The Seven Deadly Sins On Screen

8 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A new video looks beyond Fincher at the Evil Men Do

Sin, as defined by most major religions and moral institutions, is as old as man. It is inherent to our nature, because ultimately sin is self-serving, and at the end of the day we are all self-serving creatures. Wrath, pride, sloth, lust, envy, gluttony, greed — as opposed to the Ten Commandments of Christianity which include distinct acts like adultery and murder, the seven deadly sins are things of which most all of us are guilty of multiple times over. We’ve all committed them, even on a minor scale. Ever think someone has a nicer car than you? Envy. Ever gotten a touch of road rage? Wrath. Ever hit the snooze button more than once? Sloth.

These are petty examples to be sure, but they illustrate how commonplace the seven deadly sins are in our daily lives, and thus they prove why the seven deadly sins »

Anatahan (Josef von Sternberg)

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness. But a few times each year, cinephiles (at least »

Why Have I Never Seen SpongePulp FictionPants Parts 1 and 2?

23 April 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ok someone has to explain to me how I missed these.   For the life of me I have no idea how these SpongeBob and Pulp Fiction mashups got past me.   For those of you who weren’t aware an incredible well timed video came out in 2012 that pitted the “Bonnie Situation” scene from Pulp Fiction with an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants where the dialogue matched up timing wise as perfectly as you could imagine. It’s as if both scenes were literally made for each other.  These are those little “from the heavens of cinema” moments that make us all happy.

Paris – Uma Thurman is set to preside over the jury of Un Certain Regard at the upcoming 70th edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

“In a career spanning more than 20 years, the American actress has made some daring choices and enjoyed taking risks….Whether playing crazy, sexy or dominant, the woman whose namesake is the Hindu goddess of beauty and light has definitely entered the pantheon of movie greats, with several of her scenes attaining cult status,” the festival said in a statement.

The top 25 films (that people have seen more than 5 times)

19 April 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 20, 2017

What tend to be the highest rated movies, where the criteria is said films have been watched at least five times?

One aside in a recent piece I penned at this site questioned whether films such as The Shawshank Redemption – for some time ranked as the best film of all time by popular vote at the IMDb – were favoured amongst those who’d seen it more than one time. I was questioning whether the films we tend to salute as the greatest – rather than our favourites – are the ones we tend to watch time and time again.

In the same article, for instance, I highlighted Schindler’s List, an excellent film, but not one I see too many people watching on six monthly rotation. That doesn’t make it a lesser film, rather, it’s the kind of movie that I’d imagine most have seen once or twice at best, »

Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly)

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration. Sadly it’s been about eight years since a new »

The 25 most iconic movie entrances

16 April 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Keeling Apr 25, 2017

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...

One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.

There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, »

Series Mania: Damon Lindelof on ‘The Leftovers,’ Australia and Donald Trump

16 April 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — The third and final season of “The Leftovers” kicks off tonight on HBO. Anticipating its debut, Paris’ Series Mania TV festival opened Thursday with “The Leftovers’” first two episodes playing to an enraptured general public at its Grand Rex 2,800-seater art deco cinema theater. The show’s co-creator, Damon Lindelof (“Lost”), stars Justin Theroux and Christopher Ecclestone and composer Max Richter were in tow. Lindelof also delivered a masterclass Q & A Saturday night at Series Mania. Semi-impressionistic non-spoiler reviews of Season 3 have already been published. Here are eight pointers about the show from Paris at the beginning of the end.

1.Season 3, Episode 2

If “The Leftovers” had been in competition in Paris, Connie Coon, playing Nora – who lost her husband and two children in Season 1’s Departure, which saw 2% of the earth’s population inexplicably disappear – would surely be in the running for best actress. Here, she plays a woman of fierce intelligence still trying to find »

Mulholland Dr. And The Joy Of A Complicated Yarn

13 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Mulholland Dr. is getting a well-deserved re-release and that brings with it an opportunity to reflect again on its particular charms, including its complex, elliptical structure.

Mulholland may well be David Lynch’s masterpiece, though plenty will argue the same for Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Eraserhead, The Elephant Man or Inland Empire. The Elephant Man is definitely the most conventional and therefore the most readily accessible of his films, but there remains a particular satisfaction in getting to grips with Mulholland’s structure and thereby arguably getting more out of it than something with a more traditional through-line.

For the uninitiated (for shame!), Mulholland Dr. is about (as much as it is really about anything) a wide-eyed young actress arriving in Hollywood, meeting an amnesiac car-crash victim and getting caught up in a reality-bending story of film-making, brokenness, mutating identities and a strange blue box.

