The Giver – The Review

14 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Once again let’s spin the dial on the multiplex time machine and return to another dismal possible future (it’s not a better world usually, is it?). So, is the planet a desolate, scorched hellscape much like in The Rover or the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road? Well, not really. Is it a harshly divided class system pitting the have against the have-nots as in The Hunger Games or Snowpiercer? Nope, not at all. This film harkens back to the cold, antiseptic futures of Things To Come, Logan’S Run, and even Sleeper. But like the aforementioned games series and the recent Divergent, this film features a teenage hero (male this time) and is based on a series of young adult novels, one that’s twenty years-old (predating those two). And while those other Ya-based flicks feature physical challenges and violent competitions, this story is more about emotions and memories. »

Shared Interests Have Led New Mexico Unions and Government to Work Together

14 August 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over the past decade, thanks to its aggressive tax rebate, New Mexico has positioned itself as a filmmaking and TV production magnet that’s attracted over $2 billion in spending — including such projects as “Breaking Bad,” the new “Manhattan” series, “Transcendence,” “Transformers 2,” “Terminator Salvation,” “True Grit” and “Cowboys & Aliens.”

But despite that success story, the state’s local unions also face some unique challenges, says Jon Hendry, business agent for Iatse Local 480. “We have a Republican governor, Susana Martinez, who’s indicated that she’s not particularly union-friendly, and we have a robust union, which was very close to the last administration,” he says.

But the two sides share many interests, which has led to a fruitful compromise. “After three years we’ve finally worked out a truce, if not a warm relationship, and both parties understand that we have to work together for our common goals,” Hendry adds.

Watch a supercut of some of cinematographer Roger Deakins' best work

13 August 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've spent the better part of the last few months diving into the catalog of cinematographer Roger Deakins, starting with Michael Radford's "Nineteen Eighty Four" and soaking up each and every indelible image he's given us over the last three decades. I imagine I'll write something up soon enough, as he'll surely be in the thick of things again this season with his work on Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," but in the meantime, here's a delicious video exploration of some of his work. The video — pieced together by Plot Point Productions — leans heavily on the latter-day stuff. Lots of "No Country," "Jesse James," "Revolutionary Road," "Jarhead," "True Grit," etc. Probably that's because all of those are available in higher definition formats, but it would be great to see more of the striking imagery from "Sid and Nancy" or "Kundun" or little-seen stuff like "Mountains of the Moon" slip in. »

Comic-Con Helped Josh Brolin Understand Thanos Role Even More

8 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just recently, we got our first official look at Josh Brolin as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy. Even if you haven't seen the film, Marvel revealed a first look photo at the True Grit and No Country for Old Men star as the cosmic villain who will end up creating tons of problems for The Avengers in the future of the comic book studio's cinematic universe. We're not sure when we'll next see the big bad guy pop up on the big screen, but Brolin is aware of at least one upcoming appearance, and he told IGN as much when he talked about how he came to the role, and how Comic-Con helped him understand the character even more. First of all, keeping things vague, Brolin knows some of Thanos' future plans: “I know what one appearance is going to be for sure. There’s one or two that I don’t know. »

Video of the Day: Roger Deakins and Coen Brothers supercut

5 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, cinematographer Roger Deakins is one of the greatest working DPs today, having earned 11 Oscar nominations and never won. He’s like the Susan Lucci of the technical categories.

But he got that way because for years he’s been consistently collaborating with the Coen Brothers on some of their most iconic films, everything from Fargo to O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink and No Country for Old Men. The man is a master, most recently making sinister, wintery chills in last year’s Prisoners.

Thanks to Blag Films, you can now see a short supercut of some of Deakins’ finest shots among his collaboration with the Coens (with the unfortunate exception of The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy). While only limiting it to Coens films eliminates the chance to see some »

A Spectacular Collaboration: Roger Deakins and the Coen Brothers

3 August 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The collaboration between the Coen Brothers and cinematographer Roger Deakins is spotlighted in this Blag Films supercut featuring moments from films such as Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, and quite a few other simply beautiful-looking films. And if these shots seem astonishingly well composed, well, then that’s due not just to Deakins’ mastery but to the Coens’ penchant for scouting, pre-production and storyboarding everything in advance. The shots in this video, with their precise time of days, frequent use of high angles and careful arrangement of what’s in the frame are clearly […] »

DVD Review: 'Unforgiven'

29 July 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Released to widespread critical and audience acclaim back in 1992, Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning revenge tale Unforgiven is fondly remembered as a valiant last stand by an American movie genre that had been slowly dying a death for decades. The West, as it transpired, had been well and truly won, despite several sporadic attempts to spur the old horse back into life (see Open Range, the Coen brothers' True Grit and, most recently, Quentin Tarantino's revisionist Django Unchained). Now, 22 years on from Eastwood's original offering, director Lee Sang-il presents Yurusarezaru mono (2013), a loose remake transposed to nineteenth century feudal Japan, with cowboys replaced by samurai. »

Marvel Confirms Josh Brolin as Thanos in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and Beyond

26 July 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thanos, Marvel's most cosmic villain, now has a face as Josh Brolin joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The celebrated actor can first be seen and heard as the Mad Titan in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, in theaters August 1, and will subsequently play Thanos in future Marvel Studios films.

Here's what producer Kevin Feige had to say about Josh Brolin portraying Thanos.

"Josh brings all the weight and stature necessary for a character as iconic and significant as Thanos. We're incredibly excited for fans to see more of him as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand."

