Daniel Day-Lewis movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Lincoln,’ ‘My Left Foot,’ ‘Phantom Thread,’ ‘There Will Be Blood’
In the summer of 2017 Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis surprised Hollywood, London, and the entire entertainment world when he revealed that he is retiring from acting and would make no more films. His final performance in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s recently-released “Phantom Thread” has brought Day-Lewis his sixth Oscar nomination and his eighth Golden Globe nom (losing there to Gary Oldman for “Darkest Hour”).

One of the most respected actors of his generation, Day-Lewis is the only man who has won three Oscars for Best Actor. Those victories were for “My Left Foot” (1989), “There Will Be Blood” (2007), and “Lincoln” (2012). In fact he is one of only three men to win acting Oscars three times; the others are Walter Brennan and Jack Nicholson. In addition, he has won two Best Actor awards each from the Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globes.

Most importantly (if retirement actually happens), he will have left

Bayard Johnson, Who Wrote ‘Tarzan’ and ‘Jungle Book’ Movies, Dies at 63

Bayard Johnson, a screenwriter and producer, died February 10 in Los Angeles after a long battle with cancer. He was 63.

Johnson wrote and produced feature films for Warner Bros., Disney, Sony Pictures, MGM/UA and 20th Century Fox. He made two feature films in Africa and wrote movies based on both the classic Tarzan character (1998’s “Tarzan and the Lost City”) and on Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” (1997’s “The Second Jungle Book: Mowgli & Baloo”).

With partner Bill Duke (director of “Deep Cover,” co-star of “Predator”), Johnson co-wrote a TV series for HBO and produced a feature film (2007’s “Cover”) about the HIV epidemic.

In Memoriam: How the Emmys Tributes Went

In Memoriam: How the Emmys Tributes Went
Special tributes during the Primetime Emmys to Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleton, Jonathan Winters and Gary David Goldberg, each of whom passed away in the past year, came as leadouts to commercials, beginning nearly 30 minutes into the ceremony.

Jane Lynch presented the tribute to “Glee” co-star Monteith.

“I’m here to say that all that warmth and that charm, that open-hearted quality we loved him for, was no act,” Lynch said, adding that his death was a reminder of the “painful” effects of addiction.

“For a generation that loved Cory so, this gifted and wonderful young man was worthy of your love,” Lynch said.

Edie Falco, co-star of Gandolfini on “The Sopranos,” grew emotional during her concluding tribute.

“His portrayal of Tony Soprano had such depth and dimension that a lot of people had trouble believing that’s not really who he was,” Falco said. “Jim was quite different.

Disney 53: Pocahontas

Directors: Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg

1995/ 81 Minutes

Est. budget: $55 million

Box Office: $346.1 million

Whilst half the staff of Disney was working on a little-known Hamlet adaptation, The Lion King, the other were working on effectively a version of Romeo and Juliet called Pocahontas.

It was regarded as being one the hardest films produced by the studio, due to its rich colour schemes, angular shapes and facial expressions, and was in production for a full five years. It paid off, however, and is regarded as one of the studio’s finest works.

It was the first Disney animated feature to be based on a real historical character, as well as established known history and folklore of the Native Americans of the era, and focuses on her relationship with the (real) English explorer/soldier/author, John Smith. It’s difficult to discern exactly how faithful an adaptation the film is (putting aside

Who was that masked man? The Legend of Klinton Spilsbury.
Resurrecting the Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp must’ve sounded like one of the all-time Hollywood no-brainers when it was pitched to Disney in 2011. After all, the mysterious masked man used to be the all-American icon with the greatest chase-music (“The William Tell Overture”), the greatest sidekick (Tonto), and the greatest catchphrase (“Hi-yo, Silver, away!”). Plus, though Depp is playing a boldly reimagined Tonto opposite Armie Hammer’s Ranger, he was reuniting with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the creative triumvirate that made Disney billions with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. But getting The Lone Ranger into

Film Review: ‘Tiger Eyes’

Film Review: ‘Tiger Eyes’
Like the much-beloved kid lit of its source author, “Tiger Eyes,” the first proper film adaptation of a Judy Blume novel, is effectively tailored to a very specific target viewer. For a certain type of contemplative teen girl, its sensitive handling of heavy material will surely prove affecting, though the pic sometimes veers too far to the sleepy end of low-key. In the end, it represents a solid blueprint for a later, better Blume adaptation, but that’s hardly anything to scoff at. Directed by the author’s son, Lawrence Blume (who adapted along with his mother), “Tiger” looks destined for a limited, if appreciative audience.

Shortly after her father is murdered in a robbery, taciturn New Jersey teen Davey (Willa Holland) and her family head out to stay with relatives in Los Alamos, N.M., home of the Manhattan Project, for a brief visit that stretches into an extended stay.
