Harriet The Spy: Release Date, Cast And More

"Harriet the Spy" made waves as the first theatrical movie produced by Nickelodeon. But the film adaptation took a lot of liberties with the original 1964 novel by Louise Fitzhugh. However, it looks like a new animated series adaptation from Apple TV+ is being a little more loyal to the source material, giving off the vibe of an animated production from the 1990s, with a mix of Wes Anderson and the graphic novels on which "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" was based. Find out everything we know about...

Review: The French Dispatch

— by RON WILKINSON — Wes Anderson fans relish the games he plays with reality. The characters steadfastly do their own thing, despite conflicts with others and half the time this results in snarky, lighthearted humor. As in several of Anderson’s earlier movies, Bill Murray (here playing publisher Arthur Howitzer Jr.) plays quarterback, even as […]

5 Frances McDormand Movies To Stream After The French Dispatch

Wes Anderson's newest movie, "The French Dispatch," hits theaters this week. /Film's own Hoai-Tran Bui wrote of the movie in her review: "'The French Dispatch' is so breathlessly stylized that one might accuse it of being airless and emotionally inert (and indeed, many have). But that's not the case at all." The story of an American magazine in a fictional French city boasts a dynamite ensemble cast featuring Anderson staples like Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, and W...

The French Dispatch Review: Wes Anderson's Stylish Love Letter Never Buries The Lead

When you start a job in at a newspaper, you start at the bottom. As an intern at the Washington Post, that meant I was dropped right into Obituaries, where a sour-faced editor who obviously would rather be writing at the New York Times carved a bloody streak of red pen across every story I filed. It was a strange feeling, to start working at one of the biggest national newspapers to have its fingers on the pulse of America, and to be writing about dead people. When I asked my editor why that was...

The French Dispatch Featurette Introduces The All-Star Ensemble Of Wes Anderson's Latest Film

Wes Anderson's "The French Dispatch" is nearly upon us, bringing another all-star ensemble into the filmmaker's quirky world of eccentric characters and symmetric cinematography. Though Wes Anderson is one of the more well-known filmmakers working today, his style still keeps him in the niche category, which is probably why Searchlight Pictures is touting the immense ensemble cast to entice moviegoers into a trip to the theaters this fall. A new featurette highlights so many of the stars involve...

Avengers Director Joe Russo Thinks Indie Movies Don't Have A Future In Theaters

Will independent films ever hold the same theatrical draw that they did before the pandemic? Joe Russo doesn't seem to think so. Russo co-directed "Avengers: Endgame," the second highest-grossing movie of all time, along with three other MCU blockbusters in the 2010s. In terms of sheer box office dominance, if nothing else, some have argued that he and his brother Anthony Russo were the filmmakers who defined the decade, for better or for worse. However, his last movie, "Cherry," was a bit more ...

14 Movies Like Knives Out That You'll Want To Watch ASAP

"Knives Out" does a lot of things right. The film, directed by Rian Johnson and starring some of Hollywood's best (a trend that's continuing in its upcoming sequel), may feel unique in its blend of comedy, murder, and sly social commentary. But the comedy mystery is actually one of Hollywood's oldest genres, one that's rarely shy about slipping in a biting statement here and there. A comedy mystery can be sleek or slapstick, dumb or wise, or all of those things at once.Mystery comedies first pea...

Charlie Kaufman Once Pitched A Gilligan's Island Reboot Filled With Murder And Cannibalism

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip..."Gilligan's Island" is a classic American sitcom that followed the adventures of seven castaways on a tiny island, stranded after their ship, The Minnow, runs aground. The series aired for three seasons on CBS from 1964 to 1967, receiving solid ratings.

Notable Upcoming Movie Art Books 2021/22

I compiled this list of notable upcoming movie art books initially for my own benefit to keep track of titles that interest me and/or which I would most likely purchase, but figured it might be of interest to my readers as well. I’ll be getting most, if not all of these titles for reviews at some point but it would take a while for me to write all of them, and I suspect some of my readers might just be interested in some of these titles to want to order them blind. 1) The Art and Soul of Dun...

Guillermo Del Toro's Nightmare Alley Loses Composer Alexandre Desplat

As Guillermo del Toro pushes to cut together his latest feature film in time for its December release, a new setback comes in the form of an exit. Two-time Oscar-winner Alexandre Desplat was all set to write the music for del Toro's noir thriller "Nightmare Alley," but the French composer had to back out of production due to scheduling conflicts. He is an early favorite to grab an Oscar nomination for his work on Wes Anderson's latest feature, "The French Dispatch," but the one-two punch of an A...

James Gunn Says Bill Murray Is A Huge Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed Fan

Yes, Gunn wrote the screenplays for both 2002's live-action "Scooby-Doo" and the 2004 sequel "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed." While the second movie may not have been nearly as big a hit as its predecessor, it did earn one true-blue fan: Bill Murray.

"In considering the setting for his movie, [Wes] Anderson wanted something like Paris, but a version that doesn’t exist anymore outside of cinema..."

"... like the one of wonder captured by 'The Red Balloon,' and one of whimsy captured by Jacques Tati. One of the film’s producers, Jeremy Dawson, said that Anderson was looking for a place 'with nooks and crannies, corridors, passages, staircases, layers and ramparts.' The filmmakers began their scouting search on Google, digitally navigating the streets of towns that might fit the bill. Then they hit the road to visit a few of them. While in Angoulême, they came across a plaza with a small caf...

The 14 Best Film Acting Debuts Of All Time

As with most creative pursuits, there's a lot to be said for good, old-fashioned experience. It takes time to get comfortable in front of the camera on a film set, even if you worked on stage or television before. So it makes sense that, most of the time, actors tend to start in small, unobtrusive roles and work their way up to leading man or leading lady status. That said, there is something very special about fresh-faced actors walking right onto set -- maybe with some theater experience or a ...
