Venice Film Review: ‘Mr. Six’

9 September 2015 3:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Kids these days,” sighs the lead character in “Mr. Six,” sounding like the grizzled hero in a late-career Clint Eastwood movie. Now well into his fifties, the neighborhood peacekeeper — played with stoical cool by China’s most popular film director, Feng Xiaogang — realizes just how little Beijing’s younger generation respects the old ways after confronting the gangsters who snatched his son. Constructed as the long, inward-gazing buildup to an epic showdown on a frozen lake, Guan Hu’s genre-subverting drama could just as easily be an elegy for a disappearing style of filmmaking — one that acknowledges the country’s obsession with flashy, street-racing culture, while determined to make a more substantive impact on a box office dominated by “Furious 7.”

Though executed with the professional heft of a big-studio production — which indeed it is, backed by Sino heavyweight Huayi Brothers — “Mr. Six” deliberately withholds many of the sensational payoffs »

After career-high 'American Sniper,' Clint Eastwood announces his next film

2 June 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whatever you might think of "American Sniper," it was a landmark moment for Clint Eastwood in a career already filled with landmark moments. The film was the biggest domestic moneymaker of 2014, raking in over $350 million, good for more than double Eastwood's previous high mark ($148 million for 2008's "Gran Torino"). So how is he following it up? By bringing another real-life persona to the screen. You probably remember the saga of Captain Chelsey "Sully" Sullenberger, who in January of 2009 forced an emergency landing/ditching in the Hudson River after engines on a New York-Charlotte flight were taken out by a large flock of birds. Dubbed the "Miracle on the Hudson," t's the kind of story that plays havoc on a fear of flying — that a flock of birds can take you down in an instant. Nevertheless, Sully's story garnered him a national spotlight, and now Eastwood is planning to bring »

Dead Right: How Dirty Harry Captured the ’70s Culture Wars

27 May 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Part I.

1971 was an incredibly violent year for movies. That year saw, among others, Tom Laughlin’s Billy Jack, with its half-Indian hero karate-chopping rednecks; William Friedkin’s The French Connection, its dogged cops stymied by well-heeled drug runners; Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, banned for the copycat crimes it reportedly inspired; and Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs, featuring the most controversial rape in cinema history. Every bloody shooting, sexual assault and death by penis statue reflected a world gone mad.

It seemed a reaction to America’s skyrocketing crime. Between 1963 and 1975, violent crimes tripled; riots, robberies and assassinations racked major cities. The antiwar and Civil Rights movements generated violent offshoots like the Weathermen and Black Panthers. Citizens blamed politicians like New York Mayor John Lindsay (the original “limousine liberal”), who proclaimed “Peace cannot be imposed on our cities by force of arms,” and Earl Warren’s Supreme Court, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Scott Eastwood, Riding Towards Movie Stardom

10 April 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Eastwood is starving. On a recent afternoon, the 29-year-old heartthrob barrels into a conference room at Twentieth Century Fox after a morning of press for his new movie, “The Longest Ride,” where he plays a bull-wrangling cowboy. He eyes the lunch buffet, unwrapping tinfoil and stacking two plates with chicken, fish and vegetables, a potluck for one. Then he sits down and realizes he might need to devour this meal with his bare hands. “I don’t have a fork,” says Eastwood, the son of screen legend Clint. “I don’t know what’s going on here.” A publicist rushes over with silverware. “Ah, ah, woo-hoo! You got some forks for us,” Eastwood says.

Even though he’s acted for 12 years, mostly in smaller roles, Eastwood’s career is now on the upswing. Eastwood has just arrived in New York from Hawaii, where he plays a Nsa agent in »

Film Review: ‘The Longest Ride’

6 April 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As spring perennials go, a new Nicholas Sparks movie has come to seem as inevitable as tax day and allergy season, and only mildly less irritating to the senses. Though the character names and model-perfect faces may change (ever so slightly), the place (coastal North Carolina) remains the same, as do the trials and tribulations facing the star-crossed lovers who traverse its shores. The formula is by now as proven (and critic-proof) as Marvel or Tyler Perry — so why tinker with it in the least? Rest assured, “The Longest Ride” does nothing of the sort as it parallels the fates of two couples from different eras navigating the usual Sparks-ian gauntlet of war, class relations, cataclysmic accidents and life-altering medical conditions. Appealing performances by a trio of second- and third-generation Hollywood kids keep this three-hankie twaddle more bearable than it deserves, but “Ride” will surely go the longest with »

9 Photos That Will Make You Wish Scott Eastwood Were Christian Grey

19 March 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Scott Eastwood appears in Treats! Magazine Issue 8, where he talks about his acting career, being the son of Clint Eastwood, and why he's shirtless all the time. We've developed a serious crush on Scott over the course of the past year, between all of the hot pictures for his upcoming role in The Longest Ride and the fact that he works out shirtless in jeans. We're quickly learning there's more to him than sexy shirtless snaps, though. Keep reading for some great quotes from his interviews and, of course, a seriously handsome photo shoot. On why he's shirtless all the time: "It's all in good fun. My friends will say, 'Put a shirt on!' But I grew up surfing and hanging out on the beach, so I've sort of always liked being shirtless." On whether his father wanted him to be an actor: "To be honest, he didn't care »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies

6 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all would like to believe that we have that someone special to look up to for guidance and direction. From time to time we practice the art of worship for the mentor that appears larger than life to us. Whether our designated mentors that we choose to follow are inspirational or insidious it does not matter because that yearning to follow in their footsteps are so great that we blindly give anything to replicate that original blueprint.

Maybe if one dreams of being a famous astronaut you designate Neii Armstrong or John Glenn as your mentoring heroes? Perhaps your foray into film criticism was ignited by Judith Crist, Vincent Canby or Siskel & Ebert? How about emulating your favorite actor or singer and following their paths to success?

Scott Eastwood Is Already Thinking About Having Kids, Sings Some Tina Turner

18 February 2015 5:16 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Scott Eastwood is following in his father’s footsteps of becoming a leading man on the big screen.

The 28-year-old actor scored the lead in the upcoming Nicholas Sparks’ book-turned-movie, The Longest Ride, out this April. In the highly-anticipated romantic flick, Scott plays Luke Collins, a champion bull rider fighting to save his family’s ranch – an adventurous role that helped him check one activity off his bucket list. But what else is on that list? Scott spilled all while chatting with ETonline.

“Mount Everest…. Kids -- two or three,” Scott answered, before adding he’s also hoping to do another film with his dad. Most recently, Scott appeared alongside his father in 2012’s Trouble with the Curve. He also worked with his legendary pops on Flags of Our Fathers, Invictus, and Gran Torino.
