The actor: Since making her film debut in 1969, Jane Seymour has experienced a number of career renaissances and repeatedly managed to reinvent herself as an actor, something that happens all too infrequently in Hollywood. While you can attribute part of her success to her ability to bounce between high drama and lowbrow comedy seemingly without blinking an eye, it’s just as likely because she doesn’t like to lose. With a filmography that includes spies (Live And Let Die), Cylons (Battlestar Galactica), century-spanning romance (Somewhere In Time), frat-boy comedy (Wedding Crashers), and life in a frontier town (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman), Seymour keeps audiences guessing as to where she’s going to turn up next. Currently ...
Those who admire Han’s pithy prose or the sublime poetry of his debut feature “The Continent” may feel he’s punching below his weight here, but the absence of intellectual
On this day in history as it relates to the movies...
1431 Joan of Arc is burned at the stake. If you've never seen The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), one of the best movies of all time containing hugely powerful actressing by Falconetti you must repent. Save your soul and watch it.
1536 King Henry VIII, whose wives all tended to die prematurely (funny how that happens) marries Jane Seymour (not to be confused with the Dr Quinn Medicine Woman & Somewhere in Time actress). 477 years later Oscar Isaac sings about Queen Jane's tragic life in Inside Llewyn Davis's very best scene.
1896 Howard Hawks is born. Makes so many great films but my favorites are: Bringing Up Baby (1938), Red River (1948) and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

From the press release:
A 35th Anniversary Screening of Somewhere In Time (1980)
Tuesday, December 15, at 7:30 Pm at the Royal Theatre
Jane Seymour and the late Christopher Reeve star in Jeannot Szwarc’s heady romantic drama about a contemporary playwright who becomes obsessed with a 1912 photograph of a beautiful stage actress and finds a way to travel back in time to meet her.
The legendary British heavy metal band are getting ready to release their first single in five years and in order to promote their new song, they’ve put together an awesome video game-inspired music video to mark the occasion. Titled “Speed of Light,” the video features Iron Maiden’s zombie mascot Eddie traveling through cyberspace and getting sucked into an arcade machine which then forces him to play through four different gaming genres.
First up is a 2D platformer reminiscent of the arcade classic Donkey Kong (and inspired by the cover artwork for Iron Maiden’s album Killers), in which Eddie has to hack his way through some enemies with a hatchet in order to rescue a red leather-clad damsel-in-distress from the grasp of a hulking brute. Next Eddie travels to the 16 bit era
[Note: This review is of the full Uncut version of Soulmate shown at last years Frightfest Halloween All-Nighter, which is not the version being released on DVD. The BBFC requested cuts to the opening suicide scene due to "imitable technique" and so director Axelle Carolyn excised the entire scene from the home entertainment release - hopefully that scene will be made available online at some point]
Actress Axelle Carolyn first turned her hand to directing with the well-received short The Last Post in 2011, she followed it up with the short The Halloween Kid, which screened as part of the International Short Film Showcase at Film4 Frightfest in August 2012. Soulmate, her feature directorial debut, stars Anna Walton (who previously worked with Carolyn on The Halloween Kid and will be a familiar face in to genre fans, having appeared in Hellboy 2 in 2008 and The Seasoning House in 2012) and sees a woman, Audrey, retreat to a remote country cottage after attempting to commit suicide due to the sudden death of her husband. But once settled in she soon discovers her safe haven is haunted by its previous owner, and this spirit has some startling links to the nearby local community, especially the strange Zellaby family.
