It Came From The Tube: When Michael Calls (1972)

26 March 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A lot of great TV horror movies rely on a final image, a real shocker, to hammer home the fear. But not all of them. When Michael Calls (1972) is a telefilm that measures out its chills, leading to a logical conclusion (for a small screen sinner) instead of an iconic screen shot for nostalgic viewers. Regardless, this one provides a platform for a solid thriller with a pedigree behind and in front of the camera.

Originally broadcast on Saturday, February 5th, as the ABC Movie of the Weekend, When Michael Calls had the normal competition from CBS’ New Dick Van Dyke Show/Mary Tyler Moore Show and NBC’s Saturday Night at the Movies. But ABC’s Movies of the Week (on Tuesday’s, and here) almost always won out with viewers, providing exciting, original fare. This one is no exception.

Guillermo del Toro Analyzes David Fincher’s ‘Zodiac,’ Proves It’s One of the Best Films in ‘Recent Memory’

6 March 2017 7:07 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

March 2 marked the 10 year anniversary of David Fincher’s “Zodiac,” and numerous publications spent last week honoring the film as one of the great masterworks of modern cinema. But perhaps the best tribute came from none other than Guillermo del Toro, who spent most of the weekend tweeting up a storm about just how much he adores Fincher’s procedural drama. He ranked “Zodiac” #1 on his list of the best movies Fincher has ever made, saying he watches it “at least twice a year.”

Del Toro also launched an epic twitter thread in which he analyzed the movie in 13 tweets, bringing attention to the way it operates far more deeply than any film that has been released in “recent memory.”

“Every great movie works at many levels,” he wrote. “Some are evident: the dramaturgy (writing, plot, character, structure), image crafting and sound as storytelling tools, »

‘Seven’: How a David Fincher Mail Mix-Up Lead to the Legendary Ending

14 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Fincher’s 1995 thriller “Seven,” starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, has a shocking ending that almost didn’t happen due to a mail mix-up.

The cult classic was written by Andrew Kevin Walker, who at the time had optioned the script with “Christmas Vacation” helmer Jeremiah Chechik on board to direct. But Chechik had a different movie in mind and told Walker to rewrite the ending.

[Editor’s Note: Spoilers for “Seven” follow. Proceed at your own risk.]

The movie  as we know it ends with John Doe (Kevin Spacey) delivering Detective Mills’ (Pitt) wife’s head in a box. Walker’s reworked version didn’t include that scene. After Chechik moved on from the project, the original version of the script with the shocking twist accidentally landed in the hands of Fincher.

“[Fincher] expressed some interest [in directing], but in expressing his interest to them, had mentioned there was a head in the box,” Walker told The Hollywood Reporter. “And they were like, »

The Best Of The Best: The Greatest Movie Actors and the roles that made them great

13 January 2017 3:49 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

The prospective candidates for admission to MiB were hand-picked because they were the best of the best of the best. That’s a lot of superlatives. Eric Roberts and Chris Penn were two of the more unlikely members of a Tae Kwon Do team that took on Korea in The Best of the Best and across pretty much every athletic and artistic theatre of endeavour you can think of, debate rages as to who is the best of the best. Today we look at the greatest movie actors.

This new series of articles is not intended to lay such arguments to rest. Instead it will hopefully prompt some discussion and (polite) debate as we consider, within certain film-making disciplines, who might be considered to be the best and what is their best work. Highly subjective, of course, but that is whence springs healthy debate. We’ll get to actresses, »

Steven Soderbergh Lists Everything He Watched And Read In 2016

4 January 2017 6:41 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You’ve already waded through our year end coverage, and pored over your friends’ and family’s various lists on Goodreads and Letterboxd to see what they consumed across 2016, so what’s left? Well, Steven Soderbergh is taking his turn with his annual list of everything he watched and read during the past year, posted on his site Extension 765. And as per usual, it’s fascinating.

It seems that 2016 saw Soderbergh having a mini-David Fincher film festival, watching “The Social Network,” “Panic Room,” “The Game,” “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” “Fight Club,” and “Se7en,” but most excitingly, he’s also seen episodes of the director’s upcoming Netflix series “Mindhunter.” It really pays to be pals with Fincher.
