Full disclosure: The Amityville Horror films do not make up my favorite franchise. And it has nothing to do with the central “haunted house” premise, but rather the execution of the series thus far, from the serviceable ground zero template, The Amityville Horror (1979) through the (as yet unseen) upcoming Amityville: The Awakening, with some stops in between at DTVville (not to mention the Ryan Reynolds remake; but I said not to mention, so not mention I shall). The name is so shopworn now that “Amityville” has become synonymous with “poopy”.
But, but, But…let’s rewind to a time when a follow up to the kind-of goofy James Brolin (and his glorious perm) starrer was actually anticipated. That film was a smash success at the box office, and the powers that be wanted to revisit the village of Amityville to see what other demons they could find in the basement. »

Giuseppe Tornatore’s ode to the Italian love of movies was a major hit here in 1990, despite being severely cut by Miramax. In 2002 the director reworked his long version into an almost three-hour sentimental epic that enlarges the film’s scope and deepens its sentiments.

Your average foreign import movie, it seems, makes a brief splash around Oscar time and then disappears as if down a rabbit hole. A few years back I saw a fantastic Argentine movie called The Secret in Their Eyes. »

Cecchi Gori Pictures, once an Italian production giant behind such films as Il Postino, Life Is Beautiful and Se7en, has made its first big move since declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy, filing a complaint on Wednesday against its founder, Vittorio Cecchi Gori, and former owners contending that rights to dozens of film properties, including Martin Scorsese's recently released historical drama Silence, a Scorsese documentary and Michael Mann's upcoming Enzo Ferrari, were fraudulently transferred. The company is now demanding a temporary restraining order and an injunction in a move intended to recover these assets.
In December, Cecchi Gori Pictures' new management described the »

2016 movies Things to Come (pictured) and Elle have earned French cinema icon Isabelle Huppert her – surprisingly – first National Society of Film Critics Best Actress Award. 2016 Movies: Isabelle Huppert & 'Moonlight' among National Society of Film Critics' top picks Earlier today (Jan. 7), the National Society of Film Critics announced their top 2016 movies and performances. Somewhat surprisingly, this year's Nsfc list – which generally contains more offbeat entries than those of other U.S.-based critics groups – is quite similar to their counterparts', most of which came out last December. No, that doesn't mean the National Society of Film Critics has opted for the crowd-pleasing route. Instead, this awards season U.S. critics have not infrequently gone for even less mainstream entries than usual. Examples, among either the Nsfc winners or runners-up, include Isabelle Huppert in Elle, Moonlight, Toni Erdmann, Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, and Lily Gladstone in Certain Women. French »

The announcement was made in conjunction with Thursday night’s premiere of Martin Scorsese’s historical drama “Silence” at the Directors Guild of America Theatre. Newly named CEO Andrew De Camara made the announcement, which formalizes Juul’s role at the Italy-based company along with reviving the Cecchi Gori brand.
Juul had stepped down as CEO at Cecchi Gori at the end of 2012 but company owner Vittorio Cecchi Gori asked him to stay on the executive producer to finish the work on “Silence.” He also closed a deal with Michael Mann setting up the Enzo Ferrari biopic as well as settling a Cecchi Gori lawsuit in early 2014 against Scorsese, claiming the director had breached an agreement to direct “Silence” as his next movie by first directing “The Wolf of Wall Street. »

And when it comes to Oscars — particularly the best picture category — they’ve amassed numerous nominations and wins, from their time at Miramax to The Weinstein Company, with Lion poised to be the 27th to-date.
Lion is up against some big threats in the best picture category at the 2017 Oscars, but The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg — this site’s namesake — lists it as a frontrunner. Other films in contention include La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Hell or High Water, Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Hidden Figures, Arrival, and Sully. If nominated, Lion — directed by Garth Davis and features the likes of Dev Patel and »
