The Definitive Original Screenplays: 20-11

12 March 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The top 20. The scripts by which all others are defined and to which all others are compared. Brilliant scripts can be wordy. Brilliant scripts can be confusing. Brilliant scripts can be sweeping or intimate. This section runs the gamut, ranging from first time writers to established writing vets. It only gets better from here.

20. Easy Rider (1969)

Written by Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, and Terry Southern

They’ll talk to ya and talk to ya and talk to ya about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ‘em.

This portion’s “anybody can write a film” segment comes from 1969, with a landmark film that truly doesn’t have much weight. A road movie if there ever was one, Easy Rider follows Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) as they ride their motorcycles across the country to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. »

Eternal Screencaps from the Blogging Mind

4 March 2014 8:07 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Guess what unforgettable movie about people wanting to forget is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary?

Have you ever thought about what your favorite shot from it is? Or which shot best represents the movie as a whole? Have you ever wondered how it can possibly be that the cinematographer Ellen Kuras has only done 4 narrative features in the ten years since?

You know where this is going right?!

Break out the bubbly because "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" returns on March 18th (We're moving it to Tuesdays at 9 Pm to give people the weekend to screen the movies and be ready!). If you're new to the blog or haven't yet experimented with actually participating, I guarantee a good time. Everyone who has participating religiously has said that they've gotten a ton out of it. Plus it proves the point 'the more the merrier' because the best episodes offer »

"You Like Me!" (this is not an Oscar post)

2 March 2014 2:19 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

3 Notes. Oh don't click away you have time to read them. And yes I'll be live tweeting and a little light blogging tonight

01. Like The Film Experience on Facebook. Follow Nathaniel on Twitter, Pinterest? Why am I so needy? It's like this: Once Oscar night wraps up I experience something like a free fall; help me pull that parachute string.

02. We're here all year -- it's not just an Oscar site so don't abandon us if you're exhausted by Oscar shenanigans. There's only one more week of it, recapping this year's Oscars, filmbitching, and we'll close out the annual festivities with that Supporting Actress Smackdown we promised (yes, the one I flubbed that you've been impatient for). After that one eye returns to brand new movies and pinch of tv and the other to occasional trips back to favored oldies in A Year With Kate, Seasons of Bette, and Hit Me. »

Baftas 2014: Gravity hits the heights but 12 Years a Slave takes best film

17 February 2014 2:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

3D space disaster movie wins six awards at Royal Opera House, including best director and best British film

It was a contest between two wildly different films – a 3D space disaster movie and an unflinching portrayal of 19th-century American slavery – and on paper it was the former, Gravity, which emerged as the biggest winner at the 2014 Bafta ceremony.

It won six awards, including best director and best British film. But 12 Years a Slave unquestionably picked up the biggest prize, best film, with Chiwetel Ejiofor named as best actor.

In a year when no one film swept the board, American Hustle also came away with three prizes.

Alfonso Cuarón was named best director and said you would not know it from his accent but he considered himself a part of the British film industry. He has lived in London for 13 years and joked: "I make a very good case for curbing immigration. »

Kevin Alejandro’s New Pilot Role, Fred Armisen Leads the New “Late Night” Band and the Improbable Popularity of “The Walking Dead”

If you haven’t heard about “Dumb Starbucks” it was a California “art gallery” that completely duplicated the look of a Starbucks, except it added “Dumb” to the Starbucks logo. It turns out the shop was a stunt by Comedy Central show Nathan for You, which parodies business improvement reality shows. I laughed when I saw it on the news, I can’t wait to see the episode.

Tom Cavanagh has joined the cast of the CW’s Flash pilot. He’ll play a physicist at S.T.A.R. labs named Harrison Wells. As far as I can find, there isn’t a DC Comics character with that name to hint as his future.

     Just a mention of Tom Cavanagh has me looking for that Breakfast with Scot DVD.

