Interview: A conversation with actor and writer Paul Darrow

Villordsutch chats with actor and writer Paul Darrow

I was given the chance to interview Paul Darrow, very much a childhood hero of mine, last week and I jumped at it.  The day it was supposed to happen I fell ill and him being the gentlemen agreed to put it back to the following morning.  I’d set out with seven questions expecting it to take no more than ten minutes tops and instead I came off the phone after forty minutes wishing I had the entire day to carry on speaking with him.

After the introductions and Paul’s enquires about my health, I was rather in awe that I was speaking with quite possibly the epitome of cool when I was a child watching television (and quite possible still is); whilst not attempting to babble at Paul, he asks if he can get a cigarette as it helps »

Rumor: Disney Struggling With Boba Fett Spin Off Movie

7 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As little as we’ve heard about Star Wars Episode VII, we’ve heard even less about what’s coming next. The plan was originally for a Star Wars spin-off/origin film to hit in 2016, followed by Star Wars Episode VIII in 2017, another spin off/origin in 2018, and then Episode IX in 2019. And while we don’t know […]

10 Great Overlooked Films From The 1970s

13 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've had a conversation with a serious cinephile in the last week or so, there's probably only been one real subject of discussion. Well, once you've finished talking about "Heaven Is For Real," anyway. Tuesday saw the release of a shiny new Blu-ray of the brand new restored version of William Friedkin's "Sorcerer." Long unavailable on home video, Friedkin's 1977 remake of "The Wages Of Fear" was an expensive flop buried in part by the release of "Star Wars," but it has only grown in estimation over the years, and after a long legal wrangling, was finally reclaimed by the director last year, and hit stores earlier this week. This means that one of the holy grails of 1970s American cinema has had its reputation mostly restored; what was dismissed in many quarters on release is now deemed to be one of the director's finest films, to sit alongside »

What's Up With Mrs. Doubtfire 2? And Other Sequels That Took Decades

13 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's been over 20 years since Mrs. Doubtfire became our favorite movie, possibly of all time. When the announcement for the sequel came about, the 5-year-old inside us all burst with unabashed joy. However, we couldn't help but wonder what took so long. Plenty of movies rush to make a lesser-awesome version of the original. Let's take a look back at some classics like Star Wars and Rambo that waited decades to unleash a second (or third) film. Does more time make the sequel grow stronger? »

Watch Darth Vader, Boba Fett And Other Star Wars Characters Dance To Pop Songs

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney World's Star Wars Weekend is approaching! The annual event, which actually runs for a series of weekends in the Florida theme park, is set to begin next month. What better way to warm up for it than by watching your favorite Star Wars characters dance to pop music? These videos are from the (formerly) recurring "Hyperspace Hoopla" dance-off event, which was held at Disney's Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends, and featured various characters from the films showing off their moves in hilarious fashion. After all, what's funnier than Darth Vader and a bunch of Storm Troopers dancing to "You Can't Touch This"? Or Michael Jackson's "Bad"? Or Chewy dancing to "Hey Ya!" Points to all of these dancers, not only for their dancing skills, but for their ability to pull off these dance routines in those costumes, which probably make it pretty hard to see. You'd think »

President Obama Challenges Japanese Robot to Soccer Game

15 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The voice was slightly halting, childlike. "Welcome to Miraikan, Mr. President, it is a pleasure to meet you." President Barack Obama bowed, looking delighted. His greeter, after all, was a 55-inch-tall, give or take, humanoid robot with the look of a diminutive Star Wars stormtrooper. "It's nice to meet you, too," Obama said, pausing to watch the robot, named Asimo, perform during a tour of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. Despite Obama's background in constitutional law, there's a presidential geek side to him that always seems charmed, if not bemused, by technological advances. Asimo, made by Honda, »

'Star Wars' Storyboards Reveal Strange Alternate Versions of Your Favorite Characters

16 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Star Wars’ cast of characters are some of the most iconic in all of film history – but as these storyboards prove, a few of your favorite denizens from a galaxy far, far away were originally conceived looking at least a little differently than the ones that wound up in the film. This group of storyboard photos, released to promote the new book Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, feature work by artists Alex Tavoularis, Joe Johnston and Ivan Beddoes. The images show iconic characters like Darth Vader, C-3Po, R2-D2 and Yoda as they were originally envisioned. What’s striking about the artwork is that all of the characters look relatively similar to their on-screen counterparts, but even the minor changes in the storyboards stick out. Take Darth Vader...

Star Wars: Episode VII's Full Title to be Revealed at Sdcc?

