Amanda’s Adaptations: To Kill a Mockingbird – Book Vs Film

25 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Reading To Kill a Mockingbird as a teenager had a massive impact on me. The powerful story with messages about tolerance, understanding and trying to see life from another’s perspective really opened my eyes to the everyday injustices of the world.

Harper Lee’s book is written from two perspectives in a way – a woman looking back at her childhood and that same child looking out into the world and asking questions adults didn’t dare ask. As a central character, Scout is miraculous. She is inquisitive and naughty but ultimately good. She tries to do her best, it’s just that her best frequently rubs people up the wrong way. Whether it’s the neighbours telling her off for dressing like a boy or her teacher telling her off for knowing how to read, the only person Scout seems to be able to be herself with is her father Atticus. »

Exclusive Premiere: Shovels & Rope's dark new song, 'Evil': Listen

23 July 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, collectively known as Shovels & Rope, release their sophomore set “Swimmin’ Time,” Aug. 26. The set follows the husband and wife duo's highly acclaimed breakthrough, ‘O’ Be Joyful,” a set of largely acoustic tales that featured their voices wrapping around each other and slithering in and out of stomping melodies, especially on the semi-autobiographical, “Birmingham,” which was named Song of the Year at the 2013 Americana Music Awards. One of the best tunes on “Swimmin’ Time” is the swampy, dark “Evil,” a story about two misfits, a young tomboy and an older man, who is emotionally lost following the sudden death of his wife and an accident that leaves him brain damaged. “The rough little girl takes pity on him and his children, bringing them apples, him, cigarettes and helping with the kids,” Hearst and Trent tell HitFix. “Their interaction raises suspicion in the small town, and »

The Decline of Harper Lee

20 July 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For Monroeville, Alabama, population 6,400 and shrinking, the summer of 2010 was momentous. Over a long July weekend, locals reenacted historical vignettes, held a silent auction, cooked a southern feast, and led tours of local landmarks. There was a documentary screening, two lawn parties, and a marathon reading of the novel whose 50th anniversary was the grand occasion. To Kill a Mockingbird, which needs no introduction — because it is the introduction, for most American children, to civil rights, literature, and the justice system — had sold nearly a million copies for each year in print. There were at least 50 other celebrations nationwide, but the epicenter was Monroeville, a place whose only real industry (the lingerie plant having recently shuttered) was Mockingbird-related tourism. It was not only the model for the novel’s fictional Maycomb but the home of its author, Harper Lee. She lived less than a mile from »

Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems

5 July 2014 8:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When mixing black and white movie characters as either friends or foes on the big screen should not produce any gray areas at all. Whether amiable or adversarial the pairing of interracial tandems makes for an interesting sociological study in cinema where tension, togetherness, stereotypical profiling and mutual or reluctant acceptance makes for some captivating film fodder.

Sure, in many ways it is an overused cliched in the movies to produce racial tandems for the sake of the entertainment to allow the creative juices to overflow. In Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems we will take a look at various “salt and pepper” teams as they come together in the name of law and justice, hostile necessity, friendly frivolity or professional attachment to bring movie audiences a sense of adventure and curiosity in the name of comedic or dramatic license.

It’s About the Message: The Top 10 Oscar-winning Socially Aware Films

14 June 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Many moviegoers consider the world of film as a reprieve from their current existing realities. This is rather interesting because in looking to escape the everyday realities for a fantasized slice of reality in cinema might seem quite redundant for some folks. However, the realities that are portrayed on the big screen are varied so whatever life experiences are depicted we may not have quite lived that particular episode therefore making it intriguing and fresh for our entertaining curiosities.

