Drive-In Dust Offs: The Fly (1958)

7 October 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Charming” is not often a word associated with horror films; it’s counterintuitive to what the genre usually stands for—you know, terror and tension, followed by release and a sense of ease, then repeat—but yet here we are with a romantic tale about a boy, a girl, a teleportation device, and the insect that comes between them. Welcome to the world of The Fly (1958), where the hosts are welcoming, the police polite, and the monster bug-eyed.

Released by Twentieth Century Fox in July, The Fly pulled in $7 million against its $300,000 budget, enticing audiences with a tale often told at the time—sold as another Atomic Age Monster Mash, The Fly instead uses a much smaller (and human) canvas to convey a message of obsession and the love that ultimately ends it. Having said that, you also get a man with a fly head and some neat-o transportation sequences, »

London Film Convention: Cinema Retro's Mark Mawston Reports

20 September 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

"Thunderball" co-stars Martine Beswick and Luciana Paluzzi.

Hammer and "Live and Let Die" actress Madeleine Smith.

By Mark Mawston

The London Film Convention, organized by Thomas Bowington was quite literally a Who’s Who of heroes and villains from the small and silver screen. The actual Who came in the shape of a Dr. himself in the guise of Sylvester McCoy, along with Who assistants Katy Manning who played Jo and Bernard Cribbins from both the Amicus film version and the TV version. There was also a rare appearance from Garial Woolf. The other key cult British film genres-the Carry On films, James Bond and Hammer horror- were all represented too, with many of the star guests appearing in all three: from the Carry On Films we had Fenella Fielding, Anita Harris and Amanda Barrie, from Hammer and Bond we had Maddie Smith, Valerie Leon, Martine Beswick, Eunice Gayson, John Wyman, »

Krakatoa East of Java

2 September 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

‘Things Blowing Up Good’ has been surefire entertainment since the beginning of cinema, but this ill-fated Cinerama extravaganza about the biggest explosion in recorded human history limps along despite some pretty darned impressive volcanic effects. It’s quite an entertaining spectacle, with various good performers in three soap opera plots, either overacting or loitering about with nothing to do. And don’t forget the from-left-field musical striptease.

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the »

Bond boxset sued for not having enough Bond movies in it

6 August 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 7, 2017

The definitive James Bond DVD and Blu-ray boxset wasn't definitive at all, it seems...

Here’s a bit of an odd story for you. Back in September 2012, a boxset of James Bond movies was released, that claimed to gather “all the Bond films” in one set for the first time. As such, lots of people bought said set, including a customer by the name of Mary Johnson.

See related  Broadchurch series 3: Jodie Whittaker interview Doctor Who, and the casting of Jodie Whittaker Bodies: excellent medical drama not for the faint-hearted

Thing is, Mary Johnson wasn’t best pleased to note that two 007 adventures were missing from the set. The original, comedy-driven take on Casino Royale, and the unofficial remake of Thunderball, Never Say Never Again.

Given that the box copy was boastful about the set containing every Bond film adventure – we assume that Stormbreaker doesn’t count, »

Roger Moore’s James Bond: appreciating the raised eyebrow

9 July 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim George Jul 10, 2017

An appreciation of the late Roger Moore, and his importance to the James Bond series...

It took me a long time to realise this but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense: Roger Moore is the most important actor to play James Bond. For while Sean Connery created the icon, Roger Moore is the reason why we are still trotting out to the cinema. This premise might sound like sacrilege.

Review: "Bank Shot" (1974) Starring George C. Scott; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Release

9 July 2017 5:56 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Few would argue that George C. Scott was one of the greatest actors of stage and screen. His presence in even a mediocre movie elevated its status considerably and his work as the nutty general in "Dr. Strangelove" was described by one critic as "the comic performance of the decade". When Scott won his well-deserved Oscar for Best Actor in "Patton" (which he famously refused), he seemed to be on a roll. His next film, the darkly satirical comedy "The Hospital" predicted the absurdities of America's for-profit health care system in which the rich and the poor were taken care of, with everyone else falling in between. The film earned Scott another Best Actor Oscar nomination despite his snubbing of the Academy the previous year. From that point, however, Scott's choice of film roles was wildly eclectic. There were some gems and plenty of misfires that leads »

Ed Catto: Live and Let Love the One You’re With

5 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last week, the front page of The New York Times mourned the death of Roger Moore. Shockingly, they ran a photo from Live and Let Die showing the actor, as James Bond, in bed with Jane Seymour, right there on the front page.

How fitting. But there’s a catch. While I’m a big James Bond fan, amongst 007 fans, Sean Connery is always revered at the “real” face of Bond. I get that. And if fact, when I read James Bond prose adventures I generally conjure up Connery’s face and voice as I visualize the scenes.

On the other hand… there was a 70s sentiment that admonished us all to love the one we’re with. And growing up, Roger Moore was the Bond I was with.

I clearly remember the day when my parents were debating the merits of taking my brother, Colin, and me to see a movie. »

Pierce Brosnan Pays Tribute to Fellow James Bond Actor Roger Moore

31 May 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sir Roger Moore, the longest-serving actor to ever take on the role of James Bond, unfortunately passed away at the age of 89 last week. To say we lost a legend would be an understatement, and the world knows it. One of his fellow James Bond stars, Pierce Brosnan, has now penned a touching, heartfelt and lengthy tribute to Roger Moore, revealing how much respect he had for the actor, as well as some personal insights into their relationship.