17 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

May the 4th, the official Star Wars day, is almost here, and most sources are pointing to that being the day we get some official Star Wars: Episode VII news...Which makes sense considering the film is starting production that month and something has to come out soon.  Until then, however, we're stuck with rumors and today's is a report about when we'll finally know the full title of the film. 

I know it's a tad ridiculous that we're reduced to reporting on rumors for when we'll be getting news...but that's just how anticipated the new Star Wars movie is.  What's really ridiculous/sad is how excited I get over little news bits like this, which ultimately aren't really news.  Alas, such is the life of hardcare Star Wars fanboys like myself. 

Today's scoop comes from Vulture's editor Kyle Buchanan who took to twitter to drop this tasty bit: »

Watch This: Awesome Cyber Punk 80's Anime Version of 'Harry Potter'

18 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's Voldemort - he's hacking him!" Thank you, the internet and people of this world, for bringing us such awesome and crazy creations. This one is a mash-up of Harry Potter and, well, Akira, to create a badass cyber punk 80's anime. It's made by YouTube channel Nacho Punch and borrows heavily from Akira, but is similar to their other recent anime video parodying Star Wars. I happen to think this one is a bit better, and is not only funny in all the right spots, but has some nice animation for a YouTube comedy sketch. It's only just a quick trailer (if only it was the entire movie or even a short segment!) but damn is it fun. Enjoy! "What if Harry Potter was a 1980's Cyber Punk Anime? Watch and found out!" Thanks to Wired for the tip. Found on YouTube from Nacho Punch, the same guys who »

Stars Wars remade by man with all his own sound effects - watch video

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Most adults of a certain age can remember playing Star Wars in the school playground and adding their own sound effects for the lightsaber battles.

However, one YouTube video has taken that to a whole new level.

Hudson Hongo's Star Wars: Bad Foley Edition has reworked the sci-fi classic with his own take on how it should sound. The results can be watched above.

The moment we heard the Chewbacca impression, we were totally on board with this.

The humming lightsabers and pow-pow gunfire noises brought memories of our childhoods flooding back as well.

More of the creator's work can be found on his personal website. »

What inspires 'Frozen' and 'Toy Story's creative executive

21 hours ago | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, April 24: Ed Catmull, who's the creative mind behind top-grossing animated films 'Frozen' as well as 'Toy Story 3', has revealed the inspiration for his work in his new book 'Creativity Inc.'

The 69-year-old President of both Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios said that Walt Disney and Albert Einstein were his heroes growing up, and he wanted to be an animator, but didn't know how to go about it as there weren't any schools for it, ABC News reported.

In the book, Catmull, who helped create the entire field of computer animation, said that his first job was with George Lucas for his 'Star Wars' films, while. »

Hot Docs 2014: 'Harmontown' Review

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Within seconds after sitting down to watch "Harmontown," you will notice that the doc is brought to you by "Starburns Industries." For those in the know, the production company is paying homage to one of the bit characters played by Dino Stamatopoulos on the TV show "Community." Those who watch the show will get a lot out of "Harmontown," and there may just be something for everyone else.

Dan Harmon is the comedic genius behind programs like "The Sarah Silverman Show," and the cult pilot one-off "Heat Vision and Jack," but his baby is "Community." The NBC art-sitcom experiment has been a massive underground hit, rewarding endless fanboys and girls with rapid-fire cultural references, endearing nerdy characters and non-stop punchy one-liners. The show is by no means a ratings-getter, and every new season is borne out of a turbulent gestation. Harmon's perfectionist work ethic towards the production and casting of »

A Couple of Heirs of Travis Bickle:

“A 34-year-old messenger still living at home, Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) dreams of becoming a stand-up comedy star. To force fate’s hand, he stalks and kidnaps his idol, the TV talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). Martin Scorsese’s 1983 movie “The King of Comedy” not only told a story but identified a malaise. Call it Pupkinitis.”

Luc Besson on casting Scarlett Johansson as 'Lucy' and his philosophy of action

23 April 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My favorite moment during the Saturday afternoon panel I moderated for Universal's upcoming movie "Lucy" was when an audience member asked director Luc Besson if he'd be interested in directing a Marvel Studios movie about "Black Widow" starring Scarlett Johansson. "I am afraid of spiders," he answered, and then just looked at me, ready to move on to the next question. If you've seen the first trailer for the movie, you get the general idea. Besson says he started noodling with the idea a decade ago, the first time he heard someone mention that "we only use 10% of our brains" idea. "I know it is wrong," he said, "but I liked the idea and I just wanted to start there. What happens if we take a character from that 10% to 100%?" When Universal asked if I'd like to moderate the panel, it was an easy yes. After all, this isn't just »