Films, when capturing a fragrance of reality through triumph and tragedy, are usually armed with a special messaging about the human condition through sacrifice, self-discovery, suffering and of course social awareness.  In It’s About the Message: The Top 10 Oscar-winning Socially Aware Films we will take a look at Academy Award-winning movies that dared to examine the spirit about being socially aware–through inspiration and insidiousness (or both simultaneously)–and put »

‘Everwood’ Reunion: Cast and Creator Remember Show’s Cancellation, Original Pitch

10 June 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Atx Television Festival played host to an “Everwood” reunion on June 7, gathering creator Greg Berlanti, producer Jordan Levin, writer-producers David Hudgins and Rina Mimoun, composer Blake Neely and cast members Gregory Smith, Stephanie Niznik, Tom Amandes, Vivien Cardone, Sarah Drew, Debra Mooney, John Beasley and Brenda Strong for a nostalgic Q&A. Fellow stars Emily VanCamp, Chris Pratt and Treat Williams were unable to make the panel, hosted at Austin’s State Theater, but VanCamp and Williams recorded video messages, while Pratt called in during the panel via FaceTime to thank fans for their support of the WB drama.

Although “Everwood” went off the air in 2006, the show was clearly still fresh in the minds of the cast and the assembled fans, and many tears were shed both on stage and in the audience as the actors recalled the four years they spent in Utah filming the series.

“The Social Network”: The Top 25 (Best Adapted Screenplay)

9 June 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go again folks with another Top 25 article today. This time around I’ll be tackling one of the big eight categories in an effort not to save them all for last. Adapted Screenplay field. The category is one that usually has a big tie in with Best Picture, as you’ll below to some degree. Oscar tends to like their big glossy adaptations, but they do go for some offbeat things here and there in this particular category. I have a few specific titles I’ll be citing in detail later on in this piece, but I know how the game works here by now. You all mostly just want to see the lists I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good folks there in that particular regard once again. All you have to do is just be patient over the next few paragraphs and »

See This/Skip That: An All But Flawless The Fault in Our Stars

6 June 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Based on John Green's ginormously popular Ya novel, this is a sweet, simple, dignified movie about young lovers whose every move is chaperoned by death. It seems safe to say that it will have millions of people verklempt between now and forever. When they meet in a cancer support group, Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and  Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) share a sense of gallows humor, but she considers her  foreshortened life with pointed intensity, and he stays afloat (sometimes desperately)  with gallant charm. Where they connect - and the pair do connect, wholly - is on a  level of existential and romantic bliss. »

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre – All My Sons Review

2 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre returns this summer with another stellar line-up of plays – and currently on the bill is Timothy Sheader’s stellar adaptation of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. Coming on the heels of a highly successful West End version of the classic play just a few years ago, Sheader’s production is inevitably a no-frills arrangement by comparison – but it uses its venue wonderfully to its strengths.

Taking place over the course of one night in small-town 50s America, All My Sons concerns two families bound by love and war. At the centre of it all is a character only ever referred to by name – dead soldier Larry Keller, who never came home from the war. His mother Kate (Brid Brennan) refuses to move on, waiting for her son to return; meanwhile, his brother Chris (Charles Aitken) announces his engagement to Larry’s sweetheart Ann »

One of Earliest Surviving Academy Award Nominees in Acting Categories Dead at 88

Joan Lorring, 1945 Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, dead at 88: One of the earliest surviving Academy Award nominees in the acting categories, Lorring was best known for holding her own against Bette Davis in ‘The Corn Is Green’ (photo: Joan Lorring in ‘Three Strangers’) Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Joan Lorring, who stole the 1945 film version of The Corn Is Green from none other than Warner Bros. reigning queen Bette Davis, died Friday, May 30, 2014, in the New York City suburb of Sleepy Hollow. So far, online obits haven’t mentioned the cause of death. Lorring, one of the earliest surviving Oscar nominees in the acting categories, was 88. Directed by Irving Rapper, who had also handled one of Bette Davis’ biggest hits, the 1942 sudsy soap opera Now, Voyager, Warners’ The Corn Is Green was a decent if uninspired film version of Emlyn Williams’ semi-autobiographical 1938 hit play about an English schoolteacher, »
