Moviegoers can finally enjoy a film with a genuine hero who served his country and fought in a righteous war
The New England Patriots spent this past weekend earning a spot in the Super Bowl. But many more patriots went to the movies and propelled “American Sniper” to a record-setting January box office weekend.
In doing so, they officially declared war against the likes of Michael Moore, Seth Rogen and so many liberal, peace loving, pot-smoking A-listers and Hollywood suits who, since the 1970s, have had an ambivalent, if not disdainful relationship with war movies in general, and American patriotism in particular. »

Netflix giveth, and Netflix taketh away. The streaming service is always trying to up its game and bring more movies and TV shows to viewers, but that inevitably means that some of our favorites have to get bumped. The monthly purge is one of our least favorite Netflix traditions, but it's a small price to pay to have instant access to every single episode of Friends—especially since those VHS box sets are way out of date. February's list of unlucky programs includes a few that we're not happy to part with—and by a few, we mostly mean Revenge. You have exactly 11 days to soak in all the Emily Thorne you possibly can. A few other notables on the chopping block are Apocalypse Now, Richard Gere »

Every single month, Netflix adds and subtracts movies and television shows from its roster. Like a mad chemist, it never stops tinkering, both pleasing and infuriating users as more and more is added and subtracted. Think of it like one giant game of Dr. Mario, except instead of pills, we.re dealing with content like The Rocketeer and Apocalypse Now. Today, Netflix announced the movies and TV shows that will be taking their last bow, at least for awhile, and sadly, there are some gems in there. We.ve gone ahead and embedded the entire list of content, courtesy of THR, that will disappear sometime in February. So, spend your evenings getting busy. Leaving On February 1st Airheads (1994) Apocalypse Now (1979) Apocalypse Now Redux (2001) A View to Kill (1985) Blackadder: Seasons One-Four (1983-1989) Babes in Toyland (1961) Batman & Robin (1997) Batman Forever (1995) Batman Returns (1992) Cocoon: The Return (1998) Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) Down Priscope (1996) Fawlty Towers »
Netflix has just released their lists of what films and TV shows we will see added in February…and what films and TV shows will vanish.
First, the good news: quite a few classic and popular TV shows are making the grade on the streaming service, including the first five seasons of Mash, Hawaii 5-0, and the new season of House of Cards. New additions to the film list include RoboCop, The Brothers Bloom, and Gimme Shelter. While there’s not a lot of quality stuff on offer, there are at least a few new films and TV shows that we can enjoy on the Netflix streaming service.
Now for the bad news: quite a number of favorites are going to vanish from Netflix come February 1. Among these are several James Bond films, Zodiac, Jane Eyre, and Dredd. The TV shows fare even worse, with tons of BBC shows expiring, »

Having come to the conclusion that it's genuinely useful to tell its users what movies will soon be expiring from its service, Netflix is now releasing a list of the films that will disappear from its coffers (some presumably only for a short time) at the end of every month. Here is a list of what will expire on February 1. Several James Bond films will disappear from Netflix — since they have many times before, expect to see them return at some point soon. We will update the list closer to the end of the month with additional titles.February 1Blackadder (Seasons 1–4) A View to a Kill Airheads Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now Redux Babes in Toyland Batman & Robin Batman Forever Batman Returns Cocoon: The Return Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Down Periscope Fawlty Towers (Seasons 1–2) For Your Eyes Only From Russia With Love Goldfinger Hotel Babylon (Seasons 1–4) Jane Eyre Live »

Robert Duvall gives a typically grandstanding performance opposite Robert Downey Jnr in The Judge – one for which he has just received his seventh Oscar nomination. Duvall, whose film credits range from To Kill a Mocking Bird and The Godfather to Apocalypse Now and Tender Mercies, plays a small-town judge. The judge's absolute certainty in his own righteousness is undermined when his memory begins to fail. He is involved in a hit-and-run case – and it seems he may have taken the law into his own hands. »
He may have played a part in ushering in the blockbuster age, but George Lucas was still a part of the same filmmaking generation and movement—the famous New Hollywood period from the late '60s to the early '80s—as contemporaries like Mike Nichols, William Friedkin, and his buddies Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola. The “Apocalypse Now” director played an important role in Lucas’ early career, whether by helping finance “American Graffiti” and siding with him against the studio over the final cut or by simply allowing him to hang out on Coppola’s set and shoot a short documentary. In 1968, Coppola was gearing up to shoot his fourth feature-length film when Lucas convinced him to allow the future “Star Wars” filmmaker to shoot an unobtrusive, cinema-verite documentary about the making of “The Rain People.” The documentary (via Open Culture), titled “Filmmaker,” was produced for $12,000, and follows Coppola as he deals with. »

