BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

Comic-Con 2015: Fear The Walking Dead Interviews with Greg Nicotero and Dave Erickson

19 July 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Closing out our coverage from Comic-Con, I have highlights from my interview session for Fear The Walking Dead. We're nearly a month away until the new series premieres and showrunner Dave Erickson clarifies how the timeline of the show fits into The Walking Dead, while Greg Nicotero confirms an expanded episode order for Season 2:

Makeup effects master and Executive Producer Greg Nicotero talks about growing up on zombie movies:

"When I grew up it was Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. I loved zombie movies and I went to the theater, and I saw every single one of them. I snuck in and saw them. With The Walking Dead, we have 75 hours to tell a story. Now with Fear The Walking Dead, we have our first season of six hours, and you get to learn about these characters and you get to get into them. »

Comic-Con 2015: Dr. Travis Langley Talks The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych Of The Living Dead

17 July 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 2012, Dr. Travis Langley took us inside the minds of Gotham's protectors and tormentors in Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight. Now, along with a team of expert contributors, Dr. Langley examines the mental effects of the zombie apocalypse in The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead. At Comic-Con, Daily Dead caught up with Dr. Langley, who discussed further exploring the survivors of Robert Kirkman's living dead world, his upcoming book Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind, and much more.

Dr. Langley on his longtime love of The Walking Dead:

Dr. Travis Langley: I've always been a fan of The Walking Dead from the very first issue. You can go back and find issues—I think it's #11, #13 and #17—and go to the letter column, you'll find letters by me where I was analyzing the stuff back then. I've always been analyzing it. »

What does George A. Romero think of all those other zombie movies?

15 July 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's get one thing straight: George A. Romero isn't particularly thrilled with the zombie renaissance in general. "I don't get it," he responded when asked during a Q&A at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. "I honestly don't. First of all, I'm a little pissed off because I used to be the only guy and now everybody's in my playground." Often called the "godfather (sometimes grandfather) of the zombies," the director ushered in not only the modern zombie film but the modern horror film with his 1968 classic "Night of the Living Dead," which he followed up with five sequels (and counting?). So what does he think of all the movies (and TV show[s]) he influenced with his low-budget B&W masterpiece? With Romero's recent lambasting of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and the Brad Pitt vehicle "World War Z" making making the rounds, we thought it was time to collect his opinions »

Comic-Con 2015: Q&A with Ultimate Night Of The Living Dead’s Bill Jemas

9 July 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In September, Double Take will unleash ten premiere issues of ten separate series within their Ultimate Night of the Living Dead comic book universe. To give readers an idea of what to expect upon re-entering the world of George A. Romero's classic film, we caught up with Double Take's Bill Jemas, who discussed expanding Romero's world, familiar faces that may pop up, and much more.

What inspired Double Take to further explore the world of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead with ten new comic book series?

Bill Jemas: The original 1968 film is in the public domain and rife with possibilities for exploration. The scene is set, the characters well-developed and the opportunity was just too good. We tried several other universes and when we landed here, finally, all the artists' work started coming together. There is something about the film that people get behind. »

Romero - master of the macabre by Richard Mowe

George A Romero in Karlovy Vary: 'I am afraid of people and what they do to each other' Photo: Film Servis Festival Karlovy Vary Night Of The Living Dead director George A Romero says his nightmares lurk in reality rather than anything supernatural. He’s one of many special guests appearing at this year’s 50th anniversary edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Romero, 75, who gave a master class and, introduced a packed screening of his own film The Crazies as well as a screening of the newly restored version of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s The Tales Of Hoffmann, said: “I’m afraid of people. I’m afraid of what people do to each other. Can you imagine the concept of genocide? How can somebody do that to somebody else? There must be at least two kinds of people.

Zombie Master George Romero on "Hollywood Mafia," Cable TV's Appeal

6 July 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Zombie master George Romero is bringing his Empire of the Dead graphic novels for Marvel to TV. And true to form for an indie film pioneer never part of the Hollywood studio system, he'd prefer that the comic book series' small-screen adaptation land on cable, not network TV. "You can be a little tougher on cable. You don't have to be as gentle," the Night of the Living Dead director tells The Hollywood Reporter while attending the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. The turn to TV is a result of Romero proving unable to secure financing for his typically small,

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Jurassic Park, The Room, Zardoz

4 July 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You’Re Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!”

Another great lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ for late July through early September. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd and a couple of retro surprises are to be found. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. When I was that age, in the early ’80s, midnight standards included A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Graduate (1967), Night Of The Living Dead (1968), King Of Hearts (1966), and Harold And Maude (1971). Those last two haven’t shown in many years. King Of Hearts especially seems to have fallen off the cult movie radar , so imagine my surprise when I saw that the Tivoli had Harold And Maude as part of their new line-up. That’ll be some old school midnight fun »

Cinema's Hidden Pearls -- Part I

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls – Part I

By Alex Simon

One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable. Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.

Here are a few of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:

1. Night Moves (1975)

Director Arthur Penn hit three home runs in a row with the trifecta of Bonnie & Clyde, Alice’s Restaurant and Little Big Man, »

Burying The Ex: Alan Trezza on His Zombie Rom-Com and the Magic of Joe Dante

23 June 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now available on VOD and in select theaters is Joe Dante's (Gremlins, The 'Burbs) zombie comedy Burying the Ex. From a script by Alan Trezza, the film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy eager to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) when fate intervenes and she gets hit by a bus. Weeks later he meets his dream girl Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, who is making a career out of playing dream girls), but everything goes to hell when Evelyn rises from the grave convinced she and Max are still an item. After visiting the set last year (you can check out my on-set interviews with Greene here and Yelchin here), I recently had an opportunity to speak with Trezza about the film. He talked about going from a self-produced short film to landing Joe Dante as the director, what makes Dante so special, finding the right leads, »
