See the First-Ever Kiss Caught on Film, Dating All the Way Back to the Late 1800s

17 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

By now you’ve probably learned that the First Kiss viral video that was floating around the Internet last week was a fake. The clip of strangers kissing for the first time was actually an ad, but there were a pair of “strangers” making out for the camera back in the 1800s. Dangerous Minds recently called attention to the very first kiss shot on film, between two women circa 1872 to 1885.  Did we mention these Victorian-era women happened to be nude and were photographed by a convicted murderer? We’re talking about pioneering English photographer Eadweard Muybridge, whose studies of motion and projection led to the development of cinema as we know it. So how did this scandalous photoshoot come about? While the Victorians were extremely sexually prudish...

Vivian Kubrick, Stanley’s Daughter, Posts Photos of Her Young Life on the Set

11 March 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

As detailed at Dangerous Minds — and originally in this Reddit thread — Stanley Kubrick’s reclusive and estranged daughter Vivian has posted via Twitter a series of photos detailing her childhood in and around her father’s films. As Paul Gallagher at Dangerous Minds speculates, “The pictures may be viewed as a possible attempt at some form of reconciliation as Vivian has been allegedly out of touch with her family since joining the Church of Scientology in 1999.” Gallagher links to a Raw Story article, which has more: In fact, some knowledgeable folks have theorized that some of the pain that […] »

Michelangelo Antonioni on the Utility of Mystery

5 March 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Michelangelo Antonioni’s work is known for, in addition to many other things, a certain open-endedness in its exploration of theme and narrative. But, you may be surprised to learn that the writer/director could be a bit more on-the-nose in his scripts. At Dangerous Minds, Paul Gallagher references a 2005 interview in The Guardian with Peter Bowles, who plays a drunk partygoer in Antonioni’s Blow-Up. In the original script, he had a monologue that nailed the themes of the movie. However, before shooting, Antonioni decided to cut it. The actor, feeling the speech was “essential to the film,” confronted Antonioni, pleading […] »

Africa's 'Dust Devil' Ghost Town is Slowly Being Devoured by the Desert

19 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

If you've seen Richard Stanley's surreal, thought-provoking and experimental horror film Dust Devil (if not, seek it out; it's well worth watching), you no doubt remember the haunting, sandblasted landscapes of the abandoned Namibian mining town of Kolmanskop, where many of the film's key scenes were shot.   Photo: Jonas Kisselbach   While over two decades have passed, those deserted locations are still standing... though not for long, it seems; Nature has a way of taking back what's hers, and in the case of this eerie ghost town, the dust storms have been steadily consuming what's left.   Photo: Romain Veillon   Founded by German miners in 1908, Kolmanskop was once a thriving community, but in 1954, it lost its final battle with the constantly drifting sands once the last occupants deserted. Since then, it's been converted by the Namibian government into a tourist attraction, and is still sought out by photographers drawn to its incredible alien landscapes. »

5 Movie Educators That Were Actually Awful

18 February 2014 1:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Buena Vista Pictures

Movies about teachers are a dime a dozen. Every year the moviegoing public is treated to some flick or another about a hard-nosed educator that is just trying to reach these kids. They can range anywhere from “academically astute” to “criminally incompetent,” though we are often meant to be inspired by the courageous actions of these (mostly) fictional characters regardless.

Today, we’ll examine the lives of five educators who, within the world of their respective scripts, are considered outstanding contributors to the development of America’s youth. Unfortunately, the outlooks of America’s brightest seem a bit dimmer with these teachers at the helm.

Note: Any criticism listed in this article only pertains to the fictional characters represented in their respective films.

