First look at Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan in HBO’s My Dinner with Hervé, Mireille Enos and more join cast

24 June 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Game of Thrones isn’t the only project Peter Dinklage is lending his talents to over at HBO, as the network has unveiled a first-look image of the actor in My Dinner With Hervé.

The upcoming TV movie takes a look at the life of Fantasy Island and The Man with the Golden Gun star Hervé Villechaize (described as “the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf” by HBO), who took his own life in 1993. Check out the image, which features co-star Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Grey) as struggling writer Danny Tate alongside Dinklage’s Villechaize, below…

Being perhaps the most accomplished and celebrated dwarf actor of all time makes Dinklage a good choice to fill Villechaize’s shoes, although it’s worth noting that Dinklage isn’t of Filipino and English descent like his counterpart.

My Dinner with Hervé is set during “one wild night” in Los Angeles, just days before Villechaize’s suicide, »

Blu-ray Review: Psycho (1998)

16 June 2017 11:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While I’m never going to consider it a “good” movie, I’m strangely glad that director Gus Van Sant’s shot-for-shot 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho exists. It only serves to make the original movie that much better (as though such a thing was possible) by demonstrating all the things Hitchcock does so perfectly that the remake gets perfectly wrong. Think of it as a $20 million experimental film; now that is has been tried and failed, we know that the experiment doesn’t need repeating. That alone has to be worth something.

Coming off the enormous box office success and a bunch of Oscar nominations for Good Will Hunting, indie director Gus Van Sant suddenly found himself with a great deal of studio clout. Ever the outsider artist, Van Sant decided to cash in all of that goodwill by finally realizing a long-held desire to do a shot-for-shot remake of Psycho—which, »

Secrecy Surrounding 1960’s ‘Psycho’ Went Off Without a Hitch

9 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” opened on June 16, 1960, the subject matter was shocking. By today’s standards, the most shocking thing about the film was its distribution — a slow rollout that lasted for months, even though Paramount and Hitchcock wanted to maintain secrecy. When Robert Bloch’s novel was published in 1959, Hitchcock bought all copies to keep the plot twists under wraps. Similarly, studio execs and theater owners were given no details about the film.

Psycho” opened on two Manhattan screens and in three other cities June 22. It bowed on 20 L.A. screens in August. These days, when viewers tweet film details during the first screening, months of secrecy would be unthinkable. But in 1960, most people cooperated. Hitchcock insisted no one be allowed to enter the theater after the movie started. His goal was to maintain suspense, but it became a marketing hook — and eventually became standard behavior for moviegoers. »

The Paradine Case

6 June 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This isn’t the only Alfred Hitchcock film for which the love does not flow freely, but his 1947 final spin on the David O. Selznick-go-round is more a subject for study than Hitch’s usual fun suspense ride. Gregory Peck looks unhappy opposite Selznick ‘discovery’ Alida Valli, while an utterly top-flight cast tries to bring life to mostly irrelevant characters. Who comes off best? Young Louis Jourdan, that’s who.

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

Director Michael Apted talks to us about his new film Unlocked, memories of making a Bond movie, and why thrillers make great cinema...

Over a career which stretches back to the 1960s, director Michael Apted has proved to be an extraordinarily versatile filmmaker. There's his ongoing series of Up television documentaries, which have charted the experiences of a range of British people over a period of 49 years and counting. There are his movies, which range from the Oscar-winning Gorillas In The Mist (1988) to the big-budget Bond entry The World Is Not Enough (1999). And then there's his TV work, which includes episodes of Rome and Masters Of Sex.

Bates Motel: how moving past Psycho made it a classic

When Bates Motel first premiered in 2013 it was hard to tell what to make of it. Pitched as a contemporary prequel to Psycho, it borrowed the iconography, set and visual style of the original film while updating it to the present day. Unlike Hannibal, which premiered around the same time and from the start drew a clear divide between itself and the earlier Anthony Hopkins films, Bates Motel seemed conflicted about its relationship to its source material. Hannibal, while certainly including moments of tribute to the films, was very much a fresh adaptation of Thomas Harris’ novels, »

Fahrenheit 451

18 April 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

François Truffaut’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s dystopian, illiterate future looks better than ever, but the scary part is that some of its oddest sci-fi extrapolations seem to be coming true. It’s a movie that truly grows on one. The Bernard Herrmann music score is one of the composer’s very best.

