J.J. Abrams & ‘Arrival’ Scribe Turning ‘Your Name’ into Live-Action Film for Some Reason

28 September 2017 8:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer-director Makoto Shinkai's hit anime Your Name is one of Japan's best-performing films ever made with a total worldwide box office of over $355 million. It's the 4th highest-grossing film in Japan itself, 7th among animated films worldwide, and #1 when it comes to anime, having taken over the spot from Spirited Away. Though it only took in about $5 million on domestic shores, Your Name clearly became an international sensation. That's unsurprising considering that the film is a touching drama, an engrossing romance, and a heartfelt comedy, but it is surprising since … »

How ‘Coco’ Was Influenced by ‘John Wick’, ‘Spirited Away,’ and Mexican History

28 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In Pixar’s Coco, the Land of the Dead is a stunning piece of animation, embedded with tiny pinpricks of light scattered throughout precarious towers of houses stacked upon houses. And springing out of this land are luminescent bridges made of marigold, bridging the way from the Land of the Dead to the Land of the Living. […]

20 Years Back: Celebrating the Cinematic Delights of 1997

12 August 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe celebrates the cinematic delights of 1997…

1997. It doesn’t feel that distant but we’re now talking 20 years. This was the year I left school. That officially makes me old as fuck I believe. Lady Di passed, Tony Blair became Pm, Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule, Mike Tyson had a Holyfield Ear pie and more. The Spice Girls reigned supreme. Hanson were Mmmbopping all over the place and confusing horny teenagers who thought the girl singing lead was hot.

In film, the year is significant. This was the year the Titanic did the opposite of sink (erm… float). James Cameron’s historical (which icebergs aside wasn’t that historical) epic was seen by pretty much everyone on Earth. It probably grossed a further Trillion Wibblewangs outside the Milky Way (I just invented an alien currency). It thundered away as the highest grossing film ever (if you don’t »

Studio Ghibli Has Officially Reopened for Production on Hayao Miyazaki’s New Movie

11 August 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The road to Hayao Miyazaki’s new movie continues to be a slow effort, but each new development is well worth celebrating. The latest news as reported on Studio Ghibli’s official website is that the company has officially reopened its production department to begin work on Miyazaki’s first feature since 2013. The company stopped production on all features and shorts in August 2013, just after Miyazaki confirmed his retirement. Fortunately, both the filmmaker and studio are back and ready to work.

Additional details on Miyazaki’s new film have not been released. It’s been widely speculated the movie will be a feature adaptation of his first CGI short film, “Boro the Caterpillar,” »

Studio Ghibli Officially Reopens For New Hayao Miyazaki Movie

11 August 2017 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Where many animators might overtly simplify the visual elements of their animated movies, Hayao Miyazaki has always adhered to a painstakingly difficult process for his films.

The legendary Japanese director of such classics as “Spirited Away,” “Princess Mononoke,” and “My Neighbor Totoro” has always been suspicious of computers and personally draws his own frames by hand, which number in the thousands per film.

Miyazaki’s Spirited Away Screens Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli (and Saturday at Noon)

6 August 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can’t remember.“

Hiyao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away screens this Friday and Saturday nights (August 11th and 12th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series. The midnight screening will be Subtitled. There will also be a matinee at noon on Saturday August 12th that will be the dubbed version.

People call Hiyao Miyazaki the Japanese Disney and Spirited Away is considered one of his very best, if not his masterpiece. The film starts like a fairly typical take on Alice in Wonderland or Narnia. A girl is bought into a fantasy world and has to find her way back. But Miyazaki takes it even further. His heroine, ten year old Chihiro is a typically modern girl, upset about moving into a new home and afraid of new changes in her life. »

The Power of Christ Compels You to See The Exorcist Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

30 July 2017 7:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Your mother’s in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I’ll see that she gets it.”

The Exorcist screens this Friday and Saturday nights (August 4th and 5th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

This ground-breaking, starkly filmed thriller The Exorcist stands for many as one of the most terrifying films of all time. Fairly explicit for 1973, it raised the bar in film-making for realism and adult horror and has been emulated many times. However, it is set apart by its well-written (Oscar-winning) script and realistic performances. Ellen Burstyn is an actress who begins to sense unusual behavior in her preteen daughter (Linda Blair). The bizarre symptoms (open sores, violent thrashing, etc…) escalate as Burstyn seeks help from all conventional avenues. Finally, she determines that Blair is possessed by Satan (or a demon at least) and must be exorcised. »

The Princess Bride Screens Midnights at The Tivoli This Weekend

23 July 2017 6:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”

Why is this such a classic line in the minds of many? I don’t know, really. But I do know that the way that Mandy Patinkin delivers it in this film has ‘classic line’ written all over it!

The Princess Bride screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 28th and 29th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

Believe it or don’t, but I just saw The Princess Bride for the first time in 2014 at a Tenacious Eats ‘Movies for Foodies’ event. I’d heard great things about it for decades so I’m not sure why I’ve spent so many years avoiding it. Perhaps because I was 25 when it was made in 1987 and really, what self-respecting dude would watch a movie called The Princess Bride »

‘The Girl Without Hands’: Gkids’ Hand-Painted Brothers Grimm Film Offers a Unique Adult Fairy Tale — Watch

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Brothers Grimm loved nothing more than a horrifying, gruesome, decidedly older-skewing fairy tale. While their classic stories have often been sanitized for wider audiences, it appears as if Gkids’ upcoming feature film “The Girl Without Hands” is holding on to at least a few of the more terrifying details of the original story that has inspired the animated offering.

In the film, a starving miller makes a literal deal with Devil, only to find that he’s been tricked (such is the main problem with dealing with Satan, after all) and has accidentally sold off his cherished daughter. Initially protected by her disarmingly pure heart, the Devil eventually makes off with the girl’s actual hands, forcing her to embark on a hard-won journey to redemption that involves true love, a surprising new life, and more than one more run-in with the evil being that hurt her in the first place. »

Can You Dig It? Shaft Screens Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

17 July 2017 8:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Shaft (1971) screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 21st and 2nd) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

“Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks?”

Shaft was not the first Blaxploitation film but it is the most influential and one of the most memorable. A workaday script was launched into cultural orbit by the charismatic performance of Richard Roundtree and the unforgettable theme song by the late Isaac Hayes. The importance of this movie is not that it was hugely successful (although it was), but that it was among the first produced and performed by a crew and cast that was predominantly black. It proved that there was a significant audience for movies that represented black culture on its own terms and treated the audience with respect. Importantly, Shaft isn’t a »
