Blu-ray Review – Miracle Mile (1988)

16 October 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Miracle Mile, 1988.

Directed by Steve De Jarnatt.

Starring Anthony Edwards, Mare Winningham, Denise Crosby, John Agar, Lou Hancock, Mykelti Williamson, and Kurt Fuller.

Synopsis:

After answering a pay phone at four in the morning and hearing a message warning of all-out nuclear war, a young man must find his new love and try and survive the upcoming Armageddon.

Creating a rare form of genre shifting, high-concept fantasy, Miracle Mile is a memorable blend of anxiety dream, satirical humour and romantic adventure. First written in 1983, writer/director De Jarnatt bought back the rights to his compelling script and took on the project himself five years later. The decision proved to be a excellent one, and today the film stands up extremely well.

Harry (Anthony EdwardsER, Top Gun) is a young visitor to La who happens to meet the love of his life Julie (Mare Winningham, St Elmo’s Fire) at a local museum. »

How New Funding Can Change The British Film Industry

15 October 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at new guidelines for British films…

It’s been a quiet week for film industry news, but it’s entirely possible that you missed the fact that the British Film Institute Film Fund is being revamped to be more inclusive. The Film Fund, which distributes National Lottery money to film projects, is a vital part of filmmaking in Britain. Without it, independent British films wouldn’t get made.

It’s a common argument; one I’ve made myself in the past, that the British entertainment industry is dominated by privately educated people from London and the South East, and these new Film Fund guidelines and changes are hoping to rectify that imbalance.

It can’t have escaped the attention of anyone remotely interested in film that there seems to be something wrong with power held by a few individuals who may or may not abuse their position for personal gain. »

'Sky Hunter': Film Review

11 October 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A gifted but maverick (sorry) fighter pilot goes from rogue hotshot to true hero, and gets the girl, in director-star Li Chen’s Sky Hunter, a shameless Top Gun knock-off and a bit of nationalist entertainment from China’s recent wave of ultra-patriotic action adventures — and the first to feature actual Chinese military hardware. Released over the National Day weekend, Sky Hunter barely earned its budget back, and other markets it would, ahem, fly in are a mystery. Opening a full three weeks later in Hong Kong, the film’s brand of gung ho nationalism is likely to be a bitter pill »

Hot Shots!: the last great spoofs

10 October 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robb Sheppard Oct 13, 2017

The Hot Shots! movies were the peak of spoof cinema in the 1990s. We take a look back...

Spoof. Say it aloud. Feels like a dirty word doesn’t it?

Aside from even sounding slightly smutty, the spoof movie genre has, of late, been sullied by (five!) Scary Movies, Meet The Spartans and - oh, the irony - Disaster Movie. Transitory, devoid of wit and with the lowest common denominator in their crosshairs, these movies aimed for the tittering teenager, the cheap thrill-seeker and the perpetually stoned.

Perhaps the above seems like a sweeping generalisation, but it’s with good cause. Where these movies and even the term spoof itself have since been eschewed, there remains a series of films which occupy a place of fondness in the heart of - including yours truly, obvs - many a film fan: the Zaz movies.

‘Top Gun 2’ Will Not Be A Movie About Drones, ‘Alien: Covenant’ Sequel Will Be More About AI Than Aliens

9 October 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Before his death in 2012, director Tony Scott promised Top Gun 2 would be “a very different movie” from the 1986 original and hinted at the idea of involving drones in the high-flying sequel. In the subsequent years, the project has undergone numerous rewrites – so much so that it seems the drone idea has been scrapped altogether. And […]

Review: Interred with Their Bones—Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049"

9 October 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

There’s a nagging question at the heart of Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, and it’s to do with need. Why does Ryan Gosling’s Detective K need a robot wife (Ana de Armas), programmed to speak in a diaphanous lisp? Why does he need an apartment? What purpose is there for a robot to blend in? Everyone in his world can almost smell his oiled gears, his falseness. So why does he need the trappings of reality? Like Twin Peaks: The Return, Blade Runner 2049 has to interrogate its own incongruous existence so many years after the artifact that gave it life first entered the cultural bloodstream. Why does this film exist, beyond the potential box office? Why have writer Hampton Fancher and producer Ridley Scott gone back here? Who needs this? The film seems aware of itself as an automaton theatrical event. It watches itself; taking place behind glass, »

Top Gun: Maverick director shoots down rumor that film’s plot involves drones, Jerry Bruckheimer talks sequel pressure

9 October 2017 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski recently addressed the rumor circulating that the film involves the rise of drone technology. Speaking to CinemaBlend, the director swiftly shoots down the idea:

“Personally, I would never want to see a movie about drones. For me Top Gun has always been not about fighter planes. It’s been about fighter pilots.”

