I just watched Jaws again a couple weeks ago, and I remember thinking about how great Roy Scheider was in that movie, even with Robert Shaw getting most of the spotlight. Loved him in The French Connection too, he was the perfect contrast to Gene Hackman.

Dody Goodman (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25333679/), maybe best known around here as Blanche from Grease, has died as well.  On a related note: Perhaps I should finally watch Grease.

I just read a great interview with Carlin (it was his last) in Psychology Today. (http://blogs.psychologytoday.com/blog/brainstorm/200806/george-carlins-last-interview)
Title: George Carlin
Post by: 1SO on June 24, 2008, 10:49:45 PM
"Perhaps the worst thing that can happen is to reach into the refrigerator and come out with something that you cannot identify at all. You literally do not know what it is. Could be meat, could be cake."

In the 80's, I used to perform stand-up comedy. I loved stand-up comedians, and would record Carson and Letterman before going to sleep so the next day I could watch their opening monologues and any comedian they would bring on the show. Back then, HBO would air one-hour shows, about once a month, featuring the best in the business. And every year, we'd get a new special from George Carlin.

"Here is a message from the National Institute of Pancakes: It reads, and I quote, “F**k waffles.”

Carlin was one of my favorite comedians of all time. People who didn't like his humor often were turned off by how much he cursed. He was fearlessly profane. (Many remember his "Seven Dirty Words", but years later he updated the list with about 15 minutes of other things you're not allowed to say on television.)

"Swimming isn't a sport. Swimming is a way to keep from DROWNING."

Carlin was a master of comic timing and delivery. To make his points, he could speak fast and cranky, like a crazy old coot and suddenly raise his voice, as if shouting out a moment of realization. The best example of this may be his legendary bit "A Place For My Stuff" (This is a good time to mention that many great bits from Carlin can be found on Youtube.)

Way before Jim Carrey, Carlin could stretch, twist and pinch his face into all sorts of expressions. He'd come off like a kindly uncle or an intuitive scholar one moment, and instantly transform into an angry New Yorker or a dangerously crazed homeless man. He was loose limbed, energetic and dominated the stage. (One HBO special was done in theatre-in-the-round and he kept the whole room going.)

"About this time, someone is telling you to get on the plane. "Get on the plane. Get on the plane." I say, "f**k you, I'm getting IN the plane! IN the plane! Let Evil Knievel get ON the plane! I'll be in here with you folks in uniform! There seems to be less WIND in here!"

His biggest influence on me (and many other comedians and screenwriters) was his love of language, and the way we've chosen to mangle it. When going through my favorite George Carlin bits in my mind, I think of "A Place for My stuff" and "Baseball vs. Football", but I keep coming back to "The Airline Safety Announcement" from Jammin in New York.

"In the unlikely event..." This is a very suspect phrase, especially coming, as it does, from an industry that is willing to lie about arrival and departure times. "In the unlikely event of a sudden change in cabin pressure..." ROOF FLIES OFF! "An oxygen mask will drop down in front of you. Place the mask over your face and breathe normally." Well, I have no problem with that. I always breathe normally when I'm in a 600 mile-an-hour uncontrolled vertical dive."

"When two planes almost collide, they call it a near miss. It's a near hit. A collision is a near miss."

Carlin could tear apart the English language and look at it from angles I couldn't imagine. Every time I write, I hope for one moment of insight, a new way of looking at the everyday. Carlin wrote new material all the time, producing stand-up albums, DVD's and books. Even when he appeared on the talk shows he'd have all fresh stuff. His mind was always questioning and creating. George Carlin is my hero, and he will be deeply missed.

I had no idea the line was used in the Front, I had only heard it as Carlin stand-up. I'm not sure what came first. Of course the Front was not written by Woody Allen so if there was theft, the Woodman is in the clear.

So, this isn't really film related, it's more me related. On Father's Day, our dog Godfrey accidentally killed a chihuahua in the dog park. There was no way to anticipate it, but the circumstances of the law and everything else, cause us to have to euthenize him yesterday afternoon. So, that's why I was gone so long. No need to say anything, just wanted to let everyone who wants to know, know. It was horrible, but we're doing ok and we don't regret having him for the brief time we did. He was great.

This is probably one of the worst examples of an owner completely stiffing a fanbase I can remember, and after having lived in Minnesota most of my life, I'm no stranger to owners CINECAST! ing their fans over. It's probably worse than Robert Irsay packing up the Baltimore Colts in the middle of the night and shipping them to Indy. Seattle has a great fanbase, they've got a young up-and-coming team with a burgeoning superstar in Kevin Durant and they're in a city with legions of sponsorship opportunities. The financial gain from moving to OKC is minimal at best, the only reason for this move is so the NBA can show all its fans it can do anything it wants, and if you don't want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to replace a perfectly satisfactory arena then screw you. This just gives me yet another reason to never watch professional basketball.

Oh, and to keep this movie related, Ray Allen was really great in He Got Game, wasn't he?

Jeff MacKay  (1948 - 2008)

You could always tell it was going to be a good episode of Magnum P.I. when Mac showed up (or that guy pretending to be Mac).  :'(

MacKay was also the voice of Fireflight on the Transformers series.

Awwww  :(   

The best Magnum ever remains the one with Magnum going after Ivan for Mac's murder.

And I loved Jeff MacKay on Tales of the Gold Monkey, early 80s series.  I think I was one of about 5 faithful viewers.

Actually there's a little TOTGM fan presence on the net and apparently they've had reunions of the show cast over the years, and Jeff MacKay was an enthusiastic part of those.  Which is kind of cool.

Is that meant to be Don? They called him Jack.
With deepest apologies, the man in the trailer I posted is Hal Douglas...the "other" "In A World..." guy.

