Win Tickets To September Retro Night Of Monty Python And The Holy Grail Thursday, September 3

28 August 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

B&B Wildwood Theatre is having their September Retro Night on Thursday, September 3rd. They are showing the classic film, Monty Python And The Holy Grail. Shows are at 4pm & 7pm.

The screenplay was a joyous romp through set pieces that sent up the serious, mythic characters at its center. As King Arthur (Graham Chapman) rounds up the gallant Knights of the Round Table to ride to Camelot, he must contend with subjects who are politically unfazed by his divinely-dispensed authority. He must also wield his sword against the Black Knight (John Cleese), a fearsome opponent whose gradual dismemberment fails to quell his desire to fight.

After turning away from Camelot (“It is a silly place,” he says despairingly), Arthur sees a miraculous vision of God in the clouds above, who sets forth a task for his knights: find the Holy Grail. (“Good idea, O Lord.” ” ‘Course it’s a good idea! »

Watch: #Tbt The Funniest Part of 'Monty Python and The Holy Grail' Isn't in 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'

20 August 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Here Are Terry Gilliam's 10 Best Reddit Ama Moments At last, it has been brought forth unto our collective eyeballs! An epic quest finally reaches its end, as we have found what surely must be the finest trailer to be stitched together by the fingers of man.  Or perhaps it’s just a fairly exciting story. With some low budget adventure. Compared to something like Bergman’s "The Seventh Seal," it’s all rather silly. In any case, if you’re an intellectual midget and you like giggling, behold! When was the last time you saw a trailer in which the funniest parts weren’t actually part of the movie? Never, and when we’re talking about a film as full of classic one-liners as "Monty Python and The Holy Grail," that’s an even more impressive distinction.   John, Eric, Graham, Terry, Terry and Michael are the uncontested kings of self-aware comedy, »

Film Review: ‘Absolutely Anything’

11 August 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relatively confident that he will fail but curious to see what might come of the experiment, an alien council endows a perfectly average human with the power to do whatever he pleases in “Absolutely Anything.” Come to think of it, that must have been roughly how the financiers felt when backing Monty Python legend Terry Jones’ latest disappointment, a clunky sci-fi satire set to bomb abroad before it reaches U.S. theaters: Though the pic’s backers can’t have been too shocked by the result, Jones’ potential to surprise, plus his ability to call in favors from friends (including vocal performances from all five surviving Pythons and deceased comedy god Robin Williams), must have seemed to justify the gamble — all for nothing.

Speaking of gods, Jones’ premise — which surely would’ve worked better in animation — is just the sort of which all-powerful deities would approve, be they of the »

The stories behind TV production company closing logos

10 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grr, argh. Sit, Ubu, sit. I made this! What’s the story behind the production company tags added onto our favourite TV shows?

Closing logos have evolved into a TV production company’s tiny stamp of individuality. They’re a single snippet of screen time not at the mercy of network notes, audience feedback or sponsorship concerns.

A closing tag doesn’t need to sell a show, tell a story, or lasso an audience back for the next episode. It’s simply a signature, a few seconds entirely belonging to the creatives, to do with what they will.

As such, closing logos are as self-indulgent or esoteric as the production company wills them. They’re perhaps the only place in television production where in-jokes, family photos, personal homages (or extended rants in the case of one comedy producer) and kid-drawn scribbles usually found taped to the fridge door are entirely welcome. »

New Trailer For Pan Sails Online

16 July 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

"What an eccentric performance," observed King Arthur of Tim The Enchanter in Monty Python And The Holy Grail. But Tim, it turns out, is positively subdued compared to the riot of colour and theatrical hamming on display in Joe Wright's incoming Pan. Second star to the right and straight on til morning is the address for Neverland, but you don't need to go that far to see the new trailer. Look, it's right here!As you'll have seen from that, Wright has gone all out for fantasy spectacle, and the trailer editors are clearly much enamoured of his flying ships. Levi Miller is Peter Pan before we meet him in Jm Barrie's classic tale (for this be a prequel, my lads), and Huge Ackman is the dread pirate Blackbeard: an important player in the film's other origin story for Garrett Hedlund's Captain Hook.Peter is a wartime orphan »

Forbidden Empire – The Review

19 May 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the grand tradition of Russian fantasy films comes a new version of the supernatural legend of The Viy, written by Nicolai Gogol and previously filmed several times, most memorably by Mario Bava as one of the tales in Black Sabbath, (easily my favorite due to the participation of Boris Karloff.).

In Forbidden Empire, a young English cartographer Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) takes to the road after being chased out of the house by his lovers Father, played by Charles Dance, after being caught in bed with her.

Looking very much like a Terry Gilliam movie, with the frame over crowded with bizarre machinery, filthy looking characters in period costume (set in the 18th century) and lots of cgi monsters, Forbidden Empire is a beautiful film to behold and more than a little disjointed and episodic.

But like classic Russian fantasy films of the past such as Sword and the Dragon, »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell episode 1 review: The Friends Of English Magic

17 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

BBC One fantasy drama Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a marvel, from its cast to its magnificent world-building…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 The Friends Of English Magic

If, like members of the fusty York Society Of Magicians, you needed proof that magic has been restored to England, that episode was it. Forget bringing half a hundred statues to life, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell has pulled off an even unlikelier feat: bringing quality grown-up fantasy to UK television.

Susanna Clarke’s source novel was a canny choice for the task. Its Regency setting plays to the BBC’s period drama strengths and grounds the seven-part series in a recognisable context for any viewers who might ordinarily run a mile at the word ‘faerie’.

Not that Marc Warren’s chilling Gentleman (the sinister being in the Liberace wig and Norman Lamont eyebrows who showed up towards the end of tonight’s episode »

Daily | Cannes 2015 | Matteo Garrone’s Tale Of Tales

14 May 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Lurid, lush, and ludicrous," Matteo Garrone's Tale of Tales with Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones and John C. Reilly "works from Giambattista Basile’s 17th century collection of fairy tales of the same name," notes Blake Williams. David Jenkins suggests it's "a gaudy, bawdy descendent to Pier Paolo Pasolini’s trilogy of life." And the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw sees traces of Walerian Borowczyk’s Immoral Tales. "But there’s also a bit of John Boorman’s Excalibur, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Company of Wolves, the Tenniel illustrations for Alice in Wonderland… and Shrek." We've got more reviews and clips. » - David Hudson »

The Voice Top 5 Performance Recap: No Place Like Home(town Visits)

11 May 2015 7:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I hope you checked your cynicism at the door while watching The Voice semifinals, which featured the Top 5 contestants’ visits to their hometowns.

If you didn’t, you might’ve had horribly unkind responses at inopportune moments — like, for example, involuntarily gagging at a particularly unfortunate Voice-themed pizza presented to Joshua Davis on his return to Traverse City, Mich., or wondering “How many industry connections does one contestant need?” after Naomi Judd and Big & Rich crashed Meghan Linsey’s return trip to Nashville. (Quick poll: Will her A-list connections hurt or help Meghan with voters?)
