Will the movies ever catch up to H.R. Giger?

“I was only pleased with Alien,” said H.R. Giger. “The other things I was not very happy with.” Giger was 69 at the time, talking to Vice, throwing aside his entire career in movies. He had other careers. He was a painter, a sculptor, a man who built bars whose interiors resembled spinal cord wormholes into embryonic hellscapes. He did album covers, back when album covers were real things you could hold in your hand. He dabbled in videogames — and by “dabbled,” I mean “worked on a CD-ROM game that played on DOS, Amiga, and the Sega Saturn,” which are words barely anyone understood, even in 1992. He produced work steadily for decades.

Still, one imagines that Giger would not have been surprised by the fact that — after his death in Switzerland on Monday — the most common description of him was “the man who made the alien from Alien.” Not because the creature is the best thing Giger ever created. Far from it. It was just the one time that his utterly unique vision made it to the big screen. READ FULL STORY

Television Without Pity: A personal EWlogy -- ESSAY

I’ll never look at a bucket of ribs the same way again.

I’ve been a steadfast reader of Television Without Pity since I lit upon Tracie “Potes” Potochnik’s America’s Next Top Model recaps back in 2004. In snarky TWoP style, Potes regularly engaged in a gentle mockery of host-mogul-mentor Tyra Banks about everything from her Kool-Aid weave to her love of barbecue-slathered pork. From the first lines of those recaps, it felt like I’d found the website equivalent of my very soul (and what a trash-TV-filled, highbrow-educated soul it is). And so, like Tyra Banks and those ribs, I devoured the damn things week after week. As with all of the site’s recaps, they were well worth the wait.

Philip Seymour Hoffman remembered in video tribute -- VIDEO

Boogie-Nights-Philip-Seymour-Hoffman_612x380.jpg

A little over a month ago, we lost Philip Seymour Hoffman. Eulogies have included essays, written remembrances of his best work, and — because it is 2014 — tweets. But the latest honoring of the late actor is perhaps the most telling of Hoffman’s impact on the world: Filmmaker Caleb Slain put together a 20-minute supercut of Hoffman’s best roles, including clips from The Master, Doubt, Boogie Nights, and Almost Famous, that shows his amazing range as an actor.

On the Vimeo page for the video, Slain writes that “200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman’s roles.” What resulted is a touching tribute that reminds us of Hoffman’s talents and how much the film world — including audiences — will be missing now that he’s gone.

Watch the tribute below: READ FULL STORY

Cory Monteith missing from on-air Oscars 'In Memoriam' tribute

The 2014 Oscars “In Memoriam” tribute honored all of those we lost this year in the world of film, followed by Bette Midler performing “Wind Beneath My Wings.” However, as viewers might have recognized, there was one name missing from the list: Cory Monteith.

Cory Monteith, who died in July, was best known for his television work as Finn Hudson on Fox’s Glee, but he wasn’t a stranger to the big screen either. Monteith starred in 2011’s Monte Carlo, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, and more.

However, Monteith did make the Oscars In Memoriam gallery on their site.