Brolin's career began with the cult-classic The Goonies, and in his 29-year career since then the actor has taken on countless roles in both film and television, including critically-acclaimed performances in No Country for Old Men, W. and True Grit. In that time, Brolin has worked with such esteemed directors as Oliver Stone, »

6 Things We Learned From Jeff Bridges' Insightful Reddit Ama

25 July 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When it came to offering deep and hilarious insights into his life and career, the Dude most certainly abided in his recent Reddit Ama. Promoting the upcoming film adaptation of The Giver, Jeff Bridges opened up on a variety of interesting topics – including his favorite scene from The Big Lebowski and that one time he bumped into the Dalai Lama.

These six tidbits only reinforce that Bridges is one of Hollywood's most well-rounded bad-asses – and that's more than just, like, our opinion, man.

5 Movies Due For a Remake

21 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What keeps any story or idea relevant is continuous adaptation. The blanket statement that “remakes suck” discounts a lot of great remakes and ignores the fact that mankind has been retelling and remixing stories forever. A good example of reinvention is Batman, who will see his 4th cinematic incarnation and is popular worldwide and across all ages. Buck Rogers on the other hand hasn’t had a new movie since 1939 and grows more irrelevant with each passing year.

All five movies that I think are due for a remake are 15 years or older. Four of these are adaptations from other media. For each movie I break down their faults or misfortunes, the opportunity in the source material or potential in a remake, how a remake makes fiscal sense, its current and past remake status, and finally a bit of fanboy wishful thinking.

“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

Hailee Steinfeld On 'Begin Again,' Working With Mark Ruffalo & Keira Knightley

17 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Hailee Steinfeld, best known for playing opposite Jeff Bridges in the Oscar-nominated True Grit, takes on a lighter and more modern role in John Carney’s Begin Again.

Hailee Steinfeld On 'Begin Again'

Steinfeld’s character Violet is the daughter of Ruffalo’s music-business executive Dan, who is estranged from her mother, played by Catherine Keener. Working with Ruffalo and Keira Knightley – a singer/songwriter in the romantic comedy – was an experience the 17-year-old Steinfeld won’t soon forget. One of her highlights on the Begin Again set was when she met Knightley for the first time.

“I met Keira for the first time on camera, which was not necessarily planned, but that was exciting,” Steinfeld told uInterview exclusively. “It was the first time I ever did anything organic like that, so that was pretty cool.”

From their first meeting on set, Knightley, 29, became something of a mentor to Steinfeld, »

Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters

12 July 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The old saying goes is that if you want to win an Academy Award then the best way is to undertake playing a disabled part or portraying a famous personality in a biopic. In some cases, actors have accomplished both themes and reached their Oscar-attaining goals (see Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker or Daniel-Day Lewis in My Left Foot for instance).

In Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters we will look at the top movie characters that became Academy Award-winning figures within their films. Interestingly, there have been a couple of performers that were real-life disabled individuals that convincingly embodied their fictional disabled alter egos (see Harold Russell from The Best Days of Our Lives or Marlee Matlin from Children of a Lesser God).

Anyway, this selection of Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters are (in alphabetical order according to film title): »

“Haht” of Gold: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actors from Massachusetts

11 July 2014 1:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.

As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

The Duke Yucks It Up In "McClintock!"

2 July 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Duke. There was only one man like him. The craggy face and squinted baby-blue eyes, with that drawling, patient voice that commanded authority with every “Pilgrim.” Those who knew him on set said that he was a true “presence,” and not that many stars were or are. He was a cinematic titan; still holding the record for the most leads roles (142) and a timeless icon of a certain man in a certain era. With a career of mostly dramas, Wayne discovered a funny bone with 1960’s North to Alaska, directed by Henry Hathaway, who would later get the actor his first and only Oscar for the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. With two ensemble epics just under his belt, The Longest Day and How The West Was Won, Wayne moved handedly back into the spotlight with McLintock!, a western slapstick riff with good values and men being men. »

Watch This: 'Shadows In The Valley' - A Tribute to Dp Roger Deakins

2 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of the real masters of modern cinematography is Roger Deakins, a British cinematographer who has been nominated a whopping 11 times for the Best Cinematography Oscar, yet hasn't won one yet. Every year he always seems to end up a talking point during the awards season, because every year he continues to turn out amazing work. Plot Point Productions has decide to pay tribute to Roger Deakins in a video they've just released called "Deakins: Shadows In The Valley", a five-minute montage of some of his best shots and visual techniques. From Skyfall to The Assassination of Jesse James to Fargo to Prisoners to True Grit, his work is always astounding to see, and this video beautifully highlights some of his finest work so far. Enjoy. That wonderful music is from The Assassination of Jesse James, the track "Song for Bob" by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. For more, see Plot Point's Vimeo page. »

'Begin Again' (2014) Movie Review

27 June 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It has been seven years since writer/director John Carney's breakout hit Once, which made stars out of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and ended up winning an Oscar for Best Original Song. The film was fantastic, not only for its music, but the delicate nature of its authentic and welcoming storytelling. There have been a couple of projects between then and now for Carney, but his latest feature, Begin Again is, for all intents and purposes, his true follow-up effort to the 2006 success. Disappointingly, everything that made Once so great is absent from this film, which is nothing more than a soap opera-level melodrama. Set in New York, the story follows Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a washed-up record producer, and his eventual professional relationship with Gretta (Keira Knightley), a singer-songwriter that has just broken things off with her boyfriend (Adam Levine) after he finds success in the music biz »
