Danny Elfman on Tim Burton, The Simpsons and his return to singing live
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
He scores Tim Burton's films, wrote The Simpsons theme tune, and met his wife Bridget Fonda on set. But Danny Elfman still yearns for the mosh pit While Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are widely considered to be joined at the hairdo – an emo-hipster version of Scorsese and De Niro – it's composer Danny Elfman who has been the director's most loyal and enduring collaborator. Think of any of Burton's deranged goth-com fantasies, from Beetlejuice and Batman to Sleepy Hollow and Frankenweenie, and it will be Elfman's barbed and bouncy compositions that spring to mind as readily as man-child misfit heroes or morbid, arachnophile art design. Elfman, now 60, was the frontman of performance art outfit turned rock band Oingo Boingo when Burton asked him to score his 1985 debut film, the comic road movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure. Only twice since then has Elfman surrendered the baton on a Tim Burton film – most recently on Sweeney Todd, which was wall-to-wall Sondheim, and back in 1994 when the pa ...

BEHOLD MY POWER: Jackie Brown Is Now at the Laurelhurst
The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Okay, FINE, this likely isn't my doing. But I'm taking credit for it anyway. Remember when the Laurelhurst booked Out of Sight, and I said somebody should do an Elmore Leonard film fest? And then the next week, the Laurelhurst went and got Get Shorty? And I got greedy and was all hey, great, cool, now let's make Jackie Brown happen? So check this out: Starting tonight and going through Thursday, the Laurelhurst's got Jackie Brown, which is one of those very, very few films that somehow manages to get better every time you watch it and Tarantino's best movie. C'mon. Look at Robert Forster and Pam Grier here: That clip reminds me: Even if you don't like, say, fantastic characters, or Elmore Leonard plots, or Samuel L. Jackson or Michael Keaton or Robert De Niro or Bridget Fonda or Chris Tucker or Tarantino, Jackie Brown's worth seeing just for its soundtrack: And, of course: I generally watch Jackie Brown about once a year. The chance to see it on the big screen this time ...

'Tarantino XX': Exclusive Clip From Blu-ray Special Features
MTV News - over 4 years
With the "Tarantino XX" Blu-ray collection hitting store shelves today, now seems like as good a time as any to take a look back at one of the most influential filmmakers of our generation. MTV News has an exclusive look at one of the bonus features on this exciting boxed set, which shows Pam Grier talking about the moment she first learned Quentin Tarantino wanted her to play the title character in "Jackie Brown." "They delivered this manuscript in a manila envelope and it says 'QT' in the corner and there's all these little stamps all over it, and I'm going, 'Okay, I'll open it,' and there it is: 'Jackie Brown,'" she remembers in the clip, which comes from "The World's Greatest Showman" special feature. "So I read it, and there's a note and it says, 'Please read it and call me when you read it.' And I'm reading it, and I'm going, 'Oh my god, it's remarkable, it's extraordinary.'" Grier said she assumed that she would play the role of Samuel L. Jackson's "drugged-out pimp ...

Emma Stone & Cameron Crowe Team For New Film; Is It Long-Lost Crowe Project 'Deep Tiki'?
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
As Ione Skye, Bridget Fonda, Renee Zellweger, Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Penelope Cruz, Kirsten Dunst and Scarlett Johansson know, a young Hollywood ingenue hasn't really arrived until she's starred in a Cameron Crowe movie. Which is why you can officially add Emma Stone to the club. According to Deadline.com, the "Amazing Spider-Man" actress is negotiating to star in an "untitled love story" that Crowe wrote and will direct for Sony. (THR.com also confirmed the news and noted that Scott Rudin will produce.) Little other details are offered by Deadline.com's Mike Fleming, but Variety reporter Jeff Sneider tweeted soon after the news that the film could be a rewrite of one of Crowe's long-lost projects.

The 6 Best-Looking Stoners In Film, For Those Observing 4/20
Screen Junkies - almost 5 years
Let me begin by wishing all those who observe a solemn, dignified 4/20. This is the highest of high holy days for stoners, so may your observance be filled with Bob Marley, DVR’d episodes of Tosh.0, and perhaps a backyard wrestling tape or two. Hollywood has given us no shortage of stoners over the past 40 years or so, with the most iconic ones having been inventoried and recited ad nauseum. But what of the most attractive stoners? What of them? The Venn diagram of attractive stoners is a strange beast, as it seems that many men can fall into the overlapping segments, but only a handful of women. Stupid sexist Hollywood. When will the entertainment industry give attractive women the recognition and notoriety they deserve?. This has gone on for far too long. Milla Jovavich – Dazed and Confused She didn’t speak much, but she didn’t really have to. Her character, Michelle Burroughs (had to look that one up), added to the film by just being there, and of course, by mindlessly sta ...

These Lottery Movies Are The Closest You’ll Ever Get To A MegaMillions Jackpot
Screen Junkies - almost 5 years
Lottery-mania is sweeping the nation today, as the MegaMillions jackpot is now up to approximately $650 million, and could be even higher by day’s end. People don’t just love the lottery, but people love stories about winning the lottery because of all the inherent drama in such a windfall. Some person or family is going to find that their life will change overnight, and not necessarily for the better, as many of these movies will attest. All of these conceits lend themselves to compelling cinema, so it’s no wonder lottery winners are WAY overrepresented in film. As are superheroes, zombies, and Katherine Heigl. Here are a handful of lottery films that show you how shitty people can be. Lottery Ticket This urban delight features Bow Wow (he ain’t so lil’ anymore!), Ice Cube, and probably Mike Epps and Cedric the Entertainer as a Friday-type film in which Bow Wow’s character, Kevin, finds he’s holding a $375 million-winning lottery ticket and tries to hold on to it over Fourth o ...
