Review: 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' Starring Liam Neeson And Dan Stevens

18 September 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before sitting down to watch the new Liam Neeson movie, audiences have been prepped to see the weary-faced action star kicking ass with class, thanks to entertaining flicks like “Taken,” “Non-Stop,” and “The Grey.” But, for every “Taken” there’s a “Taken 2,” and if one year the grizzly Irishman can come out with something as forceful as “The Grey,” the following year “Battleship” can sink people’s opinions once more. It’s just not simple to put a finger on the prospects of a new Neeson film, particularly one directed by screenwriter-turned-director Scott Frank. The only previous feature Frank has directed was the overlooked and underrated “The Lookout,” and he's also got “Get Shorty” and “Out Of Sight” under his writing belt, as well as the less memorable “Flight Of The Phoenix.” With this combined pedigree from the actor and writer-director, the two dominant forces behind “A Walk Among The Tombstones, »

'I.T.' Starring Pierce Brosnan Gets 'Die Hard 5' Director

26 August 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director John Moore (A Good Day to Die Hard) has signed on to direct the thriller I.T., which has Pierce Brosnan attached to star.

We first reported on this project back in October 2013, when Pierce Brosnan signed on to play a successful book publisher whose friendship with a young I.T. consultant goes awry. The publisher soon finds his life being turned upside down, as his former friend begins threatening everything and everyone close to him.

William Wisher Jr. (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Abyss, Live Free or Die Hard) has signed on to rewrite the original script by Daniel Kay, and he will also serve as co-executive producer. Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing through their Voltage Pictures company, alongside Friendly Films' David T. Friendly and Pierce Brosnan's producing partner Beau St. Clair. No production schedule was given, but Voltage will be selling the project »

The First and Final Films of Richard Attenborough

25 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This isn’t the story of a ship, but it starts with one. A month after the real-life Royal Navy resupplied Malta during Operation Pedestal, In Which We Serve hit theaters in the UK. It’s a WWII story made and released during WWII, featuring the sinking of the Hms Torrin as a symbol for the temporary loss that makes us all fight harder for the larger victory. A seafaring Alamo whose stalwart captain goes on to fire even larger guns from an even stouter ship at the destined-to-fail Nazis. This was Richard Attenborough‘s film debut as an actor. He played a yellow-gutted shell loader who abandons his post, leaving the men up top without one of their ammo sources. It’s a role hidden within a sea of other characters, but Attenborough — whose character doesn’t even have a name — gets a spotlit moment to twist his face in terror until ultimately breaking. The »

R.I.P. Lord Richard Attenborough

24 August 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Oscar-winning British actor and film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90. Attenborough passed away at lunchtime on Sunday.

Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years and had been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs six years ago.

Attenborough's career spanned six decades. Acting wise he's best remembered for the likes of "The Great Escape," "Jurassic Park," "Brighton Rock," "Flight of the Phoenix," "Miracle on 34th Street," "Elizabeth" and "Doctor Dolittle".

As a director his most well-known works included "Gandhi," "Chaplin," "Cry Freedom," "Shadowlands" and "A Chorus Line".

His family, including his equally famous brother David Attenborough, are expected to make a full statement on Monday.

Richard Attenborough Appreciation: A Legacy Beyond ‘Gandhi’

24 August 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To many in the entertainment industry, Richard Attenborough will always be synonymous with “Gandhi,” which is understandable. The filmmaker, who died Sunday at 90, directed only a dozen films, and none of them matched his 1982 bio-epic.

But Attenborough was also an actor of great range, from his lower-class hoodlum in the 1947 “Brighton Rock” (from Graham Greene’s novel) to the Pow in “The Great Escape” (third-billed under Steve McQueen and James Garner) to a high-kicking circus owner in the 1967 “Dr. Doolittle,” adding energy and pep to a film that needed both.

