Movie Review - Parkland (2013)

Parkland, 2013.

Directed by Peter Landesman.

Starring Zac Efron, Tom Welling, Billy Bob Thornton, Marcia Gay Harden, James Badge Dale, Ron Livingston, Kat Steffans, Paul Giamatti, Brett Stimely and Colin Hanks.

Synopsis:

A recounting of the chaotic events that occurred at Dallas' Parkland Hospital on the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Timely released to co-inside with the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, there’s no more poignant time to release Parkland, a film which tells the story of multiple real characters on the day of and few days following that event which changed the course of history. That doesn’t save it from being little more than a made-for-tv or History Channel movie.

I like the film’s intentions to tell a well-known story from the perspectives of the people whose names aren’t so well known, but whose actions are of vital importance.

John F. Kennedy Deathiversary: Who Played JFK The Best?

View Photo Gallery

As the country takes a moment to remember John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his assassination, we decided to look back on his last impacting in pop culture. In the five decades since his death, JFK’s story has been told countless times both on the big screen and the small one. Whether it’s a look at the younger years, like Patrick Dempsey in the TV movie, JFK: Restless Youth, or a controversial portrayal of his presidency, such as The Kennedys starring Greg Kinnear, actors have not shied away from taking JFK’s iconic look and thick Massachusetts accent.

While there have been a number of portrayals, no one has played JFK more than Brett Stimely, who has taken on the man four different times. His roles, while small, tend to capture the most familiar elements of the president. Compare that Rob Lowe, who

57th BFI London Film Festival Review - Parkland (2013)

Parkland, 2013.

Directed by Peter Landesman.

Starring Zac Efron, Tom Welling, Billy Bob Thornton, Marcia Gay Harden, James Badge Dale, Ron Livingston, Kat Steffans, Paul Giamatti, Brett Stimely and Colin Hanks.

Synopsis:

A recounting of the chaotic events that occurred at Dallas' Parkland Hospital on the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

John F. Kennedy’s assassination is a moment in history shrouded in conspiracy theories. Parkland aims to recreate the three days – beginning with the day the President was shot – through to the immediate aftermath and death of JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald. Well-documented and thoroughly researched, Parkland is the directorial-debut of Peter Landesman - a journalist himself seeking to ignore the myth and focus on the reality. ‘Parkland’ itself is the hospital Kennedy died within – and where, days later, Oswald was rushed to. Clearly capitalising on an intriguing and important story, Parkland fails to match the cinematic scale of the event.

Exclusive Interview With Peter Landesman On Parkland

First-time writer-director Peter Landesman hopes to showcase the emotional and physical struggles that American citizens and officials struggled to deal with in his new drama, Parkland.

Parkland recounts the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, as it follows the assassination of JFK (Brett Stimely), as he was riding in a parade with his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy (Kat Steffens). The story weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances immediately following the president’s death.

Among those who first-handily contended with the murder were such civilians as the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital who tried to save Kennedy, including Dr. Malcom Perry (Colin Hanks) and Dr. Charles ‘Jim’ Carrico (Zac Efron); an unwitting cameraman, Abraham Zapruder (Paul Giamatti), who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; and Robert Oswald (James Badge Dale), the brother of

“Professor Creepy’s Scream Party” Pilot Premiere!

“Professor Creepy’s Scream Party” Pilot Premiere!
Over the weekend, Dave Shelton — an award winning writer, cartoonist, and voice actor, with a varied resume that includes Everybody Loves Raymond, National Lampoon, Tweety And Sylvester and Against Type — and Tami Zorge hosted the world premiere of his pilot Professor Creepy’S Scream Party at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.

The “Garage TV” pilot, which was shot in only one day and edited in one more, is a live action variety show that is billed as a retro mash up of sixties kids shows, horror hosts, and dance shows. Picture the Hilarious House Of Frankenstein meets Vampira meets American Bandstand, with a Vincent Price-esque mad scientist as host. How does that not pique one’s interest?

The event is a testament to how hard work can pay off. The pilot process was described to me as a Living In Oblivion-esque experience, with financiers backing out, the lead actor