Douglas is known in the film industry as the "In a world ..." guy because many of his trailers have begun with these words, and his voice has immortalized them (although Don LaFontaine claims to have actually created the catchphrase). His voice can also be heard as the "trailer announcer" in the 2006 movie, The Holiday.
Because he has recorded so many trailers through the years, he has sometimes been mistaken for Don LaFontaine, although they sound considerably different. Douglas specializes in a more lighthearted and warm delivery and LaFontaine has more attitude. Douglas also has a more gravelly voice. Hal Douglas has been described by a Miramax publicist as "perhaps the most recognizable trailer voice in the business."

I hope these two got along.  It would be great to get a copy of them having a conversation.

[I replaced the Comedian trailer with LaFontaine's personal favorite... The Elephant Man.]

Infinite Jest is a difficult place to start. I would recommend Girl with Curious Hair for his fiction and A Supposedly Fun Thing I Will Never Do Again for his essays. In a very short period of time they will totally blow you away. I cannot look at David Letterman, David Lynch, or the Jeopardy! game show the same way ever again.

Just saw this. I'm not sad, but I'm touched. Updike's "Lucid Eye in Silver Town" was the story that made me aware of the short story. All the short stories that we had to read before "Lucid Eye" meant nothing to me. It was either my teacher's enthusiasm for this story or the story itself that made me realize how great literature can be in its short form.

I think I still prefer short stories to novels, and when I think about why that is, I think about "Lucid Eye." I've never re-read it, and I'm afraid I'd be disappointed if I did. I think I prefer my distorted memory.

Two of my favorite films I enjoy watching her whenever it's on are The Parent Trap remake and Blow-Dry.  OK, maybe they're not art films but I found them entertaining and her performance to be full of radiance.  She will be sorely missed.

Film-maker Cardiff dies aged 94

Cinematographer and director Jack Cardiff, who actress Marilyn Monroe once described as "the best in the world", has died aged 94.

He was best known for his work on movies such as The African Queen and Sons and Lovers, and was awarded an Oscar for Black Narcissus in 1948.

The filmmaker was also presented with an Honorary Oscar in 2001.

Born to two music hall artists, he grew up in the theatre, resulting in a showbusiness career spanning 90 years.

He moved into film as a runner on the 1928 drama The Informer, then progressed to work as a camera operator and, eventually, cinematographer.

In an article for The National Gallery in 2007, Cardiff described his early film set experiences.

"I suppose I was much less than an apprentice when I first went behind the camera," he wrote.

"I was a runner, whose main job was to supply the German director with Vichy water because he had a problem with flatulence.".

He also described how, as a child, he used to watch art directors work in theatres, painting the backdrops and setting up the lights.

"I was fascinated by two men up in the wings, one on each side of the stage, following the actors with a spotlight," he wrote.

"I spent a lot of time with them and a stirring was born in me which I later recognised as an urge to create. Light and colour became my world."

In 1937 he shot Wings of the Morning, the first film in Britain to be shot in Technicolor.

He also worked with cinema greats Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe in the 1957 movie The Prince and the Showgirl.

He was made an OBE in 2000.

Inspiration

In 2001, he took part in an interview with readers of the BBC news website, in which he revealed he would have been a painter if he had not worked in film.

In fact much of his work was inspired by impressionist painters - he said the lighting and colour palette of Black Narcissus "was inspired by Vermeer".

Cardiff was admired by many in the film industry, including Martin Scorsese.

The director once described the 18-minute dance sequence in 1948's The Red Shoes as "a moving painting".

Scorsese added the cinematographer could "paint with the camera".

When asked which films he was most proud of, Cardiff said the "successful" ones had really made their mark.

"Naturally, I am proud of successful films that I have enjoyed working on like The Red Shoes and the Black Narcissus and I have had a certain satisfaction from that.

"But the films that I am most proud of - the film for instance that I made under great difficulty, Sons and Lovers, I wanted to make it into a good film because the book is marvellous and I didn't want to let the author down."

RIP Jack, you did some amazing work.

Those references to painting are apt. I went to a conversation between Cardiff and Ian Christie at the National Gallery in London in 2006 (eh, maybe it was 2007?) and you could tell then that he was already suffering from senility, as he kept telling the same 3-4 stories over and over, regardless of whatever Christie asked him. But he was totally charming all the same, and did make it clear how much of what he tried to do was copying from Old Masters.

He paid up in civil court though, too me that is the same thing. Its like saying OJ was innocent.

yr thinking of OJ, jacko didn't have a civil court suit brought against him.  he settled the 93 allegations out of court.

I know, but settling=guilt no? Even though you hear that nonsense about settling while admitting no guilt. I know if I was accused of the worst crime imaginable I would not settle if I was not guilty.

No. It is more important now than ever to point out that he was a bad person. Otherwise, you are saying that its ok to be a pedophile as long as you are really good at something we all enjoy.

I'm not saying it shouldn't be totally swept under the rug, but it's certainly a topic that has been a big deal for more than 10 years now so it's not like it hasn't been talked about to death.  No one is saying it's ok to be a pedophile (allegedly).

So suspicions of pedophilia are valid, but that doesn't make him a pedophile. Adding, if any of the recent news reports did call him a pedophile, they'd probably be susceptible of being brought to court for defamation. CINECAST! Capturing the Friedmans, have you seen M?

Jackson had enough money, so if he were to not want to see the spectacle carried out for an extremely long time, that would be another reason for settling. Anyway, the notion that a man accused of acting upon pedophilia (or hebephilia or whatever), can't be appreciated or remembered for anything else is absurd, I think.

yes he had an absurd lifestyle and didn't really know what social mores he was even breaking or how a normal person is supposed to act - see the post accusal interviews - the guy lived in a bubble for 45 of his 50 years.  The addictions to medication on top of that.  Without any proof ever being uncovered I have a hard time accusing him of what the fathers of the two boys did (I think in each case other members of their families said nothing ever happened).  The biggest shame is that I really thing the renaissance of his career was about to start.  The sold out London shows, a planned 3 year world tour a new album were all in the works and I was really hoping to catch the man live.  Been listening to MJ for the past 24 hrs now and the music speaks for itself.  not to mention the sheer talent as an entertainer which the world has now lost.

