Special Effects Pioneer Dick Smith Dies Aged 92


Robert De Niro

The Oscar-winning make-up artist Dick Smith has died aged 92. In a career spanning over fifty years, Smith was responsible for some of the most iconic transformations in cinema, especially his work on The Exorcist and Amadeus. The news was confirmed by long time friend and former assistant Rick Baker, who won an Academy Award for his work on the make-up for An American Werewolf in London

Rick BakerRick Baker worked as Smith's assistant on The Exorcist

Originally Smith had been studying at Yale University to become a dentist when he became transfixed with the idea of make-up artistry after reading a book from his university library. This twist of fate led Smith to become one of the most intentive masters of his craft, long before the possibilities of CGI. He terrified audiences with the makeover he gave young actress Linda Blair for The Exorcist, complete with bulging eyes and 360-degree head swivelling.

Grudge Match Review


Good

It's a little annoying that this high-concept marketing project (Rocky vs Raging Bull!) is as entertaining as it is: we want to hate it, as tired actors are sending up their own faded images. But while the script never even tries to be something interesting, it at least gives the stars some engaging scenes to work with. And we can't help but cheer for them in the end.

The film stars with a bit of history (and digital trickery), as young bucks Henry "Razor" Sharp and Billy "The Kid" McDonnen (Stallone and De Niro) battle it out back in 1982. Local fans in Pittsburgh are divided between them and are hugely disappointed when, at the peak of their fame, Razor suddenly retires before a climactic rematch. Now some 30 years later, a young promoter (Hart) decides to finally get them back together in the ring. But this stirs up an old feud involving Kid's affair with Razor's wife Sally (Basinger), which resulted in a son BJ (Bernthal), who's now a father himself. Can these two men possibly work together to promote their epic grudge match?

Silly question. Of course they start off gruffly snarling at each other but eventually find the expected mutual respect. And that's about the extent of the acting required of these two iconic stars. Add some fast-talking comedy from Hart, veteran battiness from Arkin, steely femininity from Basinger and soulfulness from Bernthal and the film at least has a veneer of complexity. But aside from wondering whether the filmmakers will fudge the final match so no one loses (they don't), there isn't much to worry about.

Robert De Niro Sr. Painted On The Big Screen At Sundance 2014


Robert De Niro Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival 2014 will attract countless creative directors hoping for a chance to screen their hard-work to a welcoming audience. One of which is Robert De Niro, who, with the help of HBO, has made a documentary about his own father aptly named Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro Sr., detailing his abstract-expressionistic art-work from the post WW-II era.

Robert De NiroRobert De Niro Will Screen A Tribute To His Father

Robert De Niro is one of the Godfather's of the movie world. As an actor, director and producer, he's shone a light on gangster, and recently comedic roles for decades. Raging Bulls, Mean Streets, The Godfather II, and Goodfellas are just a handful of films that harnessed definitive characters from years. Now, the seventy year old has turned the camera to a more personal icon in his life; his father.

Robert De Niro Honors Late Father With HBO Documentary Screening At 2014 Sundance Film Festival


Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro, as an actor, has created some of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history, but he isn't the only artist from his New York based family.

The 70 year-old is bringing the story of his late father Robert De Niro Sr., an abstract expressionist painter, whose work was part of the post WWII art scene, to the small screen.

De Niro's father, who died in 1993 from prostate cancer (71), was successful in the 1940s and 50s but as time passed, so did the style, and as the pop-art of the 60s rolled in, De Niro Sr., began to struggle.

Sylvester Stallone And Robert De Niro - Grudge Match Video Interview


Video Interview with Sylvester Stallone And Robert De Niro

Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro talk about their new boxing movie 'Grudge Match' in an interview. They discuss the relationship between their characters and the process of training for the movie's big fight.

'The characters we play are people that were just born to be natural enemies', says Sylvester. 'They're antagonistic because they're envious of each other's talents.' On the training regime, Robert admits they didn't do a lot of training together. 'I started working with Sylvester's guy, Bob Sale, he's great... He came to New York and we would train as much as we could and [Stallone] would give the choreography to him and so we worked on it for a few months', he explains. 'We didn't really work together 'til we got [to New Orleans].'

Last Vegas Review


Very Good

An almost ridiculously strong cast and a witty script by the writer of Crazy Stupid Love make this silly film a lot more entertaining than it should be. As it playfully explores long friendships and the struggles of ageing, it turns into a four-sided bromance. So even if the film feels a little under-powered, it's still thoroughly charming.

At the centre are four lifelong buddies who are determined not to grow old. Paddy (De Niro) is trying to recover from grief over his wife's death, while Archie (Freeman) is tired of being fussed over by his son (Ealy) and Sam (Kline) hates living in a retirement community with his spirited wife (Gleason). So they jump on the chance to travel to Vegas for a stag weekend for their pal Billy (Douglas), who is marrying a woman (Blair) in her 30s. And getting together sparks their youthful sense of mischief as they plan a lavish party. Especially when two of them begin to fall for lounge singer Diana (Steenburgen).

Having five Oscar winners in the lead roles gives considerable oomph to the whole project, as these seasoned veterans bring out engaging details of their characters. Douglas has the safest role as a hapless lover-boy, while De Niro does the emotional heavy lifting and Kline endures the cheapest jokes (because his wife has given him a "free pass" for the weekend). Meanwhile, Freeman is clearly having the most fun: cool and relaxed with a naughty glint in his eye. And Steenburgen provides some badly needed female feistiness.

Charlie Sheen exploits his bad-boy image in this fractured comedy in which he plays a paranoid idiot who thinks his ex is trying to kill him. But the story is wafer-thin, and the film is almost overpoweringly indulgent.

