Film Review: ‘Snatched’

9 May 2017 10:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy Schumer is one of those rare comic artists, like Louis C.K. or Chris Rock, who can get you laughing out loud at reality. Two years ago, she carried that scorched-earth impulse right into her first movie, the fearlessly funny and close-to-the-bone “Trainwreck.” Written by Schumer herself, and directed by Judd Apatow, it was the most audacious romantic comedy in years — and the most satisfying, too — because it touched a nerve of almost masochistic sincerity. In “Snatched,” her first movie since “Trainwreck,” Schumer gets cast as a loser who’s even further down on the totem pole of respectability. It’s a sign of Schumer’s rapport with the audience that in the opening scene, where she appears to be playing the most annoying off-the-rack clothing-store customer in history (it turns out she’s actually the sales person), the deeper the hole she digs for herself, the more we like her. »

Beauty vs Beast: Monkey Business

1 May 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here for another round of "Beauty vs Beast" - today is the 86th anniversary of the grand opening of the Empire State Building, aka the most famous building in the world. And so in its honor we're finally tackling the movie that not only birthed its legend but also gave this series its name...

"It was beauty killed the beast."

The Empire State Building was opened on May 1st 1931. President Hoover pushed a button in the White House in DC and the lights to the tower in NYC flicked on for the first time. Just under two years later the movie King Kong would be released (director Merian Cooper supposedly came up with the idea of the plane battle at its top), immediately branding the iconic skyscraper and its most famous big monkey occupant - and his little blonde friend (Fay Wray) - onto every human brain, »

Rumble Fish / Edgar Wallace Collection

25 April 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Rumble Fish 

Blu-ray

Criterion

1940 / B&W / 1:85 / Street Date April 25, 2017

Starring: Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane.

Cinematography: Stephen Burum

Film Editor: Barry Malkin

Written by S.E. Hinton and Francis Ford Coppola

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

 

Rumble Fish, Francis Ford Coppola’s Young Adult tone poem, unspools in a black and white never-never land of sullen teens, pool tables and pompadours. It may take a moment for the audience to suss out that we’re not in the Eisenhower era with Chuck Berry, Marilyn Monroe and the Cold War but squarely in Reagan’s domain of MTV, Madonna and the Cold War.

Set in a destitute Oklahoma town with the ghost of The Last Picture Show whistling through its empty streets, Matt Dillon plays Rusty, an inveterate gang-banger growing up in the shadow of his older brother played by Mickey Rourke, a reformed juvenile »

Beauty vs Beast: Look Who's Still Here

24 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast" fun-time - I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this one at the start of this year when we were mourning the epic loss of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (I even re-watched this film at that time) but perhaps the pain was too much. Anyway as Nat told you earlier it's Shirley MacLaine's birthday so the right time has revealed itself, and today we'll tackle Mike Nichols' glorious 1990 comedy Postcards From the Edge, starring MacLaine and some Meryl woman, based on Fisher's thinly veiled book about a drug-addict actress and her let's-say-ebuillent actress-mother. Mother-Actress? Actress-Singer-Mother? Well that's the question, isn't it?

Previously I'm shocked and flabbergasted by you people - hasn't Jennifer Garner suffered enough? We wished her a happy birthday last week with some 13 Going on 30 love and y'all rejected her star-making performance for Adorable Mark Ruffalo. »

Carrie Fisher Helped Write Star Wars 8

19 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Celebration in Orlando kicked off last week with an epic panel that celebrated the franchise's 40th Anniversary. It included a heartwarming tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. The next day, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy joined director Rian Johnson for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel, celebrating what will ultimately be one of Carrie Fisher's last movies. Both the LucasFilm president and director paid tribute to the late actress in their own way, and Rian Johnson revealed that she even helped him write the Last Jedi script.

During the first half of the panel, hosted by Josh Gad, fans got to see a number of The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes photos that were taken by Rian Johnson on the set, one of which featured Carrie Fisher in full costume, with her feet up on a desk between takes, alongside Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and John Boyega (Finn).

Michael Ballhaus, the revered cinematographer who brought his distinct visual sense to the works of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Rainer Werner Fassbinder, has died at 81.

Once there, he also worked with Mike Nichols (“Working Girl,” “Postcards From the Edge”), Robert Redford (“Quiz Show”) and Barry Levinson (“Sleepers”), among many others. Ballhaus was born in Berlin on August 5, 1935. His cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Filming an emotional scene in which her character struggles to say goodbye to her lover, the actress would show up on the set in Winterset, Iowa, at 9 in »

Shirley MacLaine Talks Playing Strong-Willed Women at 'The Last Word' Premiere

2 March 2017 11:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Shirley MacLaine’s long and legendary career has often been distinguished by her portrayal of women with colorful, feisty temperaments like Terms of Endearment’s Aurora Greenway, Steel Magnolia’s Ouiser Boudreaux and Postcards From the Edge’s Doris Mann. 

“I don’t think these women I play are difficult,” MacLaine told The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of her new film, The Last Word, which features the latest in her line of ladies with big personalities. Her control-minded, widely disliked Harriet Lawler, hoping to define her life on her own terms, hires young writer Anne (Amanda Seyfried) to craft a truth-telling obituary in advance of »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am

This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.

Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.

Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

FX announced last month that “Katrina,” which is the follow-up to “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” won’t be ready until 2018. That’s to allow producers more time to craft the story; but the delay was also attributed to Hurricane season-related insurance issues.

Production on the series’ third installment, about the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace, will actually take place before “Katrina.” That will allow FX to air both editions within six months of each other in 2018, and perhaps put the »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Last Word’

24 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Here’s a new movie rule: If you’re going to sit through a Sundance “crowd-pleaser,” complete with cardboard situations and cheeseball snark and life lessons, it’s always better if that movie stars Shirley MacLaine. In “The Last Word,” she plays — what else? — a cutely difficult pie-eyed pixie-curmudgeon who is always scolding everyone and telling them how to improve themselves. I can think of many films where she played a similar role that outclass this one — like “Terms of Endearment,” “In Her Shoes,” “Bernie,” or “Postcards from the Edge.” Those were real movies. “The Last Word,” written by Stuart Ross Fink and directed by Mark Pellington, is an eager assemblage of quasi-fake setups and two-stroke characters. It makes “Little Miss Sunshine” look…organic. (It’s also not nearly as well-made.) Yet MacLaine, who isn’t above falling into high-concept shtick herself, hasn’t lost the gift of spontaneity. At 82, she’s spry and fearless. »

In honor of Streep’s incredible feat (which she celebrated with an epic gif of her dancing; see below), we’re looking back at the roles that got her the accolades. Think of it as a pre-ceremony binge list!

A Dear Friend Remembers How Carrie Fisher Became a Novelist

13 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In an excerpt from People’s new commemorative issue, Carrie Fisher: Hollywood Princess, her friend of three decades and “book whisperer” Paul Slansky tells People exclusively how the actress launched her career as a writer. 

It was impossible to spend five minutes with Carrie Fisher without knowing that you would never meet anyone else like her. She was as intimate and honest with a total stranger as with an old friend, and while false intimacy is something that often comes easily to celebrities, what set Carrie apart was that she also listened to the other person, elicited a mutual intimacy and cared about it. »
