Leonardo DiCaprio’s Finest Roles

18 August 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This year marks over 25 years since Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio made his acting debut. As a fresh faced, ambitious teen, DiCaprio appeared in several family soap operas in the early 1990s that had decent runs, including Parenthood and Growing Pains. A quarter of a century later and two Golden Globe wins for Best Actor (The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014 and The Aviator in 2005), DiCaprio has arguably become one of the most recognizable faces in the world, albeit sadly without that coveted Oscar win. Sealing his fate as a global heartthrob in age-old romantic drama Romeo + Juliet in 1996, then following it up next year with the blockbuster Titanic, Leo subsequently shot to stardom and worked with some of cinema’s finest directors, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino. Although a hard list to make given his impressive CV, here we take a look back some of his most remarkable roles. »

Joanna Kerns on Becoming a Director: ‘It’s Been a Hard Climb’

8 June 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s been 30 years since the debut of “Growing Pains,” which anointed Joanna Kerns as the sitcom mom for a new generation. These days, her career is thriving for her work on the other side of the camera, as a director on “Jane the Virgin,” among other hourlongs.

What do you enjoy most about directing?

I think there isn’t a day that I go on the set that I don’t learn something new. Sometimes you’re getting your scripts late and you’re frantically trying to figure out how you’re going to shoot them in the time you have. It’s a little bit like being on the top of a building and jumping off, but when you land, you’re Ok.

Why did you make the switch from acting?

When I was acting, I was always fascinated by the difference in the quality of work by what director I had. »

Jeonju’s growing cinema project

5 May 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

South Korean festival grows focus on alternative, experimental and “adventurous” cinema.

Held in a sunny Southern city with traditional houses and some of the hands-down most delicious food you’ll find in Korea, the Jeonju International Film Festival (Jiff) is celebrating its 16th edition with multiple sold out cinemas.

The fest has always been focused on supporting and promoting alternative, experimental and “adventurous” cinema. From its inception, Jiff put its money where its mouth is - producing a different triptych of digital films every year. Directors such as Jia Zhang-ke, Pedro Costa, Bong Joon Ho, Eric Khoo, Claire Denis and Bahman Ghobadi have participated.

Last year, Jiff went from producing three shorts annually to three features with an aim to help get them more festival play and theatrical releases.

“We wanted to heighten out rate of involvement and let the directors unfold their creativity as much as they wanted,” said Jiff programmer »

Maniac Cop actor Robert Z'Dar dies, aged 64

1 April 2015 3:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Actor Robert Z'Dar has died at the age of 64.

The cult star passed away from a cardiac arrest on Monday (April 30) in Florida, his long-time manager Jim Decker told local media.

Z'Dar was known for his tall presence and prominent jaw, which was a result of a genetic condition called cherubism.

He starred in over 120 films including the Maniac Cop trilogy, where he played a former NYPD officer on a killing spree.

The actor also played a prisoner in Tango & Cash, starring Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone.

Z'Dar worked as a police officer for a short period before becoming an actor, soon portraying various villains in the 1980s and 1990s.

His other projects included Soultaker, The Final Sanction and the TV shows Growing Pains and The Flash. »

Actor Robert Z’Dar Dead at 64

31 March 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hollywood is just a trash bin full of chiseled bone structure. Aaron Eckardt, Ben Affleck, and of course Michael Douglas and his dad Kirk are all known for their strong jawlines. But cult actor Robert Z’Dar made those guys look like pikers with his mammoth chin, which he exploited to perfection with a string of nasty villain roles that were B-movie heaven. A Chicago native, Z’Dar is probably best know for starring as Matt Cordell in a trio of Maniac Cop films between 1988 and 1993, but his imposing mug graced over 121 films over the past 30 years.

Those credits include such gems as Hellhole, Beastmaster 2, Tango And Cash (he played “Face”), and the amazing Samurai Cop (he was filming the belated sequel to that one when he died). Z’Dar was a staple of the horror convention circuit and was a genuinely nice guy. He was apparently attending one of »
