'Black Mass,' Starring Johnny Depp, Lands Venice Premiere

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Black Mass" (directed by Scott Cooper) presents Johnny Depp in elaborate makeup as usual, as Boston criminal Whitey Bulger, from the 70s through the 90s. He is supposed to be scary in a "Goodfellas" Joe Pesci kind of way. Ahead of the film's September 18 debut from Warner Bros., "Black Mass" will screen on Friday, September 4, in the Sala Grande venue in the Lido's Palazzo del Cinema. Warner Bros. showed the film in rough early form to Cannes, but it wasn't finished in time. At CinemaCon, it looked like Depp is going overboard with the makeup as usual, aging as he goes and wearing strange contact lenses as the Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

Martin Scorcese's The King of Comedy is becoming a Broadway musical

23 July 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Martin Scorsese is one of the most revered filmmakers of all time and the vast majority of his movies are considered classics or important works of cinema. While a remake of Goodfellas or Taxi Driver would be sacrilegious, that doesn't mean they cannot be adapted as other formats such as the stage which is where the 1983 dark comedy The King Of Comedy is headed. The King Of Comedy stars Robert... Read More »

The first 'Sopranos' episode to address the show's critics, before they even saw it

22 July 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the eighth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the eighth episode, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti," coming up just as soon as I devote my energies to the dignity of Connie Francis... "Where's my arc?" -Christopher And here we come to the meta — before it was even 100% meta. "The Sopranos" quickly became a hit for HBO »

BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay Breakdown Of Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas'

21 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Film-Drunk Love’s latest “Film Breakdown” for the beloved Martin Scorsese classic “Goodfellas” begins with a spoiler alert. While the warning is appreciated, it’s also rendered moot by the fact that anyone with even the slightest interest in films of the past quarter century has likely seen the peerless mobster movie many more times than once. But watching a film isn’t the same as analyzing it, which is exactly what this thorough and spot-on video essay does for unarguably one of the best mafia movies ever made. The 10-minute study opens with a brief montage of some of the film’s brutal beatings and executions, capturing the spirit and tone of its subject before proclaiming the study’s thesis: “This film is not only an excellent showcase of writing and acting; it’s also an example of great directing.” The video then examines the myriad ways in which Scorsese crafted the masterpiece. »

“We Lost U2. What About Ennio Morricone?”: Phil Joanou on State of Grace, Making Heaven’s Prisoners and Working for Blumhouse

14 July 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In September 1990, the American cinema changed forever when Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas exploded onto the country’s multiplex screens. I’ve written elsewhere about that film’s influence and impact, which was so massive that its unfortunate side effect was to eclipse several other excellent mob films that were released at the same time. Indeed, the period was a remarkable one for terrific gangster movies – Miller’s Crossing, King of New York, Men of Respect, and The Godfather, Part III all premiered in the fall of 1990. To varying degrees time has been kind to all of these films, but none has aged […] »

Field Of Dreams revisited: why it still hits me every time

13 July 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

1989's Field Of Dreams might just be Kevin Costner's finest hour. So why does the film still manage to hit so hard?

"We just don't recognise life's most significant moments while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'well there'll be other days'. I didn't realise that that was the only day."

It's a useful piece of advice that's given to writers, that you need to put something on the line if you want a piece to really work. That you need to put some, and ideally a lot, of yourself into it.

Brace yourselves, I'm afraid. I make no promises that the quality of what you're about to read is much cop. But I can tell you that Field Of Dreams is an immensely important and rich film to me, one that hits me, and hits me hard every time I watch it. I think that it reinforces too »

Why France's god of grim made a knockabout Clouseau-style comedy

8 July 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bruno Dumont is famed for making relentlessly grim films that show the savage side of humanity. So why has he shot a knockabout comedy about a buffoonish cop? The French director explains how P’tit Quinquin came about – and why he has no regrets about casting a gardener who refused to learn his lines

I’m a little apprehensive about telling Bruno Dumont how funny I found his new film P’tit Quinquin. I half-expect him to bristle like Joe Pesci in GoodFellas: “Funny how? You think I’m here to amuse you?” After all, the French writer-director is legendary for the severity of his films and of his own sometimes taciturn manner. His work – from his 1997 debut La Vie de Jésus to the harrowing artist biopic Camille Claudel 1915 – characteristically portrays the bleaker corners of the human condition in a filmic language that can be dauntingly austere.

Watch: Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas' In 6 Minutes

26 June 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Viewed today, perhaps the most impressive thing about Martin Scorsese’s electric mob picture “Goodfellas” is still its pace. This is one of the most relentless films of all time, and we mean that in the best possible way. “Goodfellas,” the story of the rise and fall of Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill, shoots like a beam of lightning cocaine through three decades of life in the mafia, chronicling the dizzying highs and gory lows of a gang of self-made “wiseguys” whose only dreams were to get as rich as possible, as fast as possible. The film is a recollection, sure, with its protagonist fondly recalling all the cars he used to boost, the heists he used to pull, and most certainly all the drugs he used to sell, inhale, and flush down the toilet. But for a two-and-a-half-hour cinematic nostalgia trip, it’s a furious one. Scorsese has made »

Say What Again: Samuel L. Jackson’s 9 Best Performances

26 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When you think of Samuel L. Jackson, what do you think of? When I think about him, my brain tends to go to where I remember first seeing him, namely as Stacks, the low-level criminal from GoodFellas who has one of those famous “misunderstandings” with Joe Pesci’s psychotic gangster. For most people, however, the first thought is of Jules Winnfield, the hitman with the carefully groomed Jheri curl who works alongside Vincent Vega for Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction, and probably skip directly to his “great vengeance and furious anger” speech. There’s a good reason for that, and not just because Pulp Fiction is, well, Pulp Fiction, but because “great vengeance and furious anger” has always been what Jackson does so well. He rarely broods, preferring explosive, unrelenting torrents of roused disbelief and fury, belted out with urgency and end-of-the-rope exhaustion. The varied, near-musical timbre of his delivery »

Results – The Review

21 June 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

We would all like to be in better shape, I’m thinking. Even people who work out every day always seem to want to do more to be healthier, to get into better physical condition. And goodness knows obesity and sedentary lifestyles seem to be the norm for a great many people in this country. I have to count myself among the out of shape but wanting to do something about it. I have gained and lost the same 40 or 50 pounds so many times in my life it’s now difficult to lose that weight and keep it off. I have a gym membership but rarely use it and can’t seem to find the time to get back to the gym on a regular basis.

Maybe I should get a personal trainer? Which leads me to Results, a remarkable and good hearted movie about personal trainers, a new client »
