The Importance Of Doubting Tom Screens Sunday at The St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase

12 July 2016 8:28 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Importance Of Doubting Tom screens Sunday July 17th at 6:30pm at Landmark’s The Tivoli Theater as part of the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase. Ticket information can be found Here

Local actress and filmmaker Vanessa Roman presents her years-in-the-making feature debut The Importance Of Doubting Tom, a romantic screwball comedy set against the backdrop of a dart league. It tells the story of Gwen, who is shaken and confused by a recent breakup from the guy she thought was the one, but something doesn’t seem right. In searching for the truth, mixed identities, comic hijinks, and lover’s games ensue in this. Roman based her original script both on the classic Oscar Wilde play, The Importance of Being Earnest and on her experience playing darts at St. Louis’ own Blueberry Hill, which is where she met her husband John.

Roman has assembled a first-rate cast and crew »

Christopher Walken Talks Career and That 'More Cowbell' Sketch

13 May 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For a while, Christopher Walken felt like "troubled guys" were the only types of roles he was being offered, and he knows when it began. "In Annie Hall, I played a suicidal guy who drives his car into traffic," he says in his matter-of-fact, stilted, utterly Walkenesque way. "Then in The Deer Hunter, which came immediately afterward, I shot myself in the head. I was playing these disturbed people. That might have been when that started." When asked if that bothered him, he plainly says, "Listen, I'm lucky."

The Enigmatic Terrence Malick

8 May 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the UK release of Knight of Cups this weekend, Neil Calloway looks at a unique directing talent…

Terrence Malick has directed seven films since his debut with Badlands in 1973. That might not seem like many, but when you factor in the fact that between the release of Days of Heaven in 1978 and The Thin Red Line in 1998 he didn’t make a single film, he’s got quite an impressive work rate.

Despite so few films being made, his influence on other film-makers is huge. When Malick’s The Tree of Life was released, Christopher Nolan spoke of his influence on his own films. While that’s hard to see, it’s undoubtedly true that Malick’s films has influenced many writers and directors. True Romance is Tarantino’s homage to Badlands, David Gordon Green’s work shows his influence. Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood contains very Malickian scenes, »

Exclusive Q&A: Andrew Bowen on Playing a Quirky Killer in the Horror Anthology Holidays

18 April 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Some of the biggest days on the calendar are viewed through a dark lens in the new horror anthology Holidays. Featuring a plethora of intriguing characters, one of the film’s standouts is Andrew Bowen’s performance as Reggie: an unconventional serial killer looking for his next victim on New Year’s Eve. Following Holidays’ world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival (and VOD debut) and ahead of its April 22nd theatrical release, we caught up with Bowen for our latest Q&A feature.

Andrew, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your excellent work in Holidays. What attracted you to this film and the role of Reggie in the “New Year’s Eve” segment?

Andrew Bowen: Thank you so much! It was such a cool project to work on. I got involved after my friend and producer Gabriella Lugo (who produced [the] “Christmas »

Giveaway – Win True Deception on DVD

15 April 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of True Deception – available on DVD 25th April – we have a copy to giveaway.

A stellar ensemble cast of James Franco (127 Hours), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Amber Heard (The Danish Girl), and Christian Slater (True Romance) stars in this semi-autobiographical story about a writer’s obsession with his own past and a real-life murder case. An unnerving thriller packed with stunning performances, shock twists, and psychological tension.

Director Pamela Romanowsky has also done a fantastic job in her feature debut, crafting a film that’s equally dark and complex as the source book, Stephen Elliot’s acclaimed memoir ‘The Adderall Diaries’.

With its flashbacks and non-linear narrative, True Deception will have you second-guessing Elliot’s story every step of the way and promises to be one of the year’s most psychologically affecting thrillers. Not to be missed.

Exclusive Q&A with Night People Writer/Director Gerard Lough

15 April 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Two thieves tell each other eerie stories to pass the time in Gerard Lough’s Night People, a new anthology film hitting VOD on May 9th. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Lough to discuss the making of his directorial feature film debut.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Gerard. When and how did you first come up with the idea for your new film, Night People?

