Escapism as Art: Steven Spielberg's 'Duel.'

28 December 2010 1:54 AM, PST | Screen Rush | See recent Screen Rush news »

This post is intended as part of the Spielberg Blogathon hosted by Adam Zanzie and Ryan Kelly, which ends today. My interest in movies began with a specific interest in those made by Steven Spielberg. As a child, the unique fantasies of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (which I wrote about a few years back), "E.T.," and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" spurred my imagination in ways that nothing around me could. (I'm sure many children of the eighties and nineties can relate.) That became the seed from which my greater interests in cinema grew: Moving images showed me… »

Harrison Ford Aims to Kill Off Indiana Jones in Next Film

22 December 2010 3:25 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Veteran Ford really aims to kill off Indy at the end of Indiana Jones and the Eternal Cross of Paradise? Does Doctor Henry really got a sendoff from Harrison or this is another rumor installment? Till we find out if iconic hazardous explorer would leave the whip to be picked up by his son, let us turn to the past for help.

January 3, 2009 The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull finished 2008 as the second most successful movie at the worldwide box office with $ 787 million.

July 4, 2009 Spielberg could begin filming Indiana Jones 5 as early as 2010.

February 5, 2010 Starring role told Empire Magazine that Ford is ready for Indiana Jones 5 (while talking about Extraordinary Measures, Ford’s most recent box office mega flop disaster).

June 11, 2010 Producer Frank Marshall denied the idea that Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) will have a reduced role with Mutt Williams (Shia Labeouf) as the primary hero.

Harrison Ford Reps Deny He Wants Indiana Jones Killed

20 December 2010 3:02 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Being that it’s a slow Christmas week, The Huffington Post reported that, according to Showbizspy, Harrison Ford wanted to kill off his alter-ego Indiana Jones.

“Harrison thinks it would be good for Indy to die and pass on his hat to his son in the next one,” the site quotes an insider as saying.

“[Producer and creator] George [Lucas] especially is resisting the notion but [director] Steven [Spielberg] is considering it. Funnily enough Harrison wanted the same for Han Solo in the final Star Wars but George put an end to it. This time he doesn’t have all the say though.”

Not so fast says Ford’s reps:

“Ford representatives reached out to The Huffington Post to deny reports of Fords’ wish to kill off the Indiana Jones character, calling them false.”

Ford has played Professor Jones 4 times beginning with the 1981 classic Raiders Of The Lost Ark in 1981. The latest one was in 2008′s »

Spielberg was target of Arab League boycott, WikiLeaks shows

20 December 2010 3:47 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Leaked dispatch reveals diplomats from 14 Arab states voted to ban the director's films in response to his donation to Israel

Steven Spielberg was blacklisted by the Arab League's Central Boycott Office after making a $1m (£570,000) donation to Israel during the 2006 conflict in Lebanon.

A Us embassy memo released by WikiLeaks reveals that during a meeting of the group in April 2007, diplomats or representatives from 14 Arab states voted to ban all films and other products related to Spielberg or his Righteous Persons Foundation.

At the confidential Us briefing, the head of the Syrian regional office for the boycott of Israel, Muhammad al-Ajami, said that Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen had agreed to ban all Spielberg's works.

Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia were also present at the meeting and voted in favour of the boycott. The »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

[DVD Review] Scrooged

19 December 2010 12:30 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Like my previous Christmas movie review, (Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale), Scrooged is hella dark. Weirdly obscure for a number of years despite its ready availability on home video and DVD, Richard Donner’s (Lethal Weapon) merging of A Christmas Carol and Tales from the Crypt has personally tugged on my heartstrings since I was a kid. I think I’ve seen it most every Christmas season I can remember.

Bill Murray plays Frank Cross, the youngest executive in the history of television – for a reason. When we meet him, he seems almost irredeemably jaded – he doesn’t trust people, and he only trusts himself to make the most profit-wise executive decisions. When he first hears that his horrific grindhouse-style TV spot for the network’s live Christmas Eve performance of Scrooge has scared an 80-year-old woman to death, he celebrates, and orders a super-intense warning screen be added to the front of it. »

female gazing at: Harrison Ford

17 December 2010 3:29 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I so can’t believe that I haven’t featured Harrison Ford before that I had to go back and check twice. Between Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark, he was one of the great loves of my adolescence. The Indiana Jones movies were on cable last weekend, and I was reminded how totally hot Ford was in those flicks: Yowza! I know I’d remember if I’d seen this one before: I know we’ve been a bit on the outs lately, but he looks pretty good in that Cowboys & Aliens trailer. So call me, babe: all is forgiven. I’m posting pictures like these every weekday, of a man who is attractive and desirable, because I like to look, dammit -- and because the female gaze doesn’t have to be such serious business. (If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, »

Empire Building: The Making of The Empire Strikes Back

17 December 2010 2:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the recent passing of director Irvin Kershner, Trevor Hogg explores the development of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back...

“For many fans and cinephiles, Empire is the best of the Star Wars movies, dark and enigmatic – the film noir of the saga,” writes author J.W. Rinzler in the introduction of his latest effort The Making of The Empire Strikes Back – a detailed exploration into the production of the science fiction-fantasy film; together with The Godfather: Part II it is considered to be the gold standard for movie sequels. However, the critical and box office success of the acclaimed second installment, which established American filmmaker George Lucas as an independent studio mogul and caused him to rebuild his special effects company Industrial Light & Magic, was far from being a forgone conclusion. “Many Ilm veterans cite it as the toughest film of their careers,” observed Rinzler of »

Best Special/Collector's/Ultimate Edition Releases

16 December 2010 10:09 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

There are some things in life that you absolutely need to survive; food, shelter, and fire could be counted among them. There are also things that seem to mock the very idea of survivalist necessity, and Special Edition DVDs fall squarely into that category. As Christmas comes but once a year (and a few select, rare people even have birthdays), there’s only so much time that can really be devoted to even thinking about laying down the money to buy one of these things, but this is one of them. In alphabetical order, the following things should probably be considered if you’re buying something for anyone who is of the opinion that a movie is definitely not over once the final credits finish.

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale Review

9 December 2010 8:20 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

A twisted, foreboding take on the mythical Father Christmas, Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is a treat, unwrapped slowly at first, then furiously to reveal a fresh Yuletide fable for adults.

On the frozen border of Russia and Finland, an American drilling team burrows deep into the Korvantunturi Mountains.  They are lead by an eager Fedora-wearing gentleman (Per Christian Ellefsen) — a subtle homage to the greedy villain of Raiders of the Lost Ark — who stands at the precipice and declares the peak “the biggest burial mound in the world.”

Nestled in the heart of the mountain, like some Lovecraftian demon, is Santa Claus himself, so the legend goes.  But this isn’t the same commercial icon trotted out for adorable mall appearances and household holiday adornments.  Nor is he the “jolly old elf” of whimsical children’s fantasies.  Instead, Santa is an ancient, terrifying myth, mentioned only in whispers »

Rare Exports Review

4 December 2010 6:19 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale...what can I say...? Every so often there are films that come around that are so strange, peculiar and altogether original that they have you thinking about them for days afterward. That's definitely a good thing, as the usual Hollywood whiz-bang type flicks can get tiresome eventually. But in some cases, there are films that are so odd, you just don't know what to think. The Finnish film Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is one of the latter.  Rare Exports starts out with a Raiders Of The Lost Ark-style expedition in the Korvatunturi Mountains in Finland, where a group of diggers discover a massive, icy tomb which holds one of the biggest secrets in the history of man. Watching over the diggers is Pietari, a little boy living locally with his father. Pietari discovers what the mysterious group is actually digging for, »

Supernatural 6.10 "Caged Heat" Review

3 December 2010 8:51 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Wow. Just…wow. Tonight’s episode of Supernatural was clearly the best episode of the season. While one might say “that’s kind of easy considering the episodes of season 6”, I honestly think we should be more fair than that. I believe the episodes have gotten better as the season has progressed. I really liked “Family Matters”, “Live Free or Twi-hard” and especially “Clap Your Hands If You Believe”.

And yet, this episode was incredibly fast-paced, tense, dirty, funny and moved the story forward in a way that not a lot of episodes this season have. In many respects, it brought forward a lot of the old elements of Supernatural from past seasons that we know and love. But enough introductory comments, let’s get to the story.

We open with Crowley torturing…himself. Or, rather, a shapeshifter who looks like him. He »

After Harry -- What 'Potter' Kids Should Do Next

1 December 2010 5:42 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Now that the "Harry Potter" saga is coming to a conclusion, what should be the young cast do next? I’m sure they all have their pick of roles, but the problem is picking the right one. Having played some of the most popular characters in history for the better part of a decade, breaking out of those iconic roles can be a challenge.  I subscribe to the "Star Wars"/"Raiders of the Lost Ark" theory -- you follow one big, iconic, and genre friendly role with another. "Indiana Jones" allowed Harrison Ford to »

Johnny Depp's Edward Scissorhands costume and Brandon Routh's Superman Returns outfit are set to sit under someone's Christmas tree this year - the two items are among the highlights to be auctioned off at a Hollywood auction in December.

The two memorabilia must-haves will go under the hammer at a Profiles in History sale on 17 and 18 December.

But the high-priced item at the auction is expected to be the original movie poster from 1933 movie The Invisible Man, which is expected to fetch up to $300,000 (£200,000).

Also up for grabs: Harrison Ford's heavily annotated Raiders of the Lost Ark script, James Cagney's tap dancing shoes and Bela Lugosi's Ygor costume from Son of Frankenstein. »
