31 October 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This year's Denver Film Festival has a diverse lineup of killer films both small and large. To select just ten meant I had to strain out promising titles like Lucifer, shot on tondoscope and directed by the provocative Gus Van Den Berghe, or special presentations like Mia Madre by Italian director Nanni Morreti. You should see those and all the films on this list, and more -- the roster's dense. You can view the 38th Denver Film Festival schedule in its entirety here. The Festival will run from November 4th to the 15th.

Goosebumps review – Jack Black's a hoot as horror writer Rl Stine

5 October 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Goosebumps author turns up as a creepy weirdo in this spine-tingling romp full of villains from his bestselling novels

Creators have been mixing it up with their characters for a while. You can see it in Fellini’s 8½, Woody Allen’s Deconstructing Harry, or, heck, the Warner Bros cartoon Duck Amuck. Then there are the times when it’s not an author character showing up, but the actual author, such as Stephen King in The Dark Tower or Kurt Vonnegut in Breakfast of Champions. Somewhere in between is Charlie Kaufman writing the character Charlie Kaufman for Nicolas Cage to play in Adaptation.

Now this mind-scrambling list needs to find a place for Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander’s character Rl Stine – based on the actual creator of the popular Goosebumps novels – who encounters many Goosebumps villains in the new movie called Goosebumps.

Drew Goddard interview: The Martian, Daredevil, World War Z

28 September 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Buffy to his latest film, Ridley Scott’s The Martian, we chat to screenwriter Drew Goddard about his work to date...

This piece contains a spoiler for World War Z.

If you’re a fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Marvel’s Daredevil or the superb comedy horror, Cabin In The Woods, you’ll almost certainly have heard of Drew Goddard. Beginning as a staff writer on Buffy and Angel before gradually building his way to directing Cabin In The Woods (which he co-wrote with Joss Whedon), Goddard is now one of Hollywood’s most sought-after writers and filmmakers.

His latest project to reach the screen is The Martian, adapted from Andy Weir’s best-selling novel and now director Ridley Scott’s new movie. A visually captivating account of an astronaut’s survival after an incident leaves him stranded alone on Mars, it features a superb central performance from Matt Damon, »

Video: Ecstasy, Agony, and Beauty in the films of Spike Jonze

3 September 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s something incredible special about the movies of Spike Jonze.

I don’t know if it is how he shoots them, the intimate stories, or the eclectic characters but they all seem so fresh when you watch them. As if there is nothing else like them.

Vimeo user Hello Wizard felt the same and documented the joy, pain, and utter gorgeousness of the films of Spike Jonze in a more than 5-minute video that highlights the great moments in his films: Being John Malkovich, Adaptation., Where the Wild Things Are, and Her.

Now, the hard part comes: Waiting for the next Jonze film and trying not to rewatch them all after seeing this video.

However, the narrator admits that finding salacious details of Streep’s life proved challenging. “Honestly, we kind of struggled to find dirt on Meryl,” he says. “So we made things up. »

Watch how Spike Jonze movies create the atmosphere of a fairytale

6 March 2015 7:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Are you curious about how director Spike Jonze frames his films? How his moments can become both filled with reality and fantasy? It seems like the director has a knack for keeping the audience balanced between both realms.

In a new video essay, Jacob Swinney shows what makes Jonze’s four feature films (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation., Where the Wild Things Are, and Her) so special and how they create the belief of fantasy within a very real world. The essay focuses on Jonze’s use of lens flares, floating camera movement, centered framing, and wide-angle close-ups, and how they help the create this atmosphere that make his film seem both real and fantastical.

It also takes the time to look at some of the shots that made each of these films unique and how he has started to shift his atmosphere from the more realistic aesthetic of Being John Malkovich »

It’s Been 17 Years Since American Actors Have Swept the Oscar’s Acting Categories

12 February 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

On any given year, the four acting winners are usually a mix of American and non-American actors, but this year could see all four acting awards go to American actors for the first time in 17 years.

If Michael Keaton beats Eddie Redmayne for lead actor and the current projected frontrunners — supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore — also win, it will be the first time since 1998 that all of the acting awards were given to American actors. (It will also be the second time in 77 years that all of the winners have been 46 or older.)

In contrast, the last time all four awards went to non-American actors was in 2008, when Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem and Tilda Swinton all won.

Since 1980, there have been eight instances where American actors were awarded all four acting Oscars. »

J.K. Simmons Likely to Join Long Lineup of Oscar Winners With No Prior Nominations

7 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

J.K. Simmons’ portrayal of a vicious and relentless instructor at a music conservatory in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash has propelled Simmons as a frontrunner in the supporting actor Oscar race since the film’s premiere at Sundance. He received the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 3 and was nominated for a Golden Globe, which will be distributed on Jan. 11.

Simmons likely will earn his first Oscar nomination on Jan. 15 and if he wins on Feb. 22, he will become the eighth supporting actor in the last 14 years to win for his first nomination.

In the past 14 years, 50 percent (seven of 14) of supporting actors and 64 percent (nine of 14) of supporting actresses were never nominated before winning their first Oscar.

Last year’s winners, Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave (2013), were both first-time nominees. Leto »