American Hustle Review


Essential

David O. Russell deploys his deranged genius to explore the real events behind Abscam, cleverly focussing on the inter-relationships rather than the details of the elaborate sting operation. So under the wild 1970s hair and costumes, we have a series of characters who are never very likeable but are still hugely engaging. Which makes this one of the most prickly, exhilarating movies of the year.

As the opening caption says, "Some of this actually happened". It's set in 1978 New York, where lowlife conman Irving (Bale) is making a decent living with his girlfriend Sydney (Adams). Although his wife Rosalyn (Lawrence) knows something is up. Things get even more complicated when Irving and Sydney are cornered by FBI agent Richie (Cooper) and forced to co-operate in a complex scam to entrap mobsters and dirty politicians, including the likeable Mayor Polito (Renner), with whom Irving strikes up a friendship. As things develop, the sting continually threatens to spin crazily out of control. And Irving starts to worry that Sydney is getting far too close to Richie.

Intriguingly, even as the story gets more and more insane, Russell keeps the story grounded in the characters and the way they interact with each other. So their shifting relationships, power struggles and internal jealousies take centre stage, blurring the details of the undercover operation into the background. This may annoy viewers who want clear insight into Abscam, but it makes the movie much more involving. And it gives the actors a lot to work with. Each of them delivers a powerhouse performance that blends the character's distinct physicality with a complex inner life.

American Hustle - Clips


Irving Rosenfeld is a conman whose impressively deft criminal exploits have eluded authorities for years. However, when he finds himself forced to use his talents for good as he is roped into an FBI sting operation led by the unhinged agent Richie DiMasom, he finds his life of partying, drinking and squandering money under massive threat. He must use his fraudulent cunning to reveal the seriously corrupt crusades of Carmine Polito, the Mayor of Camden, New Jersey, whose power cast spreads much further than his constituency. Irving is helped by the seductive but dangerous Sydney Prosser who soon becomes less of a business partner and more of a mistress. As their relationship deepens, however, they arouse the suspicions of Irving's gregarious but unbalanced wife Rosalyn who threatens their whole operation with her lethal jealousy and deadly rage.

'American Hustle' is a high-stakes gangster thriller directed and co-written by the Oscar nominated David O. Russell ('Silver Linings Playbook', 'I Heart Huckabees', 'Three Kings') alongside writer Eric Singer ('The International'). Featuring a talented award-winning cast (some of whom O'Russell has previously worked with with much success), the flick is set to hit the big screen on December 18th 2013 in the US.

The Family Review


Weak

Despite a promising trailer and a great cast, this French-American comedy-thriller is a complete misfire because Luc Besson seems unclear about how to create a black comedy. He merely mixes silliness and violence, but the script is so lazy that it's neither funny nor suspenseful. With the talent on screen we keep hoping everything will come together at some point, but it never does.

It's set in Normandy, where the Manzoni family has just moved after another disastrous attempt at witness relocation. They snitched on the mob back in America, and are having a tough time blending with locals anywhere. Even here, Fred (De Niro) gets a little too frustrated with a plumber while Maggie (Pfeiffer) doesn't take insults lying down, and their kids Belle and Warren (Agron and D'Leo) quickly take over the system at their new school. Their handler Stansfield (Jones) is doing his best, but it can't belong before what they are up to gets them noticed back home.

For a French movie, this is oddly packed with negative French stereotypes, from the ugly casting to the locals' backwards technology (only the Americans have mobile phones). And everyone speaks English with a silly accent. But then the script is packed with head-scratching inconsistencies and far-fetched touches. We never believe a single element of the plot, which leaves these solid actors looking lost on screen. De Niro, Pfeiffer and Jones have at least played these characters before, so know how to punch the comedy notes.

David O'Russell Teaming Up With Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Cooper Once Again For Gritty "American Hustle"


Jennifer Lawrence Christian Bale Bradley Cooper Robert De Niro

So by now we should all agree that Jennifer Lawrence can play any character, right? She’s equally believable as the teenage leader of a rebellion, as a mentally unstable 20-something widow and now, as a bored New Jersey housewife in the newly released clip from David O’Russell’s American Hustle.

Jennifer Lawrence, Catching Fire Premiere
So Lawrence can play anything, right?

The clip shows 23-year-old Lawrence star opposite Christian Bale, who apparently plays a low-rent con man. The film is set in the 70s and is something of a Silver Linings Playbook reunion. Besides featuring Lawrence and being directed by Silver Linings’ O’Russell, American Hustle’s cast also includes Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, according to MTV News. Rounding out the cast is Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, with supporting performances from Louis C.K., Michael Pena and Jack Huston.

'Thor: The Dark World' Dominates The Weekend Box Office With Impressive Opening Gross


Chris Hemsworth Tom Hiddleston Johnny Knoxville Michael Douglas Robert De Niro Harrison Ford

Thor: The Dark World almost became the top grossing November release of all time this weekend when it managed to bring in an estimated $86 million in the domestic market since its Friday (Nov 8) release in the USA. It narrowly missed out on beating the record set by Skyfall in 2012, but its numbers are nonetheless a fantastic result for studio bosses at Marvel and Disney.

Thor 2
Chris Hemsworth is back as the God of Thunder

Benefiting from the global blockbuster that was Marvel's The Avengers, much like Iron Man 3 did earlier this year, the estimated weekend takings of Thor 2 prove that there is still a great deal of life left in the superhero genre and despite lukewarm reviews, the film still has a keen and dedicated audience. The domestic performance from Thor 2 mirrors the similar successes enjoyed by the film in the international market, where it has already grossed $240.9 million. Thor was released a week earlier in a number of key international markets, including the United Kingdom and Australia, and has continued to perform well overseas.
