10 Best TV Shows to Watch in June: Killer Cars, Putin Speaks and More

31 May 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's a strange month for TV, a sort of negative zone after the networks wrap up their big-ticket programming and before they launch their summer favorites. (Game of Thrones doesn't come back until July, so we can all chill, if not Netflix-and-chill, for another few weeks.) While a few favorites will make their long-awaited returns this month – good to see you again, Preacher! How ya been, Orphan Black? – there's no better time to investigate something new and/or more unusual. Say, a Florida noir touched up with ridiculous humor, or »

Kevin Bacon: ‘I thought I'd be sent to the TV graveyard’

20 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Footloose made him a movie star – but now he’s coming around to the joys of the small screen. Kevin Bacon talks marriage, falling victim to Bernie Madoff, and I Love Dick

Everyone knows the shtick about Kevin Bacon. You know, the theory that anyone in the entertainment business can be connected to him by, at most, six removes: the Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon. So, to take an actor at random, Dolly Parton: Parton voiced the animated film Gnomeo And Juliet along with James McAvoy, who starred in 2011’s X-Men: First Class, in which Bacon played the bad guy. It works even with actors from previous generations, such as, say, Gene Kelly: Kelly directed 1967’s A Guide For The Married Man with Walter Matthau, who appeared in JFK, in which Bacon played a crooked gay hustler.

Playback: Michael Rooker on ‘Guardians’ and the Evolution of Blockbusters and TV

18 May 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Two weeks into release “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2” is still killing it at the box office. One of the film’s stars and highlights, Michael Rooker, is back from traveling around the world promoting the film and he’s in our studio this week to discuss the Marvel phenomenon and more.

Between “Guardians” and AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Rooker has been exposed to a whole new set of fandom these last several years. He has certainly put in his time in the Hollywood blockbuster machine — witness particularly actioners of the 1990s like “Days of Thunder” and “Cliffhanger” — but being involved with these properties has brought him to a whole other level.

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

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

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

John WilliamsStar Wars

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

Pomeranz tells If she.s .doing a hell of a lot of research. in preparation for the chat.

.He.s such an interesting filmmaker,. she says. .Politics is embedded in his films and I think he does reflect the zeitgeist of his times like no-one else..

.I.m interested in the fact that so many of his characters are real-life characters, and in the fact he was brought up in a very conservative, privileged environment and has over the years become enormously critical of the United States, especially its foreign policy. With a focus on what America has does in Central and South America..

Oliver Stone’s ‘The Putin Interviews’: Why the Showtime Series Could Help the Legendary Filmmaker Get His Mojo Back

2 May 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oliver Stone and Vladimir Putin are a match made in heaven. Stone’s upcoming documentary series “The Putin Interviews” could be just the project to give the filmmaker’s career the shot in the arm in desperately needs. The director of iconic films like “Platoon” and “JFK” has never wavered from tackling challenging political stories, both documentaries and narrative features, but the results as of late have been lackluster.

“The Putin Interviews,” a four-night series airing on Showtime this June, could change all that. While Stone has always been an outspoken critic of governments around the world, the recent rise of issues like surveillance, hacking and cyberwarfare have made him even more energized,  and concerned, about current events.

“What’s going on right now is pretty shocking,” Stone said at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. »

Looking back at Oliver Stone's JFK

29 March 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Keeling Apr 19, 2017

Kevin Costner headlined an all-star cast in Oliver Stone's JFK. It was a film that led to an act of Congress being passed...

Oliver Stone’s epic conspiracy-thriller JFK, surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the case brought about by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison in relation to his murder, was released in 1991 to an astonishing level of critical backlash. Even before JFK arrived in theatres it was being pilloried and attacked by many in the media. The attacks were kick-started by Washington Post correspondent George Lardner, an investigative reporter who wrote a piece called On the Set: Dallas In Wonderland; How Oliver Stone’s Version Of The Kennedy Assassination Exploits The Edge Of Paranoia, which was actually based solely on a leaked copy of Stone’s first draft of the script.

Cuban-American Actor Tomas Milian, Italian Genre Movies Star, Dies at 84

24 March 2017 6:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Versatile Cuban-American-Italian actor Tomas Milian, known for the intensity he brought to disparate roles, whether in dramas by directors like Bernardo Bertolucci and Steven Soderbergh or as the Roman lowlife character that made him a household name in Italy, died Thursday. He was 84.

Milian died of a stroke in his Miami home, according to Italian news agency Ansa.

A Method actor who studied with Lee Strasberg, Milian played in about 120 movies during a career spanning six decades. Most of the films were shot in Italy, where he worked with directors Michelangelo Antonioni, Luchino Visconti and Pier Paolo Pasolini besides acting in Spaghetti Westerns, cop movies, and the franchise based on his Roman lowlife character “Er Monnezza” (“Mr. Trash”).

Later in his career, Milian moved to the U.S. where, among other films, he appeared in Sydney Pollack’s “Havana,” in Steven Spielberg’s “Amistad,” and played corrupt General Arturo Salazar in Soderbergh’s “Traffic, »

When Film Recreates History

16 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A comparative video pits reality against cinema.

When it comes to recreating history in film, the medium finds itself in a precarious position: on the one hand it needs to portray the events and people in question with some degree of accuracy, while at the same time, straight facts are for documentaries and narrative filmmaking requires a little more subjectivity and personal filtering for the sake of story. It’s a spectrum, this position, and one in which directors can lean closer to or further away from verisimilitude depending on their intentions. Oliver Stone is a good example of a director who does both: in films like Salvador, Nixon, or Snowden he leans towards historical objectivity; in films like World Trade Center, JFK, or W. he uses history as a basis for a more subjective study.

In the following, really quite cool video from our friend Vugar Efendi, scenes from films depicting historical persons and events — including »
