Learning From The Masters Of Cinema: Lindsay Anderson's If....

7 July 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Before becoming a cinematic icon as Alex DeLarge in Stanley Kubrick's blistering adaptation of A Clockwork Orange, a cocky Yorkshire lad by the name of Malcolm McDowell made his screen debut as the equally rebellious Mick Travis in Lindsay Anderson's seminal If.....A savage attack on outdated tradition and authoritarian regimes, If.... takes place in an archaic English public school, where the growing insubordination of a small group of rebellious students, led by Travis, ultimately explodes in a violent assault on the institution and its pompous leadership. That is not to say that the film in any way condones violence in schools, or should be reprimanded for depicting such scenes of celebratory mayhem. Anderson's film speaks to a larger notion of rebellion and anti-establishment sentiment that...

Dressed to Serve: Costume in The Grand Budapest Hotel

3 July 2014 10:06 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Spoilers

From a costume point of view, and therefore a character point of view, The Grand Budapest Hotel (directed by Wes Anderson) is all about uniforms; those worn by men and women in official capacities and those adopted as a life uniform by those trapped in the past. Eccentric La Belle Époque hangover Madame D (Tilda Swinton) is the latter, Moustafa Zero (Tony Revolori), a newly appointed lobby boy in the pinnacle of majestic 1930s hotels, The Grand Budapest, is the former. While Madame D goes nowhere, perhaps because she has already been everywhere, Zero undertakes a journey and evolution of character, which subsequently means his clothing does too. In the grand scheme of Zero’s life it is not a significant costume evolution, but one that bears a mark so significant he chooses never to remove it.

The term lobby boy is not one you will hear much of these days. »

Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance

1 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation?  Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »

In praise of Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson's Bottom

1 July 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grimy, bleak, extremely violent and stupidly funny, Wil salutes the genius of Ade Edmondson and Rik Mayall's sitcom, Bottom...

Feature

The recent passing of Rik Mayall led to legions of fans hitting up Netflix and Youtube to relive the late comedian’s greatest moments. And while the ground-breaking 80s alternative comedy opus The Young Ones and his turn as Lord Flashheart in Blackadder seemed to be the most quoted on social media, it felt like Bottom, the grisly, profane flatshare comedy Mayall and long time collaborator Ade Edmondson made in the early 90s, was left out of the conversation. Which is a shame, because it might just be their masterpiece.

It’s kind of easy to see how Bottom got forgotten. The Young Ones was capital-i Important, not only in terms of breaking alternative comedy into the mainstream, but also as being as much a time capsule of the »

Snowpiercer: Come On, Baby, Do the Loco-Motion!

29 June 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Virtuoso devisers of works of science fiction envision a reality that is both fantastical and palpable. They mold metaphoric manifestations of the coming times that are inevitable considering the current carryings-on of their fellow man.

Nowadays, none of these visions are utopian. Dystopian nightmares are plaguing our literary works and cinemas, reflecting the inoperativeness besetting our governmental institutions, the greed swathing our unassailable international corporations, and the zealous indifference of our neighbors.

But has it ever been any different? Metropolis (1926), The Time Machine (1960), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Soylent Green (1973), Blade Runner (1982) and Dark City (1998) all were forerunners of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and even the Transformer series.

Now the Korean auteur Bong Joon Ho, who's never perused humanity through rose-colored glasses (e.g. The Host (2006); Mother (2009)), has adapted the French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige, and the result is gleefully entertaining and conceptually refreshing.

The Walking Dead, Hannibal, and Gravity Win Big at the 2014 Saturn Awards; Exclusive Stills and News from the Red Carpet

29 June 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The 40th Annual Saturn Awards were held this past Thursday, June 26th, and a what great show it was from (as Johnny Carson used to say) "beautiful downtown Burbank"! Here's the full list of winners and more.

Actually, we were high above the city at the famous Castaway restaurant and banquet hall. The Saturn Awards has been held here for the past few years, and it really is a fabulous venue with the best views of the San Fernando Valley anywhere.

Among the winners are Dread Central favorites "The Walking Dead," "Hannibal," The Conjuring, and Vera Farmiga's no holds barred performance as Norma Bates in "Bates Motel." The eye candy and updates from the carpet come from director Neil Marshall; the Curse of Chucky crew - Don Mancini, Brad Dourif, and Fiona Dourif; Insidious 3's Lin Shaye; and more. There's even some Ghostbusters 3 non-news!

It was a star-studded event, »

8-Bit Kill Bill Game Will Gouge Your Eyes Out!

27 June 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It’s 3Am and you are torn. Should you watch both volumes of Kill Bill or breathe new life into your geriatric Nes and fire up Bad Dudes? This is the question that drove Buddah insane. But fret not for CineFix has saved your sanity in the form of 8-Bit Cinema’s Kill Bill (Vols. 1 and 2).

8-Bit Cinema re-imagines film classics like A Clockwork Orange and the latest offering, Kill Bill, into short films with 8-bit video game graphics, giving them the feel that they are being played on the Nintendo Entertainment System or the coin munchers in the smoke-filled arcades of the 1980’s, teaming with teenage game junkies and low-rent drug dealers.

Just talking about it makes me feel 12 all over again.

The video plays like an arcade side scroller, following the Bride through the major battles of the franchise’s two films. Swords fly and eyes fly even »

Saturn Awards: A Genre Reunion and More Gold for ‘Gravity’

27 June 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“It’s like Comic-Con meets a Bar-Mitzvah” said host Jeff Ross as the Saturn Awards began Thursday night. He might be onto something. Surely there were plenty of genre faves at the Castaway in Burbank to excite the fanboys and auotgraph seekers outside, whose plaintive cries of “Ernie!” went mostly unheeded by Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson.

Among the actors at the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films’ annual bash: Malcolm McDowell; Chloe Grace Moretz (winner in the Performance by a Younger Actor in a film category for “Carrie”); Lance Henriksen; helmer Robert Rodriguez, a slew of “Walking Dead” thesps including Michael Rooker, Melissa McBride and Chandler Riggs; and Brad Dourif — not quite Hall H at Comic-Con, but enough to launch a thousand selfies. The actors’ reunions, as old friendships were rekindled, took care of the Bar Mitzvah piece.

‘Tammy’s’ Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone Build a Comedy Empire One Raunchy Joke at a Time

24 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Melissa McCarthy has emerged as one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars. But her offscreen lifestyle suggests otherwise.

She still resides in a small three-bedroom house in Los Angeles suburb Toluca Lake with her husband, Ben Falcone.

Their two young daughters share a room, and her Mac computer is packed in the closet.

“We’re in the tiniest bedroom on Earth,” McCarthy confesses. On the morning of the 2012 Oscars, when she was getting dolled up for her big evening as a supporting actress nominee for her breakout role as the loudmouth sidekick in “Bridesmaids,” she didn’t have any space in the house to get dressed. “I had my stylist come to my garage,” McCarthy says. “My friends are like, ‘Get it together!’”

(Danielle Levitt for Variety)

McCarthy recounts this story on a recent evening in Budapest over a long dinner of veggie burgers, cucumber salad and beer. Her husband of nine years, »

Sadcore Babylon – The Reel World Of Lana Del Rey

21 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If ever there was a movie presence who isn’t a movie star, it’s Lana Del Rey. She has a combination of glamour and lush musical arrangements that have been steadily attracting interest in Hollywood. Most recently she recorded Once Upon A Dream for Maleficent, itself a cover from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. She has worked with director Baz Luhrmann and received plaudits from David Lynch. For me Del Rey is a character actress in song, with her impressive vocal range and the way she creates a persona on each track. Her style has been described as “Hollywood Sadcore”, loosely defined as downbeat alternative rock, though there’s a lot more to her than that. Her latest album Ultraviolence (the name referencing A Clockwork Orange) has just been released, so now is a good time to take a closer look at three of her more filmic projects. Each demonstrate »

Cars and Films Artwork Highlights Vehicles of 'Goldfinger' & More

5 June 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Throughout the history of cinema, there have been a fair share of iconic cars that have come to life on the big screen, sometimes literally. Now an graphic, web designer and illustrator named Jesús Prudencio has decided to pay tribute to the automobiles from film in the form of a series aptly called Cars and Films. It's a simple collection of of illustrations of cars from expected films like Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and Blues Brothers, and less celebrated vehicles from films like Rain Man, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Clockwork Orange and more. They even include detailed specs on each car. Here are just some of Jesús Prudencio's Cars and Films prints (check out more right here): Prudencio explains his desire to create this series by simply saying, "I love films and cars!"

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 10-1

25 May 2014 9:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The end is here – if someone asked you what the most important movie musical of all time was, it would come from this portion of the list. Obviously, it’s all subjective, but it’s difficult to make a case against the influence of these films on our culture and the industry as a whole. So, cue the orchestra and practice your dance moves, because the closing number is here.

10. Saturday Night Fever (1977)

Directed by John Badham

Signature Song: “Stayin’ Alive” (http://youtu.be/Fa9n7GirhsI)

After making a name for himself with TV’s “Welcome Back Kotter,” John Travolta became a star with 1977′s cultural landmark Saturday Night Fever, a dance musical where Travolta plays Tony Manero, a young man who works a dead-end job, but spends his weekends as the king of the dance floor at a Brooklyn disco.

Read Stanley Kubrick's Beautiful Answer to Why Life Is Worth Living

15 May 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Considering movies like Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut, Dr. Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange don't exactly have the most cheerful depictions of mankind, it'd be easy to think Stanley Kubrick was a deeply pessimistic person. That's not necessarily true, as evidenced in this wonderful comic depiction of a quote from Kubrick about the meaning of life, and it's a beautiful sentiment. The quote comes from a 1968 interview Kubrick did with Playboy magazine. The interviewer had asked about his notorious fear of flying, which initially elicited the kind of dire, existential crisis answer you'd expect from the curmudgeonly Kubrick only to give way to this wonderfully inspiring explanation of why being aware of the meaninglessness of life is actually one of...

The Top 50 underappreciated Xbox games

8 May 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Microsoft's debut games console, the Xbox, made a big impact on gaming, but not all of its games got the attention they deserved...

Feature

The new generation console war may turning towads a two horse race, with Nintendo  playing catch up, but wind back a few years, and Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo were all hard at it, competing for your money and loyalty. The PlayStation 2 would go on to win the war of its generation, but Microsoft's Xbox was a tough competitor, giving the company a secure foothold, which it would later take advantage of in the next generation with the Xbox 360's dominance.

The original Xbox had a host of great games, many of which have gone on to become successful franchises, with no better example than Halo, but not all of its good games gained the attention they deserved, even if sequels managed to appear in later years. »

Stanley Kubrick’s Producer Jan Harlan on His Life in Film

6 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

If, like me, you’re a hardcore film geek who ranks Stanley Kubrick as your favorite director of all time, then Jan Harlan needs no introduction. At least that’s what I thought when I met Kubrick’s longtime producer (beginning with A Clockwork Orange — or rather the never-made Napoleon – right through to Eyes Wide Shut) this year at the Bermuda International Film Festival, where I’m on the international advisory board. Harlan was also Kubrick’s brother-in-law: his older sister Christiane was the director’s wife. It was a simple twist of fate that I found myself filling in as a last-minute replacement […] »
