14 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Seventy-six trombones play at the Hobby Center, Kenny Chesney rocks At&T Stadium, and Jane Austen (maybe) shows her sensible side. It’s this week’s 3-Point Plan: Texas. The Music ManThere’s trouble right here at Houston’s Hobby Center, where “The Music Man” is playing through May 17. “The Music Man” follows “Professor” Harold Hill as he cons his way into River City’s heart—though what he really wants is the heart of local spinster Marian the Librarian. Fans of “The Simpsons” will recognize the plot from 1993’s “Marge vs. the Monorail,” written by Conan O’Brien. Kenny Chesney in ConcertCountry mega-star Kenny Chesney sends hearts a-beatin’ and toes a-tappin’ this Saturday, May 16 at Dallas’ At&T Stadium.

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

20 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Laurie is a man of many talents, who ultimately cracked America with »

Alan Rickman: having a film career is a bit of a surprise

16 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The British actor-director revealed stories from Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood and his latest film, A Little Chaos.

Alan Rickman entertained a select audience in London last night with stories from nearly 30 years in movies.

Speaking on stage at the latest BAFTA: A Life In Pictures event, the actor-director revealed how his first exposure to film was at school with titles like Ealing comedy The Titfield Thunderbolt, before going to art school and encountering his first major influences: Antonioni and Fellini.

“But I don’t know that I thought this would be part of my life,” he recalled. “To be perfectly honest, having a film career at all is a bit of a surprise.”

After going to Rada at 25, Rickman established himself on stage and TV, and didn’t star in his first film until his early 40s. That film just happened to be the blockbuster action hit Die Hard.

A Little Chaos review: Kate Winslet leads Alan Rickman's period drama

15 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Alan Rickman; Screenwriter: Alan Rickman, Jeremy Brock, Alison Deegan; Starring: Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Ehle, Matthias Schoenaerts, Helen McCrory; Running time: 117 mins; Certificate: 12A

The famous gardens at Versailles provide the backdrop for this dewy-eyed period romance with Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, although they have to wade through a lot of mud before the flowers come into bloom. Alan Rickman directs in a laissez-faire style as well as playing a supporting role as the French 'Sun King' Louis Xiv who presides over their efforts to create horticultural perfection. It's the stuff of Sunday night TV drama, for winding down with tea and cake. Very civilised.

The problem is that Rickman had obviously hoped to get pulses racing with 17th-century mores creating a pressure cooker environment for landscape architect Sabine De Barra (Winslet) and the King's master landscaper Andre Le Notre (Schoenaerts) as they get to »

Why 'Effie Gray' Is a Box Office Also-Ran

5 April 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As soon as I saw "Effie Gray," I asked for an interview with the movie's writer-star, Emma Thompson. Nope. Not doing any interviews. The reason? Two copyright lawsuits waged against the Oscar-winning screenwriter ("Sense and Sensibility") and actress ("Howard's End") prevented her from talking about the film. She won both cases that charged her with plagiarizing other scripts about the same subject, the strange relationship between young Euphemia "Effie" Gray (Dakota Fanning) and her older husband, workaholic art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise, Thompson's husband). Neglected and unfulfilled, Gray falls in love with Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). In the specialty world, it seems, you're either a winner with a strong festival presence and marketing campaign behind you and possible awards attention ahead, or you're a small non-entity, a loser.

Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César.

Effie Gray – The Review

2 April 2015 8:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

In just a few weeks the multiplexes will give way to the big, brash Summer blockbusters. Too late for last year’s Oscars (in the Us at least) is this historical true-life romantic drama, which, oddly enough, shares several figures and settings from one of last year’s award nominees. Mr. Turner told the story of one of the nineteenth century’s most celebrated painters. Many of that film’s scenes were set at the prestigious  Royal Academy of Art, where the merits of different works were vigorously debated. One of the strongest voices was that of John Ruskin, fellow artist, historian, and critic. Now comes the story that didn’t make it into the Timothy Spall biopic, a scandalous tale concerning the marriage of Mr. Ruskin and the much younger Effie Gray.

At the film opens, the narration tells us of the courtship of now nineteen year-old Effie (Dakota Fanning »

Eat Drink Man Woman | Blu-ray Review

24 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With twelve features to his name, two of those winning him Best Director Academy Awards (Brokeback Mountain; Life of Pi), Ang Lee has become one of the most notable auteurs to achieve success within the studio system. While his 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility began a successful career in English language filmmaking, the Taiwanese director had already received two Oscar nods for Best Foreign Language film. Those include 1993’s The Wedding Banquet, premiering in Berlin, and 1994’s Eat Drink Man Woman, now available for the first time on Blu-ray, though it hasn’t enjoyed the same lasting reputation. After the film, Lee wouldn’t return to working in Mandarin until six years later (2000’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), so it represents a certain jumping off point for the director.

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30. Sense and Sensibility

Directed by: Ang Lee

Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »
