‘Mankind’s Last Stand’ Review

19 April 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Adrian Paul, Brandon Auret, Reiley McClendon, Rick Ravanello, Douglas Tait, Joe Reegan, Nic Rasenti, Andy Davoli, Matthew Holmes, Sven Ruygrok, Scott E. Miller, Kenneth Fok, Darron Meyer | Written by Jabbar Raisani, Blake Clifton | Directed by Jabbar Raisani

Jabbar Raisani, a former visual effects maestro, who here turns director – makes his feature debut with a film that mixes a myriad of stereotypes and cliches of the alien invasion genre with the modern war movie (there’s a very good reason the film is described as Independence Day meets Black Hawk Down) in a faux-documentary that sees a camera crew join an elite unit of soldiers at Outpost 37, the most hostile region of what remains of our planet, as they face one of their greatest battles against the “Heavies” alien intruders who, a decade earlier, had invaded Earth with the intention of total annihilation.

Also known as Outpost 37 and Alien Outpost, »

Josh Hartnett Regrets Not Playing the Dark Knight in Nolan's 'Batman' Films

17 April 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For a time during the early 2000s, Josh Hartnett was one of Hollywood's It Boys, starring in Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down, and 40 Days and 40 Nights. However, his acting output has been noticeably slim over the last decade, a fact Hartnett attributes in a new interview with Playboy (via Variety) to turning down the role of Batman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Yeah, that'll do the trick. In lieu of his decision, Hartnett made some smaller movies, and then he stopped working for a while because, as he tells Playboy, "I was tired and wanted to spend more time with my friends and family." Looking back, however, Hartnett wishes he'd have reconsidered his decision to turn down the cape and cowl. "I've definitely said no to some of the wrong people." He further elaborates: "I learned my lesson when Christopher Nolan and I talked about Batman. I decided it wasn't for me. »

Josh Hartnett Explains Why He Turned Down Christopher Nolan's Batman Movies

17 April 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the early 2000s, young heartthrob Josh Hartnett was in a position that many young actors would envy. He had just starred in two big movies (“Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down”) from two very different auteurs, and for a while it seemed like he could be the next top tier star: a new Tom Cruise or Will Smith. But Hartnett avoided being locked down in any possible blockbuster franchise by turning down one superhero role after another, yet there’s one he regrets saying no to. In a short interview with Playboy (via Variety), Hartnett was asked about the times he was asked to play Superman for Bryan Singer in “Superman Returns,” Spider-Man for Sam Raimi’s film of the same name and Batman for Christopher Nolan. What was his reasoning for turning down such potentially lucrative roles? “The intensity of my sudden fame was overwhelming for me, and in the middle of that, »

Josh Hartnett Says He Regrets Turning Down Batman Offer From Christopher Nolan

16 April 2015 5:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even the biggest movie stars have career regrets. At least, that’s what Josh Hartnett revealed in an interview with Playboy when he admitted that he turned down an offer from Christopher Nolan to play Batman in his superhero reboot.

“I’ve definitely said no to some of the wrong people,” Hartnett told the magazine. “I learned my lesson when Christopher Nolan and I talked about Batman. I decided it wasn’t for me. Then he didn’t want to put me in ‘The Prestige.’ They not only hired their Batman for it, they also hired my girlfriend (Scarlett Johansson) at the time.”

Hartnett went on to explain that he didn’t reject the offer due to any beef with Nolan, whom he describes as “incredibly cool and very talented,” but that his decision was a result of his resistance to being boxed in as only a blockbuster star. The »

Video of the Day: Ridley Scott’s filmography in seven glorious minutes

13 April 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ridley Scott is known for his atmospheric, highly concentrated visual style, and his films frequently showcase memorable imagery of various environments and different time periods be it 2nd century Rome (Gladiator), 12th century Jerusalem (Kingdom of Heaven), 21st century Mogadishu (Black Hawk Down), or the future cityscapes of Blade Runner. Although Ridley Scott’s trademarks may not be as apparent as Speilberg’s or Scorsese’s, his work continues to influence filmmaker world-wide. Vimeo user Martin Kessler put together this brilliant montage showcasing his eclectic body of work. Kudos to Kessler for not only choosing the best scenes from Scott’s oeuvre, but also picking the right music, ranging from 12thCentury church tunes to Public Enemy’s “Can’t Truss It”. Enjoy!

Watch: Video Tribute To Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' Plus Massive Behind-The-Scenes Gallery With Over 140 Photos

18 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ridley Scott has worked in many genres over his career —period pieces (“The Duellists”), war movies (“Black Hawk Down”), con man movies (“Matchstick Men”), sword and sandal epics ( “Gladiator”) and even soggy, feel-good pap (“A Good Year”). Last year’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” had a small faction of staunch vocal supporters, but his landmark sci-fi masterwork “Blade Runner” marks the last time the director made a film that could credibly be described as visionary.  I’ll never forget the first time I saw the film on VHS: the images of those towering, terrifying billboards adorned with ghastly, smiling faces burned into my impressionable young mind forever. Woefully misunderstood upon its 1982 release, Scott’s film has since found a devoted following: in fact, a sequel has recently been announced —it's to be directed by “Enemy" and "Prisoners" helmer Denis Villeneuve and with Harrison Ford confirmed to reprise his terrifically grizzled turn as. »

With trophyware not yet handed out, Variety reports that IFC’s Arianna Bocco has snagged the North American distrib rights for the Sundance Selects label.

Gist: Based on the short story by David Constantine and adapted by Haigh, Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay portray a couple in the middle of preparations for her 45th wedding anniversary when he receives news that the body of his old girlfriend, who died years earlier in a fatal accident in the Swiss Alps, has finally been found.

Worth Noting: Haigh was an assistant editor Ridley Scott’s Gladiator and Black Hawk Down prior to embarking on his debut short films.

BAFTA Best Sound Winners Do Well at the Oscars

9 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Damian Chazelle’s Whiplash won three BAFTA Awards at last night’s ceremony: best editing, best supporting actor and best sound. The film, which also received BAFTA nominations for best director and best original screenplay, is nominated for five Oscars. The three BAFTA wins coincide with similar Oscar categories, including best sound mixing. (Rather than have one Oscar category for sound, the Oscars are split into sound mixing and sound editing, and Whiplash is nominated for sound mixing.) Do these BAFTA wins bode well for the film at the Oscars?

BAFTA, or the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, used to hold the awards ceremony after the Academy Awards had already occurred, but since 2001, the BAFTAs have preceded the Oscars.

In the 14 years since the BAFTAs have taken place before the Oscars, only four of the 14 best sound BAFTA winners didn’t win an Oscar for their sound, »

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »
