Reels on Reels: Is Hollywood Taking Over the Slot Machine Market?

29 July 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2012: a British man, playing an online slot machine for 30p on his laptop, is suddenly greeted by the sight of Christian Bale’s Batman and Heath Ledger’s Joker taking over his screen. Not crude 8-bit interpretations, but full HD actual animation from the Chris Nolan blockbuster – complete with voiceovers.

The player is urged to “take a side” and spin a virtual Wheel of Fortune. The prize at stake: almost £6 million.

The wheel spins, accompanied by the Joker’s maniacal “all it needs is a little push”, and the wheel comes to a random stop on the Mega Jackpot symbol. Hans Zimmer’s score has never seemed so dramatic. The jackpot is won and the player – known only as ‘John’ – goes away a multi-millionaire.

No, not a bizarre DVD extra on The Dark Knight Blu-Ray but a bonus round in Microgaming’s The Dark Knight online slot.

The prize won that day? »

Al Pacino: ‘What’s the point of quitting?’

23 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The star of The Godfather and Scarface, who now supplements his income selling seats on his private jet and doing meet and greets, talks about marriage, ageing and death – and why, with his new film Manglehorn out in August, he has no intention of giving up acting

In 2011, Al Pacino roasted himself. In the Adam Sandler comedy Jack & Jill, he falls for the twin sister of a Los Angeles advertising executive (Sandler), the buxom, boorish Bronxite Jill (also Sandler). Pacino plays himself as a sell-out and a creep, mocking the roles that made him famous by rapping for Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (“You want creamy goodness? I’m your friend. Say hello to my chocolate blend”), carelessly allowing his Oscar to be smashed while trying to impress Jill during an impromptu game of stickball. He is befuddled, paranoid, pretentious and hopeless. He’s confused by La and adrift within his own celebrity. »

After 25 years, ‘The Krays’ still holds up

21 July 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Krays

Written by Philip Ridley

Directed by Peter Medak

UK, 1990

Gangster movies have been entertaining audiences since the inception of cinema. A well-constructed gangster film can attract respectable actors, reap critical praise, and accrue the life-long love of fans in a way that few other genres can. Mean Streets, Infernal Affairs, and Goodfellas are all classic films that continue to resonate with audiences long after their theatrical runs. While most favorite gangster movie conversations include the usual round up of The Godfather, Scarface and The Departed, there is a little known British film that warrants a place in the conversation. Back in 1990, director Peter Medak’s biographical crime/drama film The Krays, flew under the radar of everyone but the most hardcore gangster-flick nerds. With the upcoming film Legend (featuring Tom Hardy in the role of both Kray twins) just on the horizon, it seemed like an appropriate time »

Watch: 20-Minute Video Essay Explores The Pool Hall Sequence From Brian De Palma's 'Carlito's Way'

23 June 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Brian De Palma’s overtly stylistic method of filmmaking may have won him fans such as Quentin Tarantino, but there’s a sinking feeling when you look over his career that he’s never quite received the respect he deserves. De Palma already had several films under his belt by the time the “movie brats” came of age in the 1970s. He worked with Robert De Niro years before Scorsese and Coppola ever got their hands on the actor. He’s amassed a filmography that features classics such as “Carrie,” “Scarface,” “The Untouchables,” and he has three other films in the Criterion Collection. And yet, he’s also the guy who somehow wound up with zero Oscar nods and six Razzie nominations. What’s that all about? No matter how you look at De Palma’s career, there’s no denying he can be a remarkable craftsman. Video essayist Julian Palmer »

Interview: Director David Gordon Green on Manglehorn

david j. moore chats with Manglehorn director David Gordon Green

One of the most interesting filmmakers working today, David Gordon Green has worked up an impressive list of films to his credit. He started with the true indie films George Washington (2000), All the Real Girls (2003), and Undertow (2004), and moved into studio-driven films like Pineapple Express (2008), Your Highness (2011), and The Sitter (2011), and he has segued back to indie fare like Prince Avalanche (2013), Joe (2013), and now with his latest, Manglehorn, starring Al Pacino and Holly Hunter. Pacino stars in a challenging role as a lonely locksmith, stuck in a memory of a past love, and when he meets a lovely bank teller (played by Hunter), his life veers in a different direction. Set in and around Austin, Texas, the film is a highly unusual drama from a filmmaker at the peak of his powers. (Manglehorn is currently in theaters throughout the U. »

The Summer Culture Calendar: 90 Things to Watch, Hear, Read, and Do

14 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

June 6/15: If you've still got any cinematic energy left to spare after watching Jurassic World (seen above) on June 12, then check out Martin Scorsese's huge collection of movie posters, on display as part of “Scorsese Collects” at MoMA. If the posters belonged to anyone else, it might be a little bit — to quote GoodFellas — shine-boxy, like most hoards of pop-culture memorabilia. But, for example, that lobby card of Howard Hawks’s pre-Pacino Scarface? It’s owned by Martin Scorsese! 6/16: Remember the glorious musical Zeitgeist of 2009? When Nate Ruess and Jack Antonoff got together and released fun.’s first album, Aim and Ignite? And when a Brit producer named Ross (stage name: the way-more-superhero­esque “Hudson Mohawke”) put out his first album, Butter? Six years on, Ruess drops Grand Romantic, his first solo album, and Mohawke gets around to releasing his sophomore effort, Lantern.6/17: If 2009 seems like yesterday, »

Cliff Martinez' warning: 'The Knick' season 2 will be 'darker,' but how?

5 June 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cliff Martinez is hard at work on the score for "The Knick" season 2 for Steven Soderbergh, is mulling music for Nicolas Winding-Refn's "The Neon Demon" and has at least seen the script for Harmony Korine's next "The Trap," which is perhaps his next firm gig. Those names have been, erm, instrumental to Martinez' rise as an in-demand composer (though for some reason he just can't seem to hold down those outside, one-off commercial projects, dang it). Weaving organic, odd instruments in with electronic sources, the musician/writer has found natural creative companions in equally odd, forward-thinking and intuitive directors. Martinez has been in these pages before, after massaging a cold, macabre and grand score out of bloodlusty "Only God Forgives." His electronic soundtrack for Cinemax period drama "The Knick" is so gorgeous, the tracks stand boldly on their own. Below is an abridged version of my interview with Martinez, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Shootouts

2 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Shootouts, unlike any other type of action scenes, put death in the forefront of the audience’s mind. Whereas a car chase draws the attention onto the race, or a fight scene onto the pursuit of victory, shootouts test the mortality of our protagonists and anti-heroes. It’s more than just a hail of bullets that matters on screen, it’s who those bullets are clipping down or propping up. Legends can be made in a flurry of lead. The last man standing after the fray isn’t always the best or »

A Most Violent Year DVD Review

17 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: J.C. Chandor

Starring: Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola, Albert Brooks, Elyes Gabel

Cert: 15

Running Time: 120 mins

Features: Commentary with J.C. Chandor, Neal Dodson & Anna Gerb. Featurettes, Behind The Violence (Making Of), The Contagious Nature Of Violence (Director Interview), Conversations With Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain, Trailers/TV Spots, Deleted Scenes, Behind The Scenes Photos

Imagine if Sidney Lumet had directed The Long Good Friday. That instead of a blood-soaked gangster thriller about a man trying to better himself with guns and fists you had something more thoughtful, yet just as sinister. Writer/director J.C. Chandor’s third film takes the backdrop of New York at the outset of 1981 – the notorious year of the title – and uses it as context for the engrossing story of an entrepreneur trying to operate the cleanest way possible in the murkiest of environments.

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

Acteurism: Joel McCrea in "Barbary Coast"

27 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In 1935 director Howard Hawks had a reputation for directing fast action films that were shot like screwball comedies. Before the Hays code, he directed Paul Muni as an Al Capone persona for the “most violent picture” of the time, Scarface (1932). Films about violent sports and vehicles and the men in control of them also got the Hawks treatment with The Dawn Patrol (1930), The Crowd Roars (1932), and The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933). The tagline for that last one’s poster reads: “Girls! There’S A New Passion In Your Life!” Hawks’ strengths lie in that spectacle of unfettered action for the boys, star power for the girls. His marketing image had stepped out of genre pictures before with more straightforward dramas Tiger Shark (1932)and Today We Live (1933). In Twentieth Century (1934), Hawks even ventured into full screwball territory (I’d wager that the Code taking away his violent sensibilities may have something to do with this, »

Shia Labeouf Explains How His Sia Video Is Like Scarface

18 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Earlier this week, the 14th annual Tribeca Film Festival welcomed none other than noted performance artist and rattail enthusiast Shia Labeouf, executive producer for Alma Har'el's new documentary Love True. Labeouf previously worked with Ha'rel on Sigur Rós's video for the song "Fjögur pianó," for which he was completely nude. More recently, he appeared as a mostly-naked, cage-fighting character in Sia's video for "Elastic Heart" — a performance that garnered a hefty amount of controversy. At a Q&A for Love True, Labeouf talked about the differences between his work with Sia and Ha'rel:i think the Sia one is more about aesthetics. It's performance gymnastics, the big crying scene, dance moves. It's cool but it's like Scarface, Al Pacino acting. Nothing against him, but there's a big difference between something that's presentational and representational. I think even Pacino would agree that his work is representational, whereas somebody like Joaquin Phoenix »

Box-Office Alternatives: Passion

16 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Child 44 (2015) opens Friday and features one of the darkest plots of any Spring release opening wide in recent memory. Focusing on a string of unsolved child murders in soviet Russia, the grim mystery features the always-watchable Noomi Rapace as the film's female lead.

Since hitting it big with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), Rapace has deservedly enjoyed a steady career in a variety of complex film roles. It's never anything but a pleasure seeing an actress of Rapace's talent at work, yet I can't help but notice that in so many of her projects, including Child 44, she is usually second fiddle to her male co-stars.

One of the few exceptions is Rapace's work alongside Rachel McAdams in Brian De Palma's sexually charged thriller, Passion (2012). After advertising executive Christine (McAdams) takes credit for an idea from her associate Isabel (Rapace), a personal and professional tug of war between the two women begins, »

The rise and fall of Hemdale

2 April 2015 3:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hemdale became one of the largest indie studios of the 80s with films like The Terminator and Platoon. Ryan charts its turbulent history...

When Platoon won four Oscars in 1987, it marked not only a new chapter in Oliver Stone's career as a filmmaker, but also the end of a decade-long battle. Since the 1970s, Stone had been struggling to make his harrowing account of the horrors he'd seen firsthand as a soldier in the Vietnam conflict, but was famously turned down by every major studio in Hollywood.

Platoon, and Stone, finally found sanctuary at a small independent studio with a grand-sounding name: the Hemdale Film Corporation. It was Hemdale, and its co-founder John Daly, that had taken a chance on Stone, and when Platoon came out in 1986, the gamble proved to be a shrewd one: its $6m investment was covered by the first month's ticket sales, and the film »
