Mister Fincher and Monsieur Dreyer

27 July 2015 4:44 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.

21 July 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Kung Fu Killer starring Donny Yen, is the story of vicious killer Feng, who is going round Hong Kong killing top martial arts exponents, leaving a secret weapon called the Moonshadow as his calling card. When convicted killer and kung fu expert, Xia, hears of this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom. Despite their misgivings, the police release the former police martial arts instructor into their custody. With his help, they realize from the chronological order of the victims that the killer is targeting his victims, all the top masters in their martial arts style, following a martial code of training. When Xia also disappears after a close encounter with Feng, they suspect the worse: that the two are accomplices and Feng was the bait to help spring Xia from jail. But Xia has actually gone back to his home in Foshan »

American Cinematheque Has Dreamy 35mm Slate for July, From Pasolini to Fincher

9 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Celluloid is alive and kicking at the American Cinematheque this month, where a heavenly program of 35mm films will be presented across the various series happening at the Aero and Egyptian theaters. Friday launches the slate with the unlikely double bill of Pasolini's revelry of human suffering "Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom' and Russ Meyer's exploitation classic "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" Throughout the month you can brush up on your Jacques Tati with film prints of "M. Hulot's Holiday," "Mon Oncle," "Traffic" and "Playtime," which looks gorgeous on a big screen. There's also a David Fincher double feature, with "Seven" and "Panic Room," as well as Antonioni's often maligned but visually dazzling "Zabriskie Point," featuring that epic Pink Floyd soundtrack.

What’s Up Doc?: Wiseman Rises to New “Heights” & Rivers Shooting “The Two Eyes Are Not Brothers” in Morocco

6 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It’s been a surprisingly interesting month of moving and shaking in terms of doc development. Just a month after making his first public funding pitch at Toronto’s Hot Docs Forum, legendary doc filmmaker Frederick Wiseman took to Kickstarter to help cover the remaining expenses for his 40th feature film In Jackson Heights (see the film’s first trailer below). Unrelentingly rigorous in his determination to capture the American institutional landscape on film, his latest continues down this thematic rabbit hole, taking on the immensely diverse New York City neighborhood of Jackson Heights as his latest subject. According to the Kickstarter page, Wiseman is currently editing the 120 hours of rushes he shot with hopes of having the film ready for a fall festival premiere (my guess would be Tiff, where both National Gallery and At Berkeley made their North American debut), though he’s currently quite a ways away from his $75,000 goal. »

Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

4 July 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.  

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

'Apollo 13' 20th Anniversary: 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Tom Hanks Classic

30 June 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not all Hollywood blockbusters are about rampaging dinosaurs, time-traveling cyborgs or spandex-clad heroes.

Some big-budget movies get by just fine focusing on real-life moments of danger and drama. "Apollo 13" is one of those films.

Released 20 years ago today on June 30, 1995, here are 20 things you need to know about how director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks worked to deliver one of the best space movies in the history of always.

1. It may be one of the most iconic lines in movie history, but "Houston, we have a problem" isn't exactly what was said during the mission. Jim Lovell actually said, "Houston, we've had a problem." The edit was made for the film because "we've had" implies that the problem is over.

2. On that note, Jim Lovell wasn't the only astronaut to speak that famous line. Jack Swigert first radioed in with "Okay, Houston -- we've had a problem here. »

Chandan Roy Sanyal to do a Kevin Spacey in Jazbaa!

29 June 2015 10:28 PM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Talented actor Chandan Roy Sanyal's lean mean act in Kaminey is still fresh in the minds of the audience. And when we heard that Chandan has been chosen to play the bad man in Aishwarya's comeback movie, Jazbaa, we were naturally thrilled.

The shooting of Jazbaa has commenced recently in Mumbai, and to know the view of the man himself and the experience of working with Sanjay Gupta, we got in touch with Chandan, who told us, "Sanjay Gupta is a big canvas director and there is always an international look and feel about his films. The same holds true for Jazbaa."

When we queried him about his exact role, he said, "I always work hard for all the characters that I essay. Okay, let me tell you in brief, my role in Jazbaa is on similar lines as Kevin Spacey in Seven (1995)," concludes Chandan. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

8 big movies whose scripts dramatically changed

17 June 2015 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Con Air, Last Action Hero, Brainscan and Die Hard 4.0 could all have been very different films, going by the early drafts of their scripts.

The life of a Hollywood screenwriter might sound like a glamorous one, but it's not all premieres and champagne.

