Film Review: ‘Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau’

24 February 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks is given blow-by-blow chronicling in “Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau.” The creation of the H.G. Wells’ story’s third official screen incarnation was beset by disasters even more bizarre than the delirious mess of a feature finally released in 1996, with stars Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer reportedly rivaling even Mother Nature as destructive on-set forces. Though not so imaginatively packaged as another recent unmaking-of docu, “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” David Gregory’s pic can hardly help but fascinate with its mix of archival materials and surviving-collaborator testimonies. A hit at genre fests, the pic should do well in specialized cable sales and home formats.

Writer-helmer Stanley was an Aussie horror/sci-fi prodigy who’d attracted favorable fan notice with modestly budgeted thrillers “Hardware” (1990) and “Dust Devil” (1992). A fan of Wells’ tale since childhood, he was »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Holding Out For a Heroine: On Being a Woman and Loving Star Wars

19 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a little girl in possession of a good imagination must be in want of a heroine. At least, this was the truth of my childhood. Like many people of my generation, my early pop culture intake was a healthy mix of Disney (this included an extensive library of worn-out VHS in the classic white plastic clamshell packaging), Saturday morning cartoons (from DuckTales to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Japanese imports repackaged for North American kids (Power Rangers, Speed Racer). But my one true love was science fiction. And anyone familiar with my work on this website could probably guess that this love begins and ends with Star Wars. Or really, it begins with Princess Leia.

I don’t remember my first viewing of the original trilogy; it exists in my memory as a constant presence. And like any healthy child weaned on TV and movies, »

Arrow: Doug Jones to play villainous metahuman Deathbolt

19 February 2015 12:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Oliver Queen is about to face his first bona fide metahuman villain in the shape of Doug Jones’ Deathbolt…

It was only a matter of time, we suppose, until the superpowered metahuman mayhem of The Flash started seeping into Arrow. Central City and Starling aren’t that far apart, after all. Although some would argue there was something a little super about Arrow’s version of Solomon Grundy in season 2, the show’s first iron-clad metahuman baddie will come in the shape of Doug Jones’ Deathbolt.

Deathbolt is the supervillain persona of Jake Simmons, who has been knocking about the comic book universe since 1983. Now, he’s been mildly reimagined as a metahuman with ‘the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy.’ He will pop up soon in season 3 episode 19, titled Broken Arrow.

Although it’s not confirmed that the Central City particle accelerator explosion will be the cause of Deathbolt’s powers, »

Doug Jones cast as Deathbolt in Arrow

18 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Oliver Queen’s skills are going to be put to the test by his first super-powered villain this season, with IGN reporting that Doug Jones is set to appear in Arrow as Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt.

Making his debut in 1983 in All-Star Squadron #21, Deathbolt was the result of an experiment by the Ultra-Humanite, which left him with several metahuman abilities, including the power to absorb and manipulate electricity.

Jones has previously comic book experience, having played Abe Sapien in Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy movies, as well as the Silver Surfer in Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He also appeared as ‘Thin Clown’ in 1992’s Batman Returns.

9 female movie characters who upstaged male heroes, from Speed to Skyfall

7 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The nominations of both Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) established a trend in this year's selection of Best Actress at the Oscars.

Both roles initially seem secondary to the male hero in their respective films (Ben Affleck's Nick in the former, Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking in the latter), but gradually come to take over the story in their own right. Here's our pick of nine further films where a heroine usurps her male counterpart.

M, Skyfall

Women usually get a raw deal in Bond films, so much so that the leads are dismissively referred to as 'Bond girls'. But the casting of Judi Dench as M from 1995's GoldenEye onwards went some way to redressing the gender balance - and by her final outing in Skyfall, she had almost become the protagonist in her own right.

Remembering Actress Simon Part 2 - Deadly Sex Kitten Romanced Real-Life James Bond 'Inspiration'

5 February 2015 7:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine' 1938: Jean Renoir's film noir (photo: Jean Gabin and Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine') (See previous post: "'Cat People' 1942 Actress Simone Simon Remembered.") In the late 1930s, with her Hollywood career stalled while facing competition at 20th Century-Fox from another French import, Annabella (later Tyrone Power's wife), Simone Simon returned to France. Once there, she reestablished herself as an actress to be reckoned with in Jean Renoir's La Bête Humaine. An updated version of Émile Zola's 1890 novel, La Bête Humaine is enveloped in a dark, brooding atmosphere not uncommon in pre-World War II French films. Known for their "poetic realism," examples from that era include Renoir's own The Lower Depths (1936), Julien Duvivier's La Belle Équipe (1936) and Pépé le Moko (1937), and particularly Marcel Carné's Port of Shadows (1938) and Daybreak (1939).[11] This thematic and »

The Dissolve The Voyage of Time Terrence Malick's forthcoming film will have two versions. One with Brad Pitt's voice and one with Cate Blanchett's.

10 Awesome Fan Theories That Would Improve The Batman Films

3 February 2015 6:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Batman was actually first given the “film” treatment as far back as the 1940s. 1943 and 1949 both saw 15-chapter film serials released starring the Dark Knight and then, in 1966, Adam West reprised his role from the joyfully camp television series for the first theatrically released Batmovie. Popular as it was, it would then be more than twenty years before another was released.

1989 brought the first of Tim Burton’s two Batman movies – and the first of those that most people are familiar with today. Batman Returns followed it in 1992, with Joel Schumacher taking over directorial duties in 1995’s Batman Forever and 1997’s Batman and Robin. Eight years later Batman Begins, the first of Christopher Nolan’s brilliant The Dark Knight Trilogy, was released, with The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises following in 2008 and 2012 respectively.

All of those films have fairly definitive conclusions, but fans like to »

Transform your iPhone 6 into Tim Burton's Batmobile

3 February 2015 5:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If you're looking for the coolest alternative iPhone 6 case, this may be the ticket.

This new case is a mini-replica of the Batmobile seen in Tim Burton's Batman and Batman Returns, and it's frigging awesome.

It costs around £40 and comes complete with Led lighting and a Bat-Signal projector.

The Home Button is covered with Batman's utility belt, while the camera can be accessed using pop-out front wheels.

It may be ridiculously silly, but it's just the kind of iPhone 6 case that Bruce Wayne would use. Well, the George Clooney version if nothing else.

Questions raised by Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

2 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What kind of Catwoman did Anne Hathaway turn out to be in Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises?

“I am Catwoman: hear me… make you question things, a bit”

Some confusing events can only be fully dealt with and understood with time. And so, three years later, it finally feels safe to look back at Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and some of the questions you may have found yourself pondering in the cinema at the time.

Before going in and finding your seat, the questions were along the lines of: can Anne Hathaway pull this off? Will her performance stop the recurring nightmares about Halle Berry’s attempt? How will this film even work without the Joker? You got your answers on those – the nightmares will never stop – but here are some Qs we’re still struggling with…

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Oscar nominee Michael Keaton says he's ready to get reacquainted with one of his iconic roles. With buzz building for a possible follow-up to Beetlejuice, director Tim Burton's 1988 horror-comedy in which Keaton memorably starred as a manic, demented spirit alongside costars Winona Ryder, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin, Keaton tells People he's excited about the prospect of reuniting with Burton, who also directed him in two Batman films. "I hope," says the Birdman actor. "We don't know yet." Asked what he found exciting about reteaming with Burton at this point in their respective careers, Keaton says simply, »

Emotions run high at Santa Barbara tribute to Michael Keaton

Santa Barbara — Saturday night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival shook things up a bit with the annual Modern Master Award tribute, this year dedicated to "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. Colleagues and co-stars sent pre-recorded messages to honor the actor, emotions ran high at the end of the evening and the fest had a special surprise in store for moderator Leonard Maltin as well. First, the retrospective. It was a typical deep dive into a career, the highlights of which you can read in our recent series of interviews with the actor. Keaton was clearly overwhelmed by seeing things in this context as his "Multiplicity" co-star Andie MacDowell was on hand to present an introductory clip package of career highlights. "I feel like I'm gonna pass out," he said as he took the stage to begin the evening. Maltin noted Keaton's first scene from "Night Shift," as we hear the »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. Sense and Sensibility

Directed by: Ang Lee

Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »

Michael Keaton says he was lucky to be a part of Batmania

28 January 2015 10:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton has been asked about a sequel to "Beetlejuice" enough times to surely be sick of it by now, because the thing has moved at such a glacial pace there just isn't much to be said. But his work in the original film came at a time when his career was really taking off, and playing in the expressionistic world of Tim Burton in both that film and the first two "Batman" movies was a wholly new and exciting experience for him. In one, he helped build a character from the ground up, while in the other, he found himself at the center of a raging pop culture tempest. Both roles are iconic in their own ways, and looking back, Keaton can — as ever — find nothing but gratitude for getting to be a part of it. "Batman" in particular was a personal landmark, a movie that grabbed »
