When Woody Harrelson was first offered a major part in War for the Planet of the Apes, he had visions of stepping into the skin of a primate.

Then he realized he was being asked to play the Colonel, an iron-fisted, ruthless soldier brought in to tamp down the now hyper-intelligent apes waging war with mankind.

The 55-year-old actor admits he was a bit chagrined. “I tried anything and everything to get them to come around, but they told me I was playing a human,” he explains, tongue in cheek, during a recent chat at a posh Manhattan hotel. Dressed in a blue T-shirt and hoodie, he’s approachable and irreverent. “I »

TV Rewind: The 9 Shows That Defined 1990, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Wings’

14 June 2017 1:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year 1990 was the beginning of a new decade that just had survived the neon excesses of the ’80s. This fresh start was seen in the world at large with the reunification of Germany, the unification of Yemen, the release of Nelson Mandela and the resignation of Margaret Thatcher as the U.K.’s prime minister.

It was also the fledgling days of the internet, when the first web server was created, providing a foundation for the World Wide Web as we know it.

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Cinematographers and the Films that made them great

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

So, we come to the end of this particular series. We’ve covered a number of aspects of the creative input into film-making, including actors, actresses, writers composers, and directors (in two parts). We’ve stopped short of costume, make-up, special effects, art design and others, however our final stop is Cinematography. The Dop exerts plenty of influence over the look of the film. Yes, lighting, production design and the director’s vision are key too, but the consistency and persistence with which certain directors stick with and return to a trusted Dop shows just how much they contribute.

Darius KhondjiSeven

Seven has a unique visual aesthetic. Plenty of films have gone for the “always raining, always dark” approach, but contrast Seven with something like AvP: Requiem for a shining example of how hard it is to pull off effectively. And contrast is the word. Seven »

DVD Review – Urban Hymn (2015)

30 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Urban Hymn, 2015.

Directed by Michael Caton-Jones.

Starring Shirley Henderson, Letitia Wright, Isabella Laughland, Steven Mackintosh, and Ian Hart.

Synopsis :

Set against a backdrop of the 2011 UK summer riots, a determined social worker encourages a young offender to develop her singing talent.

Urban Hymn is a drama certainly singing from a worthy enough song sheet. The film details the sort of youthful (and not so youthful) rage, delinquent activity and anti-social lawlessness that marked much of the UK riots of summer 2011.  It aims to bring a clear sense that this sort of rage needs to be understood and the disenfranchised need to be inspired to do something more productive with their time other than looting and robbing. It’s only partially successful in this, getting bogged down by a fairly old-fashioned style of formatting and direction. Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, Doc Hollywood) is an experienced director, but this picture has a fairly flat-footed delivery when, »