His celebrity (at least in the US, not sure about Canada) has grown quite a bit over the last few months.  He's got some show on Discovery and he was hitting the talk shows.  His appearance on Conan with his pitchman partner was good stuff.

RIP John Hughes (http://www.tmz.com/2009/08/06/john-hughes-dies/)

wow, that royally hella sucks.

Seriously, I'm shocked.  He's made some damn good movies.  Though I often find him overrated at times, I do love to watch Ferris Bueller all the time whenever it's on.  It never gets old.  The Breakfast Club I feel is overrated though I do enjoy watching She's Having a Baby, Sixteen Candles, and some of the stuff he wrote like National Lampoon's Vacation (one of my parents' favorite films ever) Home Alone, and Pretty in Pink.  I'm kinda dismayed over the fact that his last film that he did was Curly Sue which I didn't like at all.

If you don't want to be dismayed, you should definately no look at his list or recent writing credits (Beethoven's 5th?!). What happened? Is there some story I missed? He will be missed though.

Though I often find him overrated at times, I do love to watch Ferris Bueller all the time whenever it's on.  It never gets old.  The Breakfast Club I feel is overrated though ...

In my world those two sentences are exactly reversed.  The Breakfast Club is the one I could watch again and again; I've identified with different characters every time I've watched it.  And had different thoughts--one thing I've often wondered is what happened to the different characters in the immediate aftermath of that day, and what became of them 5, 10, 20 years later.  I hope they don't actually remake The Breakfast Club, but a sort of Big-Chillish followup (I'm pretty sure all the actors would be in, Molly Ringwald seems to be the only one with a regular paycheck at the moment) would be interesting to me.  Maybe they all found each other on Facebook and decided to have a meet up.  Maybe they all came back for the funeral of the principal.

OTOH I have never liked Ferris Bueller.  It's clever and it has its moments but Ferris himself is way too glib and careless for me.  I didn't like him, and Ididn't like the way he didn't care about getting his friends in trouble.  I mostly remember being stressed out like Cameron over the Ferrari.  It probably doesn't help that I was probably a big sister very much like Jennifer Gray's character...I dunno.  It rubbed me the wrong way when it came out and it never grew on me later.

I'd like to speak openly about the passing of John Hughes.

I'm sorry he left us.  I'm sorry he's passed on.  But I'm not getting all personally weepy about it and I think I know why.

His early films were all very personal to me.  He spoke to my generation and I think The Breakfast Club is not only one of the Best films ever made, but it's THE time capsule film of my generation.

I didn't mind so much when he attempted to aim older with Planes, Trains and She's Having A Baby.  But starting with Home Alone, I felt he completely abandoned my generation for kids and slapstick comedy.  He abandoned directing after 1991's Curly Sue.  For years I waited for him to return, and after 1998, he just disappeared entirely.  By then I gave up the hope he might come back and share his talent and genius with us once more.

So I think I'm not too sad about it because I dealt with his loss over 10 years ago.

I know it's not film-related but with the recent death of Les Paul.  This is a pretty bad year for music.  Dickinson though means a bit more to me because he produced one of my all-time favorite albums:

I loved that he mentioned Roadhouse, but there really isn't much similarity.  Yojimbo is all about playing two sides against one another.  In Roadhouse Dalton is most certainly on the "good guys" side.  (Not to hijack the thread)  RIP Swayze.

I'm asking around, and discovering that while Eric Rohmer is inarguably a world class filmmaker, most people have not included his works in their cinema education.  We study Fellini, and Bergman and Bunuel but not Rohmer.  I've only seen Claire's Knee myself and tjwells is right, I find the breezy dialogue to be soothingly hypnotic.

Varda, Resnais, Demy and Marker are sometimes grouped in with the New Wave, they form the "Left Bank" contingent with the Cahiers guys (Godard, Rohmer, Truffaut, Chabrol, Rivette) being the "Right Bank".

All of them are still working except for Truffaut, Demy and Rohmer.

If you can watch them in order, there's no reason not to, in my opinion.

Although I do (sort of) agree, the most accesible starting point being My Night at Maud's. Though I'd go the other way with my second choice, and say Pauline at the Beach.

It's weird, yesterday in this 7 Habits of Highly Effective People class I had to take at work, we watched a little video on Wooden and all then had a debate about whether or not he was still alive.

Too bad most college coaches are scumbags these days, need more guys like him.

I'm to lazy to read it.

But here's what the prez had to say:
Quote
A message from Baylor President Ken Starr:

You have no doubt heard today that the University of Colorado at Boulder has accepted an invitation to join the Pac-10 Conference. While we are disappointed to learn of this news, it is important to realize that the situation is still very fluid, and any realignment is likely to take years to complete. In any event, the Big 12 will be competing for at least another two years. You should also know that Baylor is continuing to seek as much unity as possible among the members of our conference and to fight for cohesiveness among the Texas universities of the Big 12.

You may also be aware that there have been calls today from public officials to hold hearings in the Texas Legislature that will permit public comment on changes in the composition of the Big 12 conference. Because of the powerful impact that realignment of the conference could have on the Texas economy, including the communities that host the universities of the Big 12, lawmakers are calling for a thoughtful and careful analysis of any proposed change to the Big 12. These elected officials believe changes to the conference as we know it would have profound economic implications for the citizens of Texas and potentially damage historic rivalries that are more than a century old.

Central Texas Congressman Chet Edwards released a letter today urging state government leaders to hold immediate hearings in the Texas Legislature on the future of the Big 12 and its impact on Texas.

Edwards commented: “It is important that all the citizens of Texas have a right to have their voices heard on the future of the Big 12 before, not after, all the decisions have been made. These decisions are too important to be decided solely by a small handful of people behind closed doors without public input from the citizens of our great state. The Texas Legislature has a responsibility to our taxpayers to review the impact of any conference realignment on our state’s economy and historic relationships between our state’s universities and their respective communities.”

