Bryan Forbes Nicole Kidman Richard Attenborough

Bryan Forbes, one of the most creative forces in the movie world for years, has died aged 86. The director, actor and writer was considered one of Hollywood's finest in the 1960s and he helmed the original version of The Stepford Wives (1974) before turning to a life of writing books, both fiction and memoirs.

As The Guardian point it, the turning point in Forbes career came when he formed the independent company Beaver Films with the great Richard Attenborough in 1958. Forbes received an Oscar nomination and a BAFTA award for the company's first project, The Angry Silence (1960). Attenborough played a factory worker persecuted for not joining a strike. 

Forbes went on to write The League of Gentleman (1960) and directed Whistle Down The Wind (1961) about children who mistake an escape convict for Jesus. For 'The Stepford Wives,' Forbes directed a screenplay by William Goldman about Joanna Eberhart, a woman who moves to the quaint town Stepford, Connecticut with her family before discovering that a sinister truth that lies behind the perfect behavior of the female residents. The movie was remade in 2004 by Frank Oz, starring Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick and Bette Midler.

Legendary Director Richard Attenborough Moved To Care Home

Richard Attenborough

89-year-old director Richard Attenborough has been moved into a care home after house-care become impractical. He has actually been living in the house for elderly people from the theatrical profession for the last 15 months with his wife, actress Sheila Sim.

His 86-year-old brother, Sir David Attenborough, said it "simply wasn't practical" for them to keep the house. Lord Attenborough spent several days in a coma after a stroke in 2008 causing him and his wife to sell their Richmond upon Thames house for a reported £11.5m. Attenborough joked at the time: "I scared the living daylights out of Sheila, had some time in hospital. They were all fussing around." His young brother and fellow national treasure described the accident in an interview in 2011. "He fell downstairs and damaged his brain, so was unconscious for a long time. He's now back, but he's in a wheelchair, said David. "You can have a conversation with him. I go down and see him at the weekend. We have our jokes, the ones we've had since we were kids."

Jurassic Park 3D Trailer

When John Hammond of genetic engineering company InGen manages to clone dinosaurs from prehistoric DNA on an island-turned-theme park, it didn't bode well for visitors. After his investors force him to enlist the help of two palaeontologists and a chaiotician to make sure that the park is safe enough to open to the public, things go badly wrong when a double-crossing InGen computer programmer attempts to steal dinosaur embryos for a rival company by deactivating the security system and releasing the dangerous creatures from their enclosures. The adventure becomes less of an exciting opportunity for exclusive access to new technology, and more of a deadly struggle to survive.

What's better than gigantic deadly dinos on cinema screen? Try gigantic deadly dinos in 3D! The triple Oscar winning 'Jurassic Park' is set to hit our screens again 20 years after it was first released. It was directed by Steven Spielberg ('Saving Private Ryan', 'Schindler's List', 'Jaws', 'E.T.') in 1993 after he adapted it from best-selling novelist Michael Crichton's book of the same name, with a screenplay co-written by Crichton and David Koepp ('Mission: Impossible', 'War of the Worlds', 'Angels & Demons'). It will arrive in 3D soon in the US on April 5th 2013.

Starring: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Samuel L. Jackson, BD Wong, Wayne Knight, Gerald R. Molen, Miguel Sandoval, Cameron Thor, Christopher John Fields,

A Matter Of Life And Death Review

When a modern viewer considers the work of Michael Powell -- whose perverse Peeping Tom is a cult classic -- a tender love story that defies death -- yes, a little like Ghost -- is not something that typically comes to mind.

Yes, sure, Powell (and frequent collaborator Emeric Pressburger) made family fare like The Red Shoes, but A Matter of Life and Death (often known by its alternate title, Stairway to Heaven) is something entirely else. To wit: The story involves a British airman named Peter (David Niven), who is on the verge of crashing his plane during his World War II mission, and spends his last moments before bailing out speaking over the radio to American wireless operator June (Kim Hunter), with whom he makes a special connection. Peter jumps before crashing, but is surprised to find himself washing up ashore, fully intact. And wouldn't you know it, he soon encounters June, and the two are immediately in love.

Chaplin Review

Movies about movie stars are always a dodgy affair. They reek of in-jokes, chumminess, and a glossy version of Hollywood that has never really existed.

As actors go, Charlie Chaplin is at least a worthy candidate for a biopic. His impact on the acting profession and especially physical comedy is hard to overstate, and the man remains an icon whose face (or silhouette) embodies cinema. In the hands of Richard Attenborough, Chaplin's life is digested into the highlights -- from vaudevillian youth to his arrival in Hollywood to his amazingly fast rise to fame. Attenborough even dabbles in Chaplin's investigation by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. Naturally, the running series of Chaplin's famous romantic entanglements are carefully tallied, the actresses playing the various Mrs. Chaplins (and near misses) making up a who's who of early-'90s starlets.

Gandhi Review

In a society rife with Robin Williams waterworks and Ben Affleck angst, it's nice to have an occasional jolt of truth. Gandhi, while a couple of decades old now, still has that bold-faced honesty which we find so often lacking in many contemporary films.

Gandhi stars Ben Kingsley in a retelling of the life and times of revered Indian leader Mohandas Gandhi, renowned peace lover, sage, and all around worldly wise man. There is little told here that cannot be read in any history book, for Gandhi is not some sort of Hollywood trumped up, Pearl Harbored dramatization of history. Rather, it's just the facts, nothing but truth.
