TV Review: ‘Transparent’ Season 4 on Amazon Prime

19 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s Emmy Awards provided a potent reminder of how fickle voters can be. After collecting multiple statuettes in key categories over its first few years, Amazon Prime’s “Transparent” got shut out in 2017. What once seemed as buzzy as a TV show can get has cooled off, as if the snubbed third season was indication of a show past its peak.

But diehard fans of Jill Soloway’s acclaimed dramedy can take heart in its fourth season: “Transparent” is as strong as it’s ever been, judging by the 10 episodes the streaming service released Friday.

A good chunk of this year’s episodes take the Pfefferman clan to Israel, where the baggage they unload doesn’t stop at Ben Gurion Airport. Three generations of Pfefferman get to squabble when Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) discovers the father (Jerry Adler, who played Hesh Rabkin on “”The Sopranos”) he was told had died is actually alive and very well »

The Sopranos’ Kathrine Narducci joins Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman

20 September 2017 6:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman is picking up some steam ahead of its production, with Deadline reporting that the film has now added actress Kathrine Narducci to its cast.

The film is based on the true story of the disappearance of Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa. Robert De Niro will portray Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, a hitman for the mob who was allegedly involved with Hoffa’s disappearance and murder. The story itself is based off the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt which is based on Sheeran’s confession to the author and details the events leading up to Hoffa’s disappearance.

Narducci is known for her role in The Sopranos and will reunite with De Niro for the first time since their 1993 film A Bronx Tale. Also featuring in the cast are Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Bobby Cannavale, Jack Huston, Stephen Graham and Ray Romano. »

Goodfellas at The Tivoli Midnights This Weekend

17 September 2017 5:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“One day some of the kids from the neighborhood carried my mother’s groceries all the way home. You know why? It was outta respect.”

Goodfellas plays midnights this weekend (September 22nd and 23rd) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. Admission is $8. 

Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas is 27 years old, but I don’t think there’s been a better mob movie since. This movie does a terrific job showing the flash and allure of being a successful mobster (the cash, the respect, the twisted sense of family) and then the dark and dirty side – the graft, lies and ferocity. Ray Liotta’s fall is as rough as his rise is seductively entertaining (think Scarface, only a whole lot better) and it’s punctuated by brutal acts of violence.

Overall, a great movie; features an immersive soundtrack, half the supporting cast of The Sopranos, »

Chicago – Frank Vincent always looked good, no matter what role he was playing, but he mostly portrayed mafia types, and was styling as those guys as well… he even wrote a book on dress, “A Guy’s Guide to Being a Better Man.” He was best known as Phil Leotardo on the legendary HBO series, “The Sopranos,” and he passed away at age 80 in New Jersey on September 13th, 2017.

He was born in Jersey, and started his career as a musician, until he began acting in 1976, making his premiere in a low budget gangster film, “The Death Collector.” That appearance caught the attention of director Martin Scorsese, who cast Vincent in “Raging Bull.” That led to a TV and film career portraying mobsters and tough guys, but Vincent stood out because of his sartorial splendor. »

Everwood Turns 15: The Creator, Stars Recall Braving Freezing Temps to Deliver the Pilot's Emotional Fight

16 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s been a decade and a half since Everwood‘s premiere — today marks the show’s 15th anniversary — but the pilot’s pivotal father-son argument is still as raw and powerful as ever. And it still stands out for creator Greg Berlanti and stars Treat Williams and Gregory Smith for being as frosty off-screen as the characters’ relationship was on-screen.

During the filming of Andy and Ephram’s emotional screaming match, in which the latter exclaims that he wishes his father had died instead of his mother, “it was probably negative 30 degrees,” Berlanti says. Williams remembers it as a “very, »

Frank Vincent obituary

14 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor involved in grisly on-screen violence in The Sopranos and in Scorsese films including Goodfellas and Raging Bull

Martin Scorsese’s 1990 gangster drama Goodfellas opens with a bang. Three mobsters are driving at night when they hear a persistent thudding. They pull over and warily open the boot. Inside is Billy Batts, the man they thought they had killed, wrapped in blood-soaked tablecloths and pleading for his life. Armed with knife and gun, and bathed in an infernal red from the vehicle’s rear lights, the hoods finish what they started. The unfortunate Batts was played by Frank Vincent, who has died aged 80.

A flashback later in the picture, which shows what Batts did to warrant such an unhappy end, gave Vincent the catchphrase that followed him around for the rest of his days. “Go home and get your fucking shinebox!” he tells the volatile Tommy (Joe Pesci), a former shoeshine boy, »
