Holiday Favorites 2012: Nathan Christ, 'Twin Peaks'

28 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Welcome to Holiday Favorites, a series in which Slackerwood contributors and our friends talk about the movies we watch during the holiday season, holiday-related or otherwise.

This installment comes from Nathan Christ, director of the Austin music documentary Echotone. Here's his pick:

This holiday season, I'm re-watching Twin Peaks.

It's not a film per se, but a series of one-hour films, and it's pure cinema. It speaks about society in a magical and mysterious way. It's the story of a community and is bursting with melancholy romance, spirituality, and battling archetypes. Most of its characters seek to be good but are frequently disrupted by shocking bursts of evil and violence, which takes on a visceral and chilling significance for me in our recent times.

Screenwriter Mark Frost Looks Back Upon Writing For The Fantastic Four Films

24 December 2012 4:28 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mark Frost has worn many hats in his life; an acclaimed television writer for NBC's police drama Hill Street Blues, co-creator of the groundbreaking television series Twin Peaks, a film producer (" The Greatest Game Ever Played"), a novelist ("The Paladin Prophecy"), and a screenwriter for Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Recently, Frost participated in an interview with the site, Portable, and he discussed working on Tim Story's superhero films, which starred; Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Chris "Captain America" Evans as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. Portable: You worked on the Fantastic Four movies. What’s it like working with someone else’s characters and a pre-established story and adding your own story to that?

‘Bates Motel’ Teaser Gives ‘Psycho’ a Cell Phone and a Lot of Mommy Issues

17 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 2013, A&E will debut Bates Motel, a prequel inspired by Psycho that tells the story of Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore). It comes from Lost executive producer Carlton Cuse and looks to have a bit of Twin Peaks inside of it. The production has released a teaser that also features some of the cast and crew speaking to their vision. It’s all a bit too obvious on the marketing side, but it’s not hard to imagine this being a freaky, scary exploration of a life that led to a delusional killer. And why does this look like a movie, while everything from Hitchcock looked like it was made for TV? Obviously there’s a natural aversive response to anything that takes a classic and “updates” it by shoving it into a modern setting, but there are a lot of reasons here to expect something dark and joyous.

“Hey You Geeks!!” Looks Back at the Best TV of 2012

16 December 2012 9:12 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When it came to devising a list of what I felt were the top ten Television shows of 2012 I contemplated sticking with the theme of “Hey You Geeks!!” and centering the list solely on the best sci-fi and nerd related shows on TV. I generally group “Geek TV” into a segment of shows exclusively featuring a sci-fi, comic book, fantasy or horror spin. Unfortunately, that does an injustice to both the term Geek and the medium of Television. Geeks are not held to one or few specific genres and the geek classification can be attached to literally anything if someone is enthusiastic or expertly dedicated to that particular thing. Not to mention, a lot of the sci-fi, horror and comic shows on TV tend to be terrible.

Sure, there are Walking Dead geeks who create memes after each episode and debate every zombie kill and change from the comics. But »

First Full Trailer for Psycho Prequel Series Bates Motel

14 December 2012 10:20 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first full trailer for the upcoming A&E series Bates Motel has been released.  The show comes from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night LightsKerry Ehrin and serves as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho, with Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother.  We previously saw a couple of moody teasers that were more than a little reminiscent of Twin Peaks, but this full trailer really ups the ante on the creepiness.  The second half of the trailer actually plays more like a featurette, with the cast and crew discussing the series.  Farmiga notes that they’re not remaking Psycho, they’re “using it as an inspiration.”  My interest is sufficiently piqued. Hit the jump to watch the 2-minute trailer.  The series also stars Nestor CarbonellMax ThieriotOlivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel.  Bates Motel premieres on A »

Sarah Jane Morris Soars on to Body of Proof

11 December 2012 6:29 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Actress Sarah Jane Morris played Julia Walker on Brothers & Sisters once upon a time, but her story continues as she signs on for a guest spot on ABC’s Body of Proof.

Body of Proof follows Dana Delany as medical examiner Dr. Megan Hunt, who was once a star neurosurgeon until a car accident ended her career. Season three kicks off in February of 2013 and in that season’s 12th episode, Sarah Jane Morris will appear as a flight attendant. TV Line reported that her character’s name is Pamela Jacks and she’ll become key in the aftermath of an “airline tragedy”. I wonder if this episode was at all inspired by the recent Denzel Washington film, Flight.

In season three, adds dashing former Human Target actor, Mark Valley will join the cast, so makr your calendar for Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 10/9c. It will take the place of Private Practice »

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): 'Revenge' writer on the creation of the White Haired Man

10 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Nothing kept us on the edge of our seats this year quite like the soapy, campy Revenge. While many revelations — the mysterious body identity, Victoria boarding a doomed plane — had us freaking out to our friends and hitting Twitter to float theories, one of the most buzzy and exciting twists was the introduction of the mysterious White Haired Man. We knew very little about him, and every morsel of intel we got just raised more questions. The pacing and set up were extraordinary, particularly in the penultimate episode of last season, “Grief.” Joe Fazzio co-wrote the episode, and below, he »

Rewind TV: The Fear; The Town; A Young Doctor's Notebook; The Secret Life of Rubbish; Imagine... Jeanette Winterson: My Monster and Me; Inside Claridge's – review

Peter Mullan's bravura performance wasn't enough to rescue Channel 4's incoherent four-part drama about a Brighton crime boss suffering from dementia

The Fear (C4) | 4oD

The Town (ITV1) | ITV Player

A Young Doctor's Notebook (Sky Arts 1)

The Secret Life of Rubbish (BBC4) | iPlayer

Imagine Jeanette Winterson: My Monster and Me (BBC2) | iPlayer

Inside Claridge's (BBC2) | iPlayer

The Fear ran across four consecutive nights for a total of four hours. The question is whether that was two hours or three hours too long. Those who argue that it was four hours too long have a strong case, but that would be unfair to Peter Mullan, who gave a powerful performance in difficult circumstances.

