  • Frank Finlay dies at 89 (British Oscar-nominated actor)

    Pakistan Today ^ | January 31, 2016 | Agencies
    ...In a wide-ranging career across stage and screen, Finlay starred as Porthos in the Three Musketeer films of the 1970s, alongside Oliver Reed, Richard Chamberlain and Michael York, and opposite Susan Penhaligon in the taboo-challenging television series Bouquet Of Barbed Wire. He also took the lead role in Dennis Potter's serial, Casanova, and starred in Shaft In Africa, the follow-up to the famous black private detective film starring Richard Roundtree. It was in a supporting role to Laurence Olivier in Othello back in 1965, for which he was nominated for an Oscar in 1965...

    Variety ^ | January 22, 2016 | Ramin Setoodeh
    One of the most anticipated movies at this year's Sundance Film Festival also turned out to be among the most divisive. On Friday afternoon, the Eccles Theater had to turn away hundreds of movie fans, and even a few industry VIPs, at the packed premiere of "Swiss Army Man," starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano. But the bizarre fable about a lost man (Dano) who befriends a farting corpse (Radcliffe) could win the festival's award for the most walk-outs, as a continuous stream of audience members kept standing up and bolting for the door throughout the film.

    Saw The Revenant the other day with a good friend of mine. I can't say I've ever seen a movie that was filmed as beautifully as this one. The visuals and shots were simply amazing, and the style was very dream-like. In fact, the protagonist often had very vivid and bizarre dreams, but "reality" itself was also very odd and surreal in the way it was filmed. You sort of get the feeling that there is a spiritual undercurrent that you get a sense of in how the scenes were shot, and that is indeed a theme in the film's...

    WaPo ^ | 1/15/16 | Adam Goldman and Greg Miller
    It is the most fateful moment in a movie that purports to present a searingly accurate account of the 2012 attacks that left four Americans dead in Benghazi, Libya: a scene in which the highest-ranking CIA operative at a secret agency compound orders his security team to “stand down” rather than rush off to rescue U.S. diplomats under siege less than a mile away. According to the officer in charge of the CIA’s Benghazi base that night, the scene in the movie is entirely untrue. “There never was a stand-down order,” said the base chief known as Bob, speaking publicly...

    History records that The Wizard Of Oz was edited by one Blanche Sewell, an Oklahoman and thwarted actress who also cut together such memorable films as Red Dust, Go West, and Grand Hotel during her 25-year career in Hollywood. But what if Oz had been assembled instead by an extremely diligent file clerk, one who cherished order and neatness over meaning and context? That is the unlikely scenario behind "Of Oz The Wizard," a bizarre and thorough alternate edit of the 1939 family classic by filmmaker Matt Bucy. He has chopped The Wizard Of Oz, all 101 minutes of it,...

    **SNIP** Trump, the billionaire developer, former reality TV star and Republican front runner, was shown in the 51-minute film making his December call for the United States to bar all Muslims from the country as his supporters cheered. It was shown between two clips of militant leader Anwar al-Awlaki, killed in a drone strike in Yemen in 2011, saying Muslims in the United States would face a choice between leaving for Islamic countries or staying at home to fight the West. The film was distributed on Twitter on Friday by the al-Kataib Media Foundation, an Islamist militant organisation, SITE reported.

Did you know that the Star Wars saga most famous spacecraft featured a cockpit clearly inspired to a World War II heavy bomber? Well, the iconic greenhouse-style window of the Millennium Falcon was designed with the style of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, a strategic bomber flying 30 years before Han Solo and Chewbacca first appeared driving the iconic spacecraft into the hyperspace, in mind.

  • Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' is the best, most thoughtful Western movie in ages

    12/22/2015 6:19:17 PM PST · by Perdogg · 109 replies
    Early on in “The Hateful Eight,” John Ruth (Kurt Russell) keeps repeating the line “slow like molasses.” Later on, another character informs his gang that their mission is going to take patience. This describes “The Hateful Eight” well, too: It deserves your patience. “The Hateful Eight,” the latest film by Quentin Tarantino, shows the very odd path that one of the greatest living filmmakers has decided to take. While many directors start out conventional and then experiment once they have clout, Tarantino has abandoned much of the nonlinear storytelling on which he made his name (with "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | 12/17/15 | Michael J. Svigel
    Since the saga’s launch in 1977, the irresistible force of the Star Wars phenomenon has affected young and old alike. It’s nearly impossible to get through a day without being brushed, bumped, or bombarded by a Star Wars image, allusion, or advertisement. This week week, the seventh installment, The Force Awakens, hits theaters. No less than Steven Spielberg predicts it will be “the biggest movie ever.” So why do so many across generations, cultures, and religions find Star Wars so captivating? Is it the dynamic characters? The spectacular score? The breathtaking special effects? Sure, these contribute to the magic of Star Wars. But I don’t think any of them can explain the mystery that...

    The Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker discusses his new film 'Where to Invade Next,' gun violence in America, the Sandy Hook anniversary, and his anti-Trump campaign. Trump Tower is, in many ways, a 68-story monument to the hypocrisy of Donald Trump. The Midtown Manhattan monstrosity, whose gold entryway sign bearing his name screams off-Strip Vegas casino, used concrete from a firm owned by the Genovese and Gambino crime families. It was built by 200 undocumented Polish immigrants who claimed they were paid meager off-the-book wages. And if that weren't enough, Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, who massacred thousands of his people,...

    A license to kill is also a license to not kill,” M lectures his new boss in the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre.” Well, it’s not a license to bore as much as this bloated drag manages to do. After a smashing opening sequence with a rooftop chase set against Day of the Dead observances in Mexico City, we’re plunged into a patchy plot (basically the same as the last “Mission: Impossible” outing) that’s little more than an excuse for random homages to the series’ illustrious past — reminding us how utterly mediocre this one is.

But many dont end up owing enough in state taxes, and the credits are legally transferable, meaning that filmmakers can sell them on average...

The Walk is based on the infamous story of tightrope walker Philippe Petit, who walked across a wire connected to the Twin Towers in 1974. The movie was shot in 3D, making the already terrifying heights actually come to life. So much so that audiences are literally vomiting at the sight of it. The Walk held press screening this week and the reception was queasy. But at least it wasn't because the movie was terrible (that's left for films...
