‘Jungle Cruise’ Cinematographer Recalls the Time He Was Kidnapped While Making a Movie [Interview]

Cinematographer Flavio Martínez Labiano got to shoot his biggest picture to date with Jungle Cruise. The Disney film is based on a theme park ride, but for cinematographer Flavio Martínez Labiano, it’s more influenced by old Hollywood classics. He wanted to shoot a movie with a sense of romance, bright colors, and natural beauty. As he told us, creating that natural beauty in a water tank in Atlanta wasn’t easy. The production was another collaboration between Labiano and director Jaume Collet-...

‘The Lord of the Rings’ Almost Killed Off One of The Hobbits

If The Lord of the Rings wasn’t emotional enough already, now we get word that New Line was angling to murder one of our precious hobbitses. While promoting their new podcast, The Friendship Onion, with an interview for IGN, LOTR stars Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan described a request put forth by New Line during the making of the epic trilogy, which breaks down to “someone’s gotta go.” And by someone, they were looking specifically at the shorter folks of the Fellowship.

Mark Millar’s ‘King of Spies’ is About a James Bond-esque Spy Coping With His Own Mortality

Though Jupiter’s Legacy has been canceled, Netflix is still in the Mark Millar business. Instead of adapting an existing Millar comic to the screen, however, the company has worked up a new project in-house with the creator. King of Spies is billed as a “graphic novel translation of [an] original Netflix property.” The title will pair Millar with an as-yet-unnamed superstar comic book artist for an all-new story, which centers on Britain’s greatest secret agent. James Bond? No. Sir Roland King....

Favorite Films of 1978

After almost two years, we finally come to that hallowed tradition of a top 10 list for my favorite films of 1978. For the uninitiated, the 1978 Project is a deep dive into the cinema of the year of my birth. This sort of annual appraisal is normally reserved for current releases, but I’ve found the process of exploring the past quite enjoyable as well. I’ve been doing the current release thing for a while now though, so if you’d like to take a spin through the last fifteen years, feel free: [20...

The Least Interesting Generation

Before Steve McQueen’s 18th birthday, he had worked on a farm, joined a circus, sold pens at a traveling carnival, hitchhiked and rode the rails across the country, worked as a lumberjack in Canada, labored on a chain gang in the Deep South (punishment for the crime of vagrancy), served a short (and illegal — he was underage) stint in the Merchant Marines, and joined the Marine Corps for a three-year enlistment. After getting out of the service, the newly-minted veteran moved to New York City,...

20 Years of ‘Shrek’ and Its Curious, Controversial Scottish Legacy

It’s hard to overstate the impact that Shrek made when it premiered 20 years ago. The snarky comedy that ruthlessly mocked fairy-tale tropes and took blatant stabs at Disney helped to redefine the modern American animated movie and put DreamWorks on the map as the most legitimate competition to the House of Mouse. The franchise, which has grossed more money than the Toy Story and Hunger Games series, casts a heavy shadow over the medium. You can easily make the case that Shrek’s influence can...

CS Soapbox: Who is Starro and What’s He Doing in The Suicide Squad?

CS Soapbox: Who is Starro and what is he doing in The Suicide Squad? Holy smokes! By now most have seen the trailer for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and will likely have a few questions: first, what’s with the d*ck jokes? Second, why is Idris Elba so damn cool in everything he does? Third, and perhaps most importantly, what the hell is that giant starfish-kaiju thing? We have no answers for the first two questions, except to say Gunn has a particular style of humor that happily borderlines...

Looking at the similarities between Alien and Outland

Rebecca Breeds is the latest actress to embody Clarice Starling, the courageous FBI agent who faced off with two serial killers in one watershed 1991 thriller. One killer shall have to remain nameless. Clarice’s cousins, however, are numerous and known by plenty of other names. When Jodie Foster originated the role three decades ago, she inspired a whole generation of scr...

The Russia House

I don’t have any especially fond memories of this movie, but figured it would still be good to revisit, and hey, it’s a John Le Carré thriller starring Sean Connery. It’s definitely a slow burn, but I did enjoy it for the most part, except for the kinda creepy romance twist between Connery and Pfeiffer (in terms of age difference). Not very exciting as a film, but it suits the story.
