Winter is Blogging 6.3: Oathbreaker [Contains Spoilers]

9 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writers: David Benioff, D. B. Weiss.

Directors: Daniel Sackheim.

Cast: Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, et al.

Synopsis: Daenerys meets her future; Bran meets the past. Tommen confronts the High Sparrow. Arya trains to be No One. Varys finds an answer, and Ramsay gets a gift.

We start where we left off, which is gazing upon the naked body of Jon Snow after he is newly resurrected by Melisandre. And yes, there are more important things in this very moment than the public outcry to see his pecker, so if that’s what you’re tuning in for – it’s time to hang up your hat and call it a day. Regardless, our beloved Jon, though clearly – and understandably – flabbergasted as he rises to his feet, and bereft with grief and disappointment as he realises his actions spurred his assassination, takes Ser Davos’ coat. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Fassbinder Favorites, Buñuel, Queer Cinema, King Hu & More

22 April 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

A Real-Life Version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory Will (Kind Of) Exist Soon

18 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

For readers of a certain age, Roald Dahl's books played a wonderful role in their childhood. He captured the anxiety and beauty of children in stories as varied as James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, Matilda and The Bfg. Dahl turned to the movie world in the late 1960s, writing the scripts for the James Bond spy thriller You Only Live Twice and the children's fantasy Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but his experience in adapting his own book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was not very satisfying. The wildly popular book, first published in 1964, was inspired by Dahl's own brief time as a chocolate taster, and went on to sell more than 13 million copies worldwide. After penning the first draft of the screenplay, David Seltzer (The Omen) came on...

Sir Ken Adam, Oscar-winning Production Designer, Dead At Age 95

11 March 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of Sir Ken Adam, the ingenious, Oscar-winning production designer who has passed away at age 95. Adam's work helped redefine films in terms of the elaborate and creative designs he invented, particularly for the James Bond franchise. Adam's work on the first 007 film, "Dr. No" in 1962 was deemed to be nothing less than remarkable, considering that the entire film was shot on a relatively low budget of just over $1 million. His exotic designs so impressed Stanley Kubrick that he hired Adam as production designer on his 1964 classic "Dr. Strangelove." For that film, Adam created the now legendary "War Room" set which many people believe actually exists at the Pentagon. In fact when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President in 1981 he asked to see the War Room, only to be told that it was a fictional creation. Reagan acknowledged that he had been intrigued »

James Bond, 'Dr. Strangelove' designer Sir Ken Adam dies aged 95

11 March 2016 3:14 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two-time Oscar winner Adam was the first production designer to receive a knighthood.

Sir Ken Adam, the two-time Oscar winning production designer known for his work on James Bond films of the 1960s and 70s, died Thursday [10 March] at his home in London.

In addition to his work on Bond films including Goldfinger, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, Adam was highly regarded for his iconic production design in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove. Director Steven Spielberg described the film’s ‘War Room’ as the best film set ever built.

He was also known for designing the original car for 1968 musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang [pictured below].

Adam won his first Oscar in 1976 for his work on Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, and his second in 1995 for Nicholas Hytner’s The Madness Of King George. He received three additional nominations for Around The World In 80 Days, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Addams Family Values.

Ken Adam, Designer of James Bond Supervillain Lairs, Dies at 95

10 March 2016 1:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Five-time Oscar nominee and two-time winner Ken Adam, a production designer best known for his work on the James Bond films of the 1960s and 1970s and on “Dr. Strangelove,” died Thursday in London, according to the BBC. He was 95.

Adam created the sprawling, futuristic lairs of the supervillains who populated the Bond films starting with Dr. No’s secret island complex in the first 007 film in 1962. He worked on all the Bond films that starred Sean Connery through 1972’s “Diamonds Are Forever,” as well as on “The Spy Who Loved Me” (for which he received an Oscar nomination) and “Moonraker,” both starring Roger Moore.

For Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove,” he designed the famous war room. He was offered the production designer gig on Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” but turned it down.

Adam worked on other thrillers, including “The Ipcress File” and sequel “Funeral in Berlin,” but »

Bond, Kubrick Designer Ken Adam Has Died

10 March 2016 1:26 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Oscar winning production designer Ken Adam died today in London at the age of 95 according to The BBC.

Adam is most famous for creating the iconic and sprawling lairs of the supervillains who populated the Sean Connery and Roger Moore-era James Bond films. His designs included the Crab Key complex in "Dr. No," the Fort Knox interiors on "Goldfinger," the volcano lair of "You Only Live Twice," Stromberg's supertanker and Atlantis sets in "The Spy Who Loved Me," and Drax's space station in "Moonraker". He also did the production design on "Thunderball" and "Diamonds Are Forever".

Adams' work extended well beyond the Bond franchise though, such as two films in the anti-Bond Harry Palmer film series with Michael Caine - "The Ipcress File" and "Funeral in Berlin". He was a favorite of Stanley Kubrick following his design of the famous war room for "Dr. Strangelove". He was offered "2001" but turned it down, »

iTunes Hidden Gems #1

29 January 2016 5:50 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Like a lot of folks, my movie watching is heading more towards a digital future rather than a physical one – and that’s despite my love of Blu-ray and all the cult movies the format has brought us thanks to the likes of Olive Films, Kino Lorber/Scorpion Releasing, Scream Factory, Vinegar Syndrome et al.

Whilst many will decry abandoning discs for digital files there are some bonuses, especially for genre fans here in the UK. The advent of iTunes has brought with it, in a lot of cases, a dropping of the borders. Movies are hitting Apple’s stores that haven’t seen the light of day since the VHS era – there’s even some films available digitally that have never previously been made available to rent or buy on these shores. Ever.

With that in mind, I’ve been trawling iTunes to find some hidden gems, the real »
