Beauty Break: "I like thinking about the red dress..."

12 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

50 years ago today Marnie (1964) hit movie theaters and, as quite a divisive picture in the Hitchock filmography, ended one of the most beloved perfect runs that any filmmaker has accomplished in the history of ever  (1958-1962: North By Northwest, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds).

So Marnie has a bad rep, posts about her don't get you riled up like other Hitchcock fests, and she's underseen today. Not to lovingly kick that crazy bitch while she's down but it occurred to me the other day when she popped into my head that Marnie's color phobia means she would never be able to see an Almodóvar picture. Her loss. And she would be absolutely terrified by Sara Goldfarb addictions in Requiem for a Dream. (I mean more terrified than the rest of us) 

I like thinking about the red dress. And the television and your father."

@Marvel

Filmmakers, cognitive scientists and other special guests will come together for a unique two-night exploration into the science of how movies move us, discussing how filmmaking has evolved to carefully shape the mental and physical responses of audiences.

Wilfred, Ep. 4.03: “Loyalty” isn’t always so easy when it comes to family

4 July 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wilfred, Season 4: Episode 3 – “Loyalty”

Written by Keith Heisler

Directed by Randall Einhorn

Airs Wednesday nights at 10 on Fxx

While Wilfred doesn’t always take its titles head-on and through to their natural conclusions in the space of 20 minutes, “Loyalty” is an episode that manages to balance the ongoing mystery plot of the series’ final season with strikingly honest commentary on the concept of loyalty. This is done, of course, in a very Wilfred way, so as to not come off heavy-handed or preachy. Thus, we also get a running C-plot like Wilfred’s addiction to cuddling and his relationship with a certain toy that he eventually uses not in the way it is meant to be. This is probably the kind of stuff viewers who occasionally tune into to Wilfred enjoy seeing instead of the Wilfred mythology, which is fair enough. It’s certainly grotesquely funny (and has tons »

Scared Stupid: Marlon Wayans talks A Haunted House 2 and the Spoof Genre

29 June 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sits down with Marlon Wayans to discuss his upcoming movie, A Haunted House 2

The original movie was panned by many critics and its sequel, A Haunted House 2, hasn’t fared much better. But that hasn’t stopped Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie) from producing his brand of humour for his audience.

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sat down with Marlon Wayans to discuss A Haunted House 2 as well as the spoof genre in general and how its changed over time.

Tell me about A Haunted House 2.

It basically picks up where the first one left off, Malcolm escapes and now he has a new family and they move into a new house and the same old stuff happens. Spooky stuff starts to happen and there is a creepy doll. And his crazy ex-girlfriend moves in next door!

Why did you make A Haunted House 2? »

Video: A young Jennifer Connelly auditions for 'Labyrinth'

23 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Today, Jennifer Connelly is a Hollywood A-lister: She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2001 for A Beautiful Mind and has starred in a number of other critically acclaimed films, including Requiem for a Dream and Blood Diamond.

Back in the 1980s, however, well before achieving said A-list status, Connelly was a little-known actress. One major film that put he on the map: Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth, also famously starring David Bowie.

The film tells the story of Sarah (Connelly), a 15-year-old who wishes her baby half-brother, Toby (Toby Froud), away to Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie). Sarah, who »

Exclusive Interview with ‘Stoplight’ Director Eric Stanze

16 June 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Eric Stanze is someone that I have known for some time now, maybe almost a decade. He has always been someone I have looked up to when it comes to independent filmmaking. The Scare Game, The Fine Art and Savage Harvest were the first truly independent films I rented on VHS. Stanze’s films introduced me to the world of B-Movie.com which was run by Salt City Home Video, a company that is still in business today under Sub Rosa Studios, which left quite an impression with me in my formative teenage years as a budding horror film fiend.

In this day & age, independent genre films seem to be getting more buzz than what you see at the mulitplex. This is good news for Eric as he has worked very hard for his art and the time is now for him to benefit from it. This is just my »

The Truth Is Discovered In The New Trailer For The Giver

5 June 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You’d be forgiven for feeling a little weary with regard to young adult sci-fi literary adaptations making their way to the big screen. While once we were awash with angst-ridden vampires and werewolves, we are now adrift in a sea of teen dystopia, as studios attempt to capitalize on the success of The Hunger Games. But – though films like Ender’s Game, The Host and Divergent are all beginning to blur into one, long hormonal rebellion – don’t turn in your multiplex member’s card just yet. The legendary Jeff Bridges is about to shake things up with The Giver – a sci-fi film that has just debuted a great new trailer.

The Big Lebowski’s very own Dude produces and stars in this adaptation of Lois Lowry’s novel of the same name, which was first published in 1993. It features a young boy named Jonas, who lives in a utopian society, »

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Margaret Atwood's 'MaddAddam' Trilogy Into Series For HBO

4 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Darren Aronofsky has signed on to produce an HBO drama series adapted from Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam book trilogy, and could also wind up directing the project.

Darren Aronofsky Producing 'MaddAddam' Series

Aronofsky has a three-year first-look deal with HBO, which was made in January of this year. Through his Protozoa Pictures company, the director is looking to bring Atwood’s Orya and Crake (2003), Year of the Flood (2009) and MaddAddam (2013) to the small screen, reported Deadline.

Aronofsky became interested in the idea of adapting Atwood’s “speculative fiction” novels after it was brought to him by his fiancé, producer Brandi-Ann Milbradt. Milbradt will serve as co-executive producer alongside Aronofsky, who’s recruited his longtime collaborator Ari Handel to the project as well.

