L.A. Film Critics to Honor Editor Anne V. Coates

10 October 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Academy Award-winning film editor Anne V. Coates will receive the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn.’s award for career achievement, the group announced on Saturday. She is the second editor to receive a lifetime honor from the L.A. critics, after the late Dede Allen in 1999.

The British-born Coates, 89, began her career splicing together religious short films for church tours — a job that she received with the help of her uncle, the film producer and entrepreneur J. Arthur Rank, who hoped that she would lose interest in the industry. Instead, she eventually became an assistant film editor at London’s Pinewood Studios.

Coates received her first editing credit on Noel Langley’s “The Pickwick Papers” (1952), a full decade before she would win the Oscar for cutting David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962). In addition to its impressive balance of imposing desert landscapes and vivid human drama (culled from some 31 miles »

Tomorrowland – The Review

22 May 2015 5:14 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Dana Jung

Of all the “lands” at Disneyland/Disney World (the others are Frontierland, Adventureland, and Fantasyland in case you’ve forgotten), Tomorrowland holds the most promise to an impressionable youth. With visions of Buck Rogers rayguns and Jetsons flying machines, the park promises more than it delivers, with its slow “people-movers” and static displays of smart homes and fashions of the future. Except for Space Mountain—a truly incredible roller coaster ride—this park is at once the most visually stimulating, and the most unexciting. The new film Tomorrowland shares some of these qualities, but is the end result a wild coaster ride of a popcorn movie, or a rehash of stale ideas about a utopian future?

Britt Robertson (Under The Dome, The Longest Ride) plays Casey, a smart and capable teenager living in a single-parent household consisting of her caring father (Tim McGraw) and not-so-annoying little brother (Pierce Gagnon, »

R.I.P. Rod Taylor

9 January 2015 5:04 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sydney-born Australian actor Rod Taylor, best known as the star of George Pal's original film adaptation of "The Time Machine" and Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds," died Wednesday of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 84.

Taylor made his feature debut in 'Time,' the 1960 screen version of H.G. Wells' classic. He followed that up voicing the lead dog in Disney's "101 Dalmatians" and delivered a strong performance in "The Birds".

Yet his career never really soared as high after those early successes, even though he kept working in various films such as "Sunday in New York ," "36 Hours," "Young Cassidy," "The Liquidator," "The Glass Bottom Boat," "Hotel," "Dark of the Sun," "Nobody Runs Forever," "Darker Than Amber," "The Train Robbers," "Bearcats!," "The Oregon Trail," "Masquerade," "Outlaws," "Falcon Crest," and "Welcome to Woop Woop".

His last role was that of Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds".

Rod Taylor, ‘The Birds’ and ‘The Time Machine’ Star, Dies at 84

8 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rod Taylor, the Australian-born actor who starred in George Pal’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine” and in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” then decades later made a memorable swan-song appearance as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” died Wednesday of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 84.

His daughter Felicia, a former CNN correspondent, confirmed the news Thursday.

Taylor made his feature starring debut in 1960 sci-fier “The Time Machine,” portraying a fictionalized Wells, who invents a time machine in Victorian England and travels to the distant future. He also starred in a brief ABC adventure series, “Hong Kong.”

The next year he voiced the lead canine, Pongo, in Disney’s “101 Dalmatians.” Even after an impressive performance in Hitchcock’s well-received 1963 “The Birds” (in photo above), the actor never quite made it into the first rank of Hollywood actors.