You can read Congressman Edwards’ letter in its entirety at http://edwards.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1129:edwards-urges-dewhurst-straus-to-hold-immediate-hearings-on-future-of-big-12-a-impact-on-texas&catid=25:2010-press-releases&Itemid=47. (http://edwards.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1129:edwards-urges-dewhurst-straus-to-hold-immediate-hearings-on-future-of-big-12-a-impact-on-texas&catid=25:2010-press-releases&Itemid=47.)

Writing in the Austin American-Statesman today, State Rep. Jim Dunnam, who represents District 57 in the Texas House, also weighed in on a lack of public input with respect to any immediate changes in the composition of the Big 12.

In his guest column – “Decisions affecting the Big 12 should be made in public” – Rep. Dunnam wrote, “If it is truly best for our public universities to leave and be the Gulf of Mexico division of the Pacific Conference, so be it. But first let's get the rationale and all of the options out there on the table. Let Texans have a voice and understand the choices. The destiny of institutions we and our forefathers built deserves no less.”

Click below to read Rep. Dunnam’s essay in its entirety:

We have continued to call attention to the economic impact on our state of the four Texas universities of the Big 12, and the importance of these schools remaining together as a cohesive group. The significance of retaining the four Texas university collective of the Big 12 is reflected today in an economic impact study released by The Perryman Group. “The presence of four schools in a premier conference is important to Texas’ ability to capitalize on the potential economic stimulus of college athletics,” the report states. Read the full results of the Perryman study at: http://www.baylor.edu/content/services/document.php/113758.pdf. (http://www.baylor.edu/content/services/document.php/113758.pdf.)

We also appreciate our local chambers of commerce and mayors – who have spoken publicly about how the Big 12 is good for our area and our state – as well as all those in the Baylor family who are taking decisive action to make sure the best interests of Baylor, Central Texas and the great State of Texas are represented and preserved as this process continues.

I urge you to visit the Baylor Nation website for more information about the discussions related to the Big 12 and to learn what you can do to support our university, our conference and our state: http://www.baylor.edu/nation/. (http://www.baylor.edu/nation/.)

Does this mean the real rivalry, Texas/USC (It's a higher numerator fraction!), will be a yearly occurrence?

Not likely. The Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona schools and Colorado would be in an Eastern division (likely playing each other yearly) while the coastal schools would be in a Western division. I imagine they would only play 1-2 schools from the other division each year. There hasn't been a 16 team conference yet so exact scheduling is a little hard to predict. I'm extrapolating from the Big XII format.

Of course the divisions seem a bit unbalanced to me on the degree of the present Big XII. The West would be about the same difficulty as the Big XII north (considering we get a matchup against either Texas or Oklahoma each year in the present set-up). while the East would be at least as difficult as the Big XII south considering it will likely be the Big XII south plus others.

I just heard the news about Satoshi Kon.

I'm an older person (37) and had seen anime over the years and liked it pretty well. But when I watched Paranoia Agent for the first time, I was hooked. Getting to see Paprika in the theater was a treat and Satoshi's work opened my eyes to so much other good anime.

Miyazaki may be the master, but Satoshi was the first one who helped me really appreciate the art form that anime truly is. In fact, I always just assumed he was going to be the one to carry Miyazaki's torch on into the future ... sadly, this will not be.

Very sad news.

Yeah, Chabrol does come across that way.  The humor in some of his films range from traditional to twisted.  Huppert cracks me up in La Ceremonie.  Langlois is one of the great heroes in cinema.

Jackie Burroughs passed on today.  Probably best known as Hetty King in the Canadian Television series Road to Avonlea, Burroughs performed in over 75 films, and was a brilliant stage actress.  I'm heading to Prince Edward Island on Saturday for about a weeks holiday.  I'll be releasing some flowers into the ocean in her honor.  Though I never met her, she was someone I had hoped to work with someday.  She was a brilliant actress and I miss her already.

I read Satoshi Kon's farewell note today, after stumbling across it on my desktop. I saved it shortly after his passing, but didn't read it at the time (I think I knew that finding a nice quiet moment to read it would be best).

I don't think I could tell you the last time I openly wept as I did reading that note. Just trying to write about it is difficult. If you can find it, I strongly recommend reading it, provided you're prepared to be devastated. It's powerful in an astonishing way.

This is a sad loss.  Tarantino is my favorite director working today and like with any great director credit spreads out to the amazing crew.  Sally Menke was one of the most important parts of a great Tarantino film, giving them a unique tempo.  Much has been said about the lengthy scenes in Inglourious Basterds.  Long takes with minimal cutting, yet there's a sustained air of tension to each of these sequences.  Immediately, you sense something is wrong and with each edit comes the reveal of new information that can change your reaction to the scene.  Only Nino Baragli (Sergio Leone's editor) showed a similar mastery of craft.  Q.T.'s films will not be the same.  I wonder if he may start cutting them himself.

It's hard to imagine what a Tarantino film not cut by Sally Menke would look like. Her editing was, and is, so key to his style, that you have to wonder what a Tarantino film will be like without her.

Pulp Fiction is so lauded for its non-linear storyline, and that has everything to do with the editing. In that sense she was definitely one of the most influential editors in the history of film.

Those "Hi, Sally" videos are really moving now, especially the Death Proof one.

Sally Menke was an amazing editor.  Go watch Kill Bill again if you have any doubts.  One of the trickiest things she had to deal with was Tarantino's obsession with musical cues.  It's one thing to say you want a cue at a given moment, or a song playing over a specific scene, but to cut the entire scene so that it fits the music is really tricky.  With a score, you can edit it first, and then add score to fit the cut.  But trying to edit film to an existing piece of music limits your options.

Now consider the whole House of Blue Leaves sequence in volume 1.  It cuts together long takes, live music from the 5,6,7,8s, action scenes, more than a dozen characters, all the while using about 10 different pieces of music from bubble gum Jap-pop to classical, to the RZAs score, to Morricone's Spaghetti western themes, to everything else in between.  It's spectacular.

