The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

12 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Cai Ross

The original Planet of The Apes movies occupied a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the new post-Rise cycle) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Annie Hall: the greatest rom-com ever?

12 June 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robin Bell Aug 10, 2017

Woody Allen's Annie Hall is regarded as one of the best romantic comedies ever. We take a look back at a classic...

When writing about films that you love, it is very easy to begin with a preamble where you eulogise about the said film in a way that only discusses your feelings for it, and doesn't delve into and analyse the reasons why the film is so important. I will try to avoid that here and get straight to the point as to why Annie Hall is the greatest romantic comedy of all time. I feel this is the introduction the film requires - a little awkward, and wanting to analyse everything that little bit deeper.

Annie Hall breaks so many supposed 'rules' that films have. If you narrow that down to the rules of the romantic comedy then it completely obliterates them. In terms of the romantic comedy, »

5 Lessons For Actresses from Diane Keaton’s AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Tribute

9 June 2017 4:03 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Diane Keaton accepted the 45th AFI Life Achievement Award from Woody Allen in Hollywood Thursday night, it was the end of one of the more memorable AFI tributes. And as one actress after another explained why Keaton was such a significant role model — from Oscar-winners Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon (Keaton-directed TV movie “Wildflower”) and Meryl Streep (“Marvin’s Room”) to Rachel McAdams (“The Family Stone”) and comedienne Lisa Kudrow (“Hanging Up”) —  it struck me that all actresses should pay attention to why Keaton is so admired and emulated.

Here are some wise lessons to be learned from the star of  “Play It Again Sam,” “The First Wives Club,” “Crimes of the Heart,”  “Shoot the Moon,” and HBO’s “The Young Pope.”

1. Stay single.

Keaton launched her Hollywood career with the day-long wedding scene in “The Godfather,” at the end of which she and fellow theater outsider Al Pacino proceeded to get royally drunk. »

Ghosts of Futures Predicted: How Hollywood Imagined We’d Be Living Now

30 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Cai Ross

Earth’s future has always proved a playground of possibility for scriptwriters and directors. Artists are rarely content to make do within the confines of what is merely possible. Setting a movie years in the future is a way of letting their minds off the leash, while usually offering an allegorical reflection of the times in which we currently live. As one fictional time-travel expert once said, “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.”

Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is the latest in a long line of visual soothsayers who has made his own fate in the form of Ghost In The Shell, which offers us a metropolitan futureworld full of gymnastic augmented cybernetic agents, colossal 3D advertisements and the increasingly regular sight of Juliette Binoche in a lab-coat.

Like many futuristic sci-fi movies, Ghost In The Shell »
