The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘Star 80′

20 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their sixth piece, they discuss Bob Fosse’s film Star 80 (1983).

Drew’S Take:

To say that Bob Fosse’s Star 80 (1983) has a bad reputation is a bit of an understatement. Even after the critical and commercial success of his previous hit All That Jazz (1979), 20th Century Fox executives turned their backs on Fosse. Less than three years after the rape and murder of Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten (to say nothing of the necrophilia), a film dramatization seemed to be in poor taste. To magnify the discomfort, Fosse not only left the filming of the grim finale for last – keeping his two lead actors in the dark – but decided to film in the actual house and bedroom the crimes occurred in. The grim »

Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

19 June 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

27 May 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

1979 is our "Year of the Month" and this post was way way too much fun to research. Before the main course of the Supporting Actress Smackdown (pushed to June 7th), let's marinate a little in the year that was.

Jackie Earle Haley, Dennis Quaid, Dennis Christopher, and Daniel Stern broke out via "Breaking Away"

Oscar: Kramer vs Kramer*, All That Jazz, Apocalypse Now, Breaking Away, and Norma Rae were the best pictures nominees but they also loved La Cage Aux Folles, The China Syndrome, Manhattan, Being There and The Black Stallion

Golden Globe: (drama) Kramer vs Kramer*, Apocalypse Now, The China Syndrome, Manhattan and Norma Rae (comedy)  Breaking Away*, Being There, Hair, The Rose, and 10

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

Brett Morgen: The Making of 'Montage of Heck's Mad Scientist

1 May 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Brett Morgen has been called the Mad Scientist of the documentary world with his latest film, the long-awaited Kurt Cobain biography “Montage of Heck.” Morgen certainly lives up to that billing, creating an explosive and totally unique visual and cinematic experiences out of the fallen rock god’s various creations.   I have known Brett since we were both 14 years old, having gone to high school and then college together, where we were in roommates. Since the first days of our acquaintance, I have never known anyone with such a firm sense of who he was and what he wanted to do, and that has only strengthened over the years.   However, what astonished me seeing “Montage” for the first time was how much his creative skills have grown as a director, so that wild, unstoppable sense of Brettism is now married to awe-inspiring technical superpowers, that have enabled him to produce what in my very-biased mind, »

Kim Kardashian Busts Out Her Usual Cleavage and Legs Up to There in a See-Through Skirt: See the Sexy Look!

30 April 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's hard to know where to look first. Kim Kardashian headed out this afternoon for her first appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live since last August in a look that can only be described as half-tuxedo, half Fosse bombshell, and all Kim. Seriously, is there going to be an impromptu performance of "All That Jazz" later? All that's missing is a bowler hat... The E! star wore a plunging black vest over nothing but skin up top, paired with either a bodysuit or hipster-cut shorts under a flowing see-through skirt, which showed off her shapely legs up to there. A satin-trimmed tuxedo jacket completed the dramatic look. Surely we'll get all the fashion credits later. But the »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Alison Bagnall ("Funny Bunny"): I don't know if certain films inspire me anymore, though Jerry Schatzberg's "Scarecrow" is always an inspiration. Certain directors inspire me.

The Blunt Reason Howard Stern Hates Birdman

24 February 2015 8:56 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Like clockwork, the Birdman backlash has begun. It never fails. Whenever a movie survives the rigors of the grueling Academy Awards campaign . facing intense scrutiny from all corners . and emerges victorious on Oscar night, people line up Monday morning to begin shitting all over the film just deemed "Best" by a collective group. As for Birdman, it.s terrible, according to the King of all Media, Howard Stern. Stern was discussing the Oscar race with late-night talk show host Seth Meyers, and decided to unleash on Alejandro Inarritu.s industry comedy. But Stern didn.t just give the movie a thumbs down. He full-on threw Birdman completely under the bus! Stern critiqued: I thought Birdman was the biggest piece of shit. I thought it was pretentious. Listen, seen movies about acting, especially about Broadway -- A Chorus Line, All That Jazz -- that handled this subject so much »

Does American Cinema Editors prize for 'Boyhood' predict Oscar win on Sunday?

19 February 2015 7:35 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s It's an oft-echoed sentiment that movies are made in the cutting room, so the Academy Award for Best Film Editing is a cherished trophy indeed. First, some guild award stats: since 1963, the American Cinema Editors have correctly predicted the eventual Oscar winner 36 times (in years when the award has been split between Dramatic and Musical/Comedy Editing, the specific prize given has been noted): 1963: Harold F. Kress, “How the West Was Won” 1964: Cotton Warburton, “Mary Poppins” 1965: William Reynolds, “The Sound of Music” 1968: Frank P. Keller, “Bullitt” 1970: Hugh S.

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Nacho': I'm at a payphone, trying to call home

16 February 2015 8:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I do the sex robot voice... "I'm no hero." -Jimmy I really enjoyed the first two hours of "Saul," but "Nacho" is the first installment to suggest an actual structure for the new show. We get a story to keep Jimmy occupied for the whole episode, which is resolved on one level even as it's setting things up for future stories with Jimmy getting a look at all the cash the Kettlemans stole. And it's a whole lot of fun from beginning to end. Though Jimmy protests his good guy bonafides, it's worth noting that most of the trouble he gets into here — and, for that matter, that he nearly got himself into with Tuco last week — came from him exercising a conscience that will mostly lie dormant by the time he's Saul Goodman.

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »
