Amusing Full Trailer for the Comedy Dear White People

22 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A full trailer has been released for writer and director Justin Simien's Sundance hit, Dear White People. I've heard a lot of fantastic things about this movie, which is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America. I really like the humor that I'm seeing in the trailer, and this looks like a really entertaining movie worth checking out.  Here's a synopsis for the movie:

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Is 'Dear White People' the Must-See Satire of the Year?

22 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Dear White People" was one of the great critical successes of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and based on the trailer it's easy to see why: This is a movie that asks hard questions and dives right into the tough ambiguity of their answers. The film concerns black students at an Ivy League school who revolt when word of a white-organized party with an "African-American theme" gets out. Yikes. You just can't ignore the bite of a movie that dares to describe a character as a "bourgie Lisa Bonet wannabe." Oh, Denise. "Dear White People" hits theaters Oct. 17 and stars Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Dennis Haysbert (who looks exactly the same as he did in "Far From Heaven" 12 years ago), and Kyle Gallner, who really scared the hell out of me on "Veronica Mars." »

Boyhood Producer Promises He'll Do Your Chores If You Don't Like The Movie

14 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Richard Linklater's long-in-the-works coming-of-age drama Boyhood is getting tons of critical praise. Our own Sean O'Connell gave the indie five stars and called it, "the most ingenious, most effective, most experimental, most unpredictable, most demanding, most rewarding and most enjoyable movie I.ve screened." With reviews like these, it's understandable that Boyhood's makers are confident it will appeal to moviegoers as it expands in release this week. But one producer in particular is putting his time where his mouth is. Producer John Sloss has had a hand in creating such celebrated cinema as Before Sunrise, Boys Don.t Cry, Far From Heaven, Bernie and (of course) Boyhood. But despite the rave reviews, the last of these might seem a tough sale in summer movie season. Blame it on the influx of spectacle-driven tent poles like Transformers: Age of Extinction or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Blame »

Funny Trailer for Dear White People

20 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Dear White People was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see, but I've been hearing nothing but great things. The movie is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America, and it was written and directed by Justin Simien. As you'll see in the trailer, he's willing take on sensitive topics and bring some humor to it. Here's a synopsis for the movie:

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

New on Video: ‘All That Heaven Allows’

18 June 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

All That Heaven Allows

Directed by Douglas Sirk

Written by Peg Fenwick

USA, 1955

If ever there was a movie to reap the visual benefits of a Criterion Collection Blu-ray digital restoration, it is Douglas Sirk’s 1955 film, All That Heaven Allows. This lushly photographed work is Sirk’s most scathing and insightful commentary on subversive Hollywood cinema and the sociocultural norms it sought to challenge. With venerable cinematographer Russell Metty behind the camera, the film is radiant with rich, pulsating color, giving visual vibrancy to lives of complacency and routine. It was Sirk’s follow-up to his successful Magnificent Obsession from the year before, which has similar themes and tones and was another gorgeous melodrama. Universal kept what worked, bringing back Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman, and Metty. In many ways though, it’s All That Heaven Allows that stands as the defining work of Sirk’s career, the greatest of »

Criterion Collection: All that Heaven Allows | Blu-ray Review

10 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As Laura Mulvey’s essay, “An Articulate Screen” contends, 1955’s All That Heaven Allows was “just another critically unnoticed Hollywood genre product,” the attempt for a studio to repeat the pairing of stars Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman after the box office success of their work on the earlier Sirk title, Magnificent Obsession. But, the film has come to be one of Sirk’s signature pieces in an oeuvre astoundingly reconceived passionately by later generations of critics and international filmmakers, and rightly so. While his films can be classified as soapy melodramas, or that even more insidiously demeaning label, ‘women’s pictures,’ Sirk was hardly churning out tearjerker fodder—rather, his were insightful, complex portraits and elegant critiques of 1950’s social mores.

An upper class widow, Cary Scott (Jane Wyman) lives alone in her large home, her children Ned (William Reynolds) and Kay (Gloria Talbott) away at school and visiting on select holidays and weekends. »

Top Ten: The Aughts

28 May 2014 8:49 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Last year I was throwin' up quickie top ten lists for each decade for archival and discussion purposes and tonight wI realized that I'd never finished the run skipping the Aughts and the 1920s and the 1910s (the latter two because I'd hoped to see more silent films before top ten'ing it). So herewith a revisit / rework of a "best of the aughts" list originally published in 2010 but many of you have joined us since!.

Care to share yours?

01 Moulin Rouge! dir. Baz Luhrmann (2001)

The party of the decade. The inspired mashup conductor (Baz) and his darling stars (Nicole, Ewan, Jim) put on the messiest craziest livelest funniest tearjerking "Spectacular! Spectacular!" show on earth. I'd never claim it's a perfect movie but flaws are endearing when you love madly and deeply. and Love Is All You Need.