Atwood’s trilogy takes place in the mid-21st century in the time before and after the Waterless Flood, which causes the world’s population to shrink dramatically. »

New The Giver Trailer: Meryl Streep Rules in Black and White

4 June 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Weinstein Company has released a new The Giver trailer for director Philip Noyce’s (Salt) adaptation of the beloved Lois Lowry book.  The sci-fi thriller takes place in a utopian society where all memories of the past reside with a sage figure known as “The Giver”.  Jeff Bridges plays the titular character and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) plays a young boy who has been selected to be the new Giver.  This is the first trailer to actually make the film stand out from the similarly themed Hunger Games and Divergent franchises (which is ironic, since Lowry’s source material predates both), as it appears that Noyce is keeping the black and white aesthetic from the book—at least at the beginning of the film.  The clip also gets a boost from Clint Mansell’s Requiem for a Dream score, but overall I’m now a bit more interested in seeing what Noyce has put together. »

Jared Leto Rumored to Star in Doctor Strange

4 June 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday, we received word that Sinister director Scott Derrickson was in talks to direct Marvel's upcoming Phase Three movie, Doctor Strange.  The comics focus on a talented, arrogant surgeon Stephen Strange, who shatters his hands in a car accident, and believes that by learning the mystical arts he can heal his crippling injury.  He eventually becomes the "Sorcerer Surpreme", the protector of our world against magical threats.  There are so many talented actors out there that could fit Strange's look and personality, but Marvel is rumored to be looking at a controversial choice. Hit the jump for more. According to Badass Digest's Devin Faraci, "Marvel likes (or liked, I don't know what the current status of this is) Jared Leto for Stephen Strange."  Faraci adds, "God help us all if that's true." I'm inclined to agree.  Leto has stayed quiet since winning a slew of awards, including the Oscar, for »

Answers to Can You Guess All The Moviesc Take Four!

It seemed like almost as soon as I posted this latest "Guess the Movies" installment Andre Marques had all the answers. That said, he was the only one that guessed that got them all and so I have no problem saying I think this was the most difficult installment yet and you'd better believe the next one will be even more difficult, though I will post that one closer to the middle of the week rather than on a Friday so I can keep closer tabs on your progress and get involved a little bit more. So, with that I bring you all the answers to the graphic and I'd also like to give a shout out to One Perfect Shot as each screen capture was from recent posts on their site, a great place to keep an eye on once a month or so. Now, if you want to »

Top Ten: The Aughts

28 May 2014 8:49 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Last year I was throwin' up quickie top ten lists for each decade for archival and discussion purposes and tonight wI realized that I'd never finished the run skipping the Aughts and the 1920s and the 1910s (the latter two because I'd hoped to see more silent films before top ten'ing it). So herewith a revisit / rework of a "best of the aughts" list originally published in 2010 but many of you have joined us since!.

Care to share yours?

01 Moulin Rouge! dir. Baz Luhrmann (2001)

The party of the decade. The inspired mashup conductor (Baz) and his darling stars (Nicole, Ewan, Jim) put on the messiest craziest livelest funniest tearjerking "Spectacular! Spectacular!" show on earth. I'd never claim it's a perfect movie but flaws are endearing when you love madly and deeply. and Love Is All You Need.

02 Brokeback Mountain dir. Ang Lee (2005)

A love story for the ages. And one that quietly enrages. »

Digital Release Date: July 15, 2014, Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 29, 2014

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: Paramount Home Entertainment

Russell Crowe (Robin Hood) takes on a mission of biblical proportions in action adventure movie Noah.

Crowe plays the titular character, who’s tasked by God to build an ark before a massive flood is set to cleanse the world.

Known for such stylized and gritty films as Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, director Darren Aronofsky helmed Noah with an all-star cast. As well as Crowe, the movie includes Jennifer Connelly (Creation), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman), Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock), Emma Watson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2), Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Kevin Durand (Real Steel).

The PG-13 film grossed a tidy $100.6 million, but it scored much higher with critics than moviegoers. Noah received 77% approval from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, »

Fargo Recap: Parable for the Course

14 May 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For a show with such flare for the gloomy and grotesque, this week’s Fargo sure missed a golden opportunity for Lester’s oozing hand to reap some serious Requiem for a Dream­–worthy tragedy. Or, at the very least, justify a couple more close-ups of what’d been festering underneath all that lamely applied gauze and Neosporin. After all, we’d already witnessed canine bloodletting and hammered-in brains, among other macabre and mischievous gore, so why the tease?Speaking of that ball-peen Lester used to pull an Unfaithful on poor, nagging Pearl (welcome back, Kelly Holden Bashar!), Deputy Solverson came oh-so-close to finding its original hiding spot behind that blasted washing machine. We’re not entirely sure what tipped her off, besides a delirious Lester — en route to the hospital to drain and clean out his shrapnel wound — rattling on about Pearl washing towels and assorted peripheral details of that fateful day. »

Watch: Explore the Spirals & Symmetry of Director Darren Aronofsky

9 May 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Previously, we brought your attention to a visual essay looking at the themes of social anthropology in the various films of auteur director Darren Aronofsky. Running through Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Black Swan and the recent Noah were all profiled in the essay, explaining that Aronofsky's films contain "a visual mapping that demonstrates the anthropological study of cultural continuity." Now this time another visual essay puts the spotlight on Aronofsky's predilection for using spirals and symmetry in his films to create some of the most gorgeous shots you've ever seen on the big screen. However, be careful where you watch, because there's definitely some Nsfw nudity. Watch below! The visual essay on The Spirals and Symmetry of Darren Aronofsky from Vimeo (via Film Stage): This is a great compilation of some of the most beautiful shots crafted by Aronofsky, and a great comparison of »