A very sad loss, and even sadder that this news will get bumped off the entertainment pages by whatever Lindsay Lohan is doing today.

Very funny guy, pretty young too. He has a solid presence in the documentary "Comedian". The documentary itself is mostly about Seinfeld's comeback, and a then up & comer Orny Adams trying to kick start his career. He's also in "I am Comic" which I haven't seen but yeah he'll be missed for sure.

I can't say I've seen any of his films but Casino Jack looked interesting and it was just shockingly sudden and at such a young age for an allegedly natural death. I imagine it is going to cast a bit of a somber mood over the Denver Film Festival that he was in town to participate in. Of course his cousin is also on the verge of becoming our next Governor so it dampens that as well I imagine.

Seriously, if they were willing to do a podcast for free, and just needed somebody to pay for the webhosting I would have zero problem doing so. But Matt and Alison are way too busy to be expected to do a podcast for free, right?
I'm assuming they'd be too busy or that they couldn't afford to take the time to do it for free, but you should send them a message with the offer just in case. The offer will, at the very least, let them know how much they'll be missed.

I don't quite know what to say about the IFC News Podcast. It's pretty sad news. It's because of Matt and Alison that I'm here - they had Adam on an episode ages ago, which turned me on to Filmspotting and the rest is history. I'm not really surprised, in an odd way. This isn't an environment for paid critics, and while Alison is brilliant, of course she's the first to go, when Matt, by comparison, has featured on At The Movies, and has a higher profile. The shame is that Alison is my preferred host. While I love them both, her opinion is always the one I put more stock in, and even when I disagree with her, I enjoy hearing her thoughts.

I hope the archive remains. It needs to. It's an impossible resource in terms of discussion. I've referenced their podcast in essays I've written for school. I will seriously miss it. I hope that they take as much time as they need to ensure that when they resume, if they resume, it's for the right reasons, and in the right situation. I would hate to see them rush back into it only to have things fall apart for good within a few months. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't happen that way, but...

For the curious, I intend to send a stupidly long, positive, fond email to them as soon as I can. I'm sure they know how much they are appreciated, and I'm sure everyone is gonna send well wishes, but damn right they should.

Not only that, but Big Fish is at #220, and these are the only Burton films on the list. I also approve of this. Excellent. Good work, IMDb. Oh wait, what's this? Close Encounters and E.T. still aren't on the list. Oh well, I was smiling for about a minute there.

"Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the Computer Division of Lucasfilm before it was acquired by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 1986. The Walt Disney Company bought Pixar in 2006 at a valuation of $7.4 billion; the transaction made Jobs the largest shareholder in Disney."

Damn. He was an amazing talent. His performance in Scenes from a Marriage is my favorite male perf in any Bergman film, but there was a lot of great work beyond that.
Tonight Hollywood will do its annual Roll Call of the Deceased, and I'm certain to mention him at the party. The academy will likely include him next year. Now I kind of hope Van Sydow wins Best Supporting Actor so that Josephson might get some mention tonight. People might pull up IMDB and look him up.
Title: Re: In Memoriam
Post by: Lobby on February 26, 2012, 10:16:34 AM
He was fantastic. He was one of those few multi-geniuses. Apart from being an excellent actor (in the theatre as well as on the screen), he was also a writer (books and plays) and director. I can't think of anyone as respected as he was. You know. Some people you want to be there for you forever and he was one of those. But he will be remembered for many, many years to come through his works.

That's too bad, although he was getting way up there in years.  To be honest, I'm more of a Gunnar Bjornstrand/Max Von Sydow guy but Josephson's performance in Scenes from a Marriage (my #1 film) is an absolute stunner.

Ralph McQuarrie. Conceptual designer and illustrator most known for his work on Star Wars. (http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=33315)

Quote from: George Lucas
"I am deeply saddened by the passing of such a visionary artist and such a humble man. Ralph McQuarrie was the first person I hired to help me envision Star Wars. His genial contribution, in the form of unequaled production paintings, propelled and inspired all of the cast and crew of the original Star Wars trilogy. When words could not convey my ideas, I could always point to one of Ralph's fabulous illustrations and say, 'Do it like this.'

"Beyond the movies, his artwork has inspired at least two generations of younger artists—all of whom learned through Ralph that movies are designed. Like me, they were thrilled by his keen eye and creative imagination, which always brought concepts to their most ideal plateau. In many ways, he was a generous father to a conceptual art revolution that was born of his artwork, and which seized the imaginations of thousands and propelled them into the film industry. In that way, we will all be benefiting from his oeuvre for generations to come. Beyond that, I will always remember him as a kind and patient, and wonderfully talented, friend and collaborator."

He made me become a science fiction fan. The best writer of science fiction short stories by far in my opinion. He didn't just have great ideas, which is essential for sci fi - he was also a good writer, which is rare.

If you haven't read anything of him I recommend The Martial Chronicles, a collection of short stories that loosely are knit together, covering the colonization of Mars from a number of different points of view. Excellent read.

When filmmakers I like tend to pass away I usually want to watch their movies. Julie and Julia was such a pleasant surprise when I saw it having tried to write it off as just some Meryl Streep biopic, but it ended up being a lot of fun and even with the glowing reviews and awards nominations, I still feel like its underrated. When Harry Met Sally is already a classic for many. I for one really like the films she wrote directed by Mike Nichols- Silkwood and Heartburn. Silkwood in particular which I saw for the first time a few years ago I remember being particularly powerful with great performances from Streep, Russell, and Cher and Heartburn (based on Ephron's marriage to Carl Bernstein) was great just to see Nicholson and Streep together.

Jiggs Scully
Pappy O'Daniel
& Moretti, the Attica cop

, all in one go. Saw Stick recently, a typical Durning freako performance.