Pierce Brosnan penned the column for Variety, in which, he describes Roger Moore as his "first real hero". Roger Moore starred in seven James Bond movies, starting with Live and Let Die and ending with A View to a Kill from the years of 1973 to 1985. In the column, Brosnan explains that, even before his role turn as 007, Roger Moore influenced him on the TV series The Saint as Simon Templar. Here's what »

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Remembers Roger Moore as Bond, James Bond

31 May 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Shaken, Not Stirred.” “Bond, James Bond.” “Jaws.” All the Bond iconography was celebrated by the actor who portrayed him in the most films, and the longest time period. Sir Roger Moore brought a suave and quipping Jb to the filmgoers of the 1970s and ‘80s, so the film writers of HollywoodChicago.com – Jon Espino, Patrick McDonald and Spike Walters – bring essays in honor of their favorite Roger Moore Bond films.

Roger Moore Strikes a Familiar Pose as James Bond

The roguish Moore portrayed Britain’s most famous spy with a air of sophistication and humor, eschewing the harder edge that the first Bond, Sean Connery, had established. From the first film, “Live and Let Die” (1972) to 13 years later with “A View to a Kill,” Moore defined Bond for a generation of 1970s and ‘80s filmgoers.

Pierce Brosnan Reflects on the 'Kindness and Humanity' of Late James Bond Star Roger Moore

30 May 2017 7:26 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pierce Brosnan is paying tribute to fellow James Bond star, Roger Moore.

Following the 89-year-old actor's death last week, Brosnan penned an emotional essay for Variety, published on Tuesday, in which he opens up about Moore's impact on his own life and career, calling the star his "first real hero."

"Only on reflection do I see how much of an influence Roger Moore had on me as a young Irish immigrant lad from the banks of the River Boyne," Brosnan wrote. "I guess the combination of Bond and The Saint ignited a flame for fame in my heart of innocent wonder. I wanted to be up there. Roger as the Saint made me believe in his world. And before I knew it, the man who was the Saint transformed into James Bond, an even greater hero to me as a boy."

David Bowers interview: Wimpy Kid, James Bond, family movies

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

The director of the new Wimpy Kid - and the last three - on the movie, and why he doesn't like deleted scenes...

Returning for the fourth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid film – and his third as director – is British-born director David Bowers. Having started with animation – directing Flushed Away and Astro Boy, amongst his extensive credits – Bowers has since been primarily working on bringing Jeff Kinney’s characters to the screen.

Ahead of the release in UK cinemas this Friday of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, he spared us some time for a chat about the movie.

We started by my asking if he’d been to see the film himself since it was finished…

I went on Saturday to watch it. My mother in law wanted to see it. The guy in front of us, who’d grudgingly taken his seven-year old daughter, »

How Roger Moore Made the Role of James Bond His Own

24 May 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few actors have come across quite so invincible onscreen as Roger Moore, the James Bond star who dodged death by sharks (“Live and Let Die”), yo-yo buzzsaw (“Octopussy”), space lasers (“Moonraker”) and a demented Christopher Walken (“A View to a Kill”), barely so much as creasing his tuxedo in the process.

Moore played 007 in seven movies over the course of a dozen years, dodging more bullets — golden and otherwise — than we could possibly count. But sooner or later, fate was sure to catch up with the debonair star. All men are mortal, of course, but not so Bond, who’s been saving the world since 1962 (“Dr. No”), and with his passing, Moore became the first big-screen Bond to leave us.

He was actually the third star to play the part, taking over the role from Sean Connery in 1973, and unlike Australian model George Lazenby (who played 007 just once, in “On »

‘Becoming Bond’ Director Sees George Lazenby and Daniel Craig as Kindred Spirits

23 May 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every serious 007 fan has a particular film that hooked them on the franchise. For Josh Greenbaum, the writer and director of Hulu’s new docudrama “Becoming Bond,” that film was the Pierce Brosnan blockbuster “GoldenEye.”

“That’s the one that did it for me,” says Greenbaum at a premiere screening at Cinefamily. “As many people my age will attest, the Nintendo game version of that film was huge. It took the movie and turned it into a first-person shooter where you could walk around the sets of a real James Bond film and kill your friends.”

Jane Seymour recalled Roger Moore, with whom she co-starred in 1973’s James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, as a “long lost brother” and described him as being one of the funniest men in her life.

“We used to giggle terribly,” she said.

Moore, who portrayed Bond in seven movies starting with Live and Let Die, died at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.

Seymour was 20 when she nabbed the role of Solitaire, a Tarot card-reading psychic working for a Bond villain who loses her virginity to 007.

James Bond Actors Pay Tribute to Sir Roger Moore

23 May 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world lost a legend today, as Sir Roger Moore, the man who played 007 in seven James Bond movies, passed away after losing a battle with cancer. Moore, who was 89 years old, was the man who played the character for the longest and brought a very distinct style to the role of Bond. Now, his fellow James Bond stars have released statements, paying tribute to the late actor.

Roger Moore famously took over the lead role in the James Bond franchise following Sean Connery's departure once he completed Diamonds are Forever. Despite Connery's mixed feelings toward the producers of the franchise, he never harbored ill will for Roger Moore and released a statement to Entertainment Weekly following the news of his passing. Here's what he had to say.

"I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing. We had an unusually long relationship, by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter. »

The 74-year-old Beatle was saddened by the news of the passing of the James Bond actor, writing, "Roger was a great man and of course a great James Bond who I was lucky to work with during the time of 'Live and Let Die.'