George Clooney on the Epic Battle to Make ‘Monuments Men’

4 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The walls of his rustic chic home, tucked away on a quiet wooded street in Studio City, are graced with framed black-and-white photographs of gorgeous leading men from a bygone era: Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gregory Peck and Paul Newman, among them. In his living room, next to all the regal portraits, there is a snapshot of him and then-Sen. Barack Obama side by side at a 2006 Washington, D.C., press conference concerning the genocide in Darfur. The walls of George Clooney’s abode — once owned by Gable himself — speak volumes about the man who is at once a charismatic star craving legendary fame and someone who thinks beyond the borders of insular Hollywood.

Meet Citizen Clooney.

The 52-year-old actor-director-producer is among a small group of celebrities, including power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Oprah, and Bono, who can shine a global camera on significant »

Earliest Best Actor Oscar Winner Has Died

1 February 2014 6:52 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Maximilian Schell dead at 83: Best Actor Oscar winner for ‘Judgment at Nuremberg’ (photo: Maximilian Schell ca. 1960) Actor and filmmaker Maximilian Schell, best known for his Oscar-winning performance as the defense attorney in Stanley Kramer’s 1961 political drama Judgment at Nuremberg died at a hospital in Innsbruck, Austria, on February 1, 2014. According to his agent, Patricia Baumbauer, Schell died overnight following a "sudden and serious illness." Maximilian Schell was 83. Born on December 8, 1930, in Vienna, Maximilian Schell was the younger brother of future actor Carl Schell and Maria Schell, who would become an international film star in the 1950s (The Last Bridge, Gervaise, The Hanging Tree). Immy Schell, who would be featured in several television and film productions from the mid-’50s to the early ’90s, was born in 1935. Following Nazi Germany’s annexation of Austria in 1938, Schell’s parents, Swiss playwright Hermann Ferdinand Schell and Austrian stage actress Margarete Schell Noé, »

Much Ballyhooed Johansson Sets Winter Soldier on Fire

31 January 2014 5:40 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ poster (image: Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in one of the character posters for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’) Scarlett Johansson has created quite a bit of a stir in recent days. Yesterday, January 30, 2014, Captain America: The Winter Soldier posters came out, revealing Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and a tightly garbed Scarlett Johansson as a seductive, hair flowing in the wind, Black Widow. And like every good film noir heroine worth her makeup, she’s deadly, too; forget the cleavage, the lips, and the hips, and focus on those two guns. And there’s more. Let’s not forget Scarlett Johansson looking sultry in a 2014 Super Bowl ad plugging SodaStream, which went viral and created quite a bit of controversy, both of the tabloid and the political varieties. First, tongues wagged (and some drooled) because, gee, didn’t Johansson spice up soda pop? »

Alfonso Cuaron Q&A: ‘Gravity’ Director Reveals Early Influences

28 January 2014 1:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Darwin, philosophy, ‘Lost in Space’: The DGA-winning filmmaker talks about early influences, many of which resurface in the emotional core of “Gravity” in a Q&A with Variety’s Tim Gray.

Growing up, did you watch much TV?

All day long, television and movies. I loved “Lost in Space,” “Gilligan’s Island,” “Mr. Ed” — remember “Mr. Ed”? — “Bewitched,” all those. And in Mexico at that time, these were blended with Japanese anime and monster shows.

Films?

My mom and grandmother were cinephiles. We loved to go to the movies. The first great film I was exposed to was “The Bicycle Thief.” I was probably 8. I was at a sleepover with my cousin, and they announced on TV that they were about to show a film only for adults. I thought I was going to see boobs or something. I didn’t see any boobs, but by the end, I was weeping. »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Robert Redford on the attraction of starring in a Marvel movie

27 January 2014 6:39 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This Spring screen legend Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All Is Lost) is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he's set to take on the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. chief Alexander Pierce in the solo sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Now, while we're sure there's more to his character than meets the eye (if I were a betting man, my money would be on The Red Skull), Redford has taken a moment to explain the attraction of starring in a Marvel movie during a chat with Entertainment Weekly at the Sundance Film Festival.

