Looking back at Oliver Stone's JFK

29 March 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Keeling Apr 19, 2017

Kevin Costner headlined an all-star cast in Oliver Stone's JFK. It was a film that led to an act of Congress being passed...

Oliver Stone’s epic conspiracy-thriller JFK, surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the case brought about by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison in relation to his murder, was released in 1991 to an astonishing level of critical backlash. Even before JFK arrived in theatres it was being pilloried and attacked by many in the media. The attacks were kick-started by Washington Post correspondent George Lardner, an investigative reporter who wrote a piece called On the Set: Dallas In Wonderland; How Oliver Stone’s Version Of The Kennedy Assassination Exploits The Edge Of Paranoia, which was actually based solely on a leaked copy of Stone’s first draft of the script.

Trump, Triumph and Speaking Truth to Power: Politics Take a Bow at 2017 Writers Guild Awards

19 February 2017 9:50 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When you think about the Writers Guild of America, which hosted two award ceremonies on Sunday night in two Blue cities, New York and Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that the writers spoke out. (Check out videos of some of the best bits below.)

For example, while accepting his life achievement award, filmmaker Oliver Stone got two standing ovations. After conservative James Woods was targeted at the top of the evening by WGA West Awards show host Patton Oswalt, retaliating by going onstage to steal his shoe, Woods presented the WGA award to the ultra liberal Stone, who starred him in “Salvador,” won three Oscars for “Midnight Express,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Platoon,” and penned “greed is good.”

Stone thanked mentors Robert Bolt and Ernest Lehman as well as Wma agent Ron Mardigian. He reminded that when he told Billy Wilder about his “Nixon” running time of 3 hours 10 minutes, »

How Did Marisa Tomei Win an Oscar for My Cousin Vinny?

8 February 2017 9:36 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Literally about 15 minutes ago I’m scrolling through the channels of my TV and My Cousin Vinny is on.   The second it comes on I see Marisa Tomei in the middle of her routine when she asks Joe Pesci to pretend he’s a deer getting shot in the head.  I think to myself, “how in the world did Marisa Tomei win best supporting actress that year?”  I ask myself the same question about how Driving Miss Daily won best picture when it was up against Dead Poets Society, Born on the Fourth of July, Field of Dreams, and My Left

On December 26th, 1991, the Soviet Union dissolved. This signalled the formal end of the Cold War, which left the United States as the sole remaining superpower, but did not necessarily usher in an era of peace at home and abroad. This shift in power instead opened a void in eastern Europe and the middle east which would come to be a source of conflict for the next two decades and beyond. A deadly civil war »

The Lonely Island: saluting 15 of their finest moments

11 January 2017 8:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gem Wheeler Jan 12, 2017

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone are comedy trio The Lonely Island. Here are just some of their finest songs and sketches...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was – yep, it’s time to call it - the funniest film of 2016. For those who blinked a little too long and didn’t catch it on its brief appearance in UK cinemas, the DVD release is your chance to find out what you’ve missed: a hilarious parody of current pop music’s excesses that blends acerbic criticism of predatory gossip shows and social media mobs with a sweet story of three feuding rappers struggling to mend their friendship. The fact that this touching tale also features Seal fending off a pack of wolves, Justin Timberlake dressed as a fish, and a bagpiper playing a lament at a beloved pet turtle’s Viking-inspired funeral comes as no surprise »
