Ariana Grande to appear on Andrea Bocelli's new album

21 August 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Ariana Grande is to feature on Andrea Bocelli's new album. The 22-year-old pop star and the 56-year-old Italian have teamed up for the emotion-filled duet 'Once Upon a Time in America/Malena', with the song set to feature on Bocelli's new album 'Cinema', Entertainment Tonight reports. The eagerly-awaited new record is inspired by the greatest movie songs and has been recorded in five different languages - Italian, French, Spanish, English and Sicilian. Bocelli has revealed 'Cinema' is a dream he's ''harboured for decades''. He explained: ''If films are a 'dream factory,' the music that supports them embraces these dreams and heightens all of the magic and emotional vitality. ''My invitation, my token is for these immortal 'classics' to merge with the experiences, with the most precious memories, with the emotions of every listener, to become the inimitable soundtrack to their life.''

Blu-ray Review – Videodrome (1983)

17 August 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Videodrome, 1983.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring James Woods, Deborah Harry, Sonja Smits, Les Carlson, Peter Dvorsky and Jack Creley.

Synopsis:

A cable TV channel owner wants to broadcast ‘Videodrome’, the most extreme programme on the network, but discovers that the show is front for a sinister global conspiracy.

Videodrome was the right film at the right time for director David Cronenberg (The Brood/Rabid). Cronenberg’s previous two movies – 1979’s The Brood and 1981’s Scanners – had seen the director rise above the grimy aesthetic of his early works and the quality of his productions get smoother but still retain his core themes of body horror, mutation and disease, and with the burgeoning home video market bringing all sorts of fears about moral corruption into the media headlines, Cronenberg was at the right place in his career to make a statement in his own unique way.

Dismal 'Four': Worst domestic opening weekend of big budget superhero movie in recent memory?

7 August 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Fantastic Four' 2015 with Miles Teller, Kate Mara, The Thing (Jamie Bell) and Michael B. Jordan. 'Fantastic Four' 2015 box office: A costly domestic flop in the making? Fantastic Four 2015, a 20th Century Fox release “in association with Marvel Entertainment,” is about to become the biggest big-budget superhero(es) dud at the domestic office since at least The Green Hornet (not to be confused with the equally underwhelming Green Lantern) four years ago. Directed by Josh Trank, who dissed the film's final edit on Twitter (see more details below), Fantastic Four stars Kate Mara (Sue Storm / The Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm / The Human Torch), and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm / The Thing). A while back, Fantastic Four became the subject of ardent arguments because of Michael B. Jordan's ethnicity: unlike the Fruitvale Station actor, the comic books' Johnny Storm is white. »

The Grandmaster director Wong Kar Wai, as artistic director of China: Through The Looking Glass, magically merges film with fashion and the museum's collection. Michelangelo Antonioni's Chung Kuo - Cina, Jiang Wen's In the Heat Of The Sun, Yonggang Wu's The Goddess, Zhang Yimou's Hero, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution, Hou Hsiao-Hsien's Flowers Of Shanghai, D.W. Griffith's Broken Blossoms, Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In America, Richard Quine's The World Of Suzy Wong, Bernardo Bertolucci's The Last Emperor, Vincente Minnelli's Ziegfeld Follies and Wong's The Hand From Eros, are among the clips selected that tie in beautiful layers of meaning.

Movies This Week: May 8-14, 2015

8 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

This weekend, the Austin Film Society is bringing She's Lost Control back to town. Caitlin caught the film on opening night at SXSW 2014. She reported: "An intense and dark slice of life, the film focuses on a woman who works as a sex surrogate while she finishes a Master's degree in psychology in New York City. Often hard-hitting and true but sometimes a little frustrating, I can't fully call this a "must-see" but I know this movie will definitely stick with me..." It plays tonight and again on Sunday afternoon at the Marchesa.

On Sunday evening, Afs will be presenting the work of two master animators. Don Hertzfeldt's award-winning short World Of Tomorrow is being paired with Cheatin', the most recent feature film from Bill Plympton. Richard Linklater's schedule last week didn't allow him to be in attendance for the Sid & Nancy screening, so another screening has been »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Artie Lange on his inevitable 'Howard Stern' flameout: 'It ended the only way it can end'

20 April 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All due respect to "Mad TV" and "Dirty Work" fans, but for this writer Artie Lange's greatest performance will always be his eight-year run on "The Howard Stern Show." From 2001 to 2009, the gravelly-voiced comedian worked as the King of All Media's brash, no-nonsense, fan-beloved sidekick, a role that brought him his greatest career success ("It was the closest I ever felt to being a rock star") but also brought his personal demons to the fore. His stint on the show came to an abrupt and chilling end in January 2010, when Lange, at that time addicted to heroin, was hospitalized for eight months following a suicide attempt (an episode he has discussed publicly and wrote about in his 2013 memoir "Crash and Burn"). Five years on from his terrifying downward spiral, Lange has rebounded and continues to work, performing standup gigs and making guest appearances on TV shows including "Louie" and Californication. »

Die Falle

(La morte ha fatto l’uovo a.k.a Death Laid an Egg, A Curious Way to Love & Plucked)


1968, dir: Giulio Questi



Jean-Louis Trintignant (The Great Silence) stars as Marco, a wealthy man who runs a high-tech chicken farm (living the dream right there!) with his wife Anna, played by Gina Lollabrigadia (Beat the Devil). When not taking care of business, Marco has a nasty little habit. He likes to murder prostitutes. Yep, a guy who breeds chickens with no bones or heads for a living needs some sort of distraction right? Not only that, but he also has a thing for his lovely young and nubile secretary Gabrielle, played by Ewa Aulin (Death Smiles at Murder). She lives with the married couple in their grandiose estate. Unsurprisingly, Anna is rather suspicious of her husband and his hobbies. Uncertainty in relationships becomes a running theme with pretty much »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well.

54 Bombed in 1998. Now It's Been Resurrected as a Cult Gay Classic.

16 February 2015 8:35 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the summer of 1998, writer-director Mark Christopher’s 54, a clumsy cinematic paean to New York's legendary disco club Studio 54, was released to dismal reviews, a lukewarm box office, and then promptly forgotten — at least by most of us. But just last week a director's cut of the film, which starred Ryan Phillippe, Mike Myers, Salma Hayek, Breckin Meyer, and Neve Campbell, was shown at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival. That's the sort of honor usually afforded classics like Apocalypse Now or Once Upon a Time in America, not a film with a 13 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. So how did this movie wind up getting that honor?When it was released 17 years ago, 54 died quickly, but not exactly of natural causes. The film Christopher originally wrote and shot was a gritty, queer exploration of pre-aids hedonism. However, the studio that released the film, Miramax, then run by »

Algeria’s Lyes Salem: ‘Humanism Distinguishes Us From the God Crazy Folk’

13 January 2015 10:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the first of a short series of articles in Variety’s UniFrance Rendez-vous Dailies on directors and French productions pushing the boundaries of freedom in the Arab world, Variety talks to French-Algerian director Lyes Salem about his second feature, “The Man From Oran,” sold at the UniFrance Rendez-vous by Films Distribution.

Buoyed by the spirit of the Arab spring, best director winner at Abu Dhabi’s New Horizons “The Man From Oran” is one of the most ambitious films to come out of the Arab world in the last 12 months. Playing out like “Once Upon a Time in Algeria,” it follows two friends –Hamid and Djaffar — from Algeria’s uprising against France to their total estrangement three decades later. Hamid becomes a minister after independence; Djaffar, played by Salem, originally a carpenter by trade, morphs into a (at first, reluctant) freedom fighter, then official war hero, a widower — his wife dies, »
