The Greatest Movies From The 70s
The 1970s. The era of disco, bell bottom jeans, and phenomenal moviemaking. Hollywood’s golden age surged in the seventies, a time where gifted filmmakers carved their niche in the studio system and created films unlike anything seen before. From maverick moviemakers who created their penultimate masterpieces to the birth of the modern Hollywood blockbuster amongst a sea of commercial duds, the seventies were one of the hottest times in filmmaking even in the wake of the Cold War. Without further ado, here are the best movies of the 1970’s.

'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4 Episode 10: Family Treachery

November 11th, 2013 8:20am EST
Boardwalk Empire
Family treachery - the disloyalty of family members to the boss - has been a staple in crime drama movies, presented to greatest effect in The Godfather (I and II) and Casino.   Episode 4.10 looks like it's bringing Boardwalk Empire into that territory.

Eli is caught in the perfect storm, or the agonizing space between a rock and a hard place.   He wants to save his son.  He'll do just about anything towards that end.  But the last thing he wants to do is betray Nucky, especially after Nucky took him  back - somewhat unbelievably - the last time.  It was a little hard to believe that Nucky...

George Michael Cancels Charity Concert With Alicia Keys

George Michael
George Michael has axed a planned charity performance with Alicia Keys on Wednesday after he was struck down with a tooth infection.

The former Wham! frontman told fans on Twitter earlier this week his face had swollen up like "a hairy football" as a result of the mystery condition, comparing himself to Marlon Brando in The Godfather.

He had hoped to recover in time to take the stage alongside Keys at her Keep A Child Alive Black Ball event in London, which raises money for victims of HIV and Aids in Africa, but he went online again on Wednesday to reveal he was still unable to perform....

'Scream 4': Another Movie, Another Dollar

Scream 4
With the release of "Scream 4" on Friday, April 15, Wes Craven will finally have an answer to the question: Can the "Scream" movie franchise be resurrected as easily as the ghost faced killer? It’s been over a decade since the last installment of the "Scream" series was released and now the old gang, at least what’s left of it, is back at it again. Given most of the original cast has been killed off and the remaining ones have aged disgracefully into “Cougar Town” and Betty Ford during the significant time lapse since the last film’s release, Craven has decided to the inject some ne...

Al Pacino
Hollywood legend Al Pacino has been handed a bill for $188,000 by officials at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Bill Murray Enjoyed 'Messing' With Robert Duvall On Movie Set

July 24th, 2010 9:00pm EDT
Bill Murray
Robert Duvall had the cast and crew on new movie Get Low cowering in fear whenever they were around him - because The Godfather icon was an intimidating "time bomb", according to co-star Bill Murray.

The actor admits he was struck by Duvall's presence on the film set - but he refused to walk on egg shells around the star like the rest of the crew and tried to engage him in some playful banter.

He explains, "(There was) tension around the set. This guy is a time bomb and the ticking is audible. And so I just remember being on the set and the first day - this guy's very serious... people a...

The Movie Rut: 'Jaws' (1975) - 35 Summers And Counting

Jaws celebrates its 35th anniversary
“I'm only trying to say that Amity is a summer town. We need summer dollars.” - Mayor Vaughn

In reading about the productions of some of the most successful movies ever made, a noticeable trend arises pretty quickly. Nobody believes in the project, the shoot becomes mired with complications, some studio executive shouts “What is this shit?!” during the first screening, the director verges on a nervous breakdown, and then, out of nowhere, the premiere has a line wrapped around the block and everyone drowns in money.

If the story sounds familiar, that’s because it more or less describes the...

Will 'Public Enemies' With Christian Bale And Johnny Depp Make The Top Gangster Movie List?

June 30th, 2009 10:10am EDT
Public Enemies
It's hard to draft this kind of list with "Public Enemies" so close to reaching its port of call at your local theater, since it's bound to shake the list up a bit. But so far as it goes, the Mob genre has a few golden standards that have set the bar high enough to make any director quake in their concrete boots at the prospect of taking the plunge. These films have a built-in mechanism that causes them either to take complete control of the empire or erupt like a car bomb. It's the requirement for these movies to champion the 'bad guy' as the hero of the film, casting them in a sympathetic...

Rob Schneider has never been one to back away from controversy and as we discussed his new film Big Stan -- released on DVD this week -- this became all the more apparent as this interview went along. Rob is very candid about what he thinks of a fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus and expresses his love for Roger Ebert, a man he once engaged in a very public dispute.

Mike: So, how was the transition to directing?

Rob: Not a big transition because I always felt I had a hand in directing all my movies. So, I really knew what I wanted and it took so many months to finally get the m...

There are some movies that live forever in the minds of humanity generation after generation. They span decades, continents, and cross racial and gender divides.

Violence Propels Filmmakers, Moviegoers & The Academy Awards

January 11th, 2008 12:07pm EST
No Country For Old Men
The lights go down. A low, rumbling bass slightly shakes the seats as the occupants draw in a tight, anticipatory breath. The first thing to break the tension is a thin beam of light across the center of the screen. It is accompanied by a low, rat-at-tat rhythm that could be rain on a tin roof- if it weren't for the high-pitched shriek in the background.

Is that yelling? Shouting? The shriek morphs into a scream of mechanical menace. It's a bomb, and it's followed by an explosion linked to the picture exploding into life. The audience sees all-out war. Guts are flying, blood is strea...
