Fist Fight – Review

16 February 2017 9:23 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

A showdown’s a’ comin’! Not on the main street of Dodge City, but at the multiplex once again. The final throw down between the hero and villain has been a staple of cinema since its earliest days, mainly in action films and primarily the western. There have been countless screen versions of that infamous incident , the gunfight at the O.K. Corral (the most famous being the Kirk Douglas/Burt Lancaster 1950’s classic) . This most likely inspired many other “oaters”, the most celebrated being the iconic 1952 High Noon (which garnered an Oscar for star Gary Cooper). It’s set in real-time as the clock ticks to 12, while Will Kane readies himself for the arrival of the Miller gang. We’ve seen this plot used in many other genres, providing extra excitement to the final acts of every movie hero’s exploits from Rocky to Bond to Batman. But it »

Ryan Murphy, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon Talk Hollywood Ageism, Sexism and Inspirations for ‘Feud’

14 February 2017 3:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As a kid growing up in Indiana in the 1970s, Ryan Murphy only ever penned two fan letters.

One was to actor Ron Palillo, better known as Horshack from “Welcome Back, Kotter.” He never wrote back. The other was to Bette Davis. She did write back.

The legendary actress’ response wasn’t gushy, which made it feel all the more authentic. “She didn’t write ‘Love, Bette Davis, Xoxoxo.’ It was like ‘Thanks for the letter. You’re sweet. Bette Davis,” Murphy recalled Tuesday during a luncheon panel session devoted to his latest FX series, “Feud,” which bows March 5.

Murphy’s first letter to Davis led to a running correspondence which eventually led to a meeting in Los Angeles about a month before the screen legend died in 1989. Nearly 30 years later, the prolific writer-director-producer is at the helm of the limited series that tells the story of Davis and Joan Crawford’s frenemy relationship during the making »

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Review: Why Care About the Facts When a Show Feels This True?

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that’s inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way. Historical reports about the truth of what happened on the set of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and surrounding events are up for dispute, so instead we have the popular myths surrounding Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s legendary — and last — on-screen collaboration put on display by Ryan Murphy and his team. The end result is at times simultaneously obvious, essential, and not nearly as campy as you might expect.

And it turns out, that’s for the best.

Berlin Review: Geoffrey Rush Shines in Stanley Tucci’s Elegant But Unambitious ‘Final Portrait’

11 February 2017 9:07 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Enough footage of Alberto Giacometti exists to suggest that Geoffrey Rush is quite uncanny as the renowned surrealist sculptor in Final Portrait, a depiction of the seventeen days it took him to paint his last portrait, that of the American writer James Lord (played here by Armie Hammer). Based on Lord’s resulting 1965 book A Giacometti Portrait, it’s an elegant if somewhat unambitious piece of biographical work from writer-director Stanley Tucci, who has created — along with cinematographer Danny Cohen and art designer David Hindle (who worked with Rush before on Tom Hooper’s The Kings Speech) — a chicly grim vision of some of the shadier corners of the 1960s Parisian art scene.

It must be said that Hammer looks right at home smoking a cigarette in a beige trench and black-tie suit (had he been born ten years earlier he might have given Jon Hamm a run for his »

DVD Obscura: The New Indie and International Movies You Need to Watch

10 February 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New Indie While great shows like Mad Men and Breaking Bad have made it possible for TV’s best dramas to stand alongside great movies, it’s still a bit of a leap for actors to graduate from small-screen to large. For all his acclaim as Don Draper, Jon Hamm hasn’t quite found a film vehicle suited to his talents, and while Mad Men star Bryan Cranston snagged an Oscar nomination last year, his co-star Aaron Paul is also looking for a movie role that best suits him (although he’s killing it on Hulu’s The Path). Come and Find Me (Lionsgate Home Entertainment) isn’t the culmination of Paul’s quest for big-screen legitimacy, but it gets him a lot closer to his goal than, say, Need for Speed. This new thriller stars Paul as a man whose wife...

Firefly: Fox Is Open To A Reboot!! With One Small Caveat

10 February 2017 7:56 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you are a super sci-fi geek, loved Battlestar Gallatica or Star Trek: Deep Space 9, then you may have worshiped a "one year show" before it was cancelled called Firefly. I can say that I actually did not like the first two shows mentioned (please don't ignore everything I say going forth due to the Battlestar comment), but I was obsessed over Firefly. The show had great actors; Alan Tudyk was wonderful (check him out in Powerless), and the story was stellar. I was elated when Serenity was made for the big screen, but I was left wondering if the franchise would ever have a future.

As it turns out, according to Fox, there just may be a chance.

We know that this is considered one of the best sci-fi adaptations ever created, which Joss Whedon helmed, and it starred Nathan Fillion as Capt. Reynolds, Alan Tudyk as Wash, »

Maggie Siff’s Drama ‘A Woman, A Part’ Bought by Strand for U.S.

9 February 2017 5:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Elisabeth Subrin’s debut feature film “A Woman, A Part,” starring Maggie Siff, Variety has learned exclusively.

The drama had its world premiere in competition at the Rotterdam International Festival and later screened at BAMcinemafest.

Siff, whose credits include AMC’s “Mad Men,” FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” and Showtime’s “Billions,” portrays a successful TV actress at a professional and personal crossroads who abruptly walks off the set of her mind-numbing TV series and tells her manager (played by Khandi Alexander) that she wants to quit acting, which would result in a career-destroying lawsuit. She returns to New York to reconnect with lost friends from an avant-garde theater troupe — portrayed by Cara Seymour and John Ortiz — in search of lost love.

Producers are Scott Macaulay and Shrihari Sathe. Strand worked previously with Macaulay on “First Love, Last Rites,” directed by Jesse Peretz, »

Exclusive Interview: Director John Lee Hancock on The Founder

9 February 2017 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steven Goldman chats with director John Lee Hancock about The Founder

Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks; The Blind Side), The Founder stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc – a down-at-heel salesman from Illinois who transformed a successful restaurant run by brothers Mac and Dick McDonald (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) into the McDonalds empire known the world over today. Based on a true story, Hancock’s film follows the trail of how Kroc, impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able – by degrees unwittingly and ultimately callously – to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process from failure to ‘founder’ of an American economic empire.

We spoke with John Lee Hancock about the making of The Founder in Los Angeles.

What was it about the story of Ray Kroc that appealed to you as a filmmaker? »