"One of the reasons that I did it was I wanted to experience this new form of filmmaking that’s taken over where you have kind of cartoon characters brought to life through high technology. The Avengers series is a product of high technology playing a major role in the new order »

15 Movie Moments That Made Your Testicles Wither

20 January 2014 1:05 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

Getting hit in the nuts is a timeless occurrence. It happens a lot in cartoons, and was a prevalent act among our buddies in middle-school and beyond. Still, watching a “nut shot” on celluloid is probably no longer the hilarious act we once thought it to be, and filmmakers must continually invent new and creative ways to allow us to experience that dropping feeling in our stomachs and loins.

As we’ve matured, of course, we have come to recognize that a shot to the manhood can be not only literal and physical but metaphorical and emotional as well. That being said, this list isn’t so much about moments in film that depict glorious crushings of our stick and stones – instead, it’s about those moments that really made us feel it in our loins, and possibly our hearts, too… who knew there was such a connection between the two, »

Robert Redford may leave Sundance film festival

17 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'It's no longer the place it was,' says Redford as the independent film festival he co-founded kicks off in Utah

• Full coverage: Sundance 2014

Robert Redford has hinted that he is ready to walk away from the Sundance film festival, the annual celebration of independent film-making he founded more than 35 years ago. "Sometimes you have to change the guard," he said, "and that includes me."

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter to mark the 2014 edition of the festival, Redford said he felt increasingly hostile towards the corporate and marketing forces that had inevitably permeated the festival in recent decades.

Redford, who no longer oversees selection of films for the event but remains president of the board and consults regularly with programmers, said: "How can I not be satisfied about a success? But those earlier years felt best.

"They're taking away some of the textures and qualities that were here »

Fleming On 2014 Sundance Forecast: Thriving Indie Biz Makes Appetite Strong; Un-Commercial Slate Could Limit Big Deals

16 January 2014 4:34 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Sundance Film Festival market gets underway tonight, and it could start with a bidding bang for Whiplash, seen here first as a short and now a feature starring Miles Teller as a drummer trying to survive his ruthless school band conductor (J.K. Simmons). Then again, buyers could find it’s not the second coming of Precious, Beasts Of The Southern Wild, or last year’s gem Fruitvale Station. It will still sell if that happens, it will just take longer, with its prospect for a meaningful theatrical release dimming with each passing day. More than any recent year in memory, this Sundance program might well have been programmed by Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid screenwriter William Goldman, because of how the fest follows his famous adage about Hollywood that “Nobody knows anything.” It’s harder than usual to predict this fest’s breakout films because nothing jumps off »

Oscars 2014 will celebrate heroes -- many of whom will likely be in the room

14 January 2014 2:07 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

For this year’s Oscars, it will be an ode to the honorable.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced Tuesday that this year’s Academy Awards will have a movie hero theme. Meron made the announcement through an Instagram video saying the night would be a celebration of all heroes: popular heroes, real-life heroes, animated heroes, and superheroes.

Does that mean we can expect host Ellen DeGeneres in a Wonder Woman suit? Probably not. However, many of the stars in contention for Oscars this year have already played heroic parts. Here is a look at some of the best »

TV audiences should wait longer for cinema releases: From the archive, 3 January 1976

2 January 2014 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A report lists new measures to revitalise ailing British film industry

Two days before Christmas, the report of the Prime Minister's working party on the ailing British film industry thumped on to his desk, and the cinema moguls will be agog to scan its findings when they published after Parliament resumes.

One recommendation they are unlikely to see in the report is the Writers' Guild idea that television should not be allowed to show films made for the cinema until they are at least 15 years old.

If that were currently the rule - instead of the five year wait which is normally imposed - 22 of the 47 movies shown by the BBC over the past holiday fortnight would have been kept off the screen, including Women In Love, Carry On Up The Khyber, and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid.

Which, some may feel, would have improved the quality of entertainment »
