Toronto Film Review: ‘Deepwater Horizon’

13 September 2016 8:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At the end of “Diamonds Are Forever,” audiences cheer when James Bond succeeds in blowing up the giant oil platform the evil Blofeld uses as his base. It’s a spectacular finale, to be sure, though nowhere near as impressive as the real-life destruction wrought in “Deepwater Horizon,” a stunning Hollywood restaging of the explosion that consumed the Transocean deepwater drilling rig on April 20, 2010. Needless to say, no one cheers this time around: We all know that 11 men lost their lives in the accident, and that the ensuing oil spill became the country’s all-time worst ecological disaster. And yet, despite the fact that director Peter Berg presents the action as if everyone in the audience is an engineer, the excitement is undeniable. For a movie in which you can’t follow what’s going on for 75% of the time, “Deepwater Horizon” proves remarkably thrilling — and could well become one »

Batman: Joe Dante turned movie down in 1980s

13 September 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Sep 14, 2016

The 1980s Batman movie you never saw could have had Joe Dante in the director's chair - and John Lithgow as The Joker...

Tom Mankiewicz's Batman sceenplay is one of the more interesting unmade superhero movies of all time. The man who gave Superman: The Movie's legendarily difficult early drafts the polish that helped make it the timeless classic that it is (and who also wrote, co-wrote, or re-wrote the screenplays for James Bond adventures like Live And Let Die, Diamonds Are Forever, and The Spy Who Loved Me) took a pass at Batman in the early 1980s, and one of the possibilities to direct it? That'd be Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins, Innerspace and more films that we love).

Dante passed on the movie, and it took several more years to actually get Batman to the big screen, by which point the project had »

Sometimes they come back: Heroes who refuse to quit

3 August 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

For a while it looked like Matt Damon had left the action-packed life of rogue operative par excellence Jason Bourne far behind. Jeremy Renner starred in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy and was set to continue in the visceral vein of his predecessor. However, fans got a surprise when Damon announced his return to Robert Ludlum‘s butt-kicking chronicle, bringing regular collaborator Paul Greengrass along for the ride.

The star’s reappearance in one of his defining roles is a bit out of left field, but certainly not unprecedented when it comes to celluloid heroes and heroines resurrecting themselves for that extra sack of box office loot. So as Damon comes back to Bourne, let’s check out some other notable names who decided the show wasn’t quite over yet…

The Best Bourne Yet

27 July 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

The series’ fifth installment explodes on the screen as Matt Damon returns to the role he originated way back in 2002.  The Bourne in this film is a bulked up, bare knuckle street brawler, earning money to support a humble off the grid existence. While never chatty and light, this Bourne incarnation is – if possible – even more grim and purposeful than before. (Supposedly Damon has only 25 lines of dialogue in the entire film!) His old CIA ally, Nicky Parsons (played by the wonderful Julia Stiles) tracks him down, offering freshly hacked information that will finally put the missing pieces in Bourne’s identity puzzle. When he learns that his own father was deeply involved then sacrificed, this chase becomes personal. Let’s just say you don’t want to get in Bourne’s way when it’s personal…

As important as Damon’s return to the franchise is, »

Moving In: The Coolest Houses Used In Films

10 June 2016 12:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Given the choice, we would pick one of these 4 houses from the movies. Say what you will about your historically rooted community or your tiny apartment in a buzzing city, sometimes you just have to go with the dream.

While some of these residences are technically fictional, their film adaptation has sold us on them. Now just hook us up with the realtor or rental agent – we’re moving in!

Headed “Under The Tuscan Sun

When the 2003 film “Under The Tuscan Sun” opens, the Italian villa at the center of the movie isn’t much to look at. A lot of dreaming and a team of Polish workers later, though, and you’re looking at a gorgeous vacation home, perfect for your soul-searching “Eat, Pray, Love” style getaway. In fact, you can even rent the real life property if you want »

Who should direct / star in the next Bond?

28 May 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In not surprising news, Sam Mendes is moving on from the 007 franchise after Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). Daniel Craig is probably moving on, too, but rumors about who will replace him are, as ever, premature. The names floating about this time are Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston (wishful fan thinking, maybe, since the internet has been suggesting these two names forever) and 30 year old Jamie Bell which is an interesting idea and probably not a bad one. If chosen he'd be the youngest Bond since Sean Connery (who was 30 when he was cast for Dr. No (1962) though most subsequent Bonds have been around 40 when they started. Plus Bell is super charismatic but underused in cinema.

Though Bond films are largely regarded as producer driven and leading actor focused pictures, rather than directorial feats, the man in the chair is important. In the past the franchise has generally relied on mid level directors rather than auteurs, »

Preacher Recap: Was the Series' Premiere Heavenly or Hellish?

22 May 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Loaded with eye-popping action sequences, cheeky humor and unexpected sweetness, the premiere of Preacher, based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, suggests that AMC’s supernatural dramedy just might turn out to be the best new show of the year. But we can debate that after you’ve worked your way through this recap and its reminders of how appealingly badass Dominic Cooper and Ruth Negga were as the titular preacher, Jesse Custer, and his combustible old flame, Tulip O’Hare.

