Watch: 3-Minute Supercut Retrospective Commemorating Best Picture Oscar Winners Of 1990s

12 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the awards season on the horizon, now is as good a time as any to look back on the movies that won favor with the Academy. Earlier this year, a supercut emerged highlighting the Best Picture Oscar winners of the 2000s, and now video editor Miguel Branco has turned his eye to the 1990s, with a fresh video celebrating the movies that defined a decade. And indeed, the 1990s seemed to mostly be defined by the epic drama, with "Dances With Wolves," "Braveheart, "Schindler's List" and "The English Patient" taking home Oscar gold. But the Academy took chances too, honoring Jonathan Demme's horror "Silence Of The Lambs," Clint Eastwood's western "Unforgiven" and Sam Mendes' "American Beauty" as well. Take a look a the full video below, and let us know if these winners still stand the test of time, or if you would have chosen differently. »

'Blood Meridian' deserves a director who understands the Western genre

30 July 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With James Franco’s recent test footage for his not-to-be Blood Meridian film adaptation now online, it’s time to think about what we want from a movie version of the landmark novel. Franco shot that test footage a few years ago and showed it to Scott Rudin, who owns the rights to the novel, but Rudin seems to have turned him down—and should continue to do so.

So Franco, instead, directed another movie adaptation of a Cormac McCarthy novel: Child of God. The movie comes out this week, and Franco wrote a piece for The Daily Beast explaining »

DVD Review: 'Unforgiven'

29 July 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Released to widespread critical and audience acclaim back in 1992, Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning revenge tale Unforgiven is fondly remembered as a valiant last stand by an American movie genre that had been slowly dying a death for decades. The West, as it transpired, had been well and truly won, despite several sporadic attempts to spur the old horse back into life (see Open Range, the Coen brothers' True Grit and, most recently, Quentin Tarantino's revisionist Django Unchained). Now, 22 years on from Eastwood's original offering, director Lee Sang-il presents Yurusarezaru mono (2013), a loose remake transposed to nineteenth century feudal Japan, with cowboys replaced by samurai. »

Bruce Springsteen Makes Directorial Debut With Short Film, Hunter Of Invisible Game

10 July 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is anybody alive out there? One … two … three … four! Okay, so impressions don’t come across too well when you’re merely writing it out – but I’m really excited about this little piece of news. That was a Bruce Springsteen gimmick earlier if you hadn’t already guessed, and, speaking of which, we are happy to report that the Boss is making news with his latest music video for the song Hunter of Invisible Game.

The New Jersey rocker has made his directorial debut alongside long-standing collaborator Thom Zimny (who worked on documentaries about the Born to Run and Darkness on the Edge of Town albums) with a 10-minute short film which takes its name from the song in question.

However, Springsteen is no stranger to the cinema and Hollywood – in 1993 he won an Oscar for his song Streets of Philadelphia, which accompanied the Tom Hanks drama, Philadelphia. He »

Slideshow: Morgan Freeman Honored by Gene Siskel Film Center

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | Next Morgan Freeman honored by the Gene Siskel Film Center, June 7th, 2014.

Chicago – The sonorous and familiar voice of Morgan Freeman was in Chicago on June 7th, 2014, as the Gene Siskel Film Center presented “A Candid Conversation with Morgan Freeman” to benefit the theater. The event, at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago, raised more than $350,000 for the Film Center’s programming budget.

The Academy Award winning actor – for “Million Dollar Baby” – is well known for his authoritative narrative voice and heroic presence in films such as “The Shawshank Redemption”, ”Deep Impact,” “Unforgiven,” “Seven,” “The Dark Knight” and “Last Vegas.” He began his career on stage and on the 1970s PBS TV show, “Electric Company,” and has built his resume after his 1989 roles in “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Glory.” He even recently had an animation voiceover role in “The Lego Movie.”

Liam Hemsworth & Woody Harrelson Head Out West ‘By Way Of Helena’

2 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hunger Games stars Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson will be swapping District 12 for the American frontier in new revenge western, By Way Of Helena.

