All That Jazz Criterion Blu-ray Review

14 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

All That Jazz is a masterpiece.  The film transcends genre, as it’s a perfect blend of musical, dark comedy, biopic and fantasy.  It’s a self-portrait, really, of co-writer and director Bob Fosse, and it’s made all the more impressive by the fact that it marked the second to last feature film from the man who had already helmed films like Cabaret, Sweet Charity, and Damn Yankees—talk about going out with a bang.  It’s a seminal piece of cinema that is both wildly entertaining and introspective, ruminating on life and death in unique fashion, and the film has now been given the grand Criterion Collection treatment.  It’s an absolute must-own for any serious film fan.  Read my full All That Jazz Criterion Blu-ray review after the jump.  The Film  All That Jazz is largely based on the life of Fosse himself, drawing inspiration from the »

With announcements for 'Executioner' and Remo Williams, Hollywood seems crazy for pulp

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many of you have ever read an actual original era pulp story? Anything involving Doc Savage or The Shadow or John Carter or Doctor Death or The Phantom Detective or Tarzan or Solomon Kane or Conan or The Continental Op? If you haven't, that puts you in what I am sure is a vast majority at this point. I can't fault anyone for not being a reader of that sort of source material. It's not something that is part of the active mainstream right now, but if Hollywood gets its way, that may be about to change. There are some huge names in the world of pulp. By far, the biggest budget pulp title currently pending release is the David Yates "Tarzan" that Warner Bros. is putting out in 2016. When I interviewed Samuel L. Jackson at Comic-Con this summer, he repeatedly told me how excited he was by what »

Emma Stone to Replace Michelle Williams in Broadway's Cabaret

20 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Sally Bowles dreams of being a big film star, and come this fall, two big film stars will have played her on Broadway! Emma Stone is stepping into Ms. Bowles’ tap shoes, following Michelle Williams’ applauded performance in the Broadway revival of the Tony Award-winning musical Cabaret.  The role in the latest production, which debuted in October 2013, will become Stone’s on Nov. 11, USA Today reports. Liza Minnelli famously played Sally Bowles in the 1972 film adaptation, which won her an Oscar.  Broadway newcomer Stone, 25, joins [...] »

R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

Life To Be A ‘Cabaret’ For Emma Stone

12 August 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The part of Sally Bowles has long been associated with Hollywood actresses. Performers as diverse as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Natasha Richardson and most recently Michelle Williams have donned the distinctive bowler hat and stockings for an image that was made an icon of cinema by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 film of Cabaret. Now after much speculation The Amazing Spider-man star Emma Stone is in the closing stages of negotiation to take over the stage show from Williams in November.

Relaunched in April by the powerhouse theatrical combination of former Donmar Warehouse boss/Skyfall director Sam Mendes (who previously staged it with Jane Horrocks) and Rob Marshall (Chicago), the production also features Alan Cumming as the ghoulish Mc who presides over the action as the Nazis encroach into the Weimar Republic in the run up to the Second World War. The Kander and Ebb musical is based on the writings of »

Find Your Jesus, Find Your Kubrick: Lady Gaga as Auteur

25 July 2014 6:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For a while, Lady Gaga was one of the most fascinating music stars that had come in a while, primarily because of her unapologetic bombast. Too often, though, she may have been written off as “weird”, from her odd fashion decisions, her performance art appearances on TV, and, of course, her music videos. Gaga, née Stefani Germanotta, through her strange videos presents a vision, often of powerful women and the subversion of fame, through each of her music videos. Sometimes straddling the line between film and music video, Lady Gaga, though not always the director of these videos, is always the auteur behind them.

Lady Gaga’s early music videos are nothing if not promotional material, with “LoveGame” and “Poker Face” being, for the most part, entirely generic within the context of her career. It was not perhaps until she employed the use of music video director Jonas Åkerlund that »

The Forgotten Auteur: Bob Fosse

7 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Most people today would likely be shocked to think that in 1972, The Godfather went into the Oscars anything but a sure bet for Best Picture. Aside from Casablanca and Citizen Kane it is recognized as the greatest American film of all time and in hind sight most people forget that not only was it tied for nominations in 1972, but Coppola lost Best Director.

Because hindsight is anything but 20/20 when popular consensus takes over, the narrative of the Hollywood Renaissance is one of Scorsese, Spielberg and Lucas getting snubbed for Taxi Driver, Jaws, Close Encounters, and Star Wars. But looking at the 1970s and the race for Best Director, what you see instead is two directors fighting it out for director of the decade, each earning three nominations.

Obviously one of them is Francis Ford Coppola. With both Godfathers, The Conversation, and, Apocalypse Now most people would say that he won that fight. »

Win Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on Blu-ray

7 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on 7th July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

First they faked his death and gave him a new identity. Now a top secret organisation is training a former New York cop to combat corrupt forces operating outside of the law. His mentor, Chiun, is an ageing Korean master of the martial arts who can run on water and dodge speeding bullets.

Born on the pages of Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series of men’s adventure novels, Remo Williams was placed in the capable hands of Bond director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, The Man with the Golden Gun) for his big-screen outing. Fred Ward (Tremors) plays the trainee assassin, with Academy Award-winner Joel Grey (Cabaret) occupying the role of Chiun.

Shia Labeouf may have been dragged out of the Broadway performance of Cabaret on Thursday, June 26, but the troubled actor doesn’t have to worry about seeing what happens to young Sally Bowles.

