Twitter Fires Back at James Woods’ Attempt to Expose Unnamed User

14 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Actor James Woods‘ attempt to sue an anonymous Twitter critic was met with a blistering response from the social media giant on Friday in a court filing much longer than 140 characters. In late July, the “Casino” star filed a defamation suit against a Twitter user by the name “Abe List” for referring to Woods as a “cocaine addict” during a political discussion Woods was engaged in with his followers. Woods and attorneys took their outrage to the Los Angeles Superior Court where the so-called “reckless and malicious behavior” was met with a $10 million damages price tag. Twitter, however, isn’t letting. »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Sharon Stone joins Running Wild

18 August 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Esx Entertainment has announced that Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct, Casino) has signed on to appear in the drama Running Wild, which is to be directed by Alex Ranarivelo (The Wrong Side of Right).

Running Wild tells the story of Stella Davis, a widow who saves her ranch by working with convicts to rehabilitate a herd of wild horses that wandered on to her property. Stella must fight prejudice, greed, bureaucracy and vanity – including her own – to finally understand that there is no better remedy to misfortune than helping another living creature. Stone will play the main ‘villain’ role, Meredith.

Principal photography on Running Wild is set to get underway this week in Napa, CA.

Video of the Day: Watch the Scorsese shots and scenes that ‘Boogie Nights’ paid homage to

18 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Despite having only seven feature films in his filmography, Paul Thomas Anderson has quickly become one of the most acclaimed filmmakers currently working. The rise of Anderson’s success can be traced back to his second feature film, titled Boogie Nights,  a fictional look at the porn industry during the 70s and 80s. One thing Anderson has never been shy about is noting and paying homage to his cinematic influences, with Boogie Nights carrying overt nods to the filmography of legendary director Martin Scorsese.

Now Vimeo user Jorge Luengo Ruiz has compiled all the shots and scenes from Scorsese’s various films that Anderson paid homage to and was influenced by in Boogie Nights and put them together in a video alongside the scenes that pay tribute to them in the film. Ruiz had this to say about the video.

Kevin Pollak Calls Chuck Lorre Killing Him Off on ‘Mom’ a ‘Bizarro World Honor’

10 August 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kevin Pollak on Monday addressed the killing off of his recurring “Mom” character, Alvin, calling the death-by-Chuck Lorre “a bizzaro world honor.” “As a character actor, the opportunity to do all sorts of things is a blessing and a curse,” Pollak told reporters during the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour panel for his new CBS sitcom “Angel From Hell.” “‘A Few Good Men,’ ‘The Usual Suspects,’ ‘Casino’ — that little three-year run wiped out 15 years of stand-up comedy and a couple HBO specials. However people discover you is how they know you.” He recalled drifting so far from his humorous roots. »

9 Bad Actors Who Have Recently Given Oscar Worthy Performances

10 August 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bad actors: sometimes you just have to wonder what they’re doing in movies in the first place. How they got there, how they continue to be employed and how Hollywood sees fit to carry on funding their lifestyles when there are undoubtedly far better performers out there that haven’t even made it yet.

But maybe Hollywood keeps the bad actors around for a reason – perhaps it’s the hope that, some day, they’ll manage to surprise audiences with a knockout turn, even if it’s just for that one time. Look at mumbling bruiser Sylvester Stallone, who gives the all-time greats a run for their money in Copland; or Sharon Stone, blowing all her other performances out of the water in Casino.

Stone received an Oscar nomination for her Casino role, the Academy at last electing to endorse the actress after a lifetime of below-par performances, perhaps »

Special Feature: Forgotten casino classics

6 August 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Movies set in luminescent casinos conjure up evocative mental images of bright lights or dark rooms filled with blackjack tables, roulette wheels and rolls of the dice. Just think of the Ocean's Eleven franchise, the Edward Norton and Matt Damon-starring Rounders or (of course) Martin Scorsese's Casino. Gambling movies can be like sports movies in the sense that it can be hard to convey on screen the sheer thrill of the game or give a sense of the rules in most cases - but they're not all like that. Here are a few that stand out for unique reasons of their own. While there's a strong possibility that you may have heard of at least some of these films, it's likely you haven't seen all of them. So, here's an introduction for the uninitiated - or a reminder to rewatch for casino movie aficionados.