The movie will be screened at the private theater at the massive hilltop estate — the inspiration for Xanadu in “Citizen Kane” — for about 50 people. Tickets will cost $1,000 each and proceeds will benefit the festival and The Friends of Hearst Castle preservation group.
The Hearst family became a part of the festival in 2012 when William Randolph Hearst’s grandson Steven Hearst agreed to a first-ever screening of “Citizen Kane” at the Hearst Castle visitor center, two miles away from Hearst Castle — even though his grandfather had tried unsuccessfully to suppress the 1941 film. Steven Hearst had said then that enough time has passed for the family to acknowledge the artistic achievement of the film, while attempting to set the record straight about Hearst.

It takes more than a village to make an award-worthy performance--it takes a million tiny moments that together create a film or TV show more magical than its parts. This week, ETonline talks with Golden Globe nominees about all the big and small ways stars have to align for a great idea to make it to the screen.
For his most recent role as the stern Joseph Palmer in The Judge, veteran actor Robert Duvall was honored with the Icon Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Backstage, he spoke to ETonline about his Hollywood legacy -- which spans a half century -- and how his new movie compares to Apocalypse Now, for which he won his first Golden Globe.

Robert Redford movies: TCM shows 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' 'The Sting' They don't make movie stars like they used to, back in the days of Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Harry Cohn. That's what nostalgists have been bitching about for the last four or five decades; never mind the fact that movie stars have remained as big as ever despite the demise of the old studio system and the spectacular rise of television more than sixty years ago. This month of January 2015, Turner Classic Movies will be honoring one such post-studio era superstar: Robert Redford. Beginning this Monday evening, January 6, TCM will be presenting 15 Robert Redford movies. Tonight's entries include Redford's two biggest blockbusters, both directed by George Roy Hill and co-starring Paul Newman: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which turned Redford, already in his early 30s, into a major film star to rival Rudolph Valentino, »

Well, almost as successful as the last one, this eighth addition finished with two films completely unguessed and one film that was eventually figured out, but only after I gave a hint on Twitter. To be honest, I'm a little surprised no one figured out numbers 12 and 14, though I wasn't the least bit surprised it took a hint for anyone to guess number four, that was a tough one even I debated including, but thought it would be fun to see if anyone could figure it out. Number one clearly kept some people guessing as it appears if you put a spider in any screen capture Enemy will be everyone's first guess... says something about the effective nature of that film ehc That said, here are the answers to this latest graphic.

Clint Eastwood is behind the lens of another Oscar contender: American Sniper. Led by Bradley Cooper, the film adapts the biography of Chris Kyle, a celebrated Navy Seal Sniper who struggles to reconcile his family life with his four tours in Iraq. Already a critical hit, the film, which is in limited release now and out everywhere Jan. 16, is a shining trophy on Eastwood’s stacked career mantle. Suffice it to say, that mantle is worth perusing.
Not only is the 84-year-old living legend still acting and directing, he also manages to find time to lend a voice to projects by his peers. For a quick refresher on all-things Eastwood, check out his movies streaming on Netflix.

A classic, and one of the films that cemented Eastwood’s reputation as an American badass. The film follows Frank Morris (Eastwood), a convict transferred to the maximum security prison »

30. Apollo 13 (1995)
Lost to: Braveheart
In 1995, director Ron Howard brought a true life story of hope in the face of peril and started sweeping up awards. He won the Directors Guild Award. He won the Producers Guild Award. He won the Screen Actors Guild Ensemble Award. He lost the Golden Globe Drama to “Sense and Sensibility,” though he was nominated. Nothing could beat “Apollo 13.” Oscar night came and the Academy decided to hand the award to Mel Gibson’s historical epic about William Wallace, whose only precursor award was a surprise directing win at the Golden Globes. I’m not saying “Apollo 13″ is a greater film than “Braveheart.” It’s just proof that even the mighty may fall if a charismatic actor/director is at the helm.
