The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Screens at The St. Louis Public Library August 6th

31 July 2016 8:13 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Every gun makes its own tune.”

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly  screens at The St. Louis Public Library Central Branch (1301 Olive Street St. Louis) Saturday, August 6th at 1pm. This is a Free event. 

There’s a new film series in town! To celebrate the Summer Reading Program theme, “Worlds of Wonder,” Central Cinema at the St. Louis Library will be screening some of the most unique and fantastical films ever shown on the big screen. This weekend is Sergio Leone’s 1966 epic The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.

In 1964, Clint Eastwood accepted the lead role in a Western being filmed in Spain titled “The Magnificent Stranger.” The part had been offered to many of Hollywood’s most rugged actors, including Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, and Charles Bronson. Eastwood, on break from his TV series Rawhide and looking for a film project, immediately recognized the story as »

‘Before’ Trilogy: Beautiful Video Shows Parallel Emotion From All Three of Linklater’s Films

28 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinematic trilogies tend to be epic in scope: “The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Wars,” “A Fistful of Dollars.” Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy — 1995’s “Before Sunrise,” 2004’s “Before Sunset” and 2013’s “Before Midnight” — is an exception to that and many other rules, not least because it was never actually intended as a trilogy. The films simply come about one every decade or so, each of them feeling organic and necessary rather than tacked-on additions to a once-perfect story. In a new video, the parallels among the three films are laid out simultaneously.

Happy 86th Birthday Clint Eastwood! Here Are His Ten Best Films

31 May 2016 5:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 86 years old. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit. Sully, his new movie as a director, opens in September.

We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here

Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

By the 1980s, Clint Eastwood was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.  With his own production company, directorial skills, and economic clout, Eastwood was able to make smaller, more personal films.  A perfect example is the underrated Honkytonk Man, which also happens to be one of Eastwood’s finest performances. »

Sergio Leone's Heirs To Launch Western TV Series, "Colt"

27 May 2016 3:50 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Variety reports that the family of the late director Sergio Leone is developing a six-episode Western TV series titled "Colt" based upon a concept that Leone had planned with his collaborators but which was never realized. His goal was to present the American West in a more realistic manner than had been seen in his classic "spaghetti Westerns". The focus would be on the handgun used by The Man With No Name, portrayed by Clint Eastwood in the classic "A Fistful of Dollars". The episodes would follow the trail of that gun as it passes from owner to owner. The first two episodes will be directed by Stefano Sollima, the high profile Italian filmmaker and son of Sergio Sollima, who directed Lee Van Cleef in the cult Italian Western "The Big Gundown".  Stefano will also be writing the scripts for the series. Unlike Sergio Leone's Westerns, »

Sergio Leone’s Heirs to Produce Spaghetti Western TV Series Titled ‘Colt’ (Exclusive)

25 May 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italy’s expanding Leone Film Group is venturing into the Spaghetti Western territory so dear to its late great founder with an English-language TV series titled “Colt,” based on an idea developed by Sergio Leone, master of the genre.

The concept is centered around the six-shooter packed by Clint Eastwood in “For a Fistful of Dollars.”

“It’s from my father’s idea in which the gun was the main character and the device through which the tale is told,” said Raffaella Leone, who now runs Leone Film Group with her brother Andrea.

“We are thinking of six episodes, each one connected to a single gun shot. But we could do more,” she added.

Italian director Stefano Sollima, who has made a name for himself helming Sky’s naturalistic Neapolitan mob drama “Gomorra,” which is Italy’s all time top TV export, will direct the first two episodes and act as showrunner. »

Watch: Restore your love in movies, here’s short film ‘100 Years/100 Shots’

22 April 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.

Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies. See beneath the video embed below for the full list (in order) used.

The Forgotten: Hobart Henley's "The Big Pond" (1930)

14 April 2016 6:47 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I find it impossible to believe anyone called Hobart Henley could ever be a great film director, but on the other hand, I also find it impossible to dislike a film director called Hobart Henley. It's too much fun reading his name in a credits sequence.Henley had been an actor, which seems to account for his preposterous, alliterative name, except it seems that really was his name, not a stage contrivance. He directed numerous silent films from the teens on, all of them obscure, but his late-career outpouring of a few cute pre-Codes is better remembered. Night World (1932) is enjoyable, and Roadhouse Nights (1930) is remarkable for being the only official adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest (unofficial source material for Yojimbo, A Fistful of Dollars, Last Man Standing...), only you wouldn't know it because it reached the screen as a Jimmy Durante musical.

Mauro Bolognini’S Commedia All’Italiana ‘Arabella’ (1967) Starring Virna Lisi; New On UK Region 2 DVD From Simply Media

4 April 2016 4:03 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Howard Hughes

New to DVD in the UK is ‘Arabella’, an Italian period comedy set in that hotbed of hilarity, pre-wwii fascist Italy. Virna Lisi stars in the title role – known variously in the film as Arabella Danesi and Arabella Angeli – who determines to save her grandmother from destitution by finding ingenious ways to pay off her elderly relative’s crippling tax bill.

The film is structured rather like those 1960s Italian portmanteau comedy-dramas, such as ‘Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow’, ‘The Witches’ or ‘Woman Times Seven’. Such films were intended as vehicles for one female star, be they Sophia, Silvana or Shirley, to demonstrate their versatility in a variety of roles. But instead of separate stories, with different characters, ‘Arabella’ has one continuous story arc, with Lisi’s sexy heroine adopting various costumes, personas and wigs to seduce and blackmail her way through a string of lovers, who are then »

Friday’s best TV: Travel Man – 48 Hours in Seville; Britain’s Whales; Springwatch

Richard Ayoade and Rob Delaney rampage round the ‘frying pan of Europe’; Ben Fogle and Ellie Harrison meet some bus-sized marine mammals; welcome the new season at Stockpole, Pembrokshire. Plus: a superb Janis Joplin documentary

Return of the comedy travel series with Richard Ayoade. “This is travel without mercy,” he grins as he launches himself into 48 hours in Seville – “the frying pan of Europe” – along with tall American standup Rob Delaney. They compare hotel rooms, go jogging, admire architecture and re-enact A Fistful of Dollars. Like Top Gear or The Trip, it’s a format that lives or dies on the strength of its participants’ personal chemistry and banter, so Delaney is an excellent way to start. Julia Raeside

Icons of Fright Talks Westerns and More With Kill Or Be Killed Directors Justin Meeks & Duane Graves

16 March 2016 3:15 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The western subgenre has seen somewhat of a resurgence lately, with films like Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful 8 and S. Craig Zahler’s shocking Bone Tomahawk. Hitting the market (available on DVD now) and adding to that resurgence, is directors Justin Meeks and Duane Graves’ excellent entry, Kill Or Be Killed.  Revolving around a group of outlaws trying to find a big score all while being picked off one by one, the film is bloody and full of entertainment, from start to finish.

We had a chat with Meeks and Graves about the film, its entry into the western genre and much more, so read on!

 

The Western subgenre is having such a great resurgence of sorts lately, with really good entries like Bone Tomahawk, Diablo, The Hateful 8 and so non. What inspired you to make Kill Or Be Killed? It’s very unique.

Meeks: Well, we wrote and filmed »

A Look Inside Metrograph, New York City’s New Independent Theater

2 March 2016 1:14 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Let’s start with this obvious point: few cities need another repertory outlet less than New York City, which provides enough decent-to-outstanding options every week (or day) to fully occupy any caring customer. And so when a new theater, Metrograph, was announced this past August, the largely enthusiastic response — people taking note of a good location, a dedication to celluloid presentations and new independent releases, its strong selection of programmers, and other services (e.g. a restaurant and “cinema-dedicated bookshop”) — went hand-in-hand with some people’s skepticism, or at least a certain raising of the eyebrows. The question of necessity was premature, but such is the influx of available material that it should inevitably come up.

It’s safe to say their first selections silenced those skeptics. Metrograph’s slate is strong in a way that’s uncommon; one could say it’s exactly the sort that a cinephile with »

How Quentin Tarantino and Oscar Winner Ennio Morricone Came Together on 'The Hateful Eight' Score

29 February 2016 11:36 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Before working together on "The Hateful Eight," Quentin Tarantino and the venerable composer Ennio Morricone, renowned for working with Sergio Leone on such spaghetti westerns as "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "A Fistful of Dollars," had circled each other respectfully for years. After all, Tarantino had been using parts of Morricone's scores since "Kill Bill" and approached him to no effect on "Inglourious Basterds" and "Django Unchained." But instead of finding existing Morricone pieces he liked and fitting them into "The Hateful Eight," this time Tarantino flew to Italy to meet the maestro to see if he would be willing to write the director's first original score — and the Italian composer's first western score for 40 years, since the release of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

Italy Cheers Ennio Morricone’s Oscar Win for ‘The Hateful Eight’ Score

29 February 2016 12:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Italy on Monday cheered Ennio Morricone’s Oscar victory for composing the original score for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” which marks the first competitive Oscar won by the 87-year old maestro with more than 500 movie credits to this name.

“After an almost 60-year-long career, and five nominations which had left him empty-handed, Ennio Morricone finally brings an Oscar for best score home,” trumpeted daily La Republica on its website.

“Superb Maestro, finally!” tweeted Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi at dawn, Italian time. Also on Twitter Italo Culture Czar Dario Franceschini enthused that “an all-time movie giant has triumphed.”

Morricone, who received an honorary Oscar in 2007, had been nominated five previous times, for “Days of Heaven,” “The Mission,” “The Untouchables,” “Bugsy” and “Malena.”

Earlier this year he won a Golden Globe and a Bafta nod for the “Hateful Eight” score. He had previously won Golden Globes for “The Mission, »

Where You'd Heard Oscar Nominee Ennio Morricone's Music Before The Hateful Eight

24 February 2016 8:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, more like, where haven't you heard it? The 87-year-old Ennio Morricone, who this year is nominated for his sixth Academy Award, is far from just being Quentin Tarantino's favorite composer ever: He's one of the most influential composers in modern cinema and maybe 20th-century music as a whole. As of this writing, Morricone is credited as a composer on 527 works at IMDb.com. Morricone played trumpet in jazz bands in the 1950s and eventually became a studio arranger for RCA. He achieved international fame with compositions for Sergio Leone's 1960s string of so-called "Spaghetti Westerns," including the Clint Eastwood vehicle The Good, »
