late to send out guild screeners emblazoned with that quote? Obama is, traditionally, a softy when it comes to movies and television. When People put him on the spot with the same question in 2012, the President named "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Life of Pi" and "Argo" as his favorites. He has told the press that "Modern Family" and "Parks and Recreation" are family favorites. »

Brad Pitt rides into the season on a Sherman tank in David Ayer's 'Fury'

10 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Ayer bit off a whole hell of a lot on the World War II drama "Fury." I'm not sure he could chew it all, but it's fascinating to watch the bevy of ideas bounce around on the screen nevertheless. It's a loud, bloody, gut-punching depiction, one that may or may not be too unsettling to appeal to Academy types but is still the best work Ayer has done, the most unflinching, and the most intriguing, certainly. In characterizing the movie as "one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season that will bring several World War II films," The New York Times had it pegged a few months back. This is the WWII your grandfather wouldn't talk about. It was bad. That point is probably driven home too much, even. "This is war, and war is hell." After all, you can only observe what a .50 caliber machine »

Hooked: Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins talk about Peter Panzerfaust

13 August 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins about transforming a literary icon into a swashbuckling World War II hero…

“My family is very musical, but I’m the only one who’s ever shown interest in creative writing,” explains Kurtis Wiebe (Green Wake) who won a Shuster Award for Outstanding Comic Book Writer in 2012.  “But, we grew up with stories very much being part of our lives.” Comic books were not part of reading childhood itinerary.  “Not until my mid-twenties when a friend bought me an issue of Walking Dead. I had no idea comics could be anything other than superhero stories, so it was a huge eye opener. I was never into superheroes; it never really caught my attention. The idea that you could tell any story you wanted with the medium was a huge appeal to me.”  The desire to take the comic book beyond the »

The Duke Yucks It Up In "McClintock!"

2 July 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Duke. There was only one man like him. The craggy face and squinted baby-blue eyes, with that drawling, patient voice that commanded authority with every “Pilgrim.” Those who knew him on set said that he was a true “presence,” and not that many stars were or are. He was a cinematic titan; still holding the record for the most leads roles (142) and a timeless icon of a certain man in a certain era. With a career of mostly dramas, Wayne discovered a funny bone with 1960’s North to Alaska, directed by Henry Hathaway, who would later get the actor his first and only Oscar for the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. With two ensemble epics just under his belt, The Longest Day and How The West Was Won, Wayne moved handedly back into the spotlight with McLintock!, a western slapstick riff with good values and men being men. »

Cinema Retro Commemorates The Real "Longest Day"

5 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

It was 70 years ago today that the greatest invasion in modern history took place, as Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of France to liberate Europe from the yoke of totalitarianism. Their sacrifices were not in vain. Brave men from forces of America, Great Britain and Canada led the charge with free French and Polish forces and supporting contingents from other nations including Australia,Norway and New Zealand. From the carnage, a better world emerged, though Eastern Europe would still suffer under the oppression of Communism for decades to come. West Germany would become a beacon of freedom and democracy, eventually reuniting with East Germany after the fall of the Soviet empire. There aren't many men still alive who can recall serving in the momentous events of June 6, 1944. But freedom loving people from across the globe owe them a debt of gratitude, along with those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Last Movie Star Makes Liman's Adventure Sci-Fier 'Exceptionally Entertaining'

5 June 2014 7:43 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Edge of Tomorrow’ review: Tom Cruise, the Last Movie Star, makes latest alien invasion movie ‘exceptionally entertaining’ (photo: Tom Cruise in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’) Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s popular illustrated novel All You Need Is Kill was originally published in 2004, and has seen a number of adaptations and republications, including serialization as an even more popular manga in Japan and, translated from the original, an American graphic novel recently republished as Edge of Tomorrow. The latter is a better title for a movie, particularly a summer blockbuster featuring the last movie star, the full depth and breadth of his star powers at work in every scene — as he is literally in every scene — turning what would have been a serviceable military sci-fi adventure movie into an exceptionally entertaining sci-fi drama that reminds one what the purpose of a movie star is: to make the audience care about characters and events they »

The Longest Day – The Memorial Day Blu Review

25 May 2014 9:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Sam Moffitt

With Memorial Day, Fourth of July and most importantly, another June 6th, (the 70th anniversary of the landing in Normandy called Operation Overlord but always referred to as D-Day) approaching, I thought it appropriate to shine a light on one of the greatest war movies ever made, if not the greatest, which details the invasion of Europe, step by step; Darryl F Zanuck’s super production The Longest Day.

Firstly I have to say, as I’ve said before, I am against war, being a practicing Nicheren Buddhist , a member of the Soka Gakkai International, I do not believe war is necessary. But even before taking up the practice of Buddhism I have questioned every war the United States has become involved in since Vietnam. Yet I also served four years in the Us Navy, in peacetime, true, but I did serve my time and was honorably discharged. »

D-Day the Sixth of June

3 March 2014 7:17 AM, PST | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Two soldiers - British colonel Wynter (Richard Todd) and American Captain Parker (Robert Taylor) - reminisce about their separate love affairs with the same woman as they prepare for the carnage on the Normandy beaches on D-Day. Don't expect heroics in The Longest Day or Saving Private Ryan mould - this is old-fashioned romance set against the backdrop of an imminent, world-changing conflict. »

Review: Criterion's "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963) Five Disc Release

Hollywood Goes "Mad"

By Raymond Benson

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, the 1963 classic epic comedy directed by Stanley Kramer, is one of those Hollywood train wrecks that you can’t help but like. It’s a one-of-a-kind all-star extravaganza featuring some of the biggest names of mostly 1950s and early 1960s comedy (and a good number of them were known primarily as television actor/comics rather than big screen performers). The United Artists release was one of a current trend of movie star ensemble film in which the producers attempt to throw in as many big names as possible (e.g. Exodus, Judgment at Nuremberg, The Longest Day). As Kramer himself states in a reunion extra that appears on Criterion’s new Blu-ray/DVD combo set, “It would be impossible to make today,” due to the salaries stars demand now. »
