Honorary Oscars Will Go To James Earl Jones, Dick Smith, And Oprah!

3 August 2011 8:32 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Last night, the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to present honorary Academy Awards to actor James Earl Jones and makeup artist Dick Smith, and its Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award — which has only been awarded to 33 other people (three posthumously) — to philanthropist/talk show host/actress/producer Oprah Winfrey. All three awards will be presented at the Academy’s third annual Governors Awards dinner on Saturday, November 12, at the Grand Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center, an event that has come to mean nearly as much to true cinephiles as Oscar night itself. In addition to receiving tributes from family, friends, and colleagues on that evening, the three honorees will also be acknowledged during the actual 84th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, February 26, 2012.

Jones, 80, made his big screen debut playing a small part in Stanley Kubrick’s classic satire “Dr. Strangelove” (1964), and got »

A baseball movie All-Star team

12 July 2011 8:17 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Tonight is baseball's annual All-Star game and to honor the occasion The Wall Street Journal put together their own all-star team, a sort of fantasy fantasy baseball roster: the greatest fictional ball players in movie history.

You should go over and check out WSJ.com for the whole roster but I'll say this for the piece's author, the aptly named Jared Diamond: he put together a team with very few holes. There are obvious movie ball players that jump to mind: of course Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) will be the movie All-Stars' closer; of course Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) from "The Natural" will be in left field. But Diamond didn't forget the obscure choices either. He's got the legendary Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez (Mike Vitar) from "The Sandlot," and he even put the titular monkey from Matt LeBlanc's "Ed" as a utility player on the bench. »

The top 10 Fourth of July events in movies

1 July 2011 8:27 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The Fourth of July brought independence to the original thirteen colonies that went on to form the United States of America. But it also gave us countless holiday weekends for movie-going. Thanks to the Declaration of Independence telling the Kingdom of Great Britain to take a hike, Hollywood now has both a day to release movies and a day to stage iconic scenes.

From marching band performances to alien invasions, the Fourth of July has meant many things to many films, but the directors who know how to use it correctly have delivered some of the most indelible images of Americana to ever grace theaters. Here are ten of the most memorable Fourth of July events ever to take place in those films.

10. The big parade, "The Music Man" (1962)

It may not be normal to see a marching band with 76 trombones in a parade today. Back in 1912, however, when "The Music Man" takes place, »

Celebrate Summer With Our Favorite "Summer Movies"

27 May 2011 12:03 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer and the unofficial start of summer movie season. And when we say "summer movies" we typically mean the sort of stuff released during the summer: big, noisy, expensive blockbusters. But earlier today on his blog, Roger Ebert posted a great old episode of "Siskel and Ebert," where the guys, dressed in their wackiest Hawaiian shirts, celebrated what they called "the movies of summer." In other words, movies set in summer, or evocative of our own personal memories of summer.

True to form, many of their choices are deeply personal and highly eclectic: for example, instead of picking one of their classic beach movies, Siskel goes for Frankie and Annette's reunion movie "Back to the Beach." With my mind already on the warm weather, I thought I would chime in with a few more favorite "movies of summer." And following their lead, »

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick RulesZachary Gordon, Devon Bostick, Robert Capron

Sucker PunchEmily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm

Movie of the Week

Sucker Punch

The Stars: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm

The Plot: A young girl (Browning) is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility.

The Buzz: It’s certainly a great time to be a fifteen-year-old boy, isn’t it? It’s a shame I’m twenty years past my prime – Sucker Punch would have been 100% pure Pavlovian arousal for me back then. The batch of battling bombshells cartwheeling in all their gorgeously rendered video-game glory, coupled with the film’s flawless focus on, and impenetrable belief in, the great escape that can »