Exclusive Interview: Daniel Espinosa, director of Life

24 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amon Warmann chats with Life director Daniel Espinosa (spoilers follow)…

When we caught up with Daniel Espinosa to talk to him about Life – the Swedish director’s sixth feature – we asked him about how his latest movie differs from Alien, working with Ryan Reynolds post-Deadpool, and playing music on set while the actors were filming.

I really liked that there was none of the dumb decision making you sometimes see in movies like these…

Yes! For me that was very important. These are not high school students in a campus who have no idea what to do. They’re astronauts who have been trained to make the correct decision in difficult situations, and I wanted them to do that as much as possible.

This film has inevitably been compared to Alien – was there ever any worry on your part in terms of doing a mean alien is loose on »

Great Job, Internet!: An old Hitchcock interview reveals why he found humor in horror

9 March 2017 11:14 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Fans of the legendary Alfred Hitchcock know that the acclaimed suspense director was known for his sense of humor and for poking fun at himself. His introductions to his 1950s to 1960s CBS and NBC series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, for example, were full of macabre in-jokes, as was this promo for one of his later efforts, 1972’s Frenzy:

His eloquence and wit also made Hitchcock a valuable interview. The PBS Digital Studios series Blank On Blank recovers interview footage from notables like Frank Lloyd Wright, Jacques Cousteau, and Stephen King and pairs the dialogue with delightful accompanying animation. This latest installment from the Pacifica Radio Archives has Hitchcock chatting with Cullen Edwards in 1957 about his death-obsessed reputation, saying, “If I did a story about Cinderella, they would be waiting for the body to turn up.” He also comments on why he finds graveyards humorous and why making movies ...

Vertigo Screens at The Hi-Pointe Saturday Morning – Here are Alfred Hitchcock’s Ten Best Movies

7 March 2017 5:59 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list so here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Alfred Hitchcock’s ten best films:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo Screens at The Hi-Pointe This Saturday Morning

5 March 2017 6:01 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You shouldn’t keep souvenirs of a killing. You shouldn’t have been that sentimental.”

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, March 11th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

Let’s state this right from the top: Vertigo is one of the greatest films ever made. It’s not simply hyperbole that notables such as Leonard Maltin and Martin Scorsese have called the film Hitchcock’s masterpiece. To paraphrase Scorsese, rarely have we seen the complexity of a man’s thoughts and feelings portrayed so beautifully and compellingly onscreen. Everything in Vertigo – from the costumes to the location scenery to the performances of its lead actors is quite simply, perfect. Hitchcock »

Making ‘Feud’ a Visual Feast: On the Set With Bette and Joan

28 February 2017 1:08 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Feud: Bette and Joan,” which premieres on FX March 5, tells the tangled story of the rivalry between Hollywood icons Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. As its eight episodes unfold, it depicts many of the sordid, amusing and difficult things that transpire as the actresses make “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane,” as well the events that followed the release of the 1962 film that returned them to prominence.

But one of the many ironies of “Feud” is that, no matter how ugly the events or emotions on screen, the show itself is gorgeous to look at. Much of it is a celebration of Old Hollywood glamour, and even the “Feud’s” version of the ramshackle house at the center of “Baby Jane” was re-created with exacting care.

The luscious jewel tones of Joan’s wardrobe, the fastidious plastic coverings on her chairs, the earth-toned, New England feel of Bette’s homey interiors and her preference for capri pants »

The Manchurian Candidate and Jonathan Demme's filmmaking style

Ryan Lambie Feb 20, 2017

Thriller remake The Manchurian Candidate is a great showcase for director Jonathan Demme's use of the camera to evoke fear and empathy...

Iraq War veteran Ben Marco wakes up on a train with a jolt. For a second, he sees an apparition from the past sitting directly opposite him. Marco blinks, and the figure vanishes.

Jonathan Demme’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate is full of small yet jarring sequences like this: moments which take place in a familiar setting, but with something strange or somehow out of place thrown in. Not long after Marco wakes up on the train, he strikes up a begrudging conversation with a young woman, Rose (Kimberly Elise), who says she's seen him around. Rose appears to have taken »