The film follows 1880s Texan Ranger, David (Hemsworth) who rides out to investigate a series of murders in an isolated frontier town. However, it looks like local zealous preacher Abraham (Harrelson) is mighty suspicious of strange folk…

It sounds like fairly standard genre fodder, but Harrelson should be excellent (I can already hear his drawl) and if we’ve got a dodgy preacher, then hopefully we’ll have some of the moral ambiguity of revisionist westerns like Clint Eastwood’s brilliant Unforgiven.

The script is penned by Matt Cook, while Aussie actor and film-maker Kieran Darcy-Smith (The Cave, Animal Kingdom) will direct.

Jersey Boys

30 June 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Jersey Boys

Directed by: Clint Eastwood

Cast: Vincent Piazza, John Lloyd Young, Johnny Cannizzaro, Michael Lomenda

Running Time: 2 hrs 14 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: June 20, 2014

Plot: The story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, based on the Broadway musical of the same name.

Who’S It For? Eastwood fans to be disappointed, or music fans to be bored.

Overall

In my interview with Paul Haggis for his recently-released film Third Person, the former Oscar-friendly screenwriter brought something to my attention about his working relationship with Clint Eastwood, which I could have guessed, but didn’t know: with Haggis’ scripts like Flags of Our Fathers, Eastwood didn’t ask for any rewrites, and began shooting with a first draft. It explained so much, especially when I finally caught up with Jersey Boys. Eastwood’s stories are as strong as his scripts, his directorial ability to really influence a project as »

Interview: Writer/Director Paul Haggis Creates ‘Third Person’

26 June 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Not many Oscar winning screeenwriters change the course of their professional lives because of a dream (story below), but Paul Haggis is an exceptionally brilliant writer whose credits include “Crash” (2005) and “Million Dollar Baby” (2004) – which both won Best Picture – and his new film, “Third Person.”

Third Person” is about the life a writer, portrayed by Liam Neeson, and it is about the circumstances surrounding his life. The ensemble cast includes Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Maria Bello, Olivia Wilde, James Franco and Kim Basinger, all surrounding and inspiring Neeson’s character. This is the fourth film Paul Haggis has directed, among his many creations as a TV and film writer.

What Went Wrong with 'Jersey Boys'? (Video)

25 June 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's easy to see how Warner Bros. turned to their A-list director-producer Clint Eastwood, known for his calm, economic, unpretentious, methodical filmmaking, for the 60s period musical "Jersey Boys." After directing 37 movies, he can do period in his sleep, from "Invictus" to "Changeling,"--on a budget. He's a composer and jazz pianist who knows music (Cannes prize-winner "Bird").  "It's just a lot of good songs," he told Vanity Fair. "You go home humming a different one every night." And he's great with actors. The Tony-winning musical also had a good chance of being Oscar bait--likely to play well to the seniors in the Academy who have voted Eastwood movies many Oscars over the years, from "Mystic River" to Best Picture-winners "Unforgiven" and "Million Dollar Baby." But the movie looks bland and brown: while it may be accurate for the period, it's not »

Box Office: The Jersey Boys Fail to Entertain Audiences

22 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here with the weekend’s box office report. Every other article today is using the ‘boys versus men’ pun but not us. We will just stick to reporting. The Jersey Boys fell far behind Think Like a Man Too at the box office, barely edging out Maleficent for the fourth spot. Nathaniel described the Clint Eastwood musical as a film “low on entertainment value and low on colour” and audiences seem to agree with him. Since Eastwood kissed Western goodbye with Unforgiven, he’s tackled a lot of genres and themes to varying degrees of success, but a Jersey Boys musical surely felt like an adventure too far before it was even made.  

"Man" opened big. The "Boys" did not.

Weekend Box Office

01 Think Like A Man Too $30 New 

02 22 Jump Street $29 (cum. $111.4)

03 How To Train Your Dragon 2 $25.3 (cum. 95.1)

04 Jersey Boys $13.5 New Review

05 Maleficent $13 (cum. $185.9) Podcast

Edge is surprisingly good. »

Review: Jersey Boys

20 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Directing Jersey Boys is an interesting career choice for Clint Eastwood. Did he make the right choice?

Fans of the stage musical Jersey Boys may think so; at its heart, the film is true to the smashingly successful stage version. It's also a safe bet that fans of the Four Seasons (Google them, millennials) will like the movie, which features many of the group's hits.

But fans of the exalted filmmaker's best work may be disappointed. Of course Jersey Boys isn't meant to be another Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby or Gran Torino -- but even by the lightweight standards of crowd-pleasing musicals, Jersey Boys feels a bit empty.

A biography of the Four Seasons, Jersey Boys opens in mid-Fifties New Jersey, where teenage lead singer Frankie Valli (John Lloyd Young) and lead guitarist Tommy DeVito (Vincent Piazza), perform in New Jersey clubs with an early incarnation of the group, the Four Lovers. »

Dirty Harry vs. Clint Eastwood

20 June 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There are, you could argue, two Clint Eastwoods. One is the strong, near-silent type, the man with no name but a pair of Colt revolvers or a .44 Magnum, the lean avenging angel who asks if you feel lucky, punk, and would care to make his day. Whether he's a tough cop, a tough cowboy, a tough secret-service agent, a tough military man, a tough experimental-jet-fighter pilot or a tough racist old coot, the part is a variation on Eastwood's screen persona. His status as a macho icon was cast in »

Clint Eastwood: Spotlight on the Stars

18 June 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to go old school and take a look at a classic A-lister, and that happens to be one Clint Eastwood. Depending on your age, he’s either a director who used to be an actor or a childhood icon who’s now become a rather iconic filmmaker. Few could have reinvented themselves the way that Eastwood has, with this weekend’s release of Jersey Boys highlighting his directing skills in a whole new light than really ever before. He’s tried to do it all in Hollywood, you have to tip your hat to him for that. Eastwood has basically done it all in the business. He’s starred in franchises (the Dirty Harry series as well as The Man With No Name movies), acted in Best Picture winners, and directed them as well. Though one could legitimately make the claim that »

'Jersey Boys' stars marvel at Clint Eastwood's advice and their chance at big screen stardom

17 June 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - It goes without saying that Broadway actors are rarely able to reprise their roles in the movie versions of stage musicals they've starred in.  For every Anthony Rapp in "Rent," Rita Moreno in "West Side Story" or Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in "The Producers" there are countless other films that didn't even consider actors who played the same role on the stage.  Usually it's just too risky for Hollywood execs to fund a musical without some old fashioned movie starpower on board (it's still considered a risky proposition).   Don't tell that to Clint Eastwood, however. The Academy Award-winning director of "Million Dollar Baby" and "Unforgiven" did the unthinkable with his movie adaptation of the Tony Award-winning smash "Jersey Boys": he cast actors who'd previously played their roles in the stage musical in the movie. Well, three out of the four leads, at least.  "Jersey" features John Lloyd Young, »

Midnight Matinee (1989) Review

14 June 2014 7:52 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jennica Lynn, MoreHorror.com

Growing up in a small suburban town, the horror fan base was enormous but the festivities geared toward such a crowd were few and far between. The first ever horror film festival in my hometown launched when I was eighteen years old and, although I’ve attended many larger-scale festivals since, this one remains unforgettable. Not only did I get to meet a couple horror icons (there were only two in attendance) and view the works of young horror filmmakers, this festival was history in the making and I was there.

Unfortunately for the townspeople in Midnight Matinee (1989), their first horror film festival also made history… and they only wish that they could forget. But as far as the film itself, it won’t take me long to forget.

Released as a TV movie at the tail-end of the 80s slasher era, Midnight Matinee is »

George R.R. Martin: The Complete Rolling Stone Interview

On a cold night in January, George R.R. Martin sits inside the Jean Cocteau Cinema, a revival theater that he owns in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he has lived since 1979. The Cinema had been showing the first three seasons of HBO's megahit series Game of Thrones, which is based on Martin's still-in-the-works saga A Song of Ice and Fire. After viewing the ninth episode, "Baelor," in which the story's apparent hero, Ned Stark, is unexpectedly beheaded, with the screen falling to black, Martin sits quietly for several moments, »
