We Need To Talk About Ridley: The essential problem with the new Alien movie

18 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Is it best when Ridley Scott is tethered to a well-constructed source? On the basis of his new Alien movie, Sean Wilson thinks this could well be the case…

There’s a lot to admire about Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s gore-strewn return to the sci-fi horror franchise he kickstarted back in 1979. As a piece of visual, physical spectacle it’s extraordinary: visually elegant and sleek, never going in for cheap shocks but fully engaging us in an otherworldly atmosphere. It’s what we’ve come to expect from the world-builder responsible for the original Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator and countless other handsome spectacles. As a piece of storytelling however, it’s an altogether different proposition, more on which momentarily.

Sadly it appears that Scott, who it goes without saying is one of cinema’s truly great visionaries, has past form in this area. In particular, the quality of Scott »

Ridley Scott: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Is a ‘Thinking Man’s Scary Movie’

17 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ridley Scott has one goal with his new movie, “Alien: Covenant.”

“I’m hoping to scare the s–t out of you,” says the legendary director. “If I don’t, I’m in trouble.”

If the past 40 years are any indication, the odds are in Scott’s favor. Since entering the movie game later in life — he was 40 when his debut feature “The Duellists” came out in 1977 — Scott has been taking audiences on wild rides with such films as “Alien,” its prequel “Prometheus” and, most recently, with the Academy Award-nominated blockbuster “The Martian.” Along the way, he’s racked up four Oscar nominations, won two Emmy Awards and landed a permanent place in the film zeitgeist with groundbreaking movies including  “Blade Runner,” “Thelma and Louise” and “Gladiator.”

This week, Scott will earn another honor when his hands and feet are encased in cement outside the Chinese Theatre on May 17. Though »

What Could Go Wrong: Interview with Alien: Covenant's Michael FassbenderWhat Could Go Wrong: Interview with Alien: Covenant's Michael FassbenderJulide Tanriverdi - Cineplex Magazine5/17/2017 10:58:00 Am

It’s a rainy, chilly day in L.A. but Michael Fassbender is all smiles during an interview at the city’s London Hotel.

“They put me back together, and I am back,” he says with a grin. Fassbender is of course talking about Alien: Covenant, the latest installment in director Ridley Scott’s horror/sci-fi franchise.

Our last visit to the Alien universe came in 2012 with Prometheus, a film that ended with Fassbender’s android David losing his head and having it carried off the spaceship in a bag by crewmate Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace).

The movie got mixed reviews and didn’t connect with the franchise’s passionate fanbase. But expectations are high this month as Scott returns to the »

Damien Chazelle Wins DGA Award for ‘La La Land,’ Oscars Will Follow

4 February 2017 11:31 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The inevitable occurred Saturday night as Damien Chazelle accepted the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for “La La Land” from last year’s winner, A.G. Inarritu. The DGA winner is usually a pretty certain match with the Oscar for the Best Director — the winner has not gone on to take the Academy Award only seven times. (The most recent example: in 2012 non-Oscar directing nominee Ben Affleck won the DGA Award for “Argo,” while Ang Lee won the Oscar for “Life of Pi.”)

Chazelle beat fellow first-time DGA and Oscar nominees Barry Jenkins (presented by his charming trio of stars in $1.5 million “Moonlight”), Kenneth Lonergan (introduced by “Manchester By the Sea” star Casey Affleck) and Denis Villeneuve (tributed by Amy Adams of  “Arrival”).

“Film is a universal language,” Chazelle said, recalling how the French New Wave directors fell in love with Hollywood sans sub-titles. He also »

Film Anniversaries To Look Forward To In 2017

1 January 2017 3:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at what films are celebrating milestones this year…

With 2017 now underway, it’s time to stop looking at what happened in film in 2016, and start looking forward to the new year by looking back. Here are some film anniversaries you can look forward to.

2017 will mark the tenth anniversary of the release of such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Spider-Man 3, the three highest grossing films of 2007. That’s right, it was hardly a classic year at the cinema, though you can mark the decade since the release of Zodiac in March and There Will Be Blood in December, films worth certainly worth revisiting.

It’s also twenty years since 1997, which means we’ll probably get anniversary edition Blu-rays of Titanic and The Full Monty. Yes, it’s really been that long. »
