Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect. Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's editing »

Wayward Pines Review – TV Fox

28 April 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The best thing about Wayward Pines, the new, short-run effort coming to Fox, is watching how it attempts to learn from the mistakes of similar shows that have come before.

From the less-than-stellar “remake” of The Prisoner with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen, to the largely goofball Persons Unknown (which was, sort of, The Prisoner 2: The Group), and everything else in the “trapped in a town” genre, the story can’t work if the characters are empty plot devices.

Wayward Pines is a rare example of setting out with the tropes and traps of a genre in order to dodge the pitfalls inherent in telling a type of story that can never fully distance itself from the fact that it’s pretty goofy. The problem is that while the show clearly tries to look at what made other efforts fall apart, and do those things differently, it isn’t »

Round-Up: Tom Savini’s Nightmare City Remake, Excerpt from Zombie Novel ‘Outbreak: The Hunger’, Watch First Episode of Wayward Pines

24 April 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Tom Savini’s Nightmare City remake has met its indiegogo goal, but you can still support it during its final campaign days to help provide the Umberto Lenzi-presented project with more resources. Also featured in our latest round-up is an excerpt from Scott Shoyer's zombie novel, Outbreak: The Hunger, as well as details on how you can watch the first episode of Fox's Wayward Pines ahead of its May 14th debut.

Tom Savini’s Nightmare City Remake: Tom Savini, the Godfather of Gore, is fittingly set to direct and supervise the special effects on the Monsta Worx remake of Umberto Lenzi's zombie movie, Nightmare City. Lenzi himself is associate producing and presenting the project, with shooting slated to begin late this year in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles. In addition to his duties behind the camera, Savini is also attached to play a role in the film, along with »

The Simpsons' top 30 movie references

23 April 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Simpsons has pastiched hundreds of movies in its time. From Hitchcock to Kubrick to Disney, we select our top 30 favourites...

The Simpsons has a long history of peppering its stories with pop culture references, and some of the show’s finest gags stem from the world of cinema. These have ranged from the briefest of quotes, to full on shot-for-shot parodies and extended episode-long homages.

Most striking in trying to put this list together was the sheer volume of movie references there are to choose from. In pretty much any given episode of The Simpsons, there are at least a couple, with nods to James Bond, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the work of Alfred Hitchcock proving three of the most regular candidates. The tributes to numerous great horror movies in the show’s Treehouse Of Horror episodes could have been used to fill this list all on their own. »

Review: 'Community' - 'Laws of Robotics and Party Rights': Death tab for cutie

7 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of this week's "Community" (available, as usual, on Yahoo Screen) coming up just as soon as I watch magicians bully jugglers... Though Jeff the student became Jeff the teacher last season, the show hasn't really done much with the idea, and I was glad to see so much of "Laws of Robotics and Party Rights" devoted to Jeff's class and his usual need to be the coolest guy in any room. Making his opponent be a convicted killer taking the class remotely via a telepresence robot(*) added an extra layer of absurdity to this type of story, but also an extra level of menace. The show made great use of the weird movements and sounds of the robot as it craned its neck up and down in hostile fashion, turning the whole story into a fun, strange mash-up of "Cape Fear" and "2001" (or insert your favorite prisoner revenge »

8 Unmade Steven Spielberg Films

31 March 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last week we reported on Steven Spielberg’s plans to direct an adaptation of the cult sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One. Color us excited. The novel involves players of a video game journeying into a virtual reality world rife with pop culture references and Easter eggs to the real world. The player who can decipher all the mysteries and references in the world wins the opportunity to control it. In Spielberg’s capable hands, it has the potential to be a technical marvel and a modern classic.

