Foster talks media pressures facing Stewart, problem is everywhere

Jodie Foster has been speaking out in defence of Kristen Stewart and the media attention she's been getting, oh and of course the media attention that Robert Pattinson has been getting too I'm sure. Not just them though, of all young actors and the pressures of the media that they...

Are films to blame for violent acts?

Following the shooting in Aurora Colorado the media leapt on the fact that the film that was playing at the time was The Dark Knight Rises (Filmstalker review) and the insinuations were flying, the killer was copying and influenced by The Dark Knight Rises, a film he hadn't yet seen....

Filmstalker's Films for June 2012

The month was set to start well with Prometheus, it didn't work out so well though did it? Oh the reviews are polarised but the story was poor. Anyway, more of that later and in the review where I do let lose. The rest of the month is good though...

Filmstalker's Films for May 2012

May, and where's the weather? The day I'm formatting this article for posting its pouring down outside, perfect weather for being inside a cinema watching a film to take you away to somewhere exotic, even if it is just in your head. There's certainly a lot to see this month,...

Filmstalker's Films for 2012

Now here's a list, and frankly I’m glad it’s finished, this has taken time and plenty of reading, but it’s been worth it. This is the Filmstalker preview for 2012, the films worth going to see from January through to December, well the ones we know about anyway. This isn’t...

Filmstalker's Films for January 2012

Well here we are in 2012, barely days into it but we're here none the less and so far the fact that the Mayans didn't bother to write an extra couple of pages onto their calendar hasn't yet resulted in the end of the world. Phew. That does mean however...

Filmstalker's Films of 2011

2011 is almost over and it's been a good year for films although I didn't get to see, or write up, all the films I wanted to as my life has been busy this year and meant I've had the least amount of time I've ever had to look after...

Filmstalker Reader's Top Tens of 2011: Call for submissions

How fast has this year gone? Really fast is the answer. I can't believe we're here already, festive time is around the corner and the end of 2011 won't be far behind, then it's another year of fun, laughter and tears, some of which will be had in the cinema....

Filmstalker's Films for December 2011

Wow, it's the end of the year already, well it's the start of the final month, and that means awards season is just around the corner and the next two months are going to be pretty poor on television and in the cinema. Wait though, what's that you say Filmstalker?...

Filmstalker's Films for November 2011

Have you seen the date? We're fast approaching the festive period already, where did the year go? Well we're not quite at that speech yet, there's another two months of cinema ahead, and this month is surprisingly diverse with film. There's plenty of adult drama for us, and I don't...

Cinemas thwart Studio plans to modernise Hollywood

It's clear to many outside the industry of music and film that they need to move on with technology and the consumer. Rather than fighting, prosecuting, circling the wagons and protecting their old marketplace and revenue model, they should be finding ways to exploit the new marketplace. So it's surprising...

Filmstalker's Films for October 2011

This month promises a bumper of films to talk about. I've not just selected the UK releases that I'd recommend, but there are a few in here that have caught my eye and made me wonder if I might go and see them, and a couple I'd just avoid like...

Is the death knoll sounding for 3D?

A story caught my eye a few months back that made me think about which way 3D was heading, news that a major game publisher had decided not to bother with 3D anymore, and then just the other day the news came out about Sony removing the funding for 3D...

Filmstalker's Films for September 2011

There's a real mix of films this month, even in my selections as I range from British thrillers to American comedies, yes I am actually suggesting a couple might be worth looking at this month, and from the intellectually challenging to the sheer straight entertainment. You do have to remember...

Star Wars on Blu-ray, Lucas edits again

Word has been coming out of late that since George Lucas has decided to release Star Wars on Blu-ray that he has been tinkering with things again, adding more CG, changing scenes, altering dialogue and all sorts. It would seem he's never happy with Star Wars as it is. However...

Has Hollywood's greed hurt 3D?

I feel like slapping my forehead and saying "Doh!", but it does seem obvious that Hollywood's desire to milk every last drop of profit out of a latest trend or genre for as little cost as possible has resulted in the latest trend or genre pushing audiences away and a...

Filmstalker's Films for July 2011

July is, surprisingly a quiet month. You'd think that it would be filling up with bigger films but the releases are pretty thin on the ground, however that doesn't mean it's a bad month because as the films thin out so the quality ones rise to the top. There's quality...

Filmstalker's Films for June 2011

Some good films this month and there's a nice selection to be had too, it's not just your usual Hollywood stuff. Mind you it opens with a big Hollywood film and ends with one too, but at the same time neither are what you might expect from their titles, one...

Is 3D faltering?

Richard Greenfield of the Wall Street company BTIG has been an open sceptic of 3D in the film industry, and now he's spoken out and said that it is now beginning to hurt the industry, and he has some figures to back up his claim. The most important figure is...

Big names demand no more on demand

A group of twenty three producers and directors have signed an open letter to the major studios to stop a new video on demand service that allows films to be streamed into the home just sixty days after their release in the cinema. Reading the open letter I became more...

Closing Credits: Sidney Lumet

12 Angry Men. It's almost all that this Closing Credits article needs to say for Sidney Lumet, and yet there's so much more. Sidney Lumet has died aged 86. The writer, producer but most importantly the director, a director who delivered one of the best thrillers of all time, a...

Dune is dead, has it had its chance?

The latest film version of Frank Herbert's Dune has died a death as Paramount have had their four year rights holding lapse before they could actually bring it to the big screen. Richard P. Rubinstein is the current rights holder for the Herbert novels and he announced that the rights...

At the Mountains of Madness dead? Studio, MPAA or cinema to blame?

Studios want all their films to hit the thirteen year old and upwards demographic. Apparently that's where the most money is, where the most cinemagoers are, and that's why they want everything to be PG-13 in America. R rated films just don't work. Not helped by the fact that many...