More importantly,

He was in the first wave of troops to land on Omaha Beach on D-Day and his unit’s lone survivor of a machine-gun ambush. In Belgium he was stabbed in hand-to-hand combat with a German soldier, whom he bludgeoned to death with a rock. Fighting in the Battle of the Bulge, he and the rest of his company were captured and forced to march through a pine forest at Malmedy, the scene of an infamous massacre in which the Germans opened fire on almost 90 prisoners. Mr. Durning was among the few to escape.

By the war’s end he had been awarded a Silver Star for valor and three Purple Hearts, having suffered gunshot and shrapnel wounds as well. He spent months in hospitals and was treated for psychological trauma.


Wow

For some reason, I've watched a few of those old Quincy episodes a few weeks back.  It seems almost every episode he has some run in with his boss, Dr Austin and the cop Lt. Frank Monahan where they are telling him that this time he really has gone too far.  Yet they never seem to realize that he is always right.

Rest in peace. It's hard to overstate how much of an influence Ebert had on the way I watch movies, especially in my adolescence.
Title: Re: In Memoriam
Post by: Antares on April 04, 2013, 03:44:06 PM
I owe a lot of my love for films from watching Siskel & Ebert in their original show Sneak Previews, back in 1977. It used to come on twice every weekend on WGBH, at 1AM & 12:30 Pm on Sundays. I never missed a show in those early years because their adversarial approach to discussing the merits and weaknesses of films, was engrossing. Back then and all through their collaborative years, I found myself always in Ebert's camp when it came what kinds of films that I liked. I trusted him explicitly. But after Siskel died, I found that Ebert kind of became a bit too centric when it came to his views on a lot of films. It was if he was either resting on his laurels or he didn't want to appear too curmudgeonly, or maybe trying to look a bit hip. Either way, it was obvious that without Siskel, the magic wasn't there any more. But I thank him and Gene for providing me with endless hours of stimulating conversations expounding the virtues of great films and great film making. If it weren't for them, I would have never discovered Akira Kurosawa, Samuel Goldwyn, Buster Keaton or Ealing comedies. It's truly an end to an era, which we will sadly, never see again.

RIP Roger

Devastating. When Ebert wrote only two days ago about his new health challenges I was greatly saddened, but he sounded so lively and optimistic I couldn't possibly have imagined this to happen so soon. He has been such a ubiquitous presence in the film world during the entirety of my life that I couldn't imagine it without Ebert's voice in the mix, and facing that reality now really has struck me hard.

I will definitely be trying extra hard to make it to Ebertfest this year now, as I can't imagine a better place to go in order to celebrate his life and legacy.

I was researching Siskel & Ebert earlier this week, trying to figure out which installment of Michael Apted's "Up" series it was that I remembered them raving about back when I was first watching their show. I went to see 56 Up on Tuesday (the first one of those Up movies that I actually went to see) largely propelled by the dim memory of their enthusiastic review of an earlier edition. (FWIW, It probably would've been 28 Up in 1984 or '85.)

Ebert was a machine. So prolific. I have a couple of his movie-review-compilation books, which I used to reference constantly (before the Internet...).

Also to see the outpour on Twitter from fellow critics and filmmakers whose films he championed (as diverse from Spike Lee to Kevin Smith), it's a beautiful thing.

Two thumbs up, Mr. Ebert. What a loss, but with loss comes celebration and rememberance. He'll always be "America's film critic" to me.

There was also a nice tribute to Ebert on the latest PTI episode. I often refer to his reviews on the Sun Times website, I had done so earlier in the day before his passing had been announced. I had Sky+ The Golden Compass, but was in two minds to watch it or not, so I checked out his review, he really liked the film - Unfortunately I didn't like the film as much as he did, but I respected his opinion enough to watch the film.

I remember watching Siskel & Ebert in the mid-nineties, and loving the passion with which they discussed films. I credit this early experience as the starting point for my love of the art, and I was a loyal fan of the show up through the guest hosts and into the Roeper years. And while I often found myself agreeing more with Roeper than Ebert during those years, I maintained a healthy admiration and deep respect for Roger as a class act and the best among film writers. Despite his more bizarre turns (his take away from The Lovely Bones and his rants about video games particularly stick out), he remained a wonderful writer and a passionate man, and a lover of film. His essay/review on the Tree of Life may be more warm and insightful than the film itself.

He is a treasure, and I will miss him greatly.

My Facebook post today:

Three people were foundational in my fandom and critical thinking of movies: my late father (a film noir afficianado), Pauline Kael and Roger Ebert. Roger's work lives on through Jim Emerson's Scanners web site and his spirit in forums like the Filmspotting weekly podcast of which I'm a devotee. In his final years, he was a mentor not just about enjoying movies but about living a full and rewarding life. Rest in peace.

When Ricky came out of the bar Vincent was standing close to the Eldorado's rear deck, right hand inside his raincoat, his left arm covering it, folded across his chest.
Ricky came along the sidewalk, wary, "The f... you doing?"
Vincent wondered if he was any good face to face, no gun. He wouldn't be packing today, risk doing two years.
"Get away from the car."
"Somebody smashed your window," Vincent said.
"Where?" He came in a hurry now. Vincent nodded toward the driver's side and Ricky moved past him, intent. Vincent followed, walked up next to him.
"What're you talking about? The window's okay."
Vincent looked at it, his expression curious. He brought the chunk of masonry out of his raincoat to slam it in the same motion against the tinted glass and the window shattered in fragments. He turned to Ricky and said, "No, it's broken. See?"

Alan Turing died a long time ago. He committed suicide a couple of years after being chemically castrated. His crime isn't illegal anymore.

He received a royal pardon today.

Turing defined the software/ hardware concept of computing. Before him any problem was addressed by constructing a machine to solve that problem solely.

His may be the single most important contribution to the defence of this country during WW2.

Since this is a movie talk thread , he invented the thought experiment that became the Void Comp (Voight-Kampff) test in Blade Runner.

I know.  I am surprised at my initial reaction when I saw the news-- I gasped in horror.  I don't react that way to "celebrity" deaths.  But PSH always seemed more real to me, and his characters are all of a type-- a depressive, struggling person.   I know, he's an actor, a really good one, but so good that I felt I knew him.

