20 Greatest Directors Of The New Millennium

18 July 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Christopher Nolan

In the early 20th century, when the public’s love affair with cinema began, we were first introduced to this beguiling new art form through its stars, and this is exactly how the powers that be wanted it. When the Hollywood studios ran the film industry like a tightly controlled, upper-class bordello, the emphasis was placed on the faces you could see, the actors, and a films director existed in some theoretical dark corner of the silver screen, practicing some ethereal cinematic wizardry that the plebeian film fan could never even hope to understand. As the Hepburns’, Davis’, Borgarts’, and Gables’ of the world began to age though, and their box office power diminished, the studios were briefly forced to let the inmates run the prison, handing over the keys to the pesky directors. Suddenly, the auteur was born.

While technically speaking, Auteur Theory, the belief that a »

Thousands of People Believe Steven Spielberg Killed a Dinosaur

12 July 2014 5:49 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Nothing gets more hate on the internet than photos of hunters with the animals that they just shot. And now, director Steven Spielberg is on the receiving end of that hate for a photo of him from twenty years ago, posing next to a dead animal (pictured). The problem is that the photo is from the set of "Jurassic Park" and the animal is a fake triceratops that was created for the movie. For those who are not aware, triceratops have been extinct for over sixty million years. Apparently lots of people are not aware. In fact, tens of thousands aren't aware, since the image has been reposted over 30,000 times and received such comments as "Steven Spielberg, I'm disappointed in you. I'm not watching any of your movies again Animal Killer" and "Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct. Sickos like this kill every last one of them as soon as they are discovered. »

Quint's Favorite Beer from 'Jaws' Is Making a Comeback for a Limited Time Only

7 July 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There's a great scene in Jaws... actually, every scene in Jaws is a great scene. However, one of our favorite, quieter moments comes when Quint (Robert Shaw) finishes drinking a beer and then crushes the can with one hand. Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) in turn makes a show of chugging his water and crushing the tiny plastic cup in his hand. Well now, thanks to a small brewery from Rhode Island, you can honor this scene with historical accuracy.  For this summer only, Narragansett Beer is rereleasing its can design from 1975 that was used in the movie*. And not only that, but the company is using proceeds from the sales of these cans to support shark conservation by sponsoring a satellite tag to help researchers track a shark, as well as a tracking buoy...

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. »

Shark Attack! Great White Bites Man Off California Coast—Watch Now!

7 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One 50-year-old man's typical Saturday at the beach turned into a scene right out of Jaws! Steven Robles was going for a swim in Southern California when he unexpectedly encountered a 7-foot great white shark. "I saw that shark just eyeball to eyeball, just like you and I, exactly the same distance, and it came in and bit me,'' Robles told Today in an interview airing Monday. "I grabbed its nose, and I started to pull it off me. I got lucky that it released itself." Two beachgoers captured the confrontation on camera, and while the footage is blurry and shot from far away, it's quite clear that Robles put up a fight. "I used my hand to grab his nose, pried him off of me," he told »

Check out the retro poster below and get ready to drink like a battle scarred captain facing down the greatest terror he's even seen. »

Steven Spielberg Film Collection Coming To Blu-Ray

2 July 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Steven Spielberg is quite often the first name that springs to mind when somebody mentions the word Hollywood, as the man is responsible for some of the most ground-breaking and truly memorable movie moments since the birth of celluloid. With that in mind, here at We Got This Covered we were very pleased to get wind of the fact that a box set dedicated to the director’s immeasurable impact on cinema is set to be released on Blu-Ray. Quite frankly, we couldn’t be more excited.

Why, you ask? Well, when you think of Spielberg, what films do you think of? E.T? Jaws? Jurassic Park? The list goes on and on for the three time Academy award-winning director – so much, in fact, that you could probably fill plenty more box-sets with the man’s work. But that is not the reason we’ve gotten a little giddy. No, »

Independence Day: the film that defined modern summer movies

2 July 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Independence Day was released in the Us 18 years ago today. Ryan looks at its ongoing impact on how summer movies are made and marketed...

Feature

In 1990, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were Hollywood outsiders. Devlin was a young New York-born actor who'd appeared in a few TV shows and movies, such as the 1985 comedy, Real Genius. Emmerich was a German filmmaker whose credits consisted of low-budget films such as The Noah's Ark Principle (1984), and Hollywood-Monster (1987). Emmerich's 1990 film, Moon 44, was about pilots defending mining colonies with space-faring helicopters, and featured a glum-looking Malcolm McDowell.