That is, if he actually makes it. Ready Player One poses some unusually problematic challenges on just a practical standpoint. Cline’s story falls into the “unfilmable novel” territory, not just for the digital world necessary for a filmmaker to recreate, but also in terms of licensing. To get the rights to depict the many iconic film and TV characters »

21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

31 March 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »

'Wayward Pines' Trailer: Matt Dillon Unravels a Mystery

19 March 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first trailer that debuted last month, Fox has released the second trailer for their highly anticipated event series Wayward Pines. We reported in December that the series will be released on May 14 in more than 125 countries around the world, making it the largest global launch ever for a scripted series. The mystery thriller was developed for television by Chad Hodge (The Playboy Club, Runaway) and executive-produced by Donald De Line (Green Lantern, The Italian Job), Ashwin Rajan (Devil), Hodge and M. Night Shyamalan, who directed the premiere episode.

The series stars Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon (Crash) as a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID. One of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office, he's the man who knew missing agent Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) better than anyone. They were more than »

‘Bloodline’ Producer on Casting Kyle Chandler, Working with Netflix and Lessons of ‘Damages’

18 March 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The trio of executive producers who created FX’s “Damages” — Daniel Zelman, Todd A. Kessler and Glenn Kessler — are at it again, with their new twisty tale “Bloodline.” The family drama-meets-thriller, which debuts on Netflix on March 20, boasts a star-studded cast, including Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard as the parents of a clan burdened by secrets, which come bubbling to the surface when black sheep son (Ben Mendelsohn) comes home. It falls to favorite son Kyle Chandler to protect them — and in true “Damages” fashion, nothing is at seems.

Variety talked to Zelman about how and his fellow EPs created their new thriller.

How did you come up with the idea for “Bloodline”?

It really started simply as a scene. We had finished “Damages.” We were partners with Sony, and we knew were going to do another project with them. We just wanted to make sure that whatever we were »

Watch: Fascinating, Side-by-Side Examination of the First and Final Frames from 55 Films

17 March 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Editor Jacob T. Swinney has created a fascinating five minute video featuring the first and final shots from 55 different films. In some cases we can attempt to draw meaning from what we're seeing and in others there doesn't appear to be much rhyme or reason, but that in itself can offer a window into what the director was attempting to achieve. My only complaint with the video is the fact Swinney didn't include the film titles in the actual video, opting instead to list them in the film's description. While the majority of the images are recognizable enough, I did find myself looking at the descriptions here and there, taking me out of the video for a second and ultimately causing me to have to pause the video overall. Not a major complaint, just more a compliment in fact to the engrossing nature of what was created. I personally find the images of Birdman, »

Juliette Lewis on Why Sitcom TV Almost Made Her Give Up Acting

13 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When she was just 17, Juliette Lewis got the attention of Martin Scorsese, landing a role in “Cape Fear” — then won an Oscar nom for impressively holding her own against Robert De Niro. But it was an even earlier part, at age 13 — in Showtime’s TV movie “Home Fires” — that earned her her first Variety mention, with our critic singling out her “sure performance.” “I was shocked to see it was the first job I’d ever done,” says Lewis, now starring in ABC’s “Secrets and Lies.”

You were so young. Did you always want to be an actor?

My dad (Geoffrey Lewis) is a character actor, so I always knew of the acting business as a line of work. You never have the same job twice; you work long hours, you get to work with interesting, colorful people. I always was connected to acting in that way — not from reading about it in magazines. »

The Boy Next Door, film review: Jennifer Lopez stars in absurd, half-baked erotic thriller

27 February 2015 | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Rob Cohen's half-baked erotic thriller plays like a misguided homage to Eighties video fare and to family-in-peril sagas like Unlawful Entry or Cape Fear. Jennifer Lopez plays Claire Peterson, a mom and a high-school English literature teacher who likes her Homer and her Virgil. Her husband (Corbett) has been cheating on her and they've separated, leaving her home alone with her troubled teenage son. »

Watch: Union Station Shootout In Brian De Palma's 'The Untouchables' Explored Shot-By-Shot In 11-Minute Video

26 February 2015 12:52 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you’re a regular reader of The Playlist, there’s a good chance you’ve heard the name Antonios Papantoniou by now. Sound familiar at all? Papantoniou is a fastidious and astute independent filmmaker who also makes incredibly detail-oriented, painstaking studies of camera and shot techniques employed by some of the greatest directors working today. He’s dubbed these video essays his “Shot by Shot” series. We’ve already featured ones he’s done on Spielberg (“Jaws”) and Scorsese (“Cape Fear”). Before Papantoniou studied either of those films, though, he turned his focus to the incredible and classic union station scene in Brian De Palma’s 1987 hit, “The Untouchables.” Ok — brief time out. If for whatever reason you haven’t yet seen the scene in reference, it’s one of the most tense, beautifully choreographed, flat-out awesome shootouts ever to be committed to film. We've added it below, so »

More Reboots Aren't a Solution For Bad Moviemaking

25 February 2015 6:23 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

That cult movie you love from 30 years ago? It’s coming back as a remake. Did the last attempt at a movie adaptation of a well-loved comic book hero not go so well? Don’t worry, they’re rebooting it. Does your favorite childhood film no longer appeal to newer generations? One word: remake. 

On Wednesday of last week we were greeted with the news that Neil Blomkamp’s next film would be another addition to the Alien franchise. This film will likely be a remake or reboot of the original film based on the confusion of Prometheus that will hopefully be explained by the end of Prometheus 2 (a sequel after Alien: Resurrection 20 years later just doesn’t make sense to me). Fans everywhere were excited for the announcement. Even if you don’t particularly like movies with Xenomorphs in them, the news wasn’t really that surprising. A »

“Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies

8 February 2015 1:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cinema deviants can come in all forms or variety. It is just a matter of taking your pick as to what kind of deviant you consider. Perhaps your preference of deviant is of the sexual or molesting persuasion? Or maybe in the arena of hustlers or swindlers or cheaters? Will notorious gangsters and corrupt officials fit the bill for your definition of legitimate deviant sources?

The one type of deviant prototype that no one can question or disregard in terms of an impacting impression is the serial killer…or any killer where the impulse to slaughter is mindless fun or in some cases a perverse release to punish society for their own inner psychological demons and despair.

In “Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies we will look at the selections of twisted individuals whose overwhelming passion for the pleasure of pain and punishment against their fellow »

"The Interview" of 1969

2 February 2015 5:32 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Interview and the geopolitical crisis it caused is arguably the most important movie-related story of recent weeks.

The story device featured in The Interview, the idea of a film featuring the assassination of the current ruling leader, is nothing new, and in fact  is seen through much of film’s history. In 1941 a German-in-exile Fritz Lang shown an unsuccessful attack on Adolf Hitler in Man Hunt (this story was also told in BBC’s Rogue Male from 1976 starring Peter O’Toole). The Shaw Brothers used the actual newsreel footage of Queen Elisabeth visiting Hong-Kong (then a British colony) in their 1976 martial arts flick A Queen’s Ransom (a.k.a. The International Assassin) starring post-James Bond George Lazenby as an Ira assassin and Angela Mao as a heroine trying to stop him. In fact, the Queen of England might be the most popular assassination target among actual world leaders »

‘The Loft’ Review: James Marsden and Wentworth Miller Thriller as Exciting as an Escrow Hearing

30 January 2015 11:45 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you were to unleash a naughty, baroque prankster like Brian De Palma onto the grimly joyless adulterous goings-on of “The Loft,” you might wind up with the kind of delicious trash this thriller so wants to be. Filmed in blue-steel noir-in-color and featuring performances in which everyone’s either mumbling or screaming, however, this silly chamber piece about sex and murder elicits only yawns, interrupted by the occasional unintentional giggle.

A remake of a 2008 Belgian film, this movie does occasionally have that awkward feel of something that’s been translated from one language into Esperanto and then finally into English. »