This one hurts. It hurts a lot.

He was the best. Plain and simple.
Honestly I don't normally get emotional about famous actors dying. But this is different. There was something about his acting that made him feel... true and honest, I guess. It felt as if you somehow knew him.
I'm genuinely sad.

I know.  I am surprised at my initial reaction when I saw the news-- I gasped in horror.  I don't react that way to "celebrity" deaths.  But PSH always seemed more real to me, and his characters are all of a type-- a depressive, struggling person.   I know, he's an actor, a really good one, but so good that I felt I knew him.

Gutted for PSH :( Did not realize he was struggling so much with drug and alcohol addiction...

I spent the afternoon yesterday rewatching some clips of his performances, sort of a greatest hits compilation of whatever they had on YouTube. It was bittersweet, as there is so much richness there even amidst the tragedy lingering behind knowing that that's all there will be, forever. It was particularly hard to watch the clip of his Oscar speech, seeing Heath Ledger nominated with him and everyone sharing that space so...joyfully. It's like experiencing a film or story with the tragic ending foreshadowed, and that uncomfortable complicity in knowing how it will end before the characters do.

The world is weird.

Innocence smile
Crayola skies for a thousand miles
It's a good life in the happily ever after
Last page of a very last chapter
It's the story of a charmed life

It's a charmed life
Unexplainable grace
Stumble, you fall right into place
It's a childlike world and you can feel the magic
Far from the typically tragic
That's the beauty of a charmed life

Me and my partner were watching TV last night. A show came on that wasn't particularly good. But Robin Williams was in it and really funny.

But I was also surprised that alot of his characters jokes were aimed at himself. His character was an ex-drug addict/alcoholic. Which I believe William's struggled with that in his life.

He was also generous to New Zealand. He preformed in Christchurch and donated all the money to help rebuilding the city after the earth quake.

Robbin Williams a massive part of my life as a kid. He starred in all my favourite movies back then.

Hook
Aladdin
Mrs. Doubtfire
Jumaji
Jack
Flubber
Bicentennial Man

I am very sad by this news.

His standup comedy contemporaries always talked about how his energy was incredible and how he was such a genuinely nice person off the stage as well.

A huge part of my youth and then young adulthood were those movies. I used to want to have a friend like the genie when I was a kid and as I grew older I got to see him in different types of roles that I could appreciate as I grew up. I used to think everyone could use a Sean Maguire in their life. I can't even string some poignant thought together. The world lost an artist. I don't mean to presume anything about his depression, but I wish he could've seen himself as I and so many others saw and will continue to see him as.  :'( :'( :'(

I've made no secrets about my feelings about Robin Williams.  But even though his style of comedy wasn't my cup of tea, I do recognize that what he did, he did very, very well.  And this is a very sad end, for anyone. 

"Mork and Mindy" was a big favorite in my youth, as was Popeye.  There was a time when I was very fond of The World According to Garp, and I really liked his "non-Robin Williams performance" in One Hour Photo.

I listen to a lot of comedians on podcasts, and no one ever had a bad word to say about him.  He sounded like a hell of a nice guy, despite his struggles with substance abuse.

Heard them say it on the radio last night and almost ran off the road.

Such a terrible loss for the world.  Such a generous, brilliant, wonderful man.

My favorite films featuring Robin Williams:

One Hour Photo
Good Will Hunting
The World According to Garp
The Fisher King
Awakenings

Twenty years ago Mrs. Doubtfire would have been on that list.  That's no longer the case, although  several of the scenes are a testament to his comic versatility. 

I think One Hour Photo best channels into his darker, sadder side.  An amazing performance.

I rented Insomnia the day before he died, coincidentally.  Haven't brought myself to watch it.  Might have to hold off, get it again some other time.

Her character in Pret a porter is called Slim. Nice.

I have another reason to watch Birth now. I would like to see "Confidential Agent", I don't hold out great hopes, having read the story. However, it rounds out her first five films. The other four in order of preference;

1. Key Largo
2. Dark Passage
3. To Have and Have Not
4. The Big Sleep (not a fan)

Dark Passage is an emotionally complex piece that seems to leave some behind. It should be of interest because the story is the basis for The Fugitive. The author spent years trying to get legal recognition that his story had been used. Watch Dark Passage and decide for yourself if he was ripped off.

Wore my BB King shirt today to work in remembrance. So sad.
Why is it sad when someone had such a long and full life. The idea of death frightening instead of inevitable? So it's what you do in the meanwhile. A short or empty unfulfilled life is the sad thing to me.

This needs more pondering than a reaction allows. Empathetically, one feels the pain of family and friends; the same way the passing of a family member hits so hard. But it's a smaller emotion than the feeling of celebration that should be generated by the memory of a great musician, actor, writer. So no, "sad"; general sadness isn't what I feel. I know death has a personal resonance as in, it's a reminder that I am going to die one day. However; having pondered the subject quite a bit my main concern is for the pain it's going to cause those around me. I've already done enough in my life to feel I have no complaints and the rest of life is going to be a bonus. Hence the amount of time I spend reflecting on this forum. If I still had primary goals in life I'd be out there concentrating on them. My primary goal now is maximising my beach time. I've already earnt it. Having that attitude makes me braver about my future choices coz I have very little to fear whatever happens. It's all gravy to me.

I'm sure a legend like King has much more reason to have felt that way than little ole me. What I wish for him or anybody else is that they feel like I do about life in general.

As for BB. The apt appreciation of the man would be playing his music wouldn't it? Loud.

Sir Nicholas Winton died at 106. 106!

When he was 88 his wife discovered that he had masterminded the escape of over 600 Czech children, mostly Jewish; just as the Nazis took over the country. He had kept his past to himself for 50 years.

One of the children was Karel Reisz, who directed one of the quintessential British films; Saturday Night, Sunday Morning; part of the defining "Angry Young Man" movement. He went on to make The French Lieutenant's Woman. He came to England speaking no English.

