John Ostrander: Double Your Pleasure

21 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When I was younger I would go to double features at the movies all the time; sometimes, even a triple feature. It was good value for the money; two movies for the price of one. We also had what was called second run theaters. These were more the neighborhood, smallish theaters that would show films after they had been in the larger theaters. There were even venues that would show old movies and change the program daily. This was before tapes or CDs were out and often were the only way to see old movies on a big screen (as God and Cecil B. DeMille intended).

Often the films were chosen randomly but every once in a while you’d get someone booking the films who knew what they were doing. I first saw Casablanca in a double bill with Play It Again, Sam, written and starring but not directed by Woody Allen. »

'Field of Dreams': THR's 1989 Review

21 April 2017 8:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On April 21, 1989, Universal unveiled Kevin Costner's baseball drama Field of Dreams in theaters. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

As the movie baseball season continues in full swing, Universal's Field of Dreams, formerly Shoeless Joe, takes its turn at bat with Kevin Costner once again in the cleanup position. Based on Costner's all-star, behind-the-plate performance last summer in Bull Durham, look for a full grandstand of both men and women at Dreams' opening weekend.

Like Bull Durham, Field of Dreams isn't so much about baseball as about life. Like those beer commercials where opposing sides of the bleachers »

“You Gotta Know the Chord Changes Before You Can do the Improvisation”: Ron Shelton on the 25th Anniversary of White Men Can’t Jump“

31 March 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Growing up in the basketball-crazy early ’90s, Ron Shelton’s White Men Can’t Jump was iconic long before I took the time to actually sit down and watch it: the title (that font stretching!), the baggy tanks and starched casquettes, the deadpan visages of Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes all but daring me to rent the movie every time I saw the VHS. Starring the duo as pickup basketball players who combine forces in an uneasy con-alliance, Shelton’s followup to Bull Durham is a stone cold classic: a big-hearted buddy comedy of dazzling cinematographic musculature, the camera bobbing and weaving cross-court […] »

The Best Of The Best -The Greatest Actresses and the roles that made them great

9 March 2017 4:15 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Actors, Writers, Directors, they all have their part to play and all have their echelons of excellence. For every Scorsese working at the top of their game, there’s a journeyman like Peter Berg and then a hack like McG (sorry to any McG fans out there). It’s all (obviously) much the same with the greatest actresses too – some consistently hit high notes, others work faithfully but perhaps unexceptionally and others struggle to ever escape derivative and low-brow work. Here are a few who fall squarely in the first group.

Susan SarandonDead Man Walking

Susan Sarandon is often underappreciated and underrated for her versatility. Consider the contrast between her campaigning, gracious nun in Dead Man Walking, her feisty southerner in Thelma & Louise, her boo-hiss Queen in Enchanted, the comparative gentleness (but definitely not blandness) of her roles in Robot & Frank and Elizabethtown and the oomph »

11 Facts About White Men Can’t Jump

19 January 2017 7:48 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With the news that White Men Can’t Jump will be … can’t jumping back into theaters courtesy of Kenya Barris, who created ABC’s hit Black-ish, we thought it would be a good opportunity to revisit some facts about the original 1992 film, starring future True Detective Woody Harrelson and future vampire hunter Wesley Snipes.

The film’s leads were almost Denzel Washington and Keanu Reeves

Washington turned the film down to do Malcolm X, and despite demonstrating his athleticism later in The Matrix, Reeves was apparently so uncoordinated on the court that he “almost broke my neck going up for a layup, »

White Men Can’t Jump is getting a remake

17 January 2017 10:50 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 18, 2017

The Wesley Snipes/Woody Harrelson basketball comedy White Men Can’t Jump is getting a remake next...

We know that nothing cheers you all up like a story of a remake of a film you like, so let us take a minute to assume the position before we pass this nugget on.

Ready?

Yep, the 1992 basketball comedy White Men Can’t Jump, starring Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson, is now in line for a big screen do-over. It’s in the hands of Kenya Barris, the creator of Black-ish, and 20th Century Fox is backing the project, as it did the original.

Ron Shelton, who was also behind classy sporting movies such as Bull Durham, Tin Cup and Cobb, wrote and directed the original film. He isn’t believed to be involved in the new version.

Instead, Kenya Barris will both produce the project and pen the new screenplay. »

White Men Can't Jump Remake Happening with Black-Ish Creator

17 January 2017 1:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While NBA superstar LeBron James continues to develop a long-gestating sequel to Space Jam, another current NBA star is working on a new basketball-themed remake. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is teaming up with the NBA's Blake Griffin and NFL star Ryan Kalil for a remake of the 1992 comedy film White Men Can't Jump. While the title for the original is actually a line in the film, delivered by Wesley Snipes' Sidney Deane to Woody Harrelson's Billy Hoyle, about his inability to dunk, it's quite ironic that Blake Griffin is producing, since he is a white man that can jump, winning the NBA Slam Dunk contest in 2011.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Kenya Barris will write the screenplay and produce this sports remake, which will fall under the overall deal he signed with 20th Century Fox last September. Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil will produce under their Mortal Media company, »