Movie History Catalina Island Style

30 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A long time ago, sometime around 1912, a director by the name of D.W. Griffith packed up his filmmaking wares and took his crew, including favored cinematographer Billy Bitzer and star Mae Marsh, across the water to a relatively mysterious island off the Southern California coast to shoot a short film. The project, Man’s Genesis, subtitled A Psychological Comedy Founded upon the Darwinian Theory of the Evolution of Man (Is that Woody Allen I hear whimpering with envy?), isn’t one for which Griffith is well remembered, in the hearts of either academics or those given to silent-era nostalgia. (One comment on IMDb suggests that no one would ever mistake Griffith’s simple tale of a landmark of human development—man discovers his ability to craft and use tools in order to achieve a specific goal-- for “a serious work of speculative anthropology” and wonders “what the director and his »

Gambling Movies 101

9 July 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is ironic that people want to escape risk all the time but at the same time a large part of the populace is fascinated with gambling. The foremost example of this fascination is the spate of gambling movies which hit the screen every year. Some become part of pop culture, some win critical acclaim, and some set the box office on fire. But one thing is for sure: gambling aficionados watch them with great eagerness, sometimes in the hopes of catching a trick or two. Rain Man is one movie which comes to mind where the autistic lead character counts cards at a casino, but that one is not a gambling movie.

Now, there are different kinds of gambling. Some of them involve gambling as the main plot point while others have gambling going on in the background while the story takes its course. Casino is one example of »

Taylor Hackford Directing Robert De Niro’s Passion Project The Comedian

7 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert De Niro is so widely respected in Hollywood that he could really do anything he wants at this stage in his career. To the Oscar winner’s credit, though, he’s not rolling over and taking easy paycheck roles all the time – for years, De Niro has been pushing to get The Comedian made, with an eye to starring in the Art Linson-penned drama. And now, he’ll finally complete that passion project, having recruited Taylor Hackford to direct the pic.

De Niro will take on the role of a self-destructive, acerbic insult comic inspired partly by comedian Don Rickles (De Niro’s co-star in Casino). It won’t be the actor’s first time playing a professional funnyman – he took on the role of aspiring comedian Rupert Pupkin to widespread acclaim in The King of Comedy.

Scorsese’s return to the casino

2 July 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 1995 acclaimed director Martin Scorsese made one of his best loved films, the intense crime drama Casino. And earlier this year he revisited the casino format with a multi-million dollar advertisement for two Asian casinos that featured some seriously heavyweight names.

The Asian Las Vegas

Although Casino was based in the famous American gambling hotspot Las Vegas, his latest advertisement, which is entitled “The Audition”, travels much further afield by being filmed on location in Macau.

Macau is frequently known as being the Las Vegas of the East with its reputation for high stakes gambling in the many opulent casinos that are crammed into the tiny enclave on the southern coast of China.

Although recent reports have stated that Macau has actually overtaken Las Vegas as the world’s premier betting destination, the enclave has recently hit hard times with revenues falling due to corruption and the rise of online gaming. »

The Ultimate Gangster Collection: Casino Edition

The quality of the features offered in this selection lends well to the nature of the ultimate characterization. The films included in this selection are American Gangster, Scarface, Casino, Carlito’s Way, and Mean StreetsRidley Scott’s American Gangster may be an enjoyable romp, but it has tendencies of staggering under the weight of the film’s own perceived epic stature. The other four films, however, are bona fide classics, making this selection of movies an excellent primer for some of the best gangster movies ever committed to film.

American Gangster

In American Gangster, the real-life character Frank Lucas starts out as a quiet driver for his boss, but exploits an opening in the power structure when his boss dies to build his own empire, creating his own version of the American Dream.

Watch: Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas' In 6 Minutes

26 June 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Viewed today, perhaps the most impressive thing about Martin Scorsese’s electric mob picture “Goodfellas” is still its pace. This is one of the most relentless films of all time, and we mean that in the best possible way. “Goodfellas,” the story of the rise and fall of Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill, shoots like a beam of lightning cocaine through three decades of life in the mafia, chronicling the dizzying highs and gory lows of a gang of self-made “wiseguys” whose only dreams were to get as rich as possible, as fast as possible. The film is a recollection, sure, with its protagonist fondly recalling all the cars he used to boost, the heists he used to pull, and most certainly all the drugs he used to sell, inhale, and flush down the toilet. But for a two-and-a-half-hour cinematic nostalgia trip, it’s a furious one. Scorsese has made »

