Directors Who Damaged Their Careers Part 5 – The One Who Made Batman & Robin

10 September 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson continues his series looking at directors who damaged their careers; next up is Michael Sarne (read the first part on Richard Kelly here, the second part on Michael Cimino here, the third part on George Lucas here, and the fourth part on Michael Sarne here)…

Joel Schumacher is a strange addition to this series, mainly because his career implosion occurred much slower than previous entries, and somehow managing to survive a colossal disaster of a film that would have ended most careers. Not only surviving, but also continuing to make films with significant backing, before almost completely finishing it off by making one stinker too many.

Schumacher originally made his name as a director in the 1980s; bringing us films featuring the then popular “brat pack” group of actors, directing successful movies  like St Elmo’s Fire (1984), The Lost Boys (1987).

On this day in pop culture history: Eric Clapton joined The Beatles for a day

6 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On September 6, 1968, Eric Clapton joined The Beatles for a day. It was for the recording of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” The George Harrison-penned song now famously features lead guitar by Clapton, though he wasn’t officially credited on The White Album where the song appeared. The Beatles had made a couple attempts to record “Guitar Gently Weeps” earlier that year, in July and also an electric version on September 5. None of those arrangements were quite coming together. “They weren’t taking it seriously,” Harrison later said of his bandmates. There was already a great deal of of conflict among the group by this point. The next day, Harrison was giving Clapton a ride from Surrey to London, and he asked Clapton to play on the track. Clapton at first balked at the idea, saying “Nobody [else] ever plays on the Beatles’ records.” But he eventually agreed to join the »

Charlie Hunnam Stars In King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Trailer

23 July 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

On Saturday, Warner Bros. debuted the trailer during their Comic-Con presentation in Hall H.

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.

Starring with Hunnam (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”) and Oscar nominee Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley »

Unnamed Universal Monster Movie Gets 2019 Release Date

3 May 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The rebooted world of the Universal Monsters continues to take shape, with Universal now scheduling a release date for a third film that will offer a new take on a classic cinematic creature.

Deadline reports that an untitled Universal Monster movie has received a February 15th, 2019 (Presidents’ Day weekend) debut date.

Scott Reviews The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Collection [Arrow Video Blu-ray Review]

28 April 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It’s no real secret that we’re reaching a tipping point with home video. Streaming is proving a better and better option for the casual consumer every day, and even the cinephile dollar, which has rather successfully driven home video decisions for the past couple of years, has such services as Hulu, Fandor, Mubi, and – soon – FilmStruck vying for their attention. Physical distributors have subsequently doubled down on their most successful and acclaimed models. Criterion is going big on new-to-disc, big international titles with new restorations (Brighter Summer Day, Paris Belongs to Us, A Touch of Zen) and lavish new editions of American classics (The New World, Dr. Strangelove). Kino is investing in silent classics (Fantomas, The Phantom of the Opera, Diary of a Lost Girl) while diversifying to include more American studio titles. Masters of Cinema is going into deep specialty stuff with an Early Murnau box and Edvard Munch. »

Knightmare’s top 10 quest characters

18 April 2016 8:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The dungeoneers on Citv’s Knightmare met a wide range of fantasy figures, from monks to mages to thieves. Here are 10 of the best…

“Mike, you’re in a room. There’s a cauliflower on the floor.”

Children aren’t very good at improv. That’s why there were never any on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Basing Citv adventure game Knightmare around the improvised encounters of a temporarily blinded child guided on a parlous quest by three friends with a shaky grasp on the precise qualities that distinguish left from right, then, was a risky approach. You just couldn’t rely on early nineties kids to pull their weight in Knightmare’s improv scenes. It turns out a diet of Willy Wonka’s Dweebs and Vanilla Ice lyrics isn’t conducive to thinking on your feet.

That meant the weight of responsibility fell on the shoulders of Knightmare’s recurring actors. »

And So We Say Goodbye to American Idol: The People Review

6 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In spring 2007, American Idol had what could be called its Donald Trump moment. The sixth season of Fox's make-me-a-pop-superstar/talent-show juggernaut had acquainted millions of Americans with a contestant named Sanjaya Malakar. He was a sweet, mildly talented and - at some fundamental level - rather silly 17-year-old. Judge Simon Cowell regarded him as a waste of time and undeserving of a continued spot on the Idol stage. And yet he stayed. Viewers kept voting to keep him in the competition. Why? It would have been one thing if gangly, smiling Sanjaya were merely an underdog. Except that he was, »

Cody Rhodes To Drop Stardust Character After WrestleMania 32?

3 April 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It’s been nearly two years since Cody Rhodes first adopted the persona of Stardust – a bizarre, bodysuit-wearing takeoff on his older brother’s ultra-successful “Goldust” persona – and the gimmick may be drawing to a end. 

According to the former WWE Tag Team Champion himself at WrestleMania Axxess, if he doesn’t win the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, Stardust will be gone and Cody may have to return.

Since his debut on WWE TV nearly a decade ago, Cody Rhodes has gone through a plethora of different personas. First debuting as a grateful second-generation star, Rhodes soon turned his back on his family to join Randy Orton’s Legacy stable. When the group disbanded, the “Dashing” star started offering personal grooming tips, but an injury suffered at the hands of Rey Mysterio forced him to wear a facial mask a la The Phantom of the Opera.

The mask ran its course, »

Ranking the Batman Movies From Worst to Best

24 March 2016 6:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s absurd to suggest that film critics were paid to write negative reviews of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” But as absurd ideas go, it’s a mildly flattering one, since it carries with it a sliver of implication that critics actually matter — or that a studio would give a bat’s ass what critics think of a movie as thoroughly, obtusely critic-proof as “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” (I keep typing “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in hopes that the overextended title may improve with repetition, but it doesn’t — instead it just sits there, heavy with meaningless portent and bereft of punctuation: “Who stole my period?”)

Did I mention that, unlike roughly 69% of the critics listed on Rotten Tomatoes who reviewed “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” I did not hate “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”? Well, I didn’t — and no, Warner Bros. »

The backstory of the witches from The Wizard of Oz is the third Broadway production in history to hit that high.