He played Richie Beckett, a Brighton crime boss with fast-moving dementia. He went from administrative incompetence to hopeless incontinence in about as much time as it would have taken him to pull his trousers down. »

The Noteworthy: Coppola's Comeback, McTiernan's Philosophy, Lynch's Hiatus

5 December 2012 5:58 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

 News.

The news that Francis Ford Coppola was moving back to the Paramount lot was exciting enough, but now it sounds like the director has some big plans in store:

"I have a secret investor that has infinite money. I learned what I learned from my three smaller films, and wanted to write a bigger film. I’ve been writing it. It’s so ambitious so I decided to go to L.A. and make a film out of a studio that has all the costume rentals, and where all the actors are. My story is set in New York. I have a first draft. I’m really ready for a casting phase. Movies are big in proportion to the period. It starts in the middle of the ‘20s, and there are sections in the ‘30s and the late ‘40s, and it goes until the late ‘60s."

Revisiting Lynch – Part Six: Inland Empire, Unmade Projects and Crazy Clown Time

5 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the early part of this century, Lynch spent a lot of time putting together his website David Lynch.com. Embracing the internet and the opportunities his own website afforded him, Lynch would make his own shorts available via this medium as well as the weird sitcom Rabbits and animated series Dumbland.  Lynch also branched out into coffee sales as his own brand was launched and available through the website. His next film was an even more polarising and baffling effort than anything he had previously made.

Inland Empire (2006)

Financed completely independently and filmed over a period of two years on new digital HD camera’s Inland Empire was initially a collection of scenes cobbled together from both Lynch’s own website (the Rabbits shorts) and scenes he would film with Laura Dern. Eventually the project started to take on some form of narrative plot and Lynch filmed scenes involving »

Underground Film Links: December 2, 2012

2 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

So, recently, I’ve gone from skipping links posts to having these posts be the only thing I’m updating on the site lately. That’s due to having a bit of a crisis of where to go from this point forward, plus I’ve been hit up with a few freelance projects for clients lately — which is a good thing for me personally, but a bad thing for people who enjoy this site as my time is being eaten up. Anyway, here’s this week’s (brief) list. Hmmm, perhaps others are in the same boat and not blogging as much…

Electric Sheep examines the little-examined sub-genre of sci-fi “monster women” movies, such as The Wasp Woman, which has the best poster of a creature not actually seen the film. And in related reading matter, they also review the new book House of Psychotic Women: An Autobiographical Topography »

First Two Teaser Trailers for A&E’s Psycho Prequel Series Bates Motel

30 November 2012 11:04 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A couple of tantalizing teaser trailers for A&E’s upcoming Psycho prequel series Bates Motel have been released.  We just recently saw a batch of images from the show that gave us a look at Freddie Highmore as the legendary Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma, and at the time I noted a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe.  That comparison seems even more valid after these two trailers, which tease a couple of haunting scenarios and hint that everything might not be what it seems at the eponymous Bates Motel.  The series comes from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kelly Ehrin, so I’ve got high hopes for this one. Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailers.  The series also stars Nestor Carbonell, Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, and Mike Voel.  Bates Motel premieres on A&E in Spring 2013. Here’s »

David Lynch: 'Feature Films Have Become Cheap' (Q&A)

Bydgoszcz, Poland – Director David Lynch sat down with The Hollywood Reporter shortly after  receiving his latest lifetime achievement award -- this time from the 20th Plus Camerimage in Poland, the world's leading festival dedicated to the art of cinematography. The elusive auteur behind Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks opened up about digital cinema, why he hasn't made a feature film since 2006's Inland Empire and why the future of cool movies is online. The Hollywood Reporter: Clips from your films were shown before you received your lifetime-achievement award. What was going through your mind while you watched? David Lynch:

Norman Bates Upgrades To An iPhone In New Images from 'Bates Motel'

28 November 2012 9:39 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Since being touted this past summer as a spiritual cross between “Smallville” and “Twin Peaks,” it's safe to say the A&E “Psycho” prequel “Bates Motel” is well on its way toward earning that claim. In terms of recent Hitchcock reverence, the series looks to take its tone more toward the bright absurdity of Anthony Hopkins' “Hitchcock,” rather than the dour one of “The Girl,” and now a slew of peculiar new photos have appeared to intrigue further. Building on the first look of young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) in front of that iconic house, the new images (Collider via THR) delve deeper into the series' new universe, created by “Lost” creator Carlton Cuse and “Friday Night Lights” writer Kerry Ehrin.