As one of the smaller cogs in an often complex machine, the writer can often find his or her work changed almost beyond recognition by other hands. Such is the case with the following movies, which were all changed quite drastically in one way or another between their original draft and their final cut.

Some scripts were pressed into service as sequels. Some began in one genre and wound up in another. Rather than put together an exhaustive list, we've chosen a few examples of the script changes that intrigued or bemused us most.

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

Chris Pratt's 'Jurassic World' Costars: He Liked to Work His 'Funk Pistons' By Dancing on Set

10 June 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Chris Pratt is more than just a pretty face with a good bod -- he’s got a personality (and dance moves) to match. Wonder what it’s like to work with him? Ty Simpkins, who co-stars with Pratt in the upcoming "Jurassic World," says the actor is a source of joy and energy for those he works with on set. "When you’re having a bad day, he’ll always cheer you up," Simpkins tells toofab’s Brian Particelli with a laugh. "You know, you’re just tired, [and] he’ll wake you up." When asked if Pratt broke out into dance often on set, Simpkins said, "Definitely. He said that he was working his 'funk pistons' and he started doing like high-knees and like squats and stuff and I was like, 'You're the weirdest person!' but in a good way." See some of those moves in the video above. »

'San Andreas' movie with Dwayne Johnson. 'San Andreas' movie box office: $100 million domestic milestone today As the old saying (sort of) goes: If you build it, they will come. Warner Bros. built a gigantic video game, called it San Andreas, and They have come to check out Dwayne Johnson perform miraculous deeds not seen since ... George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, released two weeks earlier. Embraced by moviegoers, hungry for quality, original storylines and well-delineated characters – and with the assistance of 3D surcharges – the San Andreas movie debuted with $54.58 million from 3,777 theaters on its first weekend out (May 29-31) in North America. Down a perfectly acceptable 52 percent on its second weekend (June 5-7), the special effects-laden actioner collected an extra $25.83 million, trailing only the Melissa McCarthy-Jason Statham comedy Spy, (with $29.08 million) as found at Box Office Mojo.* And that's how this original movie – it's not officially a remake, »

If you're claustrophobic in 'Wayward Pines,' blame Charlie Clouser

4 June 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you're any bit of a horror or hard rock fan, Charlie Clouser has already been in your rotation. Think, when your heart races a little more to the strains of the macabre theme to "American Horror Story," or if it's altogether stopped during this first season of "Wayward Pines." If Nine Inch Nails' "Downward Spiral"; or Marilyn Manson's solid '90s albums; or Rob Zombie, White Zombie, or select albums from A Perfect Circle, Killing Joke, Helmet or Puscifer have been in your spinlist, then Clouser has likely already left a mark on you. And if you've ever survived  a "Saw" series movie, then Clouser's compositions may still be floating through your veins. The writer-musician recently wrapped on scoring aforementioned Fox show starring Matt Dillon. Today, we exclusively premiere two of Clouser's score selections from the show -- "Climb Out" and "Leaking Oil" -- and discuss just »

What’s Up Doc?: Sheffield & AFI Docs Signal the Summer Fest Drought

1 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Well folks, after a rather long and brutal winter (at least for me here in Buffalo), we are finally heading into the wonderful warmth of summer, but with that blast of sunshine and steamy humidity comes the mid-year drought of major film fests. After the Sheffield Doc/Fest concludes on June 10th and AFI Docs wraps on June 21st, we likely won’t see any major influx in our charts until Locarno, Venice, Telluride and Tiff announce their line-ups in rapid succession. In the meantime, we can look forward to the intriguing onslaught of films making their debut in Sheffield, including Brian Hill’s intriguing examination of Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, The Confessions of Thomas Quick, and Sean McAllister’s film for which he himself was jailed in the process of making, A Syrian Love Story, the only two films world premiering in the festival’s main competition. »

Kung Fu Killer – The Review

27 May 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A martial arts instructor (Donny Yen) convicted of killing someone in a duel is released from prison by a tough as nails woman Police Lt. (Charlie Yeung) in order to help catch a serial killer, who is targeting master martial arts fighters.

A very simple setup leads to a multi themed action movie that is both old school kung fu and a post modern Valentine to the kind of action films that used to dominate Hong Kong film studios like Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest.

Kung Fu Killer is a fight filled action movie, and as you would expect the fight scenes are excellent, Donny Yen is probably the best martial arts actor in Hong Kong right now. It is also a police procedural with the Hong Kong police doing all the forensics and lead tracking and high tech surveillance we are now used to from Hollywood, European and Asian crime films. »
