Blu-ray Feature: The 10 Best Blu-rays of 2012

11 December 2012 2:53 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s that wonderful time of year when we look back on the 11 months that just sped by and try to capture what was best, worst, overlooked, and more. While most of these pieces will just make people disagree, our annual cavalcade of year-end features starts with a piece that you can use to do your holiday shopping! These were the best Blu-ray releases of 2012, a year that saw a bit of a plateau in the technology but still produced enough quality to make a top 20 easy to produce.

First, a few notes.

Considering how easy it would be simply to make a top ten list that was comprised entirely of Criterion Collection Blu-rays, the tough decision was made to eliminate them entirely from contention. While it would be unfair to include them as they’d probably take up at least half the list, it seems just as unfair to ignore them entirely. »

David Fincher May Want Brad Pitt For 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, But The Project Is On Hold

18 October 2012 10:45 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

David Fincher and Brad Pitt clearly enjoy working together, but unlike the working relationship between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp . where the filmmaker will stick the star in just about any lead part, regardless of fit . Fincher only casts Pitt in the proper roles. While they previous collaborated on projects like Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the director didn.t bring him back for roles in The Social Network, Panic Room, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo or The Game. It.s now been four years since the two men last collaborated on a feature, and while it sounds like they.ve figured out when they want to work together next, it may be a while before we actually get to see the film. Variety has scored some inside information about the development of Fincher.s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea adaptation, and while the »

News Nuggets: New trailer debuts for 'Zero Dark Thirty'

12 October 2012 6:53 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Kris Tapley mourns cinematographer Harris Savides, who died at age 55: "I hadn't heard that cinematographer Harris Savides had been ill, certainly hadn't known that he was on the ropes, but he has apparently passed away at the far-too-young age of 55. I don't know the cause of death but I know this one's a big blow to the industry. Savides most often collaborated with filmmaker Gus Van Sant. He shot films like 'Finding Forrester,' 'Gerry,' 'Elephant,' 'Last Days' and 'Milk' for the director. But he also worked with David Fincher from time to time ('The Game,' 'Zodiac'), as well as Noah Baumbach ('Margot at the Wedding,' 'Greenberg'). His final work will be seen in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring,' which releases next year." In Contention Frank Ocean predicts success at the Grammys: "Next week, »

Harris Savides

12 October 2012 6:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Cinematographer at the forefront of digital experimentation and celebrated for his avant-garde work with Gus van Sant

The cinematographer Harris Savides, who has died of brain cancer aged 55, brought an evocative aesthetic to films made by some of the world's most adventurous directors. His goal was to capture what he called a "heightened reality" through a visual style that was understated to the point of being subliminal: "I don't think you can ever make a movie that looks amazing when you're trying to make it look amazing," he said.

Savides shot six features for Gus van Sant and collaborated with David Fincher, Sofia Coppola and Noah Baumbach. While directors frequently turned to him for a visual style redolent of 1970s American and European auteur cinema, Savides was at the forefront of digital experimentation. He shot Fincher's Zodiac (2007), the fastidiously detailed story of the real-life hunt for a serial killer »

Famed cinematographer Harris Savides passed away today. He was 55 years old. While Savides might not have been a household name, odds are that you’ve seen his work firsthand over the past decade and a half.

There are some filmmaking talents whose names are unlikely to be known by the wider movie-going audience. But those who harbour a deep, abiding love for the craftsmen and women who ply their trade behind the camera will be sad to learn that cinematographer Harris Savides has died aged just 55.Born in New York, he earned a degree in film and still photography from the School of Visual Arts and initially began a career as a fashion photographer.That led to the world of music videos and commercials, where he worked on such notable pieces as R.E.M.’s 'Everybody Hurts', Fiona Apple’s 'Criminal' and Madonna’s 'Rain'.From there, he moved to the cinema, launching his big screen cinematographic career with Heaven’s Prisoners. As directors he’d worked with on ads and music videos made their own switch to film, he collaborated with several, including David Fincher and Ridley Scott. »

R.I.P.: Zodiac and Milk Cinematographer Harris Savides Passes Away at 55

11 October 2012 12:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The impeccably talented cinematographer Harris Savides has sadly passed away at the age of 55.  You may not recognize the name, but you're no doubt familiar with Savides’ work.  He was the cinematographer on such films as Zodiac, Milk, Elephant, American Gangster, Whatever Works, and The Game, and he was responsible for now-legendary music videos like Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer”, Fiona Apple’s “Criminal”, and Michael Jackson’s “Scream.”  Savides crafted absolutely gorgeous images, from his incredible period work with David Fincher in Zodiac to the wonderfully understated nature of Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere.  His last film as a cinematographer was Coppola’s upcoming The Bling Ring. No cause of death was given, but Savides’ passing is a major loss for the film landscape.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends.  Hit the jump to remember some of Savides’ fantastic work. »
