10 Good Guy Actors Who Pulled Off Evil Villains

Article: 10 Good Guy Actors Who Pulled Off Evil Villains

With films like Pay It Forward and Secondhand Lions under his belt, Haley Joel Osment has a knack for playing characters with good intentions. That’s why his wicked turn in IFC’s The Spoils of Babylon is so fascinating to watch. In preparation for the epic miniseries event—premiering Thursday, Jan. 9 at 10/9c — here are…

Peter Jackson heads back to Hobbitown in new production diary video

Article: Peter Jackson heads back to Hobbitown in new production diary video

All you little boys and girls must have behaved very well in 2011, because Peter Jackson put together a very special gift for you for Christmas. In addition to the release of “The Hobbit” trailer, he has put together the fifth installment of his video production diary for our viewing pleasure. This behind-the-scenes segment focuses…

Watch Elijah Wood fight Dominic Monaghan at Fantastic Debates 2011

Article: Watch Elijah Wood fight Dominic Monaghan at Fantastic Debates 2011

I’ve had some pretty heated arguments over movies at film festivals, but that’s nothing compared to Fantastic Fest‘s Fantastic Debates, where filmmakers, critics, and fans aren’t just encouraged to argue, they’re encouraged to fight. Now, if you’ve never been to a film festival, spent time around filmmakers and critics, let me explain something. These people…

The Beastie Boys Revisit “Fight For Your Right”

Article: The Beastie Boys Revisit “Fight For Your Right”

The Beastie Boys have released a trailer for their big comeback music video called “Fight For Your Right – Revisited.” While normally a trailer for a video is unforgivable, we will let this one slide, because if ever a video needed a preview, it’s this one. The trailer for “Make Some Noise” off the Beastie…

Video: The Rza, Elijah Wood, and Nacho Vigalondo at Fantastic Fest Karaoke

Article: Video: The Rza, Elijah Wood, and Nacho Vigalondo at Fantastic Fest Karaoke

What happens when The RZA, Elijah Wood, “Timecrimes” director Nacho Vigalondo, and The Alamo Drafthouse’s Tim League and Henri Mazza decide to sing the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” at “Chaos Reigns” Karaoke? Magic. Pure, awesome, slightly unsettling magic. Immediately following the song, Bill Pullman and about thirty other people joined this crew onstage…

Álex de la Iglesia Puzzles Over “The Oxford Murders”

Article: Álex de la Iglesia Puzzles Over “The Oxford Murders”

This interview originally ran in June 2009. Álex de la Iglesia always has to be the odd man out. At the American Cinematheque’s Recent Spanish Cinema series last year, de la Iglesia’s thriller “The Oxford Murders” was the lone English-language film shown, serving as a linguistic break from Goya winners like Jose Luis Cuerda’s “The…

Six Murderous Movie Minors

Article: Six Murderous Movie Minors

When “Kick-Ass” premieres this evening as the opening night feature of this year’s SXSW Film Festival, it’ll be under the scrutiny of comic book fans who’ve been lusting after the film since director Matthew Vaughn showed clips at Comic-Con. But paying almost as much attention will be moviegoers who might take issue with the character…

Devendra Banhart

Article: Devendra Banhart

I have mostly ignored Devendra Banhart, somewhat regrettably. I think it started with some phishhead wearing filthy Teva’s talking about him in ’02 and I just made a shallow association that stuck. The super strange name and Banhart’s excessive beardy look didn’t help dispel these notions and it was not until about 2 years ago…

End Times with Shane Acker

Article: End Times with Shane Acker

Get your numbers straight, folks: There’s the upcoming adaptation of the Broadway musical “Nine,” and this past summer’s sci-fi sensation “District 9″ — which had CGI-based characters, but not as many as those in Shane Acker’s fully animated post-apocalyptic epic “9″ (which comes out today, on 9/9/09, of course). Based on his Student Academy Award-winning…

Destroying the World to Save It

Article: Destroying the World to Save It

Is it too late for “9″ to be the action movie of the summer? Shane Acker’s dystopian fable shares a subject with the latest entries in the “Terminator” and “Transformers” franchises (not to mention “Battlestar Galactica”), but his direction is a model of clarity and grace, and his animated, inhuman protagonists are more life-like and…

Álex de la Iglesia Puzzles Over “The Oxford Murders”

Article: Álex de la Iglesia Puzzles Over “The Oxford Murders”

Álex de la Iglesia always has to be the odd man out. At the American Cinematheque’s Recent Spanish Cinema series the other week, de la Iglesia’s thriller “The Oxford Murders” was the lone English-language film shown, serving as a linguistic break from Goya winners like Jose Luis Cuerda’s “The Blind Sunflowers” and Agustín Díaz Yanes’…

De la Iglesia goes to Oxford.

Article: De la Iglesia goes to Oxford.

“The Oxford Murders” seemed an uncharacteristically buttoned-down choice of project for fearless Spanish cult film director Álex de la Iglesia, he of the lurid and hilarious “The Day of the Beast” and the dedicatedly nasty “Ferpect Crime.” Shot in English in the U.K., the new film features Elijah Wood and John Hurt as a grad…

Article: “The Ice Storm,” “Mélo”

By Michael Atkinson On its surface, Ang Lee’s career has been distinguished by a seemingly aimless ricochet between nations and milieus (Taiwan, New York, Wyoming, Devon, Shanghai, Connecticut, etc.), and between adapted disparate source materials (Jane Austen, Rick Moody, Annie Proulx, Wang Du Lu, Stan Lee) — and from both perspectives, you can find something…