Gerard Lough: Anthology films were very much a fixture of my childhood at Halloween, as they always seemed to be shown on TV at the time and I always liked the idea of getting three stories for the price of one, each of them with the fat trimmed off, that would hit the ground running. Anthology shows were also very much on the go at that time but seemed to die out, so »

Contest: Win Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ On Blu-Ray

5 April 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” is more or less a greatest hits compendium of all the filmmaker’s cinematic affinities: the mistrust and game of show-and-tell featured in “True Romance” and “Inglourious Basterds”; the chamber drama qualities and lack of a true hero in “Reservoir Dogs”; the Western sensibilities of “Django Unchained” and “Kill Bill 2”; and the issues of race that have permeated his pictures throughout his entire career. Read More: Ranked: Quentin Tarantino's 50 Best Characters For “The Hateful Eight,” Tarantino added themes of American identity as well as wintry elements of John Carpenter’s “The Thing” and the musical signature of his frequent composer Ennio Morricone, all shot and presented in glorious 70mm. The film, Tarantino’s eighth, recently hit Blu-Ray and DVD ,and we’ve got copies of the Blu-Ray to give away.

The Extraordinary Ordinary: 15 Films That Have Influenced ‘Midnight Special’ Director Jeff Nichols

17 March 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The films of writer-director Jeff Nichols are all about characters, ordinary men and women pushed to the limit by forces outside of their control. Again and again, Nichols trains his eye on the themes of family, its bonds and hardships: his films often about not only what it means to be a father, but also what it means to be a son or daughter. The setting is usually classically American small towns and back roads, where a person can look up at the sky and find an ocean of stars. Under those stars, Nichols lets his dramas —Mud, Take Shelter, and Shotgun Stories — play out, some darker and more bloody than others.

His newest film, Midnight Special, is out this week in limited release. Its plot follows a father forced to go on the run with his young son, a boy possessing mysterious powers, to escape a team of ruthless government agents. »

Great Romantic Movies (Without the Stuff That Make You Hate Romantic Movies)

13 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This Valentine's Day, you could stick with something traditional. You could check out that rom-com you and your partner have been meaning to check out. You could watch The Notebook and try very hard not to cry. You have your fair share of standard, go-to romantic options and there's nothing wrong with that. Or you could try something a little different. How about a romantic movie that finds time for gunfights? Or films that find intimacy and tenderness through perverse comedy? Or even something that will let you and your partner live vicariously through another couple as they solve mysteries as a duo? Yeah, you have additional options for sure. True Romance The title of Tony Scott's True Romance initially reads like it's going to be ironic. However, the...

TV Shows That Brad Pitt Surprisingly Appeared On And the Clips to Prove It

8 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Brad Pitt is one of those guys who was just born a superstar. He has been acting since his youth (as you will come to see here) and has appeared on far more mainstream TV shows than we think most people are aware of.  When you think of Brad Pitt, you think of a movie like World War Z or True Romance, but you rarely associate him with things like the sitcom. Well guess what? Brad Pitt has been on everything from Growing Pains to Friends. Here are five TV shows Brad Pitt has been in at some point on

The Great Digital Film Festival: Quentin Tarantino's 10 Greatest Female Characters

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.”

Quentin Tarantino took Jean-Luc Godard’s quote to heart, populating his blood-splattered films with some of the most iconic female characters in the last twenty-five years. There’s almost always a female lead or, at the very least, a villain.

Quentin's next movie, The Hateful Eight, isn't any different. Early press for the film has raved about Jennifer Jason Leigh and her performance as Daisy Domergue. So get ready for Tarantino’s eighth film with “Bang Bang” byNancy Sinatra and a celebration of the badass babes that have defined Quentin Tarantino’s filmography.

Who is Tarantino’s greatest female character?

