The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

30 Greatest Gay Actors #11: Farley Granger

17 December 2010 10:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In a career spanning several decades, Farley Granger is known best for starring in Nicholas Ray’s classic noir romance They Live By Night and two Alfred Hitchcock-directed efforts with legendary homosexual subtexts, Rope and Strangers on a Train.

His first starring role in They Live by Night is considered by many critics to be one of his finest film performances. Set during the Depression, the movie chronicles the romance of a young couple trying to escape the small-town life of crime in which they have become ensnared. Granger’s sensitive portrayal of the bank robber Bowie caught the attention of Alfred Hitchcock. While preparing to shoot Rope a movie inspired by the notorious Leopold and Loeb murder case, Granger and co-star John Dall (whose homosexuality was also well known in the Hollywood community) were cast as two affluent young men, who set out to commit the perfect murder »

Channing Tatum to Star in The Contortionist’s Handbook

12 August 2010 6:12 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Does Channing Tatum have what it takes to become a serious actor? Up until now his filmography hasn't been particularly impressive, consisting mainly of drivel like Step Up, Fighting, Dear John and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, but he has also been taking on smaller roles in slightly more interesting movies such as A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Battle in Seattle and Michael Mann's Public Enemies. He's also starring in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire and Kevin Macdonald's The Eagle, and now this week we have news that he will be starring in The Contortionist's Handbook, based on one of Chuck Palahniuk's favourite novels. That's not all either... apparently he'll also be producing the movie too. Written by Craig Clevenger, the book is about a man named John Dolan Vincent who finds himself in and out of prison and hospitals thanks to drug addiction problems and his various criminal activities. »

Assembly Required: A Walter Murch Profile (Part 3)

11 August 2010 12:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of three time Academy Award-winning sound designer and film editor Walter Murch in the third of a five part feature... read parts one and two.

“I was interested to go back and look at the two films I edited, The Conversation [1974] and Julia [1977], which I had done “mechanically” – physically cutting the film itself,” mused the multi-talented Walter Murch. “I made the transition to “electronic,” – and started working on the Avid in 1995, I was curious to see if there was any difference between my mechanical and electronic styles. There wasn’t – in fact I was struck on how immediate the earlier films seemed. I would make the same editorial choices today.” The advent of computer technology in film editing has resulted in a couple of serious drawbacks for the craft. “When you actually had to make the cut physically on film, you naturally tended to think »

Their Best Role: Matt Damon

4 August 2010 6:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

His smile can light up the screen, but he keeps that in reserve. Approaching the age of 40, Matt Damon still looks as fresh-faced as he did when he first drew wide attention for his supporting role in Edward Zwick's Courage Under Fire, released in 1996. He conveyed great admiration for a certain character, even while suggesting a layer of doubt that hid below the surface. It was a fine role, but it wasn't his best.

He made a big splash the following year as a young lawyer in Francis Coppola's adaptation of John Grisham's The Rainmaker, and as a genius with issues in Gus Van Sant's Good Will Hunting. The latter, based on a script that he wrote with his good pal Ben Affleck, provided him with a showcase dreamed of by all actors, and earned him an Academy Award nomination. (He and Affleck won, instead, for their screenplay. »

There is no Miramax without the Weinsteins

9 July 2010 10:57 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Reports are frantic that the bidding for Miramax is almost over. A group of investors, which doesn’t include Harvey and Bob Weinstein, seems eager to get the once great company. Now Colony Capital, the group that is also co owner of Michael Jackson’s Neverland, is said to be in the mix. The total price Disney wants: $675 million.

But Colony’s very astute Thomas Barrack should understand something essential: there is no Miramax without the Weinsteins. The name is too closely identified with the brothers who named the film company after their parents. In the five years since the Weinsteins left Miramax and started The Weinstein Company, Miramax has lost almost all of its name value.

What are Colony and friends buying really? A library of 50 really great movies including Best Picture winners: Shakespeare in Love, Chicago and The English Patient. There’s also The Cider House Rules, »

Sherlock Holmes 2 to Begin Shooting in the Fall

6 July 2010 10:45 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Empire Online has some interesting news on Sherlock Holmes 2.

According to Dr. Watson himself, Jude Law, cameras will start rolling on Sherlock Holmes 2 substantially earlier than the mooted December start date.

Law revealed that principal photography will kick off in the autumn. “It looks likely that we’re going to shoot the second Sherlock Holmes in October,” he told Empire’s own Damon Wise, suggesting that Guy Ritchie and his writers aren’t too far off a completed script and some intriguing casting announcements.

On his own personal work schedule, Law said:

“I’ve had a long period of doing nothing, which has been self-imposed and wonderfully rewarding, I have to say, but mostly so because I’ve got a very busy second half of the year coming up. I’m working with [Martin] Scorsese on his new film Hugo Cabret, which I believe is his first film for children. »

[DVD Review] The Cry of the Owl

13 June 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

If the owl is crying, it’s because he had to sit through this awful film. Despite being based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley) this movie is a muddled mess. The book is likely much better; though it was worth adapting into film, sadly, it wasn’t adapted into a good film. Director/writer Jamie Thraves clearly has no idea what to do with Highsmith’s material.

The film is so dull that even director Thraves seems to lose interest and thus keeps changing the plot randomly. The film starts out with an interesting premise. A troubled man named Robert Forrester (Paddy Considine) going through a divorce from his beautiful wife Nikki (Caroline Dhavernas) seeks solace in a quiet, small town. He becomes obsessed with a woman named Jenny (Julia Stiles) who lives alone in a little house, occasionally visited by her boyfriend Greg (James Gilbert »