Dean Devlin was also among Moon 44's cast, and it was here that he forged a partnership with Emmerich: Devlin hated Moon 44's dialogue, so he went and wrote his own. Within two years, they'd made their first film together - Universal Soldier, written by Devlin, directed by Emmerich, and produced by Carolco. »

Universal Announces Steven Spielberg Director’S Collection Blu-ray; Will Include Duel, The Sugarland Express, and More

1 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though I don't love every single one of his movies, Steven Spielberg will always be one of my favorite directors.  He was one of the key figures in making me a die-hard movie fan.  His worldwide influence is undeniable, he shaped Hollywood in the modern era, and he's been going strong for decades (there are going to be so many Jaws retrospective pieces next year for the film's 40th anniversary).  This fall, Universal will release a new 8-film Blu-ray collection of his work.  The Steven Spielberg Director's Collection will include digitally remastered versions of Duel and The Sugarland Express (both their first time on Blu-ray, and the first-ever widescreen presentation for Duel in the U.S. and Canada) as well as the Blu-ray debuts for 1941 (theatrical and extended versions) and Always.  The set also includes Jaws, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Hit »

Twenty Reasons Why Laurent Durieux Creates the Best Movie Poster

30 June 2014 8:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Laurent Durieux has spent two decades as a designer and teacher, but the 42-year-old Brussels illustrator and graphic artist was only recently discovered in the United States, thanks to a number of high-profile awards and marquee commissions. After contributing a piece entitled, François à l’Americaine, for a show celebrating the French director, Jacques Tati, Laurent was selected by Lürzer’s Archive magazine as one of the top 200 illustrators for 2012. In 2013, his screenprint of Jaws, caught the attention of Steven Spielberg and since his name has become synonymous with exquisitely rendered illustrations. His art is often described as a blend between the retro-futuristic world of H.G. Wells and the 1960s pop-culture. Laurent’s work has such beautiful compositions, vibrant colours, and meticulous detail, that you just can’t look away.

John Williams To Appear At The Academy’s ‘Behind the Score: The Art of the Film Composer’ Program on July 21

30 June 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Composers Gustavo Dudamel, Gustavo Santaolalla and John Williams will gather at the Academy for “Behind the Score: The Art of the Film Composer,” on Monday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m. at the Bing Theater in Los Angeles.

In a conversation hosted by Tavis Smiley, the illustrious trio will discuss significant musical moments in film that have inspired their work as they examine the art and process of creating a film score as well as the director-composer collaboration.

Dudamel, now entering his sixth season as music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, made his first foray into composing for motion pictures with “The Liberator (Libertador),” a biopic about Simón Bolívar that screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival earlier this month.  The score for this film, as well as a CD on Deutsche Grammophon, was recorded with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, of which Dudamel is music director.  Dudamel »

John Williams, Gustavo Santaolalla and Gustavo Dudamel Take The Academy Behind the Score

30 June 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

If you're a music buff, especially one in Los Angeles, the names John Williams, Gustavo Santaolalla and Gustavo Dudamel are practically sacred.  Next month, on July 21, the three will sit down with PBS host Tavis Smiley to discuss their inspiration as composers, the art and craft of creating a film score and the collaborative relationship between directors and composers. John Williams, of course, is the legendary composer of films such as "Star Wars," "Jaws," "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and, well, just about everything else Steven Spielberg has ever made.  He has five Oscars to his name, and 49 nominations--the most of any living individual. Santaolalla snagged consecutive Oscars in 2005 and 2006 for "Brokeback Mountain" and "Babel."  He has scored many of Alejandro González Iñárritu's films.  Most recently, he composed the music for the video game "The Last of Us."

Can Lucas build a Legacy?

28 June 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr on whether George Lucas can build a legacy with ‘The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art’….

‘Narrative art’ is defined as something ‘that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time’

George Lucas has retired apparently. Having sold his empire to Disney making him wealthier than a barely developed principality with minimal infrastructure, we are now being treated to phase two in the Lucas mid-life crisis.

When I first heard that Norman Rockwell, foremost painter of post war Americana was being placed alongside original Star Wars miniatures and props it made no sense. Rockwell was known for capturing perfect moments in life which told a story or narrative beyond the confines of the frame. How could Lucas have the temerity to place his work alongside that of a real artist?

Informally known as ‘The Lucas Museum of »