Just took a peak through Craven's filmography and totally forgot he was behind the Scream franchise. Granted, the last 2 weren't anything interesting. But Scream 2 totally has a right to exist. And the first one is a fantastic movie having a lot of fun with horror tropes (a lot of which created by Craven himself).

How sad that two artists (Rickman and Bowie) both died at the age of 69 from cancer, same as Lemmy died a few weeks ago too at the age of 70. What a horrible disease that so many families have to struggle with.  :'(

As someone watching a family member go through it right now, I can tell you cancer is the friggin worst.

Rickman was amazing. Kevin Smith has told some stories working with him on the set of Dogma, and they were wonderful.

And Hans Gruber's fall is one of the best villain deaths. Of all time. I can picture his face perfectly if I close my eyes.

I’m not even gonna say rest in peace because it’s bigger than death. I never met the man (I was too nervous the one time I saw him) and I never saw him play live, regrettably. I only know the legends I’ve heard from folks and what I’ve heard and seen from his deep catalog of propellant, fearless, virtuosic work. My assessment is that he learned early on how little value to assign to someone else’s opinion of you…An infectious sentiment that seemed soaked into his clothes, his hair, his walk, his guitar, and his primal scream. He wrote my favorite song of all time, ‘When You Were Mine’. It’s a simple song with a simple melody that makes you wish you thought of it first, even though you never would have – a flirtatious brand of genius that feels approachable. He was a straight black man who played his first televised set in bikini bottoms and knee high heeled boots, epic. He made me feel more comfortable with how I identify sexually simply by his display of freedom from and irreverence for obviously archaic ideas like gender conformity etc. He moved me to be more daring and intuitive with my own work by his demonstration – his denial of the prevailing model…His fight for his intellectual property – ‘SLAVE’ written across the forehead, name changed to a symbol… An all out rebellion against exploitation. A vanguard and genius by every metric I know of who affected many in a way that will outrun oblivion for a long while. I’m proud to be a Prince fan(stan) for life.

Most of Germany remembers him as Schimanski (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horst_Schimanski), Tatort's most well-known police inspector. Tatort is a crime show that has been on the air since 1970.
But to be honest, that was before my time so I mostly knew him for his 90s work: the Helmut Dietl satires like Schtonk! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105328/combined) and Rossini (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120037/combined) I am less fond of but Der Totmacher (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114704/combined) I remember as really chilling. I'm quite interested in revisting Abwärts (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086846/combined) now and maybe checking out Die Katze (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093336/combined) too.
The Hollywood Reporter has published a lengthy obituary (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/gotz-george-dead-german-actor-906500) the other day. I knew his dad was an actor too but I had no idea he was in Metropolis and, well, less glamorous productions.

Not many seem to care about sport. By "care about sport", I mean feel that sport is an essential part of their selves; that it defines them personally because how you act physically in sport has a pronounced effect on who you are, or could be, psychologically. You learn things about yourself.

The tragedy of an air crash needs no other level; it's horrific enough. For this Brazilian football team on this journey to be decimated is gutting. What the sport means to a nation and what this team were achieving for their fans; how it echoes tragedies of the past also; is deeply affecting.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Comedian and actor Ricky Harris, who had a recurring role in Chris Rock's Everybody Hates Chris sitcom and voiced several characters that appeared in hip-hop albums, died Monday. He was 54.

A cause was not immediately available but Harris' manager, Cindy Ambers, said the comedian suffered a heart attack two years ago, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The son of a preacher, Harris grew up in Long Beach along with childhood friend and rapper Snoop Dogg. The two sang in their church choir.

Harris' first movie role was in the 1993 drama Poetic Justice, starring Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur. He was also known for voicing characters that appear in hip-hop albums, including several by Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg posted a video on Instagram about the death of Harris saying the actor was "my big brother, my homeboy" and a "Long Beach original."

Fellow performers posted condolences on social media.

"Devastated!!! #RIP to the One and Only #RickyHarris," tweeted Cedric the Entertainer.

Harris is survived by his mother, his ex-wife and two daughters.

William Christopher's performance as Father Mulcahy was a great depiction of a loving, flawed Priest in a mainstream show. You got the sense that everyone respected him because of his beliefs even if they didn't adhere to them. He tried to practice his beliefs. And when he failed, it wasn't a moment to mock or deride him, but to show that he was as human as all the characters in the show.

William Peter Blatty wrote the book Twinkle Twinkle Killer Kane, which I've read.

He turned that book into a very ambitious screenplay he was unable to get the money for. I read that too. Quite different from the book. Much more cinematic.

He then scaled the script back into what became The Ninth Configuration. I've watched two different cuts, a shorter version I owned on VHS and the longer one released on DVD. It's one of my Top 100 movies of All Time, containing some of the most quotable dialogue in cinema history.

Blatty then wrote the paperback adaptation of The Ninth Configuration, which I have also read.

I've followed the project as it's evolved over the many years and I admire Blatty for the continuing passion he had for every different version.

Quote
Ferrer joined the cast of CBS’ popular spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles in 2012, opposite Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt and others. He came in early on as the assistant director of NCIS and at first was a hard-as-nails unpleasant sort to the team. But during the course of the ensuing seasons, his Owen Granger warmed up to them and became a friend. There has been an ongoing mole-hunt storyline in the current eighth season of NCIS: LA, and Granger was stabbed while in police custody in the most recent episode that aired Sunday.
How does that paragraph get into an obituary? Everything after that first sentence is completely irrelevant to Ferrer as a person or actor, and even worse it's written in a way that conflates the actor and the character.

Robert Hardy (http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-40818839), most will not recognize the name, but he was one of my favorite British actors. If you do know him, and it's only from the Harry Potter films, then you owe it to yourself to search out anything he was a leading actor in. Winston Churchill: The Wilderness Years, Edward the King, or Elizabeth R. He'll always be Winston Churchill, Prince Albert & Robert Dudley (Earl of Leicester) to me.