Trailer Watch: Lance Bangs’ Slint Doc, Breadcrumb Trail

17 February 2014 8:28 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Epochal post-rock pioneers Slint are the subjects of a new documentary, Breadcrumb Trail, by Lance Bangs. In 1991, the Louisville-based band made the now-classic Spiderland for Touch and Go and, just before its release, promptly disbanded. In the years since, the album has remained enormously influential, making its mark on math rock, post-hardcore and various other sub-genres with out-of-date critical sobriquets. As Ron Kretsch notes at Dangerous Minds, one thing pops out of this trailer: these guys were young when they laid down this thing! “So, how’d You change the world before you finished school?” he asks. Here’s director Bangs […] »

With movies such as “The Heat,” “Bridemaids,” and “Identity Thief,” Melissa McCarthy has seen a lot of success over the years. McCarthy new comedy is called “Tammy” and it look like it will be another top grosser for the famous actress. Her husband and comedian Ben Falcone directed the new film, as Warner Bros released the movie’s first teaser trailer. “Tammy” looks hilarious!! It’s the best use of Coolio’s “Gangster’s Paradise” since “Dangerous Minds.” “Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) thinks she is living a nice, steady life, until she loses her job and then learns that her husband has been unfaithful.

Melissa McCarthy is Tammy In First Trailer And Poster

12 February 2014 6:49 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s about to get all kinds of hot on July 2nd. Oscar-nominee Melissa McCarthy is Tammy in this hilarious first teaser, complete with “Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio featuring L.V. from the movie Dangerous Minds (1995).

Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it.

The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option – with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind.

But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.

Watch: David Lynch's Home Pregnancy Test Commercial & PSA About New York City's Rat Infestation

27 January 2014 2:16 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Sure, he's best known for his catalog of distinct, surreal and terrifying pictures, but David Lynch is a man of many artistic hats. He's a painter, musician, weatherman, coffee enthusiast, transcendental meditation advocate, nightclub entrepreneur and more. But sometimes you need a bit of pocket cash as you jump from endeavor to endeavor, and like so many before (and after) him, Lynch has sometimes found his working on commercials. A couple of Lynch's more intriguing sideline ventures have come to light over the last few days. First, Open Culture pointed us in the direction of the brief 1997 ad for a home pregnancy test (yes, really) that manages to be informative and yet still kinda creepy. And fitting with that spirit, a few years before, in 1991, Lynch got behind the camera for a PSA about New York City's rat problem, with Frederick Elmes ("Wild at Heart") lensing the spot that will definitely get under your skin. »

'Switched at Birth' Season 3 premiere: Changes abound in 'Drowning Girl'

13 January 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

With the return of "Switched at Birth" on Monday (Jan. 13) for Season 3, ABC Family's groundbreaking series finds itself in a world of change.

The biggest change? Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) are entering into their senior year at Carlton, which is undergoing some change of its own. After surviving the threat of closure thanks to the protest in Season 2, Carlton and its students are forced to face the reality of the slight victory and accept the plethora of new hearing students bused in after their under-performing schools were shut down. Things quickly escalate to "Dangerous Minds" territory when Daphne's English class erupts into a fight over reading aloud. It could veer into ridiculous and over-the-top territory, but it mostly worked in the premiere.

Carlton isn't the only place of change. There's a palpable shift in the Kennish-Vasquez home following Daphne getting caught blackmailing Senator Coto. John (D.W. Moffett »

Life Of A King Review

13 January 2014 10:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You have seen this story before, ad nausea. A gutsy yet compassionate teacher takes a job working at an inner-city school and inspires a cast of potential addicts and dealers into model students. He or she equips them with the tools to combat the danger in their lives through some sort of reformation, like poetry, sports or a spelling bee. We have seen these tales told on the big and small screens so often that we know their didactic formula by heart. And therein lies the problem. If we know exactly what a story is going to provide, there must be a hook to engage us in the plight of the characters – both the educator and his or her pupils.

There is nothing wrong with watching a group of misfits find purpose and overcome adversity, unless the writer and director does little to differentiate their story from better works that have come before. »

Watch: David Lynch's 1967 Student Film 'Six Men Getting Sick (Six Times)'

7 January 2014 9:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, sorry, that "Twin Peaks" news from yesterday seems like it was bunk, but here's a treat to make up for it: a blast from the past from David Lynch. Dangerous Minds has dug up the director's 1967 student film "Six Men Getting Sick (Six Times)." Made by the filmmaker during his days at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, the short is as mix of animation and sculpture (with Lynch making plaster molds of his face), and was shot in a hotel, with frequent Terrence Malick collaborator Jack Fisk helping with the 16mm stop motion production. And as you might expect this thing is pretty surreal and weird and totally Lynch-ian. Take a few minutes and watch below. »