It’s probably safe to say that his sentiments mirror that of many fans. Top Gun holds a special place in the hearts of those who grew up in the ’80s, and anyone who has ever lived in a dormitory. The film is beloved for its one-liners, over-the-top aerial stunts, and it’s charming depiction of volleyball; less so the films accurate representation of aerial warfare.

Meanwhile, speaking to Metro, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has discussed the pressure of ensuring that the sequel lives up to the 1986 original:

Why 1980s Science Fiction Is Huge Right Now

8 October 2017 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at why dystopias from thirty years ago are the biggest influence on Hollywood…

With a new Blade Runner movie opening to rave reviews, a new (and hopefully decent) Terminator film on the way, it looks like 80s science fiction is the way to go if you want to get a movie made now.

There are a few reasons for this, and probably the most important is that Hollywood, like publishing and the music industry, is extremely faddish; if something is a success it will quickly be followed by half a dozen very similar products hoping to hook themselves onto the bandwagon.

The other reason is that the people currently making movies came of age during that decade; the films that inspired them were the ones they are now referencing, making sequels to and remaking. It’s inevitable we’re going to end up with movies like Blade Runner 2049 »

‘Call Me By Your Name’ Is More Than Just A Sensual Pleasure [Nyff]

6 October 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The steamy sexuality and physicality of “Call Me by Your Name” seems to be all anyone can talk about. The scene with the peach. The hottest volleyball game since “Top Gun.” Armie Hammer’s voice reading the audio book. And again, that peach scene. The normally chilly Walter Reade Theater felt oddly warm during a press and industry screening earlier this week, and it wasn’t just the Indian summer weather outside.

Top Gun 2: Jerry Bruckheimer is feeling the pressure

5 October 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Oct 6, 2017

Jerry Bruckheimer has been chatting about the Top Gun sequel...

Arriving in the summer of 2019, a good 33 years after the original, is the sequel to Top Gun. Tom Cruise is set to return and fly more planes, which he hasn’t done on a cinema screen for a good few weeks now. Joseph Kosinski is set to direct.

Jerry Bruckheimer, meanwhile, is back on producer duties for the movie, and he’s admitted that there’s higher than usual pressure with this particular project.

“I’ll tell you, any movie you make has pressure there, and when you have an iconic movie like Top Gun you know the bar is really high”, he said to Metro.

“But we try to raise the bar in everything we do so it’s all about getting enormously talented people to work on it, and Tom is such a gifted not only actor, »

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Script Is Done, When Will We See It?

3 October 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Doug Liman, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are making progress on Edge of Tomorrow 2. Or, as Liman says it may be titled, Live Die Repeat and Repeat. In the most recent update provided by the director, he reveals that Christopher McQuarrie has finished the script for the sequel. So where does that leave us? Unfortunately, scheduling is going to be a bit of an issue. Here's what director Doug Liman had to say in a recent interview with Collider.

"Tom and Emily and I are really excited to go do it. We have a script. We're just trying to find a time to schedule it, between my schedule and Emily's and Tom's. But it's one of these things where it's a sequel whose origins come from the best possible place, which is, it's not a studio saying, 'Hey, we think we can make some more money. Let's just stamp out another one. »

Tom Cruise’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey

2 October 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Last weekend saw the release of the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, “American Made,” and critics are raving that it’s better than “The Mummy!” In honor of this great achievement, we ask: What is Tom Cruise’s greatest performance?

Read More:‘American Made’ Review: Tom Cruise Finally Lands a Role Worthy of His Talents E. Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush.com

The greatest Tom Cruise performance of all time happened on Oprah’s couch in 2005. But in the movies? “Magnolia.” It’s the best, but it’s also the “most” Cruise performance. His batshit insanity just barely holds together the fragile insecurity of the man beneath the horndog motivation speaker. »

Why Tom Cruise Should Make the Migration to Television — Very Good TV Podcast

2 October 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Remember the time when an actor was perceived to be taking a fall when moving from the big screen to the small screen? Well, thankfully, those times are gone and we can see A-listers grace all screens without judgement. Just look at the gang from “Big Little Lies” or Dwayne Johnson in “Ballers.” And yet there are still some actors that have not (yet) dipped their toes in television and the crucial question is: Should they even try?
