Why Movie-Lover Anthony Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown' Is So Good

31 May 2015 11:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If I could turn into another person it would be Anthony Bourdain. Why? He's got the life I envy. The television essayist travels the world to exotic locations for CNN Doc series "Parts Unknown," which is now into Season Five. Using local foodies as guides to each new country, Bourdain eats yummy mouth-watering cuisine as he grills the locals on their culture and often drinks to excess, while his team of four--two producers and two cameramen--shoot reportage, on the street in Shanghai, Madagascar and Myanmar, inside restaurants and kitchens in India, Thailand and Spain, on rural farms in Colombia and Paraguay, under water off the coast of Sicily, in S & M parlors in Tokyo. They are often inspired by movies they've seen, from "Apocalypse Now" to "In the Mood for Love." It's not all fun and games. Fans of the show will remember the infamous Sicily episode, when Bourdain was »

'Grace of Monaco' screenwriter dismantles the film in live Tweet session

28 May 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You might remember "Grace of Monaco." A Grace Kelly biopic directed by Olivier Dahan ("La Vie en Rose") with Nicole Kidman in the lead and Tim Roth as her Prince Rainier, the film was picked up for distribution by The Weinstein Company and landed an opening night slot at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It seemed like a perfect combination of material and talent, and a possible awards player. But it ended up panned on the Croisette and destined for a premiere on the Lifetime television channel here in the Us. Earlier this week, the film's screenwriter, Arash Amel, took to Twitter to live-Tweet the Lifetime airing and, well, he had a lot to say. "The purpose of this live Tweet is to correct the record, an explanation, an apology and most of all a bit of lighthearted fun," he wrote, tagging each of his Tweets with the #GOMFacts hashtag. If »

Wamg Interview: Elizabeth Shepherd – Co-starred with Vincent Price in Tomb Of Ligeia

27 May 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

British actress Elizabeth Shepherd is best known for her dual performance as the strong-willed Lady Rowena and the ghostly Lady Ligeia opposite Vincent Price in director Roger Corman’s The Tomb Of Ligeia in 1965. Ms Shepherd has enjoyed a long career in movies and in British television since 1959 and her most recent big screen role was as Hillary Swank’s mother-in-law in the 2008 Amelia Earhart biography Amelia. However, it’s the stage is where she most loves to perform and that’s where we caught up with her for this interview as she was preparing for her role in an upcoming production of the play Pygmalion in Houston. We had invited Ms Shepherd to be a guest of honor at Vincentennial, the Vincent Price 100th Birthday Celebration in May of 2011 here in Price’s hometown of St. Louis, but she had committed to the play and was unable to accept our invitation. »

Second Opinion – Tomorrowland (2015)

24 May 2015 1:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tomorrowland, 2015.

Directed by Brad Bird.

Starring George Clooney, Britt RobertsonThomas RobinsonRaffey Cassidy and Hugh Laurie.

Synopsis:

Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

The world’s ending, it’s all our fault and Disney want you to know about it, but first let’s have a fun time at the cinema, buy the merchandise and check out the theme park before the cities crumble. It’s this hypocrisy which pulls director Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland in one direction only to push it into another; resulting in a film which, whilst being fun at times, never feels anywhere as genuine as it needs to be.

I appreciate and welcome a massive budget family movie which isn’t based »

Exclusive Trailer For Gael García Bernal's The Burning

19 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Burning is a thriller that subverts the old maxim about revenge being a dish best served cold. Judging by this new poster and trailer, it'll be flame-grilled and served using a big old machete in the new Gael García Bernal vengeance movie.brightcove.createExperiences();Bernal plays Kai, a near-mythical figure who emerges from the Argentinean rainforest looking to snatch back the grieving Vania (Elysium's Alice Braga) from the mercenaries who have kidnapped her. They’ve already killed her dad, a poor farmer, and now they’ve come for her. But while Kai still has breath and a bloody great cleaver, they’ll be given some good reasons to think again.This one looks like combining the political edge of South America’s Cinema Novo with a classic Western yarn, lit up with the trippy visuals of an Apocalypse Now. We may never see Bernal’s Zorro, so this could »

George Lucas: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Star Wars' Guru

14 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

George Lucas didn't just create the "Star Wars" universe. The filmmaker, who turns 71 on May 14, pretty much created the cinematic universe we live in now, the ones whose cornerstones include the Thx sound system at your multiplex, the Pixar movies that have dominated animation for the past 20 years, and the Industrial Light & Magic special-effects house, whose aesthetic has ruled the Hollywood blockbuster for nearly four decades. He's the pioneer of the effects-driven action spectacle and the conversion from celluloid to digital, the two trends that, for better and worse, have defined Hollywood's output for nearly 20 years.

As ubiquitous as Lucas and his creations loom in our cinematic dreamscapes, there's still a lot that most people don't know about him, from how he got his start to the famous folks who mentored him or were mentored by him, from the size of his fortune to what he plans to do now »

Wooden Crosses review – Philip French on Raymond Bernard’s first world war classic

7 May 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(Raymond Bernard, 1932; Eureka!, PG)

It took film-makers years to bring the Vietnam war into focus and produce movies like The Deer Hunter and Apocalypse Now. Similarly, half a century earlier, nearly a decade elapsed after the first world war before Us and European directors felt capable of tackling the subject. The cycle began with a great film of the silent era, King Vidor’s The Big Parade (1925), and continued into the sound era with Lewis Milestone’s celebrated anti-war All Quiet on the Western Front (1930).

Less sentimental than All Quiet, and surprisingly little known outside France, Les Croix de bois (Wooden Crosses), now revived in a restored centennial version, is one of the most important war movies. Made in 1932 by Raymond Bernard between his two most famous pictures (the silent costume drama The Chess Player and his classic five-hour version of Les Misérables), Wooden Crosses was based on an autobiographical »

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, »

Spike Lee On Digital Viewing Of Movies: ‘It’s Heartbreaking’

30 April 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spike Lee would rather watch a movie in a big theater than on a mobile-phone screen.

“I know I’m a dinosaur,” Lee said while holding forth at Variety’s Entertainment and Technology conference in New York, but “there’s something still for me actually being in a movie theater” and seeing a film with a group of people.

The director said he was taken aback by the notion that some people might watch “West Side Story,” “Star Wars” or “Apocalypse Now” on a smartphone screen.

“I know it’s not a popular view, but as a filmmaker — we kill ourselves with editing. With lighting. With sound,” he said, adding: “It’s heartbreaking.”

Lee appeared with Marc Ecko, the media and fashion entrepreneur. Lee recently agreed to join Ecko’s Complex media and marketing business, becoming a board adviser for video products and branded content. Lee is no stranger to the world of advertising, »

My favourite Cannes winner: Apocalypse Now

30 April 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series in which writers choose their favourite Palme d’Or victor,

Alex Hess views Francis Ford Coppola’s triumph at the 1979 festival as vindication of the film-maker’s own journey into the heart of darkness

You might think that Apocalypse Now finishes in Cambodia, but in fact it’s in Cannes that the film’s real story comes to an end. While the Nung river was the site of Colonel Kurtz’s ruin, it was in the French Riviera that Francis Ford Coppola found his redemption.

After his sanity, pride and career were driven to the brink of oblivion during filming, Coppola’s Palme d’Or triumph at the festival in 1979 was, at long last, proof that it had been worth all the hassle. The film, which had begun shooting three years previously, had been dubbed Apocalypse When? by studio suits who were doubtful it would ever see the light of day, »

Name Composers Not Above Getting the Boot

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a brief stir in January when composer Harry Gregson-Williams publicly expressed, via Facebook, his surprise at hearing music he didn’t recognize at the premiere of Michael Mann’s thriller “Blackhat” — and at not hearing a lot of score he did write.

The composer says his Facebook post has been blown out of proportion, but admits it was disappointing to see music he toiled over dropped (or replaced) in the final cut. But, he stresses, that’s just part of the game.

“You win some, you lose some,” he says, relaying his early mentor Hans Zimmer’s comment that you haven’t made it as a film composer until you’ve had a score rejected.

Gregson-Williams is simply the latest in a long line of composers who’ve watched scores tossed out and replaced whole-cloth, partially substituted by pre-existing tracks, or mangled beyond recognition. Mann is notorious for »

Monsters: Dark Continent review

29 April 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Giant alien creatures spread to the Middle East in the sequel Monsters: Dark Continent. Here's Ryan's review...

Giant bioluminescent space creatures dominated the horizon but not the plot in Gareth Edwards’ breakthrough film, Monsters. Shot run-and-gun style by Edwards and a tiny crew, Monsters was an unusual blend of road-trip drama with light touches of sci-fi; its focus was the growing friendship between a photograph journalist (Scoot McNairy) and his boss's daughter (Whitney Able) travelling across a Central America ravaged not so much by the title’s Lovecraftian kaiju but by a military intent on keeping them well away from American soil.

Monsters’ success saw Edwards move to Hollywood, where he’s so far headlined the daddy of all kaiju movies, Godzilla, and now set to head up another pop culture giant - the Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One. This left production company Vertigo with a potential franchise on its hands, »

Tom Green interview: Monsters: Dark Continent and Misfits

29 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Monsters: Dark Continent out in UK cinemas this weekend, director Tom Green talks to us about filming in the desert, Misfits and more.

In 2010, British director Gareth Edwards made a huge splash with his feature debut Monsters, a road trip drama with giant monsters stalking around in the background. It was an atmospheric movie that made ingenious use of its low budget; Monsters' success led to Edwards departing for Hollywood, where coveted franchises like Godzilla and Star Wars awaited.

Five years later, and director Tom Green brings us Monsters: Dark Continent, an entirely new story set in the same world as the first movie. A decade after a Nasa probe crashed in Mexico, bringing the giant monsters to Earth, their lumbering threat has spread to the Middle East. The Us Airforce is dispatched to bomb the creatures to prevent their spread, while on the ground, American troops try »