 

 

10. Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) - Pulp Fiction

Amanda Plummer’s Honey Bunny is a watered down version of the Mallory Knox (Juliette Lewis) in Oliver Stone’s Tarantino-penned crime satire, Natural Born Killers. Honey Bunny isn’t quite »

Naomi Watts Set To Reteam With David Lynch For Twin Peaks Revival, Tom Sizemore Also Cast

2 February 2016 7:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More than a decade ago, David Lynch handed Naomi Watts a chance to make a name for herself by headlining Mulholland Drive opposite Laura Elena Harring; one psychedelic script and a breakout performance from Watts later and the rest is history. Now, Deadline reports that the actress is primed to reunite with Lynch for Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival, with Tom Sizemore (True Romance, Black Hawk Dawn) also cast in season 3.

No word yet on who exactly Watts and Sizemore will be portraying come early 2017, though fans of the original supernatural mystery series can take solace in the fact that David Lynch is set to reprise his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole. Other key cast members at the time of writing include Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried.

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Koyaanisqatsi,’ ‘The Shining’ Remix, Agnès Varda, Coen Brothers & More

28 January 2016 8:28 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of the Moving Image

Koyaanisqatsi kicks off “See It Big! Documentary” on Friday. Saturday brings the follow-up, Powaqqatsi, as well as Robert Flaherty‘s Louisiana Story. Close out Reggio’s trilogy with a Sunday screening of Naqoyatsi.

Labyrinth screens on Sunday, but is currently listed as being sold-out.

Quentin Tarantino – Ranking His Films From Worst To Best

16 January 2016 1:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WhatCulture

There aren’t many directors like Quentin Tarantino. He burst onto the scene in the 1990s with a pair of unprecedented features, carried on through into the 2000s with bold and visually impressive films that looked to build upon his fanboy cinephilia, and is now making the sort of grand, American epics (in the proper sense of that word) you’d expect of a director of this talent approaching his mid-50s.

And now The Hateful Eight has finally dropped. After years of script leaks, stage readings and standard Quentin Tarantino stunt-pulling, the film has arrived in theatres; complete, in some, with an overture and an intermission and shown in “glorious” (the now-standard term) 70mm celluloid where possible. Reviews have been mixed-to-good, but one thing remains: there isn’t much that can trump the excitement arrival of a new Qt movie in cinemas.

With that in mind, let’s »

Best of Late Night TV: Fallon Sings With Billy Joel and J.K. Simmons, Amy Landecker's Humiliating Don Cheadle Story

7 January 2016 3:57 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Billy Joel was on "The Tonight Show" and, of course, The Piano Man sat at the piano to sing us a song. Jimmy Fallon jumped right in and they sang the Rolling Stones's "Beast of Burden" together. Fallon's Mick Jagger impression is still on point. Of course, Jimmy wouldn't be Jimmy if he didn't ham it up, and he went Full Jagger and got the audience to join in.

However, topping that is this impromptu performance of "The Longest Time" from Billy, Jimmy, Billy's band, and actor J.K. Simmons -- this was just during a commercial break as they shot some local promos:

Margot Robbie's Favorite Sex Scene Of All Time

6 January 2016 4:16 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We all have our favorite movie sex scenes, from the erotic to the hilarious, and as actors are usually rather big film fans, they.re not above having their own. Margot Robbie, star of DC.s upcoming super villain team up Suicide Squad, has a particular favorite, which she just revealed. The star of movies like The Wolf of Wall Street, Z for Zachariah, and Focus is one of the actors featured in W Magazine.s February 2016 issue, and when asked, she revealed her favorite sex scene goes down in True Romance. The 1993 Tony Scott-directed, Quentin Tarantino-penned crime drama is more known for sharp wit and violence than eroticism, but there is a memorable sexual encounter, and it involves a phone booth. The scene in question takes place shortly after the quickie nuptials between Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) and Alabama Whitman (Patricia Arquette). From the aforementioned phone booth, »

Video: Nine Actors Whose Careers Got a Big Boost from Quentin Tarantino

6 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »
