9 April 2014 7:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“One time Atticus said you never really knew a man until you stood in his shoes and walked around in them; just standin’ on the Radley porch was enough. The summer that had begun so long ago had ended, and another summer had taken its place, and a fall, and Boo Radley had come out.”

9 April 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gone with the Wind’ actress Mary Anderson dead at 96; also featured in Alfred Hitchcock thriller ‘LifeboatMary Anderson, an actress featured in both Gone with the Wind and Alfred Hitchcock’s adventure thriller Lifeboat, died following a series of small strokes on Sunday, April 6, 2014, while under hospice care in Toluca Lake/Burbank, northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Anderson, the widow of multiple Oscar-winning cinematographer Leon Shamroy, had turned 96 on April 3. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1918, Mary Anderson was reportedly discovered by director George Cukor, at the time looking for an actress to play Scarlett O’Hara in David O. Selznick’s film version of Margaret Mitchell’s bestseller Gone with the Wind. Instead of Scarlett, eventually played by Vivien Leigh, Anderson was cast in the small role of Maybelle Merriwether — most of which reportedly ended up on the cutting-room floor. Cukor was later fired from the project; his replacement, Victor Fleming, »

Six of The Best Literary Adaptations

4 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

If you’re a fan of literary adaptations then no doubt you’ll currently have your head stuck in a copy of Joyce Maynard’s emotional coming-of-age novel Labor Day, Nick Hornby’s heart-warming suicide drama A Long Way Down, or maybe even Veronica Roth’s debut dystopian Divergent. What we’re looking forward to most, however, is Richard Ayoade’s upcoming adaptation of Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s dark comedy novella, The Double. With an adapted screenplay written by Ayoade himself alongside fellow scribe Avi Korine, this is his first film since the hugely successful Submarine.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska as the two leads, the story follows a man driven insane after finding out his life and identity is being assumed by a doppelgänger. The original novella was released in 1846, subtitled “A Petersburg Poem” it showed the surreal and grotesque influences of fellow Russian novelist Nikolai Gogol, »

My guilty pleasure: Liar Liar

2 April 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It may be a formulaic knockabout comedy, but beneath the surface of this early Jim Carrey outing lurks a compelling honesty and an important life lesson

Courtrooms and curses: two anchoring Hollywood notions. Audiences love a courtroom drama. And they'll buy in to a curse any curse, from a body swap to a distasteful compulsion or an unwanted power as long as there's an adorable kid involved in its conception or application.

I like to think that when screenwriters Paul Guay and Stephen Mazur first sketched out Liar Liar, they'd just emerged from back-to-back screenings of To Kill a Mockingbird and Big, or maybe Twelve Angry Men and Vice Versa (a film from 1988, should you be unfamiliar with it, in which Fred Savage, with the help of a magical Buddhist skull, curses Judge Reinhold to spend a week as a preteen). Guay and Mazur saw a curse and a courtroom »

Peter O'Toole: Academy pays tribute at 2014 Oscars

2 March 2014 7:56 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Eight time Oscar nominee, best known for David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia, remembered at Oscar ceremony

• Xan Brooks liveblogs the ceremony

• Full list of winners as they're announced

The Oscars paid tribute to Peter O'Toole, the celebrated star of Lawrence of Arabia who died last year – devoting part of its traditional In Memoriam section to the actor.

O'Toole was nominated eight times for the best actor Oscar, but was unsuccessful in winning any, though he was partly compensated by being given an honorary Academy award in 2003. His Oscar-night losses included some of his best-known roles, among them Te Lawrence in 1962, the title role in Becket in 1964, and mentally ill aristocrat Jack Gurney in The Ruling Class in 1972, when he was defeated by Gregory Peck (To Kill a Mockingbird), Rex Harrison (My Fair Lady) and Marlon Brando (The Godfather) respectively. His final nomination came in 2006 for Venus, when he lost »

The greatest Best Actor race? Where does this year's class rank in Oscar history?

24 February 2014 3:20 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This year’s Best Actor race is shaping up to be one of the greatest of all time. And by greatest, I mean both the most competitive and also the most outstanding, in the sense that each nominee is excellent — hypothetical winners in almost any other year. They also reflect the depth of superb male performances in 2013. Consider: Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips), Robert Redford (All Is Lost), Joaquin Phoneix (Her), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) all missed the cut.

EW’s Owen Gleiberman recently analyzed this year’s Best Actor race, calling it the most “fiercely, »

2013 Best Picture: Which Films Will Stand the Test of Time?

24 February 2014 11:36 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert

Contributor

In less than a week, the Academy will crown its 2013 Best Picture and, soon after, we’ll all move on to 2014. But which of the current films will stand the test of time? Which ones will we re-watch, now and later, despite massive influxes of new movies? Some of this year’s films, we’ll find, are “re-watchable,” while others fill us up after one viewing. Here’s my look at the nine Best Picture contenders and how I think they’ll fare down the road.

12 Years a Slave

This is a film that needs to–and will–stand the test of time. The source of its longevity, years later, will be the poignant performances and powerful scenes that burn into our memories, as when Solomon Northrup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) clings barely to life from a noose on the plantation. But the film is difficult to watch, »

Oscar producers: Hitchockian heroine, and 'new' superhero among Academy Award plans -- Exclusive

21 February 2014 3:19 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Oscar is holding out for a hero.

The March 2 ceremony will be flexing its muscles this year, with the overall theme being a tribute to movie characters who save the day.

Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan sat down to talk with EW about what they’ve got in store: including an appearance by an iconic Hitchcockian femme fatale, and a tribute to superheroes that they (surprisingly) promise will bring viewers to tears.

The producers — who have made feature films such as Chicago and The Bucket List, and TV specials like the recent live broadcast of The Sound of Music »

Oscar Winner Hoffman, Child Star Temple Honored with Library of Congress Screenings

20 February 2014 5:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Shirley Temple, and Oscar movies: Library of Congress’ March 2014 screenings (photo: Philip Seymour Hoffman as Truman Capote in ‘Capote’) Tributes to the recently deceased Shirley Temple and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and several Academy Award-nominated and -winning films are among the March 2014 screenings at the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus Theater and, in collaboration with the Library’s National Audio-Visual Conservation Center, The State Theatre, both located in Culpeper, Virginia. The 1934 sentimental comedy-drama Little Miss Marker (March 6, Packard) is the movie that turned six-year-old Shirley Temple into a major film star. Temple would become the biggest domestic box-office draw of the mid-1930s, and, Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Sonja Henie, Don Ameche, Loretta Young, and Madeleine Carroll notwithstanding, would remain 20th Century Fox’s top star until later in the decade. Directed by Alexander Hall (Here Comes Mr. Jordan, My Sister Eileen), Little Miss Marker — actually, a Paramount »

9 Actors Who Earned Oscar Nominations For Playing Real People And Didn’t Deserve It

17 February 2014 8:35 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

We’re less than two weeks away from the Oscars, and that means it’s once again time for my favorite activity: griping about the past!

One of my biggest Oscar pet peeves is when actors who portray real-life roles garner more attention — for no good reason — than actors who portray fictional characters. The Academy has long been too pleased with big-named thespians who prove they can imitate recognizable figures. Sometimes the attention is justified (Sean Penn in Milk and Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose come to mind), but often real-life roles become filler nominees in the supporting categories. Here are nine examples of Oscar-nominated performances that caught fire with the academy simply for being based on a known personality.

1. Jason Robards as Howard Hughes in Melvin and Howard

Melvin and Howard is a movie that teaches you to appreciate its examination of a Utah man’s humdrum lower-middle-class existence, »

What Are the Best Movies Adapted from Books?

If you've read Robert M. Edsel's nonfiction novel The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History, then you're sure to be looking forward to the movie version out this Friday. The adaptation, simply titled The Monuments Men, is cowritten and directed by and stars George Clooney along with Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. That's some cast for the true WWII tale of a special mission to save priceless art from Hitler and the Third Reich.  On the occasion of this book-to-movie release, I'd like to share my own five favorite adaptations and then hear from you about your own picks.  1.

People's TV Critic: Lifetime's Flowers In the Attic Is Crazy Good

18 January 2014 9:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Flowers in the Attic is the rare Lifetime movie (it airs Saturday at 8 p.m. Et/Pt) that can't simply be written off as a Lifetime movie. It's so pure and perverse an example of American Gothic, I felt compelled to read the original Vc Andrews novel to try and comprehend what sort of imagination could hatch such a nutty story - a fairy tale, really, that somehow combines Hansel and Gretel and The Blue Lagoon. In Virginia horse country. Flowers, both the book and the new movie, is completely absurd - if you want to gauge the absurdity, just »