Meme: Luke Evans Dons Leather Pants As Dracula, Matt McGorry Tweets #NoHomo From NYC Pride Float, Tim Cook Attends Sf Pride

The UK has a sperm shortage, Constantine can’t smoke on TV, catching up with the Queer As Folk cast

While most reports say that the cast of Orange Is the New Black owned NYC Pride on their float, the sexy Matt McGorry is under fire for tweeting about it with a #NoHomo hashtag, and caught the appropriate amount of crap for it. McGorry says that it was a joke and the fact that he’s on a Pride float should make that obvious. All may be forgiven as a fan tweeted at him that he should tweet nudes to make up for it, and McGorry responded “Fair is fair.”

There is a sperm shortage in the UK. I’m not claiming that UK men are less virile, but they aren’t sharing what they’ve got with sperm banks thanks to a law that allows the offspring to learn »

‘Jersey Boys’ Cast Talk Movie Musicals, Dream Casting Zac Efron

10 June 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Warner Bros. bigscreen adaptation of “Jersey Boys” hosted its New York premiere on Monday night just a few blocks north of the Broadway stage where the Tony-winning musical debuted in 2005. A pre-party at the Angelo Galasso House inside the Plaza Hotel included a crowd of theater groupies (Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin), stars (Alan Cumming and Reeve Carney) and other staples from the music world (Clive Davis).

Director Clint Eastwood, sporting a grizzly beard, introduced the film at the Paris Theatre, explaining he’d never seen the hit play about the Four Seasons until the project came to him. He then attended three different versions of the show. “I ended up here on Broadway seeing it,” Eastwood told the crowd. “You’ll see some of the original players. For the most part we tried to keep all the originals from different companies. It was a great privilege for me »

Life Is Just One Delicious...

29 May 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Cabaret has always been a groundbreaking musical, dating back to Harold Prince’s original production in 1966.  When Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s production opened at Studio 54 in 1998, it built upon what Prince started and pushed the limits even further, creating a much raunchier, seedier, darker, and more dangerous trip to the cabaret.  Mendes and Marshall have once again brought their Cabaret back to Studio 54, and it remains a brilliant production of a great musical, one that manages to be hugely entertaining, funny, charming, and moving, while at the same time threatening in its depiction of the growing storm created by the rise of the Nazis in Berlin in 1930.  Dominated once again by the exceptional performance of Alan Cumming as the Emcee, Cabaret is a welcomed addition to any Broadway season, and it was great to have the chance to revisit this bold production.

Cumming has lost none of his mischievous edge on stage. »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: All That Jazz

20 May 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 26, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

It's showtime for Roy Scheider in All That Jazz.

The preternaturally gifted director and choreographer Bob Fosse (Cabaret) turned the camera on his own life for the madly imaginative, self-excoriating 1979 musical drama All That Jazz.

Roy Scheider (Jaws, Sorcerer) gives the performance of his career as Joe Gideon, whose exhausting work schedule—mounting a Broadway production by day and editing his latest movie at night—and routine of amphetamines, booze, and sex are putting his health at serious risk. Fosse burrows into Gideon’s (and his own) mind, rendering his interior world as phantasmagoric spectacle.

Assembled with visionary editing that makes dance come alive on-screen as never before, and overflowing with sublime footwork by the likes of Ben Vereen (Mama, I Want to Sing), Leland Palmer, Sandahl Bergman (Conan the Barbarian) and the awesomely leggy Ann Reinking, All That Jazz »

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 20-11

18 May 2014 9:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The clear difficulty of identifying the definitive movie musicals is separating the musical itself from the film version. The Phantom of the Opera is, without a doubt, a top ten definitive stage musical. Movie musical? Not so much. Drawing a clear line between the two is what makes this list a little trickier. For this segment of the list, we have musicals that have no stage version, two Best Picture winners, a Palme d’Or winner, and a few musicals that may stretch the term a bit.

​'Gaslight': 7 Everlasting Legacies of the Ingrid Bergman Classic

9 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

1. The term "gaslight." The Ingrid Bergman thriller "Gaslight" -- released 70 years ago this week, on May 4, 1944, wasn't the original use of the title. There was Patrick Hamilton's 1938 play "Gas Light," retitled "Angel Street" when it came to Broadway a couple years later. And there was a British film version in 1939, starring Anton Walbrook (later the cruel impresario in "The Red Shoes") and Diana Wynyard.

Still, the glossy 1944 MGM version remains the best-known telling of the tale, with the title an apparent reference to the flickering Victorian lamps that are part of Gregory's (Charles Boyer) scheme to make wife Paula (Bergman) think she's seeing things that aren't there, thus deliberately undermining her sanity in order to have her institutionalized so that he'll be free to ransack the ancestral home to find the missing family jewels.

This version of Hamilton's tale was so popular that it made the word "gaslight"into a verb, »

Heath Ledger: The Top 25 (Best Supporting Actor)

Continuing on with this weekly series I’m doing for the site, we’re in the midst of talking the top 25 Oscar winners in just about every single one of the Academy Award categories. Aside from the shorts and something a bit harder to rank like Best Sound Editing or Mixing as I mentioned previously, I’ll be hitting them all over the coming weeks and months, including of course the big eight categories. Today I’ll be going ahead and knocking off another of those rather big ones, the ever interesting Best Supporting Actor category. As always, depending on the category in question, I may wind up discussing the individual winners I’m citing specifically or just give more of a broad overview of the winners, but I’m keeping it simple for this one and will focus on the list. Like I’ve said each week though, in all honesty, »