Mark Wahlberg: I dreaded the semen scene in 'Ted 2'

25 June 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Ted 2" is bigger than "Ted" in almost every conceivable way: Its slapstick scenes are wilder, the list of guest-stars is more staggering, and the runtime ticks closer to two hours. But the critical elements -- the wisecreacking CGI teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane, his "thunder buddy" camaraderie with John (Mark Wahlberg), and a dastardly performance by Giovanni Ribisi -- remain intact.  We caught up with Wahlberg, who phoned us from a UK press tour to talk about why he likes "Ted 2" better than the original. Here are seven things he taught us about the filming experience, the difference between Mila Kunis and Amanda Seyfried, and the most intimidating actors he's ever worked with.  1. "Transformers" made the act of talking to an invisible teddy bear a lot easier.  On filming with a CGI costar: "We definitely had on-the-job training with the first 'Ted.' Doing 'Transformers" made that a lot less nerve-wracking. »

The Films that have turned their on-screen successes into the online Casino market

23 June 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The graphics in films are outstanding, but the high-quality images used are not only on the big screen. The growing world of online Casino is able to replicate many successful films and maintain their impressive graphics on the small screen of your laptop or mobile. This hasn’t gone unnoticed in Hollywood, and they’ve commissioned many films to be available to play on online Casino – notably NetBet. Some of the most successful slots and progressive jackpot games in-fact are movie based, with their characters and plot stories being transferred into the games themselves. The following are four notable films that are a success in the online Casino world as well as their box office figures.

Basic Instinct

This 1992 American Thriller that saw a police detective (Michael Douglas) fall in love with a prime suspect of a murder trial (Sharon Stone) was one of the most successful films to be released in the decade. »

Interview: Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon of ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’

11 June 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In my second meeting with director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, I was struck by his almost child-like wonder regarding his breakout film, “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.” Gomez-Rejon bleeds celluloid, and loves films in every fiber of his being. To be able to contribute to the cinema universe is his greatest reward.

The film came out of the Sundance festival with the top jury prize and audience favorite awards, much as its predecessor “Whiplash” has done in 2014. The poignant film, about the effect a dying classmate has on a movie loving boy, is done almost as an allegory in so many aspects. Its success is a testament to director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who has worked his way upward in the film industry for years, under the auspice of mentors such as Martin Scorsese, Nora Ephron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

'Kill List' Director Ben Wheatley Lines Up All-Star Cast for '70s Thriller 'Free Fire'

9 June 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ben Wheatley, the British director behind "Kill List," "Sightseers," and "A Field in England," has begun filming on his first American-made project, "Free Fire," Deadline reports. The thriller, set in Boston in the 1970s and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, features an all-star cast with indie cred—including Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, and Wheatley regular Michael Smiley—which suggests that "Free Fire" could make a play for audiences beyond the art house without losing the critics who've supported Wheatley's ferocious, painstaking past work. In an interview with The Guardian last year, the director described "Free Fire" as an homage to "hard-boiled crime movies" from "The Big Sleep" and "The Asphalt Jungle" to "Reservoir Dogs" and "Casino"; the film stars Larson as a woman who brokers an arms deal between two Irishmen and a local gang, »

Sharon Stone Shows Lots of Leg at 2015 Tony Awards Viewing Party

Sharon Stone's still got it!  The "Basic Instinct" star attended the The Actors Fund's 19th Annual Tony Awards Viewing Party in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.  The 57-year-old beauty stunned on the red carpet wearing a black and white quarter-length-sleeved dress, which showed off her long legs in the sheer portion of the skirt.  Stone completed her edgy yet classic look with retro sunnies, a gold clutch and black pumps. Sharon styled her short blonde tresses parted to the side and sported minimal makeup for the night.  While the "Total Recall" star seldom makes public appearances these days, we've never seen the actress look better!  Stone likewise recently penned an essay for The Hollywood Reporter, where she shared her personal feelings about aging in Tinsel Town.  "I love it when people say, 'In Hollywood, you're not allowed to get older.' Really, who gives a sh-t what Hollywood thinks about anything? »

Did you eve watch Casino and find your self envious of the luxurious Hartland Mansion Robert De Niro’s Sam ‘Ace’ Rothstein called home. Well now, if you have a spare $3.5 million lying around, it can be yours as the extravagant Las Vegas property is now up for sale.
