Andre The Giant Flying out of Japan in 1980

16 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I don’t think people really understood just how big Andre the Giant was unless they experienced him in person.  I never did unfortunately.  But I think the moment I realized just how much of a “giant” he was, was in the movie The Princess Bride.   It was when Indigo Montoya put his hands in Andre’s hands and you saw just how massive Andre’s hands were.   I mean sure, you look at him in interviews and all that but to see a grown man’s hands get completely swallowed up by his hands was a defining moment of his sheer size.

The Truth About Zardoz, Plus Nine Other Things I Learned At Tcmff 2017

15 April 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Just back from the 2017 TCM Classic Movie Festival with a few thoughts and thoughts about thoughts. I certainly held my reservations about this year’s edition, and though I ultimately ended up tiring early of flitting about from theater to theater like a mouse in a movie maze (it happens to even the most fanatically devoted of us on occasion, or so I’m told), there were, as always, several things I learned by attending Tcmff 2017 as well.

1) TCM Staffers Are Unfailingly Polite And Helpful

Thankfully I wasn’t witness, as I have been in past years, to any pass holders acting like spoiled children because they had to wait in a long queue or, heaven forbid, because they somehow didn’t get in to one of their preferred screenings. Part of what makes the Tcmff experience as pleasant as it often is can be credited to the tireless work »

Wuv, twoo wuv...it's still going strong, nearly 30 years later. Cary Elwes posted on social media Saturday the sweetest 51st birthday tribute to Robin Wright, his co-star in the 1987 cult fantasy film The Princess Bride. The two play love interests Westley and Buttercup. Elwes, 54, posted a photo of the two sitting in their costumes on their outdoor set, with her wearing the red dress she sported when her character gets kidnapped under a matching puffer coat. The actor sports an olive green parka over his black pirate's outfit, as well as a cap. "Happy Birthday Robin," Elwes wrote. "You were a princess when we met, and now you're lovelier than any queen.

Tcmff Day 2: Carl & Rob Reiner Honored at Handprint Ceremony

8 April 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Anne Marie

While Turner Classic Movies is typically known for celebrating film history, today TCM made history. Carl Reiner and Rob Reiner, writer/director/actor/producer quadruple threats whose career includes Sid Caesar's Show of Shows, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Russians are Coming, The Russians Are Coming, The Princess Bride and This Is Spinal Tap, were the first father/son duo to be immortalized in the Chinese Theater handprint ceremony. Before the two cemented their legacy next to Marilyn Monroe, Al Pacino, and Trigger the Horse, friends and colleagues from their cumulative 135 year long careers paid tribute to two of the funniest men in Hollywood »

A Tcmff 2017 Preamble

6 April 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“It’s the most wonderful time/Of the year…” – Andy Williams

Well, yes and no. There is, after all, still about a week and a half to go before we can put the long national, annual nightmare of the tax season behind us. But it’s also film festival season, which for me specifically means the onset of the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival, the eighth iteration of what has become a perennial moviegoing event. More and more people flock to Hollywood Boulevard each year from all reaches of the country, and from other countries, to revel in the history of Hollywood and international filmmaking, celebrate their favorite stars (including, this year, beloved TCM host Robert Osborne, who died earlier this year and whose presence has been missed at the festival for the past two sessions) and enjoy a long-weekend-sized bout of nostalgia for the movie culture being referred to when »

'Boss Baby' Screenwriter to Pen Fox's Animated 'Frogkisser!' (Exclusive)

4 April 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fresh off the strong opening weekend of The Boss Baby, screenwriter Michael McCullers is set to adapt the children's book Frogkisser! for Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

The tone of the fairy tale musical — which will be a CG-animated hybrid title starring a live-action lead — is akin to the Shrek films and The Princess Bride: "Lighthearted but tongue-in-cheek."

Written by fantasy/Ya author Garth Nix, Frogkisser! centers on Princess Anya, who has an uncanny ability to break curses with magic-assisted kisses. When her evil stepfather (aka her evil »

30 Years Back: Celebrating the Cinematic Delights of 1987

29 March 2017 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe celebrates the cinematic delights of 1987…

The 80’s mark a special period in cinema for me. It’s predominantly an age thing. I grew up throughout the 80’s, soaking in some fantastic films. It was a rising golden age of blockbusters which took the foundations of what guys like Spielberg and Lucas launched in the late 70’s, as that stark, gritty and dramatically challenging output that delivered some of the best films of all time (The Godfather and more), gave way to more crowd pleasing, optimistic fare. The cinematic landscape went from the likes of The French Connection, The Conversation, and Chinatown to the more light-hearted Star Wars or Jaws.

