Battlefield Surgery – Three Wounded War Movies

8 June 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Much like that it portrays, with the war movie there is always a thin line between success and failure. When dealing with such a hefty and complex subject matter, is one best suited to going on the offensive or holding back and forming a defensive line of conservatism? When dealing with real conflict involving real people, either by historical inspiration or factual invocation, are you making a drama or an action flick?

Regardless of which route one takes, this is a genre as susceptible to mediocrity and false hope as any other. Whether it be a great battle from history rendered obsolete by caricature or a teasing of genuine, shellshock events betrayed by insensitive thriller tropes, there will always be those that fail to hit the target when victory was so surely within reach. Intention is always undermined by incompetence.

Rather than look at the worst of the crop, Cinematic »

Bob Hoskins dead at 71: Hoskins’ best movies included ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit,’ ‘Mona Lisa’ (photo: Bob Hoskins in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ with Jessica Rabbit, voiced by Kathleen Turner) Bob Hoskins, who died at age 71 in London yesterday, April 29, 2014, from pneumonia (initially reported as “complications of Parkinson’s disease”), was featured in nearly 70 movies over the course of his four-decade film career. Hoskins was never a major box office draw — "I don’t think I’m the sort of material movie stars are made of — I’m five-foot-six-inches and cubic. My own mum wouldn’t call me pretty." Yet, this performer with attributes similar to those of Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, and Lon Chaney had the lead in one of the biggest hits of the late ’80s. In 1988, Robert Zemeckis’ groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which seamlessly blended animated and live action footage, starred Hoskins as gumshoe Eddie Valiant, »

R.I.P. Bob Hoskins, 1942-2014

30 April 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bob Hoskins, the celebrated English actor who brought gravitas and a wicked smile to any genre he worked in, from crime thrillers like The Long Good Friday to fantasy comedies such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Hook, died from pneumonia Tuesday. He was 71.

The actor claimed to have never taken any acting lessons – according to him, he was waiting at a theatre bar for a friend to finish an audition when someone gave him a script and said, “You’re next.” He scored the part at that audition and soon after, the short-statured Hoskins became a giant on the stage and screen, beloved by audiences around the world.

Hoskins appeared in various UK television series and mini-series during the 1970s, when he also found a calling on the British stage. However, the actor broke through on the big screen in the 1980s. His first major role was in the »

Bob Hoskins dies, aged 71: Tributes pour in for Long Good Friday star

Hoskins leaves behind an eclectic selection of film roles, having worked with filmmakers ranging from Steven Spielberg to Stephen Frears. Here are eight of his more memorable big screen roles...

The Long Good Friday (1980)

Probably the greatest British gangster film ever made, Hoskins delivered an explosive turn as Harold Shand, a criminal looking to refashion himself as a legit businessman. John McKenzie's film has stood the test of time exceptionally well, having contemporary resonance in Shand's plans to rejuvenate the London Docklands to make way for the Olympic Games.

Walking With The Enemy Review

24 April 2014 8:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By this point in time, it seems that every conceivable World War II story had been told – from South of the Border, made in 1939 about an American agent working to prevent Nazis from seizing control of Mexican oil fields, to this year’s Monuments Men, George Clooney’s ode to the men trying to preserve Europe’s cultural heritage. But still, nearly 70 years after it ended, the second world war continues to deliver material for Hollywood to sink its claws into.

Based on the somewhat amazing true story about ordinary Hungarians and their struggle to save the lives of thousands of Jews marked for death, Walking with the Enemy skates on old Hollywood charm of good guys versus bad guys, with both being easy to identify on sight.

Inspired by the real-life exploits of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum, a rabbi’s son from small-town Hungary, Walking with the Enemy shows the »