02 Brokeback Mountain dir. Ang Lee (2005)

A love story for the ages. And one that quietly enrages. »

Pattinson and (Hilarious) Moore Get Intimate in Red Band HD Trailer for Maps to the Stars - Plus Four Film Clips

9 May 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Maps to the Stars’ trailer and clips: Julianne Moore goes ballistic after losing a role, Robert Pattinson learns that Mia Wasikowska’s parents are brother and sister (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘Maps to the Stars’) The Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars, the second David Cronenberg-Robert Pattinson collaboration to be screened in competition for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival — following Cosmopolis two years ago — is one of the most anticipated films at the festival for obvious reasons: although an international box office disappointment, the brainy, stream-of-consciousness Cosmopolis earned a number of enthusiastic reviews and was the runner-up (trailing only Leos Carax’s fellow white limo movie Holy Motors) on the list of Best Films of 2012 compiled by the prestigious Cahiers du Cinéma.

The Songs of "Spellbound": Q&A with Producer Kevin Bannerman

22 April 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Spellbound, the animated test movie from Amazon Studios features five original songs. We asked producer Kevin Bannerman (Anastasia, Ice Age) about the role the songs played and how they shaped the film.

How do songs help shape a movie?

It helps shape the movie’s tone. They can often show screenwriters a side of the character that hasn’t been explored. With a lyricist, the characters can develop a sense of humor and personality through their songs.

What song is the most pivotal in the movie?

Each song is unique in its own way because each individual song has its own special reason for being. “New Breeze Blowing” is important because it takes the relationship between Lottie and Bastien to new heights (pun intended). But “The Road to Riches” is just as important for several reasons: it gives us an insight into Horace, it allows Lottie and Horace to have »

Guardian wonders when we'll start seeing gay parents in family films from Disney

Variety True Detective will compete in drama rather than in miniseries at the Emmys. Interesting move, right? I still think the Emmys need to start making rulings on this sort of thing just so there's consistency, rather than letting the shows decide.

[Updated]: R.I.P. James Rebhorn: Read The Obituary He Wrote For Himself

25 March 2014 12:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Updated: It was already very sad news that James Rebhorn had passed away and now Deadline has shared the obituary he wrote for himself. It brings us, and James, an even more honourable look at the life of a man who not only fought for as long as he could but also the respect and love he had for everything in his life. It’s very sad, yet beautiful and reflective and deserves to be shared:

James Robert Rebhorn was born on Sept. 1, 1948, in Philadelphia, Pa. His mother, Ardell Frances Rebhorn, nee Hoch, loved him very much and supported all his dreams. She taught him the value of good manners and courtesy, and that hospitality is no small thing. His father, James Harry Rebhorn, was no less devoted to him. From him, Jim learned that there is no excuse for poor craftsmanship. A job well done rarely takes more or »

James Rebhorn obituary

24 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor who played FBI agents, cops and traditional fathers

Anyone looking for an actor to play an unyielding martinet could hardly have done better over the last few decades than to cast James Rebhorn, who has died aged 65 after suffering from skin cancer. Poker-thin and poker-faced, this white-haired, crinkle-eyed performer excelled at bringing a glint of bureaucratic bloody-mindedness to small parts that might otherwise have slipped past unnoticed. He could be sympathetic too, even slightly buffoonish, as proved by his turn as the father of the gadabout Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) in The Talented Mr Ripley (1999), but he could also turn on a dime from charm to vindictiveness.

His speciality was playing officialdom in all its manifestations: cops, FBI agents, doctors, politicians. Asked in 2012 about his repeated appearances in legal dramas (he starred on television in Boston Legal, Law & Order, The Practice and The Good Wife, among others), he drew »

Prolific Character Actor James Rebhorn Dies At 65

24 March 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Rebhorn, one of the most prolific and recognizable American actors of the stage and screen, died on Friday at his New Jersey home. He was 65.

A familiar face for all film fans, Rebhorn spent many years honing his craft in the theatre before appearing in many of the biggest films and television series of the last 20 years. Although the actor was diagnosed with melanoma in 1992, he continued working heavily until last month, racking up 125 credits during 30 years in the business.

With a tall, gangly figure, Rebhorn often played characters with sleaze, power or a mix of both. He often portrayed politicians, police chiefs, strict fathers and lawyers, and never gave a dull performance. Among his most notable film roles are as Herbert Greenleaf in The Talented Mr. Ripley, secretary of defence Albert Nimziki in Independence Day and the mysterious Jim Feingold in The Game. Other film credits include parts in Meet the Parents, »