As blockbusters swarmed the cinemas and multiplexes began spreading, audiences demanded entertainment. That trend has carried on and intensified and it’s truer than ever in these days of Marvel adaptations. The 80’s got me into cinema. That passion »

Grimm season 6 episode 12 review: Zerstorer Shrugged

Christine Horton Mar 29, 2017

Grimm's penultimate ever episode sets the stage for an emotional finale...

This review contains spoilers.

6.12 Zerstorer Shrugged

Here we are – the penultimate episode of Grimm, setting us up for the big showdown with Nick throwing down with an ancient demon in a bid to prevent the end of days.

The writers threw a lot at us, including a returning favourite, the death of others (maybe), a showdown with the Zerstorer, and a potential explanation as to the Stick of Destiny’s powers.

First things first – Diana pulled Nick and Eve back through the portal without realising the Zerstorer planned to hitch a lift back to Portland too. It appears that his plan was to target Eve, knowing Nick would follow, and eventually lead them to potential child-bride Diana. »

‘Buffy,’ ‘Community,’ ’30 Rock’ and More: TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes and How Well They Worked in Song and Dance

27 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Musical TV shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Glee” have a built-in understanding with audiences that bursting into a song or dance is part of the storytelling. When it comes to non-musical series, however, staging a musical number or episode can be a more challenging when it comes to finding an organic way to work it into the plot.

Recently, The CW’s superhero show “The Flash” and Syfy’s fantasy drama “The Magicians” dipped their toes into the world of musicals. “The Flash” tapped a character called Music Meister (Darren Criss) to knock out Kara and Barry (Melissa Benoit, Grant Gustin) and send them into an alternate reality, where they had to sing and dance their way to finding solutions. Music Meister, a super villain who could control people through music, has already been introduced in the DC Universe via animated series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” (and voiced »

We're all about Netflix and chill these days, but sometimes Netflix actually has zero chill.

The time has come. Netflix has announced the titles it's pulling from its catalog in April, and it's a staggering list. There are a handful of movies leaving, but it's really the TV shows that have us devastated.

All Female “Juno” Live-Read Announced to Benefit Planned Parenthood

20 March 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Juno

If there was ever a time we needed a feel-good comedy about a young woman owning her sexuality and reproductive autonomy, it’s now. So, we’re pleased to tell you that a tenth anniversary live-read of “Juno” will be held April 8 to raise funds for Planned Parenthood. Entertainment Weekly reports that “Juno” director Jason Reitman is re-staging the film with stars Ellen Page and Jennifer Garner, and an all female cast at Los Angeles’ Ace Theatre.

The Planned Parenthood live-read will see Page and Garner reprising their roles from the film. The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but actresses will take on all roles, including the ones Michael Cera, Jason Bateman, and J.K. Simmons originated. Reitman, who will direct, has previously staged all female live-reads of the male-centric “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “Stand by Me.”

Juno” follows a pregnant high school student (Page) who decides to carry her pregnancy to term and give the baby to adoptive parents Vanessa and Mark Loring (Garner and Bateman) — after initially considering and deciding against an abortion. The film was one of the rare depictions of reproductive choice that pleased both sides of the abortion debate: Juno decided to go through with the pregnancy but had access to an abortion. Even though she decided it wasn’t what she wanted, Juno never condemned the notion of abortion or wanted the right to be taken away.

“If there was any confusion about whether ‘Juno’ was pro-choice or pro-life, this [live-read] should settle that,” Reitman told EW. “Juno had a choice, and that was the most important part.”

Reitman discontinued his live-read series last April after five seasons of staging productions like “The Princess Bride” and “Boogie Nights.” After the 2016 election he was inspired to bring it back. “I wanted to find a way to contribute to the causes that have never felt more important,” Reitman said. “It occurred to me that I have this show that could be used as a tool to not only raise money for causes that need the help, but could serve as an opportunity for a group like Planned Parenthood to connect with an audience who can be presented with new ideas, or even an action item.”

“Considering how much this election has done against women and what Planned Parenthood has done for women I thought it would be cool to hear this script with an all-female voice,” Reitman added, referencing the organization’s many services like cancer screenings, Std testing and treatment, pregnancy tests, contraception, and, yes, access to safe, legal abortion.

This is most likely welcome news for “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody, who won an Oscar for the script. She has said, “I like talking about women’s issues in film, and feminism.” Cody, who will attend the live-read, continued, “A part of my career is that I am a woman and I’ve committed myself to writing roles for women. I cannot separate myself from that.”

Cody has penned women-centric fare like “Jennifer’s Body,” “Ricki and the Flash,” and “Paradise,” the latter of which she also directed. She is the creator of “One Mississippi,” a dramedy semi-based on star Tig Notaro’s experiences, and her adaptation of the UK series “Raised by Wolves” was recently given a pilot order.

Cody and Reitman reunited in 2011 for “Young Adult,” starring Charlize Theron as a woman who returns home to win back her married high school sweetheart. The duo are collaborating with Theron again for the upcoming “Tully.” The Oscar-winning actress portrays a “mother of three who forms a bond with the title character, a night nanny played by Mackenzie Davis (Sophia Takal’s ‘Always Shine’),” EW details.

Reitman will announce the full cast for the “Juno” live-read via Twitter a few days before the show. Tickets are available for purchase here. All money raised from ticket and merchandise sales will go to Planned Parenthood.

All Female “Juno” Live-Read Announced to Benefit Planned Parenthood was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Feature: Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold

10 March 2017 12:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If revenge really is a dish best served cold, then modern cinema is strewn with some brilliantly icy meals, not least of which is Tom Ford’s critically acclaimed potboiler, Nocturnal Animals, available on digital download, Blu-ray and DVD from March 13th courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Before we get to the fashion icon-come-auteur’s searing second project, though, let’s have a look at some of the best revenge films:

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The Bible

In The Shawshank Redemption, arguably one of the greatest tales of redemption we see Andy Dufresne imprisoned for the murder of his wife and her lover. At the start of Dufresne’s stint, the sadistic Warden Norton tells him that salvation lies within and upon realising Andy’s superior intellect and background in finance, uses him to fiddle his books. Dufresne eventually escapes, however this story wouldn’t be complete without his ultimate »

25 films all but guaranteed to cheer you up

Joe Richards Mar 24, 2017

Need to find a bit of movie happiness? Here are 25 films that might just do the trick...

Let's face it, we could all probably do with a little bit of cheering up right about now. Times are scary and times are tough, so it's perfectly natural to look for some kind of reassurance that everything will indeed be all right in the end.

Film is perhaps one of the most powerful and effective tools in doing this. It can be a transportative experience, an escape from reality, and, most importantly, it can act as a reminder of all that is good in the world.

With that in mind, here’s a list of 25 movies that are almost-guaranteed to make you smile and restore your faith in humanity...

City Lights

In truth, any of Charlie Chaplin’s films are perfect for those times when you just need to smile. »

Fdg Entertainment and Castle Pixel have announced that their upcoming title Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King will be released on Steam on the 28th March.  Imagine a game blending the best of the original Zelda game with the classic film, The Princess Bride and you have an action RPG game that not only keeps players on their toes but also satisfies that nostalgia for the good old days of gaming.  For a better look at what’s in store check out the trailer below.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, in a similar fashion to how The Princess Bride is told, is a tale passed from a grandfather to his grandchildren and is the story of a girl called Lily who becomes one of the Knights of the Rose and who must venture on a quest to search for the cure to the sleep curse placed on the King by the evil wizard Crocus. »

The Gff closing gala party at the Cca

This year’s Glasgow Film Festival came to a close over Saturday and Sunday, but there was an impressive collection of films packed into that time. Some viewers caught up on earlier festival highlights as they got additional screenings, but there were also a few interesting choices that had been saved until the end. First among these was Mimosas, which may have seemed familiar to some viewers because it shares footage with one of last year’s festival choices, The Sky Trembles And The Earth Is Afraid And The Two Eyes Are Not Brothers. Both blend fact and fiction to tell strange tales of life in the mountains and deserts of Morocco, with the latter telling the fictional story of what happens to Oliver Laxe, director of the former, after he strays from the set halfway through filming.