The First Trailer For The Hitman’s Bodyguard Delivers Action And Laughs

13 April 2017 3:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Imagine if Pulp Fiction’s Jules Winnfield got older, and grumpier, and had to get to a specific location while under fire from potential assassins. Then imagine that any pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds character had to get him there. That’s basically what we have in The Hitman’s Bodyguard and, to great surprise, it looks to be exactly the film you’ll need to give your summer a boost.

Directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3), The Hitman’s Bodyguard is the second script from Tom O’Connor (Fire With Fire), and boasts a wider cast that includes Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Gary Oldman, and Joaquim de Almeida (Our Brand Is Crisis). The premise is simple – the world’s greatest hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) needs to get to the International Court Of Justice alive, and the world’s greatest bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) has to get him there. Complications »

David Bowie and the Indestructible Metaphors of Mirror Scenes

11 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A video essay examines our most private moments.

Strap on your thinking caps for this one, film fans, because it’s a doozy.

According to director Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don’t Look Now, The Witches), mirrors are cinema in all its glory and in fact the essence of the medium. See, mirrors are the only time we truly look at ourselves; photographs of us are from other perspectives, for other people or posterity, and as such we don’t show our real faces in them, we show projections of who we think we should be or how we think we should feel in a certain situation. But the mirror isn’t public, it’s private, it is us alone with ourselves and thus the way we look into mirrors, into ourselves, is different from every other face we show the world.

The mirror is an eye, Roeg »

Great Job, Internet!: Watch classic movie scenes get totally ruined by bad sound effects

7 April 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Foley artists are doing god’s work. Essentially, their job is to reproduce the most minute and ambient of sounds in film, such as the click of a lock or the rustle of clothing. If they’re doing it right, you’ll barely notice. If they’re doing it wrong, it’s all you’ll be able to focus on.

Instagram account Bad Foley is interested in the latter. With each post, Bad Foley derails intense, emotional film scenes with wildly inappropriate sounds that make a mockery out of the action unfolding. Just listen to the plasticky squeaks as this Lost Boy rubs Robin Williams’ face in Hook:

How to Cook Pasta the ‘Goodfellas’ Way (And What Food Reveals About The Scorsese Classic) — Watch

6 April 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Film to Table” has been journeying through some of the great culinary dishes in film the last few weeks, recreating dishes from “Tompopo” and Jon Favreau’s “Chef.” This week, host and chef Jason Roberts is joined by comedian Brian Unger, as they cook up an Italian pasta dish made famous by Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas.”

Goodfellas” is considered by many to not only be one of Scorsese’s best films, but also one of the great cinematic achievements of all time. While cooking the meal, consisting of spaghetti and meatballs, Roberts and Unger discuss how food becomes such a pivotal element of the film, becoming a dual symbol representing two of the biggest themes found in Henry Hill’s (Ray Liotta) tale: family and power.

Movie Posters In the Age of the Internet

6 April 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

With the release of new ‘Free Fire’ and ‘Baby Driver’ posters, we ask: what role does a movie’s poster play in the digital age?Character posters for ‘Free Fire’ (Ben Wheatley, 2017).

Recently, Ben Wheatley, the director of the shoot-off thriller Free Fire, described the role of film posters in relation to the ‘whole package’ of cinema (i.e. from the film itself to its marketing strategy) and how this has changed in the digital age. At Creative Review, which showcased ten character posters created by Empire Designs to promote Free Fire, Wheatley said of this part of the package that:

“It’s interesting, over the last few years with the posters, the kind of received wisdom [was] you wanted an integrated campaign which was just one poster and you just hammer home that image. But the net has changed all that. So, certainly with High-Rise and now with Free Fire, there »

Call Of Duty: a cinematic universe is being planned

5 April 2017 9:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 6, 2017

The Call Of Duty videogames are heading to the movies, as Activision Blizzard eyes a Marvel-style cinematic universe.

Notwithstanding the fact that the games themselves are suffering from their strict adhesion to an annual publishing cycle, the Call Of Duty series of first person shooters nonetheless remain some of the most popular videogames on the planet.

It’s perhaps, then, something of a surprise that – until now – there’s not actually been a movie take on the series, not least given how cinematic many of the moments in the games are. You don’t have to look far to see the cinema influences, and this is has been something that’s been part and parcel of Call Of Duty since day one (or, going even further back, Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault).

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored.
