With Year-End Kudos, Critics Can Widen Oscar’s Playing Field

18 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2011, the New York Film Critics Circle had seemingly had enough of lagging behind other groups in the year-end superlatives game. That year, the org surprisingly set a Nov. 29 date for voting, leaping ahead of the New York-based National Board of Review — a compendium of film enthusiasts, filmmakers and academics that dates back to 1909 — and far out in front of their west coast counterparts, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. And that’s where they’ve remained ever since, ahead of the pack, first to pass judgment on the year in cinema.

After “The Artist” won the Nyfcc prize in 2011, a mild case of “shiny new object” syndrome took hold as “Zero Dark Thirty” and “American Hustle” (among the last films to screen in 2012 and 2013) won the group’s top prize in their respective years. In 2014, both the New York and Los Angeles critics agreed that “Boyhood” was tops, one »

19 November 2015 9:05 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s holiday gift book time, and our list of must-reads includes weighty coffee table books on two iconic film franchises, some video store nostalgia, the mysteries of David Lynch, a bit of pre-Star Wars: The Force Awakens reading, and the brilliance of Terry Gilliam. Check out the recommendations below and see more here.

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History by Michael Klastorin with Randal Atamaniuk (Harper Design)

Even as a fan of the Back to the Future trilogy, I was a bit taken aback by the hype surrounding October 21, 2015, a.k.a., the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in the Hill Valley of the future in Back to the Future II. It is only fitting, then, that part of the hype includes the wildly entertaining Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History. Featuring the participation of, well, everyone involved, from »

12 Things We Learned From Terry Gilliam's Wild Memoir

9 November 2015 11:52 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Over the past half-century, Terry Gilliam has lived several lifetimes — first as the mastermind behind the surrealistically satirical animations on Monty Python's Flying Circus and then as a filmmaker with an unparalleled, singular imagination. His oeuvre contains everything from literary flights of fancy (Jabberwocky) and kid-friendly fantasies (Time Bandits) to dystopian epics (Brazil and Twelve Monkeys), kaleidoscopic romps (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) and the occasional slightly warped drama (The Fisher King, Tideland).

Now 74, Gilliam looks back on his life achievements, as well as »

Notes on the Fascinatingly Mundane Origin Story of Terry Gilliam

5 November 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Someone who cracks open Terry Gilliam‘s Gilliamesque hoping for a comprehensive and complete portrait of the man’s career may be disappointed. The memoir from the director of Brazil, Time Bandits, and The Fisher King is akin to having a nice, long sit-down with an eccentric uncle who stories to tell and grudges to share. It’s a […]

Kristen Stewart and Chloe Sevigny to star in Lizzie Borden movie

Following an award-winning turn in Clouds of Sia Maria, Kristen Stewart is set to team with Chloe Sevigny on a film about Lizzie Borden. Sevigny will play Borden, the strange and fragile woman who was infamously tried and acquitted for murdering her father and stepmother with an ax in 1892. The film will explore the events that led up to that night, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pieter Van Hees, who directed the 2014 film Waste Land, will helm the film with Bryce Kass writing the script. Stewart is currently filming the latest movie by Woody Allen. Sevigny was previously attached to a Lizzie Borden project with HBO, but will pursue this instead.

The Big Problem With Superhero Movies, According To Terry Gilliam

29 October 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Between the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe, and DC.s about-to-blow-up Extended Universe, superhero movies have become ubiquitous at the movie theater these days. As you might expect, this comes with some backlash. Steven Spielberg.s recent comments on the genre made headlines, and now it.s Terry Gilliam.s turn to chime in, and though he likes Ant-Man, he thinks they have one big problem, they're too predictable. In recent, not to mention extensive, interview with Live Talks Los Angeles, the Brazil director and Monty Python member said: I also worry when things become so repetitive, and now got to get all the Marvel universe dancing with each other, so Superman has now got to make love to Batman or something. And these are the things that create that complete and hermetically sealed world, [and that] really bothers me, because the Bible is more interesting, and the stories »

Watch: Tom Hiddleston and Elisabeth Moss Occupy ‘High-Rise’ in First Clip and BFI Q&A

11 October 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There were few more divisive films to arrive on the fall festival circuit this year than Ben Wheatley‘s adaptation of J.G. Ballard‘s 1975 dystopian novel High-Rise. We fell on the masterpiece side when it comes to the story of a doctor, played by Tom Hiddleston, who moves into a luxury apartment complex that is cut off from the rest of society, naming it one of the best films of Tiff. Within the building, the eccentric tenants have a very complex world of their own, and now we can get an early glimpse of it thanks to the full clip, also featuring Elisabeth Moss. Unfortunately, there’s no news yet on U.S. distribution, but those in the U.K. can catch it when it arrives next March.

We said in our review, “As soon as the voice of Tom Hiddleston‘s Dr. Robert Laing was heard speaking narration above »

'Time Bandits' TV Show in the Works with Terry Gilliam

9 October 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every big name movie director has slowly, but surely, made the exodus to television. And next to fall in line is acclaimed filmmaker Terry Gilliam. He's not going to come quietly when he does, though. And he has some mighty big plans for the small screen. One of those plans is to turn his 80s cult hit Time Bandits into a TV show. He also has plans for a series that is likened to The Fisher King.

Time Bandits may be one of the most interesting and unique time travel movies of all time, and it certainly has no identifiable comparison. For years, diehard fans have wanted a sequel to the 1981 adventure, which follows a young boy who accidentally joins a band of dwarves as they jump from time-period to time-period looking for treasure to steal. For a while, it sounded like a remake might happen, but the original movie is so crazy, »

The Martian, loneliness and space movies

29 September 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Films offer some of the best explorations of isolation and loneliness, argues James...

"In space no one can hear you scream." . The tagline for Alien, and the sad truth for anyone who's crying out for company in the wider cosmos beyond our stratosphere.

The following is a true story - many winters ago I decided that it'd be a good idea to leave behind my loved ones and wider society and go into solitary exile. I made an agreement with a stranger online and said I would spend the whole of that December looking after her two cats while she was away in Australia.

I then headed off to a cottage in the Welsh Valleys to fulfil this responsibility and, aside from those two indifferent kitties, I had no company at all. In my mind I'd envisioned this as a perfect retreat from a Christmas season I couldn't be mithered »

Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Overshadowing ‘The Intern’

23 September 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hotel Transylvania 2” will take a bite out of the box office this weekend, as “The Intern” looks to recapture the sparkle of past Nancy Meyers hits like “Something’s Gotta Give” and “It’s Complicated.”

Then there’s “Everest,” the high-altitude adventure that got off to a muscular start in a limited Imax and premium format run last weekend. It expands to 3,004 theaters on Friday. The trio of high profile releases join holdovers like “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” in powering what is shaping up to be a healthy September for ticket sales. The past three weekends have seen overall receipts top the year-ago period, and overall revenues are up 20% from last year. The streak could continue if the combination of the “Hotel Transylvania” followup, Meyers’ latest comedy, and the mountaineering drama prove to be a bigger draw than Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer” and “The »

Venice 2015: 'For Your Love' review

12 September 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Following a Malickian break between films - his debut Round the Moons Between Earth and Sea was released in 1997 - Giuseppe M. Gaudino tells with For Your Love (2015), the final entry to compete for the Golden Lion at the 72nd Venice Film Festival, a tale of ordinary madness told in an extraordinary but often scattergun way. The woman on the verge of as nervous breakdown is Anna Ruotolo Scaglione, played by Italian actor and director Valeria Golino. A long musical introduction Neapolitan dialect introduces us to Anna as a "capascaqua" or "featherbrain" as the subtitles would have it. However, right from the start Gaudino suggests that Anna is suffering from a quite severe mental illness.

Anna's general unhappiness is already evident from her face, but as if that wasn't enough For Your Love is mostly played out in an ill-conceived monochrome palette reminiscent of those adverts for Calvin Klein's Obsession. »

Terry Gilliam Dies; Promptly Releases Trailer for Memoir

10 September 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

You may have heard that Terry Gilliam is dead. That is, according to Variety who released news of the director's demise on September 8, 2015. Not surprisingly, this came as a bit of shock to the director of such films as Brazil, Time Bandits and, most recently, Zero Theorem (review), who later made an apology to fans for being dead.

Variety shocks Terry Gilliam fans with false obituary

10 September 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety has terrified Monty Python fans by announcing the death of actor and director Terry Gilliam (The Zero Theorem), before correcting their mistake hours later.

See Also: Funko announces Monty Python and the Holy Grail Pop! Vinyl figures for November

The mistake was swiftly noticed on Twitter, with journalist Sean Fitzgerald asking whether someone pressed “the publish button on the wrong post”.

Variety swiftly issued a correction via their own Twitter account, apologising for the error.

Correction: Variety incorrectly published an article stating that director Terry Gilliam passed away. We’re deeply sorry for the mistake.

— Variety (@Variety) September 8, 2015

The Brazil director himself responded to the news on Facebook in typically tongue-in-cheek fashion as he said sorry for being dead to those who had already bought tickets for his upcoming talks.

It’s safe to say that Gilliam has neither expired, ceased to be, gone to meet his maker or shuffled off his mortal coil. »

Terry Gilliam responds to erroneous reports of his death in the best possible way

10 September 2015 1:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A recent article from Variety wrongly claimed that Terry Gilliam was dead - but that hasn't stopped the director from confirming the reports of his demise.

The Monty Python star took to social media in response to Tuesday's (September 8) error and apologised for the massive inconvenience of his passing.

I Apologise For Being Dead especially to those who have already bought tickets to the upcoming talks, but, Variety has...

Posted by Terry Gilliam on Wednesday, 9 September 2015

"I Apologise For Being Dead especially to those who have already bought tickets to the upcoming talks, but, Variety has announced my demise," Gilliam wrote. "Don't believe their retraction and apology!"

In typical Gilliam style, the post also uses a photoshopped picture of the Oscar-nominated director on a death bed, with a sign reading: "He was only 30! Bad reviews from Variety aged him!"

For a second we thought we.d lost another Python. We were told that Terry Gilliam had ceased to be. But luckily it was just a news publication getting the news very, very wrong, and, as they say, rumors of Terry Gilliam's demise have been greatly exaggerated.

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1984

8 September 2015 6:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The year that gave us Gremlins, Ghostbusters and The Temple Of Doom also gave us these 20 underappreciated movies...

It's been said that 1984 was a vintage year for movies, and looking back, it's easy to see why. The likes of Ghostbusters and Gremlins served up comedy, action and the macabre in equal measure. James Cameron's The Terminator cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's star status and gave us one of the greatest sci-fi action movies of the decade.

This was also the year where the Coen brothers made their screen debut with the stunning thriller Blood Simple, and when the Zucker brothers followed up Airplane! with the equally hilarious Top Secret! And we still haven't even mentioned Beverly Hills Cop, This Is Spinal Tap, The Karate Kid, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom and the unexpectedly successful romantic comedy, Splash. Then there was Milos Forman's sumptuous period drama Amadeus, which »