Attenborough’s best-known work as an actor was in the 1993 “Jurassic Park,” but his career had been going for 50 years at that point. Some of his best performances came in the mid-1960s. He starred with Kim Stanley in “Seance on a Wet Afternoon” as two scam artists whose scheme goes very wrong, and it was followed in the next »

Five Essential Airplane Movies

2 July 2014 11:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Graham with five essential airplane movies…

To celebrate the recent release of Liam Neeson’s Non-Stop on DVD, Blu-Ray and limited edition steelbox, let’s take a look at some other must-see movies that take high up in the sky…

Disney’s Planes (2013)

This spin-off from Pixar’s Cars is definitely a must-see…

Or not. I’m joking. It’s actually pretty unpopular, at least with critics, although it did manage to gross over $200 million. Did you know it’s getting a sequel?

5. Flightplan (2005)

Now this is actually worth seeing. Jodie Foster plays Kyle Pratt, an engineer who must frantically search for her daughter who goes missing during a flight, but everyone on the plane denies the daughter exists! This twisty thriller is an exciting watch.

4. Con Air (1997)

This mad-cap, over-the-top action film from producer Jerry Bruckheimer is hugely entertaining, and one of Nicolas Cage’s better films. It »

What’s new, what’s hot, and what you may have missed, now available to stream.

new to streaming

The Invisible Woman: the story of Charles Dickens and his secret mistress is no romance, and no modest costume drama, either, but a tale of women being practical because they had to be [my review] [at Amazon Instant Video] The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: a cheery, airy fairy tale filled with a very modern ache and buoyed by an infectious joy; I love this movie [my review] [at Amazon Instant Video]

new to Prime

The English Patient: haunting and enthralling, a scrapbook of another world of romance and adventure and tragedy; Oscar winner for Best Picture [my review] [at Amazon Instant Video] Flight of the Phoenix: an inherently absurd survival adventure with an infectiously contradictory attitude: jaded and thrilled, cynical and expansive [my review] [at Amazon Instant Video]

Tsr Blog: ‘Non-Stop’ and Why It’s Safe for Movie Planes to Crash Again

7 March 2014 11:43 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Through films like Flightplan, Soul Plane, and White House Down, it has taken over a decade for Hollywood to arrive at Non-Stop.

Showing the vitality of Liam Neeson carrying a gun and a broken heart, Non-Stop recently gave the new action hero one of his biggest box office weekends so far. Involving an air marshal using a particular set of skills to hunt and kill someone threatening his plane (to paraphrase Taken), the film may seem like a generic Neeson actioner. But while his character might be a composite of previous roles, the anxiety he tackles within this film is fresh. Considering its box office success (and my mother’s intense experience in watching the movie), Non-Stop works efficiently as a thriller in 2014 because it provides viewers with imagery of in-flight chaos not seen since before 9/11. It is also the indication of a natural progression for how Hollywood films are »

Nominations Announced For 64th Annual Ace Eddie Awards

10 January 2014 7:32 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

American Cinema Editors (Ace) today announced nominations for the 64th Annual Ace Eddie Awards recognizing outstanding editing in ten categories of film, television and documentaries. Winners will be revealed during Ace’s annual black-tie awards ceremony on Friday, February 7, 2014 in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The Ace Eddie Award nominees are listed below.

‘Breaking Bad’ is Dealt Four ACEs in Eddie Noms

10 January 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

But what I really want to do is edit: Film directors nabbed two of the 10 film slots in the 64th annual Ace Eddie Awards nominations. But the biggest news is the near-sweep of “Breaking Bad” in the one-hour TV drama category.

The Eddie Awards split films into drama and comedy divisions. In the first group, Alfonso Cuaron (along with Mark Sanger) got a bid for “Gravity,” while Ethan and Joel Coen, under their nom de edit Roderick Jaynes, were nominated for “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

In the category labeled one-hour drama for commercial TV, “Breaking Bad” landed a whopping four of the five noms, including three bids for Skip MacDonald. The lone exception in that category was Scott Vickrey for an episode of “The Good Wife.”

Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic):

“12 Years a Slave”: Joe Walker

Captain Phillips”: Chris Rouse, A.C.E.