Daniel Craig, it’s okay if you let Bond go

Tony Black on Daniel Craig’s future as Bond…

We all knew this was coming. By we, I mean the legion of James Bond fans and aficionados who have followed the bizarre media whirlwind that seems to forever cascade around 007 himself, Daniel Craig. The Daily Fail (sorry, Mail!) apparently claimed Craig is done – that soon after the release of Spectre he turned down (say it like Dr Evil) 100 million dollars to return not just for Bond 25 but also Bond 26, claiming to Eon Productions and MGM bosses that his tenure was over. Everyone clamoured over this scant piece of pure rumour, to the point almost of hysteria, until the BBC later waded in and claimed what we all suspected all along – that Craig hasn’t made his mind up yet, and likely won’t for quite some time. Why should he? Bond 25 is a long way off, given the »

Why Daniel Craig Should Play James Bond One More Time

11 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In 2006, Daniel Craig brought his version of James Bond to life for the first time with Casino Royale. Now, ten years later, Craig has turned in four performances as Bond. And though he reportedly has a film or two left on his contract, the future is very uncertain as to whether or not he will return for a fifth and presumably final turn as 007. In fact, many signs point to Spectre being the last film in the Daniel Craig Bond era, for better or for worse. But we think he should come back for at least one more adventure, and finish what he started.

During the press tour for Spectre last year, Craig made it very clear that he was less than interested in playing the character again. Speaking with Britain's Time Out, just after filming on Spectre wrapped, Craig had this to say in regards to whether or not »

When Prince Charles Met Prince: Relive Their 1999 Charity Gala Run-In

24 April 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

British and music royalty collided back in 1999, when late pop star Prince met Prince Charles. Walking the red carpet with then-wife Mayte Garcia, Prince met the Prince of Wales at the De Beers and Versace "Diamonds Are Forever" charity fashion event on June 9, 1999. The star-studded shindig helped raise money for several organizations, including Charles' Prince's Foundation, which benefits architecture and the environment. Prince, who had celebrated his 41st birthday just two days before the event, was wearing a black and gold turtleneck and greeted the tux-clad Charles, then 50, on the red carpet.

Guy Hamilton obituary

21 April 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Director best known for his Bond films, The Colditz Story and An Inspector Calls

With four James Bond movies – Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), Live and Let Die (1973) and The Man With the Golden Gun (1974) – among his credits, the director Guy Hamilton, who has died aged 93, was one of Britain’s most bankable film-makers. But his latter-day fame, for these and other commercial blockbusters, detracted in the eyes of many critics from his earlier achievements.

Hamilton’s long career began as an assistant director, a job that most usually led to work in production. He, however, was determined to direct and decided that “the trick was not to be an assistant director, but to become the director’s assistant”, thus gaining valuable experience by tackling those tasks that preoccupied bosses chose to delegate. During a six-year period he became recognised as the best in the business, working for Alberto Cavalcanti, Sidney Gilliat, »

James Bond director Guy Hamilton dies, aged 93

21 April 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Guy Hamilton, who transformed James Bond, dies at the age of 93.

Guy Hamilton, best known for the his work on the James Bond movies, Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun, has died at the Hospital Juaneda Miramar in the city of Palma de Mallorca on the Spanish island of Mallorca. He was 93.

Hamilton raised the profile of the James Bond movies through his work with original film 007 actor Sean Connery and Roger Moore, who played the spy starting with Live and Let Die and in 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun, which Hamilton directed.

"Incredibly, incredibly saddened to hear the wonderful director Guy Hamilton has gone to the great cutting room in the sky. 2016 is horrid," Moore wrote on Twitter.

Hamilton worked with Michael Caine on Battle of Britain and Harrison Ford on the 1978 adaptation of Force 10 from Navarone. »

R.I.P. Guy Hamilton

21 April 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

British filmmaker Guy Hamilton has died in Majorca at the age of 93. Hamilton set the template for the James Bond franchise when he helmed 1964's iconic "Goldfinger".

He returned to the franchise in the early 1970s for Sean Connery's final outing with "Diamonds are Forever," and then ushered in Roger Moore's start to the series with "Live and Let Die" and "The Man with the Golden Gun".

In a statement, Bond series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson say: "We mourn the loss of our dear friend Guy Hamilton who firmly distilled the Bond formula in his much celebrated direction of 'Goldfinger' and continued to entertain audiences with 'Diamonds Are Forever,' 'Live and Let Die' and 'The Man with the Golden Gun.' We celebrate his enormous contribution to the Bond films."

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of director Guy Hamilton, who has passed away at age 93. Guy was an old friend and supporter of our magazine and a wonderful talent and raconteur. Hamilton, though British by birth, spent much of his life in France. After WWII, he entered the film industry in England and served as assistant director to Sir Carol Reed, working on the classic film "The Third Man". He also served as Ad on John Huston's "The African Queen". Gradually, he moved up the ladder to director and helmed such films as "An Inspector Calls", "The Colditz Story" and "The Devil's Disciple", the latter starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. In 1964 Hamilton was hired to direct the third James Bond film "Goldfinger" and made cinema history. »

Remembering 007 Director Guy Hamilton by Revisiting ‘Goldfinger’

21 April 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I seriously doubt that “Goldfinger” was the first Bond movie I saw, but there’s no question it was the one that cemented my love for the franchise — the gold standard against which all subsequent installments would be judged. It’s a good thing I saw it when I was young, too, because in many ways, it’s the hokiest of the series, with self-parody already setting in by the third film — and the first directed by the late Guy Hamilton, who went on to helm three others (“Diamonds Are Forever,” “Live and Let Die” and “The Man with the Golden Gun”).

The film’s pre-credits episode features Bond scuba-diving in to plant a bomb. When he emerges from the water, he’s wearing a “camouflage” helmet featuring a stuffed seagull perched on top — the sort of gag one might expect in a Leslie Nielsen spy-movie send-up, not the real deal. »
