It’s ‘Chinatown,’ Jake, and the inside story of a classic Hollywood movie

Sam Wasson plunges deep into the tortured soul of the film “ Chinatown” in his new book, “ The Big Goodbye: Chinatown and the Last Years of Hollywood.”   Wasson, who was born in Los Angeles in 1981, says the film was “of urgent personal interest — why do I love this city and why does the world have such a complicated relationship with it.” He argues that the Los Angeles of the film, which stars Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and John Huston, is director Roman Polanski’s ...

Yes, that casino you saw in that movie or Netflix comedy is in Southern California

Some of Southern California’s casinos have reached iconic status with their giant hotel towers, expansive gaming floors and Vegas-style decor, so it’s no wonder they’re attracting guests and big name acts yearly but they’re also drawing another group — studios ready to shoot a movie or an episode of their next big TV show. Several large casinos in Southern California have served as stand-ins for major gambling locales such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City because of their proximity to Los Angeles-b...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

Director Christian Sesma had long wanted to work on a gritty and high stakes heist movie inspired by some classics, but he didn’t want it filmed just anywhere — he wanted it filmed in the place where he was born, raised and still lives now: the Coachella Valley. Naturally, that was the location for his next project, which just wrapped up filming. “Pay Dirt” stars actors Val Kilmer, Luke Goss and Nick Vallelonga. The film is produced by Sesma and “Green Book” actor Mike Hatton. Sign up for our C...

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...

Oscars 2020: Here’s what the Academy voters got right

I’ll never say anything bad about the Oscars again. Well, at least not until next awards season. Wait, OK, there’s this: It’s taken the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 92 friggin’ tries to finally recognize that Hollywood isn’t the only place in the world that makes a Best Picture. Choosing Bong Joon Ho’s uncategorizably original class war parable “Parasite” as the first non-English winner in the top category was some kind of going the extra mile, however.

Oscars: Does a film’s genre affect its chances of winning?

With the 92nd Academy Awards on Feb. 9, 2020, we look at how popular film genres have changed over generations. What’s a genre? The word is French and means type or category. There is no scientific method of assigning a film to genres, which began as a way filmmakers could easily cast and market their movies. Genre refers to recurring, repeating and recognizable patterns including subject matter, characters or settings. In the silent film era, many movies began to fall into categories such as We...

Actress Rosie Perez says she was told of Weinstein rape

By TOM HAYS, MICHAEL R. SISAK and JENNIFER PELTZ | Associated Press NEW YORK — “Do the Right Thing” actress Rosie Perez testified Friday that fellow screen star Annabella Sciorra told her in the mid-1990s that Harvey Weinstein had raped her but that she couldn’t go to the police because “he’d destroy me.” Taking the stand at the former Hollywood mogul’s rape trial, Perez said her friend Sciorra had told at some point in 1993, her voice shaking on the phone, that something had happened to her: “I...

Nearly 98, this man shook President Truman’s hand, befriended Dr. Seuss and Stan Lee and hasn’t stopped dancing

Joe Siracusa is alive and well on the eve of his 98th birthday. That’s important to note, Siracusa says. Because when you get to be his age, and you’ve had fame enough to show up on celebrity birthday lists — as drummer in bandleader Spike Jones’ City Slickers, followed by a long career in Hollywood animation studios — he says people tend to worry when his name doesn’t appear in the newspaper on his Feb. 3 birthday. “One year it wasn’t there,” he says, sitting in his favorite chair at the Tarzan...

How Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson and Tommy Chong made the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired ‘Color Out Of Space’

Joely Richardson wasn’t sure just what she’d experienced the first time she read the screenplay for “Color Out Of Space.” “I was incredibly sick — I think I had a fever — and I got the script and I read it,” says Richardson, who stars as Theresa opposite Nicolas Cage as husband Nathan. “And I was like, Seriously? I didn’t know what was my flu and what was (the story). Is it meant to be scary or funny? “So, I was really of two minds,” she says. An entirely understandable place to be. “Color Out ...

Richard Gere meets Jesus in ‘Three Christs’ and talks playing real-life doctor who inspired the story

In “Three Christs,” actor Richard Gere plays a real-life psychologist who embarked on an unorthodox course of treatment with three paranoid schizophrenic patients who each believed he was the son of God. The film from director Jon Avnet, who also produced and co-wrote its screenplay, touches on issues of science and medicine, faith and delusions, but Gere says to him it’s really about something else altogether. “It’s belief in storytelling,” the actor says on a joint call with Avnet recently. “Y...

50 moments from 1970 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

This was 1970, the dawn of the Seventies, and with it the world welcomed Joni Mitchell’s “Ladies of the Canyon,” Disney’s “The Aristocats” and “Broom-Hilda,” a comic strip that blew the lid off the secret life of a centuries-old husband-hunting cigar-smoking witch. Also, the American Motor Corporation introduced its weird little subcompact the Gremlin on April 1, a joke that practically writes itself. There were goodbyes, too, in 1970.

Oscars deal ‘Joker’ 11 nominations, but lack of women directors and acting diversity is a joke

It only took them two decades to catch up with the defining film trend of the 21st century, but Oscar voters finally gave their most nominations love to a comic book movie Monday. Admittedly “Joker,” which was listed in a pack-leading 11 categories for the 92nd Academy Awards, is not typical superhero fare. In fact, it’s more a study of a collapsing mind and society than anything 80 years of stories about Batman’s arch-villain would suggest. There isn’t a cape in sight. Which is probably why man...

Laemmle Theatres may have left Beverly Hills, but Lumiere and others moved right in

The unthinkable happened. It only lasted about a week. In late November 2019, Southern California arthouse chain Laemmle abruptly announced that it was pulling out of the Music Hall theater, where it had been showing movies for more than 40 years. Combined with Laemmle ceasing operations at the Fine Arts theater a mile or so east on Wilshire Blvd. earlier in the month, it looked for a brief moment like Beverly Hills – a community as tightly associated with the film business as Hollywood for a ce...
